2016 BlueCat
Hollywood competition (aka Fighting Chance). Judges' analysis:

         Archive #4408  Judge #8107:  "...anything but cookie-cutter. This is a fun and vivid story... The fast
         pace of reading the scenes makes utterly clear the clipping pace of the action in this story....
         Characters are distinct with a high
degree of intrigue and adventure. You set up Tara’s role as an
         iconoclast early, raising the stakes
for her and making this a compelling and fun story."

         Archive # 8296 Judge #8058:  "I like that you’ve crafted a story with not one, but two very strong
         female characters. Tara is a smart, capable firecracker, who has the confidence to be her own
         woman and to go after her dreams, rather than being a kept housewife to an affluent husband.
         She is actively breaking down societal barriers in the pursuit of a career as a detective, and thus
         she makes a very nice role model, that many women are sure to relate to and sympathize with...
         Charlie provides a nice bit of comic relief, while also possessing the strength of character to be
         unapologetically herself, and the smarts to be a real asset to Tara. I think they worked well
         off of one another."
