Now I have! :D
The official Transformers YouTube just put up a nature ambiance/ASMR video.
Not what I was expecting when I logged on today, but I’m okay with this.
I went on an unannounced hiatus for a bit for many reasons, and one of the first things I notice while going through my notes is someone asking if we’re making Ironhide a Teletubbie now, and I’ve been sitting here laughing at the idea for a good five minutes now.
Irohide Voice: Teletubbie bye-bye.
god. I just realized that after a few short years of being away from megatron, starscream’s right back to being told to shut up when he talks and getting punched in the face when he doesn’t. Only this time it’s the autobots doing it, so it’s fine, because starscream’s a jerk and deserves it. :’)
Sorry, I know I keep jumping into this today, but… I want to talk about this. Super long post warning, btw.
So, welcome to my TED Talk: The Transformers Writers (Outside of James Roberts and Mairghread Scott a Little Bit) Have a Lot to Answer for About Their Representation of Trauma and Abuse Survivors
First, the TL;DR version: It really fries my platino when I see people write characters who’ve obviously been twisted by abuse and trauma but are still trying to change, and then act like they don’t deserve to have ANYONE’S sympathy or support.
For a full-scale rant with illustrations, continue below. (Also be aware that there are a few minor Unicron spoilers in here.)
hope you like it! :>
