Tails: I just wouldn't try the night vision option right now. You might go blind.
Cosmo: Well, at least my last sight would be a beautiful one.

Cosmo Finds Tails is a romantic comedy fanfiction series by Dr-InSean, based on the Sonic the Hedgehog series.

Cosmo and her sisters were watching a meteor shower one night when strange plane crashed nearby. When they discover that the pilot is two-tailed fox boy, Cosmo feels an instinctive need to help and protect him.

The series is based on the idea that Cosmo and Tails were of such similar temperaments and philosophies that even if their gender roles were reversed, nothing about their relationship would change. The series also theorizes what Seedrian society and physiology may have been like if they didn't all blow up in their first episode. It can be found on Dr-InSean's deviantART and


Cosmo finds examples of:

  • Action Girl:
    • In her original story, Tails went to great lengths to defend Cosmo. This story reverses the roles.
    • Sticks doesn't get as much screen-time, but doesn't miss a beat.
  • Affably Evil: Eggman. To the point that he tells Sonic and friends whenever he goes on vacation so they can house-sit for him.
    • Bordering on Faux Affably Evil though, as he still has every intent to destroy Sonic and friends.
  • The Baby of the Bunch: Cosmo is the youngest of the so-called "Galaxina Sisters" and Galaxina certainly sees her as the baby. It's actually because of this treatment that Cosmo grew up as a Shrinking Violet.
  • Batman Gambit: When cornered in a narrow cave by Eggman, Cosmo taunts that his machine's whirling blades could never cut her, well aware that he couldn't turn down the invitation. He falls for it, which sees his once deadly blade whittled down by the cave's narrow walls.
  • Betty and Veronica: Cosmo fears that she, Sticks and Tails are in such a triangle. Sticks is the Veronica while Cosmo is the Betty.
  • Bizarre Alien Biology: Seedrian blood is actually chlorophyll. When they blush, their faces don't turn pink or red, but whatever color their leafy hair is. When Tails first saw Cosmo blush, he thought she was sick.
    • It's also mentioned that Seedrians breathe carbon dioxide, like trees do.
  • Character Development: Cosmo starts the series off shy, introverted and easily scared. Since rescuing Tails and meeting his friends, she's become braver and more outgoing.
  • Child Prodigy: Tails is described as such, verbatim. He's even asked to build a propulsion system. For an alien race far beyond his planet's technological capabilities.
  • Cloudcuckoolander: Sticks. As usual.
  • Cool Big Sis: She frequently keeps her and Cosmo's friends in check, Cosmo's envious of her out-going personality and she maintains a playful demeanor with anyone not named Starla. Even Tails starts to see her as this after a while.
  • Conspiracy Theorist: Who else but Sticks? Apparently, she's also prone to calling things that bore her conspiracies and running away from them.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass:
    • Knuckles is dumb, but he intercepts a Badnik with almost ninja-like skill. He also has an off-screen fight with Eggman that sends the mad man packing.
    • Sticks has shades of this too. Her insane rantings often make little sense and are incorrect, but that doesn't stop her from decapitating a Badnik with just a wooden boomerang.
  • Declaration of Protection: A modified one. Cosmo suggests that since love is a two-party affair, she and Tails should protect each other instead of just one of them doing all the work.
  • Disappeared Dad: Lucas is never seen or mentioned. Only knowledge of what the Metarex are will clue readers in to where Cosmo's father is.
  • Dumb Muscle: Knuckles, even by his own admission. Cosmo sees him as more of an Idiot Savant.
  • Friendship Trinket: Sticks gives people pink boomerangs to show she considers them a friend. Cosmo's the first person she gave one to without knocking her out with it.
  • Getting Crap Past the Radar: Even though there are no executives or editors on this series, the author tries to refrain from saying anything or depicting anything inappropriate for Sonic's demographic. That didn't stop Galaxina from saying her boyfriend Tarrantino likes tickling her feet.
  • Good Parent: Hertia. Not only is she supportive of Cosmo, she's also something of a Parental Substitute for Tails.
  • Green Rocks: As per the usual for this series. Tails uses a nondescript green gem to power his plane. He also speculates that Mobius could use such gems as a reliable, global power source provided they're naturally occurring and plentiful, not synthetic and few.
  • Green-Skinned Space Babe: Discussed. When Cosmo has fears that Tails may not like her anymore, Hertia reminds her that "You're an alien and you saved him. I can't think of anything cooler than that!" Besides that, Cosmo DOES NOT act like a member of this trope.
  • Insane Troll Logic: Most things Sticks says, but the one that takes the cake is a decoy sign that reads "Sticks' Hideout" outside her very own hideout. She was expecting people to think it was too obvious a sign and assume it was a trick and move on. They didn't.
  • Interspecies Romance: Cosmo and Tails.
  • Lemony Narrator: Full-stop. Used mostly for humor, but also manages to get character perspectives like Cosmo's anxieties and world-building when the narrator describes Seedrian history that... really doesn't matter.
  • Luminescent Blush: As the narrator of the series might say, "Cosmo and Tails blush no less than umpteen times per chapter."
  • Mad Scientist: Dr. Eggman... As if you didn't already know.
  • Mythology Gag:
  • Pink Boy, Blue Girl: Tails and Cosmo.
  • Rescue Romance
  • Shaped Like Itself: When Eggman chases Cosmo, we get this gem: "Cosmo ran into the next room, screaming like a plant-girl being chased by a mustachioed madman."
  • Shout-Out:
  • Shrinking Violet: No pun intended, but Cosmo. Meeting Tails encourages her to become bolder, but she still remains shy about things like meeting new people at first.
  • The Ditz: Starla. Much to Galaxina's chagrin.
  • Theme Naming: According to Word of God, all male Seedrians have the same name as movie directors. This comes from how Sonic X's English dub named one the male Seedrian's "Lucas." In this story, Galaxina's boyfriend is "Tarantino." Complete with a big chin and passing reference to feet.
  • What If?: The basis of the story asks the question "What if Tails crashed and Cosmo found him?" a twist on how the characters met in Sonic X. The author proposes that since Tails and Cosmo were so similar in temperament, little to nothing would change about them and their relationship even if they switched gender roles.
    • It also speculates on what Seedrian society may have been like back on its home planet, and if it managed to reach Sonic's planet in one piece.

How well does it match the trope?
