@Mr Mallard: As much as Archie would like to enthasise quite the opposite for Sonsal in Mobius X Years Later.

Seriously, I could see the relationship maybe working, but I really think they had to skew Sonic in fanfic manner with the whole 'tied down with the monarchy and kids' story.

Eh. The X Years Later stories take place after Sonic is getting pretty up there in the years. He's gotta slow down sometime. Though yes, they're all Sally slanted.

Largely what put me off the couple (and to an extent the character herself) is the writers' overenthasis on how perfectly she 'completes' Sonic, especially since she had the potential to be a much more natural foil for him.

I actually like Sonic/Sally. I was just playing her more negative traits for laughs.
Video games, man.

Well, Sonic is capable of attraction, he did give a whistle at Lumina. Of course, this was the same game where Amy said "Forget about Sonic, just look at my clothes!" so take that one with a grain of salt. Then we have Tiara, who from what we can gather from interviews and concept art was intended to be more of a tomboyish foil.
"Less With The Sweet and Awesome, More With the Stabby-Hurty."
[up][up]But the problem is the comics play her positive ones from drama.tongue

My main beef with her character is that she is designed to be primarily Sonic's Straight Man, and since she is pretty much his polar opposite, it means consistantly playing what makes Sonic 'Sonic' in a negative light and making him more incompetent compared to her (eg. rather than being cocky but still resourceful and quick thinking, he's just pointlessly reckless). It would have worked if the foiling was more even sided, and Sonic at least got occasional moral superiority over Sally's more finicky, overcautious qualities, but as is, making them a couple means defying what makes Sonic himself.

I can stand Amy and Mina and whatever since they at least don't skew Sonic's personality coupled with him nearly as much, or at the very least Amy isn't portrayed as right for wanting to change Sonic.

If we're talking about attraction, we have to either focus on games Sonic or Archie Sonic, since I gather that the two are different characters in several ways.

I like the idea of them being occasional thieves and troublemakers at least. Have the odd Enemy Mine but not have their good moments take over like it did for Team Dark at least.
Isn X year later arc just an alternate timeline???
[up]Yeah, but it still seems meant to fit into how the characters work by being a possible timeline.
Knouge forever!!
Yes. The Babylon Rogues should be Sonic's Goldfish Poop Gang, and not goodie-goodies like how Team Dark and Silver are now. Also, Fang, bean, and Bark would be another Goldfish Poop Gang, and Fockewulf, Carrotia, and Bearenger would be yet another Goldfish Poop Gang.

They're antiheroes at worst, Miru. Your fanon =/= canon.

Plus, Jet is way cooler when he's a bro.

I've actually warmed up to the B Rouges for some reason. I don't know. They're kinda cool.

From what I've seen, the Babylon Rogues aren't all like "DIE SONIC, FEEL THE POWER OF OUR VICTORY", they just like committing petty crime and racing jet-boards.
Video games, man.
Knouge forever!!
I want them to stay petty criminals, but eviler than Rouge is. Some people claim Rouge is a Vamp, let's make Shade an outright Black Widow.

...Shade was never a true villain. Or even a vamp for that matter.
Lampshade Hanging: It's a lifestyle.
Jet is a petty crook at best, though very rivalistic. Under the right stipulations, he has potential especially as he is shown to be one of very few individuals actually capable of getting under Sonic's skin.

Seriously, the cutscene where he cheats him out of victory? It is so rare to see the games Sonic seeving with rage.

Just awesome like that
[up]You have a video of that cutscene? I kinda wanna see that [lol]
Insert witty and clever quip here.

My page, as the database hates my handle.

My music.

There's something rather humanizing about Sonic in this, he's not just angry, he's visibly dumbfounded. Jet not only cheated, he actually made him lose!

edited 10th Feb '13 8:26:06 PM by Psi001

Holy shit, Sonic is angry!

Now I can die in peace,..... wait, I have to see Shadow smiling first
[up]He laughs maniacally in one of the endings to his game. Will that suffice?
