Hi everyone. I want to share my ongoing fan fic, which I've been regularly updating for the last 8 months or so.

Transformers: Heroes on or Lexicon.
Summary/story intro: A century ago, the eons-old war between the Autobots and the Decepticons suddenly and inexplicably came to an end. Since then, many have gone their separate ways, whilst others still hold onto the bitter memories of war. Now, as Autobots and Neutrals join forces in a new directive to capture every Decepticon still left alive, it appears that the Autobots will finally get their chance to even the score, and defeat their enemies once and for all. But when they become the target of seemingly random, yet terrifying attacks, some begin to realize that the enemy may be much closer to home than anyone could have ever imagined.
Genre: Suspense/action
Word count: 100k+

Please make sure that you read the chapters in the right sequence, to avoid spoilers!

This story has passed the 100K words mark. :eek: There's probably still another 100K to go, however, before the first part of the extended story arc is completed. Obviously, this story is going to take some time to get through, so I do appreciate any reads/reviews. I do have other, shorter stories if this one is too long, which I will post for you all here in the near future.

Here's a summary of each chapter so far with links to Lexicon, but you can also view it at (see link above):
