((ooc: Backdated to sometime between Prime's transmission at the time of the explosion, and the on-site log.))

[For a long moment, there's only soft static.  When Bee finally finds his voice, there's numb shock . . . and unspeakable grief.]

O-optimus, I . . . I-I'm at the site of the- . . . o-of the . . .

. . . you need . . . to see this for yourself.

Primus forgive us.

[On Prime's orders, Bumblebee is fulling his primary function as espionage scout, in a sense extending the limited range of the Convoy's scanners.  He's now radioing in with his findings.  Uuuuuuunfortunately, in his deep distress, he's . . . not remembering to speak in Reialan ((or whatever the equivalent of "English" is)) - unless you speak Cybertronian, all you hear is incoherent beeps, static, electronic feedback, and something almost like musical tones.]

Optimus!  Optimus Prime, come in!

Commander, we've got a serious problem here!  I'm at the coordinates Jade gave us, and I've located her friend.  Human male bound down on a makeshift, decorated dais of some kind.  Glowing glyphs and all kinds of things that really do not give me a good feeling, if you know what I mean.  Three satyrs on guard duty around the site, five more dancing and chanting around the table.

Optimus, the energy readings I'm getting here are . . . "alarming" would be an understatement.  If I'm not mistaken, by my calculations, the peak output won't be reached for at least another joor or two, but . . . it's climbing rapidly, and I think it's coming directly from Jade's friend!  I don't know what the purpose is, but . . . if it were to, say, explode?  It could take out an area about equivalent to the space between Kaon and Iacon back home!

((ooc: Is this what you were talking about, Krystal?  Let me know if there's anything that needs tweaking and I'll change it.  8B))

Does anyone know if there are any particular significances to those locations that Jade's friends were taken to?

Optimus Prime, let me know if you want me to take any of those locations.  Scout them out at least.

Sara's just been telling me that the hot springs are cooling, at least where she is.  Is anyone else experiencing this?

Optimus Prime, do you want me to check it out?  Tonight maybe?

((ooc: Forward-dated slightly if need be . . . I'm assuming after a bit, everyone will have left the docks to look for clues, look for shelter, whatever...))

[He's calm . . . but the worry is audible in his tone.]

Hey, guys, it's Bumblebee.  I just got to Kropmork.  Optimus Prime gave me the coordinates for the ship at the dock but . . . did I miss you guys?  Or you just haven't arrived yet?

[Locked to Pip]

Pip, Prime's not answering his comm.  What's going on?  Do you know?

Are these kinds of things really problems, the most recent letters to that Lorena woman?   It's . . . kind of sad to me.  I know that I don't know her, really, or anything like that, but . . . she seems like such a rigid and intolerant person.  Why would people seek advice from such a person?  And, really, don't they have family or friends they can go to, people who know them and their situation better?

I kind of had to laugh, though, at part of the last letter.  Lorena went on about not asking about her age, so I have to wonder if . . . huh, they didn't sign their letter.  The ones claiming to be outlaws.  Their comment about, "And since you don't have very much time left" . . . sounds like kind of a backhanded compliment, you know?  I shouldn't have laughed, I know, but . . . kinda seems to me like maybe she had it coming?  Anyone else think so?

Okay, not very charitable for an Autobot, but . . .

[Yeah, he can't get that amused tone out of his voice, even as he knows he shouldn't be.]

So . . . really?  There's a cloud that floats around the continent and there are flowers that might or might not grow in the middle of it or just mysteriously form and drop out of it, there's a festival in its honor, and no one's ever actually studied the thing?

Or is it that the technology just . . . doesn't exist here yet to do so.  Boy, Perceptor and Wheeljack would have been all over that!

A-anyway . . . so what do people normally do at this festival?  Anyone have suggestions on the kinds of things to look out for, or have any favorite events or booths?  This'll be my first experience of an event like this so . . . I'm looking forward to it!

Um . . . r-reminder also - and this is for the whole crew! - please don't, please do not discuss me or the captain to anyone who's not a member of the crew.  Or . . . well, I mean, you can, but the nature of what we are is not an open topic for conversation.  It's just . . . yeah, things work better that way.  We can't operate normally if people are all excited or something at the prospect of alien robots, you know?  So . . . yeah, just . . . please don't.

Thanks, everyone!

Mood's doing much better, so that I actually started trying to hit tags again.  Compy, however, has other ideas.  It's locked up or just arbitrarily rebooted SIX TIMES in the past few hours, among other troubles so . . . yeah . . .

Full hiatus in effect until the new computer gets here next week and I get it all set up and such.  I think I'm not even going to bother opening my browser again until then at this point.

I just fucking hope this posts without the damned thing rebooting . . . again.

If anyone needs to get a hold of me for whatever reason, Krystal has my cell phone number.

See y'all on the other side!

Hey, everyone.  It’s Bumblebee.  Sorry I’ve been scarce.  Long-ish story.


How’re the repairs going?  Any trouble areas that need particular attention?  Also . . . ah, Sam, Rock?  As soon as one of you has some time, I . . . need to come see you.  Should have done this half a deca-cycle ago...  Anyway, no great rush, just . . . let me know when’s a good time for you, okay?  Thanks.


Bumblebee out.

[Here is the sound of a very nervous and VERY APOLOGETIC little Autobot.]

Um . . . g-guys.  I . . . slag.

Okay, I know none of you will get this until you get back to the ship - those of you who still have journals to return to - but ah . . . s-slight miscalculation on my part, a-and . . . well, Hex . . . s-she, ah . . .

Never.  Gets energon. Again.  ...for starters.

P-primus, guys, I'm sorry.  I couldn't stop her.  I'll . . . I-I'll find a way to make this right.  I'm really sorry...

[Locked to Pip]

Pip, um . . . w-when Prime gets back, let . . . let me be the one to break the news to him.  I-It'll be better, I think, if he hears it from me directly.  I'm really sorry...
