Title: Transformers: Interpersonal Skills
Author's Note: The Seekers discuss a run-in with a pair of infamous twins. This is a Flash Fan Fiction Friday entry, for the theme "Provoked." I tried something new with this; I didn't use any dialogue tags. Or anything but dialogue. I'm hoping the readers will be able to pick up on who's who. Word count: 262
"I don't know why you two're so upset."
"Really, 'Warp? No idea?"
"They're called the 'Twin Terrors' for a reason. They were gonna attack us anyway, TC."
"You provoked them. Deliberately."
"Nuh-uh. I merely commented on their choice of paint colors."
"You compared Sunstreaker's yellow to the slime trail of an Altrectian mud slug."
"He took it completely wrong. Those trails are quite lustrous."
"And Sideswipe's paint is 'like the external digestive juices of Xess'an night beast.'"
"Yeah? That red glop is actually quite brilliant and shiny. I don't know why they both got so upset."
"Gee, you compare them to slime and bile, and wonder why they don't like it."
"Those two are just overly sensitive."
"Will you two shut up? It's bad enough I have to fly in this condition. I don't wish to add audio torture to my list of pains."
"Apparently, the twins aren't the only sensitive ones. Y'know, Screamer, you're not the only one who got judoed."
"Don't call me that!"
"My point, 'Warp, is maybe we might not have been 'judoed' so vigorously if you hadn't opened that mouth of yours."
"This is Skywarp you're discussing. He is incapable of not opening his mouth."
"Maybe you should try shutting yours, Screamer!"
"Do. Not. Call. Me. That!"
"Again, 'Warp, if you could control your vocalizer, you'd get in less trouble. Honestly, you have the interpersonal skills of Grimlock."
"Hey! Well, at least that's still better than Screamer."
