standing on stone you stand beside me

WHO: Kagerou + Open
WHERE: A mountain in Alpha Trion's Sector
WHEN: Evening-Late night. Week of 6/3
WHAT: Keeping vigil for those who left. At least, that's what he says he's doing.
WARNINGS: Feelings.

He's listened to her last message more times than he can count. Of course, they'd said their goodbyes in person, but, she'd left it for him, all the same, knowing he would need it. Knowing he needed such a reassurance. It's good to hear her voice, but, as always, when the recording ends, he feels the empty ache take over again, and turns his attention to the horizon once more.

Power Joe's stupid golf clubs are in his room now. Along with the trinkets and pieces of life Kay left behind her. He's proud of them. Proud of her. And hopeful. They're not lost. They're doing what must be done -- making their own choices.

They promised they would be all right. He made sure they promised him that.

So he has to remain. He has to stay here, or else what will they have to come back to? He would be a poor friend, a poor parent, not to stand here, stand guard... and wait for them.

Maybe there's a better place to do it. But he can't think of one. He's standing alone, somewhere high and wild, where the wind blows lonely through the panes of his wings, over the rocky heights around him. It's the place he can best see. Where he'd seen her off... The place he'd held Kay in his hands for the last time. Wished her luck -- wished her to stay brave and strong -- wished for her to come back as soon as she could.

"It's okay, Kagerou..."

His thoughts are a mess. He wants to be strong. To be brave -- for their sakes. He wants to make them proud when they return. And he believes they will. He knows they will.

But the knowledge does nothing to fill the ache in his AI. The way his hands feel empty. How he knows tomorrow, when he goes to check in on the police headquarters, there won't be any bright, amused voice calling out to him, using that stupid nickname. How when he finally returns to his room... it's going to be too quiet. There won't be any quiet footsteps in the night.

He folds his arms over his chest, bowing his head.

"I'll come home. That's a promise."

He wants to be prouder than he is. He wants to be braver than he is. But all he can do is stand here, bowed against the wind, and cling to the memories he's always held so dear.

As promised when they'd been texting earlier, Gunmax tried not to keep Kagerou waiting too long.

--Is what Gunmax would have liked to have happened, but what actually happened was that Gunmax ended up driving around for an hour trying to find a convenient way to get himself and Gunbike up to wherever Kagerou had decided to perch his birdself, gave up, and ended up climbing the rest of the way. Like sure, he'd wanted to pop on out here to make sure Kagerou was okay, maybe try to cheer him up if he needed it, but that was going to have to wait until he was done bitching.

When he finally got to his destination, he plopped down on his ass and started picking little branches out of one of his knee joints. Hi Kagerou.

"Oh my God, Kagebird. Not all of us can fly. Some of us losers are stuck on the ground, y'know. I mean, look at this! I've got pebbles in places I didn't even know I had!"

Wing was still exploring the city. The place was large, and there were so many sights to see. Tonight he found himself here, in the mountains in one of the sectors...Alpha Trion's he was pretty sure.

He's not trying to be quiet, but he is naturally light on his feet. He'll come around into view, and pause at the sight of the lonely mech, looking as though he's deep in thought. He starts to turn away, but stops, just...reading something melancholy about the other. His spark goes out to the bot, and Wing, always one to want to help, debates a moment how best to approach.

It wasn't long before something landed beside him. Well. Someone to be exact. But he did try his best to be quiet upon approach. Kagerou needed a moment, and he didn't wish to come crashing down on it. But Shadowmaru stood beside him, staring out in front of them silently.

He doesn't say anything. The weight of the situation was already heavy in the air. He could feel it in his AI. Most of all, he worried about Kagerou. With Kay and Power Joe gone, so suddenly like that... Shadowmaru was slightly afraid of how Kagerou felt. So many people had left him before. And now? Shadowmaru pursed his lips.

He shuffled a little closer and gently rested his head against his shoulder.

Blurr was looking for Kagerou. he imagined that the robot would be feeling down over Kay disappearance, as well as the Power Joe's. it had been along day and he spent most of it working with Sentinel to reorganize things at the Police Force.

He was tired and instead of driving he was flying. In car mode. So, if Kagerou noticed a blue sport cars floating in mid air and getting close, that was why.

It was a quiet night. Peaceful. Like most nights around here. Jadewing wondered if he'd ever get used to that.

Right now, though, it was nice. Just flying, feeling the cool night air rushing over his wings as his jet form cut through the night. No duties, no particular destination, just doing what a Seeker was born to do.

Until, that is, he spotted the strange bot brooding on the mountaintop. And he could tell that it was brooding; he'd know that posture anywhere. The question was, what to do about it. Should he just leave the mech to himself, or land and see what was going on?

In the end, curiosity won out. Not like he had anything better to do, after all. He transformed midair, landing easily on the mountain top a little ways behind the other mech before walking over to stand next to him, though leaving enough room between them so as not to intrude on the other mech's personal space.

He didn't say anything at first, just looked out over Cybertron's surface in the same direction the mech had been staring. "Nice view," he commented after a moment, before turning to look at the other mech. "So... is this a private brooding spot, or can anybody join in?"
