My first internet fandom back in ye olde times! The Archie Comics Sonic the Hedgehog series was so engrossing. What really stood out to me as a child/teen was the female cast- many more characters than just the three I drew too. They were all so strong and diverse in their personalities and backstories. Each dealt with a variety of heavy issues told through mature storytelling that made me feel respected as a reader at such a young age. Rarely do I see that kind of approach anymore. What a gem of a series ❤

Ken Penders and how his misinformed view of how monarchies work ruined not only what could have been a good au story but also Sonally

*profanity warning*

Now, just to preface as you may have gathered from my current icon and some of my art, I primarily ship Sonamy, however that does not mean that I hate Sally or Sonally, as a matter of fact I really like Sally as a character, she subverts some of the typical princess tropes (which I’ll get to later) and her relationship with Sonic, especially in SatAm is really fun to watch, they bounce off of each other so well.
