Shadow the Hedgehog 2: The Revenge of Maria is a fanfic penned by {{@/SallysFunnyKiss}}, which can be read on her [[http://sallysfunnykiss.deviantart.com/gallery/35462279 deviantART]] and [[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/8196266/1/bShadow_b_the_bHedgehog_b_b2_b_The_bRevenge_b_of_Maria fanfiction.net]] accounts. The story centers around Shadow’s [[MilestoneCelebration one year anniversary]] as an agent of GUN. His fellow agents, as well as the [[TheCaptain Commander]], have yet to show any sort of trust in him and send him off to perform the most menial tasks instead of anything remotely serious. In an effort to prevent him from going AWOL, they decide to inexplicably bring Maria back to Shadow, cementing his position within their ranks so they can use him for something more useful later on. Despite the rather serious-sounding plot, the story is much more [[DenserAndWackier humor-centric]], and is more of a farce than anything.

This page is currently in need of quite a bit of work. However, the [[Characters/ShadowTheHedgehog2TheRevengeOfMaria character sheet]] is looking pretty spiffy.

----
!! This fanfic provides examples of:
* AuthorTract: The author makes her feelings toward "Revvin' Up" being the only Crush 40 song available on Spotify well known.
* CaptainErsatz: On Eggman's new smartphone, there is an interactive program named [[EveryoneOwnsAMac Iris]]
* DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment: Done in the narration for comedic effect.
* FiveManBand: With six members instead of the typical five, [[BadassCrew Team Hardline]] consists of:
** {{The Hero}}: Sonic, much to Shadow's dismay.
** {{The Lancer}}: Shadow, who really just wants to [[IWorkAlone work alone]], and Blaze, who is the same way.
** {{The Big Guy}}: Knuckles, in his [[DumbMuscle usual role]]
** {{The Smart Guy}}: Tails, who now [[GradeSchoolCEO leads GUN's tech department]].
** {{The Chick}}: Maria, who also doubles as the {{Team Mom}}.
* NoFourthWall
* ShoutOut: There's one to Manga/FullmetalAlchemist at the start of chapter 9, in which the narration says "Humankind cannot gain anything without first giving something in return. To obtain, something of equal value must be lost."
** In fact, the author loves doing these so much that there is at least one to pretty much anything under the sun in each chapter. They go from anime such as Manga/FullmetalAlchemist and {{Hamtaro}}, to live action TV shows such as Series/ArrestedDevelopment (the author's favorite show), and even {{Limp Bizkit}} and the {{Backstreet Boys}} of all things. She references this very wiki quite often as well.
* ViewersAreGeniuses: The author's word choice can be a bit odd at times- have a dictionary or thesaurus handy.
* WantonCrueltyToTheCommonComma: [[AvertedTrope Averted]] for the most part, as the author is a bit of a {{Grammar Nazi}}, but she has a tendency to delve in some parenthetical remarks and go on tangents.
