Gold Arm glared at the mirror as he inspected the appendages that had been attached to his helm. The small tiger ears were set on the top of his head and were wirelessly connected to his neural net so that they accurately conveyed his emotion. They were currently folded down to each side expressing his extreme irritation. He was ready to tear them off when he heard the door open. He turned around to glare at whoever came to bother him. When he saw it was Magnum he relaxed a bit and the ears lifted slightly.
Magnum had been given large cat ears and they flitted playfully as he made his way over to the younger mech.
"You almost ready?"
Gold Arm snorted and the ears flattened against his head. “No! I want these stupid things off my head!”
Magnum gave him a sad look and his ears wilted to the side.
Gold Arm felt him self blush. The ears making the already expressive older mech more disarming.
"We only have to ware them for a little bit." Magnum reached up and petted one of his own ears. "I kind of like them."
"You would." Gold Arm grumbled.
Magnum chuckled and reached up to scratch behind Gold Arms ears. “I think they look cute on you.”
Gold Arm growled then wrapped his arms around Magnum and pulled him close.
"Yeah well maybe this tiger wants some pussy." He said with a chuckle
Magnum groaned and pushed the young mech away. “Thats gross Gold Arm. Now come on the photographer is waiting.”
The two waked out into the main room where everything had been set up to take pictures of the ears. The whole pointe of the ad was to encourage owners of common mechanoid to buy accessories for their bots. It was common practice to use famous mechs, like Iron Leaguers, even though the likely hood of them wearing them on a regular basis was very unlikely.
Gold Mask and Gold Foot had already had their turn and had quickly removed the embarrassing accessories.
Magnum stepped on stage first and did as the photographer told him. They wanted different shots of the emotions that the ears could express. So they asked him to act happy and sad. Excited and scared, until they had taken enough shots of the ears full functions.
Magnum stepped down and Gold Arm took his place.
"Alright Mr Gold Arm I would like you to show me being happy." The photographer said.
Gold Arm gave a fake smile but the ears staid flat in irritation.
"Um Gold Arm we need you to actually act happy, otherwise the ears wont work."
Gold Arm growled. “I’m a pitcher not an actor!”
The Photographer sighed and took a few shots of the ears in the current position.
Then Magnum just happened to walk up behind the photographer to talk to the other two brothers. He looked over at Gold Arm for a moment, who looked ready to storm off the stage. He waved to get the young mech attention.
Gold Arm saw the wave and looked over. Magnum smiled at him sweetly which made him relax a bit. He gave a small smile back and thats when the ears popped up.
The photographer spotted it and quickly took some picture. Then he looked to see what had changed the mechs mood and saw Magnum standing just behind him. He motioned for the pitcher to continue before turning back to the stage.
"Alright Gold Arm now I need you to act embarrassed."
Gold Arm turned back to the camera with a frown. “I don’t get embarrassed.” He shot back.
Magnum thought for a moment then waved for Gold Arms attention again. He placed a finger on his lip, tipped his head ever so slightly to the side while his ears drooped down. He widened his eyes while shifting back and forth ever so slight.
Gold Arm flushed and the ears rotated again.
"Alright Gold Arm how about really angry."
He growled at the photographer. “I’ll show you angry!”
Gold Foot had caught on to what Magnum was doing, and decided to offer his assistance. He walked up next to Magnum and without warning grabbed the older mechs aft.
Magnum jumped and gave a small yelp.
"Hey!" Gold Arm roared as his ears shot up and back.
The photographer captured the full motion.
"Alright Gold Arm how about being surprised."
The pitcher gave a deep growl and was ready to rip the camera off the stand and shove it down the humans throat. Thats when Magnum suddenly trotted onto the stage his ears flipping playfully. He stopped next the young pitcher and began nuzzling his cheek while his ears playfully batted at him.
Gold Arm tensed and his ears flipped around in a mired of emotions.
The photographer captured all of them.
Then Magnum gave Gold Arm a sweet kiss on the cheek causing his ears to shoot strait up and almost bristle.
"Alright thats a rap. Good job, especially you Magnum. They might use that last one as a bonus picture."
Gold Arm stammered as he tried to protest the use of the picture. “Why did you do that?” He said to Magnum finally.
Magnum got an evil glint in his eye. “That was for last time.”
All the oil left Gold Arms face as he realized millions could see the photo.
He wasn’t as lucky as Magnum in just having embarrassing photo given to Magnum. It was published, and he spent several weeks fighting with his owner that he would not wear them during games. And no he would not react the photo at the end of every game they had with Silver Castle.
