Hey everyone, this is my very first Transformers fanfic so go a bit easy on me.

I've been a TransFan for about two or three years so I'm kinda new to this. However, my sister, Sunstreaker's Charge, has been a TransFan for about five or six years so she knows a heck of a lot more than me. But not to worry, I've done intense research so I'm not totally ignorant. Alright, now on to the important stuff.

This story (like a lot of the stories on FanFiction) is based off a dream I've been having recently. Here are a few things you need to keep in mind when reading this fic so you don't get confused.

1. This story (from the start of the first chapter) takes place about a year after Dark of the Moon. That being said, the main characters of this fic don't actually meet the Autobots till about a year after the start of the story.

So the way the timeline goes is this . . .

In 2007 Sam discovered the Autobots and set the whole stage in motion. Two years later (2009), the events of Revenge of the Fallen occurred. Three years after that, which would be 2012 (not 2011 which was when the movie was released), Dark of the Moon happened.

Now, one year later (2013), is where our story begins.

2. Megatron is NOT dead. I have brought him back really because I don't feel like getting rid of him. He needs to be there mostly because, hey, it's Megatron. Sometimes it's best to keep the big bad wolf around.

3. Sunstreaker is present! I mean, c'mon people! It's Sunstreaker and Sideswipe! They're twins! SplitSpark twins! You can't have one without the other. That and my sister is a big Sunny (gotta remember not to call him that) and 'Sides fan. She's not a fan of the slash stuff, just their close brotherhood. So Sunny's here to join the 'Bots on Earth. He is of course, yellow.

4. Sideswipe is RED. I think he looks waay better in his original color. However, I plan on combining his movie bi-pedal form with the G1 alt. So he still has is movie bi-pedal form, just in red.

5. A lot of fans will be pleased to know that Ironhide is NOT dead! That's right people, our favorite Weapons Specialist is alive and kicking in this fic of mine. I personally like his Bay-verse alt form (black GMC Topkick) a heck of a lot better than his G1 alt mode. So that's one of the things that stays the same.

6. I'm not a huge fan of the Chevy Twins, Skids and Mudflap, so I'm editing them out. I just don't like their constant bickering and fighting. I really feel that Bay downgraded the quality of Sunny and 'Sides canon brotherhood and their original comic relief placement in Transformers. So Skids and Mudflap won't be appearing, if this upsets anyone, I'm sorry.

7. Also I plan on bringing Jazz back into the picture. It's not going to be a revival or anything, he's more or less . . . there. I really like his character so I going to do the same with him like I'm doing with Ironhide. Jazz just DIDN'T die. I know that messes with canon, but it's my dream and in it Jazz is alive and well. So there.

8. Despite the story being a romance and rated M, the story is not rated so because of the romance. It's rated because of language and GORE! The romance in itself is only rated T.

Remember, this was a dream I had and I'm sticking to what my brain came up with. I go by the whole, 'Don't like, Don't read' thing. It makes sense, why read something you don't find interesting? Right? Anyway, I'm just putting that out there so no one starts up that this isn't canon or this is stupid and all that whatnot. I write because I enjoy it and I like writing things that maybe most people won't. I'm trying to be original and besides, I think its cool.
