I'm a well read grad student who's bluntly honest about all things, although I try to be most honest about myself.
At least, Optimus Prime and a small group of Autobots do. I wasn't a big fan at first read, but I'm coming to appreciate just how brilliant a move this was: the focus stays on the Cybertronians, not the humans, and even then? Thundercracker adopting a dog and becoming the worst screenwriter ever is just hilarious.
Somehow, even when he's mangling screenplays and writing in general, Thundercracker just wins me over. Like completely over.
Loved this, and read it early on in the month, right before the Hugo packet hit.
