Hmm. Uh, what *kind* of articles on Humans and Transformers were you looking for, exactly? I already wrote an essay for my personal blog on the literary merits of having Human characters in Transformers that I could clean up/expand, but maybe you intended a more in-universe or catalogging article instead?

I'm being purposely open-ended on the matter.

If you think what you've written will work, then clean it up and submit it. Fortune favors the bold.

Same question as Jeysie.

What kind of "articles, writings, and op-eds" are you looking for?
Reviews? (*coughcoughYouTubecough*)
Opinionated opinions? (There's plenty of those on the forums. :P )
Fan-fiction? (The pandemonial possibilities are endless...)
Serious essays taking place in-universe? (If so, why don't we just hang a sign that says "Nerd-a-tron"?)
Humorous musings of a decidedly cynical nature? (Hey! That's me!)

Inquiring minds are somewhat interested in this issue. :mrgreen:

I guess it was a matter of... I've got more than enough stuff to keep me busy that I didn't want to spend time cleaning it up if the concept itself isn't what you had in mind.

(Will likely definitely try to tackle the "new fans" topic, though... got a *whole* lot of musings on that one...)

Consider it as having just enough rope to hang yourself with. :)

And of course there are plenty of oportunities to put your opinions up on the web. What you don't get by going that route is a platform by which tens of thousands of people everyday are at least aware of what you write.

Now, I'd prefer not to have fan-fiction tossed my way...

I'm not an authority on any of these subjects, but if anyone wants an editor, I can do that sort of thing. I took Professional Writing in college for two years and graduated with honours.

Well, I've just had a go, and sent something in for submission.

Here's hoping...

I'm no writer, but I hope to have an article ready by the end of the week.
