Transforming line segments

The intent of this worksheet is to show that you can transform any line segment into any other line segment, and that the function that will do so is itself a linear function. It looks like there is an interesting relationship between the direction of the original line-segment and how much it can be transformed from the original line segment, which suggests to me that my definition is incomplete. I will next consider a model built on D = (a*x(C)+b*y(C)+c, d*x(C) + e*y(C) + f) using six different sliders. In any case, I will publish this first applet as an in between step.
