Theme for the Speech Hello, I am Optimus Prime, leader of the Autobots. Our War has ravaged across your planet and the galaxy for years, our problems had become your problems. I can never repay or forgive the things that your people had to endure, what Earth had to endure. The war is over now, and the Decepticons have been defeated, finally we shall live in peace...Though there were many brave humans and bots who gave their lives to stop the ravages of war..this is their story. This is a story about brotherhood, grief, happiness, betrayal, it's a long story, but it is one that must be told. Lest we forget and repeat the cycle of hatred that had lead to their very sacrifice. This tale begins on our homeworld, the twilight days of Cybertron...our fall from grace. _______________________________________________________________________ Spoiler: Transformers Hidden In Plain Sight OP 1 Cyterian City, Cybertron Twenty Four Star Cycles in the Past Distant flames and explosions, the sound of sporadic blaster fire filled the audio sensors of any bot that dared to be awake during the night. War had dragged on for centuries across the homeworld of the Transformers, millions had perished under the onslaught and tyranical rule of the Decepticon leader, Megatron, and his band of ruthless Decepticon goonies. Most civilians had escaped and fled to the outerskirts of the planet, while the resistance force, the Autobots attempted to take control of the planet and to overthrow their dictators. The war had constantly fluctuated between both sides, with a stalemate that had gridlocked the planet, causing massive stress to the very core of the planet. It was on the brink of collapse, and resources were critically thin. Optimus Prime knew this, thus a new plan had to be put into place, one that would allow for his men and women to fight another day. With the Decepticon's recent blitzkrieg offensive, many key Autobot hideouts were falling to waist and their teams perishing. Their numbers were dwindling, they needed to get off this planet, to split off and hide across the galaxy. "Sir, a squad of Seekers is inbound, they're arching through the sky," Hound called out as he pointed towards the sky, where four seeker planes soared through the air in search of prey. Optimus made his way towards the small opening that had been blown open from a battle months earlier, with it provided sight that overlooked the decaying hotel that they had taken refuge in. "It appears a battle is on our horizon, keep a look out," the leader called out to the scout before turning to face the many young faces that dotted the hotel floor. "It appears our last stand may be today, I had hoped that we could hold our ground, that we didn't have to leave this planet, but it appears that was not our destiny. It is time to leave this planet and to go into hiding, many of you may never see each other again, but don't worry...this is only the start of our war..we will live again in peace one day. I believe in each and everyone of you, that is why I have a specific job for you all." Optimus paused, as the sound of a loud thud, followed by the sound of countless clanking of feet could be heard outside. "Optimus, there is hundred of decepticons converging onto this area!" Hound yelled as he began to fire his blaster down towards the swarm of cons. "Autobots, roll out!" Optimus yelled as he readied his blaster, taking out two lesser cons with simple two shots. He marched forward, dodging and weaving the attacks as the band of Autobots followed in close behind him. "We must hold this line!" tag: @Minuteman75 @Herrith @TwoSidedHeart @Castellus @Soundflare NOTE: 48 HOUR POSTING LIMIT, CAN MAKE IT 72 HOURS FOR AN EXCEPTION, THANKS AND LET'S HAVE FUN!
