What I am about to say may piss some people off, so get ready. First off: robot romance. Yeah, that's right. So, you don't like it when Arcee hits on Hot Rod in the '86 movie? Get thrown off when Airazor and Tigatron confess thier love for each other? Why? IDW gave us a great explanation for the existence of female Transformers, so let's follow it up with a reason for them to love. Perhaps the attraction is a remenant of thier inevitable biological ancestors. The fundemental need to reproduce reawakened by the re-emergance of gender. Maybe I'm just full of crap? But, hey, if I can whip that explanation up in an afternoon, I'm sure more knowledgable fans could give a better one in a week. SO why am I defending romance in Transformers? Because, romance offers a level of emotional character interaction that other relationships-such as friendship, brotherhood, etc-just can't. We want to be emotionally involved with our characters, and for them to be emotionally involved with each other, on as many levels as possible. Second, we have the fandom itself. Yeah, I'm talkin' to you out there. All of you. This thing is just like the American political system. Seperate groups getting together like warring tribes to bitch and moan about how one is better than the rest. "Oh, yeah, we're TFW! We're so much better than those guys at Seibertron!" "Look at me! I'm a big-shot YouTube reviewer! Don't subscribe to those other guys! I've got exclusive Animated reviews!" Stop it. Just like the republicans and Democrats, it's only when we shut the f*ck up, get our sh*t together, and join forces, will we actually get anything done. Let the hate mail begin.
