Tails of the Old Republic


Chapter 001

Endar Spire –- Waking Up




Miles Prower's head throbbed. He felt dizzy and nausious, and his skin tingled. In fact, his whole body felt like it had been jammed into an electrical outlet.

 

'What had just happened?'

 

He sensed that he was lying down in bed, but Miles could feel it was not his bed; it was big enough for someone four times his size, and the bedding was of unusually high quality. He opened his eyes: darkness. In an instant, his natural night vision kicked in, and the Mobian fox could now see his surroundings. At least, he could see the ceiling. He saw a window, but the stars were totally alien to him, and they appeared to be moving. He tried lifting himself up, but a sharp pain pierced his skull, and his muscles burned in protest. Pain. The room seemed to swirl around him, and Miles "Tails" Prower drifted back into unconsciousness.

 

In his dreams, Miles saw himself fighting against Dr. Robotnik. Alone. It was six years ago, back during Team Sonic's visit to Planet Earth. He had just disarmed the 50-megaton-yield nuclear missile that threatened to destroy Station Square. Miles was only eight years old then, but he had to stop Robotnik. Alone. This was the pivotal moment in his life. No one was there to help him. No one was there to save him. It was just Robotnik and a tiny lump of orange fur that was scared out of his mind, despite his proclamations to the contrary. Alone. Miles remembered charging Robotnik's "Egg Walker" battle mech. He remembered trying to body-slam the cockpit, only to be electrocuted by the mech's electroplasmic shielding. He remembered the machine's flamethrowers stripping the fur from his skin. He remembered the bullets from the machine guns ripping through his flesh. Miles remembered dodging the hundreds of missiles hurled his direction, only to be knocked flat by their shockwaves. He remembered how raining bits of burning buildings and exploded cars fell on him, and how many times he was nearly squashed when the "Egg Walker" tried to step on him in the city streets. But for all his pain, for all the pieces of his body that were missing, for all the blood he lost, Miles remembered something else.

 

He won.

 

For all of his engineering genius, Dr. Robotnik often overlooked important details. His "Egg Walker" battle mech was no exception. Near the machine's "ankles" were bits of weakly armored circuitry that occasionally left themselves exposed after a "stomp attack". His shredded body was failing him, but Miles knew that was where he must strike. Miles focused all of his naturally-generated Chaos energy into his twin tails -- his namesakes -- and flattened them into razor-edged ribbons. Sharper than any sword crafted by Human or Mobian hands, Miles' Chaos-enhanced tails cut true, and the "Egg Walker" fell to the ground. And for all of two seconds -- the shield was down. Miles speared the cockpit with his tails, severing vital systems, and the "Eggman" was forced to flee his battle mech before it's power core detonated. Thrown aside by the blast, Miles lay in the middle of Main Street in a puddle of his own blood. Happy in the knowledge that he had saved Station Square, the fox waited for death to take him.

 

But death never came.

 

Miles had awoken in a full body cast in an undamaged hospital, surrounded by grateful Humans he alone had saved. The police had tried to stop them, but the mob of people wouldn't hear of it. They wanted to see their savior. One Human stood out: a young girl in a wheelchair named Helen. She actually had a Power Ring in her possession. Few people knew of their significance, and only Chaos wielders like Sonic, Tails, and Knuckles could actually use them. His limbs useless, Miles couldn't take it from her, so the girl placed it in his mouth. Instantly, the Power Ring flashed and was gone, and Miles' whole body glowed gold with raw Chaos energy. The body cast burned away, and the worst of Miles' injuries were healed. The crowd cheered at the momentary spectacle, and praised him for his heroism. Yes, he was a hero that day. Miles "Tails" Prower was now a hero, even if only thirty inches tall and eight years in the making. Sonic the Hedgehog, his best friend and older "brother" would be proud of him. And it wasn't the last time Miles put his life in jeopardy to save the people he cared about. He remembered the time--

 

CRASH!

 

A sudden jolt re-awoke Miles from his dreams. An alien alarm blared in his ears, and his bed bucked and heaved beneath him. Still dazed and disoriented, Miles tried to get up, but another jolt sent him sailing to the floor. Using his twin tails as counterbalances, Miles finally got to his feet. Outside the window, strange craft whizzed about, and colorful streaks of energy pulsed from their frames. His whole room shook, and the teenage fox fell to the floor once more. Clawing his way back to his bed, Miles shook the last of the cobwebs from his brain.

 

"What on Mobius... am I... on a spaceship?!"

Now a strapping young teenager, Miles "Tails" Prower finds himself in an alternate universe far, far away from Mobius and all of his friends. What good can come of this?

Thanks for letting me use it! :D

Um, yeah, OK. This is a crossover between "Sonic the Hedgehog" and "Knights of the Old Republic"

Don't ask what spawned this; I honestly don't know! :XD:

EDIT: Now I remember! I was thinking how Shadow's & Silver's "Chaos" powers reminded me of "The Force" from the Star Wars franchise, and since Tails is my all-time favorite Sonic character, I decided to write a crossover story.

Basically, "SEGA" Tails finds himself living the SW:KotOR game. Sonic and the other characters will not be joining him. Or will they? :D

My interpretation of Tails and the universe he comes from primarily stems from the mainline SEGA continuity:

Tails' Adventure,
Sonic 1, 2, 3, & K,
Sonic Adventure 1 & 2,
Sonic Heroes,
Shadow the Hedgehog,
Sonic Riders,
Sonic '06,
and Sonic Unleashed.

(Yes, I'm AWARE the last few games were less than spectacular. Get over it.)

Also expect references to AoStH, satAM, Sonic X, Archie, and Fleetway.

Rated "Web-14" for violence, mild language, & suggestive themes. Sorry furverts, no sleazy sex scenes between teen Tails here and other characters! :XD:

There's an easy navigation system in the "Author's Description" box, though, with [FIRST], [PREVIOUS], and [NEXT] buttons.

Perhaps I should put a full Table of Contents in each chapter's description box, though that would be more work to maintain as I add chapters. :shrug:

True, but it does help with stories in excess of 30 chapters. Of course a story this good deserves a title page and that could be used for the same purpose.

Hello there, as I've said, I shall grant you your wish for more inspiration, and begin my review marathon!

Anyway, this is a pretty good start, as the comments you've gathered on it ever since you uploaded it proves.

I'm not so used to short sentences, I admit, but it works well here. Someone with a headache won't be thinking really long sentences, so having the narrative the same way helps.

And like many others have said, calling back to Tails' Egg Walker fight is a great idea. In terms of game canon it is indeed his greatest moment, and it has never been surpassed since. (*almost inserts rant about Sonic Team not treating Tails properly but holds back just in time*) So making it clear that in your story, Tails has evolved from there since hints to the reader that Tails is gonna be awesome.

In terms of plot it is also fascinating since it is the classic 'how did I get here' mystery, and Tails is just as weirded out as the reader, since the dream flashback has shown that all that stuff is canon here, yet he's now on a spaceship.

This is a short chapter, and normally I would advise them to be longer, but, I don't know, it may not have hooked as many people if it were (as in, joined up with the next few chapters). Maybe it was a great decision after all.

Thanks for the review!

Yeah, Tails' battle against the Egg Walker was truly his greatest moment in the game series, followed closely by him avenging Sonic's apparent murder in SA2 (which was, btw, the basis for my one-shot fic, "Clash of the Titans")

I've really been disappointed in how SEGA has mishandled Tails' character, devolving from "badass bookworm" in SA1-SA2 to a borderline cowardly, physically inept twerp (I ranted about this in my review of Sonic Colors). The licensed media like the cartoons and comics haven't been any better.

So yeah, I definitely wanted to mold TotOR-Tails' character development after this point, and I'm glad people approved!

I would say the comics' current treatment of him is actually not bad. In #240 and #239, I think, he actually spindashes again. Too bad it's not a universal depiction.

Curious and intriguing so far. I liked the flashback bit where you really got into the mind of a tiny fox kit facing an towering metal giant that easily could have stomped him.

But my favourite part was when Helen gave him the ring, because she's one of my favourite characters from Sonic X. It felt right for her to be the one, because she's so sweet and caring, and with her blonde hair and blue eyes, kinda like a guardian angel for Tails, bringing something to heal him after all the hurt he suffered.

SQUEEE!!! You commented! :dance:
*dances in a very un-masculine manner*

*cough* Ahem.

I'm glad you liked the flashback scene. The last level and boss of Tails story from Sonic Adventure will always be a Crowning Moment of Awesome for me. Sonic Adventure really gave Tails some quality character development that later games would seem to take back from him. Tails will always be Sonic's faithful sidekick, but here, Tails showed he could kick Robotnik's fat ass just as well as Sonic could, even if it meant sacrificing himself.

I chose to use this moment as a flashback to help establish what I think Tails' character should be like. Still the child prodigy when it comes to physics and engineering, but able to apply the hurt when necessary.

Yes, I liked Helen, too. A lot more than Chris. Actually, when I wrote this, I had forgotten that Amy Rose was still around during the Egg Walker battle. Amy should have been the one with Tails in the hospital. Oh well.

Thanks for the feedback, and I hope you read on! :D

I also enjoyed Tails' part in the Sonic adventure games. :)

I think Amy could have worked too, she's somewhat like Helen in her own way. But if we can suspend our disbelief over whether or not Helen could have been in the right time and place, I still think she fits the scene better.

I've just read the two chapters that I commented on for now, but I will be back for more later!

Oh, I think I remember now what got me to cross Sonic and Star Wars:

I was thinking about how the Sonic characters' various "Chaos" abilities resembled the Jedi's "Force" abilities from the SW universe.

Then I started thinking about making Tails a Jedi, and wanted to use the "Old Republic" setting, and BOOM instant fanfic. :XD:
