Normally our fan fiction section is dominated by resident Fan Fic writer hell kitty, but this month we have a brand new Seibertronian stepping to the plate with fiction, NemesisUK‘s
: Nemesis Prime ChroniclesPart 1
A peaceful day (Sarcasm)
Nemesis prime (with shadow commander trailer) is driving down a highway having just killed his creator Straxus (see fans project shadow commander comic for more details) when in the distance a gun fight is happening, Nemesis prime decides to investigate.
As he get nearer he sees that a small transformer (Shadow Warrior) is being attacked by a larger transformer (Blaster).
He speeds to wards them (his honorable side kicking in) and fly’s up in to the air transforming in to his robot mode, both of the transformers stop shooting at each other as nemesis prime stands with his stellar converter cannon pointed at blaster, his right eye lights up red as he blasts Blaster.
Blaster falls to the ground, nemesis prime walks up to the small transformer who is shaking scared that he’s next.
“Are you ok?”
He says in his gravely voice down at the small transformer. He then walks away to wards his trailer.
Blaster stands up and ejects a cassette out of his chest that splits in to two guns, nemesis prime transformers in to Shadow commander but is being bombarded with laser fire.
Shadow warrior seeing nemesis prime in trouble he scans a weapon that is discarded on the floor, he transforms in to a double barrel Gatling gun and combines on to shadow commander’s shoulder.
Blaster is now being bombarded and is over powered, he retreats.
“Why did you help me?”
“You helped me so I repaid the favor”
Shadow commander walks away but Shadow Warrior follows him.
“Why are you following me?”
“We should become partners”
