Introduction Ok, so for a while I've been wanting to write my own fiction of Transformers, so I've decided to start now. Basically, this is set in the G1 Universe, and the story so far is that the Decepticons have been defeated, and sent out and have been outcast from Earth and Cybertron and it's moon's. If they are to be spotted within their restraint areas, they are to be shot on sight. The 'Cons now reside in the burnt-out world of Chaar. Uprising Part 1 "Starscream, Thundercracker, Skywarp, search Alpha B for any signs of available energon mines. The Decepticons are in dire need of resources!" ordered Megatron, sounding even more desperate as the cycles passed by. He sat on a makeshift throne, surrounded by his most faithful and trusted allies, namely the deadly assassin, Sixshot. Starscream growled, "Why must we waste our scarce resources on vain attempts to scour for energon?" "Silence, fool, do as I command, or face a similar fate to those Combaticons that previously rebelled!" Megatron smirked and looked at his throne. Starscream realized what it was actually made of, he could just make out the mangled face of Swindle and Brawl's turret. "Yes... my liege...", Starscream said pitifully, and transformed and took off with his loyal Seekers. "Lord Megatron, I have detected an Autobot broadcast again." explained the monotonous voice of Soundwave. "What is it now, Soundwave? You detect these broadcasts, but we are forced to stay here and listen to our mortal foes carry out their missions, yet we are helpless to stop them!" shouted Megatron. "Apologies, my Lord, but the Autobots have planned a mission to return to Earth and stop a political squabble." began Soundwave. "Pathetic organics, siding with those weak Autobots, through fear that they may turn on them. I will show them, and they will pay for what they have done to our Decepticon cause." said Megatron, his eyes flaring with anger. At that moment, Starscream flew in, sounding like an excited child opening up a new toy; "Megatron... Sir! We have found an abundance of energon, and it has a high percentage of pure energy, this could be what helps the Decepticons rise to power!" Megatron looked up, smiling like a devil, he put on his Fusion Cannon, and said; "Take me there. Now." Meanwhile... "Optimus Prime, Sir, all systems are ready for take off, are you sure that we must intervene once again with the humans, struggling over this, 'oil'?" complained Cliffjumper. "Yes, Cliffjumper, it is our part of the agreement with the humans, they help us defeat the Decepticons and fuel our missions, while we help defend Earth and prevent any more wars. You've seen what war has done to Cybertron in the past, I cannot let that happen to Earth, not while I stay Leader of the Autobots." replied Optimus, "Commence take off, Prowl." Prowl, Sideswipe and Ironhide, controlling the flight controls, effortlessly turned on systems and commenced take-off, it was like they had done it a million times. Outside, Ultra Magnus and Kup, two other Generals, had saluted, while the other robots of the Elite Guard cheered behind them. The Ark had taken off. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ That was just a 'taster' of what's to come later.
