| anondecepticon chapter 1 . 4/16
You know, I don’t think I’ve ever read this one, and that is a tragedy because it is brilliant! I particularly loved Dead End with the low blow on Drag Strip (shouldn’t have insulted Breakdown, DS) and the mental picture of him creeping up on the target and delivering his lines like a bored waiter reading off the specials (and then scaring the frag out of Swindle.) I also loved that Breakdown was the only one to actually complete his assignment in spite of his nerves (Must have been a low-flying duck, lol). I was so proud of him.
The only way this fic could be any better is if it included Drag -er, Death Strip’s attempt, which I have no doubt would be hammy enough for an entire picnic’s worth of sandwiches. It might even involve a cape...

Huh. Didn't expect poor Breakdown to do the job properly. Thought Rider would. I'll feel sorry for them if Dragstrip and Motormaster come through.
I was kinda looking forward to seeing Swindle's extortion scheme fail.

Awesome. This story was great! I laughed pretty hard at the "Death strip" thing XD

Oh Dead End. I can just imagine him parked in front of the building reciting in a Soundwave voice his lines... XD (Now that I've seen what he looks like, I should probably stop imagining him as a black Porsche...) And Optimuswindle. This was just hilarious, and good old Breakdown. :) He seems like the nicest Stunty. I loved this fic so much! I hope you'll carry on writing Stunticon fics, because I am in love with those guys. So, so much. :P

In my last review on your fic, "The Worst Race", I suggested you be a writer...then I went to your page, and promptly realized, you are one. So with no further compliments left, I leave with this:
I f*cking love you.
Seriously, keep up the good work.
I've noticed you haven't updated in a while, and while I definitely wish you would (*cough* Crash Course *cough**cough*) it's been a good year or so since I've considered writing/updating any of my fanfictions or short stories. Meh, no big deal.
Still, I'm so buying your book when it comes out...

I love your Stunticon stories! Keep them coming, these are really good character studies, for characters I didn't know very well a while back you've got me feeling like these guys are my cousins! Also love Swindle in this.

Fun. I loved Wildrider's attempt at the job. I hope Swindle learned something from working with the Stunticons.

I love the 'win-win-win' line. And that Dead End can sound indifferent without trying. lol. Love how Wildrider and Dead End 'messed up'. I love the mental image of Swindle getting passionate in a 'the humans are with us' speech. The 20 miles under the speed limit thing is very not scary. Good thinking/team work with Swindle and Breakdown getting the humans to look away from Breakdown. Low flying duck! :P Darklash is funny, and Breakdown's reaction is funnier. Great acting! Love your work.

Hee, very entertaining story. XD

Its very Swindle like to sell protection to humans.
Thank you for posting another very enjoyable story. Being, mostly, ground vehicles and spending so much time out of the base, its very believable that the Stunticons and the Combaticons would have find ways to coexist in the human society.
I bet Swindle learned to better not do business with some Stunties. Perhaps he would have better results trying to buy some Autobots for his charade. Some of them may have a price.
I loved Breakdowns paranoia (hahahaha, Darklash!). Somehow we always took for granted that he hated to be stared at, so your explanation was a great contribution to the fandom. And I SO loved his team loyalty too.
I wonder how much one have to pay to be under the protection of the Combaticons . I would pay only to see the show, especially if the attacker is “Death Strip.”
