Story Notes:
Well, folks, it seems I was visiting the TF Bunny Farm on LJ earlier this week, and one caught my eye. The idea was intriguing to me, so I decided to try it. The bunny was posted by Balrog Roike and is as follows: "G1: Desperate times call for desperate measures. And so, lacking necessary troops at the beginning of the war, the remaining senate forces Optimus Prime to recruit some of his soldiers out of the ranks of criminals imprisoned in the high security ward of the local prison. Most of these criminals don't survive their first fight, too weak, insane or tired of life to survive. Just one mech is tenacious enough to pull through and to survive every battle until the Autobots finally reach Earth: Starscream, imprisoned for the murder of his colleague, mentor and best friend. He deals with the hostility of his "comrades", the snears of his frame-kind and fellow military models on Decepticon side, and is just happy to have a full tank and at least a little bit of freedom again.
Then Skyfire is freed the murderer suddenly becomes the victim. "

The idea of this AU was intriguing to me, so I have decided to explore it while I deal with my dreaded case of writer's block for IdF: Kaleidoscope. I will be posting for that one as soon as I work through a gnarly patch with how best to present that next chapter. In the meantime, please do enjoy this little offering. This one will not be abandoned any more than IdF:K will, but will be slow in posting due to real life issues preventing me from writing as much as I'd like.

Balrog Roike credits the author of Hear My Scream, FreakazoidChimpanzee, for inspiring her with part of the idea for the bunny. I, too, would like to credit the author of that story as well for assisting in the inspiration. However, as suggested in the bunny, my story will be going in a different direction.

That said, I now finally present chapter one of Pariah.
