Did you know Sonic is 18 years old this year? Happy Birthday for June 23rd, Blue!
Many moons later…
As everyone expected, and true to form, Eggman busted himself out of jail a few weeks later. The authorities were not worried however, the doctor would slip up sooner or later and they would be ready.
Even now Eggman was sitting at his desk in one of his other secret Bases, (I don't know where, it's a secret.) looking at his files, trying to come up with yet another hare-brained scheme to take over the planet. He scrolled down the files, nothing seemed fitting, even if he did come up with a brilliant plan, Sonic would foil it and he'd be back to square one.
"Oh, what's the point?" He mumbled, pinching the bridge of his nose hard. "Why do I bother?"
"My, my, Eggy…Not giving up already, are you?" Soft giggles filled the room, the sound bounced off the walls making it hard for him to pinpoint the intruders' location.
" Who-- What are you?" He asked, his hand slipping under the desk for his spare laser pistol.
"You forgot me? That breaks my heart, that does." The giggles came again, this time coming from somewhere behind him. "It would, if I had one."
"So we've met before? I demand you show yourself!"
"With pleasure, my handsome Doctor." A small fireball lit up in the dank shadows, it flew around and was joined by others to create a bigger one. It settled and light footsteps approached. A figure stepped into the firelight; her golden eyes gleamed at the sight of him. "Hello again, Ivo."
"You? But you died, I saw it happen…How…?"
The creature flexed her mighty bat-like wings as she moved towards him. The fire orb followed her, back- lighting her slim build and her long hair, giving it a misty, silver shine.
"So you do remember me. I'm so trilled." She frowned. "Not." She sat on the edge of the desk, smoothed down the front of her figure hugging dress and grinned showing rows of fangs. "A large amount of raw Chaos energy has brought me back from the dead. Now that I'm here, I want revenge and you, my dear Eggy will help me."
" I will? But you know you can't rust me. Look what happened last time,"
"I'm well aware of last time, this time will be different because we will have the ultimate weapon." She purred with delight."Have you ever heard of the being… Dark Gaia?"
Eggman snorted,"Didn't work when I tried to use it last time, what makes you think it will obey me a second time?"
"Think, my darling. What happened when you unleashed it?"
He thought hard. "Well, the Chaos Emeralds lost their powers, the Earth spilt into seven pieces and Sonic under went a very odd transformation…" He stopped suddenly; slowly a smirk grew on his fat face. " The rodent turned into a beast of pure evil, if I could infect him again and figure out a way to control him some how …" He was already typing on the keypad. " This could work,"
"Make sure it does, Eggy. I will be back when you're ready."
He looked up, "You're not staying?"
The woman -- Celosia-- backed away into the shadows once more. "I need to rest, in the mean time… We'll need a powerful army to battle the Freedom Fighters, I had a look in your files and Project E-NET looks very impressive. Until the time is right…" She faded away, giggling and took the fireball with her.
Eggman sat alone in the dankness of his office. Project E-NET was one of his first pet projects. He looked it up, scrolled its context, and then sat back with a smile.
Project E-NET would do nicely. All he needed were some lab rats, those on the planet below who would not be missed. Namely, the homeless.
Uncle Chuck checked the charts, and then checked them again. With a sigh, he adjusted the wires of one of the many monitors surrounding the stasis chamber and looked sadly at its contents.
Sonic was naked and sleeping behind a wall of frozen glass, and had been ever since Chaos had brought him back from The Void via the Master Emerald on the Floating Island. From the start of his coma, his vital signs were normal, the only thing that had changed was he was a deeper shade of blue and white markings had appeared on the tips of his quills and the tops of his wrists.
The elderly hedgehog took off his glasses and wiped his eyes with the back if his hand. Giving Sonic one last look, he picked up another medical file and strolled up to the surface area. Making himself a cup of coffee, Chuck settled into a chair and proceeded to flick through the papers. He had opened the folder when a light breeze ruffled his fur; he looked up over the table and smiled softly.
"Hello, your highness."
Queen Amy sat opposite him in her ghostly form once again, her face covered by her shawl. She nodded, "Hello, Sir Charles. How is he?"
"Vital signs are normal, considering what he went through. Care to explain why you did what you did."
Flash back…"No! Stop!"
The Emerald sent out a mast of green misty tentacles that surrounded the hedgehog, most coiled around him holding him in place while two curled his head.
"NO! Please! Don't do it, stop!"
He wriggled against its mighty strength, but to no avail. The Emerald drew him inside itself and the two arms crashed into his skull, into his mind. Sonic howled and arched upward, tears streaming down his face. He forced his eyes open and looked at her; his memories of their time together were wiped from his mind and they turned glassy.
The Emerald gave a flash of light and released him; he fell and was unconscious before he landed safe in her waiting arms.
" You wiped his mind?"
Amy held her head in shame and sniffed. "I'm sorry, Chuck, I really am but it was the only way. He can't remember any of it, most of all me."
"But why you? That's what I don't get; if Sonic can't know you, does that mean he can't ever know you? He can be a friend to our young Amy, can't he? And in time they can become more, right?" It slowly dawned on him. "Unless…"
She smiled sadly. " They can't… The balance can't be jeopardised again. There must be a world where Sonic and Amy can never be romantically involved. I'm sorry for his loss, I really am."
Chuck sighed deeply. "So am I. Go on, then, tell me what happen to my beloved nephew."
She took a deep breath," The Anarchy Key draws power from Chaos energy; when Sonic unleashed it, the power wasn't enough to close the portals. As a result he was stripped of his own Chaos powers to compensate, when the mind wipe happened it was too much for him to take and he slipped into the coma. It… might be permanent."
"Permanent?" He rubbed his chin," That's very bad if Robotnik tries something." He sighed deeply. "We just have to hope he'll pull through. Now I have one question for you…what about me? I came here via The Void--I do like the sound of that--and I'm still here, why didn't I get sent home?"
" You are needed here, Sir Charles and don't worry. The version of Sonic from Knothole knows you're safe," She frowned slightly. " For some reason he's putting a lot of trust in his gut. Is this a guy thing?"
Chuck let out a bark like laugh, "That's my boy! Always thinking with his stomach. If you say I'm needed here, then I'll stay."
She smiled. "Thank you, Uncle Chuck. We souls walking The Ghost Roads sense something is coming to this realm, something big and shining and new. An army is rising to brave the on coming storm."
"So Eggman's building another army, we've beaten him before and we'll do it again."
Queen Amy flickered, "Not an army like this. If Sonic hasn't recovered in time the combined forces of G.U.N and the Freedom Fighters won't be enough, you'll need help." Her smile reached her eyes, making them sparkle in the light. She hummed softly." Expert help, which is why I've sent an SOS. Even as we speak he's riding the Time Winds in his marvellous--if oddly box shaped-- ship to get here." She flickered, her time almost up. " I have to go."
He raised a grey brow. " Wait! This expert, does he have a name?"
Before Amy faded completely, she whispered two words to him. Just two, and for some unknown reason, those two words gave Chuck a small sense of hope.
Those words were…
Okay that's your lot!
Celosia (from Saving a Rainbow…) has come back from the dead and that's not good.
Could Were- Sonic be making a comeback? And who is this Doctor?
I'm gearing myself up for my first ever crossover! Keep your eyes pealed for it later in the year.
Catch you later! Mazz84 XX.
