So thanks for tuning everyone~
To make this easier on everyone, and since I have no idea how long this is going to end up being, I just decided I was going to organize the chapters of this fanfic into a journal entry. I'll link this journal at the bottom of the deviations for my ease and yours, so you can come here and find previous chapters. I will update this journal as I write.
For some background information on this fanfic, it's a slash fiction (so you've been warned if that's not your thing) between Soundwave and Dreadwing. It takes place after Triangulation and Triage. After that, it branches off into it's own storyline apart from the TV series. Most of it will be from Dreadwing's POV, but I will intersperse it with occasional Soundwave chapters. Consider this paying homage to THE mysterious mech. I feel I should respect that part of his personality. Early warning, I am writing ROMANCE, not smut, so don't come in expecting to read that.
Also, random note, I know having to fav every single part of the fanfiction probably gets tiring if you do like it, so I just consider a fav to this journal a fav to the entire story. So, if you want to save yourself the trouble, feel free to just fav this journal instead. If you have any comments about the story as a whole instead of a particular chapter, feel free to post them here instead too. I do allow critiques of my work, so feel free to leave positive or negative comments. However, if it's just a plain insult, don't say it at all or take it to me in note.

Special thanks to for convincing me to keep up the fanfic after the first chapter and being a regular reader and commentor. After all, writing is nothing if no one reads it.
Special thanks to for putting up with all my recent nattering about it. She helps me proofread it also, so huge thanks for that bestie. As a side note, part of the inspiration for Sight by Proxy came from one of her characters Echo (with permission mind you), so also huge thanks for that.
Special thanks to for making the group which inspired me to try this pairing in the first place.
Thanks to any readers too! You guys are what makes the thing tick in the first place.
Hasbro owns Soundwave and Dreadwing. I claim no ownership whatsoever. They also own Transformers and many of the other characters I'll briefly bring into the fanfic.
Derivative artwork, go for it. You don't need to ask my permission. I would appreciate if you showed me of course, but part of the reason I started the whole thing was to hopefully inspire others, so take it and run. I also don't own the characters myself, so it would be kind of ridiculous to act like I do. The only exception to the rule is some of the details in Sight by Proxy. Since helped birth much of that inspiration, please PLEASE notify if you do use that particular take on Soundwave in one of your pieces so that I can show her. She does give permission for people to use it without having to ask first though.
I've had a lot of fun with this! Another huge thanks to those who convinced me to keep going~
