Transformers: Heavy Metal Earth. Home of the human race...and now, our own. While Autobots and Decepticons fight our never-ending war across the universe, trying to establish new planets, and bring new life to the old ones...I and my team have taken refuge of this planet. We live among its people, feared and adored, hated and considered heroes. We defend them from the Decepticons who would choose to enslave this planet in an attempt to resuscitate our own. The Autobots will not resort to the destruction of a race, to ensure our survival. I am Optimus Prime, and Earth is our new home. We have made many new friends, and we shall defend them and this planet from any and all threats, human or Cybertronian. Once...there was the legend of Sentinel Maximus. He was a great Cybertronian, who went off to explore other planets...with him he took the Vector Sigma computer and key, objects of great power, and he established new Transformer planets and races across the universe. Legend says he was the one to have taken Velocitron, Gigantian and Beast Planet and turned them in Cybertronian planets...But then he got lost to the stars...some say he was just a legend...others say he crashed on the next planet...some say he didn't crash but is still creating new planets, and still others say that he decided to live on one of his creations, never returning home...Cybertron could've used the computer to restore energy and life...but at the same time...if the Decepticons had gotten it, the consequences would have been disastrous... July 15th, 2015 "Look, 'Bee, I didn't ask to help rebuild a bridge. I'd much prefer scouting for 'Cons." Bumblebee gave him a hard look, "Come on, Cliffjumper, we wrecked this thing, we need to fix it." An orange and blue walked over and stood next to a truck carrying beams and supports. "The Decepticons wrecked this place. Why should we clean up for their messes. I don't see why we need to blow a gasket helping these guys anyway," Huffer whined, crossing his arms. Bumblebee sighed and finished welding a beam into place. "Why couldn't Prime have sent me here with Grimlock and Brawn instead of you two." "Because they'd blow up the bridge quicker than the Decepticons! We've got finesse!" Cliffjumper replied with a laugh. Bumblebee jostled him, "Finesse my diodes, next time, don't use the bridge as a weapon." Bumblebee, Cliffjumper and Huffer were repairing River Falls' primary bridge, connecting the city to the forests and residential areas. The city itself was practically floating in the middle of the water, if not for a small piece of landing holding it to the rest of the state. Unique, River Falls was a shining modern city, in the middle of a large lake in the middle of a state. You had all of the conveniences of life in the city, with houses and nature less than a half-hour's drive away. It was in the forests surrounding this city that the Autobots chose to make their new home and base. From there they coordinated all of their missions and plans, in effort to stop the Decepticons, as well as help the planet. Using a special 'ground bridge' developed by the team's scientist, Jetfire, they were able to traverse the planet in minutes, to be able to help in any situation, be it Decepticon trouble, or human trouble. The Autobots' team was comprised of: Optimus Prime, their leader and supreme commander of the Autobots, he coordinated everything he could on Earth and in the stars, making sure all of the Autobots across the universe stay in contact and help each other. Jetfire, the team's scientist, he's huge, and a great fighter, having turned the tide in many of the Autobots fights. Grimlock, the team's warrior, while clumsy, violent and seemingly unintelligent, he had a great mind for battle, and while they didn't want him around in daily life, every Autobot thanked Primus when he was on their side in a fight. Brawn, the team's demolitions expert, is a pure brawler at heart. He tears apart Decepticons whenever he gets a chance, and loves the battle. Not very intelligent, but he follows orders well, making up for his shortcomings by being a good soldier. Huffer, the team's engineer, he designed their base, as well as building most of it himself. He's cynical and a whiner, but can be counted on when necessary. Cliffjumper, the team's weapon master, he's one of the most skillful Autobots at using his guns, weaponized gas, and any weapon he can get his hands on. If you need it fired at the enemy, he can help. And lastly, Bumblebee, the team's scout and spy, he's the youngest but also one of the nicest Autobots on the team. He cares about Earth and their human friends more than anyone else. He may not be the best fighter, but he can hold his own. Welding the final beam in place, Huffer opened his communicator, "Hey, Jetfire...bridge us back to base. My transistors are screaming here." Bumblebee sighed, finishing cleanup, and looked at Cliffjumper, who simply shrugged. A large blue portal of energy opened close to them. The three ran at it and jumped through, it closing behind them. -------------------------------------------------------------------------- Yes, I know, another story from me. The difference is, I feel this one is of much higher quality, and I'm actually going to continue writing this one. The plot has already been mapped out, and more has been finished than posted.
