The fighting is over, harmony is restored and life goes on.-Tikal the echidna.
I wasn't sure whether or not making an illustration or something special for Sonic's twentieth birthday.
I was feeling low for I dislike newest Sonic games and its storyline.
But, making remembrance of all those wonderful times I had playing those games, made me give it a try.
I have to say, even if I sound like a freak and I conffess I used to be (most of you know that!), I…conffess…I cried, I laughed, I smiled, I screamed, I felt, I dreamt…
I cannot tell either if Sonic Adventure came into my life when I was living the best stage in my childhood or if I really believed those amazing characters were real or if the story was so amazing I couldn't believe I was playing a game this good! Come on, I was just a child! I'm just a child…
Hehe, it's funny. I remember perfectly those times…
I used to play all day long at my grandmother's house while my sister and my two cousins were watching me surprised at the speed I grabbed those little rings. They loved to take care of my Chao on Mystic Ruins Garden.
We could have eggs with ketchup and fortified chocolate flavoured milk for breakfast everyday (yeah, that's disgusting for me now, but we used to like that!).
After having breakfast, I would immediately come back running to continue my game.
I remember I lost about 70 lives trying to defeat the Egg Viper. Oh, I can do it now without losing a ring!
And I also remember confussing Pachacamac with Tikal.
Tikal…I loved Tikal! I adore her!
I cannot give you a description of her. She simply is.
Big's story was the last one for me to finish. Froggy was so freaking difficult to catch! And I finally finished Sonic Adventure one or two years later.
You can imagine my face when I first saw (oh wait, I still do that!) Super Sonic's story cutscenes. And the final battle! And Perfect Chaos!!
Of course, one of my favourite scenes is this one: the ending scene from Sonic Adventure.
You know, when the credits are over.
Still, everytime I see on screen the names of Kaori Aso(h) or Elara Distler I can't help screaming.
I'm such a freak. I know.
But I wish some of you could understand that Tikal, Chaos, E-102 Gamma, Sonic, Knuckles, Amy, Tails, Doctor Robotnik, Shadow, Metal Sonic and more characters from our favourite blue hedgehog's universe have stolen my heart for real.The Adventure lives on!
Also, this is my entry for
