A large military base that was constructed for the Transformer use. It's right on the border of the United States of America and Canada and its exact position is unknown to the human race, yet signs of human existence are found here and there. It's meant for a place for Transformers to come and practice or hang out, and maybe even to use as a base itself and to hold actual operations. Unfortunately, it hasn't quite reached that stage yet.
It's quite large in size, huge actually, able to fit a large amount of mechs at once. The ceilings stretch tall and the rooms stretch wide. With plenty of places to sleep, get repaired, train, and get together. It has many rooms and places as other bases, such as:
- A common Room - - Crew Quarters - - Shops / Laboratories / Workshops – - Navigation Room - - Hangers - -Armoury- -Combat Training Areas- -Command Centre- -Sick Bay / Maintenance Bay - - Air Strip - - Roads / Vehicle Approach - - Water Approach (Lakes, rivers, and an entrance for submarines)

It was pretty quiet. It usually is, but the TIDADC members didn’t really mind. It was pretty difficult for them to keep in close contact with the others and be home in Canada at the same time until the recent discovery of this base. Ever since then, Hercules, Plates, Rovino, Rovina, and Chipper have made it home.
The five of them were in Hanger 16, one of the largest, and also one of the hangers closest to the runway. It was pretty dark, with sunlight filtering threw small windows and slots in the door. Hercules was stretched against the northern wall, one leg bent at the knee and leaning against the wall, while the other one was stretched out. One arm was bent and the hand lying across his stomach, and the other was lying beside him. His back had sunken down to a comfortable position, so that only the top part of his back and shoulders touched the wall. Despite his size, Hercules never found it difficult to move around. The base was large enough for him, which was absolutely perfect. They obviously had large bots in mind in the construction of this place. Rovino had his back to the wall, legs stretched out in front of him with Rovina curled up next to him with her head in his lap, against the back wall while Plates was laying down on his back on the other side perfectly straight. All were asleep. Chipper, on the other hand, was sneaking up on Hercules, his little white feet barely making a sound on the smooth concrete floor. He crept forward before jumping up onto his best friend but not making it up all the way so that he had to grab onto Hercules so he wouldn’t slip back off. Arms strait and stretched out in front of him, he glanced over at Hercules and grinned, optics curved and shining brightly in pleasure as Hercules jolted awake.
”Hhh? What?” Olive green optics hardened and focused on Chipper’s bright face. ”Huh? Chipper? What ‘ave you been up to? What’s going on?”
Chipper giggled. “I’m bored, and your snoring was getting really annoying.”
Hercules scowled and sat up, picking Chipper up with one hand as he did and setting him carefully down next to him. “I do not snore.” His scowl turned into a smile. “So, what do you want?”
Chipper giggled again. “I want you guys to come outside with me!” He said, excitement making his light blue optics brighten up to a florescent light blue. ”Ppppplease Hercules! P-p-p-p-p-ppplease!!!!!!!”
Hercules sighed and rubbed his temples. “Gee I dunno Chipper...”
Hercules smiled. “I was only kidding. Let’s go... but wake the others, eh?” He shouted after Chipper as he ran up to Rovino and Rovina and tackled them.
After all five bots were assembled at the hanger door, Hercules slid open the gate and winced at the bright light. It was a truly beautiful day. The sun was shinning bright yellow, and a cloudless blue sky stretched on forever. The air was warm and a breeze rustled the leaves on the ground outside. Hercules’ optics brightened. “Maybe we’ll actually have company today! Eh, guys?”
The other chuckled and laughed their agreement. It was usually pretty quiet here, and visitors were rare.

Cutting through Canadian airspace, a lone jet streaked across the sky. It was in bad shape, obviously straining just to keep itself up. Best bet is to... Make it to the base on the border and alert TIDAC... If I can make it, that is... The engine stalled. Half a mile away from The North American Base, SHIELD operative Windtunnel tumbled through the sky... Impact. Tremor. Explosion. And then... Nothing.

Hercules saw it, well actually Chipper saw it, shrieking with a stretched finger in the direction of a small explosion and a crash. All five bots were outside in an instant with wide optics, all looking at Hercules.
The large plane looked over his companions and in a firm voice gave out commands while pointing to each bot. "Plates prepare the sick bay. Rovino and Rovina scout the area around the fallen craft for Decepticons or enemy warfare. Chipper, you're with me. TIDADC let's get to it!"
Plates ran of inside, while Rovinoa nd Rovina transformed at exactly the same time while jumping in the air and streaking off into the sky side by side. Hercules transformed himself, the back hatch lowering for Chipper to run in and closed before taking off.
"Chipper... I want you to meet our fellow mech. I expect you to be on the ground before I even get close? Is that clear?" After hearing the small bot reply the back hatch opened. "Ready? GO!"
Chipper jumped out and transformed into his glider mode and dropped towards the ground as fast as he could. The ground approached quickly and he transformed, landing on the sand with a soft phoosh. Running forwards, he slid to a stop next to Windtunnel. Moments later Hercules was towering over htem both. "Chipper get Rovino and Rovina here. We're gonna have to take 'im back to base." He trasformed, hatch open while Rovino and Rovina landed at the same time and lifted Windtunnel up gently and placed him inside. Chipper followed and the hatch closed as Hercules took off, Rovina and Rovino in close persuit.
Plates shuffled uneasily as Hercules brought in the fallen mech at set him down on a table. Luckily though, Plates had somewhat of a first aid training, plus he did all their repairs and check ups. After a while, when Plates had finished most of the repiars he attached a nerual stabaliser into his arm to bring him around.
Hercules, who had silently been watching from the side of the room, red optic band dark maroon in worry, he leaned forward. "He'll be alright, eh?"
Plates glanced up at his leader before tkaing an ever so small step backwards. "We'll soon find out." He said very quietly.
On the outside of the base, 5 of the six Constructibots were laying a new roadway from the base outward to beyond. As usual Spanners was inside helping with the engineering side of things, much happier to be there than outisde laying a silly road.
Outside the five Autobots were distracted by the great streak across the sky.
"A little to the left! LEFT! There's meant to be a curve in this road!"
- "My plans are perfect! It's Spanners trench work from yesterday that is wonky!"
- "Hey I just lay the foundations, Slammer is the one who has to flatten it out!"
"Wow, did you see that?", gasped Slammer, looking to the skies.
"Yeah so? What about it", moaned Geargrinder, "There's nothing we can do about it!"

Windtunnell groggily opened his optics. Surveying his surroundings, he tried to make sense of the situation. He failed. His vision was so blurred that he could barely make out the outlines of the bots surrounding him. Struggling to hold on to consciousness, he reached for a knife. "Who's... there...?"
Post by Thunderclap on Nov 9, 2008 22:25:36 GMT -5
Hercules leaned forward his optic band bright red with happiness to see that the mech was alive. "O?! 'E LIVES!" He laughs, stepping away from the wall and to Windtunnell's side. He put a hand up to the side of his head and pushed a button, calling Rovino over commlink.
"Rovino... You wanna fly on over and search the surrounding area for Decepticons or anything that's out of the ordinary? Make sure to call if things get outa hand or you find something interesting, eh?"
Hercules then turned his attention to Windtunell. He looked down at the mech, optic band turning a dark shade of maroon in worry, yet neutral. "You are in the sick bay of the North American Base and in good hands of the TIDADC, bud." He paused for a moment to let that sink in. "I'm Hercules, and Plates is standing by your feet."
Rovino got the comm and he signaled his sister before turning a sharp right and towards the Construtibots. Both jets fly side by side, wing tips almost touching and they shot off in the direction that the mech had fallen. Chipper on the other hand was out and about. Hercules had told him to stay out of the way and out of trouble. So, the little mech went to go find somthing interesting to do. He noticed the Constructibots and ran over, making sure to stay clear out of the way. Light blue optics wide he watched them work.
"Whoa... what are you guys doing?" He paused, before adding. "Urm... you guys don't mind me watching do you? Hercules and Plates are trying to help the one guy who fell from the sky and Rovino and Rovina are who knows where! And Hercules told me to stay out of the way so I came to find something to do and saw you guys so is it okay if I stay? So long as I'm outa the way?" He said outloud, to no one in particular. Even if the bots didn't reconize him, atleast he wouldn't get in trouble for hanging around. He could at least say he said something.

"Good... I... Made it... Me and my SHIELD comrades... were escorting... Emirate..." Windtunnel coudn't keep it up. He passed out.
Three miles from The North American Base... "Emirate sir, get behind me." Padlock stood firm, sledgehammer held in a defensive stance. A thin metal cord wrapped around his ankle, pulling him into the darkness. "PADLOCK!!!" Emirate Deadlock ran for his life...

Hercules frowned. "Hold it lad. Take a deep breath. I've sent Rovino and Rovina to take a check around... if that makes ya feel better. Now what is going on?" His optic band darkened. To late. This wasn't good. "Plates... keep working on him. find out any information you can then call me. i'm going to help Rovino and Rovina." And with that he ran out of the sickbay, making sure to duck his head as he left. Plates got back to work repairing.
Rovino and Rovina shot towards the area where they had found Windtunnel. They scanned the area below and spoted Emirate Deadlock. Optics wide and curious they flew down and transformed, landing at the same time side by side a little ways infront of the politition. "Emirate Deadlock? What are you - " " - Doing out here? What is - " " - going on?"
The two copied twins said, finishing one another's sentences.

Regaining his posture, Emirate Deadlock threw a smart salute. "I recognize you from HQ archives. Rovino and Rovina, isn't it? TIDADC? If you would be so kind and to take me to your base so that I might talk to your commander, Hercules..."
Post by Thunderclap on Nov 11, 2008 12:35:01 GMT -5
Rovino and Rovina nodded. "Yes sir." They saluted. "Follow us!" They both turned on their heels and transformed with a jump, rocketing upwards with powerful thrusters. The circled around and hoverd above.
++COMM++ "We'll cover you from above!"
Rovino spoke to Emirate, turning ever so slightly towards base. Then he called Hercules.
"Hercules. This is Rovino. Stay where you are we're coming back with company. We'll meet you on the landing strip."

Emirate Deadlock transformed, following the two jets as best he could. Normally he wouldn't trust two bots he'd just met in the woods, but he's been on Cybertron at the Fire Dome just a couple of days back, looking at this two's case study with a Mech named Blindspot.
Windtunnell jolted sharply back to reality. He was delirious, raving and shouting. "SPIDERS!!! DREADNOUGHT!!! HELP!!! SPIDERS!!!"

Hercules was waiting at the end of the runway, close to the building he had jsut come out of. He wasn't happy. He hadn't expected Rovino and Rovina to find out something so quickly... He hadn't even gotten a chance to speak with the fallen mech. He folded his arms across his chest impatiently. Now they were making him wait here for them to come back. He frowned and searched the skies for his friends.
Rovina and Rovino weren't to far from base, so they both knew they could make it back within minutes. The maintained a constant, steady speed right above Emirate Deadlock, making sure they could see him at all times plus what's going on around them.
Plates jumped at the sudden movement from Windtunnell. He was at the mech's side almost instantly, and laid a hand on his shoulder. "Whoa... steady! You shouldn't make any sudden movements." He spoke in a clam, quiet tone. Spiders? Dreadnought? Help! Plates' optics widened. He's recalling what happened! "Calm down and you can tell us what happened in a few minutes. No need to panic... just relax."
Post by Thunderclap on Nov 13, 2008 18:18:23 GMT -5
Plates was surprised he stretched an arm forward calmly as Windtunell striked towards him and caught it. He grabbed tight and didn't let go. "WHOA! Whatch it! It's Plates! There is no spiders here! You're at The North American Base with TIDADC!!!" He yelled softly, being as loud as he could and trying to calm down the mech.
Rovino and Rovina broke over the trees and approached the landing strip. The flew down, hovering above the runway before transforming and jumping to a hault their movements at the exact same time. They ran forward and stopped in front of Hercules. They saluted and stood at attention, ready.
Hercules raised a brow at his commerades, optic band brightening slightly at their approach. It had always amased him how much the two looked a like and how the moved together, as one. He half smiled and left them at attention before noticing Emirate Deadlock stridding closer. His optic band brightened bright red and he turned to face the coming mech with a salute.
