We have a thread regarding the humour we would use if we had our own personal continuity of the Transformers franchise. So, I'm curious to wonder; for those that have deigned to craft their own TF universe, what are the underlying themes and messages you would convey to an audience? How would characters and their situations reflect that theme? I've give you these two examples from my own fanon-continuity, oh so intelligently named the Metaverse P): First and foremost, morality. Granted, this has been fairly present and debated in other series, but it's fairly more prominent in the Metaverse, how characters view their principles, apply them to the war and whether they adhere to them or are forced to redefine their view. On the one hand, to pick an example, we have Ratchet as a bastion of principle, firmly believing that the war should not corrupt one's views or ideals, classic hero views. On the other hand, Warpath is one who believes in fighting fire-with-fire; mercy is a virtue not be applied to Decepticons, and he has no problem at all with acting as brutal as his enemy. While tragedies happen, the Metaverse never explicitly focuses on one side or the other; personally, I find it much more stimulating to see how the viewer reacts to the debates of the characters and determine which side they, well, side with And secondly, the similarities/contrasts of the Autobots and Decepticons. No matter how much both factions alienate each other, we the viewers see that quite honestly, the line is not as distinct as the robots make it out to be. For example, both Bumblebee and Brawl represent a childish naivety, lost without their guiding figures (Hound and Onslaught, respectively) and not understanding the full extent of Cybertron's situation. But we see how the factions have split them: While Bee has been relatively sheltered from the war and thus retains an innocence that is heartbreakingly rare, Brawl has been taught to indulge in it and thus is as fierce a warrior as most other 'Cons. I find it very interesting to muse on what one can do with their own continuity, so to speak. So, my fellow forumites, what aspects would you want to explore?
