Dissecting a Hedgehog
Dissecting a Hedgehog: An in-depth analysis of Sonic the Hedgehog
Starting in 1991 and going until 1994, Sonic the Hedgehog dazzled audiences with high-speed high-action antics the likes no other videogame hero can provide or has provided since. With each game, Sonic's adventures grew longer, the levels grew more complex, and the graphics got more detailed. But, after 1994, Sonic the Hedgehog all but vanished from the face of gaming -- a character who was king, beating out rivals like Mario in popularity polls and putting countless copycats to shame, began a downward tailspin into the depths of obscurity. The scarce few games that were released bearing the Sonic name that were not, infact Sonic games; instead they were other genres, other games altogether with the Sonic name and characters transplanted in to them.
In 1998, as Sega transitioned out of their 32bit console, the Sega Saturn, they revealed a new console - the Sega Dreamcast, and with it, a brand new Sonic game slated

"I'm working on this little contraption. You see, when I was only 8 years old, I used a chaos to transform me into 12 years of age, remember Cream?"
Cream nodded, trying to remeber way back then. She wasn't around at that time, but remeberd hearing it from tails.
"I became a freedom fighter and I was really excited. The thing was, I never had any special skills. I was always the one to, well, I was a backround peice... I never had any fighting abilities or experiences. And now, being only 12, I still do not have anything special about me, just a dumb piko-piko hammer..."
"Oh Amy, your special to me. Your our friend, its not like we hate you."
"Like Sonic..." mumbled Amy.
"What was that?" asked Cream.
"Oh, nothing.." she heaved.
"So, tell me about this um, contraption thingy."
"Well, Im assuming, if I find enough energy source, that this thing will allow a two year future to surpass. Making me 14 years old! I can then
Sonadow-Strict Love-P25It's been 6 months now and of course I've gotten bigger. I haven't been going to school for a while now but Mr Hedge has been continuing with my school work with me at home. I'm also back living at his house after a short stay at my moms, because she didn't want to keep us apart constantly at an important time.Sonadow-Strict Love-P254 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
Mr Hedge doesn't teach at our school anymore, but he's taken a course to become a full time proper teacher, and hasn't decided which school is his first choice to teach at.
Of course when Flick and GiGi found out they were seriously surprised but all kawii over the whole idea. They have been coming over to visit a lot more now as well, which is good because I can't see them at school now.
I was sitting at my desk on my laptop doing some work Mr Hedge had set for me to do while he was away at his course for a few hours. But it was so distressing.
"Uhhhhh, so many questions I don't even go to school and yet I'm still swamped with school work!" I set my head down on the desk a

I stood where I was, as I looked at her scornfully, but quickly put my head down.
"Oh dear sonic are you alright? You're crying, I didn't bump into you that hard did i?" she asked worriedly.
"I'm just fine, it has nothing to do with you," I spoke.
She stepped closer and patted my shoulder. I looked up and she then reached into her pocket and took out a fancy cotton handkerchief and wiped away my tears. I was surprised.
"What happened? Did you hurt yourself? You've got a skateboard did you fall off it?"
I blinked. She was so caring, and worried about me. But why? I have hardly had any contact with her and hate her soul and yet she wants to help me out.
"Why are you doing this " I said to her suspiciously.
"Because I care of course. I didn't really get to meet you properly; you must have had something important to do with how quickly you ran out. Shadow does talk about you from time to time you know."
"Yes, well Mr Hedge to you."
Shadow. Hmm I liked the sound of that. Talk

Just before I left for school I looked at the calendar in the kitchen and today was the 14th. Tomorrow would be the 15th the circled day on the calendar. But what's happening then? I just shrugged and picked up my bag leaving for school.
Mr Hedge wasn't going to come in till second period, I found that a little weird, but first period was study so it's not like he's needed but wonder what he's doing. Eh probably just forgot to print out some stuff for class or something.
It was strange at break time and lunch time when Flick had passed by the classroom and once he did so Mr Hedge would perk up and grab some sheets and run out after him. What is it they were talking about? Hey then again I just realised Flick kind of has been avoiding me. Suspicious acting has started up again and I don't like it. As anyone would if they wouldn't know what's going on ar

I eventually reached the 3rd block, drenched by the rain of course, and walked up the steps to a random house to ask if they knew where Mr Hedge lived. I knocked on the door and waited, catching my breath.
After a few moments the door finally opened. I wasn't able to look at the person as I had one hand on the wall, bent over, still catching my breath, so I talked to them staring at the ground.
"Sorry to bother you but would you happen to know where Mr Hedge lives?"
There was a moment of silence, so I looked up to see what the problem was.
IT WAS MR HEDGE!!!!!!!!!!!
"AH!" I yelped in surprise standing back. "Ha ha what were the odds of actually coming to this one..."
"Sonic? What are you doing here?" he asked.
You know I was asking myself the same thing I said in my head.
"You're completely soaked. You better come in and get dried off," he said stepping aside.
I started blushing, and quickly walked in before he noticed. I looked around and was shocked.

Story Reimagining: Shadow
Shadow the Hedgehog had been wandering the world for some time with only scattered memories of being trained to speak by a young girl while he was in prison. The reason for his imprisonment he's unsure of, but he does know someone the girl (he's forgotten her name) saved him from a terrible fate and taught he fairness, kindness, and the value of beauty through her artwork. This seems in direct contrast to his natural inclination and skill at using firearms and fighting, something his body is conditioned and trained to do.
His final most vivid memory is the name she gave him. Shadow.
Interested in recovering his past but also hesitant to do for fear of what dark secrets lurk in the fog of amnesia he has been traveling quietly and stealthily across the country, pursued by mysterious red robots as well as the forces of a militant private military called The Guardian Unit of Nations (G.U.N) who sees him as a threat. Earlier his frustration at being denied answers

Sonic was walking down the old street down to his new High School. He dragged his feet as he walked along. It was his first day and the rest of the gangs too. The government thought since they are still in their teens they need to be in school. Sonic hated the idea of waking up early and getting yelled at by teachers. Sonic looked up from his feet when he noticed a big, white building in the distance. Sonic sighed. There was his new school 'Squares High'.
"Why do I even have to go to High School? I know lots of.....well some stuff about things..." Sonic said very annoyed.
"HEY SONIC!" yelled someone from behind him. Shivers went down Sonics spine as he new who it was straight away. Sonic hesitently turned his head to the side and saw a pink hedgehog running towards him. Amy slowed down to a stop beside him and started panting from all the running.
"Hey Amy.." Sonic mumbled. He didn't feel like being glomped on.
"Phew! Hey Sonic, so how are you?" Amy asked focusing on

Weaknesses. Imperfections. Flaws. Whatever you want to call them, we all have them; I don't care who you are. Naturally, this eventuality carries over to media. A character without some kind of flaw is usually written off as being impossibly perfect, so care is usually taken to avoid that kind of assumption.
The Sonic the Hedgehog series is no different. No member of the cast is the best at everything or loved by all. Whether it is a physical weakness, a personality quirk, or something else entirely, each character is flawed in some way and, in turn, those flaws make him or her more relatable.
I'll list the flaws for everyone who's been in action over the past few years.
Sonic the Hedgehog: Cocky, arrogant, impatient, can't swim, bad tempered. Sonic is also a natural showoff.
Dr. Ivo "Eggman" Robotnik: Childish, egotistical, rash, diabolical, cowardly, stubborn, cheap, evil, greedy. Eggman is rather full of himself, too.
Miles "Tails" Prower: Weak, somewhat low sel

It was the following day at school and Mrs Bailey was still unwell, worse even as I had heard when the principal told us in the assembly hall. So Mr Hedge was still our substitute, which was great.
Although I had noticed during class time when we were doing shared activity, Mr Hedge went round interacting and talking to different people of the class, to get to know them a little, but not once had he even looked over to me. I sighed and sunk down in my chair. I don't even know why I'm beating myself up about every little think he does. But for some reason I feel a surge of jealousy and I have no idea why!
I looked over behind me and Mr Hedge was sitting on a spare desk with his feet on the chair below him, and he laughed here and there at what the girls were saying. I rolled my eyes and sat back properly, my stare focused on the front of the classroom.
I glanced over at the clock on the wall and it was only 2:45pm. Another 45 minute period class to go before school ended. I jumped a lit
