Magic and Steel Part 21Elita found Optimus Prime high up on a ledge on the side of Mount St. Hillary, legs hanging over the edge, gaze fixed on the fiery sunset that closed this eventful day. He didn’t turn to acknowledge her as she settled down beside him, simply continued to stare out at the horizon. His hand did move, however, reaching out to wrap around hers and squeeze gently.Magic and Steel Part 21 by kenyastarflight
“I missed you.” The words were faint, but resonated in her spark nonetheless. “Not a day went by when I did not wish you could be at my side. I hate this war for many reasons… but the fact that it separates us is one of the most galling.”
“I missed you too, Optimus.” She slid closer to him, taking comfort in the contact of his broad shoulder pressed against hers. “I’m just glad I can see you again. Even in circumstances this strange.”
They were silent a long time, gazing over the landscape that spread out from the foot

“Calm down, Merriweather,” Flora advised. “I know we’re all on edge at the moment…”
“There’s an understatement,” muttered Mama Odie.
“But getting upset with each other will do nothing to make the situation better,” Flora finished, raising an eyebrow at the voodoo queen.
“He got us into this mess!” Merriweather retorted. “He should at least be doing something about it! Not standing there falling asleep standing up!”
“Oh dear, please don’t fight,” Fauna urged, patting Merriweather’s arm. “You know it upsets me.”
“Then get upset for all I care!” Merriweather snapped, throwing her arms into the air. “Am I the only one here who cares that innocent people are getting hurt by Maleficent out there?”
Nexus Point Part 1-15There’s no way in Hell any of the other Blades are having a worse training session than me. Spencer had been thinking that for the past half-hour, and he was fully willing to lay down money on that mental bet.Nexus Point Part 1-15 by kenyastarflight
“Well, this is a problem,” Skywarp observed, sounding far too cheerful for the Blade’s tastes. “Don’t worry, though, Hook’s on his way with his team. He’s got this.”
“That doesn’t really reassure me,” Spencer groaned.
Under normal circumstances, Spencer tried to keep an upbeat attitude about things. He liked to think he wasn’t naïve – he was a New Yorker, naïveté kind of fell by the wayside once you’d lived in that city for very long – but for the most part he tried to look at life with an optimistic mindset. Setbacks happened, but you worked around and through them rather than letting them rule your life. And while getti
Magic and Steel Part 19Starscream scowled as he watched Maleficent hover over the battlefield, a gloating smile on her face. She was such an easy target there… it would only take one blast of his null rays to immobilize her and send her plummeting to the seething horde below. Obedient to her the Heartless might be, but somehow he doubted that they would pass up the opportunity to tear fresh prey apart, especially as crazed as they seemed to be at the moment. Too bad she was probably shielded at the moment.Magic and Steel Part 19 by kenyastarflight
Shouldn’t it be working by now? he thought, narrowing his optics. He was no expert at fae biology (if you could even call the inner workings of a creature of magic biological), but if she was really so susceptible to iron, shouldn’t she be showing signs of ingesting it? If the stuff burned her on contact, then surely having it rattling through her systems couldn’t be good…
He snarled and fired off a curt reply.
