SNS Week: Day 3 - Collab with @saucegayuchihayyyy
I find myself in a cold sweat, as your face disappears and I spring up in bed. You may be gone but your image remains, engulfing my heart and polluting my brain. Don’t think I’ve forgotten The things you would say, the way that you smiled, that you walked away. I just can’t escape the sting of the pain that you left like a last kiss, that day in the rain. How could you leave… and where did you go? You’re in front of my eyes, whether open or closed.
COLLAB

Summary: It’s the perfect night to dance. Amy is super excited for Station Square’s annual Spring Fling, and she’s hoping to get the slow dance of her dreams with the one and only Sonic The Hedgehog. But, her efforts to make her night amazing are greatly threatened by an unexpected turn of events that may lead to a not-so happy ending. Will Amy finally spend the perfect night with her hero? Or, will it be a perfect disaster?

  

 “So, Amy, what are we shopping for today?” Cream the Rabbit asked, happily skipping along a hot sidewalk in the middle of Station Square. Amy Rose smiled in response, taking Cream’s hand and swinging it back and forth as they made their way towards the Station Square Mall. 

“Well, I was hoping we could get some lunch, first! Then, we could get some new matching earrings for springtime!” Amy said with a smile. Cream’s eyes lit up at Amy’s splendid idea as they quickly made their way to a cute little cafe.

  They both walked in the door and each of them ordered their lunch. After Amy paid the cashier, the two girls found a table and sat down to chat. They talked the usual gossip, pausing every so often to take a bite of their sandwiches or a sip from their milkshakes. Cream flicked her pink polka dotted straw and let it spin around in her cup. “So, how are you and Mr. Sonic? Tell me everything!” Cream said, resting her cheek on her hand.

  Amy blushed and took a sip from her milkshake. She looked away in embarrassment. “Well, nothing much has changed. He’s still as stubborn as ever…I was thinking about asking him out on a date, but I don’t know where we could go.” she said, tapping her chin in thought.

 “Ooh! What about the Spring Fling? Momma told me that it’s this Saturday! Maybe you and Mr. Sonic could come too!” Cream said, gently clapping her hands together in excitement. Amy almost choked on her milkshake, and she slammed her hand on the table.

“IT’S THIS SATURDAY?!” Amy said, unaware of the cashier’s startled look. Cream quickly caught her sandwich before it toppled over the table, and shyly nodded her head.


“Mhm!” 

 Amy suddenly stood up and grabbed all of her things. Cream was dragged out of the cafe and ended up dropping her milkshake on the sidewalk. She felt a sting in her heart as its contents dripped all over the concrete floor.

 “Come on, Cream! There’s no time to waste! We have to buy our dresses!” Amy said, running as fast as she could towards the mall. Cream followed closely behind, not surprised with Amy’s excited behavior. She felt a bit of sweat drip down the side of her face.

 “Er, shouldn’t you ask Sonic to the dance first?” Cream asked. Amy screeched to a halt, almost causing Cream to crash into her. Amy crossed her arms, tapping into her Sonic radar, which somehow grew stronger the longer she spent with her hero. Cream tilted the side of her head as she watched Amy fall deep into thought. The young rabbit wondered how somebody could be so good at finding someone, it was so unusual. Then again, Cream learned not to question the power of love, well, at least the power of Amy’s love.

 Amy interrupted Cream’s thoughts by taking her hand.

 “Let’s go!” 

~~~

  Back at Tails’ workshop, Tails was slumped over a hunk of metal and groaning. Sonic was in front of him, laughing so hard that tears were coming out of his eyes. Tails abruptly sat up and rubbed his behind.

 “Oww! Watch where you point that thing!” he growled. Sonic wheezed and collapsed to the floor. “AhAHAHA! I-I’m SO SO-SORRY!!! PFFT HAHAHAHA!!” he barely had a breath to spare when Amy suddenly burst through the door. Sonic and Tails looked towards the entrance. Amy was standing proudly with her hands on her hips and a determined look in her eye, while Cream awkwardly poked her head inside and asked what was so funny. The boys glanced at each other and Sonic snorted.

“I may or may not have accidentally shot Tails in the butt with a laser gun.” 

“Yeah. And it HURT!” Tails cried, frowning and yanking the weapon out of Sonic’s hand. The girls giggled, which caught Sonic’s attention.

   Sonic made eye contact with Amy and felt his stomach lurch. As quick as he could, he stumbled past Tails and tried to make a break for it, but ended up tripping over the pile of scrap metal and smacking his face into the floor. He didn’t let that phase him though, and he tried to jump back on his feet. But, he was too late, and Amy easily pinned him down. 

  “Ha! You’re not escaping me this time!” Amy said victoriously. Sonic groaned and rolled his eyes in annoyance.

 “You just got lucky that I tripped.” he remarked, but Amy seemed to ignore his comment. Cream gave Tails a weary look, as if she were apologizing for Amy’s behavior. Tails returned her gaze and shrugged his shoulders.

 “So, uh..what are you two doing all the way out here? I thought it was girls night..” Tails said, scratching the back of his head. Amy sat up and grinned. She hopped off of Sonic’s back and helped him stand up again. Amy batted her eyes as Sonic brushed himself off, which earned her an uncomfortable look in response.

 “Well, I came here to ask Sonic a question!” Amy said, clasping her hands together and rocking back and forth. Sonic raised an eyebrow and flicked some dust bunnies off of his gloves.

 “Oh really? Lay it on me.” he said. Amy felt her heart suddenly speed up. She wanted nothing more than to take his hand and dance the night away. She giggled, imagining how handsome he’d look in a fancy tuxedo. But, before any of that could happen, she needs to pop the question.

 “I was wondering if you would like to go to the Spring Fling with me this Saturday, as my date.” she said, dramatically turning away and covering her rosy cheeks. Sonic felt his face heat up and quickly averted his eyes, scratching the back of his head. 

“Oh, erm…” Sonic said uncomfortably. He shuffled his feet a bit and stared at the floor. Tails watched Sonic’s body language closely, and suddenly got a wicked, terrible, idea. He smirked, chuckling under his breath.

 “…It…sounds nice,” Sonic said slowly. Amy’s eyes lit up and she went in for a hug. Sonic stepped back, dodging her. He thought for a moment, dragging out his response. 

“I dunno, Amy…it’ll be kinda hard finding a suit. I mean, tomorrow’s Friday, surely there’d be nothing left by then?” Sonic shrugged his shoulders, hoping Amy would change her mind. Amy opened her mouth to say something, but closed it and frowned. Sonic peered down at her expression and faintly smiled. He was in the clear!

 “Well, Sonic, that’s not exactly true, I’m sure we could find something to wear on Saturday!” Tails said abruptly. Sonic’s eyes widened. He gave the fox a look of terror. Tails merely shrugged his shoulders and shot a look of satisfaction towards him. Sonic felt as if he was literally stabbed in the back. Tails, his best buddy for life, was a traitor.

 “Oh! You wanna come too, Tails?” said Amy. Tails nodded his head. Sonic opened his mouth to object, but no words came out. Amy smiled and bounced on her toes.

 “Ooh! It can be a double date! Tails can go with Cream, and I’ll go with Sonic!” she cooed, taking Sonic’s hand and staring lovingly into his eyes.

“Wouldn’t that be fun??” she said.

“U-uh…but-”

“Oh, totally fun! We’ll see you there!” Tails cheered. Amy squealed and bounced around, still holding onto Sonic’s hands. Sonic gave Amy an awkward smile, then shot a dirty look in Tails’ direction. If he only knew the kind of sick revenge he was in for, he wouldn’t have dared to accept Amy’s request.

  “So, is that a yes?” Amy asked.

 Sonic stared at her and let out a defeated sigh.

He had no choice, didn’t he? 

 Sonic rubbed his finger just below his nose, feeling very awkward. He tried to smile to hide his betrayal by his so called best friend, and smiled at her. He glanced at Tails and Cream, and felt a bit of relief. At least he and Amy weren’t gonna be super lovey dovey around the little ones…he hoped. The last thing he wants is to give Tails the satisfaction of watching him become a nervous wreck when Amy got a little too friendly.

 “Tell you what, I’ll go with you. But…please, no cuddling or anything like that, deal?” he said. Amy hesitated for a moment, then nodded. She let go of his hands and jumped around some more.

 “Eep! This is gonna be so fun! And Tails and Cream would look so cute in matching outfits!” Amy said, looking towards Tails with a warm smile. Tails grinned, giving Amy a thumbs up. Cream nervously stared at her feet. She glanced at Tails for a brief second.

 “Um, I guess I’ll see you on Saturday, hehe.” she said bashfully, turning away.

  Tails’ face flushed. He laughed in an attempt to act like he wasn’t a little bit shy as well. He reached out to shake Cream’s hand, which was incredibly difficult for him to do all of a sudden. “Um…I guess so.” he said. Tails bit the inside of his cheek, not sure what to say next. 

 “Oh, that reminds me! You and I are gonna have to match too…so, don’t buy a suit until I buy my dress, okay?” Amy said, poking Sonic’s chest. Sonic nodded and waved goodbye as the girls left to go dress shopping. Once the girls disappeared, Tails laughed and poked Sonic’s side. 

“Next time, if you want me to save your butt, don’t shoot mine.” he sniggered, walking back inside. Sonic puffed his cheeks and growled. 

“It’s not like I wanted to shoot you in the butt!”

~~~

“Ugh, this is such a pain. Why did I ever agree to this?” Sonic said irritably, trying to adjust the white bowtie he had around his neck. Tails chuckled, standing still as Vanilla put his royal blue bowtie on. Vanilla walked towards Sonic and fixed the bow, grinning broadly at the sight of Sonic’s face.  

 “Erm…what are you so happy about?” he asked.

 Vanilla laughed and fixed his tux, pulling and yanking his body so he could stand straight, which quickly annoyed Sonic. Once she was finished, Vanilla winked and pulled out a boutonniere with a pink rose on it. She pinned it over his heart. 

 “Let’s just say, you’ll be pleasantly surprised.” said Vanilla, disappearing into Cream’s bedroom. Sonic gulped nervously. He looked over to Tails, who looked very pleased with himself. 

“Would it be bad if I just ran away right now? Or would that seem inconsiderate?” he asked.

  Tails gave Sonic a confused look, unsure if he were serious or not. Tails opened his mouth to reply, but no words came out. The two broke their stares when footsteps began approaching them. The boys both instinctively puffed their chests out a bit, awaiting their dates. 

  The first to appear was Cream. She was shy, slowly walking into view in her white gown. She also had on little blue flats and a flower crown made of blue irises. Sonic caught a glimpse of Tails smiling out of the corner of his eye. Tails quickly ran his fingers through his bangs and went to take Cream’s hand, which he did rather awkwardly.

 “Hello, hehe.” he said. Sonic smirked and nudged Tails with his elbow.

“Admit it, you think she’s pretty.” he whispered. Tails crossed his arms and ignored Sonic, trying to hide his red face. Cream smiled and stood next to Tails, bouncing on her toes.

 “Just wait until you see Amy, Sonic! She looks amazing!” she said excitedly. Sonic playfully rolled his eyes and nervously tugged at his collar.

Back in Cream’s bedroom, Amy was standing in front of a mirror. She ran her fingers through her quills to get rid of any tangles, and stared intently into her reflection, taking a deep breath.

“Okay, Amy, tonight is the night. This date is going to be perfect. Just stay calm, and he’ll sweep you off your feet in no time!” she said to herself, smiling nervously. She was so concentrated on her reflection that she didn’t notice Vanilla slip into the room. The rabbit walked over and tapped Amy on her shoulder.

“Psst, are you ready? Sonic’s waiting for you.” said Vanilla. Amy felt her heart skip a beat at the sound of his name. She glanced down at her dress, feeling a bit disappointed. It just so happened that her prefect dress was nowhere in sight while at the mall, so she had to settle with something simple. But, she didn’t want to let it get to her, so she spun around, giving Vanilla a determined look.

“Yes, I am! I have it all planned out, Vanilla. When we get to the party, it’ll be dinnertime, so I’m gonna try to get a table for Sonic and I to be alone at. Oh, and while we’re eating, we’ll confess our undying love for each other and then we’ll walk out onto the dancefloor and-” Vanilla placed a finger over Amy’s lips to silence her.

“Save the story until after the party, I wanna hear all the gossip!” Vanilla said with a wink. Amy nodded her head and gave Vanilla a hug. The rabbit sighed proudly, blinking back tears.

“You look so beautiful! It seems like yesterday when you showed up on my doorstep with Cream. Hehe, you were still wearing your cute little orange tutu back then,” she teased, poking Amy’s nose.

“And now you’re all grown up! Oh, I’m so proud of you, Amy. Sonic isn’t going to be able to take his eyes off of you! Just watch where he puts those hands!” 

Amy beamed. She was already itching to get the heck out of there and dance the night away.

“Did it really hurt that bad?” Cream asked, frowning.

Tails pretended to wipe a tear from his eye.

“Yes, My butt was so badly burned I could barely move…”

Sonic groaned.

“Oh COME ON, you’re exaggerating!”

Just before the two boys could bicker, everyone’s attention was grabbed by gentle taps from a pair of heels coming from the hallway.

Sonic held his breath and squinted his eyes shut, waiting for the bone crushing hug that was about to come. But, the tapping of heels stopped, and Sonic was still breathing normally with no tackling or broken bones. He heard Tails quietly gasp and Cream clap giddily.

 “Hello?” said a voice. Sonic opened his eyes and saw Amy standing before him. Needless to say, he was pleasantly surprised.

 There she was, standing in a simple white dress with a pink floral pattern. It was strapless, and the bodice fit snuggly around her tiny body. The skirt flared out and ended just above her knees. It was like silk, with more flower petals distributed sparsely around the entire skirt. The fabric was so gentle and light that Sonic imagined it felt like a cloud when touched.

 Sonic’s eyes traveled up to her face. She was smiling confidently, batting her eyes. Her quills were curled at the tips, and she was wearing a flower crown with pink roses, most likely to match with Cream. Sonic studied her facial features a little closer, realizing that she was wearing a bit of lipstick and mascara. He was so distracted by Amy’s appearance that his mouth moved on its own before he could think of what to say next. 

“..Hi…” he mumbled, gawking at her. Amy raised a brow and leaned closer, smirking.

“What was that?” she asked, suppressing a laugh. Sonic blinked twice and stared at her for a little longer before snapping himself out of whatever void his brain fell into. He scratched the back of his head and nervously laughed.“You, er..You look going! Let’s get pretty, haha!” he replied.

“Huh?”

Sonic took a moment to think about what he just said, and he smacked his forehead into his palm.

“No, wait! I mean-um…hehe..ahem,” he looked away, feeling butterflies swarm his stomach. His cheeks were starting to heat up.

“I- er…You look…really nice..” he finally said, scratching the back of his head in embarrassment. That wasn’t exactly what he wanted to say, but it was too late now. Amy’s smile faltered a bit. That could mean anything! She decided to shake it off and hope that he was just nervous.

“Hehe, thank you, Sonic! You look very handsome in your new suit. It’s so…suave.” Amy cooed, stepping closer to him.

 Sonic gulped, feeling beads of sweat form on his face as she took his hand. He felt his heart rate suddenly skyrocket as soon as their hands touched. Sonic forced his lips shut and looked around. Why did she always have to flirt with him? It was like she knew exactly what it took to get under his skin. He was about ready to bolt out of there when Tails chimed in to save the day.

“So, shouldn’t we get going?” he said, pointing towards the front door. Sonic let out a sigh of relief and hesitantly followed the rest of the group. Amy squeezed his hand a bit, as if she needed a sign that she wasn’t dreaming. 

 It took about ten minutes before they finally reached their destination. The four stood in front of the giant banquet hall and stared in awe at the giant doors before them. Sonic watched as Tails and Cream skipped inside without a care in the world. He sighed, already wondering what kind of magical power Tails wielded to be so chill tonight.

Sonic and Amy stepped inside of the banquet hall and were taken aback by the amount of beautiful decorations everywhere. The walls were covered with hundreds of flowers, the dancefloor was lit up with pink lights, music was playing loudly, and there were a ton of people mingling and having fun. 

  Sonic let out a whistle, impressed by the decorations. Amy seized his hand once again and dragged him towards the middle of the floor, searching for a table for them to sit at. It was much harder than she initially thought. She frowned, unable to find a table that wasn’t already occupied. Sonic tapped her shoulder and pointed toward Tails and Cream, who were gesturing them to come over and sit.

  Amy stared at them for a moment, and reluctantly followed Sonic and sat down at the table. She took a deep breath and took the moment to sneak little glances at her date sitting beside her. She grinned, feeling her heart speed up again. 

 “So, how have you been? It’s been quite a while since we got to spend time together. I was missing flirting with you, hehe.” she said, hoping to keep him entertained with a bit of small talk. Sonic didn’t seem to hear her as he ripped tiny pieces of paper from his napkin. He rolled them up in tiny little balls to flick at Tails when the fox wasn’t looking. Amy pressed her lips together, feeling a bit awkward.

 “Er, Sonic? Helllooo….Sonic!” 

  Sonic looked over at Amy, twitching his ear with curiosity. “Yes?” he said. Amy opened her mouth to repeat herself, but paused. She glanced over at Cream and nodded towards Tails. The girls seemed to communicate without words, giving each other subtle signals and clues as to what to do next. Cream’s eyes widened and she immediately stood up. 

 “Hey, Tails? Could you come with me to get punch?” she asked, winking at Amy.  Amy smiled warmly as the two kids happily walked off, leaving her and Sonic alone. Sonic smirked as his little buddy disappeared into the crowd with his date.

 “Heh, it’s kinda weird seeing Tails with a date..and kinda funny.” he said, chuckling. Amy smiled and nodded. 

 “Yeah, I guess so,” she looked away, wondering what to say next.

“Maybe they’ll grow up and get married someday.” she said, laughing. Sonic gave her a weirded out look and rolled his eyes.

 “Now THAT would be somethin’ else..” he said.

 Amy looked around, her eyes scanning around the room in search of something they could do. Before she could say anything, Sonic suddenly popped up and grinned like a madman.

“HOLY CRAP, I LOVE THIS SONG!” he yelled, dashing onto the dancefloor and leaving Amy on her own. Amy blinked, in shock of what just happened. She gasped and hurried after him after realizing what he’d done.

“Sonic, wait up!!” she exclaimed.  

  Amy clawed her way through the huge crowd of people dancing, in search of her date. She began to sweat, this date was going downhill extremely fast, and she was totally freaking out. Fortunately for her, she happened to bump into Tails and Cream. “Oof! Oh! Have you guys seen Sonic? He just ran off to dance, but I can’t find him!” she said.

 The two kids gave each other a confused look.

“WHAT?!” they both yelled. 

 “I said, where is SONIC?” Amy replied.

 “WHAAT??”

 “WHERE IS SONIC?” 

“…”

“…”

“….WHAT DID YOU SAY?”

“OH FOR THE LOVE OF-” Amy was interrupted by a group of people cheering. She rushed over, trying to see through the crowd. When she finally found a spot to squeeze through, she discovered Sonic breakdancing in the middle of a circle of people, grinning arrogantly as the crowd cheered him on. Amy crossed her arms, shaking her head in embarrassment. She hoped that when it was time to dance, she’d be dancing with him, but he seemed to be having too much fun at the moment. So, she let this one instance slide. 

  Sonic got into a hand stand and made eye contact with her, giving her an excited smile. Amy playfully rolled her eyes, clapping for him. Sonic narrowed his eyes at her, and stood back on his feet. As the crowd cleared and flooded the dancefloor, he pointed a finger at her and beckoned her over. Amy grinned and scurried over to him, taking his hand and swaying to the music. 

  “You know, you could have at least told me what you were doing before ditching me. We’re on a date, remember? We’re supposed to dance together. ” she said, shaking her head. Sonic quickly averted his eyes and felt his face flush. 

“Oops, sorry…” he replied. Amy grinned, bumping her hip into Sonic’s, which caused him to stumble a little bit. 

“There, now we’re even! Haha!” 

Sonic bit his cheek, straightened out his tuxedo and brushed himself off. 

 “Be careful! This is a rental!” he said. Amy smiled and continued to dance.

  Across the room, Tails and Cream were standing by the snack counter, sipping on sodas and munching on gummy worms and cookies. The two watched as their best friends’ date seemed to be going really well. Tails took a sip from his soda can and leaned over towards Cream.

 “They seem to be having fun.” he said casually. Cream nodded as she took a huge bite from her cookie. 

 “Mmhm! I hope they kiss!” she said dreamily. Tails cringed and shook his head.

“Eww, gross! I hope I’m not watching if it happens.” he remarked, sticking his tongue out to prove his point. Cream giggled. She wondered why it grossed him out so much, though. Perhaps boys are just not into love like girls are. She was just about to ask when a stranger bumped into her.

 “Whaoah!” She fell over, saved at the last second by Tails. He caught her hand, and pulled her back up.

“You okay?” he asked, giving her a worried look. Cream blushed incredibly hard, She stared at him for a moment before brushing herself off in embarrassment. 

  “Y-yes! I’m okay, thank you!” she said. Tails raised a brow, perplexed by her odd behavior.

  Meanwhile, Sonic and Amy were still on the dance floor. Amy swooned as Sonic took her hand and playfully spun her around. Her heart swelled, loving the way he was smiling at her. Looks like her date was going well after all! 

 “So, Sonic, are there any new adventures you and Tails will be going on?” she asked, pausing for a moment to catch her breath. Sonic looked towards the floor and crossed his arms. 

“Nahh, I don’t think so. I think we might take a break on the big crazy stuff and chillax. It would be nice to go on a vacation.” he replied.

 “Sonic, your entire life is basically a vacation. I mean, is there anywhere on this planet you haven’t gone to?” said Amy. Sonic opened his mouth to say something, but had no words to contribute to the conversation. He shrugged his shoulders with a defeated look. Sonic suddenly felt his stomach grumble, and he looked down at his tummy. He licked his lips and glanced over to the snack bar, where endless treats awaited him. 

 “Hey, you hungry? I’m gonna get something to eat.” he said, pointing towards the gigantic cake sitting on the table across the room. Amy nodded her head and followed him, feeling a bit hungry herself. 

 Once they made it to the snack bar, Sonic grabbed a plate and started piling on food. Everybody knew Sonic was the type to eat with his eyes, but once they actually saw just how much he can shove down his throat in one sitting, people began to wonder how he was able to stay so thin. Amy watched in embarrassment as other party goers began to stare in shock. She tapped his shoulder.

“Erm..Sonic? Don’t you think you should leave some for the rest of us?” she asked. Sonic took a moment to inspect his mountain of sweets. He nodded in agreement, and put a single brownie back before happily trotting towards their table. Amy took a moment to apologize to the people waiting in line before awkwardly scurrying over to Sonic. She noticed a piece of jello slipping off his plate, but was too focused on the task at hand to pick it up 

  “Are you sure you won’t get sick eating all those?” Amy asked.

 “Oh, please. I got this.” 

  Amy shook her head in shock. How could he physically do it?! As humorous as it was, it still freaked her out very much. 

   She looked down at her hands and twiddled her thumbs. Sonic took his chair and placed it next to her. He sat down and stared at the crowd of people on the dance floor.

 “You’re such a goof.” she said.

  Sonic turned towards her, raising a brow. Before he could reply, the DJ’s voice came over the speaker.

“Okay, ladies and gentlemen. It’s time we take it slow. So, grab a partner and make some sweet memories!” he said in a low, flirty voice. Sonic looked up as the room became dimmer and a few pink lights lit up the dance floor. The music began to play and couples began to pull each other close. Sonic sat in silence and curiously watched the couples dance. 

  He looked over to Amy, who seemed to be too busy staring at the floor to even notice what was going on. He frowned, feeling like she may be a little bored with him. He silently examined her, faintly smiling at the way she nervously fidgeted.

 He suddenly had an idea. Smiling, Sonic stood up and offered his hand to Amy. Amy slowly looked up, her stomach fluttered at the sight of his hand. She slowly blinked in surprise. The two stared at each other for a moment, then Sonic took the pink rose pinned to his tux and stared at it in his palms.. 

“Look, I know this is probably the only reason you asked me to come here, so…” he knelt down. 

  Amy’s eyes widened. Was he doing what she thought he was doing?

Sonic stuck the rose over Amy’s heart. He took her hand and helped her stand up. Amy’s heart began to beat faster.

“Will you dance with me?” he asked. 

 Amy beamed, holding back giggles of excitement. The singer’s voice filled the silence between them.

“Pain is just a consequence of love, I’m saying sorry for the sake of us..”

Amy gulped and timidly nodded her head and reached out to accept his hand.

    “OH my GOSH! It’s Sonic The Hedgehog!!” said a female voice. A glamorous raccoon scurried over to them. She was wearing a very form-fitting purple dress with one shoulder strap gorgeous silver jewels decorated the bodice.

Her hair was twisted up into a very beautiful and elegant bun, and she was wearing purple eyeshadow and a matte red lipstick. The girl smiled confidently at Sonic, not even giving Amy the slightest inclination that she knew she was sitting there.

“Oh my gosh! I can’t believe it’s really you!! Ugh, I’m such a huge fan! Can I please have a picture?!” she said excitedly, pulling out her cellphone. Sonic was a bit startled at first, but he decided to be nice and allow her to take the photo.

 Amy felt a huge spike of jealousy as the girl leaned over and placed her arm around Sonic. She pressed her cheek against his, puckering her lips as if she were about to kiss him. Sonic awkwardly smiled as the picture was taken. Then, suddenly, as the camera flashed, the girl turned her head and planted a kiss right on Sonic’s lips.

 Amy suddenly found herself almost lunging at the girl, but she caught herself at the last second. Her cheeks were heating up and a hidden flame erupted within her, causing her blood to boil with rage.

“Thank you so much! Say, you look so much cuter in person. You must have a really good girl in your life, huh?” said the girl. Amy felt her face soften a little as the girl glanced at her for a brief moment. Sonic swallowed air and tried to reply, but was so flustered by what she had just done that he didn’t come up with a response in time. The girl placed a hand on Sonic’s shoulder, sneaking a proud smirk towards Amy.

“Maybe not…look, if you ever want a woman in your life, give me a call~” she said with a flirty wink. Sonic frowned and touched his lips as the girl blew a kiss at him and sashayed away. Amy let out an angry groan, grabbing her fork and stabbing it into the table. Sonic turned towards his date and placed his knuckle in between his teeth. 

“Grrrr! She totally did that on purpose!” Amy said, ready to toss the table at the girl’s head. Sonic pressed his lips together and shrugged his shoulders.

“Hey, don’t worry about it, Amy. I’m sure she didn’t mean anything-” he said.

“She did too! I could tell! She was trying to get me jealous! That little..grrr!!!!” Amy puffed her cheeks out and her ears were getting redder and redder. Sonic stood up and cautiously approached Amy. 

“Well, you’re not gonna let her win, are ya? I know you’re mad, but it’s not worth it!” 

 Amy stared at Sonic for a moment. Her eyes landed on the red lipstick smudged across his mouth. Her gaze hardened and she sat down.

“Maybe not, but you didn’t do much to stop it from happening.” 

~Continue till the end, my dude <3~

~Alrighty! This is gonna be fun! :Db~

Sonic, in a moment of defeat, took a big breath in and let it puff out of his nose slowly… staring at Amy, he knew this wasn’t going to be easy to recover from.

Trust him, it wasn’t easy getting over the shock of a surprised kiss either…

He let his hands dangle a bit before reaching up and smudging away the lipstick from his face.

“Alright… Alright… fair enough.” he pretended to walk up to someone behind her, and peeked back to smile at her before continuing his act.

“Uh, excuse me? Sir? You wouldn’t mind kissing my date for me, would ya?”

Amy gasped, applaud by him even daring to-

She turned around and sighed in relief, before smacking his side as punishment for making her freak out.

“Not funny!”

He leaned back, lifting a leg up and holding his hands out by his face to protect it, before walking back in front of her and chuckling slightly.

He put his hands to his hips and leaned his head down, letting the last bits of laughter out of his system before gesturing his hand out to her again.

“I swear, Amy. I never gave it another thought.” he smiled, “Wasn’t special enough too.”

Amy had her arms refolded, one leg over the other and staring at the hand she had longed to take this entire night…

She glanced up at his eyes, seeing the integrity of sincerity in them, and sighed.

She pouted slightly, her anger slowly disappearing as she took the hand and allowed him to help her up. “But never again. Alright?”

“Is that something I pinkie-promise?” he teased, leaning close to her face and wiggling his pinkie at her.

She giggled and turned her head away, batting her hand out to his own to get him to knock it off and move it.

They walked to the dance floor, Sonic adjusting his collar once more before growing strangely… nervous again.

“E-eh…umm…” he smiled nervously up to her, before shyly looking to his feet as if uncertain how to coordinate this…

“I, uh.. heh. I don’t usually do anything… well, ‘slow’.” he made a comical look up with eyebrows raising before back down in a puzzled expression.

“Now.. um…” he tried to make this fun, looping her hand, before turning her back and criss-crossing their arms, and then shaking his head; biting his lower lip, he kept mumbling, “This..? No… no, not that… not that way either… well, let me see now…”

Tails, walking over to the table, suddenly remembered something and pulled Cream’s chair out for her.

“Heh-heh. I studied etiquette, just to be prepared for this evening.” he closed his eyes as if too bashful to admit he just wanted to be a gentlemen on his first, technically real date, and sweated a little in his awkward feeling.

His tails swished out as Cream’s bunny-bun tail rapidly shook at his impression.

“Oh! Mr. Tails, it’s wonderful! Thank you for being so prepared…” she happily sat down, flapping her ears enough to actually fully get up on the tall chair, and put her hands to the table.

He pushed her in and then happily sat beside her, before seeing Sonic and twitching his ear.

He laughed.

“It’s not rocket science.” Tails shook his head to lightly tease his friend. “I offered him an internet search article I found, but he refused to even give it a look!” he flashed out his hand and then shook his head in disappointment.

“Serves him right.” He stuck his nose up, as Cream lightly giggled in her own nerves and then looked down.

“Oh… but you shouldn’t judge Mr. Sonic on something.. w-well, that you’ve never experienced yourself either. M-Mr. Tails…”

Her little feet slid over the other, she looked down and away…

She was fidgeting with an idea she dared now speak, thinking it may be rude to ask when it’s usually the boy who asks a girl.. to… w-well, to..

She gripped her chair tighter beneath her.

“…H-huh?” Tails turned back to her, moving his hand off from under his smug little chin before realizing she was right.

“Hmm.” he gave it some more thought, “You know, maybe you’re right.”

He moved the fancy napkins that Sonic had started shredding away from him and scooted his chair back out, getting in front of her and bowing humbly with a swish of his arm over his chest.

She was amazed by the fluid movement, as her eyes lit up and followed the gesture down.

“Mr. Tails?”

“Miss Cream.” he spoke elegantly, as if trying to continue his ‘fancy streak’.

“Would you be so kind as to accompany me to the dance floor?”

He looked up and winked, trying to be just as charming as Sonic could be.

Her face all at once turned to a happy expression of surprise, as her hands gently caressed the sides of her face.

“Oh, yes please! I would love to!”

Taking his hand, she stood upright on the chair, and looked around her for a way down.

Tails broke his gentlemen like smile and realized he had to look around for a stool too.

Not finding one in time, he just looked at his tails, “Ah-ha! Hehe!” he flopped them out and they were the perfect stairs for her small stature.

She beamed and happily, lightly as to not hurt him, quickly stepped on his tails he had out for her to get down.

The two held hands before trying to avoid the bigger adults on the floor, but found a small space and began to try and dance slowly together.

Now, with an ~unexpected role-model~ Sonic looked ahead saw Tails and Cream laughing, twirling around as they went by.

He smiled, “Oh.. I get it!” he pulled Amy closer.

The new engagement sent a rapid flow of warm jitters up Amy’s whole being, and she felt the tingling sensation of it exit through her fingers and nose.

Her ears flopped back a bit as she looked up to Sonic, stunned speechless.

He saw no response from her, initially, and just tried to get her hands placed where Tails and Cream were.

“Like this?”

He looked behind him to make sure one hand was up around his neck, and then that his own was by her waist, and the other holding her hand out.

“Hmm.. something looks off.” He stretched his mouth out to the sides of his muzzle, before looking back to Amy when she gently breathed out his name.

“What?”

He suddenly was frozen in terror.

His eyes widened as he realized how close he was holding her.

“W-wha-woah!… woah…” he broke all the ‘hard-work’ he had just done in positioning them and rolled his arms around in a panicked like motion.

He then got all jumbled up before trying to straighten himself out again.

“Ehem.” he coughed into his hand.

“Maybe I’m not such a good dancer… with someone else.” he turned from her as his cheeks turned pink like the lights above, and itched his twitchy nose…

Amy softly lowered her hands and giggled, clutching her stomach before covering her mouth with the back fo her hand.

“Sonic, you’re ridiculous! Hahaha!”

Seeing her laugh… turning to fully face her and notice how beautiful she really did look…

His eyes drooped slightly but his mouth curled back and down nervously still… his head leaning back as his ears turned the same.

This odd feeling…

He had felt it seen she took his hand and asked him out on this crazy Spring Fling thingamajig.

He sighed though, and put a hand back to his heart where the flower use to be, and smiled.

“Amy.”

She suddenly stopped laughing, looking at his honest-to-goodness face.

He actually looked like he wanted to have fun with her now.

“Care to teach me?” he had wondered about that dress feeling like a cloud..

Now he could test his hypothesis.

If he could last five seconds remaining close to her.. that is.

Amy stepped happily forward with a bounce in her step, her face bright with love’s excitement as she moved her hands and his own in their proper places.

“Like so, but-..ah.” She turned and raised a finger up, “You have to lead.” she winked to him, being flirty again.

He looked away and sweat dripped down the side of his face, showing his awkward nerves as he tried to guide her.

Watching Tails and Cream twirl around didn’t help at all…

She wanted a big-girl dance…

He mouth kept slipping into a swingle of nervous tension as he tried to figure out the steps and moves.

Amy slightly lost her smile at seeing him fidget so much, and finally decided to help him out.

“Sonic.” she stepped up, stopping them from dancing.

“Wha-huh? What’d I do wrong now?” his hands were sweaty, and he really didn’t know if he could deal with Amy scolding him right now..

He already felt like a dweeb.

She shook her head lovingly to him, “It’s really not that complicated. Hold me close.”

“….Amy’s that the thing’s that hard…” he whined slightly.

“How am I suppose to know where both are feet are going if I can’t look down?”

“Look right here.” she tilted his head with a light tap of her finger, and swayed back and forth with him.

“My eyes will tell you where I’m going.. where I’ve gone, and where I’ll be.” she spoke very softly, almost as a whisper as her eyes lured his being closer.

Suddenly… Sonic could feel which way the ‘wind blew’ so to speak, and could easily guide her where he wished.

“Heh, cool.” He lightly breathed out, his eyes unable to look away from her own..

“B-but you know, I don’t really do slow. Heh heh…” he tried for the joke, feeling so skittish; he might just puke.

“One.. two… one… two.” Amy slowly helped picked up the pace, and lifted some of her skirt to be more ‘proper’ in her dancing.

His mind suddenly lost all nerves.

Going blank, his hand held her dress closer, and felt the light silk cotton underneath them, hot to the touch but just right under the night sky…

The lights complimented her natural pink blush and all of a sudden…

They were dancing the night away!

Tails laughed with Cream as he twirled her one more time, catching Sonic’s eyes for a moment from Amy’s hypnotic timing and mimicked it too, twirling her around before catching her again.

However, by doing so, his hands landed to her hips…

Her hands… around his neck.

They held their, posed for perfect…

A kiss not too far away?

“That was fun..” Amy’s nerves were finally getting to her. The shock of it all being more perfect than she imagined caught her in her own whimsical fantasies and left her unable to comprehend anything but his arms around her…

Sonic… couldn’t even see or hear anything other than her and her… lovely voice.

“Really?” he gently lowered his head to her forehead. “I hadn’t noticed...” he whispered, teasing her a moment as he went for her cheek.

Not letting him slip away with merely that, she tilted her head towards it…

He held back a moment, their swaying stopping as his eyes lowered to her lips… then back up at those.. fixed, taunting eyes…

Oh, he really wanted to.

Not to admit he kinda owed it to her after that other girl-

He shook his head, not wanting to relive that part.

Amy took that the wrong way and pulled out.

“I’m sorry.” she looked away, tears almost forming at thinking she was rejected.

“I promised I wouldn’t cuddle or-or flirt with you with Tails and Cream around. I-I’ll let you go now.” She started to move away, as if to part, and reached for his arms around her.

Fearing the sudden detachment, he instinctively stopped her, pulling her right up next to him.

“No!”

She was amazed by his quick reflexes but even more so by how he said…

“…No…” he started to breath in a more startled manner, before regaining himself.

He leaned his head closer, swallowing as if trying to work up the courage to-..

Well, at least try!

“Sorry, i wasn’t- I didn’t mean to- Oh, Amy.. you really do look beautiful it’s just I-” His head moved all around, and Amy’s eyes watched every movement until she heard him call her beautiful.

At that moment, she went for it!

Leaping up on her tippity-toes, she gave him everything she had in a forceful press against his own lips.

He was initially wrapped in confusion, before the moment took hold and he allowed it to be as it was.

Emm… more so than her dress actually feeling like how he pictured dry clouds to be.. she also tasted of sweets~

Addicted for a second to the feeling and being locked, even trapped in this other world by his own will- He was suddenly drawn out of it by a high pitch squee.

But it wasn’t Amy when he opened his eyes.

Instead, the two both looked confused before looking to Cream, having both hands in fists over her mouth at her excitement.

“I’m so sorry! Miss Amy, Mr. Sonic! But I’m just so.. I couldn’t help it! Hehe! Congratulations!” she thought they were officially together now.

Amy grinned with glee and hugged Sonic, kicking a leg up and not correcting her as Sonic tried too, waving his hands around in front of him and Amy, repeating- “No, no, no-no-no!”

Tails stuck out his tongue and tried to shove his finger in his mouth, before being tugged by Cream down as she politely pointed to his cheek.

“May I..?”

He blushed and looked away, panicking with his arms and tails before finally nodding and closing his eyes.

“Uh-huh.”

She kissed him likely with a peck on the cheek, and then shyly turned away and swayed herself back and forth with her rapid heartbeat.

He flung open his eyes and then sighed, drooping himself and his eyelids down as he let the strange sensation take it’s place…

The night was wonderful, but slowed down even more as Tails and Cream walked on ahead, carrying sweets for Vanilla, and Sonic and Amy tarried behind.

It was almost pitch blank now, and Sonic swung one foot out in front of the other, grabbing leaves from low tree branches by his side and flicking them off to his sides.

“So… About tonight.” Amy twiddled her fingers, hoping she could finish the date off by confessing.

“I just wanted to say.. I think we’re-”

“What?! I don’t know!? Maybe!? It depends… Why do we have to slap a title on it!? I don’t really care. Do you care? Well, of course you care- I-I mean, I kinda- well, it’s obvious that we- Anyway, who says we’re together?!” As if having been stressing over this topic coming up, Sonic started to rapidly relay the thoughts darting through his mind, acting it out, before Amy looked unamused at him cutting her off and smacked both hands to his face to hold him steady.

“I was gonna say in love.” she looked a little upset, but sighed as she held his face and stopped herself from walking.

Moving more towars him, she looked tenderly into his frightened expression.

“Why can’t you just remain still for five minutes?”

“…Why can’t you stop loving me so much..? Heh…” he nervously tried to joke again, but she smiled sweetly to him.

“I think you’re bluffing…” she smirked, raising her eyes to his own and tilting her head as if inviting him to quit the act and say he loves her already.

She was basically begging to be wanted and taken up by him again.

She wanted to be swept off her feet… at least… one more time.. before they parted ways.

“U-uhmm..” he backed up, but ended up against a tree and held a hand up to a branch, as if to steady himself.

“B-bl-bluf-bluffing what? My hand? Haha, don’t answer that!” he shifted a comical pointer finger out as if warning her to not go for the ‘wedding’ pun, but she didn’t.

She shook her hand and lowered her hands to her hips.

She then leaned forward, “Sonic The Hedgehog. I think you want to kiss me again and call me yours~” she flirted.

“Pfft! Preposterous.” he scoffed, before freaking out as she stepped closer and leaned himself more against the tree.

“They say.. don’t shoot until you see the white of their eyes.” Amy cooed, leaning her head directly up by his own…

“..I thought you were trying to kiss me. Not shoot me.” he frowned, not liking the anaolgy. “Though I guess love can sting just as much.” He couldn’t stop going for hte joke, he was too nervous!

“Isn’t that why cupid has arrows..?” She scaled her fingers up his chest, and he gulped in utter fright.

Or.. a… big… fat.. hammer..?”

She went for the kiss but he turned his face and then skedaddled with the wind at his heels.

“OHHHH-OOOPH!!” She tightened her fist and puffed up her cheeks, wiggling herself aggressively at him getting away.

“That boy! It was all going so perfect! Why’d he have to bail!?” She huffed and stomped off passed Tails and Cream, head down, fuming with annoyance.

“Huh? Miss Amy?”

“I’m fine!”

“Uh oh…” Tails looked to Cream, worriedly looking after Amy who had stepped between their conversation.

“I think Sonic chickened out.” Tails sighed, shrugging, “Well, you gotta give him props for staying this long… Honestly, I thought he was planning to slip out hours ago..?” he scratched his chin, before Amy got halfway to Cream’s house-

She was suddenly scooped off her feet.

“WAH!”

“Wait!”

“Now what?!”

Amy kicked and squirmed in his arms, as he slightly dipped her and looked worried.

“Don’t freak out!”

“I’m not freaking out! I’m mad at you!” she fussed more but he cut her off, holding her close.

“Offph! What the-?”

He suddenly muttered something quietly.

She stopped fidgeting and shifted her eyes left and right, trying to hone in with her ears on what he was trying to say to save himself this time…

“I can’t hear you, you idiot!”

“..Grr..” his ears moved back, and he grumbled it out a little louder.

“What?”

His head moved from her shoulder to against her own head.

“I LIKED DANCING WITH YOU TONIGHT!”

She remained still.

Blinking, her face shifted to a quiet confusion.

“I loved tonight too.”

His ears kept shifting before he looked away, seeming embarrassed and annoyed at himself.

“I’ll keep the tux.” he finally spat out.

“…If you ever want to go again…”

Then her eyes rose in understanding.

“OH SON-!”

he plugged her mouth.

“But t-this time! No kids tagging along too, alright?”

“Fine by me~” she gently pushed the hand away and then started to kiss his face, making him flip out more and spread his arms around to try and avoid her.

“H-hey! Amy! C-calm down! I-I-I think one kiss is good for the nig-EMM!!!!”

And when Amy finally got back, her hair a mess and her dress all wrinkled and dirt-covered, she leaned against the door to close it and sighed; dreamily.

She swayed up the stairs as Cream and Vanilla looked to each other.

“You’re back late.” Vanilla rose an eyebrow.

“Oh, Miss Amy! What happened to your lovely dress!?” Cream exclaimed, seeing how ruined it looked.

Amy gripped the railing and pulled back, swinging around on it before skipping up the stairs.

“My perfect Spring Fling date night~ That’s what!”

“Date went well?” Vanilla was mostly sarcastic. She knew what had happened.

“Well, please remember you were suppose to take Cream home too. But she arrived with Tails as her faithful guard so I’ll let you off the hook this time. Did Sonic make it back alright?” She was implying something that went over Amy’s head.

“I don’t know~ He came and he went~ Teehee~” she was swooning like a drunk, but it was only because her feet couldn’t feel the ground anymore.

She was up on cloud-nine. But Vanilla was relieved it she was back home at a decent time.

(for further clarity, Vanilla was meant to imply that they only kissed a lot -kinda made-out- nothing more!)

Laura’s goodbye

Hello petals, yesterday and today I talked with Laura about why she decided to delete her blog. 

I understood her reasons and I agreed (ofc, duh) to post this message on her behalf. Now I beg you, please read her words, for she really, really wanted to let you all know why she did such a thing. 

What you’ll read it’s extremely important and I hope you can find a bit of time to think about her reasons and the whole situation concerning our fandom and the relationship between writers and readers. 

I’m sure we all will miss Laura, because she was not only a great writer but also a lovely, beautiful person <3

So, without further ado, these are Laura‘s words for you.


Hello guys! It’s Laura (previously @pantaemonium-deactivated2017062).
First of all I want to thank my dear Conny for allowing me to post this on her blog. I really wanted to have a chance to say goodbye to you. 

Many of you will be wondering what happened, how did someone who had just posted that morning and gave no sign whatsoever that she was going to leave… actually left with no explanation at all. Truth be told, I had been thinking about deleting for the longest time. As time passed, I felt more burdened, more pressured to write Fallout, or create contents you would like instead of going for the stories I wanted to write and, at some point I could no longer write a word of the many stories I had started out of an impulse. For someone whose only way of expressing herself is writing, this was devastating and it was taking a great toll on my mental health I was not willing to face for the sake of my blog.

“Movie star!”

She yelled, arms outstretched dramatically as if she were about to hug a large child and not her best friend of several thousand millennia. Well, at least it felt like it.

“Ugh….”

He said, wrapping his arms around her as they met in the middle of her campus quad. She felt smaller than before but then again, they hadn’t seen each other since she started university and he went off to film.

“Good to see your face! How much is it insured for?”

She asked him, playfully slapping his cheek. He frowned at her as they began to walk towards her room. Matching her pace was easy and familiar. It felt just like old times to him but she was secretly hoping he wouldn’t notice her newest realisation and see it in her movements.

She swiped her student id and allowed him to enter through, only to let the door go at the last moment so it slammed against his face. Rubbing his face in annoyance, he followed her.

“That wasn’t funny!”

“Oh. It really was though.”

Tom lowered his cap. He really didn’t want to be recognized and the deeper they walked into her building, the more chances he had of being found.

When he told his agent he was going to visit his best friend and try to maintain their feeble 13 year friendship at her very public, very crowded university right after the release of his hit film Spider-man: Homecoming, she had laughed. She had thought it was his British sarcasm again, like that time he suggested being sent off to an American school for the part of Peter Parker. But when he broke it to her that he was in indeed, serious, she frowned at him and simply watched him have his way. That was in his opinion, one of the only advantages of fame.

Still, he didn’t want to be recognised.

Retta on the other hand, really couldn’t care less about his fame.

She wanted no part in that part of her best friend’s life, having made it clear as crystal when he asked her to accompany her to the superhero film he was leading.

They walked to the end of the hall until they were standing in front of her room.

“My roommate’s at her boyfriend’s. So it’s cool to chill here.”

He nodded, letting the small overnight bag he had packed to stay over drop to the floor. Closing the door quickly, Retta spread her arms out dramatically again.

“Welcome to the palace, movie star! What can I get you?”

“Another nickname.”

“Ehhhh…..error on that request. Wouldja like to request something else?”

He shook his head from side to side and then sat down, a small smile plastered on his face. He looked around to see pictures of them and many others she did not recognise stuck to her wall. Retta’s bed had a soft blue quilt that Tom ran his fingers over, wondering if his life would be like this had he never started Saturday classes at Nifty Feet.

“You’re not longing for a normal life, are you? Cause you’ve got your longing face on.”

“I don’t have one.”

“Yes. Yes, you do, Thong-ass and you know it.”

He cringed internally at her other nickname for him and settled on folding his hands on his lap.

“How’s Uni?”

He asked quite innocently.

“Uni is Uni, mate-a pain in the ass that leaves you in so much debt you work a job you hate to pay it off.”

Tom looked startled, which entertained Retta thoroughly.

“Hey bud, I told you before didn’t I? It’s not some fairy-tale where you get great grades while maintaining a healthy social and personal life.”

“Then what it is?”

“Bad grades, poor skin, no sleep, not eating to save money, eating cheap ramen, trying to date but only ending up being friends-with-benefits because you don’t have enough time to manage everything.”

He didn’t say anything, letting the words she had said seep in. When he thought of Uni, he thought about studying to get a degree to do a job he loved. He had never really pondered on the reality of it. He had never spent time thinking about the technicalities because he never had to. He was set for life and he knew it.

“The movies get it wrong more times than they get it right.”

Tom folded his arms over his chest and shrugged.

“Yeah. I guess people do have a habit of romanticising things they barely understand.”

“Woah! Deep Tom-you turning into a poet too?”

“I think I’ll leave the writing to you, Ret.”

“Smart idea.”

She said smiling. She knew they were just teasing but Tom had always thought she was a great writer-a writer that should have her work published professionally. He had even offered to give her some connections to make her dream come true. But she had declined. Even though Tom didn’t have any arrogance or malice in his heart when it came to the subject, she still wanted to ‘make it’ on her own.

They looked at each other for a few minutes, absorbing all the words that had been exchanged. Tom appreciated her honesty more than anything else, especially now that he was in an industry which was built on being professional liars. He knew well enough that he could count on her. Retta liked that he would ask questions and talk things through without making assumptions. She knew he was busy living his life and making a great career but in the end, when it came down to it, he would stay up late listening to her complain about bullshit because it was important to her. He always had.

They had been looking at each other for a few moments, absorbing all the words that had been exchanged when there was loud knocking on the door.

“Oh shit!”

My Student Scholar’s Day presentation was so much more successful than I thought it would be. Wow. I mean WOW. I know that the amount of work and care I put into things like presentations (or, really, communication in general) suggests that, yes, my work should be “good” and not “bad”. Better than those who don’t give a single shit, at the least. But the feedback I got was seriously incredible. And not just on my outfit.

Immediately after my presentation when I sat down, the physics department chair (who is also my physics major advisor and QM professor) said to me, “I’ve never seen you present before. But you really have a knack for this. Seriously. Where did you learn to do that?” I did not have an answer for him. But he again congratulated me and shook my hand. Dr. C was impressed and shook my hand. He is the professor I want to impress most! I look up to him in almost every way! He’s a theoretical quantum physicist! He’s the best professor I’ve ever had! My #1 favorite! He is amazing at communicating course material! The best presenter I know! Ahh! Even now I’m still flustered thinking about that compliment.

My research advisor followed suit and also shook my hand. But I was so surprised and fangirl-y that Dr. C was congratulating me so highly that I honestly don’t remember what my research advisor said to me in that moment. Lol.

Then I was whisked away by some nice girl with a camera who interviewed me. She asked me who I was, my major, what my research is, how I like my advisor, how I like my college, etc. That was completely unexpected so I hope I sounded competent.

Apparently my dad was chatting with the biology department head earlier and after I was taken aside, she asked him to congratulate me for her, because she was impressed. I’m surprised she remembered me because I dropped her Cell & Molecular Biology class when I decided not to do biochem anymore.

The feedback from other students was mostly generic but positive. Interpret that as you will.

I later attended the poster session so I could see my friends’ work (and get some free food). While I was there I received a lot more congratulations from various chemistry, physics, and even biology faculty.

Ok so apparently this is confusing

@cjwritesfanfiction is not me. Idk how y'all think she is when I’ve referred to her as my friend in my videos, and call her “bb, kitten” and say I love you to her.

That’d be really weird if I was saying that to me😂😂😂

Anywho, she’s a great writer with talents beyond my abilities. Appreciate her great talents and recognize that she’s super important and special and phenomenal at writing. She’s not just my friend, she’s her own person who’s super kind and funny and like I said, talented. ❤️❤️❤️

That is all.

anonymous asked:

Yeah, it would be great if you could call out people. I want to see who your friends are, and maybe why I like to make friends with them!

wellllll okay, get ready for a list cause i like a lot of people on here :D i’m also going to include people who i just think are cool and deserve a shout out

Appreciation post

I’m gonna take a page out of @wiseinnerwhispers‘ book, because the post they made was so sweet and it made my day, and we could always use some more positivity, right?


um okay, so @toosicktoocare is the whole entire reason I’m even on Tumblr.  I stalked her’s (and others’) blogs for months and months before I got the courage to make an account and message her.  She’s also the reason I even started posting anything on here

I love @fevers-and-flus with all of my heart.  She’s a wonderful human being who deserves every good thing in the world and she’s just so nice and supportive and she’s such a great writer

I started talking to @iluvthesnz pretty recently, but she’s a fabulous human being and is so funny and great and SO TALENTED (like I’m seriously in awe okay). Also, I really appreciate that she’s not bothered by how much I message her ahahaha

@taylor-tut (Beef mom) is the reason I started writing Voltron. I love her a lot, she’s a great human being, and I’m still floored that she follows me and reblogs my stuff? also I’m floored she messages me back

I’ll say this forever but @kotyonoksnz is a gift to this community.  I still don’t know how people can be so talented at art bc it’s so hard and she’s just so amazing.  She’s also the reason I started watching/writing YOI

@appynation IS ONE OF THE MODS WHO CREATED VOLTRON WHUMP WEEK.  I messaged her asking a question about it, and then we started talking more, and I love her to death.  She’s wonderful and talented and also her art is SO good.

I love @itisasign so much. She has the best tags, and she’s so sweet and she was one of the first people I talked to on here. I really appreciate her and I just love her a lot okay

@ithadtobesneezing is another person on here that I love (I love a lot of people lol y’all are so nice though).  She’s probably one of my favorite writers on here, and even though she’s not writing much lately, her blog still has A+ content

@shiveringsickies is really awesome.  She’s been through so much lately, but she’s still so positive and is just such a great person to talk to.  She’s also insanely talented at both writing and art (HOW???)

@ambulancemcclain MY CHILD.  I love her a lot, she’s great and funny and is a living meme

Can I just say how proud I am of Selena!!! She has never tried to force her music career and has always played to her strengths. She has great producers and writers around her.

And Bad Liar is such jam. It’s so different and amazing and just proves you don’t have to be Adele to make an incredible record.

retr0spectre  asked:

The Anne Rice fanfreak baffles the hell out of me. What they're saying boils down to, "She's such a great writer that everything she's ever done can be excused. I don't care about what she's personally done. Except I'm gonna butt into a conversation about what she's personally done to call everyone a liar." Feels like if you shouted in their ear, you could hear your own voice echo back to you!

Yeah, their entire rebuttal was like “this doesn’t impact how I respect her work!”

Like… Cool? But you called people being harassed liars? Even though it’s an easily verifiable fact…

anonymous asked:

Who are your favorite fandom hottie/reader smut authors?

That’s a really good question, there are so many authors that I love. And so many stories I read, so here are definitely my top three favorites, for Marvel and Supernatural.

♥ Marvel
