Hi there~ Is there any way to make the Cons flustered?

There is if you play your cards right.  ;)  (I went with the TFP crew.  I hope that’s alright.)

Megatron:  It’d be pretty hard to get this mech flustered, tbh. He’s been around the block a few times, so to speak, so there’s not a whole lot that catches him off guard anymore. He’s really good at making you flustered though, raising an approving optic ridge or flashing you a dangerous smirk as he walks by.  However, if you were to express genuine affection towards him, without actually flirting, he might be a bit… at a loss for words.  He’s used to being feared, or being showered with meaningless praise from his lackeys, but to hear you say such wonderful things about him, and genuinely mean them… well it’s… nice…

Starscream:  It’s surprisingly easy to get this boy all hot and bothered, if you know how.  Being sweet won’t work with him like it would for Megs (he’ll just scoff and roll his optics), you gotta play dirty. ;)  Casually brush your hand across his wings while pretending to be reaching for something else.  Call him “Lord Starscream” while dragging out his name in a sensual purr.  He honestly won’t know what to do with himself.  And if you wanted to be particularly devious, stroke your fingers over the base of his wings while whispering “All hail, Starscream” in his audials.  (His cooling fans would probably break.)  

Soundwave:  You probably wouldn’t even know if he was feeling flustered or not.  You would have to pay extra close attention to his body language.  He’s more inclined to get flustered over you being cute, rather than if you tried to intentionally get him riled up.  You wouldn’t know it at the time, but he’d be silently fawning over how darn adorable you were.  Another way to fluster this mech would be to acknowledge all the hard work he does. Pay him a genuine compliment, and there’s a good chance his vents will kick in.  He might also flash a heart across his visor, if you two were in private.

Knock Out:  You really have your work cut out for you here. Knock Out’s a good looking mech, and he knows it.  He’s pretty much heard and seen it all.  He doesn’t get flustered; he gets other people flustered.  And oh boy, does this mech know how to get you hot under the collar! All he has to do is shoot you a devilish wink and a smile and you’ll be flushing up to your ears.  However, there is one thing you can do to get him to drop his defenses.  The next time he starts going on about himself, tell him sincerely, and without any sarcasm that you think he’s pretty remarkable.  He’ll kind of stop and just… freeze for a second, before coughing and awkwardly changing the subject.  (That wasn’t a blush by any chance, was it Doctor?)

Breakdown:  It is so ridiculously easy to get this guy to blush, it’s almost funny (scratch that, it’s definitely funny!)  Whistle at him as he walks by.  Sway your hips and shoot him the smolder when you enter a room.  “Hey, handsome.  Looking good today.  Fresh wax?” If you “accidentally” drop something, bend down at pick it up… slowly.  You’ll hear his cooling fans kick in from the other side of the room, while he tries (unsuccessfully) to cover them with a cough.  Depending on how devious you feel like being, you might shoot him an innocent look of concern.  “Breakdown, what’s the matter?  Are you not feeling well?  Maybe you should go see Knock Out?”  He’ll flush and practically bolt out of the room.  Knock Out thinks it’s hilarious.  (He’s taught you well.)

Dreadwing:  He’s definitely an old fashioned gentlemech, so any flirting you do definitely gets him just a bit flustered.  In fact, the less intentionally seductive you are, the more likely he is to get all hot and bothered.  You decide to dress up a bit that day?  He flushes at how pretty you look.  You burst out laughing at something random?  He can’t handle how cute you are!  Compliments are definitely another good way to get him to blush. Tell him how impressive he was during that last mission.  Tell him how strong and brave (and handsome) he is.  His entire frame overheats at the unexpected praise.

Airachnid:  She has an unfair habit of turning everything you try back onto you.  If you start flirting with her, her optics will gleam wickedly and she’ll immediately reciprocate, purring scandalous advances and praise into your ears until you feel your face go beet red.  If you try to flirt with her physically (swaying your hips, gentle touches, etc.) she’ll snag you in a thin strand of web and pull you close.  “If you wanted me that badly, my dear, you could have just asked.”  (That’s not fair, Airachnid!  You were the one supposed to get all flustered!)

Shockwave:  He’s not the type to get flustered.  It’s almost not even worth the effort.  He won’t even realize that you’re flirting with him at first.  “Why are you winking?  Is there something in your eye?  Do you require assistance?”  Eventually, you’ll get frustrated at his lack off awareness and straight-up tell him what going on.  His optic widens ever so slightly and his audial fins twitch upward like a curious kitten.  “Oh,” he says simply, clearly surprised, and then goes back to whatever he was doing without pushing the issue.  You smirk triumphantly.  It’s not the reaction you were hoping for, but you’ll take what you can get.

Imagine a convo like this during the Orion Pax arc...
  • Orion: You... used Dark Energon? How?
  • Megatron: I... inserted it directly into my own spark, then I--
  • Orion: Hold on. Wait.
  • Orion (to Soundwave): Did he really...?
  • Soundwave: *nods*
  • Orion: Oh Primus, Creator of all, what THE FRAG were you thinking?!?
  • Megatron: *scoff* You don't think I could have handled the power?
  • Orion: YOU COULD HAVE DIED! I don't give a scrap heap about whether you could control it or not. Megatron, you placed the very essence of death and destruction into your spark chamber!
  • Orion: And what would have happened then? If you had ceased to function?
  • Orion: You constantly belittle Starscream's command-- publicly. It's clear to everyone who follows you-- and possibly our enemy-- that you don't want Starscream to lead! You waste his time and talents with the promise of leadership opportunities...
  • Megatron: *growls* I promise NOTHING.
  • Orion: ...Even when he performs his duties amicably and efficiently, you give him no reward. What message does that send to your troops?
  • Megatron: His reward is his life! The fact that I allow that traitorous mech to even function on my ship... he should be grateful.
  • Orion: ...So you don't actually trust him, or LIKE HIM enough to be a true heir to the Decepticons.
  • Megatron: No. I do not trust him.
  • Orion: Alright, then what about Soundwave?
  • Soundwave: *stops his work and quietly excuses himself. Nope, not doing this today.*
  • -- DOORS CLOSE --
  • Megatron: What about Soundwave? You know him too, he has been here since the beginning.
  • Orion: He may have been here the longest but he is not meant for as large a role as leader... and he knows it too.
  • Megatron: Soundwave is my most loyal. I trust him completely. The only reason I don't have him as my second is so that we can BOTH keep an optic on Starscream. Get to your POINT, Orion!
  • Orion: You disappeared for 3 years, leaving Starscream to care for and coordinate your armies.
  • Orion: He does a fine job continuing your expansion whether you like it or not, and even takes out a member of the primary Autobot squadron.
  • Orion: Energon production is not up significantly, but it's not down either-- likely the best anyone could have done in times like these.
  • Orion: But then you return, beating and tossing him this way and that, barely even acknowledging his work!
  • Orion: Your troops see this, and any respect Starscream has garnered during his time commanding has gone out the window.
  • Orion: And you MUST know this, somewhere in your processor. And I know you are also aware that Soundwave could not have filled your pedes in your absence, otherwise you would have specified as such.
  • Orion: If you had died, Starscream could not resume his command after you laid waste to everyone's opinion of him. Soundwave could not have taken over because he simply could not handle it.
  • Orion: There would be a power vacuum. Any and all strong Decepticons within a few stellar cycles journey from here would compete for dominance, dividing your forces. The message would be lost... your armies, scattered.
  • Orion: The Autobots... would WIN.
  • Megatron: ....
  • Megatron: *gets up to loom over Orion/Optimus*
  • Megatron: You seem to have a lot to say for someone who has essentially been in stasis for millions of vorns.
  • Orion: *huff* All I'm saying is that you aren't using your intellect and prospective reasoning! You keep acting on your first instinct instead of thinking things through. What happened to the strategist? The gladiator with a plan?
  • Megatron: ...
  • Orion: ... talk to me. What is it about the Autobots that make you lose your focus?
  • Megatron: ...
  • Megatron: *knocks hand away* We will discuss this later, Orion.
  • Orion: ... do you even know what it's doing to your spark now? I doubt you can fully purge Dark Energon, as energy can neither be created nor destroyed.
  • Orion: *reaches out* Please... as your friend, I am asking you to seek medical attention... if only so we can better understand what must happen now.
  • Megatron: ...
  • Megatron: ... I have things I must attend to.

TFP Megatron and Arcee headcanons?

( Melly’s Mod Notes: Eeeey my first Transformers Prime request! I’ll be doing only SFW headcanons for the two since it’s not specified if NSFW was desired. If you want, just shoot in another ask and I’ll get to work on that. )


✦ Does the human want to know why they’re the constant target of attempted kidnappings? It’s because Megatron has a thing for them. Clearly that means the best solution to this is to get his servos on the human.

✦ What draws him to this organic, this little being whose entire lifespan will be a mere footnote compared to his? He isn’t sure and that’s what vexes him. Something about the human’s smile and the way their eyes light up whenever they laugh causes his vents to hitch and his spark to ache. It’s a weakness, they are a weakness. A weakness he’s willing to embrace. Provided he gets the human and keeps them to himself forever and ever.

✦ If Optimus becomes the guardian of the human since someone needs to look out for them, considering the attempts to capture them and all, expect the Decepticons’ efforts to get them to double. Megatron is a petty, jealous ‘con when it comes to Optimus and will not take well to the news of the Prime getting closer to his human.

✦ He confesses his feelings in the most overdramatic, villainous way possible. When a competent Decpeticon finally captures the human - Soundwave, most likely - Optimus leads the team in getting the human back. Megatron and Optimus duke it out and are generally yelling at each other, exchanging barbs before Megatron starts talking about how he’s lost so much to Optimus already, there’s no way he’ll allow him to take away his human.

✦ So the cat’s out of the bag and the human is out of the cage after Optimus is able to knock down Megatron long enough to get them and have them escape. Naturally the human is unsure of how to feel about this situation. Not every day you get a warlord to fall in love with you but they also have a warlord in love with them. Team Prime and the human are going to have a long chat about this when they finally escape and Megatron goes back to plotting.


✦ At first the human will think that Arcee doesn’t like them at all with how she’s aloof around them and doesn’t want to even speak with them. Every time they try to approach her for something, she waves them off or hands them over to Bumblebee or Smokescreen. (Sometimes literally. She. Just picks them up and hands them to a confused ‘bot as she walks to somewhere else. At least she’s very careful when handling them.) It worries the human a lot because… Did they do something wrong? They were only trying to help her out like polish her armour and get her energon and little things like that. Maybe she thought they were being condescending or something…?

✦ It’ll take Jack pulling the human aside to explain hahahaha no. That isn’t the case at all. Arcee likes them a lot but is scared of opening herself up again considering what happened to her last two partners. Hearing this will help strengthen to become closer with Arcee, now refusing to let her push them away. She gets frustrated by their efforts, at first, before they start to worm their way into their spark. She doesn’t realise it until one day she sees the human laughing with Raf and paling around with Miko and finds the sound of their laughter beautiful and their smile mesmerising and. Oh no. Oh no. Oh no she caught feelings.

✦ Confessing will have to be done on the human’s part and they need to be serious about it. No joking around, no attempts to pull ‘haha kidding and haha no for real I have feelings for you’ - They gotta show Arcee that they want to be with her despite their differences in a lot of things, that they’re willing to make this work because they love her and want to give her the world since her smile is one of the most dazzling things they’ve ever seen.

✦ Very protective after they officially become a couple. She doesn’t want her human to get hurt and she has Jack to watch out for. Will run herself ragged to protect both of them and it’ll take both humans to get her to not do that. Her human will do what they can to help her unwind and relax when she returns to the base after she’s been out on a mission. Which includes kissing her faceplates and cuddling sessions. Very important stuff.

✦ Loves to flirt and tease their human as their relationship strengthens and grows. Witty banter and a flirty back-and-forth is expected now, to the point Jack groans and leaves the room since the couple don’t seem interested in getting a room anytime soon but no one is really complaining about the change in relationship Arcee has with the human. If anything they’re happy for her. She starts to open up again, starts to loosen up again and Optimus can’t help but watch the lively conversation Arcee has with her human with a small smile on his faceplates. It’s been a long time since anyone has heard her genuinely laugh.


mood suddenly dropped the other night and I felt Heckin Awful so I watched some TFA to try to cheer myself up, the ep I watched had Shockwave in it so naturally that made me wanna draw my Disquette a bunch!

plus some bonus Soundwaves bc I apparently can’t draw one without the other lol

redacted-metallum  asked:

Tbh I sat up at night once and went "TFP Soundwave is nonverbal and autistic and nobody can tell me otherwise" and then I went to sleep completely satisfied with my brain for the moment

@shocktrooper-redstreaker @aphobic-soundwave @toothlessloveshiccup @agatharights tagging you guys since you all showed particular interest

but let’s talk about both TFP and G1 Soundwave? because pretty much all versions of Soundwave are strongly represented as autistic but those two are the strongest imo

and before anyone says “AUTISM CANT EXIST IN ROBOTS / CYBERTRONIANS / BLAH BLAH” well here’s a canonically autistic transformer!

Please note that this is mostly from my experience as an autistic person. There are MANY symptoms of autism and not every autistic person has them. Every autistic person is different!

If you want to learn more about autism (though I wouldn’t use these sources to write an autistic character – as with that, I would ask advice from actual autistic people), here  are  some  sources.

Also: remember to never use Autism Speaks as a resource/ref. for anything relating to autism! They literally want autistic people dead via eugenics lmao!

G1 (probably the most autistic imo):

  • he’s nonverbal. in G1, he’s shown to be almost exclusively nonverbal or reserved with his speech but then laugh and talk with Megatron, a person he’s comfortable with – autistic people (such as myself) can be quite talkative when around people we’re comfortable with.
  • he’s “socially awkward” - autism literally impedes people in social ability.
  • doesn’t understand most forms of verbal humor. we autistic people have a hard time detecting sarcasm from literal truth, metaphors, and other forms of humor. this is shown lots when the bots/cons make jokes and he’s entirely unresponsive or deadpan. LITERALLY HE ONLY LAUGHS TWICE IN THE ENTIRE G1 SERIES.
    Humor needs to be obvious and straight to the point for Soundwave. He laughs at more physical and obvious forms of humor such as when Starscream shoots at the “robotic plant” and his null ray beam bounces back to hit him and make him fall on his ass. Or when he’s kicking Blaster’s ass.
    Actually those two sources of evidence are the same video just at different times but yeah those are the only two times I can honestly remember that Soundwave’s laughed in canon despite the MANY jokes both the bots and cons have made around him.
  • he has motor skill difficulty. couldn’t find videos for this one so bear with me here. Soundwave in G1 has shown many times to have difficulty in motor skills. you can argue that it was just bad animation but shut up let us have this.
    If you watch G1, whenever the cons are making an escape, pay attention to how Soundwave runs in the bg. He’s clumsy and he almost trips a lot. He runs into things that he could easily jump over. HELL HE EVEN TRANSFORMS AT RANDOM SOMETIMES DURING ESCAPES LIKE WHY YOU DO THAT??
  • He’s monotone. Yeah yeah this is just a “soundwave trait” but lmao listen. Autistic people are terrible with our sense of voice inflections. We’re either too loud or too monotone and “emotionless” with our voices. Do I even have to source “evidence” for this bullshit?
  • he speaks in extremely specific ways. autistic people, when partially nonverbal (which G1 soundwave is), will speak in very specific ways. most of the time it sounds forced or awkward. usually we’re just trying to make sense of things and how to put words into coherent sentences.
    Soundwave speaks awkwardly. This is a simple fact.
    Even in utter panic he still speaks in his peculiar way.
  • he has huge empathy and emotion issues. autism effects people’s perception of emotions and empathy to the point where an autistic person can be blunt and have little to no sense of empathy or emotions (like Soundwave). it’s where one of the ableist myths that “autistic people are emotionless robots” comes from. (on the contrary, however, people with autism can also be hyper-emotional or hyper-empathetic and feel things to a huge extent - which IDW Soundwave also has going on whenever he lets his empath abilities loose).


  • he’s nonverbal. like do we even need to debate this one. all soundwave’s are nonverbal and rarely speak.
  • he’s “socially awkward” - autism literally impedes people in social ability.
  • SPECIAL INTERESTS!!!!! TFP Soundwave is KNOWN to be a genius with anything tech related. You could easily argue that this is a special interest regarding tech things.
    (Special Interests (SI for short) are more than just having an intense interest in something. SI’s are specific to autism and mean that an autistic person is hyperfixating on something that interests them. This can lead to an autistic person knowing pretty much everything about a single subject (such as Soundwave with tech stuff) )
  • you could say that he visually stims with the lights on his visor. maybe people think he’s working but really he’s just stimmy. in case you didn’t know, stimming is a repetitive motion or behavior that autistic people (and ADHD people) do in order to relieve stress, focus, etc.
  • he has an “unusual gait” when walking which is actually one of the common traits of autism. he’s slouched and hunched all the time, only straightening out when Megatron is around (probably to show that he’s paying attention).
  • hyperfixates. not only on details to the point where he nitpicks what people say and replays recordings to them if he catches something, but also to the point where he hyperfixates on work almost obsessively. you could call this loyalty but my autistic ass calls it autism lmao.
  • He also has huge empathy and emotion issues, as explained above.

so yeah TLDR Soundwave is hugely represented to be autistic and no one can take autistic soundwave away from me

anonymous asked:

Can I get some headcanons where Mtmte Megatron watches some g1 episodes w/ his s/o? Or maybe they would be considered old documentaries?

( Melly’s Mod Notes: Aaaaah this is such a cute prompt!! I heard of the discussions about some old G1 episodes being documentaries and I love this idea so much let’s do that. Hope you don’t mind my take of the G1 cartoons as documentaries headcanon, anon! )

✦ It’s actually Whirl who makes the suggestion of watching the documentaries. This occurs when Rewind does his usual round of voting for what should be aired for movie night, taking suggestions from the crowd. The ‘bot does it mostly to get a rise out of Megatron and it almost works with how the co-captain almost shoots the idea down- Then he sees the liaison is curious and intrigued by what they just heard. The light in their eyes and the pleased smile on their lips makes him hesitate. They look so excited and happy… In the end, he helplessly watch his human vote for it and everyone else vote for it since he didn’t stop the liaison. It’s a landslide win and Megatron is suffering.

✦ Apparently the ‘documentaries’ were made after the war was declared to be over, something made by a small independent group of entertainers who are Autobot-aligned on Earth by both humans and Cybertronians. The documentaries are mostly used to promote the Autobot ideals by making them appear heroic and brave while adopting human activities like basketball to show they were approachable and willing to learn the culture of humans and to make the Decepticons look weak and childish with all their constant bickering and constant defeats. The independent nature of the group making this does explain the strange quality and pacing of the works - The crew and cast involved in this production are literally making these week by week which is a lot to ask. Why they set it in the late 90s or so is a mystery. To avoid getting sued…?

✦ It’s a full house when movie night comes around. Rewind plays the episodes out of order, mainly choosing the episodes that sound interesting to watch like Fire in the Sky or Prime Target. Despite some reservations and worries Megatron and a few others had, it does end up becoming a fun romp for everyone as the episodes go on. Most of the documentaries aren’t even based on real events, mostly rumours and hearsay of what happened on the planet, and it’s clear the cast and crew put their heart into this. Everyone laughs at the actor’s attempts to copy Optimus’ heroic and stoic nature and it makes him look like a Dad™ instead. Every time the theme song comes up, a lot of the ‘bots (and the human) sing along with how catchy it is. When The Girl Who Loved Powerglide comes up, all optics are suddenly pointed out at Megatron and the liaison’s direction.

✦ At some point during the documentary watching, there’s a shot of a desert at night and suddenly Megatron starts doing the Cybertronian equivalent of sweating and suggesting they skip this part because it’s so boring, so uninteresting. No need to see any of this at all, everyone, really!!! Before Rewind can ask him what’s his malfunction, the infamous scene of him and the other Decepticons getting wasted in the middle of nowhere pops up. It lasts for only roughly a minute and a half but it has Rodimus is laughing so hard he needs to be sent to the medbay. Megatron is unable to look anyone in the optic or eye when the liaison asks if that’s just Autobot propaganda to make him look ridiculous or if that all really happened. He says nothing. He’s suffering.

Soundwave/shockwave :D (for the meme)

(Let’s do TFP because why not? XD)

Who said “I love you” first:  Soundwave.  The first time, he tried flashing a little heart on his visor but it seemed to go over Shockwave’s helm.  It took him another week to work up the courage to piece together the right audio clips to tell him in person.

Who would have the other’s picture as their phone background:  Neither.  It doesn’t mean they don’t love each other, they just have more stylized or hobby oriented backgrounds.

Who leaves notes written in fog on the bathroom mirror:  Not very often, but sometimes Soundwave will draw little hearts or smiley faces on the mirror.

Who buys the other cheesy gifts:  Neither.  They’re not super big on gift giving.  They both tend to show their love by doing things for the other person, like bringing them energon after a long day, or helping fill in a late report.

Who initiated the first kiss:  Starscream (on accident).  He got so tired of their painfully awkward flirting that he screeched at them to get a berth and get it over with so he didn’t have to deal with their scrap anymore.  (It seemed like a very… logical suggestion…)

Who kisses the other awake in the morning:  Neither.  Even if they had mouths, they’re not super into that sort of thing, though Soundwave does like to curl his tentacles around Shockwave for lazy morning cuddles. 

Who starts tickle fights:  Soundwave tried once, but quickly realized there are just certain things you should never try with a mech like Shockwave.

Who asks who if they can join the other in the shower:  Why would they do that?  Showers are for cleaning?

Who surprises the other in the middle of the day at work with lunch:  Both.  It’s one of the biggest ways they say “I love you” to each other without really saying it.

Who was nervous and shy on the first date:  Both.  It was almost a non event until one of them suggested a “working date”, then it was like all that awkwardness suddenly melted away.

Who kills/takes out the spiders:  I think we’re all aware of how well Soundwave takes out spiders.  ;)

Who loudly proclaims their love when they’re drunk:  Good luck even getting these two drunk.
