Chapter III: More than MaliciousThe midnight hour approached as Jaran Kai made his way home from Tails' lab, having once again acted as council for the adolescent fox. A poorly made up song of joy he sang as he danced down the darkened streets, allowing his glee to take hold of him again. Tails and Cosmo, the children he had been charged with protecting ever since he had arrived on Mobius, were to finally be joined in glorious matrimony. In addition, Tails had asked him to aid in the preparations for the next day. The thought sent shivers up his spine as he approached his hidden beachside bungalow, holding a hand out and disengaging the door's telekinetically triggered lock

"Stupid wrench!" I growled under my breath as I gave my tool another sharp tug. It was times like these that made me jealous of Sonic, Knuckles, and the others who managed to get all the cool super powers while I can barely tighten a bolt. Oh sure, flying is great when you're trying to reach the top shelf in your pantry, but it doesn't do much good when you're trying to mount something as heavy as a wing onto a fuselage and a bolt manages to get stuck. I would call Knuckles, but I really don't want to hear all the rap I'd get later for calling him all the way from Angel Island to get him to help me with what amounts to opening a pickle jar. A
Chapter I: Happy Birthday, Tails!"SURPRISE!!!" Shouted all who were gathered in the room as a small, two-tailed kitsune stepped into his dimly lit home, briefly disoriented by the light from the overhead lamp being suddenly thrown in his face. When his vision cleared he looked up to see his plethora of friends scattered around his living room, each with huge smiles on their faces as they heralded another year of age for the genius fox boy. Present was his best friend, Sonic the Hedgehog, wearing a striped party hat as though it were a crown as he jumped from one foot to the other excitedly. Then there was Amy, standing closely next to Sonic bearing a colorfully wrapped giftChapter I: Happy Birthday, Tails!8 months ago in Romance More Like This

It was quiet within the corridors of the Blue Typhoon. The only sound that could be heard was the engines, humming faintly as they pushed the titanic craft through space. It was not a natural silence, however. The halls that had once echoed with laughter and the warmth of friendship now felt cold and empty. Upon the bridge stood a group of close companions, all staring out of the main viewport with the same look of dysphoria frozen upon their faces. Cream clung tightly to Amy's waist as she wept softly. Amy turned to Sonic with a look of desperation in her eyes, her tears mingling with the makeup on her face as they ran down her cheeks. He sa
Chapter II: A Union in the MakingIt was late at night and Cosmo had long since retired to bed, leaving Tails alone in his workshop once again as he attempted to continue drafting plans for his incomplete plane, the X Tornado Mark Two. Finding himself incapable due to the burden on his mind he once again retrieved the black, velveteen box from within his desk and opened it, gazing at the tiny diamond ring held inside. The kitsune let out a forlorn sigh as he fingered the sparkling gemstone, reflecting back on the decision he had come to at the party, now feeling much less certain about it than before. Be it his lack of self confidence or his youth, he began to worry about whaChapter II: A Union in the Making7 months ago in Romance More Like This
Chapter IV: The Morning (Pt. 1-2)The room was warm as a light breeze entered through the open window, tickling Tails' muzzle as he lay in bed. The fox was not asleep as he should have been, however. The night had filled him with so much excitement that it had made sleep impossible. Instead he enjoyed as it passed him by with his lover at his side, her head resting against his chest tuff as her rosebuds brushed against his nose. The fox was in ecstasy; the idea that today was the day he would finally declare to Cosmo had him grinning up at the ceiling from ear to ear. Sure, he was nervous, but right now the thrill of the moment overpowered his fears and urged him out of bed.Chapter IV: The Morning (Pt. 1-2)6 months ago in Romance More Like This

As the party entered the restaurant all were taken aback by the sheer decadence of the establishment. Everything from the decor to the staff seemed to reek of ostentatiousness. At the center of the lobby was an impressive marble fountain with water cascading down its central spire over the edge of a bowl and into a small goldfish pond below. Rings sparkled beneath the water, tossed in with the wishes of children and by Mobians generous enough to spare them. The walls were painted in swirling gold
Chapter VI: The Evening (Pt. 2)"Sonic, why on Mobius are we here?" Amy complained as she dragged herself down the Mobius Strip in downtown Mobotropolis, her high-heels clapping as they struck the ground. Garbed in a familiar dress which she had worn at the party on the Blue Typhoon to try and impress Sonic, she found herself once again wearing this outfit as she and Sonic made their way to the newly constructed Mediterranean restaurant located on the strip, as directed by Shadow in a rather cryptic note. Sonic tugged at his collar as he walked wearing a suit which Amy had insistently picked out for him, finding any kind of clothing to be uncomfortable as many Mobian malesChapter VI: The Evening (Pt. 2)4 months ago in Humor More Like This

The scene quickly transitioned from a feline newscaster to what appeared to be an overhead view of the city of Mobotropolis, with the camera facing the streets below. As per the description of the newscaster, a large number of red, humanoid robots had formed a battle line at one end of the main road and were slowly making their way up the street, destroying anything that stood in their way.
Chapter XXIII: Placing the PiecesThe sound of droning metal was all that could be heard in the silent halls of Xemus' broken battleship as it continued to hang ominously above the skies of Mobius. Oddly enough the dark master himself was not on the bridge this day, but rather secluded in his meditation chamber extending his sites across the lush planet. Within the corridors the decaying form of a slave limped across the hall having been summoned by his master for reasons unknown. Upon arrival at the chamber door the servant hesitated, deciding how best to gain his master's attention.

Tails woke to find himself lying on a flat surface with a light blanket spread over him. He rolled onto his back and opened his eyes only to be blinded by a white light. Crying out, he threw his hands over his face to shield them. After his vision cleared and everything came into focus he realized he was in the medical bay, laying in the same bed that Cosmo had when they had discovered the sensor in her brain. He did not remember how he came to be here but suspected someone had carried him from the bridge.
"Maybe it was a dream," he thought to himself, "please god let it all have been a dream."
It took him a moment to realize that he was no
Chapter V: The Afternoon (Pt. 1-2)The morning came and went peacefully for the young couple of Tails and Cosmo, who had spent the majority of it gliding through the cool waters of the spring which Tails had discovered on one of his ventures. After tiring of swimming the two climbed onto the soft bank beneath the draping branches of the weeping willow, cuddling each other close as they began to grow drowsy. Turning his head he gazed at his sleepy-eyed flower, casting a loving smile at her as she lie comfortably upon his chest tuff. Raising a hand he gently brushed aside her leafy bangs, causing her to look back at him with an equally affectionate smile.

Eggman screamed frantically as he watched the main viewer, seeing three hedgehogs, an echidna, a fox, a flower, and a human force their way into the entrance of his seaside base. He had never expected a retaliation so quickly, and with his prototype Pawn undergoing a recharge cycle he had nothing to combat against the preternatural powers of Jaran Kai. He had assumed with the beating they had received less than an hour earlier that any other attack would have been dissuaded, and as such had no backup plan to combat this full frontal assault.

When they finally reached Tails' house, Cosmo could not help but be impressed by Tails' humble abode. His house was a small A-Frame style building, which was perched on the edge of a hill consisting of two stories and what looked like a basement area toward the back. There was also a shed like structure off to the side of his house, which Cosmo assumed was his workshop. What impressed her more was the fact that Tails lived in and maintained his house on his own with no parents or guardians to look after him. She wondered if this ever made him feel lonely. She also began to wonder where his parents were and why they had left their son to take

Tails sat on his couch and stared forlornly at the sprout in front of him. Time seemed to pass slowly for the fox as he watched his plant grow within its small clay pot. As the hours dragged on his mind began to wander only to arrive at the same thoughts as before. His thoughts always drifted back to his love and how he wished she could be there with him. He began to find it increasingly painful to think about her yet found it painful not to. Once again he found himself talking to the plant as though it were her.
"Hi there," he whispered softly, "I-I-I miss you..."
He hung his head and began to fight back tears. Although he could not explai
Chapter XXIV: It BeginsA heavy thud on the door of Tails and Cosmo's house had the two-tailed fox up from his couch in relatively no time at all. Up until this point the day had proceeded very quietly, with Tails in his workshop while Cosmo worked in her garden. A light rain had begun to fall prompting the two to return to their living room for a quiet evening, now postponed due to the knock at their door. Tails opened the door and was surprised to find Jaran Kai standing at his doorstep, his cloak heavily soaked from the rain coming down outside. His facial expression was one of seriousness as Tails stared at him wordlessly. Finally the human spoke in a low voice.Chapter XXIV: It Begins1 year ago in Romance More Like This

A few days had passed since the destruction of Eggman's Ultimate Badnik and things were once again settling down for Team Sonic. Routine began to set in again and the friends had resumed the normal activities with which they were usually involved in. One obvious difference remained however, and that was the presence of Jaran Kai. Undeniably their trust of him was still shaky, but everyone had begun to adapt to the presence of their new human companion. When Team Sonic participated in group activities Kai would often join them, although he was still a bit standoffish. While the construction of his house had been delayed by their ordeal with Eg

"Heck if I know, but maybe it might have something to do with that trick you pulled yesterday." Tails pondered openly to Cosmo.
"I hope not. I really don't want him asking questions." Cosmo replied, "If he does he might start to figure out my more... destructive abilities."
"They're not destructive, honey!" Tails tried to reassure her, "It was just a first time mistake. It happens!"
"Maybe..." Cosmo mumbled, "but still, I don't-Did you just call me 'honey'?"

Amy sat casually as she thumbed through a magazine, which she had picked up from Vanilla's coffee table out of boredom. Vanilla did similarly, looking through a book which she held in one hand, while sipping on a cup of tea she held in the other.

Cosmo, however, did not sleep quite as soundly, tossing and turning in her bed violently as strange images plagued her dreams.

As he lay there in silence he became aware of a light breathing sound coming from beside him.

As such, Tails decided to surprise her with breakfast in bed so as to present her with a cheery start to an otherwise dreary day.
