Honestly Im such a slut for cybertronian culture, do you have any more cybertronian culture headcanons to share?
Cybertronian Culture Headcanons
I have so many bonding garment headcanons just
give me a sec.
Okay, so some of the major ones are the Kaon
Trail and the Iaconian Spark Veil. The Kaon Trail is like this huge flowing
mass of different fabrics, colors, ruffles, ribbons, ect. all lovingly stitched
together. Traditionally it represents the combination of events in the life of
the mech/femme that brought them to be bonded. The Iaconian Spark Veil is this
delicate lightly colored lace that covers the chassis of the to-be-bonded. It
usually has a very bright solid fabric with more organic patterns just over the
spark and will sometimes have bead ropes. It mostly represents the devotion and
loyalty one has to their to-be-bonded.
There’s a small subsect of Cybertronians called
Star Dancers. They believe that sparks are the literal incarnation of stars and
that Solus Prime, not Prima, was the first Cybertronian with a true spark. They
always portray stars to have eight rays to represent The Original Eight Enlightened
who were given Truth by Solus Prime and spread it, forming the Star Dancers.
The death of a nearby star is an occasion of mass grief, as an unborn brother
has died, and the birth of a new one is something to be celebrated with days of
Sky Dancers are a group of Star Dancers/former
Star Dancers who professionally preform traditional and/or original takes on
Sky Dancing for the entertainment of large crowds. The staple of this style is
the prevalent use of transformation midair, subsequent freefall, and last
minute upward flight. They usually have very bright paint jobs/biolights to
make themselves stand out from the dark sky and to make themselves look more
akin to the bright glowing stars.
Random thought, in tf fannon, and I think cannon, bots don’t have bones.
Where then does Bonecrusher’s name come from? Is it a translated version of his real name? I mean ppl say bots have ‘struts’ so would he be ‘Strutcrusher’?
Do some robot names not translate well? I mean ‘Jazz’ is also a name that is based on human stuff? did he choose that name on earth? did it sound like his cybertronian name enough and have a reference to music so he used it?
‘“I’m looking for something specific.” Rodimus said, gesturing impatiently for him to enter the hab.
“Does it have to do with making yourself feel better about how pathetic you are?” Whirl asked as he stepped around Rodimus and into the hab suite.
As soon as the door clicked closed and locked, Rodimus flared his armor and let the heat trapped behind his plates hiss out. The sound was surprisingly loud in the enclosed space and Whirl quirked one side of his optic in response.
“Oh.” Whirl said, beginning to giggle. “Well frag, Roddy. What took you so long? I’m just full to the brim with fresh, hot, steaming humiliation, and I’d be happy to dump it all over you.”
“I might need something more than that.” Rodimus said, leaning back against the wall and regarding Whirl with his optics narrowed and brow furrowed ever so slightly.
