Title: Mercenary Medicine
Fandom: Transformers: Prime
Rating: PG-13
Summary: Knock Out is a freelance medic-- he works alone and he likes it that way. But when he finds a corpse that isn't as dead as it ought to be at the bottom of a pile of bodies, it puts his entire careful operation at risk.
Chapter: 01 || 02 || 03 || 04 || 05 || 06 || 07 || 08 || 09 || 10 || 11 || 12 || 13 || 14 || 15
Notes: Set way before what we see in the show and nowhere near Earth. Contains copious amounts of worldbuilding and headcanon. Thank you to Dirge for letting me bounce ideas off her and helping keep my Breakdown in line, and to Theo for making me really think about what it was I was writing. Mercenary Medicine wouldn’t be the story it is today without either of you.



Minor content warning this chapter for mentions of suicide, physical harm, and dismemberment.



Knock Out had been sequestered in the maintenance bay for only a cycle before he heard the doorpad chime. )

The difference that even a few days’ worth of work had made in the state of the cargo bay was astonishing... )

Sorry for the long, long hiatus on this fic, folks. Real life got very much in my way, I'm afraid, but I never intended to give up on MM for good. There may be further delays in getting the rest of the chapters out, but I know what the endgame on this fic is going to be and I fully intend to deliver it to you. Thanks for your patience and for sticking with me for so long!

Title: Stay Down
Fandom: Transformers Prime
Rating: PG-13 for robot fighting and discussion of the atrocities of a brutal war
Summary: Breakdown gets creative when it comes to teaching troopers how to fight.
Notes: Set during season one, somewhere between "Out of his Head" and "Operation: Breakdown". Inspired by this post on Tumblr, which was itself inspired by a conversation I had with Dirgles while watching "Plus One".

Knock Out was elbow deep in a disorganized container of weapons when Vitalis warned him that Blackout was coming back online. )

I'm sorry for the delay between the last chapter and this one, and the delay to come between this and the next. I've been quite busy recently preparing convention stock, which eats severely into my writing time. Hopefully after Botcon I'll be able to make time again in my days for writing.

Speaking of, I'M GOING TO BOTCON! And if you're there too, feel free to look for me in the Dealer's Room-- I'll be behind the booth with the costume wings and the jewelry and the pillows and the Seeker t-shirts and other awesome handmade TF things.

Summary: What happens in the medbay after the events of S2E7, "Crossfire".
Chapter: One-shot.
Notes: Written in a three-hour paroxysm of grief and insomnia, mostly in an attempt to deal with the incredible feels that I couldn't handle last night.

I'm not sure how much it helped, frankly.
