Carrying it as if it were some great task placed upon their shoulders.
But in truth, I view such individuals as the weakest of men.
A leader is not one marked out by an honourary title,
Nor are they the cowards crowned by a right of birth.
A leader is not made by the wealth of their coffers
and they are certainly not forged amidst oratory diatribe.
To me, a leader will always be the one who stands on the front-line.
They are the heroes that show; despite our mortal frailty
that we can overcome the odds.
And it is not by a quirk of fate or by some gross dint of luck,
but by the sheer grit and determination
that we often show in the face of life's adversities.
That will forever be what a leader is to me,
And the only question now is if I will ever be worthy...
Curse you to the bottom of The Pit!
I have been under your illusion for too long
But I am blind no more
I see your faults as clear as day
There is no turning back
From you I get no respect
And you would gladly throw my life away if it meant satisfying your greed
If following you is the school of hard knox
I am the valedictorian
But not without a few scars
What truly haunts me
To the core of my very Spark
I may have once been able to feel compassion
I may have known what friendship was
But no more
It has been replaced
Scab by scab, you have taken that away from me
A treasure I may never have again
By the lessons of your abuse
Unwittingly, you have created a monster that in the end,
You will never be able to control
I will destroy you and claim leadership of the Decepticons for myself
And if you retort with a petty threat, I will reply with these two words:
Important Note: Measured in Earth Years, this is a rough guide to many crucial events involving the Cybertronians, the Nebulans, the Seraphims and the Quintessons, that happened before and during the Great War, eventually leading to the events on Earth which involved humanity. These events stretch over a vast amount of time. Please do take notice that most of the events mentioned here occurred at the same time as the Great War of Cybertron and beyond.
As information about the ancient times has been scattered and inconclusive, most details in this Timeline have been gathered from the Covenant of Primus (in the possession of Alpha Trion) and the history records of Vector Sigma. Additional details will be added soon to explain the events between the time gaps between the major events.
[Approx. 15 Billion Years BCE (Before Common Era)] The Universe was created. The Forces of Darkness and Light exist in perfect equilibrium. Until
I and I alone can lead the Decepticons to victory
My ambition soars higher than the skies of Cybertron
What you call "failure" I call a mere temporary setback
It is only a matter of time before I prevail
My destiny is inevitable
I am a master of deception, the essence of the existence of the Decepticons
I may slow my advance but I shall never surrender
The path I have chosen is a length I do not know
But I do know when the path is brought to an end, I shall arrive at my dream
I will never stray from my path
You say I don't know when to quit
But tenacity, to me, is more than a word
It is a way of life
Fittingly, my spark has likened itself after my personality
You may call it mutant,
But it is indestructible
It needs no body to survive
I can never be destroyed
I am Indestructible
You ask me to surrender?
Never! Now I, Starscream, lead. And I say attack!
My time will come, Megatron
Say "I'll kill you"
And I'll just reply with these two words:
