Another short thread before the coming storm. Let’s start with a short comic that seems to serve as a transition of sorts into Sonic Boom. Originally the dialog was in Spanish but a helpful anon translated it for us. This is Hora de Cambiar aka Time to Change! Also, stick around to the end of the storytime for the newest page of my comic!
Also, last thread had an update for Shock and Awe. Check the OP of the last thread for posts replying to it.
>>134105679 Let's gooooooooo! >>134105702 I'd think Rouge would've been a bit more tactful than that, even if it is true >>134105750 >Nothing will beat Knuckles' broken jumping and pausing tactic. lmao, that's why I never updated the game
>>134105782 This is horribly OOC for Knuckles. He's a feminist. >>134105771 >I'd think Rouge would've been a bit more tactful than that, even if it is true Just a little character assassination, Stan. >>134105780 OOOOOO
>>134105798 And that's how Amy got her groove back. Don't ask about things like where's the Master Emerald and why everyone decided to permanently relocate to an island filled with psychopaths. Moving on...
>>134105769 Look at the back definition on Knuckles! >>134105798 >Just a little character assassination, Stan. I guess they needed a reason for why she wasn't in Boom >>134105812 Wow, was not expecting a conclusion! >>134105844 >an artist that likes Sonic and Metal Sonic a lot Wait a minute, this isn't theEnigmaMachine! Seriously though, they should be on the list now that they've undeleted their deviantart: https://www.deviantart.com/theenigmamachine
>>134105934 Shard's such a supportive brother! >>134105941 Oh-ho-ho, looks like you were too slow! >>134105948 It's weird how consistently chilidogs are treated as birthday cakes in this franchise >>134105968 Definitely the most horrifying image in The Ride so far. I don't care if they're allegedly comfortable, they're hideous!
>>134105679 LET'S GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! I'm so happy you used my translation!
>>134105798 Lol yeah that was so weird. Amy's pretty bossy in this comic but at least she didn't threaten to beat the shit out of someone. In retrospective it's so funny this was the author's assumption of Boom!Knuckles' personality, considering he ended up being a mellow and canonically feminist fella.
>>134106037 That'd be fun, we don't really get to see the other Metals much >>134106084 I'm still mad! >>134106109 Cats are the best! Shadow should canonically have one, or a chao at least >>134106125 lmao >>134106148 They certainly have their own way of flirting! >>134106151 Thanks for all your hard work translatorbro! >>134106165 I like that Shadow's on team G.U.N., please don't bully me Iizuka! >>134106208 >a little gay No one with hair that pretty could be completely straight! >>134106225 Best bros! >>134106227 Yeah, I don't actually like it. Although the idea Gerald and Doom tried everything scientifically to get it to work but had to resort to the old fashioned way is pretty funny
>>134106255 And we end the night with modern Sonic bullying classic Sonic. Tomorrow at 9pm EST we're going to be doing a lot of shipping comics because I'm low on stuff to post and need to find more. But before I call it a night...
>>134106244 And Infinite was probably responsible (in a non-lewd way) >>134106245 Makes sense, the ultimate lifeform wouldn't be restricted to a single sex >>134106255 Poor ghost lady. I wouldn't mind seeing her in other Sonic media >>134106276 Love the lineart in this >>134106310 It's finally here! I do like that Sonic's still got his canonical race car bed >>134106331 Liz is still looking pretty cute
>>134106386 I thought you were keeping all the feet pics for patrons! And here I was about to lord it over the non-feet pic having plebs! Seriously though, I don't mind >>134106409 It's the creepy expression and what that apron might cover that weirds me out
>>134106324 Definitely a bad habit. He should fix that. >>134106341 >Also, nice to see a non-asshole Max. Poor Ian, shackled by continuity and forced (probably by himself) to keep that going in the Archie comics. >>134106416 Joke's on you, Hamlin... you don't exist. >>134106433 I gotta throw a bone to the loyal passengers of The Ride.
>>134108607 Not many comics, but there are a couple fanfics though names escape me for some. A few of them are "Metal Sonic is Sonic roboticized" though, and at least one of the series I was following just got entirely deleted by the creator at random one day.
>>134108573 You snooze you lose! >>134108709 That's a good point, I'd be willing to share if Scourge was on offer! >>134108607 I can't think of any either, apart from pre-Scourge Anti Sonic or ones where Sonic's possessed by something evil (Fleetway Super, Mephiles, a demon). There's always our schizo paragon IDWnic! >>134108617 >just got entirely deleted by the creator at random one day If you've got a name I could take a look, DeviantArt doesn't always properly delete things
>>134108882 >>134108886 For the deleted one, it was a series of stories under the general title "beware of your mind as it proves you wrong", but not only did the author (gayemeralds) delete it and every connected story, they also nuked their account and every other story contained on there.
The best story with a sort of antagonistic asshole version of Sonic/Metal Sonic under this same theory though is probably "a feel of discontent (i'm finally facing it all)" by Strange Shards. Hasn't updated in a whole though. It's also a Sonic X and Archie merger
Translations for the DBZ comic are coming along, got a bit sidetracked with IRL stuff but I'm back on it and I will hopefully finish them soon. In the meantime, have this drawing that I was finnally able to finish. I swear one day I'll make my own comic
>>134109488 No, and it's seriously fucking up my ability to add comics to the website. When was the last time a comic was updated, and does the artist plan to continue? Fuck if I know now! > Let's gobble up everyone's art for AI bullshit, surely our users won't get mad at us. It's not like artists are notoriously touchy about art theft. I am legitimately mad at their retarded decision
>>134109995 >tumblr >twitter >deviantart Everything's fucking up and Newgrounds is barely used for Sonic fan comics. Tumblr seems to do better these days, bouncing back a bit after losing porn and only allowing nudity at this point. If only FA wasn't 99% fetishes.
>>134110022 It's all so tiresome. I just want to archive and catalogue Sonic fancomics before the internet completely dies and becomes cable tv >>134110060 There's always gallery-dl, but that only works once you've found a promising account
>>134110639 I couldn't resist! >>134110671 I remember the old version of this one, it's really improved! Shame there isn't more on their DA, I guess they deleted most of it. >>134110732 Cool, best of luck with it! I'm still working up the courage to finally write down my own fancomic. It's a lore-heavy retelling of the classic and adventure games, but the main focus will be Sonic Adventure 1 through 3 (where 3 is a heavily rewritten Heroes). Surprisingly it won't be lewd!
>>134110022 That's what happens when almost all of these are headed by soulless organizations who don't know the first fucking thing about being human. DA thought it was too big to fail like Tumblr before it, and now it's fucking dying.
>>134111612 No worries, it's one of the first Sonic themed doujins from Japan. The author really didn't want "the English" to get their hands on it and wrote a whole bunch of angry emails to sites that hosted its translation. On a more personal note the story where Sonic and Amy go to town on Tails probably awakened something in shota-me way back when. >>134111621 It's definitely Japanese
>>134111961 Weirdly the original Japanese is left to right as well. Sally featuring in most of them is also pretty odd considering she was pretty much unknown over in Japan at the time. Sonic Cult used to have the letters she sent them, they were pretty funny
>>134112720 >You already warned us of this, so I'm not surprised. But that was before this recent haul. Oh Amy, if you didn't exist then half of these comics wouldn't exist. And we'd just be stuck with Sonadow shipping comics. I don't know if that's better or worse.
>>134112765 Most Sonadow comics I've seen manage to fail at having very interesting or unique hooks, barring the handful of exceptions we've done in these threads. And the best we've done have always been the borderline/outright porn ones.
>>134112765 >Oh Amy, if you didn't exist then half of these comics wouldn't exist. We need Silver to help us with a timely drive by on the real Iblis trigger. >And we'd just be stuck with Sonadow shipping comics. I don't know if that's better or worse. Much like fat Sally, the Conductor has been seduced by another forbidden fetish, the pink hog. For shame. *shakes head* For shame.
>>134117547 >Amyfags in /sthg/ literally screeching that she's not the same as the psycho who threatened to beat Sonic to death in Battle and Sonic X if he didn't marry her >literally getting pissed because she's more like her Boom self >even got pissed over the Twitter Takeover, despite her admitting that she loves him there because "she took it back reeee" >had a meltdown a few days ago over the fact that she's not constantly slobbering over Sonic's dick now ...You're not wrong.
>>134117547 >>134117609 I'm probably one of the few people who is fine with Sonic being the one expressing his affection more than Amy. We had over a decade of Amy chasing Sonic and it damaged her charwcter almost beyond repair. Letting her calm down and be a more reasonable and wholesome kind of love, whilst Sonic tries to pursue her instead is a better dynamic overall.
>>134117609 >>134117560 >>134117657 I mean, think about it, it's been literal decades of scraping for any form of affection between the two, to the point that a touch on the waist is being held up as the holy SonAmy grail. That is definitely not a healthy place for any fan to be and it's no surprise it has bred a certain level of insanity.
>>134117683 >it's been literal decades of scraping for any form of affection between the two, to the point that a touch on the waist is being held up as the holy SonAmy grail. The waist touch and hug is good (reminder that Sonic literally ran from Amy hugging him in all media up until Frontiers), but most people point to the lines in pic related when it comes to Sonamy stuff from Frontiers. And the Twitter Takeover had him not running away or panicking (like he did in every other Takeover when Amy and her love for him got brought up) when Amy admitted her love for him, he even complimented her.
The real insanity is coming from Amyfags who HATE this development - for them, it was never about Amy and Sonic getting together, it was always about the endless chase and blueballing. They want Amy to have her "expressive personality" and this means being a psycho stalker willing to harm Sonic to get him to stay with her. Her being less blatant about her love and Sonic being the one pining for HER is the exact opposite of what they've come to want.
>>134117757 Aren't those lines Western-exclusive? And these are the people who have lived and died by SoJ canon because it eliminates all of Sonic's other love interests. Talk about being hoisted by your own petard.
>>134117683 >>134117757 There's probably also a fair amount of people projecting their fanfics onto Amy - "she's moved on from Sonic now because she's leaving on a journey of self-dsicovery (which opens her up for me to ship her with X character/[insert self-insert OC here]". It's not about actually discussing what Frontiers shows or even Sonamy, it's about starting shit and getting attention by trying to push Amy away from Sonic and insist that she's "over him" (which makes no sense and would be THE thing to destroy her character if it ever happened).
>>134117818 >Aren't those lines Western-exclusive? Somebody would have to check the files in the Japanese version to be sure, but the Japanese script tends to keep anything that isn't a major cutscene intact from the English script. Only the major cutscenes have referenced to other games or expressions of compassion and warmth between the cast scrubbed out or replaced with schizo rants.
>>134117899 The lines are still in the game. You just need to wait hours in specific spots and mess with your settings to trigger them
>IDWkun Stop using this term for people who are discussing shit. IDWkun is a very specific brand of schizo and he has NEVER made long posts that aren't him spamming one line shitposts until the thread dies or he gets banned.
>>134117757 Now we just need to wait for a mod that replaces all mentions of Amy with Shadow >>134117869 >Only the major cutscenes have referenced to other games or expressions of compassion and warmth between the cast scrubbed out or replaced with schizo rants. It's fascinating that Flynn's biggest accomplishment writing this script isn't repairing over a decade of Tails and Knuckles' character assassination, but mindbreaking SoJ. >>134117956 That wasn't me, but I agree completely with it! >>134118234 And that's why he's best boy! >lmao fuck Sonic Team I have no idea why they work so hard at sucking the fun out of western Sonic media
>>134118551 I wouldn’t mind seeing a young Rouge messing around with the Sonic gang back during the classic era. She would still be the oldest kid of the group, something she would lord over Knuckles with.
>>134118644 At the very least, you get some lines during Rhea of him slowly losing his mind and identity. But you need to sit and wait an hour or more to even hear them because their chance of triggering is nearly 0.
>>134117899 That's not IDWkun behavior. IDWkun would be posting non-sequiturs instead of actually trying to have a discussion.
And that anon's completely right, it's fucking insane how many Amy fans are frothing at the mouth over her winning and Sonamy finally being canon. The butchering Sonic and Amy's relationship received in the 2000's has only barely begun to be acknowledged by both SEGA and fans for being a disservice to the two.
>>134119069 I literally saw one of them claim that it's "character assassination" for Amy to NOT be a total psycho who pushes Sonic away from her with how unhinged she is. Or for Sonic to actually return her affection.
It's maddening how much Sonic X has ruined Amy's perception amongst fans, to the point there are people who unironically celebrate the butchery of Sonic and Amy.
>>134119178 Most ships in the franchise have less than what Frontiers gives Sonamy. Fucking Knuxouge is basically entirely founded on Rouge being flirty with him than anything else.
>>134119153 Archie Sonic and any setting with a large number of humans or ones with unique abilities, like BNHA or Pokemon. The vast, vast majority of Mobians hate the shit out of Overlanders/humans, so you could justify a lot of weirdness in settings like those.
One artist alone has enough shipping comics to last a week but I might just break up the larger stories so we don't do them all at once. Still, this one story is enough for three threads. Thankfully I have non-shipping comics as well. I guess it depends on how this story is received.
>>134119153 The same as the Jak & Daxter "crossover". There's not much you can really do unless you redesign one to fit the other's gameplay, e.g. >Sonic's slower but all the corridors are tubes and Sonic acts like he's wearing magna boots so he can spindash around and around >Ratchet's charge boots are no longer shit but all his weapons are melee and the groovitron follows him around like Mr. Zurkon (also Mr. Zurkon died on his way to his home planet because I hate him)
>>134119335 >One artist alone has enough shipping comics to last a week but I might just break up the larger stories so we don't do them all at once. Still, this one story is enough for three threads. The Shipping is eternal!
>>134119153 >>134119321 I also think Archie merged with a straight up horror setting could work wonders. Something like Junji Ito or Control. Both to still play on the "Overlanders reeeeeeeeee" mentality of the average Mobian, whilst also adding in OCP's that they can't readily address but that the humans/Overlanders ironically know more about.
Also because I just kind of want Scourge, Finitevus, or Mogul to fuck with something they shouldn't have and cause shenanigans.
>>134119377 We already did that twice and in case you didn't notice, shipping is what the people want. There's still plenty of non-shipping stuff but it's the absolute minority compared to the Sonamy/Shadamy content. So the best thing is to do a bunch of shipping stuff, do non-shipping stuff, and then more shipping stuff.
>>134119540 Reasonable monarch and strategist, but is bogged down by her father's madness and frothing hatred and the stress of maintaining the kingdom. Absolutely should not be on the frontlines during a fight.
>>134119540 From what I've read on the Sonic wiki; a good person. He father is nuts (no pun intended.) Plus 'I'm not a furry, but' she's kind of attractive, based on what style she's depicted. (IE: SatAM is cute, late Archie version--pre reboot--is hot, etc).
>>134119699 Most of the current crop have literally only lived with their parents or other adults saying that Overlanders are monsters seeking their resources and who desire only to exterminate them all (which, surprisingly, they aren't wrong). And the majority of the adults are old enough to recall the Great War and its events. So pretty fucking racist.
>>134119406 I might chop up the video into comic format so we can storytime issue 15 >>134119412 It is a good excuse to dress him up in cute outfits! >>134119429 I've never seen him care about anything other than getting mad about Archie, I don't even know if he likes IDW >>134119425 >shipping is what the people want People love to complain, but the shipping threads do get more engagement >>134119467 He does! >>134119540 Hot brother >>134119566 I really should get around to playing those games, Ratchet's pretty handsome
>>134119795 >best match for SONIKKU-KUN. Anon I have nothing against Sonally or its fans (I'm one of the first to say that I want to see Manik again), but even I know that the ship was rife with explosive melodrama. And the Slap worsened it so much.
>>134119834 >And the Slap worsened it so much. All these years later and that one editor earned their paycheck in creating drama. And none of Sonic's other relationships in Archie were free from drama.
>>134119735 >I've never seen him care about anything other than getting mad about Archie, I don't even know if he likes IDW IDWkuns are almost always different people (except for that one guy that keeps ban evading), they've got slight differences but the general rotten attitude is the same. I've seen a couple kuns who flipped from hating on Archie to inexplicably loving it in favor of shitting on IDW.
Speaking of, just read the IDW storytime thread, shitshow as always!
>>134119952 >Speaking of, just read the IDW storytime thread, shitshow as always! It's amazing how consistently awful they are. Literally only the Ride IDW threads were somewhat decent, and they tended to turn to shit almost as often.
>>134119834 >Anon I have nothing against Sonally or its fans (I'm one of the first to say that I want to see Manik again), but even I know that the ship was rife with explosive melodrama. Like stalking him and threatening to kill him with a hammer if he won't marry her? Or just more standard dumb teenager drama?
