@quietmoon Shipping these two is so awful. Thinking about them having been so close, and then the war and destroying their entire civilization and planet before they ever even get the CHANCE to maybe sort things out (but by then there's so much under the bridge they're basically different people living in a different universe).

tldr the megop fic writes itself and /clenches fist/ when these irl obligations are done it WILL

i think if tf wasn't a universe that centred around war, that in this continuity it could be entirely feasible for them to genuinely sit down and talk their problems out. they could so sort out all of this distance and miscommunication and pain and honest to god PINING, as well as all these problems roiling under the surface of their society. they'd be such a POWERHOUSE together if only the narrative gave them a chance to be joint heroes (even tho that's not tf i know i know ;__; )

ugh just look at them they don't talk to each other and are both so obviously upset about it, feeling hurt when the other doesn't tell them it, they tiptoe around the other but still have that comfortable rapport they slip right into at the same time. every word between them is soaked in history and pining and a nostalgic bitterness UGH

megatron's pining taking on a resentful edge, feeling like orion just didn't CARE, and orion feeling like megatron has just moved on, has become someone he doesn't recognise anymore. their communication skills are so poor and they're really suffering for it hhhhhhhh

their modern interactions are so... like, pulled back. hesitant. reserved, that's the word. like they both have so much to say but they can't bear to, and the words come out so stilted. optimus keeps bringing up their past and megatron almost goes to deny it. it's rly sad ;__;

hc that they actually are/were almost lovers. they've kissed, had so many late nights of Almost, but the pulling of their mentors and their different places in society, coupled with megatron's passion and optimus' shying from his own, was a hurdle they tripped on every time

they've been together since they were born, like that's the gist of what they're saying, that they've been around for each other's lives from the start. and their interactions so far coupled with this panel and then this page, the last one,,,, the ship writes itself, oml.

this was in an issue dedicated entirely to him reminiscing with his mentor (like, godmother?) about how much he loved megatron and their long past together and that one time he held hands and impulse skydived with megatron, i'm still skjfkljhgd

i really love this. an iconic hero of the franchise saying 'i see my flaws and i'm working on it and it's okay to admit that, that i need to get better and i'm trying to, that there is space for something more here'. that maybe being an unfinished project is a good thing. <3
