Nexus trip

Oriana waves to Optimus where he's sitting on Kigan's hip, then slips into the passenger seat of the little purple Mini and carefully closes the door. "What does 'girl time' mean anyway, Cureall? I tried to look it up and couldn't find a really clear definition."

Then she looks over her shoulder and feels a little wistful as she sees Optimus scrambling for his basketball. She still suspects that her original liked that game. But the thought of several hours spent with her best friend and foster mother is also appealing, even though she has no idea what they'll be doing.

Cureall laughs softly as they cruise smoothly along the road. "The phrase is more human, where females go through many biological issues, that they must talk about. But in our case? We are going to go put pretty clothes on you and discuss how you feel about the males in our lives."

"How I feel...." Oriana gives the dash a bewildered look. "I don't understand."

"Mm, are they good to you? Has there been anybody you have a crush on? You don't mind babysitting little Optimus, do you?"

[identity profile] oriana-pax.livejournal.com 2008-03-29 03:15 am (UTC)(link)
"Kigan and Optimus are always good to me, and I love babysitting."

Then she frowns slightly. "Crush?"

"This one does not meet all of the people you do. She was wondering if you made and male friends you see in a romantic light?" A light on the dash blinks happily.

She obeys, her outline blurring slightly in her own version of trembling as she steps away from Cureall. Then she scans the mech and pauses with a frown as she wonders what's gone wrong with her sensors.

Ratchet offers her a smile, then turns his attention back to the little purple car, a medic's concern overlaying even his intense curiosity at this youngster created from his bondmate's spark.

Cureall unfolds into her robot form and and sighs heavily. "I was being safe, this one does not know how she missed you Ratchet."

She blinks up and squeaks in surprise. "Are you okay?"

"Actually, you didn't," he says gently, sensing that the little femme holds some version of him dear. "But... it's been a long time since that kind of thing could hurt me."

Oriana frowns and looks at Cureall, feeling bewildered and hoping for an explanation.

[identity profile] violet-cure.livejournal.com 2008-03-30 02:56 am (UTC)(link)
"You...are not the one who saved this one." She says her breath still heavy, trying to collect herself. "But like him, you are not alive."

With that the little robot falls to her rear.

"I have." Back when he was first learning to navigate.

He settles himself on the grass, unconciously shrinking a little so that he doesn't tower over the femmes as much. "But you're right. I am here for a reason, though I hope it's not a bad one."

[identity profile] violet-cure.livejournal.com 2008-03-31 02:06 am (UTC)(link)
She settles her self on her knees next to him and attempts to gather Oriana into her lap. "Then please Ratchet. Tell this one what is going on?"

[identity profile] oriana-pax.livejournal.com 2008-03-31 02:13 am (UTC)(link)
The smaller femme lets herself be gathered, recognizing her foster mother's need for tactile comfort, and feeling the need of a bit of support herself. Her spark still has that odd feeling in it.

Ratchet watches them till they get settled, then looks down for a moment before he says, "I'm also here because a... friend... roused my curiosity by mentioning a rookie that was created from my bondmate's spark."

[identity profile] violet-cure.livejournal.com 2008-03-31 02:19 am (UTC)(link)
"Your bondmate?" Cureall blinks in confusion and tilts her head, one hand gently stroking Oriana's hair protectively. "Did you die before the baby was sparked?"

"I don't even know who it was. It was a random morter round, and could have been completely automated."

Greatest medical mind on Cybertron... had died like a common grunt field drone.

"I see." She blinks and gently puts Oriana down and crawls over to hug Ratchet tight.

He solidifies so that she can, though his return embrace is lighter than it should be. He can be touched and held, but he has no weight here on this side of the veil.

"Shh," he says softly. "It was a long time ago, and most of the people that I knew and loved are with me now."

Oriana blinks at this where she's standing to one side. "But you said I have a niece."

Ratchet nods, still holding Cureall. "She was created by the femme that Prima and I built when we were young and her bondmate."

[identity profile] violet-cure.livejournal.com 2008-04-04 04:49 am (UTC)(link)
Cureall nods but lingers a moment before releasing him and leaning back. "Is her mother like you? Or Prima?"

"Ah... well, 'sparkling' is a relatively new term. Before Earth we never thought of even our custom creations as children. Not as they do now, anyway. We watched out for them while they were gaining experience, but they were adults like everyone else."

"Panacea wasn't," says Oriana. "I've heard stories."

"No. She was. She just needed a little extra help for awhile after a lab accident." Ratchet's smile fades at the memory. He's still nonplussed to think that the first thing his daughter ever did in the lab was nearly blow herself to glory three days after she was completed.

"Oh! The poor thing!" Cureall squeaks, and fusses with Oriana's hair again. "You didn't answer this one though, did you not make any small ones for yourself?"

He shakes his head. "Prima and I both died before anyone thought to make sparklings."

Cureall frowns again and sighs. "Sorry. This one loves little one's and she was curious."

Ratchet stops with his mouth open, then goes 0_0 for a moment before laughing and shaking his head. "Bad mental image. No... Skyfire is very much a mech. He and his bondmate live on one of the outlaying planets."

"Ahh, well good for him." She blinks and seems to be thinking on something. "Are you ever sad?"
