I've read this story many times, and it's still as wonderful as the first time I read it. Exhilirating to run with the herd, to 'meet' everyone (I always get a little thrill when they find Prime), heartbreaking to see the herd get scattered and attacked...and the wolves and cats, Megatron and the rest...but the icing on the cake is Mirage's flight back home.
Absolutely gorgeous. Bravo.

This is one of the most unique stories I've ever read.

This was a great story. There have been a lot of 'the robots become humans' stories, but I've never read one where they become animals. err...other then Beast Wars the show that is. Plus, Mirage is one of my favorite Autobots which made this even better for me! You did a fantastic job writing this, and I look forward to reading more of your work.

I'm impressed, I'll have to keep an eye on your up coming works... after i finish reading all your others. Well done.

I'm usually pretty shy about reviewing people's fics, but this is too good for me to just hit the back button and not say anything. I love horses and I think you did a great job capturing how the Autobots communicated wtih each other. I love the bit where Bluestreak got his foot caught. I really love how the twins still wanted to be the same warriors they've always bee even in vulnerable organic bodies. I'm stumbling over myself trying to put into words all the things I love about this fic. I'm usually wary of fics where characters are turned into animals, but you handled this beautifully. And look, you've made me channel Bluestreak and babble endlessly. Awesome job.

oh, man, where to begin?
Ok, my favorite parts:
Silver wolf's glittering grin. /Food/.
Ratchet's fantastic tantrum
the whole 'Bluestreak caugh in a bush' thing
and Sideswipe's "I wouldn’t ditch you, you idiot"
oh, and that 'It's all your fault' bite Wheeljack received.
I loved what you did with equine body language - it's goddamn accurate, had no problems picturing it.
Well, yea, it IS weird. But it's still lovely! :D

Lost in the fic, love for it, I can only show it by reviewing. 'Tis Dragonfurry, BTW. I applaud you; a great fic, as always.

Two things that I really love about this fic. 1-The first line. It never fails to crack me up. 2-How you delve into the psychology and behaviour of horses and the herd, like the details here 'He wasn’t sure why they should be so nervous, or why he should feel a bizarre, underlying twinge of hostility at the group of stallions, but there it was.' I also love how you map the Autobot's personalities onto their equine selves, like Bluestreak still managing to be chatty with his body language. Really, really great stuff!

I've always loved this one. And the artwork it has spawned too.
| Mabel-Zen chapter 1 . 6/30/2006
This has to be one of the most queer, weird and wonderful TF fictions I have read.
Transformers as horses? Well, horse language in here has really caught my interest. I love horses, but the way you put the way the 'horses' communicated really intrigued me. I never thought things like that could occur for horses, but oh well.
I'd rather Mirage thanking Wheeljack than throttling him! Everyone seemed to have gained something, or learnt a lesson (other than there's more ways to communicate than yelling at each other, and the twins learnt what a world of hurt and illness is like) and that also warmed me.
Me likeys this story muchies! Shouldn't be ignored, should be read by all horsy-TF fans that exist!

I love this. _ It's definitely my favorite TFs-turned-into-other-beings fic. And I love horses. It's kinda nice to see that they don't talk, but communicate through different whickers, snorts and squeals. You've written those so well.
I especially love the parts with Wheeljack and/or Ratchet. And Prowl, too. Plus those scenes with Air Raid. Makes me think what the other Aerialbots, and the Protectobots, look like as horses...
One of my definite fave scenes is that when Ratchet appears for the first time. That scene was so like him. _
Oh, have you got any ideas what the rest of the Autobots would be as horses (I mean, colors.. and maybe breeds, too)? I figure Fireflight'll be red... sort of a clumsy breed? Pipes is probably the same color as Optimus.
