Date of Scene: 07 May 2019
Location: Mithril Sea
Synopsis: They just wanted time to relax, sadly, that is not what they got.
Cast of Characters: Rung, Vortex, Hyperdrive, Ravage, Starlock


Rung has posed:
Rung is taking a day off.

Despite being alone, he seems completely relaxed, at ease with himself and his surroundings. Waves splash at his feet as he strolls along the water's edge, humming a cheerful tune.

He frequently advises his patients to take some time away from work or duty and unwind. That morning, he'd figured that it was high time he take his own advice, and relax after a long work week.

Starlock has posed:
     Starlock is.. Actually not far off, well more like not far a head, she's managed to climb her way up onto one of the rocks to continue one of her drawings. She was actually openly singing here, as she drew, and a familiar black cape around her pauldrons... It's pretty obvious she's not spotted Rung yet, as she still has a scowl on her face and not hiding the how tired she looked.

Vortex has posed:
Vortex is out and about, strutting around like he owns the place. He sees something orange and metal off in the distance and starts to approach. Someone new to harass and oh look. Autobots. And medics. Oh happy day. He smiles brightly under his mask as he takes a rotor off his back. "You guys have no idea how happy I am to see you."

Hyperdrive has posed:
Hyperdrive had been trying to relax. Get out, get some air. Rest...yeah that all sounded wonderful. But he still spent most of his time silent and frowning. And he'd found a spot where there were the mithril sea had washed up debris. He sorted through it, trying to find some new 'toys'. He looks up at the famiiar voice and optics narrow. TUrning back to the pile, he starts picking up a few more of bits and pieces and then turns to look at The other two bots and Vortex.

Rung has posed:
Rung catches sight of Vortex approaching him, and... he just smiles. Not in a creepy serial killer way, of course. His smile is a polite, friendly one, as if he considers Vortex an ordinary passer-by on the street and not a Decepticon soldier. He's well aware of what the chopper is, but that doesn't stop him from addressing the 'Con. "Hello there."

Starlock has posed:
     Starlock blinks and looks over hearing Vortex and groaned out in aggorvation. "Oh for the love of Primus." she'd say dryly and quickly sub-space away her artbook and supplies. She'd have to take a quick moment to get an idea on who was there, she'd catch Rung's voice first, and her optics fine Hyperdrive, she'd then look back to Vortex squinting, and attempt to keep a cordial tone.

     "...Hello."

Vortex has posed:
Vortex holds that rotor protectively, looking from rung to Hyperdrive to Starlock. "Hey, medic. Hey escapee. You guys should come back to your cells. You're missed. Who is your friend?"

Hyperdrive has posed:
Hyperdrive is sorting through the items he picked up. He bounces one in his hand to check the heft of it. Blue optics NARROW at Vortex and once satisfied with his haul, he begins to stalk in the direction of Vortex.

Rung has posed:
Rung comes to a halt when he makes two realizations. One: A couple other Autobots are here as well. Two: This chance meeting looks like it's taking a turn for the worse.

"I don't think we have any business with each other," Rung states calmly, gazing up at the Decepticon. He's not afraid of Vortex, even though he's unarmed and no match for the chopper in a fight. "It would be best if we continued on our separate ways."

He makes a mental note to apologize to Starlock and Hyperdrive later. Speaking for them isn't his intention, but right now he's trying to prevent the situation from escalating.

Vortex has posed:
Vortex pauses. "Probably not, but you know. I have business with these two." he chuckles. "They need to come home. And they know it." he ...giggles. Whoever this con is, he is /quite/ unhinged.

Starlock has posed:
     Unforntally, Starlock knows this is /not/ how this is going to end,given her previous meetings with Vortex,but hey, Rung can try.. He's pretty good at handling those that are of kelter. She'd carefully start making her way off the rocks, specially upon seeing Hyperdrive starting to stalk towards the Decepticon... She'd also quickly stuff away her cape into her subspace, watching carefully to see if Vortex makes a move at.. well any of their movements.

     She'd then flip on her tight beam to both Rung and Hyperdrive. "<<I don't think he's here to listen.. Seems like he's pretty intent on taking us two back as captives.>>"

Hyperdrive has posed:
Hyperdrive is almost vibrating with tension as he continues to glare. "Maybe w-we can takem back-ck instead..." He focuses on the con and starts judging distances.

Vortex has posed:
Vortex doesnt seem to know the plan. He moves to a rock and flops over on one, looking at them. "Aren't you guys terrified? You shoudl be running. Big, bad Decepticon. Raar."

Rung has posed:
"They are individuals with free will, and they will return to their homes when they want to." Rung nods pointedly. "Good day to you."

It's a polite dismissal to the chopper, and he attempts to drive his point home by turning away from Vortex and approaching the pair of Autobots.

"May I ask what he's going on about?" the psychiatrist asks in an undertone.

Starlock has posed:
     "<<I don't think that's a good idea Hyperdrive...>>" She'd knit her ridges, and finally get over to Rung, dropping her voice to a whisper. "He's.. Uh.. wanting to take me and Hyperdrive captive again, since we're two prisoners that have been rescued." she'd mumble, and then shrug her pauldrons.

     "Think he's trying to make a game out of hunting us down..." She'd speculate, given her time as a prisoner and how SALTY Vortex was about not getting to interrogate her, and then hearing the whispers of what happened with Gallo.

Vortex has posed:
Vortex pauses. "See that's the problem. They are free and they shouldn't be/ But you know. Im not really trying too hard to bring them back." he says for whatever reason.

Hyperdrive has posed:
Hyperdrive is shaking, visibly now. But he's still approaching Starlock and Rung...and Vortex. His optics are focused on Vortex. "Terrified....wanna see w-what terrified does...when ya push too far?" THose optics are a little too bright as they stay locked on the Decepticon.

Vortex has posed:
Vortex purrs. "I do." he says, still sitting on the rock. "I do. I wanna see what rage came from our arena. I wanna see the monster you are becoming, little Autobot."

Rung has posed:
Rung sighs softly.

"He's attempting to get a rise out of you," he continues, keeping his tone low. He doesn't grace Vortex's quip with a reply. "I cannot force either of you to do anything, but may I suggest ignoring his needling?"

Starlock has posed:
     Starlock glances to Hyperdrive, and then to Rung, hoping her fellow Medical profession would help in wrangling Hyperdrive as she stepped in front of the others, (Or at least attempted to) in a bid to give osme cover, and maybe stop Hyperdrive If he dived out, and nodded at Rung.

     "Listen to Rung here, Hyperdrive... He Knows what he's doing." She'd add softly.

Hyperdrive has posed:
Hyperdrive is blocked by Starlock and his fist balls up as he glares at her. "W-w're not goin back-ck!" Optics dart to Rung before going back to Starlock. He wants to just go around.

Vortex has posed:
Vortex isn't looking threatening in the least bit. Hes flopped over a rock. "Remember the arena Hyperdrive? We missed it. The beast, snarling, fangs out, drool coming out its mouth. Waiting to munch on metal. Can you hear it? Can you hear the others in the prison screaming? Can you hear Tap-Out dying as you can't protect him?" Oh. hes found a wear spot and he's poking it. "This one's fun. I dont know why you dont let me keep him."

Rung has posed:
"You heard him." Rung raises his voice and gives Vortex a small, disapproving frown. "They are not going with you. I suggest you respect their decision and be on your way. I'm sure you have more productive things to do."

Starlock has posed:
     Starlock does not like having her back turned to an enemy combatant, and is staring at Hyperdrive. "Hyper, we just got you back, please... We don't want to lose you again." She'd say softly in a whisper to the blue bot, she was nervous, very nervous, she'd glance back, keeping an optic on Vortex.

     She'd give a brief glance up, in thanks, to Rung.

Hyperdrive has posed:
Hyperdrive dims his optics and tries to calm himself down. "Don't wanna go back....." He keeps is voice soft and his optics keep the brightness from being overly stressed.

Vortex has posed:
Vortex purrs. "Of course you dont wanna go back." he says, looking to the otehrs. "I dont need to bring you back..physically. I can bring you back right now." He says. "You guys enjoying the show? How long you guys think it'll be before he snaps?"

Rung has posed:
Rung shakes his head. Clearly Vortex isn't going anywhere, so the psychiatrist changes his strategy.

Turning to Starlock and Hyperdrive, he smiles and shrugs. "Shall we find someplace more pleasant for a walk?" he asks them. "I'm sure neither of you came out here to be taunted."

Starlock has posed:
     Starlock gave a soft smile, and brought her hands up to gently rest them on Hyperdrive's cheek plating. "It's okay, we'll make sure you don't." She'd glance up at Rung and nodded. "Yes, Yes that sounds like a nice idea." She'd smile, getting hyperdrive /away/ from Vortex was the best idea right now.

Vortex has posed:
Vortex waves "That's it. Run. Bye, cowards." he purrs. "Chased off three. Do you know why?" He asks no one in particular. "Im bad-aft!" he looks up at the sky, completly secure in his ability to chase off not one not two but three Autobots.

Hyperdrive has posed:
Hyperdrive is...is so trying to focus on Starlock. He looks at Rung and then Starlock again. THey turn, starting to leave and all. He seems to be finally calming down from the ordeal. And....THAT is when Vortex had to mouth off again. Hyperdrive is suddenly swinging, aiming and FIRING at the con. His expression livid. "MUTE IT!" Yep...probably not the best way to meet Rung. But once he's fired, he doesn't engage further. Just staring for a moment before looking away.

Rung has posed:
Rung flinches as the shot shhhhhhzzzzzzzts right past him, stepping back so that he doesn't get shhhhhhhzzzzzzted along with Vortex. "Well," he sighs. "I can't say this was unexpected."

Starlock has posed:
     "Farg." Starlock would curse, /so close/ they were /so close./ And then she would vent a sigh. "...Nope, it wasn't, ya' tried." She'd huff, and place a hand on Hyperdrive. "Come on, lets go before the the stun-gun's effects wear off." she'd sigh, waving for Hyperdrive to follow her.

     She wasn't mad, just... Not surprised.

Vortex has posed:
Vortex looks like hes ready to continue his little game when suddenly the stun ZAAAPS right through him. He collapses to the ground, shaking badly givign the bots time to escape.

Hyperdrive has posed:
Hyperdrive twitches and then nods before following Starlock. This time transforming so they could quickly be heading back. The little hovercar revs irritatedly, not happy with how this went either. He just wanted to go home.

Ravage has posed:
"Mmm...what did I say the other cycle, Vortex? Just because you can't see me doesn't mean I'm not around? How...fortunate for you. This time." The voice is calm, perhaps rather...svelte, and certainly amused, though the owner is still hidden from view. "Mmmm...and now you've gone an picked a fight with a few pint-sized treats and one...peculiar looking...Rung is it? I think I've read your file before."

Ravage shimmers into view, lounging rather calmly nearby. How long was he there? ....well, feel free to guess. Still, there he is, not looking all too aggressive in his posturing as he just smiles in amusment at the group nearby, tail flicking lazily at the tip.

Rung has posed:
Rung flinches as Ravage makes his appearance, but he recovers quickly from the surprise of someone just popping into sight like that. "Indeed it is," he replies politely. "Now, if you'll excuse us..."

Starlock has posed:
     Starlock's finials shoot up when Ravage appears, and he's focused on /Rung/ of all bots. Starlock would hop a few paces back, and transform, popping open her door for Rung. "We have somewhere to be!" She'd say, as if adding onto Rung's statement.

Vortex has posed:
Vortex starts trying to move, mutteirng. "Ru..so..thats his..name. Run. RUN MINIBOTS!" he cackles. "I can almost feel my hands again!"

Hyperdrive has posed:
Hyperdrive revs again and is very agitated if his movements are anything to go by. "NOt goin back!" He sweeps away and then turns around, waiting for Starlock to follow him.

Ravage has posed:
Ravage gives a disinterested nod. "Go on then...or, poke him more. It might be amusing to watch." He looks at Vortex. "Unless you'd really like to stir up some trouble, in which case...stick around. It might be fun." He smirks. "Especially since I just sharpened my claws."

Rung has posed:
Rung only nods politely in farewell to the Decepticons. Lacking a mobile altmode of his own, he climbs into the purple mini-bus's interior. Looks like that's how he's getting home.

Starlock has posed:
     and with Rung loaded up, Starlock blares her horn, and follows after Hyperdrive, zipping past him... She was pretty fast, even in her alt mode.

Vortex has posed:
Vortex starts to move again, rubbing his head. "slaggit, they're gone. Im gonna get him next time."

Ravage has posed:
Ravage sighs and watches the Autobots depart before turning to regard Vortex. "Well...aren't you a work of art." He shakes his head slowly. "I assume you can get home on your own power from here... Pity they didn't want to pick a proper fight." He hops down from his perch and looks critically at the Combaticon. "You're a mess. You might want to clean up before Onslaught comes to find you."

Vortex has posed:
Vortex nods to Ravage. "Right. With luck, Onslaught won't even know what happened." Oh Vortex. What little he knows.
