I will kill you... by Lecidre I will kill you... by Lecidre

"Megatron and Soundwave would pay. They would ALL pay."

Humanized version of Airachnid and Soundwave from this TFP fanfiction, Bitter Heartache.

In the story, Airachnid and Breakdown were bond-mates. They fell in love and were bonded before they came to Earth. It's not wise to make their relationship public, so most of the time they had to pretend to hate each other when they met in the corridors on Nemesis. No one else knew about their relationship except Knock Out.

When Airachnid suggested that they should leave Megatron behind and go forward while she commanded the ship, she never knew that one day she would pay dearly for this. Soundwave never forgot her betrayal, and he made sure she would be punished. He invaded Airachnid's mind, using mind control on her and taking over her body. Airachnid tried to resist, but everything she did was futile.

Under Soundwave's control, Airachnid did many things to hurt Breakdown's feelings. Breakdown wanted to ask her what happened, but all he got was her sarcastic insults. Finally, Breakdown lost it and attacked Airachnid. Regardless of her pleading, Soundwave made Airachnid kill Breakdown. He forced Airachnid to watch her beloved mate die, using her own hands to dismantle Breakdown limb by limb.

When Airachnid regained control of her body, she couldn't save Breakdown anymore. Looking at Breakdown's broken corpse, she swore to herself. Someday, she would murder both Megatron and Soundwave for taking the most important and special thing that she had left in her life...

I was listening to Gothic Storm's Tortured Heart when I drew this. If you're a Breakdown/Airachnid shipper and you also hate how those writers treated these two in the show, this fanfic will make you feel a little bit better.

I guess. :hmm:

Oh my Primus, this is a beautiful piece of art! And Soundwave is just...Kobeni Confused Icon  He is perfect! I'd love to see you draw more of him, of course if you have an time. Either way, I love your art, it is simply amazing!

Lol, thanks so much for this kind comment! Soundwave was such a charming character in TFP. He deserved more screen time, really. 

And I'm so happy to hear you actually liked this version of Soundwave. I'm planning to do some more pics for our sexy communication officer. Just need more time to get things done. :meow:

Hey my wig came in for my Airachnid costume. 
So what do you think?

BTW KILLER picture, I read the fic for this pic, pretty good and shows an actual backstory for what happened between Breakdown and Airachnid. Mind, even though I have a boyfriend now, he's more of Jack's demeanor than Breakdown's. I hope you don't mind me taking cosplay shots of me torturing Jack for when I finish the cosplay.

OMG. You... you did it! :omfg:

I saw that beautiful selfie you posted and I almost lost control. I was acting like a supid fangirl (jumping around and giggling nonstop when nobody was there to witness my silly behavior, of course) because I was so thrilled and happy and excited to see your cosplay. It's perfect! The wig looks great, too. I need to leave a super long comment on your photo later. You're so wonderful! :heart:

And no, I don't mind you torturing poor Jack at all. Honestly, it's totally natural for Airachnid to torture Arcee's partners. I can't wait to see those photos, I'm sure they will be amazing as well! :D

I always think Sounwave would be a formidable rival if he wants to give his opponents hell. Perhaps that's why Megatron likes him so much. :P
