TCDN Ch. 9: Cold CompassionGelid eyes scanned the surrounding forest as a bulky mechanical figure lumbered through the dense underbrush, crushing foliage under its mighty feet and leaving indentations in the soil that supported his titanic weight. Rotating its torso in a three-hundred and sixty degree arc, the robot attempted to gather more of his surroundings than its stationary-set optical sensors would ordinarily allow. Coming to a halt, the artificial construct sifted through its memory banks, much of which were incomplete and had become fragmented. Since its awakening, as he so described it, the E-Series unit calling itself Omega had become lost in its own existence. In the process of gaining consciousness, his creator had implemented one final failsafe should such an event occur. While the droid did indeed recall the events of its activation and subsequent establishment as a conscious intelligence, all recollection of its creator's location--his bases, his safe houses, even his general whereabouts, had bee
TCDN Ch. 6: The EveningA wailing scream erupted in Tails' ear as the young kitsune's eyes shot wide open. The fox jolted upward with a start, very nearly knocking Cosmo off of him as he was startled by his alarm. Woken by Tails' sudden panic the Seedrian tumbled face forward on the mattress, looking up at Tails with widened eyes.
"M-Miles!" Cosmo exclaimed sitting up quickly, "What on Mobius-"
"Stupid alarm!" Tails barked slamming his hand down on his wrist computer, killing the irritating siren, "I hate that thing! It's the worst wakeup call ever!"
"Well, it did get us up…" Cosmo yawned rubbing her eyes as she looked around the room, "What time is it?"
"Five o'clock." Tails answered, gingerly climbing out of bed and reaching for his gloves, "We need to get ready if we're going to make that reservation."
"That what?" Cosmo asked now alert, "Reservations? Where are you taking us, Tails?"
"Dang it, I didn't mean to say that!" Chuckled the fox slipping on his sneakers, "You'll find out soon. Just keep yo
TCDN Ch. 1: Happy Birthday Tails!"SURPRISE!!!" Shouted all who were gathered in the room as a small, two-tailed kitsune stepped into his dimly lit home, briefly disoriented by the light from the overhead lamp being suddenly thrown in his face. When his vision cleared he looked up to see his plethora of friends scattered around his living room, each with huge smiles on their faces as they heralded another year of age for the genius fox boy. Present was his best friend, Sonic the Hedgehog, wearing a striped party hat as though it were a crown as he jumped from one foot to the other excitedly. Then there was Amy, standing closely next to Sonic bearing a colorfully wrapped gift in hand which was neatly tied with a bow of sparkly ribbon. There was Vanilla, accompanied by her daughter Cream and her pet Chao Cheese, all standing near the coffee table by a cake which was almost certainly made by eldest rabbit. Sitting on the sofa was Knuckles, looking to be in pain, but was smiling nonetheless. Kick-standing on the wall to hi
TCDN Ch. 7: The Question...Striking the wall with a resonant bang the restroom door burst inward, as a young, two-tailed kitsune bolted inside for cover. Frantically scanning the room, he quickly ducked into one of the private stalls, shutting the door and bolting it behind him. With quivering hands, Tails sat on the latrine behind him, shutting his eyes and leaning his head against the back wall. Beads of sweat laced his brow as his body shook timorously. After managing to calm himself somewhat he lowered his head into his hands, eyes filling with tears.
For some time he sat alone sobbing, as the shame of his actions weighed itself on his mind. He had been so ready, or so he though. Having loved and defended Cosmo so passionately since her return, he wanted nothing more than to solidify their commitment in matrimony. The notion of her becoming “Missus Prower” used to make his heart leap. Yet now, at the moment of truth, the one immense obstacle he had tried so hard to ignore finally reared its ugly
TCDN Ch. 8: She Says...From behind glassy eyes, the Seedrian beauty smiled more brightly and passionately than Tails had ever witnessed of her before. Her entire body shook with excitement as she slowly lowered her quaking hands from in front of her face, finding herself unable to speak as her raging emotions overwhelmed her. Remaining on one knee, Tails waited anxiously. Time seemed to slow to a crawl, each second becoming an infinity unto itself. Staring into the bottomless depths of each other's sea-blue eyes, the two lover's minds began to intertwine, mingling in a manner more deeply and intimately than either had experienced before. For a moment, the two became lost to their special connection, their individual minds becoming indistinguishable as they briefly merged into a single consciousness; a single entity existing in perfect love.
An unknown time passed before Tails realized that he was still on his knee. Recoiling slightly, the terror of Cosmo's silence began to set in. "Cosmo, please say somethin
Through White Seed's Eyes (One Shot)
The heat outside today is blistering! For someone who craves the sun as much as I do it is rare that I am driven indoors by it! If the flowers in my garden can scarcely stand it though, then how can I be expected to? Instead I lie here in bed with Tails-- a rotating fan passes cool air over both of us as we indulge in a mid-day nap. I lay my head against his chest feeling it rise and fall as he breaths softly in his sleep. I listen to his heart beat within his chest, its rhythmic tones lulling me into a relaxed trance...
Such strange things, these animals are. They seem to have so many extra parts to them. That strange musical organ which gives them life that they call the heart is as much an alien concept to me as I must be to them. If the heart is the center of all emotions within them, then I would expect that Tails' must somehow be more dazzling than the average Mobian's. If his love for me was strong enough to pull me back from death then his heart must truly be beautiful.
TCDN Ch. 5: The AfternoonThe morning came and went peacefully for the young couple of Tails and Cosmo, who had spent the majority of it gliding through the cool waters of the spring which Tails had discovered on one of his ventures. After tiring of swimming the two climbed onto the soft bank beneath the draping branches of the weeping willow, cuddling each other close as they began to grow drowsy. Turning his head he gazed at his sleepy-eyed flower, casting a loving smile at her as she lie comfortably upon his chest tuff. Raising a hand he gently brushed aside her leafy bangs, causing her to look back at him with an equally affectionate smile. "We should head home," he said in a soft whisper, "you're tired."
"No…" Cosmo cooed, "I want to lay here with you all day."
Tails laughed quietly at this notion. Naturally he would like nothing more than to continue lying here with Cosmo, holding her close to his body and feeling the touch of her smooth skin; enjoying the intoxicating scent of her roses. If any progress
Miles Prower: The Absent Minded Genius (One Shot)
"Stupid wrench!" I growled under my breath as I gave my tool another sharp tug. It was times like these that made me jealous of Sonic, Knuckles, and the others who managed to get all the cool super powers while I can barely tighten a bolt. Oh sure, flying is great when you're trying to reach the top shelf in your pantry, but it doesn't do much good when you're trying to mount something as heavy as a wing onto a fuselage and a bolt manages to get stuck. I would call Knuckles, but I really don't want to hear all the rap I'd get later for calling him all the way from Angel Island to get him to help me with what amounts to opening a pickle jar. After working at the bolt for almost fifteen minutes I was starting to lose my patience. Hopefully I would have it finished before my date with Cosmo. I can't stand leaving a job unfinished, and I'd hate to be distracted by a stuck bolt while I'm with her.
It's funny, ever since Cosmo and I became an item after she came back I've discovered more thi
SXEA Ch. 6: Unsung Hero
Light pierced the window in Tails' bedroom and caused him to shift in his bed. He slowly opened his eyes and looked around his bedroom wondering how he ended up in his bed. He then remembered his breakdown at the beach and Sonic flying him home in the X Tornado.
"I must have fallen asleep," he said to himself climbing out of bed. He walked into his bathroom and looked himself over in the mirror. His eyes were crusted over from having cried himself to sleep and his fur was dirty and unkempt. He did not care. Nothing seemed to matter to him anymore.
Then he remembered his flower, the one thing that still mattered to him, the thing that might yet return his happiness to him. He quickly dashed out of the bathroom to check on its condition. He entered the bedroom and looked around only to find that it was not there. He began to panic until he remembered that the last place he had seen it was in his living room. He quickly ran out of his room and down the stairs. As he had guessed the plant
