Um, hi there friend. May I please ask for headcanons for Armada Starscream, Prime Ratchet, Smokescreen, MTMTE Rodimus and Cygate (if that's not too much) reacting to finding out their s/o (human or bot, either works) has been cutting, starving themselves, or inflicting some other form of self-harm upon themselves. Nothing graphic, just they're reactions to maybe witnessing it or just finding out in any way. I love your work. Thanks a million!

Armada Starscream
Instantly saddened upon finding out. He’s internally angry at whatever caused you to hurt yourself.

He understands though the world can be tough and sometimes it gets the better of you and things happen. Some times regretful things happen.

Starscream looks out for you more form then on. If he thinks you’re to stressed, overworked or anything else negative he’ll stop what’s he’s doing and pull you aside to rest and if you’re up to it talk about what’s bringing you down.


Prime Ratchet
The medic is upset with himself when he learns of the self-harm/lack of self care. He should of seen the signs and interfered but he was to busy to pay attention. It really hits him if he had pushed you away specially if you were trying to seek help.

He pulls himself from work more often to check on you or asks the kids the check on you. If any nice marks or your condition worsens he’ll try to talk you about and try not to get angry. He just doesn’t want you to damage your self anymore.

He doesn’t want to lose you. He’s very avid about that. 


Smokescreen
Smokescreen is a young bot and doesn’t really know how to deal with this but he tries. Really hard too.

He tries to have a more active role in you life(more than he already was) and made clear that if you need any he’ll be there. 

If you’re okay with it he’ll talk with the others to help build a support system.

MTMTE Rodimus
Does the standard ‘I’m here for you speech’ and tries to sound like he isn’t hurting inside. Which he is.

Rodimus wonders if it was something he did or didn’t do that caused you to go to this measures. Are you too stressed? Do not feel loved enough? He desperately tries to help you.

With permission he starts setting up appointments with Rung or have someone who’s willing to help talk with you. He hopes what he’s doing helps to not hurt yourself anymore.

Cyclonus & Tailgate (Cygate Poly)
Tailgate didn’t understand and thought maybe someone hurt you and you were just covering for them. Cyclonus tells the minibot to not try to fight the crew to find the one who did it and explained that best he could what was really going on.

Tailgate starts to check on you often and will start cuddle piles if he feels you aren’t well. Cyclonus will watch from the distance unless Tailgate starts coaxing him to enter the cuddle pile.  Cyclonus sets up a schedule for Rung and Ratchet to give you checks up in case of any later instances . 

If you have self harm scars Tailgate will try to kiss it but without lips he ends up just bumping his helm against them until he has Cyclonus do it instead.
