Cast of Characters: Hyperdrive, Tap-Out


Tap-Out has posed:
    Back at the Power Base, Hyperdrive modelocked, his forcefield disabled, and thrown in with the other prisoners. It's quiet for a moment, and then a familiar voice asks, "Hyper?" From out of the shadows, Tap-Out steps into view - dinged up, scarred, but alive. "Hyper, what happened?" he asks, moving to his old fiend's side. "Are you OK? Did they get you, too?" Tap-Out kneels down, checking on Hyperdrive's electrical burns from the net.

Hyperdrive has posed:
Hyperdrive winces as he finds himself in strange surroundings. He whimpers as his systems don't want to work right. Optics brighten slowly and he tries to figure what he's seeing and hearing. He raises his head. "I...uh....what...where?" He focuses on the closest face. "T-tap-out?" He stares and then shakes his head, trying to stop this vision.

Tap-Out has posed:
    Tap-Out's now-scarred but friendly face swims into view. "Hyper," he repeats. "It's me. You've been captured by Quake and the others. You're in the Power Base."

Hyperdrive has posed:
Hyperdrive reaches up to touch Tap-out's face. He then bows his head and shakes, "I'm sorry, I'm so sorry...I tried ta save you....I tried. I swear I tried. I..I even fought Quake..ta prove that I was tryin..."

Tap-Out has posed:
    Tap-Out smiles gently. "I'm sure you have, Hyper. You don't have anything to prove to me. I'm OK. And you're going to be OK. Get some rest and then... I'll teach you how to survive in here. You'll be OK. And maybe..." he lowers his voice, glancing around first to make sure there are no guards in audialshot. "... help me escape."

Hyperdrive has posed:
Hyperdrive tries to stand but is still rather confused by the net and the disabling devices. He leans against Tap-out before sinking back to the floor. He stares at his friend. "Sure we're n-not dead already?"

Tap-Out has posed:
    "Primus, I hope not!" Tap-Out laughs. "I'd hope the Allspark would have better accommodations than this!" Tap-Out gestures around to the holding cells for Autobot fighters. It's not pretty. Discarded armor and small pieces of dead Autobots litter the floor - anything that can't be scavenged by those desperate to survive. There are others, watching from the shadows. Tap-Out, however, seems in good spirits for an Autobot prisoner forced to fight for the entertainment of others.

Hyperdrive has posed:
Hyperdrive glances at the others warily. He's quite sure that if Tap-out wasn't here, he'd probably be stripped for parts. "I'll...I'll try ta help.So damn dizzy..." He looks at his friend one more time, "Just promise me yer not a hallucination....though...ya look a bit more badaft than I remember." Optics dim a bit more.

Tap-Out has posed:
    Tap-Out chuckles. "For better or worse, I'm real." He pats Hyperdrive reassuringly. "Get some rest. Tomorrow - we train."
