Prowl under attack


Hiatus: "Usurper's Secrets." Basically this got killed when evil corporate things happened. However, now that I'm finally, finally free from said evil corporate things, I'm thinking about revamping it with less OCs, more less-known cannon characters. That's a little while down the road, though. Apologies for the really long delay.

Current works: "The Risk In Wanting"

Notes about the differences in "Emotions?" and "The Risk In Wanting":

  1. Over the next several days I'll be converting the time units in "Emotions..." to orn-based, when time units are necessary. I got tired of how often I ended up using the word "cycle", like "cycled vents" and "3 cycles later" and so on.
  2. I had to switch POV from 1st POV to 3rd POV in "Risks" because the muses absolutely demanded mature content on AO3's version of "Risks" (...Jazz...) and I am too repressed to write that in 1st POV.
  3. I also switched POV because the perception of another's action when told through a character's eyes can make them seem meaner than that other character is. Example being Ratchet. I plan to give him more coverage in "Risk" because some readers took him to be an uncontrolled hater, and that was never the intent. The actual intent will be told in "Risks" so no spoilers here.
  4. Tac-set ("Emotions" will later be updated to better reflect this):
    1. An AI that controls the battle computer, simulator, and logic center. I'm using "AI" here to describe an entity's intelligence level higher than a drone but below self-awareness. IDW seems to define it as Automation Intelligence if the subject isn't self-aware
    2. Battle computer for raw data processing.
    3. Battle simulator for simulating real-world application of the battle computer's plans.
    4. Logic center checks everything to make sure there's no errors, risks, overlooked possibilities, circular-logic loops, etc.
  5. When I think of Prowl's emotion filters (end of "Emotions," in "Wanting"), I think of magnetic anomaly detection systems used in air-borne vehicles for water-based hunts, from raw data filtering to rapid assessment. Helps me to think that, but it doesn't belong in the story so it's not going to be stated in any actual fic.

    Just how did I come to that idea for comparison? Because of my background, that's how! I did some work on MAD systems. In order for a MAD system to work it has to filter out Earth's natural magnetism variations, solar magnetic activity, ferrous contaminants in the air, and other ferrous things so it produces a readout relevant to the user about the size and depth of submerged metallic bodies.

    So how am I applying that here? For Prowl, his filters instead filter out typical emotions (natural magnetism variations), most daily normal emotional changes (fluctuating solar magnetic activity), mild emotional response disruptions for uncontrollable events/mechs (ferrous air pockets requiring rapid re-calculation and data filtering for entering and exiting the pocket to avoid false positives or negatives), and such.

    The emotion filter percentages say how much of spark-based emotions are being filtered out: 0% is all emotions from the spark are detected by Prowl because nothing is being filtered so Prowl can't perceive it (like a MAD system giving a positive detection "ping" at every small rock down to a 1000-ft depth), or 100% is virtually no emotion is detected by Prowl because it's as completely blocked from reaching him as can possibly be (MAD system not giving a positive readout even when flying over a sunken cruiser barely below sea-level).

    His typical settings are set so he'll only feel (read) the highly elevated results, be it love, hate, excitement, terror, protectiveness, depression, or jubilation, but also because he has no choice. See end of "Emotions" for reason, but otherwise Prowl's default is little-to-no emotion.

Should Have Known Better by Gimme-Chan reviews
A young Prowl gets ditched in lower Iacon. He's mistaken for something he's not and ends up in Jazz's hands. Too bad that might not be the safest place for Prowl! Mech on mech, yaoi, some dub con...fun stuff!

The Risk In Wanting reviews
Now established on Earth, the next step is syncing the Earth warfront efforts to strengthen other fronts. For Jazz and Prowl, this means there's less shared privacy for squeezing intimate needs, physical and emotional. They realize they need those moments, though, for sanity and comfort, because frankly they're both walking along the edge of (in)stability. (Sequel & Stand-Alone)

Emotions? Out-of-Bounds reviews
Many call Prowl emotionless; few suggest he simply controls his emotions too tightly. Neither is accurate. When the truth is unexpectedly forced out among the medical and officer staffs, how does each Autobot react to the fundamental difference? P/J theme.

When Glitter Attacks reviews
Only Sideswipe can make glitter a torture weapon. Too bad he didn't think there's more ways for officers to get back at him without worrying about protocols.

Search & Rescue reviews
(B4 war declaration but during military ramp over rebel activity) Jazz tries getting ahead so he can be placed in Special Ops, but he can't play the military-politics game accurately for his superiors to see the fit. What's a mech to do to learn how to make it through administrative paperwork, train by their rules, and fight like a Special Ops agent? Get a private instructor.

Just because someone's emotionally stable doesn't mean they're balanced. Few of the Autobots learn that in the wake of a Decepticon attack. Eventual PxJ slash.
