This is a wonderful example of the influence a good and caring friend can have. The Tracks/Raoul friendship has so much story potential and I'm glad to see you explored it here. I think my favorite part is the snapshots showing Track's continued presence over the years. Lovely job!

Seconding what ~pietrestan said, thank you for the comments, everyone! It's great to see this piece make it in -- it's been four years in the making. :giggle: Worth the wait, judging by the kind comments. :) Much thanks to Pietre for all the Easter Eggs and the dynamic art, and of course for his wonderful interpretation of my script. It has been a pleasure to work with him over the years on our various pieces and I thank TF:M for bringing us together on these projects. :w00t:

This piece is also special to me because it's based on a short story that I haven't been able to finish writing (also in limbo for several years). I'm grateful that Pietre could give voice to a story that's close to my heart. :)

Meaningful story, and nice easter eggs. 11/13/1985 was the date that the Auto-bot aired, BTW.

Thank you for the positive reviews and kind comments, everyone! It was a lot of fun to draw.

It's fitting: the last Mosaic of mine that gets released has re-teamed me with ~shiribot -- the writer of the very first one I did the artwork for, *way* back in TF:M Year-1!

I always enjoyed collaborating with her and she has definitely written quite the sweet one here :) !

Thanks again for everything, guys!

I love how Tracks is all "Oh no you di'in't, girlfriend!" with Raoul skipping school.

Thanks, JZB!

Definitely tried to play up that... aspect of Tracks' personality, by having him semi-daintily delivering Raoul to school and having him transform with a pinky extended.

The art totally makes a cool story even better! And did Raoul hook up with Verity from IDW?

So obviously, fantastic work :).

Oh man, now I wish I *had* intentionally cast/drawn Verity as his wife! Consider it retconned!

And thanks for the kind words, Duke!

Thank you, kindly Jedi!

(I've been trying to get the inks in on "Powerdasher" whenever I can. Again, hopefully, it'll see daylight as an episode of "The Lost Seasons.")

Whenever you want Pietre, actually I'd love to feature this very story in our gallery too, it's exactly the kind of stuff we like to do in our project, and I see you mentioned something of a "Powerdasher" story too? Just note me and we can talk details ;)
