Well... after settling myself in my room, and doing a little "online research" about this new planet I'm on, I think I feel ready to start exploring the Ark. :) I mustn't let the other mechs... unnerve me so. c_c; I know for the most part, they don't mean it. I'm just still not quite used to the 'rough and tumble' types. But I guess this will be a great lesson.

I wonder who I'll run into, in the Ark's hallways. There are so many Autobots I wish to meet, from what Ratchet and Wheeljack have told me! Jazz and Blaster, certainly... as well as Mirage. Mirage's friends, Hound and Trailbreaker, sound like nice mechs too. And the others Ratchet mentioned...

Well, I won't meet anyone here! The Ark may be large, but I have no fear of getting lost. I just hope I don't end up some place where I'm not allowed to be. c_c Ah well! Exploring I shall go! :)

...That's what Jazz said it looked like I was in, while I was talking to him, whatever it means. More on that in a moment....

Taking advantage of that brief blackout Wheeljack caused, I ducked out of the hall to avoid the more rowdy Autobots and their 'sport'... I entered the lounge.

And to my absolute delight I happened across Jazz there.

Oh, we talked for decacycles... My initial expression on loving music, and my past as a dancer was enough for him to launch into all SORTS of descriptions of the various music and dancing styles here on Earth. So often he included samples of the music, and demonstrated some of the dance moves he picked up. Ratchet's appraisal of him didn't do him justice! He is incredibly talented, and so diverse is his knowledge... I wish he had been my instructor, back at Iacon's Grand Dance Acadamy! As it is, I hope to become a student of his here, on Earth... and I hope to do his teachings justice.

He seemed quite amused, when I stated my intentions. He gave me a few discs, saying that there were video samples of all sorts of different cultural dances on them. I thanked him greatly, and told him I would study them immediately. He laughed, saying he knew I would.

Then he had to leave... some sort of business that had to do with pulling strings, or something... whatever that means... :/ Well, an enjoyable mech, and I so look forward to speaking to him again. Blaster, too... if he is anything like Jazz.

So here I am, still in the lounge, and I've been watching a couple of these videos. I am beyond captivated. Cybertron had nothing like this here. The sheer... VOLUME of different styles is nearly unchartable. The diversity is mindboggling.

I found I was drawn to this 'ballet', which was similar to styles I had learned on Cybertron, but I was quite enamored with this "Latin dance". So rich, so vibrant... *__* I decided to try some. A dance called the "Flamenco". Elegant, sweeping movements of body and arms, with some very quick, skilled footwork. It looks very challenging. I love a good challenge. :)

So even though it's so very "late" at night, now, I can't help but want to try some of these dances out. Most Autobots are likely in recharge, so I'll keep the music on a soft volume. But Primus... I have to giggle at myself. I feel like a rookie at the Acadamy, faltering over every second step! ^.^ It shall take me a while to learn all the moves to this dance, the variations, then improvisations... but I'm ready for that. Now, I think I'll close my log for the time being, and get back to my 'lessons'... :)
