View Full Version : Halloween Party '10
09-24-2010, 08:31 PM
((This is open to anyone who feels like jumping in. Hope this winds up being a little more populous than last year's))
*Scene: just off the side of the road, somewhere in the middle of the desert nearish the Ark. The sky shimmers briefly, before being filled with dark clouds and a TF-sized creepy looking house (http://www.bobbysmonstermodels.com/images/addams_house.jpg), surrounded by equally creepy looking statuary, a graveyard, and a heavy iron fence. The camera tracks in (Camera? Just work with me here, alright?) through the fence, up a short path, and up to the front door, which slowly creeks open, revealing LF, standing about Skyfire-height, painted white, wearing a rather worn old butler’s uniform*
*cue the first few cords of the theme (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vVDJvrBFDDc)*
*Meanwhile, inside the ballroom*
(Mortitia) How the heck am I supposed to MOVE in this stupid thing?
(Gomez) I dunno, but black is certainly your color.
(Cousin Itt) You think you have it bad? I can’t even SEE. How do I get talked into these things?
(Wednesday) Don’t even get me started on how wrong my casting is.
(Pugsley) Oh, quit your complaining, you can’t all have costumes as simple as “Lord” Darkbane’s.
*One of Vidwave’s hands pops out of a box nearby and just hangs limply over the side*
*looking over at Thingwave* Well, at least one of us has it worse. Sorry, Vid.
*Vid’s hand waves dismissively*
So, where is our “illustrious leader” anyway?
*an explosion goes off just outside the ballroom door, the doors open slowly with black smoke billowing through and a bald humanoid in a ratty brown tunic walks in, cackling madly*
(Fester) HAHAHAHAHA! WOW that was invigorating.
Now then… we’re sure to have people showing up any time now, so everybody be ready. *snaps fingers twice*
She’s in the garden.
…why are we stuck as tv characters and she gets to be an Egyptian queen?
Wrong Cleopatra. That’s the name of Mortitia’s carnivorous plant.
Well it was either her or Grandmama, and I figured that one would get me killed by both of you two.
[Well alright then. Let's get this show on the road.]
Overhead, a blue and yellow cybertronian jet circled slowly. It's sensors swept over the area around the strange building twice more before the bot came to one solid conclusion. there was a party going on down there, and he'd be damned if he was going to miss it. You never know who you might "meet" at a party...
He banked around, pulling the turn into a sharp dive, angling towards the front door. As the ground hurtled towards him, he transformed and with repulsers blazing, came to rest on the front walkway. He dusted himself off methodically, and then with a grin, Fourway made his way towards the front door.

( I agree with Crog ^_^ lets get all out rpers back plz! )
Beepbop walked slowly toward the "creepy looking house" Slagpit had set up. Why did he have to be so elaborate? She was already nervous as hell. She thought to herself. Last year she had awkwardly walked in on the party, not knowing what it was but this year she has an idea of what was going on. She had fastened large feathered wings to her back and a silver hoop was hovering above her head. How she got it to stay like that....she didn't even know. Thats when a blue jet swooped down further up causing her to squeek in surprise and hide behind a nearby statue
(You can either find her there or walk by her guys, i'll figure out what to do from that point xP )

It had been quite awhile since Freefall had been to a proper shindig, so she'd jumped at the opportunity with both hands and large quantities of paint. Instead of her typical coloring, she was now red and black, with a white "collar" and white "facepaint" to match. Her visor seemed to be taking the place of the typical "domino" mask of the costume, but her helmet now had a pair of tails (or ears, depending on your point of view) with bells on, making it look just like an enormous jester hat. (In short, she looked an awful lot like this (http://www.sidekickcomicsuk.com/blogs/media/blogs/sidekick//harley.jpg))
Touching down at the end of the walk that led up to the house, the Seekerette stopped and stared at the gigantic mansion for a long minute, head tilted to the side. Finally, she muttered, "I don't get it..." Then shrugged, and started up the walk. There would be free energon! Who cares what the place looked like, right?
09-29-2010, 11:49 AM
Crouching motionless in the shadows among the statuary, Stealthshadow waited for the opportune moment to spring out and scare whomever traveled up the path to the party. Decked out with a stony gray textured paint job, large horns attached to the sides of his helmet, fangs, and a long tail, the shadowy flier prowled between the gravestones and the grotesques that he based his costume on.
The roar of the jet engine drew his optics skyward, but it was the sudden movement on the path and loud squeak that brought an evil grin to his fanged mouth. The first quarry had arrived. He crept towards the figure cowering behind a statue as silently as moonlight on water until he was right behind them. The figure seemed to be hiding, but that did not stop him from his insidious plan, especially since he could now hear someone else approaching. He leaned over the figure, arms outstretched with hand curled like vicious claws and his wings spread out dramatically behind him and growled, 'Rwarrrrrrrr.'
((Mwha ha ha ha))
09-29-2010, 10:48 PM
Beepbop took a few deep intakes trying to calm herself down she was getting scared way to easily. She was about to step back out onto the path when she heard something creep up behind her. She spun around just in time for a large grey...thing to rawr in her face. She squeeked really loudly her stun gun pulled from her sub space into her hand and pointed at her "attacker"
(( Really Stealth really? xD
Meany going around scaring defensless femmes :p ))
09-30-2010, 10:05 PM
*a broad smirk grew across Slagpit's face as he cupped a hand around one ear at the distant sound of the roar and squeeks*
My friends, I do believe our guests have started arriving.
Oh. Joy. I. Can barely. Contain. Myself.
Sarcasm, not appreciated, Dark.
Seriously, anyone want to trade with me?
Yeah, why couldn't Life be Flinx's character?
She's too tall.
I don't recall any of the Addamses... well, aside from maybe Lurch... being TF size to begin with.
Hey, you all brought it on yourselves by messing up my original idea.
*zip-pan flashback, showing the various SLF crew dressed as one another.*
MY WINGS ARE NOT THAT FAT!
Oh yeah? I know you've put a few pounds on that bodyshell since you hijacked it!
You don't look anything like me.
I put on a hat, didn't I?
You just don't get the spirit of this, do you?
RUN! SPARKY'S GOT MY BOMBS!
*Everyone shudders at the memory, aside from Sparksmasher who just chuckles*
So we went with my backup plan. Now come on, people, this is a party! Have fun! That's an order, Wolfbane.
Whatever. You need me, I'll be out in the garden.
_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
*Meanwhile, at the door*
*The large double doors swing open creekily, LurchFormer standing at attention beyond the threshhold, quirking an eyebrow at the arrival of Fourway*
Well, I have to admit, didn't expect him to show up...Costume?
*he then looked over the blue and yellow jet's shoulder at another vaguely-familiar arrival*
Ms. Freefall. Welcome. Reception is in the ballroom, just down the hall.
((a Seeker Harley Quinn... I like it. Will we be seeing Sunstorm as Joker, then?))
09-30-2010, 10:19 PM
Stealthshadow stops in mid spook and looks at the gun with surprise. "Either you're expecting a Decepticon attack or you're really skittish tonight."
Holding his arms out to his sides, he models his costume for Beepbob with beaming pride. "Do you like my costume? I looked it up on the human internet. Seems they put these stone 'gargoyles' on their buildings to scare away evil spirits. Do you like it?"
((Couldn't help it. I was trying to think of a way to enter this rp and you gave the perfect opportunity!))
10-01-2010, 12:02 AM
Freefall waved cheerfully to LF over Fourway's shoulder. "Hey, big guy! Long time no see!" She sidled around the other jet and poked her head through the door, then leaned back out again to make a show of looking the house over. "This place is snazzy! You guys sure know how to throw a party."
((While I cannot confirm a Sunstorm/Jester, it would, indeed, be epic. :D))
10-01-2010, 02:11 AM
Beepbop stood there frozen for a second. She barely knew how to use the thing she was holding in her hand. What more depressing though was that it took her even longer to realize who was standing before her even after he started talking. Stealth.. she thought to herself he would she continued giving him a not so impressed look. She instantly subspaced the gun, though she was tempted to shoot him anyway since it would onlt STUN him.
He did have a point though she was WAY too jumpy right now and needed to calm down.
She circled him when he modelled his costume for her it was definatly unusual and a lot more unique then hers. When he said it was to ward of evil spirits she wanted to say SHE wasn't one but instead just pointed at the halo floating ontop of her head crossing her arms in front of her smirking. Angels were supposed to be GOOD spirits silly.
(( I know xD I intended it to be an opening. Though I must admit I didn't expect a friend of hers to decide to scare the daylights out of her xD ))
10-01-2010, 02:39 AM
Stares at the halo over her head for a moment before breaking into a wide, fanged grin. "I'm not sure you can pull off being an angel, especially one who's quick to pull a gun on someone. Maybe some 'Cons will show up and we can chase them around? You can send them to the Pit and I'll..." He paused for a moment as he realized there was no mention as to what gargoyles did other than scare evil. "Er... I'll just scare them!"
Fourway cocked his head at that. Costume? He hadn't known this was supposed to be a fancy dress party. As Freefall came up behind him he looked her up and down and gave her a cheeky grin before turning back to LF.
"I'm afraid I haven't got one. I didn't realize one wa required."
10-02-2010, 09:23 PM
As Nightfire approached the house where the party was to take place she stopped long enough to check her costume and make sure it was all in place.
Red knee-high boots? Check.
Bulletproof bracelets? Check.
Golden tiara? Check.
Sparkly paintjob in red white and blue and gold? Check.
Lasso of Truth? Check.
Feeling confident that she was the best looking Wonder Woman robot around, she headed up the path that lead up to the front door. She was so excited that she was practically skipping as she walked along. It had been ages since she'd been to a party and she hoped that it would be a good one.
10-03-2010, 01:21 PM
Borealis transformed and landed in front of the building. Coloured like a famous web slinger, he hoped no one had as little imagination as him to have the same costume. He was very worried (and a bit paranoid) as he had never been to a party before.
10-03-2010, 11:24 PM
Stealthshadow caught a glimpse of something bright and sparkling out of the corner of his optics and turned to glance at the path. It was Nightfire skipping towards the house in a costume that, while it looked good on her, made him snicker. He composed himself long enough to wave and call out to her. "Hey Nightfire! Did you raid Starscream's closet?"
10-04-2010, 11:03 AM
Beepbop frowned up at her friend that was mean! Ok maybe she did pull the gun out a bit too quickly BUT it was only a stun gun geez. After that though she just giggled he had no idea what exactly gargoyles did, she didn't either but it was still fun to laugh at him.
When Stealth turned she did as well, now that was an interesting costume she thought looking over at "Nightfire" as Stealth had called her.
(( DC/ Marvel love anyone? xD
So far we've got Harley Quinn, Wonder Women and Spiderman, I wonder who's next? xD ))
10-04-2010, 03:52 PM
Nightfire turned to see who had addressed her, tilted her head at the sight before her and broke into laughter.
"Stealthshadow? Is that you under there?" Poking at bits of his costume, she shook her head again before pouting slightly and adjusting her tiara, "And no, I did not raid Starscream's closet at all!"
Turning to the angelbot, "Good evening. I believe we have met before, but it was quite some time ago now. The name's Nightfire. And you're... Beepbop, right?" She then noticed another mech there and waved a greeting, "Hello, I don't think I've ever met you before. As you probably just heard, I'm Nightfire."
10-04-2010, 08:14 PM
Stealthshadow gave a goofy grin with his fake fangs at Nightfire and leaned closer to Beepbop to whisper, "Is she supposed to be Starscream as a femme?"
Then he saw the other mech and realized he didn't know who he was dressed as either. He leaned back to Beepbop, "Maybe I shoulda researched this Halloween stuff more."
10-04-2010, 08:38 PM
Borealis turned to hear someone talking " Was that hello directed to me?". "If it was then hello. Im borealis. Nice to meet you Nightfire " " How about you two who seem to be accompaning her. Who might you two be?" As he gave a wave he accidently caused a webshooter he added to his wrists to go off in his face. After pulling it off he glowed a faint red. "please excuse the glowing. It has no purpose but show my mood and make me a transforming disco jet."
10-05-2010, 11:38 PM
Beepbop thought about what Stealthshadow told her about Nightfire's costume for a second. Then ran female starscream through a human search engine as well as trying to match the costume with it.
The results she sent him. Though they were rather odd to say the least.
she then attempted to cross the two....
no that didn't look right at all. she thought to herself.
the first one made the most sense.
She nodded up at Nightfire when she asked whether that was her name and couldn't help but laugh when the new bot sprayed himself in the face then.... glowed? He was just like a lightbulb!
((I honestly don't remeber when Nightfire met Beepbop ._.
oh and the picture were for fun xD anyone wants the links to them I have them all :3 cause i'm no art theif! xD ))
10-06-2010, 12:09 AM
*A purple and black mech, named Nightshade, who was one of Shockcharge's sentient robots, approached the house, looking around abit, the cloak wrapped about his shoulders and clasped at his neck swaying with his movements. Half of Nightsade's face was white, and he cluched a red rose in his left hand. He then looked at the Metroplex sized robot standing next to it.*
"You know Shockcharge, you can stand somewhere else besides here. You look like a statue."
*Shockcharge said nothing (as usual), but his red optics flickered slightly as he scanned his surroundings. Nightshade sighed as he tugged at his cloak.*
"Okay then.. I'm going inside. Try not to make tremors and knock any buildings down."
*The calm and silent robot grunted before speaking* "Nightshade, just go in.. I wasn't planning to move anyway.."
*Nightshade shrugged and made his way to the front door, eager to meet the other inside. Shockcharge glanced down at the three robots. Looking at them for a few seconds, he noticed a seeker who was dressed like a certain Marvel/DC heroine. Then he looked at the pink one, who looked like she was confused.*
"Excuse me, I don't mean to barge in, but I believe Nightfire is supposed to be Wonder Woman.."
10-06-2010, 04:17 AM
Stealthshadow gave a fanged grin to Borealis. "I'm Stealthshadow and the angel here is Beepbop. She doesn't really talk. And... what's a disco jet? Is that a human aircraft?"
Right at that moment the datastream from Beepbop hit him like a ton of titanium bricks and his jovial mood turned into a sickened retching noise. He attempted to regain his cool and looked at the angelfemme, "Why? Why did you show me that? Good thing I didn't fuel up before the party, otherwise I would have emptied fueltanks right here."
He looked up at the other newcomer and his comment at Nightfire's costume. "Wonder Woman? I'm going to take a stab and say that is some human celebrity and not..." He shot another sickened look at Beepbop. "And not what those other things are."
10-06-2010, 11:03 AM
She smiled up at Borealis and the other bot that had appeared when she was introduced. But it turned to a look of guilt when Stealthshadow seemed to get sick by viewing the images. The ear-like things on her helmet drooped as well as the wings on her back. She was only trying to help understand what Nightfire was dressed up as.
When the newer bot mentioned Wonder Woman the first image came up in the search engine again. So she was kinda right... she thought to herself. She was tempted to show Stealthshadow the first image again but didn't want to upset him more.
She sat down leaning against the grave stone she had hid by earlier pulling her knees up and resting her arms on them. She wasn't feeling very good anymore and figured she couldn't talk so she wouldn't be much of a contribution to the conversation anyway
10-06-2010, 03:03 PM
*Shockcharge took notice at the pink female who looked like she was upset. He didn't catch her name, but he felt kinda bad for saying what he said. After all, he had not introduced himself or his smaller component*
"I'm sorry.. I'm haven't introduced myself.. I'm Shockcharge.. and the smaller bot is Nightshade.."
*The city-sized robot sighed and shook his head slightly*
"I don't understand the holiday.. I don't understand any holiday for that matter.."
10-06-2010, 07:21 PM
borealis glared at the little bot for laughing but stopped seeing the bot look upset. " no a disco jet does not exist i just made it up. ive never heard of a glowing human aircraft unless its on fire." upon looking at the spooky house he began to hum a song he heard in a human halloween film
10-07-2010, 04:33 AM
Stealthshadow gaped as Beepbop sat down looking crushed. "Hey, Beep, wait. It's okay really. I'm not mad. I just didn't want to see Starscream in that way." He held his hands out to her to help her up, "Please cheer up? I'm not mad."
10-07-2010, 11:15 AM
(Gah! So much all at once!)
Nightfire laughed at the pictures Beepbop had sent, but then noticed her looking rather down.
"Oh Beepbot, don't let the old grump get to you," Nightfire said and playfully bumped against Stealthshadow. "He doesn't think before he speaks sometimes."
Turning her attention back to Borealis she gave him a smile, "It's nice to meet you. And the... blushing... (as I believe the humans call it) is kind of cute."
"But yes, Shockcharge is right. I'm dressed as Wonder Woman. Now, I don't know about the rest of you, but I believe the party is supposed to take place in there," she said and pointed at the house. "As pleasant as it is out here, I'm dying for a drink."
With that, she sashayed inside.
10-07-2010, 05:27 PM
borealis looked towards everyone still outside "so we gonna join the party or are we going to stand out here and look like ornaments." "cause im gonna go join the ones inside. there bound to be some new people for me to meet" he then walked to the house while still humming.
10-07-2010, 08:55 PM
*breaking character for a moment, the shrunken city-bot proceeded to give the Decepticon multiformer a more verbose response than his costume-sake would normally give.*
Well, this is a Halloween party, and it is traditional for these types of parties to be "fancy dress" as some call them. If you need, I'm sure Slagpit could come up with something for you, but knowing your... *ahem* creativity, I'm sure you can throw something together.
*LF then gave his best approximation to Lurch's usual groan and returned to a stone-faced look as he waved the tide of newcomers toward the ballroom, where Slagpit and most of his merry band (aside from Wolfbane/Itt who had wandered off) were already busy milling about. Flinx/Wednesday and Slagpit/Fester were busy setting up the kareoke systems, Sparksmasher/Pugsly and Vidwave/Thing were attending to the refreshments, while Darkbane/Gomez and Wingwrath/Mortitia were in the middle of a tango on the dance floor*
You two could help, you know.
I am helping. I'm getting in character.
And I'm keeping him out of trouble.
Eh, let them dance, Flinx... gives us less characters we have to keep track of anyway.
Well now I know why you didn't come dressed as the fourth wall.
Exactly. "What fourth wall?"
10-07-2010, 09:02 PM
Freefall, being more than happy to meander towards the free food, sidled up to the buffet table and started loading up a plate with energon goodies.
10-07-2010, 10:20 PM
Stealthshadow glared with indignation at the sashaying Nightfire. "Old? OLD? I'm not that old!"
He looked back at Beepbop with his hand still held out to her, "Grumpy I'll admit to, and I'm sorry if I upset you Beep. Let's go inside with the others." He glanced back at the doorway that Nightfire disappeared through. "I'll show her that I'm not old."
10-08-2010, 02:22 AM
Beepbop glanced up slightly as she was spoken to. The only thing that really cheered her up though was when Nightfire poked fun at Stealth, she giggled slightly. Looking at Stealth's hand for a minute, but then grabbed hold of it so he could help her up. Being sad the entire time wasn't going to help she thought to herself.
She then looked up at Shockcharge and Nightshade, beeped at them and waved them to go with her and Stealth. She also sent the bigger robot a few pictures of kids dressed up enjoying themselves as they recieved candy at people's door in an attempt to give him more of an understanding, since he had mentioned before he didn't understand the holiday.
10-09-2010, 08:58 PM
Nightfire made a beeline for the refreshments, desperate for a drink.
"One cube please," she requested from Vidwave.
As she waited, she looked around to get the lie of the land and see who else was there as well as making note of the karaoke machine. Maybe later...
10-09-2010, 09:10 PM
Stealthshadow guided Beepbop up the walkway, still fuming about Nightfire's 'old' comment and siletnly vowed to get even with her. He was unsure if the other two mechs were following them.
At the doorway to the house, he looked up at LF, who seemed to be acting like a sort of doorman from his best guess, and produced an orange bag from a subspace pocket. He held it up to LF and grinned with his fake fangs. "Er, trick or treat?"
10-12-2010, 09:40 PM
*LF looked down at the bag, reached behind him, and pulled out a box, which then opened, from which Thingwave's hand popped out (yay subspace pocket fun) and dropped some energon goodies into the profered bag*
*Meanwhile, in the ballroom, Vidwave's other hand provided Nightfire with her requested refreshment*
10-13-2010, 01:56 AM
Stealthshadow stared in surprised shock as Thingwave's disembodied hand actually gave him free goodies for just the strange phrase. He looked into the bag and then back up at LF and Thingwave's hand. "Primus on a pogo stick... I didn't think people actually gave you free goodies. This human holiday tradition has just made my stellar cycle."
He glanced around the room to see who else he could ask for free candy and spotted Nightfire sipping a drink. He frowned and muttered under his breath, 'I'm not that old.' He leaned over to Beepbop, "If you'll excuse me, I have people to terrorize." He looked up at LF again and shook his goodie bag, "Thanks for the goodies!"
And then he teleported, fangs and all, to the space right behind Nightfire.
10-13-2010, 06:09 AM
*Shockcharge sighed as he watched the others enter the house. Since he was just standing there taking up space, he might as well take a nap. Just as he was about to power himself down, his sensors went off, making him jump slightly. He wondered what could've made them go off until he saw the image Beepbop sent him.*
"So this is what Halloween is.. Interesting.. I kind of get it now.."
*After he had looked at the image, he proceeded to power himself down, but not before emitting a light snore.
Nightshade had made he way inside the house and looked around abit. He noticed the karaoke machine, grining abit in the process. He ambled over the the refreshments.*
"Heh. A karaoke machine.. that should be fun.. Cuse me, can I get a cube please?"
10-15-2010, 09:44 PM
As Borealis strolled by the guest with a wave and a double take on seeing the hand on its own he goes to the bar. "scuse me can i have some drink please." at this point he was also think "hhmmmmm a karioke machine looks like fun"
10-16-2010, 05:21 PM
Nightfire sipped her cube and offered a smile to Borealis and Nightshade, "Yes. Apparently karaoke is quite popular with humans. Well some. Some just think it's a bunch of drunken fools catterwauling." Her smile grew and she winked, "Who says it can't be a bit of both though, right?"
And poor Nightfire was completely unaware of the figure looming behind her. DUN DUN DUUUUUN!
10-17-2010, 01:46 AM
Beepbop stared at the place she had been led into, Slagpit had outdone himself this year. Her optics scanned the place until they rested on LF. She was just as shocked as Stealth when the disembodied hand came out of the box and gave Stealth candy. Freaky much?
She watched Stealth teleport shuddering slightly, she never enjoyed teleporting the feeling was horrible. So even watching people do it was slightly uncomfortable to her. Not knowing really what else to do she sat down beside where LF was standing, both energon and karaoke was a bad idea for a femme who, 1 couldn't talk and 2 got sick when drinking anything other than low grade.
10-17-2010, 04:35 AM
Nightshade let out a snicker at Nightfire's reply. "Of course it can be both. I don't see why people call it catterwauling, I think it's funny. Not that I've done it though." Nightshade resumed waiting for his drink, he spotted Beepbob near LF. "I wonder what bothering her." he thought. "By the way Nightfire, Stealthshadow is behind you. Just thought I'd let you know."
10-17-2010, 08:20 AM
borealis snickered. "yes i agree why not both. plus im sure being both makes it more entertaining to watch" .then leaning to Nightshade he whispered "spoilsport". Then he began to glug his first drink. his light glowed yellow because hes was happy of 2 things. First he loves high-grade. Secondly hes looking forward to getting over-energized
10-17-2010, 08:55 AM
Nightshade glanced over at Borealis with a a grin on his face. "Me? A spoilsport? Naw, I do believe you're mistaken." He snickered. "I'm just kidding. I admit I am a spoilsport. A very good one." His mind wandered for a few seconds before he jerked back into reality.
10-19-2010, 01:54 PM
Stealthshadow had been prepared to scare Nightfire with his hands raised and fake fangs bared, but when Nightshade ratted him out he casually placed a hand on her shoulder and flashed a charming grin instead. "What? I'm not allowed to share my Halloween goodie haul with a femme?"
10-19-2010, 03:49 PM
Nightshade gave a confused look at Stealthshadow, scratching his head in the process. "I don't get it.. Weren't you going to scare her?" he asked. "I did see you back there with your hands raised.."
10-20-2010, 07:25 AM
"I don't know what you're talking about." Stealthshadow lifted his hand from Nightfire's shoulder, gave a mighty stretch and nonchalantly dropped an arm around the femme's shoulders. He gave Nightshade a cheesy fanged grin, "Why would I scare Nightfire? She's such a sweet old femme that a proper scare might make her spark stop."
10-20-2010, 10:29 AM
"Wha.. She's OLD? I beg to differ. She's not old." Nightshade glanced at Nightshade, then back at Stealthshadow. "She might look OLD to you but she doesn't to me." he replied.
10-20-2010, 05:27 PM
Borealis leant over to whisper to Nightshade "She isnt old hes just making up for being called old back outside. Im guessing scaring her was for that too."
10-20-2010, 07:57 PM
Nightfire looked rather clueless for a moment until she felt the weight of Stealth's hand on her shoulder. Unwittingly her faceplates flushed warm and she looked between Nightshade, Borealis and Stealthshadow.
"Goodies, huh? Not energon toffees though, right?" she asked, her face flushing warmer with Stealth's arm settling around her shoulders. Her processor whirled madly, Oh Primus, oh Primus, oh Pri- OLD!?
For one moment, the expression on her face was one of utter disbelief that Stealthshadow would have the audacity to call her old!
Giving him a disarming smile, she turned to face him and trailed a finger down his canopy, "Well Stealth, you ought to know about how fragile older systems can be considering that yours are positively ancient."
10-20-2010, 08:42 PM
*While the majority of the guests were gathered around the snack table bickering, Slagpit and Flinx were still busy putting the final touches on the kareoke machines and speakers*
Hey, "Mortitia", we're ready for a sound test if ya don't mind giving her a bit of a rest, "Gomez".
Well, what do you think, 'wrath?
Well, given that it's near impossible to move freely in this thing, yes, please.
Oh, very well.
*Darkbane and Wingwrath made their way over to the microphones along with Sparksmasher, simply because I need more people on this song (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=syckLQQBShc)*
Ok, Flinx, you listen in on the speakers over there, I'll take care of this side. Whenever you're ready, catbird.
Is she really going out with him?
Well, there she is. Let's ask her.
Betty, is that Jimmy's ring you're wearing?
Gee, it must be great riding with him
Is he picking you up after school today?
By the way, where'd you meet him?
I met him at the candy store
He turned around and smiled at me
You get the picture? (yes, we see)
That's when I fell for (the leader of the pack)
My folks were always putting him down (down, down)
They said he came from the wrong side of town
(whatcha mean when ya say that he came from the wrong side of town?)
They told me he was bad
But I knew he was sad
That's why I fell for (the leader of the pack)
(Flinx, up 3 decibles on #5, and I'll adjust # 6 over here... ok, I think we got it now....)
One day my dad said, "Find someone new"
I had to tell my Jimmy we're through
(whatcha mean when ya say that ya better go find somebody new?)
He stood there and asked me why
But all I could do was cry
I'm sorry I hurt you (the leader of the pack)
He sort of smiled and kissed me goodbye
The tears were beginning to show
As he drove away on that rainy night
I begged him to go slow
But whether he heard, I'll never know
Look out! Look out! Look out! Look out!
I felt so helpless, what could I do?
Remembering all the things we'd been through
In school they all stop and stare
I can't hide the tears, but I don't care
I'll never forget him the leader of the pack
The leader of the pack - now he's gone
The leader of the pack - now he's gone
The leader of the pack - now he's gone
The leader of the pack - now he's gone
Thanks, you three, I think we're good.

Stealthshadow gave Borealis a small knowing nod, then turned a charming fanged smile on Nightfire. The momentarily shocked look on her faceplates was perfect and more satisfying than giving her a good scare would have been. He wondered how far he could push the envelope with Nightfire before she would kick his aft. "I might be a little rougher around the edges than most mechs here, but I'm not ancient. You do clean up good, though. You've convinced these two young mechs that you're not that timeworn."
He held up his bag of Halloween goodies under Nightfire's nasalplates. "I think there might be some energon toffees in here. Sweets for the sweet?"
10-21-2010, 05:42 PM
Borealis looked at the fight about to happen and said "well however fun it may be to listen to you two but im trying the karaoke" and so he begun to sing http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yw0aoVpFCDw
Well, well, well, what have we here?Sandy Claws, huh?Oh, I'm really scared
So you're the one everybody's talkin' about,
ha, ha, ha, ha
You're jokin', you're jokin'
I can't believe my eyes
You're jokin' me, you gotta be
This can't be the right guy
He's ancient, he's ugly
I don't know which is worse
I might just split a seam now
lf I don't die laughing first
When Mr. Oogie Boogie says
There's trouble close at hand
You'd better pay attention now'Cause I'm the Boogie Man
And if you aren't shakin'
Then there's something very wrong'
Cause this may be the last time now you hear the boogie song, ohhh
Ohhh, i'm the Oogie Boogie Man
Well if I'm feelin' antsy
And there's nothin' much to do
I might just cook a special batch
Of snake and spider stew
And don't ya know the one thing
That would make it work so nice?A roly-poly Sandy Claws to add a little spice
Oh, yeah, I'm the Oogie Boogie
You're jokin', you're jokin'I can't believe my ears
Would someone shut this fella up
I'm drownin' in my tears
It's funny, I'm laughing
You really are too much
And now, with your permission
I'm going to do my stuff
I'm gonna do the best I can
Oh, the sound of rollin' dice
To me is music in the air'
Cause I'm a gamblin' Boogie Man
Although I don't play fair
It's much more fun, I must confess
When lives are on the line
Not mine, of course, but yours, oldboy
Now that'd be just fine
Oh, brother, you're something
You put me in a spin
You aren't comprehending
The position that you're in
It's hopeless, you're finished
You haven't got a prayer'
Cause I'm Mr. Oogie BoogieAnd you ain't going nowhere
10-21-2010, 07:54 PM
"Clean up good! You make it sound as if I were around for the dawn of the war!" she exclaimed and slapped his shoulder. Looking at the others she said, "Don't listen to him. I'm only 4 earth years old!"
Taking a little sniff, Nightfire could catch the tantalizing whiff of some energon toffees.
"Don't mind if I do!" she chirped.
And although in the back of her mind she wondered what the catch was, she reached into the bag and stared to fish around for some toffees.
10-21-2010, 08:35 PM
"Careful Nightfire, you'll never know what kind of trick Stealthshadow has.." Nightshade said, looking abit worried. Just as he finished his sentence, he heard somebody doing the karaoke. Nightshade turned his head slightly to see who was singing. When he saw Borealis at the karaoke machine, he chuckled.
10-21-2010, 08:49 PM
"Aren't you one of the original 13? How old is four in earth years anyway?"
Stealthshadow glanced over at Nightshade and grinned. "A trick? From me? Never." His grin turned into a fanged smirk as Nightfire looked through the goodie bag. "It's not like I took any from Wheeljack's lab again. I just licked all of these."
10-22-2010, 06:19 PM
"See Stealth, you're only showing that you're getting confused in your old age. It is you who were one of the original 13, not me."
Nightfire triumphantly held up an energon toffee, her eyes glimmering at it as if it were some grand prize. Quickly she unwrapped it and popped it in her mouth...
Right as Stealthshadow made his revelation.
Her optics went wide and her jaw froze.
"Oo 'id wha?" she slurred around the toffee in her mouth.
10-22-2010, 07:54 PM
As Borealis walked back to check if the two had shut up yet he heard there argument and then saw Nightfire put the toffee in her mouth. "welp I hope the host has a good cleaner caus somethings goin over the floor"
10-23-2010, 07:57 AM
The smirk widened across Stealthshadow's fanged face. "I licked all of them. You see in my old age I couldn't tell what flavors they were, optics going bad and olfactory sensors almost offline, so I licked them all to see which ones I wanted to eat." He patted Nightfire on the back and then turned away to find something to drink.
10-24-2010, 06:28 PM
*After putting the Thing box down on a nearby table, LF reached down and gently patted Beepbop on top of her cranial unit, careful to not jostle the halo*
*he then turned to noone in particular*
“There there”? Seriously, couldn’t you have given me anyone else, perhaps a LITTLE more verbose?
*Suddenly, disappearing from the ballroom and reappearing next to LF, Festerpit was standing where LF had been addressing.*
Hey, it’s not MY fault you’re the biggest, most intimidating presence we’ve got. Hey, Beeps, good ta see ya, glad you could make it. There’s plenty of refreshments in the main ballroom, as well as music and dancing and… wait… oh, this is too good. Your costume has given me an idea, but first I gotta know; how good are you at lip synching?
*Meanwhile, in the ballroom, Sparksmasher was bringing out a fresh punch bowl when he accidently tripped, sloshing some of the punch out of the bowl and onto the floor under the table.*
Oops? Oops is a bad thing with you, Sparky, what happened?
First, don’t call me Sparky, second, I… um… think I spilled some punch on the holoemitter.
Oh, is that all? *starts to walk off, then stop and turns around, paniced* WHAT?!
*The weasel-bot pulled the sociopathic raptor to the side, away from prying ears*
‘Smasher, that’s a brand new experimental unit!
Big deal. What’s the worst that can happen, the hologram goes down and we’re all standing in the open on LF’s cement pad.
You don’t get it… usually Slagpit’s holoemitters only create enough holomatter to disguise the outer appearance of something or the inside of a room, like the Halloween party two years ago or our various externals for costumes and the like. We’ve never built one to create a whole environment before… not to mention Slagpit made special modifications just for this particular event to recreate a TV show set.
Look, pain for brains, we don’t know WHAT Slagpit’s done, and we don’t know what will happen if that thing shorts out! I knew putting it under the snack table was a bad idea.
So why did you?
Why else? Slagpit said those four words that we’ve all come to dread.
Oh pit. Not-
“What could go wrong?”
Wait… why are we being the exposition carriers this time?
Fourth wall is on strike for our various transgressions against it.
*zip-pan to a sign hanging in midair floating back and forth reading “SLF Group Unfair to Fourth Walls!” and zip-pan back*
I swear this place is getting more surreal the longer we’re here. Look, I’ll try to dry it off, you go and get Slagpit.
*back at the front door, LF and Slagpit’s costumes seem to have changed following a sudden *FZZZZTTTT* . They now resemble Andy Griffith and Barney Fife respectively*
What just happened?
I don’t know, but I have a sudden urge to whistle an annoyingly catchy tune while walking down to a fishing hole… and I don’t fish. FLINX!
*And, out in the garden…*
…what, we’re supposed to do something?
He’s a walking mound of hair with a hat, and I’m stuck in a plant. What are we supposed to do? Go ‘way.
10-24-2010, 07:35 PM
Not wanting to do something that might be construed as unladylike, Nightfire choked down the toffee. Besides, she knew that Stealth was fond of pranks and if she let him wind her up, she'd only be playing into his hands.
As Stealth went off to get another drink, Nightfire knew she was going to have to do something to get even with him. But what, she wasn't sure yet.
10-25-2010, 06:43 PM
Stealthshadow snickered as he heard the choking sound coming from Nightfire. Served her right for calling him old.
He picked up a cup to get some punch and saw smoke wafting up from under the table. He lifted the table cloth and saw some spilled punch, sparks, more smoke coming off a strange piece of machinery. Warnings began flashing over his processors: Unknown malfunctioning machinery at an SLF party. He dropped the table cloth back down slowly backed away. Should he tell someone or should he just run and take cover? Could he keep walking backwards and get out the door before the thing blew up or worse? Chances of an explosion seems slim. It was more likely to cause some other calamity or rip in the timespace continuum.
10-26-2010, 12:04 AM
Beepbop's ears bent out when LF patted her on the head. She smiled up at him slightly. He was a nice big bot especially since he didn't grab her halo. She jumped slightly when Slagpit appeared out of nowhere but then giggled slightyl he WOULD be the one to appear out of nowhere.
When Slagpit asked her about lip singing she thought about it for a minute, she started mouthing Slagpits name but every time a loud beep came out. Frowning she adjusted the sound levels then tried it again, her lips clearly moved in a way which appeared to say the humans name. Smiling she gave him the thumbs up.
Just as she did both of their costumes changed her smile was replaced with a look of confusion, was this supposed to be part of the party? Cause she wasn't going to be able to handle another floating ball incident.
10-26-2010, 08:21 AM
Having a look round Borealis observed "lets see: smoking equipment, fighting over whos older, random costume change and kareoke. If this is what i get my first time with you lot, i cant wait to say what calamities will happen. To make it worse i think my friends are coming to meet me."
10-26-2010, 09:20 PM
*Slagpit's irritated yell for his mercernary cohort quickly was replaced by his trademark broad grin as Beepbop signaled him an affirmative.*
Oh, excellent... If you'll follow me this way, please...
*the human agent of chaos incarnate proceeded to the ballroom, where he shot a dirty look at Sparksmasher who was fussing over the holoprojector trying to get it fixed*
Ok, Flinx is off the hook for this one... but-
You hollered? Huh... ya know, that costume suits you better, I think. We should have things straightened up shortly, boss.
Very funny, weasel boy, and you'd better. *pulls a cassette tape out of his pocket* Pop that into the sound system. I need to go have a word with a flamingo.
*Flinx looked down at the cassette, then out to where Beepbop was*
Oh... I see... good one. I'm on it.
*the weasel/creepy little girl (I hate this costume!) scurried off to set up the song, while Slagpit proceeded out to the garden*
Lifewing, I think I've got just the thing to get you out of being stuck as Cleopatra the whole time.
And yet I still get stuck as a hairdresser's nightmare.
Depends. What do you need?
A backup dancer.
*the SLF Autobots exchange a look*
Not for me... for Beepbop.
Just what are you planning here?
*the human pulled the couple into a huddle and explained his plan*
Well, that's different... and it's actually showing some consideration for someone other than yourself... be honest, this was LF's idea, wasn't it?
*whacked Wolfbane in what should be the back of his head with a leaf/wing* I'd be glad to.
Great! *snapped his fingers, and the hologram of the plant fell from around Lifewing, replaced by a matching angel costume to Beepbop's*
Now, remember, you two are lip synching, since she can't actually say words, ya know. Now head on over to the machine. She should be there soon.
10-27-2010, 02:10 AM
Beepbop looked up at LF before following Slagpit giving him a friendly smile. She watched Slagpit hand off the audio tape and head out to the garden, following him would've just made it so she would have to come back in. So she just stood around awkwardly waiting for the reappearance of Slagpit. She was slightly nervous as to what Slagpit exactly wanted she, had to admit, wasn't exactly the most courageous bot when it came to going on stage.
10-28-2010, 10:13 PM
*Lifewing and Slagpit came back inside while Wolfbane continued to sulk outside over his costume. The flamingo-femme walked over to where the beep-speeking femme was waiting nervously and escorted her over to the stage.*
Don't worry. Noone's gonna judge you or anything... this is just for fun. It's a great way to relax, really. Just try to enjoy yourself. I'll be there to help.
10-31-2010, 01:04 PM
Outside a group of 3 planes landed outside and transformed. Borealis wearily walked out to meet them. He sighed and greeted them. "Hey guys if you have to be here then heres the plan. Takeoff do not speak at all.". "WhY nOt" the small plane spoke back. "Because basiclly nothing that you say makes sense" The new medium jet plane said to him. "yea same apllies to you too Skywind. Be quiet." "Why me as well."the jet shouted to his boss. "For you its because people will not want to hear all about you" Borealis shot back. "Takeoff and Delta like to listen to me so everyone else but you probably do" Skywind argued. "Takeoff likes everything and Delta cant speak to tell you to shut up.""Even worse for me to put up with you would be hoping you do not get beaten up for talking to a femme becuase your even worse with one about" Borealis sighed back. "Delta you have to stay out here because your to big to fit in." Borealis went back in with the two jets that could follow while the bigbot shut down while he waited. ( For help Borealis:normal typeing. Skywind: italics and takeoff: RaNdoM type.)
11-03-2010, 06:57 AM
Stealthshadow backed into a wall and the sudden jolt of impact brought his attention to the fact that no one seemed panicked. He took a swig of his drink and looked around. He had to maintain his cool and aloof demeanor and walking into walls with fear plastered over his faceplates wasn't very cool.
He leaned against the wall and took another drink from his cup. Nightfire still looked ticked off and Beepbop was being led onto the platform by one of Slagpit's crew. He glanced around to see where the other two mechs had gone and noticed one was missing. Strange, but not too odd considering it was an SLF party.
Now what to do? He pondered while scanning the room again.
11-05-2010, 02:57 AM
Nightshade was bored. He hadn't done much of anything since he got here, other than warn Nightfire about Stealthshadow. He let out sigh. "Maybe I should go back to Shockcharge." he thought. Just as he was about to go find the gigantic city-sized robot, he noticed from the corner of his optic, that he saw smoke coming from under the table. "What is that? he wondered outloud." He was unsure if he should try to fix whatever was under the table or let it go. He decided to go with the first option. Nightshade wondered over to the front doors and sat down, with a bored look on his face.
11-11-2010, 12:39 PM
Beepbop nodded and silently resented Lifewings costume, she had spent hours on these wings and Lifewing got a pair just by using a hologram! So not fair. She had to admit though the larger pink femme looked nice with them. When they actually got up to the stage fear held her. She didnt like standing up there infront of people but... it was too late the music had started. Lifewing started dancing and Beepbop at first clumsily followed her movements. Then she mouthed the lyrics of the song along with the singer.
When the night falls down
I wait for you
And you come around
And the world's alive
With the sound of kids
On the street outside
When you walk into the room
You pull me close and we start to move
And we're spinning with the stars above
And you lift me up in a wave of love...
Ooh, baby, do you know what that's worth ?
Ooh heaven is a place on earth
They say in heaven love comes first
We'll make heaven a place on earth
Ooh heaven is a place on earth
When I feel alone
I reach for you
And you bring me home
When I'm lost at sea
I hear your voice
And it carries me
In this world we're just beginning
To understand the miracle of living
Baby I was afraid before
But I'm not afraid anymore
Ooh, baby, do you know what that's worth ?
Ooh heaven is a place on earth
They say in heaven love comes first
We'll make heaven a place on earth
Ooh heaven is a place on earth
11-11-2010, 02:41 PM
*as the song came to a close, Slagpit and the rest of the gang (who still had use of both hands) applauded the nervous femme. Lifewing even turned and gave her a gentle hug of encouragement, careful not to damage the costume*
See? You did wonderfully. You just need to learn to relax a little more.
*the hologramed human soon snapped his fingers again to give Lifewing and Wolfbane better attire in which to enjoy the party, which was met by a series of sparks and coughs from the holomatter projector*
Ok, that's not good...
*suddenly, the mansion and the crew's costumes had vanished, only to be replaced by what appeared to be a deserted tropical island, with the crew altered thusly;
Slagpit: Red collared shirt, jeans, white bucket hat
LF: light blue collared shirt, captain's hat, white pants.
Flinx: White button down shirt, navy slacks, pens in shirt pocket
Lifewing: Long slinky gold sequined dress.
Wingwrath: red and white polkadot shirt tied at the waist, cut off jeans.
Vidwave: Apparently still just hands, but now popping out of coconuts.
Sparksmasher: Hawaiian shirt, expensive looking slacks and shoes, lei, sunglasses.
Wolfbane and Darkbane: palm trees*
I knew I shouldn't have hooked that thing up to TV Land.
Does this mean I get to call you "little buddy" now?
...can I borrow your hat?
*thinks* nnnnnno. You're just going to break character and hit me with it.
No, of course not... BECAUSE I HAVE MY OWN TO DO THAT WITH! *takes off his hat and swats at LF with it*
11-11-2010, 06:00 PM
Nightshade who was bored a few seconds ago, was now bewildered by the immediate costume change and the scenery that appeared before him. Sure it had happened before, but the scenery changing was something completely new. Nightshade sighed and stood up. "Um Slagpit, may I offer to try and fix the holomatter projector?" he asked. "It's alright if you don't want me to, I'd just thought if I try to fix it, it will stop changing you guys costumes.." Nightshade said trailing off.
11-12-2010, 10:38 PM
Beepbpo smiled a bit looking up a Lifewing, if Slagpit was going to want her to do this again she was going to have to practice in front of some people cause she was really nervous up there and was heppy it was over. What was really surprising though was when suddenly,everything changed. She got down from the stage and looked around rather confused. A desert? sand?
11-17-2010, 12:26 AM
Stealthshadow applauded for Beepbop. He didn't quite comprehend how she was able to sing, but assumed it had something to do with the 'karaoke' that the others were talking about earlier. And then the area around him flickered and changed and the SLF crew were in different costumes and now fighting again (at least that was normal). Nightshade and Beepbop didn't seem too bothered by the change, so he started walking toward the others to see if he could offer some help. And with his first step he noticed the fine gritty substance that gave way under his pede. Sand. He froze for a moment debating whether he should turn the antigrav's on and float the rest of the way, or suck it up and let the fine material seep into and possibly clog up his thrusters. In the end he decided to let the sand have its nefarious way with him; he was going to need a long bath after the party anyway to wash off all the paint.
He walked over to the others and glanced at the SLF's new costumes. "I forgot to pack my grass skirt back at the base, but I might have a tiki mask in a pocket if we're changing party themes."
