Statsraad Lehmkuhl
Hello, I'm Statsraaden, a tall sailing ship. I found this place after wandering a bit around, and here I am. So, who are you?
13th-Aug-2010 07:39 pm (UTC)
"I'm Cloudtrader!" comes a happy reply from seeming nowhere.
14th-Aug-2010 07:16 pm (UTC)
Hello. Where are you?
14th-Aug-2010 10:59 pm (UTC)
"I'm right here!" The voice seems now to be coming from right in front of the tall ship, but there still seems to be no visible source.
15th-Aug-2010 08:41 am (UTC)
You're invisible?
15th-Aug-2010 05:47 pm (UTC)
There's a startled squeak. "I am? Oh! Where'd I leave my body? BRB!"
15th-Aug-2010 08:09 pm (UTC)
See you later.
15th-Aug-2010 11:07 pm (UTC)
And then there's a swish and a gentle flash of light in front of the tall ship, and a little Seeker sparklet only six foot tall is hovering in front of him with a happy grin. "Can you see me now?"
16th-Aug-2010 04:35 pm (UTC)
Yes, I can see you.
16th-Aug-2010 05:08 pm (UTC)
"Yay!" The little guy hugs himself with joy, then zips upward just a bit. "Okay. I'm Cloudtrader. What's your name? :D"
16th-Aug-2010 05:19 pm (UTC)
Statsraaden. You can call me Stats. Nice to meet you.
16th-Aug-2010 05:22 pm (UTC)
"Statsraaden. Stats. What does it mean?" Cloudtrader comes closer, his blue optics wide with innocent curiosity.
16th-Aug-2010 05:39 pm (UTC)
Those are nicknames. My full name is Statsraad Lehmkuhl. I was named after a high-ranked government official who did much for the country where I live. My nicknames are after his title.
16th-Aug-2010 06:13 pm (UTC)
"Ohhhh. So you're just a human thingie?" One small blue and white hand reaches out to touch Stats' prow. It's pretty clear that being a 'human thingie' doesn't make the ship any less an interesting person in his optics.
16th-Aug-2010 06:24 pm (UTC)
What do you mean? That humans own me? Not really. I work for them, and with them. Otherwise, we're independent from each other, and I'm included in every decision that affects us.
We may not give each other names, but we give each other nicknames.
16th-Aug-2010 06:26 pm (UTC)
"Did the humans make you? Can I sit on you?" The questions are innocent, and the smile on Cloudtrader's face is hopeful.
16th-Aug-2010 06:32 pm (UTC)
No, we're born, not made. I myself have two sons and six grandchildren.
Yes, you can sit on me. There's plenty of space.
16th-Aug-2010 06:33 pm (UTC)
Cloudtrader gives a happy little laugh and perches his skidplate on the pointy bit on the front of the ship, which his landlubber mun can't remember the name to. "Oh! Do you have a mate? Is she pretty?"
16th-Aug-2010 06:44 pm (UTC)
I did. She was. She's dead now. But thanks to her I have my sons.
16th-Aug-2010 06:46 pm (UTC)
"I'm dead." Cloudtrader hugs his knees and rests his chin on them, his optics bright with curiosity. "Where do dead ships go? Do you have somebody who created the first ships and takes you back, like Transformers do?"
16th-Aug-2010 07:03 pm (UTC)
Dead ships don't go anywhere. They just cease to exist. I think it's better than the alternative. Spending an infinite amount of time separated from everybody you ever knew, and them knowing about it? I would go crazy. Especially knowing they might think you don't care about them anymore, or you would be back.
Chaces are we've been created at some time, because we're clearly not evolved from anything on our planet, but we've never heard of our creators.
16th-Aug-2010 07:13 pm (UTC)
"Aww. That's too bad. I've been to the Allspark- that's where Transformers go- and there are lots of people who know me. I don't live there, though. I live in the dream. I've met our creator. Primus is nice, and he likes to snuggle."

Which is a very important thing in the eyes of a baby bot.
16th-Aug-2010 07:24 pm (UTC)
It's good that you've been given the chance to come back, then.
16th-Aug-2010 07:57 pm (UTC)
Cloudtrader pauses at that, his expression slightly confused. "I don't think I really did."
16th-Aug-2010 08:07 pm (UTC)
What do you mean?
16th-Aug-2010 08:11 pm (UTC)
"Well, I don't know what reality I came from, but I know it wasn't the dream because we all came there afterward except for the first Starscream. And I never was alive, so I guess it wouldn't really be going back, huh?"
