I have spent the last few weeks with Bumblebee as my fic addiction. Red Carpet Romance is my favourite, but I was also a fan of everything else by that author.
Last night, I read a really cute one named Signs. It, and the rest of that author's work, was extremely British though if that bothers you. Took me out of it to "hear" Yang speaking like David Tennant.
y8ay8a's fic is really great up until the horrible last chapter since she decided to adhere to the show. She's slowly rewriting it though, so I bet she adds more (or abandons it like On & On).
It was "fanfic" as fuck, but I enjoyed Fire and Gold. This is the kind of story you need to be really into the pair to enjoy since the really good stuff is bookended by typos and a forced adopted kid thing. I give this one props for keeping Sun as a likable character, utilizing the parents very well, having a more interesting racism subplot than the show, and actually focusing on Blake and Yang 100% of the time rather than sidetracking with other shit. More than anything though, I enjoy that this fic not only acknowledges that Yang is a paraplegic, but has a few scenes where it's an issue.
My biggest complaint with Bumblebee fanfics is how many authors completely gloss over the robot arm. I want angst with that shit. It's enough to make me want to write again. I am really forgiving of fics that use the arm.>>2567056
I had trouble getting into this one. I was bored out of my mind then lost interest when Blake had that chapter where she thought about all the dudes she fucked.
