"I hear Pripyat is pleasant this time of year."
Sniper stood watch, just outside the old travel agency building. Aside from somehow withstanding the rest of the block collapsing around it, the shop was impressive for having reasonably preserved brochures. Captain and Pilot would often amuse themselves by planning trips to countries that no longer existed, and Engineer would gather what they discarded for kindling. Whenever Sniper grew sufficiently bored, he'd call out with something he thought was witty.
It was a bit like that, being on watch; you'd either say something funny and die knowing your sense of humour was too good for this world,

It had survived things that no mug should have had to endure.
It had been dropped off cliffs, plunged into radioactive water, used to hold questionable substances and once travelled several hundred kilometres after Pilot tied a helium balloon to it. It had been thrown at Snippy countless times. It had suffered the indignity of being sat on by Engie after the Captain left it lying on a chair.
It had never been washed in its life.
But in the end, all it took was one little nudge, and the mug the great, glorious mug was reduced to a few shards of broken ceramic and a spatter of sad-looking tea.
It happened like this:

Hey folks! It is now 6pm. You know what that means. It is interview time! Let us begin.
Here is how the interview works: You can all ask questions and chat freely in the chatroom called AtAChat. I will be copy-pasting your questions to Alexiuss and he will answer them in live time in ATAInterview.

Oh Captain, my Captain! I say it to mock,
You're lucky as hell but to me you're a c***.
Please spare me the missions, I've no head for heights,
Balloons and big lists lead me only to blights.
Evading the probes of an alien race,
Then having to witness your > : ( angry face...
But what choice have I? I'm involved in these fights,
With Cancerous space-monsters full of red sprites,
And Lemonade weirdos and God knows what next,
Just how can you stay so serene and unvexed?
What price should I pay for your simple delights,
Be eaten by whales after soiling my whites?
I know you won't listen, but you'll come unstuck,
And one of these day

You are you
Are broken words words are
are the words that we speak in
Such a manner that seems almost
Rythmical in its
Chaos that's what we unfold.
Until you think
But when you think chaos
Chaos still unveils
Rears its ugly head though behind that
Maybe this chaos
This chaos this repeating
These words are not
These words will not repeat
Like a past you've mistaken with
Words fresh anew you differentiate
Or more so try
Dreams from the true.

Ring through ears so keen on a body of lean
Fur bristled with glass amber eyes
Set in the skull with a soul so despised
Chain down the beast and muzzle wolfs bane
Claws that once flew swift are now held in disdain
Teeth are still sharp but will never taste freedom
A head once held proudly is now only down beaten
The wolf is held close in the captor's cage
Drive him to swivel and snap, driven by rage
Fur once so proud is shrouded by stripes
Of bars so cold that holds the wolfs strife
Till eyes meet the sky with could cautious steps
Like a soul ripping clean from a barricade of bayonets

A malevolent tone
Like a blankly drawn mask
That hides the low crone.
But paint you a smile
Which you cannot deceive
Those tears which fall black
From under your sleeves.
Knife wrenched in red
Take that smile away
Draw out a frown
For the demons to play.
Your mask of emotions
Can't hide the true you
The monster not angel
Underneath the mask of you.

It had been a few megacycles before Prius was finally able to escape the underground part of Kaon, and make her way onto a mass transit system on her way up north to Iacon city. This would speed up her travel time ten fold, since a good lot of it was just spent trying to run from elite guardsman and trying to keep away from any more that caught onto her trail, and would make it so that she reached her point of interest on time. She was still quite surprised that none of the guards had managed to catch her, but her mind was more fixed on where she was going. She made it to look out of the large glass pa

Prius woke again in the morning, her body lain across the seat she'd fallen asleep in yesterday. She was surprised she could even sleep for such a long amount of time, but the long period of rest couldn't do anything but wonders for her, since a good lot of her time was spent running and fighting with nearly no break. The little white femme stretched and stood up, taking in a moment to observe this new quarters she was situated in. Megatron had already gone, but it was quiet outside of the quarters.
Prius hummed to herself, and moved around the rather large area of the room. She dug through drawers and cra

Kaon, an enormous city in the southern hemisphere of Cybertron. It is well known for it's densely populated slums beneath the surface of the city, and it's high crime rate. It was the last place you'd want to get lost in, that's for sure, but the dingy, overcrowded slums of the city was where it was the worst. Light from the surface of the city was too dull here, and suspicious looking Cybertronians lurked everywhere they could hide, just waiting for someone to come by with something they needed or that they could salvage and sell to pay for illegal weapons or oils. Scraplets had all but ravaged the
