No harm to give this a try, then.
: Sonic Concepts
: Fanfic, Sonic the Hedgehog
, action, suspense
Status of Completion
: Series, first story done, sequel in progress
: First story is a little over 80,000 words. Sequel currently has 56,000 words, no idea how long it will be once it's done though.
: Do you know the anime Sonic X
? If not, it basically had Sonic and co from the game series teleported to Earth and live there to interact with humans. Overall quality was...questionable, but the concept was something that got stuck in my head.
So basically, what I'm writing is, what if Sonic X
did not suck? What if it actually took a much more thorough and critical look at how the interaction between them would change their own worlds? How would they ultimately view each other? And if Sonic and co weren't
stuck with an annoying obnoxious kid as their main human friend?
In Sonic Concepts, FBI Agent Alan Doherty is teleported onto Mobius after a mishap with a Chaos Emerald. There he meets up with Sonic, Tails, and Knuckles, and learns about their struggle against Dr. Robotnik (no other Sonic characters than these), whose presence on the planet confuses Doherty as he's never heard of him or how he got here. He plans to investigate this, and discovers there is much more to this battle between the two sides than it looks.
In Sonic Concepts 2, the premise is even closer to Sonic X
since it takes place on Earth. Here, Sonic and Tails have to face off against Robotnik again, but this time in the middle of a war, a kind they are not used to as it involves way more people on both sides than they are used to, and Robotnik plans to take full advantage to this. How will the duo's views on humanity be like after all this? If they get out of it alive?
There is also a tie-in Character Blog
for the sequel called Tails' blog. Guess what's it about? Anyway, it attempts to show how the mobians' integrate themselves into Earth's society and any changes they make or experience, all from Tails' perspective.
- I just want to know one thing: Is it boring?
I'll be honest here: I haven't gotten much feedback on this at all, which leads me to think there is something not hooking readers in, that I'm doing something wrong. Should you read it, could you tell me what it is?
- Also, are there any Fridge Logic
or Plot Holes
? A few times I realized something that I wrote something that didn't make sense and too late to correct, which forced me to try and write in Hand Waves
or justifications. I want to make sure everything is all clear and that there aren't too many Headscratchers.
- Any comments on my writing itself are also welcome.
- How's the characterization? Of everyone, really.
- Finally, how well am I pulling off the whole idea itself?
The first story can be read here
. Once that's done, the sequel is here
and Tails' Blog here
