It came as if from nowhere. The people of alt.fan.sonic-hedgehog couldn't prepare themselves for what was to happen that day. With this seemingly harmless post that was ignored by all, it became prophetic when later that day (June 24, 1998 to be exact) the first chapter in the legendry SONIC FIGHTS ROBOTNIK series came out. Known throughout the Sonic internet community for its references to Mountain "Due," Green Day, Furry everything, cybersex, and the word FOCK, it still lives on even though Sonic Fan hasn't been heard from since June 26, 2000. As Sonic Fan's official page has been dead due to xoom/nbci no longer existing as a "make your own webpage!" community, there hasn't been a central location to find the works of Sonic Fan.
I suppose I should make it clear that I am not Sonic Fan. I didn't write these stories. So in the immortal words of Sonic Fan, "ATTENTION: This is a good story so no bad coments please!"

So you may be thinking to yourself "What ever happened to Sonic Fan?" Unfortunately, I have no answer to give. But more than likely you're thinking "Was this guy for real?!" No one knows for sure except Sonic Fan himself. Some think that these stories were written by someone who was already a part of the AFSH community and was parodying the fanfiction of the day. Others believe that he was for real, and that he just didn't care what others said, perhaps using this negative publicity to his advantage, causing more people to read his work then would otherwise. Still others think that Sonic Fan was walking in the Great Forest one day and was struck by lighting, maintain the body of Princess Sally yet now having the head of Sonic the Hedgehog...wait, wrong person. Regardless, it has been years since Sonic Fan appeared, leaving his saga unfinished. Perhaps one day he will return, finish Shadowfox, and complete his tale. But until that day, the legend will endure. So in conclusion, I leave you with this...
