Make art for Day Skawar!

Skywarp had his thrustered heels propped up on the table, rocking his chair back on two legs, half-watching Starscream fiddling around with the focussing array he’d ‘liberated’ from one of Ironhide’s stockpile of weapons. Autobot tech obviously wasn’t precise enough. Wasn’t as if Skywarp was going to argue – the quicker he got his cannons back on his arms, the better.

He glanced down at a little tug on his trailing fingers to find Footloose gazing up at him. “Hello, Trouble,” he greeted, with a lopsided grin, offering his palm. “Done making a mess?”

“Not make mess, make art,” she argued, settling into his hand and letting him lift her up.

“Oh, so that’s what they’re calling it these days, huh?” He gave her a nose-wrinkled look. “Looks like there’s more art on you than there is on your piece of paper.”

“Jas say fun to make painting!” she explained, earnestly, settling into her usual spot in the crook of his elbow.

“Does Jas say it’s fun to make bath as well? Because I’m gonna be shipping you off to the washracks, in a minute, you painty bundle of spares…”

Footloose made bleaugh faces. “No bath,” she complained, surreptitiously trying to wipe dried blue paint off her fingers against his chassis. “Make art for Day,” she explained, handing over the object she was clutching in both hands. It was a biggish piece of card, to the sparkling, although in the Seeker’s large hands it was more like a postcard.

Skywarp grinned in spite of himself. On the left of the page was a carefully painted stick-figure in black and purple, with little blue lines under the stick-Seeker’s feet apparently indicating flight. “I think I recognise that handsome guy on the left.”

Footloose giggled and headbutted his chest. “Is Day!” she explained.

“And these must be your uncles, right?” He pointed a large finger carefully at the two colourful triangles in the bottom of the picture.

“Is Dack and Sta’zim,” she agreed.

“So what’s the yellow thing in the corner? A squashed arachnid?”

“Is sun! And that am clouds.”

“…they have faces, these days?”

“…yes?” She gave him a silly look and put her fingers into her mouth.

“Tch!” He pinged her antennae and made her giggle. “So where’s Ama, eh?”

“Is on ground. Doesn’t like to make fly, silly!”

“Ah, oh course. Silly me.” He glanced down at her. “So where are you, on here?”


“You didn’t forget you, did you, Button?”

She thought for a moment or two before dabbing her fingertip down on his chest. “Am in here. In pilot seat!”

“Good save,” he chuckled, as she butted her small helm up into his cupped palm and rattled a purr. “…just don’t go thinking this’ll get you off having a bath!”

Oh god...it's ADORABLE. XDD You couldn't resist the pull of the transformers stick-figures, could you?

Not that I'm complaining or anything...this is a VERY good thing to read in the morning...since I seem to be twitching for the next chapter of Warped (which I have yet to reply on yet!) like some sort of withdrawl XDD

And just think: somewhere, some Autobot that's watching this is falling over from fried circuits.

Bwahaha. :D

...I have more stick-Seekers (and stick-everyone-elses) to scan in, now. They're breeding. ¬_¬

Yay! I demand more stick transformers! XDDD It's probably bad that something like this amuses me SO MUCH.

Oh well, chalk it up to the dead brainmeats! ;)

So cute! Love the squashed arachnid comment. Obviously Skywarp hasn't seen many children's drawings before.
Dec. 16th, 2008 12:26 am (UTC)
Hehe, I was thinking probably not. ;)

Oh, that helps to wait till the 12th chapter )))

Children make the nest explanations of their art )) Like, "it's not a hat, it's a snake who ate an elephant" %) [Antuan de Sent Exupery (c)]

Yes. Definitely an Autobot or two twitching somewhere... Cuteness overdose!

*is trying to visualise the snake/elephant/hat thing*

I remember finding some of MY old art a while back, and I'd have NO idea what it was supposed to be if not for my written explanation - three blobby triangles, described as "three nute birds" ("three naughty birds"). :\ Eeeenh.

D'awwwwww! So cute, I love Footloose's eyes in the picture and how insistant she was about 'making _art_'.

You might want to tack a spoiler warning on this. It doesn't really give a lot away but you can deduce a few things from it. ;)

I was working on the live-action-film premise a bit for the eyes - made sense that the closer you get to them, the more you start to see the camera workings behind the visual crystals. :)

And I think I shall do that. *nods* *goes to add warning*

*tries again* Grr, it put my reply in the wrong place.

Oh. My. God. This is the cutest thing I've ever read. I just love Skywarp's comment about the faces on the sun and clouds. And I love the picture you drew. D'aaaaaaw! :D Footloose continues to be the most adorable transformer in the universe. :3

*loves on your icon*

*thanks you for the icon love*
