I like this take on the characters. It feels like it could be the aftermath of Sonic's friends going insane without him as their rock, although I know that's not really the angle. While I do agree Shadow would value Amy, I think the Shadamy is a bit forced/contrived, especially on Amy's end. The romantic angle wasn't really the best imo, but otherwise, great stuff. Way ahead of its time.

I love this story. Im a big Tails Fan and this evil Tails in tis Story is great. Tails is the No.1 of the EGGMAN-Fanclub :)

Wow, the drama. I just have one question; Are you a Sonic hater ? Oh, I don't judge you, it's just that all Knuckles, Tails and Shadow have been saying and doing was so harsh toward him, it confuses me. I'm not sure of what I should be thinking... Still, I find this story very nice and full of good originality and well-done interactions and emotions, not even a bit of OOCness !
And I'm also a sucker-at-romance so I understand your discomfort. But no worries, this chapter was as great as the story itself !

Yes, yes. This will satisfy my hunger for delicious Sonic fan fiction...
Anyway, enough of that, I really enjoyed this piece. Lots of good stuff in it and it was a different idea and perspective than what you get from the average Sonic fan fiction. Bravo! Bravo indeed.

This story is brillant. Your taking of what we all know, and twisting it in an unexpected way makes this piece sing in my mind. I will admit, I've passed over your story several times in the past, the title and descripting bringing to mind a comedic rampage that would fall apart in time.
Then I read the first chapter.
The conflicting emotions of Knuckles where what got me first, the cursing while simultaneously weeping creating a VERY tangeable feeling that I could relate to. Then you deconstruct Sonic's "sidekicks" in a manner that is terrifying, yet belieavable. Finally, you've got Tails, TAILS, as a villian. I could imagine anyone else, even Cream, evil in some manner, but Tails? Miles Tails "Oh your my hero, Sonic" Prowler? Him? Never. I'm sorry I missed this story for so long, it's to good to be wasted.
But in an effort to curb my enthusiasm for this piece, I feel a few points of criticizm should be added. First, as mentioned, your title and description are in HEAVY contrast to the actual content, something that my spook readers(like me). Second, your transitions from Knuckles to Shadow between chapters one and two is...confusing. Perhaps that was what you were going for, but I initially though the entire monolute was from Knuckles in Chapter 2, it was only until I got to Chapter 3 that I realized who was who.
So, you've written an amazing story that deserves to be on the favorites list of every Sonic Fan, and you've made a couple stumbles. I hope your writing continues.
Thanks for a change of perspective:

I thought this was a great fic. You described everything very well and I was sad when it ended.
I do however approve of where you left it. Ultimately I think a battle with Eggman would have been unnecessary and even possibly harmful to the story.
I loved it and it is now in a nice safe spot in my favorites p

Wow this was great I wish you would contine like 10 years latter or something. But this was a great story.
| Dennisthefox chapter 14 . 7/11/2008
So this excellent story ends with a great ending...I HATE YOU FOR ENDING THIS.
I enjoyed reading this story more than any other and I wait expectantly for your next story!
By the way, I was the one on the poll to say it was good.

So, THIS is how it feels to be reading a favourite fic and then have it unexpectedly curtail without satisfactory plot conclusion.
I would curse you, but the foul stench of my own hypocrisy already brings tears to my eyes.
If this is your 'awful', then please keep writing badly. The visceral descriptiveness of chapter 2 is back in business, and the 'moment of muting' when Shadow tells Knuckles about Rogue... well, as in Chapter 9, I think you have a special knack for describing the absence of sound!
The only real criticism I can level is a technical one, and I'm reluctant to mention it because (my obsessive kind of) slavish adherence to realism tends, I think, to detract from, rather than improve, a story. But in the absence of anything else to complain about: How exactly does the Master Emerald distinguish friend from foe? Shadow is pretty evil, after all.
My favourite part in this chapter is your description of Knuckles' quiet reverence for the Master Emerald, as it's just so spot-on In Character. Close second is the tactical deployment of ellipses in dialogue!
In conclusion: I am sad and angry to see it end. Because 'twas ace.

shame its the end but it was good nonetheless, all shadow fans must be relieved that he still lives - thanks to Tails. this was a good fic and i look forwad to reading more of your work, chow my friend.
| Frozen Nitrogen chapter 13 . 7/2/2008
This is pretty damn sweet. My favourite bit is in Chapter 9, where you have Amy hearing broken sentences 'cos of the ringing in her ears. Just like Shadow's tearing muscles in Chapter 2 were wince-inducing, in Chapter 9 you conjured up the deafness-induced confusion so well that I could almost hear that ringing in my own ears.
As for problems: I can't quite remember where; some time around Chapter 5 or 7, you lapse into past thense when the whole rest of the story is written in present, but that's nothing a bit of proof-reading wouldn't iron out.
More generally, with the language; I liked the first half, chapters 1 to 7, more than 8 - 13. I can't quite put my finger on why... the imagery and descriptions were just as good, so I suspect it's just the sickly taste of ShadxAmy stuck in my craw.
It is a bit sudden; as far as I can tell the entire 'mutual love' thing springs up over the course of about a minute of story-time, and that's a minute while they're being bombed. The romance is really well written... I just think it could be made more believable by stretching it out a bit longer.
Also: evil Tails reminds of Darth Vader. In a good way.
Moar chapters plox!
| Frozen Nitrogen chapter 2 . 7/2/2008
Now I've read Shadow's Chapter 2, what I wrote for 'The Sidekick of Someone Else Now' become's obsolite. This is all I was looking for; a little bit of detail about the environment tossed into the monologue mix. That it's pretty much all tactile only serves enhance the impression of horrible agony. I actually winced a couple of times while reading this chapter. 'Mazing.
I also really like the way you only reveal who the protaganist IS piece by piece. It's extremly well done, and I suspect is much harder than you make it look.
| Dennisthefox chapter 13 . 7/1/2008
...I don't have any words left to describe this chapter, so I'll just say it is good!
...I sense the story is ending...NO!
