'Cause I figured an ooc introduction thread might be nice for folks. *grins*
I call myself Rebecca Hb. under normal circumstances and beckyh2112 on Livejournal.
I write fanfiction, mostly Transformers stuff. The current best archives of my stuff are my Livejournal memories and Fanfiction.Net. I'm a slasher, but I'm also pretty weird about the kinds of pairings I write. I mean, I prefer Prowl/Drag Strip to most any Prowl pairing out there. The kind of stuff I write veers more towards the crack side of every genre.
Here on Deadzone, I currently play Hook. He's a bastard, which means he'll probably treat your characters with contempt. It's not personal, it's just the way the character behaves. If it starts to bother you, let me know and I'll try to tone it down. And snuggle you.
As an admin, I primarily manage the Wiki for our game and am one of the three people in charge of looking at character applications.
Engineers can create handy things like sentry guns, health dispensers and teleporters. If you're lucky, he'll tell you where they are. If not, well, he's not there to hold your hand.
I go by Jess in life, but online I'm known by a variety of silly names, most of which have "breeze" or "loon" somewhere in them.
I both draw and write, more fanworks than original works, but some original as well. Although I have a deviantArt gallery, I never really post anything there. Most of my stuff ends up in my livejournal ( sapphirebreeze.livejournal.com/ ), but I don't do anything convenient like add to memories when I hit on something good. I do tag everything, though.
I play Long Haul here, but a Long Haul pulled from a time before his encounter with the Robo-Smasher; consequently, he's an Autobot. At this point in time, no one's bothered to tell him that somewhere down the line, he gets reprogrammed. I enjoyed playing off the "doomed innocence" aspect of the character, but any "adorableness" I've been accused of is purely accidental. As I play Long Haul, he is decent and puts high value on hard work even when the job is unpleasant (such as his own) and has a strong basic moral code ("You don't abandone insane strangers in the middle of the desert to fend for themselves; that would be wrong,") but he's rough, plain-spoken, and very practical. Just because Long Haul here is a good guy doesn't mean he's gotta be nice about it!
I'm the biggest nitpicker of the admin. Well, someone's got to pick at those nits! Being a long time RPer and someone who's dealt quite a lot with power gamers, I look most closely at character power levels. If I had my druthers, I'd remove all the special powers from all the canon characters, and take their stats down a few notches compared with their canon appearances, too! But the other admin won't let me do that. So instead, I try to keep a close eye on "improvements," powerful characters who are asking for even more than what they get in canon. I'm not strictly against powerful OCs, but if you want my backing for one you've really got to capture my interest in the app. Asking to be "on a par" or even better than characters established to be tops of their particular fields in canon is a good way to get me to start waving around alarm flags.
(I'm game balance over canonality; someone else looks closely at canon. Still, I tend to be the harshest judger. The others help to reign me in, but on the flip side, if even I have few to no complaints about a particular app, that usually means it's got a good chance of quick approval. You guys already have your characters, so this isn't much worry, but for anyone considering a second character, I hope to post something in my LJ shortly that goes through the app question by question and focuses on things that I'm likely to ping on when reading.)

Heya. I go by Dragoness Eclectic on the Internet--that's dragoness-e on LJ though. I've been mudding and playing tabletop RPGs for literally decades. Not so much the mudding any more, though I am addicted to the "Dark Age of Camelot" MMORPG.
I used to write Dragonball Z fanfiction, and Raditz will always have a special place in my heart. I wrote (and occasionally still write) G1 Transformers fanfiction, mostly about dead guys and Stunticons. www.fanfiction.net/~dragonesseclectic for my fanfics except the hardest-core slash. (Why yes, I write slash, primarily S3 Starscream/various and Dead End/various).
Fortunately for this version of Dead End, he isn't hauling around all the baggage of my fanfic Dead End. Though he may have the collection of Clark Ashton Smith ebooks in his auxiliary memory...

Guess I should post here as well. ^-^;
Uhm, hi. I’m Fadeway or Fadura-lotti on Deviantart. I draw, a lot, but about ninety percent of my stuff will never get on the net. I like drawing mechas, usually TF Beast Wars OCs since I always find copying designs of any sort difficult. I write from time to time, but mostly original stories and for RPGs. I’ve been RPing for… eight years, I think. I started with AIM chat and then forums. The other forum I’m on makes me want to head-desk repeatedly sometimes so I was looking for more sane venues of forum RP.
So now I’m Skystrike’s player, and well, she’s a bit of an oddball flier, hanging around so called ‘ground pounders’. A lot. Most of her life in fact so all the other fliers probably think she’s about to lose her mind and glue wheels on. Fortunately she’s a pretty sane character if a bit competitive and snooty around other fliers and maybe with some impulsiveness/temper problems.
You can call me Linda. I'm known as Darkfire_blade on the Padded Cell and my LJ, Hellsfirescythe on DA and ff.net. So now you all know that I write and draw a bit. Still working on getting better at the whole TF aspect of writing and drawing but it's been very enjoyable.
I'm playing Synapse, he's a young mech and he scares easy when not on the job. He doesn't like people comparing his abilities to Soundwave's....but it happens and he never comes out on top. The guy would really like some audio receptors installed on his nodes one day...

*Crashes in through the fourth wall.*
Just your unfriendly neighbourhood Omega Supreme here.
I did want to hit a few points.
This character, at least how I play him, is hideously energy inefficient. So..
1) I am not a 'win button' for the Autobots. If they want me in a fight, they had better get fuel for me first. 2) I will probably spend most of my time in defense base mode, to conserve power. This does not make the character a pushover, however. Sometimes jackdaws get away with pulling the eagle's tail. Sometimes the eagle feasts on jackdaw for dinner.
Well, Fleetwind's not likely to be eager to address this person shouting for dead High Command members when he knows other people are around, so I was going to give it at least a full round and see if anyone else would answer, but in the meantime, I was going to crosspost a mass-dump of all Decepticon-channel chatter in that thread when my turn does come up, at least until we get the threads combined.

Hello. I am your friendly neighbourhood Starscream.
Except I am not friendly. In fact, the first line in my personality answer is "Starscream is a dick." And that is something I intend to remember whenever I make a post as him. If you're after a Starscream that has bishie hair, that sounds like anyone other than a shrieky Chris Latta, that can in ANY way be construed as 'noble', that can be turned good by 'the power of luuuv', or for that matter who could love anyone other than himself, I'm afraid you're going to have to go somewhere else for him. Starscream. Is. A dick.
I'm also known as Scott but commonly known online as invisiblemoose, or just plain Moose. I prefer the former to the two latter. I have a livejournalwhich I update regularly and check multiple times a day. You can usually find me on AIM.
While I am very stubborn about what Starscream is NOT, I'm open to what he actually IS. If you have some thoughts for roleplaying, I've got several chat programs in my profile and I invite constructive criticism.
