Brainstorm is TP-Only and CANNOT be applied for.

Brainstorm and Spike

The strongest tyrant cannot crush freedom of thought.


So you're wondering how it got to...HAH AH I'm just kidding! You know what's what, and you know why's why, which is WHY  (see what I did there?), you're here!  Because here is me and that is the BEST here. 

Okay so what's up? You've got a few minutes with THE greatest analytical mind in the universe (I know because I told it to do so), so what do you ask?  Hmm?  Oh, you want to know one of the EIGHT, count em, EIGHT ways I can blow your processor with my post-quantum understanding of the universe? Well, tell you what. Every ounce of knowledge requires something, so I'll tell you what. Read my bio here, put it in long term storage, and if you're clever enough (you aren't), you'll see I've snuck TWO very important facts about the universe at large into my bio.


Brainstorm is a never-ending font of ideas. Whether he's in the middle of a battle or consciously working on another of his projects, new ideas are the background noise of his mind, sometimes to such an extent that his brain will overheat. In his zeal to see these ideas realized, Brainstorm sometimes forgets about things like "basic safety" and "proper experimental procedure". He will happily hand out new and untested inventions to less-than-responsible comrades for field-testing. His inventions range from useful biotechnology, to outlandish anti-personnel weaponry, to devices that harness the bizarre and unthinkable.

Brainstorm transforms into a turquoise Cybertronic fighter craft.


Brainstorm worked in the Kimia facility until its destruction in 2015. He swears it wasn't his fault.

Aug 28 - Caution: Brainstorm at Work

The cyan, white and yellow form of the Autobot's best inventor, yes you heard that Wheeljack, appears. "Alright, so you're experiencing a faction-wide synapse feed, launched from my secret lab..." He raises his hands melodramatically, "In parts unknown!" Behind him, Tailgate and Folly seem to be engrossed in some conversation, "Topic 1: what I really wanted to show off to everyone is my new click-clacker here." Brainstorm raises a hand that just shows a red button connected only to a small pad. "Check this out." He clicks it once, then responds, "See, nothing happened. Or did it?" He clicks it again, "Its almost as if you do and don't understand what happened at once right?" He starts clicking it repeatedly as he has his fun, "It's all just sort of barely conscious awareness at work. Not that you understand...or do you?" He winks an optic, "Topic Six: I've got sixteen different projects going on, and only half of them are considered existential threats to all humanity, so what about another few? I've got human robot telemetry data to process, I've got respooling the initial big bang sequence, rebuilding not one, but TWO primordial threats against humanity, but that can wait a few weeks, I've gdmdnfmmddnd,d,doskaobtmtocybelit." The image seems to speed up as he keeps talking, before it quickly reverts to normal, "Oh did you not catch that?" He says smugly, "I just fast forwarded your processor! You're welcome. Topic 3: last and not least is retrofitting old weaponry. Like... "SPECIAL WEAPONRY". And I have determined that out of fuel."

Brainstorm gestures with a shrug, "I shouldn't tell the entire faction that, since most of you aren't cleared for it....but oh hey!" He clicks a small remote, "Now you're cleared for it, You're all ranked as Intelligence Operatives rank 8 for the next fourteen astroseconds. You're welcome. Back to my notes here, of which I have many, its out of power. Topic Eleven: Omnisotope...that's some heavy duty stuff. Meant to be an omni-directional energy source, its never been recreated. Not even by...and your fourteen seconds are up. While I'll at it, I'd better block a few of those classified things I just said, sooooo wipe wipe wipe that last bit from your mind..." He looks up at the camera as he fiddles with his remote and clicks it as he speaks, "You'll be fine. But then again, if you weren't, how'd you know?"

"aaaaaand....we're good. Alright. So point is secret special thing that your subconscious processor remembers needs something that I could probably make, but its going to take a lot more time than we have." Brainstorm raises a digit, "And where the fun happens."

Sep 09 - Caution:Brainstorm at Work

Brainstorm appears on screen, he's slouched over a fabrication table, and appears to be overcharged out of his gourd. He haphazardly wipes away some engex containers as he looks in at the camera. "I've got it! //ANTI-FOOD//. Its like...well, I mean organics eat food. But if they eat ANTI-FOOD, its the exact opposite. It takes nutrients from them." He raises a hand and thumbs around on a datapad, "w-wait wait wait...hear me out. can breathe. How about that? Did I overload your processor? Ha Haha! See? It'd be like...I don't know, gaseous nitrous or something. A stimulant supercharge. I got it by watching..." He gets in even closer, enough to see the oil on his facemask, "HOOMANS." He settles back down, "That...That don't grab ya? Okay, I got another one. We transform the..the entire Primus damned planet. Okay? We take some guys and we cram em into a giant head, and we slap that on Cybertron. I mean there's a big hole right there, it can't be TOO hard." He wipes his faceplate, smearing the oil, "Okay Okay, I know, no more war planets, fine fine, But this one is going to." He suddenly just vomits purple energon over the screen, there's a thump sound, and by the time the screen is clear, he's passed out on the table. The camera stays on him for a very long period of time before it finally shuts off.

September 30 - "Renewal"

Gridiron's spark survived and gets placed in a new body.

October 6 - "Working on Kodiak"

Kodiak is back on his feet but still needs to get used to his new alt form. It's running a bit rough.

November 12 - "Caution: Brainstorm at Work!"

Posting this log is worth 50 Brainstorm Points easy


Oct 13 - Re: Mishap


Brainstorm slams his hand down on a table. "Simulations realistic enough to the point of being real? Who was looking at my notes?! Why I've got a mind to rewind time." He holds up a processor in his off hand, "This one. Anyway, stop cribbing off my datapad, or I'll make it eat you."



Feb 16 - Re: Rolling out

Note: If SPIKE would wear his helmet like I told him to, he'd be closer to extracting all of that data in his head.

Apr 13 - how DARE you!

Brainstorm slams his fist down on a table, "I don't know who it was, but SOMEONE was mad sciencing the other day! We've gone over this. Nobody gets to mad science and horn in on my turf. I've got that stuff on LOCK, son!" He jerks a thumb to himself, "I'M the one that creates abominations under sky and mech, I'M the one that tampers with things that..." He waves his hands in a 'spooky' gesture, "things 'mechs are not meant to know'. ME! Whomever is out there mad sciencing, I won't have it! I called dibs! There's only one way to settle this! First person to destroy a galaxy of our mutual agreement, WINS!"

The feed cuts off.

OOC Notes

Brainstorm is TP-Only and CANNOT be applied for.

Brainstorm had the misfortune of being the sole victim of a weapon of his own design, a metatextual bomb. As such, while Brainstorm does not know he's in a MUSH, nor break the fourth wall, he's bound to act like Brainstorm no matter what channel he's on, in or out of character.

Which....well, draw your own conclusions, neo-primitives.


Brainstorm is masterfully played by Zero.
