It looks just as the same as ever, their silence and stillness. Soundwave isn’t the most emotive of bots, nor is he himself, but they even less so. They both have no such requirement for making any such things apparent, it’d only get in the way. Merely observe for a moment, a blatant, head-on examining before he straightens and lets himself take a step back to fall more behind their position.
… And though they aren’t in private, near anyone could bring their attention over to observe and peep; he dares it anyway. Lift a servo, and touch. Not anything too deceptively scandalous, simply letting the tips of clawed digits graze under the bottom curve of their torso armor thoughtfully. It’s rather bold of him in any case.
He does not deign expressing emotives through vocal means. Communications in the long run: meaningless among others, and a weakness he weaponises. When you can assert yourself physically you are surely master of your cause. They know? Of course… Intertwined in this mess of wires they are, that only themselves can understand and untangle. They know each other inside and out.
In this case, he is a place of his own. Nearly. He would not be where he stands if he could not rift through the expansive digital scissures and mesas he’s assigned to while still remaining systematic to the outside world. Thus a single elongated digit twitches when their touch graze the darkened blues of his superstructure. Yes, Soundwave knows Shockwave is encroaching him. Is their intent to drag him from Nexus?
Hey Shockwave is hot back off anon
