Shadow and Maria PWNING by NetRaptor Shadow and Maria PWNING by NetRaptor
Okay, first, let me blame this pic on . Specifically, a journal entry of his:

You cannot pick up or use weapons with Maria, for the sake of image, but I would think that even Maria would be trained in self defense with the weapons available on ARK in case of an outbreak of a dangerous experiment, plus that would make a cool picture me thinks to have Shadow and Maria laying waste to some crazed bio-critter loose on the ARK.

Maria using a gun goes against her whole "pure gentle anti-war" image, but it sure is fun, isn't it? I wonder if she might have lived a little longer if she had been a fighter, like Shadow.

My thanks to to designing Shadow's plasma gun.

Painted in Photoshop, to my shame. I can't make Painter do this kind of thing. :-p

Edit: Made it smokier and more atmospheric. Put water drops on Shad's shoes. :-)

If it were possible, how would one write Maria's character as being able to handle herself in armed combat? I too am writing a fanfiction for this reason.

Depends on how sick she is and if your version is strong enough to handle a firearm of some kind.

Sick as in ill or morally uncouth? And I think she'll use nothing more than lightweight handguns and submachine guns, no heavy weapons. Also, throw in the possibility there may have been a non-GUN paramilitary presence on the ARK that may have held drills for emergency situations, and would she consent to it depending on the first question?

Damn, I like it when characters surprise you in new ways like this. I'm actually writing a Fanfiction story where Shadow alters the timeline with some help from an Omniversal Entity and is able to reunite with Maria in the past three-years prior to her being killed. He is given power unimaginable to protect the girl he loves, and isn't about to waste this second chance. Now, fast forward to to four years later in the new timeline, and you see Maria being a badass as well with all of the same powers as Shadow. Granted, I'm not at that point yet and my story only has two chapters so far, but this picture actually is a really good visual reference for me on how to portray Maria's badass streak... which of course isn't the type of character trait you expect her to have. Honestly, I love this picture, and I honestly believe that in times of treachery almost anyone can surprise you with their self-defensive capacity.

Glad this pic helped provide a visual for your story! I think Maria is a sadly-underrated character and needs more love. You know, aside from "let's make her a hedgie for some reason".

Yeah, I've noticed that being a theme in most Shadria fanfictions I've read; I kinda like the cross-species angle when writing her relationship with Shadow and her remaining as a human with the same powers as Shadow is just so much cooler than the Hedgehog x Hedgehog action I've seen so many times. Like, if you're going to pair the two of them together then why change Maria into a hedgehog to please Shadow; seems to me if science can give her a new body with all of Shadow's powers... then they should be able to simply transfer Shadow's immortality and powers to Maria's human body just the same. I don't know man... maybe it's my autistic, eccentric mindset speaking, but I find the aspect of cross-species relations potential for the two of them so wonderfully naughty and fun. Two pieces from two different jigsaw puzzles can still fit together.

That, and the risk of stereotyping it as beastiality. Trust me, it's safer to ship them that way, well for me at least.

Maria, I've just met a girl named Maria,
And suddenly the name shall never be the same to me.
Maria, I've just kissed a girl named Maria,
And suddenly I've found how beautiful a sound can be!
Maria! Say it loud and there's music playing.
Say it soft and it's almost like praying.
Maria...
I'll never stop saying Maria!

Heyyy, no one told me Shadow was in West Side Story!

The way you draw the Artificial Chaos makes them look a bit more disturbing. The lower part almost looks like exposed Spinal Cords or veins or something.

I figure if Chaos has a spinal cord in his water, so do the artificial ones. :-)

Yeah. Perhaps the artificial ones are basically just a brain and spinal cords inside of a cyborg head, with some sort of blue slime that the head parts allow them to control.

Not gonna get us
They're not gonna get us
Not gonna get us
Not gonna get us
Not gonna get us
They're not gonna get us
They're not gonna get us
Not gonna get us
They're not gonna get us
Not gonna get us!

Starting from here, let's make a promise
You and me, let's just be honest
We're gonna run, nothing can stop us
Even the night that falls all around us

Soon there will be laughter and voices
Beyond the clouds over the mountains
We'll run away on roads that are empty
Lights from the airfield shining upon you

Nothing can stop us, not now, I love you
They're not gonna get us,
they're not gonna get us
Nothing can stop us, not now, I love you
They're not gonna get us,
they're not gonna get us
They're not gonna get us
(Not..)
They're not gonna get us, gonna get us, gonna get us..
(Not gonna get us)
They're not gonna get us (gonna get us, gonna get us!)
Not gonna get us
Not gonna get us, gonna get us.
Not gonna get us
NOT GONNA GET US, GONNA GET US!
(Not gonna get us)
Get Us, get us..
(Not gonna get us)

Not gonna get us
Not gonna get us

We'll run away, keep everything simple
Night will come down, our guardian angel
We rush ahead, the crossroads are empty
Our spirits rise, they're not gonna get us

My love for you, always forever
Just you and me, all else is nothing
Not going back, not going back there
They don't understand,
They don't understand us

Not gonna get us, gonna get us, gonna get us (gonna get.. get us.)
Not gonna get us (gonna get.. gonna get..)
Not gonna get us, gonna get us..
Not gonna get us

Nothing can stop us, not now, I love you
They're not gonna get us,
they're not gonna get us
Nothing can stop us, not now, I love you
They're not gonna get us,
they're not gonna get us
They're not gonna get us

Like Maria, I think violence and fighting should never be the answer. But I admit that, sometimes, one has to fight for himself, family, friends or even complete stangers. Protect her, Shadow. Stand up for yourself, Maria.

I think Maria would do this if someone tried to hurt Shadow cause obviously they would protect each other and she can fight in the Shadow the hedgehog game if your Maria in 2 player mode but she doesn't use guns she slaps people

Haha, about time we see these 2 kick ass together! I wish SEGA would just take all the dead characters and have them kick ass in a 2 player game or something (they basically did that with Tikal in Sonic Adventure 2 Battle!)

Shadow: You want someof this?! *shoots left* Oh, you want some to?! *shoots right* Take this bitches!

Maria: Say hello to my little friend! *sprays a million bullets at everyone*
