Well, with only three days until Christmas, here's my gift to you: the finale of The 10 Stages of Love!

It's that time again, guys, to wrap up the story and send it off with a hearty wave and a slight tear. What does the final chapter hold for our two star-crossed lovers? ;)

P.S Thank you so much to all of you who reviewed the last chapter! My reply should have arrived in your PM inbox! :D

Chapter 15

Once These Steps Are Complete

Oh, Cloud Nine was incredible. Exhilarating. Amazing. Brilliant.

Cloud Nine had taught Amy something: love was an addicting drug that you never wanted to come down from. Like any drug, being in love with Sonic the Hedgehog had side-effects, but Amy now knew that she would accept being rejected by Sonic for the next ten years — no, twenty years — if she could feel the ecstasy that she felt right now.

A couple of months ago, Cream had asked her: "Is love a good thing?" At the time, Amy had felt conflicted about her answer. She'd told Cream that love was a beautiful thing — it kept people together and gave them courage — but it didn't come without sacrifice.

In response to the same question, Blaze had said that love was a pleasurable weakness. It distracted people, confused their priorities and risked stability. But she'd also said that love could bring out the best in people. That love sometimes made miracles happen.

Rouge was less analytical about the subject. She simple said, "Love and attraction are two different things. With love, you've got more to lose. But attraction can only bring so much and it doesn't last forever. You've got to decide: are you happy with flitting about and not getting emotionally attached, or are you willing to risk everything?"

Surprisingly, Cream had even asked Shadow about the matter — predominantly because he'd been with Rouge when she'd been asked and he had now become privy to this kind of girl-talk, whether he liked it or not. That's what he got for becoming best friends with Rouge.

He'd taken an incredibly specific approach, what with not having many experiences with love himself. He'd actually used a dictionary definition to start it off — "An intense feeling of deep affection, or a romantic, sexual attachment to someone" — and he'd even begun to explain it scientifically.

"The lust is driven by sex hormones. Testosterone for males and oestrogen for females. Attraction is defined by adrenaline, dopamine and serotonin; the three main neurotransmitters of your body. And the attachment is a result of the hormones oxytocin and vasopressin, which creates the desire to stay together and have children. So it's an instinctual state, instead of an evolved philosophical trait."

Evidently, Shadow wasn't going to be a lovestruck poet any time soon.

But science couldn't even begin to describe the feeling that roamed Amy's body right now. The swooping drop in her stomach at random moments. The fresh case of butterflies that fluttered against her heart, whenever she spoke. The intense burning of cheeks that scorched anything that touched them. The insistent smile that refused to fade.

Oh, Cream. Love isn't good. It's fantastic.

Amy didn't know what to do. She wanted to stay enraptured in this feeling of bliss, with no one knowing, and squealing with delight in her own solitude - but that wasn't really an option. Sonic wouldn't want this to drag out; their friends would be far too curious. Oddly, the only thing the Blue Blur had been slow with was confessing his feelings for her. Then again, it didn't surprise her too much: this was Sonic, after all.

He'd admitted it now. He liked her. He'd told other people. It's always been you, Tails had said. Sonic the Hedgehog likes her.

"Okay, calm down, Amy," She told herself, attempting to walk down the street without attracting strange looks. No matter how much she wanted to, laughing and squealing needed to be done in private. It would look a little weird out in the open, "Just wait for him to tell you in person. To tell you that he likes you."

Amy allowed herself to quietly squeal. Her heart soared. She couldn't give a crap if someone saw. Heck, she wanted to shout it out loud and tell every person she passed!

She wondered how Sonic would go about telling her. As a slightly obsessed child, she might have fantasised about it... a couple of times. She'd envisaged a sunset scene, with light flooding across their features, somewhere calm and private. He'd take her in his arms and deliver the most beautiful speech, with his emerald eyes shining like they did when he was truly happy, and he'd kiss her.

Where would they go from there? Well, clearly, they'd need to spend more time together, before they declared anything serious (Amy blushed and giggled at the prospect of a romantic meal with Sonic). So they may need to pretend that nothing was going on. As much as she didn't want to lie to her friends, she was excited by the thought of a secret romance with Sonic.

The pink hedgehog tried to steady her breathing, smoothing her hands over her dress. Ooh, she was bursting with delight. How could she act composed when he finally did approach her? Knowing her, he'd open his mouth to speak and she'd fling her arm around his neck, exclaiming that she knew.

No, no. She needed to remain calm. He might not be ready to say anything yet — she couldn't assume that he'd tell her every time he opened his mouth. Amy needed to pretend that she knew nothing about it. If not for her sake, then for Tails'. Even Amy knew that Sonic would be annoyed with Tails, if he found out she knew.

Her thoughts roamed to the current whereabouts of her crush (Was it a crush, if the person apparently liked you back?). What was he doing? Running, most likely. Was he thinking about her too? Did he also feel as if he could lift off into the clouds.

Oh yes. Cloud Nine was a place that Amy did not want to leave.

On the other hand, Silver the Hedgehog would have agreed to go anywhere that didn't decrease the distance between himself and Sonic the Hedgehog.

Outrunning a famous hero acclaimed for his super speed was not as easy as Silver had anticipated. He never thought it would be easy, but he thought it would be easier than this.

His powers were having a major work-out — he already felt drained, mere minutes into dashing off — but Sonic easily flanked his side with a light grin. The royal-blue hedgehog loudly asked, "Yo, Silver. You know I'm not actually going to kill you, right?"

Silver felt tempted to yell something along the lines of "You'll never take me alive!" but he didn't actually say anything. Fleeing seemed like a good idea at the time, and he was damned if he was going to let Sonic give him an earful.

Oh good. Shadow was now on Silver's right side, also sporting a smirk, "Shall we make this a race? I need some entertainment."

Why are you so smug right now?! The psychokinetic hedgehog blew air out of his nose, angrily, and decided that he didn't deign to speak to someone who was enjoying his torment, or someone who might cause said torment.

Sonic chuckled, but he called out to Shadow, "Okay, seriously. Let's head back."

"What are you two — wait! Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaiiiiii!"

Sonic and Shadow grabbed Silver's arms, one each, and rocketed backwards. They both emitted a sonic boom, with only a second between them. Silver knew that his face had melted off and he was quite annoyed with the other two hedgehogs, to say the least. Their antics always resulted in him being affected, for some reason.

Silver finished having his heart-attack when they deposited him back to where he started. The two of them dropped their grip on his arms, but they didn't lose the sparkle of amusement in their eyes. Silver considered them the worst creatures alive, in his head, but he just simply glared.

"Was that you I heard screaming like a little girl, back then, Silver?" Rouge smirked at him, teasingly, as he blushed in anger, "Poor boy."

Blaze giggled, which made Silver remind himself to go into a huff later on. Right now, however, he needed to come up with a good comeback, "At least I managed to get further than two steps, when I make a run for it," Oh burn. He was proud of that one.

"Anyway," Sonic rolled his eyes. Silver, Rouge and the Chaotix had tried to run, with only the detectives being successful. Clearly, Sonic didn't deem them high enough on his hit-list to chase after. Lucky them, "I think it's pretty easy to see the ringleaders behind this scheme."

From what Silver could tell, Shadow and Cream were also forgiven. Only Rouge, Blaze and himself would be flayed alive for tampering with Sonic's love life, "Listen, Sonic, about the whole thing—"

"'Don't wanna know."

Blaze tried, "You should know that we only wanted to—"

"'Don't. Wanna. Know."

Even Rouge, "Hon, hear us out—"

"I just want to ask you one question," Sonic had never sounded so serious.

Where do you want to be buried, when I kill you? What song would you like at your funeral? Who do you want to read your eulogy? There were several questions which sprung to Silver's mind. He tentatively asked, "W-What is it?"

"How... How do I tell Amy that I'm sorry and I like her?"

They blinked.

"Wh-Wha-What?" Sounds tumbled from Silver's mouth, as his jaw became slack with shock.

"You're serious?" Blaze nearly squealed, as she wore a goofy smile that looked foreign on her normally regal and contained features. Rouge had just told them this, but hearing it from Sonic's own mouth... She hugged her arms around her torso, restraining the excitement, "You... You like her? Like-like her?"

Sonic was now incredibly fascinated with his sneakers, as he rubbed one against the ground in a small circle. His head was low, but Silver could see a blush splashing across his cheeks, "Yeah."

"Well, Big Blue," Rouge raised an eyebrow, glossed lips shining, "What took you so long?"

"'Doesn't mean I'm not angry as heck, okay?" Sonic grinned, pointing at them individually, to make sure that they got the message.

"I can live with any punishment, as long as you go and tell Amy this," Blaze promised, always keen to stick to her word. She eagerly awaited his response.

Sonic's enthusiasm wavered; his features lost their jovial ease. But he nodded, nonetheless, "I know. I'm just worried that it will go wrong. I don't want her to get hurt."

"I think she can handle herself just fine, honey," Rouge flung her hands on her hips with a knowing look, "I know what you're thinking. You don't want to hurt her and ruin your friendship. You also don't want Eggman to get a grasp of the situation. Well, newsflash: Amy Rose can take care of herself against both you and Eggman."

"You think so?"

"You don't need to be a hero all the time, Sonic," Silver stepped forward and placed a comforting hand on the Blue Blur's shoulder, "That's what real life is for. Taking a break from being all smiles and saving people. You might enjoy it more that way."

"You can do this, Mr Sonic!" Cream clasped her hands together and beamed up at him.

Blaze's eyes lit up with hope, whilst Rouge smacked a pat onto his shoulder, "Go get her, Tiger."

"Okay," Sonic took a deep breath in, puffing his chest out and releasing the air with a triumphant grin. He nodded at the group, before turning to the other two hedgehogs and asking, with a bashful wink, "Uh, you guys aren't still in love with Amy, right? Y'know, after all the flirting and dates and stuff..."

Shadow and Silver gave him lidded glares, with their arms folded across their chest, or their telekinetic hands on their hips, respectively.

Sonic laughed, "Okay, just makin' sure."

Movies seemed to convey an image of singing birds and rosy music for those in love. Amy didn't feel like that — it was more along the lines of sudden bursts of blushing and slight squealing fits. She clasped her hands together and squeezed, trying to let out her endless energy that was impossible to contain.

She had to admit, there were a couple of birds singing around her — unsurprisingly, as she was perched on a bench in the middle of Station Square's park. Her eyes wandered over patches of blooming flowers appearing amongst the grass, as she sighed in contentment.

Her feet swung underneath, of their own accord, and she felt like a little girl again. A certain carelessness and joy — she'd missed it.

The air was calm and so, when Amy felt her hair blow out from its careful style, she looked up and smiled as though the sun shone from her. Jade eyes sung their excitement, as they noticed a particular shade of blue.

"Sonic," She breathed, knowing that her heart-rate had just rocketed into space. He chuckled in response, mockingly tapping his foot and looking surprised.

"Oh, hey there! Fancy meeting you here," His grin radiated boyish charm, which she had watched mature over the years. She briefly wondered about her own development, before she patted the space next to her and silently asked him to sit with her.

Amy frowned when he shook his head, as he strolled past before catching her hand and pulling her up. Of course, she was now blushing and marvelled at their close proximity. Things had changed, remarkably, in the previous weeks.

Sonic kept hold of her hand, now reaching down and taking the other, before quietly speaking, "Amy, there's something I need to tell you," He swallowed, apparently struggling.

"Yeah?" Her heart had now soared beyond space.

"I've needed to tell you for a while now... a-and it's pretty important."

"What is it?"

"Amy, what I'm trying to say is—"

"Look out!"

She blinked and everything was gone.

The park, the flowers, the birds: gone. Amy was pressed against something, wondering what had just happened, wondering why her day-dream had to end, wondering why the butterflies had appeared again.

But one thing wasn't gone. Sonic hadn't gone. He wasn't holding her hands, but he was holding her in his arms, protectively shielding her from whatever it was that she needed to look out for.

"S-Sonic?" Amy's eyes roamed upwards, as her blood sparked. He grinned back at her, unfazed, but he still looked over her head at the apparent danger.

"Maybe venture into the dream world when Egghead's robots aren't attacking the city, eh, Amy?" Sonic retracted his arms, but he let them remain on her shoulders, still emitting a natural protectiveness. His muzzle spread into a cocky smirk, "Dreaming about me?"

Amy didn't bother to lie, because she was suddenly scooped up into his arms again, as he leapt backwards and distanced them from an explosion. She flung her arms around his neck and they shared a glance, suddenly captivated by the other's presence. It would have lasted longer, if another robot hadn't fired a missile at them.

"This is gettin' old," Sonic muttered to himself, setting her down on the ground and speedily telling Amy, "Listen, I'll take out the trash, then I'll be right back. Stay here. I don't want you getting hurt."

She was touched by the intensity of those emerald orbs of his, "Right. You be careful too, Sonic!"

"Heh, aren't I always?" He grinned, knowing full-well that he wasn't.

Amy Rose summoned her hammer, as the blue hedgehog dashed off into combat. Sonic had knowingly targeted the dangerous henchbots, leaving her with minions that she could easily handle. Still, she smacked them with full-force, telling them to think twice before interrupting her dreams.

Eggman wasn't in sight, but Sonic felt the need to trash-talk a few of his foes, and he snappily hurled insults at them, along with spin-dashes. The robots offered little in the way of amusement, but they were still more exciting than their broken remains. The Blue Blur kicked an Eggpawn's torso across the street, naturally feeling disappointed about the lack of thrilling adventure. Then he straightened up and remembered his other mission.

His ears perked up, hearing Amy's fighting shouts, as a grin pulled his mouth upwards. Emerald eyes sparkled as the final badnik was put out of action, and he felt a sense of pride bubble in his chest.

'Guess it's now or never...

"Phew!" She breathed out with a satisfied smile, as he jogged towards her, "That sure taught them, huh?"

"You bet! Nice fighting there, Amy. That hammer sure does come in handy," He'd been reacquainted with it many, many angry times, but her happy blush suggested that this would not be one of those times.

"Yeah, you'd better believe it! You need a phenomenal swing and I'll be there!" She burbled, cutely, as she soaked up Sonic's attention. But her emotions wavered at his serious expression, "Um, Sonic? What's wrong? You're usually really hyped-up after we've beaten Eggman."

Yep, you're right, Amy. But it's hard to be hyped, when you're sweatin' bullets over here.

"I'm fine," He answered, giving her more reason to worry. Sonic rubbed the back of his neck — his method of calming himself — before asking, "Can we, uh, talk for a bit?"

"S-Sure," She gestured at the distance, quietly asking, "Do you wanna head somewhere else, or grab a coffee, or...?"

"N-No," He grabbed her hand, making her jump in surprise. He had to do it now, or he'd back out, "Here's fine. But you need to hear something that I have to say."


"And I mean, I haven't got this big speech planned or anything..."


"...A-And I wish I did, 'cause it would be totally easier for me, and I'd make it all romantic for you, like you've always wanted. Yeah, as you can tell, I'm definitely not good with all this romantic stuff..." He was rambling. He knew what Tails would say: speak from your heart. That tactic usually worked — Sonic was a promoter of honesty. But how could he speak the truth, if his heart was doing laps at every waking moment? "...This is new to me. Everything. I've never done this before. Never... felt this way before."

She remained hopefully silent, with clasped hands and an expression that was kinda adorable. Being the taller of the two, Sonic lowered his head and realised just how close they were standing. Within kissing distance.

Well, actions speak louder than words, right?

"And what are you..." Amy broke her hands away, cautiously tucking her hair behind one ear, before letting her hands drop to her sides, "...feeling, right now?"

How am I supposed to put that into words? Amy always made it look so easy, but now that the roles were reversed, Sonic understood how hard it was to actually lay yourself out on full view, admitting your feelings. His stomach was clenched and, although he was experiencing these strange feelings of nerves, Sonic knew that it wasn't just because he was nervous.

This often happened when she was nearby.

Amy blushed under his stare, without exchanging words, and she turned her head away, sadly taking his silence as response. A gloved hand travelled up and caressed her cheek, and her eyes went wide as his lips met hers.

It was brief, but longing, and she found herself falling into his chest. He moved his hand away from her face, fingers delving into her hair, as the other held onto her shoulder. Her pulse was erratic, beating in her ears, even as he pulled away with a cute smile. Amy touched one hand to her cheek and felt the intense heat seep through.

Sonic — the smart-mouthed saviour of the world — was rendered speechless for a moment. Oh, boy, 'musta let my heart rule my head. If I'da known kissing her felt like that...

"So, u-uh..." He scratched his neck, grinning to make up for his nerves. His head took control of his mouth, once more, "D-Does that answer your question?"

"I, um, can't really r-remember what the question was," She admitted in a mumble, earning an appreciative laugh from Sonic, making her swoon even more at the beautiful sound.

"That good, huh?" His eyes sparkled. He was pleased.

Amy licked her lips and nodded, "It was... w-was... whoa."

"Whoa? Heh, not quite the reaction I wanted," He was suddenly back to his old self, but he was beaming and laughing at any chance he got. Amy felt a wave of light-headedness when she realised that he was like this because he'd kissed her, "I guess I'll have to do better, next time."

Her ears perked up and a smile threatened to burst across her face. Sonic couldn't help but grin right back, raising an eyebrow as she repeated, "Next time?"

He winked and felt better about the burning sensation across his cheeks, "That is, if you want a next time."

"Oh, I do!" She reeled in her enthusiasm with a slight cough. Sonic smirked. Heh, still playing hard to get, eh? S'kinda pretty downright cute, "I mean, are you asking for this to become... a thing? Maybe? Would you be... alright with that? K-Kissing me, I mean."

"Hmmm," He tapped his chin in mock-thought. As if it need an answer, "I think that's something that I can agree to."

"You know," She giggled ecstatically, stepping into his embrace. Somehow, that felt perfectly right for both of them, "This doesn't totally get you out of explaining. I still have a few questions about... well, this."

"I get that. I still have some questions about your little wooing scheme," He grinned again at her ever-growing blush. Sonic gingerly took her hand and laced his fingers through hers, "Let's do this slowly. One step at a time. So we don't miss out on anything. Deal?"

"Deal. You sure that slowing down is okay for you, Sonic the Hedgehog?" Amy pursed her lips and raised an eyebrow, trying and failing to copy Sonic's natural look of teasing.

He chuckled at her efforts, "I know, I know. But, for you, I'm willing to try."

A nearby Eggpawn burst into flames, crackling and melting within a few fiery seconds. It wasn't quite the fireworks that Amy was hoping for, but it was the next best thing.

(Two Months Later)

"Okay, Tails, hit me with your best shot!" Sonic the Hedgehog wore his trademark cocky grin, as his famous super speed allowed him to easily dodge the onslaught of attacking lasers.

"Oh, I won't — but my new self-activating motion-sensor laser will!" Miles 'Tails' Prower stood at the base of his new invention, watching eagerly as his best friend proved that he was a match for Tails' defences, freshly installed into the Typhoon. The hedgehog leapt from place to place, narrowly avoiding the beams. If the fastest thing alive was just about keeping up, then clearly the invention was a success.

"Gotta admit — ugh! — not bad, buddy!" Sonic rolled aside and hastily gave a thumbs-up, just as the laser canon spun and fired at his new position. Tails yelled out his gratitude, as his eyes followed Sonic, who bounced around with tireless energy.

However, the two heroes were not expecting guests, and both widened their eyes in panic as the Workshop door opened, with a voice calling out to them, "Sonic? Tails? Is it alright if I come in—?"

"Amy, no!" Tails froze over, knowing that his cries had been heard too late, as the pink hedgehog stepped into the room with an unsuspecting smile. She wavered when she laid eyes on the laser and tensed when it fired at her.

"Oh no you don't!" Sonic had already bundled into her arms, speeding out of the line of fire and once again saving her from impending doom (though this time the 'evil' genius behind it all was Tails, not Eggman). Sonic grinned at his relieved sidekick, who quickly shut the invention off and offered Amy a wobbly smile.

"I'm really sorry, Amy," The fox's shoulders drooped, "I'm so glad that you're not hurt."

"Hey, it's okay, Tails," She cheered up, instantaneously, and coyly raised an eyebrow at Sonic, "Luckily my boyfriend was there to make sure that I wasn't fried."

The blue hedgehog grinned with mutual attraction, fully aware that Amy Rose was still lying in his arms, "Well, I think I prefer you without first-degree burns."

"So that was your only reason for saving me, huh?" She playfully punched his shoulder, standing upright and brushing herself down, "Thanks a bunch!"

"Anytime! And you get way too much satisfaction out of calling me your boyfriend," Sonic let his hands fall onto his hips, rolling his eyes and winking at Tails.

"Well, it took long enough! It's not self-proclaimed anymore, is it?"

"Nope. It's Sonic-proclaimed now," With a speedy flourish, he grabbed her hand and spun her around in a secure hold, as he dipped her to the floor. Amy yelped in response, followed by an appreciatively loving giggle.

Tails sighed in content, watching the sparks fly, as he muttered to himself, "Jeez, and I thought Eggman's puns were bad!"

"Hey, that was a quality one-liner, lil' bro! Take some notes!" Sonic hadn't been completely blinded, as his ears pricked up and he stared at the fox with glowing intensity.

"I'm gonna have to agree with Tails on this one, Sonic," The pink hedgehog chuckled at his less-than-impressed expression, "Aww, I'm sorry, Sweetie..."

"Uh, nuh uh. No way. Don't Sweetie me," He held his hand over her face, mockingly keeping her from hugging him. Sonic stuck his nose in the air, ignoring both Tails' and Amy's laughter, "I'll take both me and my brilliant humour somewhere else, shall I? We know when we're not wanted..."

He couldn't keep up the hurt pretence for long and he soon bubbled up with escaped laughter. Sonic smiled back at their grinning faces, thankful for the two people that he cared for most. He felt tempted to pull them in for a tight hug, telling them how much he loved them in different ways — but he had never been the mushy type and he decided that they probably knew how he felt, anyway. It was as plain as day.

"So, other than testing out my new inventions, or — in your case, Amy — nearly getting hit by them, what are you two doing today?" Tails smiled, still fathoming the idea of Sonic and Amy as a couple. It felt foreign, but it felt right, "Is it date night?"

"Yup," Sonic answered, completely casual about the word, even though 'date' would have sent him running at 100mph, a while ago, "Nothing's booked, though. So whaddya fancy doing, Amy?"

"A movie?" She pondered aloud, "Dinner? I'm not too sure. Anything's fine with me, so long as I'm with you."

The lovey declarations didn't freak Sonic out anymore — he felt entirely unchained — and although he didn't usually seriously say them back, he responded with a smile and felt his chest go fuzzy.

Tails glumly replied, "'Hate to break it to you, but I've got a bad feeling about Eggman. He hasn't done anything in a while — I wouldn't bank on having an evening without some evil-plot-ruining."

"Ah, well in that case, I guess we'll have to go for a meal. Chow down on some gourmet delights and then burn off the calories, while we smash some bots," Sonic punched his fist into his palm, grinning at Amy, "Sound good to you?"

"You bet! Say, Tails, what about you? Anything interesting happen lately? Got anything planned?" Her eyes held a certain spark which, Sonic had learned, meant she was up to something.

His best friend shrugged, unknowing of the danger that his reply might send him into, "Uh, not really. I mean, Cream should be coming over, later on... but other than that, nope."

"Ahhh," Sonic raised an eyebrow, understanding what Amy was trying to hint at, "Some alone-time with Cream, eh? That's cool, bro — we'll be out of your hair and you two can catch up. Sounds nice. Romantic, even."

"What? Are you kidding me?" Tails began to stutter, something that Sonic interpreted as nerves, "N-No! She's j-just a friend! Cream is only coming 'round to help out with my inventions! Y-Yeah!"

"Uh huh," Amy stepped forward and slid her arm around Tails' shoulder, comfortingly, "C'mon, Tails, we know how you feel. Cream's a sweet girl and you're a handsome guy. It's only natural."

"Yeah, exactly," Sonic smirked at the pink hedgehog, "Although, keep talking about Tails' looks and I'll start thinking that you only pretended to crush on me to get to him."

Before Amy could defend herself, Tails stepped out of her grasp and adamantly shook his head, "Guys, don't be silly. I know what you're doing. Not. Going. To. Happen."

"Shame... she likes you. So I just thought, you know, it might be nice for you two to... ah, well, if you're suuuuure you don't like her..." Amy linked arms with Sonic, confidently leading him away as Tails dashed towards her.

"W-What?!… A-Amy! Wait! Are you sure? You're serious?"

The two hedgehog turned around again, with Sonic knowingly smiling at him and Amy instantly lighting up with glee, "Of course I'm sure! And of course I'm serious! I'm her best friend; I know this stuff. So are you gonna do something about it?"

"Well, I d-dunno… I'm not good with this kind of stuff!" Tails bashfully rubbed the back of his head, blushing a little, "I mean, I wouldn't even know how to go about it! This isn't science! I'm totally out of my depth here!"

"Well, you're in luck, my good ol' buddy ol' pal," Sonic jerked his thumb towards himself and Amy, "We just so happen to be pretty good experts in the world of romance. With a vast range of experience to back it up."

Amy beamed, "What could possibly go wrong?"


My, I seem to have put my foot in the door for a sequel ;) Will this tale be continued in the Tailream shipping, you ask?

...Not at the moment, no xD

But it is a possibility! I have a couple of other things that I'm working on at the moment and updates are still a-waiting (Please don't kill me, So, this is love? fans). However, I may consider it! I mean, c'mon, we all wanna see how the Sonamy couple turns out, don't we? ;)

All that's left for me to do is thank the AMAZING people who have reviewed, favourited, followed and read this story! Your support means the world to me and this would be nothing without you. Thank you.
