Hey everyone! I'm really excited to finally post the last chapter of Life of Spike! I think I accidentally deleted an innocent review, but I'm sure nobody'll mind. Now, I don't have a lot of time, so let's finish this series once and for all! Okay, let's get started!
It was a bright, sunny day. Everyone was peacefully walking on the streets of Retropolis. No creepy figures, no scary shadows, nothing. Everything was finally looking happy for once.
After the destruction of Barley's restaurant, Bull, Bibi and Crow helped him make a bar together. Now, the bar called Bull's had a skull with bull horns with a ring in its nose. Mr. P's hotel is doing great. Gale's cleaning got better and Mr. P even gave him promotions! Piper and Rico started dating and they fell in love with each other. Tara, Gene, and Sandy returned to rule their kingdom, in their palace in the middle of the desert. Brock began to grow in popularity, having a whole hip hop dancing group. Bea helped Rosa and Sprout with their experiments, plants, and animals. Penny, Darryl, and Tick continued looking for treasure and exploring islands. Speaking of, Leon, Nita, and Bo continued living on their island, hunting animals, and talking with spirits. Pam, Jessie, and Nani kept living in their house, and 8-Bit is now the mascot of an arcade! Mortis, Frank, and Emz still lived in the mansion. Sadly, Poco had many tours to attend but promised Emz they would meet again soon. Dynamike, Carl, and Jacky kept mining, looking for more mysterious crystals. El Primo continued his wrestles, and Max and Surge saved people from thieves.
Spike, Shelly, and Colt were walking through Retropolis. "Everything's so peaceful now!" said Colt. Spike nodded. "And it's really happy," said Shelly. "I wish it was always like this." Spike looked at Colt.
"I wanted to tell you something…"
"What is it?"
Colt gave her a dandelion bouquet. They were as yellow as Shelly's bandana. She looked at the red-haired boy, who was blushing. Spike stepped back, smiling. Shelly grabbed Colt and…
Colt turned red like his hair. He couldn't believe what just happened. Shelly giggled, blushing as well. Spike was so proud of them.
A few minutes later, Shelly and Colt sat on a bench, in complete silence. Spike thought they looked happy, so why not make them happier? He bought some candy floss and headed back to give it to them. "Oh," said Colt, snapping out from his thoughts. "Thanks!" Shelly and Colt started eating their candy floss, while Spike smiled.
Suddenly, he heard a scream from afar. He turned to check and someone was being robbed! Spike dashed to stop the robber. Luckily, the person escaped. The robber stared at Spike. He had a green vest, blue pants, a dark blue flower on his head, and dark green skin with scars. It was almost the same as Spike!
Spike was stunned in shock. His friends went to him to see what's going on. "What the…?" mumbled Shelly, as evil versions of them appeared. Shelly's counterpart had an eyepatch and a red bandana, while Colt's had black hair and wore a brown vest. The counterparts looked as confused as them.
"Are you us?" said the two Colts. The two Shellies squinted their eyes at each other. Spike looked at his evil version in confusion. How come they look so similar? "Where did you come from?" asked Shelly. The counterparts looked at each other. "I think we accidentally entered a parallel universe!" exclaimed Shelly's counterpart. "Wait," started Colt. "Why do you have edgy clothes?"
"We're bandits." replied the other Colt. Spike suddenly understood why his counterpart was robbing an innocent person. They're evil! His counterpart could tell what he was thinking, so he ran away. The rest of the counterparts ran as well. "We gotta catch them!" exclaimed Shelly. Colt groaned. "Why is being a hero so hard?"
After chasing them through the city, Shelly, Colt, and Spike took a rest. They've been running after them for 30 minutes now. Meanwhile, the counterparts had a little chat. "So, Spike did you steal anything good?" asked Shelly. Spike showed her a bag of stolen marshmallows. Shelly facepalmed. "It's okay, I'll eat them," said Colt, reaching for the bag. Spike pulled the bag away. "Aww…" Shelly glared at him. "I hate you."
Suddenly, evil Spike heard footsteps. The cactus with a purple vest pointed at the thieves. "Don't move!" said Colt and Shelly showing their guns. The counterparts grabbed their guns out, too.
They were staring at each other. Their guns were ready. All they had to do is push the trigger.
"Hey! There they are!" Suddenly, pirate versions of them appeared. Behind them, a portal was summoned, and many other versions of them came out. Rockstars, royal agents, soccer players, hip hop, and even witch versions of them stepped out with their weapons. "How dare you leave your respective universe!" said the witch versions. "You'll be arrested!" said the soccer versions. The rockstar and hip hop versions grabbed the evil versions. "You're coming with us!" said the royal agent versions. They left through the portal. Now it was just Spike, Shelly, and Colt.
"What an adventure!" exclaimed Colt. "So, who wants to go to an amusement park?" suggested Shelly. Spike cheered, as the three walked towards a new adventure.
Finally, I'm done! I'm so happy to end this. Okay, I got a review from SibelYourFriend but I can't really say anything but I forgive you. So, I'll start an Eddsworld fanfiction called Eddventures. If you're curious go check it out. Oh and thanks for reading all the way! I'm pretty sure most of my readers stopped reading. So, congrats! And as always, have a nice day! Or night. I never actually thought of that. Eh, it's my catchphrase so I'll keep it. Hope you enjoyed this fic!
Edit: I just got a new review! Time to reply!
Reply for Queenbookerly: Hi! Thanks, I'm glad you liked my story and my writing style! I'm surprised my first fic did so well. Again, glad you enjoyed reading!
Edit: Some new reviews from SammyScripts! You know what happens know.
Reply for SammyScripts: Thanks. I wanted to had a lighthearted and silly ending, so it would seem really out of place. I did this cause I realized that I like writing stories with minimalistic drama (even though I love drama). Okay now for the ships. It's okay to be honest because I respect any opinion, especially about a game with random characters. First, yeah I understand your opinion on Piper x Rico, cause I had it too for a while, but I saw something about it possibly being true, so I accepted it. Second, I respect your opinion on Shelly x Colt because there's no proof of it even existing. Third, you're right. Emz and Poco should probably be a 'will it won't be' relationship. But, because of my strict character introduction of multiple characters a chapter, I had to make the two interact face to face, so Poco could help in the battle against Crow. I'm sorry you had to keep it bottled up. I'm surprised you ship Jacky and Carl, because I'm pretty sure they hate each other and there's no proof of it being canon whatsoever. Okay, thanks for sharing!
Edit: Finally, it is my time to get criticized by The Pheonix Wright of Fiction. Let's start!
Reply for The Pheonix Wright of Fiction: Hello there! I heard about you from other authors. They warned me that you would be too harsh on me. Surprisingly, I didn't get offended one bit. I respect each and every point you said. I actually hope that you'd come see my future stories and criticize those, to see if I improved or not. Oh, two things. One, you assumed that I was pure of heart or something, but actually, I'm more of a pessimistic person. Of course, I don't blame you for thinking me as a good soul (which we all are, even you). Two, you assumed that English is not my first language, which isn't true. Sure, I live in Romania, where I have to speak Romanian, but you can't just assume that English wasn't my first language. And to end this off, I've heard that some people you critiqued before got really offended by your review. I personally wasn't offended, but to make everyone else happier, I suggest you try to be nicer. Anyway, thanks for the critique and have a nice day!
