This is my first Animated Fanfic, so please go easy on me if I get a few things wrong because the show still hasn't come on T.V here in Australia. The only thing that helps me to getting it close is the DVD, Transform And Roll Out. Also, I'll be using a character's old name, despite how I increased the name a bit last year. See if you can guess who it is before the end of this chapter because this is one of my oldest characters. ------------------------ Chapter 1: A New Ally "Are you serious? A member of the Elite Guard is coming?!" Optimus' voice rang through the Earth Base of the Autobots. The other Autobots looked up from their work as they heard their young commander's voice from afar. It was easy to tell who he was talking to, because anyone knew that he sometimes didn't get along with Ultra Magnus, but neither did he get along with Sentinel Prime at all. Ultra Magnus nodded on the screen that Optimus was staring at with intense blue optics as the commander said, "Affermitive." Optimus just gave a frown as he bit his bottom lip bitterly. "Mind telling me who it is?" he asked, praying to Primus that he hoped it wasn't Sentinel. "You'll just have to wait until the ship arrives. It'll be arriving on Earth in just two days," Ultra Magnus answered, ignoring the frown that the warshot gave. Optimus just gave a slight nod and said, "Fine, but I pray to Primus it's not Sentinel," he grumbled. "You'd do well to give this Elite Warrior complete respect, Optimus!" Ultra Magnus warned. "This warrior's rank is much higher than Sentinel's. Am I clear on that?" Optimus just gave a small shrug, but he stood back and gave a salute, "Yes sir." Ultra Magnus just gave a nod and then turned the screen off. Optimus shook his head and he turned back, only to come face to face with Ratchet, who frowned at the young Earth Autobot Commander, "Something on your CPU, Prime?" he asked, slight concern in his voice. "I'm fine, Ratchet, just a bit annoyed at Ultra Magnus. But now I'm curious to know who this Elite Guard Warrior is," Optimus answered. "Ah, the kids are always curious these days," Ratchet grumbled jokily. Optimus laughed a little bitterly as Bumblebee, Prowl, and Bulkhead, arrived in the room. "So, Bossbot, whose our new recruit?" Bumblebee asked. Optimus shrugged, "Don't know. Ultra Magnus said that this warrior's rank is much higher than Sentinel's." Bulkhead lifted an optic ridge, "You think he's just as good as Prowl?" he asked. Prowl leaned on the wall, obviously listening, but not speaking. "Don't know that either, but if Ultra Magnus said that this bot's rank is higher than Sentinel's, then I'm sure he's just as good as any of us," Optimus answered, still a little bitter. "Then if he's fast, I'll bet I'll beat in a matter of seconds!" Bumblebee laughed as Sari, who'd just dropped in, put a hand on her forehead. Ratchet gave a sigh, these young bots just don't even learn. "So when will the bot be arriving?" he asked. "In two Earth days, Ultra Magnus says," Optimus answered as he relaxed a little. "Then we should find a place where the ship can land without causing a distress on the humans," the old CMO said. "Suppose so. But where is the main question." "Um... I have a theroy," Sari stated. "This should be interesting," Bumblebee teased, which earned him a slap to the back of the head by Prowl. ------------------------ Two days later, at mid-afternoon, the Autobots, and Sari, waited impatiently on the island of the Dinobots, who were too busy to care about their visitors. Ratchet had a computer out that would communicate with the ship if it drew any closer towards the Earth. Optimus had his arms folded, while Bumblebee and Sari were mucking around like little children, and Prowl was just sitting on the grass, meditating. Optimus Prime looked towards Ratchet and said, "Anything, yet?" Ratchet looked up, an annoyed look on his face, "If you keep asking me, Prime, then my answer's just going to keep being the same! So don't get your circuits in your head a twist! The ship should be here any second now." Bumblebee was about to come up with a retort when a loud roar thundered over the island. Confused, everyone looked up and saw a dark blue and red ship that was about half the size of their broken ship, the Ark. It's body was shaped like a rectangle while the cockpit was oval shaped. Optimus guessed that was where their mysterious ally was located. As the ship came into landing, wheels from under it's triangle wings, and underneath it's cockpit, appeared as it touched down. The engines gave a deep hiss as the flaps on the wings evened themselves. The engine died down and everyone became silent. Waiting to see what happened next. Slowly, a door opened on its right side and stairs appeared. Dust was picked up as the stranger walked down, hiding him from their sights, so the Autobots had to wait until the stranger was clear from the dust. Golden optics glowed as the dust cleared to reveal taloned feet. More dust swivelled up and the stranger lifted a bat like wing. Within seconds, the wing was lifted upwards finally revealling the stranger. Everyone gasped in shock and awe. Especially Optimus. The stranger appeared to be femme, her body was dark blue, sky blue, and silver. Her face was silver that had a dark blue helmet with a 'V' shaped spike in the middle of her crest, her lips were red as though it had been covered in human lipstick. The joints in the elbows and ankles were silver while her shoulder joints, including her thighs, had dark blue on them, including the knees. Her arms, legs, stomach, a whip-like tail, and a reptiallian head on her chest, were all sky blue, while the horns on the back of the reptile's skull were also dark blue, including the claws onher hands and feet. Silver was also on her waist and the sides of her torso. The stranger's golden optics, ones that were so rare amongst the Autobots, looked upon her allies. It was as though she was reading their eyes, trying to distinguish their emotions. Although they feel upon Prowl's, she couldn't read his easily because of the wide visors that covered them. Her optics then fell upon Optimus, and a small smile pulled at the corner of her lips. She then spoke in a voice that sounded femme, but it had a light ting of bells to it, "It's been a long while... brother." ------------------------ Dun dun dun! Cliffhanger! Surprised? Well, see if you can guess who the femme is! First one to guess get's a cookie!
