Strange Encounters of the Interdimensional Kind

autobotengineer:

The note’s just… well, the Perceptor from my universe is missing. I was hoping it was him in this lab, however he got here, but it’s pretty obvious that you’re not him. ..Not that that’s a problem! Just, well. You can read it if you want, I guess. 

*momentarily forgetting that the device is the reason he’s able to currently communicate with Perceptor, he waves it around a bit as he shows it to Perceptor; the vortex destabilizes for an astrosecond, and he remembers and continues a bit sheepishly* Perceptor, you know explosions are caused by buildups of energy or pressure. This is by design a controlled release, so it should be perfectly safe. It’s just not particularly efficient, currently.

I don’t suppose you’ve got any idea why these vortices are suddenly appearing, do you? They seem to be forming more often in places with higher levels of ambient energy, but that’s all I’ve got so far. I’m not the researcher you are. And yeah, I am on Earth. This vortex seems to appear pretty regularly; is there anything in particular you’d like me to calibrate Teletraan 1’s sensors to look for?

I see… I wonder where I— er, where he has gone. Fallen through a dimensional tear, no doubt, or gone off to investigate. He would have been me, eventually, but I’m afraid our realities have already splintered off from one another. The universe dislikes paradoxes.

*wry smile* Wheeljack, if I had to place my faith in any sentient being to cause a seemingly harmless device to become a devastating timebomb, it would be none other than yourself. I do, however, commend you on your efforts in creating a stabilizer. I have no doubts whatsoever that you’ll be able to improve upon it.

Perhaps my analyses may aid you; hold a moment and I shall upload my current work. *grabs a nearby datapad and turns back towards the computer* No, the cause of the fractures eludes me thus far. As for Teletraan 1, I’ll include all that I know about the signal and trans-dimensional message; perhaps you can identify the source. Ah, there. *passes the fully-loaded datapad to the engineer*

It’s… it’s good to be working with you again, Wheeljack. I’ve missed it.

ONCE UPON A TIME, THE UNIVERSE WAS REALLY WEIRD

Today, looking out across a seemingly boundless cosmos filled with an unimaginable variety of exotic objects, it’s easy to forget that the Universe we currently admire is the product of a violent event that occurred 13.75 billion years ago.

As we know, the leading theory for universal birth is the Big Bang, where everything came from nothing, in a single energetic burst of inexplicable creation. So, if we turn back the clock back 13.75 billion years, what would we see?

Mm, yes, everything is fine. You just surprised me! I was in the middle of, ah, this. *motions towards the computer* I much appreciate the probe that you sent, even if it was unintentional.

*knows something is amiss but decides it’s best to wait before questioning this Perceptor* I’m glad it was helpful, Perceptor. When I realized it was your lab, I tried to pass along as much data as I could. I, ah, brought a new set along, too. I suppose you can ignore the note, though. *passes a datapad through the portal* I’d appreciate it if you could take a look over the data. I’m not sure about the efficacy of this device yet, to be perfectly honest. This particular iteration emits a complementary energy pattern in real time. *glances at Perceptor; something still seems odd, but he’s not sure what it is*

Have you discovered anything useful?

*carefully takes the datapad* I’d be more than obliged to evaluate your findings! The data you’ve already given me has increased my productivity exponentially. *glances down at it* May I inquire as to the nature of this note that I am to ignore? Ahaha, and as long as your device doesn’t self-detonate, I’m sure it will be perfectly serviceable.

I wish he’d stop looking at me like that. Does he know? Should I tell him?

I’m much closer to understanding the nature of these wormholes, and I believe I’ve isolated a frequency related to the ominous trans-dimensional message that we all heard. What about yourself? You’re currently situated on Earth, correct? I’m sure that utilizing the Ark and Teletraan 1 has been useful.

Wheeljack was stuck. He was well and truly stuck.

Perceptor’s analysis of the information that Wheeljack’s probe had gathered had been going fairly well.

………..

“H…” His vocalizer fizzled out. “Hello, Wheeljack. Fancy meeting you here.” He smiled weakly.

*Wheeljack’s optics, which had brightened at the sight of his missing friend, now dim slightly at the odd look on Perceptor’s face, and Wheeljack looks confused*

Perceptor? Is everything okay?

Mm, yes, everything is fine. You just surprised me! I was in the middle of, ah, this. *motions towards the computer* I much appreciate the probe that you sent, even if it was unintentional.

@Anonymous "HOT nerd! Wanna have you analyze me ANYTIME"

While my attractiveness is debatable, I’m not sure I fully understand your desire to be analyzed. Is there something wrong?

@Anonymous "NEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEERD"

Nerd? A pejorative term, to be sure, but I don’t find my intelligence to be a source of shame. Should I?
