Slipstream
TFA Slipstream

Slipstream is within her personal quarters, in the building she refers to as 'Park Slope Apartments', on account of the proximity of the purple, slope-sided structure to an overgrown park of organic and mineral flora. A few other Seekers have shown interest in the building, but for the most part the tiers of studio and multi-room personal quarters are still vacant, and the observation deck and lower common rooms are seldom used. Lately, Slipstream has not even used her quarters, as she's been so busy with Wind Turbine Project business.

Now, she is finally taking some time for herself. She holds a polishing cloth in hand, just having attempted to polish her wings to remove the drag caused by her trek through the woods to the Shack the other night. She doesn't really know which was worse, the dense foliage switching her wings, or crazed Autobot front-liners; all to get a few parts for the turbines. Maybe, she's starting to understand what 'sacrifice' means, but she is not really ready to talk about that.


The biggest mystery about me - my secret - is which personality trait I represent. My Lord made six of us clones in his image, but we did not turn out identical to our template. For one: we're different colors. A few of us have unique abilities: teleportation, sonic booms, and other things. And, we each exhibit, or represent a different aspect of our creator's personality: Sycophancy, Deceit, Egotism, Cowardice, Greed...and me.

In fact, it was my hypothesis that we did all exhibit an aspect of our creator's personality, and thus far, this has been proven accurate. But, no one knows what my trait is. When My Lord asked - in that annoying suggestive tone of his - I told him, "Don't Ask!" And, yes that basically means, "I will not tell you."

Earthlings may think it's a bit of an allusion to a now defunct military policy and somehow telling in iteself. But, if you ask me, we've seen very little empirical evidence of that. I can't even tell you if that would change were there more femmes here; I have so little experience in that area that I've no basis for comparison.

I've heard the speculation. I am variously: Competent, Bitter, Intelligent, Critical, Bitchy, Ambitious, Feminine, Evasive...and probably a few other things said behind my back...love-hate relationship with my supposed leader. Yet, it occurs to me, that all of these things are true of me, to some extent, and for the most part true of My Lord, to some small extent. If this is so, then how can any one of these be proven to be the dominant, inherited personality trait? Well, they can't really, at least not without more data.

I am still not telling. A femme does like to maintain some air of mystery about herself, after all. But, you are still all welcome to theorize. I might like that. *smirky smile*

I'd say you got hotness, but that's all yours.

My creator does claim to be the most handsome Decepticons, and he seems to have attracted a mate. *but, that might have more to do with the hunter's instincts and her creator's dangerous rep...and other things she does not want to know about.*

But, I'll accept your compliment. *preens* You are pretty attractive yourself, Skywarp.

You got the competence, curvy. So much so, I'm not sure he has any left for hismelf.

I really appreciate your theory, 'Tex, but I think it is more his goals are so different and so guarded that we see him as incompetent. Really, it's like he is not even trying to do what we expect.

I guess death changes a mech.

Still, your vote of confidence means a lot. I'll gladly tale over his expected duties and work to find us all a way to survive here and get out if we so choose. I want my brothers out of prison.

I don't know if you have feelings like that about a former team or comrades. I need my brothers back, even if some of them make me crazy.

*thinks of how the Detention Centre was kinda like being dead* Yeah, suppose it does.

Hang on, your brothers are in prison? I think I missed that one.

Um... this is a secure line, isn't it? Hard to tell right now, some of my minor stuff's glitching. *nothing's glitching and he knows it's a secure line, but he's having issues talking about his team right now and wants to buy himself a little time*

Just two of my brothers. On Cybertron, imprisoned by the Autobots...mostly the fault of Sentinel Prime...or whatever his rank is.

Another two are just missing.

Keep hearing that name. If he comes here, want me to slag him for you? Presuming Cyclonus ever lets me out of the brig.

And yeah, got team, not got team. Meant to have team. No fraggin' idea where they are though. *sounds a little bitter about this*

Yeah, you can slag the big blue Autobot jerk.

I feel for ya...about the team. I don't have a trine to fly with. All our maneuvers are made for three.

*brightens up* You got a picture of him? Weapons specs would also be handy.

That... about the team, appreciated. You going to find a new trine, or does that just not happen where you're from?

Autobots from my verse don't even have weapons, exactly. They have tools and ceremonial items. I think Sentinel could have a lance and a shield. Oh, and battle masks are popular with them, too. *does not care if others know about Autobots in her verse.*

Um, Warp, Thundercracker and I are not a bonded trine. We were intended to be, and our other three brothers with red and white wing stripes a second trine for our wing. But, we got separated before it could all be official.

I guess in my case I could choose other trinemates, but it's been a struggle just to find allies here.

I am sure some suspect me of scheming, and from a certain point-of-view I am...but there are some I would not betray...like kin.

Send me as full a schematic as you can, and I'll be ready for him, should he turn up. *is deathly serious. Rather likes Slipstream (oddly enough, not in that way) and has got it into his processor that this would please her. And Blackarachnia, who he also rather likes*

Your Skywarp's here though, right? Hope your third shows, then maybe you can do that team bonding thing.

Heh, probably easier than finding out who you can and can't trust from the people you just met.

Can I databurst you the scan? I was only able to scan him from a distance when he was in Detroit, being he - and a certain bounty hunter I suspect - were after my brothers and me.

*she scanned the Jet Twins, too, but she's keeping that data for herself*

Skywarp is around, but I think he gets anxious and stays in his room a lot. *he lives in a red building*

Yeah sure. *accepts*

*has made his own scan of the JetTwins, and also isn't sharing*

Ah yeah, he kinda ran away when I tried to talk to him.

I hear ya, Sister. There are things they just so not understand.

How are things going in your secret spot? Well...I don't expect you'll give me details. Some things we can't even tell other femmes.

I have located adequate base material and fashioned the second turbine. When will you be at the facility?
