I don't think I've ever done a 100-word drabble before. P.S. This is terrible, I'm just trying to encourage myself to write something more substantial for Transformers. Or to write at all, really.

Title: Duty Born Of
Series: Transformers G1/TFA/whatever
Rating: G
Wordcount: 100

There is more than one kind of duty. Duty is born of need, of necessity, of cold facts. Duty is born of requirement. Duty is born of love. Duty may be obvious; a soldier fights for duty. But there are other duties no less meaningful, no less important. The duty of the healer. Of a friend. Of a spy. Fulfilling duty may be painful, may be agonizing, may be the most wretched hopeless act - or it may be joy and love and light.

So when Shockwave says simply it is my duty, Lord Megatron, only Soundwave knows his meaning.

Have just read Spotlight: Shockwave, so I'm kind of in love with Shockwave right now) It's so much in character it makes me smile, because he is really all about duty and loyalty, but nobody knows what happens in his head. Thank you, these were the best 100 words of this weekend)
May I translate it, please?)

I think it fits Sockwave best because he is unnaturally loyal without getting anything in return. I mean, even Soundwave gets power even though he doesn't demonstrate it. It would have been normal for an Autobot, they do have their own private motives, but they are supposed to be unselfish, so that's OK with them. But it's most unusual for a Decepticon. I suppose, even Megatron isn't sure why Shockwave is so stubbornly loyal)

Thank you so much! I am going to post it in my pen-journal on and repost it later on if you do not mind. With all due credit, of course. I have sent the translation in a message, feel free to post it!

Now it's my turn to be excited) I stared at the Cyrillic letters on the page for some 5 seconds blinking and thinking "where am I and why do the words look so familiar?"))
I have an account on, but it's registered users only, so it's ok not to link to it.
Shockwave is awesome. Hope you will find something inspiring when you learn more;)
