    Defenders: Sample try-out: The First Cycles

    The only thing i rememeber of Cybertron was war. If u know Cybertron, then u know what war im speaking of. If not, ill explain the best i can*****Cybertron, the planet of autonimus organismns, called Cybertronians or, Transformers. Two factions called Autobots and Decepticons have been locked in war for thousands of years. Decepticons want control. Autobots want peace. Yet both wont yield. I have been trapped in the war i never knew of before. My name is Storm Cloud, and this is the story of me and the Defenders! ****************************************** Travel. Thru space, is boring. No action, nothing much see in all directions. These are my thoughts as i stood in the spaceship from earth. Why i am here? I do not know. Twas as if i was some sort of project.*I look around at the pilots around me, the engineer, the captain, even second in command were looking like they were watching me. I didnt like the feeling that something was going on. The captain, who i learned was Captain John Shapp, watched me with a critizing stare. I quickly turned back around when i saw his face. The spaceship kept going until westarted seeing unfamilliar planets and stars, and i saw a planet that was different from the others, it looked, made completely of metal. While i stood up front, watching the strange planet with a confused look, Captain Shapp was talking to one of the ships scientists. I couldnt hear what they were saying all but my name, Cloud. But i wasnt paying them any attention anyway, bc i saw flashes of light on the strange planet. The flashes were in random areas, but showed the most in one area on the far side that only i could see at that moment. "Cloud, come" one of the scientists called as if i were a dog. I ignored them and continued watching the lights on the planet. The scientists frowned and one, Dr. Chaunge, walked over to me and put a hand on my right shoulder, turning me around to face him. "We said come" he said, pulling me. I pulled back and wrenched out of his grip "what if i dont wanna?" Dr. Chaunge scowled and grabed my wrist, half dragging me to the other scientists. I looked back at the planet and saw a flash of light that was to bright to see the source. The scientists turned me back around and shoved me along out of the control room and into the hall. The sights were normal, i saw them every day, but there was one area i have never been. The door panel said 'TEST ROOM' and thats where they stopped pushing me. Tye door opened to reveal another scientist, the one i disliked the most. He was mad. A lunatic. Put those words together u get mad scientist. Yea. Crazy. ***once inside the test room, i saw a table with restrainment cuffs and some sort of machine over it. That scared me. I paniced and struggled, trying to get the guard to let go of my wrists. The guard frowned and looked at Dr. Chaunge, who nodded for some reason. Then, a sudden pain in the back of my head and blackness. I was unconcious the next few minutes. When i awoke, i was on the table, the cuffs that were attached to the table around my wrists. Confusing. Scary, and utterly puzzling. I looked up to find the machine was over me, and as i looked around, i saw Dr. Chaunge and the lunatic behind glass. I was alone, on a werd table with a wierder machine in my face. Then, dark. ********(should i continue? Is this a good start for my books? Rate plz! :) if i continue, check the next result fer more!)*******
