A Storm Without Rain (Transformers)
After thousands of years of being alone, stranded in dead space, she finally picked up a signal. The Autobot leader inviting his followers to the planet Earth. Delta crashes on the organic planet, expecting to find a mass of Autobots welcoming her, but is met a handful of Autobots desperately fighting for their lives and the organic planet.
Ironhide is the fist to communicate with her and make any real connection with her. Her innocence amazed him. She seemed to be untouched by the tragedy of war and he envied her. Delta felt safe with the old war veteran. He was gruff and mean, but he was loyal above all else. She admired that and found him to be genuine. Ironhide was who he was and he didn't back down from anything, not even their leader.
Their friendship grows and then past that had always haunted Delta comes back to bite her. It leaves her questioning who she is and her place on the team. She even questions her friendship with Ironhide and everything he taught her.
There comes a time when we all have to make sacrifices. It leaves her with a feeling of abandonment that she had never felt before. She loses her morality and everything that she thought she was or ever will be. The only one left who understands her is the black-armored weapons specialist who lets down his walls to show her that she wasn't alone. Delta would never be alone as long as Ironhide's spark still burned.
