D17 of 30 Day Challenge: 'Jumps in Time'There I am! Right across the street, the little girl in the pigtails. She's me, when I was just a five year old. It feels strange. I adjust the sunglasses on my face as I watch my small self walk with Mom.
Geez. Mom had such dark hair back then! And that was when she still had time to curl it. But, that was before the next four pregnancies and a miscarriage.
I easily slip into the look of being in that time. I strut down the sidewalk as if it were a Fashion Week runway. Men and teenage boys always saved a glance for me as I pass them by. One blue-eyed blonde that was with his girlfriend winked at my playfully.
Tsh. What a punk.
As soon as I make a bend around the block, I feel a tugging sensation. It starts at the base of my neck and zips down to my toes. I'm time jumping again, and it's going to happen soon.
Oh well. It's fun!
Brother My Brother: Too Close to Realize ItA/N: And here folks, is what you've been waiting for! *drum roll and curtain rises*
Autobot Team Eta-5, a solar cycle out from Iacon . . .
"Hey Jetstorm, you ok?" asked one of the mechs in front of the platoon. To be honest, the blue jet had staggered behind the group of seven for quite a while. Eta-5 was the team that headed toward Fortress Maximus. Their mission was to to refuel on supplies and to help bodyguard very small younglings that had to get out of Iacon.
Jetstorm coughed and shook his helm. "Not me minding."
"Kid, are you serious? You look like you're about to pass out!" the youngling next to him said. The mech soon took Jetstorm's arm and wrapped it around his own shoulders to help support the nauseated mech.
"Hey, did you drink any energon that had a greenish or blueish color to it?" the leader asked.
"Run into rusty walls or equipment? Or even accidentally cut yourself on one of the two?"
D16 of 30 Day Challenge: 'Dressed to the Nines'Suit and Tie
The new couple earned eyes from everyone in the room. The girl was dressed in a backless, burgundy dress. There was a slit on the bottom of the hem. The opening snaked up to her upper thigh. Nearly all the male attendees' eyes were to her legs. Those legs seemed to go on and on and on . . .
Her partner dressed sharply in a suit and tie. All black and white, with gold cuff-links. Not surprisingly, he had his eyes plastered to the woman that he linked arms with.
After all, he wouldn't want to offend his fiancée, now would he?
D15 of 30 Day Challenge: 'The Little Children'It was in the mall where they had the interesting floor. When you stepped on it, you could move the little cartoons that a ceiling projector played into the floor.
Two little girls marveled at the sight. They played and played and played for nearly an hour. Their mom watched, a small smile on her face.
RoommatesA/N: This thought first came to me after seeing Bee talk.
'What if his beeps and boop sounds were hereditary?' Well, here's my two-cents on this, plot bunny! Set in an extreme AU, where the war never happened and Bee and Smokescreen were roommates going to the same school.
And if Bumblebee's Carrier wore a flower pot on her helm. But instead of a flower, it was a tiny shard of crystal.
Yeah, I'm weird let's continue!
"Your Carrier is coming over?" Smokescreen asked. "And you didn't bother to tell me?!"
He helped Bumblebee hurriedly clean up their small apartment. Since the beginning of finals week, their room had gone from very neat to very, very, very filthy. Scattered on the floor were empty, disposable cubes of take-out energon and leftover energon snacks that made the room smell awful. So awful in fact, Smokescreen would bet his paint that a Scraplet would die inhaling the scent.
D13 of 30 Day Challenge: 'I Wish You Could See'I thought I saw him again. I blink, and then I curse myself for believing it to be so.
I still remember the date. 08/08/11. That was the day you passed on, Ông Ngoại. Only six more days before it is two years. Two years.
I don't know. Maybe it's because I wish you were still here, or is it because my memory of you is so strong? Even going to your house and seeing your photo on the mantel, I always say, "Hi," or the customary greeting in Vietnamese. I'd put it down here, but I don't want to make a mistake . . .
It's just . . . I wish you could see how much the family has grown. One came a little after Christmas in 2012; Tam (my cousin) is expecting a baby in October, and Jacklyn is heading into second grade. And Lyllian is starting high school soon too. And I'm becoming a junior.
I got the paperwork earlier today. It's in a manila folder and I am going through it. Ugh.
And if I do a head-desk, you'd scold me and say, "You have to do it, no matter what." And
Gift to beautyamber12This would be their last fly around before Jetfire would have to go off planet for his training session. From there, he wouldn't be back for several months.
"See? We fine!" Jetfire said. He flew backwards to face the femme. He couldn't help but be proud of her. Weeks and months he and his brother had been helping her learn to fly. Now, she was zooming and flipping about with him.
"Race you!" she challenged. Before Jetfire could ask where to, Skyfire zipped right past him.
"Waiting for me!" Jetfire put his thrusters to 80% output and caught up with her. Skyfire laughed giddily, and she dived downward. Thrown off by the change of direction, Jetfire nearly collided into a building nearby. Luckily, the Elite Guardsmech managed to right himself. He followed the sound of Sky's laughter.
"Come and catch me!" the blue Wrecker challenged. She disappeared behind several buildings and Jetfire lost her. Stumped, the youngling planted his servos onto his hips. He wondered where she could have gone.

"Give it up Randy," his sister sighed. Randy continued to fiddle with the TV controls. It was as if pressing them all could will it to come online. "There's a few blown transformers out there. Give it a rest. The power will come back on soon enough."
"What am I supposed to do then, Marlene? Ya know, to wait it out?" Randy grumbled. He plopped himself next to his older sister.
"You're not going to get my iPad," his black-haired sister scowled.
"Aw, c'mon! Please! I am BORED," Randy pleaded.
"No! After you dropped it last time and it shattered the screen?" Marlene glared at him, "And it cost me over half my savings to get it fixed? No thanks! And anyway, it's at three percent of power. You won't be able to do much with Om-Nom before it zaps out itself."
"Why do you think I am obsessed with a little green monster that eats candy? It's for kids!" He thought another moment and added, "And girls!"
"Really? Explain to me why under 'battery usage', is
