I like this idea! The Autobots are sooooo stupid! Something I can't quite work out though... What exactly happened in the last chapter? Did Starscream go mad and attack everyone?

I can't handle to truth! What's the truth? I'm reading this too quickly for my own good...

Oh wow... What an intense chapter! (Sorry, I'm not actually reading in the correct order.. Decided to jump around a bit whilst I work my way through Sound Crew. :P
Yep... Starscream sure does know how to make an entrance alright... Although that definitely reminded me of Sunstorm when he walked in... And now I'm scared of him again... For one moment he seems like a sleek, dark cat... You know he could still claw you and bite you, but at the moment, you could stroke him and pet him and he wouldn't mind... And then you try to touch his food, and you'll find your hand ripped right off...
What does Starscream mean though, by 'If you ever leave me...?' (I'm sorry... My mind is automatically shipping them together...) And poor Warpy... D: I love having the Elite Trine together in a trio... I love those three together... But the Starscream you write... *Whew* Really is one scary dude. I don't know how to think of him now in Coming To Terms. O_O Poor Jazz! He's gonna have his tires ripped off! O_O
Is this the end? ): It's status is Complete... And I'm disappointed. ): I would love to see a lot more of this... Preferably more light-hearted stuff. I swear... Dealing with a Starscream like THIS cannot be... Healthy. XD

This is the Starscream I'm more used to. Is it bad that I found myself laughing my head off at those poor soldiers due for inspection by Screamer? *laughs and shakes head* He is like a particularly threatening teacher... If he were a teacher... He'd probably be the most unpopular one, I bet... XD
I like the little TC and Screamer bickering... Heh, what happened to that terrifying Air Commander with the wit as sharp as a sword? :P Wow... I just realised that I've only dared use their nicknames now...
LOL... '... Starscream's tirade scoured battle-proven veterans down to scared recruits being chased by their first gun-waving drill sergeant' XD XD I would probably have wet myself in fear if he were coming to inspect me! :P

Love how Starscream is the 'witch'.
And the three Coneheads... For some reason I keep on imagining them with O_O expressions on their faces... But that kinda explains why they were... like that, before.
Another brilliant ending! That little, uncertain question hanging in the air... (And I need to stop using the word 'brilliant' so often... But no other word is coming to mind! TTTT)
Onstage, offstage... If only the Autobots knew about the two-faces *almost* every Decepticon wore! I can't even begin to imagine the horror it would be, for them to wake up one day from their happy little world and realize that those 'clowns' they have not even been taking seriously take off their mask and show them their true face...
I love this fic too much. I'm so glad it's complete, I can make my way slowly through it.

Ohmygod this chapter... This chapter... *splutters incoherently* Oh god... This is just...
I've always loved it when Starscream was... praised in a fanfic. His skills as a flier, his titles, his genius... But this... Wow... Whilst I find myself admiring his genius and the horrifying power he possesses, it's still a... scary thing. I can only imagine what it must be like for Ramjet. Probably somewhat frustrating, to know you could crush that weakling if you really wished, but there's no way you will dare to touch him... Not when he's smiling at you like that... No way...
XD I bet Starscream's the type of small guy robbers will target when he walks down an alley, only to find themselves backing away in terror... (Does he study psychology or something? Better question, do YOU study psychology? Because this is so fragging gripping... And I'm not even IN their positions...)
Whew... Politics... I've always found it interesting... And Starscream wields it so powerfully... Poor poor Thundercracker... Poor Seekers, in fact! I've never really been a fan of the Coneheads, but under these circumstances... *shiver* I really can't see a way out... But I do find the thought of Shockwave playing in this Decepticon politics very interesting... For a guy on another planet to pose so much threat... I've underestimated him.
Fantastic ending, BTW! This is just so... brilliant. 'What? That we were all secretly idiots and no one's noticed until now?' By Primus Starscream... No one's gonna BELIEVE that you randomly turned into an idiot, even over 4 million years of stasis!

Huh... This chapter was, uh... a lot shorter than what I expected, but that was because I was all tensed up and staring open-mouthed at the screen waiting for Starscream to unleash his fury.
This is just brilliant! Whilst it terrified me, I do like this controlling, powerful Starscream, quite, uh, contrary to most Starscreams I read in most fics. The one no one respects, the one everyone openly teases for his ambitions, constantly mocked by his fellow wingmates and the one who constantly moans over the fact that he's stuck with idiots.
What can I say? I have found myself terrified by Megatron as he's beating Starscream... But this... This is by far the worst type of torture I have ever come across, and... I actually quite enjoyed the contsant tension. You did a good job portraying it. I really felt like I was standing there in the room, stiff with terror... I can't even imagine what it must be like to be Skywarp, stroked and petted and... Oh god... Do I want to know what happens to him next...?
This is definitely a Starscream I want to stay away from...
| Ersatz Writer chapter 1 . 2/3/2013
XD I love the explanations here for all of Megatron's... irrationalness in the actual cartoon. I'm not gonna be able to watch G1 again without laughing at the Autobot's stupidity now, and that is something I think I'll quite enjoy doing.
But if this was their actual plan... I am not surprised they became such a mighty empire. Everything's so carefully planned out and executed... The wolf dressed as a sheep dressed as a wolf, in some ways... Y'know, if it wasn't for this fic, I would have mistaken all those 'distractions' as materials for a children's cartoon! O_O
