With seven bazillion people on the face of the earth, differences of opinions are simply inevitable. That’s okay, even radically different opinions on the big issues need not be a bad thing. So long as we try to respect each other and take time to remember that we’re all just people, there’s no reason we can’t get along.
Any Headcanons about a (either yandere or not)Knockout/Jack shipping? Most fics about that ship is written by someone named Shade penn :-D
(I recently started reading through their stuff and I absolutely love it! XD I never really thought about shipping them before, but know I’m hooked!) Tbh, I think the yandere version would be pretty much the same as the yandere family au, but with KO wanting Jack as a partner, not a son, so let’s talk about fluffy KO/Jack! ^___^
Knock Out and Jack form a sort of shaky friendship after the events of Predicons Rising, that steady grows stronger as Jack grows up and graduates high school.
Jack is hesitant to trust KO at first, but he’s never been one to hold a grudge. Besides, after the Autobots head back to Cybertron, he finds himself growing increasingly lonely without Arcee around.
Knock Out in turn still dislikes humans as a rule, but given that he no longer has Breakdown, he finds himself seeking out the company of Jack more and more often.
There’s a lot of teasing on Knock Out’s in the beginning, though not necessarily malicious. He often likes to pull up to the drive through at the KO Burger when Jack is working and mess with him through the drive through. (He loves how irritated Jack gets when he does it.)
At some point Knock Out begins letting Jack ride around town in him (provided he kicks off his shoes first). As he so aptly put it, it was “embarrassing” having to watch him ride in that broken down old fossil his mom uses.
Knock Out drags takes Jack to a bunch of those drive in movies around town. Jack one time joking asked if this was the medic’s idea of a date, to which Knock Out’s engine gave out an awkward, spluttering sound and was quiet for the rest of the evening. Jack didn’t push the subject.
Eventually Knock Out pitches the idea of racing together at the circuit. Sure, KO could win on his own, but having a human in the front seat makes things a whole lot easier. (Plus Jack would get all the money because what does he want with it?)
Jack and Knock Out become absolutely unstoppable on the track, holding the number 1 spot for nearly Jack’s entire high school career. By the time he’s ready to graduate, he practically has enough money to get a full ride to wherever he wants to go.
They’re relationship gets way more flirty after their racing partnership starts. Jack learns that KO’s big into banter, whether it be on the battle field or on the track. Even though he’s the one doing all the work, Knock Out’s always sure to let Jack know what a good team they make (not to mention how good he looks in all that leather.)
Car washes are a regular bonding exercise with them. Jack has Knock Out’s whole buff and polish routine memorized by now. Knock Out will intentionally make dirty noises as Jack rubs him down for the sole sake of getting him flustered (which it always does.)
As smooth and flirty as KO likes to think he is, all it usually takes from Jack is an accidental brush of his hand somewhere along Knock Out’s interior for the red sports car to turn into a shivering mess.
It’s not all just banter and street racing however. They’re both good for each other. Jack is a warm point of light in Knock Out’s life. Someone who builds him up instead of tearing him down - who saw the good in him when he wasn’t sure there was any left.
Likewise, Knock Out is 1000% there for Jack whenever he needs him. He constantly reminds Jack of how good he is, how smart, and handsome, and caring. “Jack, if someone like you can feel like they’re not worth anything, then what hope is there for the rest of us?” he usually adds with a soft, gentle smirk.
I was playing around with different Hogwarts house sortings for Tadashi, Hiro and the Nerd Crew when I slipped and fell into thoughts of an AU where Hiro is a squib. Consider:
Hiro and Tadashi are the children of two half-bloods, who died in some sort of magical accident
They move in with Aunt Cass, the non-magical half-sister of their father, who runs a cafe that caters to both magical and non-magical customers
San Fransokyo itself has a fairly high magical population for such a technologically advanced city, and even has a few schools for graduates of the primary magical schools of the United States interested in furthering their education
Tadashi shows signs of magic very, very early.
At first his parents think he might be a metamorphmagus, because he keeps accidentally altering the size of his ears (by the time he settles down, they aren’t sure if his ears had always been that big?)
Mostly he does charming things like turn leaves into butterflies and heal minor injuries
It takes ages before they break him of the habit of doing intentional, small pieces of magic in front of his non-magical classmates
When Hiro is born, there is no instant magic like Tadashi had shown, no literal blowing bubbles, or animating his stuffed toys. It’s actually a relief
They die before his continued lack of magic would have become suspicious.
By the time Tadashi is set to start school, Hiro is seven and they’re all sort of tip-toeing around the issue.
Tadashi still talks about how he can’t wait until they’re attending the same school, and Aunt Cass assures him that plenty of extraordinary witches and wizards were late bloomers. Hiro pretends he believes them.
His lack of magic makes him that much more eager to pour all his effort into what he is good at–math, science, robotics.
By the time Tadashi is in his third year, Cass doesn’t know what to do. It’s increasingly obvious that that magical accident they’d all been waiting for isn’t going to happen. She stops bringing up late bloomers and starts to tell him how proud she is of his accomplishments. How many ten years olds are freshmen in high school?
For his part, Hiro is bitter, because he’s scrawny and ten and would give anything to be able to turn himself invisible to escape from bullies, or have his brother beside him to heal his bruises like he used to when they were younger and he was still living at home
Hiro still thinks magic is cool, and he is still impressed with how much Tadashi can do and is learning, but he’s a genius. He knows that he’s not going to be part of that world and he hates it.
When he turns eleven, it’s summer break, so Tadashi is right there with him, waiting for an invitation they both know isn’t coming
Tadashi tries one last ditch attempt at comfort, some excuse that even messages in the magical world can get lost, and Hiro explodes. Nothing shatters into shards of glass. It’s all yelling and tears and clenched fists and accusations of abandonment and shame until Tadashi can coax him into his arms and tell him that it doesn’t matter, that Tadashi loves him all the same, and he’ll never leave him behind, not for all the magic in the world
(That doesn’t stop Hiro from deciding then and there that he’s going to be the first person to crack the science behind magic)
