[Starscream was beyond livid. He'd taken all that time searching out the well, stepping out into broad daylight, and gathering that ink. And what is his payoff? Well...it's ink. While most would see this as obvious, Starscream is less than pleased.]
"Just...ink? But that defies my entire theory!"
Well, it was ink. Soundwave had attempted to relay as much but... well, Starscream was Starscream. And the whole thing had been a huge waste of time. Now, granted, they wouldn't have known it was a huge waste of time unless they actually WENT and wasted their time... But the fact of the matter still stood that his commanding officer had previously seen fit to insinuate that he was an idiot AND he jammed his face in a handful of the stuff.
So Soundwave was somewhat less then understanding right now. If anything, the 'Con was slightly amused, head cocked, shoulders relaxed.]
"--Defies my--theory!" [He called it, you remember.]
"I'm not DEAF, Soundwave! I assure you my audio output is working just fine. And I can hear my own thoughts, thank you very much."
[His optics narrow at the Con, slightly peeved that Soundwave is silently gloating about all this. And it shows it in his wings, as they shiver once again, only this time in anger. Not only was he frustrated that the ink was a red herring, but Soundwave's little bragging tone wasn't helping.
Soundwave would be gloating a lot less if he hadn't been so offended before. Starscream's intensified glare was replied to with a dip of his head, shoulders gently rising a touch. Someone was far too amused by this for his own damn good. No, he wasn't going to stop mocking Starscream. He'd promised not to let you live it down, Starscream.]
"Don't give me that. I want you to delete our test data immediately! No one shall know this took place. And stop giving me that smug look!"
[You know, the one where Soundwave raises his shoulders and lowers his head. That one.]
[Yeah everyone knows that look. Everyone named Starscream. To anyone else though, it might appear like the jet is screaming about nothing.
The reply was the test data scrolling lazily across the screen. No way. He's saving this. This is his forever. Proof and evidence as to why you don't grab him.]
--personal gain for our CAUSE-- [You know. For future reference.]
[For a split second, Starscream thought about striking Soundwave. However, his common sense kicked in and he kept his arm right where it belonged. No, he did not want to piss this guy off EVER. He just groans and turns his head to the side in a small pout.]
[Yep. That's what he thought. He was going to keep pushing it too, enjoying this victory far too much after the preivious invasion of his personal space and insult to his intelligence. There was a gentle ping... and the radar was up and going again. No, still has that data. He's gonna go scan for Megatron now, have fun sulking in here, Screamy.]
[That ping...it was more than annoying. Mainly because he's been hearing it on loop for eons. And much like the song that never ends...well it gets on your nerves.]
"Soundwave! Get back here! I'm not through with you yet! Your pointless scanning for Lord Megatron can wait."
[[ooc:Anyone who tags will be answered by either Starscream or Soundwave! Starscream doesn't know the feed is going... Soundwave... well that's a secret~]]
