Well my fan character started as a crappy amy recolor :no: and I used to think that KNCUCKLES was a girl when I first played SonicR. But I think the worst thing I did was shipping my fan character with Shadow *facepalm*
sorry if my english sucks :herocry:

I wear my Mario hat more often than my Sonic hat despite barely playing Mario games and sculpting my whole online identity around Sonic the Hedgehog.

My very first Sonic FC was a self-insert purple recolour of Sonic named Kitty the Hedgehog who was a failed clone of his created by Eggman, for some reason. She* was in love with Shadow and good friends with basically all the main cast, despite her bland "LAWL RANDOM XD" personality. She also wore a sweater, which is weird, because I hate wearing sweaters. I proceeded to make several more crappy fanchars in a similar fashion, though slowly many of them evolved into decent characters, and the ones that didn't were scrapped. All but one of them aren't even Sonic related anymore.

Also, chao were once my top priority special interest, and I spent a family reunion talking about almost nothing but chao and confusing several of my relatives OTL|||

* I identified as female at the time, hence my self-insert being a girl

I used to run around the playground with my arms outstretched like Sonic does in SADX! Plus I used to quote Shaodw a lot when talking to people and make myself look...odd :walkback:

I never did make a Sonic OC because I was too focused on my Zelda OCs

I used to wear Sonic stuff all the time & guys at my school would yell "SHADOW'S BETTER!!" at me when I walked by. So I started yelling back "THAT FAKER DIED IN SA2!!!!" & "NOT IN THE CANON, HE GOT BUURRRRNED~" because as an adventure fan & couldnt handle the SEGA games I thought were gonna become non-canon once SA3 came out & proved Shadow died falling to earth from the space colony ark. I eventually became a Scourge fan as soon as issue 161 from the comics came out & then got into fights with those same guys over such a silly thing. I was like "ALL HAIL THE KING BABY, ONLY SCOURGIE CAN BEAT SONIC!! RESPECT~".
The teachers all thought I was being racist or something cause those guys were all mexicans & im white so I got sent to alternative school & dropped out of Jr. high. Maybe if I wasnt so addicted to playing S3&K & the adventure games i'd still be in school. :thinking:

Even as a Shadow fan, I kind of wish Sega had left his heroic sacrifice at the end of SA2 in-tact. Then again, the only post-Adventure game that I think made good use of Shadow story wise was Battle, but then again, Battle has one of, if not the best, stories throughout all the games.
Just so you know, I am blind.

I was a pretty all in all embarrassing in most aspects until college. I was pretty obsessed with the series in elementary school, so was my little brother.

We would draw fanart and OCs constantly, especially when our cousins would visit who were also into the Sonic series. These weren't bucket-fill digital recolors, but they were very unoriginal crayon/pencil characters that were always very badly drawn. I remember my cousin's main OC was a green Sonic 'recolor' with a katana named Zero X or something. Very specifically he had to look like Sonic, not Manic from Sonic Underground. He made this very clear. I don't remember much of the OCs my brother and I made, honestly. I remember my cousin's because that was the only one he had and I had to draw him quite often, hahaha. We had a few comic 'issues' with our OCs and some of the actual characters. I remember we convinced this same cousin that we made the Sonic the Hedgehog (US release 1999) movie? And he fully believed us?... I also stole his purple run neutral Chao because he was bad at taking care of them, and I felt bad for it. I still have him, hahahah.

My little brother and I would make 'movies' with our Sonic figures and stuffed animals on our tape recorder and make our friends and family watch them. We thought they were funny and 'random xD'. They were just your typical videos of kids playing with toys, though honestly. There was never any real plot, just them falling and 'fighting' usually. But we made a lot of these, and never overwrote the tapes, so we had a good few tapes filled with this.

Back to drawing the fanart and such. We made a lot. Mostly I made the stuff, either what I wanted done or what my brother wanted. Our two bedrooms were littered in the stuff. Practically any wall space we had was crayon doodled fiiled printer paper of Sonic fanart. We also made life size drawings of Sonic and Tails by taping paper together and cutting them out for our walls. I remember when I had my bunk bed, we ran out of wall and door space and ended up taping more on the ceiling where we could reach from the top bunk... I'd work on these at school, too. Even in elementary school the friends I had started making fun of my for 'only drawing Sonic stuff'. One of the reasons I left the fandom for a good many years was because of my friends making fun of me, honestly. I feel bad looking back on it, because my little brother wasn't bullied over it in his group of friends and I started ignoring him when he'd ask to play video games with me.

Speaking of video games. We would play Sonic games for hours. This is all before the Shadow the Hedgehog game was released. We'd play multiplayer on Sonic 2 and 3 for the Genesis for hours, not even racing... Just exploring the levels? Same with Sonic Adventure 2. We'd just spend hours exploring the maps and 'fighting', even on the racing maps. I remember we used to also randomly record our 'hacking skills' with that same tape recorder--we thought we'd become YouTube famous, but luckily we never actually uploaded anything.

Some other random stuff we did was pretended to be the characters quite often. Not exactly role playing, more just regular pretend. But we did this a lot. We also constantly begged out parents for more Sonic merch, and clothes. At one point we wanted matching Sonic and Tails hoodies? Like, my brother would have a blue hoodie with spines on it and I'd have an orange hoodie with two tails hanging off it. We told our dad we wanted to make them and my dad said we'd look stupid and that we should grow up a bit, hahahah. (Don't worry my dad is really a nice guy but he was always honest with us, he totally indulged out obsession with the series and played the games with us a lot, etc.) I also wanted to 'marry' Sonic for a while? Like he was practically my waifu hahahah. Hated Amy, Mina, and Sally and everything. Typical rabid 'fangirl' in that aspect. So bad.

But yeah, that's some of the weird stuff I can think of.
I recently got back into the fandom a bit. Started drawing and looking at fanart again and it's funny thinking about how the last time I really dedicated myself to it, I was using paper and crayons... I even made a new fancharacter, oh jeeze.

:no: There is no escape. We only ever come full-circle.

I had a crush on Sonic when I was ten up to my tween years. I drew a comic and made stories of human me and Sonic going on adventures and being in love. Of course Shadow was jealous and would kidnap me.

Geez...What a cringey child I was. I'm almost positive I ripped up those comics years ago. Hopefully...

Well...When I was little, I thought Blaze was Sonic's sister. I also thought Sonic Heroes was a TV show and I would watch the opening on YouTube every day. I listened to the Sonic X theme song until I memorized it. But the worst part of all: I used to think Sonic 06 was a good game. :no:

Ah, I have another addition to this. I still ship it, but I used to be a HARDCORE Shadilver shipper, and I have, er, a doujinshi that I drew of them when I was 13. It was... bad. Really bad. And also OOC. I don't show it to anyone, but I still have it as a reminder of my dark past of being an obnoxious fudanshi...

I post this because I just found it last week. Four pages of cringe.
