Got started today. Hopefully I'll have it done and turned in by this weekend.

@dngn4774: You're a 100% right about the research. That was the reason I didn't enter the last Character Creation Contest even though I was invited. I had source material, but by the time I knew about it, I didn't have enough time to come up with something that I would have been happy with. This time around though, cbishop has come up with a contest that gives a writer like me some breathing room. ^_^ Also, about the getting in trouble with the fanbase, that's actually happened to me before over on FF.net, and believe me I don't want to go through that again.

@impurestcheese: Well then I believe you probably had as much exposure to her as anyone else. Her role was so minute it was barely noticeable. The character didn't even get a real name, and her development was completely halted due the New 52, so like my other beloved character (Kitrina) Lynx is almost completely open to interpretation. To sort of take from dngn's comment, she's a D-Lister, so does this make me the King of the D-Listers? :P

@batkevin74: Now you have me curious, wondering where the first Lynx appeared.

@the_impersonator: Thanks for the warning. You're not the first person to tell me this, but I personally don't censor anything. That's not me being arrogant, just that it doesn't feel right when I have to muck up the flow of the writing that way. I've had conversations with the mods about this before, and I've made it clear to them that I only use swear words when it's appropriate to use them, and that I'm going to write the character in such a way that I would perceive them to act. Besides that, thanks for reading, and I'm glad you liked it.

@joygirl: To be honest, to me this whole chapter felt weird while I was writing it. The part with O'Neil was very tricky because I couldn't always figure out just how I wanted that whole scene to happen, so thanks for pointing that stuff out. (By the way, what do you mean by detached? Do you mean that part with O'Neil?)

@wildvine: It is and it isn't. @delphic: will correct me if I'm wrong but roughly Kitrina's origin was the 4-parter for DCM and this continues from that about a year later. DCM past, Sensational future.

That pretty much sums it up. Kitrina's timeline split into two different paths at the end of "Tis the Season". On Earth Mayhem (DC Mayhem) Kitrina left Gotham, got on a boat, was shot, saved from the brink of death by Ocean Master, and is now in the hand of the Amazons. On Earth Sensational (DC Sensational) Kitrina stayed in Gotham, and eventually ends up founding the Gotham City Sirens.

Am I the only guy that likes Wally's costume?

@batkevin74: & @impurestcheese: Since the guessing game you two have going on is the result of my not wanting to dig for pictures, then I don't mind letting you guys know this little tid-bit. Also let me say that Imp, congratulations you bet on the right horse. The mysterious cat lady is none other than the second Lynx.

but is she friend or foe? That you will have to wait till next time to find out. mwahaha! (By the way Imp, for you to know for Lynx you have had to read more DC comics than you've let on).

@dngn4774: Like I've said to Bats in the Sensational PM, I have unfortunately never read The Long Halloween, and for me to be writing a character who's history is so strongly based on the events of that story is a travesty. I have ordered the trade, and I hope to have it here sometime next week. I pretty much know what happened, but I think actually reading the story will help me have a better grasp of my most beloved character. As far as the actual event having happened, yes, the events of the Long Halloween went down, and a large part of Kitrina's story in GCS will focus on her, as the last Falcone,dealing with the long term consequences of that tragedy.

Also, thank all of you for reading. I hope you come back for the next issue of Gotham City Sirens.

@cbishop I actually want to enter this one. I've never done one of these before, and I'm getting a huge film noir vibe off that picture.

@impurestcheese & @irishlad The Sentry might be a little late.
