The Free Scribes Gazette




We are only in our second month, and - wow - we already have over 175 threads and 1,300 posts! This forum is more eventful than Sonic X!


Well to be fair...there’s a lot more things more eventful than Sonic X.




We have been trying to reach out to various groups and through our new Social media platforms. We will personally be writing to many fans and fan groups out there, reaching out to them. If you guys have a suggestion of a person or group you want us to reach out please let us know. We are also focusing on our RP threads and creative writing threads to help encourage creative collaboration and conceptualization. The same goes to our WWYDD (What would you do differently) and our Reconstruction threads. Feel free to throw your hat into the ring and bolster your inspiration!


Site Updates:


The Twitter page is up and we’ve been following some more reputable fans and Voice Actors for Sonic. We even got a follow back from an Archie penciler! Facebook page is coming up soon. Our dArt page has been up for a month now and it’s currently barren. We ask you guys to post your stories and artwork you have posted on here onto the Free Scribes dArt page. Give all our pages a share!

F07E’s Art Section Update - More concept sketches by our resident artist F07E, this time he branches out by drawing a Studio Ghibli scene, giving a bit of justice to an infamous panel from Archie Sonic and he even has a few requests.




THAW - An intriguing thriller by Rick Tyger set in a similar alternate version of late-season 2 SatAM Mobius and its distant past that crosses over with the classic sci-fi masterpiece “The Thing.” A long-forgotten creature awakens from a frozen slumber to find a world no longer dominated by man, but instead with furry Mobians; this nightmare will “Make Robotnik look like the neighborhood ice cream man….”


Pain and Fear - A one-off story of the Traveller’s (Master) journey in the multiverse. Falling into the Archie universe, Master confronts Clove about a past resolution that she made and it’s shortsightedness. Unexpectedly, Traveller was confronted about a past event by Clove that made him question his outlook on her decision.


Freedom Dies With Me (chapter 1-4) - Plagued with guilt, Master is gifted one fleeting chance to redeem himself from ruining his now broken and barren world. To rectify his transgressions, Master finds Lilac the Dragon and Carol the Wildcat to prevent the bleak future he induced. But once there, Master gradually realizes he’s inadvertently repeating history. With a sinister plot involving the artifact known as the Kingdom Stones in jeopardy, Master may redeem himself yet.

Nice. :)

About the DA page, though. I WOULD have put my stuff on there, but it's not showing me the option, there's no button to add stuff to the group or anytihng. I guess I just don't have the proper clearances or something.

Whoops. That might have been my bad. I can fix it tonight
