order can be tricky. best i can comprehended is Megatron: Origins, All Hail Megatron, Dark Cybertron, which then splits off into More Than Meets the Eye which is going at the same time as Robots in Disguise, which then goes into Windblade.
In same ways it is and in some ways it isn't because even though we now have a more established character arch it seems some writers are struggeling with the adjustments tot he characters and when they can't comprehened they fall back on old character traits and completely ignore the story arch which can be really ignoring. so there is some inconsistancies when the writers change hands but overall i like it.
we also now have a reasonable explanation for the fall out between megs and star!
but no, prowl was always in camp 'Megatrons an a*****e'. but again, no one listens to prowl so now he doesnt bother to share anything with anyone and just manipulates people from the shadows, which they generally do not care for. hes the one who put rodimus up to smuggling overlord aboard his ship which was the crime drift took the fall for.
The Seekers are indeed brothers, making their fallout even more tragic. It started when Starscream started distancing himself from everyone, then Thundercracker started having doubts about the Decepticons in general, then Skywarp shot TC when he tried to leave, then Skywarp was hooked up to the ship and hasn't been heard from since (that we know of), then Starscream became Lord of Cybertron and appears to be loosing his s**t (even more so than usual), and TC is living in seclusion on Earth, his only friend was Bee, and now he's dead.
I would LOVE for a new chat system but then I might never get anything done! cat_sweatdrop
At some point in Skadi's character arch she ends up the object of affection for a troll barbain who is NOTHING like the dashing prince she'd envisioned for herself for so long and they basically end up creating the family from the movie "Brave" when she gets a child on him that is basically Meredith and then he later gets a litter of three on her, and they all basically have Skadi's massive ivory curls and his large teeth!
so now im thinking of cute curly haired troll babies with shark toothed grins.
thundercrack tried to leave the decepticons, skywarp found out and shot him but TC lived and Bee helped him recover and bonded with TC. Skywarp was later hooked up to a ships engined and used as a warp drive for a war ship. He's still acting as a living war ship engine. Starscream is Lord of Cybertron and so very lonely.
Bee died in the same fight that killed Metalhawk.
TC is living on earth. He has a dog named Buster and writes terrible self insert fanfiction.
remember that autobots have some pretty deeply ingrained prejudices and that Drift is a mech from the gutters, an ex-decepticon, and a turncoat. for some people, nothing Drift ever does will overshadow where hes been and what hes done, and he is keenly aware of it.
Perceptor also has a huge crush on Drift but being Perceptor hides is very well.
Bee is dead, breaking Thundercracker's spark in the processes, as he was rather enamored with the camero, and its not yet clear if is Bee will be back as gold bug.
Grimlock has amnesia and is currently traveling with a group of misfit cons called the Scavengers.
Shocked me as well, I always figured Soundwave for a yesmech.
Drift already knew. hes in love with Rodimus and Roddy used that to manipulate Drift into taking the fall for him. Since Drift is an ex-decepticon most of the crew didnt trust him anyway and were eager to believe he's screwed them over.
Rhinox is supposed to show up in the next installement but so far theyre the only chars from Beast Wars though theyre not the only beastformers, who are also an oppressed minority.
actually, no one appears to be listening to Optimus. At all. he is very frustrated by this.
