Title: “A song of fire and iron” by Gabriella5Greene551
Logline: Per reader Anya Glass, who sent in the tip, “You must read A song of fire and iron. It’s a transformers fanfic with singing, zombies, xenomorphs, and a terrible Mary Sue named Giselle Yvonne delacriox.”
Acts Involved: Skull splitting, zombie biting, interspecies romance, and Optimus Prime considering sex with an underage human, which is to say statutory rape. Guess he didn’t get the memo from Michael Bay about carrying a copy of the law around in his wallet.
Participants: Giselle Yvonne Delacroix, Optimus Prime, Aliens, The Walking Dead.

Thompson has been writing professionally about movies and pop-culture since 1999, and has also been an actor in some extremely cheap culty and horror movies you will probably never hear much about (he is nonetheless mostly proud of them, as he met his wife on one). As editor of The Robot's Voice since 2012, he can take the blame for the majority of the site's content, all of which he creates because he loves you very, very much. (Although he loves nachos more. Sorry.)
