    Location: Autobot Bravo Base, British Columbia, Canada.

    After raiding a Decepticon outpost for some much-needed Energon and ammunition, the Bravo Autobot crew returns to their forrest base. Inside, General Hound walks over to his custom-made solid oak rocking chair, where he flips a switch to activate the holigraphic moose head and bear rug.
    Hound greatly enjoyed Earth and always wanted to have a log cabin, so he had his office transformed into his own personal "man cave". After lighting a fire in the fireplace, and setting hs hot mug of oil on his oak end-table, he proceded toward his bookshelf.
    He selected the book "By The Smelting Pools" by Orion Pax. He turned the book over to read the description, it read, in Cybertronix: "The true tale of the brave Autobot platoon who risked life and spark during the tragic Battle of Darkmount Pass, as they struggle againsed impossible odds to defeat the evil Lord Straxus and rescue the brave young mech known as Scrounge."
    Hound went back to his chair, slowly rocking while sipping his oil, and reading about one of Cybertron's bloodiest battles...

    Just a little update: The continuity is my personal G1 continuity. Autobot Alpha Base is located in Oregon, like the G1 cartoon. This is the main base, with Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, etc., Bravo Base is the secondary base set up to monitor the Decepticon threat in BC. The autobots here are lead by General Hound. His crew of Autobots includes Inferno, Red Alert, Cliffjumper, Brawn, Warpath, Bluestreak, Smokescreen, Mirage, and Tracks. The Decepticons are lead by Blitzwing. Astrotrain, Octane, Dirge, Thrust, and Ramjet are the others, along with a few troopers.

    Chapter 2 teaser:

    The young Autobot in the catacombs saw a massive, stocky Decepticon with a fearsom pick-axe. Before the Aoutobot could turn to run, he was shot in the leg by the massive Decepticon's shoulder-mounted gatling gun. As the Decepticon lumbered over him, the Autobot pleaded, "Please! Have mercy! Please!" "Mercy is not dispenced here, !" The Decepticon replied, "only DEATH!" The Decepticon then plunged his pick-axe into the Autobots abdomen, transformed, and drove off, as the Autobot's Energon slowly drained from his wound, untill his spark went out...

    Deep within the Decepticon-controlled state of Kaon lies the twisted province of Polyhex, home of the sick-minded, demented sadistic Decepticon overlord, Straxus. Considered evil and voilent even by Decepticon standards, Straxus was infamous for his treatment of Autobot prisoners; after being subjected to various cruel experiments by his second-in-command, Jhiaxus, Straxus sent any survivors of these experiments to the Smelting Pools. Before the war, these pools were used to melt down scrap metal to be recycled into spare parts for hospitals and weapons for the military. Now, however, they are used By Straxus to subject prisonersto a slow, exrutiating death. It is said that it takes up to three days for the molten Cybertronian metals to melt through to the spark chamber, thus most Autobots are still alive for quite a while after being thrown into the pools. Hound began to read. Some time into the war, the young Autobot spy, Scrounge was captured by Straxus. Scrounge was carrying information vital to the Autobot's victory. Elite Gurad Commander Dai Atlas sent a group of brave Autobots into Polyhex. It was up to the Cybertron Elite Guard to Rescue him. Lead by the noble Thunderclash, the Elite Guard consisted of Landshark, Flak, and Kup. Just then, he was interrupted by the beeping of his computer. It was the Elite Gurad* leader, Ultra Magnus. "Hound! We need your military experience for a mission" said Magnus. "What for?" asked Hound. "I thought the Elite Gaurd were trained for everything!" "Indeed Hound, but we need as many soldiers as we can get! Optimus is busy dealing with Megatron, and the Wreckers are probably dead. You're the only ones we can ask!" replied Magnus. "Alright, Magnus." said Hound. "What's the porblem?" "...Straxus has escaped from Garrus-9!"

    And so concludes chapter 1



    *The Elite Guard consists of Ultra Magnus, Kup, Blurr, Arcee, Springer, and Hot Rod.

    Chapter 2

    After informing the others, Hound and the rest of Bravo team boarded their shuttle and flew off to Iacon state. There, they were greeted by Ultra Magnus. He led them to the Elite Guard base and introduced Kup, Springer, Arcee, Blurr, and Hotrod, and the new recruits, Junkions Wreck-Gar and Junkheap, and the rookies, Bumper and Tailgate. All 20 Autobots boarded the Elite Guard's armoured mobile base, "Powered Convoy", and proceded to Polyhex.

    Polyhex, home of the infamous fortress of evil, Darkmount. The Autobots proceded toward the entrance of the imposing fortress. The massive doors were locked, there was only one way to open them. "Cliff! ordered Hound, "You know what to do!" Cliffjumper examined the doors. "Stand back, guys!" Cliffjumper then pulled out a large round object. He placed it on the doors, and a screen flashed on. Cliffjumper punched in a code, then ran back to the others. "Wait for it!" said Cliff. *BOOM* The device exploded and the doors were blasted open. Now they just need to find Straxus, and try to get out alive!

    Once inside, the Autobots split up. Most went in the same general direction, but Kup, Tailgate, and Bumper went down to the lower levels. Once there, they found three hallways. "This one leads to the labratory, this one to the catacombs, and this one to the archives." said Kup. Kup chose to go to the labratory, Bumper to the catacombs, and Tailgate to the archives. After a short walk, Kup got to the labratory entrance. Inside, he saw horrific experiments. Disected seekers. Mutilated mini-cons. Decomposing Autobots infected with cosmic rust and scraplets. And most horrid of all, a massive Decepticon, hunched over a table, buzzsaw in hand, cutting up some unfourtunate Autobot. He eerily turned around. In a raspy, Energon-curdling voice, he said "Ah! Kup! Nice to see you again after all these years! Say, what have you been up to?" He then let out a sadistic laugh, put down his saw, and plunged a laser scalpel into the Autobot's carcass and walked toward Kup, his feet shaking the room with every step. "Jhiaxus. I should have known you'd still be here, you little rusted-out pile of lugnuts!" said Kup, "So you've been slinking around here like an old insecticon scince the Battle of Darkmount Pass, eh?" "Perhaps..." relpied Jhiaxus, "I have a lot of work to do. But I seem to be a bit short on... test subjects... How would you like to be my volounteer, Kup?" "Over my rusted, gunmetal-grey, sparkless husk, you sonovaQuintesson!" replied Kup. "That's too bad" said Jhiaxus, "I need a live subject for this project..." Jhiaxus pulled out a dagger and lunged at Kup, barely missing him. "You scratched my rotator cuff!" said Kup. Kup ran toward the table, pulled out the laser scalpel, and threw it at Jhiaxus. It hit him right in the shoulder. "AAAAAHHHGGGG!" screamed Jhiaxus "That Autobot had Cybonic Plaugue! Now I need to get the cure from the back room! You may have won this fight, Kup, but I will find you, and when I do, not even a DNA test will be able to identify what's left of you! I WILL find you!" And with that, Kup made his escape. He decided to wait in the corridoor for the others.

    Meanwhile, Bumper whas nearing the end of the catacombs when he young Autobot heard a loud "thud". Bumper turned and saw a massive, stocky Decepticon with a fearsom pick-axe. Before Bumper could turn to run, he was shot in the leg by the massive Decepticon's shoulder-mounted gatling gun. As the Decepticon lumbered over him, Bumper pleaded, "Please! Have mercy! Please!" "Mercy is not dispenced here, !" The Decepticon replied, "only DEATH!" The Decepticon then plunged his pick-axe into Bumper's abdomen, transformed, and drove off, as the Autobot's Energon slowly drained from his wound, untill his spark went out...

    Tailgate had found nothing important in the archives. He opened the door and began to walk back to the corridoor when he heard a faint chittering on the ceiling. He looked up and saw 6 yellow glowing optics staring back at him. The creature jumped down behind Tailgate. It was a giant mutated Insecticon. Tailgate ran as fast as he could. The Insecticon persued him at incredible speed. Tailgate pulled out his gun and blasted a hole though the wall. He had escaped, but soon found Bumpers mutilated body. He radioed Kup who raced down the Hallway. "Straxus did this" said Kup "I recognize these wounds. Same thing happened to one of my buddies years ago." Just then, the wall collapsed and the Insecticon let out a terrifying roar. Kup and Tailgate rain away as fast as they could. Then, Tailgate had an idea; BOOMSTICKS! (Boomsticks are one of Wheeljacks rare succesfull inventions) He loaded the launcher and fired it at the Insecticon. Unfourtunately, the Insecticon fell foreward and pinned Tailgate under it's massive mainibles. "HELP!" screamed Tailgate, but before Kup culd pull him out, the Boomstick exploded, killing the Insecticon and Tailgate, but only minor wounds on Kup. Kup then went off to inform the others.

    Alright, I finally figured out the next part of my story, sorry it to so long, aaanywayyy.....

    So Kup began his journey to find the others. Eventually he came across Ultra Magnus, who was battling with a massive Decepticon brute. Kup transformed and drove right into the brute's legs. Kup transformed back into robot, pulled out his musket blaster, and shot the brute right in the head. "Thank you, Kup." said Ultra Magnus. "No problem. These things are like minicons compared to the things I've seen on Omicron Persei VIII, I'll tell ya, the things I saw there....."
