Actively Writing: who tf knows anymore
Icon by my lovely gf Katiemonz!
Katiemonz, Yamiii, and myself have started a Sonic
Katie and I (and Kiera), have also started a Sonic Harry Potter AU blog (sylvaniaschoolofmagic.tumblr.com). It's basically Sonic's world with an infusion of magic and other cool stuff. It's a multimedia project that uses both art and writing to tell its story, and we're almost done with the first year/book. Please check it out if you have the chance!
NEW: Katie, Kiera, and I have finished our Sonic Fangame! Go here to play it! (katiemonz.tumblr.com/post/166883856399/katiemonz-its-party-time-the)
NEWEST!!: I did a collab with this kills the man over on their Infinite askblog on tumblr. I've posted the writing I did for it here, but go check out the post to see the beautiful comic Ace drew! (askinfiniteofficial.tumblr.com/post/167097233695/homebound-created-by-theashemarie-and)

Hikami42 is the shared account of my friend (Yamiii) and I. We used to write Sonic fics together but now that's dead.
General: No need to ask me if you can draw fanart for my stories! Go for it! Just make sure to tell me about it so I can put a link to it here. Share the love!
You guys honor me so much with all of your art!. (I can't draw a straight line.) I cannot even express the amount of thanks I want give each and every one of these people, so, in a feeble attempt to express my deepest gratitude, links to your pictures will forever be on my profile. Go give these a look and shower your praises on these people!
Katiemonz, gifted human being, has gifted me with art for some of my trash oneshots. Be sure to give her a yell if you like them! (I swear she drew all of this before we started dating. We met through this hellscape of a fandom so it's not so bad.)
Denial (katiemonz.tumblr.com/post/146767653724/denial) is of my trash recolor OC Sonar from the identically named oneshot. He has since grown to become a mascot of sorts for Katie, Kiera, and I.
*NEW* The cover art of Survivors was done by my marvelous friend TheBlurredLine23! They has more art on her tumblr so be sure to check them out! (Find it here: theblurredline23.tumblr.com/post/147607657405/here-it-is-the-cover-for-asexualinklings)
Winter Spirit Says Hello was drawn by the beautiful Katiemonz and it's absolutely stunning. Please go show her some appreciation because I can't properly articulate how much I love this! (Find it here: hikari-san42.deviantart.com/art/Winter-Spirit-Says-Hello-502200006)
The new cover was also drawn by Katie because I actually updated the diddly darn story. (Find it here:
The Genesis of a Generation:
Go here (hikari-san42.deviantart.com/favourites/51570687/The-Genesis-of-a-Generation-Fanart) for all tgoag fanart.
CloudyCrayon has decided to do a series of pictures based off of scenes in TGoaG. In an attempt to keep some semblance of order when it comes to them, I'll be listing them in chapter order. They are all insanely adorable and you should go look and squee with me!
Taken Hostage is a perfect representation of the desperation of this scene in chapter 19.
The following pictures were drawn by other folks, but they are just as amazing! Thank you so much again!
You're safe with me T2 is a lovely picture that was drawn by Darkwingfan. (Also based on chapter 36.)

Currently: Enrolled in a creative writing MFA program. Improving my writing a bit every day.
Call me Ashe. She/her. I'm a gay asexual with the greatest girlfriend ever. Everyone should read her work and ogle her art. My best friend is really cool too. Also my child Blurry deserves tons of praise. Basically I'm the mom of the Sonic fandom.
In the Future: I've been writing for ten years and it’s become a large piece of my life. I can’t see myself doing anything different, so I hope to become an editor and writer.
My fics: are about Sonic the Hedgehog. I take pride in original ideas and twisting cliches. My focus is the bigger picture--the domesticity of life and the deeper meanings that come from the deeper reflections of characters. I get uncomfortably inside heads and focus on inner motivations while also fleshing out characters to be more rounded. I'm just really interested in the scenes between scenes; the stuff that usually gets skipped over in favor of plot.
What does this mean for Sonic? He is not a jerk. He lives in the Workshop. He considers himself a big brother and protective figure in Tails' life. He is sarcastic. He is not jaded. He mumbles in his sleep. He's obnoxious and difficult when ill. He is humbly prideful. He has profound thoughts and a large vocabulary. He reads. He sits still and has deep conversations with his few friends. He is not stir crazy after a few seconds of laying on the couch. He likes idleness and enjoys mundane moments because his life is one big adventure after another and even he needs a break. He runs. And runs. And runs. Not away, but toward. Toward his friends, his destiny, and his fate. He's not disjointed or emotionally separate from his situations. Did I mention that he's not a jerk?
My longer plots are usually involved while still being linear. My focus is usually on oneshot collections, as I like to form a larger story out of smaller ones. However, I do write continuous tales as well. No romance. No OCs. Game-verse is my bible. Sonic and Tails brotherly to the end. Also, the OVA rocks my socks.
On Characterization: if you read some of my older stuff, you'll see that I was an angst baby about everyone being out of character. I always made notes about it. I always tried to excuse it. Often, I would get people assuring me it was fine but I probably didn't believe them. The reality was, I didn't believe my versions of the characters weren't like everyone else's and they were just this side of wrong when it came to canon. Now, don't misjudge me: they weren't wrong in the sense that it was bad. They were wrong in the sense that they weren't right. They weren't spot on.
It's taken a few years, but now I know why. My characterization is bang on for the way the OVA (the 1996 movie) characterizes Sonic, Tails, and Knuckles. Tails and Sonic bicker. Knuckles is an active friend in Sonic's life. Sonic is lazy and a bit grouchy and snappish but he still has a good heart. Sonic likes to lie around and likes to complain, even if it's good-natured. He's critical of everything and doesn't necessarily go with the flow as much as games Sonic. This is the Sonic I write. If you're expecting the Sonic of the games exactly, you'll be disappointed. However, I may be biased, but I think my Sonic is pretty swell too.
There are certain aspects that most of my stories will hit (because I have a comfort zone), and they've come to be trademarks of sorts. If you see any of these in a combination, then the fics are probably mine:Sonic/Tails brotherly Knuckles (he's my fav, so he's always fit in in some way even if he's not necessary. don't underestimate me on this.) Snarky Silver (there's untapped potential here and I am smashing the spigot in) Chaos Theory (i.e. deeper thought on Chaos Energy and how it behaves) Aspects of Mobian culture (holidays, food, lifetime milestones, how it differs to western human society, general development, technology advancements, etc.) Set world map, which has been explained in one of the notes on Foray. Complicated Sonic characterization. (He's now in 3D!)
Very short and tiny FAQ
Katiemonz is your girlfriend huh? How did you meet?
Apologies, but we're keeping this to ourselves for the time being. We did meet through the Sonic fandom, but that's all I'm saying.
How long have you been writing?
Since 2007, so about ten years now.
So, you're a grad student? What are you studying?
Currently, I have a B.A. in English, and I'm working toward a Masters of Fine Arts in creative writing. Go figure.
I’ve been around the block a few times when it comes to the Sonic archive, and I can pretty much talk about all of the major (older) fics by name. However, for brevity, I’m only putting up a few fics that I think every Sonic writer/reader should look at.
Rising Star by JudasFm – whether you’re new or you’ve been living under a rock, you need to read this one. It is one of the most well known Sonic fics, and for good reason. Spot on characterization, beautiful brotherly bonding between Sonic and Tails, and it stays perfectly true to Sonic 2.
I don’t favorite lightly, so any of the stories in my favorites are winners. These are the specific ones that left a very deep impact on me.
I love all of my stories and I think you should read all of them, but I’ve noticed that a lot of people come around and they don’t exactly feel like reading through the meta that is The Genesis of a Generation for hours on end, so I’ve decided to lump my stories into groups so you can easily find what you’re looking for.
My deepest thanks to you for visiting my profile. I hope you enjoy my work and appreciate my efforts to get better with every word that I type.
Reviews are cherished.
