    Transformers Cracked Glass is a new TF fanfic I'll post here on a bi-daily basis.
    The world it sets in is a Shattered-Glass- esque universe, except Autobots are still Autobots and the Decepticons are still evil. The characters are simply different. For example, Optimus is much more harsh/brutal. Also, the fiction takes elements from a number of different continuities, but essentially, it takes place in a whole new universe (That just so happens to resemble WFC :p )
    Without further ado, there we get started.

    My name is Springer. I am an Autobot, but not of choice. I never asked for involvement in this war, but when it was time to choose your side, I chose the one that doesn't force you into the battlefield. Hell, if I had the freedom of choice, I'd wind up rogue and executed, like Starscream.
    Today is the day I've been waiting ages for. A chance to meet Optimus Prime. "Sentient beings" and all that crap. I really don't know where this war might take me, physically and mentally, but I'm glad I chose the winning side. I just wanna go back to Tyger Pax, and live my life. But I know that'll never happen. This war will end up ruining Cybertron, and there's no way to stop it.
    I walk through the beautifully built city of Iacon. Skyscrapers and amazing structures everywhere. Back on Tyger Pax I would dream about amazing things like this. Four Autobot guards grab hold of me, giving me directions to Optimus Prime's room. It's at the top floor. I start speed-walking with anticipation for the view above.
    The elevator is astounding. Speed like I've never experienced before, made of some clear material to see the outside.
    I reach the top floor. I hold my breath as I look beyond the glass. My jaw drops. I am above the world. Above everything. After several minutes, I'm being called in. It's hard to say goodbye to this view, but I guess I'll have to live with it.
    Optimus Prime's office. Just as I pictured it, the defenition of wealth. He is clearly not living a life of constanst worries and war.
    "Springer," Optimus greets me "Welcome."
    I bow, looking rediculous "Uh, thank you, Optimus Prime." I say with a crack in my voice
    "No need to feel restrained" he offers me a seat "My comrades and I are here to make sure everything is under control."
    "Good to know that, sir." I smile
    "Now, of course, there's a reason I called you here, Springer." he says with a calm, smooth voice
    "Of course, sir." I smile for a second, then turn that smile into a frown "No one gets invited all the way to Iacon just for some hospitality."
    "Springer, this is war. As safe as you may have felt in your prescious village, this city is at risk every single moment." he says
    "Alright, Optimus." I nod "I'm listening"
    "We got your files. Says you've done excellent in training." he passes my files to me "That's a pleasent surprise." I say, smiling "But those tests were plenty of cycles ago. I'm not really intp fighting for this war." I pass the files back to Optimus
    "We need capable fighters such as yourself, Springer." Optimus says "I'll give you a while to change your mind. Think about it."
    "I will." I say with all seriousness. I stand up, as a number of Autobot guards escort me to the door "What the hell is that?" I whisper at the sight of a Decepticon warship hovering above the city "Take cover!" I shout as a missile launches towards us. Luckily, it explodes on a pillar, leaving us in one piece "Run!" Optimus orders. One of the things I learned during my time in the war, is that Primes will always remain one-hundred-percent calm, never show emotions, and never flee the battlefield. Optimus Prime has just broken those three rules in one second. Unintentional, perhaps, but Optimus is now transferred to the bottom of my respect list. We start sprinting towards the elevator. As we enter it, a Decepticon jet is depleted from the warship, and is speeding towards us "Autobot superiors. Megatron will enjoy hearing the mighty Optimus Prime has been extinguished." The treacherous Decepticon unsheathes a blade, and slices the elevator exterior open. He slowly walkes towards us, preparing his blade for contact with out Energon. He raises his blade. Now, it is to think fast, or not think at all. I instinctively raise my blaster at the elevator power source, and fire. The elevator stops in a split second, sending the Decepticon Seeker crashing into the ceiling. The elevator then begins free-falling. Since we were so high up, the elevator picked up a lot of momentum. We were almost hovering. The elevator descends, until it hits the ground. I slowly lose consciousness.
    "Springer! Wake up!" I wake up at the sound of a battlefield semolishing the city "Get up! We need to get moving!" the voice of Optimus Prime was never so irritating "Get up!" it takes me several seconds to become aware of what he's ordering me. I jump onto my feet, my casket hurts from the sound of gunfire. Optimus and I navigate the ruins and alleys, energon is everywhere. I should have known this would happen. Nothing can ever go right in my life. It has to be me.
    "Springer, you need a weapon. Here." Optimus hands me his plasma cannon "I can't have this;" I say while adjusting it on my hand "You don't have any weapons yourself." I return the cannon to him
    "Springer," Optimus kneels, very uncommon for a Prime "I am tired of war. The Autobot capital, conquered. We lost the war. But you, you're young; you can live through this. Take the weapon." he seals it on my arm "I'll follow closly behind."
    We walk silently through the demolished city. It hurts to see it like this. Yet, I feel somewhat honored. A Prime gave me his weapon; if that's not a gesture of respect, nothing is.
    There we are, at the gates of Iacon. Once we leave the capital, we are at Primus' mercy. There is a long desert of rust in our way to Tarn, where we and the other survivors will regroup.
    We cross the deady rust desert, filled with savage beasts. Since we're most likely to encounter a Driller, we cover ourselves in Energon to cover our heat. I offer Optimus to travel through air, with my alternate mode being a propelled-jet, but he insists that is more dangerous than walking. I do not argue with him. About 100 kliks pass, and still no sign of civilization. My optics widen at the sight of a tall building. I turn to Optimus, who begins to speak "Tarn." he said "I never thought we'd be here."
    I hasitate for a few nanocycles, and reply with a stiff "Why?"
    "This place is Cybertron's third class." he explains "A Prime is not allowed to access a place like this."
    "Pretty unfair if you ask me." I chuckle
    "Well, if thing were fair," at that point of the sentence my smile instantly fades "There wouldn't be a war for Cybertron."
    "Long live the Autobots!" echo the voices of the Autobots who managed to escape the Iacon slaughter. It doesn't require more than a bit to identify, they're not many. The gates open in a tormenting screeching sound. I clutch my hands into fists as I lay optics on the defensless Autobots.
    That's when I realize,
    My name is Springer, and I am an Autobot of choice. I never asked for any involvement in this war, but now, I'm just as caught up in it as anyone.

    I take my seat alongside Optimus "We have an important Autobot coming to discuss the situation with us. He should be here any-" Optimus cuts the sentence as the blue Autobot enters the room "Springer," Optimus introduces "Allow me to introduce-"
    "Ultra Magnus." I interrupt.
    Ultra Magnus is the last person you'd hear of. Just like the great Optimus Prime, Magnus started out as a simple archivist. It was his leadership skills that led him to become such a known figure.
    "It is an honor, Ultra Magnus." I shake his hand "So you're Springer." he says with what is probably the most serious expression I've ever seen "The pleasure is all mine."
    We sit, and commence the conversation. I suddenly get a burst of confusion "Wait, why am I here?" I ask "Springer," Optimus says "Within our period of knowing each other, you seem like the best choice to share this knowledge with."
    "Alright." I secretly smile by embarrassment.
    "So, for all we know, the Decepticons currently assume control of 3 major cities." Optimus begins "Iacon," he says
    "Kaon," Magnus continues
    "And the orbital city of Trypticon." I conclude.
    "We don't have enough Aerialbots for an air-assault, so Trypticon's out." Magnus crosses out Trypticon on the map "And Iacon is where the Decepticon chain of command is." he says
    "So Kaon it is." I nod
    "Kaon seems to be the safest place to launch an attack." Optimus approves "If we can get one group to draw Decepticon fire to the left," he projects a hologram of the city, and marks primary locations "We can take a small group, say of 5, to infiltrate the city through the empty Energon pipes. If that works, we'll have direct access to the main control room." Optimus gestures for Ultra Magnus to proceed "That's when we can activate the emergency alarm. They'll evacuate, and we can send in the whole troop to take control. At that point, the Decepticons are hopeless."
    "Long live the Autobots!" we nod and each leaves to his quarters.
    A solar cycle passed, and I grow more worried by the minute. When the attack begins, there will be no turning back. No saving what is lost. And hell, there will be loss. And a lotof it.
    We begin preparing for the operation. I stare at the arsenal of weapons, passing my eyes through them. For this mission, I'll need a weapon that is silent. I pick the plasma rifle Optimus gave me, use my propellers to screw the magazine out, and plug a silencer in. Then, I screw a pack of laser ammo inside. This rifle I call 'The Spring.'.
    "Is everyone ready for departure?" Optimus asks "Ready!" the Autobots say in flawless unison. We each transform and begin the siege.

    "Kaon ahead!" shouts Magnus "Understood!" Optimus replies "Team A! Take position!" he orders "Make us proud, guys!" I shout. They don't even respond, as I seem to have forgotten my place in the chain of command.
    We wait for almost a nanoklik, and fire is heard. We take to the Energon tunnels.
    The feeling in the nonoperational Energon pumps is indescribable. The tingling feels like years of rusting, and the pressure is like being smashed under a building. Suddenly, I hear a strange noise "Prime, are you hearing this?" I mumble
    "Hear what?" Optimus asks with confusion. I do not continue talking, as the sound is too hard to define. It is something between a beeping noise and a scream.
    "It's getting louder." I whisper. Once again, the others see me with a confused eye. Frustrated, I shut my optics as the sound instantly becomes unbearably loud. I shriek in pain "Springer, what's wrong!?" Optimus launches my way, catching me from a fall. The sound slowly grows more quiet "I don't really know..." I say, getting back on my feet "But it doesn't matter. I guess it was too much Energon. Let's keep going, we're losing our window."
    We continue maneuvering through the length of the seemingly endless tunnel, until we reach the Decepticon guard tower. Empty, just as planned.
    "Okay, phase two, we need to head to the control tower, jam the alert," Ultra Magnus begins
    "And watch the Decepticons disappear like nothing." I continue "It's only a matter of time. The Autobots aren't taken down that easily!" I gloat, as the gate opens, revealing the three highest-ranked Decepticons: Megatron, the Decepticon leader, Shockwave, Megatron's second-in-command, and finally, Soundwave, the military mind.
    "Crap." I gulp, knowing that the whole plan we made led to a brilliant Decepticon plan
    "Megatron." Optimus steps forward, revealing his blades "No place for running. It ends here."
    Megatron shakes his head in disappointment "Again with this heroic nonsense, Optimus Prime?" he walks forth "I've been asking for eons to finish this battle without having to terminate each other." he pulls his axes out "But if you don't understand diplomacy, let's try it your way!"
    Megatron charges at Optimus, who swipes his leg, knocking Megatron down. At that point, it's too hard to realize what's going on as Shockwave grabs me by the back of my head "Let go!" I shout "You asked for it!" he throws me at the wall. I crash into it, losing feeling in my limbs. I can barely mumble anything, yet as Shockwave aims his fusion cannon straight at me, I manage a few words "Look. Behind. You..." I whisper. The purple-colored brute looks behind, as Megatron is tossed by Optimus right onto him. Shockwave does not get back up. Neither do I. I see no reason to, after all, it's not my fight. I look to my left, towards the damaged Megatron. He gets back up, only to be kicked in the torso by Optimus launching him straight back onto the ground. Optimus sheathes his blade, and releases a hammer. He lifts his arm in the air.
    This is a side of Optimus Prime I have never seen before; the side that reveals to me Optimus is truly concerned for the fate of his Autobots. Or maybe it's something else? Maybe it's Optimus' rage, his ambition to end the war for Cybertron once and for all, by any means necessary? I guess I'll find out in a moment.
    Optimus hesitates "Are you trying to torture me?" Megatron cries "Finish it!" Optimus does not show a sign of regret as he drops the massive hammer at Megatron's head, dispatching it from the rest of his body. The remaining Decepticons flee at once.
    I look at Optimus desperately. When he looks back, I shake my head.

    What was Optimus trying to prove by taking Megatron down without hesitation? Was it to try and send a message to the Decepticons, that the war is already won? Well, it doesn't matter. We have their capital and they have ours.
    Magnus enters the room "So," he says awkwardly as he sits by me "Quite a show Prime held back there, huh?"
    I lower my head in what appears to be a hybrid between disappointment and shame "Why?" I barely manage to get the word out "Why would Optimus just end it in a nanoklik?"
    "You're saying Megatron didn't deserve it?"
    "No, he deserved it like hell. But when Megatron asked forgiveness-"
    "Forgiveness?" he interrupted "He was asking for Prime to turn his back on him. But our Optimus was too smart for that."
    I do not reply. Magnus is blind, and apparently, so is Optimus.
    I leave the room.

    "Springer!" I hear a shout from across the Decepticon embassy building. I rush to the massive hologram room. Before identifying much of the holograms displayed, I can already analyze what's going on. And with Optimus' words "It appears as though the Decepticons have planned an operation to send in troops from Trypticon." he confirms it.
    Trypticon is, and always was, a city located in high orbit. When the Decepticons were formed by a rogue Prime, the first thing they did was take control of the army of Protoforms in Stasis up there. That was one of the Autobots' worst threat.
    But now that we have taken the communication array captive, we can make sure it won't come to that.
    I look around the area. The interactive holograms allow for locating near and distant solar systems. I locate Trypticon.
    Being a secure Decepticon facility, it contains an insane array of information on literally, everything.
    I look through the archives about Trypticon, and come through a piece of information that leads my body numb.
    "Optimus, Magnus, come see this, now." I point at the paragraph
    "The Decepticons weren't planning to send troops from Trypticon-" Optimus begins, and I continue "They were planning to send Trypticon here..."
    "Close call." I say after a moment of silence
    "Too close." Optimus replies "As much as another cycle of hesitation could have cost us many lives."
    "But the question still stands," Magnus declared "What were they planning to do when the ship arrives?" he secretly pointed the question at Optimus.
    The Prime was speechless. He didn't look like the Optimus Prime who terminated Megatron at sight. He looks at me and begins: "There are many things a Prime cannot reveal to the lesser. But what I tell you now, is forgivable."
    I look at Magnus in confusion.
    "Trypticon was once a part of Cybertron. A Cybertronian, to be exact." Magnus and I gasp to the words. Trypticon, a vessel in the size of a city, transforming? That is a sight of death.
    "When the great was started, Trypticon was the first thing the Decepticons claimed. He was in stasis, and did not put up a fight. They force-scanned the Decepticon warship as Trypticon's alternate mode, and tortured him into transformation. They managed to store countless troops on Trypticon. And if they're planning to get him back to life, Cybertron is doomed."
    I nod "But now that we have Kaon, they can't. Right?"
    Optimus turns to face the window "True." he lowers his head "But that could also be translated into a reason to get Kaon back in their hands. And when that happens," he shakes his head "We won't have any city to claim."
    "Hey, Optimus!" a trooper seems very eager to show Optimus something
    "Yes?" Optimus asked
    "Autobot scout 119, Prowl, reporting for duty."
    "What is it, Prowl?" Optimus almost smiles at Prowl's childish excitement. Almost.
    "See, I wanted to test a shortcut to my quarters. So, I walk past the medical bay,"
    "Wait, this place has a medical bay?" Magnus asks cautiously
    "Not the point." Prowl chuckles "Anyway, so when I got past it, I heard a noise coming from a small room. And when I open the gate, what do I find?" he pulls a device with live footage of Iacon playing "Bam! A spying device!"
    I smile uncontrollably "They had a spying device in Iacon!" my smile quickly disappears once I realize what I said "That means..."
    "They had tactical superiority on us the whole time." Magnus says desperately
    "No," I struggle to defeat the rage inside of me "That means they knew about our plan."
    We hear a massive shrieking noise from outdoors. We look through the window.
    Trypticon is being awakened.

    My optics shrink at the purple light, the vibration smashing through the window. I drop on my back because of the pulse. Magus is no where to be seen.
    "Springer, get up!" Optimus shouts as I look at my leaking Energon "We need to get moving!"
    I get up, shaking the rusted metal off me. My blaster slides out by itself. Must be broken.
    A number of Decepticon jet troopers are flying towards me. Optimus lets out his blades, and as the Decepticons charge at him, he manages to kill them all with one swipe. I can't even look at that.
    Suddenly, the dozen troopers that were on their way to us retreat back to Trypticon. They support him as he crash-lands into the ground, creating a massive crater. From that crater, comes out a gigantic hand, followed by a repulsing lizard head. Trypticon was a Cybertronian, and hell, what a big one.
    Optimus begins retreating "What in Primus' name are you doing?" I shout as I grab his shoulder.
    He pushes me away, then pulles me forward "There's no chance for fighting Trypticon!" he transforms, and I follow. What chance do I have alone?
    "He'll make his way to the city! He'll kill the rest!" I beg, but to no avail. Optimus does not even stop as he ignores me with "Evacuation order will be sent as we arrive at the bottom floor!"
    I wonder to myself "Bottom floor..."
    I take a hard right, pushing for a shattered window "Springer!" Optimus does not even stop "What are you thinking!?"
    I smile "A shortcut to the bottom floor!" I transform as I jump out the window.
    I realize I may have not thought this through.
    I look for a way to decelerate or break the fall. I reach floor 112, 100, 73, and soon 29. I brace for impact, shutting my eyes and preparing to join the Allspark to the eternal stasis.
    I feel a push of gravity sending me upwards. It's Magnus. He somehow was there.
    We both land, dragged across the ground. I grunt in relief.

    "Magnus, what happened to you?" I say sarcastically "Please, this is nothing compared to what they made us do in the Wreckers."
    Ah, yes. The Wreckers. My kind called then heroes, I called them assassins. But still, as sugar-coated as it is, that's exactly what they were. Bounty hunters assigned to murder specific targets, no matter how.

    "Well, where's Prime?" he asks me. I shake my head in disbelief. What I suspected for quite a while has just gone to the next step. Optimus doesn't care about anyone. Not himself, not us, and absolutely not Cybertron. At least not the one he's supposedly fighting for as we speak.
    "Uh, Cybertron to Springer!" Magnus shakes his hand in front of my face.
    Should I tell him? Oh no. That'll risk the lives of my faction. Prime could get me exiled, or... Worse.
    I get up "No time to lose. Let's get inside and push the evacuation button!" I smile, knowing how close I am to gaining more time for the Autobots to get out. We may just have a chance against Trypticon.
    We may just win.

    I stumble towards the control panel inside of the Kaon administry. As I approach it, I ponder weather it's truly the right choice, or Optimus was right, and our darkest hour is truly here. Is it really every Autobot for himself at this point?
    I hesitate before finally pressing the large, red button, sounding the alarm. The city is bursting within the nanocycle. The sound of crying Autobots and panic were heard even from the outskirts.

    I nod to myself, determined I made the right choice. I witness Optimus arriving at the bottom floor.
    "Springer, what were you thinking?" he said. He actually looks worried about me.
    "I was thinking I'd get down quickly enough." I smile "It worked, didn't it?
    Unfortunately, Optimus is not as thrilled "If Ultra Magnus wasn't there, where would you be?"
    "But Magnus was there!" I argue, when my mind lights up with thought "Magnus!"
    I look behind me, noticing the crawling Magnus. I rush to him "Magnus, are you alright?" I ask desperately.
    "N... No." He replies with effort "Excellent job on getting the evac order." he starts leaking Energon from his mouth "Now get them to a place Trypticon won't... Find them." his Optics begin fading "The... Sea..." he shuts down.

    The sea?
    As a Cybertronian who spent most of his time in a village, who lived a small life, I would never recognise something as general as 'The Sea'. I head up the tower, practically suicide, concidering Trypticon is just around the corner, and enter the holographic chamber.

    "Search locations." I order the Artificial Intelligence
    "Teletran 1, operational. Opening Decepticon mainframe. Enter location." the AI responds.
    "Sea." I shake my head, praying to Primus that the search works successful by the slightest.
    "Location found." I sigh in relief.
    I read some of the information.

    Apparently, the Sea of Rust is a barren wasteland, after an accident that occured back during the dawn of war.
    Back when the war started, Megatron was still an inexperienced brute, and Optimus was the same. Both battled with the most sadistic of means. But one weapon was by far the most deadly.
    The Cosmic Rust Cannon. That cannon was able to obliterate any metal it touches, by turning it into rust.
    One day, Megatron decided he would destroy the entire Autobot army by infusing the Cosmic Rust Cannon with one of the massive Fusion Cannons they possess on Kaon. The attempt ultimately led to faliure, when the cannon could not triangulate Iacon's exact location. Instead, it targeted a small, nameless city instead. That city was consumed by rust.
    From that day forward, it became the Sea of Rust.
    That's where Magnus told me to take the Autobots. It's a massive desert. Trypticon can't move as fast as us, there's no chance he'll manage to track us down.

    But now that I'm here, inside the Decepticon's command, I need to take out and pick up as much as possible.
    "Teletran 1, is it possible to perform transfer to a mobile storage device?" I ask
    "Decepticon access code required."
    I think to myself, what could the Decepticons place as their access code? Suddenly, the entire chamber shakes, pieces of the ceiling begin to crumble. My thinking begins to corrupt by the thoughts of Trypticon tearing through the building this very moment. I smile as I remember Megatron's moto
    "Peace through tyrany." I say confidently.
    "Access granted." Teletran 1 confirms "Teletran 1 requires a very large amount of storage. It can be moved either to a storage memory unit, accessibly within floor 43, or inside of one's own storage unit, given they have enough space."
    Luckily, I have never stored anything inside my own storage unit. On Tyger Pax, Iacon supplied us with a lifetime supply of storage within our homes.
    "Transfer Teletran 1 into Autobot Trooper number 3566, Springer's storage unit." I order
    "Decepticon access code required"
    "Peace through tyrany."

    Now I have one of the Decepticons' most valuable assets. Teletran 1.
    But a second idea pops into my head.
    I press the 'Eject' button on my storage unit, located on my wrist.
    "Teletran 1, Where is the Cosmic Rust Cannon located?" I ask, as half of the ceiling collapses in the far side of the chamber. I gasp as I see the massive, reptile-like head peeking at me from above.
    "Weakling." he taunts.
    I immediately turn to the opposite direction and begin running towards the exit. Transforming would take too long. Trypticon growls.

    "Teletran 1, where is the damn cannon?" I raise my voice.
    "Still located on the cannon deck, as a memorial."
    "Thanks." I say as I dodge Trypticon's massive fist. It tears a hole in the ground, and the building begins collapsing on itself.
    I moan "So much for the cannon."
    I transform into my jet mode and begin speeding to the elevator, avoiding debris as I try to maneuver the long halls.
    Finally I see the elevator dead-ahead, only to find Trypticon's horrifying face behind the windows to my left. I break before Trypticon smashes the corridor, once again creating a vacuum-like spot in the building.
    "Nowhere left to run, Autobot." Trypticon nods in what appears to be satisfaction.
    "I wouldn't say... Nowhere." I smile. Trypticon tilts his head in confusion, before becoming stunned, understanding what I meant. I begin rushing towards the dent in the floor, leading, once again, to a fatal fall.

    "Teletran 1, I need analysis on what I'm about to do." I shake my head as I take several steps back, picking up momentum.
    "21% chance of survival."
    I sigh "Well, that's just perfect."
    I begin running towards certain decease, jumping just before Trypticon smashes the entire storey to oblivion. I transform, flying graciously as I avoid debris.
    "Not this time!" Trypticon roars, and hits me with his massive hand, sending me crashing into the side of the building.
    "You're lucky Optimus Prime has run off into nowhere. If he was here, you'd be no better than Ultra Magnus." He says, and picks me up rather gently.

    After several cycles of being bound within Trypticon's alternate mode, the hatch opens, revealing a red and grey Decepticon. I slowly begin to recognize him from the holoroom.
    "S... Starscream?" I fear that I may have lost my senses, "You're supposed to be dead."
    "Trust me, Autobot, stick with that reaction and you'll come up with it a lot." Starscream replies as he unties and cuffs my wrists and ankles.
    "I don't like where this is going..." I think.
    As we arrive at the elevator, it takes us to the top floor. Great, more height.
    As the elevator opens, my optics close instinctively as I realize I was right.
    Standing in front of me with a devilish smile is no other than Megatron.

    "Primus." I whisper.
    "Do not worry, Autobot. You'll meet Primus in person soon enough." Megatron grins at me. A jet comes down from above and transforms into a robot mode in spactacular fashion.
    "Well well. If it isn't the Autobot who I so fortunately met at the elevator the other cycle..." The jet says with a smile.
    "What's going on?" I look around me at the shadowy figures, "Optimus smashed the life right out of you, Megatron! You're supposed to be dead!"
    "Again with that rediculous attitude?" Starscream bursts in, "Clearly our... Magnificant lord is still alive. And well, if I may-" Megatron slaps Starscream to the ground before he can finish.
    "I do not require evaluation, backstabbing pest!" Megatron kicks Starscream's head before he could get up, sending him straight back on the filthy floor.

    "Please ignore our housekeeping, Autobot." Megatron orders his guards with a movement of two fingers to take me and follow him, "They tend to be rather irritating... But as you can see," He points at Starscream, "We are easily capable of shutting such irritations up."

    We arrive in a rather large room, which I assume is Megatron's quarters.
    "In reguards to your question," Megatron begins, "It wasn't even difficult hiding the truth from your Prime. I just had to make his job easier for him, and that was enough."
    I frown, "Optimus will stop you." I say calmly.
    "Such heroic nonsense." Megatron laughs diabolically, "And with Trypticon and the army he possesses, who do you think you are to stop me?"
    I do not reply, and after several kliks, Megatron gets up, "Well, that was pleasent. Enjoy your stay here. It will not be a short one." He leaves the room.

    I ask myself this question every so often: How did it all begin?
    Often I come up with the same conclusion, that while I was living my life at my safe village, I was unaware that the war was always there.
    I look around the room for any sort of security. When I come up with none, I sit on a chair and lay my finger on my storage unit.
    "Tran, I need information about the war." I say quietly.
    "Can you be more specific?" Teletran 1 replies, "There is a lot of data."
    "The origin."
    "Affirmative."

    The war for Cybertron began during the fourth age as a result of Megatron rising to power.
    Megatron was a gladiator fighting in the Pits of Kaon. He conveyed his political ideas by fighting.
    Megatron had many followers, whom, with time, transformed into a terrorist group.
    Not long passed before Megatron realized the political figure he is, and turned his back on fighting for entertainment for his true destiny: becoming a leader.
    Meanwhile, in Iacon, and archivist named Orion Pax also realized his potential, and entered the route to politics.
    Several eons later, Megatron was already at the top of publc interest.
    Everyone wanted to learn what brought Megatron to success.
    Yet, there was only one Cybertronian whom Megatron wished to teach.
    Orion Pax.


    That's all I get to read before I hear footsteps outside. I quickly shut down the AI and act bored.
    My mind is crawling with thoughts about what I just encountered, craving to have more.
    The door opens, and Megatron enters, enraged by something.
    "Come on, Autobots, we're going for a walk." He growls.
    "A walk... To where?" I prepare the Plasma Cannon Optimus gave me so long ago. Fortunately, the Decepticons never expected me to carry it, so they didn't search for heavy weapons as they disarmed me.
    "We're taking a walk to the execution section."

    Great story, I liked how you how Springer mentioned that he didn't asked to be in the war but was glad he was on the winning side.

    Well, not to spoil, but Trypticon IS a Decepticon vessel.
    I will update soon. If I have time, maybe even this hour.

    Well, it isn't MurderPrime we're talking about, so just because it's a light shattered glass story, don't think he'll go destroying Cybertron to kill Deceptichops.
    But he certainly will be more ruthless.
