My questions from justbolts
:1) If you could name one thing you love about TFA Shockwave, what would it be and why?
Oh good lord, only one thing? Alright, to narrow it down I will give myself more rules: nothing about his alter-ego, nothing that breaks the 4th wall (i.e. not his voice acting although HNNNGH I LOVE IT), and no explicit spoilers. Ah, it's still so difficult! Alright, I have it: his delicacy. Shockwave is BIG, there is no denying that - he had to seriously compress his mass to get even vaguely Autobot-sized, and that form is about 2/3 Shockwave's height. He's smaller than Megatron but that's not saying much, EVERYONE is smaller than Megatron. So Shockwave is huge, okay, and he's reasonably bulky (if also a bit lanky) and yet - he has these beautiful slender claws which he uses to perform brain surgery.
*fans self* It's pretty much a physical manifestation of all the best things about him. He's big, he's strong, he's calculating, he's precise, and it's all devoted to Megatron. Hell yes.2) What movie or type of movie have you always wanted to see, but Hollywood has continuously failed to make it for you?
A smart action movie. I don't mean one that has a good explanation for the explosions, I mean one that is made mindfully with more than a token consideration of race, gender, and other issues. Action heroes are bulky straight white guys. If there is a woman in the lead role, she's a sex object. Come ooooonnnnn. :<3) By the same token, what's something (theme, message, acknowledgment of) that you'd want out of future Transformers movies, that the previous ones lacked?
What would I want in future Transformers movies... I want the Transformers as an alien race with their own culture. The fans are so thoughtful about these things - I read a story where Jazz was once a building component, but he essentially had a sex change and now functioned as a singular being. I've read stories that actually deal with the fact that their culture is a theocracy.
We don't have to humanize them to make them sympathetic. I'm tired of the non-bipedal ones being considered nonsentient. I want little moments like someone mentioning Primus and someone else makes a gesture (read a story where it was a circle over the spark, mimicking the Matrix). I want to know how they choose alt-modes, whether fliers are always flier and grounders always grounders and whether there's social tiers based on that. I want to know about their hierarchy, both before the war and in the factions. There's so much I want to know! Enough peeing on people, enough with the human gestures (snorting, spitting, arrrgh), enough with "Autobots are good because they like humans and Decepticons are bad because they're trying to restore their planet", I want to know about the robots! I am watching Transformers because it's about robots! DO YOU THINK I MIGHT WANT TO SEE MORE ABOUT ROBOTS?! aaaaahhhhhh
And that is why I write fanfic. :D4) If there were only three types of meals you could eat for the rest of your life, what would they be?
Three types of meals... Well I pretty much am
restricted to three types of meals. XD I can eat vegetables, poultry, and seafood. Can't eat anything out of a box, can't eat other meats, can't eat corn syrup. I'm lactose intolerant (but I eat cheese and yogurt anyway, they're low in lactose) and I'm extremely sensitive to caffeine. Can't eat processed sugars. So yeah - my answer is vegetables, poultry, and seafood. XD5) If you suddenly got an all expenses paid trip to anywhere in the world, where would it be to?
You know, I'm not one of those people who wants to travel. I don't really want to see the Grand Canyon, I have little interest in the Caribbean, cruise ships sound boring... So I'm going to go with Pripyat. I really, really do want to visit Pripyat and Chernobyl. I am desperately intrigued by the biological stuff going on - I want to know if the mutations of the pines are genetic, or whether it's due to constant exposure to the cracked sarcophagi of the Red Forest. I want to visit that creepy ferris wheel, and I want to meet the people who live there. It's not a wasteland. It's teeming with life - plant and animal and human. It's beautiful and terrible.
