Looking after sparklings can get rough sometimes. I don’t remember exactly when I first got this crack, but uh, it’s not always been as noticeable. Oh and it doesn’t help much that it’s right over where my mask would usually clip on-
question about your last Vehicon story: I noticed for AA00 you used a singular they. Is AA00 gender fluid?
AA-00’s pronoun is ‘they’ because they think humans are stupid they don’t identify with either of our human genders. Their actual gender is Munidor. That’s right. Headcanon’d TF genders. (if you’ve been following me for awhile you’ve been linked to that post at least fifty times :U sorry I’m not sorry I love Scobble’s three genders headcanon) Problem is, English doesn’t have a pronoun for Munis so AA-00 just uses ‘they.’
So technically the answer is no, they do have a singular gender. It’s just not a human one. Although, I really like having little hints about the Vehicons not quite grasping how human gender works in my story- hence a ‘Con called Wendy who uses ‘he’ or a ‘Con called Rudy who uses ‘she.’ So using ‘they’ for AA-00 just seemed to make sense for the character. Also, there virtually no characters who don’t use he or she pronouns so I thought I’d have that nice little bit of inclusion… even if explaining it away like this makes it not so inclusive anymore… Also AA-00 is kind of an asshole anyway so you probably don’t wanna relate to them… soooooo I might’ve mucked that up… oops. sorry. :U
Has AA-00 ever actually gotten into serious trouble from the higher ups?
Yes, they’ve been disciplined before. Mostly just when they or the Vehicons fail to deliver on an important mission. AA-00 usually takes the blame for when that happens. Not because of any self-sacrificing nonsense, but because they prefer to discipline the Vehicons in their own more effective way, not in the violent, sociopathic way that Megatron seems to enjoy.
I don't want to be That Person - but I've actually noticed quite a few authors on both ffnet and AO3 use your Vehicon command structure (in particular AA-00) in their fics. Is this okay to do? (all honesty here, i'm also asking for myself, because i've had a fic brewing in my head for a while and your vehicon command structure makes /sense/ in ways I would want to use)
????? are people are writing things with AA-00 in them??? oh my gosh that is FANTASTIC and 9000% OKAY WITH ME. And yeah dude, I’m super okay with people using my Vehicon structures. They are for sharing, after all. And all I ask is links so i can read it. Links please I NEED LINKS :U
ps those of you interested, THIS is my Vehicon structure in excruciating detail with examples and junk
Would AA-00 even blink at Five Nights are Freddy's?
Doubtful. AA-00 has to deal with more insane, scary bullshit on a daily basis than that security guard does… Like Megatron. And Starscream. Also, they would probably find the idea of a human being murdered by a bunch of animatronics to be highly amusing.
My favorite thing about AA-00…? Hmmmm. Well, it’s really fun writing AA-00 because they’re just angry all the time. And they yell a lot and are just generally unpleasant to be around. But while I write, I keep in mind that their top priority is always the safety of their Vehicons. So all that anger and strictness is their version of “tough love.” AA-00 just wants you to stay out of trouble so you don’t get BLOWN UP YOU IDIOTS!! NOW GET BACK TO WORK! Hehh. Yeah. So I like that AA-00 acts as parent to all the Vehicons. The mean parent that you don’t go to when you want something. The kind that makes you bounce a quarter off your sheets and goes over your dusting job with a white glove. That’s my AA-00~
