TF: Old Soldier FIRST DRAFT Contest EntryTitle: Transformers: Old Soldier FIRST DRAFT Contest Entry
Universe: G1 (Pre-Earth)
Warnings: Violence, Non-canon character death
Author's Note: This is my (mostly) unedited first draft. The contest specified minimal editing, which was extremely difficult for me. While I don't think this is bad, it's not as refined as I'd normally post. In fact, there are two details which need work/editing. Hopefully, they're not as obvious to others as they are to me (since I'm super critical of my own work).
Smoke hung heavy over Praxus, obscuring optics and clogging vents. Here, the once proud city-state stood cracked and charred, covered in ash. The glorious crystals of the Helix Gardens, the pinnacle of Cybertronian art and beauty, lay shattered. Many of the civilians were gone, long since fled or dead. Those that remained had abandoned their civilian ways, forced into more militaristic roles.
Raising above the surrounding ruins, th

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). Time unit conversion Nano-klik: ~ 1 second; Deca-cycle: ~ 3 weeks
"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

Author's Note: This is a standalone story (like the previous chapters). It does reference my story 'Holiday Cheer,' but all backstory is provided for you. I wrote the energon cubes as about hand-sized, just because it makes more sense. Time conversions Joor: 6 hours, Deca-cycle: approx. 3 weeks, Vorn: 83 years. Talking through comm channels is shown, ::like this.::
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.
As the blue Seeker traveled toward the lift, his trine mate Skywarp approached walking, Thundercracker noted with surprise from the oth

Author's Note: This is technically the second chapter of my All for One story line, but it's completely standalone and can be read without reading the first chapter. The main premise for these ficlets is one group member getting the entire group punished for something he's done; a new take on the phrase 'all for one.' Comm transmissions are marked with colons ::like this.::
"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.
"I know you have a door! Who cares? We gotta go! Find someplace safe " Skywarp wrung his hands, eyes darting between his wing mate and the c

Author's Note: This is for the Flash Fan Fiction Friday theme, “stress.” We had to either include the emotion or the word. I don't normally do sequels, but I had several requests and this scenario came to mind and demanded I write it. Who am I to argue? Word count: 298
“Don't stress a strut, Scream – Starscream! It's just snow!” Skywarp said, vocals raised in panic. The teleporter cowered behind Thundercracker, away from their infuriated trine leader.
Starscream pointed his null-ray at the two. “You … you threw a ball of snow at my head!”
“Not me!” Thundercracker protested. He tried to move but the purple Seeker clung to him. “Skywarp, let me go or I'll let the twin terrors 'judo' you next time!”
“It's just a little snow!”
“Thundercracker, if you don't wish to be shot, I suggest you move,”

“It's boring in here,” Skywarp complained, wings slumped. He shot an irritable glance at Thundercracker, who lingered outside his cell. The blue Seeker chose to keep his incarcerated trine mate company partially from a sense of duty, but mostly to stay out of sight of the third member of their group. “I can't teleport. I can't fly. I want to do stuff.”
“It wouldn't be a punishment if it were fun,” Thundercracker pointed out. “And, when given the freedom to 'do stuff,' you tend to do things that lead you here.”
Skywarp snorted. “Do you know when they're going to release me?”
“I think you're scheduled for a few days past never.”
The teleporter groaned loudly. “It wasn't that ba

"I don't like it. It's too obvious. It has to be a trap." Ironhide motioned to the human's table, covered with the various objects the species seemed to believe necessary.
"It's not that obvious, though," Lt. Col. William Lennox replied. "Satellites have flown over Greenland " he shuffled through some papers, "well, regardless, they've been over that place a lot, and haven't seen any sign of anything. Yet these villagers and a couple science stations in the middle of nowhere spot a jet? Not once, but several times? If it is Starscream, and he's trying to lure us in, why hide from the satellites? That's the sure way to get our attention. It's just weird."

Starscream leaned back, a tight grin across his face. Three computer screens displayed rows and rows of formulas while a fourth scrolled through equations at a rapid pace. A holographic display diagrammed a three dimensional model of a complex molecule. The digital representation spun, allowing him to view it from any angle he desired. The various atoms and chemical bonds were color coded, forming an unique octodecimal spectrum. Beautiful.
His grin slipped into a smirk.
It worked. He'd ran over a thousand simulations, with only a 0.03% variance in results. Success. He had never doubted his eventual triumph. This miracle, this work of art, had taken over a vorn of s

“It's just so pointless, don't you think?” Skywarp asked, waving in the general direction of the repair bay. He and Thundercracker had just delivered their stasis-locked trine leader to the bay, after yet another of his failed assassination attempts on Megatron.
Thundercracker glanced at his trine mate and sighed. “Well, good luck explaining that to him.”
The purple and black mech laughed without humor. “Um, I don't think so. I like my wings attached, thank you very much.”
“Wait, who are you talking about?”
“Megs. Who else?” Skywarp stared at him blankly.
“Starscream. He's the one who always attacking Megatron.”
“Exactly my point!”

Author's Note: This is a stand alone story, although it's technically the third part of this series. This can be read without any previous knowledge of the others, although there is a passing reference to the second story. The theme behind these ficlets is one member of the Elite Trine (Starscream, Thundercracker and Skywarp) gets the whole group into trouble. Talking through comm channels is shown, ::like this.::
"This has become tedious, Skywarp. Stop boring me with your lies, and tell me what you did!"
"Ha! That's funny coming from you, Starscream, the master of lies! I didn't do anything, and you know it! I'm completely innocent. I refuse to be blamed for whatever you did this time."
"You are many things: moronic, juvenile, stupid, irresponsible, repugnant." Starscream counted the words out with his fingers. "The list goes on and on. But no where on that list does the word 'innoce

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

They appear to be in the same organization that assists the Autobots, Soundwave reported to Starscream, Megatron and Laserbeak. He uploaded relevant data and reports to the three. Starscream reluctantly admired the spymaster's skills. He had discovered the Autobots' human conspirators faster than imagined. Thankfully, that shouldn't interfere with Starscream's plans. Assuming the Autobots were halfway competent.
There are Autobots there? Megatron asked.
Well done, Soundwave.
Starscream snarled silently. The orbiting bot had spies sitting in Boston for all this time, and until Starscream mentioned it, he had never noticed the humans. Yet, Megatron congratulated him. Intolerable.

Author's Note: This is PaDiYaFLAME's (long overdue) prize fic for catching my kiriban. She requested a “prank war” between some well known pranksters. TC's along just because I love tormenting him. Looking back at her note, I'm not exactly sure this is what she had in mind. I hope she likes it. There's one segment where I purposely omitted the conversation tags. All four of them have lines (if briefly), and I wanted to see if I could convey who each was clearly without specifically saying, "so-and-so said this." Time conversions – Deca-cycle: approx. 3 weeks.
Assigning five Decepticons to scout a power plant might, under normal circumstances, seem like overkill. Located near a river, the plant sprawled over a large, otherwise uninhabited stretch of land. Concrete buildings with tall chimneys, storage facilities, stacks, and numerous generators comprised the complex. Paved paths

“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.
Warnings on his HUD display pinged as his internal temperature slowly started climbing and his vents failed to compensate. Nothing serious. Yet. He planned to be long gone before the dust and heat buildup caused any permanen

"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
