Could we have more starscream pitying the sad human (in that human pet scenario)?
Starscream (Transformers: Prime)
Starscream had been watching you whenever he was in the same room. It was subtle- a simple glance out of the corner of the eye, a head slightly turned- but enough for you to notice. You had all the time in the world to scrutinize the area, while you hold back shivers as Megatron stroked across your back.
The Seeker sneered, turning his gaze back to the monitor. He couldn’t stand seeing your dead stare anymore. It’s simply disturbing.
The more he watched you, the more he actually /pitied/ you- this weak creature that only deserved to be killed. He didn’t feel the need to help you. He valued his own life more than his morals- what little he had left, anyway.
He hated the feeling in his chest plate, hated how your monotone voice haunted him. He can still hear your dry, cracking chuckle. He despised it. He despised /you/.
And yet… he finds himself coming to your cage, when Megatron is away.
He loathed you- the novelty that his leader obsesses over. He can’t stand the feeling in his spark when you’re around.
But, when you finally speak to him… he realizes how alike you two are- trapped with Megatron against your will. Used for his own gain, abused and neglected.
Perhaps… that’s why he despises you so much. You remind him too much of himself, and he hates it.
Yeah, I don’t get why the Doctor seemed to think the colonists deserved to live with (and pay rent to) the robots that thoughtlessly killed their family members? The whole thing that made the robots horrifying is that they forced you to smile while grieving, so to have the Doctor turn around and reinforce that at the end was really sinister.
Oh yeah, thanks for putting it into words!
When a human killed one of the robots, I thought that would be the key: the robots around would start grieving their friend, others would kill them for it and start a chain reaction that would quickly wipe them out just like they killed the humans. Poetic justice.
Plus, the memory wipe… If they’re not just malfunctioning machines we can turn off, if they’re alive, the robots are responsible for their actions and must answer for them. And what’s the point of doing that anyway if you’re going to immediately talk about what they did in their presence? What, they can’t hear you unless you directly address them?
what she means:
