When a man has done all he can, and finds his goals destroyed, he has two choices:
Try once more, or try something else.
The author of this journal, discovered some time ago in a forgotten library, chose a third option.
He was never the same.

Ah, this fic. This is definitely one of my favorite fics.

While the Robotnik I know is a slightly twisted madman that turns fuzzy creatures into easily destroyed robots, even the most evil of geniuses would grow weary after a lifetime of constant defeat. So the character is pretty spot-on, especially if you consider that Equestria has a sort of calming effect to it, either magically or just by the nature of it being a fairly peaceful place.

The only thing that bugs me somewhat, is the forced ponification. Though, whether or not this comparison was intentional, it does create an interesting parallel to the roboticization he inflicted on countless unwilling subjects during his lifetime. Of course, this may just be a coincidence.

Regardless, I enjoy this story. And I look forward to the sequel, and all of the answers that it shall (hopefully) bring.

The transformation was left controversial intentionally, although I did miss a chance to explain why he wasn't entirely freaked out.

It will be explained soon.

Thank you very much for your kind words. =)

Wile I think your writing skills are awesome and way better then mine I don't like this version of Robotnik.

Everyone has a preference. So long as I made you think about yours, then I call the work a success. Thanks for letting me know!

I read this story without really knowing much about the main character besides kinda attacking his robots in the Genesis games. By the 1/3 point this story had made me want to know more about him, not to mention finish reading the entire thing for sure. I'm not sure there's much higher praise one can give for a crossover fic!

High praise indeed, Cupcakes. I thank you sincerely.

This is...

Excellent. You really do deserve the praise you get for knowing how one writes - the journal was a perfect way to get this story across, which might have become cumbersome and awkward had it been done in another style. Definitely deserves a fave, definitely deserves the praise it got on EqD.

Ahah! Opportunity to fave this masterpiece.

Although if I may ask, what is this addendum you speak of?

A sequel, of course... where the details of Luna's actions come to light, and the aftereffects of her good intentions.
