Sonic and the Freedom Fighters -- Blue Horizon
« on: July 25, 2017, 07:46:56 PM »
Hi everybody! :D So I am a big Sonic fan. I've played the games, watched the shows, read the comics, you name it. But as I've gone through all of these different incarnations, there was one thing I've noticed that all of them have in common; they don't really have a lot in common. ??? Every single version has its' own set of main characters aside from Sonic and co and its' own take on the source material if it even has much at all to do with the source material. Now, not all versions of Sonic are keepers, (Underground and X, I'm looking at you,) but there's still something of worth in even the biggest pile of dogpoo, and the actual good fragments of the Sonic franchise (the games, Sat AM, Archie, Fleetway, Boom,) have a heck of a lot of worth. And it was when I was thinking about all of this that something occurred to me. Why hasn't anyone ever tried to merge all of the best aspects of these disparate parts of the franchise into one great unified whole? Well, this is my way of doing just that.

Sonic and the Freedom Fighters -- Blue Horizon is my attempt to mishmash the best parts of the Sonic multiverse into one big composite universe. It draws more on the games and Archie (both Preboot and Postboot,) than anything else, but it's got something from everything. The biggest thing it takes from all of the different versions though is the characters. Anyone who's ever been a Freedom Fighter or a main character  is here, making for one bigarse mega-team. (Though the Chaotix and Team Dark are still doing their own things, obviously. Chaotix has Mighty and Ray by the way.) Think Justice League Unlimited or Legion of Superheroes. I've also got a list of this verse's Freedom Fighters at the bottom in case anyone wants to know the full roster, but suffice to say, it's huge. But that's not a bad thing. What it really does is give me a buttload of opportunities for storytelling. One story might focus on Sonic with Tails and Antione as side characters, while another might be about Antione with Porker Lewis and Sticks tagging along. I don't have to have everyone in every story, so it works out fine and dandy. But everyone's in there, even some supporting characters from Archie and Fleetway who are now major players here, and part of the fun is just having everyone in one place.

Anyhoo, here's links for the first Chapter, one at Fanfiction.net and another at Archive of Our Own. This chapter is mainly about setting things up, introducing the initial roster of Freedom Fighters and setting the stage for what's to come, ending with Robotnik taking over South Westside Island and the Acorn Kingdom that inhabits it. (South Westside Island is South Island and Westside Island smashed into one basically.) It's a long first chapter, so don't be afraid to read it in multiple sittings if you need to. Anyway, without further adue...

If anyone's got any questions, let me know. I've also got a timeline worked out if anyone wants to take a look at it. Also, here's a full lineup of Freedom Fighters for those who want to take a looksie:

-Tails
-Amy
-Sally Acorn
-Rotor

-Manic (Sonia and Manic are Sonic's cousins here by the way.)

Nice selection of characters.

Do you have a list of villains in mind as well? There's quite a number of them.

Oh yes. Robotnik's the obvious Big Bad, and he drives the first part of the story, but there's other villains to deal with too. You've of course got other villains working for Eggman, namely Snively, Grimer, Sleet and Dingo, Orbbot and Cubebot, Scratch&Grounder&Coconuts, and the Eggbosses. But aside from them, you've also got Scourge, Ixus Naugus, Dr.Finitevius, Lein-Da, the Nocturnus Clan, (the former two start out as part of the latter by the way,)  the Desctructix, Team Hooligan, Colonel Granite, Breezy, the Battle Bird Armada, (they're free agents and not part of the Eggman Empire, ala Tails' Adventure and Preboot Archie,) and the Babylon Rouges, and maybe more besides.  And after Sonic Heroes, Metal Sonic keeps his Metal Overlord look while renaming himself Mettalix and continues to operate on his own, so you've also got him out there too. There's also a big arc later on that reimagines Shadow the Hedgehog and turns it into an epic war involving a five way struggle between the Black Arms, the Draconians from Sonic the Comic, the Metarex from Sonic X, the Eggman Empire, and everyone else. So suffice to say, Eggman isn't the only player here, though it's going to be a while before everyone else gets their chance in the spotlight.

Hi again everybody! Anyhoo, Chapter 2's up. It's actually been up for about a week now, but, uh, well... I got banned. Just got unbanned today. So there's that. :P In any case, here's the links:

Chapter 4's up, both at FF.net and Archive, as usual.  Next chapter should hopefully wrap up the opening arc and have the Freedom Fighters officially form, and we can finally slow down a bit (ironic, I know,) with a couple of shorter stories with smaller casts before moving onto the next big thing: Green Hill. And Amy. And Cream and Big. Along with a little surprise somewhere in the middle of all that.
