Astrotrain had been following Soundwave and his minions for sometime when he suddenly faced a sight that made him feel very uneasy. Blitzwing, a fellow triplechanger and a warrior far more skillful than Astrotrain himself was partly lying on the floor, partly leaning against the wall, limp and motionless. Closer inspection revealed major damage to the back and chest of the commando despite it appeared that nothing had actually punctured through Blitzwing's body.

Kneeling down before his fallen comrade, Astrotrain made a quick scan to determine whether Blitzwing was still salvageable or nothing more than scrap metal to be recycled. To his relief, Blitzwing's sparkcore appeared to be intact, having gone through emergency shutdown.

Sighing heavily, Astrotrain scooped the weapons of the fallen triplechanger and attached them to a magno-lock on his waist before lifting up Blitzwing from the floor and positioned his limp form on his wide shoulders. Securing his ion-displacer rifle with his free right hand, Astrotrain set after Soundwave again, hoping to make it out of the trembling volcane before it erupted.

The breach

"I'd agree with your assessment of the situation 'Warp. But there's still too many of ours locked inside." Thundercracker replied to Skywarp and fired a series of incendiary rounds towards the cover he had seen Blades peeking out from.

"Soundwave is still somewhere there as few others. You think Megatron is going to forgive us if he looses them because we couldn't hold the line?" He added. "No."

"Use your abilities to evacuate our troops left behind and then we bury the Autobots." Thundercracker added and fired few more rounds towards Blades' position as Ramjet, Thrust and Dirge joined him at the barrier made by the Constructicons and began firing at the Autobot positions.

Ramplate had to compensate as his swing missed, and he felt Jazz's feet strike at his back while the mace struck the ground with a SPANG! The elbow didn't do anything but force the Decepticon warrior to brace his legs, staying up despite the blow. As he turned around though, Jazz's weapons caught him directly in the chest, the ion stream tearing a furrow in the armor down nearly to the frame while the flamethrower bathed him in yellow and orange wrath...

Wrath that the tank-former seemed intent on returning tenfold as he roared out his hate, swapping weapons again for the massdriver and lasers, filling the air with cones of razor sharp self-sharpening tungsten spray and pulses of deadly laser light, the flames licking at his torso making him look like something spawned from the Infernos of the Pit itself! First Jazz, then Blades, then Smokescreen would be the target of his fury, as he swept his weapon across the room...

Despite the seething anger though, Ramplate was no fool. Alone, he could still be ripped apart, so he switched on his internal comms to try and get through to the others around. >>"Decepticons, the Autobots have multiple wounded within the breach, it should slow them down... Converge and hit them with everything!!!!"<<

Bounce Chamber

Jazz's only hope was to bring the large burly 'Con down, that, however, didn't happen.

Just go down! For Crying out loud! Jazz thought to himself.

Just then, Ramplate fired his weapons, the lasers clipping his shoulders, and one of the massdriver cones spliced along his upper torso, leaving a long scar that nearly hit his frame.

He called out in pain as the corresponding processors sprang into action, bringing him off of the blue 'Con, and into a crouched position on the ground behind Ramplate.

"You picked," He grunted as he stood up, "The absolute wrong 'Bot to pick on."

He pointed his Ion Rifle at Ramplate's knees.

"Better cut you down to size!" Jazz mumbled.

He fired his Rifle at the burly 'Con's knees, two at each. With any grain of luck, Ramplate's knees should buckle, bringing him down.

(OOC: Whoa... Just noticed what you did there in your post, Cry. Will address that in my next post, if that's all right.)

Bounce Chamber

Blades couldn't take it any longer. The conflicts between Ramplate and several particular Autobots—Autobots he was supposed to guide to safety—had to cease. Little could be achieved against the Constructicons and their newly produced volatile structure, so the Protectobot permitted the Decepticon's bellicose entrance to occupy the bulk of his attention. Ramplate, with a tempestuous mixture of laser fire and streaking flames, appeared from out of nowhere, completely disrupting any designs Blades was about to set into motion. Who he was mattered none to Blades; what he would become was the more relevant concern.

He speared Ramplate with a prolonged gaze, his optics blazing with rage. Frag this and frag you, buddy. You want to come out of who-knows-where and ruin my mission? And parade around with a gun that creates nothing but a light show? You're scrap, you rust bucket!

Disassembling a single rotor blade from his back, the Protectobot fashioned the deceptive-looking weapon in his grasp, the smooth surface of the rotor reflecting gleams of light from it. Not only was this Decepticon encumbering Blades' exceedingly difficult task, but he had just contacted his fellow Decepticons to merge with him at his present location. If that were to occur—well... Blades' situation was already disastrous enough; he did not need any further complications injected into the equation.

Activating his form into motion, he approached Ramplate with brisk footfalls, intent on eradicating the tank-former with his rotor. “Move it or lose it, Jazz! I'm gonna wipe this fragger out!"

Weapon: Energo-Sword
Bounce Chamber

Ironhide didn’t have too much trouble dodging the big Decepticon’s charge. He wasn’t exactly quiet, smashing through everything in his path. The old security mech was quick to place himself between the wounded and the bots tending to them and the incoming fire. Ramplate’s weaponry wasn’t the strongest though, or the most accurate. His tactics seemed to be to rely on his bulk and noise to carry the day while using the ‘spray and pray’ method with his guns. It was pretty typical bully tactics of a Decepticon, the type of stuff that worked really well on rookies and non-combatants. Unfortunately for Ramplate, Ironhide was far from either of those things.

Still, Ironhide had other concerns. He had come along to rescue these Bots, and he’d be slagged before he failed in that mission. He listened in on all of the shouting and communications going back and forth and formulated a plan. >>”Alright Bots, here’s the plan. The Cons are expecting us to go out that breach, so we aren’t gonna do that. Hound can whip up some holograms to go through and we can detonate whatever goop they’ve sprayed out there with a laser blast. That’ll keep the Cons confused for a few minutes while we bust out own hole outta here. I figure between my ‘waterguns’ and all of the weapons the Protectobots and the rest of us are packin’ it shouldn’t be a problem. I’ll get us started and then move on to takin’ care of big and ugly here with Blades. Hardhead, you feel free to throw in too if it looks like we need ya, otherwise cover the rest of ‘em as the bust outta here."<<

With the orders given Ironhide began to put his plan into motion. Sliding his hands into his arms he produced his chemical emitters. He sprayed a blast of concentrated acid on one of the walls adjacent to but far away from the breach. It rapidly began eating away at the metal, revealing the hallway behind it and hopefully what would be an outer wall they could smash their way through.

With that part set into motion it was time to take care of Mr. big, loud and noisy. Ironhide walked towards Ramplate, his fired bits of shrapnel and lasers bouncing off his tough hide, with the occasional hit scorching or nicking his armor. He had been in enough battles to know how to deal with these loud bully types. You just had to walk up and punch them right in the mouth, and that’s what he was going to do.

Out of the corner of his optic the security mech spotted Blades making a move towards Ramplate. Hopefully his attack would give the Protectobot an opening. Ironhide walked up to Ramplate and grabbed his gun, shoving it aside. “I’ve had just enough of you Deceptichump!" With that he launched a vicious uppercut at Ramplate’s chin with his right fist.

*

First Aid nodded at Axle’s assessment. “I think if we can get him back to the Guardian I can get him back up and running in time. The tough part is just getting him out of here." The doctor hit the deck as Ramplate came blazing in, forcing Ironhide to protect him with his own body. The move was appreciated by First Aid, but made him wince at the same time. He was going to make sure Ironhide got a full repair treatment when they got out of here.

He grabbed Hot Spot’s feet as Hex grabbed his upper half. “Oh I know, this isn’t exactly the first time we’ve had to carry him off the battlefield, sometimes he’s even conscious and still insisting he can fight," he replied to Hex. He carefully placed him on the bed of Axle’s alternate mode. He then produced a can of hydraulic fluid from his repair kit and tossed it to Lore-Lock. “Hope that’s enough for now."

It was then that the Protectobot received the signal from Ironhide. As far as he could tell it was a solid plan. He watched as Ironhide sprayed some acid on the wall to start their new escape plan. “Alright Axle, that’s where we’ll be going out. Now just let me add what little help I can offer." First Aid transformed and fired his decrystalizer cannon at the second wall, weakening it. “Now we just need someone strong enough or well armed enough to blast through that weakened section and we are out of here."

Groove and Streetwise moved to help Hound, Lore-Lock and Smokescreen get to the new opening, taking occasional shots at Ramplate and out of the original breach to keep the Decepticons busy.

*

Outer Breach

Hook rolled behind the improvised cover Bonecrusher had created for them. “Elegant as ever Bonecrusher," he commented dryly. He knew the sarcasm was liable to fly right over the other Constructicon’s thick cranium. He peered around the cover and fired off a couple of shots before overhearing Mixmaster’s comments on his chemical mixture. “Ah, excellent. I’m glad to hear such information before I decided to return fire at the Autobots," he sneered at Mixmaster. “Its only because of my precise aim that I didn’t detonate it already."

*

Corridors

Soundwave came to a halt as another tremor shook the base. The continuing trend of these tremors was troubling. The base had already seen severe damage. It was possible that the detonations and energy discharges had affected the surrounding terrain as well. The volcano had registered as dormant when they had arrived on planet but they had never planned for a major battle to take place inside of it.

It was obvious now that the base would not survive this confrontation. There were too many variables at play for him to feel comfortable remaining inside of it. He altered his course and began making his way to the nearest exit, his cassettes, Ravage now joining them, trailed behind him. At the same time he sent a signal out to Megatron. >>”Megatron, volcano growing unstable. Likelihood of eruption: high."<<

*

Slipstream saw Soundwave pause briefly before changing direction, heading for an exit. She was more then happy to follow him. While this might be home for some of these Decepticons it was just another backwater infiltration base to her. The sooner she was out of here the sooner she could be somewhere more glamorous and interesting.

*

Mountainside

Megatron grunted as Prime slammed into him. He quickly grabbed a hold of the Autobot leader, twisting himself around so that he guided both of them towards a wall of the base, smashing through it and back inside of storage room. The Decepticon leader pushed off from his Autobot counterpart, a sneer on his face.

“It will take far more then that to send me to the Pit Prime." He smiled at his old enemy. “Even if you succeeded I would find a way out. I clawed my way from the very depths of Cybertron society to rule our people, to fulfill their rightful destiny as conquerors. You have proven only to be a stubborn obstacle in my path Prime, and once you are removed their will be no one to stop me."

Megatron received the signal from Soundwave and quickly developed a plan around it. Should all else fail today, he would still be assured of putting an end to Optimus Prime one way or the other.

Mountain Side

Skywarp listened to Thundercracker as his buddy told him what he needed to do. The idea of using his teleportation abilities to evacuate the rest of the Decepticons still trapped inside the mountain was something that had not previously occurred to the prankster. Of course, why would it? ‘Warp wasn’t usually one to come up with such ideas as more often than not he needed constant supervision from his superiors to be completely effective at his job. Thankfully, he also had his blue friend to keep an optic on him and guide him in the proper direction.

“Good idea, ‘Cracker. I’ll get right on it," Skywarp responded as he received Nightraven’s communiqué, calling for help. “Heh, looks like I’ve got my first customer!"

The teleporter then opened a comm line back to Nightraven: >>”No problem! I’ll be right there."<< With his response given, Skywarp disappeared from sight.

Corridors

Skywarp reappeared beside Nightraven, who was standing over a stasis-locked Hellion. The concern on the purple femme’s face plate was obvious even to a prankster like ‘Warp. He actually felt a sense of sympathy for Nightraven which was something he rarely felt for any other mech even Thundercracker. But there was something about ‘Raven that had always attracted him to her even if she didn’t share the same sentiment back. ‘Warp was, after all, more concerned with playing pranks on others than caring about how they felt. Nightraven was different, though, and perhaps now was ‘Warp’s chance to show her that there was more to him than the immature prankster everyone wrote him off as.

Skywarp placed a gentle hand on Nightraven’s shoulder. “Don’t worry. I’ll get her out of here safely." The teleporter gave her a wink before bending down and picking up Hellion in both arms. “Thundercracker wants me to get everyone out before the volcano erupts. That means you’re coming, too, Nighty."

‘Warp moved in close to Nightraven, allowing his one good wing to come into contact with her slender shoulder. Without further delay, Skywarp and the seeker sisters disappeared from the wrecked corridor.

Mountain Side

Skywarp and the sisters reappeared outside a short distance down the hillside from the breach. He placed Hellion down on the ground before looking back up at Nightraven. “She should be safe here. I’m going back in to evacuate more of our troops. You can either remain here or reinforce our troops at the breach." The teleporter then flashed a smirk at her before vanishing once again.

Corridors

Skywarp reappeared in a different corridor from before. Here he found Astrotrain carrying a deactivated Blitzwing while looking for an exit. “Okay, I’m your ticket outta here, Astrotrain. Hold on to Blitzy and we’ll be outside before you know it!" The prankster grabbed a hold of the triplechangers and teleported them to safety on the mountain side.

Bounce Chamber

Hardhead grew impatient as he waited for a response from Jetfire. Perhaps the scientist was in a dogfight with Starscream which prevented him from answering. Regardless of the situation outside, Hardhead wasn’t going to just sit around inside the enemy’s base and twiddle his thumbs, not while Jazz and Blades were engaged with a very large enemy in the form of Ramplate.

Thankfully, Ironhide had come up with a plan and quickly went to work on creating a new breach on a neighboring wall far down from the first breach. His acid emitters had succeeded in melting the bounce chamber’s wall while a follow-up shot from First Aid’s decrystalizer cannon had considerably weakened the second, outer wall.

Hardhead knew that he possessed the strength necessary to break through to the outside and thus his talents were wasted on providing simple cover fire as Ironhide had suggested. Therefore, the stubborn warrior looked around the room and found that Smokescreen was up on his feet again. “Hey, Smokey, I need you over here. Cover us while I go make us a new exit!"

Without waiting for a response, Hardhead moved away from the breach and headed across the chamber towards the weakened wall. Once there, the big mech backed up as far as he could and then charged straight ahead with all of the speed he could muster. As he quickly approached, Hardhead leaned forward and plowed head first into the damaged wall, smashing right through and onto the mountain side beyond. He stumbled a bit on the uneven ground, but managed to remain upright.

Light streamed in through the second breach as the green soldier turned back around and reentered the bounce chamber, brushing rock and dirt off of himself. “That’s why I’m called Hardhead," he said, banging his head twice with his fist. “Now let’s get everyone out of here before we all end up as molten stew!"

******

Hearing Hardhead’s call for assistance, Smokescreen moved to the first breach where he took cover behind the fallen debris. Popping his cranial unit up for a moment, he fired off several shots at the Constructicons and Seekers that blocked their way from escaping. As return fire streaked back at him, Smokey ducked down and watched as Hardhead made short work of the weakened wall across the chamber. “Damn," was all the Smokey could mutter under his breath at the sight of the big green goliath smashing through, allowing light to pour in from the outside.

Time to detonate that sticky slag the Constructicons smeared all over our original escape route, Smokescreen thought as he waited for his opening. When it came, Smokey popped back up and fired numerous shots directly at the edges of the breach, which quickly ignited Mixmaster’s volatile chemical.

“Fire in the hole!" Smokescreen shouted as an explosion erupted at the first breach, sending debris flying everywhere. The diversion expert dove to the side to avoid the direct force of the blast, but still found himself covered with bits of rock and metal. Nothing too damaging, however.

Smokescreen slowly got to his feet and stumbled over to Hardhead’s side, where he leaned his battle-damaged body against the war veteran for support. Looking at the newly formed breach, the diversion expert smiled. “So, that’s why they call you Hardhead, huh?" Smokey asked in a teasing manner. The green mech’s response was a simple nod followed by a wide grin across his face plate. “Yeah, well..." the red and blue racer continued as he motioned back towards all of the smoke and dust that surrounded the first breach. "That’s why I’m called Smokey."

Weapon: Oxidating Laser
Outer Breach

Mixmaster brought both actuators up to either side of his auditory sensors as an explosion rocked the other side of the barricade that Bonecrusher had erected. Bits of debris had crumbled to the ground, but the barrier had held up, if only barely, given how hastily it had been thrown together.

“Ooooh…I wonder who bit the scrap on that one. Chaos chaos chaos, heheheh” Mixmaster chuckled, before beginning to spray a non-combustible concrete sealant in the cracks and other loose areas within Bonecrusher’s barricade.

His internal sensors informed him that his raw materials were beginning to run low. He made it a point to remember to refill on something—or someone—at his next available opportunity so that he could get his numbers back up to where they needed to be. Especially since their current location seemed to be drawing all sorts of unnecessary attention. Not to mention the fact that his sensors had also registered another tremor, one decidedly unlike what he had felt when the explosives on the other side of the barricade had been detonated. Surely he hadn’t been the only one that felt it. It would probably be a good idea to take the party somewhere else.

Ramplate watched as Ironhide made his way towards him, knowing that this was going to hurt. Ironhide had a reputation as one of the Autobots' true heavyweights, and as strong as the Decepticon was he knew that a fight with the old timer would not be in his favor. Regardless, it wasn't like he had much choice now. As he prepared to face off against the red-plated mech, Jazz's shot tore into his left knee from behind, causing the tank-former to stumble to his other knee in pain. He had just enough time to look up and see Ironhide's fist connecting with the faceplate of his helm, sending his optics out of focus for a moment, even cracking part of his jaw!

As awareness returned, he detected Blades coming up and him as well, and decided that desperate measure were indeed required. Ramplate let himself fall forward, then activated the anti-grav pods that made up his thigh and back components, feeling some of the diamond shards digging in as the vents switched open for a fraction of a second to send the 'Con slamming forward towards Ironhide at speeds similar to his vehicle form, hopefully sending both Decepticon and Autobot flying away from the other combatants. It caused vibrations to ripple through his superstructure painfully, but Ramplate hoped that this would work, as it also took him away from the wounded Hot-Shot, a plan the warrior hoped would mean that the 'Bots would focus more on escape than pursuing him. Ironhide was going to be enough trouble alone after all....

OoC: YEAH longest post ever! By the way, if carrying Prowl is illegal, tell me and the changes will be made, and you get to reserve the right to call me an idiot! Which I can goof up sometimes, so, be forgiving! :)

Bounce Chamber

Jazz was watching the hulking form of Ramplate, and not the Constructicon Barricade.

He listened in to Ironhide's plan, and gave him a quick nod of understanding. An explosion then followed, it was not Ironhide's punch, it was the C4 that had just exploded that Mixmaster had sprayed.

Jazz covered his head on the ground in a ducked position as the shrapnel and dirt covered his body. There was little damage, just simple denting and scratching of paint.

He stood up and looked around in the smoke and saw nothing, so he turned on his sensors to try to find where everyone. He found the Constructicons and the Autobots, but found one far off, it was Prowl.

>>Prowl is away, I'm going to go get him, just leave the door open, kay guys?<< Jazz said through the comm link to The Autobots at the doorway.

He jogged to, what seemed to be, the place where he had come into the Decepticon Base.

Glancing around he caught sight of a corridor that was consistent with Prowl's reading.

Thankfully, the smoke in this place was thin enough for him to be able for him to see.

Corridors

Jogging through the corridors, looking for any signs of the white mech. All hope seemed to be lost, but then as another tremor shook him to his frame, he caught glimpse of a white object out of the corner of his eye, it was Prowl! He lay slumped on the ground, unconscious, though still functioning.

"Jeez dude, what did you get yourself into?" Jazz said to him as he stuck his arms under the fellow Autobot's armpits, and lifted him, just enough for him to lay on his shoulder.

Jazz grunted under the weight of him as he stood up, another tremor, it was getting more frequent. The Volcano was waking up, with Jazz and Optimus Prime still in it!
Realizing this, Jazz put in extra effort to lift Prowl with all his might, and hurried him out of the corridors, and into the Bounce Chamber.

Bounce Chamber

Dashing through the chamber, Jazz carried Prowl through the chamber, servos creaking under the weight, and his wound leaking energon on Prowl.

Another tremor, now it was getting urgent that everyone (except Megatron, of course.) was to be evacuated. Immediately.

Straining to jog across the room, Jazz carried the unconscious white mech to the opening Ironhide and Hardhead had just created.

"*Whew* Hardhead, I could use a little help..." He said to the green warrior.

He managed to point his Ion Rifle at Mixmaster, and fired it three times at his barrel, with any luck at all, they would hit and explode the substance inside of him.

He felt Prowl's weight become more and more pronounced, so he put his other had to hold up the white mech.

"Now would be preferred..." Jazz said impatiently to Hardhead.

Outside

Sideswipe didn’t bother looking back once the club was out of his hands and headed toward Space Case; instead he kept low and dove behind a boulder when both clubs met in midair and exploded. Sideswipe managed to peek over his cover and see the outcome of the devastation and his opponent.

“Heh, never take on a real warrior," he said under his breath.

When the dust finally settled Sideswipe stood from his hideout and tentatively made his way past the destroyed tree Space Case hit and on toward the Cons positioned at the breach.

Corridors

Nightraven let out a sigh of relief when she received Skywarp’s response. Moments later the black and purple Seeker appeared next to her and Hellion. The lithe femme watched as Skywarp gently lifted up her stasis locked sister with ease, but before she could express her gratitude he spoke up letter her know that he was evacuating everyone out of the base; her included. Nightraven opened her mouth to protest, hoping to stay behind and take care of at least one Bot in the base, but Skywarp had already moved in closer to her, his wing brushing lightly on her shoulder, and in a flash all three Seekers were outside the base.

Mountain Side

After the teleportation Nightraven placed her hand on her head while she tried to steady her balance. She was never privileged to be teleported by Skywarp before, and the after effect was possibly the one reason why she never tried it before. Once she regained her focus she looked down as Skywarp looked up at her; Hellion lay out carefully under a nearby tree.

Nightraven’s attention moved from her sister back to the male Seeker, and again, she opened her mouth to thank him, but he was already addressing her. She was only able to flash him a slight smile before he teleported back into the base. The purple femme knelt down beside the prone form of Hellion and took her limp hand into hers.

“Don’t worry Helly. I’ll make sure you’re fixed up as good as new. I promise."

Bounce Chamber

Had he the ability Hex would have rolled his optics at First Aid’s response to his comment on Hot Spot. The young mech hefted the Protectobot leader onto the bed of his guardian’s alt mode and then stepped back to look at First Aid.

“Ah, so he actually is a slagger. Always nice to know."

Axle groaned at Hex’s remark and quickly opened their private comm channel.

>>"Hex, you need to get yourself under control. We need to get out of this base post haste, and we can’t do it without everyone’s help. Now do exactly what I tell you, and if I hear so much as a snicker I’ll put you in stasis lock myself! Is that understood?"<<

The silver mech hesitated at first but finally gave in to the wishes of his guardian.

>>"Fine."<<

>>"Good. Now get your aft out that breach and give me cover fire."<<

Without a word Hex made his way to the opening and drew his rifle. He took a hesitant glance to make sure there were no Cons visible and then carefully stepped outside. With the sight clear Hex motioned for Axle to head out to a safe location.

The field medic made his way out of the breach and sped off toward secure location.

Outside the Interference Perimeter

A tower of light broke through the darkening sky only to touch the soft grass in the open field. Once the light dissipated a single form was left behind. The Autobot had grown uneasy when there was no word from the Bots he was assigned to. Before he bounced down to the surface he made sure to link the Guardian’s orbital bounce controls with his own systems.

Not wanting to waste any more precious time the tall slender mech quickly traversed the terrain. Once he came to a heavily concealed location he drew his sniper rifle and carefully took aim at the group of Decepticons near one of two perimeter breaches.

Perceptor opened an encrypted channel with First Aid.

>>"First Aid, it’s Perceptor. I’m located approximately two miles South-West of the Decepticon base. It looks like, at least from my location, Cons are trying to reorganize. Only one Constructicon seems to be making a hasty retreat. And if I’m not mistaken there has been another sizable tremor, but this one was unlike the previous ones. My suggestion: get out of there yesterday!"<<

Storage Room

Prime’s body collided with the side of the base causing both leaders to crash into a storage room. As his opponent pushed off of him, Prime also got back to his feet.

“You worked alongside many of those you and yours slaughtered. At one time you were a member of the same society as I was, but chose to answer the Senate with violence."

Prime lunged at his enemy and gripped the Decepticon leader by the hands. Digging his feet into the plates that made up the floor of the chamber, Optimus Prime began pushing Megatron deeper into the chamber.

“I’ve listened to your rhetoric for far too many vorns now and I’m tired of it. Let’s bring this war to a close."

Prime shifted his weight to his forward leg and quickly brought his rear leg up aiming his knee for Megatron’s abdomen. With any luck the hit would double the Decepticon leader over leaving him open for another attack.

Bounce Chamber

What a frustrating episode it was proving to be. Not only was his advancing application for brutality disturbed by Thundercracker and the Coneheads, but Ironhide, emerging from somewhere within the Decepticons' habitable abomination, began conducting his own fists on Ramplate's features. Wait, where did he come from? A hole in the wall? Blades couldn't have conjured up a more bizarre series of events even if he were mad.

Ironhide's shot on the tank-former was still wicked, though. He did have to admit that much.

Positively needing to rid himself of the Decepticon jets' disagreeable company—particularly Thundercracker—Blades produced one of his “smart” rocket launchers, took aim, and fired. While a tremendous volume of abhorrence saturated his emotions for employing such a weapon, its capabilities would still yield the results he would be hoping for. It was just a shame he wouldn't be able to bask in the warm vital fluids of the Seeker's shattered form; destruction he would have been more than happy to manage. Oh, how Blades prayed that single rocket would annihilate Thundercracker into nothing more than particles drifting about in the atmosphere...

With events progressing as they were moments ago, Blades resumed his actions, committed to putting Ramplate six feet under. After all, teamwork was a vital component to the Protectobots' philosophy, and he would be there to assist Ironhide in taking down that big spawn of a glitch. Best teamwork assignment he'd had in a couple of vorns, he thought.

“Be right with you, Ironhide. Just make sure you don't hurt him too bad before I step in, all right? My fists are begging me to beat the slag out of some 'Con."

The Breach

When Mixmaster's explosive goo detonated, the Constructicon barricade absorbed the blast well enough - protecting the Decepticons taking shelter behind it. However, the roof of the chamber they were in did not do as well. The explosion had immediately brought down considerable amount of rock and the cracks in the roof were a clear sign of what was to come. It was only matter astroseconds when the trembling of the mountain would cave-in the mountainside where the breaches were located.

"Did you hear that?" Thrust asked, getting freaked out by all the trembling of the mountain.

"Uh huh." Bonecrusher replied to the seeker's question. While not the smartest 'con around, demolitions were his specialty and he was more than proficient enough to suggest the next course of action for the others. "Hehe, it is going to collapse."

"Collapse?!" Thrust yelped, jumped up and rushed for the exit, only to be met by a blast straight through his canopy by Perceptor. With a scream of surprise and pain, Thrust fell down the mountainside with a smoking hole in his chest.

"Sniper!" Thundercracker bellowed just before being forced to dive behind the barricade due to a rocket fired by Blades. The situation had suddenly become very dire. The mountainside would collapse any moment now and they were also facing a sniper without any chance to take cover. They had no choice other than risk taking hits from the sniper or get buried in an erupting volcano. He just hoped that Skywarp had been able to get the 'cons deeper inside the base like Baneblade and Ramplate out as well. Forcing himself back to his feet, the blue seeker grabbed Ramjet who was standing next to him and still spraying laser fire into the chamber where the rocket had came from by arm and turned the conehead towards the exit. "Everyone clear out! Now!"

Glaring at Thundercracker angrily, Ramjet accepted the order. He hated being ordered around but he did understand the situation they were facing. Giving a nod, acknowledging Thundercracker's order - Ramjet took the point and charged for the exit with the other seekers and hopefully Constructicons too following his example before the mountainside caved-in on both them and the Autobots at the breach of their own.

Weapon: Oxidating Laser
The Breach

From out of nowhere, Mixmaster found himself tagged by some sort of ion shot. One of the energy clusters impacted with his abdomen, slamming the green mech against the wall behind him as every output reading within his optical systems went screwy.

He dropped to the ground even as his internal systems attempted to recalibrate themselves. He really hated ionized weapons and what they could do. That's why he typically stayed the slag away from Starscream and tried not to torque him off.

"Not....gruh....fun," Mixmaster groaned, attempting to push himself back to his feet. He quickly came to the realization that the tremors he'd felt before hadn't been just something out of his imagination. The Seekers were clearing out too. If that wasn't a good cue, nothing else would be. Staggering as he found himself standing upright again, the Constructicon chemical engineer did what he could to hurry off after the fleeing Seekers, still clutching his midsection as if he'd just ingested some form of low-grade energon. He stopped and looked back to make sure that Scrapper, too, was coming.

Lore-lock caught the can of oil, First Aid tossed and gave it a gentle shake.
"It'll will do me just fine." The scout replied as he connected it to his hydraulic intake port. And now that his system was properly pressurized he quickly took stock of what was going on. The thing that caught his optics as critical was the hasty exit the cons on the other side of the breach were making.

So he crept towrds them just enough to be afforded a better view of the situation in that area. Scrap it all to Unicron! He thought and then opened up a general line to all bots he could.
>>This is going to be getting even harder. That explosive goo from Mixmaster, has completely destroyed any integrity of the ceiling over here. We desperately need to find an alternative exit and quickly.<<

He then moved just as carefully back into the fracas, taking careful aim at Ramplate's legs and feet with his cross bow. Ironhide and Blades may be more than capable, but long range support is generally accepted.

[OOC: Apologies for delays. Works been tough lately and I keep being low on brain power to write posts.]

Outside the Breach

Scrapper keeps firing until the last moment, then ducks back as Smokescreen fires at the explosive mix. His frame is rattled by the force of the blast travelling through the ground, his loose faceplate almost coming off.

As the Constructicon Leader picked himself up, he felt the continuing vibrations, and heard Bonecrushers assessment. Some people might think Bonecrusher was dumb, but he knew everything there was to know about breaking things, and Scrapper could tell that structural ingetrity wasn't secure for this area.

"Constructicons, form up and-" Scrapper stops as he sees Scavenger and Mixmaster leaving the smashed barricade for the exit, only for Mixmaster to be hit by ion fire and Scavenger to dive for cover after Thrust is struck by sniper fire.

"Slaggit, I said form up!! Bonecrusher, Hook!! Transform and charge!! We need to get out and get to our teammates before the Autobots recover!! If you see an Autobot, run it down!!" Scrapper follows his own advice and transforms, his scoop pushing aside rubble and Autobots as he heads towards the light through the smoke and dust, and falling chips of metal and stone...

Bounce Chamber

"R-roger, Ironhide!!" With the aid of several of the Protectobots, Hound follows after the field commander, his hologram projector cycling, and several more 'Autobots' appearing around the room. 'Gears' and 'Hoist' charge at Ramplate to help Jazz and Blades, and another Hardhead appears to cover the breach...only to dissappear as Smokescreen detonates something outside, sending a massive blast of flame and rubble through the gap and distrupting the hologram.

"Gah!! Gimme warning next time!!" Hound continues to follow Ironhide through the gap he and Hardhead are making, he and his holographic allies covering the others as freedom beckons...

Mixmaster chuckled, he didn't really know why, and practically stumbled in to his transformation. It was obviously the lingering effects of being hit with an ion shot. Fortunately it hadn't struck a critical area or he may have been a lot more incapacitated than he already was. He hated it anyway. His systems were still trying to get everything rebooted back to normal. Not exactly an elementary process.

Hitting the accelerator, the large cement mixer roared in to formation along with Scrapper as the Constructicons proceeded to plow their way out of this mess.

They'd bulldozed their way out of worse.

Mountain Side

Skywarp reappeared with Astrotrain and Blitzwing a safe distance away from the two breaches. Unfortunately, they were not safe from the mountain, itself. The volcano was rumbling more and more now and was likely to erupt at any moment. On top of that, a new explosion had rocked the first breach while an Autobot sniper had begun firing on the Seekers and the Constructicons, who then began a hasty retreat.

“I’ve got no time to lose," the teleporter said, knowing that there were still more ‘Cons within the base that needed to be evacuated. Without further delay, the prankster disappeared from sight.

Bounce Chamber

Skywarp reappeared within the bounce chamber not far from Baneblade, who appeared to be disoriented. There was a lot of action going on in the chamber as most of the Autobots were now located in that one room. It was like being trapped in a nest of hungry cyber-beasts, all gunning to make him their next snack.

With no time left to waste, Skywarp rushed to Baneblade’s side and grabbed a hold of him. “Time to go, big guy. The mountain’s coming down around us." The seeker then cocked his head around to see Ramplate a short distance away being attacked by numerous Autobots. Unfortunately, the tank-former was too far out of reach for Skywarp to grab him, as well. He’d have to come back for him. ‘Warp then activated his teleportation ability and vanished with Baneblade in tow.

******

Moments later, Skywarp reappeared above Ramplate in order to avoid being shot or tackled by one of the many Autobots around him. Deactivating his foot thrusters, the prankster dropped down on top of the large tank-former, who was currently attempting to ram himself into Ironhide. As much fun as that would be to witness, time was not on their side. “Sorry, Rammy, we gotta go!" Skywarp said as he teleported both himself and Ramplate out of the base.

Mountain Side

In a flash of light, Skywarp appeared once again on the mountain with Ramplate still underneath him. The seeker quickly jumped off the tank-former’s back and then looked at both him and Baneblade, who was close by where ‘Warp had just left him. “Sorry about the sudden teleportation, guys, but Thundercracker wanted me to get everyone out of the base as quickly as possible. Don’t worry, the uneasy sensation you’re feeling will pass soon."

Bounce Chamber

Hardhead and Smokescreen stood by the newly formed second breach as Jazz rushed up to them carrying a deactivated Prowl. The music-loving ‘Bot was clearly having trouble with the strategist’s weight. “I got him, Jazz," the big green mech said, taking Prowl and lifting him up over one shoulder. “Now, let’s get out of here before this place becomes our tomb."

“You don’t have to convince me, big guy," Smokescreen replied as he and Hardhead followed Hex and Axle out of the second breach and onto the mountain side beyond. The war veteran remained in robot mode in order to carry Prowl to safety while the diversion expert transformed to race car mode and sped after the field medic, who was hopefully heading towards a secure location.

Once he was sure Sideswipe moved on Hooligan crawled out from under the tree. His acting was convincing enough to let him be ignored as a threat. "Screw this fight." He walks over and picks up Space Case. "I'm following evac procedure. Smell you mechs later." He says as he flies them off to their fall back point.

First Aid wasn’t able to make out Perceptor’s entire message through the interference, but it sounded like he was on planet now. Hopefully that meant he would help out with their escape. He would just have to keep his fingers crossed as he led the way out.

The doctor transformed and drove out of the breach. He led Axle down the mountain towards the spot where they had bounced in. Once they were clear he signaled the Guardian’s computer and watched as Axle and Hot Spot were teleported back up to the ship. He briefly considered going up with them, but he knew he would be needed to direct people to this location outside the interference perimeter.

*

Ironhide was knocked back by Ramplate’s sudden maneuver but he was quick to push off and away from the Decepticon. Before he could do anything else Skywarp snagged his opponent and teleported out. He frowned at the now empty spot Ramplate had occupied. A good part of him had wanted another shot at the overgrown goon, but he knew they needed to get out of her as soon as possible.

The room was rocked by the detonation just outside of it, followed by more rumbling from the volcano. Ironhide saw Hardhead helping Jazz with Prowl. Groove and Streetwise were move quickly with Hound, taking him out the new opening even as he kept up holograms covering their retreat. The security expert grabbed a hold of Brawn and Lore-Lock, pushing them to the new breach as the cassette followed. “Get out of here now! This place ain’t gonna last much longer!"

*

Corridors

Blaster was rocked on his feet by an explosion from around the corner. “Well Sunny, if I had to guess those tunes would be provided from our pals inside the base. Think you can help me lay down some fire while we make a break for it to join them.

Sunstreaker groaned, his body still supported by Blaster. He lifted his gun in his undamaged hand. “It isn’t going to be accurate, but I can shoot."

Blaster smiled at the warrior, hefting his electro-scrambler gun. The two Autobots turned the corner and opened fire on the Constructicons as they picked their way through the wreckage.

After hustling the other Autobots out Ironhide poked his head out of the original breach. His optics widened as he spotted Blaster and Sunstreaker fighting their way over to him. “Ahhh scrap, guess we aren’t outta the fire yet." The Autobot switched his hands for his chemical emitters again and shot a spread of liquid nitrogen at the charging Constructicons. “Come on Blaster, move it! I only got so much of this stuff to fire!" He did his best to douse the floor and debris with the spray, giving it all a nice layer of ice that would hopefully slow down the Decepticons.

*

Hook wasn’t especially thrilled at the idea of charging at incoming Autobots. Maybe the likes of Bonecrusher, Scrapper of even Long Haul were built for that, but he was suited to more delicate work. He belonged in a lab, or at the very least a garage, not in a rapidly deteriorating battlefield. Still, this didn’t seem like a good time to argue. He transformed and drove behind Scrapper as they charged the Autobots.

At least he tried too until he hit a patch of ice created by Ironhide. He let out a yelp as he started to slide. He transformed and slammed into some debris. “This has not been my stellar cycle."

*

Blaster spotted Ironhide urging them on and smiled. “Looks like we got a ticket out of this joint pal and that’s fine with me. This show was getting a little too loud even for me." The Autobot dragged Sunstreaker towards the opening. He grunted as he took a couple of hits from Constructicons, but he pushed Sunstreaker ahead into Ironhide’s waiting arms. He then leapt through the breach himself, narrowly avoiding Scrapper’s shovel in the process.

*

Bounce Chamber

Ironhide dragged Sunstreaker away from the breach as Blaster dove through. He led both of the Autobots out through the new opening. “Blaster, can ya raise Prime for me? I ain’t gonna leave here until I’m sure he’s out and safe."

The three Autobots were making good time as they both helped carry Sunstreaker down the mountain. “I’ll give it a shot Ironhide. The interference isn’t quite so bad out here so I might be able to punch through."

>>”Blaster to Optimus Prime, I’m hear with old Ironhide. We’ve got all of the bots out of the base but we wanted to make sure you were heading for the exits too."<<

*

Outside the base

One of the emergency hatches popped open and Soundwave climbed out, followed quickly by Slipstream. The two Decepticons jogged away from the base as the ground shook again.

Soundwave was becoming increasing concerned about Megatron. He had not seen or heard from his leader in some time and the situation was becoming increasingly dire. As Slipstream transformed and rocketed up into the air the communication’s officer signaled his commander again. >>”Megatron, situation is critical and Decepticons and Autobots are both withdrawing."<<

*

Storage Room

Megatron grunted as Prime kneed him in the midsection. He did his best to recover, slamming his shoulder into Optimus and sending them both to the ground. Megatron staggered up to his feet as quickly as he could.

“Finally we agree on something Prime! This war will end today, it will end with your destruction! And your hapless Autobots hunted down and wiped out!" As he spoke he signaled Soundwave. >>”Acknowledged Soundwave. Issue the emergency recall order to the Ultrax. I will join you shortly, once Prime is dealt with."<<

The Decepticon leader then sent out a second signal, to the base’s main computer. While damaged, it was still active and responded. It deactivated all safety measures around the base’s powercore and began overpowering it. It was the standard method of self destruction for Decepticon bases.

Megatron laughed, “Enjoy these last few moments Prime, as they will be your last and they herald in my final victory!" He lashed out with his energo mace once more at the Autobot’s head, aiming to just keep him occupied long enough to make sure the detonation consumed him as he teleported to the Ultrax.

Skywarp sighed as he received the transmission from Skyjack requesting an evac from the base along with Snowcap. A teleporter's work is never done, the seeker thought as he turned back towards the mountain. It was then that his optics caught sight of a thick cloud of gray smoke rising up from the top of the volcano. It was either from the numerous explosions that had gone off within the base, itself, or Mount St. Helens was closer to erupting than ever before. Regardless, there wasn't an astrosecond to lose.

>>"I read you, Skyjack. I'm on my way."<< Skywarp responded as the mountain rumbled again, causing the seeker to almost topple over. Before that could happen, however, 'Warp teleported away.

Corridors

A flash of light filled the hallway as Skywarp appeared in front of Skyjack and an unconscious Snowcap. The teleporter quickly knelt down beside the white and grey seeker and gave him a once-over. "He appears to be in stasis lock. He'll be fine. Now, let's get the slag out of here shall we."

Skywarp laid one hand on Snowcap's inert form as he then reached over and grabbed a hold of Skyjack's arm. "Prepare yourself. This can be a bit jarring," the prankster warned as more light surrounded the three 'Cons before they all vanished from sight.

Mountain Side

Skywarp reappeared outside with Skyjack and Snowcap. "The effects of the trip should wear off quickly," the black and purple seeker commented as he stood up from his kneeling position and immediately opened a comm line to Thundercracker:

>>"Hey, buddy! I got everyone out of the base that I could. However, all that teleporting has drained my energon levels. I should be fine, but I doubt I could teleport again without a recharge."<<

Jazz sighed with relief as Hardhead lifted Prowl off of him.

"Whoo! That's a load off, thanks!" Jazz said, then nodded to the green mech in response to his statement about leaving.

He began to follow them outside, but then it hit him, Optimus was still inside!

Jazz had a problem now, Do I leave to help the rest of them, or do I stay with my friend?

Both options seemed selfish.

>>Optimus, I'll be frank, get out of there before this place blows!<< Jazz said through a comm link to Optimus Prime.

He looked back in the Bounce Chamber for any sign of Prime, while keeping an eye on the Volcano.

>>I'm keeping a foot on the door for you...<< Jazz said through the comm link again to Prime, hoping his friend would come soon.

Outside

Sideswipe moved around the Decepticon base until he came across the breach the rest of the Autobots were using as an escape route. A flash of gold caught his optics and he quickly picked up his pace until he was in a full sprint.

"Sunny! Sunny, are you okay? What happened?"

As Sideswipe reached his twin he took a firm hold of his arm and placed it over his shoulder. If anyone was going to help his brother it was going to be him.

Mountain Side

Nightraven watched as, one by one, Skywarp teleported the remaining Decepticons within the base out on the mountain side. She remained near her sister as finally the last mech was relocated. The Seeker femme rose from her kneeling position and made her way to the teleporter. After Skywarp dropped off Skyjack and Snowcap, Nightraven gently placed her hand on Skywarp’s forearm in order to get his attention.

“We can’t stay here. That volcano is going to erupt at any moment. How are we going to get out of here with so many wounded?"

Nightraven looked back at Hellion’s inert form and then back at the black and purple Seeker; a look of dread plastered on her face.

Outside

Hex watched as Axle and First Aid made it out of the breach and raced on to a secure location. The young mech remained at his position offering cover fire while Hardhead, Smokescreen, Ironhide, Groove, Streetwise, Hound and Jazz made their way outside. Once they were all out and on their way toward a secure position, Hex brought up the rear.

The silver mech stopped short of the tree line and looked back at the base. His optics dimmed as he kept vigil for Optimus Prime. He had no intention of leaving without a one on one with the Autobot leader.

Storage Room

Prime quickly got back up on his feet after being hit by Megatron’s shoulder that sent them to the floor. The Autobot leader’s optics narrowed as he took in his opponent’s banter.

“You’re wrong, Megatron. Even if you were to succeed in deactivating me my Autobots would press on. They would be fueled by their own determination to see you and your Decepticon plague eradicated."

When Prime finished speaking he opened a secure line to Blaster.

>>"Good job, Blaster. I’ll be along as soon as I can. In the meantime get everyone aboard the Guardian and rendezvous at the Ark-19. Also, inform Jazz that it’s crucial that every Autobot has vacated the immediate area. I want everyone safe, and that includes him, so no heroics."<<

He quickly closed the link in time to withdraw his hand and replace it with his energo ax in order to block Megatron’s devastating blow to his head. Prime stepped back slightly but then swung horizontally at the Decepticon’s midsection attempting to cleave his nemesis in two.

(OOC: With Deva's permission, I'll be NPCing Groove.)

Bounce Chamber

The opportunity to eviscerate Ramplate with his rotors never arose. Nor did the occasion to engage him in a strenuous contest of fisticuffs. In fact, Blades' fists were never within striking distance of the tank-former, courtesy of a particular Seeker endowed with a remarkable and rather convenient ability. Reflecting upon this issue with an open mind—and a touch of desperation—Blades almost wished he had applied the use of one of his rocket launchers to destroy Ramplate. It wasn't the most appealing method, but it certainly would have produced an effective outcome.

His features assembled into an obvious display of irritation. “Could this solar cycle suck any more than it already does?"

As if answering his question, the volcano released several violent tremors, causing Blades to sway slightly. He was fortunate it was only his balance experiencing the current conditions. He knew the worst was yet to come, should they continue to loiter in the Decepticons' headquarters.

“Why, yes it can."

Groove brought his form to an abrupt halt, his optics searching urgently for his team-mate. Quickly discovering his location, Groove wondered why Blades was just standing there; movement did not appear to be forthcoming. It seemed as if the red and white helicopter was deep in contemplation. Not the best of times to be occupied with such an activity.

The white motorcycle approached Blades with great speed. “Blades! What are you doing, man? We need to get out of here."

“You don't say, Groove."

Blades was still ruffled at the fact that a one-on-one confrontation with one of those waste of spare parts never eventuated. Honestly, there wasn't a single fight he was able to participate in. It also didn't help that Groove detested violence in its entirety, leaving Blades to ruminate in his frustration unaccompanied. But he never did expect Groove to understand. Not since he had first met the peace-loving Autobot many vorns ago.

Groove placed a hand on Blades' shoulder. “All right, then. Let's go."

The rough-and-tumble Protectobot nodded, attempting to conceal his sour mood. “Yeah, let's get the frag out of here."

The two Protectobots sprinted towards the new opening, fresh tremors aggressively announcing their arrivals. It would not be long now. Not long before the Decepticons found themselves without the protection of a base—and exposed to everything Earth, the planet they were supposedly striving to harvest its resources from, had to offer, including the Autobots.

A smirk formed on Blades' faceplate.
