I love this story. I've read it about a million times. Ok, like 12, but still. The role reversal and Skyfire's charade are wonderful, and the traumatization of Starscream is sickeningly funny. I like how you warped Starscream indirectly, as most stories just have Skyfire directly try to reason with him. Thanks for writing this.

No words can describe chillingly awesome your version of skyfire is.

At a few points I was not so impressed, simply because I had a hard time believing Starscream would be so appalled at Skyfire's behaviour, but the last sentence fixed it all. A really good note to a good fanfic! Good job!

That was... shocking. I can't think of anything better to say... Not to say it isn't good! It's wonderful! I just... Skyfire... like that? I even believed the whole Autobot tossing him out thing... Wow, just wow, this really made me think about not only Transformers, but society as a whole.
Fantastically written! I'm actually a little speechless! And, even if it was horrible what he did, way ta go Skyfire! :D
I have but one question... where is this sequel you speak of? XD
| Eiswolf-Zero chapter 1 . 7/31/2013
Wow, i don't think I can put into words how great this story is. I was afraid for Starscream, how everything seemed to come to an end in the dark for him, but then Skyfire! Wow
Simply beautiful how you managed that, I loved this story.

I'm really hoping you're still planning on posting the sequel. Is it on another site, or on hiatus?

I love this story! I especially love Skyfire's determination to fight for Starscream. And his deviousness in dealing with Starscream. I have always figured that Skyfire, in his past with Starscream, learned to manipulate Starscream's temper down as a survival technique for staying Starscream's friend/partner/lover/etc. Skyfire's deviousness is the quiet, unobtrusive type that sneaks up on you. Love to see the sequel, especially with Thundercracker & Skywarp. All hail to Skyfire's sneakiness!

Oh wow... This was completely amazing... I loved the ups and downs in their relationship and the story, and how it moves from one point of view to the next so smoothly and how everything develops so nicely to the point that Starscream crying is perfectly understandable. Perfectly amazing, although I think you could have split this into chapters... Although, a one-shot DOES mean we can find out what happens in the end again. :D
Skyfire is also an AMAZING actor. (I've used 'amazing' too much...) You've described both him and Starscream, as well as Skywarp and Thundercracker, perfectly. I loved the little detail about TC and Warp's concern. Getting chased by Starscream sounds fun! XD
I HOPE the sequel's out! Because... Whew! This is astonishing! :D (I apologize for the fact that I have such a pathetic amount of adjectives... D: )

To resume my reaction during this fanfic is "wouah". I rarely review but this is my favourite fanfic ever so I must to.
It is by far the most awesome and well-written fanfiction I have ever read. Really, this is a work of art and a pure masterpiece! You can read it as much as you want, you will never get tired of this.
The structure of this story was extremely well-found, it felt like you watching a thriller movie. Don't mention the amazing writing skill you have!
Everone are reallly in-character, I personaly LOVE how you wrote Skyfire'S POV at the beginning then suddenly switching to Starscream. It made the adrenaline high when you reach the end of the fanfic, to find out that it was an well-played act. Albeit being a little bit too scary and selfish in my opinion...Also how you despicted Skyfire's personality was just marvelous, he isnt the silent type but someone selfish, determined and really into Starscream.
Speaking of the seeker, His character development was just atonishing. How hateful he was toward Skyfire then you realize than he felt envious about how Megatron praised Skyfire to finally becoming the victim. I can't describe how you wrote, it is below words.
I can go on in praises, but I really love this bittersweet and thrilling story.
Have a good continuation!

This is heavy. Very well done and brilliantly characterized. You can really feel Starscream's emotional turmoil here, it shines and weaves and breaks over everything that he is.

*sniffle* this was really good. I'm looking forward to when you get the sequel up
| DemonSurfer chapter 1 . 7/23/2011
Well. I must say that at the beginning I was put off by a one shot of over 20k words. I know they weren't necessary in the slightest but honestly, chapters maybe? It would have made the trip a little less intimidating.
When I started reading the actual story I immediately forgot about the length and was swept up into it. I love how the events are almost plausible, and presented in a reasonably in-character way. Starscream doesn't immediately reaccept Skyfire as his "BFF"; he bullies him first. Skyfire has to adjust to becoming a Decepticon instead of it being an immediate thing. And, of course, Starscream having to face what he's become by watching his friend turn into an ally...
You miss, are a fantastic writer. I tip my hat to you.

Can't wait for the sequel! This was really good and Screamer really DOES have the perfect defense doesn't he? God I love seekers!
