Hello hello all you patrons, and welcome back to the manifold wonders of Sonichu.

Last time Chris-Chan Sonichu, Sarah Nicole Hammer, and Wes Iseli got (for the most part) over their stupid soap opera bullshit and agreed to stop the Evil that had been released with their Anchuent Hedgehog Powers. This Evil took the form of a giant golem in an Egyptian headdress, controlled by a talking purple Sno Cone named Count Graduon, who had cut a deal with the witch Mary Lee Walsh to carry him around in exchange for assistance in her own mission of “shattering hearts” (whatever that means). The Power Chus kicked the golem’s ass and sent both Graduon and Walsh packing (or, rather, just let them run away), but then in the Sub-Episode Chris tracked Walsh to her office and appeared to kill her.

I wonder what Giovanni and Hedgehog Of Color are up to?

Hello hello all you patrons, and welcome back to the wonderful world of Sonichu.

Last time actually a whole lot of plot-relevant shit went down. Chris and Sonichu discovered an ancient ruin (left behind by the Cherokees, of all people!) which contained magical pedestals capable of empowering Chris’s medallion to be able to turn him into Chris-Chan Sonichu and also giving him an expositional vision from the ancient Cherokee “king” he is apparently a reincarnation of.

By some weird coincidence Sarah, the girl Chris has a one-sided boner for, and Wes, the dude Chris has a one-sided hateboner for due to his having briefly dated Sarah when they were all in high school, are also reincarnations of ancient Amerindian (or in the case of Wes and his ‘Wasabi Clan’ heritage, possibly Japanese) leaders, and they too have hedgehog powers. They’re all prophecized to band together to defeat some kind of Ancient Evil that got released when Sonichu found the cave, but Wes is more interested in acquiring the Cherokian Crown, an artifact which Chris apparently briefly possessed and which has THE POWAH TO RULE THE WOOOOOORLD!!!!

He beat the tar out of Chris while the both of them were in hedgehog form and managed to swipe the Crown, but then Sarah showed up and nailed him to a tree with a lightning arrow.

-WARNING-
This episode of Sonichu contains potential flamebait in the form of vaguely racially-stereotypical characterization and also Chris doing weird things to try and ward off accusations of same.

Hello hello all you patrons, and welcome back to Sonichu!

Previously, we saw Team Rocket’s agent Naitsirhc attack a shopping mall with a Zapdos and get driven off by Sonichu. Then, there were a bunch of pointless and non-canonical strips that accomplished nothing. After that, Chris-Chan turned into Chris-Chan Sonichu and beat up a Jerkop who was trying to keep him from sexually harassing women at a mall.

Remind me again why it took an entire issue for all of this to happen?

Typo Cunter: 11

We continue on, then, with Sonichu Issue 1.

2314: Varren-Chasing Simulator: Unwanted Sychological Advisement — Chapter 4 Part 2

Title: Mass Effect: United Species Aliance [sic]
Author: Delfim the Black Kitsune
Media: Video Game
Topic: Mass Effect (and Sonic the Hedgehog and Star Trek???)
Genre: Sci-fi/Romance
URL: Chapter 4
Critiqued by: AdmiralSakai and Specialist Adrian Sevarra

Hello hello all you patrons, and welcome back to Mass Effect: United Species Aliance, the only Mass Effect Gary Stumanity ‘fic to be almost completely upstaged by the primary Stu’s pet varren.

Last time, Shepard and Delfim had a chat to deduce the blindingly obvious fact that having just been involved in a well-planned ambush by an organized and well-equipped force might indicate that somebody wishes the USA harm. Then Delfim and his harem-component XO had a conversation about underwear for no reason, and they got assigned to clear out a klixen nest on Tuchanka as a field test for their new MAKO. Normally I’d be flagging this as another excuse to be all “look at my tech, my tech is amaaaaazing!’ in our faces, but the previous Stu-masterbating scenes have all been so perfunctory in this thing that I suppose it’s really anybody’s guess.

In a dark, neglected broom closet, deep in the battle-scarred halls of RIFFCON, an irradiated corpse stirs to life. With a flash of green fire, its bullet-riddled carapace is replaced with a familiar utilitarian jumpsuit. Wordlessly, the janitor shuffles along, pushing his cleaning cart towards central command.

Spying a vacant terminal, he takes a seat an-

After was crowned ‘Princess of Friendship’, Twilight continues to balance her role, her friends, and something missing in her head. She had a vision about a black hedgehog named Shadow, who was awaited with her arrival, and was also having a certain feeling that Twilight will never return to her dimension.
