astolat: Victory Condition
"Do you want me to tell you a story?” Megatron said mockingly. “You won’t like it, Prime. It’s not a very nice one.”

[via reccer] Jfc, this story is unreasonably good. Like, this is a fandom where I have no idea if it bears much resemblance to canon but *who cares*.// Yup.

astolat: The Revolutionary
Ratchet turned his head to see that the yelling was coming from Starscream, who was at nearly the front of a conveyor belt they were all clamped on, which was heading straight for a neural destabilizer field, with a whole forest of cutters and clamps waiting after it -— oh Primus, they’d landed on a disassembly line.

There's some very tangential pairing action (and a bot orgy), but mostly this is gen action-horror with a side of revolution when a mixed group of Autobots and Decepticons crash on a creepy planet full of enslaved mechs.

maldoror-gw: Freeport
Freeport colony: a notorious den of pirates, smugglers and thieves. Wufei persuades one of its denizens, his one-time ally Duo, to help him catch a killer hiding there. Agent Chang thinks he knows what to expect from this case, from Freeport and from Duo Maxwell. He couldn't be more wrong.

Reads like a long, awesome original novel if (like me) you're only passingly familiar with the canon, with complex worldbuilding and lots of twists in the investigation and a great slow-burn relationship. (AO3: https://archiveofourown.org/works/12654255)
