Heartwarming moments scattered throughout the series:
In general, expect Ironhide and Annabelle's interactions to be this.
Annabelle considering Ironhide to be one of her best friends.
Annabelle making sure to include Ironhide's cannons in all of her drawings of him in robot form is quite the 'aww' inducing moment.
Babysitter's NightmareNight SkyBullyParent-Teacher ConferenceEverybody Needs a BirthdayBabysitting, Take TwoWhen I Grow Up
Annabelle's class is being asked what they want to be when they grow up and Annabelle musing about her father and Ironhide's work. When it came for her turn, she told her teacher that she wanted to be a hero. Just like her father and Ironhide.

In Chapter 11, while it is a Tear Jerker that Annabelle is reduced to tears when the Autobots are seemingly killed in the Xanthium explosion, it is still touching for Simmons to comfort her especially given how the two first reacted to each other in Summer Vacation.
Not to mention Dutch scolding everyone else for not even trying to comfort Annabelle when she is crying.
In Chapter 21, Sam's proposal to Mikaela and the Autobots are there to witness it.
The final scene of the story is Annabelle reuniting with Ironhide.
