LL#3 Baby Theory??
After LL#3, I’ve had a bit of a far fetched theory brewing up in the back of my head?? It’s my first time sharing a theory publicly so I’m pretty nervous.
Anyways here are my thoughts on why I think that, somewhere along the way, the crew will successfully bring about the creation of the first protoform in millions of years:
Two of the three plot lines presented in Issue 3 dwelled on the topic of “new cybertronian life”, both with nine-of-twelve going into detail about the senate’s (and then the council’s) “unnatural” method of making new cybertronians, and more interestingly enough:
The reveal of Anode as a ‘blacksmith’ and what the snowflake-shaped item is
Two main components are needed to make a protoform: a spark and the sentio metallico. So far we have the latter of the two components.. but I believe, and this is just speculation, that we might already have the other half - a new spark.
And where would that new spark be??
Well, what if (and this where the far-fetched part of this theory comes in) what Rung coughed up earlier in issue 1.. was actually a tiny, ‘newly born’ spark?
At a closer look, whatever Rung coughed up seems to emit a very similar glow to that of his spark in the previous panel:
and maybe having the ‘brightest spark’ means you have enough left over to maybe even.. make a whole desperate, new spark?? I don’t know, honestly.
[EDIT: Another thought?? Maybe the deep, agonizing, and unfiltered grief Rung is feeling over the loss of someone close to him.. incited the new spark, new life, to be made in its stead.. ?]
But if this holds any ground, and that is a fresh new baby spark Rung just coughed up, then the possibility for a “naturally born” cybertronian runs very high, specially with the presence of the sentio metallico Anode has kept on her for the last five hundred years, nine moths, fourteen days, and six or so hours.
and the fact that her job used to be exactly that: helping new sparks find their shape through their sentio metallico.
Also with the thought of a tiny baby bot joining the crew/
But yeah that’s all I got. I’m not really all that good at this as the lot of you, but if you have anything else to add I’d be more than glad to hear of it <3
