Favorite Pairing: Starscream and Megatron
It doesn’t matter if you’re shipping them or just watching them, Megs’ and SS’ relationship is so fucked up you can’t help but enjoy it. You’re never quite sure if Starscream wants Megatron in bed or just dead. Starscream is constantly trying to kill Megs and become leader, but there’s this strong undercurrent that he really just wants Megs’ approval, which he never gets.
The relationship has ended with Starscream dead or near-dead a healthy number of times…
…but there have also been times when Megatron has actually rebuilt him, and that adds another weird layer to the whole thing.
“Because I love him, that’s why!”
It’s not a healthy relationship, it’s a twisted one, and that’s what makes it so interesting. Megs/SS moments can be found in almost any TF series that features them, and if you haven’t yet, I’d recommend reading Nick Roche’s Spotlight: Megatron that came out a few months ago for one of the best explorations of that relationship I’ve ever seen.
