*The table tennis balls hit Knock Out on the helm but he didn’t seem to feel it enough to wake him up. The voice, however, he heard. Sleepily, he refocused his optics until he could see the smaller robot. He furrowed his opticbrows.*
KO: Who are you and how did you even get in here?!”
KO: Starblast is my and Star’s sparkling. And why yes, he has pretty wings like his carrier. Tiny adorable wings.
Do you want to play with Starblast, Ravage? I’ll let you if you promise to be nice to him. He needs more playmates.
Squeaking happily as he was comfortably scooped up and placed into the medic’s warm lap, Ravage slumped out, a puddle of happily purring bitlet as his helm was pet and stroked, dissolving him into blissblissblisslovepetlovepets. Either be it a sparkling thing, a deployer thing, or just a Ravage thing, he was a tactile little bundle.
Ears perked up as Starscream re-entered the room, curious optics taking in the new sparkling, tail wagging at the little wingnubs visible to him, pretty wings, pretty wings!!! It was no fair! He wanted to be a seeker so he could have pretty wings too!
That little tail started wagging in greeting as Starblast chirped to him, the kitten not understanding exactly….but chittering back, a happy mewl offering a greeting to the potential new friend. He perked up as servos reached out to him, ooohhh definitely new friend!! And cuddles!!! The pets from Knockout were nice and purr-worthy, but snuggles beat anything on the table. He put his own paws out to the seekerlet, squeaking and wagging his tail, bio-lights lighting up in anticipation. Snuggles, snuggles, snuggles!!!
*Starblast looks uncertainly towards his creators when his chirprs are not answered in a manner he expected. But when Starscream nodded and chirped reassuringly to his creation, Starblast smiled and turned back to Ravage. Letting out a small happy giigle at the other sparkling’s meowing, he decided he liked the sound Ravage made.
Seeing his creation’s interest in the other sparkling, Starscream sat next to Knock Out and positioned Starsblast to sit in his lap, allowing the little seekerlet to finally pull Ravage into a tight hug.*
"Aww, look Star, he likes his new friend!"

Speaking Common Cybertronian (up to several words)
KO: I’ll use Earth’s units of time for your conveniece. Cybertronian sparklings are created capable of doing things human babies learn to perform during their first 1-3 months. Such as: tracing objects with their optics, smiling, laughing, gripping things in their servos.
Some things are specific for seekerlets:
Different frame models develop slightly differently but this is more or less when sparklings develop certain skills:
KO: Wouldn’t the boat be used as a club rather than a sword in that case?
Oh, and I decided which emotion would dominate me if I see a robot who can easily use an aircraft carrier as a weapon.
(Off to berth now)
KO: Cautious and curious. I’m not sure which one would win.
Also, I’m curious how it is possible to use a boat as a sword.. ?
KO: It takes more than being a fellow Cybertronian for us to like someone.
KO: We’d rather forget nightmares but that works too I guess.
KO: We just returned from our one week holiday at Oil Sea. Granted the oil is next to useless for our frames but its transperancy makes it perfect for swimning and such. Sparklings love it and so did Starblast.
