"Everyone halt!" Stormwing glared around at his class. The seekers, all still fresh from the factory in his optics, stopped their training exercises and started to fly over to him. He glanced around, the corners of his mouth tugging down, his fingers tapping on his arm. Once they were all hovering in front of him, he turned and activated the holovid imbedded in the wall.

"—news. Unfortunately, a battle led by Lord Megatron did not go as planned. A large blow was dealt to the Autobots, but we did not go unscathed.

"Elite Decepticons attacked the major Autobot base on the alien resource world Earth. Early reports indicate large Autobot losses, including the deaths of Optimus Prime and many of his command officers.

"However, our side also lost a large number of our Elite. First and foremost, Lord Megatron was destroyed in a fight to the death with the Autobot Prime. Also destroyed are Skywarp, Thundercracker, the Insecticons..."

Stormwing didn’t notice as one of the students—a blue and purple one with an unusual alternate form—fled the room.

Krys! You're doing one of those 30_kisses type things, aren't you? ^_^ Ooh, I look forward to reading more of your ficlets...

Heh. This is called fanchar100. And It's been the better part of a year between the last fic I wrote for the challenge and this one, so it's going to take me a looooong time.

100? Meaning 100 stories? Oh good lord. That would take me forever. o_O Girl, you have a lot of discipline and determination to be able to do that. I hope you finish your project. ^_^

lol And I've only done 3 of them, and it's been over a year since I signed up. It's gonna take forever, but the only challenges I knew of at the time were all 100-fic ones. I hope I finish it too, though.

Really? There are many 30_something challenges out in the LJ realm. You could take a look at 30_kisses and find all the other communities that they are affiliated with. I am currently doing a 30_angsts challenge with the pairing Kenji x Uriko from Bloody Roar. (Do you remember who they are? XD)

Hey, just let the inspiration hit you and write! ^_^ I'll certainly be watching your entries for new updates.

I've seen other people do them. *nods*

Heh, yeah, I remember them. Kenji's in your icon there. =P

I'm writing when I have time. Though I have two creative writing classes right now...

I think that might be a little easier for you to do rather than going for 100 on your first time. O_O Impressive, though.

Yay! You remember! ^_^ I loved all our giggly talks on how hot all the BR guys were... Those were the days...

Say, what classes are you taking right now? I took Creative Writing once, but I really didn't like my professor. >.> She turned me off of writing for a while...

I have Water Policy (yuck!), Intro to Fiction Writing, Intro to Poetry Writing, Oceanography, and scuba. I'm fine with all but Water Policy. It's joint-taught, and has an insane amount of homework.

Water Policy? What the hell is that? o.O

Fiction writing and poetry writing, my dear? You already know how to do that! XD

Wow, 5 classes. You sure are a dedicated student! ^_^ *would die with that many classes X.x*

Heh. Water Policy is about how water is managed legally, and how it affects written pieces. Very boring and horrible class.

And I'm actually learning a lot in the writing classes. It's really good experience, especially for getting very varied feedback.

Hey, we need four lectures to be considered a "full time" student, and Scuba only meets for two hours a week, and that's one session a week. We only get partial-credit for it. But it's fun!

At least four classes... wow. I'm glad that all I need are my 12 units to be considered full-time. I couldn't squeeze in all those classes with my work schedule. But I think you've got real guts to be that devoted. ^_^

Water Policy sounds really boring; why the hell do you have to take such a class?

Ahh, well, if those classes are helping you, then good. ^_^ Your writing definitely has improved since you last posted up stories of the old Transformers series, so I guess they were worth it.

As short as this ficlet is, it is just right. It's a "snap of a moment" that stands strongly - somehow, that almost-understated glimpse of Wingblade running out of the room is powerful even though (or precisely because?) we don't see actually see her grieving - it says all that needs to be said.

*nodnodnods* It's an almost passive-agressive way of showing her grief, which is what writers should do more of, according to my fiction writing prof. Heh. Either way I do love it because we just glimpse her, and her name isn't even said.
