I was discussing the TF war to a friend of mine. I explained to him that the war is a civil war and before that they were just Cybertronians, not Autobots and Decepticons. He then asked some interesting questions, "What is it like to fight a civil war?" ("Enemies, who were once our brothers."),"What does it means exactly, to be an Autobot or Decepticon?", "And what would it take to push a robot from leaving one side and and joining the other?" For me, I would say that a civil war would be the most hardest and saddest war to fight, what if your best friend was on the other side, would you pull the trigger on them? To be an Autobot, well I kinda liken them to the civil rights supporters back in the day, wanting change and wanting all to be equal. To be a Decepticon, I think of anger and frustration, of being held down by the Man, until you finally snap, I think of thugs and gangsters, and Mafia-minded robots, heh To switch sides, for an Autobot, one bot could think that Optimus is too benevolent for his own good, and that the Autobot side is too weak and therefore, switch to the "winning team". For a Decepticon, one con see the world around him, and realize that if Megatron wins, there won't be anything left of Cybertron to rule and so sides with Optimus to stop him. Now I would like to hear from you guys and gals, on what your answers to those questions would be.
