Review:
I've never watched Transformers Prime, so I had to look some stuff up, but this is certainly an intriguing idea! If you should choose to write more I'd read it.

Review of chapter "Birthing Pangs" from banditdoz
Review:
I hope your going to explain how unicron was defeated because I´m a little lost. I like the beginning of the story though but I just feel like I missed an important part.

Edit Ok thanks ;D
Comments from author:
I did explain what happened, a little bit, might go into detail later on, not sure. Point is, since it happened without the Scoobies being involved at all I wasn't really planning on rehashing points from the actual episodes just yet.

Review of chapter "Birthing Pangs" from clei
Review:
“My friends will grieve for me, Xander! Oh Xander’s going to be so devastated, isn’t there anyway I can still communicate with them? I mean I don’t have to sleep forever like Unicron did do I? Ewwww, icky Dark Energon stuff is still all over the place, it’ll take a long time to get rid of it. I guess this means I can never see Tara again now, oh wait I could just visit her, maybe… I don’t know much about how this all works, and who am I talking to anyway?”

The voice of her questioner chuckled all around her still sounding very faint and very weak. “Young beings certainly are talkative.”

“Oh, um… Sorry.” Willow would have blushed if it were possible

So. If I'm understanding this not only Willow has become Gaia, but the Godesss of Babble also?

Does this mean that Willow will be regaining her human form back, and how will the Pricks That Be and Illyria in fact react to all this?

Does this mean also that the Scoobies and to a degree the slayers themselves are now linked to Willow with her being Gaia herself, and all that implies?

Will a certain slayer literally be boning a Goddess now with all that implies...

Review of chapter "Birthing Pangs" from Cdog
Review:
I'll admit that I'm a little confused now.

I understand that Willow's magic was powered by calling to Gaia. I understand that Unicron is the Earth.

What's got me puzzled is why Unicron wasn't an evil dick while he was Gaia? If he's not the Gaia that Willow called to then where did she go?

This story is interesting and I really like how you've combined the two worlds. Now that Primus has shown up I'm starting to get curious as to whether or not you'll bring The Fallen and the other Primes into this.

... Or are they all dead like on TF:P
Comments from author:
I'm not sure how Transformers Prime is handling them to be honest, the Forge of Solus Prime was introduced and it's heavily implied that the first thirteen are all gone. That being said, if the storyline decides to go into that direction we may just see it.

As for what Willow did to draw upon Gaia, it might not be clear here, but Unicron has been dormant on Earth for eons. Magic users draw upon his power, since he is a mystical being, hence how magic can be so corruptive in the Buffyverse, since it's source is directly coming from a Dark God. Willow was drawing on Unicron's power all this time, other-dimensional entities may have stepped in to pretend they were actually giving her the power (such as that spirit thing she demanded bring Tara back to life for her), but really she's been absorbing Unicron's power all this time. So 'Gaia' didn't go anywhere.

Look up Gaia Unicron, yep there's even a toy named that, I was kind of playing some cheeky fanservice for fans of the toys and stuff by finding a way to get that name into the story at some point.

Er, so basically, Unicron wasn't an evil dick while he was Gaia because he was dormant, not even aware of the 'infestation' crawling and spawning all over his body. Other-dimensional beings were jerking around with the magic users to absorb some of their power from faith in return, you know how it is, everybody's out to get something for themselves and all that. Just probably not going to explain this angle in the story proper since it's all just short vignettes at the moment in how the Scoobies and that react to The capital T Apocalypse capital A.

Review of chapter "Birthing Pangs" from missinglink
Review:
Interesting story so far. Am wondering about the arcs you are trying to lay out. The reason for others not reviewing in quantity yet is due to still being in the wait an see mood. Really wasn't rushing to review as not much has happened yet. You are still setting up the board to play the game. Until the whole picture is there and the game can begin, you should expect less response.

Am curious as to how you are planning to set up a fight with Unicron with him being the earth and also not. Having not watched Transformers series since the 80's, only remember him from the movie and that is not how he is represented here so that is taking a bit of story to see how you are using him. Maybe the same for others.

Hope for more so I can better get a feel for the direction of the story. Good luck!

Review of chapter "Birthing Pangs" from Eureka
Review:
May be pretty good. Kinda not liking wills being the new core, but is workable since she can learn to have form again.
Comments from author:
Well I kind of figured this was the natural step forwards for the character, I mean Willow in cannon is portrayed as extremely powerful for a magic user, so why not take that the next logical step up by turning her into the source of all mystical abilities on Earth. At least it's better than Joss's recent Magical Seed stuff from the comics and all that. (Which I myself am only vaguely aware of)

Review of chapter "Darkest Hour" from DarthTenebrus
Review:
Uh-uh, no way can Earth be UNICRON. Perhaps Primus, but no, that's Cybertron. It would seem we have a new player in the game....
