Acts of RemembranceThough the place was long-empty, it still called to him.Acts of Remembrance by o-WingedPanther-o
Sometimes it happened on the highway, while turning onto a different road or coming off an exit ramp. Sometimes it happened during a dive, just as he breached the surface. Sometimes Corona was with him. Usually, he was alone.
Whatever the situation, there would be the familiar subtle shift, and Umbra would find himself there.
And so it did, and he did.
The building was, for the most part, just as he remembered it... although in a certain, sad state of disrepair. The little drones that had cleaned and repaired the place and maintained the grounds had long ago powered down, never to cycle on again, leaving it to slowly deteriorate. The fixtures were tarnished and dirty, the windows filthy, some broken, bits of debris lay scattered on the floor, and a thick film of dust covered everything...

It had taken a while, but he’d eventually learned to sleep through their night-time noises, chirps and chirrs and low streams of grumbling, the occasional excited thump as their dreams got a little too exciting or, a few times, the sleepiest of arguments over someone getting kicked a little too energetically.

My Umbra muse has been... exceptionally lonely and exceptionally active lately. So I present this here with no context given… Suffice to say, it’s related to an old (and long-defunct) TF movie!verse RP forum/chat I used to frequent.
