Hello everyone! I am LilyRosetheDreamer, a fanfiction author for a good many years now. I'm twenty two years old with a Psychology degree and a mountain of unfinished stories that I'm hoping with all my heart to get finished.
Anyway, I like a wide variety of media and my favourite colour is red.
Unfortunately, the majority of my stories are on temporary hiatus, while I go through a few to complete at a time. Honestly, all of them at once were a bit too much for me.
I have a Tumblr account here: , so any questions or conversations you want to have, please do so! I am also on Deviantart on the same name (that is undergoing a bit of an update and sort through, so hopefully it looks a bit better now).
Guide to Everything Fanfiction…Sonic the Hedgehog.
A guide to help authors with fanfiction.
As some of you may know, I am LilyRosetheDreamer, one of the longer-term residents of Fanfiction.net. I have observed and read over the five or more years (I think) that I have been here and I have even produced works of my own. I cannot help but notice the repetitions of mistakes that appear over every fanfic section and having made some of those mistakes in the past (hopefully learning from them as I go), I wish to extend my gained knowledge to others, especially the newest fanfic authors coming up and making themselves known. So here is a guide to help the Sonic the Hedgehog section with their troubles of writing, reviewing and others.
Firstly, the most important thing of all…the actual written piece.
I have seen some fanfics in my time here and as I can't go through them all, here are the subjects that crop up the most and must be treaded carefully through in order to appease your fanbase (or attract a fanbase). There are good fanfics and there can be bad fanfics and these tips should hopefully see you through:
The story line
This is your first major hurdle in writing a good story. A creative writer can have THOUSANDS of ideas streaming around in that noggin of theirs and you must exercise caution to avoid falling into a fanfic 'trap zone' as I like to call it.
To start with an example, let's go with a common storyline – the Sonic characters in high school. Now, I have read many of these and I have read many in disbelief (As a rule, I do NOT mention names to prevent many feelings being hurt and general bad will so don't expect them!). Many high school fics fall into the Pitfall of Emptiness – in other words, there is no reason whatsoever for these characters to be in high school at all. They are just thrust into 'Emerald High' etc with no clue how or why they are there in the first place. Confusing, no?
Now, not being a member or SEGA, I have no idea how the world of Mobius is governed. If it is anything like Earth, the Mobian children should go to school. Taking into account the Sonic characters, the schools they would or could go to could look a little like this:
Sonic (apparently aged 15 in Sonic Heroes) – high school.
Tails (apparently 8 in SH) – elementary school.
Knuckles (apparently 16 in SH) – high school.
Shadow (ULF/immortal) – possibly able to skip education.
Silver (age unknown although seems young) – uncertain.
…And I could go on forever. You see, it is extremely difficult to know where to place these characters in education. Because of this, authors tend to experiment and/or guess what situation these characters would be in. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. The methods I would recommend are:
If you are REALLY desperate to put Sonic and co. in high school, then PLEASE use a good/valid reason for why they are there. It is no good saying that they randomly got a letter from the government or G.U.N saying that they must go to school as they have been breaking the law since birth or blackmailing them etc.
A good idea I saw put to use was undercover work set by G.U.N to Sonic and co. This is a creative reason for Sonic and friends to appear in school BUT this must be used wisely. For example, it's no use plonking Mephiles the Dark (he is counted as deceased) or Dr Eggman as the new suspicious principal as neither would be interested in teaching or trying to achieve world domination from a high school. May I recommend suspicious alien activity as a reason for Sonic and pals to go undercover as students? I can see them being willing to act upon this.
If you are going to put Eggman as a teacher or principal, try to think of an in-character reason as to why he would make such a move. I might have missed a valuable reason for him being there after all.
What the characters get up to.
Now that they are settled into whatever schools are appropriate (if it is just a high school, use the older characters as students – the remainder are either too old or too young.), it is time to put them in various activities or interactions with other students (who will have to be OCs but I will get to that later).
The important thing is for them to remain IN-CHARACTER. It would be unwise for Shadow to suddenly join every club in the school or Sonic to turn into an angsty loner. Shadow is the loner type (if he could be counted as a high school character) so he would not make 1.5 million friends by the end of the first day. Sonic is the cheerful, friendly type so he would try to make new friends and possibly join a club to really immerse himself in the role of student. Try to make their reactions to lessons (and lessons themselves) as believable as possible to save your self from embarrassing flames.
Moving away from high school, these characters act OOC in many romance stories as well. Which leads us to…
In any story, the pairings that happen are ultimately up to you. It would be wise however to consider these very carefully as not all of them are believable (some bordering lunacy) or are over-used.
Some pairings that can be used well are:
Shad/Amy (there is a hint of fondness for her by Shadow in SA2 that could be taken as the start of love).
Shad/Sally (this is canon in the Archie Comics at one point).
Vector/Vanilla (canon in Sonic X, though may be one-sided).
Tails/Cosmo (definitely canon in Sonic X).
Tail/Cream (the age difference is acceptable and could be used as a form of childhood romance).
Knuckles/Rouge (canon in the games and anime so you're in luck!).
Silver/Blaze (hints of attraction in Sonic the Hedgehog 2006).
These are but a few you could use. The ones I would stay away from (especially if you are a first timer) are:
Any yaoi e.g. Sonadow (there is NO canon attraction towards each other AT ALL, though I do not criticise others for using this pairing).
Any form of yuri e.g. Amy/Rouge (read above)
Any incest (most canon characters are not related).
Son/Amy (you'll see why).
Shad/Rouge (read above)
Knux/Tikal (read above)
The last three may have confused you.
Surely they are good for fanfiction?
As I hinted in the above list, Shadouge could be used as there may be slight canon attraction, but unfortunately the interaction between them can really be seen as friendly (borderline flirty in Rouge's case as she will flirt with any man) and that's it.
SonAmy is the same, only Sonic has bluntly said no to Amy's almost crazy advances (apart from Sonic Chronicles, where SonAmy fans can make Sonic fall for her charms). He does not want to be with her as he is free-spirited and that is that. Knuckles is related to Tikal so it could be frowned upon. Don't put these couples together just because everyone else is.
These are very fragile subjects to broach as OCs can easily go into Mary-Sue/Gary-Stu territory and go horribly wrong.
Let me give you a parodied example (after all, you may as well have fun reading this):
'Sunshine Daisy Unicorn Ruby was captivating in almost every way. She had no faults-she was perfect. Her sparkling sapphire eyes batted long, perfectly curved eyelashes and her smile melted even the coldest of hearts. Her wavy golden hair flowed like a beautiful waterfall and when it swayed as she stepped delicately down the sidewalk, it flung its beauty and softness everywhere, even finding its way to pedestrians on the other side of the street. Any other person would have been disgusting for flinging hair everywhere, but not Sunshine Daisy Unicorn Ruby! After all, she was like a choir of a thousand angels when she spoke, so everyone scrambled for just one lock of her hair, wondering where such an angel could have sprung from…' etc.
This random Mobian (who is the most common form of Sonic Mary-Sue; a hedgehog) who I just made up is a Mary-Sue in looks and personality through and through. If you want an OC which can be believed by your fanbase, give him/her realistic faults in looks and personality e.g. a small scar or quick to anger. If you want your OC to be loved by a canon character or another OC, make them attractive to that person…but let's not go overboard, shall we? Don't make them fall in love instantly. Believe it or not, that's called a fairytale. If you are going to have romance for a first time character, make another OC for that and have the first OC be friends/enemies with the canon characters for now to be on the safe side.
Once you have had experience with your OCs, you can maybe pan out what powers/abilities they have. No normal living thing can be good at absolutely everything – they have to have believable weaknesses. Even a character with fire powers can get stabbed if they are not careful or some unfortunate events occur.
For example, an OC can be good at Math but suck at English or average at every school subject (they could also be abysmal at everything as some people can't get to grips with any school subject at all in real life). They could have elemental powers (or choose which element etc) but they are not adept at using them and are in training. On the other hand, they can just be ordinary Mobians with no fighting skills whatsoever but can socially support others. Also, try not to give all of your OCs tragic/emo pasts as that's been over-done and after the third character whining about how their parents are dead, it gets tiring. Either way, they have to have weaknesses to balance them out, otherwise they catch the dreaded Mary-Sue/Gary-Stu disease.
This is an issue which isn't addressed too often. Some fanfics fall into the cliché crossover trap i.e. Sonic/Harry Potter. I doubt these crossovers will ever occur in the games and it is nice to imagine how they would occur. Unfortunately, after the third Sonic/Harry Potter fanfic, people can become very bored.
I would suggest Sonic/Death Note crossover as I have yet to see that and it could be very interesting. Shadow has the type of personality to be lured into Light's position…
Again, keep the characters IN-CHARACTER; although a believable out of character situation can get the go-ahead as every one of us can act OOC in life.
And now, last but not least in the fanfic section…
Grammar (Spelling, punctuation etc):
This is one of the biggest problems on Fanfiction. You can have an excellent storyline, but if the author uses text speak (OMG ikr?) or you cannot read what's in front of you, then you quickly lose interest. Unless you have a valid reason for the misappropriate spelling, like dyslexia (I applaud you for having the courage to keep writing if that's the case) or being unwell and tired, you have no excuse for letting down readers.
Here are some does and don'ts:
1. NEVER use text speak. I know from talking to other users on this site that this is considered a hated crime.
2. Always remember to put capital letters and full stops in your sentences. If you are unsure, ask for advice.
3. If you are uncertain of how to spell a word, either use a dictionary or ask someone to spell it for you.
4. Please use spell checker on Word or whatever programme you have.
5. Back this up with a dictionary.
6. If you are still in doubt, beg someone to beta read for you. They will be kind enough to spot any errors.
Now to move on.
Reviews are everything to an author. It helps them see their mistakes and can give you a happy glowing feeling inside when the reviews are good.
If you are going to review or read reviews, there are a few tips to consider:
1. First, try and actually review. A short review is just as good as a long, timed one. It is common courtesy to do so.
2. If you can help it, DON'T flame. Flames cause arguments and hurt people's feelings and I have seen some nasty reviews in my time.
3. If you really feel that the story is bad, please tell them so in a POLITE, friendly reply and back up your reasons why.
4. If you get flames, ignore them or send them a polite, friendly reply (if you have to) to thanks them for their time and that you will consider what they have said. They can't get mad at that, can they?
5. Constructive criticism is GOOD. Authors may not always appreciate it but they can't call you a bully.
6. Give at least one good point and one bad point.
7. Listen to constructive criticism and at least think about each point before deciding whether or not to ignore it.
These are just a few tips but these will help create a more stable environment therefore soothing nerves and easing tension.
Finally we look at forums. These are great for socialising with others and can be helpful for when you are stuck. Unfortunately, some are repetitive, boring or a place for bullies. Here are a few rules for forums:
1. When creating an RPG forum, it is similar to a fanfic; the characters must stay IN-CHARACTER and the story must be easy to follow and exciting.
2. Try to give them a structured path as some RPGs have gone sour trying to wait for others to catch up with what's going on.
3. Chat forums are not a place to start fights and pick on others. If you don't get along with someone, agree to disagree and leave it there.
4. Do not drag others into petty fights. It just makes them feel awkward and upset.
5. DO tell the moderator if you are being bullied as they can take the necessary steps to deal with it.
6. Trolls are relatively simple creatures and are easy to deal with. If a troll starts stomping all over your forum, ignore them. Believe it or not, these people thrive off annoyance and anger and bask in attention. Ignoring them means you are stripping them of their ammo.
7. If they persist, tell the moderator and let them get rid of them as they see fit.
And…there you have it. A guide to fanfiction and everything it has to offer. I did not have time to cover everything and this is where I am opening the field to all of you. If you wish to question me further or have any sensible suggestions I haven't thought of e.g. storyline advice – LET ME KNOW! I will answer in a message reply as best I can. As a bonus, the best suggestions will get posted in a bonus chapter for everyone to see next time!
So please…review and ask away.
By working together, we can create better fanfiction for everyone.
Thank you. X

He is Fermat’s adoptive big brother (taking him in after Chris died) and is currently acting as his mentor too, teaching him everything he knows.

Bio: Was born to Jane and Tyler Matzy and they noticed her unusual abilities when she was a toddler. They were very caring but worried about what others would do to her, so they forbid her to show her power. She was lured by the idea of the Earth Knights and that was how she met Alan, her boyfriend. When she found out there were others like her, she started to wonder about the origin of her powers. Was something else behind them? Perhaps…
Likes: Romantic comedies, macaroons and using her hammer.
Dislikes: Being bossed around.
Royal: Part of the Aranian Knights in the Royal Universe. If she marries Alan, she will become the Queen to the High King. The final word would rest with the High King and High Queen, but she would still have a good amount of power.

Name: Ross ???
Age: 20 (technically six years old).
Species: Human (White British).
Personality: Quite a broody sort, but with a tough personality to match. He is good-hearted, but struggles with his strong beliefs about justice and “getting the job done”. He gets flustered and awkward in uncomfortable situations and doesn’t always seem like a social butterfly. However, in recent years, he’s mellowed out and grown, in happiness and confidence. Probably due to the support from friends and therapy - as he had/has many issues from past events in his life.
Powers: The ability to manipulate and control light itself. One of his key abilities is changing into light molecules when he needs to be stealthy or quick. Because of his light powers, he is able to see and communicate with spirits. Research is still ongoing as to the relationship between the two.
Talents: Music and writing.
Appearance: Due to being an experiment, he has some rather odd colourations to his hair and eyes. His eyes are turquoise while his hair is naturally a deep green. Tends to keep it tied in a ponytail, but he has cut it short before. Tall, but not as tall as Stephano and Todd and Mark.
Bio: Was a government experiment, created by Professor Andrews and his six colleagues. He never had a childhood, due to being released from cryo-freeze as a fully grown twenty year old, although he had some innocence around him due to never being allowed out of the base. Unfortunately, that innocence didn’t last, as an accident involving him and his powers ended up with all six of the Professor’s colleagues being killed. Totally beside himself, Ross was restrained and sold out to SWORD, the secret agency working under the UK Government, by the Professor. Escaping, he went on a rampage of grief and anger and caught the attention of the Earth Knights, who managed to calm him, thanks to Rowenna’s gentle nature, and took him with them. SWORD still keep tabs on Ross and have sent people in an attempt to recapture him, none of them successful. He has fallen in love with Rowenna but hasn’t ever revealed that to her, due to being unsure of how to cope with these feelings and fear of being a bad partner.
Likes: Playing the piano, quiet time after a busy day and a good fight.
Dislikes: Crowded places and meeting strangers.
Royal: One of the Aranian Knights. If he marries Rowenna, he will be King. He finds that prospect intimidating. Has the same past as the Main AU, for some reason.
Victubia: A student in the Victubia Magic Academy. Born with a rare, unheard power over Light and as a result, has found it difficult to find anyone to help him with that. Also has Green Magic. Originally from Ekard.
YouTuber: One of The Adventurers. He particularly likes old castles and gets really creeped out going into hospitals and asylums.
Name: Celeste “Whisper” Brannigan.
Species: Human (White Australian).
Personality: Can be naïve and is very curious about everything, which has led her into trouble before. Always does her best with every task she’s given.

Name: Mark Davies.
Species: Human (White American)
Personality: Strong-willed and always tries his best. Can be selfish when it comes to household chores or just doing the little things to help people - not on purpose, but he often doesn’t think to ask or to act upon observation.

Talents: Football and making 3D animation.
Appearance: Blond with grey eyes and quite muscular. Tall, but not as tall as Stephano or Todd.
Bio: Born in Los Angeles, Mark joined the Marine Cadets (and eventually the Marines) to serve his country and to hopefully travel around. His division worked with the Earth Knights once or twice and he eventually was approached by TinTin, who asked him to join. At first he said no, but as he became closer to the Guardians themselves, Elyon in particular, he found himself changing his mind.

Royal: One of the Aranian Knights and a Lord of the Court. One of the Aranian Army’s Commanders.

Name: Luna Eskola.
Species: (Human) White Finnish
Personality: Calm and collected in every day life and gets excited when going to the beach or fairgrounds. Sometimes loses faith in her abilities, especially if an event goes wrong, causing her to lose focus. This makes her a bit of a hindrance in battle if this happens.

Talents: Swimming and making jewelry.
Appearance: Has short blonde hair and likes to wear little bows (different colours for different days). Her eyes are hazel.
Bio: Was born in Finland to Frans and Adda Eskola. Unlike some of the other Knights, Luna’s power didn’t show until a later age when her life was unexpectedly put in danger. It took a while for her parents to get used to the idea (not out of any spite, just concern) and they all agreed the Earth Knights would be a great place to help her hone her skills. They’re very proud of their superhero daughter, who is also studying to be a lawyer. She has a girlfriend in Finland who she tries to see as much as possible. There may even be talk of marriage on the cards…

Name: Cyber Meyton
Species: African American

Powers: None. He fights using a mech suit created by Fermat and himself. While not as extensive in engineering as Fermat, he does dabble and enjoys it.

Team Fortress 2 profiles (completely different to my fancharacters).
Name: Felix Paris.
Hair: Dark brown, almost black.
Appearance: Always wears his RED Spy uniform and mask.
Personality: Very quiet to the point of not talking and shy around women. Has unipolar depression (in Spy Down and sequel - name unknown at this present time) and is loyal to any team-mate. He will hide if frightened outside of battle, but can defend himself.
Talents: Hacking, spying (obviously) and drawing.
Bio: Was born in France (location unknown) in 1982 and had a normal childhood apart from being bullied in school as a child and was very close to his grandmother until she died. Joined RED after being found by their hiring services in 2009 and trained to be a Spy. Joined his first team but unfortunately got a frosty reception as they weren't very trusting of Spies in general. Was ignored to the point of deliberate exclusion and, along with other contributing environmental factors, developed depression. He was transferred to his current RED team after waking up one morning to find that the old team had left for their new base without him. His crippling shyness has prevented him from making friends as of yet, but that could be about to change. Is indifferent to BLU and will interact with them when necessary.
Likes: Sketching, baby animals and his new team.
Dislikes: Being ignored, his old team and spaghetti.
Name: Bryn Jones.
Appearance: Wears the RED standard Sniper's uniform, but with a red kite feather tucked into the left breast pocket.

Talents: Sniping (obviously), knitting and cheering people up.
Bio: Was born in the North Wales valleys in 1978 and grew up normally. Became a Sniper for the army when he was twenty years old and was chosen by RED's hiring services to be part of their war. He is well-known for cheering people up when they're down and is friendly to everyone, but doesn't really know how to deal with Felix as the Spy won't talk to him or anyone else. He has a close friendship with the RED Soldier and has a habit of knitting everyone new scarves whenever they go somewhere cold/winter arrives.

Dislikes: Being back-stabbed in battle, being interrupted in his knitting and falling over in front of others (which is often for some reason).

Talents: Running (I'm way too obvious, aren't I?), dancing and capturing intel.
Bio: Was born in Boston in 1992 and has seven older brothers, who he idolises. He's a mama's boy and is constantly knocking things over.

He became the Scout in 2010 and is the youngest member of the team, the second being the Pyro.

Bio: Was born in Ohio in 1979 and grew up listening to his father's war stories. Ended up joining the US Marines and served for a limited time until RED found him, impressed by his abilities and discipline.

He's often seen hanging around in the gym or planning their next attack on BLU or meditating in his room.
Likes: Obedience, exercise and quiet meditation.
Dislikes: Pippin being annoying, seeing their "rations" running low and laziness.

Talents: Gardening, blowing stuff up and chemistry.
Bio: Was born in Glasgow, Scotland in 1980 and grew up in the poorer areas of Glasgow.

More complete profiles will be put on in the future. I did copy and paste from my Tumblr account, so if it looks a little odd, I'm unsure as to why and how to fix it. Thanks.
