Title: A Wing and a Prayer - Chapter 5 (Read or Download at AO3)
Pairing: Skyfire/Silverbolt

Summary: The problem with falling in love with an Aerialbot is that his brothers are pretty much part of the package. And the problem with falling in love with someone who has unfinished business from his past is that sometimes the unfinished business is Starscream...

Notes: I ATEN'T DEAD. Nor is the fic. Various people have been expressing interest in this pairing recently, which makes me madly happy, and when I am madly happy I write more. :D

Can you hear me calling out your name? / You know that I'm falling and I don't know what to say... )

Comments are love. :)

Title: A Wing and a Prayer - Chapter 4 (Read or Download at AO3)
Pairing: Skyfire/Silverbolt

Summary: The problem with falling in love with an Aerialbot is that his brothers are pretty much part of the package. And the problem with falling in love with someone who has unfinished business from his past is that sometimes the unfinished business is Starscream...

Notes: ... please don't let's even calculate the exact amount of time it has taken me to write this chapter. -_- I am hoping to get back into more regular updates, so, uh... COMMENTZ PLZ.

And if I haven't mentioned it yet - you should all go and listen to "Edge of Seventeen" RIGHT NOW because it is my Skyfire/Silverbolt + Aerialbots theme and I would make it into a music vid if I had the footage. But since I don't, I've been stealing the lyrics for cut tags.


I've been searching for an answer up the stairs and down the hall / Not to find an answer, just to hear the call / Of a night bird singing 'Come away, come away...' )

Title: A Wing and a Prayer - Chapter 3 (Read or Download at AO3)
Pairing: Skyfire/Silverbolt

Summary: The problem with falling in love with an Aerialbot is that his brothers are pretty much part of the package. And the problem with falling in love with someone who has unfinished business from his past is that sometimes the unfinished business is Starscream...

Notes: So this ended up being a chapter almost entirely dedicated to Things Not Actually The Romance, but oh well. :) For the record, if I didn't mention it before – this, like all my TF stuff, is based mostly on the G1 cartoon canon (which is, of course, terribly vague and contradictory, but also a lot more light-hearted than, for example, the recent IDW comics). Also, I have written a teal deer explanation of where I got this pairing from over here in my journal, for those interested.


Show me the slow, graceful flow of age / I will fall with an age-old desire to please... )

I see you doing what I've tried to do for me / With the words of a poet and the voice of a choir / And a melody... and nothing else mattered. )

Title: A Wing and a Prayer - Chapter 1 (Read or Download at AO3)

Summary: The problem with falling in love with an Aerialbot is that his brothers are pretty much part of the package. And the problem with falling in love with someone who has unfinished business from his past is that sometimes the unfinished business is Starscream...

Skyfire/Silverbolt. Follows on from the second story in More than Just a Passing Glance.

Notes: So I've been promising this for months, and then I realised the pairing was starting to work its way into everything I was writing, at which point I thought maybe I should stop wibbling and just get on with the damn thing. I have most of it outlined and various parts written. It's going to be long, pure romance, occasionally angsty, and more often than not flufftastic. The story really starts here, with a chance meeting and a promise, but you don't have to have read that first.

From the moment that I first laid eyes on him / All alone on the edge of seventeen... )

Warnings: ... love at first sight? And some mecha kissing/touching.
Pairings: various, all slash

Summary: Sometimes you just know. Five (and a half) stories of love at first sight.

Notes: ... this was supposed to be a set of drabbles but, uh, it got away from me. Like, really got away from me. This is mostly because my definition of 'love at first sight' doesn't necessarily involve sight, and doesn't negate the need for establishing common ground between characters. :) With huge thanks to [livejournal.com profile] saltedpin for feedback!


2. take my hand

Silverbolt is falling, twisting frantically to try and regain equilibrium, but his panic has shorted out his stabilising circuits and his left engine just won't fire no matter what he does....... )
