Depths of Cybertron - Into the Abyss

Homeworld of the Transformers. Drained and ravaged by thousands of vorns of civil war, Cybertron is a mere barren husk of once beautiful and thriving cybernetic world. While recovered enough to allow Transformers to move on its surface once again, it is still plagued by ion storms and any Transformer unfortunate enough to venture there without energon supply of their own is certain to face a stasis lock. - Cybertron forum is currently inactive.

At least Shockwave provided me a device to protect myself from the plasma surge last time I was here. And now you want us to catch those bolts with risk of being deactivated. Skullcruncher thought as Thunderwing explained what he had in mind. Too bad that device could take just that one surge.

"Weirdwolf?" Skullcruncher spoke up as the tracker returned from the chamber with his cube already filled. "Do me a favor and fill a cube or two for me?"

Weirdwolf turned to look at his larger comrade, grinning devilishly. "Too slow are we? Save you I shall this time. A favor you will owe to Weirdwolf."

"Sure. Favor for favor. I can deal with that." Skullcruncher grunted and reached to grab the full cube from Weirdwolf who in turn picked an empty one and dashed back into the chamber. With series of fancy moves, the tracker caught another bolt of plasma with little trouble into the cube he was holding. Only few astroseconds later, Weirdwolf was already back in safety. "Easy enough that was, I-"

A scream of pure agony from Blackwind interrupted Weirdwolf, who turned quickly on his feet to see what was happened. Blackwind was down, her body smoldering from a hit from a plasma bolt. "Not again, cannot she after herself look at all?"

Skullcruncher just shook his head as a reply to his partner in crime. Neither moved to help, it would probably resulted in just more Decepticons being injured. Given Thunderwing was already so close to her, they left the enigmatic scientist play a hero.

Thunderwing carefully lead the way towards the plasma chamber. He took time to study the rippling bolts of energy, trying to find a pattern in their motion. He wanted to be able to catch a bolt quickly and safely in the cube rather then to hold it out and count on luck that a bolt would strike it rather then himself. It didn’t take too long for the scientist to find the pattern and collect a bolt inside of the cube.

The cube pulsated with a pink glow, brighter then just standard energon. Occasionally a ripple of various colors would pass through it, the plasma energy inside only just contained by his reinforced cube generator. Thunderwing stared at the cube as he backed away from the chamber. He hoped there would be some of it left after Shockwave’s experiments so that he could examine it.

Darkwing and Dreadwind reluctantly took up their cubes and crept towards the chamber. They didn’t need to exchange words to know what the other was thinking. This was going to be it, killed by a stray plasma bolt and left to rust at the core of Cybertron. They walked up to the chamber next to each other and held out the cubes in their arms as far as they could reach, their heads turned away from the inevitable doom that awaited them.

Fortunately for them both the bolts struck the cubes. It took a moment for either of them to realize what had happened. Darkwing was the first to look. He stood dumbfounded for a moment before quickly moving away from the chamber. Dreadwind waited for another moment before looking and quickly followed.

“You could have told me it had worked rather then just leave me there!" He snapped at Darkwing. “I should have known you would leave me to die."

Darkwing shrugged his shoulders. “Survival of the fittest."

Everyone’s attention was quickly drawn by the screams from Blackwind. The plasma energy rolled over her and she collapsed in a smoking heap at their feet.

“I knew it! I knew someone was going to die on this mission!" Dreadwind shouted.

Thunderwing wasted no time in moving towards her. His sensors picked up her spark still functioning inside of her, but it looked like several other critical systems had been heavily damaged or destroyed. She would need immediate repairs if she were to survive.

“Darkwing, Dreadwind, take my and Blackwind’s cubes. You two will take point as we move back to the surface. Use your combined mode if necessary, but we are flying to the surface. The mission is complete and I see no reason to prolong it and risk further injuries when it is unnecessary. Blast us a clear path if necessary." He carefully scooped up the wounded femme. “I will carry Blackwind and follow with Weirdwolf and Skullcruncher." Holding the seeker tightly but carefully he walked out of the room and back into the tunnels, the two other fliers following quickly behind.

Thunderwing produced a hose from his right arm as they walked, attaching it to an input valve on Blackwind’s stomach. He began pumping energon directly into her system, using his own systems to circulate it to her spark and other critical systems. It wouldn’t be enough to get her functional, but it would maintain her in a sort of stasis. Hopefully that would be enough. He did not want to lose someone he found so valuable, both to the empire and himself.

Darkwing and Dreadwind stowed the cubes in their cockpits before transforming, this time combining into their superjet mode. Neither of them was particularly fond of the combination, Darkwing in particular, but he kept his mouth shut. He didn’t feel that complaints would be welcome at this time. They both also had to admit that the combined mode was more powerful and getting to the surface more quickly sounded good to them. The combined fliers blasted off, heading up the tunnel they had used before.

Thunderwing unfolded his wings, giving him additional maneuverability and thrust for the flight, this time with the added weight of Blackwind. His alternate mode’s engines roared to life on his back and he lifted off, flying after Darkwing and Dreadwind.

Giving each other a puzzled glance over the actions of Thunderwing, the two Decepticons left behind by their faster comrades finished what they had come for. Weirdwolf loaded the cubes left behind by Blackwind and Thunderwing on Skullcruncher's arms before grabbing his own two cubes.

"You think they bother to wait for us?" Skullcruncher asked, knowing full well that neither of the two could fly any faster than 300 mph in their robot modes - speed significantly slower than that of Thunderwing's even with the scientist carrying Blackwind.

"By following only learn we can." Weirdwolf said and turned his gaze upwards and activating the thrusters in his feet.

"Hrmph. No reason to waste time down here I suppose." Skullcruncher grunted and launched himself into the air after his only real friend within Decepticon ranks.

Thunderwing trailed behind the combined form of Darkwing and Dreadwind, Blackwind still cradled in his arms. From what little he knew of the two other fliers he had assumed they would take a decent lead now. He hoped that there firepower was increased in this mode. He wanted to be able to blast or smash through any obstacles in their way.

He turned his scans back towards Weirdwolf and Skullcruncher who seemed to be delaying for some reason. He wasn’t sure what the two warriors had to discuss, and Darkwing and Dreadwind had taken on the extra cubes as he had ordered. The fact that they were slower in the air then the rest of them meant they should have scrambled immediately to join them. Speed was of the essence now, for Blackwind’s sake and for the stability of the samples.

With that his thoughts turned to Blackwind. She seemed to be stable enough for now. His fuel was still flowing into her and circulating through her systems. It was enough to keep her mental circuits functioning. That would be enough to keep her memory active and from being wiped out. Hopefully it would be enough to keep her cognitive functions working on an unconscious level. Still he would need to get her to a repair facility as soon as possible to make sure she could regain full functionality. He carefully brushed some scorched metal away off of her face.

Darkwing and Dreadwind opened fire, blasting through some debris and walls and clearing out an opening for the rest of them to follow. The Decepticons roared through the openings the combined fliers made. They poured more firepower ahead of them and Thunderwing dodged the debris. At least with one last blast at a weakened portion of the surface blew open a hole revealing the dark sky above sprinkled with stars.

Darkwing and Dreadwind flew out of the opening, breaking apart into their separate vehicle modes. Thunderwing followed shortly thereafter. >>”Darkwing, Dreadwind, Skullcruncher, Weirdwolf, once you’ve reached the surface head for the Tower. Deliver the cubes to Shockwave’s laboratory. I will take Blackwind for repairs. You may all go to recharge and repair whatever damage you might have taken."<<
