Trivia page for Black Crayons

  • Author Appeal: There is a brief mention of someone named Alexis in Not According to Plan. Bookworm Gal is a fan of Transformers Armada and it was that series that got her invested in the Transformers franchise as a whole.
  • I Knew It!:
  • Out of Order: Most of the series was published on Fanfiction.Net in Anachronic Order. The series in chronological order can be found on the main page, the author's profile on Fanfiction.Net, and as a series on Archive Of Our Own.
  • Reality Subtext:
    • Characters being annoyed with Skids and Mudflap's behavior and Ironhide telling them that their accents could be considered offensive matches up quite nicely with what the audience thought of them in Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen.
    • In A Child's Innocence, Laserbeak disguises himself as a smaller, pink version of Bumblebee and visits Annabelle at her house. The author has stated when she first saw Transformers: Dark of the Moon, she thought the little girl that Laserbeak visited while eliminating the Decepticon's human collaborators was supposed to be an older Annabelle Lennox.
  • Sequel Gap: A Child's Innocence was uploaded on Fan Fiction Dot Net on July 11, 2011 and completed on April 2, 2012. The complete story was uploaded on Archive of Our Own on June 20, 2014. The next installment in the series Not According to Plan was uploaded on and AO3 on June 26, 2017.
  • Talking to Himself:
    • Wheelie and Skids both have Tom Kenny as their VA.
    • Ironhide and Barricade also share a voice actor in Jess Harnell. They converse with each other in My First Decepticon.
  • What Could Have Been:
    • Black Crayons was originally a short one-shot before the author decided to expand it into a series.
    • When writing A Child's Innocence, the author decided between bending the events of the Black Crayons series to match with Dark of the Moon or bending the events of the film to match the series. She went with the latter option.
    • The author decided on whether or not to spare Soundwave from the events of the third movie before deciding to go through with the former.
