Woo, good job! Also, If I'm not mistaken, I've heard Sonic say "bro" a couple times in the Sonic Boom show. However my memory may be playing tricks on me XP.;

That's about the score I was expecting. This is witswithme's redemption review.

*thud* Yeah...Sorry 'bout the filler. I hate it when it breaks the flow of the comic, so I wanted to put it somewhere other than when I made it. I'll fix up the location of the filler.

Some of the author notes, I'll admit, were rather unnecessary (namely the heartbeat note), and I was thinking of darkening Blaze's speech text color a bit. Whenever I do text boxes, I can never get the tails right, and the automatic ones suck, so I made do with individual boxes with a color that was on the particular character that was speaking to avoid confusion. ...Because of this, as you noticed, I had trouble placing the text boxes in places where the characters wouldn't get covered up. The ellipses (or the weird giant white dots, as you put it) were meant to signify the longevity of the silence. I see I failed to get that right.

Also, you are the third person who has complained about my attempts at telling jokes. The THIRD!!! I get it now! I FAIL AT MAKING GOOD JOKES! *bangs head against laptop*

...In any case, I'm glad to see that you enjoyed this (slightly) better than Sonic the Cat, and while 6.5 wasn't the score I had hoped for, it's MUCH better than a 2. Thanks, Ulti.

@witswithme: Sometimes the best way to write jokes is to not actually write jokes. Some of my best punnies are completely unintentional ones.

Hi, author of the original story here. Considering this review isn't only about the comic but also about the original work, I felt the need to come answer.

First, two issues: "I've never played Sonic Rush" and, although less important: "The only main game I haven't seen is Unleashed."

The unleashed part isn't a problem considering the game itself has no connection with Blaze, but Blaze's characterisation comes entirely from the Sonic Rush games, where she actually learns to trust and rely on other people thanks to Sonic, Cream and Marine, while still having her original traits of not wanting to be helped, but it's not as extreme as the beginning of the first Rush game.

Take note that, although I don't remember writing it directly, the story takes place where the characters are slightly older. I believe I put somewhere that Cream says that she's 8 years old in one of the later chapter? Something like that.

Slightly older also means that they've had a lot of time to think, Blaze especially as the setting I put her on made her isolated from everything (outside of Marine and baddies) when Sonic went back to his own dimension.
I've also described in the very first chapter what she was thinking and from that, you can guess that she might want to go forward in her life because honestly? Being isolated sucks, and it's not good for anyone's mental health.

That's how I'd justify the light banter Blaze makes with Sonic, a person she trusts and knows very well, making it easier for her to "progress".

Now for the Rouge characterization: That's my bad, at the time I wrote the chapter (which was long long ago) I had very little grasp on Rouge's character and was still only beginning writing. The too forgiving part might have been sloppy on my part as well (I'm just going to stop here to avoid spoiling the future chapters of the comic).

Hope that explains a bit more, tell me if I missed any point or if I wrong.

Cheers and congrats for the grade WWM.

@Blizzard: Well, that is a somewhat different canon, so shouldn't be here.
