trans guy IDW starscream is such a cathartic fucking headcanon for me, especially coupled with my thorough deliberate ignorance of people refusing to let his fantastic character arc come to a conclusion screeching venomous gremlin who wants what's his at all costs, dammit, trying his hardest but constantly falling on his ass (usually because bungling up some backup measures, or planning too hard, or being too fixated), yet somehow still around gleefully plotting and making failsaves, and ultimately coming to the conclusion of "well things could've been a certain way but they aren't, so to hell with that"? would ideally have eight thrusters? killer legy? affinity for capes? defensive as all fucking hell to what he earned? voice from a dumpster? why yes, gimme that good hot relatable shit.
