I'll Follow You Forever is a Transformers story written by Darksidekelz.

Megatronus was outspoken, and full of dangerous ideas, ideas that only a mech with nothing to lose could afford to indulge in. And that was why Soundwave hated him.

The story contains Megatron/Soundwave and Megatron/Starscream.

Tropes featured in I'll Follow You Forever include:

  • Actually, That's My Assistant: When Starscream meets Soundwave for the first time while sparring with Megatron, he believes that Soundwave is one of Megatron's pets and calls him "floozy." Megatron immediately states his rank.
