    I was thinking about this after recently watching the most recent episode of AWAKE...

    since Starscream is on his own, i wonder if it would be some really cool character development if he starts to lose his mind, and instead of Skywarp and Thundercracker being actual characters, they were just figments of his imagination which represent different aspects of his personality...(a sort of tie to animated aswell...)

    what do you guys think?

    Tell me more about your plan. How does it affect his budding relationship with Arcee? I must add that there are already real seekers because Starscream said that he once led "a squadron of energon seekers."

    First off: Points for watching "Awake." Second: the idea of representing possible dementia like that AND homage Animated is awesome.

    Although this thread title does remind me how stupid "seekers" has become these days. Everyone's a seeker, practically.

    We didn't even get one reply before someone dragged Arcee into a totally non-Arcee related thread.

    That actually sounds like a good dude. But I'd prefer Thundercracker and Skywarp to be REAL characters and actually make an appearance in the show.

    I like this idea, I like it ALOT.


    Slipstream would give him dating advice and teach him how to treat a fembot.

    Hey, I can do this crap too, it's not hard.

    That's a really cool idea, OP.

    "Starscream and the Seekers" sounds like a band name.

    *Ahem* On topic, it's a pretty cool idea. I wouldn't mind seeing it.

    He's not dragging Arcee into a non-Arcee related thread. He's dragging his complete obsession of shipping those two together into yet another thread, which is all he has done for the past two weeks.

    That's quite unorthodox. I love it.

    Starscream going crazy? I like it. For some reason though him talking to clones of him self and his 2 friends from Cybertron reminds of the Ice king from Adventure time.

    This is a worthy idea for more development. Though i'd hate for him to lose his marbles since I'm a Starscream fan, it would lead to some awesome episodes of him talking to himself and leaving all who see him very VERY confused.

    It's a much more interesting idea than making clones. I'm not a fan of reusing the same models as I feel their bodies are apart of who they are. If Skywarp and Thundercracker were to become physical characters, I'd hope they'd look like their own unique characters (though probably extremely unlikely).

    So interesting idea, OP, though I'd prefer he not go mad, either for the same reason as Kin mentioned.

    I like the idea of stretching his mind beyond the limit of sanity for an episode or two. Given his current situation a mind-fuck could be easily pulled off (energon deprivation, solitude, being grounded for too long, getting captured and tortured by Megatron; heck if they decide to make his spark immortal they could make him psychologically damaged after surviving his own death or seeing the other side).

    Then again if there is any strength in Starscream, it's in his mind. And he's already a overly talkative individual bordering on a manic-depressive disorder, wandering through the woods and talking to himself. There might be no need to add more insanity to that.

    They should show up in his head like the multiple Jack Sparrows from the third Pirates of the Caribbean, picking peanuts out of his wings and all.
