EEnE Z IDC Ch. 13: The Hedgehog of Clan LightningDrew's eyebrows arched at the hedgehog opposite of him. What made this orange hedgehog different from all the other furries he had met so far? Well, for one thing, even though he was male, he wore white pants and green shoes. Also, he seemed to specialize in elemental energy control, as he demonstrated when sparring with Zach when they found him.
Just how did they wind up with this new ally? Well, after a hard day's training in the gravity room, Tails and Amy came up with a plan for the fighters to improve their numbers, to compensate for the two dimensionally misplaced. Drew, Zach, and Eddy set out in the world, combing every area. Eventually, they found a forested area, where the orange hedgehog in question was busy fighting off other dead villains. They proved to be no match for him at all. Curious about his skill, Zach, the one who found him, had a quick spar, and was happy to lead the hedgehog back to base.
"I just don't get it..." Drew said. "Of all the fighters we could have fou
EEnE Z IDC Ch. 12: A Grand SlipCorey began to make his way up to the riverbank where Bambi and company were. As he was walking, Sonic, perched on his back, working as fast as he could in dislodging the porcupine's quills from Corey's rear end. Every time another one came loose, Corey would wince in pain somewhat. The whole time, Ronno continued to laugh and snort, not even coming close to trying to act composed.
"Are you alright?" Bambi asked, still looking at him.
"I've been through worse," Corey replied instinctively, without even thinking about it. Sonic smacked his forehead as he continued to work on the de-quilling of Corey's rump.
"Smooth one..." the hedgehog grumbled, now on the third to last quill. He gave that a sharp tug, dislodging it from the muscle.
"Wha--?" Corey whispered back. He then realized his error. Sure, it was true, as a Saiyan, he had been through hell and back, almost daily, but as a deer...how could he have said that. "Oh..."
"What are you whispering about?" Bambi asked. "And...uh, what cou
EEnE Z IDC Ch. 11: Strange Rules, Strange FeelingThe sun rose above the forest. Light danced off of what little snow was left in the forest. It all had melted overnight as the rain fell. Droplets of water dripped down from the soaked branches, which were still barren from the preceding winter. One of them dropped down, straight onto Corey's nose.
"Ah-ah-ah..." Corey said, sniffling a little. He tried to raise an arm to stop himself, but then remembered he was a deer, and could do nothing about it. In short, his situation was not a dream as he would have liked to believe; it was very real. "Choo!!"
He sneezed, waking himself up with a bit of grogginess in his eyes. Struggling to his feet, noting that it was far easier than yesterday, Corey staggered around, trying to wake himself up. In so doing, he accidentally kicked the still fast-asleep Sonic into a tree. Sonic woke up, not in much of a better mood than Corey was.
"What the huckleberry, Corey?!" Sonic asked, not even noticing something wrong with his speech. "You kicked me!"
EEnE Z IDC Ch. 10: Return of the Ginyus Pt 2Recoome and Ed had landed in another part of Angel Island, the Sandopolis Zone. The area looked like the Egyptian desert, including the pyramids that likely contained the sarcophagus of at least one of Knuckles' ancestors. Well, the one major exception is that the Sandopolis Zone had mountains as well.
"I'm going to enjoy wiping the floor with you, burrhead," taunted Recoome as he struck another pose, this time balancing on one leg while imitating a bird.
"I think it is you who will be dragged in the soap of defeat!" Ed countered, immediately transforming to a False Super Saiyan as his pupils disappeared and his power surged. Of course, just like his teammates, Recoome seemed completely unphased by the change.
"You think putting in white contacts will save you?" Recoome once again mocked. He leapt forward and kicked Ed in the neck. However, Ed was largely unaffected by the kick to the neck. Recoome and Ed went into an exchange of blows, Ed managing to land a great deal
EEnE Z IDC Ch. 9: Return of the Ginyus Pt 1Back in Corey's home universe, his cousins Drew and Zach were sparring with one another at their Super Saiyan transformations. Ed sparred with Knuckles while Eddy sparred with Shadow. Double-D made a clone of himself to spar with. The Eds used their False Super Saiyan transformations while the animals used their super forms.
Drew and Zach exchanged punches and kicks, flashes of gold and white coming from each impact point. Occasionally, one of the two would land a hit on the other. Finally, Drew smashed Zach towards the ground, but Zach recovered and launched himself at Drew to land a kick on his chin, followed by a fast kick to his stomach, but Drew managed to evade, leaving an afterimage in his place. As Zach's kick soared through the image, Drew caught Zach in a full nelson and began to piledrive him into the ground, spinning fast enough to leave a tornado in his wake.
"Primary Lotus!" Drew roared as he and Zach continued to spin towards the ground. Eventually, Zach was slammed into
EEnE Z IDC Ch. 8: The Gravity of the Situation"As I said before, my name is Corey." Corey began, not even caring if Oskuro knew him by name alone. "The hedgehog on my head is..." At this point, Sonic took over.
"Sonic," he began. However, just as quickly as he were about to continue, he realized that in this world, adding "the Hedgehog" to his name would be redundant, and quickly finished, "Never mind, just Sonic."
"Now then, who are the two of you?" Corey asked, for the moment forgetting about his power-up sequence. Thankfully, neither of them seemed to want to bring it up at that moment.
"I..." the female deer started. She seemed to be shaking off something, but that feeling soon faded as she continued: "I'm Faline..."
The male deer only just seemed to come to his senses. Corey knew his name already, having overheard the whole incident, but he didn't have to know that.
"Oh, right! I'm, uh, Bambi." he said, seeming to hang his head in a bit of an unspoken shame. At first, neither Corey nor Sonic really understood, but then Corey
EEnE Z IDC Ch. 7: An Antler in an Old WoundThe Saiyan stuck in a deer's body staggered forward, lead by a reluctant Sonic. Corey was going to teach that darker-colored fawn a lesson in common manners.
"You have no idea how much I deplore that behavior..." Corey continued through gritted teeth to his friend.
"Corey, you can't even walk right..." Sonic growled at him. Both stopped, however, when the target of Corey's quiet fury began to speak.
"Where you goin'?" He asked, a smile plastered on his face, obviously speaking his next words in jest. "Forest on fire?" There was an awkward silence as all considered his punchline. Eventually, everyone who wasn't the fawn mentally realized that was in horrific taste. However, it was the female fawn who spoke next.
"Who...are you?" she asked of the dark-colored fawn, voicing Corey's thoughts almost exactly. Since, well, she didn't sound angry about anything, while Corey would have voiced it more...angrily, to say the least. Remaining silent, Corey continued forward slowly, so that way if p
EEnE Z IDC Ch. 6: Knuckles' Ancestors' KnowledgeDrew, Zach, Ed, Edd and Eddy flew across vast miles of land towards Angel Island in silence. No one really had anything to say regarding this incident. But as they began to cross the ocean water, Edd finally spoke up.
"Where could they be in the multiverse?" Though this was more to himself than anything, Drew felt the need to comment.
"Hopefully, they're somewhere where their Ki attacks could at least be used properly. I just hope they didn't have to change species. After all, Oskuro said that even he had to follow dimensional rules." Drew spoke up. "Our problem should be trying to figure out where we can go from here."
"But we don't even have one of the Dimensional Stones!" interjected Eddy. "How can we try to stop this?" he pointed up to the sky, where the aurora borealis was still glowing strong.
"Maybe Knuckles has a solution," piped in Edd. "After all, he has an ancestor in the Master Emerald."
"And how do we even know if that information would be good?" Drew asked.
"Still think h
EEnE Z IDC Ch. 5: Dimensional Jump, New LookThe first thing Corey and Sonic were both thinking when the Negative Energy Ball was swallowing them up whole like a hungry shark can be said in one word:
"Shit!!!" the two had said, almost simultaneously. At this point, both of their energies had run dry as well, forcing them to revert back to normal. And yet, the two found themselves devoid of pain. They weren't even having out-of-body experiences, something that seemed odd to them at that moment. Suddenly, as the light filled their vision, and numbed every sense they had, it turned from purple to white. They suddenly started spinning, and that's when it became clear to them that they weren't dying just yet.
All at once, Sonic felt pain, but he wasn't sure what was happening to his body.
Corey felt an unpleasant sensation, all at once. His spine felt the most unpleasant sensation as it curved around and around, until it was no longer like the spine of a humanoid. He felt his arms and legs also change, but he was too much in such pain
