Well everyone, it has been an amazing ride!
But sadly, all good things must come to an end...but I will be working on a sequel!
It's going to be set in Revenge of the Fallen
But I need help with a title...
'This is so totally up the shiz!'
A whole year had passed since Tai found out she was part robot...a whole year of learning to fight combat, a whole year of joining a new military team called NEST as their new strategist, a whole year of pranking the newest Autobot's that had just arrived...luckily, three were ladies, which was amazing for Tai- a whole year full of laughter, fun, and love...
A whole year without Blurr.
She missed him...his fast speech, his jokes, his hugs...but Optimus had assigned her a new guardian.
'Barricade!?' Jazz exclaimed, clutching onto Tai protectively as the Con turned Autobot glared at the silver mech with glowering optics. 'Hell no!' He was so busy giving the Prime a piece of his mind, that he didn't notice Tai smacking him on the chest. 'I am putting my foot down on this one!'
'Jazz.' Tai muttered.
'There is no way I am trusting that...that...pit-slaggin' con wit my Tai-dye!'
'Jazz!' Tai tried again, this time a bit louder.
'Your processors must be going crazy if you think that he can be trusted...'
'JAZZ!!' This time Tai screamed loudly, causing all three of the mechs to flitch.
'Yes?' He then looked down and noticed her face was turning slightly red.
'Just because...I'm part...robot...doesn't mean...I don't need..oxygen!' She gasped out loudly.
'Sorry!' He then accidently dropped her the ground where she lay gasping for air. 'My bad!' Barricade simply rolled his optics and gently helped the gasping cyborg girl to her feet.
It was dropped after that. Barricade wwas actually a pretty cool guardian to have...he, of course, changed his Alt. Mode to a 2010 Black Mustang with Silver racing stripes...He got rid of the Decepticon Symbol, and the 'To Punish and Enslave..' on the side of him. Tai just painted a mean looking skull on the empty spot. He actually grinned at that.
But of course, besides all of the activity at the Autobot base in the newly located Diego Garcia, the Decepticons were no longer laying low as everyone had hoped. In three months time, Tai had found three of them hiding out in various disguises...a news chopper, a tow truck, and oddly enough...an R.V.
That dude had been huge!
Not to mention very boxy...
Arcee and Tai had become instant friends...both were feisty and were wanting to prove themselves to the mechs along with her sister Moonracer. Chromia and Tai however, were not getting along very well...at all.
People guessed that it was because their tough, sarcastic attitudes clashed...as it turned out, Chromia had been good friends with Elita-1...so when Optimus had told her that he had found their sparkling, she had been overjoyed at first.
'You found her? She's online?' She ranted on happily. 'Does she look like Elita?'
Optimus let out a sigh through his vents. 'Not exactly...'
'Well than, does she look like you?'
The Autobot supreme commander glanced over at Ratchet, who was trying to laugh at his leaders expense, and then back at the blue femme.
'She has my optic...' He stated slowly, shrugging.
Chromia looked incredibly confused. 'Optic?'
The sounds of skateboard wheels reached Optimus's hearing receptors, indicating that Tatyana had arrived home from her job as the base barista. She found it easier to travel around the base by board, complaining it was like taking five mile hikes between rooms.
'Oh there she is!' He breathed out a sigh of relief. Chromia, Arcee, and Moonracer all turned expecting to see a little femme Optimus clone...but what they saw was completely different.
A human girl with bright pink and blonde hair.
She appeared to be wearing a bright blue t-shirt with the words Note to self: I'm rad! written on the front, a bright green and black zebra striped hoodie, and a pair of faded skinny jeans with black converse. She did an ollie off of her board, a mocha in her hand as she walked towards the Mechs and Femmes in front of her. She swished her hair to the side, revealing her beautiful glowing optic that continued to glow under her closed eyelid as she yawned widely.
'Sup?' She greeted, taking a sip from the cup before tossing it into a trash can. Chromia raised an optic ridge.
'This is a joke right? Tell me, this is a joke!'
'Well clearly this isn't a funny joke because no one is laughing...so you must be referring to the 'Oh my god, you have got to be fucking kidding me...this can't be real' type of joke.' Tai casually said from Optimu's shoulder. 'And sorry to burst your bubble femme...but I am O.P.'s and E.1.'s offspring...' She than looked at her human hair and some of her still human qualities. 'Technically speaking.'
Then the twins arrived...not Sunny and Sides obviously...these two new twins made them look like little angels of Primus himself. Finding them had been eventful on a number of levels....
'Where the hell are they?' Tai grumbled grumpily. 'Remind myself to glue Teletran 1's buttons together when we get back...'
'Now, now...' Optimus scolded his daughter gently. 'They should be around here somewhere.'
Ratchet had made Tai her very own tracking device in order to help locate signatures of all kinds...be they friend or foe. She was just happy that he made it watch form. 'Sweet!' She had exclaimed when he gave it to her. 'So this is basically like GPS for giant robot seeking?'
'Basically.' The medical officer shrugged.
'Please don't tell me it has an annoying voice that screams at you to turn every five seconds!'
But unfortunately, it did.
'Oh shut up!' She yelled out at it as it said, 'Approaching new specimen.' for the millionth time. 'I know we're approaching!'
'Well, no need to yell.' It answered back with an annoyed tone. Tai jerked slightly and stared at it with wide eyes than turned her gaze to Ratchet.
'We are not an advanced race for nothing, dear.' He answered casually. She then buried her face in Jazz's leg with a groan.
When they approached where they thought the new arrivals to be...all they could see was a ice cream truck. That was only one vehicle...Teletran 1 said there were two new arrivals.
'An ice cream truck?' She asked in confusion. 'But...there're supposed to be two! What the fragton?'
'Now calm down, sweetheart!' Optimus was very confused himself...where were their new comrades?
Than something happened that made everyone jump and brandish their cannons...Tai including, although hers was nowhere near as large as any of the others. It was pretty much a human rocket launcher..except it shot endless supplies of pure plasma.
The Ice cream truck started playing music and started circling them over and over again...the music was than accompanied by a voice that sounded like either Lil' Wayne or some other annoying rap artist.
'Ding-a-ling...come over and get your ice cream...' The truck than bumped into Tai, much like someone would intentionally when they were trying to get with you. Tai growled in annoyance as she was shoved lightly into Optimus's leg.
'Okay...yeah, that's cute...okay..that's enough...alright!' Just as the truck was about to bump into her again, Jazz stepped forward and gave the ice cream truck a shove, which caused it to split apart into two sections.
'Nice going babe...you broke him!' Tai smacked him on the leg. But then the two sections started transforming into two small-ish robots. They were actually shorter than Jazz but taller than Tai...of course. Even Annabelle Lennox was to her stomach already.
'Dat hurt, man!' The more pinkish one exclaimed, rubbing his head.
'Oh great...you two...' Ratchet muttered in annoyance.
'Ratch to the Hatch!' The whiter one exclaimed excitedly. 'Oh man, bro...' They both started up at Optimus like he was some sort of god.
'Optimus Prime!' They both gasped. 'Good to see you...you lookin' shiny...' The pink twin bashed his brother on the head, knocking him to the ground.
'Oh just ignore this slagger...you look good, the flames...' He then gave a thumbs up. 'Nice touch!'
Tai glanced up at Jazz and Arcee, and rubbed the tip of her nose. Luckily, they looked up what that meant...brown noser...or suck up. They both started laughing.
'Nice to see you two again as well...' The Autobot leaders tone sounded very strained, like he wasn't quite so sure if it was a good thing these two particular mechs were here. 'Mudflap and Skids.'
Tai snorted loudly.
The two new twins turned to her. 'Wha's dat pink thing?' Skids asked. Tai glared at him, her optic narrowing dangerously.
'Your face!' She retorted, noticing Jazz grabbing the back of her gray Where the Wild things are t-shirt. 'And the name is Tai Prime!'
And of course, her dad so lovingly told her that she was to be in charge of these twins as well.
'Since when am I a twins wrangler?!' She had exclaimed angrily. 'Sunny and I finally start getting along and then you thrust these guys at me...'
'But Tatyana, you did an amazing job getting the other twins to listen to you...how should these two be any different?'
They both glanced over at the Ice cream twins, as Tai had nicknamed them, and saw that they were messing with something that looked like a power sander of some kind. Mudflap, not being the brightest bulb in the tanning bed, turned it on and it started rampaging around the room like a bull in Spain. Mudflap jumped on it to try and stop it, but ended up being dragged on his stomach and thrown across the room. Skids started laughing at his brothers misfortune before the sander than bashed into him and he ended up getting slammed into the wall, face first.
Tai raised an eyebrow before letting out a soft whimper of displeasure, leaning forward and burying her face in her lap, her hands in her hair.
'So, can I count on you to keep them out of trouble?' Optimus asked uncertainly.
'Yesss....' She whined out, her voice muffled.
Barricade gently patted his new charge on the back with his clawed hand. 'Are you well?'
'Yep!' She than perked up, her hair sticking up every which way. 'I need some coffee...and a donut...' She than thought about it. What did her Dad hate most? Of course, her eating habits! 'Two donuts!' She than got up and slid down the firemen pole Ratchet had installed in all of the tables. 'And I'm gonna put cream and sugar in it...and you guys can't say shit about it!' She yelled in their direction.
She than stalked away, her white blonde hair sticking up slightly.
'Whoa...' Skids muttered from his position. 'She all kinds o' crazy!'
Barricade, Optimus, and Jazz al glared.
Life had gone from alright, to great, to amazing, to extraordinary for Tatyana Topaz Witwicky/Prime.
She had everything she could ever ask for; great friends, a career that she loved...no, not being a barista...she had so many new friends...a great boyfriend, even though he was shiny and silver and a giant alien robot from outer space...finding out that she was part Cybertronian, which had been an interesting experience. She had to learn how all of the Robotic parts on her worked....but she was quick to pick it up. But the one thing that really made her stomach swell with happiness was the one thing she wanted more than anything...ever since her human father was killed...
A cranky War-vet Uncle, an even crankier Grandpa who a tendency to throw large objects, two sets of very annoying yet totally awesome twin brothers...truth be told, she liked Sunny and Sides way more. Despite that the ice cream twins were growing on her. The gangster boyfriend, who was very tough on the outside but a complete and total softie on the inside. The goofy younger brother, who always knew how to cheer her up or make her laugh with random sound bites or songs.
But the best thing of all;
A father who loved her, who would protect her...who would do anything for her.
Even the most simplest of things that seemed very insignificant to some people, but meant the world to her.
He had decided to surprise her by waking her up in the middle of the night and driving way out of Diego Garcia. She had no idea where they were going, due to the fact that she fell asleep in his cab. Despite being half-robot, she shivered slightly in her sleep but the seats started to heat up, which just made her even more tired.
'Tatyana...' A deep, baritone voice broke through her sleep clouded mind. 'Sweetheart, wake up...we're here...'
Tai opened her blue eye and optic blearily, blinking as she tried to wake up fully. 'What is it, Pops?' She mumbled, literally falling out of the cab as she tried to regain her footing. 'Where are we?'
He then sat down next to her and pointed up. She looked up and her eyes widened in amazement. Above their heads were thousands and thousands of stars, glittering brightly and merrily up in the velvety black sky.
A smile than spread across her face.
'You know, when I was little...my Dad would do this too...he'd wake me up in the middle of the night, put me in Blurr's back seat with Chip and my silky and drive me to east Jesus nowhere just to gaze at the stars..' Her voice choked up slightly as she felt a tear run from her optic. She quickly looked away. 'I miss them.' She mumbled, broken heartedly.
Optimus tilted his head to the side, his spark aching for his young humanoid daughter. He gently reached down and plucked her up from the ground and held her in both hands in front of his face.
'I know you do...you will always miss them.' He said in a very gentle tone. 'But they are always going to be around...' He then grinned as she looked up at him. 'I seem to remember a very wise young lady telling me the ones who love up never really leave us...they're always going to be there...'
Tai than smiled a big bright smile. It felt good to be spoken too by a father.
'Question.' She said, tilting her head up at the sky. 'Can you see Cybertron from here?'
Optimus laughed a deep, rich laugh and looked up...clearly searching the stars.
'See that really bright one right there?'
Tai concentrated hard on the sky, searching for the one he was talking about. 'All I see is the Northern Sta...' Realization than hit her. 'The Northern Star is Cybertron?'
Optimus nodded with a smile. Tai snorted and shook her head. 'Figures...' She than sighed and clapped her bare feet together. 'So, what's going to happen now?'
'I'm not sure...' He sighed. Truth be told, he was incredibly worried when Tatyana joined NEST. 'But I'm sure nothing horribly exciting is going to happen anytime soon.'
Tai seriously doubted that.
Meanwhile, on a distant planet that was once so full of life and bright lights...it now was a barren wasteland, riddled with smoke, and poisonous fumes...an ancient evil was hiding in the shadows among the rusted corpses of long dead Mechs and Femmes and Younglings.
His time was coming.
His time for Revenge.
Meet The Cousin is finally done!!!! XDDDD
It's been a good ride full of tears, sweat, laughter, and Energon!
I hope you all are ready for the Sequel!
