trix dull surprise
TFA Slipstream

*Slipstream wakes suddenly in her berth. Self-diagnostics say her core temp is below average. She's running cold. The polypropylene microfiber sheets covering the surface of her berth are marked with external lubricant like a forged sacred shroud. The room is dark. Rain and small-scale hailstones strike the wide window as thunder booms in the distance. The storm is moving away, she thinks.*

A dream?

*Her kind do not dream...at least not in the specific electrochemical manner of human organics. She knows there has long been debate over whether all sentient life must dream. "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?" The more complex cortices needing downtime in order to function. During recharge, sensors and CPU, in the process of running maintenance subroutines, could sometimes generate false 'test' sensor data, or interpret old data being moved or marked for delete as new sensory input, and then a bot could get caught in a memory loop, or experience dream-like images and sensations.*

And I thought this place was a bad dream! But that was....

Slipstream had found herself in a strange, dark place unable to move her limbs normally. She staggered, like a floppy marionette...like a rag doll. Some of the Perceptors had shouted and waved from a tower window. Blackarachnia had been there, with some giant arachnid aliens as escort. And one of the Ravages, the sleek black one, had run across Slipstream's path, causing her to stumble more. And then Starscream had appeared, but he had been rather transparent and blue and passed right through her! Then, she had noticed Waspy standing up on a wall, with a large pair of sheers, pruning a topiary into a shape that was beginning to resemble Terrorsaur; he spoke some warning about possession. Tex and Skywarp were stuffing Cassetticons into gift boxes and pie plates. Optimus Prime popped out of a box, like some spring-loaded toy and shot up into the moonlit sky. And Sari was there, wearing a pointy, black hat and cackling madly. Megatron appeared, even larger than he was in life, wearing a dark cloak; he tried to bite her neck! Ramjet appeared and spoke, and then he turned and suddenly Sunstorm was the one there speaking. And then finally, Lockdown climbed out of an old well, wearing a tophat, and saying something about water....


Why do I suddenly really, really want Halloween candy?

*No more Tim Burton movies before recharging!*

[ooc: Slipstream is physically in her quarters. "You" may already be there (but you should ask me about that first), or choose to politely ask for admittance, contact her virtually, or otherwise completely ignore. "You" here meaning any character, basically. Also, let me just brag to everyone and say I have The Nightmare before Christmas on vinyl and am actually listening to it right now with my record player; and it's a picture disc, one of those Hot Topic would sell every Fall...still awesome.]

In the empty room he's claimed for himself in the WTP Facility, sleep is once more eluding Rumble. There's just too much on his processor to power down and activate his recharge cycle.

Finally submitting to his boredom, he rifles through a list of people he could comm for entertainment. He doesn't want to wake anyone up, though, and there are very few workaholics who might be up at this time.

Not wishing to wake her if she's in recharge, Rumble just sends an unobtrusive ping to Slipstream's comm, waiting to see if she'll respond.

*Slipstream receives the ping*

//Rumble?//

//Pretty femme boss!// *he says happily, pleasantly surprised she's still awake.*

//Still awake and working, huh?// *Yeah, smooth, he thinks and gives himself a mental pat on the shoulder. Good way to broach the topic of the WTP. Now to move it stealthily to the production of high-grade...*

//Yes, Rumble, I am online. I was just looking at some data from my home office.// *She's lying, because she just came online after some very random recharge imagery...or something.*

//Has there been a security breach or something?//

*Just as dutiful as Soundwave, he thinks, impressed by the dedication she shows. Nothing for him, of course, but he can appreciate it in others.*

//No, no security breach. I just had nothing to do and figured I might put the time to good use. *pauses a moment, uncertain quite how to proceed* Eh, I was wondering, how are the geeks doing with the energon production?//

//There was a slight delay due to the recent storms; the turbines for the community turbine farm were manufactured and the postholes were drilled down to rock, but the lightening storms made it unsafe to have the team erect the turbine towers. Most of the team - most of the settlement - stayed inside. I hardly saw anyone recently.//

//But...I do plan to go out there very soon to survey the situation now the storm has passed. We need to get the turbine towers up, so we can generate energon.//

*Still uncertain what the easiest way to get energon from the wind turbines would be.*
28th-Jun-2010 10:28 pm (UTC)
//Oh// *he says, a bit disappointed. Of course he should've noticed if they're already producing energon, but you couldn't blame him for hoping...* //That's a shame. I'd been looking forward to some energon from the factory... Actually, I was wondering if I could have my ration in high-grade?// *sounds pathetically hopefully*

*He assumes automatically that the people involved in the project will get priority access because who'd want to be selfless when you can be selfish?*

//We've had a few delays, due to the series of storms, and also one of our team members, Starscream, who is also responsible for refining the energon crystals from the mine, has been temporarily unavailable to conduct the refining.//

*She does not want to tell others, who do not know, about his injuries.*

//But, if you need some for personal use, there is a small cache of high grade left in the cabinets, above the cold storage at the rear right of the Forge chamber. You can have that until I get more...for your efforts.//

*A giant giddy beam spreads on the cassette's face. High-grade! Free access to the high-grade!*

//Pretty boss, you're the best! You are brilliant and generous and beautiful and smart and I'll kick the aft of any slagger who says you aren't!//

*Has forgotten about her 'dream' and is likely preening in her berth right now. She does have some inherited susceptibility to flattery.*

//Yes, I am all that.

Don't broadcast to everyone where I keep that cache.//

// *snickers* Course you're all that, I said so, after all, didn't I? You don't have to worry about me broadcasting the locaton of the high-grade cache. Would be pretty stupid of me to blab, wouldn't it? The less who know of it, the more high-grade left for me!//
