So on the lines of Sparkpulse discussing headcanons, because I have a lot of them, over a lot of things, I feel tonight like talking about Shockwave. More specifically, about Shockwave’s emotions.

I think he has them. That’s my headcanon. There’s just a lot more to it than that, as is usual with me.

Shockwave was first introduced in Transformers: Prime in a flashback episode, and didn’t make his full, proper appearance until the third season. In that initial flashback he was stoic, static, and just a bit scary. His return in season three was an unexpected boon to the Decepticons. Megatron, especially, was happy to see him… him, and his newest experiment, a massive robotic dragon identified as a Predacon, who would later identify himself as Predaking.

Predaking is really important to some of my ideas, so yeah.

Now, historically, Shockwave is supposed to be a character who runs on logic. In G1 he could be a bit comical, but also in charge of some serious stuff and it was his job to run it all efficiently. In TFA he was more lighthearted, even openly pointing and laughing at Lugnut in one memorable episode, but it’s hard to say how much of that could be attributed to habits picked up masquerading as an Autobot for so long. IDW goes full-stop emotionless with him, making him an intense, driven character with no sense of remorse until it’s too late. This is something that was done to him, by force. It’s very sad and sometimes I think about it way too much. Anyway, this is the range Shockwave’s character usually falls into. TFP Shockwave is much closer to the IDW version than the other two. What little comic relief he provides is unintentional because he’s just so deadpan about everything. It is essentially accepted that he is emotionless with the possible exception of anger, which happens twice.

I don’t think so.

To me, one of the things that is most telling about Shockwave are his antennae… things. They move a lot towards the end of the series, just like in the gif above. The faux-wings on his back do the same thing. They twitch. They flutter. They emote. And I think the expressions they show amount to a lot more than rage. The two occasions where Shockwave becomes visibly angry are when the Wreckers send the Predaking through a groundbridge and out of his sight, and Shockwave goes down and personally kicks their afts for it. The second instance is when Starscream almost destroys all of his research data… he nearly blinds the Seeker for it. Both of these are clearly angry moments, which lends to the idea that Shockwave is unfeeling until something snaps. This idea actually ties in nicely with his IDW Spotlight… he’s unfeeling until he needs to feel rage to survive. But the movement of the antennae above isn’t angry. It’s a bit more startled, a clear reaction to something. He’s daunted. Sometimes, at other times, the movements seem almost inquisitive, like his scientific mind is curious and he perks up like a puppy. They respond to conversations like any other sort of body language.

I think he has no idea that they do this, honestly. I think that if you asked TFP Shockwave, himself, if he was emotionless, he probably thinks he is. He probably has no idea that his antennae and his winglets respond to anything anyone says. That’s where my personal headcanon comes into it. In one scene at the beginning of Season 3 that I remember quite fondly, Shockwave is actually standing next to his big dragon petting him… with the volume up, it sounds like Predaking could actually be purring. This moment, combined with his absolute rage at thinking that the Wreckers had somehow beaten his creation, indicate that he might just feel actual affection for the Predacon. But I don’t think he knows this. I don’t think he’s aware, at all, that he emotes, and that if you told him so, he probably wouldn’t believe you. Because he runs on logic. Emotions aren’t needed, so why would he be bothering with them?

I think if he was ever well and truly flustered somehow, those things would waggle back and forth like crazy, and if you told him they were doing it, he would deny it. Not because it’s embarrassing or anything, but because he honestly believes he has full control over all parts of his frame and he would never waste energy on emoting.

I think that if he became depressed somehow, they would droop. So would the faux-wings on his back. And he would be confused as to why anyone would ask what was wrong, because nothing is wrong, he does not let setbacks distress him.

I think if he got really, really happy they would stick up a bit more than usual and of course he just has no idea that he’s got a lovely mood ring right on top of his head. He really hasn’t got a clue. That is what I believe.

It makes me happy to think this, anyway, and I need happy, because sometimes I remember IDW and that just makes my spark hurt…

This appears to be the most accurate scale guide I’ve ever found.

The top image of Starscream standing next to MECH agents is the basis for these measurements. Assuming that Silas is 180cm (about 6ft) it extrapolates that Starscream is between 720cm (about 24ft) and 760cm (about 25ft.) For the sake of simplicity they seem to have gone with 750cm.

“The secret of change is to focus all of your energy, not on fighting the old, but on building the new.” - Socrates 

I’ve come to realize that’s where I went wrong the first time around. I was so focused on changing my body because I hated it, losing as much weight as quickly as possible, and getting rid of this old person I did not like. I wanted it to stick, but I was lost and didn’t know how to find balance. This time, I’ve found that balance I never knew I needed. I’ve found an amazing support system and community, I’m creating healthy habits that stick, and I’m truly committed to making a lifestyle change. I like and know who I am now, regardless of what weight I’m at, and I want to inspire others to start their lifestyle change today. What are you waiting for?

Josh Duhamel Transformers The Last Night Full Interview Talks Fatherhood

TF - Dead End on a Hot Street - Chapter 15

Real talk, I should be asleep. But I got on a role and I finished the next chapter and I feel good so I’m posing it in a half-asleep state.

This chapter end MUCH happier than the last one, and you can thank my guilt for leaving you on an angst cliffhanger for getting this chapter out so soon.

But on the bright side, I feel a lot better about the story now and more motivated. I think the time jump was what I needed.

Deadlock and Hot Rod have started a new chapter in their lies, and I hope you enjoy it!

Read Chapter 15: Archive of Our Own or

(Amusing Side Note: 100 more Kudos and I’ll have the number one most Kudos’d Drift/Roddy fic on AO3. Though I’m first if you don’t count the 45 chapter smut drabble collection that’s beating me…)

Request for mtmte Rod, Rung, Megatron and one more for your choosing to a Cybertronian s/o who's part dragon? They dont trasnform into ny vehicle, only a dragon. Ive read mtmte and i dont remember if there are any Predacons in the storyline. Thanks!

If Skylinx exists in that same universe then a predacon sure as heck can too lmao 

Rodimus Prime MTMTE

His reaction is pretty much just ‘radical’ and then he moves on, he doesn’t really question it 


He’s never met a cybertronian who could transform into a dragon, and he’s seen just about everything, so he’s fascinated from the start. Never in a rude or condescending way though!

Megatron MTMTE

He’s curious about your alt mode, it’s certainly an odd one, but he would never push the subject or be rude about it. He’s definitely not one to judge someone for their alt mode, ever 

anonymous asked:

Why Berthold didnt trasnform in the last 2 episodes? It's a plot hole or there's a reason for that?

I will quote @momtaku on this 

It makes sense to me that he didn’t transform. His titan form is pretty useless for anything except kicking and steaming. In fact, for a time we weren’t even sure if his titan form could walk since we’d only ever seen it stand while holding onto something. He’s also never in the form for very long. It must require tremendous energy to create and support.


So, I was browsing through my Transformers (Ongoing) issues, and I found #11 “International Incident Part 3: ‘Hawk Among the Sparrows’” and not only did I love that title and became sad I didn’t pay attention to it before, I realized I had forgotten the Thundercracker/Bumblebee exchange.

I’d see just little bits from it, that I forgot how good it was all together. XD Like forgetting right after Thundercracker saying the friendship wasn’t working, Bumblebee turns off his TV (shown above). I snorted. It was funny again. <3

And the bottom frame is included just because I laughed. “You two are hopeless.”

anonymous asked:

(Spoilers) I actually really liked the issue except for that last part like... im mad at Terminus cause he obviously led megatron to the wrong teleporter :/ like I get it, hes his friend but it wasnt his decision tu make (plus megs had said he wanted to leave? And imo he deserves to go on the quest to find the knights and be rightfully judged as he was supposed to?) Hope he gets out somehow cause i mean? Hes an important character in trasnformers this cant be the last we dee of him :/

The more I think about it the angrier I get so I’ll try to condense all I have to say in an orderly fashion below the cut to avoid spoiling anyone in my dash

“To be candid at the risk of being offensive, I see the notion of substitutionary atonement as bad theology and bad history.  I do not mean to mock people who think this way or to imply that thinking this way precludes being Christian.  Millions of Christians have believed in substitutionary atonement and have been good Christians.  Being Christian is not primarily about getting our beliefs right.  Rather, I am inviting people who believe or think they are supposed to believe in substitutionary atonement to think again, to reconsider, to see again.

I think it’s bad theology because it elevates one understanding of Jesus’ death above all others and makes it normative.  Moreover, it says something both limiting and negative about God.  It limits God by saying God can forgive sins only if adequate payment is made.  Is God limited in any way?  Is God limited by the requirements of law?  It is negative in that in it God demands a death–somebody must die.  It implies that the death of Jesus, this immeasuarbly great and good man, was God’s will, God’s plan for our salvation.

In its emphatic form, the substitutionary atonement leads to what Dallas Willard, an evangelical author, vividly calls ‘vampire Christians”–Christians interested in Jesus for his blood but little else.  But as he and I agree, the cross is about discipleship.  Discipleship, following Jesus, is not about believing a correct atonement theology.  It is about following the way of the cross–commitment to the path of personal trasnformation as symbolized by the cross, and commitment to the confrontation with domination systems, equally symbolized by the cross.

-Marcus Borg, Stricken By God? Pg. 158

okey, how I explain this  ( ̄ω ̄)  I don’t have much time to plain this version au so I came with something simple:

Angels (mewmans) demons (monsters) they are at war for the “middle land” (somenthing like mewni) and the only way to defent both sides is with the legendary sacred wand, nobody knows where it is, the band who have this powerfull weapon can defeted her enemy.

Star is an angel, somenthing like the daughter of the goddess Moon, she have the duty of find the sacred wand and give it to the goddess Moon. Star can control the magic of light and purity

Marco is a human that was curse and trasnform into a demond and sealing in a ring, Star found him and accidentally breaks the sealing Making marco her…husband? (・ω<)☆ Marco cand control the magic of darkness and create curses <br>


And yeah this is my first entry for the @starcoweek2 ʕ •̀ ω •́ ʔ  and also first draw of inktober ヾ(☆'∀'☆) im gonna try to make all days for the starco week (almost all days, I don’t promise anything ┐(︶▽︶)┌
