Synopsis: In which Sideswipe gives Skyshredder Goldfish Crackers and gets Hugs!
Cast of Characters: Swivel, Skyshredder, Sideswipe


Sideswipe has posed:
Entertain Skyshredder. He's not sure -why- but Sideswipe is game for trying. Besides, she's cute by his standards! So, a few calls in, and Sideswipe has gotten a delivery of what look like some sort of giant little.. Robotic looking fish things which are inanimate. They've been infused along the shell with some sort of bio-organic gel to give them some flavorings. Sideswipe isn't really sure -why- or -how- such a thing exists.. But, if the giant shark is going to get things to nom on, might as well have some vaguely miniature robotic shark mecha snacks.

Skyshredder has posed:
     Skyshredder has been out on patrol, so when she does make her way back into the barracks she is famished! And her odor sensors are starting to go haywire the closer she gets! Her heavy footsteps herald her arrival, and the first thing to enter the barracks is her nose, followed closely by her teeth. "What smells good in here?" she asks as she walks in, and her big ice blue optics quickly scan the room for the possible source.

     They settle quickly on Sideswipe and his box of shark treats! "Hey Swiper! Whatcha got there?" she asks, already zeroing in on the fish things. "That's weird. I didn't think vehicle bots liked those sorts of snacks!" she says as she reaches him and looks down at the delivery. "...are you gonna eat all of them?" she asks after a moment, her tone hopeful.

Sideswipe has posed:
Sideswipe goes to waev at Skyshredder "Hey, good to see you. And I was told that you'd been a good.. Shark?" That's what she is right? "And that I was supposed to get you something nice." He's really not sure -who- ordered it, but Skyshredder is nice enough. So no reason not to engage over on it. "They're all for you. So go ahead and take as many as you want." He offers them to her like a bag of energon goodies.
    "I didn't know what they are but the place I got 'em from was really certain that they were good."

Skyshredder has posed:
     Skyshredder waves back when waved to, then smiles delightedly when Sideswipe says it is all for her. "Wow! Just for being a good shark? That's great! If this is what they get for good sharks then I can't wait to see what they get for great sharks!" she says as she takes the bag. She opens it up and takes a biiiiiig whif from it before pulling out one of the fish and popping it into her mouth. There are plenty of metal crunching metal sounds as it gets ground up by her internals. Sounds that might be unsettling to some.

     But, Skyshredder seems to be in heaven. "Hey! These are flavored? That's awesome! I usually just eat them straight from the Mithril Sea!" she says, smiling happily at Sideswipe. "I guess Jazz really liked my report on Chela!"

Sideswipe has posed:
The mechanics of the report are a bit beyond what Sideswipe knows of, so he shrugs, "Hey, you did good. That's going to be of a lot of help." She's cheerful, and it's infectious as the Thug Autobot looks to be cheerful for once. And ti's sincere. HE watches her get her nom on. "Looks like the mech was right. You really seem to like 'em! If you want I can try and get you in touch with him so you can buy up more of them. Guy's kind of a bit weird but has lots of stuff you normally don't see onworld."
    Sideswipe doesn't think seeing things torn up, shredded, and bits and pieces of leftover things sawbladed through is strange. Well, in battle. Out of battle.. Okay, it's a bit strange.

Skyshredder has posed:
     Luckily most of the tearing, shredding, and such is out of view. Just the initial bite as she pops a fish into her mouth is really visible. "Yep! Cyber-fish are the best! Almost as good as turbo-seals!" she says, her words a little garbled thanks to her lack of manners allowing her to talk with her mouth full.

     "So, who was this mech? How'd he know about me and how I'd like these things?" the shark femme asks, obviously just as part of conversation and curiousity. "I gotta thank him! The rations around here are fine, but energon rations aren't nearly as tasty as fish."

Sideswipe has posed:
    What are fish? Oh, those thing sthat Skyshredder just ate. "What're turbo seals? Are they like turbofoxes?" Memories come back of seeing some of the Senate functionaries going to shoot them in enclosed areas and then putting thier 'pelts' up like trophies. "Glad that you.. Like them." Sideswipe is never one to have an issue with manners, given the number of dents in the wall of Maccadam's shaped like his head.
    "Named Hubcap. Kinda sketchy, but he 'gets' things. And I dunno. I just asked him what you might like and he pointed me at this stuff innis stock."

Skyshredder has posed:
     "Um...I guess?" Skyshredder says at the question about turbo-seals. "They're kinda like cyber-fish, but a little smarter and bigger and with kind of rounder heads than a turbo-fox." she says. Skyshredder is just about to eat another when Sideswipe mentions he got them for her. She blinks, then smiles brightly. "Aww~ You got them for me?" She grins then wraps an arm around Sideswipe before squeezing him tight against her side (and possibly picking him up for a few moments in the process). "That's so nice of you! Been a while since someone got me a gift, much less a thoughtful one!" she adds before letting him go. "Hubcap, huh? I don't think I know him. But, I'm pretty famous in some circles, so people might know me and I don't know about it."

     She holds the bag out to Sideswipe after that. "Are you sure you don't want one?"

Sideswipe has posed:
The quick hug then is almost worth being dented for. Almost. Sideswipe seems happy. "Guess they're not something I've been around for. By the time I was up and operational there weren't any wildlands left." Maybe those were tings from the Rust Sea or something? The metal of his back isn't quite giving so much now as he's let down by the -way- bigger girl.
    "Well, you definitely deserve a lot of nice things." One blue optic would flash on and then off a moment later. "And.. Nah I'm good." At the fish shaped metal treats. A little -too- quick of a shake.

Skyshredder has posed:
     Skyshredder giggles and bit and shrugs. "Yeah, most land mechs don't really get to see what lives in the water. It is plenty wild down there still though, if you go deep enough!" she says. When Sideswipe turns down the fish, Skyshedder shrugs before popping another into her mouth. "Suite yourself! They are tasty though! So, thanks again!" she says cheerfully.

     She pauses a moment after that. "A lot of nice things, huh? Like what? I'm not even sure what nice things I'd think of!"

Sideswipe has posed:
Sideswipe goes to ever so casually flex one of his pistons over, accompanied by a light 'revving' of the built in engine that normally is pushed up to the max when in speeder mode. "Well, that depends if we can keep up with one or another." He would grin at her. "And I'm glad you like 'em. Maybe we can go racing sometime to try and find some more."

Skyshredder has posed:
     Skyshredder perks at that revving and grins predatorily. "Racing, huh? Well, if its in a mostly straight line you don't stand a chance. I can even keep up with Blurr!" she says proudly. That arm wraps around Sideswipe again, but in more of an intimidating a friend sort of way. "So...you think you can keep up with me? I'm pretty wild, you know! I didn't even live in Cybertronian society for a few million years~ I only just started really joining in again since joining the Autobots!"

Sideswipe has posed:
Now that gets a low whistle. "Where have you been all my existence? You can take bites out of Blurr, you're big, strong, and have razor blades built in as close quarters shredders." Someone is definitely getting a nice vibe here. "I'm looking forwards to it." He lets the arm go in.

Skyshredder has posed:
     Skyshredder grins even a bit more. "Where? Out there in the Mithril Sea most likely~" she says, then hees. "Well, if you want a taste of it...I'm always up for a good sim battle with a friend! Even Jazz took me up on it when I asked him! I'm not sure if it counts as a win for me though. He allowed me to put us in the middle of the ocean." she says.

     After the mention of her shredders, Skyshredder giggles sort of naughtily. "You want to see it?" she asks, then reaches to pull her big chainsaw sword from her back and holds it out to Sideswipe. "Careful not to saw yourself in ha-aaalf~" she singsongs.

Sideswipe has posed:
Another place he's never been. Sideswipe tries his best to look nonchalant; it doesn't particularly stand up well. "I don't think I could quite keep up with that." He looks down at himself. "I think I can float." Well, most Cybertronians probably have some level of inherent insulation for deep 'diving' in thier frames. "And Jazz is one cool customer."
    He glances at the huge buster sword. "And that is sweet. It's nearly as big as Grimlock's." Someone is definitely crushing. Hard.

Skyshredder has posed:
     Skyshredder giggles again and brandishes the sword. "Right?" she says, then blinks. "Wait...who's that?" she asks before shrugging and grinning again. "Yes, I love my sword. But the best part might be..." She pulls a trigger on it, and the chain of the chainsaw unhitches before she swipes it across the barracks, slicing a nearby table and its chairs into pieces. "...it is also an awesome chain whip!"

Swivel has posed:
And in comes a small, not overly intrusive figure. Swivel comes by, her holding several datapads tightly to her chest as she walks. It isn't hard to miss Skyshredder. Anywhere. Swivel was just in the middle of giving a smile and anod in greeting, when amidst the sound of metal grinding through metal there is a clatter of as Swivel drops everything she is carrying. Swivel stands there, mouth agape in a stupor at Skyshredder's careless vandalism.

When she regains some semblance of composure, Swivel's hands go to the sides of her head as she surveys the damange. "Skyshredder! STOP!" Her voice, already usually girlish and lilting, reaches a new pitch of shrill.

Sideswipe has posed:
It revs. IT really revs. "That is the loveliest thing I have ever.." Sideswipe has to really make sure that he's not going out to touch it over in appreciation. But, he knows what a shredder does so he's not quite going over.
    He quickly hops back over as it ever so casually goes through the chairs, almost seemingly to Sideswipe's impressed evaluations go clean through the things meant purely for sittings on. The sudden approach of Swivel has him shift in her direction, and he offers, "Hey, no problem. I'll fix it!" He goes over to then try and quickly pick up the bits of cut up furniture if he can.

Skyshredder has posed:
     When Swivel suddenly squeaks out her order, Skyshredder yelps and looks around before blinking. "What?! What did I do?!" she exclaims, clearly not grasping that one should not murder furniture. When Sideswipe says he'll fix it, it seems to dawn on her. "Oh! Uh...me too!" she says quickly and makes her way over quickly. But, being big and not actually all that graceful in bot form...she kind of skids over the pieces and sends them skittering across the floor.

     She blinks, then laughs a bit. "Hey! Just like your datapads!" she says to Swivel before smiling at Sideswipe.

Swivel has posed:
Swivel goes from mortified to looking just exasperated. But then she sighs, leaning down to pick up the items she had dropped once Skyshredder mentions them, almost as if she'd forgotten them. She glances up from her task briefly when Sideswipe swoops in to clean up after Skyshredders. "Ah... it's gallant of you to offer, Sideswipe, but Skyshredder needs to also take responsibility for herself a little more." Swivel stands up straight, holding up one of the datapads, inspecting a crack. She just shakes her head and walks over to a nearby, still intact side table and sets them all down.

"Skyshredder, what you did is vandalism. More than vandalism. It's destroying property. These things are for everyone to use, and destroying them isn't respectful. Now I know you want to be a /good/ Autobot, and good Autobots don't destroy furniture, even when showing off their signature weapon. Okay?" Swivel explains, claspong her hands together out in front, and keeping her voice as even as possible.

Sideswipe has posed:
Sideswipe shakes his head, "Nah, it was my fault. I asked her to show what it could do, it's on me." Going to start to pick up the ibts of furniture, then going to put them ever so not carefully atop one another in place. Narrowing his optics at it, then going to start to take out his hand to try and knock them over to get them to.. Mostly stick in place. No one would notice!

... Okay most would notice but still. Sideswipe looks down at Swivel. "Uhm, Swivel right?" He tentatively goes to offer a hand out.

Skyshredder has posed:
     Skyshredder blinks at the use of the word vandalism, then thinks for a few moments. "...oh. I didn't think about that." Obviously. She listens to the rest of what Swivel says before nodding emphatically. "I'm sorry Swivel! Of course I want to be a good Autobot! I won't break any more furniture!" she promises before she more seriously starts helping pick up the pieces and any datapads that Swivel missed.

     She hears Sideswipe and blinks, then vents. "Hey, don't do that! You didn't ask me to break furniture! I just got carried away! I don't get people that are interested in my stuff very often." she says, her words starting out as sort of scolding but ending up as more happy.

Swivel has posed:
Swivel just raises an optic ridge when Sideswipe insists it was his fault. With a hand on her hip, it's fairly clear she isn't buying it. However, she doesn't protest or reproach further. She does, however, squint a little as she looks at his piling of furniture parts, her snubbed nose wrinkling ever so slightly.

Swivel looks over as Skyshredder passes her a datapad she had missed, nodding and murmuring a quick thanks as she takes it, examines it for damage, then sets it aside. "I'm not mad. Just be sure that you don't break any more furniture." Swivel looks again at the shoddy assembly. "And... I think it just might be best to replace the furniture you destroyed. If something like this happens again, you will have to pay."

Swivel looks alerlty over to Sideswipe when he tentatively offers a hand. She looks at the hand. She then looks at Sideswipe's face. Then she looks at the hand. Just as tenatively as it was offered, she accepts it.

Sideswipe has posed:
One of the pieces of furniture looks like it was about to tumble over. Sideswipe rewards it with a quick little kick that has it sticking in place. SOmehow having just the right amount of force to keep it 'popped' in from someone who has spent a lot of time smashing things and making them look not -quite- as badly smashed. Or just keeping armor panels from falling off when all you have is a laser to weld them back on.

"Sure, we'll get more furniture. Honestly I'm surprised it's lasted this long. I don't normally see stuff that's intact here. For more than a couple dozen breems at least. So, we're just keeping up with tradition." Sideswipe looks back at Skyshredder. "Why wouldn't they be interested? That thing is scything awesome. I'm guessing you have a few shredders in it that'll be used to thin or pierce through the armor, then the energon jolts along to disrupt systems. Do you use it mostly for shorting circuits or slashing?"

Skyshredder has posed:
     Skyshredder nods quickly as Swivel says not to break any more furniture and to replace the furniture that was broken. "Okay." she agrees, then looks over at Sideswipe. All his questions about armor shredding and energon jolts and things just draws a blank look from her. "I..um...just use it to cut things up from afar." she says. She really is a simple creature, it seems. "That would be neat though! But, when I want to break someone's armor I just smash against them in shark mode and slide against them. If that doesn't cause some cracks in their armor, my rough skin takes care of the rest!"

     She watches as Swivel and Sideswipe shake hands, then smiles. "Yay! We're all friends here now!" she says, then tries to scoop both up in her big arms and squeeze both.

Swivel has posed:
Swivel tilts her head, looking at the furniture. Mess. Jumble. Whatever she was going to say or do next, though, is insterrupted as she is gathered up into a large group hug by Skyshredder. Other than a very short squeak that was barely audible, she doesn't protest much, even when she feels air beneath her feet. After all, Swivel was very used to be handled by larger mechs and femmes.

Sideswipe has posed:
Being grabbed by the perpetually cheerful Skyshredder isn't exactly unwelcomed by Sideswipe! Though it's a bit surprising. He would take it in stride but he's being lifted up off the ground at the moment so he's more just sort of hanging. "Well, what it doesn't slash it skewers?" He offers as if that was some sort of divine logic straight from the vocalizer of Primus.

Skyshredder has posed:
     Skyshredder doesn't keep them aloft for very long. Just a few moments then they are set down again. "Yep! One way or another, if you are on the wrong end of the teeth you get cut!" she to Sideswipe. Then, she finds the bag of fish-shaped treats that Sideswipe brought and starts popping them like popcorn again.

Swivel has posed:
Swivel doesn't mind the shows of affection, but she also feels better when her feet are firmly planted on solid ground. She shifts her weight a little, almost as if making sure the ground is, indeed, still solid. She then walks over to where she'd set her datapads down and picks them up again. "Well, you two might as well gather up what's left of the furniture you attacked and take it to disposal. I'll get on filling out requisition forms for replacement furniture. I'll just cite the cause as 'traditions'." Swivel says with a straight face, but there does seem to be a warm glimmer in her purple optics. Hearing a crunch though, she looks up at Skyshredder curiously, as if making sure whatever she was eating wasn't also part of the environment.

Sideswipe has posed:
Sideswipe Lets himself be dropped over. "Cool, works for me. And nice to meet'cha." HE waves over at Swivel, going to start over to make sure none of the.. Less than stable furniture is going o be falling soon enough that it will be onticed by a hall monitor. "And she really likes those. You could ask her if she would like to share one." He points over at the bag of Sharky Snax.

Skyshredder has posed:
     Whatever Skyshredder is eating, it is definitely not part of the environment. When Sideswipe mentions it, Skyshredder holds the bag out to Swivel, offering the smaller femme one of the fish treats. It really isn't clear if they are real cyberfish or some kind of imitation, but either way Skyshredder doesn't seem to care. "Don't worry, Swivs! We'll get this all cleaned up before you can say Megatron's a mook!" she says with a grin. Then, she goes about helping Sideswipe get the pieces all cleaned up and...well, Swivel did say to dispose of them. So...Skyshredder just eats them. They may not be fish, but the shark doesn't seem to mind.

Swivel has posed:
Swivel tucks her datapads under her arm and tentatively picks up one of the snacks. She looks it over, seeming a little bit under about it. She nibbles at it. Well. Gnaws at it, with very little success. It's just too hard for the much smaller femme with flatter dentition. But, hey, she tried. Swivel just... tucks the partially gnawed snack away somewhere and looks up, smiling. "Good, have it all..." she stops mid sentence when Skyshredder eats the furniture. "Ahem. Well. That's... one way of disposing of it. But don't make a habit out of this, Skyshredder!" Swivel warns, wagging a finger. She then shuffles her datapads back to being held firmly with both arms and begins to head down one of the halls.

Sideswipe has posed:
Sideswipe waves over at Swivel, "Uhm.. Good luck with your.. Reports?" He's seen the way the AUtobot bureaucracy works. Somewhat better than the Senate's. If not much. He glances at Skyshredder, "Well, if you mook him like that.." He smirks. "Looking forwards to seeing more of your bite in action. Just not on me. Save it for the Cons." Someone has a new friend!
