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.]]

[Always with the temples. Always. Not like he had any skyscrapers to swing from here! And he was still more than a little weary from his last attempt to handle things on foot.]

Sooo...yeeeah...preeetty sure I'm gonna need a lift back to Vector's place, if that's the plan.

Unless, y'know, you just want me to hang out here and throw rocks at ol' sunshine and rainbows when he shows up.

[Which he's totally willing to do, he just doubts the effectiveness of it. Then again, it was Solus' temple he was at, she probably had way cooler stuff than rocks to throw.]

[It's dejavu all over again. For the third time. How many more times would it be? Who knew.

But the Forged were right. They were brought here to help with this. They've done too mush to fragging back down now. There's no questioning it. If they don't fight, they die and this Cybertron would die before it truly started

There's the sound of transformation as he brings one of canons online, and balls his other hand into a fist, looking determined.]


Just tell me where ya want me.

I didn't expect things to get so bad so quickly. [And yet...He's used to reacting too, so he's ready.] How can we help?

Do you think we are cursed? Because I'm starting to think this is the universe's preferred joke to pull on us.

[personal profile] deadlydoctor 2014-07-31 08:51 pm (UTC)(link)
I'm filled with a deep sense of Déjà vu. [And he doesn't like it. Seriously? This is happening AGAIN?]
young_upstart: (deceptijerks again?)

[personal profile] young_upstart 2014-07-31 09:52 pm (UTC)(link)
....oh no...

[On the one side, this gives him a chance to get back at this thing for messing up things in his world, on the other...well scrap, it's fraggin' Unicron.

Doesn't seem like backing out of things is an option, but since when has he ever done so?

Ready as I'll ever be. Let's do this.

Dear Soa....

[She was brought to this world after facing a god of destruction and so this feeling of doom is all too familiar to her. But that doesn't mean she is going to stand down.]

What do you need us to do?

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.

O scrap!!!

That Unicorn guy looks totes scarier in person!

[Yep, Ravage still think Unicron's name is Unicorn.]
deadlydoctor: (The fuck is that?)

[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.

By the Five!!

[It's one thing to speculate about Unicron but another to see him--it--tear violently through the sky. It's end of days unlike any he's seen before.]

Vector Prime, I hope you will still have me by your side!

[He realizes he left the Havens, same as the First Forged did. One might even say they've been estranged. But Wing never stopped being thankful for his other gifts granted by his First Forged.]

There's no way we can win... We're all doomed.

I think you will find it easier than you expect to assist us - even if the battle itself will be no simple ordeal, to say the least.

[It takes a moment, but eventually a portal pops into existence, right in front of Peter's path - the entrance to Vector's temple can be seen in the other side.]

I suggest you use the additional time to prepare. We will be rendezvousing below the Lambda soon enough.
vectorianpolarity: (. neutral)

[Video]

[personal profile] vectorianpolarity 2014-08-01 08:57 am (UTC)(link)
Nor did anyone else. Unicron's move is...early.

[Despite his confusion, Vector is pleased by his Initiate's quick response, inclining his head at the small 'bot.]

You and the rest of my Marked will be assisting in delaying Unicron himself - we will rendezvous shortly under the Lambda. Prepare while you can, and await the call.

Something on the scale of the Chaos Bringer is not something one can easily prepare for.

[But Vector Prime still seems pleased with Hot Rod's willingness to assist.]

You and the rest of Prima's marked with be joining with my own, and we will rendezvous shortly under the Lambda to take the fight to Unicron.

You will be joining with Prima's marked and rendezvousing below the Lambda.

[Given that Rose is a recent convert to his own glyph, Vector Prime is is pleased to see her quick and willing response.]

Prepare while you can. We will be taking the fight to Unicron himself.

[personal profile] vectorianpolarity 2014-08-01 09:05 am (UTC)(link)
Something of an understatement, but sufficient.

[Vector Prime's lip actually twitches at that one, though given the situation, it is hard to tell if it is in dark amusement or exasperation.]

If you are answering the call to fight as well, you and others with my Mark will be rendezvousing under the Lambda to aid in the attack upon Unicron himself.

[He's never spoken to this Firstforged, even in passing, but all the same, he nods. Taking the fight up there? You bet he's up for it.]

Ventus and I are also Prima's Initiates, so if there's anything in specific that you might need us for... Well, either way, we'll do what we need to do.
vectorianpolarity: (Default)

[personal profile] vectorianpolarity 2014-08-01 09:10 am (UTC)(link)
Of course, Wing.

[Though the oath earns him an odd side-glance, Vector still grants the mech a nod, proud to see the quick response in one of his own.]

I would be pleased to have your aid in the coming fight.

Bulkhead.

[Solus Prime nods at her Initiate, deeply pleased to see his quick response.]

As useful as you would be on the field in the heart of the battle, I will need you elsewhere. You and others of your ilk will be needed to assist me in the Core itself.
raceme: (Yes sir!)

[Video]

[personal profile] raceme 2014-08-01 09:13 am (UTC)(link)
It's good to see you, sir, aside from the unfortunate circunstances.

[Blurr replies with an inclination of his own.]

I'll be ready. Is this why you all were gone? You were fighting his influence?
solianpolarity: (Default)

[Video]

[personal profile] solianpolarity 2014-08-01 09:15 am (UTC)(link)
Yes, it would be familiar for you, hm?

[Solus almost cracks a wry grin. Almost.]

Given the current situation, I can only hope you will get to experience that triumph one more time.

[Nexus can't help but laugh at that, despite the dire situation.]

Oh yeah, 'Unicorn' is totally scary - scarier than a lot of people thought! Think you can help us out with him a bit, Ravage?
