Synopsis: Sideswipe and Skyshredder talk about the past
Cast of Characters: Skyshredder, Sideswipe


Sideswipe has posed:
Sideswipe is currently over in the training room, fiddling over with one of the automated training weapons. Well, two of them. Currently Sideswipe has two of them that he's trying to work over at (badly) welding over together and ensuring that they can both be fired at the same time. THen over atop that he's seeing if he can get a flamethrower attachment for traininga top it. And he's whistling a ballad over from one of the old off road racing arenas as he does so.

Skyshredder has posed:
     After last night, Skyshredder once again comes to the sim to see who she might find! She finds Sideswipe and the unusual weapon he is trying to make. She looks over his shoulder as he works, likely giving away her presence far before that with her heavy steps. "Ooooh. Whatcha makin'? It looks interesting whatever it is!" she says.

Sideswipe has posed:
Sideswipe waves over at Skyshredder, "Just trying to see if I can get one of these things to work kind of like a weapon I've seen out in the field." Two laser barrels, a flamethrower, and an underslung grenade launcher.. "So going to test it and see how it handles."

Skyshredder has posed:
     Skyshredder blinks at that. "Really? You can just stick weapons together like that?" she asks, then hees and grins. "Well, if it doesn't explode it will be awesome to see! And maybe even if it does explode!"

Sideswipe has posed:
Sideswipe shrugs, "Well, I guess we're going to find out. I mean, we're in the training room so it's not like we're going to level anything really important."

Skyshredder has posed:
Skyshredder ooohs and nodnods at that. "Right! We can blow up stuff as much as we want in here! Or break furniture!" she says with a giggle. She steps back though, just in case it does explode.

Sideswipe has posed:
It goes into the sim, and Sideswipe goes to press a button. The weapon fizzles, and then the simulator announces <<ERROR. WEAPON DISABLED.>> The weapon doesn't explode, but it does fizzle some as the various parts of it go to shut down

Skyshredder has posed:
     Skyshredder blinks in surprise then peers curiously at the cobbled cannon. "What happened?" she asks before looking at Sideswipe. She makes her way back over to Sideswipe and gives the gun a poke. "Did it break already?"

Sideswipe has posed:
Sideswipe nods and sighs, "Stupid thing. Simulation decided that the weapon would't operate and so it.." What follows next are a string of profanities over as the 'weapon' would vanish as the component parts would go back to storage.

Skyshredder has posed:
     Skyshredder giggles and shrugs. "Well, it was kind of a long shot. I mean, you can't just stick a bunch of mechs together and expect them to become a combiner." she says once the string of profanities is over. She giggles again and smirks. "That's quite a vocabulary! I'm not sure I've even heard some of those before!"

Sideswipe has posed:
Sideswipe glances at Skyshredder, "Isn't that one of those things mEgatron's supposed to be obsessed with? I mean, you get like four or five of them standing on top of one another and see what happens? Or what was that real old thing with the Primes. Like war of the Headmasters or something?" He nods at Skyshredder, "Thanks! You get to hear a lot of them going underground."

Skyshredder has posed:
     Skyshredder looks up slightly as she considers. "I...think so? I don't really remember seeing one, but there was a lot of talk about them and whether they were abominations or not." she says after a few moments. "Why would Megatron be so interested in them? It seems like they always end up insane and uncontrollable."

Sideswipe has posed:
Sideswipe shrugs his shoulders, "Does it matter? Megatron likes slaggers who can get along with him on his own level. Just means it's another obsession he has with killing us in new ways. And getting his own killed."

Skyshredder has posed:
     Skyshredder thinks about that a moment, then shakes her head. "I really don't get that guy or his followers. I mean, I'm all for freedom and making your own destiny and stuff, but why do you have to destroy everything to do it?" She pulls out her sword and activates some targets before she extends the chain whip and starts hitting them idly. Apparently just talking in a place where you can destroy stuff freely is a little too mundane for the shark.

Sideswipe has posed:
Sideswipe shrugs, "Well, that's what Megatron is. Talks a big game. When push comes to shove he's worse than anyone who came before 'im. He wanted a war, he got one. And he became worse than everyone before him when it came to leading a smear across the galaxy. This war.." Sideswipe goes to shut himself up before he goes on.

Skyshredder has posed:
     "..it's kind of stupid, right?" Skyshredder picks up where Sideswipe stopped. "I mean, it's pretty much like the war way back when with Megatronus. He just decided he wanted a war and started trying to take over Cybertron." she says, shaking her head. "And then it was even more stupid to have had a war since it turned out Megatronus and Onyx Prime were buddies!"

Sideswipe has posed:
That gets Sideswipe's attention for a moment, him glancing over at Skyshredder, "So, you sound like you know this sort of stuff well." His tone is thoughtful. "So was it history for you? Since not all of us.." On Cybertron, "Value it a lot. So it more important on.. Wherever you're from?"

Skyshredder has posed:
     Skyshredder shrugs at that. "I mean, I helped with the war back then, too. I stood with the Primes to defend Cybertron!" she says, then blinks. "...wait, what do you mean wherever I'm from? I'm from here!" she says.

Sideswipe has posed:
That gets Sideswipe's attention, "Wha?" How old -is- she? "You're good friends wtih Kup. Right?" HE's really, really worried now.

Skyshredder has posed:
     Skyshredder hmms softly, then shrugs. "I'm not sure I'd say we were friends really. I only met him once or twice. There were a lot of us in the Prime's armies, so we didn't really see each other that often. And being a flying shark, I was pretty much always on either escort duty or recon."

Sideswipe has posed:
Sideswipe shrugs, "I'm honestly interested in what he would think you were. I'm going to guess he was going on something about a funky turbo chicken trying to pretend it was a fish so that it could get a discount deal on windshield wipers from another planet."
