"Whatever you say, Kickback, Kickback... it's all our fault, isn't it, it?" Shrapnel told the other Insecticon with a harsh barking laugh, battle not giving him much opportunity to form longer sentences. "We fix our mistake now, then, then."

So, Astrotrain, Soundwave and Gigatron were trying to settle it quietly? And they screwed it up? Well, damn. Regret won't do a thing about it, though, so like all good Decepticons Shrapnel simply put aside any guilt he might feel for being a catalyst in this particular mess.

Shrapnel charged at Megatron's arm, the one holding the gun, and transformed into beetle mode, shrinking again as he did so. He engulfed himself in electricity as he landed on the elbow joint, and began trying to chew through the hard ceramic metal, whilst hoping that the electrical energy would help to blow the joint apart.

"YEAH! How d'ya like that, Buckethead?" Bonecrusher whooped as his drill slammed onto Megatron. Bonecrusher proceeded to pull out his missile launcher, aimed and fired. "C'mon, Scavenger! Let's send this murderer straight to hell!"
__________________________________________

"Least Starscream's constant betrayals are good for something..." Bombshell told Soundwave. "Ol' Buckethead's too focused on him." When Starscream was thrown towards that direction, Bombshell shook his head. "Shrapnel, you idiot..."

The Insecticon got down on four, transforming and shrinking into beetle mode and scuttled away like the bug he is, narrowly avoiding being crushed by Starscream.

Unfurling his wings, Bombshell took into the air and landed on Soundwave's shoulder. "Bloody squids. Even with them dead they are still causing all sorts of trouble for us."
__________________________________________

Tinker nodded at Starscream, and had the presence of mind to copy Soundwavew and Bombshell as they moved away from what clearly is the target of Megatron's rage. "Whatever you say, Commander." Tinker muttered, unconsciously using Starscream's old rank.

He did, however, raise his arms and open fire at Megatron.

"Heh." Starscream paused, observing all the Decepticons engaging Megatron and actually helping him. But, then again, this was not the real Megatron, although the raw hatred it was displaying must surely prove its kernal programme was taken from the original.

I wonder if Megatron is still functional in some way, somewhere? he speculated, readying his weapons and waiting for an opening. I should worry, but the prize is too sweet to resist...

Hook opened fire with his laser pistol, cutting a shot between his brothers Bonecrusher and Scavenger, hoping to hit the fiery mech in one optic or, at the very least, put a hole in his facial plating.

~~~

Relay stopped dead, flicking his recorder from it's cover in his left shoulder.

"I am standing in a Darkmount corridor where a battle appears to be raging. I can hear shooting and there are flashes - flickering, like fire. Soundwave..."

He stopped.

Zephyr led Fumarole and Heatstroke towards where all the commotion was. "What d'ya think it is? Autobots? Gigatron?" Zephyr asked, almost bored now that they were out of Kaon.

Fumarole snorted. Zephyr had stuck around with their group, so he had considered him Gust's replacement of sorts... but so far Zephyr had been aloof.

"BURN THE ENEMY YES." Heatstroke hissed, optics burning with an unnatural flame.

"He always like that?" Zephyr asked Fumarole. "That voice is creepy."

Fumarole grimaced and shrugged as the three Seekers rounded the corner. Why the heck was he paired with a bunch of- He saw Relay in front of them. "Hey. I know you." Fumarole began. "Yer that reporterbot from Kaon, the one the others were with!"

"BURN AUTOBOT?" Heatstroke asked, raising his flamethrower.

"Oh, hush." Zephyr said, raising an arm lazily, barring Heatstroke's path. "Ignore the idiot. What's happening?"

Scavenger transformed and used his shovel to emit sonic charges into the ground.

"I reckon if I increase the amplitude I can recreate intense low-frequency groundwaves like Rumble and fingers crossed here goes nothing."

"Y'can do that, Scrounge?" Bonecrusher asked Scavenger, optics widening slightly. "Yeh, y'do that. I'mma gonna use my fists to help ya break th' ground."

Blackjack had found a perch on one of the overhanging cupboards and took aim with his steel card launchers and aimed to hit Megatron's optics.

Scavenger concentrated

"theoretically it should work, I usually use sound waves for detection but I |think it should work."

Kickback joined Shrapnel in chewing, hoping that the two of them would be able to disable Megatron's arm before he swatted them like...well, like insects.
__________________________________________

"Octopunch and Tentakil aren't..." Soundwave trailed off. "Ah. You meant the Quintessons. Yes, cleaning up their messes have become quite tiresome. But all that aside, since Megatron is notably preoccupied with him and Starscream is still somewhat...overmatched, maybe we should help him out some."

He shooed Bombshell off of his shoulder -- Why does everyone try to sit there? he wondered fleetingly -- then squared himself up at Megatron and fired the entire contents of his shoulder-mounted multimissile launcher at the Decepticon leader's face.
__________________________________________

Scrapper joined with his fellow Constructicons, firing on Megatron with a vengeance.
__________________________________________

"Yo, new guys!" Ramjet shouted at Zephyr, Relay and the rest of the Kaonites that he vaguely remembered. "Less talking, more shooting!"

With that, he fired both his laser rifles squarely into Megatron's back.
__________________________________________

Megatron was rocked back by Soundwave's assault. He somehow managed to stay on his feet, but the impact of so many rockets at once had turned the Decepticon leader's face into a smoking, ruined mess. The Constructicons' assault slammed him hard into a wall and Scavenger's groundwaves made him stumble as he tried to regain his footing. The other Decepticons' attacks burned away armour, melted plating and generally reduced Megatron's previously-pristine body into a battered ruin. But still he shambled forward, his optics locked on Starscream to the exclusion of all else.

Shrapnel's body was engulfed in electricity and he directed them onto where the other Decepticons' attacks had exposed circuits.
_________________________

Blackjack opened fire with his tiny shotguns, not sure what they would do that the larger Decepticons' fire could not. Nice glowing explosions, anyway...
_________________________

Bombshell transformed into his robot mode and lifted his mortar launcher and opened fire, aiming, like Soundwave, for Megatron's head. "Octopunch isn't a squid. That would be like calling me a stag beetle." His head-mounted horn took aim and launched two more cerebro-shells, just for the hell of it.
_________________________

"WRAAAAAAAAAAA!" Bonecrusher charged forwards after he had given Scavenger some time, and slammed both his fists with all his strength onto the ground near Megatron, hoping that the impact, coupled with Scavenger's trick, would cause it to crumble and bring the battle to the lower ground.
_________________________

"Hear, hear." Zephyr said when Ramjet spoke.

"Seekers, attack!" Fumarole shouted. He, Zephyr, Heatstroke and Tinker opened fire with their respective weapons, sending magnesium grenades, laser bolts and sleeping drugs flying at the Decepticon leader.

Clench saw the amount of firepower going over his head and slowly crawled away from the battle, not wanting to get blasted in the back again if he tried to stand up too soon.

Thrust raised his one functioning arm and fired at Megatron, like almost everyone else in the room, hoping not to be noticed by the clone in everything that was going on.

(OOC: sorry guys. been having to work 15-16 hr shifts for the last 2 weeks or so. Been a little distracted and haven't had much time to read, much less post.)

Kickback swung his legs into a powerful kick, targeting the areas that Shrapnel's electricity had already ravaged...and he was rewarded by a solid clunk as Megatron's fusion rifle slipped from his numb fingers.

"Go Team Insecticon," he muttered bitterly as he flew away.
__________________________________________

"Terran biology doesn't interest me, Bombshell," Soundwave told him bluntly.
__________________________________________

Megatron collapsed to the ground, his armour smoking from the sustained barrage that his troops were inflicting on him. But in spite of the brutal damage he'd sustained, the Decepticon leader -- or the blackened mess that was only vaguely recognizable as him -- continued to crawl toward Starscream.

Shrapnel flew away, and hovered some distance away from Megatron and pelted him with lightning bolts. "Yeah, yeah."
__________________________________________

"Doesn't surprise me, Soundwave." Bombshell told the communications officer as he launched mortar shells onto Megatron. "Doesn't this thing ever die?"

Blackjack and the Seekers likewise piled in with their own weaponry.

"Stand down!" Starscream ordered all attacking Decepticons, throwing both arms out and round in a dramatic gesture to re-inforce his words.

He looked down on the pitiful wreck still trying to crawl towards him, it's faceplate so damaged that only the burning optics remained, it's hands mere stumps, it's entire frame smoking.

He savoured the scene.

This might not be the real Megatron - was anyone sure if he still existed? - but this moment was priceless, in its own way. After all: he could rise to the position of ultimate power on this...

Shrapnel transformed into robot mode behind Megatron when Starscream told them to stand down, and saw that Bombshell, Blackjack and the others did likewise.

Shrapnel, however, did not lower his right arm, whose hand had been retracted, revealing the shrapnel grenade launcher.

The Insecticon glanced at Starscream and spoke what was surely was on all the other Decepticons' mind. "Will you kill him now, Starscream, Starscream?"

Shrapnel glared at Starscream; he did not trust the Seeker. But he knew that Starscream's desire to kill Megatron would override anything else he might feel.

Soundwave held up his hand, encouraging the other Decepticons to follow Starscream's order.

They'd better start getting used to it, he thought dryly.

But -- like he did with all leaders -- Soundwave would always be there whispering advice in his new leader's audio sensor. And now was the time for the first of many pieces of advice.

"I know you have a flare for the dramatic," he told the seeker, sotto voce, as he sidled up to him, "but now isn't the time. Finish this, it before it recovers. You don't know what upgrades the Quintessons might have given it's regenerative systems."

Of course, that wasn't Soundwave's real concern. He was really worried that some idiot like Ramjet would get impatient and ruin his carefully-scripted succession plan by stealing Starscream's thunder and killing the imposter himself.

Starscream let his arms fall and listened to Soundwave's murmur. The communications officer was right, of course, but Starscream did not need any reminder - thank you...

Hm, he knew Soundwave cherished his role as advisor to leaders and no doubt intended to carry on with it when the rule changed hands (as he had - and it had - before). He bitterly recalled an Earth-based feud between them, recognising that Soundwave had his measure. Perhaps. Still, a king did need a jester.

"Of course," he said quietly.

He sneered down at the fiery ruin of the Megatron clone which was still, even now, trying to claw its way towards him. It would be euthanasia, of a kind.

"How it pains me to do this," he stated, his deeper vocals carrying the old tones of mockery. He stepped forwards, half-turned and brought his right foot down firmly on the wreck's neck, pinning it, and fired a null ray at virtually point-blank into the head.

How's that for drama?

Megatron lurched as Starscream fired on him, then lay still. Soundwave aimed his scanners at the imposter to make sure that he'd been finished, but he needn't have bothered. Megatron's battered, melted body turned a flat, uniform grey as they watched, clearly signalling his death to anyone with optics to see.

Without missing a beat, Soundwave stepped forward, saluted and raised his voice.

"Hail Starscream, Decepticon Commander Supreme! We function for you and you alone!"

One by one, Ramjet, Scrapper, Buzzsaw and many of their comrades caught on and did the same.
