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.Clipped Chapter 11 year ago in Romance More Like This
"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
Clipped Chapter 6"Starscream, give me a hand," Ratchet requested. Everyone was on patrol, and the kids had school, but Starscream was on more or less a house arrest. The seeker walked over, obviously annoyed, and waited for instructions.Clipped Chapter 61 year ago in Romance More Like This
"Could you just hold this here?" Ratchet asked, pointing to a clip on the engine he was working on. Starscream obediently did so without the slightest quip, perking the doctor's interest. With some hesitation, the medic began," So..." He quickly ended his attempt to start up a conversation with the seeker. They didn't really seem have anything in common, and Ratchet wasn't much of a social butterfly anyways.

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.

"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 m
Clipped Chapter 8Ratchet had been working a solid two hours, the latter with Bumblebee's assistance. He just couldn't get the mech to stabilize. Noticing the scout's servos starting to fumble, the doctor called," Arcee, I could use a hand over here." They couldn't afford time for tired minds, and surgery took its toll, especially for those untrained.Clipped Chapter 81 year ago in Romance More Like This
Coming as requested, she looked to the floor and apologised," I'm sorry, but I feel I'm emotionally compromised."
"I'm sorry," the doctor echoed snidely. "But he doesn't have time for emotionally compromised."

As his optics unshuttered, the first thing they were drawn to was the blue femme standing off to the side of the room. "You... You're..."
She had been leaning against the wall, arms and legs crossed looking utterly bored, but at the sound of his voice she snapped to attention. Relaxing after the slight surprise, she finished his stumbling statement," I'm here?" Folding her arms again and lazily inspecting her servo in a show of disinterest, she explained," Yeah, Optimus said someone ought to be around when you woke up." That may hav

"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 injure
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?Clipped Chapter 41 year ago in Romance More Like This
"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
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.

Curtly, she replied," Fine."

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 eas
Clipped Chapter 9"Starscream?" A young voice called, rousing the immobile cybertronian out of his boring and mind-numbing staredown with the ceiling (neither had won yet, and Starscream was half to the point of vowing to blow up the ceiling once he got movement back so that he could win).Clipped Chapter 91 year ago in Romance More Like This
"What is it, fleshling?" He asked, glaring down at the boy with glasses, Raf he was pretty sure the name was. The boy had been thoughtful enough to remain in an area Starscream could see with his limited range of motion in his neck, or as the ex-con suspected, at least just happened to stay where he could see him out of luck.
"I know you don't like humans very much-"
Clipped Chapter 11"And that's the last of today's repair," Ratchet announced as he backed away and set down his soldering gun. "If my calculations are right, you should have a limited range of movement in you left limbs."Clipped Chapter 111 year ago in Romance More Like This
Starscream anxiously watched his left servo as he commanded it to move. At first, all that he accomplished was straining his optics as he stared it down, but slowly, the sensation of bending a single digit registered in his processors, swiftly followed by the others. Excitement filled Starscream as he managed to make a loose fist.
Ratchet gave a sigh of relief. It had been a long time since he had to do such a dramatic repair, and he hoped

Starscream tentatively looked back, the tips of his feet hanging over air. He stood at the very top of the military silo that the autobots called headquarters, dangerously close to teetering off the very tall building for a massive plummet to the harsh, abrasive rock below. Arcee looked so disconcerted... Why was she upset...?
"Starscream, answer me," Arcee instructed in a low, serious tone. She had noticed Starscream's absence and tracked him to the roof of their base, and just arrived to see something she found terrifying. The seeker's arms were held to the sides, and he looked for all intents and purpos
Clipped Chapter 18Sitting idly in a random storage room out of the way of the other autobots, Starscream sullenly reflected on recent events. It had been only days since his near betrayal, and it sure didn't seem like he'd be forgiven by the others like Ratchet said. They were more resentful around him than when he had initially joined the autobots.Clipped Chapter 1811 months ago in Romance More Like This
They didn't treat him poorly like he'd expected from prior experience of mangling relationships (though he had to remind himself he was no longer in the presence of decepticons), but the warmth he'd been growing accustomed to had ceased.

Transforming his servos into guns and back, Starscream grinned disbelievingly at them. He'd thought for a while that he'd never get a T-Cog again. Sitting up, he looked at the people who surrounded him, autobot and human alike. Never in his wildest dreams had he imagined receiving a replacement T-Cog with the help of Autobots, and never had he assumed humans to be present in the final picture either after being the victim of MECH's organ theft. Perhaps the sweeter additi
Clipped Chapter 21Heavy gunfire lit up the air as the autobots found themselves surrounded by not only vehicons, but Dreadwing and Megatron as well. Starscream locked optics with Optimus Prime, and both knew the plan was on. Racing forward together, they left the group and headed straight for Megatron, who prepared a shot from his cannon at their approach.Clipped Chapter 215 months ago in Romance More Like This
Once they were satisfyingly apart from the rest of the autobots, Starscream lunged to his side and struck some random parts of Prime, trying not to laugh at how the other tumbled to his knees from hits that literally did no damage. The semi was a gifted thespian. “Lord Megatron, I present you Optimus
Clipped Chapter 12"Bumblebee, you ready?" Arcee asked, walking to Ratchet and Starscream who were finishing the coordinates. Her partner eagerly gave the affirmative; the scout was positive their mission would succeed. Glancing to Starscream, she said," Those coordinates better be right.

"I'm sure I'd be even more displeased than you if anything happened, but don't worry, despite its difficulty in tracking, I'm sure I found the ship. I didn't mess up."

Clipped Chapter 17Arcee stalked out of med bay as she finished her explanation of what Starscream had done. She saw Optimus in her peripheral vision, but didn't care if he was following her. The femme just wanted to be away from the hopelessly broken expression Starscream had worn as she gave her final view on their relationship. Yeah? Well it's not requitted anymore. Had she meant it? Or had she just been angry? The words were harsh, but they had every right to be, she decided.Clipped Chapter 171 year ago in Romance More Like This

Clipped Chapter 16Starscream readied his blasters as he saw Megatron lit upon earth, the decepticon unfolding into robot form and sending him a smile. Out of habit, Starscream quickly began running all the past offences he'd committed against Megatron in the last while, the largest by far being his leaving the decepticons and sharing knowledge with both MECH and Autobots. He quailed as the leader of the decepticons approached.Clipped Chapter 161 year ago in Romance More Like This
Firing at Megatron, he wasn't at all surprised when the other didn't flinch and merely raised his cannon and shot at his old Second In Command. Dodging, Starscream prepared to launch a missile but Megatron's laugh stopped him.

"Starscream, I've been sent to terminate you, and I'm afraid my allegiance is with Megatron," The blue mech bellowed for any potentially eavesdropping audio receptors. The cybertronian jet made a thunderous boom as he passed over his brother.
Sensors disoriented, Starscream glared incredulously up at his trinemate. "What is the meaning of this, Thundercraker?" He noticed that while his sensors were buzzing with false information, the sonic strike had not been nearly as accurate or intense as it should have been.

It was ten in the morning on a saturday (and technically it had already been very early friday when Jack and he spoke).

It was a boring and lonesome day on the decepticon warship, as boring and lonesome as one could get when always surrounded by two others. Blitzwing laughed at this inner thought. Rather, it was boring and impossibly loud in his head, with no other outside stimuli that could break his mind numbing existence.
Would it kill a bot to walk onto the bridge and hold a small conversation? He promised not to bite, hard. The mech again laughed, absolutely without regard for what another would think should somebot actually bother to come. It wasn't like anybot was oblivious to their insanity, so why even bother?!
