"Megatron and Soundwave would pay. They would ALL pay."
Humanized version of Airachnid
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.
