Edit: Thanks for all of your kind words and feedback! I'm new to Newgrounds, and so far I am loving all of you. (Btw, I am a girl--just fyi. :) Guilty of liking trance/techno.....)

Done for Sonic::Epilogue, back in the day. <3 Special thanks to Vanatom from deviantArt, who was so kind as to let me use his song, Break You Open (air edit)! This was actually timed to fit "Numb" by Linkin Park, and that version can be seen here: http://www.fuzzacademy.com/misc/se2.html . Anyway, hope you all enjoy. :)

Can you, like, post the "linkin park" version again plz???? Or it's not possible anymore?

Awww, I love this where tails kills sonic it's totally broke my bisexual heart. TT^TT

This right here sums up flawlessly how the internet and most unassuming people feel about this franchise. Snivly just injected Sonic with a serum that made him realize the horrors of the real world. At least that's what I can infer upon seeing this.

Even if you do make friends at some point, all it takes is for one confusingly tragic event to happen for the friendship to be shattered into pieces. Like the song says, "Are you bored with the life you created?" This applies to both people in real life you toss you away like garbage whenever they feel your purpose had been served, so to speak. You see it in America all the time, especially around fan circles.

This could also be an allegory to how the internet and most people who aren't fans of the franchise see Sonic, nothing but a pest that must be exterminated. And all the gross and horrid fan art that people see as being "official" certainly doesn't help things either.

Sorry if this is a little heavy, but I saw this animation years ago as a kid on a now defunct flash hosting site for Sonic flash games and animations. I never understood the true meaning behind this, but after relentlessly abuse from everyone in my personal life, it's almost frightening how well this applicable to the real world for something released on Newgrounds 15 years ago. Also, if you can, I'd recommend reading the fan comic this animation is based on with the same "Sonic Epilogue" name it's even more heartbreaking than this, honestly.

I remember crying like a baby when I watched this on Youtube and now I still feel bad this universe exists, need to be rewritten

Gosh the nostalgia! I remember see this animation on DeviantArt around 2011, and it was so sad and not sure if I cried ToT Now I see it and is beauty and sad but I see it with other eyes, I was 13 back then. So pretty, glad to see it again after long time
