At the Prom..

airofsuperiority:

"Glad we’re on the same page then. No use fretting over it more than we do. If I’m to be completely frank, just the fact we can talk about this straight faced is something I like about you." And with that, Air opened one side of his jacket to reveal a small flask. He pours a little of it into his own cup.

"…I was bringing this regardless," he points out. "Want some? I don’t intend to lose myself this early, if at all. It’s too lovely tonight. Shame I almost wasn’t going."

And so it looked like Time showed up. He laughed just looking at Flash’s expression. “I could let you two catch up if you’d like. Or you could stay with me, the choice is your’s.”

"I think I’ll stay with you." He holds out his punch, leaning his chin into his hand, smiling at Air. His brother really was handsome, it was nice to see him out and doing things. Perhaps this party was good for the both of them, he hoped he’d see his other brothers soon.

At the Prom..

airofsuperiority:

"Of course I do," he said without hesitance. A sadistic grin stretched all the way across his face. "Even when I’m not bored, it’s fun. I know you hate that little clock. And besides, no one truly knows what the future holds. If we do die, it better be interesting."

For how utterly deadpan his tone was, he know Flash thought about their line as much as he did. “But, honestly, who’s to say we’ll die? Perhaps under new management we’ll secure our future. I’ll go anywhere if it’ll keep our line safe. We need the numbers, but ultimately it’s every man for himself. Surely, you can get behind that notion.”

Conversations of the existential sorts were always a delight.

"Ahh, but that is the point of the future, you can’t pin point it. We could be alive, we could be dead. We could all be terminated by a meteor right now, who’s to say. But you are right, I will keep with my line until the last pulse of my core." He sips at his punch, and looks over at the other robots showing up. Motioning to Time. 

"Looks like the little reject showed up after all, oh well, can’t always get what you want." He puffs vapor into the air above him.

At the Prom..

airofsuperiority:

"You know me. With pleasure," he smirks and grabs from the table. Plant didn’t skimp out on the hor d’oeuvres either.

When asking Flash out he felt absolutely nauseated by his own words—the worst part was that they were completely and utterly sincere. He never liked to wax poetic with people, even those he was exceptionally fond of.

Flash was one of those people. 

He paid no mind to the E-cig, though he would have joined him if the shorter robot had a second. The punch would do for now. “I must give Plant kudos if I see him again. It really is radiant—I actually love it. He should host every year.”

He jokes, “Do you think you’ll find a better date next year? Perhaps patch things up with that schema of yours?”

Flash reaches over and snags some food, leaning on the table as he smokes. “Bleh, Time can rust.” He says simply, his eyebrows knotted at the sour topic. “And I don’t know about next year, who knows. Maybe we will all be dead by next year, maybe we will be in space. I have no idea.” 

He smirks over at Air. “Trying to push my buttons, are you that bored already? Or do you just like getting a rise out of me?”

At the Prom..

airofsuperiority:

Air approached him the minute his back was turned. ”Not bad. I must give the flower credit,” he said, tactless as always. He was the one to escort Flash to the dance but apparently went off to inspect the place. Those 6th gens were wild cards, he swore. Though the beautiful, almost illustrative scenery impressed even the largest snob. 

"Sorry for making you wait," he offers last minute. "Nothing’s starting soon, so why not take the time to grab food and talk?" Talk, maybe for real. It was a little odd bringing Flash as a date, despite their history. Mostly because Air wasn’t expected the reaction he got out of him.

At least they looked good together—both men cleaned up nicely. As usual, Air stuck with something classic yet stylish. He was never one for gaudy. Unlike a certain tiny “fashionista” who was gabbing by the desserts a little too loudly.

"Thanks for coming, by the way. I wasn’t really expecting it."

The blond turns to look up at the taller robot, smirking as he holds up the bottle, his punch and two flutes he’d snagged. “I got us something to drink, grab some food and we can relax.” He pulls moves past Air, surprised he’d agreed, but Air had said the right things. 

"And you’re welcome." He smiles up at Air, once he’d secured a table he sits down, puts down their drinks and pulls out his E-cig to light it up and take a deep relaxing puff. Vapor rising around his head. "Its beautiful, Plant really did do a good job!"

At the Prom..

Flash stood by the catering table, with its vast expanse of snack foods and tiny sandwiches. His hands in the pockets of his suit, hair smoothed back and feeling like a total fool. He hadn’t spotted his date, and he’d remembered that he’d ditched Quick for Air. But it looked like Quick had ended up going with Elec and he had no idea why that irked him.

He turns and grabbing a cup he fills it with punch, he though punch lightly however because it was only a  matter of time before you could run a vehicle on it or bomb a third world country. It was beautiful, Plant did do an amazing job, he had to admit as looked at the area around him. He had greeted Plant at the entrance, of course, and per the rules Flash was without his time stopper for the night and that didn’t help his edginess one bit. 

Flash turned and pulled a champagne bottle to himself and fills the cup up the rest of the way with it. Time to get shit faced, he takes the bottle with him and walks off to find Air, Elec or Quick.

Shadow does not know how to fix a computer

ninja-babysitter:

'Soft spot…?' “He is as much my brother as any of the other third generation Robot Masters…” Shadow started, raising back up to his full height. “Though our makers may differ, my feelings remain the same.” The ninja robot was looking a little nostalgic as he found a comfortable place to sit, now watching curiously as Flash continued working his magic. He knew he'd come to the right man-machine!

"So, he will have to carry a device on him?" Somehow it didn’t seem ideal, though the last thing Shadow wanted to do was come off as ungrateful. "If this can be done in time for the weekend, I can gather any additional supplies you might need." As much as he wasn’t fond of the idea of being indebted to Flash Man, OR letting Forte know he could get away with just giving him orders whenever he wanted, he really did want to see Blues at the party.

"No need, got everything here. And its small, he can attack it to himself through his chest compartment." He taps his own chest, and pulls over a linksys range extender box, a mini version, pops it open and starts putting the parts inside it. And pulls the table out, holding it up. "Ta da." He tosses it to Shadow. "Have him plug that in, run a software patch and he’ll be as free as a bird." 

Flash smirks at Shadow. “And whatever about the soft spot. Anything else I can do for you?” He asks, eyeing Shadow happily.

Fine.

[This is the part where I ask you to the dance. I shall leave the details up to you. Imagine how sentimental and soft I’m being. That is because I am full of charm and character.]

Satisfied?

No. Seduce me. 

>My hatred for public affection is outweighing my interest for you.

[…]

>No—wait—on second thought…

>Care to hear what I think?

>I would hardly consider this drivel of mine eloquent, but there’s a reason for that. These days all I ever feel is a bitter, lethargic feeling. Even with new management, I’m unsatisfied. However, that’s not the reason. That I’m fine with. I could outline and elaborate every single thing I loathe about about this planet, its galaxies and stars. I would put Harlan Ellison to shame. I openly seek joy in sharing animosity with others. It’s covered in its entirety.

>It’s devotion and affection I couldn’t care less to describe. This is review for you, sure, but please hear me out. My chest cavity may as well house cobwebs. The worst part—perhaps—is that it doesn’t.

>I’m harsh because I know you can handle it, and that’s… something I just can’t resist about you. It puts a satisfied smile on my face. You’re impossible to win over, and I like that. What? Do you want me to barge to your lab sporting that suit of mine you love so dearly and drag you off? 

>I might as well, because I think you keep yourself away more than I do. And—honestly—it’s a sad, sad display.

>I….ah…

[Flash was stunned. That was the most romantic and thoughtful thing any robot had ever said to him. He was suddenly confused and a little scared. Did Air really mean that? There had to be no way! Right? Not really knowing is what got to him the most. Impossible to win over, when in only a few short paragraphs Air had the DWN in the palm of his hand. Shit.]

>Wow you really aren’t very good at this. Haha, fine I’ll go to the dance with you. Maker you are corny…..wear something formal.
