[RP post - 'Flight Diversions']
Laserbeak doesn't often come down here any more. His work here finished some time ago, and he's learned other ways to get in and out of the Nexus. If he comes down here, it's mostly to check on the portal - that it's still there, that it's undisturbed, that it hasn't begun spewing any invading armies.

He's still a few corners away from it when the mini-portal appears in front of him. The camera-bird twists and tries to slow down, but he's flying too fast. In a second he's through it and... somewhere else?

He wheels, adjusting his lenses to the sudden light and trying to get his bearings while the wind (where'd that come from?) buffets him. He's high now, a few thousand feet above ground instead of below it, and there's a sun...

It almost looks like Earth.

Laserbeak shutters his lenses for a millisecond, but the sight doesn't go away. There's a building down there, in the desert. He hesitates, then drops, anti-detection tech at full capacity and trusting his armour to protect him if he is caught. 

There's nothing for it. He's going in.

Bumblebee chuckles as she hunkers down to lift Optimus from the hole that he and the sparklings have dug. "Wow, you guys are filthy. Even you, Rap! How's a guy your size get that much dirt all over him?"

Rap just gives her his engaging grin as he hugs the snuggling Honey.

Laserbeak notices the group of Cybertronians as he descends. He's keeping most of his sensors out for security measures - but if there are Autobots here (and yes, it looks like they are)...

Well, then he should have nothing to fear. He hopes.

He skims the roof and lands close to the edge, far away enough to be out of sight. He listens: best be sure what he's getting into before he introduces himself. (After all, he couldn't blame them for reacting badly to a random unannounced mech with spy tech appearing in their base...)

She stands with the snuggly chibi on her hip. "I wonder if I should wash you guys now. It's barely past noon and I know you're just gonna be at it again."

"Is that bad?" asks Optimus worriedly.

"No. I don't think so." She laughs and bounces him slightly.

...He knows that voice!

Laserbeak hops to the edge and peeks over. It is! The little Optimus!

Well, guess I've got no excuse for not introducing myself...

He takes off and drops into the courtyard, making sure to circle around and back to the other 'bots. As much as he'd like to just flop onto Optimus's head, sneaking up on the little ones probably wouldn't get the reaction he wants.

"This is Nellis Airforce Base, in Nevada. But I can't tell you much else, other than the coordinates," says Bee apologetically, taking Honey as the sparkling decides to snuggle Optimus as he snuggles Laserbeak.

He nods. "So you're sharing space with the humans?"

"Most of the base is a few miles that way." She points. "But there are a couple who live here."

Laserbeak follows her pointing, making a note of it as he looks around again. He likes to know where he is. "Really? Are they scientists?" He knows some scientists live in the new bases on Earth...

"No. I was in the Nexus being repaired." She looks down at Honey as she remembers what else happened that day.

"Ah. Battle damage's a glitch, huh?"
nottabeater From: nottabeater Date: December 10th, 2007 05:48 pm (UTC) (Link)
"Yeah. But Jazz and this Decepticon Seeker spark kept me around while some others got my shell repaired."

Honey looks up with a trill of laughter, then beeps earnest baby nonsense before returning to her cuddling of birdy and chibi.

Laserbeak looks over at Honey. "Hey, what's so funny?" he asks, giving a laugh of his own.
nottabeater From: nottabeater Date: December 10th, 2007 09:41 pm (UTC) (Link)
"Knew that was comin'." The big sparkling chuckles and lets Honey grab Optimus and dart away with him, then goes in pursuit.

Laserbeak darts out into the courtyard, then reminds himself to slow down and give the others a chance.

Rap darts toward his sister, laughing as she makes a funny whirring sound and dashes away agilely.

Then Roach decides to get in on it, and the big blue sparkling's dancing on one foot so as to not step on the obstreperous cellphone bot. "Whoa, man!"
variable_focus From: variable_focus Date: December 11th, 2007 06:44 pm (UTC) (Link)
Laserbeak laughs and zips between them, making Rap's job a bit harder - or maybe not, of course.

She's not there!

There's a giggle from overhead, and then she's hopping off the top of the tank and booking it toward the door, one arm wrapped firmly around Optimus.

Who waves.

Foiled! "Argh!" Laserbeak flails and flops dramatically mid-air before giving chase. "You won't get away from me!"
nottabeater From: nottabeater Date: December 12th, 2007 07:31 pm (UTC) (Link)
"Bbbbbbbbb!" She's a mad giggle all over the living room. Bee lifts her legs to make sure she's not getting run over.

Laserbeak zips hither and thither in pursuit, though if either Roach or Rap come into view, he'll break off to give them a quick buzz, too.
nottabeater From: nottabeater Date: December 12th, 2007 08:32 pm (UTC) (Link)
"Whoa!" Roach laughs, then stands in such a way as to make a good place to run under.

"Hey, Rap, you're gonna wreck somebody's gyros," calls Bee after a few moments.

"Bbbbbb!" argues Honey, holding up a pointing finger.

Optimus is just grinning and watching the world blur.

Laserbeak is too giddy to comment. He's whistling steadily, and gripping whoever's under him tightly. Wheeeeeee!

He knew Earth was fun!

Rap stops and grins at his mother, then carefully sets all the little ones down on their feet to unwind.

Honey toots happily and weaves around with her arms out, stepping over Optimus, who's laying on his back and giggling.
variable_focus From: variable_focus Date: December 14th, 2007 07:52 pm (UTC) (Link)
Laserbeak hovers around drunkenly. "That was fun..."
