[ Great. Just great.

Shadow had planned to get finished with filing paperwork. He and Sonic had just finished a case and the black hedgehog had gotten up early the next morning so that he could fill out the proper documents and file them away, but just as soon as he'd arrived at the precinct, he'd entered the building to find he wasn't at the office at all, instead what appeared to be a strange lobby of sorts, with many large, gold rings hovering within.

The black hedgehog had seen his share of strange sights, but not really anything like this before. Looking irritated, Shadow rubbed his brow and stepped forward, taking out his walkie-talkie. ]


This is Shadow to HQ. Shadow to HQ, do you copy, over?

[ No response. ]

... This is going to be a long day.

This place...

[ Shadow stepped upon the grass, his quills blowing in the wind. It was a beautiful day, the sky was blue, the sun shining... The black hedgehog often spent days in places like this, away from other people. The Earth truly was beautiful, even if he found he no longer cared for the people that inhabited it.

But his attention wasn't caught by the scenery... no, it was by the picnic table he saw and the banner strung high above it. The table was decorated with many tasty looking treats, and the banner was bright and happy-- the writing on it was so very familiar.

It said: "Happy Birthday, Sonic!"



That was a name he hadn't heard in such a long time. Shadow peered at the banner before looking back at the table... cupcakes, cake, drinks, chilidogs... So many foods that were very popular with his old friends.


But they were no longer around. They hadn't been around in over a hundred years... How was any of this possible? Was this some kind of trick, was someone trying to weaken his resolve, make him vulnerable? Toying with his heart like this... Shadow clenched his fists before suddenly knocking most of the food off the table. ]


Nghh!

[ It wasn't possible. They had all died and Shadow was the only one left. There was no way they could be here... as much as his heart wanted it to be true. It was some kind of trick. Still, he looked down at the fallen chilidog, its condiments spilled all over the grass. That was Sonic's favorite food... ]

Sonic...

[ ooc: more shadow, more problems. info in profile and journal. the world this shadow comes from is way in the future, but the world is not destroyed. just all his friends from the past are dead... such is the life of immortals. ]

[The last thing he could remember was falling, a violent descent. He expected to burn, his body searing in the planet's atmosphere, for even through his status as the Ultimate Lifeform, he was sure that the odds of survival were stacked against him.

He'd shut his eyes, waiting for pain and what could have easily been the end...

... but instead, he found himself landing far too gently on a smooth platform, something entirely nonsensical for the drop he'd made.

He slowly peered weary red eyes open, his once shining, nearly white (with a tinge of gold) fur now back to its blackened state. Upon getting to his knees and looking down on himself...

Apart from the wounds inflicted by the Biolizard and his journey's wear and tear, he was basically untouched. Most importantly so, he was alive and well, and everything seemed...

...

Wait, no.

Where even is he, anyway?
]

What is the meaning of this? [He harshly whispered to himself, obviously to nothing or no one in particular.

He wasn't out of the woods yet.

[[ ooc :// AHHH HI ♥ Kind of... been lurking this little place and thought you guys could use some more activity, so here, have a just-post-SA2!game-canon!Shadow just plopping right in here. uwu!! ]]

[ As soon as he saw the bright lights, Shadow shook his head. How did he get roped into this again? The last time it was true that he needed a break... Sonic had wanted him to try and live a little-- but this place was for children.

It hadn't been a bad experience, but most of him thought he could be elsewhere, doing something more productive. Maybe that wasn't what 'having fun' was about, though. Part of him mused at the sign that remained... "Cute Couples get in Free!" It was there before, too... Last summer, wasn't it?

... Was it always there? Shadow remembered Sonic had said something about Amy reacting to the sign. He smirked at the idea-- of course she would like something like this. He'd met her briefly, and in that time knew that she was obsessed with the blue hedgehog. But enough of that... Shadow stepped into the elevator entrance, waiting for Sonic. ]



I hope this wasn't to make up for your embarrassing loss at the race we had last time we were here.

[ It was always disorienting to go from one area separate from time to another, though this one looked much less derelict. This one even had multiple Sonics which weren't dead, for one thing... It made Shadow feel a bit better about not having gathered all seven emeralds to revive him with yet.

Still, he knew that was still part of his mission. But that would have to wait for now. Leaping into a nearby ring, Shadow finds himself land in what looks like a town in Europe... The people look much more cartoony than the ones he'd met in Soleanna.

Hm.

Walking through the area, he finds what appears to be a large fountain in front of a University. The black hedgehog folds his arms, staring up at the establishment. ]



There are a lot of students wasting their time out here... They probably don't care about learning anything here.

[ The challenge was daunting, there was no doubt about that. Search every corner of this tear in space and time in order to find the seven Chaos Emeralds and revive Sonic the Hedgehog. But knowing that his soul was still present, that was enough for the Ultimate Life form. He knew that they could complete this task.


However, once he'd found one of the emeralds and placed his hands on it, he noticed quite immediately that he wasn't where he'd once been. While this strange dimension was filled with places and times sprawled all over the place, this area didn't appear familiar to him...

At least, not since a very long time ago.

Shadow stood up, holding the green emerald on his hand and looked around. What was this place? Didn't matter... he had to get back in order to revive Sonic. ]

[ To return without something... There wasn't any souvenir of the past, there wasn't anything he had with him before. Shadow looked about the lobby, each blink slow and confused. How did he get here? When did he leave them behind?

Who had decided that he should leave them behind?

The black hedgehog frowned, looking at his hands. He was a hedgehog once more; no longer human as he was in that world. No longer finding himself traveling with strange creatures as his partners. It all felt like a dream now, and only now had he awakened from it.

Despite that, he wasn't sure what he should be feeling. There was an emptiness that was not there before, perhaps he was still reeling from the suddenness of it. Shadow smirked, shaking his head. Ridiculous. Letting something like that get to him... ]


I left that place after all, just as I had planned to. There's no reason for mourning; I wasn't meant to be there in the first place.

[ His words felt like empty condolences. He had had friends there... Though they had long since disappeared or forgotten him. Shadow hadn't forgotten the pain of being left behind. That was something he would never forget... ]

... I wonder if they're waiting for me.

[ Shadow had decided to take a run through White Jungle, having not been too surprised to see it again. This place... it must take areas through time, because there was no way this place could exist anymore... The bombs Shadow planted destroyed the entirety of Prison Island.

Still, the jungle wasn't bad, and the fog that was present didn't bother him. He stopped amongst the vegetation, watching a large dragonfly whiz by his head. Before he hadn't the time to stand still and observe the area, but now...

It wasn't so bad. ]
[identity profile] no1canbreakyou.livejournal.com
[ Shadow was in the lobby once more, the scent of onion rings still present despite the party having been cleaned up. He was staring at a single warp ring... he'd eliminated all possibilities, this had to be the one. Having spent days trying to figure out if the ARK was actually possible to reach here...

He'd had no problem getting to it back in the real world, after all, he had the Doctor to thank for that. But this was a different place... and he couldn't be sure if the ARK in this realm would be the same as the one he knew before...

Would it still be empty and cold?

Or would it be like the home he once knew? Shadow frowned, shaking his head. It didn't matter what it was like, it could never be how it used to-- especially without the people there that made it familiar, warm. ]
[identity profile] no1canbreakyou.livejournal.com
[ For Shadow, as far as he'd met, there were two Sonics that he trusted more implicitly than the rest. Implicit trust did not come easily for the black hedgehog, and trusting enough to tell another some of his past, though mild, was more trust than he'd give anyone casually. One Sonic he met while in Johto, who he was able to share some of his story with, and come to a point of understanding, especially at a time when he was trying to decide what to do with himself since two very important people had disappeared from the world.

The other blue hedgehog was one that had found him while Shadow had been suffering from hallucinations and intense fear, showing a side he never showed anyone else. That Sonic had stayed by him and managed to bring Shadow back to his former self.

Now, Shadow had holed himself up in a Station Square library, reading a few books. He had a pile of them on a table and was steadily working through all of them... But at the same time, he thought about his recent actions, recent decisions. Was he becoming what the Professor wanted him to be? What Maria wanted? Was Sonic right; that he should be whoever he himself thought was best? Living for oneself was something Shadow never did before. It would certainly take some getting used to.

He flips another page, catching up on history and technological advances made by mankind and different parts of the world. The information was greatly appreciated, allowing him to learn about the people he was supposed to help... for Maria's sake. ]



... Hmph.

[ He reads a quote at the bottom of one page. ] “We can do no great things; only small things with great love.” Mother Teresa... [Shadow leans back against his seat, thinking about the quotation he read.] Is that really true, I wonder.
