        Definately, I see that things are getting back to the way they
were about a month ago...(when I commented the first time)

ditto! Sonic fandom is getting to be quite embarrassing lately...this is
not what I'm here for. I haven't read ANY fan-fic since bloodlines...and
by the sounds of it...anything after that isn't worth reading except for
the minute few.

It ain't that hard people....if you are creative enough to write the
story, you can invent your own characters.

Cut it out people or I'm leaving too....and that goes for all the
unreleased sonic pics I've got sitting on my HD as well...I'm not
supporting any more of this garbage. Appologies to those who have been
doing the 'proper' type of fan-fic...(the presentable kind) Do not
bother flaming me, as I will simply ignore you.
