There was a moment in time when I thought I might not make it and I thought I was completely alone. Then I began meeting a lot of people on the way who were going through the same thing that I was going through. And what happens that is often swept under the rug is that when people come out, and when kids come out, they are met with extremely harsh reactions and those reactions leave scars. And my hope, in sharing my story, is that we get to realize that our scars are shared and we can hopefully begin this healing process together. I don’t feel like I’m sharing just my truth. I feel like I’m sharing our truth.

Maggie has gotten in the habit of waiting up for alex because she knows her job is more dangerous than her own and that worries her. So on the night alex gets abducted, maggie is just sitting on the couch waiting for the door to swing open and as minutes turn to hours she gets this sinking feeling in her gut that it never will.
Headcanons for idw megatron who falls for a human (before he became an autobot).
IDW Megatron (before he became an Autobot)
-Is confused as heck. An organic??? How??? How did they even get to Cybertron?
-Eventually he just goes with it and pushes it to the back of his mind. Until he actually sees you out on the battlefield. You’re taking cover and barking directions into the air as you point in several different directions. The bot with you is heavily damaged and you’re doing everything to keep them alive while you await backup. He leaves you alone, wondering if the organic his spark is drawn to can preform under fire.
-You do. And he has to admit begrudgingly that you preformed… admirably.
-Eventually he loses sight of you as he gets further into the war. Then he sees you again. This time you appear older, more battle worn and by the most noninvasive scans he can preform he can tell you’ve got quite a few battle scars under the biosuit.
-This time he confronts you.
-You surprise him and stand your ground even as he strides towards you with his fusion canon primed and aimed directly at you. You refuse to back down in the face of certain death and Megatron admits he cannot figure out if it’s because you’re incredibly brave…or incredibly stupid.
-Turns out it’s a little bit of both as you tell him straight to his faceplate you do not fear him. He warns you he’s killed mechs for less. A sneer is what he receives before he’s dodging fire from incoming backup. Her can hear your voice taunting him as he moves for better cover.
-A blaze of glory is the best way to burn out.
-Now he’s really interested.
-There are more meetings. More banters. You even convince one of the mechs on base to configure heavy duty weapons into the biosuit you had to wear on the battlefield.
-Next encounter ended with Megatron having a smoking aft and you laughing your ass off as he watched you in amused shock. Soundwave doesn’t question it, Stascream knows not to. There is gossip.
-You start trying to meet him when you go out there. He’s wearing a knowing smirk that you just can’t stand (oh hush up who the flip do you think you’re foolin?) as you swagger up to him.
-It’s confusing, but the two of you somehow make it work. You relate it to a romantic tragedy from back on earth and relay it to the warmonger. He assures you gruffly he would not be as foolish as the male human.
-You try to take comfort in that as you two hang out in your nightly rendezvous point. Often it’s silent, other times it’s him complaining of the incompetence of his soldiers. You could be using these moments to steal information. He could as well. The both of you don’t because neither of you are willing to give up the cause you live for.
-No, you’re both content to live in the moment. When the war’s not happening and it’s just the two of you in the night in each others company.
