Personally I think it depends, maybe an OC can be a Prime if they exist in alternate universe Although if you wanna keep in canon story line then I don't really recommend to do so, since it'd be very complicated and may not make sense;;
The Pure Thirteen is the unbreakable wall from times to times, if you want to build up a story about your PriMe OC, please... don't put your's in the same line with the Original Thirteen. No modification, no implementation. Same as Sentinel, Zeta, they're not pure and original, they were keeping a fake Matrix given by Alpha Trion during the time of donimation. Base on them if you want to make a story about the lost Prime. So many people overpowering their characters as Prime although they're not worthy, they're worthy of holding a fake matrix
Well then thanks for clearing that up instead of blowing into my face and saying my OC is shit. I really do want help on this, hence why I asked but you got to admit that it's hard to read that comment in a polite way. What I got from is is: your oc sucks whatever you do and only canon primes are okay. I didn't know the fake matrix was a thing in TFP. I thought that was movie only lore.
No because our OC not worthy. Doesn't matter what. Primus not picked you, you ain't nothing. Yeah, OC are nothing. And it's not ok for them to be a Prime. My OC your OC everyone's OC, we ain't nothing.
There's many Primes before Rodimus ( cause he's the LAST ONE ), they all PICKED by Primus. They are WORTHY, they are CANON. OC have NOTHING to do with CANON, OC have NOTHING to do with PRIMUS. And OC isn't WORTHY.
You can over power your OC, but they will never worthy with the title of Prime. Never be and never will.
if your OC being chosen by Matrix : v This is the first time I comment on this kind status again after I totally wanted let it go a while last month... Your example very impressive until you realize all of them had the matrix.
Hope you gonna understand what I talking about, Lumen-Terra. ( I am not always say full name except they seem special in my eyes )
Thanks for trying to help me. It's all confusing and I don't think we get what we want from each other. After being told my OC is shit I'm scrapping the whole fanfic. But I appreciate your trying to help me. Thanks for your time.
