Apparently James Roberts once intimated that the holoavatars in IDW represented the Cybtertonians chosen gender. This meant that Cyclonus is female, as are Bumblebee, Sunstreaker, and Bluestreak. Of course, I can no longer find this tweet or the Tumblr post where I originally saw it, but it got me to thinking. What if the only reason why Cybertronians have been consistently referred to as “he” is because of a limitation of language (after all, people in the West tend to fight back against gender neutral third person singular pronouns) and the fact that male is the cultural default. We see this when Caminus is introduced and the Caminans (Caminusans? Camis?) refer to everyone as “she” because that is their default gender. Now I will admit, I don’t like the Left Hand of Darkness thing that IDW then went on to do - the literal Men are from Cybertron and Women are from Caminus explanation, but we’re talking about my personal headcanon here and, thus, I will ignore what I damned well feel like ignoring!

Hopefully I will be able to get all of this across well and without offense. Please feel free to comment. Especially if you are not cisgender, because I can only imagine your point of view of this and I want something less offensive than is often seen (and yes, I am looking in the direction of Furman). Also if anyone has any thoughts on gender and holoavatars that's be great. So far my plan is to go with what has been presented in IDW, but I'm making it up for those who haven't been shown yet. So far I am focusing on the Combaticons and making Onslaught and Vortex female and Blast Off, Swindle, and Brawl male.

So I am finally starting to feel better and have gotten back to writing a little. I am currently working on a fic request "Smokescreen/Swindle - The Good Old Days" for Ultharkitty and then I will start on "Anything with G1 Lambos and/or Bumblebee" for Aerylon. I've also been contemplating jumping fandoms and trying my hand on some Fallout 4 ficcage.

Yes, a game has eaten my soul and I have been lost to it. Now, yeah, I know that fans from the old, pre-Bethesda days of the game have issues with it and yes, it does have some pretty hilarious (and sometimes oh so frustrating) bugs, but I'm enjoying a pretty much open sandbox survival game. I love the moral options and that you have so many paths that you can follow. I mean, yeas, I absolutely adore the Bioshock series, but it really is a bit of a railroad. In Fallout you really can do just about anything. Including killing and eating annoying NPCs apparently. No, I haven't tried that yet, but it is an interesting option to have. And I will admit, it has been very tempting to do something horrible to Knight Rhys and Marcy Long -- honestly, more Rhys than Long.

All that being said, I do with that there were more than four dialogue options. I would love to be able to ask Preston about the Brotherhood or the Children of the Atom (yeah, I know, minor characters but still a semi faction). I would love to be able to let Rhys know that I was a lawyer/soldier and probably do have a rudimentary understanding of Latin mottoes (in my mind Nate was a Marine). I would love to be able to have a minor breakdown after the first fight with the Deathclaw and to be able to do more to comfort Nick. ... Basically there are a ton of questions/actions I'd like to take that the game doesn't allow for. One noted example is when you run across the Gunners who are running a toll on a bridge. Your only options are to pay or kill them. Why can't I just acknowledge the cost, apologize for stepping in their territory, and then leave? I mean, yeah, they're likely to still shoot me, but then I can kill them in self-defense rather than have it be murder. Why can't I offer to hug Nick or Cait? And why can't I ask Codsworth how he stayed sane for all these centuries?

So, yeah, there are a lot of questions and that's leading to a lot of bunnies that might lead to a Fallout 4 Novelization fic. They're probably a dime a dozen, but I figure it can't hurt to try. Maybe it'll be an idea for June Camp NaNo or for the real NaNo in November. the Adventures of Nora Rigg, Sole Survivor and former JAG lawyer (hey, it's as good an excuse as any for how she's so good with those guns!)

In other news, work is trying to kill me and I am doing the work of four separate people/positions so I'm more than a little stressed and that is effecting my writing output. That means that the above plans are going to be slow in coming. But they are started, so that's a start, right?

And lastly, I may actually post a picture of myself for the first time at some point later this month because I am allowing a section of my hair to go silver and I will (if all goes to plan) have a Rogue-like stripe in my hair by mid-May. I'm not exactly comfortable with photos of me but if this works I'm really going to want to share!

It's funny how my muses seem to be interchangeable with no notice whatsoever. So, here was the plan for September - I was going to start World-Building for my NaNo novel so that I could start plotting out the novel and not be caught flat-footed. Again. And I did manage to get some World-Building and some character creation done. So all good for October's plotting, right? Nope! Now that all that's done my Novel Muse has been replaced with my TF/MCU Muse who is demanding a massive amount of attention, and she's being prodded on by the "You Remind Me Of Someone I Used to Know" muse. Apparently they take place in the same universe or something.

So the plan for October seems to be to plot out the TF/MCU fic because I can't get Humanized-Combaticons taking on Hydra and AIM out of my head. Hopefully it'll work out, and maybe one day it'll see the light of day!
