Onix did his best to keep others out of his personal space. He was getting tired of it though, and if Starscream and Shockwave didn't kick off this brawl, he was getting ready to throw some punches at the nearest thug pushing in on him.
Metalingus and Eclispe were getting pushed more forward by everyone behind them as everyone wanted to get close in case Shockwave and Starscream kicked off a brawl. Eclipse wouldn't mind a brawl right about now just out of sheer boredom. Metalingus on the other hand would rather preserve his energon for Autobots.

The low grumble toned voice that spoke Starscream's name did not come from Shockwave. Everyone heard it and recognized it. The chamber that was fuelled of aggressive Decepticons went silent once the one known as the Slag Maker revealed himself from the crowd. Megatron, without another word, then lunged at Starscream, seizing him with one hand run his neck. Starscream struggled to free himself from the vice like grip. He couldn't talk as he felt the energon flow from between his head and torso slow down. Then the mighty Decepticon leader looked at his assembled warriors as they backed off from their angry leader.
'Decepticons! Each and everyone of you have swore to carry out the Decepticon cause. Each of your are an extension of my will. Starscream says that I have failed you. Failed the Decepticon cause and have denied you glory. Denied you victory! Denied you the final conquest of Cybertron its self! If this were to be true, if I did fail, then I failed because the army that is the extension of my will failed me!'
Scatterdust tried to disappear in to the crowd while Steeler was frozen where he stood. Vendetta continued pushing other Decepticons away from him while Sunreaper looked at Megatron in awe and with respect.
Powersurge grinned when he saw Megatron grab Starscream. He respected Megatron greatly, even more so for dealing with Starscream.
"Starscream is one of few who believe you failed, Mighty Megatron! You still have more than enough who remain loyal!" Powersurge called out, before he even realised he'd said anything.
Bomblast grinned. If anyone knew how to organise some carnage, it was Megatron. He was getting tired of the crowd jostling him around and smashed his elbow into the face of a much smaller mech just behind him. He whipped his head around at the sound of Powersurge.
Onix looked around at the others in awe over Megatron. Right now the thought of how much he might get from the Autobots if he gave them Meatron went through his head. He shoved it out just as quick, he knew it wouldn't be worth the hole in his chest afterward. He didn't feel the awe that the other did though. He didn't like being lumped into the Decepticon brainwashing the 'loyals' were under. He swore no oath.
"But Megatron, my Lord,"
That last part made him cringe
"the Dark Energon did more to my squads numbers than the Autobots ever did."
As the masses stop their great pushing, Sidwinder fell to the ground and slinked through the crowd to the side. He now had a clear view of Starscream, who's pain he was finding vastly entertaining, and Megatron.
He tryed to make his mind go blank but the small speech had sprung all sorts of traiterous and personal questions which he quickly stuffed away in the corner of his mind. Such thoughts were dangerous in moments like these.

Starscream heard what Onix Major had said and couldn't resist to comment. 'See Megatron? There's nothing you can give to your army in return for their services. Your word is nothing!'
With effortless motion, Megatron's arm swung up, picking Starscream's legs off the ground and slammed him down on the ground. With a foot on Starscream's chest, Megatron announced. 'If my Decepticons can not defeat Optimus Prime and his Autobot army when fueled with Dark Energon, then they are worthless! Weaklings do not deserve to wear the Decepticon symbol, and those unworthy shall be filtered out on the battlefield. That is if I don't filtered them out myself first.'
Megatron began to look at his troops, causing fear to creep up through their circuits, making most worry that they were about to be on the receiving end of the whatever punishment Megatron had in store for them. The Decepticon leader continued. 'Don't be so foolish as to think that I don't know what each of you is capable of and are not capable of! I know many of you did not carry out your orders as I gave them! I know many of your did not fight the way a Decepticon is suppose to fight! Cowards! Many of you are cowards! Cowards who have lied to my face, claiming your warriors! Lying so that I wouldn't smite you there and then. I only allowed you to function until now knowing that one way or another, you will die for me. I own each and everyone of you for I am the head of the great war machine that you are apart of. Fight Decepticons, it is your only choice. Now leave, and never speak again to me about failure, for it is I and I alone who will judge.'
As he finished his statement, Megatron once again looked around at his army who now stood in silence. The tension was heavy and the no one knew what to do in fear of what would happen next.
Then Sunreaper, with a fist in the air, yelled out. 'All hail the one true leader of Cybertron! Megatron! Megatron!'
Other followed and soon began to yell Megatron's name. Steeler and Vendetta followed in the rally while Scatterdust's optics rolled as he sort of just mouthed the words.
Megatron then took his foot off Starscream while staring at him the whole time. Megatron then looked up to find the biggest Decepticon that was close by.
'You there! What is your name?'
'Steeler, my lord!'
'Ahh yes. Your one of the Decepticons I am in need of. Pick up this piece of trash and the rest of your group follow me. Shockwave!'
'Yes Lord Megatron.'
'Begin to distribute assigned tasks to my soldiers, and have Soundwave meet me with the schematics that you have been working on.'
'Of course Lord Megatron.'
Megatron then walked through the crowd that opened for him quickly to give him room to move. Sunreaper followed Megatron right away, as did Vendetta. Scatterdust ran over to Starscream and looked at him in his face. 'I bet you thought this cycle was gonna work out a little differently didn't ya?'
Steeler then swatted Scatterdust away with a simply back handed swipe. 'Haha, oh how the mighty have fallen.' With a hand on Starscream's chest, Steeler picked up Starscream and put him on his feet to walk. Steeler kept a optic on the seeker commander while nudging him along as the group followed Megatron.

Attempting to shake off the intense fear Megatron's arrival had invoked in him, Retractor followed in Bomblast's wake, allowing the much larger decepticon to clear a path.
As he followed the lumbering brute, Retractor thought of Megatron's words. Hoping that the dark lord would be unaware of how he truly felt about his fellow decepticons, knowing that if he knew, Retractor himself would be one of those to fall beneath Megatron's heel.
Onix shook his head in amusement. Starsceam hasn't been the best at choosing his moments over the last several weeks. He followed the others. He wouldn't count himself any part of Steeler's team but he figured he came in with the other bots so that's where he was stuck for the time being.
Sidewinder jogged to catch up with Onix. "What a day so far. First a long trek, then an underground seeecret base, then a confrontation between Megatron and Starscream! Whatever next?" He chirped happily stareing with wide bright optics at Onix.
He was partly trying to get some fear out of his circuits, partly trying to avoid thinking deeper about subjects that were best left for personal unseen moments. But he was also excited about where Megatron would be taking them next.

Tormentor scuttled away from the crowds with his team, and caught up with the party carrying Starscream. He looked down at the stricken bot, then, almost casually, activated his drain powers and sapped a jolt of energon from the seeker. He giggled insessantly at the flight commander, jabbering in a high pitched voice. "You see what power is - holding someone else's fear in your hand and showing it to them! No dark energon for you, mister! Hehehehehe...." He moved away from them in flash, and walked right behind Steeler, whispering to the larger bot. "'Megatron? Bah! I shall be the hero of this war. Megatron can watch form afar at how it is done!' 'Onix Major right? Watch, when the chance for leadership arises, I'll be the one to take charge!''I'm gonna shove my foot up your turbo charger so fast your mouth will exhale exhaust!' 'At last! It looks as if we're going to see a fight. Lets see which one of these two will be left, the winner faces me!' I have a GOOD memory... heheheheh..."

Steeler turned on Tormentor. 'Come up on me like that again and I'll have break your laser chamber open!'
Before Steeler could turn back around, Starscream bolted past him and grabbed Tormentor by his neck. 'Steal energon from me will you!'
Steeler, being the large brute that he was, grabbed the two and seperated them both. Sunreaper quickly stepped up before Steeler did any damage. 'Hey! You three knock it off. I doubt Megatron will be to pleased if you decided to kill each other right now.'
Steeler let go of both Decepticon then went back to watching over Starscream.
Another minute passed and the group was now inside chamber that looked as if it had been a command room at one time. Now rusted and ruined, tables and chairs all twisted and aged with severed wires hanging off the ceiling.
As the group settled in, Megatron turned and walked up to Starscream. 'You have much more to answer for then just your out burst. In the short time since joining the Decepticons, you saw fit to replace me as leader of the Decepticons. Your either incredible ambitious or moronically stupid. Your inners that should be pulled inside out and feed to the space slugs. However, I still have a need for you. But be warned, consider your pardon temporary!'
Megatron turned his attention to the rest of the group. 'I know each and every single one of you and what you are capable of. I have a task that require your talents. I have lost Trypticon, my orbital battle station. I require a new one, a better and bigger one. Thats where you come in. Your task is to gather the worthless beings of this planet. Refugees, Emptys and even Autobots. The stronger ones are to be kept alive for they shall be used as slaves. The weaker ones shall be turned in to scrap and melted down for material. Do I make myself clear?'
