Title: A Wing and a Prayer - Chapter 9 (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: Wow. That's certainly got to be some kind of record for gaps in updating. The abridged version of why: about this time last year I had glandular fever (mono) and was very ill for about six weeks. I was lucky enough not to get the fatigue afterwards, but it was such a big break in my life that it threw everything off, including the next chapter of this. Since then I've been up and down with writer's block, real life stuff, and the growing feeling that I'd waited too long and there wasn't any point in updating now. Fortunately, I got past that, helped by a lot of you lovely people who are still reviewing and waiting hopefully for more. This is a long chapter and that's after I split it in two! The next one is mostly written and should be up in a week or so. I've managed to get into the habit of writing daily for the last month, so I am hoping to get chapters up much much quicker - if I can hit one every two weeks, I will. I'm also working on 'Fire and Ice'. Thanks again for all your reviews!

By the way, if you would like to read "A Wing and a Prayer" on an e-reader, you can download all of it so far from the Archive of Our Own in whatever format you prefer. I've tested the Kindle version and it looks pretty good!

Notes: ... is... is it possible? Are the protagonists finally starting to get a clue?? :O FUN FACT: originally I planned this with a couple of fluff scenes at the start and then for the chapter break to come after, oh... scene 3? And then I realised that at my current rate of updating that would be cruel. So instead we get to finish on Plot. :)

I know I say this every time, but the next one should hopefully be quicker. I am on a writing schedule at the moment that seems to be working out quite well. Being reminded that people want to read is a big help, and thank you to the people who've reviewed recently despite the gap!

ALSO quick question: I have a soundtrack for this fic. It is semi-spoilery in that it follows the plot quite closely. Would people be interested if I posted it nonetheless? For one thing it will explain where I'm getting the cut tag quotes from...
