Fuel Raid

Approaching Falin, Alaska

Astrotrain would have rolled his eyes at Skywarp’s story if he could. >>”Yeah, that was a heck of a story Skywarp. It’s pretty easy to beat up a bunch of Autobots when you can just teleport around. It’s a little tougher when you have to actually worry about taking hits or actually facing your enemies."<<

The triplechanger did a quick check of his scanners. The Decepticons were finally approaching their designated target. It looked like he was going to have to corral the unruly warriors. They were here to recover some flammable fuel. It would be all to easy for them to accidentally blow it up along with the small city.

>>”Anyway, it looks like we’re approaching our target. Soundwave sent me the coordinates of the refinery. Its not a major station, so we need to be careful not to blow it up. I’m sending you the coordinates of the station. Try and keep a perimeter around it. Other than that feel free to level the city, but remember, we are still infiltrating. I’m sure the fleshbags will investigate what happened here so maybe cause some avalanches or fires or something so it looks natural. Once the place is slagged will grab the fuel and hit the afterburners."<<

Approaching Falin, Alaska

Skywarp’s circuits began to seethe as Astrotrain downplayed his capabilities and insinuated that he was a coward for not supposedly facing his enemies and, instead, teleporting out of the way. To ‘Warp it was smarter to ellude an oncoming laserblast instead of taking a hit and suffering potentially severe damage. But a mech like Astrotrain wouldn’t understand such a thing. He was only a transport, after all, and did not have the aerial skills that ‘Warp and the other seekers possessed.

>>Well, it’s not my fault you can’t teleport, Astrotrain. Don’t blame me for being able to better avoid a hit. At least I know how to pick an alt mode that acutally blends in. I mean, you’re a fraggin’ space shuttle! Not exactly something the fleshbags of this world see every day. So much for infiltration!<<

Skywarp felt better now that he had put the triplechanger in his place. He could easily fly rings around the Deception transport and he knew it, too. Having said his peace, Skywarp turned his attention to the small town of Falin. He intended to be the first one to attack the human settlement, not wanting the others to have all the fun and leaving very little for him to destroy. ‘Warp received the refinery coordinates from Astrotrain and quickly set his course. >>Alright, boys! I’ll race ya there!<< When he was within a 2 mile range, the teleporter vanished with a flash and a pop.

Over Falin, Alaska

Reappearing above the town, Skywarp readied his missiles. He made several passes over the multitude of flesh sacks that were scurrying about below just to shake them up a bit. Many had stopped and were just standing around, staring up at the seeker in awe. They were probably wondering why a jet fighter would be flying so low over their tiny town. Very soon they would learn the horrible reason.

Stupid humans! That’s right, just stand there while I annihilate you! Ha! Ha! Time to get this party started! Skywarp came around into attack position and unleashed a barrage of his heat-seekers down upon the previously quiet town.

Thrust watched as Skywarp teleported away.

That's it, Skywarp! Thrust thought to himself, you get there first! You draw their opening volleys...why everyone is focused on you, they will be easy targets for me!

Thurst sped up as much as his engines would allow in the infiltration part of the plan. If he were given free reign to use his abilities he could have easilly made the two miles before Skywarp finished teleporting.

Over Falin

Thrust watched with interest as Skywarp flew so recklessly low to the ground.

looks like fun! Hope you don't mind if I join in! Thrust hit his accelerators again. He had no distinctive flight path. No specific target. He didn't even open fire. However, the mini sonic booms his engines left in his wake was clear as day. Roofs were blown off house, windows shattered, people lifted right off the ground, cars flying through the air as if they were toys. After his initial flight over the small town, Thrust eased back.

I better wait for the rest of the slow pokes to get here. I am unfamiliar with hu-man defense capabilities...I'll let the others be fodder, just in case! Thrust thought to himself as he climbed into the atmosphere. Not too high though, he could easily make another quick descent if necessary.

Over Falin

Blitzwing burst through the clouds, and dived straight for the ground. He aimed for athe largest building in his range: a protoform repair structure. With all his force, he crashed through the roof and rammed nose first into the facility, transforming to tank mode as he fell. He landed on the ground with a satisfying "THUD!"

Falin

Naturally, the structure collapsed on him. For the average 'con, this would be a bit of a setback. But for Blitzwing, this was just a part of the plan. Already, aid vehicles had showed up to help the survivors and carry away the dead. All Blitzwing had to do was wait for one to get within range...

Like now.

Blitzwing's cannon roared as it dispensed a massive shell, destroying the nearest ambulance. Frightened humans ran for their lives as he emerged from the wreckage, picking off each fleeing vehicle he could. This is perfect. All I need is some self-righteous 'bots to smash...

Over Falin, Alaska

Astrotrain snickered. >>”Oh yeah, I bet you nearly blew a cerebral circuit trying to figure out your alt mode Skywarp. What did you do, take one look at Starscream and decide you liked black better than red?"<<

Skywarp thought he was hot slag. Usually Astrotrain didn’t care too much. He even enjoyed most of his pranks. He didn’t like it when the Decepticon turned on him though, especially when he could just teleport away before he could rearrange his face for him. He was the strongest and toughest of the Decepticons on this world. Why any of the others would want to mess with him was beyond his imagining. Of course, no one had ever accused seekers of being bright.

The space shuttle dipped down over the city. A cannon appeared from the belly of the ship and began raining destruction down upon the helpless city. The triplechanger quickly stitched a path of destruction around their target, not trusting the other Decepticons to avoid blowing it up. At least this way he would be able to control any destruction near it. The others would likely accidentally blow it up otherwise.

The transport specialist transformed and landed next to the refinery. He ignored the various humans running in terror from him. The others would make sure they didn’t get away. He had a bigger target in mind. The Decepticon began scooping up the massive fuel tanks, pinching off the pipes at the end to avoid the precious contents from spilling out. >>”When you guys are done knocking the place down you can come down here and load me up with these fuel tanks. If we don’t come back with enough to make this raid worthwhile Starscream will have our afts."<<

Skywarp swooped down over the small city, unleashing more rockets upon the helpless meat sacks below. They scattered in all directions like furious insects as explosions went off around them. Many fell like the pathetic creatures that they were while others managed to escape to the safety of surrounding buildings. But those buildings would not remain safe for long as Skywarp descended again, this time firing missiles into the brick and wood structures, shattering them into a million small fragments. The humans inside never knew what hit them.

The black and purple seeker wondered where everyone else was. Even though the teleporter had arrived first thanks to his special abilities, the others should have caught up by now. Just then, both Astrotrain and Blitzwing arrived, the latter transforming to tank mode after crashing down through a building. ‘Warp always thought ol’ Blitz was a little crazy, and that little maneuver hadn’t changed his mind.

Meanwhile, Astrotrain bellowed a new insult in Skywarp’s direction. The transport specialist thought he was a big shot, but he would never have the flight capabilities of a seeker and certainly not that of Skywarp. >>Yeah, whatever Astrotrain! I can still fly rings around you without a second thought.<< With that said, ‘Warp continued his barrage on the town and it’s puny inhabitants until he received another comm message from Astrotrain a short time later. This time it was not an insult, but a request to load him up with the fuel tanks he had procured from the refinery.

Not seeing anyone one else in the vicinity, Skywarp reluctantly descended towards the triplechanger and transformed into robot mode. Landing near the refinery, the seeker picked up one of the fuel tanks and walked over to Astrotrain. “Okay, tough guy, transform to your shuttle mode, and I’ll load you up."

Thrust flew high above the town. He enjoyed watching the others attack the bipeds, and he wanted to make sure that no one was moutning a well structured counter attack. Once he thought the coast was clear he decided to descend. This was no normal descent however.

As Thrust descended he turned his after burners up as high as they would go and revved his engines to the red line. As he quickly approached the ground in a straight l;ine he left a vapor trail so thick it looked like an asteroid falling to Earth. Moments before Thrust would've crashed into the ground, he pulled up and flew in a perfect straight line through the main street of Falin, Alaska; literally barely four feet from the street. As he rocketed past at Mach 2, the buildings stood. Only a second or two later, when the sonic boom finally kicked in, the buildings collapsed upon themselves, crushing anyone in them to a horrid death. Thrust admired his handiwork.

He called out to any other 'cons in the area: "That is how it is done gentlemen! All that glorious death and destruction...not even a shot a fired! It's all about finese!"

Thrust looked over to see Skywarp responding to Astrotrain's request to be loaded. He figured he might as well help too. He flew on down, landed and began getting to work.
"Don't worry Train... with me here, this will be done in a micro-moment!"

Thurst began working, faster than Skywarp, as Thrust didn't expend any energy on weapons devestating the town, he had plenty to spare for remedial tasks. As he worked he realized he hadn't heard anything from Blitzwing in a while, he started spinning one of his VTOL engines as he called out to Blitzwing:

"Hey Blitz! why don't you throw, or better yet fire, one of those flesh creatures into my engines! I better it will make a wonderful noise...not to mention create a mess!"

Thrust wanted to play both sides against one another...Help Skywarp do the remedial work, out of a sign of respect, and keep 'Warp happy. But also keep Blitzwing entertained. If Blitzwing is happy and distracted with destruction, he won't bother Thrust. Thrust also wanted to see if Blitzwing would remember Skywarp's hatred of humans...having a human thrown into Thrust's engines would surely splatter fluids onto Skywarp. Skywarp would be happy he got help loading Astro train, Blitzwing would be entertained by the splatter, and even more so to Skywarp's reaction. If Thrust wanted to advance himself in the heirarchy, he would have to keep everyone mad at each other...except for mad at Thrust...

Falin

Blitzwing pondered Thrust's request. One one hand, It was obvious to see he was being played against Skywarp. Then again, it would be funny. What the frag. May as well do it.

As he rampaged through the city, he noticed a human man, restrained on a mobile bed being pushed by a female. He pulled up in front of them, and then went to robot mode. As he transformed, the woman stopped and stared at him in shock. He leaned down so they were roughly face to face. His mouth formed an evil grin as he Said to her in one of the few human phrases he knew, "Hellllllllooooooooo, nurse!" before crushing her with his fist and laughing maniacally.

Taking the man-on-a-bed, he stood up. Blitzwing cocked his arm back and aimed carefully. His arm accelerated forward, and, at the perfect time, he let go. The terrified human shot forward letting out a horrid scream, flying towards Thrust's engines. It was beautiful.

Astrotrain transformed into his shuttle mode. He quickly opened the doors to his cargo compartment. He wasn’t too eager to be carrying all of this fuel back to base. While he was a transport specialist, fuel wasn’t his usual cargo. He’d rather be carrying equipment or even other Decepticons around. At the very least they didn’t have a tendency to be as combustible as the fossil fuel tanks they were loading him down with. Of course even that wasn’t as bad as being loaded up with raw energon cubes. Take a sharp turn with a cargo full of those and they’d be picking up what was left of you for scrap metal.

The triplechanger let out a quiet sigh. ‘Where was Octane when you needed him, this was his job,' he thought to himself.

The Decepticon could only sit in his alternate mode as the others loaded him down. He wasn’t particularly happy about the situation, but it was better than simply sitting around base. At least he was out in the field with other Decepticons, despite how annoying they could be. He watched as Blitzwing tossed one of the humans at Thrust.

Thrust laughed has cone head off when Blitzwing threw the biped into his spinning engine. The rush of it all was beautiful! The scream of the biped as he was slung through the air...the wonderful sound his bones and liquids made in the engine, and of course the fantastic splatter it made all over the place.

Thrust listened closely however when Astro Train spoke to them. It was hard not to pay attention, with his booming voice and everything. He took a quick look at the town and how devestated it was.

"I wouldn't worry to much about that Choo-Choo brain! Nothing could survive the attorcity we so brilliantly laid down upon them!" Thrust went back to work. The sooner they had Astro Train loaded, the sooner Thrust would be in the air again, brekaing sound barriers.

Astrotrain quickly found himself getting bored. He wasn’t quite as easily amused as the other Decepticons were. Killing a few of the little fleshlings might be fun, but it got old kind of quick. There really wasn’t much challenge in it, or sense of satisfaction. It wasn’t like killing Autobots. You had to work at that at least. Even the weaker ones tended to put up a bit of a fight. He couldn’t even remember the last time he had really fought one.

“Alright guys I think that’s enough. Lets get the slag out of here and don’t forget to blow up this refinery behind us." The triplechanger sealed his hangar doors and fired up his engines, roaring down the road ahead of him and lifting off into the air. As unexciting as it might have all been at least he did get out of the base. Hopefully it would the start of a new trend.

Falin, Alaska – Near Refinery

Skywarp finished loading up Astrotrain with fuel tanks and was about to take to the sky again when he noticed a fleshling fly past his optics. Landing directly in Thrust’s spinning engine, the carbon-based life form was instantly shredded, splattering disgusting goop all over the teleporter. ‘Warp had managed to get his left arm up to block, but it was not enough to spare him from being slimed.

“Slag it! Thanks a lot guys!" Skywarp yelled at Thrust and Blitzwing as he tried to wipe away the organic matter that now covered a good potion of his left side. “I just disinfected the interior of my cockpit from one of those gross flesh sacks and now my exterior is covered in their sludge! Yuck!"

Before the seeker was able to finish cleaning himself off, Astrotrain spoke up and reminded them to destroy the refinery before heading back to base. That suited Skywarp just fine. Anything was better than being on the ground near Thrust and Blitzwing as they played ‘fling the human into the engine’.

Having gotten most of the crud off himself, ‘Warp transformed and took to the air. He quickly came into attack position and fired several rockets at random points throughout the refinery. Within astroseconds, multiple explosions erupted all over the installation, consuming the entire area in a fiery inferno.

Falin

What the frag.... Blitzwing had been sure the human was strapped into his bed. The metal thing should have jammed Thrust'sengines. Ah, well, guess I'll have to find another way to cut this guy down to size. If a joke failed, it would annoy Blitzwing to no end. He just had to have a way to get back at them. It would nag at him, like a bad itch, just waiting to be scratched.

Blitzwing was all ready to leave, but he realized there was one last thing to do. Grabbing a barrel that Skywarp had missed, he poured it around the town's perimeter. Then, he took a pice of a burning building and stuck it in the oil. It burst into flames, effectively creating a wall of fire surrounding the town. Better safe than sorry. Doing that, he transformed to jet mode, and went to rejoin the others.

Thrust had a good luagh to himself at Skywarp's reaction to being sprayed with biped goo! He thought it was hilarious, even more so that Blitzwing's attempt to jam his engines failed.

Thrust thought to himself: 'Hmmppff...human alloys jamming MY engines? Inconceivable! This probably annoys Blitzwing to no end...ah well, I'll just have to be double cautious in dealing with him as of late. He'll try to get even...there is no doubt in that.'

Thrust reveled for a second in this. Every other 'con thinks Thrust some speed obsessed nit-wit. They do not quite understand that under all his boasting about being the fastest there is actually quite an intellectual processor at work. They will ALL learn that lesson eventually. Someday. For now, he is quite happy as Starscream's lackey...

As Thrust was lost in thought he heard Bltizwing setting the town ablaze. Thrust realized he was the last one lef tin the town! No bother to him though. He transformed and took off, catching the rest of the Decepticons without even breaking a sweat. He took point in front of Astrotrain and signaled to him.

"Careful big fella! You got a load of volatile energon in you! I'll take point and keep scanning for enemy bogeys. We don't want you doing any fancy flying with that cargo! I also don't see the others realizing this...and they'll treat the whol;e situation as a joke."

Thrust meant the comment as a warning. He understood the situation heavilly. He also meant it as a taunt to Astro train. A nice way of disguising that he is a transport. Nothing more...nothing less. Thrust only wondered if ol' Choo-choo brain would get it.

Leaving Falin

Astrotrain ignored the last bits of chatter and banter from the seekers. They never did seem to shut up. They brought out the worst in him though. He’d been wasting his time bantering back and forth with the fools. He didn’t like getting dragged down to their level and it didn’t help that Blitzwing reveled in the some nonsense too. They weren’t just common soldiers, they were triplechangers. They should act better than the common fly boys.

He took a quick peek at his sensors. Falin was a flaming wreck He doubted any humans could make it out of that alive. At least it had been some fun getting out of the base and helping to cause some destruction. It wasn’t great, not since he had been busy loading up on fuel, but it was better than nothing. Maybe next time there would be some actual Autobots to fight.

The triplechanger radioed ahead to base as the group of Decepticons rocketed away from the devastated town.
