There are actually three “Twinkle Parks” in the world.

The original Twinkle Park was built in Station Square. The much larger “New Twinkle Park” was built near Casino Park later to further reach the family demographic. “INTwinkle Park” was built in Spagonia sometime after to expand entertainment on an international scale.

A fourth of the brand, “Twinkle Park Dynasty”, is currently under construction in Chun-nan.

Actions Speak Louder Than Words by ebbthegoatgirl

“Baz, will you fight me… for the rest of our lives?”

I’m Not As Think As You Drunk I Am by ebbthegoatgirl 

Based on the prompt: Snowbaz drabble based on the line “I’m not as drunk as you think I am” from the song “Don’t Threaten Me With a Good Time” by Panic! At The Disco.

More Magical Than The Last by theinsidiouscinnamonroll

For twenty-five years, Baz has been surrounded by magic. Twenty-five years he saw simple spells cast for simple jobs, such as washing the dishes, or doing laundry. Seven of those years where even more magical than the years prior.

Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star by acciocliffo

Baz proposes to Simon. 

Under the Mistletoe

Sneaking out of the kitchen window of your fourth floor apartment building, you started down the fire escape. You had slipped off your shoes in fear that the metal clanging with your rubber soles of your boots would not only wake your parents but the neighbors you’d be passing by. Shuddering, you quickly tried to get to the bottom. The cold, snowy metal had made your bare feet numb and completely freezing.

When you had finally reached the sidewalk, you shoved on your boots and wrapped your scarf farther around your face and took off running towards the park. As you ran, you hoped that the circulation would return to your frigid feet. It was awfully cold in New York and the weatherman hadn’t predicted the extra four inches of snow that coated the already three inch roads. The snow was still falling and you started to wonder how on Earth you were going to be able to hide your tracks going back. 

Finally reaching Central Park, you slowed your steps. Your eyes searching for someone in particular. It was quite ridiculous, really, for you to be sneaking out and about in the middle of the night but you always had done so and tonight being Christmas was no exception. Shivering against the wind, you found a darkened figure illuminated by the Oak tree covered in festive lights. Squinting your eyes, you smiled lightly at the stance of which the figure stood. It could only be the very person you had come to see. 

Scrambling through the snow, you attacked the boy with a warming hug. “Credence!”

Still foreign to the affection you had been giving him for months now, Credence tensed up. “Hi, [Y/N].” But eventually, he placed a hand on your back and settled into your hug.

Looking up at him, still laced in a hug. You breathed, “I feel like I haven’t seen you days.” Frowning, your eyebrows knitted together, “She didn’t see you sneak out, did she? I’d hate for you to get in trouble because of me.” You pulled away from gently, studying his normal withdrawn expression. It had been days since you had last seen Credence. Mary Lou was a very strict woman and always took out her frustrations on him. It made you sick to your stomach to see him with marks tainting his beautiful skin. 

Credence always had a habit of avoiding your gaze. You weren’t sure if it was because he didn’t quite trust you or if it was because he didn’t know what to do when he would stare into your eyes. Mumbling out as he kicked a bit of snow, “I’d risk it if it meant I could be with you.” 

Your heart melted, warming your entire body in the shivering cold. Your mother had told you to stay away from the Barebone’s because of what they were, Salemers, and the last thing she wanted was for her daughter to be exposed as a witch. But as the days passed by, your interest for the Barebone boy became intoxicating until you finally mustered up the courage to exchange a few words. And as those days passed of you conversing with him, it grew to be a friendship that he could escape to. 

“I don’t think I’m worth all the trouble,” you bashfully stated, “but, I’d also risk the trouble for sneaking out to see you.” Although you wouldn’t receive pain as a punishment, you could only imagine what your mother and father would do if they knew you were involved with a member of the Second Salem Church. 

The two of you stood in silence for a moment, looking at the twinkling lights of Central Park before Credence whispered out. “Do you think I’m a f-freak?” 

The expression you wore on your face made Credence blush, “A freak?! No. Absolutely not! Why would you ever ask the kind of question, Credence? I would never, that is the farthest think I think of about you.” 

Shockingly to you, he held your gaze for a moment. His dark, hurt eyes gleaming under the Christmas lights. “I-I was just curious of what you t-thought of me.” 

Stepping forward, you cupped his cheeks, “What I think of you is everything opposite of freak. I like you, Credence. I couldn’t imagine spending my Christmas with anyone else.” You dropped your hands and hugged him tight. Flicking your wrist, your wand slid out from your coat sleeve and into your hand. Looking up without Credence noticing, you waved your wand and smiled as a Mistletoe appeared. “Credence,” you whispered. 

“Yes, [Y/N]?”

You pointed upward and took advantage of Credence looking up to stick your wand in your boot. “Do you know what you’re supposed to do when you stand under a mistletoe with someone?” 

Credence looked back down at you, his cheeks being tinted by a soft shade of pink. “U-um, e-er.”

Smiling, you leaned forward, breathing gently. “Don’t worry, I do.” Pressing your lips against his, you smiled into him as you felt him reciprocate the action. Pulling apart, you nestled into his tense body. “Merry Christmas, Credence.”  

entredormidaydespierta  asked:

Soooo I was wondering, maybe you could write a kinda story about Sonic and Amy being a lil bit older (so amy is not 12 lol, maybe shes 16?) and being secret lovers? I dont mind if they're actually dating or not, but it would be so cool if they had these "make up sessions" in secret or something. If you can set it up in Modern, please? Thanks!

Make… up?

As in, they fight? xD I always make them a little older in all my sonamy stuff, I don’t quite believe a 15 year old Sonic would be in the proper ‘mindset’ for any of my stories without being a bit older. (Unless I was completely true to canon, which no one seems to ask for, so I write those on my own.) but that’s because Canon’s sonamy is very light and people want it more upfront, so to speak, not hidden away because of all the connotations that there’s nothing there or something. Sad how that works out :(

So, secret lovers? I can do that. To keep it canon though, do you mind if they’ve just recently become a couple..? That way, I can keep Sonic a little skittish like canon so it’s not so AU XD

Thanks for the ask! I hope this works for you, here I go!

(I’m gonna assume you mean some kissing… I’ll… *ehem* do what I can ;) )

Prompt:

Amy was thrilled that Sonic was spending more time with her, sitting under a tree as they ‘hung out’ together.

He seemed half asleep though, and she looked up, wanting a bit more attention or for this day to go a little more how she would like it.

However… she had to be cautious!

She looked down, saddened by that fact but also determined to succeed, her little mouth forming a pout as her fists came up close together by her face.

She had a plan!

She didn’t want to scare off Sonic from this recent decision to spend more time with her, but she also wanted to make sure he knew what he was getting into…

She took a deep breath, and slowly tried to reach for his hand.

His eyes blinked open, and he gave her a funny look, raising his eyebrow.

She flinched back and hid her face down by his chest, not sure what to do…

She had to try something!

“S…Sonic?” she got up slightly, blinking worriedly to him as she tried to think of how to word this right… “W..want to play a game?”

He tilted his head, “A game?”

At least she got him talking a bit…

“Emhm.” she nodded, “If you want the date to end, you have to play this game first, and then- I’ll let you go!” Amy held a finger up, stating the new rule, before happily lowering her hands to her lap and smiling brightly, eyes closed at her brilliant scheming.

Suspicion spread across Sonic’s face, and she sweat dropped at it.

“What kind of game..?” he seemed to mumble out, yawning before getting up.

“It’s just like your Acts! with each Stage containing another level!” she explained, and put her hands together. “First Act!”

She took his hand, and swung it around, “Stage 1!”

His eyes looked a little concerned,… thinking this weird, he looked back up at her.

“…Eh-heh… heh…” she let go of the hand. “Stage 2!” she leaned close and stared into his eyes.

When he looked away, nervous, she pouted and made a new rule up on the spot.

Who was she kidding, this was all made up on the spot!

“5 seconds for each!”

“5 seconds?!” Sonic turned back to her, blinking in surprise and pulling his frown back, clearly not happy about that as his hand moved over himself, as if in defense.

“Ohhh, quit complaining or I won’t let you leave!” she puffed a side of her cheek up, making him innerwardly smile at the cute drama she usually had whenever he was around her.

He sighed and sat, holding his legs as they stared at one another for a moment…

“Good!” Amy clapped, then winked to hold up two fingers, “Act 2!”

He rolled his eyes.

Cautiously, she moved herself closer to him, and leaned her head against his shoulder.

He leaned back, “Uhh…” feeling uncomfortable, even if they were just like this a few seconds ago…

“…3…4….5! Good job! Stage cleared!” Amy praised, making him feel even more out of place.

“Amy…” he thought that was a bit much, but she continued, putting his hands around her waist. “Okay! Stage 2!”

“H-hang on a second!” Sonic squirmed, but she gave him a fierce look of disapproval, and he stopped struggling, sweat dropping.

She smiled, “3…4….5! Okay! Act 3!”

“Amy, isn’t this a little mu-”

He paused.

His eyes widened.

Her forehead touched his.

This was probably the closest he had ever been to her… or even another girl for that matter.

Suddenly his mouth opened as his brain started connecting the dots of what was happening…

And what the next Stage may be…

“4…5! Okay! Last Stage!” Amy suddenly lost her smile.

Her eyes fluttered a moment before she looked away.

“…S-so… Act 3′s stage 2 is um… you have to um…” she closed her eyes, thinking it unfair to have their first… well, kiss like this, so she switched directions.

She leaned her cheek up to him, and closed her eyes, blushing.

“You have to kiss my cheek and hold it for 5 seconds.”

Now Sonic was mute.

His body bristled up with his quills as he shook, his hands moving off of her and his face looking horrified.

This was her big plan!?

They had been hanging out more lately, that’s true, but just because he was starting to date her doesn’t mean…

He looked away, his mind working through what was happening before she blinked one eye open.

She looked away, as if disappointed, before up with a slight sweat mark to the side of her face, as if nervous that if she let him off the hook now, she may never ‘condition’ him into being more intimate with her…

“Y-..You j-j-just have to do it for 5 seconds. Tops.” she closed her eyes again. “It… it’s not bad! Honest! You’ll see…” she waited, as he looked back at her.

the wind was suddenly chilly, and she didn’t like this feeling…

This was wrong,… she shouldn’t do this.

“On second thought…” she was about to give in, before shaking her head and forcing herself to show no mercy!

“Emm-emm! I’m not giving up! I’ll go first!” she put her hands up by her face, being strong, kissed him with a bit of force by his cheek.

His mouth suddenly swished to the middle of his face, as a heat rose up to his face but no color showed this sensation.

He suddenly was about to speed off, but his legs were trapped under where she was leaning over him to perform this ‘stage’ as she called it.

She leaned away, smiling then.

“Okay, now you’re turn.”

There was a second of silence, before he slowly moved a leg up.

“Ah..” she saw what he was attempting to do.

“NOOO!!!” she leaped before he could fully race away, and grabbed his leg, as he struggled to crawl away.

“You have to complete the stages!!! Sonic!!!” she wasn’t going to let him out of this one!

He looked back, still squeamish before his eyes lightened to a softer look, seeing her eyes slowly fill with tears.

“Just… 5 seconds… it isn’t a lot… is there something wrong with that..?” she bent her head down, gripping the leg she had even tighter under her.

He suddenly felt a longing then, something more than to appease her….

He scooted back, and helped her up.

She wiped her tears away, sniffing.

“Am I not pretty enough or-”

He cut her off with a sweet, gentle press upon the side of her cheek. Not really much of a kiss, but his lips were on her cheek, and he held it with a trembling and shaking body.

She blinked her eyes open a few times, before he sped off.

She was thrilled! She couldn’t wait to try it again but he had left for a long time after that… even to the point she was terrified he wouldn’t come back for good now…

Bu then…

He did come back, with chilidogs for them.

They spent every date doing different things but the routine carried.

At the beach, before telling her goodbye, he would awkwardly prepare himself and go through each stage, almost hastily, against Amy’s liking…

At the park, he freely held her hand and Amy stated it could count for the first stage, but he held it much longer than 5 seconds…

Another day, they went to twinkle park, and he felt too embarrassed to go through the last few acts with people all around them… so they went behind a booth, the lights of the ferriswheel beside them, and for the first time, he kissed her cheek without delay.

A few adventures meant they couldn’t spend time together for a while… but then…

“Okay! Last stage and I’ll see you again!” Amy, happily already in his arms from the last few acts, leaned up and kissed his cheek.

One eye squinted down, but his smile didn’t fade…

That was different.

“Good night~” she chimed, before leaning her head up and closing her eyes, waiting for the usual soft, and sweet peck on the cheek before they parted…

Suddenly, she felt a hand on the side of her face.

“Huh?”

She opened her eyes just enough to see him staring at her, a look that she had never seen before.

“..E…Eh?” she was a little takenback, before he pulled her closer to him, her body against his as suddenly the night air wasn’t so chilly anymore.

“Son…ic..?”

He leaned into her unexpecting expression… and their first kiss lasted innocently, about.. from what Amy remembers when she started counting, at least 6 seconds or more…

He pulled away, “Night, Amy.” he didn’t look phased… or uncomfortable… or even skittish.

It was as if…

Her little game worked.

“Sonic…” her eyes sparkled with the stars, amazed by him actually initiating the next step without her encouragement.

However…

She pouted.

She couldn’t get him to kiss her on the lips after that, he would surprise her at the end of some ‘get togethers’ by doing so, but it was always when she was caught off-guard or didn’t think he would it.

One of these days,.. she wanted to catch it and make it last a little longer, letting a little more passion be put into it, but she figured he would take that step too… when he was ready.

Still~ The feelings and butterflies never left! And she never got tried of seeing flowers at her door, or being whisked away while she was out and about, being taken on adventure after adventure.

Then… at last… when the last stage came again, she took courage and kissed him first, not on the cheek this time, and attempted to hold it longer and explore more.

She suddenly felt him tense and move away, and was worried her actions may have been to much then…

But to her surprise, he grinned.

“Well.. You’ve moved on to a completely different zone.” he smirked, and suddenly she realized something.

She hadn’t told him the next zone!

“Alright, Amy. I’ll play.” he stepped up, not shying away as he had once in the past done so many times.

“But… these are my rules now.” he gave her a little look in his eye before pulling her into ‘his turn’.

She didn’t know what was really happening besides the fact that they were going to find a whole new world…

Together.

now amy visits the casino as well

yknow there was a line in sonic heroes where amy says that casino park reminds her of casinopolis despite her never going into that level, or so i thought until i read up about this.

Now this one is interesting since according to the FAQ I was reading this is only possible in the 1998 Japanese Dreamcast release I’m playing (which is known for being glitchier than the other versions of the game as a result of being rushed for Dreamcast’s launch). Anyway this glitch is far simpler than getting Gamma in. What you need to do is grab the statue outside the burger shop in Station Square, place it in front of Casinopolis, run towards it at full speed (you know you are at full speed once Amy is holding her hammer out while running), jump on top of the burger guy statue, and then on top of the statue do Amy’s catapult jump (done by pressing b while on the ground when at full speed). Then move towards the switch above Casinopolis and press the b button again to smack it with your hammer and you can just walk in like that. I didn’t need a video guide to pull this one off, it was a lot easier to understand.

Notes about this level as Amy

- Unlike Gamma, Amy warps immediately to the pinball tables with no issues and she can hit the slot machines with her hammer to get rings.
- The sewer level is a bit wonkier with Amy. Getting up the first slope is a real struggle and you can only make it up by repeatedly jumping and slowly inching your way up. Also, bizarrely the fans seem far more powerful than they were with Sonic, Tails or even Gamma. Amy zips up to the top of the level with a ridiculous amount of speed.
- Surprisingly, Amy actually has an animation for shaking herself dry at the end of the sewer level just like Sonic! However she doesn’t have one for tumbling around while being lifted by the fans (as shown in the third picture) or for taking a shower (sorry any amy enthusiasts clamoring for an amy shower scene)
- Also surprisingly, I got an emblem in this stage! Pictures of that are below. I got the emblem for having 50 or more rings upon finishing the stage. Although the game crashed upon completing the level just like with Gamma, it still saved that emblem I earned. I checked Amy’s emblems and it appears to have been awarded to me as a Twinkle Park emblem (note the ring high score for Twinkle Park being the same as my final ring count in Casinopolis confirming this). I’m guessing the game thought I was in Twinkle Park since that’s Amy’s only level in Station Square? Not sure. Kind of makes me want to try and get an emblem in this level as Gamma and see what happens there, but that would be far more of a hassle with the time limit.

Fakery Way …for Twinkle Park

Trapped In This Machine

Rating - T

Summary - Sonic has seemingly fallen madly in love with Amy, but is this sudden romance truly sincere, or is it only skin deep, hiding something sinister underneath?

I was looking for some inspiration to write a story, and I came across this drawing by @e-vay…and well, the rest is history. So if nothing else, I hope she enjoys this story, since it was her drawing that inspired it, and I hope the rest of you enjoy it too. I own nothing except the story.

No read more line, I want folks on the mobile app to actually be able to read it, it still glitches out on my phone, so apologies for the long post.


I should’ve realized from the beginning that something was wrong. How could I have been so blind as to not realize that something was suspiciously out of the ordinary with him? 

Maybe it was the extra attention he was giving me, the sudden…willingness to give affection that caused me to maybe…I dunno, not care that he was acting out of the ordinary.

He’d become everything that I wanted him to be, he was caring, affectionate, even - dare I say - loving, and all out of nowhere too. I really should’ve questioned it more, I should’ve listened to the warnings all my friends kept giving me…if I had…then maybe we wouldn’t all be fighting for our very lives right now.

xxxxxxxxx(Flashback)xxxxxxxxx

“So, Amy, how’s about a trip to Twinkle Park? I think they renewed that cute couples get in free promotion,” Sonic leaned down a bit to grin at the pink hedgehog walking next to him. “And I can’t think of any couple that would qualify more than you and me, whaddya say?”

Amy Rose blushed and giggled bashfully, playfully nudging the blue hedgehog with her shoulder before smiling up at him. To say her dream had come true would’ve been an understatement. 

Just a few days ago, she’d been wishing that Sonic would just stop beating around the bush and admit he loved her the same way she loved him…and almost as if he’d read her mind, seconds later he was at her door, offering to get some lunch with her, just the two of them.

Since then, they’d barely spent any time apart, except for sleep and necessary hygiene practices. Amy was on cloud nine, the one thing she’d always wanted had finally been given to her. 

Sonic the Hedgehog was hers at last, and he’d been giving her all the love she could ever ask for. “Well if you insist,” she giggled again. “We might as well see what’s new.”

“Hey, I have an idea,” he smirked. “Let’s invite the gang to join us, we’ll make it a group date.”

At this, Amy’s eyes widened and she looked up at him in shock. “Sonic, are you sure? I mean, you told me to keep it quiet for a while, I don’t want-”

“Chill Ames, no big deal.” Sonic shrugged. “I had a little time to think about it, and I figure that if I’m gonna be with you, I might as well let everyone know. What better way than for us to make it official at Twinkle Park?”

“Oh Sonic!” Amy lunged forward and embraced the speedy hedgehog, and held in a squeal when Sonic reciprocated the gesture. “Thank you, thank you so much!” she pulled back and ran off, waving goodbye as she looked over her shoulder. “I’m gonna go tell everyone to meet us at Twinkle Park, I’ll see you later Sonikku!”

“Seeya Ames! I can’t wait for tonight!”

xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

“Have you got anything Tails?”

“I dunno,” Tails pushed his computer chair back and sighed as he ran a hand through his hair. “I mean, other than his sudden affection for Amy, he’s still been totally Sonic.” the fox looked up at his guest. “Have you noticed anything else weird?”

“Can’t say that I have,” Knuckles the Echidna, Guardian of the Master Emerald and friendly rival to Sonic the Hedgehog, stood in Tails’ workshop trying to unravel the mystery of Sonic’s sudden emotional turnaround. “Maybe we’re just paranoid?”

“It’s possible…” Tails sighed and stood up from his chair. “I mean, I always knew that Sonic thought Amy was special in his own way, but for him to go from awkward to a regular Romeo-type all in the span of three days just sends up some red flags in my mind.”

Knuckles shrugged. “Maybe he just finally manned up and admitted how he feels, like you need to do with Cream.”

“Don’t change the subject.” Tails glared at the guardian, although his blush took away some of his intensity. “I dunno, I guess we should just keep watching, maybe Sonic really has changed.” Suddenly there was a knock on the door, and Tails went over and opened it, revealing an absolutely giddy pink hedgehog. “Oh, hi Amy.”

“Are you ready for what I have to tell you?” Then her peripheral vision registered a splotch of red, and she turned to get a better view. “Knuckles is here too! Perfect! That means one less trip I have to take!”

“What are you talking about?”

“I’m talking about the group trip we’re taking to Twinkle Park tonight!”

Tails raised an eyebrow. “We are?”

“That’s right!” Amy moved past Tails and did a little pirouette in the middle of the workshop. “I talked with Sonic and we agreed that we should get the whole gang together to have some fun, y'know, as friends!”

“This seems pretty sudden Amy, why now and not before?” Tails said as he scratched his chin in suspicion.

“Well duh,” Amy replied with her hands on her hips. “Sonic wanted to wait for the cute couples get in free promotion to get started again! After all, why pay for tickets when we can just walk in hand-in-hand and have a fantastic time for free?! That’s called sound economics.”

“It sounds like bull-”

“Knuckles!” Tails quickly cut off the guardian before he could finish his thought, then he directed his attention back to Amy, who seemed none too impressed with their reactions if her expression was anything to go by. “Amy, don’t you think that something’s a little…off…with Sonic?”

“No, why would I?”

“Because he’s suddenly all over you and can’t stop staring at you when before he actively ran away from you.” Knuckles blunt statement was responded to with an angry glare from the pink hedgehog. “You can glare all you want, you can’t tell me you aren’t even curious as to why Sonic’s pretty much started letting his hormones do all of his thinking for him.”

“Did it ever occur to you that maybe Sonic’s finally just realized that he cares for me?” Amy stomped forward with her hammer suddenly in hand, causing the echidna to back away a few steps. “Or am I so ugly that Sonic would have to completely lose his mind to think that I’m anything more than a nuisance?”

“N-No one’s calling you ugly or a nuisance Amy!” Tails gulped when she suddenly rounded on him. “All we’re saying is that…it does seem a little bit sudden, you can at least admit that much can’t you?”

Amy sighed and took a moment to regain her composure. “Ok, I know you wouldn’t ask unless you were legitimately worried, I appreciate that Tails,” her hammer disappeared. “But there’s really nothing wrong with Sonic! I mean, come on, no one knows him better than I do, I’d be able to tell.” she gently placed her hand on the fox boy’s shoulder. “Now come on, we’re all going to Twinkle Park tonight! If you want, I’ll even call Vanilla for you so Cream can come with us.”

“And what about me?”

Amy turned her head to look at Knuckles, who was crossing his arms with a scowl. “Well, if you wanna find Rouge and ask her to come, all you gotta do is leave the Master Emerald alone for a little longer.” she smirked at the low growl the echidna gave. “You know it would work.”

“That’s what bothers me.” Knuckles uncrossed his arms and walked past both Tails and Amy as he headed to the door. “What time are we meeting up?”

The pink hedgehog tapped her chin for a moment in thought. “I think five ‘o'clock should give us enough time to go around the park, sound good to you?”

“Wouldn’t matter what time you chose, I would’ve come anyway.” Knuckles walked out and grabbed hold of the door before he stopped. “After hearing all this from you, I’m starting to think maybe I was wrong and there really is something wrong with Sonic.” With that, the echidna slammed the door shut.

“Do me a favor and don’t come!” Amy growled before she looked over at Tails. “And you? Are you still convinced that Sonic is suddenly a huge jerk and this is all some elaborate prank or something?”

Tails slowly shook his head. “I don’t know what to think Amy…” he looked up at her. “Honestly, I’d like to believe this is all real and Sonic’s finally starting to come around to how he really feels about you, I want you to be happy!”

“Then trust me on this!” she put both hands on his shoulders and looked the fox boy in the eyes. “I’m happier than I’ve ever been in my whole life, and it’s all because of Sonic! I’ve learned to tell when he’s just putting on a show, and this is all real! He really loves me!”

The young genius relinquished a smile. “Ok Amy, if you say so.”

“Good.” Amy nodded and smiled as well. “So, how’s about I make that phone call? There’s a cute little rabbit girl who I have a sneaking suspicion is starting to crush on you, and I bet she’d love to hang out with us tonight.”

As soon as the clock struck five, the entire gang got together and met at the entrance of Twinkle Park in Station Square. Amy had indeed convinced Vanilla to allow Cream to join them, and Knuckles had decided to come alone, although he seemed incredibly guarded. “Lighten up Knucklehead, we’re here to have fun, and no one likes a grouch when there’s a party goin’ on.”

Knuckles shrugged off the blue hedgehog’s hand and growled lowly. “Let’s just get in there.”

Sonic just shrugged and went over to put his arm around Amy. “Suit yourself pal, hope you brought some money with ya, since ya don’t get to take advantage of the cute couples get in free perk.” He led the pink hedgehog over to the entrance and stood on the platform, and then he turned his attention to his friends. “Cute couple number two, come on down!”

Both Tails and Cream’s cheeks turned pink, but they did walk in together as the platform went up, leaving Knuckles alone by himself until the platform returned. “I’m not a grouch.” he grumbled.

Knuckles did have to pay to get in, but eventually they did meet back up and they soon started going around the park and partaking in all that it had to offer. Rollercoasters, thrill rides, a ride (or three) through the Tunnel of Love, and of course the never-ending variety of greasy fair food. 

Sonic had tried to get Knuckles to take a bite of the funnel cake he’d gotten for himself and Amy, but the echidna just glared at him in response. “Boy Knux, you’re really makin’ a case for jerk of the year, why’d ya even come if ya didn’t wanna be here?”

“I have my reasons.”

“Don’t even pay any attention to him Sonikku,” Amy said all too sweetly. “He’s just jealous that he’s all alone while we’re all here on a double date.”

“But Mr. Knuckles,” Cream spoke up. “You could have gotten Miss Rouge to come with us right? Then you wouldn’t have been so lonely!”

“That’s got nothing to do with it!” Knuckles rounded on his younger companions and scowled viciously, his fists clenched in barely contained rage. “The only reason I’m here is to protect you three from getting hurt!”

Sonic scoffed. “Get hurt? From what? Eating too much junk food?”

“How 'bout from you wise guy?” Knuckles got up in the hedgehog’s face, and Sonic’s cocky grin immediately vanished. “I’ve been watching you all night, and at first I was willing to give you the benefit of the doubt, but now I know for a fact that you’re not yourself, if you’re even Sonic at all.”

“Oh yeah? And what makes you think I’m not the genuine article?”

“Because there’s no way the real Sonic would ever be so openly affectionate, he doesn’t have the guts!”

“Knuckles, go home!” Amy leaped up from her seat and gave the guardian a murderous glare. “I’d say I can’t believe you would stoop so low, but then I remember it’s you! Go back and protect your stupid rock, we do not require your services!” The pink hedgehog tugged on Sonic’s arm and started leading him away. “Come on Sonic, let’s go on the ferris wheel together, I’ve lost my appetite.”

“Me too Ames.”

The couple left in a huff, and Knuckles narrowed his eyes as he stared at the backs of the two retreating figures, and his eyes widened when he saw Sonic smirk at him over his shoulder. “Tails, we need to follow them.”

“Knuckles, I-”

“Just do it!”

Inside one of the ferris wheel gondolas, a blue and pink hedgehog were sitting alone, leaning against each other. The old machine had been empty until their arrival, but the old dog who ran it was more than happy to give the couple some free rides to collect their thoughts. “'Tis a great place to have a heart to heart.” he’d said.

And that was what Amy was doing, as she poured out her heart to her new boyfriend. “I can’t believe Knuckles would accuse you of faking all this…I mean, is it really so unbelievable? Am I really that terrible of a person that it’s impossible to buy that you care for me?”

“Nah Ames, Knux is just paranoid, maybe he’s just tryin’ to overcompensate for all the times Dr. Robotnik tricked him.”

The pink hedgehog raised an eyebrow at that and smirked. “Dr. Robotnik? No crazy quips or references to his looking like a giant walking egg?”

Sonic shrugged. “Why state the obvious?”

“I dunno,” Amy also shrugged. “It’s just that it’s never stopped you before, kinda weird to actually hear his actual name again after all this time.”

“Yeah well, that’s not important anyway.” Sonic turned and took Amy’s hands in his. “What’s important is us, and I gotta say Ames, these past few days have been the greatest days of my life…it’s really too bad that it’s gonna be all over soon.”

“Well, what makes you say that?” Before Sonic could answer however, Tails appeared out of nowhere and slammed his feet into the back of Sonic’s head before scooping Amy into his arms. “Tails, put me down! Have you lost your mind?!”

“Now Knuckles!”

Knuckles got a running start and reeled his fist back, and as soon as he was in range, he unloaded a vicious punch that obliterated the old metal keeping the ferris wheel standing, and it all came crashing down as sparks flew from the malfunctioning machinery, with Sonic crashing down along with all the debris.

“Sonic!” Amy turned and pulled out her hammer, her teeth gritted and her eyes brimming with tears. “You’re both insane, do you have any idea what you just did?!” But suddenly from the smoldering flames that were now lighting up the night sky with yellows and oranges, a figure emerged from the wreckage, one whose silhouette was easily recognizable. “Sonikku! You’re alive!”

But then the dust settled, and Amy’s cries of joy turned into a fear-filled shriek as her eyes beheld a sight that she never would’ve dreamed of in her worst nightmares.

Instead of blood coming from the blue hedgehog’s wounds…there was nothing but metal and wire. “I was really hoping it wouldn’t have to be this way…” the creature’s head lifted, and while one side of its revealed the unmistakably emerald green eye of Mobius’ greatest hero, the other side showed nothing but darkness, and an angry red iris with a yellow pupil. “But thanks to Knuckles, now I have to do this the hard way.”

xxxxxxxxx(End Flashback)xxxxxxxxx

I was a fool, Knuckles was right all along. Sonic wasn’t acting like himself because he wasn’t himself. He’d been replaced by this…twisted perversion of him, made of nothing but iron and circuitry…but it was so real, a small part of me still couldn’t let the thought that this was Sonic go.

But as I watched this incredibly realistic version of Metal Sonic engage in a fight to the death with the weakening Knuckles, I knew I couldn’t let myself suspend my disbelief any longer. I had to help, somehow. 

Tails had already been knocked out, only seconds after he’d told Cream to fly away and get help. Given the circumstances though, I didn’t think help would arrive in time. It was time to step up.

I grabbed my hammer and rushed forward with it held over my head, and I slammed it down on Metal Sonic’s head, sending him to the ground for a moment so Knuckles could unleash an uppercut that sent him flying into the distance. “Knuckles, I am so sorry.”

He gave me a grim smile in return, he was rubbing his fist and I could see the blood starting to leak through the fabric of his glove, as well as the blood coming from his chest and the side of his mouth from wounds shaped like claw marks. “I’ve dealt with worse.” The next thing I knew I was on the ground as Knuckles shoved me out of the way, and then I heard a sickening thump, followed by a dull thud. When I turned around, I saw Knuckles on the ground, unconscious, with Metal Sonic standing over him with a frown.

“You stay away from me!” I raised my hammer in defense.

“I wish I could Ames.”

My eyes widened and I felt my heart start to beat faster than it ever had before as a lump formed in my throat. Although the voice was synthetic, the way he’d spoken wasn’t at all like something Metal Sonic would say…it was something that…Sonic would say. “Who are you? Are you Metal Sonic?”

The blue robot - or hedgehog, I was so confused I didn’t know what to call it - took another step towards me, and I took a step back to keep the distance. “You’d think so wouldn’t you?” he replied as he continued to approach. “But the truth is, I’m way better than any of those pathetic rip-offs, even before I became like this.”

I felt my heart shatter, and I couldn’t hold back my tears any longer. “Sonic…” I choked.

“In the flesh, so to speak.” Sonic stopped to gesture at himself. “Pretty impressive huh? Dr. Robotnik managed to perfect his roboticization technique, he found me a few days ago and used it on me first. Now I’ve got a new goal, and that’s to take you guys out…first I had to get closer to you to gain your trust…although I gotta say, I’m not really likin’ this next part.”

“Then don’t do it! Sonic, you don’t have to listen to Eggman! If he managed to turn you into a robot and make you so convincing that even I couldn’t tell the difference, then that means despite all that programming he gave you, the real you is still in there! Trapped in that machine!”

For a moment, Sonic seemed to slouch a bit. “I don’t wanna kill you guys,” But then he looked back up and glared at me. “But I have no choice, my mission is to destroy you guys, and I’m gonna do it!” He charged towards me at full speed, and I barely reacted fast enough to get my hammer up and stop him from running me through with his exposed razor-sharp claw. “Hold still Amy, just make it quick!”

“No!” I swung my hammer and knocked him back a few feet, and then I jumped back and put more distance between us. “I know you’re in there Sonic, fight it! If a robot like Gamma could reject his programming, then I have no doubt you can! You’re too strong to just let Eggman control you!”

“Shut up!” Sonic charged again, but this time he was much slower and his movements were sloppier, and I was able to sidestep his attack and let him run past me and into the tilt-a-whirl. “Why can’t you make this easy?”

I found it in me to smile despite the circumstances. “You’re fighting it, I can tell. Don’t give up Sonic, I know you can beat him!” But then his robot eye seemed to glow brighter, and he sent a vicious glare that caused my blood to run cold. “Uh oh.” Only a second later, I found myself being raised in the air by the throat, as a robotic claw squeezed my throat.

“Just…just stop fighting me, ok Ames? Don’t make this harder than it has to be!”

His voice was desperate, and even with his robot hand around my throat, I could feel that his grip was wavering. I could still breathe. “No Sonic, I won’t give up and I won’t let you give up…I love you too much to do that.”

“Amy…I…I…” I saw his eyes soften, even his robotic eye looked pitiful now, and he dropped me to the ground and grabbed his head, screaming at the top of his lungs. “This is so wrong! I’m not a killing machine! I’m not some messed up terminator! I am Sonic the Hedgehog!”

“That’s right, you are.” I raised my hammer over my head. “And now I’m gonna set you free.” I jumped up and shouted a battle cry even with tears pouring out of my eyes, and my hammer came crashing down on Sonic’s head, crushing his metal skull. After landing, I made my hammer disappear and watched as Sonic’s robot eye faded away, signaling that he had been…killed? Destroyed? What even was he anymore? “I’m so sorry Sonic,” I whispered to the unmoving form. “We’ll get you fixed up and back to normal, I promise.”

When I looked back up after wiping my eyes with my arm, I saw Knuckles and Tails limping over to me, their bodies bruised and bleeding from the intensity of the battle. “Are you ok Amy?” Tails asked me even as he held his arm.

“It was him…it was Sonic…Eggman turned him into this…thing.”

Tails knelt down and examined Sonic’s robot body, and he looked up at me with a small smile. “I can probably fix him, the roboticization process still shows signs of using the same basic principles, just much more refined…” Then he frowned. “But…”

“But what?” Knuckles asked.

“I can fix Sonic and even de-roboticize him after…but…I hate to think how he’s going to be after it’s all over…”

I frowned and looked down at the broken body of what used to be my one true love. Knuckles seemed confused as to what Tails meant, but I knew. Would Sonic ever be the same again? 

Even after Tails put him back together and turned him back into flesh and blood…Sonic was one with the wind, a free spirit who could never be caged in…now not only had he been caged in, but he’d been turned against the ones he loved, and he’d witnessed firsthand the damage he caused.

As strong as Sonic was, I knew he wasn’t invincible. Even he had his breaking points, and I sincerely feared that this experience would be what drove Sonic past his. But I knew that if it did, I would make sure to be there for him every step of the way on his road to recovery. 

There was one thing I could tell about Sonic during the past three days, and that was he truly enjoyed being with me, even while he was roboticized. Maybe that was what kept him from giving in to the programming for so long.

It wouldn’t be easy, that much I knew for sure. For Sonic, being controlled like this was probably the most traumatic event he could ever experience, and it would be a while before he turned back into his true self. 

But he would, I also knew that. His strength and determination would make sure he eventually comes to terms with it, and I would be there every step of the way. I vowed then and there to myself, that I would personally make sure he would never know what it was like to be trapped in this machine again.

Can we talk about how Sonic runs away from Amy to the one place in the city where couples can get in for free, fully knowing that Amy is very likely to follow him

because I would really like to talk about that
