I just found this on someone else's favorites stories, and to be honest, I don't read many Sonic fanfictions, bit this one was amazing. I loved reading it, and you portrayed the characters exactly as I think of them as, save Shadow being a bit kinder than he normally is. But all the same, I liked it and will remember it when I have a bad day to cheer me up.

I liked this story! It had a good flow to it, and I loved the way Shadow spoke. I personally think Rouge and Shadow have more of a professional relationship, at least that's how he acts around her. I had to actually make up my own girlfriend for Shadow after unsuccessfully trying to find one for him in the actual series.
I really enjoys this! Great Job!

Aww that was super cute :) I seen a love square-thingy going on there I think xD I don't know, but whatever it was I enjoyed it nonetheless.
I liked the how Shadow and Amy kissed at the end, then Sonic talks about Amy being his territory. I thought it was really cute and I liked it lots. :) I think you did a very nice job! Thanks for the read .

Absolute poetic perfection. I only wish it was several chapters longer! I liked how you didn't force anything to happen, and really analyzed the feelings of everyone involved realistically. Very, very well done.

I've been suggested to this story by two people, so here I am. This was cute. The writing was fair and simple. But a lot stood in my way and stuck out like sore thumbs. If you plan on doing any ShadAmy scenes in the future, let alone combining relationships like this, you're going to need some pointers on what should not be done.
When you stated Amy and Sonic's ages, I already knew how the story was going to playout. Then here comes Shadow. Unlike the readers say, this story follows the exact same pattern as any other ShadAmy story. Sonic's not yelling, which is good, but it's still the same ShadAmy cliche: Sonic breaks Amy's heart, then Amy runs away. She encounters Shadow, Shadow cheers her up, and then Sonic comes back into the picture claiming her as his own. This is something we see in all ShadAmy fics and it's a cliche that needs to be burned by now if anyone wants to ever stand out or make a good ShadAmy "exploration" like you worded. It's just running in the crowd.
Some of the dialogue between Shadow and Amy were things that I couldn't see them saying or thinking. You already got that from "Jazzy" belong me. Shadow was right, he is rusty in this story.
The fic is ShadAmy friendship (even if it's going far past it in all cut corners), but also Shadouge implied, and yet you're actually implying a lot of ShadAmy significance over your own OTP, making it even harder to see this as 'friendship.' You actually made it seem like the Shadouge part was the 'friendship,' and the ShadAmy part was the 'romance,' so you're running backwards quite a few times during this story. This story actually mixed everything up. Certain relationships between characters aren't making sense in what you're trying to do with them. A lot of it is just mixed up.
So, if you do make another something like this, I hope you'll have improved. I generally read your stories, and sometimes can't follow them, because you don't make me believe the ideas you're reaching for. The supporting evidence or details used to back up your ideas are what shrink my perceptions of it and make me think of just another fan story writing about their "most favoritest couple," instead of what should and would actually bring those couples together.

BLARGH! Correction: it wasn't the ShadAmy INTERACTION that put me off; it was the mental comments and author narration in between that made it still come off unfriendly and a bit hostile with disrespect. The conversation-interaction was really just fine, save for the out of the blue kiss that most ShadAmy writers do use in romance-pace to put everything off its track. But yeah, just wanted to correct that part of the critique.

Unfortunately, this story didn't succeed in 'exploring' relationships or tying all three of them together. The idea is very good, but the execution didn't make it.
I believe in Sonic and Shadow's bond, too. But Shadow isn't going to openly say, "We share a bond even though we're rivals" in the words of a fan who observes them behind a glass wall.
As for ShadAmy, this isn't close to how they would interact with each other until it reached the end, so I can't weave this into being a good "ShadAmy" attempt for you either. You also say this is friendship-oriented, and yet Amy kisses Shadow on the lips and he's reminded of Maria. It would've been more characteristic if she simply kissed him on the cheek, and would've made more sense to stay under, "friendship." So I was confused - You made Shadow and Amy look literally interested in each other, and yet throwing Rouge in the mix muddled it, so I wasn't sure which fan-pairing the story was trying to respect/stay loyal to.
There are also a lot of misconceptions - ...Rouge's eyes are blue. O_o I'm sure of it. And Shadow isn't a robot. Artificial and mechanical aren't the same thing. Unless this was Amy misinterpreting things?
As for Shadouge...well, this is actually one of the stories that influenced me to point out in Manifestos that Shadow and Rouge are not 'close' in the way that stories like these believe. I call these kind of stories, 'fan-whim.' Stories that don't really try to stick close to canon, but fulfill their love for their OTP (which is totally fine. It's fan stories, after all! That's why they exist for!) It's okay to think that as a fan of them, but if we're trying to get canonical and if the writer is seriously trying to make it believable (which I assumed you were by your Author's Note), that's about as far away from it as we're going to get. Shadow appreciates Rouge's support, but he neither lets her or Omega into him and is not close to them personally or socially. Not in the way that Shadouge fans misstep in their fandoms, anyway. That's something that has to be built. They're not 'romantic/close' from the get-go. Shadow is quite distant and adamant to let Rouge in, and it seriously just seems like it's because he's not 'interested' in doing so, not because he's 'hiding feelings/scared of something' as emo-typically appealing as that is.
All in all, a few moments in the story were good and very cute, but over all, I don't really know what to say. It was a good attempt. I just couldn't take it seriously.
