Is it okay to make a OC a Prime if he/she is already dead and only used as a plot device? 

44%
21 deviants said Yes. There have been many primes before Optimus (Zeta/Sentinel for example) so it's alright if you make one if you need them.

19 deviants said Maybe? It depends on how you write them. It can only work if you don't replace Optimus or make them over powered. Use them as plot device only.

8 deviants said No. The title of prime is off limits.

Personally I think it depends, maybe an OC can be a Prime if they exist in alternate universe Free Emoji 1 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.

NEVER BE AND NEVER WILL.

What's your problem? Did you drink too much coffee or something? 

Since you are so adamant about me using canon primes only then please tell me of one that I could use for my story. He/she has to be older than Optimus and younger than the first primes.

It seemed that you didn't want to get what she was pointing out.
Don't break the Pure Prime's Wall.

Yes yes I understand. They were alive a long time before Optimus so it could work canonically.

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.

I'm writing a story. This is the situation:

My oc is being told a story about a prime (not Optimus) who has been dead for a long time now. 

The Prime from that story would have to be an OC but I'm not sure if I can do that without too much backlash from the community.

if written well it can work
sometimes it's best to just work on what you want than what others think
if you work hard on it and write the oc well, then you have no issues
