END GAME Part One: ARRIVAL

Your victory against the Zone, though hard-won, is brief. The resulting peace is broken by several things happening at once.

As though driven by spite at the Haven's refusal to bow down, the resurgence of the Lambda is sudden, vicious, and violent. The distant figures of the First Forged, tiny in comparison, make an appearance as they flit across the wounded sky, as they did before the Zone's eruption. But whatever they might be attempting, it is already too late.

The sky crackles with lightning and thunder, cast in the same sickly green glow of the Lambda. The crack in reality widens, surging, and the First Forged have to flee as lightning arcs wildly their way. The flash is so bright, it is impossible to see if any have been hit. The sky tears, audibly cracking across half the horizon. To anyone who happens to be glancing at the ground for some reason, rather than the giant rift in the sky: the shadows at the boundaries of the Haven grow darker despite the electric light in the sky, curls of inky darkness stretching out like living things across the ground. The void beyond the yawning, electric edges of the Lambda is becoming more visible: a dark nebula, cast further in shadow by a vast form.

And something

Is coming through

It seems small at first. A conical spear-tip piecing the between the void a million light-years away. But the tip continues to grow, wider; impossibly wide and tall, reaching down from the sky.

It is joined by a second, just as vast. Curved oppositely from each other, they are poised to grasp the world between them.

And between them both, still trapped behind the dubious safety of the lambda, is a vast maw, gaping and poised over the world.

The Chaos Bringer has come.

~

But not all is darkness and terror.


The light of Prima's tower flares in opposition; spires emerge as the entire thing shifts, sharp antennae transforming out of the sides. Lightning - normal lightning - cracks between them, building charge. The light at the top pulses, flaring up toward the stars.

The planet itself quakes in response, that charge running down from the tower into the crust below.

And one of those distant stars is getting very, very bright.

~~~

And at long last, the First Forged - battle-scarred and wary, and some smoking but alive - gather to contact the entire Haven over the Network. Staring morosely at the tear in the sky, Vector Prime is already speaking when the visual connects.

"-a worthy diversion. I am surprised it lasted as long as it did-"

Prima cuts him off with a gesture, stepping forward from the group to address the Haven directly.

"The time for diversions is past. Our one true foe has made his final bid for this world. He is the very reason for your arrival here - and for the glyphs that protect you from his influence.

Unicron the Devourer has come.
"

The words are solemn, but Megatronus quickly shoulders his brother aside, temper flaring and engines running hot with battle fervor.

"It is time to make a final stand. You will fight with us, or you can start praying to your gods for your final absolution. Because if we do not survive now, neither will you."

Solus holds up her hands as she steps to the forefront, cutting off an argument between the two before it can begin.

"We still need time, brothers. Fight him - delay his full emergence - we need time to activate the Core!"

With a baleful glance cast toward his brother, Prima nods, raising his blade to the sky.

"Very well - Marked! Rally your arms! Gather to your patrons! The time for battle is upon you all!"

~~~

[[The time for the final battle is at hand! Stand with your patron First Forged in their chosen fight and aid them with your gifts in a upcoming battle post - or stand alone, and face the coming darkness without aid!

Or just drink yourself into a stupor - the world is about to end, after all.]]

And no Optimus this time. [Or Matrix, or magical relic built by Trion that can hold his anti-spark.]

Well, we kinda knew this was comin' sooner or later.
deadlydoctor: (The fuck is that?)

[Video]

[personal profile] deadlydoctor 2014-07-31 11:30 pm (UTC)(link)
We still have one Predacon? And certain gifts that might be useful.[The ones he got weren't specially for combat but if you need quick calculations or know where to find certain material he's your bot.]

Yes but the question is why it keeps happening to us? I believe the universe might be trying to tell us something.
neverputincharge: (Respectfully talking)

[Video]

[personal profile] neverputincharge 2014-08-01 12:18 am (UTC)(link)
Yeah, guess that is one good thing. The fast healin' and stuff'll be handy. Ain't sure about findin' materials unless Solus wants me to build something. [Man, he's had that ability alot longer than you have! You should be coming to him for it.]

Maybe, but at least this time it ain't just us? Plus we got the Forged on our side.
deadlydoctor: (Hm)

[Video]

[personal profile] deadlydoctor 2014-08-01 11:35 pm (UTC)(link)
I admit that one doesn't sound too useful. [Ey is not like Knock Out know that about you, green.]

A small consolation. Perhaps things will end well again.

[personal profile] neverputincharge 2014-08-02 06:08 am (UTC)(link)
Might wind up bein' useful. Solus says she wants me at the core along with others.

We can hope so. You gonna man the medbay as usual?
deadlydoctor: (Serious medic is serious)

[Video]

[personal profile] deadlydoctor 2014-08-02 01:54 pm (UTC)(link)
we will see then.

No. What's the point? [If they don't win he's sure there will be no survivors or people to heal.] I might tag along.
neverputincharge: (Default)

[Video]

[personal profile] neverputincharge 2014-08-02 07:10 pm (UTC)(link)
If we win there could be injuries, though.

Be good to have you.

.......any idea what Breakdown plans to do?
deadlydoctor: (Hm)

[Video]

[personal profile] deadlydoctor 2014-08-02 10:25 pm (UTC)(link)
I'll take care of those if we win.

No. [Knock Out frown, looking uncomfortable.] We haven't really talked much. Or seen each other in person, for what matters.
neverputincharge: (...how to explain this one...)

[Video]

[personal profile] neverputincharge 2014-08-03 04:46 am (UTC)(link)
Alright. [It still feels a little strange consulting Knock Out, but ten Ratchet seemed to be gone again. But there's no time to think about it now.]

Oh, huh..he....fought with me outside the plant. Uh....sorry I asked, I just kinda figured...you know.
deadlydoctor: (Serious time)

[Video]

[personal profile] deadlydoctor 2014-08-03 12:16 pm (UTC)(link)
Don't worry if you need patching up I'm more than used to it by now. [Knock Out tried to look around for the Doc as well but he can't find him either.]


I didn't. I'm not surprised to hear that, though. [Fighting is kinda their thing.] But you fought together instead of each other?
neverputincharge: (Respectfully talking)

[Video]

[personal profile] neverputincharge 2014-08-03 11:23 pm (UTC)(link)
Thanks, used to it too. [Seriously, how did you wind up his most consistant teammate, specially when you didn't start out as one.]

Against those zombie monsters? Yeah, we've done it before back on our Earth. [You....knew about that, right?]
deadlydoctor: (The fuck is this?)

[Video]

[personal profile] deadlydoctor 2014-08-04 12:12 am (UTC)(link)
That's a bad habit, I hope you realize it. [IDK man, he ask himself that too. Guess that life is just that weird.]

...what. [The heck are you talking about.] When was that?
neverputincharge: (...how to explain this one...)

[Video]

[personal profile] neverputincharge 2014-08-04 02:05 am (UTC)(link)
Yeah, we really need to find another doc.

Uh....not against zombies, but....against MECH, after they'd captured him.
deadlydoctor: (Glare - GTFO)

[Video]

[personal profile] deadlydoctor 2014-08-06 07:14 pm (UTC)(link)
Ey, I am not good enough for you?

That's not what I was told. Didn't Starscream do it?
neverputincharge: (I don't get it)

[Video]

[personal profile] neverputincharge 2014-08-06 10:20 pm (UTC)(link)
I never said that. Just ain't used to going to you.

Uh....no? I located their base, busted in and broke him out. Then we took on MECH when they tried to stop our escape. Screamer didn't show up till MECH had retreated.
deadlydoctor: (What in the hell)

[Video]

[personal profile] deadlydoctor 2014-08-07 09:43 pm (UTC)(link)
After all those months....[He's hurt Bulk, hurt and disappointed. not really but slightly.]

[Also WHAT THE HELL. Knock Out's giving him the most confused face ever.] Why did you decide to save a con, exactly?
neverputincharge: (Looking over shoulder)

[Video]

[personal profile] neverputincharge 2014-08-08 12:27 am (UTC)(link)
Well, for many of those months, you were still the enemy. But hey, you are a good doc.

I wanted a rematch. [He shrugs. Well, mostly that and....]

....and even he didn't deserve to be prisoner to those cannibals. [He still doesn't like what they did to his corpse either. Those are some sick humans.]
deadlydoctor: (Interested ~)

[Video]

[personal profile] deadlydoctor 2014-08-10 12:19 am (UTC)(link)
Funny how things change with time. Sometimes I wonder what Sweet Rims would think about all this.

No. no one...deserved that...[Knock Out's still confused by the news, forgive him if he's a bit slow.]
neverputincharge: (Explaining stuff)

[Video]

[personal profile] neverputincharge 2014-08-10 05:01 am (UTC)(link)
Heh, definitely is. [He goes quiet for a moment at the mention of Optimus.] Dunno. I....kinda like to think he'd be okay with it. The way we've....adapted and survived in this place. What we've done.

Sometimes I did ask why I did, since it certainly didn't change anything. [A part of had hoped that something had changed. The way Breakdown had actually hesitated to attack him, briefly questioning Starscream before he gave in. But it was for naught.]

But hey, if you don't believe me, I can send ya the video file I have. [Albeit it'd be from his POV.]
deadlydoctor: (Uhm - think think)

[Video] adhgakds I just saw the fake reply and laughed a lot

[personal profile] deadlydoctor 2014-08-10 11:21 pm (UTC)(link)
I think he would have liked to see Decepticons and Autobots getting along too.

I'll have to ask Breakdown about it. [He now wonders what else his former partner didn't tell him.] I guess your spark decided for you, it's how it works with your lot.


No, I trust your word. [Did he just say that out loud? Oh.]
neverputincharge: (I have faith in him)

[Video] :-D

[personal profile] neverputincharge 2014-08-11 04:16 am (UTC)(link)
Me too. ....wish he got to see it, more than anybody. [Optimus was always the one trying to get peace between them during the war. And here they'd some how managed it for the most part, even if there were still some causing issues.]

If he didn't already, what makes ya think he'll admit it now?

Alright.
deadlydoctor: (Regrets)

[Video] 83 ♥♥♥

[personal profile] deadlydoctor 2014-08-11 11:32 pm (UTC)(link)
We don't know for sure what happened to him in our own universe, perhaps he's enjoying himself. [And not facing the end of the world again.]

It's the end of the world. Keepings secrets now kind of lacks meaning.

hm.

[video] Barging in because WHY WOULDN'T HE

[personal profile] patchjob 2014-08-03 08:12 am (UTC)(link)
Prob'ly punch a few things. Worked with the 'bots.

[Besides, somebody has to show Bulkhead up, and it probably won't be Knockout.]
deadlydoctor: (The fuck is that?)

[video] YET. Hello there, buddy

[personal profile] deadlydoctor 2014-08-03 12:18 pm (UTC)(link)
So you are coming. Almost like the old times then.

[Ey! Is not like Breakdown knows how to do Knock Out's job either, they have different areas of expertise.]
neverputincharge: (Cool explosion)

[video] Yay!

[personal profile] neverputincharge 2014-08-03 11:25 pm (UTC)(link)
You gonna follow your Forged, or stick with Kmock Out?

[AKA: Is he going to have to possibly deal with you in the core too, if that's where Knock Out is sent?]
