Darkness. Everything Shadow the Hedgehog could see at the moment. He began to slowly open his eyes, allowing the light rays to clear his vision little by little. When he finally opened his eyes, he tried to take a look at wherever he was.
Apparently, it was some sort of research laboratory, easy to tell due to the circular room he was at, with a big observation glass above him on the wall. He was bound to a chair by some sort of rope that completely restrained him. He searched for a possible sign of Rouge or Omega, to no avail.
"Enjoying your stay, hedgehog? Sorry for the lack of comfort, but I thought chaos-proof material was just your 'thing'"
A voice was heard coming from the room. It was heavily altered and metallic, as if the person was speaking through a radio or transmitter. The owner of the voice appeared as a silhouette in a TV screen that disconnected from the ceiling, standing against a white background. Shadow could only see a figur

The young scientist looked at the doctor with disbelief. Any chances that someone actually ESCAPED Space Colony ARK were remote, if not impossible. Besides, this man claimed that he worked at the ARK, something that happened around 1955, so how come he still looked like he was 40 years old?
"Doctor..." Chris tried to say. "How... can something like this be possible?"
Dr. Weever stopped for a moment, thinking of a way to tell his story. He slowly turned away from Chris, then lowered his head in deep thought.
"It is a very long story, Dr. Thorndyke." he began. "I was the best scientist Dr. Robotnik had, alongside many other brilliant minds of my time."
"I mean your appearance, doctor. Not to sound disrespectful, but the ARK incident happened around 56 years ago! How come you still look like 40 years old?"
"After the shootout, I managed to reach the escape pods and landed somewhere on England. When I found civilization again, the government found me and

Bellbridge - England
12:00 PM (Thursday)
The warm sun shined above the city of Bellbridge, illuminating its streets and buildings with its welcoming warmness and delicacy. People walked down the streets without a care in the world, not one concern in their minds. Except, maybe, for one young boy running down the street.
The boy was sure in a hurry. His dirty-blond hair waved in the wind, as he looked around the streets with his vivid green eyes. He wore a yellow and blue jacket over a red t-shirt with yellow stripes on the shoulders, brown shorts and blue sneakers with yellow soles.
Eventually, he reached his destination: a small grassy hill with a nicely-done bandstand built on the top. There, a young girl waited for him. She also had blond hair and green eyes, but wore a white shirt with a pink light coat over it. A blue skirt, long black-and-white socks and brown shoes completed her attire. She sat on the bandstand's entrance with a violin laying on he

Sonic and I landed on top of a small building with some modern design to it, but not too far back we could see ol'England-style houses. As soon as we landed, he reversed to his usual self.
"Phew, we made it..." I said, noticing we were at a reasonable height. "I'm gonna have to agree with my online pal from the States: I'm not going anywhere near clowns and the cirus for a time, now."
"Ummm, Flavio?" he said, getting my attention. "I think clowns are the least of our worries, right now..."
I looked at where Sonic was now pointing at, and understood what he meant.
From our position, we could get a good look further into the city. There were several more classic houses, but after what looked like a perfectly circular divisional gap showing the ocean water, a completely different district showed, full of tall modernist buildings and important places, most of which seemed to be theaters and other cultural "incentives".
But at the far off distance, it

While we were in hot water, Seymour's own "entourage" of sorts was safely cruising aboard one of Ryan's prime ships, Chris and Maria sat down on comfy couches in a fancy lounge. Seymour told me later that all he did on this cruise was smile at his friends, assured that the plan was going to work.
I opened my eyes, but I still saw mostly darkness. What I saw among it where five silhouettes, each of them different from the other, but all of them over me, looking down at me.
One of them had a top hat and seemed to have a mustache, another seemed female with long flowing hair, another seemed familiarly close to Ryan, but it kept blurring in and out of my view and twitching oddly, another seemed fairly normal albeit a bit skinny, and the final one I was sure it was Timothy, since it was the same hairstyle I saw him have. All of them, however, shared a robotic un

The fact that Shadow was laying right there, unconscious among the rubble, instantly cleared Chris' suspicions. He was right! If Shadow was here, then Sonic and the others might be as well!
But that wasn't the time to stop and think about it. He had to get those children to safety.
He noticed that the stage where he was supposed to make his big speech was still there, with a microphone attached to the stand. He quickly ran to the stage and grabbed the mic.
"Attention, students!" he began, soon having their full attention. "Everybody head to the exit! The staff will deal with the situation, just go to the main gates and wait there!"
The students heard him and bolted straight to the reception area, following the path to the main gates. When they all left, Chris jumped off the stage and ran to where Shadow was. He crouched a little to take Shadow out of the debris.

The goon had its gun pointed at the girls, about to fire, when suddenly he saw their expression get even paler. Curious, he noticed also that their glance was pointed behind him. A chill running down his spine prompted him to look as well...
The blood-curdling scream of the spectral Brown Lady before him took a heavy toll on him, making him faint. The boys heard the noise and ran outside just in time to see the fainted henchman, and the spectral figure disappearing down a hallway before looking back at the children with a sincere smile.
"That was..." Maria uttered, still in slight shock. "T-the Brown Lady...!"
"Sh-she just helped us...!" Anaya added. "B-but why...?"
Seymour approached the unconscious henchman and inspected him closely.
"Maybe she has been watching over the Weever clan like the Townshend has..." he theorized. "And has come to save us from a new enemy..."

Will and Helen both went to sleep at their houses after the experience with the mysterious man, trying their best to get some dreaming on, so they could reach Nightopia again. As they peacefully slept on their beds, visions of their past adventures began flowing in their minds: their fights with the Nightmarens, the encounters with the vicious Reala, and their fight against Wizeman himself. However, there was something else. The peaceful melody of a flute playing in the background, in a calm and soothing tone that made both kids smile in their sleep. As they heard the flute playing, they heard a faint whisper amongst the melody, which sent them only one message:
"Next time you sleep, you shall reach the place you seek. But for the perils that will come, you will need help from the most unlikely of places."
Soon after the message ended, the kids woke up on their beds, smiling as the sun shined outside. Now they knew how to return to Nightopia and in

The portal appeared in the frosty night sky and released Alter from a high altitude along with three of the seven Chaos Emeralds. He began to drop to the earth soon after. Thinking fast, the wolf attempted to create an ice platform to safely land his fall, but found that he was unable to do so. He had noticed that before back when he first met with Mephiles in his consciousness. He assumed it was only due to the dark sphere's presence possibly tampering with his abilities, but now he wasn't too sure. It had to be something else.
With no other options remaining, Alter prepared for a regular landing. He could see large pillars of broken and carved stones rapidly approaching him from below. He forced his body towards them head-first, but not before grabbing the falling Chaos Emeralds, which were sapphire, emerald, and his own amethyst. The moment he came close enough to the platforms, he deflected

During the course of Phillip's endeavor, Blaze, Amy, Cream and Cheese had awakened from their comas, each flabbergasted at the nightmarish apparel of the dimension they were captive within, as well as the intimidating globe of sinister light hovering not too far above them. Dr. Eggman explained to the girls the current situation. Gasps of surprise filled the murky air as he finished. Moments after, a second dome of light could be seen approaching the group from the other side of the barricade. Eggman announced that whatever the floating sphere was, it had possession of all seven Chaos Emeralds. Alarmed, the Protectors assumed their fighting stances and waited for the sphere to dock.

Alter slowly ventured away from Gimme Shelter, head held down, eyes drooped sadly. The clouds from Syber's Plasma Storm were just lifting, welcoming Alter with a bright, fresh sunlight. But it wasn't enough to raise his mood. Words alone could not express how he was feeling this very moment. He finally received the answers to his queries. All he wanted now was to go back to his palace and slump down in bed. His stomach urged. He couldn't tell if it was from hunger, or from the depressing thoughts he was having. Either way, he was in no mood to eat.
Just as Alter was about to make a turn, he heard someone call his name. He turned around and saw Phillip waving both hands in the air to direct him over. Alter sighed. Maybe talking to Phillip would help cheer him up. The wolf approached the bar clerk, who was showing concern even before Alter said a single word. It doesn't take a scientist or a doctor to clearly

Holy Summit; Altar of the Emeralds Mid-day
It's a quiet, clear and tranquil day of guarding the Master Emerald, a large emerald green stone which is located at the center of the Altar of the Emeralds. Lying on his back with a dandelion stem-first in his mouth is no other than Knuckles the Echidna, a powerful, red echidna with spiked gloves and shoes with metallic plates and green cuffs around the ankles. The echidna lazily opened his violet eyes to check on the Master Emerald, which sparkled beautifully as the sunlight glistened on its facets. Right beside the Master Emerald are the Chaos Emeralds – seven mystical objects that are said to bear incredible and unimaginable power capable of distorting the fabrics of time and space, each with their own signature color: Ruby red, sapphire blue, topaz yellow, emerald green, clear diamond, cyan blue, and amethyst purple.

Ensuing their search of the Altar of the Emeralds, Trinity led Volt to the center of Colosseum Highway where she once assisted Laila in guarding the altar and the eight sets of Emeralds, including the Master Emerald. However, upon reaching their destination, there was only a hollow ditch where the altar used to be. Trinity was mind-boggled.
"But, I... I don't understand!" the rabbit exclaimed. "It was right here!! I'm sure of it!"
Volt stepped forward and examined the massive crater. "Hmm... It is possible that Laila changed the altar's location, having knowledge that you would be coming. It would have been far too simplistic for you to just guide me here and then leave with the Emeralds. Be that as it may, it is evident that both Laila and the altar are still currently on the island, wouldn't you agree?"

Mikee came pummeling down from the sky, a massive crater forming once contact was made with the ground and expanding. An enraged Trinity stood at the edge of the abyss, glaring down at the weakened echidna. The rabbit raised a hand and snapped her fingers, a wormhole with mysterious symbols circling it materializing over the crater. A massive Dark Claw appeared from the base of the portal and extended its reach out to Mikee, gripping her tightly in its hold. It raised back up to Trinity, bringing a barely conscious Mikee face-to-face with the Mistress of Deception.

Once Laila returned to Onyx Island, Gizmo thought it best for the group to relocate at his lab to have a more private discussion pertaining to searching out the six remaining Nebula Emeralds. The lab was located in the more metropolitan and dangerous area of Neo Soleanna called Mega City, whilst the heart of Neo Soleanna is Castle Realm – where the Sun Festival is held. Due to the rise of crime rates in this city, G.U.N. soldiers can usually be seen patrolling the streets all hours of the day. One of their global headquarters can also be found here.

None of the creatures were fighting for dominance, everything in the grassy fields were simply content to do what they were. It was serene, and everything was at peace...

For a time, all seemed well in the kingdom of Camelot. The land had enjoyed prosperity and peace during the reign of King Arthur, but such times did not last long. The King began to change. He seemed darker and more cruel than usual and his people began suffering. The economy of Castle Town was still flourishing, but at a cost. The several villages located near the Deep Woods, Titanic Plain and the Molten Mines were not so lucky. There was little money and food and the King was doing nothing about it.
The Knights would have done something to help the people, but the King had ordered they remain at Camelot, in case the castle were to come under attack. All they could do while awaiting further orders was spar and train.
