[[Christmas Party!]]

((OOC: Basically, this entire thing is set up outside. Assume that the thing spans all of December 24th - I'm just giving us a week to get the full experience!))

Outside the base, near the junkyard, Jolly has been busy. She's called in dozens of elves to decorate a huge space with icicle lighting, huge Christmas tress that are, at the smallest, 13 feet. The entire place is also mysteriously covered with three feet worth of snow - not much for the Transformers, but it adds some scenery.

There's a huge, Transformer sized wet-bar with as many cubes as the elves could scrounge up, including a lot of eggnog flavored ones. There's even tons of chocolate and peppermint energon snacks! Look how well Jolly treats you all!

(There is, of course, drinks and snacks for the humans and the elves, but they're on a human-sized bar away from the Transformers one.)

There's Christmas music floating from somewhere, but it's impossible to see where.

Jolly is currently yelling at elves to keep themselves busy, since it's bad form for hosts to start partying before their guests arrive.

This is most strange! Something noisy and shiny and white and weird in her outdoors! Maybe this was the friend she had heard about earlier.

The giant mechanical griffin makes her way to the unknown thing, stomp stomp stomp! across the desert. New friends are to be made tonight!
Elves scatter at the griffin's approach, but Jolly just yells at them about honor and manners. She's not phased in the slightest by the giant robot - if anything, she looks more nonplussed than usual.
She walks right up to Jolly and looks down at the tiny creature from her giant height. "Hi! Are you a friend?"
Moonracer was very excited about this, she thought it was the best idea ever, and she drug a very reluctant Bombshell with her to the party, squealing the whole time about the decorations.
Ramjet has been watching the goings-on from a safe distance. He's perched on this rock all day, trying to decide what to do about the unsightly mess that had appeared for apparently no reason.

After being stuck in that disgusting Insecticon body for so long, he really, really wants to destroy something, and the annoyingly shiny party area is such an inviting target. But there appears to be high-grade there, and Primus knows he really wants some of that, too. So eventually he steps down from his rock and slowly stalks towards his target. With that giant purple monstrosity distracting people, he just might be able to sneak in and grab a few cubes (more than a few; gotta save some for later) before letting loose a few missiles.
Swoop likes shiny things. There are lots of shiny things at the party. So, of course, immediately upon spotting it, he flys over and perches on top of one of the smaller trees, staring down in wonder.

"...me Swoop not know what white stuff is..."
[comes trudging up from his medbay after Jazz's checkup and hears Swoop's comment]

The humans call it snow, Swoop. It's quite harmless.
"Snow? It look weird."

Cautiously, Swoop comes down from the tree he's in and onto the snow, only to sink down into it. Being only eight feet tall and sinking into three feet of an unknown substance, of course he's going to panic; shrieking, he flaps his wings and latches onto the nearest tall object.

Which happens to be Ratchet.

"Me Swoop not like it! Cold!"
{has an armful of panicking mech in his arms} Calmly he tells Swoop, "It's not that deep. And snow is just frozen water. Ironhide complains, but as long as you get dry, you'll be fine."
"Not all that often," Ironhide pokes Ratchet's shoulder, quirking an optic ridge at the clinging Dinobot.
"He's discovered snow, Hide, and does not like it apparently." Ratchet shrugs one shoulder. "You spent several cycles one day complaining about driving through the mud. And we won't get into the Rust, either."
Swoop pouts, still clinging to the medic, refusing to look at the snow, "It cold."
Ironhide scowls, "It got all in my undercarriage."
"And yet you lived. It's a hazard on living on a planet rich in organic life. One gets wet and dirty here." Ratchet quirks an optic ridge at Hide, mirroring his previous expression.
"Don't mean I have to like it," Ironhide grouses, putting a hand on Ratchet's shoulder to help keep him steady.

"Swoop, why don't you go get one of those energon snacks?"
Swoop perks up slightly, looking at Ironhide, "Energon snacks?"
*points to the table loaded down with snacks* "Over there, Swoop. I haven't had a chance to sample them, but they're looking pretty tasty from over here."
"Ooooh..." Swoop smiles happily and lets go of Ratchet, gliding over to the table and landing on it instead of the cold snow.
Ironhide shakes his head, "Easily distracted."
"Like someone else I know." Ratchet watches Swoop try to decide which snack to try first.
"Wheeljack?"
Ratchet nods his head. "For as long as I've known him, he's very distractable. I used to drive him up the wall sometimes whenever he was trying to do an experiment by just mentioning food."
Ironhide chuckles, squeezing Ratchet's shoulder, "Heh, so you're probably partly to blame for when things blew up, huh? Distractions making him mess up."
Meanwhile, Swoop is happily munching on a snack, sitting on the table.

"I did say it was frozen, Swoop. Frozen means that it is very very cold." Ratchet explains, trying not to land on his aft from Swoop dragging him off balance.
