The tiny brightly colored rubber balls just kept pouring out of his quarters and flooding their bouncing and rolling way down the hall.  Soundwave stood and stared.  Ravage, having been standing right in front of the door when it opened was now standing as stoically as a statue as the flood raced over his smaller body.  That however did not mean he wasn’t very upset at his brothers.

 

As the flood came to a stop, Soundwave looked around.  Nothing reflected outwardly of what he was feeling, but Ravage knew.  ::They’re at it again Boss::

 

::Expected::

 

::But we didn’t even make 2 months this time::  And it was true, Ravage realized.  Between Soundwave keeping a tight rein on Rumble and Frenzy; and himself, Laserbeak and Buzzsaw keeping optics on the troublesome seekers, the Nemesis had enjoyed a six week stretch of peace.  Well as much peace as was ever seen onboard the Nemesis anyway.  But that was still a good two weeks short of 2 months.  Ravage realized he could happily function with the main pranksters of the unit on punishment detail or under strict surveillance, and wished it could be permanent.

 

::Also expected::  Soundwave’s thought interrupted Ravages musings.

 

::Well this time, in addition to the main cargo bay and brig, I hope they have to clean all the cargo bays, plus Officer and Crew Quarter halls with those human toothbrushes.  Then they’ll be too busy to continue this.  And I think all of them need to do the cleaning.  Not just Rumble and Frenzy.  It’s obvious that patrol duty to the point of stasis lock did nothing to curb Skywarp:: And the hopeful tone was clearly present in Ravage’s mental voice.

 

::Nothing curbs Skywarp or your Brothers.::

 

::Well could you offer Megatron the suggestion?:: and Ravages tone was hopeful.

 

::Not my decision.::

 

Ravage watched as Soundwave tapped the button on his shoulder.  “Rumble, Frenzy eject.”

 

 And with that the twin casseticons leaped from Soundwave's chest compartment, transforming as they came to land in the center of the hallway.  It wasn’t anything close to graceful though.  For as Rumble and Frenzy’s feet touched the rubber ball strewn floor they started a balancing dance that was ultimately doomed to fail.  Ravage knew it would; it was just a matter of seconds.  Sure enough amongst the cussing and flailing they landed hard on their afts.

 

“What the Slag.” Was Frenzy’s final comment as he and Rumble sat on the floor glaring up at Soundwave.

Ravage growled at the pair. ::take a look you to.  Your stupid little prank has been returned.  Our quarters are unusable.::

Rumble glanced at Ravage.  “What the slag are you talking about Ravage.  We’ve never seen these things before.”

::Don’t bother, I don’t want to hear it.  You can give the story to Soundwave::

“Rumble Frenzy Assignment: clean up mess.”

“It’s not ours.  We’ve never seen these things before.”

“Your Pranks: your mess.”

“It’s not our prank and it’s not our mess.  We’ve been good.”

“Assignment:  clean up.  Punishment to Follow.  Ravage.  Observe.

Soundwave turned and headed off down the hall

Ravage watched Soundwave leave, then turned back with a growl to Rumble and Frenzy.

“Come on Ravage, you know we didn’t start this.  Soundwave has had us under lock and key for the past 6 weeks.  When have we had time to prank anyone?”

::Do you really expect me to believe that someone decided to toss Soundwave a prank?  The only reason Skywarp pranks us is because Soundwave is to tolerant of you two and your pranks, even when we all pay the price.  And you two are as full of pranks as that stupid seeker.::”

“Well, since we all agree on who left these things for us, why can’t he clean them up? asked Rumble.

::Because you are just as responsible for this as he is.  Now start cleaning, before Megatron comes by, Soundwave will only be able to delay him for so long.

Frenzy made an angry swipe at the balls on the floor next to him, sending them at Ravage.  That seeker is not going to get away with this.

*giggles* Poor poor Ravage... and the mental image of Frenzy and Rumble falling over the balls is hilarious!

I am glad someone else could also picture it, because I was sure having trouble trying to convey what I was seeing. So I went with the less is better method. Seems like you got it though.

Thank you for reading and commenting.
