Transformers Essay - Section 5Section 5.1 FliersTransformers Essay - Section 5 in Fan Fiction More Like This
As far as Cybertronians go, fliers ("true" fliers) are something of a unique breed. Despite their rarity, they are a valuable addition to any team. Light, swift, and versatile, their natural inclination is to seek out other fliers in mating predominantly as a method to propagate their own kind.
Fliers, unlike most ground-bound mechs and femmes or those whose flight capabilities are limited to robot mode and jet-packs, are much more easily divided into those who are dominant and those who are submissive. These two factors play a large role in the choosing of a mate, though it may not be readily obvious to someone on the outside looking in exactly how dominance is decided in a relationship.
Not easily defined by size or appearance alone, personalities are what places them apart. A mech who is dominant in one relationship could, potentially, be submissive in another. As such, even a more submissive mech will be drawn to someone
Transformers Essay - Section 2Section 2.1 - The Nature of BondingTransformers Essay - Section 2 in Fan Fiction More Like This
Mentioned in the first section was "bonding." You are probably finding yourself asking what bonding is, exactly. Bonding is the act by which two Cybertronians literally "bond" at spark-level, merging the energies of the individuals into a single energy for a short period of time. The act itself is called "bonding" for more reasons than the simple merging of spark energy, however. The act of bonding creates a bond of sorts between the two who engage in it, creating a link between the two that is the psychic equivalent of what humans assign to the exchanging of rings and vows during a wedding ceremony. Gender, in the case of a Cybertronian, is hardly an issue - especially morally speaking (and especially considering that gender isn't really something they acknowledge), and with so few femmes in existence on their world, it is almost unheard of for a mech and a femme to bond than two m
Transformers Essay - Section 3Section 3.1 - ReproductionTransformers Essay - Section 3 in Fan Fiction More Like This
This is perhaps the touchiest subject in TransFandom. How can a pair of giant autonomous robots reproduce, after all? The answer to this is painfully simple.
The spark bond as it was explained in section 2.1 has more uses beyond the practical joining of a pair who wish to be sparkbound. The longer two sparks remain merged together during the bond, the more energy is created between the two. Should the bonded pair or group leave their sparks bonded for too long, there is a high chance of a "bud" being created.
The bud is a small polyp of energy off the parent spark and it tends to form on the spark of the member of the bonded pair or group with a higher power level. In the case of a mech being the carrier, they will often go into an extented recharge stasis period while the body directs most of its available energy sources not dedicated to maintaining proper fluid circulation and overall heal
Transformers Essay - Section 1Section 1.1 - The Spark</b>Transformers Essay - Section 1 in Fan Fiction More Like This
Perhaps the most important thing that will be discussed in this essay is the very life essence of every transformer. It is a globe of plasma-based energy, blue and pulsating, that resides within a chamber in the chest area of every Cybertronian. Each spark carries an individual resonating signature that makes it unique to the mech or femme it gives life to, and it plays an essential role in many things: determining one's personality, finding a potential mate, and the propagation of the species outside of the Well of All Sparks.
Introduced by Beast Wars canon and used in almost every American interpretation that followed, the spark was a retcon that was widely embraced throughout the transformers fandom. It became a way to say, for certain, that the Cybertronians we grew up with were more than just a race of advanced AI. They were a living species, a mechanical organism with the ability to think, feel, rea
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 1 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 as concerning as the small rocks that hit him while he lie on the ground; only a warning of the much more substantial boulders that hurriedly followed.
Starscream moaned in discomfort as he came to, a sharp pain twinging right broad wing. Without thinking much of the situation he was in, he jerked left as he sat up. A sharp metallic sound echo
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 11 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 he never had to again. "Now don't strain yourself. When I said limited, I meant it. It'll be quite some time before you're walking," He warned, not liking how eager to test his limits his patient looked.
"I could care less about walking," The seeker said, managing half of a shrug. "What I yearn for is flight."
"We both know that's somethin
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 don't like the idea of bridging to a blind area in the sky."Clipped Chapter 12 in Romance More Like This
"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."
"Well Primus knows you're good at it, so I'm not getting my hopes up," She replied with a smirk.
Starscream was about to make a comment to the effect of 'Ha ha, very funny' but was interrupted by Ratchet. "Okay, now that you've got the romantic scrap out of the way, feel ready to actually go through with the mission? I've got the coordinates set."
Arcee stiffened at the remark. Awkwardly placing a servo over the seekers for a brief moment, that was probably the closest to a public hug as she'd

"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 manufactured, and all for gaining esteem and power.
Rust rash covered the entirety of Fallstreak's face, and flaked off as he opened his mouth and said," Starscream, it's too late for apologies."
Pain constricted Starscream's spark and he had to look away from his suffering friend. Fallstreak was probably the closest friend Starscream had made sin
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 8 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."
Arcee nodded solemnly, and asked," Okay, what is it you need me to do?" She was thankful to receive comprehensible orders. Ratchet knew how to control a medical situation, even in situations like this.
In an ideal setup, he'd have a team of bots, mechs who could tell the difference between a rotary linkage cable and the other black cable that the blue femme swore looked exactly like it. Or, he would at least have a few bots dedicated to the learning
Clipped Chapter 3"Prime?!" Fowler's voice came through the console.Clipped Chapter 3 in Romance More Like This
"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 injured. And, the intruder only took two missiles."
"Only two? What kind?" Ratchet asked.
"A set of AIM-9L Sidewinders," The other responded.

"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 hips. "You said almost, right? Then I guess we can forgive you." She didn't really see the point of him owning up to it if he didn't actually go through with it.
"I had been thinking to appease Megatron, I don't what came over me!"
She scoffed at this. He had chronic backstabbing disorder, that's what. She glanced curiously as he continued his pleading

"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.
"If you're going for optimum output, might I suggest you reroute the power relays like this?" He traced a path that wound in a significantly different pattern than the pre-existing one.
"Hmm, I didn't even consider that."
"Yet, I'm sure," Starscream automatically added.
"No need for flattery here. It won't get you anywhere," The medic shrugged off. Taking a

"Woah, Arcee, you okay?" He asked, still shoving his helmet on while trying to appear as if he was driving.
Curtly, she replied," Fine."
"Yeah, try telling me that while you're not trying to run a red light."
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 easily."
"What's that you're always telling me about the whole-"

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 have been a slight bending of the truth.
"Oh, I see..."
Flickering her gaze up and back down, she grimaced. Optimus Prime hadn't said anything like that; it was a complete lie, she had come on her own will. "I- I volunteered."
Starscream didn't quite have the energy to evade his feelings like she did, and simply said," I'm glad."

A casual observer would think that they're relationship is perfect
But in reality it is only close to it
Yet they both know that they were always meant to be
For when they are together, their problems melt away
Nothing in the outside world matters; everything goes well
When they are together they do many things to express their love
Those can not be detailed here due to this being for anyone to read
As Cybertronians, like humans, deserve their privacy when doing things alone
I am speaking of Optimus Prime and Causeway
The two Autobots who are almost like parents to my sister figure Override and I
As well as to others who are their allies, no matter which species they are
Just as their relationship isn't perfect so too are they not so
Yet they always try to do the right thing and are there for those who need them
Doing what they can to help out
When they are together, Optimus and Causeway make the most of it

Of sparklings and human college students ch. 11Dana had been in the room she stayed in whenver visiting the base and waiting for hours to hear what had happened to the little sparkling she had called her sister.

The red headed college student sighed with some relief but was also somewhat angry. "If I ever meet the ones who kidnapped her, I'll-"
"They have been arrested and justice will be served for what has happened." someone interrupted the conversation.
Dana turned around to see that it was Optimus Prime himself who had said this. "Sideswipe, return to your duties."
"Yes sir." Sideswipe left the room and the Autobot leader shut the door behind him. Dana didn't want to talk but if Optimus wanted her to, she would. She wasn't going to argue with someone who was as tall as a skyscraper and who had once taken on 3 of his ene

The blue sparkling awoke; the first thing she noticed was Causeway recharging on a chair next to the berth and that Ratchet was also there "Diamond, it's good you're awake but don't try to sit up yet".
"Ratchet, how long was I sleeping?" Diamond asked, somewhat weakly.
"It was around 8:00 p.m. when you were brought in here and it's 9:00 a.m. now so roughly around 13 Earth hours". the Autobot medic replied.
Causeway soon awoke. "Oh thank Primus." she said, gently hugging Diamond.
Everything else that happened on that first day of recovery was a blurr; Optimus, Dino, Snowdew, Wheeljack and many other Autobots came in and visited, one at a time of course due to Ratchet insisting on that being less stressful.

"Diamond, you've got to wait patiently for her." Snowdew pointed out.
"It's so hard to wait though!" the sparkling whined.
"Whining isn't going to make her come any faster." Causeway said gently. "I'm sure you can find something to do until she gets here."
"Do you want some cheese with your whine?" Master Sargent Epps joked. "That's what I always say to my kids."

Nobody thought Diamond would notice it; they kept her busy either playing with little Hot Rod, learning more about her Cybertronian heritage, and playing with her toys. The blue sparkling did notice her adopted older sister Snowdew being jealous of the newest Autobot Adrianna, who had once been a human but had voluntarily been turned Cybertronian. This confused her greatly but she had been told by Sideswipe and Dino not to worry about it.
