1-4) Rift Apart did not give us the Nef redemption and subsequent Nef vs Nef violence we deserved so I’m making it myself. Nef should’ve been redeemed and given actual in-depth interactions and conflict with Emps, I have started an entire RA AU for this, I will die on this hill. Also thanks to @iamonlypartlymajestic for helping me with the insults, especially the muppet one
5) Also before release, with the seekerpede and being able to tell that Emps was much more skeletal in design, I was so hoping for some sort of ultimate skeleton-bug form boss fight and the giant mecha was good and all but I was hoping something cooler would happen against Emps himself. So I gave him spider arms because I headcanon that Emps still started off as a science guy and would totally give himself physical augmentations to make himself more powerful
6) More Nef vs Nef rivalry. I stared at their refs for too long and noticed their heights
7) I want Emps to be a terrible influence on Nef and I wish we got more dialogue between the two of them instead of Nef getting dragged around not even saying a word in some scenes, seriously what was that
I know the term is used to refer to Starscream’s frame type but I never quite understood it. what are they seeking exactly?
in tfp, Starscream calls them “Energon Seeker” which doesn’t really explain much - I mean they obviously aren’t miners, and Cybertronians have advanced technology to find energon so… what are seekers for?
I know this is probably not what the show intended (but that’s the fun with headcanons - it doesn’t matter!) but my favorite theory is that they aren’t really called seeker at all - I think it’s just grounders being too lazy to translate a Vosian word.
I’ll explain - back in the days of ancient Rome, during “the Great Revolt ”, the jews had a unit (for lack of a better word) called the Sicarii, they were called that because of the small daggers they carried that were called Sica that they would use to silently stab anyone who was suspected to be a traitor or to align with the Romans.
<this is what this Sica looks like>
now Starscream obviously doesn’t have anything that resembl-
I headcanon seekers to be some kind of elite assassins used for dangerous & important jobs - hence why Starscream bragged about it to Airacnid…
now in any transformers universe (that I know of), Energon is both their fuel & their blood.
I think we misunderstood which one the seekers were after…
I know this might be a bit of a stretch but transformers tend to use many Roman words so… it’s not completely impossible!
That’s a very interesting theory, and sounds plausible too. The word sounds so much like it.

Knock Out: *watching from across the room* hohho yeah~
Starscream: *still bent over* …
Knock Out: …
Starscream: … … oh Primus, my fucking back- someone help me up-
Knock Out: *notifying Breakdown to clear his schedule* hohho yeah~
I see a lot of talk about how neurodivergence evolved and stayed in the gene pool because it was somehow ‘useful’ to our ancient ancestors. While I don’t necessarily disagree with this theory, I would like to propose an alternative. A theory that we already have physical evidence for. Humans just love each other and care for each other. Don’t you think that a species that cared for it’s people while they recovered from broken bones, or nursed their elderly well beyond their ‘usefulness’ would leave a member out because they didn’t make eye contact, or couldn’t stay focused on a particular task, or whatever other trait you associate with neurodivergence? I really don’t.
Sure, maybe it was useful to have someone around who didn’t mind making arrowheads all day, or who knew absolutely everything about all of the local flora and fauna, or who keyed in on every little distraction. At the end of the day, though, these people weren’t kept around because they were useful, they were cared for because they were loved.
This. This. This.
