Hey everyone! So Shifter got its first flame the other day! It was AWESOME! (note the sarcasm people, note it!) Thank you, DramaQueen95! You really are just that, a drama queen.
I honestly don't understand flamers. I mean I get not liking a story and then offering constructive criticism, but flaming just seems like a waste of time. For one thing, if you don't like the story, why read it in the first place? And then why waste more of YOUR time telling me that you don't like my story and then start wasting MY time. I mean really, what is the point? If you don't like the story, don't read it, simple as that. You don't have waste your time and my time calling me a bitch and asking me if I'm egotistical or sadistic (which I don't get at all by the way). I don't really know about you, but I have better things to do with my time than read a bunch of whiny insults from some jackass that wants to feel better about themselves by anonymously bashing someone's work because they can't write their own damn story.
The review was removed and any future flames will meet the same fate. I do not have the time or the patients to deal with something so childish.
Now on another note, I'm sorry to everyone out there who is enjoying the story and has reviewed in a positive manner. This is, unfortunately, the last chapter of Shifter. So, without further adieu, ONWARD!

"Hurry up, man. The cops'll be here any second now!"
"You dumbass! It's not the cops we gotta worry about. It's that damn bat!"
"Shut up! We don't have time for you two to argue! Grab the crap and let's get the hell outta here!"
The three grabbed their bags before making a break for the door. As soon as they were outside the jewelry store, a child's voice cut them off.
"You guys are the loudest robbers I've ever seen! I mean you didn't even try to turn off the alarm!"
The three men cursed, frantically looking around and pulling out guns, as the voice cackled at their panic. When they finally decided to look up, they saw a hooded figure crouched on the roof of the jewelry store. Upon seeing that it wasn't the Bat the crooks gained some confidence. The first man stepped forward, gun aimed, safety off, at the figure.
"Who the hell are you?"
The figure jumped down, landing a few feet in front of them. No longer in the shadows, the figure pulled down her hood. The thugs gapped at what they saw, a girl that couldn't possibly be older than ten stood in front of them wearing a black full-body suit that covered everything from the neck down, fingers and feet included. A silver utility belt hung snuggly around her waist and a hooded, black cape wrapped around her shoulders. Her hair and eyes were as dark as the night sky, making the pale, ivory of her skin stand out. The men scoffed.
"Isn't a little late for you to be out, girly?"
The girl shrugged. "Meh. It's only eleven. 'Sides, I got time to kill before I have to meet back up with the big man."
"Yeah, whatever, kid." The third man growled, growing irritated with how much time they were wasting. "We don't really care who your boss is or who you are. Come on boys, we gotta bail." He turned to leave when a whip suddenly lash out wrapping around his ankle and pulling him to the ground. "What the hell?"
The men stared, paling as they saw the girl's arm morph back into its regular shape.
"Sorry," she said, not at all sounding like she meant it, "but the big man wouldn't be too happy if I let you guys go. You know how bosses are, but man, don't even get me started on the Bat." The thugs' eyes widened and the girl face-palmed. "I totally forgot to introduce myself! Sorry! I'm the Shifter, Batman's newest protégé. Now I know this isn't the best way to start a relationship and all, but I have to take you to jail now."
Needless to say, all of Gotham soon knew about the existence of this newest vigilante.
As Sophia entered the Batcave, she let her facial features shift back to normal, moonlight silver locks and crimson orbs replacing the midnight black. Nervously she turned to the silent Bat next to her.
"Soooooooo…how did I do?" she asked, rubbing her arm self-consciously.
Batman looked at her, eyes narrowing. "You left too many openings in your defense," Sophia winced, "but other than that you did well. For your first time out."
Sophia smiled and Robin threw an arm over her shoulders. "Well now it's officially official," he said, "Welcome to the Bat family."
Well that's the end. I know, it was short, but it is what it is. The next story in this universe will be called 'Talon' so look for it! Thanks so much to everyone who read my story! ^^
