Bunnie's Choice

Ever since Bunnie ran away in issue #235, we haven't seen hide nor hair of her. She's been feeling vulnerable ever since Naugus deroboticized her, and she became painfully conscious of her limitations after her husband was gravely injured while defending the royal family. Bunnie has been roboticized for so long, I feel like she lost her identity along with her bionics. If that's true, she might do something rash like seek help from her Uncle Beauregard and the Dark Egg Legion in exchange for her servitude.

I would really hate for this to happen. Bunnie isn't making this choice rationally, she's making it out of guilt. She's at a critical juncture, and I fear that she's going to ruin her life by squandering a chance Robians have longed for. I can't imagine how her friends will take it, since this choice essentially flies in the face of everything the Freedom Fighters stand for. At this point I see no other course it can take (although you're welcome to post an alternative), but there's no going back for Bunnie after this. :(

(Cemetery; somewhere in Austin, Texas)

(Bunnie is wearing a cowgirl outfit as she approaches a gravestone with the words HERE LIES BEAUREGARD RABBOT engraved on it)

Bunnie: Hello, Uncle Beau; it's me.  I just came back to Texas to tell you that I'm now flesh and fur; I miss my old self.  It's just that I want to be a cyborg Freedom Fighter again; I love the metal legs and metal left arm that I used to have.  I'm going to do what's right for me; this time, I won't turn back and change my mind.  I'm going to get what I deserve; I'm going to get new metal legs and a new metal left arm.  I hope that you'll accept this; I'm going back to the way I was before: metal legs and metal left arm.  I'm going to tell my nephew Tails what I deserve to be; goodbye, Uncle Beau.

(Knothole Village; Tails' house)

Tails: Are you sure you want to do this, Aunt Bunnie?  Just remember: once you've made up your mind, there's no turning back.

Bunnie: Yes, honey; I'm going through with this.

Tails: I'll tell Aunt Sally your decision.

(Acorn Castle; Sally's room)

Sally: There's only one place where we can do that.

Bunnie: Where's that?

(Nicole [2.0 appearance] appears)

Nicole: San Jose, California.

Tails: What are we waiting for?  Let's go!

(San Jose, California; hospital)

Doctor: Miss Rabbot?

Bunnie: Yes, doctor?

Doctor: A team of scientists have successfully completed and programmed your new limbs; the outer shell is made of stainless steel that won't dent at all.  I have to tell you one thing: once we're done, you'll be confined to a wheelchair for six months so that you can recover.

(Bunnie gets up and faces Sally, Tails, and Nicole)

Bunnie: Wish me luck.

(3 days later; Knothole Village)

Bunnie: Don't hug me, Antoine; I need to recover from my latest operation!

Antoine: Why are you in a wheelchair?

Bunnie: It's a long story.

(6 months later)

Nicole: Ready, Bunnie?

Bunnie: I'm ready!

Sally: Get out of the wheelchair and walk towards Tails.

(Bunnie stands up and walks over to Tails one step at a time; she eventually reaches him)

Nicole: IT WORKED!

Antoine: Bunnie, I am so proud of you!

Bunnie: NOW, you can hug me!

(Antoine hugs Bunnie)

Bunnie: I did this for my uncle Beauregard.

Besides Sally Acorn, I want Bunnie Rabbot and Antoine to be part of the 2018 IDW Sonic the Hedgehog comic book relaunch.

i want them to continue the post genesis wave story (My upcoming comic will continue the pre genesis story)

Why not giving Sally Acorn and the Freedom Fighters an IDW makeover or something like that?
glitcher's avatar
It would be great to see all the Freedom Fighters make a return to form. Fingers crossed. :pray:

We can rebuild her - like the SIX MILLION DOLLAR MAN!

More like the Bionic Woman. :idea:

i think there is no doubt by now that Bunnie went to her Uncle, and perhaps considered Legionizing, though I doubt she'd go through with it. There could even be a very touching end to the story where her Uncle can't let her go through with it after finding out an always possible thing in Bunnie's case came to be.

I definitely plan on exploring Bunnie's fate and the consequences of her choice later in my comic. ;)

I don't know much about sonic comics if im honest.

This sort of thing makes me glad that Archie stiffed me and never renewed my subscriptions and just took my money.
glitcher's avatar
Uh... am I to interpret that as you disapproving of this outcome? :confused:
DanDrazen's avatar
There were just so many times Archie made pure hash out of the Sonic continuity, and I said as much in my reviews, that when they simply stiffed me the last time I tried to renew my subscriptions, cashed my check, and never renewed, I considered it karma when the comics faltered and officially died. I'm taking a wait-and-see attitude toward further developments. There are more important things to be hopeful about in this world.
I don't get it.

(Beauregard takes Bunnie's hand before they put her to sleep)

"You sure you don't want to back out? last chance."

"No, ah have to do this."

"There ain't no going back once this is done."

"Ah know...but this is mah choice."

(Beauregard sadly nods and steps back while the operation proceeds)

"Damn you Robotnik, look what you've driven mah little niece to."

I've always wondered one thing about Legionization: do they keep the original body parts just in case?
Im pretty sure eggman eats them how else is he suppose to eat chicken legs with a chicken being with the dark egg legion
glitcher's avatar
How would the parts be preserved? Pickling? :o
A-Log's avatar
That or freezing them in a certain temperature. Either way, it's just in case they can't handle the programming.
