Stories

Guardians

While adventuring with Marine the Raccoon, Blaze the Cat finds out all of the robot pirates are gone. Captain Whisker, Johnny, Mini & Mum, all gone. She just took down the last of the pirate ships without even realizing it. Unsure of what to do now, Blaze travels to Angel Island in Sonic’s dimension to have a discussion with Knuckles in Lava Reef Zone. She explains her situation to Knuckles and he thinks she needs a vacation from guarding the Sol Emeralds. So she takes his advice and assigns Marine to guard the Jeweled Scepter on Coral Cave Island. After that Blaze begins her vacation in Sonic’s World starting by visiting Cream’s house in Floral Forest Village.

Weapons

Tails finishes up the repairs on E-123 Omega and asks him to take his new body for a test drive by sparring with Gemerl. Omega and Gemerl take things a little too far however. Omega is unimpressed with Gemerl at first because he has heard he’s gone toe to toe with Sonic. He believes his time with Cream has dulled his edge. He offers Gemerl the chance to go back to being a battle robot with him so he can return to his full strength. Gemerl refutes his offer as he left that life in the past and now his place is with Cream and Vanilla. The two robots continue to clash and Omega realizes he was wrong. Gemerl is still a force to be reckoned with. Tails is disappointed to see them return to Vanilla’s house heavily damaged.

Hero Camp

Orbot and Cubot create a fake camp for training heroes to collect data from Cream the Rabbit to take down Sonic the Hedgehog. As they go through many camp activities Cream grows increasingly more suspicious as to what is really going on. She snaps at night when the two robots ask what s’mores are. She and the other campers tie them up and go home.

Future Growth

Silver returns to the past during harvest time at the Restoration HQ. Despite everything being perfectly fine in the future, no crisis to avert, Silver is on edge. He feels fear of what could happen when nothing is happening at the moment. While everyone was together harvesting the garden Silver was quietly freaking out. Espio goes to talk with him in the forest. He tells Silver about what he does as a ninja. If he lets fear consume him while on a mission, he will have lost before his enemy can strike a single blow. To fight the fear he must have faith in himself and the strength of his friends. The two hug and then hear Charmy causing trouble in the distance.

Another Grand Adventure for Jet the Hawk

One day in Jet’s house, Whisper’s Cyan Wisp appeared and stole his calzone off his plate. The Wisp brought the calzone to Whisper while she was stocking a Super Badnik. She took a bite of it while setting up to shoot down the Super Badnik. Jet angrily appeared from behind Whisper making a bunch of ridiculous demands. Then the Super Badnik caught him because he was making so much noise. Whisper got on Jet’s Type-J Extreme Gear and shot down the Super Badnik. For her help Jet offers her a place in the Babylon Rogues but she rejects it.

Rough Patch

In Spiral Hill Village, Rough and Tumble have an argument over the way they do things that got so heated they split up. Tumble teams up with Rouge now and Rough is partnered with Tangle. That night both teams break into the mineral museum because of the new Chaos Emerald exhibit. They are confused when they see each other and start fighting. Eventually they stopped because they realized they came up with the same plan and started to bond all over again. Rough and Tumble are back and Rouge and Tangle had to now take them down, which they did. But Rouge got away with the Chaos Emerald in hand.
