“I think I’m a the only person who does not ship starscream x megatron”
Don’t worry you are not the only one. I can not stand the Starscream/Megatron pairing at all especially when they are shipped in a romantic fashion.
Abuse is not romantic. Trying to kill someone is not romantic.
The thing that actually bothers me about the sudden influx of Megatron/Starscream isn’t that it’s ‘sick and wrong’. That’s obvious.
Emotional abuse, physical abuse, power imbalance, fear? Those are kinks. Creepy kinks to most people, but they exist, and they’re okay as long as you realize and address that it’s fucked up, keep it away from real life, etc.
And that’s what Megatron/Starscream is all about. At least in TFP. There is fear and abuse and a pathetic dependency on Starscream’s side to Megatron. I fully admit that I have a thing for it.
But I’ve been seeing things like—comments on the new preview like “Starscream’s hoping his husbando is coming to save him!” and “Megatron is running to save his wifey!“
And that’s not…that’s not right. Starscream is hoping his abusive Master will rescue him, and Megatron wants his clever toy/pet to stay intact.
It isn’t love.
That…kind of needs to be remembered, I think?
Oh god all of this.
See, I don’t care if you have an abuse kink. I. Don’t. Care.
I get that that happens. I get that you have no control over that shit. And as long as you keep everything consensual and don’t hurt anyone? Fine. Go crazy.
What bothers me is that people don’t seem to be treating Megs/Star as a “this hits all of my kinks” sort of deal.
They seem to be treating it as a “true love” sort of deal.
And that… guys, are we even watching the same show?
Because that is just wrong on an infinite number of levels at this point.
I’m still dreading October 19th the most.
I can’t stand watching Megatron and Starscream onscreen together. It makes me feel physically sick.
I am not going to make it.
I can’t stand it either. I can’t understand why like 98% of the fandom ships them. Abusive relationships are horrible. It seems pretty clear to me that Megatron is the reason Starscream is so emotionally screwed up, and I think it is in his best interests to stay far far away from Megatron. I saw a post recently about Megatron “getting his wife back” and I’m like NOOO WHYYY!!!???
When the pairing you don’t like is so popular that it’s treated as canon even though it’s not.
MEGATRON X STARSCREAM
“I know many people like it, and nothing against the characters individually or in canon, but I just cannot stand MegatronxStarscream. I know there’s tons of fans that would call that blasphemy, but I just can’t support an abusive relationship.”
“Honestly I feel like I’m the only one who doesn’t like Megatron and Starscream paired together. I think abusive relationships are terrible and nothing is going to change that.”
Thank god I’m not alone.
Yes! I totally agree.
