Hey guys, it's ShockSound, and this is my first post. My fanfic is my reimagining of the Bayverse. So its' a new story, but all the same designs. It begins on Cybertron and tells the story from there. So here's my War of the Ages prequel. The Rise of Megatron, Part One. Sentinel Prime looked down to his two children, Optimus and Megatron. He sighed, being promoted to Prime meant there was less time to spend with them. "Sentinel!" Sentinel jolted to attention as Ultra Magnus walked towards him. "I don't recall giving you the order to leave your post. You're a Prime now, you can't just go disobeying orders." "I was only here to see my children, sir, with all this responsibility, I- I never get to see them anymore." Ultra Magnus struck the floor with his hammer. "Enough, Sentinel PRIME, you have an elevated duty now." "But sir-" "But nothing Sentinel. Come, we will leave now. And if I hear one peep out of you, I'll have you demoted!" Sentinel Prime bowed his head. "Yes, Ultra Magnus," He muttered, and followed. -Years later- Megatron walked with his brother Optimus as they rounded the corner to the Iacon main hall. "Father will be so pleased to learn I've mastered flight!" Optimus looked at his excited brother, "Yes, but it's a shame your aim isn't as good." Megatron punched him in the arm, "And what of you, taking a car form? Was this for speed, or to impress that Elita-One girl-" Optimus tackled Megatron mid-sentence. "At least I can talk to a girl, unlike you, who nearly spews Energon." Megatron and Optimus laughed on the stairs, but their laughs were cut short. "ENOUGH!" The hall doors slammed open and Sentinel Prime fell on his back, with Ultra Magnus looking over him. He grabbed him by the neck and pulled him close. "I have had enough of your 'suggestions.' We will not deal with these rebels peacefully! If they wish to follow the Fallen's word, then we shall obliterate them!" "Please Ultra Magnus, not in front of the kids!" Ultra Magnus slammed Sentinel Prime on the stairs again. "NO! Look children, this is what real failure looks like. Your father's vision of peace, will get us all killed. Sentinel, you have been banished, your rank has been stripped. Get out of my sight." Sentinel got up slowly and led grabbed Optimus and Megatron by the shoulder. Megatron glared at Ultra Magnus until he walked back into Iacon Main Hall and slammed the doors behind him. His anger was still there as Sentinel pulled him towards home.
