|Reviews for Happiness is a Warm Gun|
| Harpokrates chapter 9 . 6/18
I favorited this a while ago, and would have sworn that I reviewed it, bit it looks like I haven't, and that's a shame, because this is one of the best transformers fics I've read, and THE best Megatron/Starscream I've ever read. Even rereading it for the third or fourth time, I find myself picking up little details, and actually deeply considering character motivation.
One thing I really like about the entire fic is the lack of humanization of the characters. I see this (and to be honest, do this) very often. Robots lie down to sleep, they have couches and human furniture, they percieve the world in human ways, and this seems almost deliberately avoided in your fic (makes sense, given the hatred for humans both of our narrators have). I've got to say, if Megatron went on about how being compared to an organic was the worst insult, then, for instance, got up from bed to have a warm cup of energon for breakfast, it might fall flat, but it never does.
It's a shame this story doesn't have more favorites or reviews, because it certainly deserves them.

Great story, but the end is a little melancholic. Still, I really liked!

I loved this story when I read it the first time. I'm glad to have found it again.

nice, interesting and, uh confusing. I think I will read it all over again.

Ha ha; I'm a loser. XD I eagerly awaited each chapter as this fic was released and yet I never managed to review. Bad me. Bad.
Anyway, this was a wonderful piece of writing. The relationship between Starscream and Megatron was handled very well; it was personal and sensual without getting lost in unnecessary, otherwise explicit details.
I particularly enjoyed the scenes where Megatron experienced real joy - such as finding humor in Starscream's cowardice or realizing the moments where he became smitten.
Overall, it was a joy to read. Thank-you for this wonderful little look and speculation into the two of them. :)

Megatron has a safety. Who knew?

Oh, my, I'm so sad it's the end, but I know that to keep canon alive it really had to stop here, so we (readers) can understand the reasons for such animosity between Starscream and his comander, and also, the strong bitterness the jet held for his leader (specially during G1).
Once again I tell you've done an amazing work, and I really hope you keep writing this pairing in the future, as you write them so very well.
I'm addin you to my alerts list! Happy writing and cheers!

Superb story! I'm really glad to see the fandom is getting some attention from great authors. Keep it up!

Always wanting what he can't have.
And Megs knows it and loves to play with it.
I'm torn between pity for Screamer and congratulating Megs.
I think I'm on Screamer's side, poor guy.

Loved it, although it ended a little abruptly for me.
Tracks and his DeLorean amour, aw its possible eh?
I absolutely love the imagery you use in your writing "and the smile burning on Starscream’s face was as arrogant as it was cruel" thats scarily beautiful.
Thanks for this story, hope to read more of yours soon.

Singularly dark and painful. Works well with with gray skies here.
I love the humor at the beginning concerning speed limits and car lust. You write the Autobots just as well as the Decepticons, and that is something not often seen.

Wow ... really, that's all that could go through my mind when I got to the end of the chapter. Its such an ... original and captivating idea. I mean, I never really thought of the downfalls of having the alt mode of a weapon besides that fact that one couldn't move around on his own during such time. So, its easy to say, that I'm impressed with this idea and I love how you pulled it off. It was like watching two beast circle each other but never leap forward ... until the end of this chapter. Wonderful work, I couldn't stop reading.
Anyway, I thought that was the end of the fic, but it seems that you have something else planned. Oh I can't wait.

Poor Starscream! I can't wait for more!
| Balrog Roike chapter 8 . 6/26/2009
Ouch, one complete turnaround.
And so the circle truly begins, huh?

Ohwa, so now Megatron found a way to have some real power over Starscream! I like that you portray him as a good strategist, which I've always believed him to be. That the "expected" lemon didn't happen at all was a surprise, but something tells me that somewhat, this is coming sooner or later, there is too much of a connection between them, if they were humans, I'd surely state them as soulmates!
So, memories of Skyfire... I actually didn't remember much of him from G1, really, but it seems he's so canon to being Starscream love interest that I've got used to his being present.
As always, your writing is wonderful, and leavs me even more anxious for the next installment!
