Someone gave me a writing prompt based on three words: nuclear, empirical, rifle.
So I wrote a fic about Brainstorm inventing the nuclear empirical rifle. It was just too perfect.
This is a Shattered Glass fic, so Evil Autobots / Good Decepticons, but it's more light-hearted than most of my SG stuff. Mostly it's just Brainstorm roping a very put-upon Chromedome into helping him with his invention. But Rewind, Prowl, and Ultra Magnus also get cameos.
Continuity: IDW1 / Shattered Glass
Rating: G / Gen
Characters: Chromedome, Brainstorm, Rewind, Ultra Magnus (minor), Prowl (minor)
Summary: Chromedome was already reluctant to help Brainstorm with his new invention and that was BEFORE he bought two dozen datasticks at a street fair! Can they complete this project without ticking off Ultra Magnus? (No, no they cannot.)
"Let me rephrase," Chromedome said. "What specifically do you need help with?"
"Two things!" Brainstorm scuttled to the end of the lab, returning with blueprints which he unfurled across the table. "First, I need you to make bullets that can read people's minds."
"That's physically impossible."
"Second," Brainstorm brandished a little blue dataslug, "I need you to determine if these are good or evil."
"Good or evil," Brainstorm repeated, like that explained anything.
