The blog itself:
This is an independent blog that will RP with anyone, but it’s kind of stupid for me to even put this blog up here because this version of Sonic kind of… trigger-y, for lack of a better word. Following roughly the events of ~issue 231 of the comics, Ixis Naugus rules over Castle Acorn for five years before Mecha Sally [I’m keeping that name no matter what it turns out to be because yes] launches a coup d’etat on her creator, killing both Eggman and Sonic in the process… or does she?
[remember that word ‘trigger-y’? Yeah, because of that, I think I should put up a trigger warning for the rest of this.]
Mecha Sally takes Sonic as a prisoner of war, and as though being captured against his will by his former lover wasn’t enough torture, she then locks him up in a tiny cell in the deep underground chambers of the Eggman Empire. There, he can’t see the Sun, and he can’t run too much. She feeds him very little, lets him bathe only very regularly, and never lets him see the outside of his cell. Being a more sentient robot than she seems, Mecha Sally takes out her personal frustrations on the hedgehog, heals his wounds, then starts over again. This goes on for about a year until he finally snaps.
A year after that, and we have the Thing we see here. In order to come, he shuts his mind down completely and accepts the name that Sally has given him: “thing”. He worships the ground she walks on and takes pleasure out of the beatings he takes. In fact, he’s a rather happy person, since he enjoys the things his master does so much. He cannot remember any other life than the one he’s had with his master, and so cannot remember his name or even who Sally was before being roboticized. He only knows that he loves his master and that he can’t wait for her to get back.
And, as he has no reason to have any existential breakdowns anymore, and as his cell has limited internet access, he takes to making himself a blog to talk to all the other normal “things” out there and all their “masters”.
tl;dr: he’s Sonic, but he doesn’t remember a thing. He’s a masochist with a twisted view of the world, but he thinks viewpoint is normal. He doesn’t respond to the name “Sonic”, so do call him “Thing”, and if he calls you a “Thing”, don’t take offense to it. It’s the only thing he knows.
