Anonymous sent: im really sorry but i have a really bad eyesight, if its not too much trouble, could you post a bigger version of ian flynn's letter please? :c

Aaaa, it’s no problem at all!! It was even a strain for me to read, so I totally understand @A@;;

Here’s the bigger version!

So… I think I finally decided on my cosplay for Sonic Boom in a few weeks??

AND NOBODY WAS SURPRISED

I can’t help but notice that the response says his letter is condensed and that most of what’s shown is praise. I wonder if there was even more hard-hitting critique involved that we weren’t allowed to see.

THERE PROBABLY IS AND I AM SADDENED THAT WE CAN’T SEE IT

because wow I would have liked to see Ian Flynn tear a new one about the shitty old plots and Penders’ work without the fear of losing his job/maintaining professionalism dsfbsd

I’m sort of tempted to dig through more old Sonic comics to see if there’s any more letters from him or the current Sonic staff (or even well-known fans), but that means digging through old Sonic comics, so… nah

I was digging through Sonic 103 since I wanted to do a post poking fun at the fact that they did a Guardians of the Galaxy crossover before GotG was cool (though this was pre-2008 new team series), but then I came across the Sonic Grams

for those of you unfamiliar, Ian Potto was the screen name/alias for a certain current writer of the series

aka

IAN FLYNN WENT AND GAVE THE VERBAL JUSTICE TO RON LIM, KARL BOLLERS AND KEN PENDERS YEARS BEFORE HE STARTED ON THE COMIC

… okay, so maybe that’s an exaggeration (and the text is a bit hard to read), but seeing the dude who eventually put the Sonic comics into a new Golden Age commenting on the stuff from the Dark Ages from a fan’s point of view is pretty great

AND THE COSPLAY SPAM RESUMES since Tumblr was a dick last night and had to go down ugh

But here be more Jade from BBG Sakura Matsuri 2012! Might I say that the greenhouse there was an EXCELLENT spot for some photos, for obvious reasons :B

I was talking about old cosplays on Skype and I REMEMBERED THE JADE HARLEY ONE I DID FOR SAKURA MATSURI 2012

… I still think I make a hecka adorable Jade but I’d probably be swallowed in a crowd if I ever cosplayed her again at this point fsdkbsdk

I should make a list of ‘girls Sonic flirted with’ in AoSTH just for fun. Like, go episode by episode and take screenshots. I still think it was kinda cool for giving him fangirls because c’mon, a teenage boy that constantly saves the world?

DO IT FOR GREAT JUSTICE (because seriously, I’d be really interested to see that)

Though AoStH wasn’t the only canon to imply he had fangirls! Aside from… well, Amy, Mina pre-134 was pretty much a Sonic nut, and then there was issue 111 of Archie


but yeah, I CAN DEFINITELY AGREE THAT HIM HAVING GROUPIES MAKES A TON OF SENSE

though him wanting anything to do with them is another story ENTIRELY

Sonic x Scratch’s hand OTP

I’D SHIP IT

As someone who grew up with AoSTH Sonic being the Sonic I knew, yeah. He would pretty much make out with anything that had boobs and/or moved. He wasn’t picky.

HE WAS SPENDING HIS TIME WISELY BEFORE THEY THREW ALL THE OBLIGATORY LOVE INTERESTS AT HIM

because if he’s going to have ship wars started over him, BETTER MAKE THE BEST OF IT WHILE HE CAN
