If you are looking for some great Sonic fanfiction then look no further.
Sonic started as a video game for the Sega console in 1991.
Sonic is one of the world’s best-known video game characters and the game has been immensely popular from the start.
With the popularity of the games, there was also an animated tv show created.
This is more of a children’s show but also a popular one.
And now with also 2 major Hollywood movies there never seems to come an end to the Sonic the Hedgehog era.
Along with the games, animated series, and movies, there is a whole world of Sonic fanfiction out there.
But in this post, I will be writing about some of the most popular Sonic fanfiction according to hits received in Archive Of Our Own.
Keep reading to find out more about some of these amazing and original stories.
1. The Lost Prince
In this story, Sonic finds out that he is the lost prince of Mobotropolis.
This of course has big consequences for his life, but also for that of his friends.
There are celebrations in the kingdom and Sonic needs to go there and attend them.
So he and his friends take to journey to Mobotropolis, coming in contact with many obstacles along the way.
The writer has been working on this story for many years.
And although it isn’t quite finished yet, you can still enjoy the 35 available chapters.
Over 50,000 hits make for a lot of people coming back to read this story.
2. Making Space
This story is based more on the 2020 movie than on the actual video games.
Sonic suddenly finds himself in possession of a big family.
He now has a mother and father and even a dog and some brothers.
But seeing how this is all new to Sonic, he does not know how to handle this family.
This comes with some funny misunderstandings and situations.
And it is all written in a very nice and easy-to-read manner.
This completed story about love, friendship, and family contains 15 chapters.
With over 45,000 hits it is one of the most popular Sonic fanfics out there.
3. 5 Times Sonic Caught Himself Before Calling Them ‘Mom & Dad’ and 1 Time He Didn’t Hold Back
This story is also based on the 2020 movie instead of just the video games.
Sonic is now living with Maddie and Tom and they all have to adjust to this situation.
Throughout the chapters, there are some amazing illustrations that are truly worth your time to check out.
It is an amazing and cute story about family life and everything that comes with it.
There are funny elements but also the discussion of fears, joy, etc.
Everything that happens in a real family, the writer has included in this story.
And this makes it very relatable.
This part of the “Family loading…Please wait” series is 7 chapters long.
Be sure to check out the rest as well.
In this story, we find a crossover between Sonic and My Hero Academia.
(Check out this post if you want to read about some incredible My Hero Academia fanfiction!)
It is a combination between a time travel story and a world travel story.
Sonic wakes up to find himself in a very different world than his own.
He is now In a world of heroes and villains, and even though he does not want to, has to pick a side.
Of course, Sonic chooses to be a hero, but he soon finds out that this is more work than he ever imagined.
He isn’t sure how to deal with being forced into a class and all the evilness surrounding him.
And he can’t get out of trouble just by running away very fast.
The story is well-written and fun for both fans of Sonic as My Hero Academia.
5. Pocket Hog AU
This one is based on the 2020 movie, but 10 years earlier.
Tom finds Sonic in Green Hills 10 years prior to the events in the first movie.
The writer puts into play what this would do to the timeline and if it will still trigger the events from the original movie.
Sonic is really just a baby in this story and of course, Tom is 10 years younger as well.
This obviously impacts the relationship even more than in the movies.
The story does contain a few spoilers for the movies, so keep that in mind when reading.
There are 6 chapters in total with 11456 words.
This makes it one of the shorter fanfics, but still very much worth your time.
6. A Problem of Paradoxical Proportions
This story is completely based on the video games.
Here we see all the characters we know like Silver, Shadow, Tails, and Eggman.
It starts out as a standard mission with Sonic and his friends trying to stop one of Eggman’s evil plans.
But it soon turns into something else completely.
And now Sonic and his friends have to deal with the aftermath.
The chapters all include some beautiful illustrations and they are just amazing on their own.
This is part 1 in a series called “Paradox AU” and it contains 4 parts so far.
If you want to know what happens next be sure to check out the rest of the series.
7. The Four Stages of Trauma Recovery, as told by Dr. A Burdett
This story is loosely based on the 2020 movie.
Tom and Maddie have adopted Sonic and are dealing with everything that comes after adopting an alien as your son.
They noticed Sonic was having some trouble adjusting so they went to see Dr. Burdett for therapy.
But of course, they can’t tell her everything about Sonic or where he is from.
So in this story, we basically follow the therapy sessions between Tom, Maddie, and Dr. Burdett where they discuss Sonic’s trauma and how to deal with this.
It is a story full of angst and descriptions of PTSD making it somewhat important to warn about these triggers.
But otherwise, it is a beautiful and loving story about two parents trying to help the son they love so much.
8. Welcome to The Parent of an Alien hedgehog Club
This story is also based on the movie but is set a few months after the ending of the movie.
Silver also shows up on earth and is adopted by Wade, making it so that Sonic isn’t the only alien hedgehog in town anymore.
When Silver and Wade finally settle in there comes Shadow out of nowhere.
So Wade takes Shadow in as well and finds himself a parent to not 1 but 2 alien hedgehogs.
All three of them soon find out what impact this has on all of their lives.
And it isn’t always easy to deal with this, but they try.
There are 23 chapters to this story and it is the first part in the “Whipple family (mis)adventures” series.
9. Chaos Barren
There has been an accident at an energy control and Sonic, Tails, Shadow, and Silver get together to see what has happened.
There they see younger versions of themselves but also of some of the other characters like Knuckles and Eggman.
And even though they are still young and small, this of course has big consequences.
The writer took some liberties in changing a few existing characters and adding new ones creating even a God of Chaos along the way.
This all makes for an original story that is really easy and fun to read.
Even though this story is over, there is still more to the series.
The Chaos Barren series continues with this world as it is left at the end of this story and is also worth the read.
10. Second Home
The story follows the 2020 movie and the writer also stated that they don’t know anything about the Sonic games.
Longclaw is inserted into this story as a very important part of the development of Sonic.
Sonic is living with Tom and Maddie and with the (re)appearance of Longclaw they get sucked into her mess.
There are some references to portals to other worlds and universes.
And it somehow feels more like a sci-fi story than the actual film does.
There are 13 chapters to the story and it has a bit of a sad ending with a cliffhanger.
So hopefully the writer will continue the story to find out what happens next.
