either way here it is


First off, gggggod I frickin’ love fics about characters being mentally manipulated or altered into sleeper agents, as well as just characters who are double agents (Which probably explains why Saddleback is so perfectly poised for that trope) so if you know a good fic with that, shoot me a link, please, but either way, I can answer this here! (So i don’t clutter up my RP blog initially.

Also because I find talking about the development and evolution of characters super interesting! Like, I love asking people where their OCs come from, and I love making OCs with people’s help, because it’s such a different process for everybody?

For the most part, when making an OC, there’s usually a couple of different ways I do so. I like character design and worldbuilding so for me the process is pretty natural, you start with a handful of features you like and go wild from there, building up on them bit by bit until you start having a real character come out of it. This is really the core of OC building, for me, is knowing what you want in a character and making it into a full design.

But also, a lot of times it’s because you want a specific thing…but there’s no canon character that fills the niches you want. Or if there is, you don’t particularly like how that canon character is treated/viewed/shown in canon material. This winds up happening a lot with TFOCs for me because…well…shit, even with the patently ridiculous amount of Transformers Characters there are, I don’t always want to use a canon character or be constrained by canon.

(Even when I do use canon characters, it’s easy to notice that I generally make my own versions of them because, for one, I never feel like I’m using characters perfectly In Character if I do canon versions, but also because I just like messing around with variables way more than people who are better at writing characters as they appear) (Examples I particularly like here and here) (Or just that project where I’m literally making my own TF Universe over here)

For Saddleback, she actually was originally one of my first TFOCs, initially named Badge (ancient post seen here) who had a very different sort of personality, although some parts of it were perserved. I never really used her, and eventually, while going back through old OCs I found her design, loved it, gutted it out and repurposed it into the character she is now!

But where did Badge come from?

Badge initially had bits of Prowl and Jazz in her design, and seems to have largely stemmed from my desire to make that sort of classic “enforcer” type of cybertronian, while making them a small, curvy minibot (because listen I’m gonna be real honest here I like it when characters are short and round like me) and tinkering with design aspects. Throw in a hefty dose of making a “naughty cop” character, and she became a TFOC to tinker with.

Now, as a rebuilt character, Saddleback has also absorbed traits from TFA Arcee and TFA Shockwave (both of whom I also have RP accounts for, and played for some time) - becoming an Intel Ops agent with a penchant for getting the information she needs at whatever price, and in some ‘verses she has a life as a double agent amongst Decepticons (a sort of reversal of the Longarm/Shockwave thing)

Like a lot of canon characters I have fun putting her in different universes and, just like canon characters, I have a lot of fun tormenting her for entertainment.

So yeah, thanks for letting me blather about OCs and how they’re made for me. As far as I’m concerned, an OC (particularly OCs in various canons) are sort of the monster amalgamations of bits and bobs from media and other characters, made of headcanons that never panned out and design ideas you want to see used, all smushed together.

Promises, Both Kept and Unkept

pairing: philip hamilton x reader but also dad!john laurens x reader

word count: 2600

warnings: swearing, cheating

prompt/request: “um…hi, can you write something where the reader is john laurens’ daughter whose dating philip, but he cheats on her & laurens comforts her. ok thx :)” from @riiotkid

a/n: this one takes place in two different time periods - when they were kids (italics) and when they were dating. it’s kind of emo and sad but either way, enjoy! <3

“Kiddo, a new family moved in next door!”

You looked up from your coloring pages and frowned. “Da-ad,” you whined, “I’m coloring.”

Your father, John Laurens, laughed and shook his head, bending down to grab your hand. “Come on, Y/N, let’s just go say hi and then you can come back and color. It’ll be five minutes. I promise.”

You stuck your bottom lip out in a pout. “Fine,” you said stubbornly, getting up with reluctance and following your dad out of the front door.

It was a sunny afternoon in August; one that has stuck in your memory for years after. You remember every wavering blade of grass, every fluttering leaf on the trees surrounding your home. The sidewalk was hot, nearly steaming, and the breeze was little relief from the scorching light beating down on you. You looked up at your father to see him shading his eyes, and you repeated the action as you both approached your new neighbor’s house.

You saw him and everything changed.

He was so cute. Cuter than any of the boys in your middle school. His face was splattered with freckles, and his small eyes were shining and bright in the summer sun. As you walked up, a man was bending down to meet the small boy’s height, reaching to the back of his head and trying to pull the wild curls flowing down his back into a ponytail.

“Phil, if your hair gets in your face while you’re carrying boxes, you’re going to fall,” the older man said.

“Da-ad, I’m not gonna fall!” the boy, apparently Phil, complained.

“Phil. You’re going to fall and we both know it.”

Phil pouted the same as you had earlier and crossed his arms over his chest. “Fine.”

“Excuse me?” your father said as the two of you approached. “You’re Alexander, right?”

The man, whom your father just referred to as Alexander, stood up straight and smiled. “Yeah, that’s me,” he said with a nod. “You must be… John, was it? Eliza told me about you.”

Eliza? you thought to yourself. You didn’t know who that was.

“Yeah, I’m John,” your father replied, holding his hand out. Alexander shook it firmly. “This is Y/N.”

Alexander crouched down and held his hand out to you. “Y/N, is it?” he repeated, eyes sparkling. “Nice to meet you.”

“N-nice to meet you too,” you replied, shaking his hand.

“Do you guys need help movin’ in?” your father offered as Alexander stood up once more.

“Yeah,” Alexander responded, slipping his hands into the back pocket of his worn-out jeans. “That’d be great, man, thanks. Little Philip over here can only carry one box at a time, and Eliza’s setting everything up inside.”

“I can carry one and a half,” Philip corrected from the stairs, where he had collapsed during your introduction.

“I can help you!” you exclaimed, practically tripping over yourself as you ran over to the young boy. “I’m strong, just like my dad, see? Look at these muscles!”

Philip laughed and pushed himself off of the stairs. ”I have more muscles,” he said, rolling up the sleeve of his t-shirt and flexing his bicep. “See?”

“No, I do!” you protested, trying to flex yours even more.

“Well, let’s see who can carry the most boxes from the moving truck up the stairs and into the house,” Philip said. “Then we’ll know.”

“You’re on.”

Philip took your hand in his and together, the two of you ran over to the moving truck.

And things hadn’t been the same since.

Surely someone has done this before but either way, here are the IG posts from YOI’s ED and most importantly, their captions.

Also this post is hella long I’m sorry.

This has been sitting in editing for months, and I finally managed to finish it. I really hope you enjoy this one as much as a lot of you seemed to enjoy my last one [which can be found HERE]. Either way, it was a fun creative project and as with all things, you learn something each step of the way. Enjoy! 

EDIT copyright issues mean that you can’t watch the video on tumblr but you CAN watch it on YouTube on mobile or on a formal computer. You can watch it on YouTube HERE.


Consider: despite the differences in opinion between independent Ricks and Council Ricks, Rick’s self-loathing is so persistent in the central finite curve that “fuck you” has been replaced by “fuck me”.
