[I had intended on roleplaying today, but instead I spent the day being enslaved by my homework. And now I’m ready to drop. I hope to be able to RP tomorrow, but I still have a heap ton of homework, so I don’t know.]
Terradrift had intended on returning to her ship when she was done with her first foray on this world. But the sky had decided to start dumping buckets of water on her helm, and she’d ended up opting for waiting out the deluge in a cave. From the looks of things, it wouldn’t be letting up anytime soon.
Seriously, water falling from the sky? What was wrong with this planet?
[I hate it when I start running out of energy. Might have to save thread starting for after sleep. But maybe I can manage short comm link interactions…hmm]
[Anyone want to RP? =)]
I’ve got something stuck in my pede…. I hope it’s just dirt. I’d hate to have to clean a squished organic off later. So messy.
From here, the planet didn’t look like much. Not the largest, nor most impressive one she’d seen in her travels since the Exodus from Cybertron so many years ago. The green Wrecker frowned for a moment as she considered the world in front of her ships view screen. The intel she’d snagged from a Con outpost she’d wiped out a while back implied that there was a small group of her fellow Autobots here, and that the Decepticons had a much larger force here, as well as there being mentions of the planet being rich in energon. An odd fact for an organic mud ball.
Terradrift supposed she could scan the planet, but at the same time, if there was indeed a large Decepticon force here, they might detect her if she did so, and while she relished the thought of a good fight, she was no fool. Sky Skimmer was a small patrol craft, not a full combat cruiser. No, best to slip in undetected, leave her comms closed, and investigate the planet personally. If she discovered any truth to the intel she’d recovered, then she’d begin looking for other Autobots.
Mind made up, she eased her old ship into the planet’s atmosphere, the hull groaning as she did so. Sky Skimmer continued her decent, lower and lower until she passed through the clouds, and found herself and her pilot above a vast body of water. Terradrift increased her vessel’s speed, seeking land, and ideally a good spot to set down and hide her ship so she could begin investigating.
Hours later, she found what she was looking for: a large enough clearing in a forest for her to conceal Skimmer in. Once her ship was perched on her landing struts, Terradrift lowered the ramp and stepped out, stopping halfway down the ramp to survey her surroundings. It wasn’t her first time on an organic world, but they all tended to be different, and this one was no exception. Hopefully, this one wouldn’t have as much slime as the last one she’d landed on. With that unpleasant memory in the forefront of her mind, the Wrecker finished exiting her vessel, raising the ramp and shutting her vessels hatch after she did so. No need to have anything local wandering in there while she was out scouting about.
