End Game Part Five: The Traitor

While his brethren are out, seeking to destroy the dual incursions of Demons and Unicron...

Liege has waited, patiently.

His goals have always differed from those of the other thirteen, and now that they are distracted he can put forth a bid for his true desire: Control of the Lambda.

He appears on the network standing on a snow-capped balcony, shadowed by the near-perpetual darkness of his frigid towers.

"Listen, and listen well. To fight is hopeless. We have no guarantee of Primus's return, and we have even less guarantee that we can hold our own against this dual-sided assault. There is another way."

From the top of his tower, Liege raises his arm...and the snow-clouds above him disperse, whipping small flakes across the scene as the Lambda looms--green and ominous in a star-filled sky.

"I have broached a contract with the chaos-bringer. If we allow him into this universe, access to all other universes will be granted to us. Our horizons will be limitless. Put down your arms and rally to me...if you want to explore, or learn, or simply want to return home."

Behind him, a separate portal opens--brilliant and green just like the Lambda.

"Together, we can stop Prima and Vector, and gain something more worthwhile than this useless chunk of rock we have tried to call home. I will be waiting."

[[Those who wish to rally with Liege may come to his temple. Although fighting is not required for this path, he and Unicron will look favorably upon any who proceed through the small tear behind him to help repel Prima and Vector and their forces from the Maw. Those who do will find the gravity of the Lambda working for them--while you won't be able to fly, you will be able to move through the space around the Lambda with ease, re-orienting yourself as you see fit.]]

So... we.


Uh.


We wouldn't get killed, right?
dinnerdate: (ooohhh that's what you meant)

[personal profile] dinnerdate 2014-08-02 11:34 pm (UTC)(link)
...


[Caught with a hand in the cookie jar. What does he do now?]


Not dying sounds really good right now, doesn't it?
neverputincharge: (Before I was a wrecker...)

[personal profile] neverputincharge 2014-08-03 02:14 am (UTC)(link)
Yeah. But this is Unicron, the destroyer of worlds.
dinnerdate: (ooohhh that's what you meant)

[personal profile] dinnerdate 2014-08-03 02:24 am (UTC)(link)
Who we can't beat... It's a better chance at living through this, isn't it?
neverputincharge: (Before I was a wrecker...)

[personal profile] neverputincharge 2014-08-03 03:35 am (UTC)(link)
How do you know he can't be beat? I've fought against him twice. I can guarantee he was beat both times.

How do ya know Unicron won't just turn around and kill you after all this is over?
dinnerdate: (one of those days. again)

[personal profile] dinnerdate 2014-08-03 03:50 am (UTC)(link)
Have you ever fought him like this before?

I don't, but there's a better chance. Maybe. Or I'll just die either way.

[personal profile] neverputincharge 2014-08-03 04:27 am (UTC)(link)
Close, some of those stone versions of him got pretty fraggin' big. That was while he was threatening to destroy a world. Namely Earth, the plant that was formed around his body.

So, you're just givin' up? What abot helpin' to find a way to stop him. You would't be fightin' alone you know.
dinnerdate: (ooohhh that's what you meant)

[personal profile] dinnerdate 2014-08-03 05:04 am (UTC)(link)
How did you beat him?

There's nothing else I can do... You want me to fight?
neverputincharge: (Respectfully talking)

[personal profile] neverputincharge 2014-08-03 05:18 am (UTC)(link)
Optimus used the Matrix of Leadership on his spark, to put him back in stasis. Which worked and saved the planet.

Can you fight?
dinnerdate: (ooohhh that's what you meant)

[personal profile] dinnerdate 2014-08-03 05:32 am (UTC)(link)
...Well that's not going to work.

[Bulkhead those swords strapped to his back aren't just decoration.]

Yes.










Are you going to shoot me?
neverputincharge: (Annoying scrap brain)

[personal profile] neverputincharge 2014-08-03 06:21 am (UTC)(link)
.....yeah, I know that. No Optimus here. Don't think there's even a matrix here.

[He's starting to wonder if they are just decoration, considering he's never really seen him actually use them.]

Then you should be out with the rest of us fightin'. Unless you have swords for decoration.


.....what?
dinnerdate: (ooohhh that's what you meant)

[personal profile] dinnerdate 2014-08-03 09:22 am (UTC)(link)
How are we not doomed then?

[Alright, that's a good point. He's maybe pulled out his swords to use twice since he'd been in this place.]

No, I can use them... But isn't it just easier to not fight? I don't really like Unicron, I mean the diet change was enough for me. But if siding with him means not dying, it sounds pretty nice.





...My teammates always shoot me when they want me to fight.
neverputincharge: (What was that?)

[personal profile] neverputincharge 2014-08-04 05:02 am (UTC)(link)
We got the Forged on our side....well, all but Liege anyway. Accordin' to legend on my world, they cast him out once.

No. To not fight is to just give up. To surrender. No matter what he's thrown at us, we ain't backed down before. We shouldn't start doing it now.

......is that really what it takes to get you to fight? No I ain't gonna shootcha. But I refuse to watch you join Unicron's side.
dinnerdate: (that went poorly)

[personal profile] dinnerdate 2014-08-04 06:13 am (UTC)(link)
If they could beat him they'd have done it already.

...But. Not dying.

[Just listen to how good that sounds.]

I- Well, I don't. Fighting isn't something I do that much. When they get fed up, that's what they do... Why? I'm not important.
neverputincharge: (Respectfully talking)

[personal profile] neverputincharge 2014-08-07 04:53 am (UTC)(link)
They can still beat him with our help. It's why we're here, isn't it? We've helped before, we shouldn't quit now when they need us the most.

We won't die either if we win. Dunno about you, but I got a good track record of survivin' scrap.

[And clearly so does Deads, or he wouldnĂ·'t be here.]

Why not? Bet you're good at fighting, when you do do it. For one, you look like Jackie and carry swords. And two, somebody not good at fight, probably wouldn't still be alive.

And why? Cause....hard as it is to believe...I care. I've known ya for most of the time I've been here.

And if you weren't important you wouldn't be here.
dinnerdate: (ooohhh that's what you meant)

[personal profile] dinnerdate 2014-08-18 03:57 am (UTC)(link)
There's no guaranteeing that.

...Yeah. You might, but some of us aren't that lucky.

[He doesn't think he's good at surviving scrap. Maybe life keeping him around long enough to torment him, but not actually surviving.]

I can keep up with him.

[He kind of had to be able to fight on some similar level to Jackie.]

Doesn't mean I'm good though.

[He's not going to comment on being important or not. He knows he's not, but he also knows that arguing generally results in a back and forth.]
neverputincharge: (Serious talk)

[personal profile] neverputincharge 2014-08-18 05:29 am (UTC)(link)
Maybe not, but we got a fraggin' better chance of winning if we work together, than if we don't.

No, all of will survive this. It's less likelyif we team up with chaos bringer.

[He can't see being with Unicron as a good thing, they guy could just be saying what they want to hear, to get cooperation.]

If you impressed Jackie, then you're better than you think you are. I think you just need the right reasons to fight.

Currently you're headed for the wrong reasons.
dinnerdate: (wait what was that)

[personal profile] dinnerdate 2014-08-18 10:37 pm (UTC)(link)
Maybe... But what if he isn't lying about this?

[What if it is guaranteed survival.]

And what is the right reason to fight?
neverputincharge: (Let me explain slowly)

[personal profile] neverputincharge 2014-08-21 06:19 am (UTC)(link)
It won't matter if we don't let him win.

Survival. Of you, me. The future of this planet and our race here.
dinnerdate: (one of those days. again)

[personal profile] dinnerdate 2014-09-03 03:48 am (UTC)(link)
[He just sighs.]

This is going to end horribly.
neverputincharge: (Guards never look up)

[personal profile] neverputincharge 2014-09-03 05:01 am (UTC)(link)
[Don't tempt him to find you and smack you.]

I could...give you another reason to fight.
dinnerdate: (one of those days. again)

[personal profile] dinnerdate 2014-09-22 02:39 am (UTC)(link)
What other reasons are there?

So we have to... fight the others to have better odds at surviving?
