OCs entirely, with a brief appearance by Ratchet and WheeljackSummary:
In the early days of the civil war on Cybertron, Sentinel Prime authorized several refugee vessels to take Neutrals away from the planet in hopes that they could start peaceful colonies where they would be safe. Many of these refugees were never heard from again; lost to us through time and distance. But history does record the fate of one of the vessels. The Stormchaser was three orns away from its destination when it was shot down by Decepticons in an act of cowardice and deceit. There were no survivors. That is what history tells us. But in this case, history is wrong.Warnings:
Violence, death, profanity, sexual situationsDisclaimer: Transformers belong to Hasbro and Takara, and are licensed to IDW and Dreamworks. My original characters are my own and any similarity between them and any existing characters from canon or fandom is purely coincidental. I claim no ownership by writing this work. Author's Notes:
This story was written for the National Novel Writing Month challenge for 2008. The challenge is to write 50,000 words in 30 days, so it starts out as something very rough. However, thanks to the efforts of my betas, the work has been cleaned up and edited into something that, I hope, will be enjoyed.
A huge thank you goes out to my betas: Mmouse, Storm Sailor, KinRazza, ElfChild, Okami Myrrhibis, and Okamichan. Without all of you, this story would still be sitting in the back of my PC gathering virtual dust.
If there are any errors still in this work, they are entirely of my own doing.( The Devil You Know, Prologue )
