First off: Amasa, I am very VERY sorry for falling asleep on you last night. Next time I'll know my limits and go to bed before I get a faceful of keyboard.
Questions from raisedbymoogles1) What's your icon from? 'Cause it looks cute.
It’s the cropped head from this,
which is a human female version of Cybertron Ransack. 2) What was your favorite toy as a kid?
I had a lot of stuffed animals that I loved dearly, but one of my favorites was Judge Rabbit. He was a bunny in a judge outfit with a wig and a little gavel that later came unglued and got lost. He was given to me at some thing with a Santa Claus when I was really little, and it might have had something to do with the fact that I snuck out of the room while the other kids were playing and I saw “Santa” getting his costume together. Fortunately I’m Jewish so I already knew the secret.3) Quick! Make up a battle cry!
Feel your mind sizzle, for your logical thought shall be mine!4) Pick one appliance in your house that you wish could talk.
Does the computer count? Besides that I wish the toaster could talk so I’d be able to know why it won’t put the bread down half the time.5) What annoys you about the fandom? And by "the fandom" I mean any fandom that you happen to be in-mindset right now.
I’m pretty pissed at some of the purists who think that whatever the networks put out isn’t good enough, so they’re going rewrite the entire series-universe to their own specifications. I’ve seen more then one rewrite of Energon where they just take what they want and make up the rest. Or the ones that just out and out hate non-G1 and bash Armada worst of all. I’m an Armada fan and I’m damn proud of it.This guy
is also a little on the confusing side. He seems to think that cartoon and comic Shockwave are aspects of the same person, and Shockblast must be similar to them in personality.
And then there’s the art. I’m no artist so perhaps I should be complaining, but I’m tired of seeing everyone just posing with no background, usually with a hand reaching out. Where’s the action, where’s the creativity?
Don’t even get me started on the depiction of females, and this goes for both genders. Stop depicting them as frail little flowers or preppy romance-obsessed shoppers. The canon femmes are warriors, and any Autobot/Decepticon fancharacters are going to at least have a tough-girl streak. I refer you to Steadfast or Steelcast for Decepticon examples. Capable, elegant, deadly in Steadfast’s case, but no hint of “OMG My boyfriend hates me I’m going to go cry in a corner”. Blech. Neutrals are a different story, but there are no canon neutrals.
