IT'S A REBOOT NOT A PREQUEL [Audio]
With the news that Bumblebee is a reboot, reena_jenkins and shmaylor yell, laugh, and have feelings about many many possible futures for Charlie and Bumblebee. (Coherence and plot not promised)
This is an oral not!fic, meaning it's an audio-only work where we made it all up on the spot. There is no written component, but if you'd like to write anything based on our ideas, PLEASE DO, we'd love it.
(See the end of the work for more notes.)
Recorded at Podfic Winter Chillfest 2019, this not!fic has everything: charlie goes to college, there's something in the corn, extremely brief cameos by wingedwords and blackglass, the mechanics of human-robot sex, wtf is a boilermaker, JOHN CENA, what social activities to do with your robot boyfriend, Memo-is-not-a-love-interest-but-is-still-important, unkindness to Optimus Prime for no reason, but what if they became weapons smugglers instead, our inability to remember anyone's name, continuous feelings about Back to Life, and BEES.
We laughed a lot making it, and hope it makes you laugh too.
