Hi there! I'm Jo, also known as PuraJo (on LJ) or PuraJazzBot (on FFnet). I've been writing TF Fanfic since 2003 and just rediscovered Lexicon again.

I intend to bring all my newer stuff back here again since this was where I got my start.

Wow! Good Story, especially for someone who's first language isnt English this was very good indeed! I personally liked being able to see things from Primus' point of view. The ending moments were beautiful, very touching, especially Optimus and the others encouraging Hot Rod from within the Matrix. Well done!

On a short visit back to Cybertron, Jazz finds an intruder in his old home - an intruder who gives him more trouble than he ever imagined!

Jazzy! Ah you know how much I love this story. This was one of the first TF fics that I read on Lexicon and it got me hooked! I can also safely say that this is my fave fic ever =). I really love it and I love your writing style. Yes I know I am gushing, but this is just THAT good! =)

Life in the big city...told from the perspective of the big city.

Lovely little POV story, would have never thought it was how Metroplex feels most of the time so thank you for the enlightenment =).. Also very sweet how he notices the little things about the other Autobots. The Sunstreaker one personally touched me. Great story!

Defensor's my favorite gestalt so twas nice to see him sort of win the whole battle royal. Nice dialogue from the Protectobots, especially the one about Blades and Hot Spot wanting to beat up on anything that was Motormaster =).. I like the one-liner from Sideswipe to Galvatron too. Good job!

featured story Bluestreak witnesses something that bothers him enough to keep his own nightmares at bay.

Starhorse I love ALL your fanfic! You write so well I am envious of your talent! Share? Lol! Anyways, this one is just so very good. I get to understand three characters at once: Blue, Sides and Sunny. I like emotional stories as I've said before and this is one of the best I've read! Good job!

Sunstreaker's violent nature finally earns him a court martial, and what he finds at his trial leaves him a bit shaken. Features Jazz and Sunstreaker.

What's not to love in this fic? its got humor, drama, angst, the works.. and anyone who can work all of that into a fic in such a brilliant way is a genius! I adored Ratchet in this one. And I'm glad I got the chance to understand the twins better than what the cartoon made them out to be. Prowl was awesome! You have got to put up the rest of "The Lost" series here. Again, brilliant job on the story =)

A premonition prompts Wheeljack to propose an extreme pre-emptive solution to Ratchet and Perceptor...and he was right.

I love this fic. I love it to death. Everytime I read it I end up in tears. That's how good it is. Dang! I want your talent! =)... this is so very very good! You make me realize just how much I like Ratchet, Wheeljack and Perceptor; and just how valuable the three of them are to the 'Bots. You must write more TF fic!

Just so you know, Sunstreaker's car mode is a Lamborghini Countach not a Ferrari.

See Jazz bored. See Jazz so bored he dragged Perceptor to a nightclub. See Jazz *really* wish he hadn't done that. Intentional Mary Sue! You have been warned!

Everytime I read this it always leaves me in fits of laughter. It is so well written. Lovely perspective of Jazz and Perceptor seeing life from a human point of view too. And its so darn funny overall, even my non-TF friends have been reduced to helpless giggles. You write Brilliantly well, must do more! =)

I know alot of the other reviews said that this fic seemed a bit rushed, and while I tend to think so too, I also say that it is brilliantly done! I was in tears at the end of it! If you have any plans to re-write this, might I suggest that it be a tad longer, and a little more character developement for each TF featured. Its such a great story, its a pity it ends so soon. But great job all the same!

featured story Thundercracker tries to save face and stave off a nervous breakdown when Starscream decides to take the day off, with some non-help courtesy of Skywarp.

I'm not much of a 'Con fan but I do like the three original Seekers and I do love this fic! Its very very good and extremely funny. You've got their personalities done very nicely. And the "What do you do with a cratered Seeker" song had me in stitches! brilliantly done!

Happens 20 years after "I Know Now Why You Cry."

Echo ponders life, theology, and his ties to Thundercracker after his defection to the Autobots. Takes place right after "From Crying to Hope."

Man, you really capture character emotions well, and I like that in a fic. I like fics that can stir up a hornets nest of emotions in a reader and your fic tends to do that. Very well written, and there's just something very sweet about the 'Bots falling asleep one by one under holographic trees.

An introspective centering on Ironhide, Chromia, Christmas, others.

Set after the Movie. Jazz reflects on his life, the death of his friends, and Rodimus Prime's ascension to power. An explanation as to why Jazz survived the movie, but was rarely seen afterwards.

I like that you've featured Jazz and its quite an intriguing storyline, in fact I hope you've got a sequel in the works. However, one thing that kinda bothers me is Jazz's attitude. I seriously dont think he's the kinda guy who'll hate and hold a grudge against a fellow Autobot... He may be a bit angry at first but sooner rather than later he'd understand.

Dude, if I could give this an 11, I would. Very well done! You've got Jazz and Omega down perfect. And I love the lines you gave to Jazz.. somehow they just sound so right, they sound just like Jazz would say them. Very moving words they are too. Good job! We need more stories like this!

Just one question though, where are Jazz and Ironhide? With Prime being charged with treason I cant imagine Ironhide not being there yelling in protest. What about Ratchet too?.. But nonetheless, nice job, cant wait to read more

wow ok, that was looooong! Its a very good story dont get me wrong, I enjoyed most of it but I have a few bones to pick with it here and there... the main one being the length of it. a tad bit too long for my liking.. it would have been better if you could have split this one up into maybe two or three parts. secondly.. I dont agree with some of the personalities. Prowl's in particular.. I dont think he would say some of the things in the way that he said it, if ya get my meaning.. other than those two though.. good story!

Blaster and Moonracer begin their investigation into the traitorous actions of Optimus Prime.

Yay! Cute little story. A nice reverse on the "Traitor" episode that had Mirage in CJ's position. But uh.. your sentence structure... a bit too many short sentences which kinda stops the whole flow of the story. So just to help you out there: try mixing long sentences with short ones in an equal amount. that makes it flow just nicely... other than that, the characters were ok - nice work on Shrapnel... the story was just fine! =)

Two worlds, separated by race, culture, and technology, meet and change both in a very personal way.
