TFP: Surprise! (Chapter V: What a Knock-Down...)
Lauren's left eyebrow twitched twice over, as Miko and Jack leaned in closer to her and Raph's screens, she growled, "So... Raph, do you ever find it annoying when someone is so close to you, you can feel their moist, warm breath on the back of your neck?"
Raph paused, looking up, and to her, "Um... I'm used to it."
"Right-large family-I remember... Er-and I'm sorry that they aren't here," Lauren whispered.
Raph breathed, "Uh-so, remind me what we're looking for?"
"You are hacking into the government to look for anything out of the ordinary," Lauren said, and Raphs fingers were a blur across his own keyboard. "While I am deleting all the information on the autobots off the internet I can... Miko, if you don't back up-I'll tell Jack that little secret. Jack-don't make me mention the circuit!"
They both backed away.
"Thank you," Lauren said, cheerfully, "So... I guess I should get y'all some food... just let me. Hop-skip-and a jump, thats all I can do. There will still be some fragments,
TFP: Surprise! (Chapter IV: Team Prime...)
Rachet's voice some how drew both Lauren and Optimus out of-whatever it had been. Optimus looked to Rachet, and Lauren held the Matrix shard tightly in her right hand, as though she was afraid to lose it. The storm that Optimus had felt inside of her was gone... some how.
Lauren stood in Optimus's hand, "How did this happen? I believed that the autobots were merely a figment of my imagination... not I've seen otherwise. How did you get here-I remember you having a base."
"We did, but this seems to be an entirely different world," Rachet muttered.
"First cybertronian are real and now the theory of multiple realities seems to have merit," Lauren tapped her lip.
"Yes, after a bit of research, I do believe that this is an entirely different reality," Rachet confirmed.
Lauren sighed, "Alright then, have you figured out how?"
Rachet shook his head, "And by the Allspark what happened? You seem like you are an entirely different human."
Lauren blinked, then looked away with a

"And you escaped unscathed?" Optimus asked.
Lauren nodded vigorously, "Yeah-yeah-yeah. Megatron must have lost track of him, I mean why didn't he even fly I away-dummy."
"Starscream lost his T-cog to a ruthless organization known as-"
"MECH-Silas is the only known leader-the jerks who butchered Breakdown-I don't like them for trying to take the DING-y-thingy... they're dummies too," Lauren muttered, "Agh! Focus you stupid idiot! If the Autobots are here this is serious, they don't need a stupid shatter-brained human!" she scolded herself.
Optimus was silent a moment, when he finally said, "Are you feeling well, Miss Courage?"
Lauren laughed in a squeaky tone, "Hee-hee-HEE! He called me Miss Courage!-You need to focus, Lauren.-But its so funny!-Shut up, and listen to me-what ever is happening it is vital that you listen to Optimus... this is important... -Okay, I'll try.
"I-will have my medic look you over before we... speak," Optimus assured.
Lauren beat her head, then laugh
TFP: Surprise! (Chapter II: In disguise...)
Lauren's night had been filled with continuous dreams of the cybertronians. From Orion Pax, to Optimus, from Megatron to Unicron. Nightmares, dreams it was all the same. And it wasn't real-it couldn't be, could it? The next morning, Friday, Lauren had gotten ready for school, and was sitting on the couch in her room, pondering the events the day before. She was scared-not of them being real-but of the doctors... what if they heard she was going crazy. Lauren didn't even know what she was diagnosed with! They said something along the lines of DID, but it wasn't. The best they could give her and her mom was 'Lauren is a single case of a heightened mixture of Avoidant, and Multiple personality disorder. Lauren hissed, "I'm not crazy... I can't be... wouldn't I feel crazy? I'm just a little--different, right? Agh-talking to myself isn't helping... maybe I do think there's two of me or somethin'."
Luke peeked his head in the door, "You're so crazy, Lauren!"
Lauren blushed, sighing, "I am no
TFP: Surprise! (Chapter I: Coincidence?...)
After Physics, Lauren had hopped on a bus, and rode over to the local community college. From the student center, she had walked to SPCH, then SPAN, and finally ended that lovely Thursday in August at 14:15 HOURS. She sat in the back of the student center, awaiting her mom to pick her up, and take her home. It had been a busy week thus far, and both college and high school had barely started back up. She opened up her HIST 1301, and in said spare time, she began pouring over the true beginning to the oh so 'wonderful' country of America. As she looked over a words "putting a ding in us" her mind, for some strange reason recalled the Dingus. Agent Fowler requesting help, the first encounter with MECH-Silas... She growled, the snake reminded her of several other people. Finding that she was beginning to have trouble focusing, she put the notes away, and slouched against the brick wall beside the bench where she sat... she brewed the disgust into a good bit of loathing, until she noticed
Transformers Prime: Surprise! (Prologue: Physics)
The poor Lauren's jaw dropped upon seeing the second page of problems for the second day in a row. They usually only recieved one, plus their daily notes courtesy of the lovely, heavy, four inch Physics Textbook. Clearly she was not the only student completely insulted by the busy work. Not that she was even good at the subject to begin with. It wasn't even a Theoretical Physics class-this was just highschool! So in an attempt to toss a red-herring into the complicated discussion of theoretical physics, she began by mentioning the basic inertia factor, and how the Professor claimed that he would demonstrate inertia with a pail of water... the fact is he had promised that last semester! She still hadn't been able to put her plan of instead dumping the water onto his head in motion...
There, her mind once again trail off. The girl had an uncanny knock for getting lost in her favorite TV show, Transformers: Prime. What bothered her most is that people acted like they had no idea what it w
Transformers Prime: Surprise! (Premise)
When Lauren Ash Courage made a wish on a blown eyelash, she had no idea that it would actually come true. She wishes to be "Anything but Ordinary". That's when she meets real living robots able to turn into cars. By some stroke of insanity Lauren finds herself to know everything about them, and strange memories begin to manifest within her mind. Their leader, Optimus Prime shares the Cybertronian history with her, also inquiring as to how she could possibly know about them if in this world they do not exist. Beyond that she finds herself on the run from Decepticons and the organization known as MECH alike. Can this highschool/college student survive the chaos of a war older than civilization? Can she overcome the obstacles of ally and enemy? Furthermore... can Courage even convince the American government that the Autobots are on their side?

When Siri came to, she was staring at the ceiling of the Wane Ranch barn. Her head was still spinning, but the comforting sound of horses made her come back to planet earth. She rubbed the back of her head, as she stood, but something was wrong. She felt the top of her head... her stetson was missing. Siri growled, then stomped out of the hay stall. The very first thing she noticed was her bay filly, Robbi was in her stall eating breakfast. "Howdy?" she walked over.
Robbi walked over, and sniffed her in greeting.
"You leave me out there and expect me to just be all hunky-dory?" Siri asked.
Robbi bobbed her head, and neighed.
"Dang, horse-sometimes I think you understand me." She sighed, "Eat up, 'cause we're headin' back out in a few... I don't know how either of us got back, but we're goin' after my stetson. My momma gave me that there stetson, got it?"
Robbi bobbed her head again, and returned to her oats.
Siri shrugged, before
