I’m uploading all my stories because work starts tomorrow, and college starts again this coming Monday, and I know I will not have as much time as I did over the Holiday break to write or post, so…….yeah.
Not only that, but Internet is still down at my place, and I’m getting more familiar with the workers at this coffee shop (that has free Wi-Fi) than I’d like to be.
What do I say about this.
I know, I know. Y’all was waiting for an update for Penumbra from me, and when I do have Internet access, instead, I give you a drabble about Percy’s partner and some femme no one cares about.
Am I horrible or what?
See, I notice that Wheeljack tends to get the short end of the stick, both in canon and fanon.
In the G1 cartoons (and fanart), his stuff always explodes in his faceplates.
In the G1 Movie (you know, “you got the touch, dun dun dun dun, you got the power, dun dun dun, tik tik tik tik, YEAH!), he dies.
In the Unicron Trilogy, he becomes a traitor.
In the Animated series, he gets no lines whatsoever.
In the Bayverse movies, he gets brutally executed.
And in the Prime continuity………he has facial scars, psychological scars from probably watching his fellow Wreckers get killed, and he gets the typical Drift treatment.
And in the fanart and fanfiction (and most other fanworks), it’s his partner, it’s Percy, who keeps getting the love/action/happy endings.
And I say WHAT.
Everyone, I love Perceptor as much as the fandom does (I mean, really, he’s the Woobie of the entire franchise), but c’mon! All scientists are sexy. I repeat, ALL DA SCIENTISTS NEED SOME LOVIN’.
So……yeah. I, personally, thought it would be kinda hot to make his lover a rank higher than him. Or give her/him reason to be above ole ‘Jack.
Also, Override Prime, being a femme Prime, just fascinated the daylights out of me. Considering she wasn’t even Cybertronian to begin with. (see Override on TFWiki) And, hey, she had to work on her own ship at some point, I think.
Whatever, guys. This one feels all blech on me.
I’m gonna go buy myself some tea before the coffee shop workers kick me out. Leave comments, please. And thanks so much for reading my junk.
