Log entry#001: A day like no other.
Hi, I’m Amy Rose and what you are about to read may shock you beyond professional psychiatric help. For that reason and that reason alone, if you are easily terrified, PLEASE put down this logbook now. Are you still here? Then you passed the test and can now learn about the BEST/WORST day of my life.
I was walking home from the New Mobotropolitan lingerie boutique, my arms laden with a good day’s worth of purchases (hell, I was WEARING a particularly sexy bra and panty set I bought there, AND the set came with a garter belt and thigh-high stockings), when I was Hognapped by two of Dr. Eggman’s robo-goons. I don’t remember where they took me, because they K.Oed me. When I came to, I was in a Roboticizer, which is a machine that can turn a living being into an automaton. I tried in vain to escape, but my legs and arms were clasped in titanium manacles. I looked up and there loomed Dr. Eggman himself, and I couldn’t do a damn thing to free myself. He looked at my semi-nude body and said, “I don’t know WHY Sonic didn’t accept you as a mate, but that has no bearing on my plans now. In a few minutes, you’ll be a worthy general for the Eggman Army.” I, being a rebellious girl, spat at Eggman’s eye but my loogie only hit the tube I was in. He sneered at me and said “That rebel’s attitude ends NOW!” then flipped the switch.
I could only watch helplessly as my body changed at the molecular level from the fur, flesh and blood I’d always known into, well, robotics. When the energy ring passed the underwear set I’d spent a lot of money on, I looked at Eggman and yelled “DO YOU KNOW HOW MUCH THOSE COST!?!? YOU’RE FOOTING THE BILL FOR A REPLACEMENT SET!!” He just laughed in my face as it was changing, which I felt was a dick move of the highest order. When the tube lifted I was forever changed, no longer Amy Rose, I was now RoboAmy.
Eggman looked over my new robotic body and said “I’ve done it. I’VE ROBOTICIZED A FREEDOM FIGHTER!!! I TRULY AM A GENIUS!!!!! AHHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!!!” but what he didn’t know was the mind control sequence failed and I was still me. I looked at Eggman and said “I meant what I said about replacing the underwear, asshole.” The look on his face was priceless; I even took a picture to show my friends. He said “WHAT THE… YOU SHOULD BE A MINDLESS AUTOMATON! No matter… even if you aren’t under my control, you still can’t kill me. I anticipated the mind control sequence crapping out on me, so I had the Roboticizer add a component. It’s a Dead-Man’s Switch that shuts down your Regenerative Power Core if my heart stops beating. YOU’RE STILL POWERLESS TO STOP ME; PLUS YOUR BELOVED SONIC WILL DESTROY YOU IF YOU TRY TO RETURN TO YOUR HOME!” I looked at him and said “You’re wrong, Eggman. My friends WILL accept me, no matter what I am now, EVEN Sonic. You said that the dead man’s switch kills me if you die, but I doubt you extended the protection to the Army you wanted me to lead. That means I can escape. You also shouldn’t have given me full mastery of my new abilities. YOU WILL NEVER WIN EGGMAN!!! I WON’T ALLOW IT!!!” I then brought my fists together and yelled “BATTLE FORM!!!!!” and in a flash of light, I was clad in crimson armor and was looking out through a green visor complete with HUD. I opened my left thigh and drew my new Beam Saber, intent on escaping and causing as much personnel and materiel loss as possible during the escape. Eggman saw me flee and yelled “STOP HER, YOU RUSTBUCKETS!!!!! STOP HER BEFORE SHE ESCAPES AND WARNS SONIC ABOUT THE INVASION!!!” I made a mad dash for the door and my freedom, but there were eggbots in my way; they were no match for my saber and fell in one strike. At this point Eggman was fuming but strangely calm, saying “Even if you escape, you can’t run all the way to New Mobotropolis, the guards would shoot you on sight. The end result of my many attempts to conquer that city, I’m afraid.” I simply cracked my neck and said “Don’t care, Eggass. I WILL warn my friends of the invasion and use these new abilities to save countless lives.” I had fled through countless hallways and had hit a wall, literally. Using my new sonar I knew freedom was on the other side but that the wall in question was a reinforced defensive wall, so I used my new Tactical Explosives to blow a hole in the wall and made a break for it. (By the way, it only took a power level of 2 and I can ratchet them up to 20)
I flew for five hours until I reached the workshop of a friend of mine named tails. He looked at my new form and said “Amy, what happened to you? You look different.” I replied, “I was roboticized, but my unobtainium will and warrior’s spirit broke the mind control. Anyway, that isn’t why I came here. There’s a dead-man’s switch on my power core. Think you can remove it?” Tails looked at me and said, “I don’t know, Amy. First off, I don’t know how to open you up to even GET to your core in the first place. And even if I figure that out, the switch could be an integral part that would have disastrous consequences for you if I remove it. Are you still sure you want it removed?” I answered, “Hell Yes Tails. I want to kill Eggman myself, and the switch is the only thing standing in my way. Besides, I looked over my schematics and the switch isn’t an integral part, and before you ask, yes they are available to you; they’re in my positronic brain. Don’t worry about opening me up; I can handle that with ridiculous ease. Just focus on taking it out, I’m itching to get revenge.” I walked with Tails to his worktable for the procedure with Tails asking me, “Do you still feel pain, Amy? If so, I have an anesthetic program I can use.” I replied, “That’s alright, Tails. While I can still feel pain, I can turn off that function at will. One of the perks of roboticization. Save the program for when it’s needed.” On the table I opened my torso to grant tails access to my internal components, and I swear he had a nerdgasm at the sight of my inner workings. I looked at him and said “All right, Tails. The pain sensors are offline, you may begin. Just don’t remove anything vital to my body’s function.” With an almost crestfallen look, he nodded and deftly removed the dead-man’s switch, enabling me to take the fight to Eggman. I closed myself up and asked for some clothes (Hey, I may be a robohog, but I’m still a girl), which Tails promptly provided. I thanked him and promptly ran to the council hall to warn them about Eggman’s plan. I had some difficulty getting in, as expected, but Sally vouched for my identity and gave me the floor which really helped. I looked at the council and said “Esteemed Councilors, I bring grave news. Dr. Eggman is planning to launch an invasion of our fair city. He intended for me to lead his armies to our front gate and kill our forces, but my unobtainium will and warrior’s spirit put the kibosh on that. I fear he will lead his forces himself to compensate for his ‘plan A’ being unusable. We must prepare for war. I will use all of my new power and abilities to help. Please, heed my warning, for the safety of the populace you govern.” The council conferred amongst themselves for three minutes then Sally said, “If what you say is true, Amy, then we don’t have a choice. We must gird ourselves for war. Amy, you must lead our forces into battle. We don’t have anyone capable to lead in times of war.” I looked Sally in the eye and said “We do have someone, you; Sally. You have combat experience and leadership experience. I will fight, but YOU must lead.” To the rest of the council I said “Don’t worry about Sally; I had Tails work on Power Armor for her, complete with the royal seal. She will be safe and well-armed.” With the council’s OK, Sally ran to Tails’ workshop to suit up while I asked Nicole, the A.I. program in charge of running the city’s infrastructure, to beef up defenses while en route to the walls in question. The city readied itself over 3 days for war, while I stood on the ramparts, ruminating on the chain of events that led to this moment. Lost in thought, I didn’t notice Sonic come up behind me, startling me by saying “Hey, Amy. What’s going on? Sally’s wearing armor, Nicole’s turning the city into a fortress and there’s an army being trained by Shadow.” I turned and replied “Eggman’s planning an invasion, and everything you listed PLUS the fact that I’m a robohog is a direct result of that. Go see Tails for your special gear and meet me back here in three hours. All of us need to be ready for whatever Eggman throws at us.” Sonic nodded, said “For what it’s worth, I did have feelings for you; I just didn’t know how to say them.” Then zoomed off to get suited up. At the specified time, Sonic returned to my current position clad in special Power Armor that amplifies his speed to 99% light speed, makes him nigh-indestructible and gives him the same variable weapon system I have (with some omissions) then said “Wow, Amy, this armor fits like a dream. I love it, thanks.” I said “No problem, Sonic. I wanted you to be as safe as possible during battle. Sally, too but that’s because she’s royalty. One thing still bugs me: Eggman said the city guard would gun me down but I was able to enter and get the ability to kill Eggman. What the Hell is up with that?” Sonic looked deep in thought as Shadow approached, clad in a jet-black version of Sonic’s armor. He looked at me then said “Eggman was just trying to get in your head before the battle, don’t pay it any processing power, Amy. Oh, I just remembered. Why have us wear Power Armor? We’ve never needed it before.” I looked in Shadow’s eyes and said “The reason is I fear this battle will mark an escalation in the brutality of the never-ending fight against Eggman. Up until now, he’s never used his roboticizer on a freedom fighter. That changed when I was captured and roboticized, meaning he’s taking off the kid gloves and bringing his full power to bear on us. I fear many lives will be lost this time; the armor is my way to limit the casualties.” I grabbed Sonic and Shadow’s hand and begged them to be careful in the battle, for my sake as well as our hastily raised army.
On the 4th day, a sentry yelled, “AMY, YOU MAY WANT TO SEE THIS!!!!” I leapt to his position and looked where his shaking finger was pointing. Using my 10x HD optics, I saw the enemy army before they saw us, which was a good thing because I estimated the Eggman Army’s numbers at 1,000,000 strong. Those numbers told me that our army, only numbering 500,000 strong, was facing 2 to 1 odds in favor of the enemy. Sally looked at our forces and said “Today… today… today there is not a man nor woman nor cyborg that shall stand alone, not today. Today we face the menace at our door and bring the fight to him! TODAY WE CANCEL THE APOCALYPSE!!!!!” Sally’s short but powerful speech elicited a war cry of such fervor that even Shadow smiled. I looked at the gatekeeper and said “When I give the signal, open the gate for our army, but for now, MAN THE PLASMA CANNON TURRETS!!!!!!” The air was filled with the scent of plasma trails and melting metal, our artillery making a sizable dent in Eggman’s forces. Eggman was leading his army from the cockpit of the Egg Emperor Mk.5, its arm mounted sword pointed at our wall and Eggman yelling “BRUISERS, DESTROY THEIR FEEBLE FORTIFACATIONS!!!! THEY WILL BOW TO ME OR PERISH!!! WAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH!!!!!!!!!” I yelled “NOW! OPEN THE GATE!!! There is no turning back now. CHARGE!!!! SHOW NO QUARTER, FOR NONE WILL BE GIVEN!!!!”
We ran into what to this day I call a bloodbath of epic proportions, with our hastily raised and trained army proving nigh-ineffective against a machine army designed from Day 1 to be a killing force. I slew what I could, but even with my new abilities, I could only do so much against an emotionless sea of mechanized death. Tails, using a comm-link system he and I developed, said “Amy, the fight’s starting to go south for Sally, go reinforce her. Also, maybe it’s time for Eternity Armor; that may give you the edge you need to turn the tide of this battle.” I said roger then, WHILE pancaking an Eggman robot’s head, brought my fists together and yelled “ETERNITY ARMOR, ENGAGE!!!! It… Is… Time. SALLY, I’M EN ROUTE, HANG ON FOR A LITTLE LONGER!!!!” (Author’s note: “missing piece” by kamen rider girls plays during the Trans sequence and fight sequence) After a rather intense trans sequence, I flew to Sally’s aid with twin shaped energy claymores in my hands, a war cry erupting from me, almost as if by instinct. Sally was cornered by 5 Bruisers, her blood staining the intricate gold filigree on her armor with a look of defiance on her face. I yelled “SALLY, DUCK!!!” and with one swing of a claymore, felled 3 of the 5 Bruisers buying Sally enough time to use her shaped energy rapier to cleave the heads from the remaining two. She looked at me and said “Thanks, Amy. I owe you one. I thought I could take them, but I was wrong.” I admonished her for the blunder then returned to the fight, intent on working my way to Eggman and exacting my vengeance, as well as being compensated for the underwear I lost during the robotization process. As I made my way to my goal, I saw that Sonic and Shadow were fighting back-to-back, completely surrounded by ‘bots. They shared a look that said they knew this could be their final battlefield, a fate I was not going to accept, not while I still lived (changed though I may be). I yelled “SONIC, SHADOW, I’M ON MY WAY! DON’T DIE BEFORE I GET THERE!!” Sonic used his shaped energy knives to weaken the armor of the bots, while Shadow used his shaped energy muramasa blade to deal the final blow to a good number of the ‘bots threatening them, buying time for me to arrive and finish them off. After the immediate threat was eliminated, I looked at Shadow and said, my chest heaving from simulated exhaustion “Shadow, none of this is going to mean a hill of crap if we don’t take out Eggman. If he falls, his army should fall apart. I have an idea, but I need you and Sonic to draw as many Eggman robots to you as possible. You do that and I’ll do the rest.” They nodded in the affirmative and we made our way to the bastard who caused this whole thing in the first place. With Sonic and Shadow providing support, my trek was a lot easier, though I still worried about Sally’s wounds, Which it turns out I shouldn’t have bothered because as I found out later, Knuckles showed up and use Chaos energy to heal her wounds. After many ‘bots fell, we reached Eggman’s command post, where he led from a place of relative safety, and I yelled “EGGMAN!!!!!! THIS ENDS NOW!!!!!! No longer will you terrorize my home, nor will you threaten the safety of my friends and neighbors. I WILL KILL YOU AND SAVE EVERYONE!!!!!!!” Eggman looked at me and laughed maniacally then said “A lovely speech, Amy. But I am too close to victory to fail now. COME, ROBOAMY!!! SEE IF YOU CAN STOP ME!!!! GYAAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!” I looked to my allies and said “He’s mine. Keep as many of his minions at bay as you can. If I don’t win, it’s been an honor fighting alongside you.” With a look of grim determination on my face, I used my boost jets to move into melee range, ready to end this in one strike. Eggman countered with stinger missiles, making a wall of flame that I couldn’t breach without suffering melting damage, and that really pissed me off. I cried out in fury and pulled out my Tactical Explosives, ratcheted up to the upper limit, and threw them at the Egg Emperor mark 5. Eggman looked at the bombs and said “Is that it, RoboAmy? I know you have more than that. I did make you what you are, after all.” I looked at him and said with a confident sneer “Rot in Hell, Eggman. You of all people should recognize Tactical Explosives when you see them. THIS IS NOT YOUR WORLD ANYMORE, EGGMAN!!!!!” I then hit the detonator, blowing his mecha to bits, but unfortunately not Eggman himself. He escaped the blast, but was permanently scarred by a piece of white-hot shrapnel hitting the left side of his face. I looked out over the battlefield and saw that Eggman’s army had fled, leaving only 25,000 of New Mobotropolis’ defense force standing with Sally, Shadow, Knuckles, Sonic and me included. The battle was over but the war had only begun…
