I can't express in words how much this fic means to me. Optimus Prime was one of three characters that I count as the closest things I had to a stable, positive father figure. Reading this, years after I first did, it still brings emotions welling up - although no tears. I haven't cried in a long time, no matter how much I might wish to.
Thank-you for this.

Brilliant. Nuff said. (bows)

I teared up once I finished reading this. Not that I have much experience with this sort of dilemma, but it spoke to me flawlessly.
Your style of writing, the characters, everything about this story is stunning. The fact that it doesn't actually take place in the Transformers universe is a creative path to take.
The young boy's choice to give away his toy to the two children is a brave sacrifice for one his age. I admire the fact that he considers Prime to be his hero (which, in fact, many people in real life do). My sympathy was directed towards him and his family, who weren't living in a real home, until the mother got a job and a house.
This work of art is gorgeous and should be recognized by the entire Transformers community. I'm grateful for you posting this.

Absolutely brilliant. I'm not a Transformers fan in any sense, but this was incredibly poignant. Well done.

Call me a bleeding heart or too sensitive, but I literally teared up when reading this. Bravo, man, bravo.

That's what... *Sniffle* He was to all of us in the 80s.
He was our father figure that we watched and adored growing up.

I love this story. Short, with a real punch, and a take on the 'bots that's unique in the fandom. Optimus would be proud.

He is not a toy, but similar to a spirit. Great story!

When I was a child I never had a particular attachment to my Optimus. He was one of many. I knew he was the leader, the strongest, the bravest. My childish whims did not see what you see here. I was not so fortunate. I see now. You have brought tears to my eyes.

It's amazing what a simple, silly work of fiction can do for a person, isn't it?
