That moment when you see your drawing with the description translated to Russian somewhere in the depths of the interwebz (insert a photo of a curious owl).

Thank you, hun! I won’t delete them from my dA, I still like them. But I need an almost empty gallery to motivate me :)
I removed all my anime drawings from this blog because I’m during the process of changing my technique and everything.
In my head canon Drift doesn’t mind being viewed as a religious nutjob. Only a few people on the LL know that he’s actually high on drugs most of the time. Sadly, the stress he’s dealing with because of having Overlord on board and his other personal issues made Drift return to his addiction. Sometimes he’s experiencing epiphanies and hallucinations. In order to mute his grief and loneliness, he clings to them desperately. After all, he has a lot to regret.
Re: Wing is not a cutie.
Brandy’s done another amazing image of this pairing which frankly there is just not enough art out there of.
Beyond that she makes some very valid points that I wholeheartedly agree with. It’s hard not to love woobified fanon!Wing, I do too. But he isn’t canon accurate and I think people forget that. I’ve done a ton of character analysis for him for RP reasons, and though I won’t spew it all here (I will in a separate post if people are interested), I’ll say that YES. He’s flawed just like any other character. I always play him as having regrets for having to remove Drift’s agency and effectively become an oppressor in order to show Drift a better way. But though he regrets the necessity, he’d do it all over again the same way because he feels it’s what’s right, and beyond that, perfectly entitled to do so because he’s more ‘enlightened’.
Whenever I’ve play out this ship in RP it’s always with angst and schmoop and lust combined, and getting past their heavy history is a hurdle that either breaks them or brings them together. They both have apologizing to do, and finding a way to treat each other like equals instead of what they were before.
But in the mini? Yeah. Generally speaking, Wing tops in my mind. He’s clearly the more dominate personality. On that note, the thing I love about this image? Is that given their posture you’d assume—traditionally speaking—that Drift is the dominate/top in this scenario. But their expressions tell a completely different story to me. I love any image that defies the classic definition of topping.
Thank you for your comment! It seems like there are many fanon misconceptions about Wing, like for example that he’s the best swordsmech around, where in fact, he’s the first one to be defeated in the battle. I’m not saying he’s not a good swordsmech, but in the comic Wing is depicted as a brilliant boxer in the first place. That’s what Wing wanted to show Drift, and their sparring is a demonstration of Wing’s power not “an opportunity” for Drift to escape.
Y-yeah… it’s good to know the image shows who’s controlling whom, just as planned. >v< Thank you again!
Wing is not a cutie.
I’ve seen many sugary pictures of Wing. I have absolutely nothing against fanservice, but the image of Wing as a cute creature is not accurate. Having drawn a couple of cute pictures myself, I wanted to make something different for a change.
If you’re familiar with the story, you may notice that Wing broke Drifts ego in many ways, including physical violence and making Drift dependent of him along with some indoctrination going on. I can’t perceive him as an angelic character anymore. And looking at Drift, he’s pretty vulnerable to manipulation. You see, he isn’t the smartest character in the Transformers continuity, but adjusting to the situation is what he does best. So I believe that Wing saw Drift weak points and he knew exactly what he was doing and saying.
So for me it’s always wrift not drift/wing.
Size does matter!
What if Chromedome actually continues to harm himself by doing these mnemo-autopsies just to have loving Rewind pay extra attention to him? "Cradle" a link to original post with my long comment.
