Robert Brown and Francis Tolbert's Sonic Fanstuff


Back in August 1997, I stumbled across a page of Sonic fanfiction and found myself hooked. Since then, my best friend and I have been creating our own stories to share with the world. Below you will find our archive of stories, including our story arc "The Race for the Emeralds". Also included are pictures we have begun to draw of the characters we have introduced. Our e-mail is below if you want to contact us. Happy Reading!

The Chosen Ones
It's been eighteen months since we last posted a story, and almost that many years have passed on Mobius. A new generation is up and coming, and this story's sole purpose is to acquaint you with some of them. But who knows what the future holds for these "Chosen Ones". But don't worry; we won't take nearly as long before our next story. Thank you all for your great support to this point, and we hope it's been worth the wait.

Iridal's Tear
We've met the Chosen Ones and seen some of the changes that have occurred over the past seventeen years. But the single thing we get asked most about is that mysterious robed figure that's been appearing regularly. Well, your questions are about to be answered, and I'll say no more. Happy Reading!

Eternal Flame
The attack in the last story was a costly one, but only the next day does the aftermath become clear. As Sally tries to cope with the crisis, she remembers a trip she must make. But this trip turns out to be no vacation as Sally finds herself right in the middle of it all. What will become of her? Read and find out.

Magma Stone
The Freedom Fighters finally find out what's going on as well as who's behind it. But there's no rest for the weary as the Fallen Ones are determined to strike again. Can the Freedom Fighters stop them in time. Or more importantly, WILL they be the ones to stop them?

Training Trouble
The Chosen Ones might be destined to face the Fallen Ones, but after their last encounter it's become obvious to their parents just how much training they need. For the past month, the Freedom Fighters have put their children through every kind of torture, I mean training they could devise. Will it be enough for the future? Why don't you read and judge for yourself?

The Amulet of the Four Winds
An artifact that can recharge the Wind Emerald has been located in the ancient ruins of Maga. As the Chosen One retrace the steps of the Freedom Fighters, they try to stay one step ahead of the Fallen Ones. But just who's keeping ahead of who? That's the real question.

Licking Your Wounds
As the Chosen Ones heal from their battle wounds, two strangers show up in Mobotropolis. One is well known to the Freedom Fighters, yet the other is a complete mystery. Either way, their appearance is less than welcomed, and opens up scars all the citizens would rather have stayed closed. What are we talking about? You'll find out, as soon as you see who we're talking about.

Healing Chalice
The next artifact capable of recharging a Chaos Emerald has been found, but most of the Chosen Ones are still on restricted duty. Alicia takes advantage of that to try and make up for her imagined mistakes and recover the artifact herself. But the Fallen Ones want her to do just that. Why? And more importantly, what do they have planned for her?

Caving in to Anger
Alicia is having a bad day. No, forget that, a bad couple of weeks. Things have just been piling down on top of her more and more because of the choices she's made. But as with everyone, Alicia does have her breaking point. See what happens when that breaking point is reached, and Alicia is beyond reason. Will this lead to even more decisions she'll regret? Or will it all work out for the best?

Shattered Illusions
A great many illusions will be shattered this day...that of one's ancestors, one's friends, and even one's self. Will those who are affected be able to survive such startling revelations? And more importantly, what will others do who have orchestrated some of these things? You know how to find out.

The Power Stone
Some of the Chosen Ones' actions are coming back to haunt them, and an old friend comes bearing disturbing tidings. Couple that with the discovery of a surprising artifact and anything can happen. But then, do you expect any less?

The Curse of the Mother...
It's Sarah's birthday, her tenth one at that. She's looking forward to a magical day full of happiness and love. Unfortunately things don't go quite her way. With an artifact up for grabs and her parents in bad moods, it appears no one's noticed. Well, almost no one, but is that a good thing?

Revelations and Reunions - Part I
It's Christmastime once more on Mobius. The Freedom Fighters and Chosen Ones think they're safe because the Fallen Ones cannot operate on a day like today. Little do they know that another group, potentially even more dangerous than the Fallen Ones, is ready to make its move. Can they survive it, or will their complacency lead to their destruction? And amidst it all, one family gets the chance to be whole again.

Revelations and Reunions - Part II
The events of Christmas night were cold and calculated, now see what those actions have wrought. Will the reuniting of a family cause another one to fall apart? Or will everything that has happened only strengthen the bonds that everyone shares and forge new ones along the way? Either way, many questions will be answered here, though some answers may only lead to more questions.

The Best Laid Plans
It's finally happened. The Chosen Ones have struck a crippling blow against the Fallen Ones, so much so that they believe they can slack off a bit. This belief costs them greatly however as plans are set in motion that might have been better off laid to rest forever. But once in motion, they cannot be stopped. What will be the results of these plans? Prepare for a major power shift among all parties, as well as the revelation of some important history that a lot of people have been asking about. Enjoy it everyone, it's been a long time coming.

Trial by Fire
The time has come for Desirée to face her final training, but it is not as simple as that. The Kavenoff has long vowed revenge on Bunnie's ancestors for their last meeting, and now is the time to seek it. Even worse, all of the Chosen Ones are out of the palace, the perfect scenario for the Fallen Ones to retrieve a Fire artifact. A trial by fire indeed.

Darkness and Light
Emboldened by his recent success, the Unholy One splits his forces to try and retrieve both Shadow artifacts at once. But what his arrogance unleashes could spell doom not just for himself and his Fallen Ones, but for all of Mobius. Can anything survive the titanic clash that was fated to come from this? Read ahead and find out.
