«……… Ah

Newbuilds wanting to come to Decepticon territory?! Sounded good to Starscream.

«As it so happens, I live in Kaon.» Sorta. Commuted between Kaon and the Nemesis. «I can assure you that, should the newbuilds choose to move here, I would be happy to help you and them visit each other whenever you desire. You could even come join them, if you like.» Worth a shot.

«Promise? I like being with Mother and Father but I want to see other places and when Treadshot leaves, I will not be able to see them if I can not visit.»

«Of course. You have my word. I’ve helped you visit other places before, haven’t I? Kaon is no different.»

He’d take her to see Megatron’s statue. Knowing her, she’d probably be impressed simply by the size of it. He liked to imagine that she’d go home to tell her dear “father” all about how cool it was.

«… Sorry—who is heading toward Decepticon property?»

«Treadshot. He is one of the newbuilds and he said some of them wanted to go to Kaon and Kaon is really far away. I do not want them to leave.»

Leave him alone their comms are like two numbers off.

Either that or Red is tapping Magnus’ lines.

This will not stop Starscream from being indignant.

Nothing stops Starscream from being indignant.

There’s always at least one person whenever I post a G1 joke who doesn’t believe me and thinks I’m making stuff up, or that I’m just taking things out of context to make it strange. To prove that I am not doing that, I decided to draw an entire episode. All of this actually happens, and I didn’t even include Starscream’s amazing skill to create threads out of crunched gold and Rumble’s horrible one-liners.

Sorry for the crappy drawings, I didn’t want to add shadows and lights because I’ve been spending way too much time on this anyway.

This is the G1 Season 2 episode “A Decepticon raider in King Arthur’s Court” and it’s one of the most glorious episodes of anything ever. Go watch it if you don’t believe me.

Wholly accurate; legitimately one of my favourite G1 episodes.

The best part of this is the fact that the most ridiculous lines in this comic are directly from the episode.

Yes. The dragon was actually visiting relatives.

::You have reached the correct comm line. This is Red Alert, security director of the Lost Light. I am currently off ship, but if you wish to submit your request I can have it processed upon my return. If it is pressing, then you will want to talk with Trailcutter. He is the current, acting, security director.::

«Red Alert? I was informed that this comm line would go to Ultra Magnus.» Harrumph. Thanks, TC. Well, if Red Alert was cleared to do the same thing… «I need my request cleared by next… Monday, I believe is when your movie nights are held? If you aren’t able to process it by then, then give me Trailcutter’s comm line.»

::You can also turn the proper forms in to Ultra Magnus, but they will eventually go through me. It’s simply part of procedure.:: Red Alert explained. Wow, the mecha sounded upset. Well, it was just one more mecha who obviously disliked him. That was nothing new.

::I cannot give you a proper ETA for when it will be processed if you turned it in to me. I hardly see that as an emergency, but if you insist I will give you Trailcutter’s comm line.:: He followed it with a ping a moment later.

Starscream didn’t care about who was on the other end so much as he cared about the fact that the person on the other end wasn’t the person he was told it would be.

«Fine. I’ll bother him then.»

TC had promised Starscream that he’d be getting Ultra Magnus, who would be almost guaranteed to authorize his pass since there weren’t any rules against it. But he hadn’t even reached Ultra Magnus, and now he was being shoved off onto a third party? This didn’t bode well. Maybe he should just quit now before they gave him the bureaucratic runaround and made a complete fool of him.

maverickofmayhem inquired: ::Would you be willin' t' fill out a visitor's pass for th' Lost Light that keeps having anime night? So they can't make stupid rules on how you're not allowed t' go just because you're Starscream an' we can watch movies together.::

«If they’re making up arbitrary rules about whether or not I can come based solely on my name, then why should I degrade myself by begging for permission via paperwork to attend?

::An’ also Magnus is th’ one that’ll approve th’ paperwork, an’ if it’s correct he can’t deny you based on personal opinion. That’s against th’ rules.::

Mostly the first reason.

Eugh. Ultra Magnus. But Ultra Magnus wasn’t the one who had initially denied him, and he did have quite a reputation as a stickler for rules…

And Starscream did so love imagining the look on Rodimus’s face if Starscream were to waltz in and sit down and Rodimus couldn’t do a thing about it.

«… You’re absolutely certain that Ultra Magnus would approve the application?»

::Certain? Nah. But I know he won’t arbitrarily deny it just ‘cos you’re you. Better than I can say for Rodimus.::

A little excited, unseen wiggle. ::You’re gonna do it? :: Please say yes. He’s really kind of looking forward to ignoring movies with you. ::

Annoyed sigh. «Fine. I’ll do it. For you. … So if this goes badly, it’s your fault.» Way to ruin what was almost a sweet statement, Starscream. «What’s that Magnus’s comm frequency?»

::Rodger!:: TC can accept that. They had what, a fifty percent chance of this actually working? He was good with those odds. ::Besides, if it goes badly, I’ll make it up to you. ::

::It’s this!:: Hopefully Starscream will be reasonably polite?

Starscream’s expecting like 95% odds, u misled him. «I’m sure it will go perfectly fine. I’ll let you know what he says.»

«Oh? When did this happen?»

bevelledconstruction:

«A little bit ago to help my balance.»

«To help your—?»

«Ah. door wings, I take it?» Usually Starscream thought the things looked silly and kinda tacky. But no way was he saying that to his #1 fan. If she had door wings, then they were the best door wings on Cybertron.
