Shadic slammed a Raccat against the wall while Sarah held onto his fur to keep from falling off his back, he instantly grabbed the squirming enemy’s head in his jaws and ripped off it’s head, causing an instant death to the beast.


“Grandpa I think you’re enjoying this too much!” Sarah exclaimed.


Shadic replied with a snarl, true, he did enjoy killing these things, but he had a reason to kill.


“Come on! There’s more I think I can shoot with Archer.”


Shadic swiped his tongue over his muzzle and let out a howl, long and low, this set the army of werewolves to become more violent to the enemy.


With a gleeful wolfish grin, Shadic ran off with Sarah on his back, slashing and biting any Raccat that came into his line of attack. Sarah continued to shoot arrows into the heads of targets, the help with Archer improved her aim immensely. 


-----------------------------------------


Andy was fighting next to Zato, the Naga was biting Raccats and leaving them writhing in agony, it only took Andy that moment to realize Zato was a poisonous Naga.


They were backed into a corner, Zato hissing in rage at Raccats that got close to him.


“Z-Zato what are we gonna do?!” Andy yelped, having only enough power to help finish the battle, but not enough to save themselves.


Zato seemed to think a moment before he smirked, “Your wife is a piecce of ssshit.”


Andy’s ears perked and his eyes turned red while black started to go to the whites of his eyes, “WHAT THE FUCK DID YOU JUST SAY?!”


“You heard me. A piece of ssshit.”


“WHY YOU LITTLE--” Andy’s voice mixed with one of the seven deadly sins, Zato instantly went out of his line of sight as Wrath took full control of Andy’s body.


It was only a matter of minutes before Andy’s entire body was soaked in blood and he stood over the bodies of Raccats. His eyes returned to normal and he breathed heavily. Zato slithered up to Andy and wrapped his tail around him.


“Good j-- AGH!!” Zato yelped in pain as he felt something stab his tail, he jerked his tail away from Andy and saw a sharp rock stabbed into him.


He looked to Andy in shock. Andy just glared at him, his face dripping with blood, “Never insult my wife again.”


Andy turned and stormed off, the very air around him saying that he wasn’t to be messed with. Zato hesitated before he took the rock out of his tail and quickly followed Andy.


“Andy… I’m ssssorry. We needed to get out of there…!”


“I don’t give a fuck. You insulted her!” Andy turned onto Zato and glared right into the Naga’s eyes.


“We may have fucked, but it doesn’t give you the right to insult my wife! Now learn to take a hint and leave me alone right now!” Andy snarled before turning away and walking away from Zato.


Zato stayed still for a long moment before he nodded, he understood Andy’s anger and knew it was only temporary, but just to be safe, he slithered off in a different direction to fight.


----------------------------


Gorse and Dark were fighting back to back, unarmed other than their fists even as spirits.


“Having fun prick?” Gorse asked as he shoved his thumbs into the eyes of a Raccat and tossing it aside.


“Oh you know it!” Dark exclaimed, punching a Raccat away from him.


They backed up to where their backs ran against each other, they glanced back at eachother then they smirked.


“Been a long time since we’ve used this move,” Dark chuckled facing a horde of Raccats.


“Think these spirit bodies can handle it?”


“Oh hell yeah.” Dark chuckled.


“Let’s do it.”


They pressed their backs together to where there was no space between them, they both closed their eyes as a glow formed around them both.


“Vampire….” Gorse whispered as the glow formed brighter, blinding the advancing Raccats.


Both their eyes opened and their colors both turned a deep  blood red, “COMBINE!!!” They screamed.


There was a bright flash, once again blinding the Raccats, when they looked they saw a man that looked like both Dark and Gorse at the same time.


Their bodies had merged together, creating a being more powerful than Dark and or Gorse alone. The being smirked.


“Ready for this Dark?” Said the being in Gorse’s voice.


“Hell yeah.” Dark replied.


The being jumped up before slamming back down with a massive stomp, causing the very ground to shake and crack underneath the Raccats. some fell into the ground only to have it close over them.


The Raccats screamed in fear and tried to run, but the combined Dark and Gorse attacked what was left, ripping out hearts and ripping off heads or limbs, whatever they could get to.


Eventually they cleared out enough Raccats to where they could stop attacking, they stood on the ground as a glow formed at their chest before consuming the entire body.


Once the glow faded, Gorse and Dark were standing next to each other. They turned to face each other and smirked before they gave a high five. 


“We still got it old man!” Gorse laughed.


“Fuck yeah we do!” Dark smirked, “Let’s go kill some more.”


“Agreed.”


Both men ran off into the middle of the battlefield.


------------------------------------------


Sarah and Shadic had finally managed to get into the castle, Shadic’s muzzle was now caked in blood but he found a puddle to get most of it off, turning the water red.


“Where are we...?” Sarah asked, “This doesn’t look like the castle I remember…”


Shadic let out a wolfish groan in reply, he was unsettled by the castle even though it was once his home. He slowly walked, the silence of the castle was unsettling compared to the noise that he had heard outside.


Sarah seemed to sense Shadic’s unease and gently pat his head, trying to keep him calm.


“Widow sweet… Widow sweet..” Sarah murmured.


They turned down a hall and instantly they saw Tailsica get slammed against a wall.


“AGH!!” She screamed and slid a couple inches before full on falling to the floor. She hit the ground hard.


Shadic let out a yelp and instantly ran to her, nuzzling his nose under her back before managing to slide her body on his shoulders with Sarah.


Sarah put a hand on Tailsica’s stomach to steady her, but she saw many wounds on the girl she had known since she was little.


“T-Tailsica…?”


The girl groaned and managed to roll over a bit on Shadic’s shoulders, “Not.. Exactly… Her.. Past.. Self..” Tailsica groaned.


Shadic turned his head and gently nuzzled her cheek as if he was trying to say not to push herself.


“Hn... Always caring for me and this body huh..? Good dog Shadic. One day you’ll get her...” Tailsica said slowly, trying not to use too much energy.


They heard another slam and they all looked to see Silver, but he looked different, almost glowing.


“Do you really think that trite cares for you?!” A voice said, they looked and saw Mephiles.


“I don’t… Care… She’s my friend…!” Silver growled, he looked over and saw Shadic with Tailsica and Sarah and directed his words to Tailsica.


“She can’t handle much more of this. Please stop.”


Tailsica seemed to hesitate a moment before her eyes turned blue and she passed out.


Shadic seemed frozen in pure shock, he didn’t even notice when black flames slid by him.


Riku appeared next to Mephiles, a dark chuckle escaping his form.


Shadic instantly seemed to snap out of it and he turned his gaze to Sarah, she read in his eyes that she needed to help Silver. She aimed her bow and arrow at Riku and fired, but the arrow went right through.


“Impossible!” Sarah gasped.


Riku let out a dark chuckle and dived into Silver’s body, causing Silver to stop glowing and scream in pain. He glanced over to Shadic and Sarah.


“GET...OUT!!”


Shadic stood there, frozen in pure fear.


“Witness as your ally disappears before your eyes!” Mephiles said gleefully.


Shadic stared in shock, for a wild moment he thought that the curse he had put on Silver was happening then and there, but then he saw Silver start to glow.


“I... WON’T… GIVE UP!!!” Silver screamed as his fur turned a golden color and his eyes turned red. Riku let out a scream of pain as he was pushed out of Silver’s body.


“S-Silver?!” Sarah exclaimed.


Silver looked to Sarah, “You should go on ahead, Shadic, get T to the camp. I’ll deal with this.”


Sarah picked up Tailsica quickly, putting the unconscious girl on Shadic’s back, “Come back as soon as you’re sure she’s safe. We’ll need you after the final phase of the plan.”


Shadic nodded and hurried, careful not to drop his friend as he went. Sarah waved at Silver, and quickly left.


“Oh you sent your friends away? How gutless.”

“How is that gutless?!” Silver growled

“Because...suicide is the coward’s way out.”


“Grr…! SHUT UP ALREADY!!”


“You will die this way Silver the hedgehog…. And It will be slow and painful…”


“You’re wrong. I didn’t get it before, but I do now. It’s how Shadow cares for this place and his friends. I didn’t want to get attached cause I thought I would lose someone again. But I was wrong.”

“Oh? What makes you say that?”

“...”

“...Wait a minute. Oh how rich! You’ve fallen in love with her! You fool! You know that I will kill her, just like I killed all your other dumb friends!” Mephiles laughed.


“No you won’t! I won’t let you hurt them! Not this time!”

"Oh? Are you going to try to stop me Silver? Because trust me...that is NOT a good idea."

"Mephiles...you were right that I've failed...you were right that Shadz will never truly be on our side...you were right that King Sonic can't handle this...this hellscape of war..."

"Hmm?"

"But...you were wrong when you said you would kill her, hurt them, or even erase this world. That won't happen. Because...I won't allow it!"

"You are nothing in the face of my power, I am a GOD!"

"Then quit yackin' and prove it to me!"

Mephiles growled, shooting a beam of dark power at Silver.

Silver smirked, "Hmph. This is gonna be a long day for you..."


--------------------------------

Elizabeth and Miranda just quietly chatted, trying hard to ignore the unbareable sounds and screams of the fight.

"So what do you think about Miss Cream?" Miranda asked.

"Well...she's actually really nice once you get to know her! She told me about what her life was like before all this."

"Oh really? What was it like?"

"She had this pet creature, called a 'chao?' And she used to garden and make flower crowns with her friends."

"That sounds lovely."

"Mmhm."

Suddenly, their heads glanced towards the entrance. At first, they had feared a Rauncher or Raccat had found them.

They calmed quickly when they saw it was only Shadic. However, their shock returned when they noticed Tailsica unconcious. "What happened?" Miranda asked gently.

Shadic gently lowered the girl to the soft ground and grunted. He glanced at the medical tent, and then ran off. Elizabeth seemed to understand and began dragging Tailsica into the tent.

Miranda helped shortly after, figuring out what Shadic was asking of them.

Elizabeth watched as Miranda began patching up her wounds, and stared out into the distance, "...I believe in you...grandpa...everyone..."

---------------------------------

"UGH!!" Shadow grunted, as he hit the wall. 

He growled and looked up, into the eyes of the madman behind all the years of torment, who had beaten him, tried countlessly to kill his friends, and whom had hurt the one he loved above all others.

"Give it up rat, you're no match for me."

"That's...where you're wrong...I just...didn't know it before..."

"What?"

"It's what's been keeping me...from dropping dead here really...aside from my...my..."

"Your true origin of vampiric power..."

"No...not a vampire...a demon...but...I'm not fighting for her...I'm...I'm fighting for him..."

"How pathetic. Fighting for the affection of one who cannot love you is a fate far worse than death indeed."

"That's...okay...wouldn't work out...with what's happened...recently...but even after all his stupidity, harming others even if not under his own will...I love him..."

"Shame that he will never know any of that," HellFrame said, stretching out an index finger as black energy formed.

Shadow growled, weakly trying to remove one of the rings around his wrist. Finally he got it loose, and without warning blasted a counter-active beam of energy, blasting HellFrame away.

He got up slowly, and removed the other ring with haste, "I'm not done with you...you...bastard...!"

HellFrame coughed, noticing blood as he did. He growled, "Damn...guess that old timer wasn't kidding...you ARE the ultimate lifeform..."

"No...that title belongs to someone else...I am Shadow. Shadow Avarcus Priddin, and with Aleena as my witness, you will be slain."

-----------------------------------

Silver cast a counter acting beam after Mephiles had stopped firing, catching the demon by surprise. He growled, "Why you...!"

"Save your breath, Mephiles. It'll save you from anymore humiliation today."

"You feckulant scum...! I'll kill you!"

"Wrong. It's YOU who will die today."

Without warning, he once again blasted a beam of energy at Mephiles, knocking him into a wall. Mephiles growled, pulling himself free from the debrie and began preparing another attack.

Silver scowled, "I don't think so Mephiles..."

Silently, he put two fingers on his forehead, seeming to be focusing on something. Just before Mephiles fired, he could just faintly hear Silver say, "Chaos..."

Once Mephiles fired, he noticed the ball of black energy stop, and he heard Silver cry out, "CONTROL!!"

Like that, the attack altogether was gone in a flash of light.

"What?! Impossible! How did you harness the power of chaos control?!"

Silver huffed, "Damn...it takes a lot outta ya...how does Shadz do it...?!"

He shook his head, and stood up, "Give up now Mephiles, and maybe I won't kill you."

Mephiles growled, "NEVER!!"

Silver smirked as Mephiles began forming another ball of black energy, "Heh...I was kinda hoping you would say that."

Slowly, Silver gathered his own energy to charge another beam to counter-act against Mephiles's attack. As he did so, he thought of everything that had been lost as a result of Mephiles's selfish desires. 

Then he thought of Tailsica, and sudddenly the power in the charge increased.

"Chaos..." Silver started.

"Chaos...!" Mephiles repeated.

"CANNON!!"

"INFERNO!!"

The two attacks clashed, and both tensed as it seemed their power was matched. 

Silver...

Silver's ears flicked up, "...Blaze...!"

Don't give up...we believe in you...

"...I won't...I can't...I have to protect her...and I won't let him hurt anyone else..."

Suddenly, something inside Silver snapped, and he cried out, "HE WILL BURN IN HELL FOR DARING TO LAY A FINGER ON MY FRIENDS!!!"

The power in his blast overpowered both Mephiles and his attack, and he began losing power. Soon he returned to his normal form, and began burning alive from the amount of light energy.

Silver scowled, "I get it now...it's not our power that makes us strong...it's what we fight for, and what we have to gain from stopping evils like you..."

Mephiles, even though he was suffering, chuckled, "You are a fool...you cannot erase evil...peace cannont reign forever..."

"Maybe you're right...but I will hold onto it for as long as I can...for my friends's sakes...for her sake...see you in hell, Mephiles..."

Light engulfed the room as Mephiles was eviserated by the blast. Once it had faded, he was not even dust, just nothing. Silver slowly lowered himself to the ground, and fell onto his hands and knees as his fur and eyes returned to normal.

"Ha...ha ha...it's...it's finally over...he's gone..." Silver groaned, still in pain from his wounds.

"Damn...he messed me up real bad...I should leave the rest to them...I gotta make sure she's okay..."

------------------------------------------------------------

Tailsica stirred, groaning. She couldn't remember anything after watching the battlefield. But she was in so much pain it didn't matter. She looked up, seeing a blur of white and a bit of amber until it cleared up. It was Silver.

She gasped, and tried to sit up, but flinched from the massive pain. Silver quickly made her lay back down, "You're still hurt....just stay still. I disposed of Mephiles, but Iblis escaped my grasp. Your friends are still fighting, but I wanted to make sure you were okay..."

Tailsica giggled, "I-I'm fine...really...I've spaced out before..."

"Heh...yeah right...you're covered in blood..."

"I-It's nothing..."

Silver suddenly frowned and blushed, "L-Listen...about the other night...I-I-"

"It's okay Silver..."

"Huh?"

"I didn't mind..."

Silver smiled, but looked down frowning anyways.

"Hey..."

His ears flicked up, and he looked up at her.

"Don't look so glum. It doesn't suit you," she said, before booping his nose.

He blushed even more, and she just giggled. Silver smiled again, "You know, you never told me your real name."

"It's Tailsica."

"That's a beautiful name...I've heard in Fox clan language it means 'gentle butterfly.'"

She blushed as he took ahold of her hand. She smiled at him, "Thanks for coming back..."

"I'd never leave you behind."

Slowly, despite the pain, she sat up once more and pulled him into a hug. He blushed, hugging her back gently. 

She nuzzled the fur on his chest, and fell asleep. He smiled and kissed her on the head, laying her back down, "Sweet dreams T..."

--------------------------------------------------------------

HellFrame coughed up another puddle of blood, and growled, "Fuckin' brat...just kill me already..."

Shadow spit in his face, and removed his other ring, "With pleasure..." 

As he removed the ring, it revealed some sort of gadget underneath. He flipped open the lid, "Come in, Shadic, Andy, anyone that might still be in the castle. Evacuate now. I repeat, evacuate! I am commencing the final phase!"

With that, he slammed the lid shut, and turned to HellFrame, "I'm comin' home...Terrisa..."

HellFrame sat in silence, as Shadow began glowing with red energy, "Vampire..."

"BLAST!!!"

---------------------------------------------------------------

Sam was sleeping beside his master, when his ears flicked up. He saw a large beam of light over the trees, and nudged his master till he awoke.

Talon groaned, "Sam...what the hell are you-" 

When he saw the blast, he knew well who it was, "Oh no...leave the supplies! We have to get there right now!"

Sam nodded and ran ahead, as his master followed.

"No no no no no no no...!" Talon grumbled, hoping it wasn't too late.

---------------------------------------------------------------

Everyone outside the castle stared in horror and awe as a red light spewed out of the castle and began to engulf it. Andy gasped, "EVERYONE!! GET BACK!!!"

The blast had sent most of them flying by the time they could run away, and everyone laid still, waiting as the light from the blast faded.

The first one to rise was Sarah, noticing the mist and dust that covered the area. But she could clearly see debrie, what used to be HellFrame's castle was nothing more than ruins now.

Steadily, she moved over to her father, and shook him awake, "D-Daddy...get up...we have to..."

Andy's ears flicked up and he sat up, "Ooogh...where's Shadic...?"

"I donno, I haven't seen him yet."

"Shadic...? Shadic...?!"

"Calm down Andy...I'm fine...!"

They turned their heads as he got up from under some of the debrie, "I'm just so damn tired...that form takes a lot outta ya after so many years of not using it."

After a few minutes, they were able to gather everyone else that wasn't already killed in battle. Andy suddenly realised something, "W-Wait...where's Shadow...? Did he...did he make it...?!"

Shadic seemed mortified when he heard that, "Oh no...Sh-Shadow?! Shadow?!"

Sarah seemed on the brink of tears, "Oh no..."

But a groan emerged from one of the bigger piles of debrie. Without hesitation, Shadic hurried over to the noise and began digging out the source. He gasped and almost cried with relief and joy when he saw Shadow.

Shadow coughed up some blood, "Fuck...that really drained me...I feel like shit..."

Slowly, Shadic managed to pull him out, "Sh-Shad-"

"Shut up idiot...I...I'm not gonna make it..."

"Wh-What? What're you talking about...?!"

"My inhbitor rings...were...d-destroyed in the blast...that blast drained me of everything I had...I'm dying...Alex..."

His ears flicked up, and shook his head as tears formed in his eyes, "No...no no no...! It can't end like this...! This isn't fair...!"

The others just watched, trying not to let their emotions get the better of them.

"Life ain't fair now is it...I mean look at me...I couldn't get you no matter how hard I tried..."

"...You have me now..."

Shadow's ears flicked up, "...You can't return my feelings it's not possible...not now...not ever..."

"Shadow...I...I'm sorry I didn't-"

"DON'T...don't...don't you dare apologise...this isn't your fault...it's mine..."

"Wh-What're you talking about?! I-I'm the one that bit you, I-"

"You bit me because you were defending your father...that's my fault for attacking him..."

"Sh-Shadow..."

"Can you...forgive me for all this...?"

"...I-I...I do...I always did..."

Shadow smiled, "...idiot...but...I always loved that the most about you..."

"N-Nu...?"

His ears flicked up and his eyes widened at the familiar voice, "...no..."

Shadic looked up, sure enough, there stood Talon and his guardian Sam. 

Gently, and shaking, Talon went to the two and kneeled down to him, "No...you can't do this..."

"I'm sorry Talon...my son...I hope you can forgive me for leaving you like this..."

Talon hugged his father tightly, tears running down his cheeks, "No! No I won't! I won't! You can't leave me like this!"

Shadow weakly returned the gesture, "Shh...it's okay Talon...just know...I've always been proud of you..."

"Nu...please..."

"I love you...son..."

"I love you too dad...I love you too..."

"Alex...?"

Shadic's ears flicked up, "Wh-What is it...?"

"...Take care of her...and fix your mistake..."

Shadic's ears flattened, "...Y-Yes...of course..."

Eventually, Shadow went limp. Talon gasped, "N-Nu...? Nu...?! NU!!!" 

Everyone hung their heads in sadness, the fallen warrior had done so much for them over thousands of years, and now he was gone.

Shadic stood up, "...We have lost many loved ones today, but let me assure you...it was not in vain. Today, we've achieved something great with such sacrafices. We've claimed back our home. Our kingdom."

Everyone looked up still seeming unsure, "And from here on out...we will stand tall against all and any enemies that threaten to destroy our freedom! Because today...we have won!"

The crowd cheered, the remorse covered by joy.

-------------------------------------------------------

Silver sat up, waking from his slumber. He noticed a beam of light from far off in the distance as he looked out the entrance of the camp through the flap of Tailsica's tent.

"Whao!"

Suddenly he tensed, as he could sense a powerful energy, "...They found them..." 

He glanced back at his sleeping mate, and sighed, "I'll try to get back to you, but I can't promise anything..."

With haste, he rushed out, leaving Miranda and Elizabeth in confusion. 

--------------------------------------------------------

Sonic and Shadz waited impatiently as the chaos emeralds were carefully placed on the ground. They looked up when Silver flew down to them.

"About damn time," Shadz spat. 

Silver didn't acknownledge him, "Whatever. Do you have them?"

Sonic nodded, "Shadow located Iblis with his sensory power. You ready?"

"You kidding? Let's put this bastard back in hell where he belongs!"

The three put their hands out, as the emeralds glowed brightly. One by one, they glowed, and their fur began to change color.

Sonic and Silver opened their eyes, now red and full of determination. Slowly, the emeralds themselves turned gray, and began to crack. Finally, after absorbing all their power, they broke.

The three hedgehogs flew up. Shadz averted his eyes until he finally pointed, "By the lake, it's headed for the castle!"

"The castle?! We have to stop it!"

"Sonic! Go warn the others! We'll hold him off!"

Sonic nodded, "Right!"

Silver watched as he flew off towards the castle, or at least...what was left of it anyways.

-------------------------------------------------------------

Tailsica woke up, but was surprised to see Silver gone. She got up, and peeked out her tent, despite her wounds, "L-Lizzy...? Miranda...?"

"Miss Tailsica!" Elizabeth cried as she ran over to her, "What're you doing?! You need to rest!"

"S-Silver...where...where did he-"

"We don't know, he just up and left a while ago! You need to stay here and heal!"

"But I wanna help!"

Miranda piped up, "I know you wanna help, and we do too, but you need to stay here Miss Tailsica. It's not safe."

Tailsica sighed, and gave in, "Alright..."

Elizabeth smiled, "I hope he finds what he's looking for out there."

"Me too..."

------------------------------------------------------------

The crowd's cheering had long stopped as they prepared to gather the bodies for burial and head back to camp to gather those left behind. 

Shadic looked up, seeing a light out of the corner of his eye, and saw a yellow glowing figure headed towards them. He was about to order Sarah to shoot it, until he noticed it was only Sonic.

However, he looked different, he was yellow and his eyes were red instead of green, "King Sonic! What's going on?"

"You have to get back to your camp now! Iblis is still on the the loose!"

"Wh-What?!"

"It's best you guys sit this one out! We've gotta handle this one on our own!"

Shadic hesitated before nodding, "Alright...you heard the man! Hurry up!"

Without further question everyone hurried towards the camp sight.

Shadic turned to thank Sonic, but found he was already gone. He sighed, "This is gonna be a long day..."

------------------------------------------------------------

Tailsica stared worriedly, but her ears flicked up when she saw a hooded figure walk in. Miranda herself noticed this, "Um...who's there...?"

The figure lowered their hood, it was Paula. Miranda gasped, "The queen! Is it truly you...?!"

"Miranda...! Y-Yes child it's me...I apologise for being gone for so very long..."

"No no, don't be sorry. We've been okay your highness."

"Good, good."

Elizabeth stared from her tent, "Miss Miranda...who's that...?"

Paula looked up, instantly recognising the girl, "By the stars above...is that...is that you my child...?"

"Who're you...?"

"I am Queen Paulina Margona Ligginheath The Second, I am...I am your mother..."

"...M-My...mom...?"

Paula nodded. Elizabeth stared unbelieving at first, then, suddenly, she grinned and ran up to her mother, "MOMMY!!"

Paula caught her child in a sudden hug, and smiled, laughing, "Oh Lizzy my child! How I've missed you!"

Miranda smiled as well as Tailsica. It was a touching sight to see. However the moment was interrupted by a familiar voice, "Princess...?"

Paula turned around, seeing Shadic as well as the rest of the camp behind him, "...Papi..."

Shadic walked up to his daughter, his hands shaking, "It's...it's really you..."

Paula nodded, "I...I had to stay hidden...he wanted the power in my necklace...it would have ensured we never win had he gotten ahold of it."

Gently, she put her child down, and pulled Shadic into a hug, "I was so scared...they...they killed him papi..."

Shadic's eyes widened, and he hugged his daughter back tightly, "Oh princess...I'm sorry...it's all over now...at least...it will be soon."

She let go of him, a confused look on her face, "What do you mean?"

"LOOK OUT!!"

The survivors screamed and scattered into the camp in a panic. Tailsica ran out of her tent and looked outside, "Oh my god!

Silver, Sonic, and Shadz were all holding a monstrous creature that appeared to be made for fire back. Tailsica stared in fear, "Shadow...?"

Shadz looked back at her, "...It's her..."

Suddenly, Iblis pushed against them harder, noticing Shadz distracted. However, he kept him away from the camp, "GET BACK!!"

The survivors didn't question that order, including Tailsica and they all fled into their tents.

"Chaos...CANNON!!!"

With a sudden burst of energy Shadz managed to blast the beast back from the camp. He growled, taking off his inhibitor rings, "Sonic! Silver! Now!"

"Right!"

The three held their hands out, and in unison they cried, "Chaos...BLAST!!!"

A bright light engulfed the skies and soon the camp itself. Everyone soon found themselves unconcious, though not sure they would ever awake again.

-------------------------------------------------------------------

Tailsica opened her eyes, and turned to see Silver. She felt strange, until she looked down and realised she was floating, "What's going on...? Where are we...?"

Silver tensed, "We're moving through time...into...the past..."

"But...why...?"

A bright ball of light suddenly shown, "It's...Iblis...? N-No...Solaris..." 

They flinched as the light engulfed them.

-------------------------------------------------------------------

"Look, Elise. This is Solaris, the flame of hope."

"It's so beautiful...!"

"When the flame has grown large enough, our world will change. Solaris will allow us to control time and move through history. People will be able to recitfy past mistakes, and avoid bitter fate."

"Will we be able to see momma?"

"...Yes, Elise. We'll both be able to see your mother once again."

--------------------------------------------------------------------

Shadic awoke, noticing he was in a building of some sort. However, the only light was a tiny flame embedded in the wall. He got up, noticing others as well. Paula, Violet, Elizabeth, Tailsica, Silver, Sonic, Shadz, Andy, Sarah, Fiyo...

"Where are we...? What happened...?" Elizabeth groaned.

Silver stared at the small flame intently, "In the past. That flame...it's Iblis. Or at least, WAS Iblis."

Tailsica raised a brow in confusion, "I don't get it...why...? Why're we here...?"

Silver gently took the flame from out of the wall, and held it with his powers, "...Mephiles is the cause of all this devastation. But...he only exists because of Iblis. This past...is not your world's, it's mine..."

Violet chimed in, "So...we are on Mobious...?"

"Soleanna to be exact. There was an accident, involving Iblis growing out of control. The king sealed Iblis into the Princess, Elise. Mephiles was a product of Iblis's rampage. Mephiles had killed Sonic, and the Princess's tears released Iblis."

Everyone sat and listened in silence.

"We brought him back, but we failed to kill either Iblis or Mephiles. Mephiles began creating creatures of darkness, and placing them in your world. Why yours...? I'm not sure. He's the reason HellFrame existed."

"So you're saying...if we erase him now...none of this will have happened?" Shadic asked.

Silver nodded, "No one would have died, Shadow wouldn't even be in your world really...but some of you will not exist. Hell, Sonic, Shadz, and I? We will never meet you. Any of you."

Paula stood, "...Even if I do not exist...do not experience breath and life...I will do this so that no subject will ever have to suffer."

Elizabeth piped up as well, "I want to help everyone too!"

Sarah smiled, "...I guess...this is what we've been looking for right...? Peace...? A way to keep everyone from suffering...?"

Andy smiled as did Fiyo, "Yeah, I guess that is what we wanted isn't it...? Let's do it then."

Shadz crossed his arms, "It's up to you Silver..."

"I'm with you all the way Silvs!" Sonic said, giving him a thumbs up.

Violet just simply nodded. 

"Silver...?"

Silver's ears flicked up and he turned to the voice. His eyes met with his mate, and they grew saddened. She was crying. He walked up to her, "Tailsica..."

"This...this isn't fair...! I wanna stay with you...! I can't lose you too...!"

Silver gently wiped her tears away, and smiled, "You won't lose me...I promise no matter what...I'll find you."

Tailsica blushed, "Silver..."

"We'll do it together okay...?"

Tailsica nodded, and sniffled. Though they both hesitated for a moment, they blew out the flame, and the room went completely black.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Shadic laughed and blushed as he walked down the path, his hand intertwined with Tailsica's. The kids up ahead just a few meters playing a bit as they walked.

"You know, you really are a goofball Alex!"

"Yeah I know...!"

"Oi! Devin! Slow down!" Mercedes shouted, as she tackled Devin down and gave him a noogie. 

Tailsica huffed, "Hey! Play nice!"

Shadic just chuckled, "You're so cute when you're mad."

Her face went red, "Wha- am not!"

"Are tooo~!"

She pouted, looking away from him, "Aw c'mon hun! I was just playin' with ya!"

She smirked, "Lucky for you, you're also really cute."

Without warning, she pulled him into a kiss, ignoring the groaning of the disgusted kids.

Unknown to the family, a certain hedgehog was sitting on a ledge above them, watching. He smiled, and flew off, never to be seen again.
There was a commotion at the entrance as many of the camp’s residents were warding off unwanted visitors, “Get back! You are not welcome here!”

Silver got out of the tent he had set up for himself and walked up to the crowd, “What’s going on? Move aside.”

The crowd did so, clearing a path for him. Silver’s ears flicked up when he saw two familiar faces, “Sonic, Cream!”

One of the two was a fairly mature looking rabbit girl with cream fur and a small tuft of orange hair peeking between the top of her long ears.


The other was another hedgehog with green eyes and blue fur, though he bore a crown and red cape, indicating he was royalty.


The girl moved aside, revealing a hedgehog that looked exactly like Shadow, save the glasses and scarf. Silver’s face suddenly turned half mortified, “H-Hey...b-b-buddy…!”

“Spare me. I could sense danger somewhere in this area. Figured you’d get yourself into trouble sooner or later.”

“I-I have no clue what you’re talking about Shadz! I’m perfectly fine! These guys have been pretty nice, and I’ve actually been training them.”

The grumpy hedgehog scoffed, “Silver, didn’t anyone ever tell you not to talk to strangers? Now we have to leave, the danger I sensed is directed towards you.”

“Well that’s strange. I don’t have any issues with anyone here.”

“You’re still just the stupid boy you were when you first came here. Now let’s go, we can’t stay here anymore,” he growled.


“I’m afraid we don’t take kindly to rude guests.”

The irritated hedgehog glanced up, and the crowd moved aside again revealing Shadow, “So, you must be the original. At least I know where I got my anger problems.”

“Who the hell are you?!”

“It’s a long story, but I’m not an android if that’s what you’re thinking. I’m actually cloned from your DNA. I’ve actually kinda been hopin’ to meet you.”


Silver noticed his friend’s angered expression and put his hands in front him, “Hey now Shadz! It’s okay! He’s no threat!”


Shadow watched as the angered hedgehog slowly lowered his shaking fists, “...Fine. But I told you we’re leaving.”

“Mister Shadow, I think we should hear Silver out on this one,” the girl suddenly interjected.


“What?!”

“They have kids here, and we don’t know the first thing about these creatures. Now’s a perfect time to learn what we’re up against here.”


“...I suppose you’re right. Fine. But only for a little while.”

Shadow tilted his head, “How come you’re showing up just now by the way?”

“I sensed danger directed towards the idiot here,” the other Shadow said as he pointed to Silver.


Shadow’s ears flicked up, “...son of a bitch…”

“What?”

“Listen, um...I’ll get to you later. I’m gonna just go wait for someone.”

Before anyone could protest Shadow disappeared into Shadic’s tent. That’s when Silver turned to the other Shadow again, “So...can we like...just call you Shadz for now? You know...To kinda let you guys know who we’re talking to.”

“Oh hell no-”

The blue one smirked, “That’s a great idea Silver!”


The girl however scowled, “Yeah, no. I’m just calling him what I always call him.”


“Aw c’mon Cream, lighten up!”

“Burn in hell.”

“That’s the spirit!”


--------------------------------


When Shadic returned to his tent, he was surprised to see Shadow sitting there waiting for him. He stiffened, hoping he wasn’t about to get a beating.


Shadow looked up, and growled, “What did you do?”

Shadic blinked, “What’re you talking about?”


“A party from Silver’s group just arrived because they sensed a danger that was directed towards him.”


“...I-I don’t know what you’re talking abou-”

“Answer me Alex, or I’ll have to beat that answer out of you.”


“I have done nothing Shadow!” Shadic exclaimed as he set his sword on the floor, involuntarily revealing his injured hand.


Shadow stood and grabbed Shadic’s hand and looked at the wound, “What the hell did you do?!”


“Nothing!”


Shadow pulled Shadic’s ear that was always flopped over itself, causing the wolf to yelp in pain.


“OW THAT’S MY EAR YOU PRICK!!”


“WHAT DID YOU SET ON SILVER?!” Shadow screamed, pulling the ear harder.


“ALRIGHT ALRIGHT I’LL TELL YOU JUST LET LOOSE!!”


Shadow growled, letting go of Shadic’s ear but keeping his grip on his wrist firm, “Spit it out. And maybe I won’t murder you.”

“...I-I put a curse on him…”

“...You what…?”

Shadic looked down, “I made a deal...He will die...And I will witness every second of it…”

Shadow growled, but then he sighed. Looking down, he whispered something that Shadic could just barely make out, “Why are you so stupid…?”

“Huh?”

Shadow finally let loose his grip on Shadic and made for the exit of the tent, “I-I don’t understand Shadow.”

The hedgehog stopped dead in his tracks and turned to look at him, “...I’m going to let you live with the fact that in that moment, you will make her miserable.”

Shadic starred, knowing there was more behind the reason Shadow had released his grip on him, but waited.


“...It’s like I told you...Maybe if you had just moved on, you would’ve found you didn’t need her to be happy…”

At first Shadic was still confused, but as his friend turned away again and left, he noticed just a little peek of a bite mark left between the hedgehog’s shoulder and neck.


“...Oh fuck…”


----------------------------------


Tailsica smiled lightly as she was introduced to the new guests, “So, King Sonic, Commander Shadz, and Cream? Such lovely names.”

“Thanks...I’m told that a lot” Cream said, seeming dead in her tone.


Sonic leaned in, putting a hand on the side of his mouth, “Would ya believe it if I told ya she used to make crowns outta flowers?”

Tailsica shook her head, “No, not really. But then again, she does seem to look sweet enough for that.”

Silver rubbed the back of his head nervously, “So um...sorry for worrying you guys, I kinda got tied up and totally forgot why I left the group in the first place.”

“Aw that’s alright pal, you were just tryin’ to lend a hand. I can respect that,” Sonic said, trying to lift his friend’s spirits.


“Oh please Sonic, no one here is worth the dirt on your shoes.”

Tailsica scowled, “What’s your problem?!”

“The adults are talking, now hush.”


Silver growled, “That’s enough! Leave her alone!”

“Oh? Are you challenging me?”

“Depends, you trying to pick a fight?!”


Sonic suddenly got in between the two, “Hey! Knock it off the both of you!”


Shadz growled, “Stay out of this faker! This is between me and the boy!”

“Will you stop calling me that?! I have a name!”


“Really? I don’t care.”


“GUYS ENOUGH!!” Tailsica screamed. Everyone turned and looked to her in dead shock at her tone.


Shadz growled again, “I don’t listen to stupid children.”

Tailsica returned a growl herself, her eyes turning red. Everyone perplexed at this, “Listen, asshole, you may not give a shit about anyone but yourself, but this isn’t about you!”


“Why you little-”

“In fact, you’re so unbearable it’s a wonder why our Shadow is so selfless. You’re nothing more than a coward, and as soon as this is over, you can fuck off and do whatever the hell you want.”

Cream suddenly scowled, “How dare you?! He risked his life to save me and taught me how to defend myself! You have no right to insult him!”

Sonic sighed, “Hey! This is getting out of hand, and I want all of you to ask yourselves, who’s a bigger threat right now?”

The tense air seemed to calm and Tailsica growled, “Just keep your asshole friend’s mouth shut. I don’t wanna hear anything out of him.”


Sonic rubbed the back of his head nervously, but nodded. However, they all stood in shock as once the fox’s eyes reverted back to normal she passed out and fell.


Silver caught her, but didn’t see any wounds or anything that could’ve caused her to suddenly pass out like she had, “I-I’ll just take her back to her tent.”

Sonic once again nodded, “Yeah, you do that.”


---------------------------------


Amy seemed more than stressed, it was hard enough keeping her daughters alive, but dragging Luna with her was even more difficult.


Especially since they had long ago buried David’s body instead of allowing Luna to carry it around with her magic. It didn’t help Dark had gone missing.


Despite all this, Amy continued on, a barely conscious Krystel resting on her back. Bonnie just learned to keep her mouth shut at this point.


Suddenly, Amy stopped. Pain hit her like a brick and she collapsed. Bonnie gasped, and Luna’s ears flicked up. Krystel rolled off her mother’s back, and lifted her head.


“Mom!” Bonnie shouted in distress.


Amy gripped at her chest, quivering and jittering as her eyes and ears gave little twitches. After several minutes she began to cough up blood.


“Oh my god…! Luna what do we do?!” Bonnie cried, glancing at the mortified alicorn.


Luna’s ears flattened, and her legs finally gave out. She put her hooves on her head, keeping her ears pressed down in order to block out any noises.


Krystel groaned, and slowly sat up, “M-Mom…?”


Bonnie quickly covered her sister’s eyes, “Don’t look Krys!”


They all listened in horror as the keening hisses Amy made turned to silence. Bonnie looked up, seeing her mother completely limp.


“Oh my god…!” she yelped.


Krystel began sobbing, “What is it Bon Bon…? Why won’t you let me look…?!”

Bonnie slowly stood up with Krystel, and inched to Luna. She tried relentlessly to get the mare to stand up, respond, something.


But it seemed this time she wouldn’t get up again. Bonnie sighed, “Ba ba...why did you have to disappear like this…? I don’t know what to do…!”


------------------------------------------


Bella tensed up as she felt the force of life slip from her senses. She looked down, scowling intensely, “Mother…” Talon heard this, and turned his head.


He himself hadn’t been doing very well, he hated that had to sit and wait like this. He growled, and suddenly stood up, “I can’t do this anymore.”

“Tal-”

“Sorry Bells, but I’m tired of sitting around. I have to go out there and find them.”

“Talon, your father is strong! He can take care of himself!”

“But he’s aged a lot! He could be getting weaker!”

Bella sighed, “There’s just no talking to you about this is there?!”

“Nope,” Talon said, though he showed no amusement in his response.


“Sam!”

A young gray wolf with stars on fur that pulled over his face like bangs ran up after a few minutes. He barked and then sat obediently.

Bella sighed again, “What? No goodbye at least?”

Talon smiled, and walked back to his wife. After planting a quick kiss on her lips, his hand absently wandered onto her stomach, “Stay safe.”

Bella smirked, “Funny, I was about to say the same thing about you.”

“Ha ha Bells, seriously. I don’t want-”

“I know how to take care of myself, just go.”


Talon sighed, “So stubborn. Hope they’re not like you in that regard.”


He turned and left, the dog following behind him. Bella just sighed, “I do hope that he knows what he’s doing. Aleena knows what trouble he can get into…”

----------------------------------


Small paws dipped into the waters of the lake as did a pair of feet. The young pup looked up at his new master sadly, but he only got a look of pure regret in return.


The pup’s master was a bit intimidating at first, but after a while his whole look seemed to grow on the pup. He was extremely tall, and was clearly a red fox at first glance.


He was also covered in stitches and scars, and the mark on his bangs was unsettling to say the least. The pup remembered seeing something that looked similar to it carved into pumpkins during the fall.


He didn’t quite know what it was for, but it seemed to be a celebration of some sort. The man sighed, “How did it ever get like this…?”

The pup didn’t really do much to respond, outside a tilt of his head. The man smiled, “Oh right. You probably can’t understand me. Oh well. I’ll roll with it.”

The pup just wagged his tail a bit, anticipating a movement from his master but nothing happened. “Well, since we’re stuck with each other, I suppose I should give you a name.”

The pup made a strange sound, it wasn’t a whine, but it wasn’t a bark either. The man tapped his chin, “Hmm...how about...Fluffy?”

His nose scrunched up at that, and the man laughed, “Aw c’mon! I always wanted a dog with that name anyways!”


At first it seemed the pup wouldn’t comply, but he made the strange sound he had made before and the man took that as a sign of approval.


“My name’s Razor by the way, not that you’ll need to know. Buuut it’s only fair that I give you my name since I just named you.”


The newly named Fluffy wagged his tail a bit as Razor stood and then gave a small bark. Razor looked down at the pup and smiled.


“Let’s see if I can find a ball for you,” Razor chuckled.


---------------------------------


Blue eyes watched the moon carefully, though they were still restricted by the entrance of a cave. A soft tapping of feet pulled her from her thoughts however.


She turned, seeing her mate with an empty bag slumped over his shoulder, “...I suppose it’s time for me to go find food again.”

She nodded, “Yes. And perhaps soon we won’t have to hide.”


Her mate tensed at the statement, “I doubt it Paula. It’s been eight thousand years. Though I think he stopped looking for you, it’s still gonna be a while before they’re ready.”

“Just be careful Henry. I don’t want to be alone out here.”


Henry smiled, “Hey, I’m still here aren’t I? I’ll be fine.”

Paula watched worriedly as he passed by her and disappeared between the trees. All she did after was wait. And wait. And wait.


Paula tensed when the sun began to rise, and still her mate had not returned. But still she waited, until she saw the sun set once more.


She knew something was not right. Carefully covering her necklace with her cloak, she stepped out of the cave for the first time since she had first entered it.


It didn’t take her long to find what she was looking for, but she fell to her knees at what she saw. Henry was lying limp, his bag and clothes stained with blood.


“...Oh my god…”


She gently reached a hand out and put it on his head, moving his bangs away from his closed eyes. She sniffled, “I’m sorry Henry...this is all my fault...if I hadn’t gotten involved with you…”

Her words faded and she stood, and left quickly. Once she reached the cave again, she put her hand on her necklace, “...Be ready, they will need you soon…”


---------------------------------------


Silver was in Tailsica’s tent, packing up the food she had prepared for him. He turned to grab stuff off the next shelf, but noticed she was staring solemnly at the small fire she had made.


“Is everything okay?”


Tailsica’s ears suddenly flick up, and she looked up at Silver sadly, “I really wish you wouldn’t go…”


Silver sighed, and after finishing his packing walked over and gently hugged her, “It's just as hard for me too...but this is something I have to do…”


Tailsica returned his embrace, tears forming in her eyes. Silver sighed again, and planted a kiss on her head. Her ears flicked up in response, and she blushed.


He noticed this, and let go. Before he left, he had stared solemnly into her eyes as if to apologise for something. Tailsica sat there, trying to rationalise what had just happened.


After a while, she smiled. She had a lot to think about.


--------------------------------


“Are you sure we’re ready uncle?” Sarah said, worriedly.


Shadic nodded in reply, “We have our weapons and we’ve trained hard the past few months. We head out at dawn and attack.”


Violet chimed in as well, “Remember, leave Iblis to Silver. That’s their problem, not ours. Focus on the threat.”


She turned her gaze to Andy, “Are you sure you wanna be the one to challenge him?”

“I’m sure. I’ll make him pay for what he’s done to my frie-”

“No you’re not.”

Everyone looked up as Shadow stepped in the tent, “You’re not going in that castle as far as I’m concerned. I’ll be the one to slay him.”

Shadic growled, “Out of the question!”

“Don’t tell me what to do idiot. Besides, we all know the clock is ticking on my life. We know that converted mortals don’t live too long.”


Shadic’s ears flattened against his head, “...Sh-Shadow you don’t need to do this! There has to be someone else-”

“I’ve made up my mind Alex. You’re not stopping me.”


Violet stared at Shadow before speaking, “You’ve been thinking about this a lot haven’t you?”

Shadow nodded, “It has to be me. But I want no word of this reaching Tailsica, understand?”

Everyone nodded, though they were still tense.


Andy suddenly groaned a bit and held his side in pain, Shadic went over to Andy and made him sit down.


“You shouldn’t be standing this long Andy... And you shouldn’t fight in this battle if that wound won’t heal.”


“I’m the only Dracula damned light here Shadic!” Andy snarled, “I will fight!”


Shadic’s ears flattened against his head at Andy’s anger,but he understood it as well. With a sigh, Shadic nodded.


“Daddy, you need some rest,” Sarah said.


“I won’t rest till this meeting is over.”


Shadow glanced at Shadic once more, a pained look in his eyes. At first Shadic thought he was regretting his decision, but then he realised what it was.


“...Take care of her, and do it right this time, understand?”


“I understand…” Shadic said.


Violet nodded, “Alright everyone, disband. We wake at the crack of dawn.”

With that, everyone left, except for Sarah, “Hey...uncle…?”

Shadic’s ears flicked up at this, “Hm? What is it sweetie?”

“Do you...do you think we’ll win…?”

He sighed, “...I-I don’t know Sarah...but we can only try.”


Sarah nodded, then left. Shadic once again sighed, “But...I do have my regrets…”


--------------------------------------


Zato looked up when he heard footsteps and saw Andy coming back from the meeting.


“How wasss it?” Zato asked.


“We fight tomorrow. But Shadic thinks I shouldn’t fight because of my wound.”


“It keepsss reopening. You have to keep that in mind.”


“I know it does. But I will fight if it’s the last thing I do.”


Zato used his tail and wrapped it around Andy’s body before holding him close to his body for warmth.


“I will fight with you guysss…” Zato said.


“Zato no! It’s best that you hide! I’d rather you not get hurt,” Andy said.


“Too late. I’m fighting to protect you,” Zato said.


“... You’re way too stubborn. There’s no changing your mind is there?”


“No. I’ll fight with your group.” Zato yawned and rested his head on Andy’s shoulder.


Andy chuckled a bit and pat Zato’s head gently.


“Get some rest okay?” Andy said.


“Sssame with you…” Zato murmured as he fell asleep.


Andy smiled and looked up at the moon. Though he knew he could not sleep that night. He just stared up at the almost full moon before glancing at Shadic’s tent as the light went out there.


“Use your full power…” Andy whispered.


----------------------------


Paula watched as the sun just barely peeked out over the horizon. She gripped her necklace tightly, becoming tense, “...Go, they will need you.”


Three of the four charms glowed brightly then became dim and gray. They began cracking and eventually broke apart.


Paula watched as three blue lights escaped from their prisons and hurried off into the forest. She fell to her knees, “...Please hurry…”


-----------------------------------------


The large and many leaves kept them hidden as the entire camp looked out on the castle that seemed just centimeters away now.


Violet turned to Tailsica and some others who were opening what looked like first aid kits, “Remember, do not leave this spot until the monsters have been eradicated. You can start treating men after that.”


They all nodded, and Shadic stood up, “Alright. Everyone ready.”

Sarah nodded, “I’ve got my bow ready and loaded.”

Violet scoffed, “I can take these mindless drones.”

Shadow crossed his arms, “If you are.


Andy glanced up at Zato, pulling out a sword, “Ready.”

Andy then turned his gaze to Shadic and tossed the sword towards him, “Catch.”

Shadic stared at him confused.


“I don’t really need it. I’ve got my powers after all. I’ll be fine.”


Shadic nodded, and turned back to the leafs in front of him, glaring at the castle, “...It’s time, on my go...read-”

“Just a sec there ace.”

All ears flicked up and gazes of all kinds turned to see three familiar figures standing there.


Shadow’s eyes widened in surprise, “Asurath, David...M-Margona…?!”


Margo smiled, “What? Did you really think we were gonna miss out on the fun?”

Sarah was the first to ask the big question, “But...how?!”

Asurath frowned, “Lights don’t go to spirit mountain. They are sealed somewhere else.”

“And where would that be?” Shadow asked.


“...The queen’s necklace.”

Shadic nearly fell over at that, “So...Paula...she’s alive…?! Where is she…?!”

Margo shook her head, “She’s hiding right now. Besides, we have more important matters Shadic.”


“I-I understand.”


Margo was almost tackled down as she felt a crushing hug on her side and looked to see Andy was the one doing so.


“I’M SO GLAD YOU’RE OKAY!!” Andy screamed, unaware that Margo was dead still.


“O-Of course I am Andy... I am always alright..” Margo said with a small smile.


“Andy... Control yourself.” Zato said.


Andy quickly let go of Margo and blushed badly in embarrassment before he went regretfully over to Zato so not to embarrass himself more.


Shadic spoke up after a moment, “I’m glad you guys are here. It wouldn’t be the same without you.”


“Of course.” David said, “I wouldn’t miss a fight.”


“Neither would we...” A new voice spoke up, everyone turned to see Gorse and Dark’s spirits walking up.


“D-Dad…?!”


“Hey son. Yes I’m dead. So don’t try to touch me or you’ll fall right through. Anyways. We came to lend a hand.” Dark indicated behind him to show an army of snarling werewolves.


“W-What..?!”


“The alpha died during the first attack. But. The Alpha bit you ,Shadic, along with the one that gave you the power to change into one.” Dark said.


“Wh-What do you mean…?!”


“Shadic,” Gorse said, “You are now the alpha werewolf. These werewolves are at your command.”


Shadic stayed dead still for a moment before he smirked and gave his sword to Shadow as his body turned fluffier. He fell onto all four limbs and snarled gleefully as his body turned more wolfish looking before he turned into a full werewolf.


“Good, at least you accept that,” Dark smirked and crossed his arms. He then turned to Sarah, “Oh by the way. You get a spirit to help out with your archery. I know you can hit a bullseye from a mile off, but that’s unmoving. You are gonna be moving today.”


“What do you mean?”


“Archer.” Gorse turned to reveal a strange spirit that no one had ever seen. He was in armor, but the air around that spirit showed he was not to be messed with, “One of the very first four lights. He will be your servant for the day.”


Sarah stayed still a moment before she grinned, it was like Christmas for her. “I accept.”


“Of course, Dark and I will be joining in the fight. We bring out the worst in each other, may as well make it a good thing.” Gorse said.


Shadic nodded, he could not speak in his werewolf form, but he was glad that his father was joining in the fight. Sarah quickly mounted on his back and got her bow ready.


She took his nod as a sign to give the command, “...CHARGE!!!”


There was no hesitation as every last person save for those who had been unpacking medical supplies charged at the castle.


It didn’t take long for the men on the other side to figure out they were under attack, and near billions of monsters were set against them.


Blood splattered and limbs flew, it was the most horrific thing anyone could have witnessed. Tailsica was watching just like the other medics, and began to cry.


When one was about to comfort her however, her eyes once again turned red and she growled. Before they could stop her, she was in the battlefield.


During all this, Shadow had already fought his way to the door. He tried to pick it with a paperclip but he turned when something hit his head.


He looked around, then down and saw keys. He picked them up, but looked up again to look for someone that could’ve thrown them.


That’s when he saw Tailsica, and she winked, “See you soon, this is my last battle using this body.”


He smiled, and quickly unlocked the door and headed inside. He knew it was going to be a while before he reached his target.


--------------------------------


Silver slowly walked up to the containment unit that held the thrashing ball of fire. He glared harshly at it, as he wound his hand back.


Swinging it with full force, he sent a wave of his power crashing through the glass confinement and growled as alarms began to go off.


Though over the loud noise of said alarms, he could hear screaming and shouting. He tensed, knowing Tailsica was out there with them, “...Good luck.”


---------------------------------


Shadow hurried down the surprisingly empty halls, traversing floor after floor until he finally reached his destination. He growled at the familiar figure just sitting on his throne seeming unconcerned.


“HellFrame…”


“Ah, so the little rat has come to end me once and for all. How tragic a fate indeed.”

He rolled his eyes in mock as he rested his cheek on a curled up fist. Shadow growled again, “I’m not playing around HellFrame. Or are you afraid to fight like a man?!”

“Oh no no no, it’s not like that at all Shadow. It’s just that...I have better things to do than fight filthy rats.”


“Joke while you can, your castle is under siege as we speak.”

“I noticed,” HellFrame said annoyed as a rumble caused a bit of dust to shake down from the ceiling.


He finally stood, sighing in annoyance, “Fine then. I’ll humour you, rat.”

“Hedgehog.”

“RAT. I’ll give you the first shot. But if you waste it, you’ll regret it dearly.”


Shadow smirked, “Oh contraire...I think you’ll be feeling a lot of regret real soon.”

HellFrame frowned, “Enough talk, if you’re going to kill me then come on and try it!”

Shadow growled, a red spear-like energy forming in his hand, “Vampire...SPEAR!!!”

-----------------------------------------


Tailsica carefully snuck in when it seemed no one was looking. She glanced around, “Let’s see, if I were a psychopathic plant woman where would I-”

A blast in the wall interrupted her sentence and she saw a familiar figure float out, “Silver? What’s he doing here?”

That’s when she noticed another hedgehog, or...monster of some sort. It looked like a hedgehog, but the figure itself seemed to be made of crystals.


Silver panted heavily, “Stay out of this Mephiles! Or else I’ll make sure there’ll be no body to find of you!”


Mephiles shook his head, “Sorry Silver, but I’m afraid your services are no longer required.”


With what seemed like a gentle tap on his head, Silver fell to the ground with a hard crash. He groaned in immense pain, and tried fruitlessly to get up.


Mephiles landed down in front of him, “Say goodnight, pest.”


Silver merely growled in response, but his eyes closed tightly as a purple ball of energy began forming on the tip of Mephiles’s finger.


He waited for a while, but when nothing happened, Silver opened his eyes and looked up, “...T?”

Tailsica shook her head, “Not exactly.”


“So it seems you remained after all, even after all I’ve done to get rid of you,” Mephiles said as he lowered his hand.


Silver growled, “You won’t get away with this! I’ll kill you just like I did before!”

“You never even managed to do that.”

Family Tree (Timeline B)
First off, I'm not saying this is cannon, that's up do all of you. But the circumstance is that during the war with HellFrame, they never went back in time and erased Iblis. So the lines kept going. Again. Not calling it official cannon. If you want, imagine it is. I'd love for you to make your own stories off of this. And don't worry, there'll be pictures of all these new characters soon.

Shadic slammed a Raccat against the wall while Sarah held onto his fur to keep from falling off his back, he instantly grabbed the squirming enemy’s head in his jaws and ripped off it’s head, causing an instant death to the beast.


“Grandpa I think you’re enjoying this too much!” Sarah exclaimed.


Shadic replied with a snarl, true, he did enjoy killing these things, but he had a reason to kill.


“Come on! There’s more I think I can shoot with Archer.”


Shadic swiped his tongue over his muzzle and let out a howl, long and low, this set the army of werewolves to become more violent to the enemy.


With a gleeful wolfish grin, Shadic ran off with Sarah on his back, slashing and biting any Raccat that came into his line of attack. Sarah continued to shoot arrows into the heads of targets, the help with Archer improved her aim immensely. 


-----------------------------------------


Andy was fighting next to Zato, the Naga was biting Raccats and leaving them writhing in agony, it only took Andy that moment to realize Zato was a poisonous Naga.


They were backed into a corner, Zato hissing in rage at Raccats that got close to him.


“Z-Zato what are we gonna do?!” Andy yelped, having only enough power to help finish the battle, but not enough to save themselves.


Zato seemed to think a moment before he smirked, “Your wife is a piecce of ssshit.”


Andy’s ears perked and his eyes turned red while black started to go to the whites of his eyes, “WHAT THE FUCK DID YOU JUST SAY?!”


“You heard me. A piece of ssshit.”


“WHY YOU LITTLE--” Andy’s voice mixed with one of the seven deadly sins, Zato instantly went out of his line of sight as Wrath took full control of Andy’s body.


It was only a matter of minutes before Andy’s entire body was soaked in blood and he stood over the bodies of Raccats. His eyes returned to normal and he breathed heavily. Zato slithered up to Andy and wrapped his tail around him.


“Good j-- AGH!!” Zato yelped in pain as he felt something stab his tail, he jerked his tail away from Andy and saw a sharp rock stabbed into him.


He looked to Andy in shock. Andy just glared at him, his face dripping with blood, “Never insult my wife again.”


Andy turned and stormed off, the very air around him saying that he wasn’t to be messed with. Zato hesitated before he took the rock out of his tail and quickly followed Andy.


“Andy… I’m ssssorry. We needed to get out of there…!”


“I don’t give a fuck. You insulted her!” Andy turned onto Zato and glared right into the Naga’s eyes.


“We may have fucked, but it doesn’t give you the right to insult my wife! Now learn to take a hint and leave me alone right now!” Andy snarled before turning away and walking away from Zato.


Zato stayed still for a long moment before he nodded, he understood Andy’s anger and knew it was only temporary, but just to be safe, he slithered off in a different direction to fight.


----------------------------


Gorse and Dark were fighting back to back, unarmed other than their fists even as spirits.


“Having fun prick?” Gorse asked as he shoved his thumbs into the eyes of a Raccat and tossing it aside.


“Oh you know it!” Dark exclaimed, punching a Raccat away from him.


They backed up to where their backs ran against each other, they glanced back at eachother then they smirked.


“Been a long time since we’ve used this move,” Dark chuckled facing a horde of Raccats.


“Think these spirit bodies can handle it?”


“Oh hell yeah.” Dark chuckled.


“Let’s do it.”


They pressed their backs together to where there was no space between them, they both closed their eyes as a glow formed around them both.


“Vampire….” Gorse whispered as the glow formed brighter, blinding the advancing Raccats.


Both their eyes opened and their colors both turned a deep  blood red, “COMBINE!!!” They screamed.


There was a bright flash, once again blinding the Raccats, when they looked they saw a man that looked like both Dark and Gorse at the same time.


Their bodies had merged together, creating a being more powerful than Dark and or Gorse alone. The being smirked.


“Ready for this Dark?” Said the being in Gorse’s voice.


“Hell yeah.” Dark replied.


The being jumped up before slamming back down with a massive stomp, causing the very ground to shake and crack underneath the Raccats. some fell into the ground only to have it close over them.


The Raccats screamed in fear and tried to run, but the combined Dark and Gorse attacked what was left, ripping out hearts and ripping off heads or limbs, whatever they could get to.


Eventually they cleared out enough Raccats to where they could stop attacking, they stood on the ground as a glow formed at their chest before consuming the entire body.


Once the glow faded, Gorse and Dark were standing next to each other. They turned to face each other and smirked before they gave a high five. 


“We still got it old man!” Gorse laughed.


“Fuck yeah we do!” Dark smirked, “Let’s go kill some more.”


“Agreed.”


Both men ran off into the middle of the battlefield.


------------------------------------------


Sarah and Shadic had finally managed to get into the castle, Shadic’s muzzle was now caked in blood but he found a puddle to get most of it off, turning the water red.


“Where are we...?” Sarah asked, “This doesn’t look like the castle I remember…”


Shadic let out a wolfish groan in reply, he was unsettled by the castle even though it was once his home. He slowly walked, the silence of the castle was unsettling compared to the noise that he had heard outside.


Sarah seemed to sense Shadic’s unease and gently pat his head, trying to keep him calm.


“Widow sweet… Widow sweet..” Sarah murmured.


They turned down a hall and instantly they saw Tailsica get slammed against a wall.


“AGH!!” She screamed and slid a couple inches before full on falling to the floor. She hit the ground hard.


Shadic let out a yelp and instantly ran to her, nuzzling his nose under her back before managing to slide her body on his shoulders with Sarah.


Sarah put a hand on Tailsica’s stomach to steady her, but she saw many wounds on the girl she had known since she was little.


“T-Tailsica…?”


The girl groaned and managed to roll over a bit on Shadic’s shoulders, “Not.. Exactly… Her.. Past.. Self..” Tailsica groaned.


Shadic turned his head and gently nuzzled her cheek as if he was trying to say not to push herself.


“Hn... Always caring for me and this body huh..? Good dog Shadic. One day you’ll get her...” Tailsica said slowly, trying not to use too much energy.


They heard another slam and they all looked to see Silver, but he looked different, almost glowing.


“Do you really think that trite cares for you?!” A voice said, they looked and saw Mephiles.


“I don’t… Care… She’s my friend…!” Silver growled, he looked over and saw Shadic with Tailsica and Sarah and directed his words to Tailsica.


“She can’t handle much more of this. Please stop.”


Tailsica seemed to hesitate a moment before her eyes turned blue and she passed out.


Shadic seemed frozen in pure shock, he didn’t even notice when black flames slid by him.


Riku appeared next to Mephiles, a dark chuckle escaping his form.


Shadic instantly seemed to snap out of it and he turned his gaze to Sarah, she read in his eyes that she needed to help Silver. She aimed her bow and arrow at Riku and fired, but the arrow went right through.


“Impossible!” Sarah gasped.


Riku let out a dark chuckle and dived into Silver’s body, causing Silver to stop glowing and scream in pain. He glanced over to Shadic and Sarah.


“GET...OUT!!”


Shadic stood there, frozen in pure fear.


“Witness as your ally disappears before your eyes!” Mephiles said gleefully.


Shadic stared in shock, for a wild moment he thought that the curse he had put on Silver was happening then and there, but then he saw Silver start to glow.


“I... WON’T… GIVE UP!!!” Silver screamed as his fur turned a golden color and his eyes turned red. Riku let out a scream of pain as he was pushed out of Silver’s body.


“S-Silver?!” Sarah exclaimed.


Silver looked to Sarah, “You should go on ahead, Shadic, get T to the camp. I’ll deal with this.”


Sarah picked up Tailsica quickly, putting the unconscious girl on Shadic’s back, “Come back as soon as you’re sure she’s safe. We’ll need you after the final phase of the plan.”


Shadic nodded and hurried, careful not to drop his friend as he went. Sarah waved at Silver, and quickly left.


“Oh you sent your friends away? How gutless.”

“How is that gutless?!” Silver growled

“Because...suicide is the coward’s way out.”


“Grr…! SHUT UP ALREADY!!”


“You will die this way Silver the hedgehog…. And It will be slow and painful…”


“You’re wrong. I didn’t get it before, but I do now. It’s how Shadow cares for this place and his friends. I didn’t want to get attached cause I thought I would lose someone again. But I was wrong.”

“Oh? What makes you say that?”

“...”

“...Wait a minute. Oh how rich! You’ve fallen in love with her! You fool! You know that I will kill her, just like I killed all your other dumb friends!” Mephiles laughed.


“No you won’t! I won’t let you hurt them! Not this time!”

"Oh? Are you going to try to stop me Silver? Because trust me...that is NOT a good idea."

"Mephiles...you were right that I've failed...you were right that Shadz will never truly be on our side...you were right that King Sonic can't handle this...this hellscape of war..."

"Hmm?"

"But...you were wrong when you said you would kill her, hurt them, or even erase this world. That won't happen. Because...I won't allow it!"

"You are nothing in the face of my power, I am a GOD!"

"Then quit yackin' and prove it to me!"

Mephiles growled, shooting a beam of dark power at Silver.

Silver smirked, "Hmph. This is gonna be a long day for you..."


--------------------------------

Elizabeth and Miranda just quietly chatted, trying hard to ignore the unbareable sounds and screams of the fight.

"So what do you think about Miss Cream?" Miranda asked.

"Well...she's actually really nice once you get to know her! She told me about what her life was like before all this."

"Oh really? What was it like?"

"She had this pet creature, called a 'chao?' And she used to garden and make flower crowns with her friends."

"That sounds lovely."

"Mmhm."

Suddenly, their heads glanced towards the entrance. At first, they had feared a Rauncher or Raccat had found them.

They calmed quickly when they saw it was only Shadic. However, their shock returned when they noticed Tailsica unconcious. "What happened?" Miranda asked gently.

Shadic gently lowered the girl to the soft ground and grunted. He glanced at the medical tent, and then ran off. Elizabeth seemed to understand and began dragging Tailsica into the tent.

Miranda helped shortly after, figuring out what Shadic was asking of them.

Elizabeth watched as Miranda began patching up her wounds, and stared out into the distance, "...I believe in you...grandpa...everyone..."

---------------------------------

"UGH!!" Shadow grunted, as he hit the wall. 

He growled and looked up, into the eyes of the madman behind all the years of torment, who had beaten him, tried countlessly to kill his friends, and whom had hurt the one he loved above all others.

"Give it up rat, you're no match for me."

"That's...where you're wrong...I just...didn't know it before..."

"What?"

"It's what's been keeping me...from dropping dead here really...aside from my...my..."

"Your true origin of vampiric power..."

"No...not a vampire...a demon...but...I'm not fighting for her...I'm...I'm fighting for him..."

"How pathetic. Fighting for the affection of one who cannot love you is a fate far worse than death indeed."

"That's...okay...wouldn't work out...with what's happened...recently...but even after all his stupidity, harming others even if not under his own will...I love him..."

"Shame that he will never know any of that," HellFrame said, stretching out an index finger as black energy formed.

Shadow growled, weakly trying to remove one of the rings around his wrist. Finally he got it loose, and without warning blasted a counter-active beam of energy, blasting HellFrame away.

He got up slowly, and removed the other ring with haste, "I'm not done with you...you...bastard...!"

HellFrame coughed, noticing blood as he did. He growled, "Damn...guess that old timer wasn't kidding...you ARE the ultimate lifeform..."

"No...that title belongs to someone else...I am Shadow. Shadow Avarcus Priddin, and with Aleena as my witness, you will be slain."

-----------------------------------

Silver cast a counter acting beam after Mephiles had stopped firing, catching the demon by surprise. He growled, "Why you...!"

"Save your breath, Mephiles. It'll save you from anymore humiliation today."

"You feckulant scum...! I'll kill you!"

"Wrong. It's YOU who will die today."

Without warning, he once again blasted a beam of energy at Mephiles, knocking him into a wall. Mephiles growled, pulling himself free from the debrie and began preparing another attack.

Silver scowled, "I don't think so Mephiles..."

Silently, he put two fingers on his forehead, seeming to be focusing on something. Just before Mephiles fired, he could just faintly hear Silver say, "Chaos..."

Once Mephiles fired, he noticed the ball of black energy stop, and he heard Silver cry out, "CONTROL!!"

Like that, the attack altogether was gone in a flash of light.

"What?! Impossible! How did you harness the power of chaos control?!"

Silver huffed, "Damn...it takes a lot outta ya...how does Shadz do it...?!"

He shook his head, and stood up, "Give up now Mephiles, and maybe I won't kill you."

Mephiles growled, "NEVER!!"

Silver smirked as Mephiles began forming another ball of black energy, "Heh...I was kinda hoping you would say that."

Slowly, Silver gathered his own energy to charge another beam to counter-act against Mephiles's attack. As he did so, he thought of everything that had been lost as a result of Mephiles's selfish desires. 

Then he thought of Tailsica, and sudddenly the power in the charge increased.

"Chaos..." Silver started.

"Chaos...!" Mephiles repeated.

"CANNON!!"

"INFERNO!!"

The two attacks clashed, and both tensed as it seemed their power was matched. 

Silver...

Silver's ears flicked up, "...Blaze...!"

Don't give up...we believe in you...

"...I won't...I can't...I have to protect her...and I won't let him hurt anyone else..."

Suddenly, something inside Silver snapped, and he cried out, "HE WILL BURN IN HELL FOR DARING TO LAY A FINGER ON MY FRIENDS!!!"

The power in his blast overpowered both Mephiles and his attack, and he began losing power. Soon he returned to his normal form, and began burning alive from the amount of light energy.

Silver scowled, "I get it now...it's not our power that makes us strong...it's what we fight for, and what we have to gain from stopping evils like you..."

Mephiles, even though he was suffering, chuckled, "You are a fool...you cannot erase evil...peace cannont reign forever..."

"Maybe you're right...but I will hold onto it for as long as I can...for my friends's sakes...for her sake...see you in hell, Mephiles..."

Light engulfed the room as Mephiles was eviserated by the blast. Once it had faded, he was not even dust, just nothing. Silver slowly lowered himself to the ground, and fell onto his hands and knees as his fur and eyes returned to normal.

"Ha...ha ha...it's...it's finally over...he's gone..." Silver groaned, still in pain from his wounds.

"Damn...he messed me up real bad...I should leave the rest to them...I gotta make sure she's okay..."

------------------------------------------------------------

Tailsica stirred, groaning. She couldn't remember anything after watching the battlefield. But she was in so much pain it didn't matter. She looked up, seeing a blur of white and a bit of amber until it cleared up. It was Silver.

She gasped, and tried to sit up, but flinched from the massive pain. Silver quickly made her lay back down, "You're still hurt....just stay still. I disposed of Mephiles, but Iblis escaped my grasp. Your friends are still fighting, but I wanted to make sure you were okay..."

Tailsica giggled, "I-I'm fine...really...I've spaced out before..."

"Heh...yeah right...you're covered in blood..."

"I-It's nothing..."

Silver suddenly frowned and blushed, "L-Listen...about the other night...I-I-"

"It's okay Silver..."

"Huh?"

"I didn't mind..."

Silver smiled, but looked down frowning anyways.

"Hey..."

His ears flicked up, and he looked up at her.

"Don't look so glum. It doesn't suit you," she said, before booping his nose.

He blushed even more, and she just giggled. Silver smiled again, "You know, you never told me your real name."

"It's Tailsica."

"That's a beautiful name...I've heard in Fox clan language it means 'gentle butterfly.'"

She blushed as he took ahold of her hand. She smiled at him, "Thanks for coming back..."

"I'd never leave you behind."

Slowly, despite the pain, she sat up once more and pulled him into a hug. He blushed, hugging her back gently. 

She nuzzled the fur on his chest, and fell asleep. He smiled and kissed her on the head, laying her back down, "Sweet dreams T..."

--------------------------------------------------------------

HellFrame coughed up another puddle of blood, and growled, "Fuckin' brat...just kill me already..."

Shadow spit in his face, and removed his other ring, "With pleasure..." 

As he removed the ring, it revealed some sort of gadget underneath. He flipped open the lid, "Come in, Shadic, Andy, anyone that might still be in the castle. Evacuate now. I repeat, evacuate! I am commencing the final phase!"

With that, he slammed the lid shut, and turned to HellFrame, "I'm comin' home...Terrisa..."

HellFrame sat in silence, as Shadow began glowing with red energy, "Vampire..."

"BLAST!!!"

---------------------------------------------------------------

Sam was sleeping beside his master, when his ears flicked up. He saw a large beam of light over the trees, and nudged his master till he awoke.

Talon groaned, "Sam...what the hell are you-" 

When he saw the blast, he knew well who it was, "Oh no...leave the supplies! We have to get there right now!"

Sam nodded and ran ahead, as his master followed.

"No no no no no no no...!" Talon grumbled, hoping it wasn't too late.

---------------------------------------------------------------

Everyone outside the castle stared in horror and awe as a red light spewed out of the castle and began to engulf it. Andy gasped, "EVERYONE!! GET BACK!!!"

The blast had sent most of them flying by the time they could run away, and everyone laid still, waiting as the light from the blast faded.

The first one to rise was Sarah, noticing the mist and dust that covered the area. But she could clearly see debrie, what used to be HellFrame's castle was nothing more than ruins now.

Steadily, she moved over to her father, and shook him awake, "D-Daddy...get up...we have to..."

Andy's ears flicked up and he sat up, "Ooogh...where's Shadic...?"

"I donno, I haven't seen him yet."

"Shadic...? Shadic...?!"

"Calm down Andy...I'm fine...!"

They turned their heads as he got up from under some of the debrie, "I'm just so damn tired...that form takes a lot outta ya after so many years of not using it."

After a few minutes, they were able to gather everyone else that wasn't already killed in battle. Andy suddenly realised something, "W-Wait...where's Shadow...? Did he...did he make it...?!"

Shadic seemed mortified when he heard that, "Oh no...Sh-Shadow?! Shadow?!"

Sarah seemed on the brink of tears, "Oh no..."

But a groan emerged from one of the bigger piles of debrie. Without hesitation, Shadic hurried over to the noise and began digging out the source. He gasped and almost cried with relief and joy when he saw Shadow.

Shadow coughed up some blood, "Fuck...that really drained me...I feel like shit..."

Slowly, Shadic managed to pull him out, "Sh-Shad-"

"Shut up idiot...I...I'm not gonna make it..."

"Wh-What? What're you talking about...?!"

"My inhbitor rings...were...d-destroyed in the blast...that blast drained me of everything I had...I'm dying...Alex..."

His ears flicked up, and shook his head as tears formed in his eyes, "No...no no no...! It can't end like this...! This isn't fair...!"

The others just watched, trying not to let their emotions get the better of them.

"Life ain't fair now is it...I mean look at me...I couldn't get you no matter how hard I tried..."

"...You have me now..."

Shadow's ears flicked up, "...You can't return my feelings it's not possible...not now...not ever..."

"Shadow...I...I'm sorry I didn't-"

"DON'T...don't...don't you dare apologise...this isn't your fault...it's mine..."

"Wh-What're you talking about?! I-I'm the one that bit you, I-"

"You bit me because you were defending your father...that's my fault for attacking him..."

"Sh-Shadow..."

"Can you...forgive me for all this...?"

"...I-I...I do...I always did..."

Shadow smiled, "...idiot...but...I always loved that the most about you..."

"N-Nu...?"

His ears flicked up and his eyes widened at the familiar voice, "...no..."

Shadic looked up, sure enough, there stood Talon and his guardian Sam. 

Gently, and shaking, Talon went to the two and kneeled down to him, "No...you can't do this..."

"I'm sorry Talon...my son...I hope you can forgive me for leaving you like this..."

Talon hugged his father tightly, tears running down his cheeks, "No! No I won't! I won't! You can't leave me like this!"

Shadow weakly returned the gesture, "Shh...it's okay Talon...just know...I've always been proud of you..."

"Nu...please..."

"I love you...son..."

"I love you too dad...I love you too..."

"Alex...?"

Shadic's ears flicked up, "Wh-What is it...?"

"...Take care of her...and fix your mistake..."

Shadic's ears flattened, "...Y-Yes...of course..."

Eventually, Shadow went limp. Talon gasped, "N-Nu...? Nu...?! NU!!!" 

Everyone hung their heads in sadness, the fallen warrior had done so much for them over thousands of years, and now he was gone.

Shadic stood up, "...We have lost many loved ones today, but let me assure you...it was not in vain. Today, we've achieved something great with such sacrafices. We've claimed back our home. Our kingdom."

Everyone looked up still seeming unsure, "And from here on out...we will stand tall against all and any enemies that threaten to destroy our freedom! Because today...we have won!"

The crowd cheered, the remorse covered by joy.

-------------------------------------------------------

Silver sat up, waking from his slumber. He noticed a beam of light from far off in the distance as he looked out the entrance of the camp through the flap of Tailsica's tent.

"Whao!"

Suddenly he tensed, as he could sense a powerful energy, "...They found them..." 

He glanced back at his sleeping mate, and sighed, "I'll try to get back to you, but I can't promise anything..."

With haste, he rushed out, leaving Miranda and Elizabeth in confusion. 

--------------------------------------------------------

Sonic and Shadz waited impatiently as the chaos emeralds were carefully placed on the ground. They looked up when Silver flew down to them.

"About damn time," Shadz spat. 

Silver didn't acknownledge him, "Whatever. Do you have them?"

Sonic nodded, "Shadow located Iblis with his sensory power. You ready?"

"You kidding? Let's put this bastard back in hell where he belongs!"

The three put their hands out, as the emeralds glowed brightly. One by one, they glowed, and their fur began to change color.

Sonic and Silver opened their eyes, now red and full of determination. Slowly, the emeralds themselves turned gray, and began to crack. Finally, after absorbing all their power, they broke.

The three hedgehogs flew up. Shadz averted his eyes until he finally pointed, "By the lake, it's headed for the castle!"

"The castle?! We have to stop it!"

"Sonic! Go warn the others! We'll hold him off!"

Sonic nodded, "Right!"

Silver watched as he flew off towards the castle, or at least...what was left of it anyways.

-------------------------------------------------------------

Tailsica woke up, but was surprised to see Silver gone. She got up, and peeked out her tent, despite her wounds, "L-Lizzy...? Miranda...?"

"Miss Tailsica!" Elizabeth cried as she ran over to her, "What're you doing?! You need to rest!"

"S-Silver...where...where did he-"

"We don't know, he just up and left a while ago! You need to stay here and heal!"

"But I wanna help!"

Miranda piped up, "I know you wanna help, and we do too, but you need to stay here Miss Tailsica. It's not safe."

Tailsica sighed, and gave in, "Alright..."

Elizabeth smiled, "I hope he finds what he's looking for out there."

"Me too..."

------------------------------------------------------------

The crowd's cheering had long stopped as they prepared to gather the bodies for burial and head back to camp to gather those left behind. 

Shadic looked up, seeing a light out of the corner of his eye, and saw a yellow glowing figure headed towards them. He was about to order Sarah to shoot it, until he noticed it was only Sonic.

However, he looked different, he was yellow and his eyes were red instead of green, "King Sonic! What's going on?"

"You have to get back to your camp now! Iblis is still on the the loose!"

"Wh-What?!"

"It's best you guys sit this one out! We've gotta handle this one on our own!"

Shadic hesitated before nodding, "Alright...you heard the man! Hurry up!"

Without further question everyone hurried towards the camp sight.

Shadic turned to thank Sonic, but found he was already gone. He sighed, "This is gonna be a long day..."

------------------------------------------------------------

Tailsica stared worriedly, but her ears flicked up when she saw a hooded figure walk in. Miranda herself noticed this, "Um...who's there...?"

The figure lowered their hood, it was Paula. Miranda gasped, "The queen! Is it truly you...?!"

"Miranda...! Y-Yes child it's me...I apologise for being gone for so very long..."

"No no, don't be sorry. We've been okay your highness."

"Good, good."

Elizabeth stared from her tent, "Miss Miranda...who's that...?"

Paula looked up, instantly recognising the girl, "By the stars above...is that...is that you my child...?"

"Who're you...?"

"I am Queen Paulina Margona Ligginheath The Second, I am...I am your mother..."

"...M-My...mom...?"

Paula nodded. Elizabeth stared unbelieving at first, then, suddenly, she grinned and ran up to her mother, "MOMMY!!"

Paula caught her child in a sudden hug, and smiled, laughing, "Oh Lizzy my child! How I've missed you!"

Miranda smiled as well as Tailsica. It was a touching sight to see. However the moment was interrupted by a familiar voice, "Princess...?"

Paula turned around, seeing Shadic as well as the rest of the camp behind him, "...Papi..."

Shadic walked up to his daughter, his hands shaking, "It's...it's really you..."

Paula nodded, "I...I had to stay hidden...he wanted the power in my necklace...it would have ensured we never win had he gotten ahold of it."

Gently, she put her child down, and pulled Shadic into a hug, "I was so scared...they...they killed him papi..."

Shadic's eyes widened, and he hugged his daughter back tightly, "Oh princess...I'm sorry...it's all over now...at least...it will be soon."

She let go of him, a confused look on her face, "What do you mean?"

"LOOK OUT!!"

The survivors screamed and scattered into the camp in a panic. Tailsica ran out of her tent and looked outside, "Oh my god!

Silver, Sonic, and Shadz were all holding a monstrous creature that appeared to be made for fire back. Tailsica stared in fear, "Shadow...?"

Shadz looked back at her, "...It's her..."

Suddenly, Iblis pushed against them harder, noticing Shadz distracted. However, he kept him away from the camp, "GET BACK!!"

The survivors didn't question that order, including Tailsica and they all fled into their tents.

"Chaos...CANNON!!!"

With a sudden burst of energy Shadz managed to blast the beast back from the camp. He growled, taking off his inhibitor rings, "Sonic! Silver! Now!"

"Right!"

The three held their hands out, and in unison they cried, "Chaos...BLAST!!!"

A bright light engulfed the skies and soon the camp itself. Everyone soon found themselves unconcious, though not sure they would ever awake again.

-------------------------------------------------------------------

Tailsica opened her eyes, and turned to see Silver. She felt strange, until she looked down and realised she was floating, "What's going on...? Where are we...?"

Silver tensed, "We're moving through time...into...the past..."

"But...why...?"

A bright ball of light suddenly shown, "It's...Iblis...? N-No...Solaris..." 

They flinched as the light engulfed them.

-------------------------------------------------------------------

"Look, Elise. This is Solaris, the flame of hope."

"It's so beautiful...!"

"When the flame has grown large enough, our world will change. Solaris will allow us to control time and move through history. People will be able to recitfy past mistakes, and avoid bitter fate."

"Will we be able to see momma?"

"...Yes, Elise. We'll both be able to see your mother once again."

--------------------------------------------------------------------

Shadic awoke, noticing he was in a building of some sort. However, the only light was a tiny flame embedded in the wall. He got up, noticing others as well. Paula, Violet, Elizabeth, Tailsica, Silver, Sonic, Shadz, Andy, Sarah, Fiyo...

"Where are we...? What happened...?" Elizabeth groaned.

Silver stared at the small flame intently, "In the past. That flame...it's Iblis. Or at least, WAS Iblis."

Tailsica raised a brow in confusion, "I don't get it...why...? Why're we here...?"

Silver gently took the flame from out of the wall, and held it with his powers, "...Mephiles is the cause of all this devastation. But...he only exists because of Iblis. This past...is not your world's, it's mine..."

Violet chimed in, "So...we are on Mobious...?"

"Soleanna to be exact. There was an accident, involving Iblis growing out of control. The king sealed Iblis into the Princess, Elise. Mephiles was a product of Iblis's rampage. Mephiles had killed Sonic, and the Princess's tears released Iblis."

Everyone sat and listened in silence.

"We brought him back, but we failed to kill either Iblis or Mephiles. Mephiles began creating creatures of darkness, and placing them in your world. Why yours...? I'm not sure. He's the reason HellFrame existed."

"So you're saying...if we erase him now...none of this will have happened?" Shadic asked.

Silver nodded, "No one would have died, Shadow wouldn't even be in your world really...but some of you will not exist. Hell, Sonic, Shadz, and I? We will never meet you. Any of you."

Paula stood, "...Even if I do not exist...do not experience breath and life...I will do this so that no subject will ever have to suffer."

Elizabeth piped up as well, "I want to help everyone too!"

Sarah smiled, "...I guess...this is what we've been looking for right...? Peace...? A way to keep everyone from suffering...?"

Andy smiled as did Fiyo, "Yeah, I guess that is what we wanted isn't it...? Let's do it then."

Shadz crossed his arms, "It's up to you Silver..."

"I'm with you all the way Silvs!" Sonic said, giving him a thumbs up.

Violet just simply nodded. 

"Silver...?"

Silver's ears flicked up and he turned to the voice. His eyes met with his mate, and they grew saddened. She was crying. He walked up to her, "Tailsica..."

"This...this isn't fair...! I wanna stay with you...! I can't lose you too...!"

Silver gently wiped her tears away, and smiled, "You won't lose me...I promise no matter what...I'll find you."

Tailsica blushed, "Silver..."

"We'll do it together okay...?"

Tailsica nodded, and sniffled. Though they both hesitated for a moment, they blew out the flame, and the room went completely black.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Shadic laughed and blushed as he walked down the path, his hand intertwined with Tailsica's. The kids up ahead just a few meters playing a bit as they walked.

"You know, you really are a goofball Alex!"

"Yeah I know...!"

"Oi! Devin! Slow down!" Mercedes shouted, as she tackled Devin down and gave him a noogie. 

Tailsica huffed, "Hey! Play nice!"

Shadic just chuckled, "You're so cute when you're mad."

Her face went red, "Wha- am not!"

"Are tooo~!"

She pouted, looking away from him, "Aw c'mon hun! I was just playin' with ya!"

She smirked, "Lucky for you, you're also really cute."

Without warning, she pulled him into a kiss, ignoring the groaning of the disgusted kids.

Unknown to the family, a certain hedgehog was sitting on a ledge above them, watching. He smiled, and flew off, never to be seen again.
