Brilliant work Petey, I don’t mean to simply echo all the previous comments but it truly has been a privilege to read such an amazing piece of work. A great read on my 15 hour flight home, so much thanks. If you ever edit and compile this thing, please upload it for us, love to read it again cause there are SO many details, cameos and forethought you put into writing it. Who knew Archforce would have had such a role, thanks for the clarification about Megatron’s staged murder though… had a feeling but wasn’t sure. But jumping into the last chapter itself, I think the seeds that you dropped throughout the series were great. Kept on nudging about A-7 and A-3's shared history plus you provided the Ballad of A-7 and that A-7 had indeed gone down the Oracle’s path before. Nice addition of the Incindermech’s history to it though, I love little tidbits like that. Always knew Jetfire’s spark would be that of the Decepticon that aided in revolt against the Quints, but I had no idea Alpha Trion could pick the spark plucked from the Matrix. Didn’t think they’d say his name was Skyfire though, another one of those nostalgic nods to the G1 show and toy lore. A very bittersweet ending since you know the Autobot's reward for winning the war would be exile from a few episodes back - kinda like watching Star Wars Episodes 1 to 3 knowing the Republic would fall. I thought you settled each Autobot’s way of cooping with the Pax very well, nice to see where the bots we grew up with since episode one part. Especially Mirage’s bit – is he just exploring space or did he follow Prime? Oh and major props for keeping up with Counter-Punch’s development throughout the whole epic and keeping all those characters going and keeping the balance with their development. Only one thing bothered me bout the last chapter – Prime and Alpha Trion never got to have that talk! Nice epilogue, thank you very much for the Rattrap cameo. Vespa system mention too – never though such a minor detail from that BW episode would make it in but another testament to the research you put into your work. I thought it was quite an ingenious way to link Rattrap and Arcee together via the Daniel tether. I’ve always thought in the BW/BM era “Optimus” would be a nice title, an honor so to speak to carry. Anyway it was cool to see Optimus Grand in the scheme of things. No mention of Magnaboss though? Wondering if you could clarify a few things for me - Obsidian and Strika- thought they’d get a mention or maybe I missed it. Did the Pax on the Maximal side of things ever note anything about blocking out parts of the history? Cause there was the mention of “classified records” about Starscream in Possession. Also hard to believe with Arcee on staff that they’d ever approve the Protoform X project. So the project is done? No more little additions? It’s such a rich universe you’ve created from comic and show lore including the BW/BM timeline. Would love to see your take on continuing things from the end of BM – or will you be returning to the tech-spec world of BW? Either way hope to see you continue writing.
