: "No...it...this...just...no, No, NO! NO! This can't be happening! This DIDN'T HAPPEN! I couldn't have failed! I can't fail! I'm a hero! I'm Sonic the FUCKING Hedgehog! I'm the fastest thing alive! I couldn't have been to slow!"
"I couldn't have failed her...I couldn't have let Sally die...this has to be some long terrible nightmare and when I wake up I'll find Sal sleeping next to me, or on me peacefully and I'll wake her up with the biggest, most bone crushing hug she'll ever get and a big sappy kiss to apologize for the broken ribs..."
But I knew that this wasn't a dream...I knew that I wouldn't wake up to see her alive and well...I knew I would never see that gorgeous smile on her face again, hear her laugh after I did something silly, feel her hug me tightly after a hard battle, rub my hands through her rich saffron hair, or smack me upside the head for being stupid and reckless again.
I knew I would never see the only girl I ever truly loved open those beautiful sapphire eyes again. And my last memory of her would be of her lying on the ground in a bloody heap.
Why did I let run off on her own? Why didn't I go with her? Why did it have to be her and not me?
I wouldn't say that, there are plenty of writers I think are better than me, like Anthurak the Chaos Lord with his Naruto fics, npberryhill with his/their DBZ fics, and Nave Ninja with his fallout fics, just to name a few.
You certainly have a knack for making dramatic art, love the details...Though this reminds me of the whole "robotized sally" arc that's going on...F***ing Eggman and his obsession with world domination, go back and get your teaching degree ya fat sonofabitch! *ahem* Sorry...Kinda went over the top on that one...
Wake up, Sonic! You failed all of us! Does the past 20 years ring any sort of bell? You gave us crappy game after crappy game, adding layers upon layers of gameplay mechanics that took away from your core gameplay, and ADDED GOD-AWLFUL CHARACTERS THAT HAVE LITTLE IF ANY REDEEMING VALUE WHATSOEVER. Sonic, I hate to say it but...we're all better off without you. You've failed us time after time and we're not gonna be hurt by you any more. This is goodbye from now on. Maybe when I see you running around at the speed sound I'll say hi, but it's over. This is it, goodbye.
