Review of chapter "School Hardships" from MarcusFenix

I love this fic!

Yes, I'll admit, when I first started reading it, I got a little iffy with the idea of them being weird Transmetal/Pretender/-changer models. Once I got into it, it's become awesome.

Can't wait to find out who the next "Predacon" is...or will it be a "Decepticon"?
Comments from author:
It is a little hard to visualize the Predacons inside their Pretender shells at times, if only I was an artist too I might be able to figure out what they look like while their inside the shell, like if anything on their robot forms needs to shrink down or something for them to fit. Not to mention what they look like when they break out of their shells, that visual alone is probably so awesome in my mind but so hard to convey I just stick to shedding their shells and voila easy as pie.

I also really wish that Hasbro had made a Transmetal Scorponok that wasn't just a McDonalds Happy Meal toy, the way I envisualize his new form is just so wicked and bad-ass he definately deserves a full on plastic representation.

The new character coming to the rescue has already been introduced in a way in this very chapter, so technically his spark is that of a Maximal, but since he is from the future I'm not keeping him around too long in the present. I'm beginning to see a larger picture for future Xander and his family to interact with, I don't know if I'll touch up on that in a seperate story or right here, but the new arrival who is going to totally pwn the Herald's ship is definately a big hint at that potential future story line.

So glad you're enjoying this, that's what I strive for to entertain my readers. Hopefully I didn't go totally overboard by introducing the four Vehicons, not that they'll be sticking around for very long.

Review of chapter "When They Were Bad" from JediKnight
Good job on the new addition to the story, I hope you'll add more soon.
Will Air Razor and Tigatron turn good at some point?

Review of chapter "Predacons in Sunnydale" from JediKnight
I think Arachnicons would be a good new name to Tarantulas' Predacons. Please do your best to add mor soon, I'm looking forward to reading more.
Comments from author:
Yikes, it has taken me a way long time to get back to this, but hey at least Chapter Four is the longest one so far. It seems you're the only one to offer up a suggestion. I don't know if I will go with Arachnicons, but hey we're going to get totally focused on this story again now.

Review of chapter "Predacons & The Anointed" from Delphine
I'm not too good at writing reviews, but I noticed that you weren't recieving a lot of them so I thought I'd at least tell you how much I like this story. I find the thought of the Predacons having to protect Xander to be amusing. So in essence, I'm just trying to say, good work and please keep going.
Comments from author:
Thank you very much for the review, I was starting to wonder if I'd need to write more BtVS Character scenes before anyone would review again. LOL

I hope you'll like what I do with this story/series, though I'm not sure yet if it will be a series or one UBER long fic.

I'm going to try and get started on Chapter Three soon, can't wait for Waspinator/Wanda to meet Cordelia Chase. Ooooo so much brutality for the poor Predacon, clothes shopping anyone? Insert Evil Laughter here.

I'd say more, but I'm off to do some after Christmas gift card shopping, so once again thanks a lot. Sometimes I can be a little obsessive and refuse to work on a story when I don't get any reviews, now, Chapter Three can begin! YEEHAW Here comes poison, as Quickstrike would say.

Review of chapter "Chapter One Meet the Predacons" from drmikevash
Awesome! Few people do Transformers fics, let alone Beast Wars. I can easily imagine the Preds trying to subtly influence Xander into becoming a benevolent dictator ("He shall protect mankind by conquering it, as any true Predacon should").
So poor, poor Waspinator/Wanda is like a naive, less confident version of Anyaka facing ridicule from Cordelia and possible "Crying Game" thoughts about Xander.
Since their organic pretender shells are part human in nature, does than mean one or two of them might have MAGICAL potential like Giles, Willow, or Amy?
The old CDR factory would be a good place to have a secondary base if their house gets compromised or in case they want to build weapons and/or transport vehicles without neighbors noticing. If they manage to combine magic and technology, they might be able to create SPARKS and protoforms to increase their ranks and better battle the minions of Unicron.
Comments from author:
To be 100% honest I have no idea where I'll be going with this in the long haul as it were. It was just some idea I had that started to build and build until it hit crescendo levels. Aside from that I couldn't for the life of me settle on a Crossover idea for the story I started with Tony and Jessica Harris as the main protagonists.

All I do know is this is going to take us through Season two and beyond, the Halloween episode might or might not be altered accordingly due to the presence of the Pretenders and I'm already thinking of toying with the idea that Pretenders won't be affected by the voice loss of the Gentlemen from Season four.

Potential for magic is unknown presently, considering they already have access to optic blasts, flame throwers, missile launchers, cyber venom and cyber bees considering Scorponok will be present. I'm glad you've liked what I got so far, next chapter may see some Predacon interaction with BtVS characters.

As far as relationships go, I hardly think Waspinator/Wanda will be complicating matters of that nature after all he's still a guy the Pretender shells don't affect them hormonally or physically speaking, or at least I haven't decided if that's the case yet... If anything Waspinator might wind up trying to stay out of relationships, but then again considering the Predacons taste in clothes color wise they might wind up standing out like sore thumbs. Especially Terrorsaur once he gets to school, I open to any suggestion you might have on what subject he should teach, anything from Mathematics to Biology 101. I can just imagine him starting to go off on a tangent with equations that any basic Cybertronian would know, but Humans would be like... Wha?

Wow, long winded much... Transformers, gotta love'em and I hope I'll be able to keep the readers interest considering it has been a while since I've seen Season two and I'm not sure if I'll be able to portray the characters right. On the Buffy front that is.
