[Zootopia] Nick and Judy's Lunch Date
As with my last Zootopia chat-style submission, I have to post the actual content in the description (so I can use the chat icons) while the description will go here in the text box.
I got the idea for this last week and jotted it down.  It was inspired by a joke I heard from Rodney Dangerfield years ago, and I just built upon it to give it a setting and a suitable ending.
I used images of Bellwether in place of the generic waitress, primarily because using "waitress" text would look inconsistent with Nick and Judy's dialogue.  Although I hadn't planned this out, I now think that, considering Bellwether's speech and mannerisms, she could have been a waitress in another life.

[Sonic] The Last Frontier: Ch. 10
Sandy's outburst was more than enough to get the two dozen innocent bystanders in the foyer stopped in their tracks and looking right at us.  I could feel the weight of their judgmental glances.  The cops finished putting the cuffs on my wrists, and we were unceremoniously paraded out the door, down the front steps, and up the street.  The entire time, Sandy continued to struggle against her handcuffs.
"Please, ya gotta let us go.  Nobody got hurt.  It's all a big misunderstandin'!  Tell 'em, Sonic!"
Although she was right, I knew it'd be foolish to say something out loud that might be used against us at some later point.  I responded "Just keep quiet for now.  We'll get this sorted out," in a way that I hoped didn't sound critical.
I wasn't sure what to make of her expression, but thankfully, she heeded my warning, as we walked a total of four blocks from the capitol to a two-story red-brick building.  I had guessed it was a police station

[Zootopia] Nick and Judy's First Stakeout
The following was originally published as a journal entry on December 11, 2016, due to DeviantART's restrictions of using chat icons in text-based gallery submissions.  In the interest of preserving the upload so it isn't overwritten by the next journal entry, I am transferring it to the gallery, by posting the entire script in the comments field, and posting the Author's Comments here in this text box.  Everything below this line is taken from the original Author's Comments.
I first got the idea for writing this more than a week ago, or at least, the core premise of Nick and Judy being on a stakeout for the first time.  It was only when I decided to write it down that I fleshed out a bit of its details, particularly in the beginning to establish context.  I tried staying as close to their personalities as I believe they would be.
I am so thankful for DA's "Community Emoticons" feature, and the fact that there are so many chat icons of Nick and Judy to choose

[Sonic] The Last Frontier: Ch. 9
Sandy and I left Mr. Johnson’s office, keeping quiet until we were completely outside the building.
“That was unexpected,” I said.  “I didn’t really think we’d find out that much information from someone in the company.  Do you think he was being truthful?”
Sandy was still lost in thought.  “I honestly don’t know, Sonic, but it has got me thinkin’: maybe I was wrong to assume this was all the doing of the railroad folks.  I’m sure that’s part of it, but if the railroad’s buyin’ land from the gov’mint, then we’ve definitely gotta look into that next.”
Our next destination was the capitol building where the territory government was bound to conduct all its business.  Going there probably would’ve taken less time if we had spotted it on our previous outing, but since we didn’t have that foresight soon enough, we resorted to asking people on the

[Sonic] The Last Frontier: Ch. 8
During the course of the night, I found myself dreaming of my old life back in Knothole, with my friends, and all the times we shared, whether teaming up against Robotnik or just hanging out.  With every passing day in this new timeline, those memories began to slip away little by little, like I was watching all of it unfurl on a TV screen.  It gave me a sinking feeling in the pit of my stomach to think I would likely never see their faces again.  Here I was, stuck centuries in the past in a different part of the world, and the closest thing I had to a friend was the lonely gray squirrel that was curled up on the other side of the bed.  I could only imagine how she was feeling about all this, minding her own business in her quaint little frontier town until the notice came that threatened to erase her town from existence.  Somehow our quest for answers had taken these two strangers hundreds of miles away from that place, in an upscale city hotel, sleepin

Sonic...Sonic...wake up...
I heard what sounded like Sally Acorn's voice speaking to me.  But that couldn't be right, could it?  Wasn't I still...
"Sonic...GIT UP!"
I jolted awake, still lying there on the floor.  Sandy had been standing over me with her hands on her hips, before walking over to the window to throw open the curtains and flood my face with bright morning light.  I shielded my eyes and sat up, yawning.  I wasn't feeling nearly as rested as the previous morning; whether that was from being worn out by all the running yesterday, or if I had simply slept fewer hours, I wasn't sure.
"I'm sorry about that, Sandy.  Did I oversleep?" I mumbled.
She shook her head.  "No, but we ain't gonna git to the capital any time soon if we sleep the whole day away."
I gave her my pillow and bed sheet, and she made the bed neatly.  After gathering our belongings, we headed downstairs to leave, passing by the dining room where we saw the old squi

I have my favorites categorized. In one category, I put all the pictures from other artists that I've helped work on (usually by coloring). In another, I put pictures from artists that were created for me.

EDIT -- I should probably rephrase that last comment. Since writing this description, I've become a bit less...uptight about how I define a favorite. I'll add a picture to my favorites if it's something I believe is worth seeing again.

In a process that has taken me 22 months, and through the tedious submission of 2,629 applications (yes, over two thousand six hundred), I've finally been extended an offer for a new job!  So far, it's only been a verbal offer -- I've got to sign the written offer and complete a few more steps before it's official -- but it's still the news I've been waiting for.

Short of Christ himself coming into the world so long ago, this is the best Christmas gift I could hope to receive!  (And with that said, consider this journal an early Christmas greeting.)

Hey mjponso if it's not too much can I ask you a serious question about Sonamy?

I don't profess to be an expert on the pairing, by any means, but I can give you my personal thoughts.
What's your question?

I've been having a lot of trouble lately and felt like talking to a fellow fan. I do love the couple and understand that not everyone has to like it and I know it's not perfect, but do you ever feel like when it comes to the haters of the pairing or even Amy herself that maybe they are a too harsh on it?

From what I've seen, those who do not like Amy or the Sonamy pairing, seem to feel as strongly about it, as the supporters do.  I speculate that it's because of two reasons, and they're both the result of poor handling by SEGA writers.  Unlike most pairings, which (at best) get hints dropped in the games/comics/etc, Amy's feelings for Sonic are canon, and very visible.  Those affections have led to her being Flanderized (i.e. that's the only prominent quality of Amy), even in official media.  And the way Sonic, in official media, appears lukewarm about Amy's advances at best, causes some to reject the pairing outright.

Within this fandom, Sonamy remains my OTP.  Yes, I similarly recognize that it's not a pairing for everyone, nor is it flawless.  I support Sonamy because I like Amy and my hope is that some day, she will succeed in what she's been chasing after for all these years.  (It would be an awful disappointment for Amy to see all of her efforts be in vain.)  However, I don't see it realistically happening until both Sonic and Amy mature significantly (at least 10 years).
