Notes: Transformers does not belong to me. I also wanted to tag Starscream to this so I could see the look on his face... (maybe I might be a wuss in the end and not do it, so...) >:3 I don't regret anything. :/
Enjoy, because I'm going to be shot by the Seeker sooner or later.
The ingredients to a perfect cake is sugar, vanilla, flour and eggs, the most basic things in order to make a very sweet treat. In a way, cakes were similar to Megatron and Starscream's relationship.
Hey wait, Megatron and Starscream have a very abusive, bitter relationship! How can their relationship be sweet?
Answer: Never judge a book by its cover, or in this case, a relationship in public. You never know what two lovers do behind closed doors.
Let this sudden " Megatron-and-Starscream's-love-is-Cake" theory be explained properly now:
Sugar are the hugs and kisses Megatron and Starscream give each night before bed, and once more in the morning before going off to work.
Vanilla... Let us not go there.
Flour is thick and powdery. Like flour, Megatron is a thick-headed, stubborn mech, something that makes their relationship a great "cake". His personality makes him the dominant one in the relationship as a result.
Eggs is Starscream's treacherous side. As all of us know, eggs can be nutritional, but give you salmonella. Like eggs, Starscream could do his job well as a second-in-command, but his ill mind gives others the chills of not wanting to be beat up by the easily angered Decepticon warlord.
Those were the ingredients to a very sweet yet dysfunctional relationship.
Megatron was just done with the last datapad when Starscream strutted into the room after a flight with the other drones. Megatron could sense the happiness of the Seeker through the bond, as Starscream wrapped his long, slender arms around the gladiator's neck, and landing a sweet kiss on his forehelm. Megatron just smirked, claws gently running down his mate's arm.
"How was the flight? I heard that there were northern lights,"
"I was in love with the scenery, of course!"
Megatron smiled. He got up from his seat. Compared to Megatron, Starscream was very short. He was only able to reach half his arm, and could touch the Decepticon insignia on his chest if he tried to stand on his toes, maybe even jumping up and down at times. Megatron thought it was cute, but eventually he'd be lifting him up to peck him on the lips for being the adorable (and lethal) Seeker he was.
There might be lots of sweet moments to be remembered like this, but like almost every couple in the world, they have their flaws. Sometimes their flaws can escalate into huge fights, and in extreme cases, breaking up and finding a new person to love. On some occasions, the broken-up pair could get back together. That is the spice in a relationship.
Megatron and Starscream's spice to their sweet cake is not cinnamon. It was a pure Capsaicin, the hottest chili known to man, a whopping fifteen thousand* scoville units.
There were some bumps in their relationship, but in the end, they both managed to work it out. Like chilies, the heat eventually dies down if there is water poured onto the burning fire which is in your mouth.
Megs and Star's arguments and beatings were the kick in a Capsaicin when you take the first bite. Then after that comes the diarrhea, and the sweating, and then the feeling of your mouth burning from so much spiciness. That equals to Megatron starting to beat up Starscream till he was a pile of miserable scrap, all his life blood leaking out. He'd then take him to the medic (the water to cool your body after the chili), regretting his actions until there was another argument, a vicious cycle of loving and hating each other.
"Starscream," Megatron said as he bit on Starscream's neck cables, drawing some energon, leaving a mark on him. Starscream's frame heated up at the sensation and mewled before setting himself free from his grip.
He motioned for Megatron to follow him to the berth, and gladly, the warlord complied.
There was so much sugar... But too much spice at times to handle in this "cake", called their relationship.
