Once I Called You Brother by TenorSaxLolita Once I Called You Brother by TenorSaxLolita
Once I called you brother
Once I thought the chance to make you laugh
Was all I ever wanted
And even now, I wish that God had chose another
Serving as your foe on his behalf
Is the last thing that I wanted
...
You who I called brother
How could you have come to hate me so?
Is this what you wanted?
Then let my heart be hardened,
And never mind how high the cost may grow!


Skyfire is too often overlooked. He is the only one to (canonly) have been in both factions, not counting double agents. And his tragic friendship with Starscream just fascinates me to no end. It's sad that neither got the happy ending they deserved.

However you see these two, as friends, or brother-figures, or lovers, or a teacher and student, you must agree their story was tragic. And even more so since it never got the proper attention. It could have made for some great episodes.

Starscream and Skyfire (c) HasTak
Lyrics (c) Stephen Schwartz, Hans Zimmer, and whoever else wrote for "Prince of Egypt". (Another tragic story. Everytime I watch it I feel so sad for Rameses.)
Okay. I swear I'll start working on my requests this weekend.

Wow... beyond cool. And Prince of Egypt rocks, by the way. They can make some really cool bible movies when they want to.

Aw, thanks. I like the concept better than the actual execution, but overall I'm pleased.
And. I. LOVE. "Prince of Egypt"!
I'm not even really THAT religious, but, oh, it's such a great movie!

And the music was awesome, too. Hans Zimmer writes some of the best, like in Spirit.

I haven't seen Spirit, but I do like his other works very much. Especially Lion King and Road to El Dorado (with Elton John as well...) and The Dark Knight.

I didn't know he did Lion King! That's my absolute favorite Disney movie of all time!

Yes, the music for both TLK and Road to El Dorado was done by the team of Hans Zimmer, Tim Rice, and Elton John. Thus why both movies have such amazing tunes! *is a total music nerd*

The art is great :salute:; the premise is sad :sniff:.

For great non-sticky? fiction involving these two and the bond therein, have you looked at Redemption over on FF.net?

Also try My Madness, My Saving Sanity for a bit of interaction near the last chapters. I'm sure there are more but my brain has gone caput. :faint:

Aw, thank you. Yes, their story is tragic, but at least it makes for good story. Or it would if they had done anything with it.

Yay! Fic recs! :hug: I will be sure to check them out as soon as I am home. So far the only fics I find of them are fluff or smut or extreme emo rant.

:bow: Welcome.

Yesh, all the angst does make for good stories for at least the few talented authors/ess out there who care to take a stab at it.

I sympathise with not finding much good fic with these two. I only found what I referred you onto after much digging.

Beware though, that although they are great stories and have many great moments and little jems, they are loooong. :faint:

I confess that my decision to colour Sky's brighter optic red stemmed from reading a fic, though this picture is by far not an illustration of the fic. The symbolism of the mismatched eyes to represent his inner turmoil was just something that stuck with me. I believe the fic was called... uh... *digs through ff.net* FOUND IT: [link]

It's long for a one-shot, and a refreshingly unique take on a plot that at first seems (deceptively) cliche.

And, oh boy, long!fics! I'll have to find time to read them, perhaps next weekend if I can set aside all the stuff I'm supposed to be doing and if I don't have a lot of HW...

:omg: :excited: I :love: that fic! And I know that author kinda! That is so freaky! :lol: I do know that eventually the author/ess is planning to write a follow-up to that one-shot.

Lol, yesh, they are long! Hope you enjoy :D

It sure pleased me greatly too when she told me.:boogie: But it'll probably be awhile yet, she's really busy and she wants to finish her 28 Starscream's meme first :( which is in it's own right great so I'm not too unhappy... :D

Well, good luch with them! :salute:

Yes, I agree completely. Tragic tales have the unfortunate ability to drag me in and leave me bawling for the sake of the poor characters.

Yes. WINGS. Three kinds too! A bird wing, a tattered demonic wing, and even a peek at Screamer's jet wing! It's like a wing orgy!
As well as a pose blatantly inspired by PotO. And two of your favourite TFs. Of course you were gonna like it. :bow:
Thank you very much. I am happy you like it. Skyfire is a total betch to draw.

Yes. I can't imagine how Starscream must have felt when he lost Skyfire. Both times.
And then how Skyfire must feel to have woken up only to find everything he knew to be long gone.
:tears: Their story makes me want to cry... I'm such a sap...

Starscream was betrayed that's for sure...but the friend that Skyfire knew was gone too, changed into a bitter Decepticons...I wish there was more information on them and what kind of friendship they had...and I'm a sap too :cries:

I wish that the original series had spent more time on such. I suppose there is fanfiction for that, but I haven't seen many for these two that are that good. (Though I seem to remember one in particular that had the detail of Starscream being blamed for Skyfire's murder, and thus expelled from the Science Academy.)

no tissues needed ^^
Yeah, it would have been nice to see just how deep their friendship had run...and I will admit that I haven't read that manner fictions on their relationship...other than interfacing stuff :dead: it's all they right about for those two
Reply
:icontenorsaxlolita:
TenorSaxLolita Featured By Owner Jan 2, 2009  Hobbyist General Artist
Yeah, that is mostly what I see too.
Though I confess that I don't entirely mind.
It'd be nice to see a fic focused on the "friendship" aspect though. Even the one I mentioned was a slash fic. A very well-written one, mind you, but slashy all the same.

lol I might bring that friendship into one of my stories, maybe just touch on it...mostly going to be Starscream possessive over my OC (toy! OMG I'm evil to my girl XD) and doesn't like anyone touching her XD I have twisted plots XD

I've mentioned it but never played with it as much as it deserves. I keep meaning to but have so many other fics to work on, as well as artworks, so sadly this is probably as much as I can do for them thus far.
Ooh! Drama! :3

You're welcome.
Sorry, I don't follow Transformers much nowadays, but your idea was pretty cool, especially when compared with the brotherly relationship between Moses and the Pharoh from "Prince of Egypt." That was a nice touch.
^^
