morning tailgate

anonymous asked:

Any cywhirlgate headcanons you want to share?

As a matter of fact, I do! However could you tell?? (∗´꒳`)

  • Whirl has been crushing on Cyclonus since the beginning. I say crushing… Whirl fell hard. Like ‘you saved me from myself, you’re fun to fight with, I actually kind of respect you’ hard. 
  • But, you know, Cyclonus and Tailgate obviously had a thing for each other. Whirl wanted Cyclonus to be happy. Plus, Tailgate wasn’t so bad. Cute, too. Yea, they’d be good together. So he made it his mission to get them together. 
  • But then something amazing happened. Cyclonus and Tailgate wanted to have a relationship with him. They sat down with him and asked if it’d be okay to court him. And after making sure it wasn’t some sort of cruel joke, he said yes.
  • Whirl often has trouble recharging, so Tailgate and Cyclonus sing him to sleep. He loves the sound of their voices…it’s calming.
  • It’s not unusual for Cyclonus to get a call from Swerve telling him his boyfriends are causing a ruckus. They tend to pick fights when they’re drunk. Cyclonus tries to be mad at them, but when they cuddle up to him he just can’t. 
  • I just really love this ship and have so many feelings about it. ;~; They are so good for each other. They’re protective of each other and Cy and Whirl seem so harsh but they’re all so sweet and soft to each other… I cry 

anonymous asked:

cygate for that ship ask thing? whichever questions you want!

I’m avoiding studying so lets say…all of them  

  • who hogs the duvet: Tailgate, he’s small and gets cold super easy
  • who texts/rings to check how their day is going: Surprisingly, Cyclonus. Tailgate forgets a lot but Cyclonus is a worrier and has to check in constantly
  • who’s the most creative when it comes to gifts: Tailgate by far 
  • who gets up first in the morning: Tailgate. Cyclonus will sleep till noon
  • who suggests new things in bed:Also Tailgate. Cyclonus is shy
  • who cries at movies: CYCLONUS but he’ll deny it till he dies
  • who gives unprompted massages: Tailgate. He’s very touchy
  • who fusses over the other when they’re sick: Both of them. Tailgate is “invincible” and refuses to admit he’s sick and Cyclonus likes to pretend he’s fine so they both go after each other when one’s sick
  • who gets jealous easiest: Neither are particularly jealous and before someone says Getaway there were warning signs that had Cyc worried
  • who has the most embarrassing taste in music: Cyclonus simply for the novelty of his playlist going from very pretentious tetrahexian classical to Ariana Grande. Whirl won’t let them live it down
  • who collects something unusual: Cyclonus seems to be collecting minibots SO
  • who takes the longest to get ready: Theyre even because Tailgate can’t focus and Cyclonus wont get out of bed
  • who is the most tidy and organised: Cyclonus 
  • who gets most excited about the holidays:Tailgate decorates everything. Including Cyclonus
  • who is the big spoon/little spoon: Tailgate is big spoon and Cyc is little 
  • who gets most competitive when playing games and/or sports: TAILGATE 
  • who starts the most arguments: They don’t argue too much
  • who suggests that they buy a pet: If it’s jokingly it’s Tailgate (Cyclonus, you look like a bunny! We should get a bunny!) But if its serious its Cyclonus (I found this small organic creature and it wont leave. Its staying)
  • what couple traditions they have: They go dancing once a week, though they switch whether its Cyclonus teaching Tailgate ballroom or Tailgate dragging Cyclonus out to a bar/club
  • what tv shows they watch together: My Cat From Hell (or w/e the cybertronian equivalent could be) 
  • what other couple they hang out with: Less couples, but they do spend a lot of time with Swerve and Whirl
  • how they spend time together as a couple: Cyclonus tends to read while Tailgate watches something on his datapad
  • who made the first move: Tailgate, Cyclonus had been wanting to but you couldn’t make them if you tried
  • who brings flowers home: Both of them, there’s an abundance of fauna in their habsuites as a result
  • who is the best cook: Cyclonus can cook surprisingly well, but Tailgate is a fantastic baker. Just don’t let him decorate anything, it’ll look terrible. 
Cyclonus + Tailgate drabble.

I saw the above post and it made me think of the routine Tailgate goes through in the morning to tempt Cyclonus (who is undoubtedly very cranky) out of bed.
I’ve drawn a little comic to go with this too, which I’ve yet to colour, but hopefully it will be finished in the next few days :) 

(777 words of silliness - SFW)


Tailgate sat at the desk in his hab suite editing articles others had submitted to The Insider when he got a comm. call at 11.49am. On the other end of the line, Tailgate was greeted by Ultra Magnus’s booming voice.

[[Sir?]] When Ultra Magnus was truly upset, he had an unnerving means of mumbling aggressively loudly, Tailgate couldn’t understand a word of it and Ultra Magnus was pushed into speaking more slowly.

[[Cyclonus, is he with you?]]

[[Yes, we’re in the hab suite, he had a late night last night, Cyclonus is still recharging]]

[[Well, wake him up!]] For an instance, Ultra Magnus regressed into irate slurring before forcefully dragging himself back into an ineligible tone, [[He’s supposed to be present for the monthly briefing and if he doesn’t get here soon this will be the fourth month in a row that he’s missed a meeting. I’m senseing a pattern here, Tailgate. I don’t like it.]]

Tailgate stared across the floor to the darkened side of the room where there was a mound of shapes wrapped under a duvet sleeping peacefully. He could see the blanket rising and falling, Cyclonus was still deeply asleep.

(their tense peace lasts until the morning after a tailgate party, when they wake up to find themselves naked, aching, and wrapped up in each other’s arms)
