I watched in disbelief as I saw my once proud leader plummet to the ground below. He landed with a sickening thud that was almost enough to make me believe he went offline for good. Myself, a Constructicon, and the ever irritating Starscream surrounded him to check if he still functioned.
"How do you feel mighty Megatron?!" Starscream said with heavy sarcasm before giving Megatron a swift kick to the torso. The action was almost enough to make me rip his chassis from his body and beat him into scrap metal.
"Astrotrain, transform and get us out of here!"
Despite my hate for the ever cowardly bot, I knew that our assault on Autobot city was falling apart thanks to their wretched leader Optimus prime. In a matter of nanoscyles he stormed the city, wiped out half our strike force, and defeated Megatron in one on one combat.
"Don't leave me Soundwave!" Megatron said weakly. My spark faltered at seeing my once glorious leader in such a pitiful state.
"As you command lord Megatron" I picked up my leader and began racing towards our EVAC point, all the while avoiding the ongoing retaliation of the Autobots. As I rushed inside the cargo bay of our comrade Astrotrain, a bot who had two vehicle modes, a train and space shuttle, Starscream and my other comrades followed in, some carrying the injured along with them.
"Astrotrain! Take off!" Starscream ordered, his shrill voice made even more annoying by the confines of the cargo bay
Astrotrain began his escape, turning into his shuttle form, and taking us away from the human planet Earth. As we traveled I tried my best to hide Megatron's condition, but I knew the ever ambitious Starcream would never pass a moment to usurp him. The bot had even tried to claim leadership of the Decepticons only because Megatron had 'sore throat' as the humans refer to it. I hated everything about the humans, but sometimes they had a way of explaining things that was easier than our own.
As we traveled through the depths of space, Astrotrain was moving slower than usual and I feared what was about to be said. "Jettison some weight. or I'll never make it to Cybertron!" I knew that's when Starscream would make his move
"Fellow Decepticons Astrotrain has requested we lighten our burden" Starscream said
"In that case I say it's survival of the fittest" One of the Constructicons said, Scrapper I believe his name was. I never bothered to store their names in my memory units only the name of our strongest weapon, Devastator
"Do I hear a second on that?" Starscream said as if he knew who was going to respond
"AYE!" Only the bots who didn't suffer damage said.
"And against?" Starscream said
"Nay" the injured part of our forces said weakly. I cared not for them, weakness is to be punished among the Decepticons, and Megatron would bring down that punishment, if it wasn't for the fact he was among them.
"The 'ayes' have it!" Starscream said enthusiastically
We forced all of the injured bots to the airlock, opened it, and jettisoned them into space. Their weakness would only slow our future attempts to defeat the Autobots. Then Starscream approached the open door, with Megatron in his hands. Despite his state I would always stay loyal to our leader, although if I tried to do anything I knew I'd be joining him shortly.
"Aww, How it pains me to do this." Starscream said with heavy sarcasm and a smirk
"Wait, I still function!" Megatron said weakly
"Wanna bet?" Starscream said before tossing him into space. I went to reach out and save him, but he was already gone and the door was shut. Thankfully nobody saw me otherwise I wouldn't function as I do now.
"STAAAARSCREEEEAAAAAMMMM!" Megatron wailed before leaving view
Starscream rubbed his hands together as if he was getting rid of filth from them and said "Well as Megatron has, how shall we say, departed, I nominate myself as new leader!" I wanted to rip his jaw off and smash his face plate with it, but I processed the situation for a moment. If I became leader then I could order the remaining Decepticons to turn around and save Megatron.
"The Constructicons form Devastator! The most powerful robot! We should be leader!"
"Soundwave superior, Constructicons Inferior" I said attempting to place myself above them, however my vocal impairment makes it difficult for me to sound authoritative.
"Who are you calling Inferior!" one replied "No one would fallow an uncharismatic bore like you!"
I deployed my minicons to intimidate them, despite their small statures they can take out a bot twice their size
"No body calls Soundwave 'uncrhasamatic'!" Frenzy shouted, I hated his lack of intelligence sometimes.
"Yeah let's kick tailgate!" Rumble said eager for a fight
"CONSTRUCTICONS UNITE!" One of them shouted as they began to form Devastator. This would have ended badly for all of us if my Minicons hadn't intervened "No way!" they shouted as they transformed their hands into their pile drivers and began to vibrate all of Astrotrain, causing the Constructicons to lose their balance and topple over, separating them from their Devestator form.
After that an all out brawl broke out, and I gave a piece of my processor to one of those annoying Constucticons
After a few cycles I recovered from the fight on the ship and made my way back to HQ. I was horrified to see that Starscream had made tremendous progress in his campaign to become leader. Banners and holograms of him giving speeches of a 'stronger Decepticon army' were everywhere, and sadly enough most of the others began to rally behind him.
I knew that if Starscream became leader the 'rust for brains' bot would either drive the army into the ground or die during the moment coronation only for the next over eager bot to claim the throne and die as well. No one was a strong as Megatron, and I didn't want to stick around to see either of these things happen, except maybe Starscream dying...I would savor every moment until I stopped functioning. With Megatron dead, the Decepticon cause died with him. In the next few cycles I plan to leave Cybertron...for good.
"Sorry miss Scratch we've already booked that DJ, 'COL-7' for tonight" said the irritating club owner.
I gritted my teeth. This was the tenth gig I lost to that poser, I stormed out of the club into the streets of Canterlot. It was going to be another rough night of drinking for me.
After that fashion show in Ponyville bombed it's was harder and harder for me to find a steady stream of gigs. I've even had to sell some of her equipment to cover the rent on my home leaving me with only the basic set of amps and a sound board. On top of that some colt copied my look, DJ name, and even my songs I remixed personally. If I didn't find a good gig soon I'd be out of a home, although maybe spending what little bits I have on booze doesn't help my case but I didn't care. Drinking made my problems go for a few hours.
A/N If you hadn't figured it out, I sincerely hate Starscream and I kid you not about the part with the sore throat...that actually happened in one of the old episodes. Anyways tell me what I need maybe offer a bit of advice. I love both MLP:FiM and the original Transformers so writing this is actually pretty fun, on top of the Vinyl is best pony and Soundwave is best robot!
