    This... is... a fanfic. A Fanfic of a video game called Sonic Forces. Yes... Sonic the Hedgehog. A story I was so disappointed with. So I re-wrote it. In a darker dramatic way. It starts off like the game... but after what happens to Sonic... It's all out of my head.
    I'm not the best writer in the world. I just want to know if it's any good or at least enjoyable. Like I said before, This is the First set of Chapters out of Four. The grand total word count is 164k words. Its all done and complete. I've been at this for about 2yrs trying to get it right.
    So thanks for reading/listening.
    WARNING!!! This is written with TEENS to ADULTS IN MIND. Language is UNCENSORED.
    In Context: Tails in this story is 16 yrs old. With that in mind. Sonic and everyone else are in their mid-twenties close to thirties. Reason for that is due to the tone of the story is Suspenseful Drama, Violence and Language. But don't worry they don't swear. Worst thing to come out of them is Damn. But... the OC's? Get ready to see that F-word quite a bit.
    The Story is a Drama first, Suspense and Action. In that order.
    Another thing is that there aren't any Wisps elemental weapons of power. The weaponry is typical weapons used in military. Knives, Pistols, Assault Rifles, Sniper Rifles, and Shotguns.
    Same goes for Super Powers. Sonic and Friends are still intact. Sonic super-fast, Tails can fly... etc, etc, but the OC's don't. They are just average nobodies trying to make a difference.
    The Sonic Cast is: Main: Sonic, Tails, Knuckles and Amy. Side Characters are: Silver, Vector, Espio and Charmie.
    The OC Cast is: Main: Chris(Hedgehog) Zeke(Wolf) Trish(Dalmatian) Barnett(Rabbit) Side Characters: Zander(Dalmatian) POS(Labrador) Eddie&Edward(Cat) and Lance(Kodiak Bear)

    When young couple Trey and Lauren bought their ground floor apartment in an old converted manor house in Derbyshire, the large cellar that came with it was a bonus. Or at least that was what they thought. Instead, what they found in the cellar would soon lead them to a terrifying adventure, resulting in them being suspected of a series of unexplained deaths. As they try to withstand scrutiny from the police as well as a secret Home Office team, they have to also wrestle with their own consciences. If the only way to save your loved one from a life in jail is to kill someone, would you do it?

    There shouldn't be many typos or grammatical issues as I'm a bit of a perfectionist, so I'd love people just to read the story, hopefully enjoy it, and feed back what they thought. Were there any plot holes, did the characters come across, was there anything you didn't like or thought could be better explained etc. Not quite sure what genre to put it in, would like help on that too!
