Maverick looked over when Indelible had made his presences known. "Oh slag me... Look Valkyrie, thats Indelible. One of Optimus Prime's top scientists. He answers only to the Prime and no one else. What the frak is he doing here?" Whispered Maverick so that only Valkyrie could hear him.
As the fighting came to a end, even from those who were not Autobots, Springer made his way over to Indelible. "Commander Indelible, I think you got it wrong here. This isn't what it looks like. These Raiders are a drunk bunch of 2nd class soldiers who decided to take out their failure on us, the bar and anyone else near by. We all know who threw the first punch right?"
As Springer said this, the Wreckers pointed at Powerplay and so did a couple of the bartenders. Powerplay remained calm, crossed his arms across his chest and answered with a matter of frankly tone of "Yeah thats right. I threw the first punch."
Springer then turned back to Indelible. "And there you have it. if they had been watching their fuel intake then none of this would of happened."
Valkyrie responded to Maverick's question about not defending herself, as she crawled off of him, then helped him up too.
"Because that is not who we are..." she said... trying to make a reference to how the Decepticons did things...
Then the tall Autobot walked in, who was known as Indellible, thanks to Maverick.
"Thank you... as far as why he's here... Primus only knows..." she responded in an equally quiet fashion.
She listened to what was said, waiting for her turn to speak...
But then there was Springer's blatant denial of what actually happenned...
"Not without provocation... Sir..." Vaklyrie said defensively, right after Retroblazer's admittance of what he had done.
~And if you had been watching your vocal processor... none of this would have happened...~ she thought, as she glared at Springer...
She crossed her arms...
"Most of what I say will be denied by The Wreckers' and or their Second-In-Command Springer, I'm sure... But I can tell you exactly what heppenned... Nor will I deny my part in this... Sir..." she said turning towards Indellible, although she did shoot a side glance at Springer on the denial part....
~Introduce yourself... Right...~ she thought, very quickly...
"Callsign: Valkyrie, Raider Nine... Reconnaissance..." she said, with a nod, as a brief introduction.
Indelible approached Springer, nice and close, until he was face to face with the mech. "Save it Springer! I don't care who's to blame!", spat the Autobot, "You know I've a lot of respect for you, and the wreckers, but you're people know better that's the point! As for you lot...", he continued as he turned his head to look at Powerplay, "Because you're so arrogant to perfectly accept blame, all of you can report yourselves to Optimus Prime! I'm sure the Cybertron close-circuit security system will have no problem helping me identify each and every one of you if you think about not reporting in!"
He wasn't one to let his temper get the better of him, he was after all a no-nonsense kind of guy, it happens when you serve the great Optimus Prime. However, he had already seen the effects of war and the uses of Dark Energon, particularly on his home town. Destroyed. The very reason why he took up science in the first place.
"I suggest, Springer", continued Indelible as he turned back to face the bot, "You and you're wreckers go someplace else. Now." he warned sternly. "And leave me to deal with these officers, who will be strictly punished!"

Springer met Indelible's optics with his own cold stare. Then a second later he remarked. "Your some cold slag for a scientist."
Springer then signaled to the rest of the Wreckers that it was time to leave. The combat team gathered themselves together and traded a few looks at the Raiders, but none dared to look in Indelible direction.
With the Wreckers gone, the bar began to get it's self back together. The bartenders began to clean up and serve drinks and the music began to play again as gamblers returned to their games.
Powerplay stood waiting to see what Indelible was going to do next. He was ready to answer for what ever he was responsible for and hoped that he would take the heat for the rest of the team, since he started the fight.
But before Indelible walked over to him, someone else addressed Powerplay. "Do not worry. Optimus Prime will not hear of this altercation. At least not from us."
Powerplay turned around when he heard the voice. "Jetfire?"
Maverick, who was confused at what to say next to Valkyrie, looked over at Powerplay when Jetfire made his presence known. "Another scientist? Maccadam is really losing it's touch as a local slag hole if all these science-bots are becoming the clientele."

Retroblazer acknowlegdged Quickshot and started to round up the Raiders, taking extra care whilst calming down the manic Paraphus. "Easy, friend. Everythin's gonna be fine." He yanked Torque off Whirl's back and pulled his comrades into something of a rank, saluting the newly arrived Jetfire. "Retroblazer, callsign Raider 3. Security. Sir, those thugs interrupted our... our 'wake' if you want... for Aqualec, insulting both him and the general quality of bots in our troop. They were spoiling for a fight from the start. I'm not tryin' ta justify us throwing punches..." -He shot Powerplay a look- "But I thought you should know the whys and wherefores. We were simply tryin’ ta defend the honour of our comrade.”[/b]
Quickshot watched with disdain as the Wreckers simply walked out of the bar. To him, throwing insults at a fallen comrade was worse than ever throwing the first punch. He had it coming, and he was satisfied that his Raiders gave them what he deserved. Quickshot walked over to Retroblazer and half saluted Jetfire in the process.
"Jetfire, sir. Can I ask what's going on? This place doesn't seem like your kind of party."

Jetfire looked at Indelible with a worried look and then at Quickshot. "I am in need of your help. I have a problem and Indelible suggested it was the Raiders who could help me. However we can not speak here. Come, lets go outside."
Jeftire motioned for all to follow him to the back of Maccadams. As Powerplay followed he tossed one of the bartenders a bit of shanix. "Sorry about the mess."
Quickshot looked over to Retroblazer for a second and shrugged. This was Max Convoy's area, dealing with higher-ups who had problems needing to be fixed. He was more shocked that the one called Indelible was the one to suggest their services, but then he did have a way of walking the Wreckers out of the door without as little as a snide remark from Springer. Quite a talent, which meant they had to stay on his good side with words as powerful as his. Quickshot looked back as the Raiders
" Me and Retroblazer will handle the dealings. We've got to be careful, these two have the weight behind them to get us decommissioned and turned into scrap metal for manufacturing new null ray rifles, or worse, make us Wheeljack's lab assistants."
Quickshot motioned for them to follow, gave one more look at his fellow ranked Raider, and then turned and followed Jetfire and Indelible out of the bar

As they headed out the back, Indelible uttered lowly to Jetfire, "Are you sure it's a good idea - not letting Optimus know? We can't have good officers getting slaughtered at the bar - no matter the reason.. It's not good for morale. Or the troops.."

Retroblazer put his palms out and shook his head at Quickshot's proposal. "Nuh-uh, Quickshot. I ain't built for that kinda thing. I'll have your back with these two, but I ain't gonna try sayin' nothin' clever. Ain't my strong point, like you. " He smiled inwardly as he walked with Quickshot. "Yaknow... for someone who dosen't like to fight, you're not bad, Quickshot!"

Jetfire looked at Indelible with an uneasy expression. "Its not so much in not telling Optimus Prime. I trust him not to talk, but I am not so sure that I can trust other Autobots. Not many like the fact that I have a past, not even some of my fellow Aerialbots. And if helping to bring Trypticon down doesn't convince anyone that Autobot fuel flows through my compressor, then what can I do? Now your right, it does seem that now we should trust Optimus considering the Raiders just got into a fight with the Wreckers, and holding that information could lead us into more trouble. But considering the dilemma I've been dealt with, I have no choice but to show others that on my own free will, I can be trusted."
Jetfire looked away. "Perhaps I am selfish, I have already asked to much form you and I know you doubt many, including me. But I have to prove that I can be trusted. If not for me, then for the cause. My skills and efforts are no good to Cybertorn if I can't be allowed to act to my full potential. I may never escape my past, but I have to try. And now that the Raiders are facing as much trouble as I am potentially, then maybe we need to trust them, the same as I am asking that others trust me."
As Indelible and Jetfire spoke, the Raiders waited for the two Autobots to join them. "They're sure taking their time, if they expect us to do something for them and trust them they what ever they have to say to us they should be saying in front of us, right?"
"Put a cork in your manifold already Maverick." Began Powerplay. "Considering they just pulled our tailpipes out of the trash compactor then I think we can show a little bit of patiences."
Powerplay, in a rare moment, Powerplay addressed the rest of the group. "I'm sorry but I ain't sorry for what I did. But just to let you bots know, I appreciate what you did. You all had my back when I decked Springer. And if you didn't, well that would be prime as well. No body fights my fights. Just wish I could of gotten in one more good punch. So thanks gang, I mean it."

Quiuckshot patted Powerplay's wrist
"Don't worry about it. Springer had it coming to him, and I'm glad we showed them they can't just walk over us. Not that Max might approve, or Optimus Prime, but sometimes punks need to be showed they are punks."
Quickshot looked over to Maverick
"Just be glad they're not turning us in to the higher ups. Max and us are in deep enough as it is. Jetfire, and this Indelible, have close string with Optimus Prime. We should be glad they are keeping quite. Right now only Springer is a loose end, but he thinks Indelible is personally taking us to Optimus as we speak."
The chain of events so far had been most unexpected...
Springer and the Wreckers acutally got the hint to bug-out, but not without being told the Raiders would be dealt with...
And the Raiders were now apparently to go on some covert mission with or for Indellible and/or Jetfire...
~Still though... if Springer does run to Commander Prime... which version of the story is he going to believe...~ she thought... She had faith that the truth would be believed... but had her doubts...
"I wish I would have decked him... versus trying to talk him out..." she said, in agreement that Springer deserved it...
She crosseed her arms again.
"But instead of taking the hint, he continued running his vocal processor... I may have gone a bit far on my end... but I have lost any and all respect for the Wreckers after what happened..." she continued, trailing off...
She looked over to Indellible and Jetfire, then back to the team...
"If going up against the Wreckers like that get us assignment though... maybe we need to do it more often..." she said jokingly, trying to lighten the mood.
"I do have alot of respect for Jetfire though... So I will wait to hear what he has to say..." she added.
