Drabble 1: Do not touch
After scanning the human truck and upgrading his rusted body, Optimus went to the location where the remaining Autobots were stationed. It was out in the dessert and pretty much deserted with the exception of the scorpions and other desert critters who made their home there. When Optimus drove up Hound and Bumblebee came to greet him but he saw that Drift was in his vehicle alt mode, a sign that he was meditating. But Cade Yeager didn't know that. All he saw was the most gorgeous car he'd ever seen. He practically sprinted like the Road Runner as he rushed over to Drift and rubbed all over his hood and opened his car door to look at his interior. Optimus tried to warn him of the impending danger he was putting himself in, but when he got to Drift's bumper and started feeling around there it was too late and suddenly he was picked up but a strong grip and looked into the barrel of a big gun that was held by Crosshairs. The very possessive bondmate of Drift who is known to be as green optic as his paint job when someone even breathes near him.
“You must have a death wish to be feelin' up on my bondmate, wanker.” Crosshairs stated as he cocked his gun.
Thanks to the combined efforts of Tessa's pleading for her father's life, Optimus' scolding not to harm the human who saved him and Drift's reassurance that he didn't pay attention to the human's caresses and only cared about his touches Crosshairs finally calmed down and let Cade go. But of course he made a very clear warning of what would happen if Cade touched Drift again before doing so.
And it was then Cade Yeager learned not to touch strange gorgeous alien cars.
Drabble 2: This is what hard time does to you
After finally being freed from his imprisonment at that terrible human lab, Brains couldn't be more grateful for the fresh hair and being around fellow Autobots. And one Autobot in particular wound up Brains circuits. It was that sleek blue and gold cyber ninja Drift. Because of his designated “morgue duty” back at the lab Brains gained a new found appreciation for how bots were built. And the way Drift was built was like saying “vavava voom”. He wasn't shy about expressing his appreciation for Drift's build either. It was very clear when, during their flight to China, Brains clung onto Drift's leg and began humping against his leg while chanting “Thank you, Nobunaga, thank you”. While a considerable bit disturbed Drift humbly accepted Brains' gratitude and tried to gently push him off his leg. But then Crosshairs grabbed him in a strong grip and squeezed him while growling at the little scrap drone.
“Don't try starin' me down, Mr. Man! I've been on death row and worked with bodies day and night with no pension or benefits! What kinda shit do ya think you can do ta me?! All I want is to love like the mech I used to be cause Primus knows I won't live long enough to see another piece of fine aft like that.” Brains stated, gesturing to Drift who's face plates heated up in embarrassment.
The ship had to stop for a moment so Optimus could save Brains after Crosshairs tossed him out of the window.
Drabble 3: Got your back
Drift and Crosshairs were intensely fighting the Transformium drones with all their might. They weren't about to let Galvatron commit a world wide genocide. But while Crosshairs was holding up his end pretty well with his girls, the twin guns he named Dusk and Dawn, he noticed that Drift wasn't doing so well. His swords were strong but a large number of drones were ganging up on him, and Drift couldn't take them all on at once. And when he saw one Transformium drone grab Drift from behind while the one in front took his swords Crosshairs knew he had to do something. But his girls needed to reload. When he heard a roar not too far off and turned to see Spike, the triceratops based Dinobot, fighting off some drones he got an idea and grinned. Without a second thought Crosshairs mounted the stout prehistoric creature and ran over the drones surrounding his bondmate. Drift panted from his tiring experience and Crosshairs dismounted from Spike then grabbed his beloved's swords and handed them to him. The cyber ninja gratefully took his weapons and smiled at Crosshairs.
“It is good to know that you look out for me with such loyalty and devotion.” Drift said.
“Always. And I believe in human films, such loyalty and devotion deserves a kiss.” Crosshairs said with a grin as he helped up his lover.
And a kiss is just what the green badass bot got.
Drabble 4: Double Date
Two years after all was said and done with the events of Galvatron and Lockdown, the Yeagers settled well into their new home that Joshua Joyce provided. Shane and Tessa decided to go out for a date to celebrate their anniversary. Cade was still a bit reluctant, being the protective dad that he is, but agreed to let them go as long as they made it a double date. Both Shane and Tessa's friends were all busy but Cade knew the perfect pair that could take their place.
So driving down the scenic beach side road was Drift in his alt mode with Tessa and Crosshairs in his alt mode with Shane, both Autobots driving side by side.
“I must say, Tessa-chan, this 'double dating' activity is quite enjoyable.” Drift said.
“Yeah. I can honestly say that you and Crosshairs make it more enjoyable, Drift.” Tessa said brightly.
“Totally! We should do this more often.” Shane said with a smile.
“I'd actually go for that, but just don't ask us with Hound and Bumblebee around ankle-biters. That fat arse rust bucket kept sayin' how I should take his 'lucky cigars' while that brat speedster kept playin' some sappy love song talking about a bloke having a dream about a sheila last night and how they danced all night long.” Crosshairs said gruffly.
Drift, Tessa and Shane couldn't help but laugh.
Drabble 5: Pun on words
After the war Crosshairs was getting real antsy and bored what with having not a lot of enemies to lay some hate on. So Drift suggested he try doing some meditation with him. Reluctantly the badass green bot did so, and forced his legs to bend in the way Drift's did as he sat down beside him. During the calming exercise Crosshairs asked Drift what was the point of meditation. The cyber ninja replied that the point of meditating is to find inner peace. At this Crosshairs smirked and moved his hand to Drift's pelvic armor.
“If that's all you wanted I'll happily give you my own inner piece.” Crosshairs said and nipped at Drift's neck.
About ten minutes later Hound was laughing it up when Crosshairs was grumpily buffing out the dent Drift's hard slap left on his face.
Drabble 6: Sweetly Possessive
Crosshairs noticed how Drift always looked up to Optimus with those baby blue optics filled with admiration. And to be quite honest, it made his own optics as green as his paint job. He knew that it was silly of him to be so jealousy but he always felt like Drift saw Optimus as more of his mech friend than Crosshairs. But Drift would always reassure Crosshairs that he had nothing to worry about, that he was the only bot for him. Crosshairs smiled and embraced his beloved with a sense relief, but for his peace of mind he had to tell Optimus how he felt. After he finished the Prime gave an understanding smile and patted his combatant specialist on the shoulder.
“I respect your devotion and commitment with Drift, Crosshairs. I would never purposely impose on your relationship and I am glad to know that you trust me enough to tell me how you felt.” Optimus said.
“Thanks, Prime. But don't tell Drift. He'll think I'm a jealous doof if he finds out.” Crosshairs said. He then felt a tap on his shoulders and turned around to have his lips met with Drift's. When the cyber ninja pulled back he took his mech friend's hands and smiled.
“Actually, I think you are a sweet doof.” Drift said.
