Who I Was, Who I Became, Who I Remain - The Real Darkness

Shadow, the name spoken of a half alien, a savior of Earth, but mostly a monster, maybe him with many others can live a new life in a new world and make new friends.

Prologue:The Party

"Oh come on, Shadow. It is your party." Sonic nudged my side and was speaking to me while everyone was enjoying themselves.

"Today is just a reminder of everything that happened on the ARK." I stated as I watched everyone party, talk and have fun.

Everyone was here:Knuckles, Rouge, Tails, Silver, Blaze, Omega, Espio, Amy, Cream and Cheese, Vanilla, and even Commander Tower was saying he would arrive. Only loud mouth Vector and annoying Charmy aren't here for obvious reasons.

"You might cheer up once you get your gift from me," Sonic said,"and from some others of us."

"Whatever, Faker." I said and walked over to Omega.

"Hello, Shadow. May I know how your day has been?" Omega asked.

"Crappy, just crappy. Have your parts been functioning correctly?" I questioned. Omega sometimes needed to have repairs.

"Affirmative, they have no need for repairs." He responded.

What to do now?

"Hey, Shadow! Let's open your presents and then we can all eat!" Amy shouted from across the room.

Sonic decided to throw a surprise birthday party for me and set it up while I was at GUN. It doesn't matter what my house looks like, I don't want stalkers over here, I'm looking at you.

I sighed and walked over to the table with a black and red disposable table cloth on it. I sat down on the end, shaking my head in embarrassment and frustration.

Omega handed me a gift.

"I made it myself with modifications. It should suit your needs." He stated.

I easily ripped the wrapping paper open and saw a wooden box, I opened it.

"Damn...." I said in awe and held up a polished, black with a red stripe, full metal M4. It had a red dot targeting system under its barrel.

"Thanks, Omega." Everyone was staring at me with fear or surprise. They all knew that me holding a gun was bad.

"You are welcome." He said and returned to a chair at the table.

Amy tossed me a red wrapped box.

"What did you get me rose..." I said in a somewhat happy tone as I set the M4 down on the table in front of me.

I ripped the paper off, opened a cardboard box and found a black tuxedo with red pen stripes.

"I know you'll look good in it. Especially when you go to see me and Sonic get married." Amy said with clasped hands and stared at Sonic.

"Good luck with that, Faker." I said with a smirk and set the clothing on to of the M4.

"Well, Shadow, here is my gift, Silver's, Knuckles', and Tails'." Sonic said and threw me a plain cardboard box that had a glow in it.

I opened it with a hanging mouth.

"You're joking, Sonic." I said.

"What is it? Silver wouldn't even tell me." Blaze asked.

"Well..take a look." I said and dug two chaos emeralds from my quills, the green and blue emeralds.

I then pulled out a cyan emerald, a yellow emerald, a purple emerald, and a silver one. Everyone gasped.

"No worries, I still have the red chaos emerald." Sonic said, putting everyone to rest.

"Who's next?" I asked, now eager for gifts.

Rouge handed me her gift from my right.

"Really...I guess I'll need it, though. Thanks Rouge." I said and pulled boxes of all kinds of ammo from a cardboard box with torn wrapping paper.

A flash of white happened in the whole room.

"What the heck?" Sonic said and took defensive posture as did many others and me.

A few moments later, we all settled down.

"Here, Shadow." Espio said and gave me his gift by walking to me.

"Okay...good mood break, Espio." I said and opened it.

I pulled out a huge windmill shuriken, it looked specially made with a slot for a chaos emerald in the middle of it.

"You plug a chaos emerald into it and it can charge chaos energy when you throw it, doing more damage and it will teleport back to you. I had tails help me engineer it." Espio explained.

"Thanks Espio, thanks Foxboy." I said and multiple flashes of white happened.

A portal then opened up and sucked us all in, including my gifts and the food as well as streamers and other objects.

We were all laying on a tiled floor in front of some winged unicorn with a purple coat, mane, and tail.

"What the hell is this?!" I said and everybody rose up from the floor except Cream and Cheese and Amy.

"The spell worked!" The winged unicorn exclaimed and clapped her hooves.

Stay calm

"Where are we? Amy!" Sonic overreacted and rushed to Amy. He did have a secret 'thing' for her.

"Blaze, you alright?" Silver walked over to Blaze, who was close to him and shared a kiss.

Knuckles put Cream on his shoulder and Tails picked up cheese.

"Where are we and who are you?!" I questioned and picked up my new M4 holding it at the weird creature.

I noticed that the food was all over the floor as well as my other presents were over the floor with party decorations.

"You're in Equestria and I'm Twilight Sparkle. I'm so excited to meet youuu." The creature said. It was obviously some kind of small horse, a pony.

"Hey, Faker, Silver, you hear that." I said and lowered the M4 and gathered my gifts.

I hid the chaos emeralds in my quills and made sure there were no rings lying anywhere. I always kept about 100 on me and Sonic kept at least twenty like all the others.

"Yea, we heard. But first thing first, we need to see if Amy, Cream, and Cheese are alright." Sonic said.

I walked over to Omega.

"Status report."

"No threats on this land, parts are fully functional, and no casualties." Omega reported.

"What an interesting bunch these...creatures are." I heard a motherly voice that instantly reminded me of Maria. I whipped around to see another winged unicorn with a white coat and a mutitude of colors in her mane that flowed.

"Hey, Sonic. The Master Emerald is here. Any ideas why?" Knuckles said. I saw him holding it behind me with the others around him.

"It controls the chaos emeralds, so it probably came here to preserve that control." Sonic guessed.

"What are you...things...and where are we?!" I demanded and held up the M4 to them. I had my normal GUN issued glock in my quills. Protocol.

"You are in Equestria, I am Princess Celestia and this is Princess Twilight Sparkle. We are alicorns and rulers of this land." The white alicorn answered.

Interrogations have changed my way of asking questions.

"Sonic, what happened?" Amy asked as she came to.

"Some odd place called Equestria in front of two alicorn princesses." Sonic said trying to sound calm.

Amy jumped up.

"Wait, WHAT?!" Amy was obviously freaking out.

Tails was trying to piece this together and figure it out.

Knuckles had that worried look on his face.

Espio was next to me talking with the new creatures.

Cream was out cold.

Cheese was now fluttering around Cream.

Sonic was busy with the group.

Amy was busy trying to regain her strength.

Omega is...doing nothing.

Silver is worried about Blaze.

Twilight was staring at Espio and me with curiosity and excitement.

Celestia was about to speak.

I was staying calm and keeping my defense up.

"We should chat about this down in the throne room." Celestia spoke.

Author's Note:
