Featured stories



A overexcited Tangle asks her fellow villagers in Spiral Hill Village for a race, but accidentally knocks into Ron's chili dog stand. Later on, Tangle is recovering at the Mineral Museum talking to her friend Jewel. Tangle explains to Jewel her past adventures and how her normal life in her village now looks boring.

Tangle suddenly notices a flash of an outline from the museum's door, resembling Sonic, being chased by blaster fire. Tangle rushes out of the door, seeing that it was Whisper that was the one that was firing.

Tangle catches up to Sonic, who tells her that Whisper is under control by Dr. Eggman through a control chip in her mask. Later on, Sonic purposefully stands in the alley, while Whisper is looking through her sights. The being that resembles Sonic lets his guise shift for a moment. Tangle ambushes Whisper taking off her mask, believing that she saved the day. Whisper tells her that her mask was not controlled.

Back at the mineral museum, Whisper reveals that it was the work of a shapeshifter called Mimic, who had a background history with Whisper, and that the reports of a Sonic-look-alike was performing bad deeds to discredit Sonic. Tangle becomes excited about having another adventure with Whisper, who responds with a simple no. However, Whisper gets persuaded otherwise by her companion wisps. Hearing a sound from the front door, Tangle opens the front door to reveal a dagger with a note embedded in it. The message is from Mimic, who reveals that they have been chasing each other in circles for too long, revealing his whereabouts.
