Just thought this up a couple of days ago. Well here it is. I would appreciate some advice on writing too. Prologue "Hey Spots," Rattrap said enthusiasticallly. Cheetor was slightly angry about Rattrap disturbing his thinking. He hadn't been doing much thinking until a year ago when they came back to Cybertron. "Got some big news for ya furrball." "What kind of news?" Cheetor said. He got slightly interested about whatever Rattrap was about to say. He leaped off the tree branch he was laying on and landed softly on the grass below. " So cats do always land on their feet." " Rattrap, the news." " Right, Right. So we got a call from Earth. "Apparently they found some bots lying in under loads a dirt an gravel. They were offline until a year ago when Cybertron got- " "Reformatted" " Yup. And their headed here right now." " Are their bodies reformatted?" " Nope. They just got back online." "Like Rhinox...." Cheetor said. He wondered why the Matrix did this. Were the bots that were supposedly offlne just in stasis lock? He then thought about Rhinox. Rhinox had his spark extracted one year ago and placed in the shell of a dimwitted Vehicon named Tankorr. When Rhinox's memory was returned, he still acted as their enemy. Tankorr eventually was destroyed, but Rhinox's spark was revived and placed in a new technoorganic body just like all the other Transformers who had their shells destroyed. Rhinox worked harder than anyone else to rebuilt Cybertron. He didn't seem to notice everyone had forgiven him. Except himself. "Yeah." " Seems like the only bots who didn't get revived are the Boss Monkey, Megahead, and all our ancestors." Rattrap said silently. "Is that the ship coming in?" said Cheetor? "Yup." " Let's get a team to welcome them back." An hour later they gathered a welcoming group. Cheetor and Rattrap were the first there to welcome the arrivals. Next to them was Silverbolt. Silverbolt is third in command of the Maximal army afte Rattrap. Hehas the beast mode of a condor. He stood there silently observing the ship. One or two years ago he would have been soaring in the air and waving at the young bots. Not anymore. Like Rhinox he was placed in a Vehicon shell. Unlike Rhinox he had no control over his Vehicon personality. He still feels guilty. Especially since as Jetstorm he attacked his girlfriend, Blackarachnia. Blackarachnia stood beside Silverbolt. Her beast mode was a spider. She was a Predacon during te first half of the Beast Wars even though she had a Maximal protoform. But a plan from Megatron and Silverbolt brought her back to the Maximals. s he was saddened by silverbolt's moodiness but they still were close. She always tries her hardest to get him back to th goofy heroic Maximal he once was. Rhinox was there. Like his name suggests his beast mode is a rhino. Botanica was also there. Botanica is Rattrap's girlfriend. She is slightly famous on Cybertron for being the only Maximal with a plant for an alternate form. Buzzsaw is a rookie Maximal who recently worked his way up to the army. His beast mode is a hornet. He was excited to be around his idols Cheetor and Silverbolt. He is usually the first one their to missions. even if it's recycling duty. T-Wrecks is another newcomer to the maximal army. Usually when one sees his best mode of a huge tyrannosaurus they assume he is a Maximal with a bad attitude. While he does sometimes get angered easily, he isusually a friendly and cocky Maximal. The only one not their was the Maximal with a bat mode, Nightscream. He was susposed to be there but no one noticed at that moment. The one Predacon there was Waspinator. Waspinator was put into a Vehicon shell one year ago too. He was a motorcycle named Thrust. He actually liked being a Vehicon as he thought thats 'chick dig brooding loner bit" and the fact that he never got blown up as often. Unfortunately when he was reformatted he was turned into a tiny Earth size wasp with Thrust's head. the Maximals gave him amnesty from his crimes during the Beast Wars. This is mostly because they felt sorry for him and the fact that waspinator was not that bad of a bot. Waspinator only volunteered to come with them because he had nothng else to do. The ship opened up. Cheetor sais to the pilot " Let them out." " Yes sir, but a few a few of them must be restrained because....well......" "I understand" The first one wh came out was a Maximal. He was a faded blue color with a yellow face. He seemed to have huge fins sticking out of his back like a Manta Ray. When he looked up at his fellow Maximals he did a double take. " Cheetor, Rattrap, Blackarachnia, Rhinox?" "Yeah, and this guy over here is Silverbolt. Welcome back Depth Charge." "Where's Primal......... And what happened to Cybertron?" "Unfortunately, Optimus died to reformat Cybertron." " And Megatron?" " Him too" said Rattrap happily. "What about you? We thought you were scrap." said Cheetor. " I did too. But I guess I'm tougher than I thought. Unfortunately X survived too......" Sure enough the first of the next three who came out of the ship was the grab formerly known as Protoform X. Now known as Rampage. He was just as scarred as depth Charge and seemed to try and fight the energy restraints that held him even though that would tire him out. The next one was a small Predaconwho was yelling all over the place. His name was Quickstrike. He was a fuzor. a combination of two animals. He had a scorpion beast mode, but instead of a stinger he had a Cobra. The next Predacon was bigger and was also trying to break free of his restaints even though his parts were only barely reattached to him. He kept demanding to see the "royalty". This was the insane ant Predacon, Inferno. The last one who came out was so badly damaged you could see his circuitry. he uttered one word as he looked at the new Cybertron. " Interesting." Blackarachnia immediately knew who it was. a voice she never wished to hear again. It made her angry. "Tarantulas," she said. "Ahhh, Blackarachnia. what an interesting new form you have. If I may....examine it." " Get away from her you twisted piece of scrap." Silverbolt warned as he drew a blade. " I meant no harm.....Silverbolt? It seems like you've gotten an upgrade too. along with an attitude. And... Waspinator?" " Yes Waspinator is here too," Waspinator sighed. " Listen" said Cheetor. " This is the new Cybertron. Everyone here has been reformatted with technoorganic bodies. To live here now I suggest you do the same." " But what about the Royalty?" Inferno cried. " Don't ya get it ya big idjit" Quickstrike snapped. " Megatron is either in a cell or blown ta pieces." "Noooooooooo. I must grieve for my queen!" " Yeah, You do that partner." " I wanna get reformatted, I guess. Just as long as I don't end up like Waspinator." Heh heh." " Not funny!" Waspinator cried out. "I guess I have no choice...for the moment. My spark ain't feelin so.....indestrutable right now." said Rampage. "I'll do it," said Depth Charge. " I refuse," said Tarantulas. " My plans do not include getting reformatted.... At least not like this. Thanks for the little "reunion". Tarantulas then unexpectedly jumped off the ledge he waas standing on. at the rate he was going down a flier would never catch him. "Do you think he's-" said Buzzsaw " Not a chance" Blacharachnia said bitterly. " Not sure if anybody noticed but..Where's Nightscream?" Rattrap said "Nightscream? Isn't he-" Cheetor said as he looked around. "Sigh let's get them reformatted first." An hour later everything was finished and everyone was getting used to their new forms. Quickstrike was especially happy as he was now a wolf since it was hard to reformat fuzors. Nightscream was in the Archives reading. His favorite documents were written by Optimus Prime and Galvatron themselves. Prime's document was astudy of the Autobot Matrix of leadership. Galvatron's was a long study of The Key to Vector Sigma. Nightscream was in the middle of reading Galvatron's article. " What if there was a way to upgrade the key and make copies," Nightscream read aloud. "What if-" Nightscream read before he was interupted by the rest of his team coming through the door. "Oh! Hey Cheetor! Heheh......great." THat's it for now please comment on it.
