Con Jazz is such a delicious fanon trope, and you do write it beautifully :) Nicely done, and excellent, vivid descriptions of the torture without being gratuitous. It had a no nonsense quality to it which made me believe that Jazz truly did dislike what he was doing, but had become numb to it, until something woke him up.

It's a good thing you mentioned this in the other story, or I wouldn't have known to look for it. I thought the title didn't seem familiar, but I had thought I'd read all your works. Seems that, in fact, I haven't, and missed quite a lot of recent updating. Suits me, because I wrote yesterday and am ready for a break.
I actually this is my favorite of everything J/P that you've written so far. It's true that HeartsofEternity wrote a very similar plot (Jazz torturing Prowl and later defecting for the sake of Prowl) but you tackled it in an utterly different way. Everything was so personal here, the little touches detailing Jazz's struggle to survive in the Decepticon ranks, the knife edge that he walked while on the Nemesis. The scene with him and Megatron was dark and intense and disturbingly hot, and somehow I just loved it that Jazz bent over to take it like a dutiful subordinate, but was brave enough to talk back and not grovel.
I also, as you could guess, adored the moments between him and Soundwave. (I should note here that I have a strongly similar scene regarding the way Jazz deals with Soundwave when in his mind, and I would like to assure you that it's been written since June, though it probably won't be showing up in my updates until December. There is no way I can prove that I wrote it before reading this, but I shall give you my word and that will be that. It was sort of an obvious idea in retrospect anyway.)
And more overall love for the chemistry between Jazz and Prowl, Prowl's calm attitude and Jazz's easygoing behavior to cover his absolute distaste for torture - but Jazz is no softie, and the way he was calculating who he'd have to kill to keep himself alive after the whipping proved that neatly. And the ease of both his and Prowl's escape should prove to Megatron just why you don't take your best spies for granted. Lesson learned, if at a rather high price.

This was a really entertaining and well-written story that I enjoyed reading :)
It's nice to know that, even though you still made Jazz a decepticon, he wasn't as cold blooded or cruel as a typical decepticon.
I sincerely hope that you continue to make interesting fics as this was :)
Keep up the good work :D

I have seen a couple of these sort of stories, the Jazz-was-a-con plotline. I think that I like yours the most.
( I was listening to my Ipod shuffling while reading this, and there is a Linkin Park song called Breaking the Habit that particularly fits this.)
That last straw pops up pretty often, doesnt it? Every mech has their breaking point. Its pretty strange, because that human saying of the straw breaking the camels back is essentially what happens to my OC. Great minds think alike, right? XD

Loved the story! No matter how many Romance stories there are written for Prowl/Jazz I just love reading more, especially when they are well written stories like yours.
