First blog here, and because I touch the fanfiction world once in a while, I figure it would be a good idea for me to see the fandom with more than just the eyes of a kid who grew up on the Unicron Trilogy and the series since.
I've seen G1 and the Beast era as well, and I am trying to look up Robots in Disguise. These series, as have the Trilogy, Prime, Movieverse and Animated that followed, all introduced good ideas, bad ideas and reinvented ideas.
However, I can never really stick to just one era....
What are the best parts of each universe that should be retained if one wants to write a story with elements from each verse?
Eg of thoughts to help me brainstorm and some of my own opinions
G1 I like the idea of their energy search Combiners: I think that idea is very interesting
Beast Sparks The idea of the Beast groups existing Megatron's voice Waspinator
Robots in Disguise (Did I mention I just started watching episode 1?, so I got nothing)
Trilogy I'm a fan of this era's Starscream Megatron's Noble Demon traits at times Hotshot Demolisher
Animated Sari and the general idea of human-transformer hybrids The idea of human threats
Prime The Optimus here Their Decepticon's efficency and origin story for Megatron
Got any recommendations?
