Energon'y Raidess!
Date of Scene: 13 March 2020
Location: Ruins of Harmonex
Synopsis: A skirmish over in Harmonex as Autobots seek a Decepticon storehouse and Skyshredder takes a bite out of Deadlock. Again.
Cast of Characters: Deadlock, Skyshredder, Sideswipe


Deadlock has posed:
    Deadlock can be seen zipping across the fringes of Autobot territory near the remains of what used to be the beautiful singing city of Harmonex. He was headed for an underground safehouse, where pockets of Decepticon forces were preparing for some type of guerilla warfare. Or something like that. He has been recently deployed, intending on rendezvousing with his assigned group.

Sideswipe has posed:
Both sides kept their caches close to servo. And paid a great deal of attention to any that were known. Guerilla warfare was if anything more dangerous than straight up combat. So when a Decepticon is spotted heading through Autobot territory, a small group of Autobots that were already on the way towards a suspected depot are moving to intercept.
    Sideswipe calls out along the comm <<C'mon, if we don't blow it all up we can get some goodies from it!>>

Skyshredder has posed:
     <<"Huh? We are supposed to blow it up? I was just going to eat it.">> Skyshredder asks as she skims along close to the ground in her shark mode, her pectoral fins flanking Sideswipe from above. <<"But, if you want to keep some stuff that's fine! You're commander for this op, Swipers!">> she adds cheerfully.

     With her elevated position and enhanced senses she might spot Deadlock before Sideswipe does. And when she does she seems to perk slightly. <<"Ooooh. Looks like we caught a Con on the way to get the goodies! And it looks like one I've chewwed on before!">>

Deadlock has posed:
    Deadlock doesn't notice Skyshredder in the air, but a quick sensor sweep along the ground brings up a blip behind him that is Sideswipe. So he speeds up and pulls quickly around a corner of a dilapidated street then transforms quickly, whipping out a missile launcher with the aim of giving the red Autobot a nasty surprise as soon as the mech comes around as well.

Sideswipe has posed:
Somehow the flying cheerful sharkbot is sneakier than Sideswipe. Dignity, thy name is Autobot. Sideswipe is racing along, going at good speed <<Well, we gotta get there first and..>> Then the blast goes to hit him over and he's going to flip over <<Looks like the Cons got to it first!>> Going to try and get a quick general idea of where the shots came from, Sideswipe's not bothering to transform - a pair of laser cannons on his hood popping up to try and spray the area the shot came from!

Skyshredder has posed:
     While Sideswipe is recovering from the hit, Skyshredder has a direct view of just where that shot came from. Her avoiding detection probably has more to do with Sideswipe's loud engine than anything, since the shark's anti-grav 'swimming' system is naturally quiet. Once the show has been fired, she turns her pointed snout toward Deadlock and grins. "Hey there, Deady! Guess you like getting chewwed on by me~" she calls out as she swims in quickly and tries to bite down on him, and possibly even carry him for a short distance before dropping him.

Deadlock has posed:
    Deadlock smirks as the missiles connect, but that triumph is short lived when he realizes Sideswipe isn't alone. Before he can evade, Skyshredder swoops down and grabs him, dragging him across Harmonex's ruined landscape a bit before dropping him in a heap. Ugh. Not -that- one. "Either that or you're just mad because you lost the war of words when it -counted-."

    He jumps into a half blown away warehouse for cover, and fires another missile, this time at the beastformer.

Sideswipe has posed:
Going to zoom along, once he gets a solid confirmation of Deadlock's position once Skyshredder goes in to take a bite, Sideswipe calls out, "Hey, Gun Runner! Let's see you run from these!" One of the shoulder rockets over on Sideswipe would go in for a track as Sideswipe would zoom to robot mode, shifting and transforming as he would aim. "So blow home!"

Skyshredder has posed:
     Skyshredder banks around after her attack, making her a perfect target for one of those missiles. It hits and blows a noticable hole in her side, causing the shark to lose altitude for a few moments and scrape the ground before she is back in the air...and basically becomes a missile herself. Deadlock finds a multi-ton missile of solid robotic muscle flying toward him. "Whatever, that mech was crazy anyway! I mean, I saved him from getting killed by himself or by you, and he went back to you! That just screams abusive relationship, you know?"

     She crashes into the building, attempting to smash through it and into Deadlock, and her huge bulk smashing into him combined with her razor-studded skin could be trouble!

Deadlock has posed:
    Skyshredder just manages to smash into the building, but not into Deadock, who rolls out of the way. However that opens him up for Sideswipe's rocket. Seems like a rocket trading day. Unfortunately Deadlock is all out of rockets, so he draws his Path Blaster. This wasn't going to end well. 2 on 1, and he doesn't have backup. Well, at least they didn't follow him back to the safehouse, and he's going to make sure they never find it! He opens fire on Sideswipe as he runs to whatever his next source of cover is going to be.

Sideswipe has posed:
He has an optic on Deadlock now. Sideswipe isn't planning on letting him get away. "Hey, time to fly Con Air!" He's calling out and going to activate his jet pack in quick, rapid bursts as the shot would go to impact him as he would run towards the Decepticon. Leaping through the air, he goes to try and fly in for a quick flying kick at him if possible in passing! Or at least force him to evade.

Skyshredder has posed:
     It is pretty likely to end badly for the 1 in a 2 on 1. But, only if both of the 2 can hit the 1, and Skyshredder finds that she made a mess of the building only and not of Deadlock. When he comes rolling out blasting she goes after him and transforms mid charge. "Nothing to say to that, Locker?" she asks with a grin as she pulls her sawsword from her back and comes flying in with an over the head swing. "Where is your buddy anyway? Did Cascade wise up already?"

Deadlock has posed:
    Deadlock doesn't dignify either of them with a response. It's nothing but distraction, anyway. He gets kicked, and then fuel goes spurting when Skyshredder comes down with her sawsword.

    The Decepticon grunts and tries to grab at the leg that is kicking at him, to pull down and twist toward some exposed sharp edges on a building frame.

Sideswipe has posed:
Now the fun starts! With Deadlock going to slash at him and hurl him into a building, Sideswipe is immediately getting up, "Come on Skyshredder, let's make some Con Kebabs! Whatever's left we feed to the Scraplets!" Presuming that Sideswipe can in tur go to grab ahold of something, Sideswipe is leaping up and going over to to a standard Sideswipe combat maneuver. Namely trying to arc up, smash, and grab to hurl both Cybertronians hard to the ground!

Skyshredder has posed:
     Skyshredder isn't quite sure what to do as Sideswipe gets pulled down into a wrestling session. She doesn't want to hit him after all, and another swing of that big shark-toothed sawsword might do just that. As might the chain whip mode. So, she hangs back for now, waiting for an opening and cheering Sideswipe on. "Yeah! Get 'im, Sideswipe! He's got nothing on you!"

Deadlock has posed:
    Deadlock is getting to the point of feeling some real hurt on his end of things. What was the point of this anyway? He needed to just get away and head back toward Kaon. Maybe consider deploying at a different time or location. So he draws his Path Blaster again even as Sideswipe comes down and smashes him to the ground, firing it at close range right into the brawler's chassis.

Sideswipe has posed:
That actually hurt some. Not that he would really admit it. But with a quick check of his systems and the damage, Sideswipe goes to shift back to try and take a quick kick over at Deadlock. The intent is to have some room to open up Deadlock to attack from Skyshredder. Kicking up to try and hit him in the wrist that's holding the Path Blaster to if possible disarm him!

Skyshredder has posed:
     With room opened up, Skyshredder transforms and charges. But rather than bite she tries to smack into him with her side and scrape against him before flicking her tail against him at the end. "Come on, Lockie! It isn't as fun if you don't say anything and just take your beating!" she says as she pulls away again. She doesn't realize that he might be leading them away from whatever cache they might have otherwise found.

Deadlock has posed:
    But who said Deadlock wants them to have fun? Because he definitely doesn't. Sideswipe kicks the blaster away, and it clatters across the ground. As he moves away to try to put space between himself and his opponent, Deadlock tries to take the opportunity to get away from them. Unfortunately, Skyshredder rams into him before he can do that, sending fuel spewing everywhere again as she scrapes against him and thwacks him with her tail. He goes tumbling, but as soon as he manages to right himself, he transforms and tries to speed off and lose them in the ruins.

Sideswipe has posed:
As Deadlock goes to race away, Sideswipe is still tumbling over and away from him and in no position to get up. "Slaggit!" He goes to however make a quick grab over at the dropped weapon. moving to pick it up, Sideswipe inspects it rapidly to make sure there's no booby traps on it or things that might make the weapon backfire if touched by anyone not it's primary wielder.

Skyshredder has posed:
     Deadlock transforms and speeds away, and the shark-formed Skyshredder's eyes light up. Fleeing prey. The predator's greatest weakness! Her sharky face curls up in a grin...and her tail starts to kick hard. She gives chase and tries to get one last bite in before Deadlock gets away. "You should know by now Lockie...I don't let my prey get away!" she calls out as she closes in. Her big maw opens wide, and Deadlock gets a rear-view mirror full of teeth and grinding and shredding internal mechanisms before she chomps down.

Deadlock has posed:
    Once again, Skyshredder has shredded Deadlock. His profusely leaking chassis goes limp in her jaws. So much for that cache, or outpost, or whatever it was they were after.

Sideswipe has posed:
Sideswipe goes to call out to Skyshredder, "Nice catch. Guess he's like a fish.. Out of water." He offers to her, "Good job. Think we can secure hima nd wait for pickup? Cons are probably going to be sending in some reinforcements at this point so we probably want to get to somewhere defensible just in case."

Skyshredder has posed:
     It's true, Skyshredder wasn't thinking about how Deadlock might have led them to something useful if they followed him. Instead, once the bite has been delivers she chews a bit before setting him down. She transforms and scratches her head, looking down at him. "I'm sure we can." she answers Sideswipe. "I could probably carry him to one of our brigs, but maybe not before more Decepticons showed up. Maybe we just leave him here and find whatever he was after out here?"

Sideswipe has posed:
Sideswipe nods thoughtfully, "Sounds good." They'r a bit far out in Autobot territory to haul back a prisoner, and the Cons are probably going to be sending a patrol in ASAP, particularly if someone got comms cutoff. "Give me a moment to make it a bit harder on 'em." Then he's going to try and if possible put Deadlock underneath some of said rubble that had been kicked up over the fight. Sure, kick him while he was down.. "Let's sweep."
