It is midday, but the tunnels of the sewer system are dark and humid. Summer rains had filled the subterranean canals, and torrents of runoff rush beneath the outskirts of a city. At one of the system's points of convergence, where the canals combine into a single river, the passageways cease their dark journey and open into a large room, reverberating with the sounds of thundering water. Sunlight filters in through gratings in the ceiling like illuminated daggers. The labyrinth of channels roared with a ferocity that would easily sweep any unfortunate human to their doom; however, humans were not the sentient beings present.
Inaudible over the din, six metallic feet clank along the damp concrete and step into the light of the room. Three Transformers move forward in a horizontal line, shoulder to shoulder. On one side, a hulkin

Shards of glass, chunks of decimated concrete, and scraps of shredded metal litter the scene. Smoke spirals from deep craters scarring the once-perfect streets. Bright flashes of weaponry flare against the dark grey shadows cast by the fading sun, the staccato barrage of gunfire throbbing in the background.
All signs of success.
He stands, red and black armor glinting brilliantly in the harsh indigo glow emanating from the streams of pure energy leaking into the sky. His weapon, a menacing double-bladed sword, is clutched in his hand as his optics sweep the landscape spanning out below him. He nods in approval.
He smiles, his metallic face plates clicking to form the expression. He's vaguely aware of two mechs struggling on the ground beneath his perch, but ignores it, the only thought circling his mind being one of victory.
And then it all erupts.
His thoughts are sliced to shreds as the concrete structure beside him ruptures into a thousand pieces of charr

Sideswipe lifted his optics to the skies. Hed been on the planet for only a couple of Earths months and those months had been busy. The Autobots had been constructing their base of operations in the hills outside Tranquility and, between the work put into the base, the work they did for the human government and the continuing search for wayward Decepticons, Sideswipe had been unable to take a minute to watch the skies since hed arrived.
The red mech stood alone in the field, away from the busy roads, away from the prying eyes of humans. His optics shone an otherworldly shade of blue, bright electrical light that pierced the darkness of the night. It was cold that night, but the temperature did not bother him; the chill was nothing compared the cold of space.

A Lesson in HistoryThursday afternoons always seemed to be the most stressful to Jack. So close to Friday-and by association, Saturday- and yet so far away. There was minimal homework to be done save for the consistent decree of generic studying, which seemed like a fruitless effort given the choice of scouring the small print of an out of date text book and playing Miko in a friendly rematch of Speed Demons II on the Gamestation. Gamestation always won out in the end. Unless something more interesting came about. Which was often. There never seemed to be a dull moment or a frame of time in which something interesting was not happening- be it an alien medic commandeering their science fair projects, an attack of small cannibalistic metal munchers from space, or an enemy sneaking into the base disguised as a beloved comrade from long ago the ultimate wolf in sheep's clothing!A Lesson in History4 years ago in Short Stories More Like This

Autobots by the dozens came, all bearing the marks of mournful contemplation. They heeded a call that was as silent as the grave, tugging at their sparks to draw them forth through the night. They came by creeping paces, their feet barely making a sound through the halls. Their optics glowed with only dim light, heads hung low, expressions grim. The only noise in corridors came from the hushed swish of pneumatic doors opening and closing as more Autobots heeded the call that summoned their sparks from recharge, drawing them from their berths to the place where they needed to be.
They came in a trickle- one by one. Slinking, shuffling figures wrapped in a cloak of silence. Some came in groups, their arms around each other for support. Work stations were abandoned by even the most diligent of bots, the call too strong to resist. The courtyards emptied of late-night walkers. From the nooks and crannies and the very bowels of the base came the bots who w

Causeway slowly walked over to his desk placing a gentle hand on his shoulder, as she spoke to him, “Optimus I know you are still upset over the ones that are gone, I... I myself miss my father dearly, but in know he would not want me to morn over his death, please my sweet spark, do not let me lost that mech I love so deeply, I am sorry that this all happened. But Please you are the bravest the mech I ever known, your spark is strongest of sparks, This I do know, my father knew it too.”
Optimus heard her words as he just closed his optics and the anger in him built up inside him as he stood up fast causing her to step back as he took a few steps to the balcony of their room that was now located on their new home on the ship that had Crashed in China.... The brok

It was supposed to have been a simple mission, in and out in an astrosecond without any security device being triggered.
As far as Arcee could tell they had triggered not only local security but the entire base as well.
Well, she thought, their mission had been carried out and they were getting out, simple!
'Arcee! Above us!!'
Arcee barely had time to duck as a turret above them scattered its lethal barrage right in their path. One of their group wasn't fast enough, his life disappearing in a cloud of shattered metal, spilt energon and a brief scream.
All that remained of him toppled over, energon spreading beneath him as his remains grew ashen in death.
'You all right?' Arcee asked the sole remaining 'bot with her.
What was his name again? Springhead?! 'Springhead!?' She asked.
''m fine!!' Springer grumbled, struggling to get to his feet.
'Good.' Arcee offered, checking their position.

Prime tried to move and found his relays frozen.
That alone would have been disconcerting were it not for the intense pounding within his helm, as if Rumble was trapped inside and trying to escape.
Why am I on the floor? He asked himself, waiting patiently as his optics focused on his immediate surrounds. The Rec Room was in semi darkness save for strobe lights flashing madly overhead. When had the base acquired strobe lights?
The strobe lights he could understand, the stacks of evaporating high grade cubes scattered across the floor and atop the tables, that too he could understand.
Blaster offline atop a makeshift stage and sporting an Elvis bouffant wig ... that was a little harder to grasp.
So was Wheeljack tucked alongside him, decked out in a bandoleer, sombrero and fake moustache.
What had happened? Prime wondered. Why was Cliffjumper covered in fluorescent Autobot symbols? Why was Windcharger

TF Prime: AgingThe sunset was just beginning to turn to dusk as Optimus drove through the windless afternoon. There was indeed a lot on his mind then. Wheeljack had just arrived as a result of a crash-landing earlier, and everyone, especially Bulkhead, seemed to really enjoy his company. They were all back at base, celebrating his arrival; Optimus himself chose not to partake, not that he wasn't fond of Wheeljack, he just wasn't the kind to party, being a Prime and all. But thinking back, there might have been another reason to it. He sighed as he continued to drive into the evening.TF Prime: Aging3 years ago in Romance More Like This
The next day, they found out that "Wheeljack" was just Makeshift spying on them, trying to find out the location of their base for the Decepticons, and that the real Wheeljack was kept prisoner until he, well, broke out and took care of the cons himself. Though Optimus had invited him to join their team, he declined, saying that his ship had just finished

Some sort of continuing roar.
Ironhide groans as his optics slowly slide into focus. He blinks a few times, disoriented.
Where am I?
He tries to move, but something's keeping him pinned in an uncomfortable position. Whatever it is bites into the sensitive metal on his wrists and ankle joints.
His processor is going about a million miles an hour as he tries to piece together his surroundings.
It's white. Too white. He's bathed in an unforgiving light from somewhere above.
"How nice of you to join us, Ironhide."
The evil voice scrapes through his audio receptors as he turns towards it.
"What " he begins to say, but trails off as a new wave of pain hits him, centered in his throat.
The voice laughs. Ironhide knows he recognizes it, but he can't think of whom it belongs to at the moment
"Soundwave. Will he be ready for the arena soon?" the voice says.
A pixilated voice answers. "Energon levels at forty five percent. Heavy wounds

The next morning I woke up rubbing my eyes. I had fell asleep on the couch in the main room after coming back from riding with Bumblebee to drop off Raf at home. I looked around the main room and saw Ratchet working on his computers.
"Morning Ratchet" i said groggily.
Ratchet nodded in greeting never taking his eyes off the computer. I stetched as I stood up and got up off the couch climbing down the stairs to the main floor. I looked up as Optimus came into the main room. I smiled up at him.
"Morning Optimus" i said softly.
Optimus looked down at me and smiled softly before he knelt down on one knee to my level.
"Good Morning Kairi. How was your night?" he asked gently.
I smiled at him stretching again as i yawned.
"Great, and yourself?" i asked softly.
Optimus smiled and offered me his hand. I climbed onto it and he stood slowly before settling me on his shoulder and heading out of the main room.

"Elita, dear there is no need for you to worry," Optimus chuckled softly as he gazed up at his rose red and pink mate.
"It's no use trying to talk him out of it, Elita." Ratchet commented as he applied a bit too much pressure than necessary to seal up a damaged Energon line causing the Prime to wince slightly.
"Your mate's too stubborn. Self-sacrifice is hardwired into his processor." Ratchet huffed as he finished sealing up the damaged Energon lines and was now in the process of welding the wound shut.
"It's alright Elita, there's no need for you to worry, really." Optimus replied, gazing up at his mate with loving optics, smiling under that dreaded

Lennox strode from the medical wing nestled in the corner of the NEST hangar. He glared up at me, and I sensed hostility drifting from his frame, but his demeanor quickly softened as his gaze met mine. I leaned down to his level, blinking my optic covers as I knelt. Fatigue was quickly catching up to me. I could feel it dragging at the corners of my processor, my thoughts lulled into a steadily slowing pace.
"I I'm sorry, Opt," Lennox quickly said, stifling a yawn. "I'm just stressed, but I shouldn't take it out on you. I was already worried out of my mind trying to find you and then you showed up with the two girls It was all too much. I'm sorry. I really am."
"Apology accepted," I said. "Thank you for acknowledging my requests, Lennox. I needed to know that they would be in a place where I could keep my optic on them."

Death: Can there ever be enough? The stagnant odor of burnt and decaying flesh has brutally devoured my five senses for the past two weeks. The smell is so repulsive I just want to puke in the nearest ditch. God, what have we become? This war has branded its mark of tragedy across this entire planet in the form of mass murder. The killings could have been prevented if one person refused to press that crimson button. A button baptized in the blood of millions of innocent men, women, and children. The exact same blood is what I see; it is all I can feel.

After a long patrol one night in the Nevada desert, Optimus Prime started to head back to base. It had been a long day for him and the other Autobots, constantly looking for more Energon mines for fuel.
As he arrived and entered the base, he noticed that everyone was in the Med bay with some excitement going on. He didn't sound bad, but he noticed that almost…joyful; he walked up closer to behind everyone in front of him. As soon as he got in front of everybody else, he is shocked to find a red and orange flamed female Autobot; who happens to be his sparkmate lying on the berth, and his medic trying to help her off of it.
“What’s wrong with Causeway, Ratchet?” Optimus asked a little worried; Ratchet looked at his leader with a happy smile on his face, “Congratulations, old friend,” Ratchet said with happiness.

It was meant that me, Optimus and Causeway would be out to find the Energon that I located somewhere in the Alpena, we decided to split up to find it faster but what we didn't count on was that Megatron was there for the Energon to.

Sitting back in his chair Optimus let out a soft sigh thinking back when Elita was captured by Megatron, “Primus Please guide me in the right direction, I do not want harm to come of anyone here on this Planet nor do I want anyone taken into the hands of Megatron.

Optimus Prime leaned back on his seat and took a few astroseconds, allowing his central processors to properly correlate and store all the information presented to him on the datapad reports collected by Prowl, his Second in Command.
Prime always admired and deeply appreciated Prowl's dedication to his work but sometimes wished the mech would spend time in other pursuits, especially after he cast a quick glance at the datapads stacked atop his work console, the ones he'd yet to inspect.
Prime found himself presented with two options: to carry on and complete his reading of Prowl's reports, however long it took, or excuse himself for a cycle or two to ease the present assault of his central processors.
'Let's take a break.' Prime smiled and allowed his faceplate to detract.
He rose and stretched, allowing stiff joints to unlock and activate until all systems read in order before stepping outside his quarter

He spins around to face the yellow mech behind him. Without a second thought, he fires his lazar cannon into the yellow armor, satisfied when the Autobot falls under his attack, letting out an agonized series of clicks and beeps from his damaged vocoder.
The satisfaction of another victory distracts him for a vital second as he backs up to finish the Autobot off with a blast from his ranged weapons. Immediately he slams into the cold metal of a much larger Transformer's leg.
His gaze slides skyward and locks with the fiery blue optics of the Autobot towering over him. A grin spreads across the black mech's face plates as he aims his arm cannon.
