    Summary

    It is Etta that notices it first. Her mouth curls into a small smile, but the rest of her face bears a mask of deep, deep sorrow. “It’s nothing,” Etta tells her when Diana presses at her, the lie deep but harmless. It had been the same sorrow that Diana had felt inside herself realizing what she carried.

    They’d not even had a body to bury, ashes to scatter beyond those blown into the sky amongst the parts of the plane that sunk down to earth. This, the life inside of her, is the last piece of Steve on this earth.

    --

    Steve leaves something behind.

    Summary

    Short ficelt inspired by a gifset on tumblr, where Dudley stands up to Vernon and tells Harry he doesn't think he's a waste of space and I went off on a headcanon tangent of "whatifs". Not beta'd not proofed, just copied from the post so people could read it easier :)

    Summary

    With a put-upon sigh, Cliffjumper split and retracted his outer and inner chest plates, revealing a torso full of complex mechanisms. Most of what was visible was covered in tough cushioning cable, but Kim identified the brachial actuators from Ratchet’s lectures. And the secondary sensor router. And nests of fans and radiator plates that made up his primary coolant system. Then she noticed the smell. It was not exactly unpleasant—earthy and damp, a little like mildew and a little like swamp. It was a weird smell to come from a mech. Abruptly, June leaned out and down, one hand reaching out to point at the inner surface of Cliffjumper’s armor. “Ratchet, what is that?”

    Summary

    It also didn’t help that the average glyph message was only three characters long, used no articles or prepositions, and usually had no verbs. What was the proper response to:: Curiosity; Sensation of great speed? Was it a question? A comparison?  Why, after a brief visit by National Security Director Mearing, did four different ‘Bots send:: Emphasis; overlapping? Why was a particularly bad joke by Bulkhead derided as ::Undercharged when there were actual glyphs for Not funny and Humor fail? How did any of that work?
