I don't know what's happening to me, but I can't seem to get any inspiration at all. I suppose my muse got some vacations after all, but that won't stop me from uploading Sonic pics, though. I got some still left unfinished, and most of them are WereSonAmy, Tailsream and Knouge. I'm planning on doing some serious improvement to my backgrounds, so maybe I won't be uploading pics that often, but at least something once in a while since I'm VERY EASILY distracted, to the point where, on the little, free time I get, I get stuck in one pic for HOURS because I keep chatting, watching videos on youtube, trying to keep my puppy out of my room because he LOVES chewing my socks and shoes, going to get some snacks from the fridge and then watching more videos on youtube, EVERYTHING, while Photoshop is still open, waiting for me to keep working on said pic, so... I'll keep doing quickies or even colored sketches. I'll try to not mess them up that much while I work on my backgrounds.

Anyway, I can see a lot of people like SonAmy AND ShadAmy at the same time, like me. I was wondering which pairing is the most popular, though I have been said it was SonAmy. I don't really know, because I'm seeing ShadAmy is gaining LOTS of fans/supporters everyday, or at least I think so. Either way, I don't think it would stop me from liking SonAmy or ShadAmy.

Don't ask me about Archie pairings, because I'm not really onto them. I don't read the comics, and I'm not that interested in doing so, either. I couldn't care less about them. I'm not a big fan of the Archie Universe, I'm only into the Sega Sonic Universe because I play the games.

I think I'll draw some Pokémon pics too, most of them, perhaps, about Pikachu and other Pokémons I like (I got stuck on the first and second generation since Misty left, it's just not the same, so I don't watch the show anymore), since I keep brawling with him in Super Smash Brothers Brawl AND Melee. So Pikachu FTW! :3

Like I said before, if you want to use one of my pics for something, feel free to ask me permission to do so, so I can send you the original without that annoying watermark. You just have to swear giving me the credits, that's all :D

Take care.

.....That's the list? :O Are you sure?

I mean, I've heard from a Sonic News Network file that: On the Sonic Couples rating from a Wikipedia record, ShadAmy is the second highest in popularity, with Knuxouge being third and Shadouge being fourth. But to me, that sounds more like a 2004-7 update. Not only that, but unless we have satelite connection, we can't really count how many people support these pairs. We'd have to have a concentration camp of fans or something, since not everyone is going to go to the same site to vote.

To me, it's starting to look more like this:

1)SonAmy
2)Shadouge
3) ShadAmy
4)Knuxouge

....Or maybe ShadAmy and Knuxouge share the same spot, I don't know. Sometimes Shadouge and Shadamy are neck and neck, but people USUALLY support Shadouge and Sonamy at the same time SIMPLY because it keeps the idea of Shadow and Amy torn apart, or to them, they just think it's 'most canon,' denying the fact that SEGA may never bend Shadouge's will into a more romantic, mutual atmosphere the way they've done for Sonamy. At the same time, Shadamy has a HUGE up scale when it comes to Fanfiction.net. For a pair that doesn't even interact anymore, it's stayed in the running for an extremely long time. So no matter what place it takes on the rank's system, it's got a very large fanbase and remains ever impressive to me. Like Selene, I'm starting to see how the popularity of Shadamy, mostly SonAmyShad, is breaking out like chicken poxes all over the place. I won't lie, some people are seemingly starting to get 'bored' of Sonamy....so they're starting to hook onto other things. Others feel that the way to keep their Sonamy flame alive due to its canon repetition of...kind of being a bit anti-climatic or just..."the same old thing" at this point, is to spice it up with some SonAmyShad triangle action.

And I'll be right there with them. :XD:

THAT'S what I thought :XD: I just wasn't sure if this was still true.

Because Fanfiction.net has always been the home base and the heart of the ShadAmy fandom [which is where all this Sonic's evil crap comes from, because it was thanks to the fanfics], while there seems to be more Shadouge fanart [then again I'm not really sure?]. I'm actually shocked ShadAmy is still the runner up though, because a LOT of ShadAmy stories have been deleted off the map. The Mature section for instance? One writer who pretty much had all ShadAmy adult stories got them all stripped off :XD:

Grah.

Lol, I don't usually visit the Mature section owo I like more the sweet/drama/angst type for fanfics :3 It's HARD to find good ShadAmy fanfics, because I utterly dislike it when people "bastardize" poor Sonic to put Amy and Shadow like the victims. I admit it could be hard to put some balance in their relationship, because I have a hard time thinking about it too, trying to make them look and act like themselves and not out of character.

I don't blame people at all if they want to put some drama to the story, but they should think of better ideas than making lovely Sonic a complete jerk. Too much OCness is bad for the health, lol.

I just hope people start to open up their eyes to the ShadAmy World and understand it better, AND realize that making Sonic evil is not the way to make Amy and Shadow interact in a deep level.

You know, I think your article could actually do that :D

Oh don't worry, I'm actually a VERY late addition. People have began to stop the "evil Sonic" fanfictions a while ago.

....Well, depending on what corners of FF.net are being found. I could direct you to some one day ;) Shockingly it's a lot :O

But this is the NEW broken record: Sonic's not interested, but supports Amy as a friend, or supports Shadow and Amy being together. So basically they keep the "Sonic/Amy mutual concern and care" part in character, but take out the "mutual romance" part.

It's a lot better compared to 2004, but it's still a broken record.

I prefer using the mutual romance part to make a point that whether Sonic likes her or not realistically wouldn't shun a ShadAmy sideline-romance. One being because...Amy doesn't really interact with any other potential-love interest male BUT Sonic :XD: He's the only one in her life, really. So if her and Shadow WERE close....to me, it could end up in a conflictive love triangle that concentrates in HER heart more than any of theirs. I mean, I'll try to write a story like this one day :XD:

I used to blame the fans for the Sonic-villian fanfics, but when I played SA2, which is where the SOURCE of this came from, I began to see that some of this was SA2'S FAULT. :lol: Can you believe it?

Like a SonAmy supporter once told me, they knew it wasn't the intentions of the video game producers, but they felt like that game put ShadAmy on a higher bar over SonAmy---due to Sonic's 'less appreciative' and 'neglecting' self when Amy showed up and tagged along, but then how they had Shadow show more "interest" in her than Sonic did in the game, who pretty much turned his head and ran away at the first sight of her on Prison Island. At first I was like, "Er, interest?" But then they pointed out how Shadow could've pulled a Sonic trick out of his hat when Amy jumped on him. Meaning, he could've acted pissed off, annoyed, neglect her entirely, or just been "Shadow-harsh" on her, but instead did the opposite---waited it out and smirked at her when he turned out, then gestured after her when she left. At first, I just thought it was really comic relief...but they replayed his same 'tolerance' towards her in the promise scene. His same "niceness," I guess, when he was just a little too "nice" BEFORE and after she reminded him of Maria.

I'm sorry, I would've told Amy to STFU the moment she started screaming, "PLEEEASE, HALP US!" I mean come on...lemme daydream out this window here! You're distracting me from the big explosion of EARTH! I don't wanna help shiznit!

But Shadow sounded like he was suddenly twelve years old too by talking with her same voice of tone. :rofl: And aaagain, at first I was just thinking, "Maybe he's really happy that Earth is going to go ka-boom, and that's where his demeanor is coming from...because he's spacing out..." but the fact that he actually responded back to her by saying, "besides, there's no reason for me to halp them!" said he acknowledged her just fine, and wasn't spacing out at all.

For me it was just, "...This is really weird, dude. Even his poetic hand motions are OOC." Thinking about it again though, to me, it's been obvious that Amy and Shadow's 'brief bond' was meant to repeat one thing for Amy---her bond with Gamma. She knows he's not bad, and "'saving them is a good thing.'" It's the same as SA.

Now, I'M not saying this really means Shadow's canonically interested in Amy :lol: Who really knows...because they subtly repeated this 'potential friendship' AGAIN in ShtH.

But when I thought about it...I was like, "No WONDER fans took advantage of these little things; they recognized the flaws shown in SonAmy of SA2 [which was really comic relief], and the 'significance' in Shadow's reactions to her in comparsion to Sonic's, and then their 'brief friendliness in which both were mutually friendly', and then exaggerated it in their fanfics---Sonic's the jerk who's not interested, while Shadow is the secret admirer who's always been interested."

So SA2 did play it's part there...maybe that's why SonicTeam went, "Oh shit," and just flipped the SonAmy AND ShadAmy script all of the sudden with Sonic X.

Then there's that whole SonAmyShad SEGA rumor...lawd. Whatever, SEGA.

You made me laugh HARD with the "PLEEEASE, HALP US!", "...This is really weird, dude. Even his poetic hand motions are OOC." and the "Oh shit," from SonicTeam xDDDDDDDDDD!!

Yeah, Shadow's hand motions were kind of hilarious to me, that's why I laughed so hard when you mentioned it. And I agree, now that you point it out, I actually disliked a bit the Sonic from SA2 in that way, but started loving him more since Sonic Unleashed. I admit I would have taken advantage of that detail too, but not to the extreme like some people did and still do (though less, like you said).

Screw Chris Thorndyke. I friggin' hate his rol in the series. It's something like Princess Elise's in Sonic The Hedgehog 2006 (I don't like her either). Chris just stole Amy's rol in the Ark scene. The moment ShadAmy fans were waiting for, lol. I get annoyed by watching his gay antics to persuade Shadow to help them. He could ask for help, true, but he had no need to try to reach/"hug" him (it seemed like that xD). I was always with a "WTF?" expression watching it o_ó;

You really should try writting that love triangle :3 I would love reading it! :heart: I have a friend who wrote a ShadAmy fanfic, and in the end Sonic supported Amy to be with Shadow. He was jealous but didn't like to show it. I agree with that phsycology. I do think Sonic would do that if given the chance of a situation like that, but not without a bit of drama, lol :D

Again, I think I read about a SonAmyShad SEGA rumor before... but didn't pay much attention to it. What was that all about? o.O

Shadow thought he was Hamlet reciting some, "To be or not to be," crap to Ophelia [Amy]. That was the problem.

"And I agree, now that you point it out, I actually disliked a bit the Sonic from SA2 in that way, but started loving him more since Sonic Unleashed," I still feel like all these characters were docked on flanderization since SA2. Indeed, Sonic's more 'likeable,' but I think they should balance him out between his old self [...he was a bit of a cocky jerk and tease to pretty much anyone :rofl: ] and his 'new self.' Now he just seems like the dorky cutie who grins all the time and has no other personality but this, giving you advice with even dorkier lines.

Fail to the English Dub. Hail to the JP.

Oh my God, that Power Rangers wannabe Sonic Heroes gave me more seizures than Pokemon because it was so friggin colorful and just...."friendship is the best thing EVAR. Nothing can beat the power of FRIENDSHIP." They were on some extreme 4Kids Yu-Gi-Oh spin offs. It was just way too OOC, especially for Sonic...and ESPECIALLY for Shadow. Who the hell told him, "A date to DIIIIIE for?" was "badass"? I'm pretty sure Scar from Lion King owned that line a long time ago.

Chris Thorndyke. "Lol" on the "dyke" part. Chris, whether more likeable in the Japanese Sonic X or not, was a useless filter character no one deeply cares about. He was literally just THERE. I would give anything to fastforward the episodes to avoid seeing him and his filter-family. Don't forget his Sora from Kingdom Hearts haircut and Ash Ketchum voice. No offense to Cosmo, she's cute and all, but her whole Metraex...Star Trek...whatever back story she had, took Sonic X to a whole new level of Star Wars featuring talking hedgehogs. It was just completely unnecessary to watch for me; it made me not care. Shadow's character in the show made me care even less than I already didn't care. All I was really waiting for was indeed that Shadow/Amy scene, but all we got was a retarded, "...Shadow?" from Amy when he "expressionlessly starts crying." He had a whole waterfall streaming down his face with sparkly anime crystals in it and everything, but not one iota of 'expression change' or emotion...just like how he pretty much was throughout the entire show.

It's like the only thing good about Sonic X was SonAmy....even that kind of seemed OOC to me [Sonic's sudden endearment was a U-turn compared to the games, and to fit in with the video games' style of them, it could've been more 'developed' on his end], or at least, not entirely believable in development as a whole; I loved SonAmy before Sonic X, because it SOMEHOW, made me lose interest, despite it being our SonAmy haven. I think it just...reminded me of a really fangirly fanfiction. Same goes for ShadAmy, though. If SEGA overdid their relationship, I'd probably lose interest, because somewhere along the way they've managed to make too many U-turns with the 'romances' in SonicTeam.

I have a good chunk of love triangles I've always wanted to try :XD: For those two, anyway. It can be done alternatively, with many sides to it...but the one I refuse to do is have them just start scratching each other's eyes out like two school girls on a playground. If they have to fight in the middle of a SonAmyShad themed story, I think it should be for something entirely different---such as differences in views on a world-threatening situation and how to go about saving the city from epic 2012. Basically, blaming their tension [Amy] on something far bigger to cover it up and struggle to deny that Amy is one of the main distractions between their "alliance" together. So I guess I can't see them being directly open about this love-chaos they're having with the girl and each other; it might have to be forced out of them some way, since neither are really big on "relationships" and "romance" to begin with.

"I think I read about a SonAmyShad SEGA rumor before... but didn't pay much attention to it. What was that all about? o.O"

I have no idea. Where'd you find yours from? The only rumor...or rather, prediction, that's ever been made in reference to ShadAmy, was Ian Flynn assuming Silver was 'descended' from Shadow and Amy, mostly due to Dragon Ball Z patterns, and a few other interesting things.

But either way, they're screwing with us.

Oh wait, re-confirmations. I just went back and 'researched,'---since I'm doing this for my article too.

Now, this is me just comparing ShadAmy and Shadouge's popularity, since I always believed Shadouge was far more popular than it and Knouge in every area of fanwork just recently, and since it's only logical to see that SonAmy would be the runner up of the shipping fandom, the only 'rank competition' ShadAmy has is with Shadouge.

According to DeviantART, ShadAmy is more popular than Shadouge fanarts on this website.

ShadAmy: 8000--in something, Shadouge: 5000-in something.

According to Fanfiction.net, there are 805 story results of ShadAmy, and 364 story results of Shadouge.


[There are definitely more of ShadAmy works existing however, since back in 2004-6, the character list selection for the stories did not exist, and since ShadAmy's explosion was after SA2 was released, the majority of its stories are unlisted. Shadouge came much, much later. Trust me, I know, because Shadouge was hardly a thought when SonAmyShad spread like viruses around the fandom, and Knuxouge *as a love-interest romance, not a pair* was officially confirmed at that time]

According to youtube, there are 2,000 in something results of ShadAmy videos, and 1,000 in something results of Shadouge.

So yes,

ShadAmy is the second highest in popularity. And to me, nothing will top SonAmy, simply because it is closet "to canon." Until SEGA debuts more interaction between the black and the pink, even if it's just friendship, that's when SonAmy might have a runner up.

The two neck-runners are Knuxouge and Shadouge in third/fourth place.

wOW allot information... I kind though that ShadRouge was kind more of Shadamy 0.o
in Photobucket Shadamy is 496
and 21 of ShadRouge
but 1,294 of Sonamy
also 26 of Knuxrouge
So Still Shadamy is more than ShadRouge but Sonamy is more than Shadamy like Knuxrouge is more than ShadRouge (for little)

2012.

That would be so effing appropriate. No literally, I mean if they just had a really shitty 2012 Sonic game...in 2012. :paranoid:

Naw, I don't think it would cause a drastic 2012 [if ShadAmy had more interaction to just screw with Shipper's Tease here] in the fandom. It feels more like ShadAmy and SonAmy fans are..."coming together." To me it just depends on what goes on in the fandom than it does in canon; as long as the fans aren't wronging each other [which they will anyway], it won't be so terrible.

Okay, more like as long as there are some fans who aren't retarded and can deal with adjusting to both pairs, it'll be okay, and people seem to like both. [I like both...well, I obviously like one more than the other, but I never villianize or victimize one or the other. I don't wanna see anyone together in canon, I just like the "way things look," you know? The "so called hints." ]

..."Srsly," how much worse CAN it get?

The Sonic fandom is going to be retarded either way. It was never good. :rofl:
