Succession, Part 1 of 3: Upgrades

“So, how does it feel?”
Fiona flexed the fingers of her right hand, testing each individual joint, twisting her wrist back an forth, straightening and curling her elbow. She shook the whole limb about, feeling the heavier weight tugging against her shoulder.
“Feels pretty good, Tails… Not too heavy… and it’s only slightly numb, compared to the real one,” She replied, looking up at the smaller fox. “A little wonky, but I guess that’ll correct itself when I have them both on.”
“That’s right,” Tails nodded.
That morning, she’d been informed that her new arms were ready at the lab, and, under the supervision of Tails and Rotor, the installation had begun.
The limbs were sleek and smooth, but chunkier than the skeletal prosthetics she’d worn previously. They were unpainted, silver plating laid over a softer, more flexible material that

The Broken, Part 7 of 8: Face to Face

Idiots!” Scourge roared, storming out of the Sanctuary’s infirmary, Finitevus ambling behind him, looking distinctly unamused. “What the fuck is the point of having a goon squad if they’re just gonna get one-shotted by a goddamn robot!”
“Calm yourself, Scourge,” The echidna spoke up. “This wasn’t a fight you or they had any hope of winning.”
“The hell are you talking about, it’s just a robot. If it hadn’t already gotten a free beatdown on me when Feist took our powers away, I would’ve kicked its ass no problem!” Scourge growled, whirling on the doctor.
“Unlikely. That was a Gizoid, specifically a highly-advanced one, if it was capable of the feats you and the others described. Beta, perhaps even Alpha-Series. Not to be trifled with. Come, I’ll show you what you were up against.”
Scourge grumbled

Fiona felt cold. More specifically, her hands felt cold. So cold, in fact, that she couldn’t lift them to wipe the sleep from her eyes as she forced them open. The ground was rough and hard, the sky above her dark. Her team surrounded her, but she couldn’t make out their faces.
That was
odd. They were close enough for her to see, but yet, no expression could be read.
She tried to push herself upright, but agony lanced through her arm the moment she pressed her weight against it, and she collapsed back. The Destructix continued to stand in silent sentinel, unmoving.
“Will one of you jerks help me up!?” She demanded, but none of the faceless figures responded. She growled, and opened her mouth to snap at them again, when

Emerl stared at Nicole, blinking for a moment before she found her voice.
“You want me to kill Eggman?” She asked, incredulous.
“I thought you wanted to kill him? Why the cold feet now?” The lynx frowned, folding her arms.
“I’m not saying I won’t do it, I’m just… shocked that you’d ask that…” Emerl replied, shaking her head. “You felt… worried… when I said I wanted to kill him before. What’s changed?”
“It’s… I… I can’t say.”
“It’s Sally, right?” She prodded. Nicole glanced up, opening her mouth, and closed it, looking away again. “Called it.”
Nicole grabbed Emerl’s shoulders, and leaned close, eyes narrowing.
“You can’t let anyone else know about this, and you can’t tell Sally that I told you. She swore me to s

When Emerl landed outside the hospital, the others were already waiting for her. She touched down at the entrance to the emergency room, already striding for the door.
“Emerl, what happened?” Tails asked, voice faintly but noticeably shaking. She glanced in his direction for a moment. Nicole had told her that Tails’ feelings regarding Fiona were “complex”, and it didn’t take a genius to figure out what she had meant by that. Especially not while looking at the smaller fox’s expression, a quiet anger in his eyes that melted into open concern as he looked at her, then unrestrained horror as he saw her arms.
“Not sure, but I have a theory. I’ll explain in a moment,” She replied, stepping inside the building.
“I got the room sorted, like you asked. Just let the receptionist know,” Nicole said, floating beside her.
“Right,” Emerl nodde

“Alright, hold it steady for just a bit longer!”
Tails carefully steered the scanner drone around Emerl’s body, as she stood in the centre of the lab, her form tensed, wreathed in a golden aura. Shocks of Chaos arced around her form, and she let out a strained growl, optics focusing into a glare, aimed at the wall ahead of her.
“Alright, you’re clear!” The fox called out. Emerl let out a sigh of relief, her posture slacking as the aura flickered away as she sagged down, her arms hanging limp.
“Whew… How’d I do?” She pressed her hands against her knees, pushing herself up a little.
“The computer’s making the calculations, come on up,” Tails replied.
“Be right there!”
Emerl ambled slowly out of the testing chamber, feeling her energy starting to return. The days spent preparing the lab to measure a greater level of energy had given

Scourge stepped back through the portal, throwing and catching the Emerald in his hand, a satisfied grin on his face. The others were still milling about, and Fiona lay where he’d left her. They hadn’t tried to help her, which was good, as far as he cared.
“One Emerald, as promised,” He smirked, holding it up for his team to see before he shoved it into his pocket. He held up his hand return the Warp Ring, ready to reroute it to Finitevus’ lair. “Now let’s see what the Doc wants with it…”
The ring didn’t close.
Scourge turned, and spotted the Warp Ring hovering, not closing. He growled, stalking back toward it. Was it on the fritz? Why? How could a magic ring be malfunctioning? He grabbed the ring, tried to force it closed, shook it, nothing. He cursed, punching the golden metal. This was just his luck! He’d scraped through a fight with a goddamn robot

Sally couldn’t move.
The lab was dark, red emergency lighting casting long shadows across it. Eggman loomed out of the shade, his coat still torn, his glasses broken, moustache even more dishevelled than usual. And yet, he was still working, striding toward her paralysed body with a hideous grin, his red eyes leering down at her.
She tried to force herself to move, to say anything, but her body refused to respond, as he pulled the goggles over his eyes and raised the blowtorch.
Fire seared into her skin.

She screamed, waking to find herself curled up in her own bed, fingernails biting into her upper arms as she held herself tightly, tears starting to roll down her cheeks. Reaching out, she grabbed her computer from the bedside, flipping it open.
“N-Nicole…” She whimpered, and within a second, a warm green light filled the room, shortly followed by the glow of the lamps. She felt the

Immediately, Nic was on her feet, drawing a dagger from her boot as she lunged at Scourge. At the same time, Antoine began to fumble for his communicator, but as he did so, the hedgehog moved, kicking Nic’s discarded chair into him, knocking his wheelchair over.
In the same motion, he dodged her frenzied slashes, snap-kicking her in the gut. She crashed into the wall, but glared back at him, just as he rushed over and grabbed her by the throat. With her height advantage, she still had both feet on the floor, but his free hand caught her wrist as she swiped at him again, and he began to squeeze.
“Nice knife, I think I’ll take it,” Scourge smirked, snatching the blade as it slipped from Nic’s grasp, pocketing it before doubling his grip on her neck. Both of her hands tried to pry his away, but his grip was cast-iron.
“Nic!” Fiona cried out, finding her voice, struggling to force hers
 

Longest and darkest arc so far, done.

I don't have much to say about this one. I've sorta said everything I wanted to before in the descriptions.


Unfortunately I've been struggling with writer's block. Between depression and my sheer dislike of the political aspects, I've had CHapter 23 sitting halfway done for about two weeks now. Hopefully I can finish it pretty shortly, but in light of this, I'm shifting back to biweekly.

Schedule:

21/6/19- Succession (1/3)- Upgrades
5/7/19- Succession (2/3)- Heart to Heart
19/7/19- Succession (3/3)- Lineage

Activity


Another one done. Given the stuff I've done thus far for the climax of Arc 5, I may well have Immortal finished by the end of the week.

Considering that two weeks ago I had to drop down to a biweekly schedule because I'd been stuck on Chapter 23 for over a month, I'm going to call that a major success.
I finished two chapters today. Feels good.
Current writing situation really is driving it home how little I care about the politics of the series. It's not actually relevant to the plot, it's just an obstacle I have to get over because of what Ian left the universe with.
Weekly uploads will probably be put on hold fairly soon, going back to biweekly. I've gone three weeks without completing Chapter 23 so things are currently a bit unsustainable.
I think weekly uploads will continue for now.

I don't give badges for badge or watch back. If you watch me, I'd like it to be because you like what I write or what I have to say, or we at least talk about things (Online or otherwise), and if you give me a badge, I'd like to have earned it. Please don't throw llamas at me hoping to get one back, because that's not what I do.

Hey dude, been...awhile...Liking Ultimatum so far, and sense it taking place over the same part of the old continuity I thought I'd mention it in case you haven't heard of it yet.

A group of talented artists are working together to slowly but surely continue the old continuity. They just resolved the Mecha Sally arc with their first 2 issues and are gonna keep going from there. They are also gonna continue the Sonic Universe series.

You can check them out here if you want, I think they are doing pretty good so far. archiesoniconline.com/?page_id…
