Fun fact: I’ve been doing this fandom thing for a while.
I mean quite a while. So long, in fact, that I published what might have been the world’s first Transformers ‘zine. Well, I certainly thought it was at the time. It was called Matrix. The first issue came out in 1987 or ‘88 (I can’t be sure now because I didn’t think to put dates on anything back then), and it ran for two issues. I didn’t own a computer at the time, but a friend of my mom’s let me use her Mac Plus. The ‘zine featured art, fiction and other goodies, and considering that I knew next to nothing about layout, it still looks pretty good today. Here is a little tour of the first issue…
The cover, proudly featuring my claim of being first in the world, as well as one of my OCs. The early fandom was really into OCs. Everyone had a Transformer alter-ego, and this was mine. Her name is Spitfire. I was really into WW2 planes at the time, so her altmode is, appropriately enough, a Spitfire.
The all-important disclaimer, hearkening back to the days when fans lived in constant fear of being sued.
Table of Contents…
Editorial page. This is from the days before I was Grayseeker, as you can probably tell, and it features my first attempt at digital art, in the lower right corner. (Sorry about my crap photography, btw. I did my best.)
Mad Lib, Part One, with an illustration by Steven ‘Zigzag’ Acevedo.
Mad Lib, Part Two.
One of my illustrations, for a story called Pilot of the Rockwaves by Steven ‘Zigzag’ Acevedo. This shows his character, ZigZag, having a conversation with Spitfire. (I did mention we were really into OCs, yes?)
Not only were we really into creating OCs, but creating character profiles for them was a pretty big deal too!
Spitfire’s Tech Specs, Part 2.
Every publication should have a Classifieds section, and Matrix 1 was no exception.
Classifieds Part 2. The car that appears in these hallowed pages is my own vehicle at the time, who also (naturally!) had a Transformers alter-ego named Electrofox, which I shortened to “Foxy.”
Last but certainly not least, my illustration of Starscream at the bar.
Hope you enjoyed this little glimpse of fannish history!
imagine being so fucking dumb and claiming that ‘anti-shippers’ are racist and a problem for saying the Absolute Bare Minimum which is ‘hey. dont ship children with adults or incest even if they aren’t blood related. and if you claim thats how you cope, there is something fucking wrong with you.’
yeah there is a reason a lot of anti-shippers are young is because those are the people being most affected by this! Groomers will use pedophilic ships to claim oh its normal you guys are NORMALIZING this shit! Yall are like uwu i do want i want and when children are like ‘hey dont do that it makes us uncomfortable’ yall go like ‘THESE SJW ARE OPPRESSING ME IM BEING ATTACKED’ Fucking Get therapy.
fiction affects reality. block me.
this goes beyond fandom drama at this point like yeah its fictional and something that people will consider ‘not a big deal’ but like people WILL use this as manipulation and usually the offenders are people in their fucking 30s or children being influenced by the people in their fucking 30s. its not okay. its not ‘ship what you want’ its disgusting and you are normalizing this.
Normalize making transphobes feel unsafe
