Ok but consider the following: Friendship/mutual solidarity between Team Rose and Team Dark
Remember the Treasure Team Tango arc from SU? This is basically it but with less fighting between them (probably). Big is also there
Cream hears that Rouge loves gemstones so she gets one of those fantasy gems kit and makes all sorts of pretty necklaces and bracelets for her
Amy and Cream are the Flower Experts™ so when they find out about Shadow’s flower arrangement hobby they help him with flower meanings and what flowers go best together FOR THE ULTIMATE ARRANGEMENT
FLOWER CROWNS AND BRACELETS!!! EVERYONE GETS ONE!!!!
Shadow and Rouge keep their flower bracelets under their gloves. Omega doesn’t have gloves or pockets so he keeps losing his during battle, but Cream doesn’t mind maing him new ones every time
Shadow and Rouge being big bro + sis figures to Amy and especially Cream (at first it’s obviously awkward bc how??? do i deal with kids??? but it get easier once they grow closer)
Big goes fishing one day and he asks Shadow if he wants to tag along with him and Froggy. Shadow doesn’t really get it and he doesn’t do any actual fishing but watching the fish swim by is really calming and therapeutic for him. Froggy spends most of the day sitting on his head
For all of her love for Sonic, Amy still gets frustrated with him and can’t keep herself from rambling. Shadow and Rouge do nothing but enable her
“it’s just that he drives me up the wall sometimes-” “dump him” “WE’RE NOT EVEN DATING”
This is supposed to be a dramatic action scene, but it looks like no one gives a shit.
Knuckles remains unimpressed by Palpatine the Echidna’s fishing hook, while Shade and Amy gossip to each other about how Sonic is being such an asshole. Meanwhile, Tails is hoping no one notices he’s standing on the staircase incorrectly.
So, which Dark Sonic is this? Haha, most Dark Sonics are either an animal that attacks until gained trust/cured, or Sonic fighting his inner, out of control emotions that chaos gives power too. Sometimes, like the Canon version of Dark Sonic from Sonic X, it’s Sonic alright but he can’t control his anger or let it go. So,.. yeah XD I’ll pick one and see how it goes ;)
After a conflicting battle with Eggman, Sonic found himself unable to control his emotions upon seeing a powerful beam from the egg-carrier get deflected onto a neighboring town.
Lots were hurt, but luckily, none were fatal.
Sonic’s eyes shook at the scene below him, his body turned just slightly to see the beam land and destroy more than livelihoods.
His super form began to quiver in it’s aura, and suddenly, as Sonic’s fist tightened and his eyes narrowed into a hostility not usually seen in the hero; his skin slowly formed a darker hue, as his teeth clenched and his eyes shifted to a dark blue…
Eggman daintily posed a hand over his mouth, “Oh? Oppsie.” Treating it lightly, he positioned the gun over, where Super Sonic once knocked it away.
It was his fault. He deflected the beam.
Below him, stood Tails and Amy, saved by the fast thinking, but horrified at the consequences. Holding one another, they turned their eyes from the scene in the skies to the disaster to their sides.
As the ship turned, it faced Sonic directly, though Sonic’s body was trembling at this point, and he felt the dark aura starting to advance up his body.
“What’s the matter, hedgehog? Realizing you can’t save everyone?”
The tone shook Sonic out of control, as his eyes widened and he yielded to the temptation of aggression.
With a swiftness of his head, rising up to the behemoth of a machine, his eyes fully shifted to glowing white sockets.
With a roar of distain and bewilderment, blaming more than Eggman for the scene of fire below, he charged the machine, dashing through it like it was paper-mache.
Eggman, not expecting such violent reproof, immediately squirmed in his seat, as Orbot and Cubot tallied the damages as they happened.
“Damages 70%. 80%-!” Orbot flinched at a blow that shook the whole of the Egg-Carrier. “90!”
“We’ve lost the engine!” Cubot exclaimed, clutching Eggman’s leg for dear life.
Eggman pulled back the sides of his open frown, realizing this wasn’t how him and Sonic usually ‘played’.
“He’s not letting this one go.” Eggman slightly muttered to himself, starting to realize the gravity of the situation. Sonic was usually very playful, but this time…
“Cut the engine, and let it go!” Eggman took control, throwing a jacket over himself, he rose up and boarded to the top of a pillared structure in the middle of the floor. Rising up the platform, the machine had handles, where Eggman gripped and looked down to the shaking floor below him, turning to address his robots.
“Get on! If you wish to save your metallic hides!”
The two robots looked at one another, frightened, realizing this was an ‘abandon ship’, and quickly did as they were told.
The open and small airship that was released flew silently into the cover of smoke and clouds, as the Egg-Carrier was stripped with Spin-dashes and continual distortions until the entire thing collapsed on itself into a fire of explosions.
Although venting, tearing up the Egg-Carrier wasn’t enough to satisfy the intense rage Sonic was feeling. Not only was guilt there, something he hadn’t truly experienced before, but now a great regret as he turned to see Eggman through the clouds.
Still reeling in emotional pain, he ducked his shaking head, his body following the motion and stored up dark chaos energy into the front of his body.
“EEGGGGMMAAANN!!!” He gathered the force into his hands, reeled it back as it charged and directed freely like a curved comet into the sky towards him.
His whole body flung with the motion, as Eggman gritted his teeth and his lips drew back, fear at once took hold and the three were blasted by the hit, falling through the air in spinning circles before landing to be stuck in a tree.
“Maybe you shouldn’t blast people so hard.” Orbot complained, leaning backwards with his back arched on the branch.
“Or maybe you shouldn’t blast people at all!” Cubot groaned in his metallic way, his belly bent as he lay over a higher branch than the three.
Hanging by his comfortable jacket, getting pulled up and down like a small spring, Eggman folded his arms, pouting.
His mustache burnt slightly from the connecting blast, he twitched it slightly as little ashes fell and shortened that side of his stache.
He gasped, kicking his legs in anger as he threw a tantrum, “THAT DARN HEDDDGEEEEHOOOGGG!!!”
Coming down, Sonic still felt the grief of the moment over his body, the quaking never seeming to shake, as Tails and Amy ran up to him.
“Leave me…” he hunched his shoulders, as they sporadically bounced in his misery.
“Sonic…” They drew closer, wanting to help, Tails moving first with his hands out to try and comfort him…
“I said leave me alone!” Dark Sonic flung a hand back, and suddenly, the aura shot like mini-bullets into Tails and Amy, shooting them back as little sharp air lines showed where the punctures were made.
Though none were truly injured, the pain of the pressure hits caused them to flinch on the ground, before Amy looked up in shock and worry towards him.
What has happened to him? What was happening?
After several attempts to calm Sonic, nothing seemed to work.
Tails was losing his patience with his friends, pulling out all the stops, he even tried to electrically hold him in place, and sent a electrocution to try and snap Sonic out of his emotional distress.
This only caused him to grow anger, wanting to be alone as he shot from his hands a powerful pressure force that increased gravity. Tails was forced down, and as he struggled, soon lost consciousness.
Sonic lowered himself from the now sparking instruments, glared almost indifferently at his friend who now carried shallow breaths, and walked away.
Knuckles, Eggman, even Shadow was hired by G.U.N to put an end to this ‘uncurable threat’, and as Sonic fought more and more, his state of mind became more twisted.
Because he felt guilt that was haunting his conscience,… they considered him a monster?
That’s when Amy came along…
“Sonic…” she approached slowly, her hands clenched together in what seemed like a plight.
His eyes had shifted to a darker blue, finally being alone to dwell on some things, but hearing her voice sent an irritation. It broke his concentration and thought, making him close his eyes, clenching his fist…
“Sonic, you’re not yourself…” She lightly approached, as he slowly turned his body, and made her quickly react by moving away, not knowing what his next move… or reaction for that matter… would be…
“Have you come to reform me too..?” His eyes opened, an icy look, almost as if it had lost all feeling… “To cure me..” he started to advance towards her.
In her fright, she stepped back, but then shook her head and stood her ground, leaning forward, stomping a foot down to try and stop him from advancing.
“No! I’m here to help you!”
“Help?” his eyes narrowed, as he re-balanced himself and stopped his advancement. “Why would I need help? Because I’m feeling now? Because I actually have a heart?” He motioned to his chest, bowing slightly, and mocking her request.
“I don’t need any help.” he swiped a hand out, but no power came from it like the last time he had seen her.
“B-but… You’re fighting this alone… and you’re hurting people!”
Her outburst sent a jolt of anger through his being, as he growled out a bit of frustration and turned around, slamming a powerful pulse into the air.
“I want to be alone!!!” he shouted. “It’s all of you who can’t understand that!”
“You’re not understanding us!” Amy counted, squinting an eye as she flung her upper body in a twisted form up, before flinching and clutching her stomach, having been knocked down. “No one should suffer alone… let us help you… please… you’re not thinking clearly… you’re not yourself…”
Her voice faded slightly, but his anger forced his hands up, his head looming down at her with utter-
His eyes suddenly widened, and a faint chuckle came from his lips.
He shook his head, suddenly a darker expression upon his face.
“Of course… Tails tried technology. Shadow, brute force. Knuckles, heh… tried Knuckles… and now, what do you try?” he tsked from the side of his mouth, walking dangerously close to her as she scooted back slightly, up against the first foresty tree that covered the cliff ahead of them.
He bent down, his eyes cold and mocking… Even his breath was a cruel reminder of how much anguish and uncontrolled aggression he carried.
“You come and try and to use the ‘power of love’ to cure me…”
“What?” Amy looked insulted, slightly offended as her eyes furrowed in confusion.
He tilted his head, a wicked taunt upon his lips, as suddenly his eyes started to fade into the white around him, advancing towards her.
“Well, go on then, lure me into submission… tempt me to desire your will over mine… push out these feeling with your love, Amy… you and your love alone, because that’s the answer to everything, isn’t it? Because there’s nothing love can’t do…”
He was moving over her, as she kept trying to move back, more pressed to the tree as he came closer and closer, his voice a husky mockery of her pure intentions.
“Make me fall for you… Amy…”
“Stop it… Sonic,… Sonic, you’re not well!” She pushed him back, but he slowly hand his hand coming up, and pulled her down.
He suddenly gripped her throat, as she sucked in air impulsively, and he smashed his lips into hers.
The mocking taunt was unbearable now.
She kicked and almost screamed through it, but he kept ramming her against the ground and bashing her head against the tree.
“TAKE THIS AWAY FROM ME, AMY!”
She finally had a second to take in more air, feeling the throbbing of her head, she summoned her hammer and whammed it into his head, forcing him off of her.
He quickly recovered though, getting back on her and the two tussled before she finally got a word out, shoving her hand to his chest.
“This isn’t love!!!” she cried out, her voice a shriek in the darkness, before Dark Sonic finally leaned away, his eyes still glowing white, but his expression… somehow intrigued by her response.
She gasped, grimacing at the painful fight and letting out some of the ache through her cries.
“I’m not trying to cure you, or to take away any of the pain! I’m trying to share it with you!!!”
His body flinched, as he quickly backed up and away from her.
“What!?” he spat out, listening…
She coughed, getting up and gripping her throat, before turning to glare slightly at him from the corner of her eye.
“You aren’t well… and the only way you’ll ever get better is to let it out. Let it go, Sonic!” She slammed the hand that was desperately trying to comfort her aching throat down, refusing to try and soothe it.
Besides, it wasn’t the time for worrying about herself.
Sonic stepped back, silently, before shifting his head around, gripping his head.
“No… no..” he felt himself returning, the guilt, the discomforting realization of what Eggman had spoken… “I.. I can’t.” he leaned against the back of a tree. “I can’t.. I have to hold onto it…”
“If you keep it… then you’ll never forgive yourself.” Amy, seeing a sudden shift of consciousness over his deeds in him, got up and slowly started staggering over to him.
She gripped her arm and tried to hobble towards him, seeing him continually move away from her.
“No!” he shouted, looking disoriented. “Stay away from me!!!”
“Sonic… Please…” she reached a hand out to him.
In a flood of mercy, her touch on his cheek suddenly flooded him with emotion.
He lifted his head in defeat, the darkness fading, and waves of tears washed over his being as he fell to the ground.
He covered his face, holding himself up as he realized what he had done.
He had willingly given into his anger, submissively passed his free agency to the dark emotions of his heart, and because of that, he had lost who he truly was.
“I’m so sorry… I’m so sorry…” he kept repeating, each time envisioning the town, Eggman, Tails, Shadow, Knuckles, and then…
He turned in such miserable grief up to Amy.
“I’m so sorry..”
The air escaped Amy’s lungs, but she fell and clung to him, holding him, as he let the last of the horrible emotions flow through him and pour out.
(Super AU, but Sonic will be okay after a good cry :3 Yeah, again, super AU XD -Sonic doesn’t cry XP nor does he yield his will, pass the torch, so to speak, to emotion.- But eh. -shrug- that’s the only way I could think of that would be Sonic X like ‘darker flirting’ since Dark Sonic is evil, you know? XP But… is he?)
