Needs a Better Description

You can visit her and her works on DeviantArt, YouTube, Fanfiction.Net, and Wattpad.

Works with own articles:

Her works provide examples of:

  • An Aesop: Guardians of Seasons: Doing your main job is important, but minding how you treat your friends and the consequences is also important.
  • Animal Motifs: Cats for Silver the Hedgehog. He purrs like a cat, owns a pet cat, and has a Mobian cat girlfriend. He gets Baleful Polymorphed into a cat in Feline Curse and even gains freaking cat powers in Hedge-Cat!
  • Animal-Themed Superbeing: Silver, AKA Hedge-Cat, in Hedge-Cat. He's an Expy of Catwoman.
  • Animorphism: The Maasai in Hedgehog Pride and Native Americans in Creature of the Forest share an ability to transform into an animal relating to them. They are either born with it or go through a ritual to earn it.
  • Art Evolution: Her art around 2012 started out with awkward-looking Sonic-style eyes and amateurish human anatomy. The shape and style improved over time, as this timeline shows.
  • Advertisement:
  • Asshole Victim: In Rose in Shining Armor, Scourge in his Dragon form is finally crushed to death by a large stone block dropped by Silver, after what he has all done, especially his Attempted Rape of Amy.
  • Author Appeal: Some of her fanfics nod to Monster High, in which GothNebula is also a fan of. There's Mobius Monster High.
  • Author Tract: It's not uncommon to find characters expressing GothNebula's beliefs and reflections of her humble Nice Girl demeanor rather obviously, particularly The Power of Love, how relationships should work, and Green Aesops.
  • Attempted Rape: In Rose in Shining Armor, Prince Scourge, in the first night of his first meeting with his Arranged fiancee, Princess Amy, begins to strip Amy off her clothes and do "what lovers do" against her consent, as a way to show he's pure evil. Just before he can strip her naked, Shadow and Sonic burst into her bedroom.
  • Babies Ever After/They Do:
    • Half-Alien Hedgehog ends with Shadow and Nebula Married in the Future and having Maria Raven Hedgehog.
    • Undead Heartbeat ends with the three now-restored hedgehogs and their girlfriends married and one of the couples, Shadow and Nebula, having Raven.
    • Beauty Fangs ends with Silver and Blaze getting Happily Married and having Ashley the Dhampire Cat.
    • Werehog's Roommate ends with Sonic and Amy having werewolf hoglet twins.
  • Bare Your Midriff: GothNebula likes drawing female characters with this type of clothing. Just see Nebula the Hedgehog's image above.
  • Big Bad: Scourge the Hedgehog, most of the time. Other furry fiends replace him in some stories. Dr. Eggman shows up from time to time.
  • Boy Meets Ghoul: Undead Heartbeat focuses on the romantic relationship between the three zombie hedgehogs and the three girls. It helps that it's based off Warm Bodies.
  • Cluster F-Bomb: Vampire's Rose is the story with the most profanity in it. Expect plenty of "fuck"s and "shit"s to be thrown around.
  • Cool and Unusual Punishment: In Guardians of Seasons, Amy punishes Sonic for hurting her feelings by forcing him to.... dance the Macarena!
  • Da Chief: Scourge in Cop and the Thief is the police chief and Mean Boss himself, much to the dismay of Shadow and his friends. He gets more villainous from there.
  • Death by Despair: Amy's Diary has Amy dying of heartbreak as the result of Sonic rejecting her.
  • Distracted by the Sexy: Revealed to be Nebula's weakness in Cop and the Thief. She faints at the sight of Shadow's abs.
    • Defied by Amy in Pink Riding Hood:
      Oh, shit! I can't stop looking at his [Sonic] abs! Why does this always happen to women? Every stupid damn time, women fall in trance by looking at sexy muscular men. I hate it when that happens! I really do!
  • Divine Parentage/Semi-Divine: In Demigods, Sonic and his friends are all demigods and children of the gods of Greek Mythology. Unsurprisingly, Demigods is based on Percy Jackson and the Olympians. For your information, Sonic is the son of Zeus, Shadow of Hades, Silver of Poseidon, Tails of Athena, Knuckles of Ares, Amy the daughter of Aphrodite, Nebula of Artemis, Blaze of Apollo, and Rouge of Hermes.
  • Driven to Suicide: SonAmy: Broken Heart, Change Back Time, Drowning, and I'm Coming For You all have Amy attempting/committing suicide as a result of her broken heart.
    • Bath Suicide: I'm Coming For You has Amy stabbing her heart while sitting in a full bathtub still fully-clothed. Sonic does the same to rejoin with Amy in Heaven.
    • Suicide by Sea: Change Back Time and Drowning have Amy drowning herself. Life between Water and Land starts off with Blaze deliberately jumping off the cliff into the ocean.
  • Evil Counterpart: The Global Warning Gang to the eponymous Guardians of Seasons. Amy has Rainstorm, Sonic has Thunderstorm, Shadow has Windstorm, and Silver has Snowstorm. Their purpose is to disrupt the balance, but fortunately remain as Sealed Evil in a Can. Blaze and Nebula also have Sunburn and Nightmare, which live inside their good counterparts.
  • Fantasy Kitchen Sink: In Guardians of Seasons, all gods in Greek Mythology exist, so do gods from other mythologies.

  • Flight: Nebula can fly unaided.
  • Fractured Fairy Tale: Pink Riding Hood is a modern day twist on Little Red Riding Hood that has the descendants of Red Riding Hood and the Wolf, Amy and Sonic the Werehog, in an unusually friendly relationship. Later on, it is Revealed that the original Red Riding Hood fabricated the original story; The Big Bad Wolf went unintentionally savage only because Riding Hood did not want to share pie with him and he hid the Grandmother in the closet, not swallow her.
  • "Freaky Friday" Flip: SonAmy and Shadula: Body Swapnote , Sonic and Nebula boy swap, Body Swapnote , Silvamy: Body Swap, Shadow and Nebula: Body Swap, SonAmy: Body Swap, Shadow & Sticks: Body Swap, Sonamy Boom: Body Swap

  • Go and Sin No More: In Demigods, after defeating him in the Perseus-esque battle, Sonic decides to spare Scourge, because of him suffering his status as the Last of His Kind and guilt of killing the five innocent demigods, and give him a chance to be forgiven, redeem himself, and move on with life.
  • Going Native: In Hedgehog Pride, Blaze the Foreigner is welcomed into the Maasai tribe after falling in love with Silver and discovering her animal form.
    • Same happens for Amy the Gypsy in Creature of the Forest
  • Goth: Nebula the Hedgehog, of course. She leans towards Perky Goth, however.
    • Actual Goth Nebula
    • Amy, AKA Thorn Rose, and Sonic, AKA Midnight, in Call Me Thorn Rose and Goth SonAmy. To an extend, Amy converts to a goth in the former because of Sonic cheating on her.

  • Harmful to Minors: In Alien of Darkness, Neptune, Shadow and Nebula's baby son, has a Prophetic Dream of his future teenage self facing Iblis in a Bad Future. What he does when he wakes up is predictable.
  • Healing Hands: Nebula can heal injuries of others.
  • Hotter and Sexier:
    • SonAmy: Vampire Life, one of her earlier one-shots, is a Lime, complete with an M rating.
    • Vampire's Rose also has a few Lime scenes, and an M rating.
    • While the highest level of intimacy is mainly brief French kissing in her T-rated fanfics, Beauty Fangs throws in a makeout session with Silver and Blaze both completely topless. Even GothNebula warns you ahead and marks Chapter 9 with this scene with a moderate Mature rating on DeviantArt.
  • Humanity Ensues: Human Nebula, albeit with Mobian ears and tail, has also become a Breakout Character.
    • This.
    • Human Triple SSS has Sonic, Shadow, Silver, and their girlfriends transformed into Little Bit Beastly humans.
  • Idiot Ball: The main conflict of Guardians of Seasons is kicked off when Sonic, in spite of having secret feelings for her, accidentally calls Amy, who has a crush on him also, still his friend. Amy is sent down to the dumps as a result and her insecurity weakens the prison and frees the Global Warming Gang.
  • Image Song: Nebula has "Shooting Stars" from Monster High Boo York Boo York.
  • Kindhearted Cat Lover: Blaze in Hedge-Cat owns many pet cats adopted from the streets, and eventually becomes Silver's girlfriend.
  • Justified Criminal: Nebula in Cop and the Thief only thieves just to survive her and her brother's, Silver, homeless life on the streets. This is what saves her from jail.
    Nebula: Yeah. And I'm not like any other criminal. I steal things that we need to survive.
  • Leitmotif: Nebula has "The Astrophysical Nebula" by John '00' Fleming.
  • Lions and Tigers and Humans... Oh, My!: Humans are shown directly living with Mobians.
  • Like Brother and Sister: Nebula and Silver have this type of relationship.
  • Mature Animal Story: Yes, GothNebula's fanfic feature your favorite video game animal heroes, however have a Young Adult flavor, occasional violence, and (usually mild) profanity that make them more directed to teenagers. Some of her fanfiction, such as Vampire's Rose and Shadow and Amy: Witch Hungers, are rated M and for older teenagers only.
  • Medusa: In Demigods, Scourge is a Gorgonhog and son of Medusa, complete with snake quills. He once stared at and turned five demigods into stone.

  • Mr. Fanservice: Shadow the Hedgehog. His six-pack abs cannot be resisted by women, especially Nebula.
    (From Cop and the Thief) Nebula: "You got the abs of a god. Wooooow (swoons and falls on couch)
    Teenage girls and even women can't resist those hard rock abs from sexy men.
    And its funny to see girls swoon.
  • Original Character: Nebula the Hedgehog, duh. There's also Hex the Cobra, Scoria the Fox, and Avani the Snow Leopard, but they get less limelight.
  • Original Flavor: Amnesia is rather very close to the Sonic canon for a GothNebula story. It manages to include many Sonic characters normally not present in her stories, such as Metal Sonic and the Chaotix, as well as lacks Nebula.
  • Our Gods Are Different: In Guardians of Seasons, there exist Guardians that keep the day-and-night cycle and seasons in check and balance, making sure life on Earth thrives and living among the much superior gods of Greek Mythology. There's Amy the Guardian of Spring, Sonic of Summer, Shadow of Autumn, Silver of Winter, Blaze of Sun, and Nebula of Moon. It takes what seems to be forever for Guardians to be promoted into Gods.note 
  • Our Werebeasts Are Different: In Pink Riding Hood, werehogs turn into wolves under the full moon and into normal Mobians under the new moon.
  • Patchwork Kids: Shadow and Nebula's children, Raven Maria Hedgehog and Neptune the Hedgehog. The former is basically female Shadow with Nebula's bangs and purple stripes. The latter is Shadow but with purple fur, black stripes, and Nebula's blue eyes.
  • Portal Book: The blank book in Into the Book that pulls the four comic artist hedgehogs into a magical book world
  • Precision F-Strike: The intense and suspenseful scenes are when the stronger profanity are said. Expect "Oh shit" to be said.

How well does it match the trope?
