So if anyone wanted to get into this series but they felt couldn't due to the chapter length, that shouldn't be a problem anymore. I've also updated the previous chapters, just to clean things up a bit. With any luck, they'll be a bit easier to read.

    Anyhoo, Chapter 9 is done! It's up on Fanfiction net, as well as Archive as Chapters 20 and 21. This one is where things start to get dark. There's still fun to be had, certainly, but War Is Hell, and that's something that needs to be acknowledged. Suicide is Painless might as well be the theme song at this point, just to give you an idea of where this is heading. Honestly, I didn't expect it to turn out this way, but I'm kind of glad it did.

    Yaknow it never occured to me until now, but I wonder if SatAM was influenced by Hogan's Heroes and MASH? Anyway it's a good read so far, don't sell yourself short but cutting the chapters.

    Just an FYI, but I decided to split the bigger chapters up into smaller ones on FF.net after all. Just letting you all know.

    Anyhoo, Chapters 22, 23, and 24 were posted over the last several days. It's mostly just wrapping things up and hinting at things to come. But the next one should be a bit more interesting.

    'A Day in The Life of Tekno: Part 1' is up. (Chapter 25) It's Exactly What It Says on the Tin. This chapter is a bit experimental, being written as though it were taken from a character's journal and thus being done in a First Person POV. The idea is to help give some focus to a character who hasn't gotten much until now, and if this works out, I might do these sorts of Chapters more in the future, though it definitely wouldn't become a regular thing.

    Also, in case you couldn't tell, Tekno in this fic isn't exactly 'normal.' It's been built up to well enough ever since her debut, but it's the next Chapter that's finally going to make it plain just what's wrong with her. Though as someone who has the same thing she does, I wouldn't exactly call it 'wrong.' And she feels the same way. (Mostly. Even I have my doubts sometimes.)

    Right. Thanks to serendipity, A Day in the Life of Tekno: Part 2 (Chapter 26) is up. This Chapter sets up the Battle Bird Armada from Tails Adventure and the Archie Comics, but it mostly goes into Tekno's backstory, and it's finally revealed just what she's got: Asperger's Syndrome. No special, super-magical disease or affliction anything like that. Just Asperger's. And there's nothing wrong with that.

    Now, anyone who has read Sonic the Comic knows that Tekno did, in fact, not have Aspergers, and if this were Sonic the Comic, then I wouldn't even be touching this. But the thing is, Tekno's a character that never really did much for me. There was potential, sure, but they never did anything with it, instead just making her the one-note scientist and tech-person who goes on adventures with Amy. I'm aiming to rectify that, but I'm doing it in my own way.

    What I did was look at Tekno and say to myself, is there anything about her that could really be expanded on? And then I realized that for what we get of her, Tekno actually shares certain traits with that of a high-functioning aspie. Nothing overt, but it's there. Now, as for how I know this? Because I am one. And when you're an aspie, you tend to be able to hone in on characters that may or may not be aspies themselves, even if the writers didn't even intend to make them that way. And so, I saw the opportunity to give this version of Tekno the depth that the original one was lacking while also being able to write the kind of aspie you don't always never see in fiction. I also knew I had to let the reader know point-blank that she's an aspie, because nine times out of ten, they just aren't going to get it for sure unless you do so. And again, seeing as I'm an aspie, I'm a better authority on this subject than most.

    That said, that's not all that's going on in this Chapter. Most of it's about Tekno, but right at the end, we fully descend into MASH territory with one little word: FOODFIGHT! It's gonna be a hoot.

    A Day in the Life of Tekno: Part 3 (Chapter 27) is up, and sadly, the food fight wasn't quite as focused on as much as I thought it'd be. Maybe that's for the best. I can use MASH as a template, but that doesn't mean I have to copy it wholesale. In any case, half of this Chapter's about the foodfight, but the other half is about Rotor's past with a bit from Porker, as well Tekno starting to have some Character Development. Not sure just what the next Chapter's going to be, but regardless, things are gonna start heating up again in the next Chapter or two. Just when they do is gonna depend on what I do next.

    Hey there! Trap and Field, Part 1 (Chapter 29) is up, and it's got a doozy at the end. We also get a brief look at Eggman's past. AoSH fans are gonna have a field day.
