This looks fun.
I found this on Tumblr and just had to show it to Pepper. She promptly gave me Skyfire/Starscream. XD For convenience's sake, I'm fudging things around to fit some hypothetical maybe-war-period-ish-but-probably-not, since we have no canon on pre-war Them and they'd, well, be too busy shooting each other to grouse about whose turn it was to wash the petri dishes that day.
Give me a ship and I’ll tell you:
Ahaha. XD Well, given that we see Starscream cooking up all the ingredients for gunpowder in canon, I'd say he'd be able to - whether he'd have the patience for it on a daily basis instead of just a mad one-off whirlwind of culinary creative expression, I doubt. XD If they were human, I'd bet it'd be Skyfire doing actual day-to-day cooking, if either of them remembered to, but now and again Starscream turns the entire kitchen upside-down and comes up with some bizarre masterpiece that shouldn't work but does.
Who does the laundry and other chores:
See above re: Starscream's tolerance for daily chores. XD He's probably got SCIENCE!-type things he cultivates and works on daily quite happily, but if it came to boring domestic nonsense he'd wave it off. Or, if it were absolutely necessary, he'd do it grousing and grumping and yelling all the way, or dump it on Skyfire. XD Who would try to keep on top of things, because he's the responsible sort, but he's just as likely to get swept up in a project but way more likely to think about the household stuff outside of his SCIENCE!-focus. XD
How many children do they have:
I admittedly have a soft spot for tiny noisy bitty Seekerlings, as well as ferociously possessive mama-grizzly Starscream, but depending on the wheres and whys of the 'verse it'd vary. XD Skyfire'd be absolutely overwhelmed and awed at one; he'd be constantly having to touch and peek in on it to make sure this tiny little thing he and his partner had made was still there and really theirs, but Starscream's not one to do things by halves in my head and would likely try to repopulate Vos single-handedly if he could. XD I WILL RULE THE UNIVERSE EVEN IF I HAVE TO MAKE MY OWN ARMY DAMMIT.
Who’s more dominant:
Starscream's certainly the loudest, bossiest and crankiest, but Skyfire has his moments of implacable will-not-back-down. Starscream's the unstoppable force and Skyfire's the immovable object. XD
Favorite nonsexual activity:
SCIENCE. Though that leads to sex too, so maybe that's not such a good example. XD
Their favorite place to be together:
The lab, or somewhere high and open where Skyfire can sit and Starscream can sit on him.
Skyfire is a jet perch. Whenever he sits still long enough and Starscream is pacing or working or just finishing something off and Skyfire's still in one place, Starscream will come over (still working or talking or ranting about whatever it is) and sit or lean on him. Though that's more gravitational pull than 'tradition', as such.
Starscream thinks Earth music is beneath him and the concept of having 'A Song' in general ridiculous, and Cybertronian music doesn't work like that. Skyfire finds the 'Our Song' thing puzzling in an alien custom kind of way, but listened very gravely when Spike and Carly explained it.
What they do for each other on holidays:
When they're on Earth, Starscream puts Skywarp out of action so the idiot can't stuff glitter and foil hearts everywhere on Valentine's Day. Skyfire introduced Starscream to the concept of mistletoe, and they spent a comparatively tranquil morning discussing the idea and the berries themselves. They're both bewildered by Easter and both find it very creepy in varying directions. (And are confused by the bunny.)
Where did they go for their honeymoon:
They didn't exactly have a honeymoon, but the 'verses where they bonded they did it while they were out on a long-haul survey, so in effect they spent their honeymoon Science-ing on alien planets and smooching on the cusp of planetary rings.
Where did they first meet:
In the Science Academy. Skyfire heard Starscream before he ever saw him. (Most, on hearing this, ask why he didn't turn around and head in the opposite direction then and there.)
What do they fight over:
Depending on the canon? The Autobots, the Decepticons, the humans, politics both personal and otherwise, scientific theory, just who forgot to sterilise the equipment after they used it last time...
Do they go on vacations, if so where:
Skyfire looks mildly surprised at the notion of travelling and NOT doing Science. Where's the fun in that? ...Starscream secretly agrees, but makes a fuss about Skyfire being Boring and insists that wherever they're going, it's to somewhere that involves a lot of flight time either on the way there or after they arrive.
