what I was trying to say was that "importance" is an issue of personal taste/judgment.

what you feel is important may not be the same as what someone else feels is important.

I could never understand the concept of fanon. It's like watching a movie and pretending you're watching a different movie. What's the point? They wrote that movie so you could watch it as-is, not so you could make up a new story for it. It's like writing a fan-fiction, and then cramming it into the main story. It just doesn't make any sense to me.

to some, whats present to us in the fiction fails to live up to what they feel is the true potential of the story.

some of those people loose interest, other come to accept that the stories arent always good, and others engage in re-writing the story.

I guess its the same mentality that is connected to fasntasy foot ball team games...but I cant say for sure since I know very little about sports.

That makes sense and yet I still can't understand the idea of it.

All I know about fantasy football is that it's Dungeons and Dragons for the guy who beat up the kids that played Dungeons and Dragons.

Wow, this took a life of its own. A great debate about what is and what isn't. Keep in mind that Hasbro has tried to reconcile nearly everything. The Aligned universe is supposed to be the ultimate hog pog of backgrounds, characters and so on.

I look at Decepticons being military hardware as a sort of 'bonded will' because of Quint influence.

I love this conversation. What a nice debate.
