Clipped Chapter 5The tip of his finger disintegrated as it came in contact with the computer terminal, rust having spread across his arms and servos in the final stages of the cybonic plague. He'd seen this happen to all of his colleagues, only one other survived. What monstrosity had he lead their team into making?
"Fallsteak," He coughed," I don't believe we shall make it through." He weakly turned his head, feeling the mechanics of his neck crumble as he did so. Starscream saw his companion gazing back with almost pink eyes, they were so dim. "I'm sorry," He apologized meekly. It had been on his suggestion that Megatron ordered the the biological weapon manufactured, and all for gaining esteem and power.
Rust rash covered the entirety of Fallstreak's face, and flaked off as he opened his mouth and said," Starscream, it's too late for apologies."
Pain constricted Starscream's spark and he had to look away from his suffering friend. Fallstreak was probably the closest friend Starscream had made sin
Clipped Chapter 4"Starscream?" Arcee asked as she entered the main control room, seeing said mech sitting on the ground and holding holding his head in his servos. It was very late at night, so why was he up, much less in the control room?
"Oh, Arcee, forgive me," he pleaded in the tone of voice he reserved for when he was being most pathetic.
"Oh, Primus, what did you do?"
"I- I almost contacted Nemesis to give them coordinates!" He said, looking to her and getting to his knees, imploring her to forgive him more. "It was a moment of weakness, but I swear, I'll never be swayed, ever!"
Walking up to him, she glared down at him and placed her servos on her hips. "You said almost, right? Then I guess we can forgive you." She didn't really see the point of him owning up to it if he didn't actually go through with it.
"I had been thinking to appease Megatron, I don't what came over me!"
She scoffed at this. He had chronic backstabbing disorder, that's what. She glanced curiously as he continued his pleading
Clipped Chapter 3"Prime?!" Fowler's voice came through the console.
"What is it Agent Fowler?" Ratchet asked, Optimus Prime being gone with Bumblebee in South Africa and obviously unavailable at head quarters.
"Decepticons must have attacked one of my men's bases, it has a small energon pool in it! I want to know why you guys don't seem to even give it mind."
"Woah, there, calm down. We didn't know," Arcee retorted, walking up behind Ratchet. "Is there anything you can discern as being their cause for attacking?"
"Well, here's the strange thing. None of my men saw or heard anything, when presumably a twenty foot robot paraded through the base while injured. And, the intruder only took two missiles."
"Only two? What kind?" Ratchet asked.
"A set of AIM-9L Sidewinders," The other responded.
Arcee and Ratchet exchanging glances, they simultaneously voiced together," Starscream."
"Starscream?" The agent echoed.
Typing the coordinates that were presented as the assaulted base, Ratchet confirmed," The
Clipped Chapter 2Arcee sat in front of the school, waiting for Jack to finish. Relief surged through the bot as the final bell rang and she was assured a small wait for her human charge. When he finally arrived and mounted the seat, she was ready to take off and did, well over the 15 mph limit for the school zone.
"Woah, Arcee, you okay?" He asked, still shoving his helmet on while trying to appear as if he was driving.
Curtly, she replied," Fine."
"Yeah, try telling me that while you're not trying to run a red light."
She must have just realized the traffic lights were yellow and screeched to a halt, her treads feeling the burn. "I could have made it easily."
"What's that you're always telling me about the whole-"
"Jack, I'm not really in the mood for a lesson right now," She interrupted. It had been only three days since being trapped in that cave and treating the decepticon ended up being more than Ratchet had anticipated and took a full day. Seeing the other completely helpless and having to hear a
Clipped Chapter 1"Oh scrap," Starscream cried out as he saw the motorcycle autobot enter the small enclosure he'd found in the cave. He had one hand on a minuscule deposit of energon, and was otherwise preoccupied with keeping himself clinging to the rock face a good twenty feet off the ground.
"Starscream, I had a feeling I'd find you here," Arcee said with a cold stare, raising two guns and preparing to shoot. "This is for Cliff-"
"Wait! WAIT! This cavern is unstable from over mining-!" He curled up and covered his head with his arms as two blaster shots came his way, descending to the ground at an alarming rate. The relatively short tumble was not nearly as concerning as the small rocks that hit him while he lie on the ground; only a warning of the much more substantial boulders that hurriedly followed.
Starscream moaned in discomfort as he came to, a sharp pain twinging right broad wing. Without thinking much of the situation he was in, he jerked left as he sat up. A sharp metallic sound echo
