[There is a terrible quaking throughout the well area. Oh my, it's a big'un. Ink erupts forth, in a violent and explosive fashion. And from the ink, a terrible silver giant emerges. He stands, taking a moment before bellowing.]

I LIVE!!!!!!

[His shout echoes throughout the dark night, causing the very clouds themselves to tremble. He laughs a moment, Stretching out his arms. Ah, how long had it been since he was able to do so? Alright, enough with the pleasantries. There are more pressing matters at hand.]

Now then, where am I...?

[He surveys his surroundings, trying to pinpoint his location. How could he end up in what appeared to be the middle of a human city? Is this another hallucination? Could this all be fabricated? No, he dismissed that as unlikely. Why would his subconscious put him among humans? With a fierce scowl, Megatron sets out to explore the area.]

[ The rumblings were easy to recognize, they accompanied most of the Cybertronians' entrances, so on habit she came to see what would show in person. His voice she instantly recognizes from Soundwave's recordings. But still. Caroline can't bring herself to back away either. So she stands there by a building, watching him, taking in whatever observations she could gather. Unlike normal humans she didn't show any fear at his presence. ]

[Megatron, while not normally taking notice of humans, grew quickly irritated at the lack of fear or respect from the puny lifeform. He walks over the the female, and leans toward her, blocking out the view of the sky.]

Do you see anything interesting, human?

[ It wasn't his size, it was his face that had Caroline froze in place. Those red eyes, her heart was immediently pounding. ]

I. I meant no disrespect, Lord Megatron.

[ It was only after his name passed her lips that she realized what she had said. She takes a small step back, the urge to run growing. ]

[Megatron's eyes widen in a look of genuine surprise. Unfortunately, Megatron is not a fan of surprises. He plucks Caroline up the the neck of her jacket.]

Oh didn't you? And how might you know of me?

The decepticons have been preparing the city for your arrival. I-I don't know anyone here who doesn't know of you.

Is that so?

[Well, its a start.]

And tell me, filthy primate, why should I allow you to continue to draw breath, after failing so miserably to address me with the proper respect?

I wasn't prepared for the overwhelming power that comes with your presence, Lord Megatron. I was lost in it and couldn't bring my body to kneel. I am obviously at your mercy.

[ Her initial moment of fear had passed when she was able to regain her senses and remember that no matter what happened, she could just always return from the well. So, her tone again returned to its confident, polite manner. ]

[Obviously at my mercy. Obviously. Which is why she dares to address me with such....familiarity. Obviously.]

I see. If this is all true, then why, exactly, are there no shrines to my glory? No followers here prepared and kneeling? Just one foolish, puny fleshling.

[ Crap. Crap crap crap. Caroline glances to the left, perhaps giving herself away. ]

The others are too afraid, understandably.

[Megatron scowls, visibly shaking with anger.]

Do I look like a fool? You have one more opportunity to tell me the truth before I use my... how did you put it? 'Overwhelming power', to snap every one of your small, brittle bones. Now where shall I start?

[Megatron takes hold of her leg, firm grasp in three of his fingers, slowly applying pressure. Better say something quick, Caroline.]

[ She hadn't considered that he would kill her slowly and painfully. A bit of fear sneaks back into her voice. ]

Stop! It's how I've said! Your arrival was impossible to predict, we can't prepare you a welcoming party if we aren't sure when you'll arrive.

[You were warned, fleshbag. Megarton releases his grip on her jacket, while maintaining an iron grin on her leg. Her 'fall' puts a huge strain on her leg, possibly dislocating it. Despite the position, Magatron shows no signs of relenting.]

Oh? Do go on. Are you done with these lies?

[ There's a loud crack, but it's hard to hear over her scream, first in fear and second in pain. ]

I-I've met them- [ Despite herself, tears begin to well up in her eyes. ] I do f-field work for ugh, Starscream.

[Megatron smiles. Look how they can be taught to obey.]

Oh? What manner of field work?

[Megatron begins swinging her slightly by the appendage.]

[ She cries out in pain as she's swung from her dislocated hip. ]

Research on the people in the city! E-errands!

[ Please please please don't sense the energon she had been working with. Just hours ago she had finished creating her synthesist capsule for the possible creation of Element Zero that required energon as a sort of energy amplifier. ]

[Megatron slows her swinging to a stop. See what rewards you get by telling the truth?]

Errands? What kind of errands would Starscream need you for? Do they have anything to do with the stink of energon around you?

[ With that, she quiets. Break her bones, drop her, smear her into the dirt, she's not going to tell him anything about her current project. Her obsession with her newfound knowledge made her a little irrational about its protection. ]

[ Despite her pain, Caroline steels her expression and she looks at him directly. ]

With all due respect, Lord Megatron. I should tell you that Optimus Prime is here as well. If he saw you torturing a poor human, I imagine a fight might break out. He's not alone. Your ship is here, and so are your soldiers. Surly you have more important matters to tend to.

[Megatron lets out the most terrifying laugh imaginable.]

Do you think, for even one moment that saying that name will spare you from my wrath? Rest assured, I would enjoy nothing more than to fight, and dispatch, that idealistic idiot.

[In a show of just how little he cares for 'what Optimus would see', Megatron twists Caroline's foot. while no bones break the skin, the ankle makes a sickening 'pop' noise.]

But you are right. I suppose there are more important matters to tend to. Let us have a chat with Starscream, shall we?

[ That said, Megatron transforms, catching her in his cockpit and flying off towards the Nemesis. ]

[ There had been a good amount of velocity from her fall in the middle of his transformation to when she landed within his cockpit. The impact as hard on her back, upside down. The pain coming from her right leg was indescribable, running from ankle to hip to the top of her skull and back. It would have been impossible to keep from crying out in pain from both impact of the landing and the injury, but she was a bit louder with it, knowing that her voice would be ringing out from inside of him. ]

[Megatron ejects Caroline as he transforms, landing on the Nemesis. He resumes holding the human by the hem of her jacket, her injured leg clearly visible, foot grotesquely turned 180 degrees opposite the direction it should be going. ]

Starscream!! I have something we must discuss!

[Lord Megatron was summoning him already? This could be either very good or very bad (Hopefully you've kept your mouth shut, SOUNDWAVE). He walks gracefully to the hangar, cupping his hands together in a humble gesture.]

You uh...rang, my lord?

[His eyes turn to Carol-FFFFF WHY WAS SHE HERE.]

[ Her head hangs, her hair obstructing her view and in all truthfullness, the pain had her on the verge of passing out. It was Starscream's voice that made her look up. She didn't say anything, but her eyes were reading 'kill me please' ]

Yes... This little fleshling has been saying such interesting things. She claims she does...what was the word...errands for you. Considering the amount she knows of us, and the stink of energon on her, I'm inclined to believe she's worked with you.

Megatron takes a threatening step towards Starscream.]

Such an adept show of deceit could only be taught by you, Starscream. So perhaps you would like to inform me why we are now working together with humans.

[That last utterance of the word human was in particular, quite venomous. Think fast Starscream.]

[Wow, that didn't take long. His lordship was back for roughly a few hours and he's already had pretty much all his secrets spilled. Don't worry, though, he knows how to think on his feet.]

Lord Megatron, do you not trust my strategic mind? Optimus Prime is in this world as well, and under your orders I am not to touch him, as he is your prize. That does not mean that I cannot gather information on his weaknesses for you. It is quite hard to gather it covertly, what with my visage clearly recognizable to him, but...to use the one thing he trusts against him, is it not in our best interest?

[He won't mention how much she's kind of failed to report on information at the moment. Cause that won't do him a lick of good.]

So allow me to understand your 'strategic mind'. You are so incapable of simple intelligence gathering, that you need to enlist the help of humans to do it FOR YOU?!?

And that still doesn't explain why this wretch--

[Megatron shakes the human in anger.]

has worked with energon, or feels a need to withhold information.
