Synopsis: Hyperdrive is brought in for repairs after His and Swivel's tussle with Vortex and Blast off.
Cast of Characters: Swivel, Hyperdrive, Starlock


Swivel has posed:
It seemed like a long shuttle from Luna-2 back to the Decagon. Hyperdrive had been strapped in and administered some first aid to prepare him for travel, since the prison medical facilities were not quit adequate, and busy tending to prisoners.

Swivel had stayed with Hyperdrive for the ride back to Cybertron, and then the second shuttle from the spacecraft to the repair bay. And she walks in when Hyperdrive, with a scalpel lodged further into his head through his optic, than can be healthy. Swivel herself looked more dented and banged up than anything, with only one noted laceration that also looked like it was made from a scalpel. But she's mobile, and doesn't seem to even notice. Hyperdrive is brought in for proper medical attention, and Swivel keeps close by until told to back away, or given any other instruction.

Hyperdrive has posed:
Hyperdrive is...unfortunately aware again. Aware and very much hating his life. He can't see and what he is getting from his HUD is a whole bunch of red and nothing is making sense at this point. Though both optics are dim, it isn't hard to tell that Hyperdrive is very much awake and aware. His vents are open and working overtime to cool him down while his body is primed to for defence. He's purposely got a light forcefields kinda buzzing anyone near him. It's not a full shield. But from his expression, he's aware of anyone who brushes through or around the field. It's probably a good thing that he can't access his weaponry right this moment. "A-are you gettin fixed Swiv?"

Starlock has posed:
     Starlock is there waiting, her hands sterilized and mask slipped in place.. her optics are dimmer than normal, but the rest of her says she's in work mode by how straight her posture is. She doesn't say anything, and once Hyperdrive is on the medberth, she gets to work.

     Dampening his pain sensors, and then slowly working to ensure that removing the scalpel won't damage anything else, or that it's keeping him from bleeding out in some way.

     She'd glance up and optic over Swivel a moment before continuing, and then finally speaking in a soft tone. "...She'll get repaired, don't worry... She's not being tended to just yet, means she's not in any danger." she'd explain. Level of priority was a thing after all.

Swivel has posed:
Swivel nods when Starlock explains. She then softly adds, "You're somewhere safe, so there's no need to fight anymore." From the looks of Starlock, the last thing she needs is a fiesty patient. Swivel stands back, giving Starlock ample space to work. "And like a well behaved femme, I will sit and wait my turn rather than run off half cocked, damaged, and get myself into more trouble." With a smile Swivel takes a seat on a nearby unoccupied berth.

Hyperdrive has posed:
Hyperdrive buzzes Starlock twice in agitation but at least doesn't try to hit her with the forcefield or anything else for that matter. As the pain seems to stop, he just stays still. Unfortunately it doesn't stop the trembling through his frame. His expression is of fear is kept only to the slight rattle of plating as Starlock is trying to work on his face. Vortex knew what he was aiming for. The damage might have not been so bad had he not used his head to smash the scalpel in further. He's also got some frame damage from being shuttle smooshed but the scalpel seems to be the worst of it.

Starlock has posed:
     They couldn't see it, but Swivel had managed to get Starlock to crack a grin, despite how she was feeling. "But that takes all the fun out of it." she'd chuckle weakly.

     She'd then glance over and ask one of the nurses there to gather a set of parts for her, as she continued to work on the damage to Hyperdrive's optic. flinching slightly at the buzzing, but she forces her hands to remain steady. "....It's alright, I'm not going to hurt you." She'd murmur softly. "...I'd hold your hand, but, I kind of need them both." She'd chuckle weakly.

Swivel has posed:
"Hyperdrive." Swivel speaks firmly but not unkindly. "Hyperdrive," she says more gently. "I know it's scary, but you need to help Starlock help you." Swivel looks over at Starlock and holding up her hand. She tries mouthing 'should I' and gives an inquisitive head tilt, points to her hand, then points to Hyperdrive. The reason for this silent communication is to avoid expectation on Hyperdrive's part.

Hyperdrive has posed:
Hyperdrive is still shaking and frowning. "I know...I know I know I know I know....I keep tellin myself I'm not there...I'm not there. I...I hate bein so scared. I can't see and nothin is makin sense and I..I'm gettin gibberish fer readouts and and...part of me starts thinkin this is all a trick but I'm tryin ta remind myself I'm not there, that we got free and then I'm worried that I'm wrong and I only thought I broke free and that this is vortex's doin and....I'm sorry I'm tryin ta stay really still and I know you got the pain to stop but I'm still afraid."

Starlock has posed:
     Starlock gave Swivel a nod, it would definitely help in comforting, and allow her to work. "...It's okay to be scared, we're all scared, and miserable.. Nothin' to be ashamed of." She'd reply with a nod as she kept working, focusing on repairing the damage. "I'll get your optic and hus fixed up, don't worry... Till then, try and focus on the sound of our voices, okay?"

Swivel has posed:
Swivel slips off of the berth and walks over. "Hyperdrive. It's Swivel." Like she really needs to tell him. Certainly, he knows the sound of her voice. But she is not sure if his hearing is effected at all along with his vision. "I am going to hold your hand." She explains, then slowly brings her hand close to his, and if his forcefields don't repel her, she fits her dainty hand into his. "I've still got that pendant you gave me. Vortex wouldn't know about that, would he. This is all real, and you are safe."

Hyperdrive has posed:
Hyperdrive tenses and then calms, "No...he wouldn't know about it...or..or the juggling ball. Rung wants me ta get new ones. But keep that one safe. It was the oldest i had...I'd had them forever. Did the others in the troop make it out of the blast?" He tries to shake his head to clear it. Luckily Starlock has him locked into position but there is a frown on his face. "W-where are we?"

Starlock has posed:
     Starlock frowned, but kept working to repair the damage. "Decagon, Repair bay." She'd reply simply as she got the scalpel removed, and started on repairing the wires and damaged circuits. She would follow up by stating the time, date, and year to Hyperdrive as she worked.

     She'd give Swivel a thankful nod.

Swivel has posed:
Swivel nods back to Starlock, smiling. She gives a modest shake of her head and looks back to Hyperdrive. "Of course, I always keep it safe. It would be good for you to keep working on your juggling. It brings smiles to a lot of people. We could use more smiles around here." Swivel speaks soothingly, gently patting the back of his hand. She's ready to scoot this way or that so as not to be too much in Starlock's way, constantly looking up to watch for any cues from Starlock.

Hyperdrive has posed:
Hyperdrive frowns, "I like makin people smile....b-better than watchin the aristocrats. Their smiles were so fake. Th-they didn't actually care ta watch us. Like watchin the poor mechs enjoy the show. THey were honest in their appreciation. It...just wasn't a full show anymore but I tried my best. I couldn't do it all though." He frowns and grips the hand and then sighs, "Decagon...Prowl....What about Tapout. WHen are we....no...we got him back or are we gettin him back."

Starlock has posed:
     "...We could, things have been much too... gloomy, around here." She'd add. Starlock was standing at the side of Hyperdrive's damaged optic, not moving to much, but ensuring she had elbow room. Using a then set of thin tools to repair the damage slowly.

     "...He's safe, back here." She'd remind, checking the connections in the wound as she remained somber, but professional. "Everything will be okay."

Swivel has posed:
Swivel just listens to Hyperdrive ramble, occasionally looking up to watch Starlock. She's unsure whether or not to be concerned about his disorientation. "Tapout is safe." Swivel reassures.

While Swivel is standing there trying to keep Hyperdrive calm, one of the other medics approaches, but keeps a respectful distance. "Ensign, we can see to you now." Swivel nods to them, and then turns briefly back to Hyperdrive.

"Alright, I am going to go get fixed up spic and span. You be good for Starlock, now, you hear?" Swivel gives Hyperdrive's hand a squeeze and then lets go, walking away with the other medic on duty.

Hyperdrive has posed:
Hyperdrive gives Swivel's hand a final squeeze and then just frowns as She moves away. He starts muttering "Gone...gonegonegonegone....they're all gone....w-why did I live and not them...why. Did he die too Why isn't he there....the bodies....I'm not a body...." He shudders, apparently in a bit of a panic but at least staying still for Starlock.

Starlock has posed:
     Starlock frowned, and doubled checked to ensure all the damage was fixed, and parts replaced. Her finials drooped, her optics further dimming as she listens and retreats deeper and deeper into her thoughts. "...I don't know.. But you are, and that's what matters... Your alive, and able to keep their memories alive, and to keep them from being forgotten." she'd mumble. "And no one deserves to be forgotten, or left behind."

Hyperdrive has posed:
Hyperdrive seems to be slowly relaxing despite his fears and ramblings. He offers a faint smile, "G-glad yer still here....can ya make sure that Swiv is fixed. She tries ta do too much." He winces slightly and then grins. "Still have my friends....." He paranoid freaked out bot seems to finally relax enough to allow himself to fall into recharge, which should let Starlock work easier. At least the annoying shield buzz stops.

Starlock has posed:
     Starlock gave something of a smile behind her mask, but her optics did indicate it was there as the dim light softend. "Course.. I always do.. I always make sure to tend to everyone's wounds."

     Once he was out, she'd glance to where his badge was, and scowled at it, but sighed and just.. patted where it was. She'd ensure all the damage was repaired, before she went about installing the new optic.
