'Verse: G1 Transformers with a little TF:A
Rating: PG-13
Warnings: TF cussing.




Jazz left Prowl’s office feeling more than a little off kilter, and not just because of the blue mech he passed along the corridors. Just when he’d thought he’d gotten used to the tactician’s ways, the Datsun did something to throw him off balance. And when he’d adjusted to that, Prowl went and did something else.

It just wasn’t fair, the Ops mechs mused, that the chevroned mech could so easily mess with his CPU, and without even realising he was doing so. Slagging tactician. Must be an innate subroutine.

“Morning. Credit for your thoughts?”

Frag. Not him. Anyone but-

“Morning, Jazz. Nah, you’d only get change back.” The Porsche pulled on a smile, and the cyberninja chuckled. “Fine, I’ll leave your processors floating along behind you. I’ve got a few things to run by Prowl, but wanna go for a drive later on? Last few days I got here, thought I’d take in all the sights I can.”

“Wait!” His panicked tone was really out of character, and the Elite Guard mech stared at him, visor bright with confusion.

“… Sentinel’s in there with Prowl. Apologising. I think we should give them a little privacy.” At least, that was the proper, suitable for public knowledge reason why he didn’t want the other Jazz in Prowl’s office… with Prowl.

“Wow. Guess the mech really got through to him. Heard he went to your Prime too.”

The Ops mech nodded, and a thought occurred to him. “Hey, you free now?”

“Suppose so, since Prowl’s occupied. Why?” The guardsmech turned a querying look at his counterpart, and Jazz shrugged.

“Thought we could take that drive now, I’ve got a spare hour or two.”

“You do? That’s great, thanks!”

“S’alright. Just lead the way.”

Alarms were sounding, and all about them mechs were streaming down corridors, moving purposefully towards their destinations. Bewildered, Hot Shot grabbed one of them as he passed. “What’s going on?”

“Megatron’s being a pain in the behind again. So we gotta go out and swat his.” He blinked at Cliffjumper’s cheeky reply, and the mech waved as he darted out of the rec. room, headed for who knows where.

“Not the most proper of descriptions, but in essence, Cliffjumper is correct. There’s been a Decepticon attack on one of the human energy processing facilities, and we’re heading out to repel it.” Mirage explained as he started for the exit as well. ‘Hide and his team followed, as did the jet twins, ‘til they ran into Ironhide, blocking the doorway.

“And you and yours are gonna stay here. Optimus’s orders.”

“What?! You can’t be serious! Those are Decepticons out there, we have to help!” ‘Hide exclaimed, Jetstorm and Jetfire not far behind in registering their protests. “Yeah, we’re not sparklings, we can fight, can’t we, brother?”

“Got that right, bro. We were made for this!”

The older mech folded his arms, unimpressed. “Youngling, I don’t care if you’ve fought ‘Cons twice your size since you were sparked, orders are orders. Now settle down.”

“These orders suck. We’re not incompetent.” Their Brawn growled, and Ironhide sighed, wishing Rodimus, Ultra Magnus or these mechs’ Jazz were in the room.

“I never said you were. But you’ve not fought alongside us before, nor are you used to working around the humans. Safer for all concerned that you. Stay. Put.”

“We can still help!”

“Oh for the love of-” Ironhide’s comm. crackled to life, and the voice of the Autobot SIC issued from it.

//Ironhide, is there a problem? You’re not out yet.//

//Change of plans. The other world bots don’t want to stay out of the fight. Might have to whup their afts to get them to sit.//

//I’ll let the med bay know. Will you need help carrying them over?//

//Yeah. Thanks, Prowl.//

Not five seconds later another comm. came in. //Ironhide! If you give me more work to do, so help me Primus…//

//Yeah, Ratch’. You’ll turn me into a toaster. I get you.//

//Lemme get a word in. Ironhide, you tell those overclocked glitches to back off or I’ll be helping Ratchet add them to his toaster collection!//

//Yes ma’am.// Ironhide replied, then grinned at the mechs as he started forward, forcing them to move back into the rec. room. “Well, you heard the femme. Gonna listen to her, younglings? Good manners and all that.”

“The Pit with manners. We’re going.” Hot Shot muttered as he and Brawn flanked the rust red mech still slowly walking towards ‘Hide and the jet twins. Ironhide snorted.

“Lemme see. No.”

‘Hide snarled, and put up his armour as the twins ducked behind him to combine into Safeguard. “Try and stop us, nothing gets through my battle plating.”

“Clever trick, but y’see, I don’t need to get through you, just around.” A yellow blur sidestepped Ironhide to leap towards the younger mech, using his immobile form for foot and handholds as he vaulted over and landed feet first into the still combining twins. The pair fell apart abruptly, merging sequence disrupted by the attack. Ironhide leant to one side to get a better view of the clash. “Fire-top first, ‘Bee. Red won’t be happy if he sets the rec. room alight. Inferno’s rolled out already.”

“Got it!”

Jetfire dropped, knocked offline by the unexpected assault and Bumblebee whirled ‘round, smirk on his faceplates as Jetstorm moved into a defensive stance. ‘Hide almost recalled his armour so he could move to help his team mate, but then halted in mid shift, glancing nervously in Ironhide’s direction. The Autobot weapons master grinned knowingly at him. “That’s right, the moment your shields drop, I’m gonna be on you like stink on a ‘Con.”

A cry from behind signalled that Jetstorm had fallen as well. “All done, Ironhide.”

“Hot Shot and Brawn?”

“Already taken care of. I brought help.” Ironhide looked back to see Sentinel, the blue mech with a hand on Hot Shot’s collar struts, expression serious. Brawn was hog tied on the ground with a set of energy chucks, a cyberninja perched atop his chassis. Ultra Magnus was standing with them, a frown on his face. Rodimus was headed towards him, and the young Prime prodded ‘Hide into withdrawing the armour, then jerked his helm in the direction of the command deck.

“Right. On to the control centre. That way we can keep an eye on the hotheads and the battle at the same time.”

I love the fact that G1 Bee kicked the twins' afts in front of TFA Ultra Magnus. Gives UM even more to think about.

Poor flustered G1 Jazz! I'm rooting for you, buddy!

*giggles at G1!Jazz* Public reason indeed. ;P

And I spent the rest of the reading quite confused until I realised it was Hot Shot and not Hot Rod. Do'h! Wonderful chapter!

Rawr! Go Bumblebee! I do sorta respect the TFA mechs for wanting to go help, since in their 'verse the 'Cons totally outclass them.

But, yeah. Orders. Listen to them. XD Or Ironhide's all over your aft. And then TFA-Jazz sits on you.
