Nacelle was about to respond to Slipstream's comment to him but Aegis broke the silence.

Foximus wrote:Deck 9 – Outer Corridors

“Alright…” Aegis finally managed, shaking himself from his reverie, “Let us see what more we can learn.” He said, striding after Slipstream, looking to Nacelle with his blue optics curiously. “Pardon me, I failed to greet you, Nacelle. I hope you can forgive me.”


Nacelle looked towards him and mumbled, "It is fine, Aegis."

He then followed Slipstream and Aegis. When they reached their destination, he caught sight of Slipstream's look towards him, which he could careless since he did not trust her at all.

Foximus wrote:One mech, however, stormed away from them, looking mightily displeased. Thunderwing. “Thunderwing, sir,” Aegis called out, “Did something happen?” he asked in reference to how upset the warlord appeared to be. “How fares Lord Megatron?”


He remained quiet and waited for Thunderwing to respond to Aegis' questions about Lord Megatron.

Flywheels had bickered too much to agree to go into the fight against Megatron. Instead, both sides made a truce- He'd just stand and watch the brutal fight. And watch he did.

He gasped in horror as he saw Razorclaw's sword embed itself into their leader's leg. The dread grew when they/he saw Megatron fall to the ground. He could hardly believe what was going on. The fight within him started again when Megatron fell, as the surrounding 'Cons dogpiled him. Part of him wondered what had seemed to weaken him, the other part didn't care and just wanted to get into the fight.

Finally, both of them agreed that this was too much to handle and Flywheels turned around and retreated, splitting into his to different forms. Quickly he flew and drove down the corridors back to his quarters. If Command saw a need for his help, they'd message him.

He stayed there for a little while when his comms sparked to life.

Oh, thank Primus, Battletrap.

Oh, Primus... Battletrap.

Dude, he's our friend.

You said "idiot we tolerate" wrong.

...you're the idiot.

You literally just called yourself an idiot.

Flywheels opened his comm. >>"Yo, dude. I'm back at corridors. We- I had to get away from the fight. What's up? We got new orders?"<<

Deck 9--Outer Corridors

The mechanoids within his immediate vicinity had cleared a path as soon as the Warlord of Valckasta had exited Shockwave's laboratory. But that did not prevent him from being addressed. The effrontery was amazing. Some casual warrior would never have thought to address him directly back in the halls of his progenitor in the glory days of Valckasta. How times had changed.

“Thunderwing, sir. Did something happen? How fares Lord Megatron?”

Thunderwing looked at the mech dismissively, almost saying nothing before thinking better of it.

"Did something happen? Look around you, warrior. Megatron almost destroyed this vessel and everyone aboard. For what reason? I do not know. There is only one thing I know to be certain at this juncture....the uncertainty of our destiny."

Thunderwing spared a brief glance at the others who were nearby before turning and stalking off in the direction of the biometics laboratory that he had carved out as something of a personal workstation.

Once Scrapper and the other Constructicons had arrived within the walls of the medical bay, he saw that there were more injured mechanoids there than he had seen in some time. Scrapper made a beeline for Hook. The surgeon was clearly already torso-deep in repairs.

"Sit-rep?" Scrapper asked. Hook looked up. The expression on his face was angry, but once he recognized it was Scrapper, it softened noticeably.

"Erm...well...as you can see, we're more than a bit needed. I've got my hands full with this one. But I've got some impatient Combaticons that could use some assistance and....that Seeker over there stumbled in a short time ago and collapsed to the floor. You pick," Hook huffed.

Scrapper looked at the Combaticons.

"Alright....Scav, Mixmaster, see what you can do for our fine comrades here. Let me have a look at our Seeker friend," Scrapper said as he approached the fallen light purple and gray Seeker. "Let's see....designation Amethyst. What happened to you out there?"

Not much had been said by the others in the Medbay. The Constructicons seemed happy to be united. They were a bunch of mechs that Amethyst had a lot of respect for, and sure didn't want to cross their paths...Devastator could literally crush him in one hand or easily rip him into pieces, and that wasn't a fate that this Seeker desired. Amethyst sat there quietly and listened, watching intently until one of the Constructicons, Scrapper, came over to inquire what had happened to him.

Amethyst struggled for words, coughing and then managed to say with a stammer, "Weapons...malfunction. Overheated..... right gun exploded.....fire...crash.", he said. His head hurt a lot, making speech difficult for him. Wouldn't anyone who crashed from a high altitude into the far below ground have a massive headache? Definitely. He waited for Scrapper to reply.

"Weapons malfunction, mm?" Scrapper mused out loud, rubbing the chin structure of his faceplate as he examined the extent of Amethyst's injuries.

"Well, let's get you on to a berth so I can assess these damages more directly," he said, offering a hand of assistance to the Seeker. This one wasn't as stereotypically braggadocious as most of his Seeker ilk, so he had garnered a small but additional portion of the Constructicon Commander's limited sympathy.

"Been neglecting your regularly scheduled weapons maintenance regimen?"

Doomshot came to a halt as he entered the room. He didn't transform from his alt mode at first, so as to avoid any sort of distraction from surveying the room. There were mechs flocking out, but he didn't see Megatron. At least from his angle. He transformed finally, and turned his stiff head from one side of the room to the other.

"Hmm.." Doomshot simply grunted. He then noticed a Predacon; specifically Divebomb; in the room seeming to neglect following the group of Decepticons ahead.

Divebomb turned to see the group who had just entered with Doomshot, and smirked slightly.

Doomshot walked to Divebomb, stiffly and methodically, and lowered his cold green optics down to where the Predacon could see them.

"Megatron. Where is he?" inquired Doomshot.

Divebomb looked back towards Thunderwing, and then hesitantly spoke, "Megatron is being addressed to."

Doomshot narrowed his optics. A cold hard stare. He then spoke again after a while of staring intently, and said in a deep tone, "Where is he."

Divebomb became nervous, but he was willing to fight if he needed to. He couldn't exactly dismantle Megatron before, but he would love to tear apart a traitor now for the fun of it.

"I've not been told yet if I should tell you anything," responded Divebomb, "for all I know, Megatron might kill me later if anyone else knew."

Doomshot quickly and without hesitation, grabbed Divebomb's head with his large hand.

"You're hiding something," said Doomshot.

Divebomb squinted his optics in a disgruntled sort of expression, and looked back towards Thunderwing. The latter was of higher rank, so Divebomb didn't want to say anything unless Thunderwing gave some assemblance of an "okay".

Just then however, Thunderwing spoke aloud about Megatron's rampage. Well, that was more than an okay, but Divebomb was happy he didn't have to say it himself.

"You're a smart one," said Divebomb to Doomshot, "Gonna get yourself in the brig sometime with those kind of overreactions."

Doomshot tightened his grip slightly around Divebomb's cranium. He needed more info.

"See? It wasn't so hard for Thunderwing. Tell me more about this... 'rampage' our dear leader had."

Amethyst felt relieved and thankful to be alive after his ordeal (and in fact he could be in helluva worse condition as well), but that didn't help him from feeling foolish about his painful situation either. He was glad that the Constructicon Commander was helping him. When Scrapper offered him a hand, the Seeker accepted the assistance. It would have been a struggle to stand back up in this state otherwise, and he wasn't above getting help when he needed it. From here he'd look about for the platform in which Scrapper said about, moving towards it with stiffened joints and a it of difficulty. He clenched his teeth, gritting back the feelings of pain and sucking it up. He had no time to cry over this. He was a warrior to the Decepticon cause, and this was but a setback, and all his own fault.

"Correct, Sir. I thought...... I could go the battle.... without any malfunctions occurring.", he said. In his head to himself he thought, 'Stupid, stupid, stupid. Grrrr! Next time, I can't be so neglectful of myself.'

Combaticons were overrated. Bonecrusher snarled as he heard the slithery slags complaining about their scratched paint and dented rotor blades. Bonecrusher was a real warrior who never gave up until he was literally torn to pieces. He had no sympathy for them, especially while he was currently torn down the middle of his torso, writhing in pain.

"C- Combaticon... slags," said Bonecrusher, "You... FILTHY... FRAGS... are INSULTS to the Decepticons! Nghh..."

Bonecrusher moaned in pain and laid his head back down, letting Hook work on repairs once again.

"Correct, Sir. I thought...... I could go the battle.... without any malfunctions occurring," Amethyst said, answering Scrapper's query. Typical Seeker. Head focused on the battle, not on the little things that helped make a battle more winnable besides prowess on the battlefield. Having weapons that would function as they were designed to was pretty important.

"Well, no more of that kind of thinking in the future. High Command issues maintenance regimens for a reason. Follow them. Otherwise you're going to get decomissioned, and we all know what Starscream tends to do with Seekers who have no use to him on the battlefield."

Scrapper began to remove some of the more heavily damage pieces and inoperable weapons from Amethyst's frame. He then started to seal off a fuel pump that had been damaged in the fire.

"Unfortunately, some of this equipment and armor is damaged beyond repair. Fortunately, there are a lot of Seekers in the empire, so replacements are abundant."

Having recovered as well as could be hoped for from his temporary bout of bounce sickness, Ratbat soared his way through the Thanatos' winding corridors. His destination? Soundwave.

There was clearly more going on here than the Fuel Scout and former senator was aware of and he wanted to be caught up to speed with haste.

As Amethyst lay there and let Scrapper diagnose his condition, etc, he began to panic. Some of the damage was repairable, but some was not. It was really bad news to his audio receivers. 'No, no, no, no, no!' Amethyst sat up in his panic, staring into the optic visor of the Constructicon, obviously terrified, and he said, "Isn't there anything you can do?! If there isn't, kill me now!! It was a demand. He couldn't bare to face the Air Commander knowing he would have irreparable parts. He was as good as dead if there was no way to fix him, and he'd rather die now than later if that was the case.

Things can’t get much worse. Thrust shook his head as he made his way through the corridors toward the medical bay. It’d taken a few laps around the Thanatos to clear his processors, but he still wasn’t happy with being left out of the mission with his fellow seekers. His presence would’ve made things a lot easier.

His angst didn’t improve with the reports of Megatron’s… return? Normally the first one to jump at the chance to battle, Thrust wanted no part in subduing their leader and was grateful he hadn’t been assigned to the teams sent to contain him, though he knew it would’ve been a matter of time until he was had they not subdued Megatron.

Who in their right processor would want to face him? The thought send a power surge through his servos, causing a slight shudder.

With his mind focused on other things, he was surprised to find himself already standing in front of the medical bay entrance. Smirking, he decided to wait on the returning seekers and stepped inside as the door slid open. With any luck, he’d fine points he could point to as to why he should’ve gone and spend less time twiddling his transistors.

As Scrapper worked, the Seeker suddenly sat up, terror in his optics.

"Isn't there anything you can do?! If there isn't, kill me now!!" Amethyst blurted out, forcing Scrapper to consider what he'd said. Oh yes. "Replacements". Amethyst must have taken that to mean replacement Seekers. And while that was certainly true, it wasn't what Scrapper had meant. Simply that the Decepticon war machine had long ago figured out the necessity of keeping Seeker parts around and/or easy to fabricate given the sheer number of them that were spread around the Decepticon empire.

"Relax," Scrapper said, holding up a hand to pause Amethyst's reaction. "Just replacement parts. A process which is easy enough for the likes of a Constructicon. You don't need to worry about being sent to the scrapheap yet. Though...miss another maintenance regimen and you might, heh."

Scrapper walked over to the fabrication bay and began entering specifications for the types of parts he would need.

"C- Combaticon... slags. You... FILTHY... FRAGS... are INSULTS to the Decepticons! Nghh..." Bonecrusher suddenly burst out, instantly pulling Vortex's attention in his direction.

"Yeah, frag you too, buddy," Vortex scoffed, before looking at Hook. "Did the Dinobots step on his brain module while he was down there?"

"Just shut up and get on the berth over there," Hook said, having no time for escalating, inter-Con tensions while he was trying to work. "Like Scrapper said, Scavenger and Mixmaster will get to you. They're fully capable of addressing your needs. Well....reasonably capable."

Amethyst sat there, clenching his servos and every cog in his chassis, waiting for his "Doomsday's wish" to come true, when the nano-kliks just kept ticking by and nothing happened. He had been braced and prepared to "meet his maker", but as his audio receptors listened, his panic lessened, and he let out a deep sigh of relief.

"Just replacement parts.....parts. Heh....heheheheheh!", Amethyst spoke, his realization turning into glee and laughter. That however, was short lived, as a pain came up from his chest and up his throat, causing him to cough up static, "Ack ack kehh." The Seeker lay back down again on the berth, his mind running through what all just happened, and the "cause and effect" as they say. One thing was made very clear today, and that was the fact he NEEDED to NOT skip any more of his routine maintenance checks. "Aye, you're the doc.", Amethyst finally said towards Scrapper, adding, "I'm gonna make sure to keep up with my regimens from now on."

He watched Scrapper walk away to the fabrication bay, and that's when Amethyst's attention was drawn to the sound of the opening doors from the halls. He turned his head to face the entrance, and his optics fell upon someone familiar. He was a mostly dark red "cone-head" Seeker named Thrust. He didn't remember seeing Thrust on the Oahu mission. Where had he been? Hiding around here with his tailfins tucked between his legs? What was the point of that? Amethyst thought he'd ask. He was curious, and besides, he had nothing else better to do while being here than to talk,

"Hey Thrust...you weren't on the mission to that island on Earth. Heh....I'm lucky I could make it to the bounce spot. Anyway.....hi.", it was kind of a pathetic greeting. Then again, he was in a rather pathetic state at the moment, so it was fitting. Maybe Thrust would talk to him, maybe he wouldn't. If Thrust had been hanging around here for a long time though, maybe he could fill Amethyst in on some information he had missed.

The sounds of complaining mechs, from both those injured and the ones repairing them, filled the air, causing Thrust to smirk again.

Few things were as Decepticon-like as repairs after a battle. Megatron didn’t tolerate weakness, and even with their pain sensors going off, many refused to show their pain. It was refreshing, in an odd sort of way. Had the mission been a failure, the tempers of those injured would have made them as dangerous as any creature in the cozmos. But since it was a success, well, they were merely cocky.

This is what happens when the plan is complicated, he mused as he moved deeper into the room. Better to strike fast and hard.

Of course, he didn’t fail to notice the lack of Seekers present. Though he had no doubt there were injuries, pride surged through him at none being damaged enough to be here already—

"Hey Thrust...you weren't on the mission to that island on Earth. Heh....I'm lucky I could make it to the bounce spot. Anyway.....hi."

Thrust turned toward the voice that addressed him. A Seeker. Well, this just means he was among the first in. I could fight alongside this one. His pride grew even more at the thought, and he crossed the room to stand by his comrade’s bedside. Though he couldn’t remember the mech’s name, he was sure it wouldn’t be long before he was celebrated along with him and the other elites.

“Warrior, your injuries do you and the cause great service. Few are brave enough to confront the enemy first.” His mood shifted slightly, at being reminded of the questionable orders. “No, I was ordered to stay behind and,” he waved a hand in the air, “miss the fun. I promise you, warrior, I would have been at your side and this would have been a far more successful victory.”
