Go To

Rolling Out is a Worm and Transformers crossover.

There are more than just one kind of boat in the Graveyard. Beneath it, hidden from human eyes, an alien vessel has lain since before mankind even learned to bang rocks together. When one of those aboard awakens to a strange world, it encounters a certain Taylor Hebert on her second night out. Crossover with Transformers G1, and a slight AU.


  • Alternate Universe: Besides Optimus being around, Annette is alive, and Danny appears to be dead.

  • Cool Starship: The Ark, bigger than Brockton Bay itself.
  • Dyson Sphere: Cybertron is one in this continuity, though incomplete.
  • Hollywood Hacking: Optimus does this, using eBay to order solar panels after giving himself bank accounts.
  • Humanity Is Infectious: Minor example, but Optimus quickly starts picking up human colloquialisms.
  • Rule of Cool: Optimus basically chose the English (or rather, Latin) translation of his name that sounded the coolest, as Taylor calls him out on.
  • Spanner in the Works: Optimus is in the right place to rescue Taylor from Lung.
  • We Are as Mayflies: Optimus lampshades this briefly in chapter 6.
