Sorry I took so long to update! I bet you thought I abandoned the story!

Tachi: Sammy, will you kindly do the honours?

Sammy: WRONG!

Tachi: Now to the disclaimer!

I'm too lazy. Blah blah, broke, can't afford Sonic let alone the whole company, wish I had Shadow, blah. What did you expect, a billionaire author?

Chapter 12: The last sugar rush

Gaming world

After the random stuff happening in Chapter 12, (which involved dragons, puppies and exploding walls) the team were now plotting a way to get rid of Black Doom, and fulfil the prophesy of…well, of chaos.

"…" Fluttershy mumbled.

"What's that? You'll have to speak up." Shadow looked at the pony, and he only heard faint whispering as she repeated her sentence. And it's a known fact here on Fanfiction that Shadow has sharp hearing.

"What?" He asked again.

"..." Fluttershy repeated quietly. Shadow just gave up, and turned to the others. Everyone else had taken out a large Monopoly game board, and were now playing a game.

"That's my house now. Snatch!" Tachi snatched a house from Akemi, and he sighed, as the jackal took his shiny counter as well, which looked like a hat.

"MONOPOLY!" Swift yelled, grabbing the fake money, and flinging it everywhere. Reshiram facepalmed with his wing, and shook his head.

"Can't you wait until someone's won the game to do that?" He asked. Swift shook her head, and threw the money around again. Shadow was not amused as colourful paper dollars flew into his face, nearly giving him a paper cut. He finally lost his patience.

"ENOUGH!" He yelled. They all glanced at him, while Swift continued throwing paper money. Akemi finally got fed up, and knocked the author out with his guitar, while Tachi stole everything that was shiny off the game board. Shadow waited until everyone was paying attention, and then he spoke.

"Reshiram told me what Black Doom was planning earlier…and I'm sorry for listening to him. There's still that pizza he promised me though…" Shadow went into a daydream about fresh pizza.

"Get to the point already!" Sammy shouted, impatiently.

"IDEALS!" Zekrom added.

"It's the end of the game. You know what this means…"

"Wizard lightening battle?" Tachi wondered.

"No, wrong trailer."

"Kurata's going to get owned by a punch to the face?" Akemi asked.

"We're not talking about Digimon-

"WAIT! I have it!" Sonic interrupted.

"What, faker?"

"Sonic 06."

Shadow just death glared at the grinning hedgehog, and then punched him in the face, knocking him out again. Everyone stared in silence as the poor hedgehog landed on the floor, with a black eye on his face.

"The next person to interrupt me will get strangled. As I was saying, it means an epic last boss battle. We have to head to the Black Comet!" Shadow dramatically pointed to the ceiling.

"And then…this crappy game comes to an end."

"How do you know it's a game?" Tachi asked.

"Plot hole. Or breaking the fourth wall…take your pick."

"By the way, Einstein…HAVE YOU THOUGHT OF HOW WE'RE GETTING TO THE BLACK COMET?" Sammy yelled in Shadow's face.

"No…but we could just teleport there with the Chaos emeralds. I have all of them…but not yours."

"And I'm not going to give it to you."

"Shiny." Tachi sighed, holding up a red Chaos emerald so it glinted in the light. Sammy just stared at her.

"…How did she get the emerald?" He asked.

"Tachi's an awesome thief. You should know by now that shiny items tend to vanish around her." Shadow walked up to the happy jackal, and snatched the jewel from her.

"HEY!"

"Find something else to stare at." Shadow held the Chaos emerald up in the air, and was about to do a Chaos Control, when he realised Tachi was eying his inhibitor rings.

"Can I have-"

"No. Chaos control."

There was a bright flash, and everyone except for Fluttershy vanished.

"..." She said, walking off to see if she could find a way back to Equestria. From a far distance, Discord watched the pony, and smirked to himself.

"Time for a little trolling…" He muttered, flying after her.

Black Comet

Shadow teleported everyone behind a random rock inside the comet. He peered from behind the rock, and sighed in annoyance as he saw dozens of Black Arms soldiers patrolling, making a few occasional growls to each other.

"How are we going to get past them?" Tachi asked.

"We use the force." Shadow simply said. Tachi then realised that there shouldn't be air in space, and began silently chocking, while Akemi fell to his knees

"….Zekrom and I are right here, you know. What are we, chopped liver?" Reshiram complained. Shadow just ignored him.

"Anyway, joking aside, we'll have to be careful going through the comet…" Shadow looked behind him to see Akemi dying dramatically, Tachi mouthing like a fish out of water, and Sammy lying on the ground, while Swift looked indifferent, and read a copy of Inheritance.

"You can stop suffocating now, there's air…" He explained. Akemi got up.

"Erm…how are we still alive?

"Plot hole."

"Hang on, I thought sound couldn't be heard in space."

"Plot hole."

"There seems to be a lot of plot holes…" Sammy grumbled from the floor.

"Deal with it." Shadow put some sunglasses on for some reason, and looked epic.

"So…we just have to sneak past the guards, find Black Doom, defeat him, and then I can arrest Shadow- I mean, congratulate him." Sammy said.

"Easier said than done…"

A few seconds later

"SMALL LEECH THING ON THE WALL!" Swift yelled, dramatically pointing at a Black Arms leech.

"UGLY FOOTSOLDIER TRYING TO KILL US!" Tachi yelped, ducking her head as a soldier tried to shoot her head off painfully.

"FREAKING IDEALS IN THE SKY!" Zekrom roared.

"OH SHINING AMATERASU! SAMURAI GIANTS!" Akemi added, seeing a giant Black Arms soldier waving a sharp and pointy sword at them. Shadow growled angrily.

"VACUUM GUN! IT SWALLOWS STUFF!" Swift shouted randomly.

"Will you lot stop overreacting? You're drawing their attention!"

"KYUREM!" Sammy gasped, pointing at a large grey ice dragon snacking on nearby aliens. Kyurem hissed at them, and continued eating his dinner.

"Can we please skip the level? This is just filler…" Shadow sighed. Swift turned to the others.

"It was my birthday on Tuesday!" She announced happily.

"Like we care." Sammy muttered.

"…Meanie." Tachi whispered.

"No one celebrated my birthday. I didn't get one tiny pair of socks. So why should the reviewers and I care about some author's birthday?"

"¬_¬"

"You can look at me like that, but really…not one single damn was given that day."

Approximately one point one seconds later, Sammy ended up with Kyurem sitting on him mysteriously.

But finally, after there was nothing, literally nothing to say about the level, apart from bottomless pits, more random filler that would be good in sandwiches but would taste of Mountain Dew, and Shadow slowly losing his patience and sanity, the small group reached Black Doom.

The strange thing was, Sonic and Company were there already.

"HOW THE HELL DID YOU GET HERE BEFORE US?" Shadow roared in fury, seeing Sonic's smug expression. Sonic pointed to a lift.

"FUUU-"

"DON'T GIVE HIM THE EMERALDS, SHADOW!" Amy interrupted. Shadow flashed red for a few minutes while hissing, and turned to Black Doom.

"Black Doom! This madness ends now! You've sent me on pointless quests! If it weren't for you, I wouldn't be listening to these idiots, I would be angsting under my epic tree! I BLAME YOU FOR THIS!"

"AH, THE LITTLE RAT HAS TURNED. I WAS WONDERING WHEN YOU'D DO THAT. I NEVER HAD ANY PIZZA TO BEGIN WITH, IN THE FIRST PLACE. I'VE BEEN FOOLING YOU THE WHOLE TIME, AND IT TOOK NEARLY FOURTEEN LEVELS FOR YOUR PUNY MIND TO REALISE." Black Doom laughed, while Shadow's eye twitched.

"GASP! Plot advance!" Tachi gasped.

"NOW THEN…I'LL TAKE THOSE EMERALDS OFF YOUR HANDS, AND CONQUER THE WORLD WITH THEM. DESPITE BEING A POWERFUL WARLORD WITH THE ABILITY TO MANIPULATE CHAOS ENERGY, I NEEDED THEM TO TELEPORT THE BLACK COMET TO THE PLANET…"

"Er…right…you're going down, Black Doom!" Shadow snarled, getting ready to fight. Black Doom just laughed. Shadow growled and leapt at him, before landing on the floor a few inches away from him.

"What…? I can't move…" He said in shock, trying to squirm. Black Doom towered above him, and took the hedgehog's Chaos emeralds. He laughed evilly while Shadow looked puzzled.

"I CAN CONTROL YOU LIKE A PUPPET…DO YOU UNDERSTAND SHADOW? YOU WERE CREATED FROM MY BLOOD! THAT IS THE TRUTH!"

"That can't be…impossible…" Shadow muttered in denial. Doom looked at the shocked group, while Swift continued to look indifferent, and read her book.

"I HAVE A PLEASANT FATE FOR YOU MORTALS…" He hissed. Sonic tried to do an attack, but found that he was paralysed.

"What?" He shouted.

"…I think I need someone to turn this page for me. I'll try blowing on it." Swift blew on the pages of her book, until it flicked to the next page. She kept on reading, while everyone panicked, unable to run around like headless chickens.

"How will I stalk- I mean, hug my beloved Sonic if I CAN'T MOVE?" Amy ranted. Sonic glanced at her, and wished he could slide away.

"You're a DEMON, Black Doom!" Sammy shouted.

"SCREAM ALL YOU WANT. I THINK YOU'LL BE DELICIOUS SNACKS FOR MY OFFSPRING. KIDS…IT IS TIME FOR DINNER." Black Doom watched as several leeches squirmed up, making small growling noises.

"Ewww!"

"Great Chaos, what are those?"

"They're the unholy spawn of Nazo that crawled out of a dark pit!"

"THEY'LL DRAIN YOUR LIFE FORCE SLOWLY…BEFORE DEVOURING YOUR PRECIOUS LIMBS. ENJOY."

"Wait a minute…" Sammy realised Tachi was yawning, and scratching her ear, even though she shouldn't have been able to move.

"JACKAL, DO SOMETHING!"

"Huh? Okay." Tachi turned into a rat, jumped onto Sammy's head, and started doing a shuffle dance, while 'Everyday I'm Shuffling' played in the background.

"I DIDN'T MEAN THAT, YOU IDIOT!"

"…WELL, THIS IS UNEXPECTED. I NEVER THOUGHT A SMALL…WHATEVER THAT IS, WOULD OPPOSE MY POWERS." Black Doom said thoughtfully.

"Oh, Tachi's DNA is so screwed up, it defies the law of plot." Akemi explained.

"HEY!"

All of a sudden, when it seemed the good people would get eaten by leech things, a TV screen placed rather conveniently over Black Doom's head, turned on. A guy with a long grey moustache appeared.

"ZOMG, it's that old guy!" Amy realised. The man's eye twitched.

"I hope no one called me old…I will be VERY cross." He grumbled. Shadow looked up, and his mouth fell open.

"Professor?"

"Anyway, I hope this camera is working. Maybe Shadow will see it one day, pull off a Deus Ex Machina, and get rid of Black Doom!" Gerald hinted.

"…W-what?" Shadow wondered.

"Anyway…Shadow, it falls to YOU to defeat Black Doom! Long story short, he wanted a loyal servant or something, and I might have made a small mistake. But the important thing is…YOU HAVE TO SAVE THE WORLD!"

"…Really?"

"I know you must be standing there with a shocked expression on your face, probably lost your memory, and Black Doom is controlling you. But you can fight it! You're my son!...Bye."

"Well, that was awfully short." Maria commented off screen.

"Has anyone seen my coffee?" A voice yelled in the background. Gerald sighed, and turned the camera off.

"…What's a Deus Ex Machina?" Tachi asked innocently. Shadow narrowed his eyes at Black Doom, who was speechless, and he flattened his ears down.

"I'll show you…" He snarled, suddenly stamping on the leech about to chew on his leg and squashing it.

"THIS CANNOT BE! I WILL NOT BE DEFEATED!" Black Doom shouted, teleporting and leaving the Chaos emeralds behind conveniently.

"I'll go after him…and finish what this game started!" He growled.

"So, you're going to leave us to DIE?" Sonic yelled at him.

"Yes. Because I hate you Sonic." Shadow concentrated, and turned into Super Shadow. He flew off, leaving some still paralysed people behind.

"…The blobs are going to eat us!" Amy whispered.

"I don't think so…plot hole, please." Akemi said. A large grey Irish Wolfhound appeared, with a revolver in his paw. He shot at the leeches while epic guitar music played in the background.

"Thanks, Revolver! Good boy!"

"Woof!"

"You trained your dog to shoot a gun?" Sammy stared at the strange sight.

Final Epic Awesome Boss: Black- I mean, DEVIL DOOM!

Shadow caught up to Black Doom, and slowed down as he saw a two headed dragon thing standing on a random mountain, roaring and laughing manically.

"…THE HELL?" He screamed.

"SHADOW…MY SON, YOU HAVE FAILED ME! I WILL NOW PAINFULLY KILL YOU WHILE TELEPORTING AWAY WHENEVER YOU COME CLOSE!" Devil Doom roared, teleporting away.

And so began the longest fight in the game. Every time Shadow got near to Doom, he would Chaos Control away, before flinging things like important research papers, rocks and aliens at Shadow.

"STAY STILL!" The super hedgehog cried in frustration.

"SHADOW! Even though it's a plot hole, we're able to talk to you because Tails has a device thingy!" Sonic's voice rang across the sky.

"Ah, not annoying boss advice!"

"Aim for its eye! And we're sending Reshiram to help you!" Sammy added. The great white dragon appeared next to Shadow, in a burst of flame.

"Shadow. Are you willing to face the bitter, terrifying truth?" He asked. Shadow nodded firmly.

"Then let it begin."

Devil Doom stared as Shadow got onto Reshiram's back. At that moment, this was the closest picture you could get to epicness being drawn. Super Shadow, riding a giant dragon with the sky a blood red colour, with the sun mysteriously eclipsed, while every single choir in the town sang I Am All Of Me with guitars playing.

…To put it simply, it was more awesome than Ash Ketchum riding on the back of a armoured dinosaur-polar bear-dragon-goose-werewolf great white shark hybrid with flame throwers on its legs, lasers shooting out of its eyes, in space, while Chuck Norris played a guitar, cookies rained down from the sky, while the hybrid and Ash Ketchum WERE ON FIRE.

Words couldn't describe how epic the final battle was.

And then suddenly, another epic sight appeared. Shadow watched as light shone down from the heavens, and Rayquaza descended down, with an Umbreon and a Pokemon Trainer (who was a fox) on his back. The green sky snake dragon thingy began shooting Hyper Beams at Devil Doom.

RANDOM INTERRUPTION!

Akemi stared at a bottle of Mountain Dew. It stared back. He eyed it until he couldn't take it much longer, and drank the whole bottle. A crazy look came into his eyes, he picked up his guitar, and started singing.

My lovely video games, my lovely video games, ahhhhh…

CALL OF DUTAY! *guitar* I used to wonder what badassery could be!

CALL OF DUTAY! Then we all took a LASER arrow to the knee!

Awesome epicness!

Lots of weapons!

Skyrim and Minecraft are just SO EPIC!

I'm on a sugar rush!

This doesn't rhyme much!

AND VIDEO GAMES MAKE IT SO FREAKING COMPLETE!

CALL OF DUTAY!

I'M SURE YOU KNEW, MAKAROV'S A MAGNIFICENT JERKWAD….!

And now we return you back to the story.

After the boss fight

"Wow, I feel sorry for anyone who missed THAT fight." Tachi commented.

"Yeah! Especially how Zekrom appeared towards the end, Shadow summoned a Robot Unicorn, and there was a double rainbow all the way!" Swift cheered.

"And don't forget how Rayquaza and that fox incinerated Doom!"

"Yup. Such a fight won't be seen again for a century…" Sonic wiped what looked like a tear out of his eye.

In the ARK

Shadow looked out of the window at the planet. He had done it. After much questing, annoying side characters, filler, and Black Doom, he had survived fangirls, memes and ponies…

And he had won the game.

He looked down at an old photo.

"I won't let my past hold me back any more. I know now what is my purpose…to Domino's!" He said dramatically, dropping the photo and teleporting.

Two weeks later, the long suffering hedgehog was run over by a car, and he lost his memory. Again.

Sonic was relieved to hear that he would star in another game as a main character. He had heard his fans speaking in hushed whispers about the arrival of Sonic 06.

Which was sure to be full of adventure, rescuing princesses, and time travel back to the future!

But that was for another story.

It's completed…*collapses on keyboard*

Tachi: This chapter could have taken another month, but we used the power of Mountain Dew, willpower and filler!

Another story complete!...Or IS IT? Don't worry, I'm just messing with you guys. TO THE CREDITS!

Extra?

Tachi looked at the reviewers and smiled in a sinister way.

"What if there was an OC story coming up?" She asked, polishing what looked like an Inhibitor ring from Shadow.
