I don't even like Transformers, but damn... this is truly well-written. Probably one of the best stories on here.

I read this a long time ago and was blown away. Somehow I lost track of this story, but after many years I have managed to find it again! And it is still so great!

While the happy ending of the cute drone reuniting with its master gave me all the fuzzy and fluffy feeling, Blackout's journey have been the most interesting, and left us with much to think about :)

as far as I can tell, you got all of it right. I myself am Australian and I love reading fics that a based in Australia. it's funny that the movie got it wrong. you'd think they'd do some more reasearch. It's hard to come across fanfiction like this where it's more spiritual and deep. I love you portayel of Blackout. I'm pretty sure this is the third time i've read this fic

Quite the lovely little meditation on loss and exertion.

Fantastic! I forced myself to stay awake to finish reading this, I loved it! You are a teriffic writer, I look forward to reading more of your work!

Wow, that was a touching story (for me anyway...might have something to do with the fact that I'm Australian but oh well.) After reading a bunch of humor fics about the 'Cons this was a nice change.
Blackout and Barricade are my two fav on my 'Con list. Scorponok and Frenzy are up near the top as well.
Is anyone else confused when you read a fic and there's a bloody heap of 'Cons starting with B's? I always get them mixed up *sigh*. Same with Shockwave and Soundwave...

Oh wow... this was a really original piece of fiction. I don't care if you've used information from movies and books and such, who doesn't? But this is good, it's well written, it's moving, you capture Blackout nicely and only one other Author I've read grabs me like this when I read. Thank you this is a good story. I hope to see more from you!

Thank you for posting this story where a relative newcomer can find it-it's hard to wade through the schlock to find the real gems. This story is just...amazing. I should be seething with envy. (I kinda am-sh!)
Wonderful details, character that actually changes, gripping plot... Just...terrific! Thank you so much for sharing this story!

It’s always a pleasure to find such a deep and well written story as this one.
Fanfiction can be a playground, but it can also be a place for reflection. Blackout’s inner journey was enlightning. Through a slow and detailed narrative you managed to reach outstanding moments, such as those native women painting Blackout, one of the best images I have ever read in fanfiction.
Truly delicious fic indeed, and yet I felt sadness since the beginning of this story; not the kind of sadness that expresses itself with tears, but the other one, the one that is no stranger to smiles, the one that makes you realize is not fair to leave the real songlines behind. Life is very fragile at the end, wheter you are made or steel of flesh.
I’m glad you were tricked by a certain ROTF trailer and actually believed Blackout had made it. Keeping him dead would have been a sad but beautiful ending, but I’m glad you decided to let him live. He was the first "real" Transformer to appear in the widescreen. Just for that, he deserves to live forever in in the fictional universe as well as in our imagination.
Many thanks for this story. The minutes of pure joy reading it are priceless.

Wow this has got to be the best transformer fic I have EVER read! I’m so happy on how it ended (I don’t think I could handle blackout dieing ... again) lol I loved the thought of people drawing on him on him (and in my mind I think he would look cool with tattoos)thank you for writing the story!/_\

One of the best stories of Blackout I've read so far! It was extremely well written! :D
| Yuki Hikari chapter 1 . 6/26/2009
That was amazing! Did the tribe really get washed away?
I really love Blackout and Scorponok. And I was so happy when they brought back Blackout! Only to have his head... argh. ;-;
| Cadence Barrick chapter 1 . 6/17/2009
That was cool. Scorpy's so cute guarding his master like that.
| TFSTARFIRE chapter 1 . 5/4/2009
This story is definitely going in my favourites list, it's brilliant.
