It’s time to start fresh with a new chapter! I hope you guys don’t mind me constantly changing the style (digital to traditional colored, and now to traditional drawing) this comic is all for good ol’ fun, though!
Now behold the rare sight of Sonic with a tummy :)
me: Nick never loved me. He loved a girl who doesn’t exist. A girl I was pretending to be. The Cool Girl. Men always use that as the defining compliment, right? She’s a cool girl. Being Cool Girl means I am a hot, brilliant, funny woman who adores football, poker and dirty jokes, who plays videogames and chugs beer, loves threesomes and anal sex and jams chilidogs into my mouth like I’m hosting the world’s biggest culinary gang-bang –while remaining a size 2, because cool girls are above all hot. Hot and understanding. Cool girls never get angry at their men, they only smile in a chagrined, loving manner. Go ahead! Shit on me, I don’t mind, I’m the cool girl. I waited patiently-years-for the pendulum to swing the other way, for men to start reading Jane Austen, organize scrapbook parties, and make out with each other while we leer. And then we’d say, yeah, he’s a cool guy. Instead, women across the nation colluded in our degradation! Pretty soon every girl was Cool Girl, and if you weren’t, then there was something wrong with you.But it’s tempting, to be Cool Girl. For someone like me, who likes to win, it’s tempting to be the girl every guy wants.When I met Nick I knew that’s what he wanted. For him, I was willing to try. I couldn’t have been Cool Girl with anyone else. I wouldn’t have wanted to. Nick teased things out in me I didn’t know existed: A lightness, a humor, an ease. And I made him smarter, sharper. I forced him to rise to my level. I was happier for those few years, pretending to be someone else, than I ever have been before or after. But then it had to stop, because it wasn’t me! I hated Nick for being surprised when I became me. He couldn’t believe I didn’t love wax-stripping my pussy raw and blowing him on request. That my fantasy baseball team was not a labor of love. It had to stop. Committing to Nick, feeling safe with Nick, being happy with Nick, made me realize that there was a Real Amy in there, and she was so much better, more interesting and complicated and challenging, than Cool Girl. But Nick wanted Cool Girl anyway. Can you imagine, finally showing your true self to your soulmate, and having him not like you?
Sometimes I like to think that Bulma gets really frustrated with Vegeta (for doing something really infuriating, like punching a hot dog vendor for putting onions on his damn chilidogs) and in her anger she shouts “JESUS CHRIST VEGETA!”
And he is like… “Who is this Jesus Christ you speak of, Bulma? ONE OF YOUR SUITORS FROM THE PAST? TELL ME WOMAN! I DEMAND TO KNOW!” As he motions frantically with his arms and slings chili everywhere.

Oh sweet chaos.. 0-0;
Whatever you say…
Prompt (Boom Universe)
“And what if I’m torn!?”
“Oh please! It’s piece of meat!”
Sonic gasps, “IT’S A CHILIDOG! You bag of bones!”
“Ah! You blue jerk!”
“How am I being the jerk? I~ didn’t insult the chilidog.” he gestured to the luxurious food in his hand.
She swiped it away.
He freezes, before diving for it, and then rolling to reveal it. “Nice save!” he complimented himself, before Amy growled and started storming off.
“You’re so immature! First I ask if you’re doing anything tonight, and the next thing I hear, you’re standing me up for a AMERICAN.” she gestures back to the food in his hands. “A freakin’ hotdog.”
“CHILIdog. Geez, you’re as bad as Eggman with identifying different species.” he scratched behind his head.
“Augh.” she rolled her eyes, and started to walk away again.
Sonic gripped her arm.
“I wasn’t done defending my friend yet!”
“Well, that friend certainly must mean more to you than your REAL friends!” she put her hands on her hips, leaning forward as she finally had it, stomping her foot one last time to the ground.
“OOHH! I’m so done with your attitude! Why are you so stubborn!? Do you want to go on a date or not!?”
“…D-Date? I thought you said we were hanging out?”
Amy widened her eyes, realizing her folly as she clammed her hands over her mouth.
“D-da-da-whaaat? PFft, boi please.” she leaned against the door frame, looking away. “That’s what the hip and happenings are saying now adays…” she bit her lip and sweated profusesly.
“…Ames?” Sonic raised an eyebrow, holding the chilidog in both hands now.
He waved it in front of her face, as she avoided looking at it too.
“…You can’t lie to the chili…”
“Gr…erk…” she twitched.
“Alright! FINE!” Amy flung it out of her face, screaming as she threw her hands down in front of her. “I WANTED TO SPEND TIME WITH YOU! Is that too much to ask!?”
Sonic watched the chilidog fly into the air, as the two both watched as it soared through the air, letting little chunks of the chili-meat fly off every now and then.
Sonic rushed to save it again. “Nooooo..!” he slid for it.
Dropping to his knees, he caught it, and held it up high. “YES! Two for two!”
“You mean one.”
Amy stood outside the door, and slammed it.
He flinched at the wood against wood, before getting up. “..Wait.. Amy?”
Amy stormed down the dark street, and headed quickly home. “I can’t believe he almost found out! And he STILL cared more about that stupid… dumb chilidog! I mean, I made it for him, but he could have at least been thankful enough and-”
“I… I made it for him.” she looked up, realizing maybe the chilidog was more than just some hunk of meat with sauce on it.
She turned around, before shaking her head and rolling her eyes. “Grahh.. I won’t be the first to look back this time!”
“Good! That means I won’t need to go back!”
Amy was scooped of her feet.
Bolting into her home through her window, the two crashed down as Sonic rolled along the floor, landing face-first on the couch, and getting up.
“Phew. Definitely not my roughest landing.” he leaned up, happy for the soft terrain.
Unnnntil Amy swung a hammer in his face.
“You think you can waltz in here and make up for treating me second to a literal food product!?” she gestured to represent the chilidog.
“Actually, it’s more like…” he hesitated, but then took her arm and gestured it around his stomach. “Here now.” he sweat dropped as he smiled sheepishly up to her.
She looked annoyed.
“You didn’t give me a lot of time to enjoy it!”
“I wanted to hang out with you! Not have you drooling over the chilidog and say goodbye right after I graciously hand-delivered it to you!”
“You wanted to see me?” he looked up, smiling like a kid.
“Well, I… I mean, like anyone else would.” she looked away, growing self-conscious again.
“I~ remember when you first said you wanted a trip in my hammock, thinking it cool. You did the same thing when I said you could, but you refused to get on it with me sitting beside you.”
She turned away, a faint blush on her cheeks. “I hate how all of a sudden, you think you can read me.” she closed her eyes and continued to keep her head away from his peering eyes.
He smirked, “Come on, Ames. What do you mean by all this?” he drooped his eyes slightly.
“…Nothing. Now… get out of my house!” she sounded lazy as she swished her hand to the door.
“…Alright.” Sonic hit his knees with the palm of his hands and got up, dusting himself off and then looking Amy over.
“…You sure are cute though… when you’re mad.” He then started to walk out.
Instantly, Amy reflexed and threw him back towards her face.
“What… what did you just say?” she blinked, shock taking over her.
“I said please don’t hurt me and I swear I’ll never say it again.” Sonic looked terrified, she was holding him by his bandanna.
“No.. what? Augh.” she shook her head, “I mean the other thing…” she looked away and then back, losing her tough-girl attitude, and Sonic could suddenly see she wasn’t as scary as she usually is.
“… em… stop staring and just repeat what you said already!” she yelled out, as he suddenly knew what he needed to do.
He leaned down and lightly held a kiss.
Minutes felt like seconds as he pulled away.
“…I said… I don’t remember.” he looked away, his eyes looking frozen as he realized what he had just done.
“…I’m… I’m thinking there was something in that chilidog.” Sonic tried to excuse his behavior.
“I’ll have to find the recipe again.” Amy pulled him back in for another one.
He flailed a moment, before completely surrendering to the sensation of it.
She pulled back, and he was literally starting to melt down to his knees, leaning completely and letting her lift him by the scruff of his bandanna now. “Woah. Comedy Chimp lied. That freakin’ rocked.” he had drooped eyes, before shaking his head and looking amazed.
“Wait.. did I just..” Amy looked up, and dropped him like a hot potato.
“Whoah!” he fell flat to the ground, before leaning up. “Yeah. I would be freakin’ out too if I kissed me.”
What she didn’t see was his lips trembling.
“I… I .. I have to go!” she ran out the door, slamming it as she heard him getting up.
He banged on the door. “Amy! Where will you go!? This is your house!”
She was spread up against the door, her mouth a deep, open frown with her teeth showing, spazzing.
She then realized the logic of his truth and swung open the door. “Oh yeah.” she kicked him out. “You should go!” she then tried to slam the door again.
“Wait-OOOOOWWW!” his foot got jammed by her.
“Oh my gosh! I am SO SORRY!” she opened the door, covering her mouth and looking around, “Uh.. Um… j-just come in.”
He hobbled in one leg, as she set him back on the couch, letting him lift his leg up.
“Ugh! I just- I’m so confused right now!”
“W-why..” he was rubbing his poor foot.
“Because!” she flung ice at his face.
“OOOWWW!” he held it to his eye, letting it slowly drag his face down as he pulled it away. “Geez, are you here to kill me or-?”
“I just hate how you’re making me feel right now!” she threw an apple at him, making him lean back to dodge it and catch it, ‘phewing’ as he did, before looking back at Amy.
She was gone.
“H-huh?” He looked around, “Amy?”
He slowly got up, watching his foot and hopping a few times, over to the kitchen.
Amy was huddled down, gripping her legs, head down.
He examined her for a moment before sitting down next to her, up against the island counter. “…Do you really hate me that much?” he side glanced over to her, lifting his good leg up and leaning forward, against it.
“Cause I sure as heck didn’t mean anything I said.”
She peeked up a little, and when he saw the small opening, smiled and continued, pretending he didn’t see her shift.
“I mean,” he gestured up. “I may get mad at you sometimes, but I would never say I hate you.”
Amy felt bad just then, and lowered her head again.
“Ah!” he freaked out, realizing that was probably bad. “L-look, that… thing …we just did? D-don’t worry about it.” he slowly moved to his knees, trying to comfort her. “I’ll just go now and we’ll pretend the whole thing didn’t happen, alright?”
Right before he was about to leave, she pulled his bandanna towards her again.
“If you leave now… I really will hate you forever.”
He gulped, blinking in his surprise.
“Oooo… k? Now I’m really confused.” He furrowed his eyebrows, leaning closer. “Don’t you want me to leave..?”
She pulled him back into a hug, and kissed him quicker this time, before pushing him away and covering her face, sending him half way across the room.
“WHHHAA!!” he hit his head. “Ughh… if every time that happens, I might need to start wearing a helmet…” his eyes rolled around, before he shook his head to keep them straight again.
She looked away, “Like you even want it to happen again…”
He leaned up, “Woah… what has made you so hateful today!? And… surprisingly… open too..” he touched his lips, still unsure of why he wasn’t, himself, overreacting.
For some reason… he wanted to make her more mad.
He got up, still twitching from the pain in his foot.
“If love’s a battlefield, you certainly give it a new meaning.”
She threw a hammer at him, and he just narrowly dodged it, spinning around before landing on his bad foot.
“AHHHH-ph.” he shut his mouth, closing his jaw and pushing his head down to do so. “Em.” he squinted his eyes a moment, enduring the pain as he looked back at Amy.
She glared at him, then looked away.
“…You.. You can be so violent!”
She threw another hammer, and he happily leaned back, almost all the way down to his lower leg, matrix style, and leaned up again. “Heh, but you’re no match for the fastest thing a-OFFPH!” he struck a pose and waved his finger around, signature grin, before she threw another hammer directly at his face.
“Owkawy. I swee whawt’s gwoinwg won.” he muffled through the hammer, as he tilted his head with it, as if it was permanently stuck there.
He gripped it and tried to rip it off, succeeding and then holding it just in case she threw more. “Ha… You’re fighting how you feel, right?”
She threw another hammer, but he deflected it. Smiling.
“You’re worried I don’t mean it. That I’m gonna somehow play ya and this whole thing will end in our friendship being ruined forever, is that it?”
She narrowed her eyes more, but this time, her frown was a sorrowful one.
“Well. I think you doubt me too much!”
“What are you saying!?” she finally blurted out, getting up and staring at him.
“I don’t want to be deceived!”
“Deceived?! Oh, is that who you think I am?!” Sonic looked angry, walking towards her and pointing a hammer accusingly at her.
“Well, maybe I don’t want to face defeat! Be rejected in front of the only girl I’ve actually cared about on this level.”
“Level!? So what, I’m a game to you!?” Amy stepped forward.
“With all the hammer’s you’ve thrown at my face, and my injured big toe, I would say YES. You’re probably the hardest boss I’ve ever had to face. Because I can’t face you. You’re unfaceable!”
“CAUSE YOUR FACE IS TOO PRETTY TO DISPUTE.”
“IS THAT SO!?”
“YEAH! AND YOUR HAIR SMELLS LIKE PARADISE FRUIT AND YOUR COOKING IS TO DIE FOR! That’s probably why I’m still here!”
“Waiting to be fed!? Ugh, you’re so-!” she leaned forward.
“Yeah?” he stepped forward.
“I.. I DON’T WANT TOO!”
“REALLY!? Cause I really want to eat your face right now!”
“Then do it!”
They suddenly were so close that the two just launched at each other, completely dropping the act and the hammer, and were completely absorbed in one another.
A little while later, they pulled away, panting.
“…I… I don’t know what just happened.” Amy admitted.
“I do… thankfully.”
Sonic and Amy didn’t take their eyes off each other, or remove their hands from around the other.
“..What does this mean?” Amy gasped out.
“…It means…” Sonic stepped more foreward, putting his head to her forehead.
“I’m gonna need you to deliver some more chilidogs.”
“A.S.A.P…” he leaned in for another one.
“…You can be that hungry?” Amy leaned back, wanting to pull a fast one before he did, smiling.
He smirked, “Starving.” he shook his head with the motion, and the two were quite different after that.
So after great reception from the first chapter of “Advice” I felt encouraged to write a follow-up about their lunch “date” ;) It
honestly threw me off a bit that people liked it so I
wasn’t prepared to write more, but over time I
finally came up with this. Don’t
plan on writing another part, but then again I hadn’t planned on
writing this one until I saw how well the first did, so maybe
I will if I get the ideas for one but no promises. ^^ Anyways, please enjoy! :D Chapter 1 is here –> [X]
Sonic knocked lightly on the door to Amy’s hut, unable to deny he was feeling a bit nervous about the idea of the two of them getting lunch together, alone. He knew it was silly to feel this way considering it wasn’t like they had agreed this was an actual date, but at the same time he couldn’t help it. He knew they had feelings for each other now after all, so how could he not be nervous about being with her? As these feelings continued to swirl in his head, his attention was drawn to Amy stepping outside, an apologetic smile on her face.
“Sorry to keep you waiting.” Amy said, her hands brushing at her quills quickly as they left her house.
“Don’t worry about it,” Sonic replied, waving off her apology with his hand quickly. “I’d only been waiting a minute anyway.”
A silence quickly fell between them, both unable to come up with much conversation as they walked through town and got in line at Mehburger. They ordered their usual and then sat at one of the two-person tables up front, awkwardly making small talk as normally as they could while they waited.
“So, what do you wanna do together after this?” Sonic asked casually. Amy flashed him a confused look at first but then a small smile broke out on her face. “You want to hang out together after this…?” Amy started shyly, triggering Sonic to stare wide-eyed for a moment from registering his previous words before displaying an embarrassed grin.
“N-no! W-well,” Sonic stuttered, “I mean m-maybe…only i-if you-” “I’d love that.” Amy interrupted, surprising Sonic and making his embarrassed grin grow a bit wider.
“Heh, really?” Amy nodded in reply and they both smiled at each other, letting small laughs escape, their hands slightly touching as they both forgot about being in public. Just then there was a familiar voice from behind, bringing them out of it.
“Hey love-hogs, care to tone down the pda? I’m trying to enjoy my lunch over here!” Sonic and Amy both did a double-take, looking at their hands briefly before withdrawing them awkwardly with slight blushes on their faces. Sonic whipped his head around, immediately on his feet defensively as he met eyes with none other than Dr. Eggman.
“Egghead-!” “Woah, hey, no need for violence,” Eggman replied quickly. “Just wanted to enjoy my meal without the noise of you two flirting over there.”
“Wha-fl-flirting?? We-! W-we were just-!” Sonic spluttered angrily, stepping forward slightly before Amy grabbed his arm, making him turn his head to look at her questioningly.
“Sonic, let’s not make a scene,” Amy reasoned calmly, subtly motioning so that he saw that everyone else there was now focused on them. “Yeah, listen to your girlfriend Sonic. You don’t want to get thrown out now do you?” “She’s not my-! Urgh whatever…”
With a frustrated growl he gave one last glare towards Eggman before sitting down and taking a large bite out of his chilidog, annoyed until after a few minutes things settled down and they could finally enjoy each other’s company again. They finished their meal rather quickly, intent on getting away from prying eyes and Eggman’s teasing comments, which continued as they left though thankfully they were out of earshot before long. Feeling a bit awkward they tried their best to stay casual as they walked out of town deciding what to do next on the way.
