Title: Burn this Dancefloor
Characters: Sunstreaker, Bluestreak
Rating: PG
Notes: Written for the November challenge over at [ profile] tf_rare_pairing! (ETA: Also thanks to the super-wonderful [ profile] eerian_sadow for beta-ing! Sorry I forgot to add this when posting half-asleep this morning. *sheepish*)

Sunstreaker smirked as he looked around the club. It was nice, as most Praxian clubs tended to be, and the music was playing loud enough to get lost in. It was also close to both his hotel and the gallery currently doing a special show with some of his art pieces. That he generally found Praxian frames aesthetically pleasing was also a benefit. As with everything else they did, Praxians made sure even their common frames were well-designed and well-built, much to the benefit of Sunstreaker’s artistic senses.

One mech in particular caught Sunstreaker’s optic. His muted grays and black allowed the red on his chevron and pelvis to pop, drawing the optic to them. The mech was chatting animatedly with the group he was with, shoulder panels emphasizing his hand gestures. Sunstreaker downed the last of his drink and glided over to the mech, interrupting the conversation with a smirk. “Want to dance?”

The mech’s optics lit up. “Sure!”

Sunstreaker led him out onto the dance floor, joining the many other dancing pairs. He started out easy, leading him through basic spins and turns to allow them to get in sync and so that he could gauge his partner’s ability level. The mech’s steps were confident, well familiar with the dance style.

At each new song, the complexity of their moves increased. Other pairs began to take notice and the clear area around them grew as other mechs stopped to watch them whirl together; moving out, moving back in again. Sunstreaker paid them no attention, though. His focus was entirely on his partner. He had never before had such an instant rapport with a dance partner, and this mech’s skills were nearly equal to his own.

It was a while later when they finished with a flourish and were startled by the applause erupting around them. Tanks bordering on empty and cooling fans running high, they accepted proffered drinks from those surrounding them. And despite the rush of a good dance, they didn’t speak to each other for the rest of the night.

Sunstreaker smirked as he looked around the party in the rec room. A hauntingly familiar form caught his optic and he elbowed his twin. “Who’s the new guy?”

Sideswipe looked over to where Sunstreaker motioned. “Oh, that’s Bluestreak. He’s one of the few they managed to pull out of Praxus after, you know. Word is Prowl’s keeping a close optic on him, so you’d better watch yourself with him.”

I’m not the idiot who gets on Prowl’s bad side every other orn,” Sunstreaker replied as he started towards the gray Praxian. It was the same mech, but still so different; his grin was more forced, his panels twitched more, he chattered more, at rather than with his companions. Still, it would be interesting to see what hadn’t changed.

Sunstreaker tapped on Bluestreak’s shoulder to get his attention as Blaster changed to a new song. The yellow mech asked with a smirk, “Want to dance?”

Clear blue optics lit up with recognition. “Sure!”

Very very sweet =) It's a pairing I like to see, and both characters come off as unique and yet very much in their G1 characterization =) And I love your icon BTW!!

Nice to see Sunny behaving sane, and the mirroring of the two scenes.

Thank you! Yeah, I don't agree with the completely insane characterizations of him. :)

Given it's canon, his own brother's and Ratchet's words in More Than Meets The Eye (G1 char sheets), it doesn't bother me much. But it's still nice to see him when he's not in a psychotic mood.

The first I saw was in that MTMTE book, and I wasn't a fan with it. And I doubt he would be with the Autobots if he was as bad as some of the stuff implies...

Very much agreed that fanon has him worse than canon. Though at least with Sunny fanon has some basis in canon. Unlike Ratchet, who's personality did a solid 180 from MTMTE.
