    Yeah you can. No one can stop you. I even ship Windblade x Bumblebee as a mother-son relationship. (Yes, I know it's weird.)

    What is with TF fans and their raging hormones lately?

    The ongoing loosening of previous held tenants of "modesty and tradition" in society coupled with what seems like am influx of younger fans who have occupied the current "free love no limits no sense" mindset a lotta teenagers have nowadays.

    I'm a real free love kinky kinda dude. Like it'd disturb mosta you. But that's just it.

    I leave my odd sexual interests at the door when I enter a website full of grown men discussing a children's franchise. Watta concept.

    I can only speak for myself and while hormones may have something to do with it, I write the ships I do out of curiosity. A 'could this really work?' or 'how could I make this work' deal. My TFP Starscream x Arcee ship is an example of the latter....along with an exploration of 'why/how is Starscream like this' with a side of 'can I redeem him?'. The result? I may have one of the more 'unique' Starscream origin stories.... (Just so you know, my AU continuity is more than just exploring ships...frag at this point I think the ships are secondary...if that.)

    Couple that with the (my, at least) stance that Transformers don't really have a gender/sexual orientation...and the doors are wide open for possibilities. Sure, the question of 'why would they get into relationships in the first place?' is there, but pairings had a basis in freaking G1 for one reason or another. While fans probably did shipping before that, once that OP/Elita-One thing showed up...you get what I mean.

    No one's stopping you. We all enjoy what essentially is a hobbie made for children. You have already crossed the bridge of " Of who gives a fuck?" And paid the "Not me, muthafucka toll." Why stop now?

    As long as they end up adopting a young hotshot in the end, then sure.

    Ship it if you want but don’t steer it somewhere it’s not meant to go.

    Am I the only one who feels it’s gotten completely out of control. Two characters stand next to eachother and it becomes “they should be together”

    I don’t know. Shipping is something I see as people not being able to make relationships themselves and push their feelings in fictional characters because they can’t in the real world

    Yeah. I agree that it's a wee bit crazy out there. The problem these days, however, is that writers are becoming more and more sensitive today and feel like there needs to be a certain level of ambiguity to all of it so that it can allow for "shipping". It's something I've noticed in a lot of newer cartoons - how much is left vague or unclear so that the fans can fill the gaps with their own headcanon. It's fun for a while, but I'm hoping we eventually go back to the style that tells a clear cut story so I can go back and try to unpack authorial intent - a thing I enjoy far more than trying to fill up space with "I guess it might be this...?"

    As for shipping a surrogates for real relationships... I dunno. People have been doing some form of it or another for eons. It's not like it's a new phenomenon. Bet anyone half of the old myths and stories we have are just "fanfiction of the Gods" because someone thought Aphrodite should be with Ares as opposed to Hephaestus. Aredite OTP 5ever.

    For the OP:

    Yes, you can ship them, but in order to stay current with the recent trends, you have to imagine convoluted backstories for the both of them, and it is mandatory that you have to produce a MINIMUM 5 page list of imaginary situations that they can have a meet/cute in PLUS draft an outline of the inevitable High School AU.

    I'll expect you to hand in your work by Friday.

    I'm clearly not up to the latest 'trends'. Pffft...I'd say: frag trends. I personally try to keep things plausible at least (unless I am writing something completely off the wall for my own amusement).

    Man, you can do whatever the hell you want to. Wanna ship characters from a show meant for 8-10 year olds? You go right ahead, ain't no one gonna stop you. At least, I won't.

    Then you, sir or madam, are banned from fanfics FOREVER.

    I was joking, really. That's what the blue text means. You do you, friend.

    I kind of figured that. My 'kidding/sarcasm' meter isn't completely broken ;) .

    I take a 'don't like, don't read' approach...and trust me when I say there are a LOT of fanfiction I won't read....

    Quite good ship.
    Don't think they'll show Windblade and Bee kissing though.

    Go ahead and ship them. All I ask is that no one makes any fan art of them having sex. That's where I draw the line. They can hold hands, they can kiss but robot genitals do not exist.

    It's even worse with the current comic fans. The incest ships are the ones that have me genuinely concerned for the future of humanity.

    Kind of like how any time a character stands next to Springer or Kup they MUST be a Wrecker. Now I'm reminded of how much I fucking DETEST the Wreckers. ALMOST as much as I detest this shipping phenomenon.

    Great minds, and all that...

    Thank you.
    Thank you again.

    It's like 4chan is slowly leaking into the normal forums...

    It's probably too late for that.

    No. You’ve violated the law. Pay the fine as ordered by the court of this land or serve your time.

    They’re the abstract concept of social and labor division based upon dimorphic traits and behavioral patterns, huh?

    And here I thought they were robots.
