The Allspark’s September Fic of the Month

{mosimage}Sure, it's been a bit since Cannonball's release, but pirates never go out of style!  The high-seas imagery flows freely in the Allspark Fic of the Month for September: The Universe Before Me, A Thousand Stars Behind.  Master Fwiffo spins an entertaining yarn starring, as he puts it, a ragtag group of scoundrels that make up his own Cybertronian pirate crew.  It's a well-timed story, too… September 19th is Talk Like A Pirate Day, after all.  Arrr!
