Venom’s Revised OTP Challenge

The OTP that Broke Your Heart - #3 of 3

Starscream and Alexis from Transformers: Armada

I think the reason I like Alexis/Starscream even to this day is because it’s a kinda refreshing take on the whole “damaged man is redeemed through the “love” of a good woman”.  Yes, Alexis liked Starscream and gave him positive attention which brought out the best in him. But she never directly compromised her safety for his sake, reprimanded him when he attempted to shirk duties for the Autobots (even if that meant sacrificing social time with Starscream and her pals), and wouldn’t put up with him when he was being cranky. Alexis set standards of behavior for Starscream based on her own comfort level, rewarded good actions with equally positive regard, and didn’t overly indulge him.

Plus, it always felt like Starscream had level of respect for Alexis, even when he lacked that respect for himself.

IDW!Starscream will never know true friendship…

By request: Armada Starscream/Alexis/Dr. Jones comic. Very beautiful art and sad story, but I am obliged to point out that it is…

NSFW. (Not porn, but NSFW nonetheless. Also, since this is human-on-human and not robot-on-robot my mother can’t disown me just yet.)

Hope you enjoy, requester!

Right-click and open in new tab for full size.

Ah, yes.  Ms. President Alexis… 

Also, for those wondering, Dr Brian Jones did indeed tell Alexis that she was a mature, sexy lady in the original Japanese audio of Super Links

But this dude ain’t no Starscream…

To add on to what you’re saying, the Japanese voice actor for Starscream in Micron Legend (Armada) was Jin Yamanoi, who went on to voice Dr. Jones here in Super Link (Energon).

Perhaps the reason Alexis blushed when he called her “mature and sexy” was because she heard a certain Seeker’s voice instead. X3

There’s a little bit of d’aww between Starscream and the Star Saber Mini-Cons. When he returns to the Decepticon base after they abandon him, he gathers the Mini-Cons to recharge with him. Later, after he tries to join up with the Autobots and Hot-Shot is annoyed at his new ally, pressuring Starscream to leave, the Mini-Cons that form the Star Saber hug his leg, trying to persuade him not to.

ok but probably one of the best/worst things about Transformers Armada is that the Autobots just let the kids come with them all the freakin time. There isn’t a whole lot of “blah blah this is dangerous blah you can’t come” like in most of the other tv series. Like there’s never any adults around and the Autobots are going into potentially very dangerous situations for the kids and even Optimus is like “sure why the fuck not”. they even let 5 kids go into fuckin outer space for like a week. like it was no big deal

Vote Armada Optimus for the most-fucks-not-given-for-human-safety guardian

one time the kids knitted Starscream a blanket

if you don’t think this is number one scene in transformers history then first of all how dare you

but really am I the only one displeased with Starscream’s new colors??

They want to bring back Armadascream.  Just as G1IDWScream was getting competent.  Also I like red on starscreams, but I like to balamce it with white or black.  Yellow is just trashy on him.

On the one hand, I’m happy that the Armada!Starscream look is getting such a major reference in a contemporary comic, much in the same way I’m delighted RiD brought in Skybyte. Goofy as some of the Japanese series could be, it’s great to see that their stand-out elements aren’t being forgotten. That’s what a good franchise should do.

But, on the other hand, I liked IDW Starscream’s old look a lot. And let’s be honest, it wasn’t the orange and shoulder wings that made Armada!Starscream interesting, it was his complexity of character and his warm fuzzy secret heart so thirsty for wuv. And I just don’t think this particular incarnation of Starscream is going to go down that road. Because, to be frank, IDW!Starscream comes off as really inconsistent to me.

Iconic imagery is great, but what makes a character stick in someone’s mind is what churns underneath.

sometimes I actually consider watching Armada again

There’s not enough that can be said for the power of this scene, in my opinion.

People compare Starscream’s last stand to the death of Dinobot, but there’s an important distinction. Dinobot knew what he had to do… and he had to win.

Starscream? There was no “winning” in Starscream’s case. There would be no final moments where he could say “Did I do it? Did I save everyone in the end?” There was nothing but failure destined for him.

But then, that failure was what he knew he had to do. He had to take Galvatron by the horns (heh), challenge his reality, and make him aware of the danger that was staring them all in the face. And in doing so, he had to stand up to the person who’d spent his entire existence brutally showing Starscream that he wasn’t good enough.

And the only way to do this is to agitate a sleeping giant, and quite literally throw his life away. There is no “A WARRIOR STILL.” There is no “stick against a Transmetal.” Just a lonely, cast off Decepticon warrior whose last moments are raging at the heavens, and then an all consuming, absolute death.

Keep in mind, I’m not disparaging Dinobot at all. “Code of a Hero” is a great story, and one of the best Transformers stories ever written. All I’m doing is highlighting the contrast between two poignant sacrifices and death scenes.

Just. It blows my mind a bit. Starscream knew he wasn’t going to make it out of this alive. He knew he’d never get any peace of mind over the problems that plagued him, and yet, he did it anyway. He had no chance. His null rays don’t even reach Unicron before pittering out.

But he did it anyway.

I have too many emotions…

(if this submitted twice, I apologise.)Manchildren complaining about how having shirtless men in anime threatens their fragile heterosexuality is the funniest thing.  The second funniest thing is the idea that women somehow ruin anime or don’t buy anime.  Ah, the mantears, they flow strong and sweet.
ModT- This is great; also I checked out your blog and your other art is great too.

I dunno… Pretty sure Starscream turned me into a robo-sexual long ago. Then again, I’m a woman, so perhaps the media-influence-synapses in my brain are different. More empirical testing is clearly necessary.
