The Universe is Inside Out

A TF:A Blitzwing appears in the dressing room, looking slightly shell shocked. First checking to see if anyone's in the immediate area, he flops down with a sigh, all but cradling the large hammer he arrived with.

"This is just payback, isn't it?" he says, not expecting an answer.

Those from similar realities may very well recognize that hammer. And may wonder what the slag Blitzwing's doing with it...

"Payback?" asks Bob gently from the door to the energon room, where he's standing with his arms full of pink cubes.

Blitzwing looks a little startled at the voice, if not the question. "Bob.." he acknowledges, "I...killed someone in rage. Now I...have his job." He switches to Random, a half-amused grin on his face, "No one told us the posision was 'You break, you buy'..."

Bob looks at the hammer as he steps out of the other room and comes toward Blitzwing, his expression saying that he's trying to understand. "Will you tell me the story?"

Blitzwing glances around to see if anyone else is in the area, then sighs, "The Autobots lead a full force attack on our base on Earth...Ultra Magnus was leading...Skywarp found me in the Dream, but when I got there, he had gone offline...Thundercracker had as well, Lugnut was all but gone, I thought he was." Blitzwing paused, a frown on his Icy face, "The next thing I knew, I was holding this hammer, standiing over Ultra Magnus' offline shell..."

The purple and grey Seeker is trembling, but he only comes and sits next to the other Decepticon, his optics on Blitzwing's face.

"I..was griefstricken...both that Lugnut was 'gone', and...so was Magnus," Blitzwing a but turned away, when Hothead took control, his blue eyes no longer hidden by the red visor, "We HATED him, hated him for not believing us, for letting them try and separate us...but we didn't want to...do that..."

He might have reconciled, but the memories were too much at the moment, and Hothead sobbed into his knees.

Bob quickly sets the cubes aside, then leans over to put his arms around the sobbing mech. He's not saying anything yet, only offering support and a set of listening audio receivers.

Blitzwing switched to Random, still upset, but more to help hide Hothead...just in case someone else besides Bob came in, "I'm sorry..." Blitzwing says, "...just. Ah....We..made it home. Not sure how, must have pressed our PINPoint...I...can we just skip forward? Please?"

"Go ahead," says Bob gently, his crimson optics full of compassion.

Random then explains, in quick detail, what had happened. They had took the Hammer with them, by accident, though they could then see no way to give it back without..complecations..how a ghostly Ratchet...did Bob know him?...brought Ultra Magnus' ghost to see them and that they reconciled...and that his Lugnut had gone and found their Megatron just kliks before the Warlord went offline...

Bob nods as he continues to listen intently. Yes, he knows that Ratchet well.

"Without Megatron...we..didn't wish to continue the fighting," Blitzwing said, "...slag, Megatron's last orders, according to Lugnut, were for him to settle down with Stryka... kept busy. carving the memorial, checking to make sure Lugnut was SURE...I mean, the last time we thought he was offline, Luggy was sure he was not and destroyed the statue." He switches to Hothead, "Do you realize how long it took me to carve the first one?"

"A long time," says Bob softly, his processor busy with prayer for Blitzwing and for his people.

"At the memorial...I spoke of a need of a new leader. We wanted peace, at least with the Autobots. Most of us, anyway, but I've never known the 'Cons to completely agree on anything except Megatron...I guess I...spoke too well. I think Lugnut had something to do with it..." he switched back to Hothead again, and pointed to his eyes, "I told them what I used to be, I SHOWED them these. Slag, I think it made them want me more. Someone that...could understand the Autobots."

Bob nods, understanding the logic behind the other Decepticons' choice.

"As it is...I'm now the Decepticon's leader.." Hothead says, then switches back to Icy, "..or, I am. I am the 'Con in this chassis." He then half smirks, half frowns, "As this happened, Ultra Magnus' ghost was speaking with the Council. They..pardoned me, I don't know for how much, but it seemed to be a clean slate. And..they had no leader. They needed one. Without knowing the 'Cons had done likewise...they chose me."

"The entire universe has gone insane!" Random peeks out and cackles.

Bob's mouth falls open slightly. "Chose you? But... why? Was it Ultra Magnus' idea? You were his friend once, right?"

May. 16th, 2009 12:36 am (UTC)
"Yes..best friends, since the Academy..." Blitzwing says as he turns back to Icy, "And I..I'm quite sure it was his idea. Hence...what I said when I came in..."

"Payback," says Bob softly, giving his head a slight shake of amazement.

Blitzwing just chuckles mildly, "I do remember him having a strange sense of humor...this would fit right in. Just not sure how he managed to have the Council agree to it..."

"It was all of the Council?" asks Bob, his expression puzzled and thoughtful.

"I wish I knew more about the realities of that type." Bob sighs and sits up to hug himself. "How do you feel about being chosen? Other than that it's payback?"

Yes, Bob is from such a reality. But he hasn't been there since the day he came online. He tends to minister at Auspex's sanctuary instead.

"I tried to talk them out of it at first...both of them," Blitzwing says, indicating both the Decepticons and the Autobots, "But...if this is what it takes to bring peace between us..."

May. 16th, 2009 10:39 pm (UTC)
"Will you be able to do both?" asks the purple and grey Seeker softly.

"All I can do is try...but it..does make negotations a bit easier," Blitzwing manages a smile.

Bob produces his own smile, and gentle and hesitant as it is, it is nonetheless encouraging.
