Transformers: All for OneTitle: All for One
Author's Note: This is currently a one shot, but if people like it and comment, I'll add more one shot chapters. My humorous stories tend to focus on Bumblebee, so I thought I'd shake things up and try my hand at a funny Decepticon story. I hope Starscream, Thundercracker and Skywarp are not too OOC-ish (it's been years since I saw the G1 show and I mainly know them from the IDW comics).

"Slaggit! This is ridiculous!" Skywarp ranted. "This is not our responsibility. It's it's demeaning!"
Forty-three, Thundercracker silently counted to himself. Forty-three outbursts. His trine brother had been complaining, loudly, since Megatron had assigned them to this cursed duty. Not that he blamed his wingmate. For unknown reasons, the trine had been assigned construction duty. Of all things, construction duty. They were hauling large metal beams over a

Thundercracker surveyed the mess hall. This late between shifts, only a few other 'cons were gathered, sipping their rations. He cupped his cube in his hands, hiding its contents. Once he confirmed no one was glancing his way, he stood and used the motion to slip the half full cube into a hidden compartment. The others ignored him. Satisfied, he left.

"Hid ? Wha ? Why? And, slag it Skywarp, I have a door!" Thundercracker growled at his trine mate. The black and purple mech had just materialized in the middle of his quarters, ignoring, as always, such common place courtesies as doors and knocking. Thundercracker leaned back in his berth, turning back to his datapad, and tried to tune out his fellow Seeker.

"You killed him." Skywarp stared at the body. He, Starscream and Thundercracker stood, frozen, as they considered the sight before them. They were in the main corridor leading from the mess hall to the upper level storage. Besides the three of them, the only other mech present was the still form at their feet.

"Oh, Primus, what's he doing?" Thundercracker winced.
"It's Skywarp. You don't want to know." Starscream did not bother to look up from the data card he held. "Just ignore him."
Thundercracker glanced at his trine leader. The other Seeker was right. Life was easier when he ignored Skywarp. But despite this sound advice, he couldn't keep his gaze away from the purple and black mech.
The three of them, and a few other Decepticons, were in the mess hall. Most of the first shift mechs had already finished their rations and left. A few, like Ravage, had arrived late and just now started sipping their energon. Thundercracker had finished his own fuel a while ago, but felt co

Author's Note: Frenzy and Rumble decide to partake in a holiday tradition as only they can. This is a humorous one-shot that is completely standalone from my other stories. It does make a small reference to the third chapter in my All for One series (The Boring One), but that one doesn't need to be read to understand this.
"Hey there, Blue. How's it going?"
Thundercracker pulled up short as Frenzy and Rumble greeted him, both grinning widely, arms clasped behind their backs. He contemplated fleeing back over the ocean as the two stepped to either side of the lift and gestured him on board. Either of them smiling meant trouble. Both, together and smiling, was catastrophic. Had the primitive humans known of those two, they'd have added their antics to the signs of a coming apocalypse. Undeterred by his hesitation, they stepped forward onto the Nemesis' landing pad and grabbed his elbows, one

Thundercracker paused, then glanced over his station controls. With a few flicks of switches, he set the bridge computers to inform him of any status changes. Satisfied the automatic alerts were in place, he turned to face his wing mate. Not speaking, he crossed his arms and leaned back in his seat. And stared.
The purple and black Seeker stared back. After a few moments, Skywarp burst out, still whispering, "What?"

It started with a teddy bear.
The thing seemed innocuous, with its dark brown fur and overly large eyes. It smiled serenely, as only a plush animal could. Holding its arms out wide, it reached for a hug. At odds with its peaceful demeanor was its glaring outfit: red and white striped pants, royal blue long-tailed jacket with red lining, and a red top hat, the blue underside covered in white stars. Still, even the wild clothes weren't enough to draw Frenzy's attention to it. The small Decepticon studied this strange stuffed creature for one reason.
Frenzy was bored.
Those three words caused near panic when uttered in the Decepticon base, the Nemesis. A similar reaction occurred with the phrase, 'Rumble is bored.' The two brothers cou

Truly, the indigenous lifeforms of this planet were convoluted, Starscream mused. Case in point, he considered the name they bestowed to the landmass he flew over. More than 75% of the surface was covered in ice, yet the fleshings called this place 'Greenland.' In fact, little green existed anywhere here. The Decepticon idly scanned for the color as he patrolled, compiling a ratio of occurrence between green and other colors present to pass his time. The results did not impress him.
As he circled toward the west coast, he strayed within a few miles of one of the humans scientific stations. The weather was clear as it had been on Starscream's other flybys and he wondered if the 'observation outpost' would 'observe' him. H

“I swear I will kill Rumble,” Starscream said, mouth twisted into a fierce grimace.
Dust filled the room, blinding his optics and clogging his vents. He forced several quick bursts of air through them. Perhaps he could clear the overworked mechanisms. It didn’t work. As soon as he hacked some out, more dust flowed in. Now he resembled some sort of pathetic organic thing, clearing its respiratory organs. He cursed quietly. At least his vocals weren’t tied intrinsically to his vents, like some fleshling.

Whoops...Ironhide and Sideswipe are on the Panama City beach fighting ten Decepticons.

The two Autobots have their backs on each other as the Decepticons surround them, weapons ready to fire.Whoops...4 years ago in Humor More Like This
"Hey, 'Hide. Got any ideas yet?" Sideswipe asks, not taking his optics off the Decepticons in front of him. The bigger mech does the same, but answers.
"Yeah. Transform to vehicle mode then spin your tires."
"I am not messing up my paint, Ironhide!"
"Do you want to go offline or do you want to live?!"
Sideswipe groans then remembers something. A part of his arm reveals a hole. He puts his right arm behind him then a ball comes out of the hole, rolls down his arm, and stops when its in the palm of his hand. The Autobot puts his arm to the front of him, lifts it up high then he slams the ball down to the sand. It bursts open
Love BiteThunderbee Prime, a week old sparkling, recharges in a corner of medic bay. After having a fun day with the new Prime, his parents decided to let him rest. Sitting right next to the sparkling, with his energon pistol out and ready, is his father, Electro Prime. There's a reason why he has his weapon out. A group of Decepticons almost kidnapped his son twice, that was enough to make him paranoid and overprotective. But the medic on the other hand doesn't think the weapon is necessary since the sparkling is in good hands. It doesn't matter to Electro though, and everywhere to him now is dangerous for a sparkling. Putting up his tools, Ratchet sighs at Electro.Love Bite4 years ago in Sci-Fi More Like This

Arcee opened her optics to see a dark silhouette hovering over her. The only light source came from the light blue optics peering down at her. She squinted a little, the blurry figure starting to become more clear, even if it was still a shadow. She recognized the two horn-like ornaments on top of its head, and the blue optics held a certain familiarity about them that made her almost instantly remember who it was.
She smiled at her old friend and reached out to place a servo on his faceplates. As soon as she touched him though, an icy cold jolted through her systems, making her pull back and shiver violently. Her smile dropped completely when she saw the shining blue optics turn light purple, as did the rest of the cracks and crevices in his frame. He leaned down closer to her and she saw the monster dark energon had turned her friend into.
No, he was not a friend anymore. A sparkless corpse was all he was. A sparkless corpse who was currently p

That had been Bulkhead's excited crow for seeing the ol' Wrecker again, but as he should have expected with Wheeljack, that happiness came with a price.

It only got worse when his independent buddy had butted heads with Optimus because he wasn't used to taking ordersa Wrecker had a Wrecker's pride, after all, and Bulkhead knew it was going to be hard for Wheeljack to take orders from anyone but the OLD big head honcho.

Have you ever been hurt by someone you love?
Blaster looked up at the question and the large mech whod asked it. Skyfire sat not far from the communications officer. Looking at the jet, one could see a mixture of emotions on his face, the most identifiable being sadness, anger, and pain. Blaster had seen that particular trio of emotion on the faces of his fellow Autobots for centuries and for many different reasons; a lot of the mechs who now called themselves Autobots had been hurt by friends and lovers whod fallen in with the Decepticons when the war began anew.
Skyfire was one whose pain was still new. Blaster knew that Starscreams allegiance to the Decepticons hurt the other mech, especially after Skyfire had seen the coldness in which Starscream carried out plans to attack the Autobots and the humans who allied themselves with them. He could see the pain etched into the faceplates of the larger mech and knew that the question he
There Goes The BaseA minute before a mission, Electro walked past his son, Thunderbee Prime, who was looking at his hands. Two days ago, he figured out that his right arm was plus and his left was minus, something that mostly had to do with electricity. A rare thing to have if the Cybertronian was able to control electricity. Now he wanted to know what'll happen if he put his index fingers together while putting the electricity in his hands, but his father didn't want him to do it, such thing could lead to a huge disaster.There Goes The Base4 years ago in Humor More Like This
The sight of his son staring at his own hands made Electro stop. He turned around to give him a glare.
"Thunderbee, I don't want you to do anything stupid while I'm gone. I already had enough complaints from Optimus last month and I do not want to tell you the same thing over and over again, got it?" He said, keeping his optics on Thunderbee. The younger Prime looked up at him then grinned.

She Could've Been SavedA year after the battle in Mission City, I was driving on a route called Route 66. It had good views, but I wasn't driving through there for the views. Optimus called me to tell me to go back to the new NEST base with another Cybertronian. The fembot followed me back to the base. That fembot was sombody I knew though. Someone who meant a lot to me. Her name was Starbust and we met each other way back when we were medics in training. We were like brother and sister because we repaired each other when the war was on Cybertron and would drag one another to a safe place. She was a blast to fight along side with, but she also had a virus that was waiting for the right moment.She Could've Been Saved4 years ago in Drama More Like This

Squishy Skipping on SundaysIt was a bright, clear Sunday morning over the Hoover Dam, and Prime was enjoying his early morning drive.

As he was returning to the old S7 site which had now been converted into his official residence, he noticed two pairs of wings perched on the very top of the dam. One silver, one gold, both neatly folded up and very close together, obviously trying not to be noticed. There were only two Cybertronians on Earth who had wings - Megatron in silver, and Starscream in gold. These two never sat together for long without fighting, so Prime immediately knew they were either a) doing something that would get them in trouble or b) already in trouble and planning their way out of it or c) lying low until they could cause more trouble later.

"Hey, check that one out," Carl nodded to his station partner.
"Tell me you're looking at a girl this time," Austin replied, not looking up. Carl was far too easily impressed. Ten times a day he pointed out a new vehicle to drool over. And, sadly, the Boss Lady continued assigning Carl with him.

Austin sighed. He dragged his eyes out over the lines of cars waiting for their emissions tests. It took only a moment to see what had caught Carl's eye this time.

"Blackout, what have you done?" Starscream challenged the other mech over a private comm. Moments earlier the helicopter-disguised Decepticon had informed his fellows, over an open channel, that he was engaging a human military installation.
"I'm getting answers. These organics know something of both Megatron's location and that of the Allspark. I'm tired of waiting for you. It's time to act!" Blackout declared, still over the open frequency.
"You fool," Starscream sneered. Realizing the rash mech would not keep this confrontation private, he switched to the open channel as well. If the other Decepticon wanted a confrontation, very well. "You will ruin everything that we've worked toward."
"That's what you'd have us believe. But what have we 'worked toward?' We have hidden ourselves among these creatures

Ratchet was woken from recharge by the sound of crying sparklings echoing through the unit. He groaned and nuzzled against Ironhide lightly. He felt the larger mech put his arms around his waist as the crying continued. It took both of them several breems to realize that the crying came from the sparklings that theyd settled into the room just across from their own.

Sideswipe was crying at the highest pitch his vocalizer could manage and Sunstreakers cries were just as loud, if not louder than his brothers.

A pregnant pause followed the announcement as everyone stopped what they were doing to let the information sink in. Even Arcee, who was still writhing in pain on the berth, couldn't help but sit up and stare in shock at both doctors. She held in an intake of air, as if waiting for the punchline to this joke. When her optics finally settled on Knockout, his dumbfounded expression confirmed that this wasn't a joke at all. She was really sparked.
"What does that mean? Being sparked?"
Of course it didn't take long for Miko to let her curiosity get the better of her and ask that question aloud. Jack would've stopped her, if he wasn't nearly as curious as Miko was.
