kurohaai:

The cargo hold scene from my favorite fanfic :’)I find it charming when these two actually act like really good friends instead of playing the cat-mouse games.
Yes, yes I know the background is kind of half-assed—never good at drawing backgrounds anyway. And I’ve procrastinated on this picture for much too long soo yeah, glad to finally finished it!

SiiiiiIIIIIIGGHH where do I even start?!First off, this is such a well done drawing. I have a fondness for digital art with a “crispness” to the color choices and paint strokes. The tone suggests a meaningful encounter between our protagonists and draws you in well enough but after reading that fantastic fanfic, it warms my heart up so much more seeing this art after the fact. Knowing the story behind this art really solidifies the feelings you get from it initially. What a beautiful companion piece to such a emotional and amazingly written work.

How come in most ship names, it starts with the male name before a female name? For instance, in the sonic fandom, is it due to the fact that the guys just hold a higher status in terms of being the most prominent protagonists?

But It got me thinking of possible ship names starting with the girls and uh

Blaznic
Rouckles
Rouadow
Vanector
crAILS
CRARMY
AMUCKLES
AMADOW
AMILVER
BLAZER
AMONIC

But waIT THERES MORE: BLUCKLES, BLIG, AMIG, ROUNIC, ROECTOR, AMYSPIO, BLADOW

Occasionally in this fandom, you come across people who are remarkably opinionated about Sonic absolving from anything romantic or complain that “boys and girls can’t ever be just friends in things”.

And well, I agree to an extent. You all know I’m not that immersed in shipping in terms of having a lot of pairings. I only ship three couples just because they’re strongly implied to being of romantic nature in canon. Despite the huge cast of characters, those are the ONLY ones that are consistently suggestive of romance. The franchise as a whole isn’t all that romantic :/

Do people ship too much? Maybe. It’s at least too much for me sometimes haha. I personally feel some pairings get really out of hand and feel like they’re trying too hard. Sorry if this seems dismissive of any of my fellow blogger’s own ships. But I tend to get weary of it all because THAT is when it feels like nobody can be just friends.

One of the things I really like exploring is the established relationships the characters have with one another. For example, the intense yet somewhat friendly rivalry between Sonic and Shadow or Knuckles and Sonic’s rivalry turned friendship. And expanding from there, what is the nature of Amy’s friendship with knuckles? The Chaotix? Even Tails?! How can I expand on their interactions? For those who complain that the Sonic series can never have Girls being just friends with boys, those are the first friendships that come to mind! There’s plenty of platonic encounters going on in this franchise!

That said, I don’t talk down to people just because they ship more people together than I do nor do I want to hold some kind of superiority over anyone’s head. You like what you like! In the end, we’re talking about a video game franchise aimed at children starring a blue hedgehog.

Peaceful coexistence is where it’s at and we express our love of the franchise in different ways. Enjoy your time doing so and I hope more peeps are considerate to each other’s likes. :>

OHK GUYS IMPORTANT NEWS UPDATE

speedofsoundsketches:

This is not a drill.

I want to do a screenshot redraw from Sonic X or even a sonic game but I have no energy in me to watch the series again to find something decent.

HERE IS MY TASK I GIVE UNTO THOSE WHO WATCH THIS BLOG: send a screenshot and I will do a redraw of the most favorable one.

But…

Well Done! Thank you guys! The submissions box is closed and I’ll come up with a screenshot redraw soon.

I knew I was going to receive mostly Knouge stuff and yet I was still surprised by it. But choosing from those and the other ones is going to be SO DIFFICULT. YOU GUYS DID NOT MAKE ANY OF THIS EASY. THEY’RE ALL SO WONDERFUL. BLOO BLOO

Thank you all again. I hope I choose the right one ;_;

Filed under redraw party done! ramble thanks!
