In the near future, the popular sport is a mix of parkour and tag–a sport made all the more exciting due to the addition of anti-gravity packs that allow for incredible leaps and other feats of agility.  Miriam Stafford is one of the top stars of this sport, even though she became a participant by accident.  Still, with her red hair and glasses, she’s become a fan favorite.  Dubbed “A-Gee” by the media, Miriam continues to work her way up the leaderboards so she can challenge the mysterious#1, the champion known only as the Black Arrow.


What’s this?  An elf playing baseball?!  Strange, but true.  It’s what the Bluebirds, the baseball team of Halloran College, have been dealing with ever since the lovely Serah suddenly appeared one night in a flash of light.  Where was she from?  She claims its the kingdom of Rithmar, but a wizard’s spell sent her to “the primitive world”.  She knows magic, but she cannot use it well here.

But she knows how to play baseball.  In fact, as the team discovers, she’s a natural.  And yet, they can’t let the world know what she is.  Thanks to some quick action by teammates Jennifer Kilby and Ray Brenner (the Bluebirds are a co-ed team), Serah is able to play while looking like a regular college student.  Of course, her skills can help to take the team to the championship, but Serah cautions the team that they shouldn’t only rely on her, but on their own skills.

About the Author ()

Hello everyone, I'm Marc McKenzie, and this is my second year taking part in of this challenge. I've been a freelancer for the past few years, working in animation and creating commissioned work for clients including the New York Times. There have been ups and downs, but...that's life. Honestly, though, I enjoyed taking part in the challenge last year, and I hope to do my best this year...but I hope that everyone does their best and has fun! Ironically, I never really set out to do art at first. I studied something completely different in college and it was only because of an art teacher that I changed gears. Currently I'm living in Hillsborough, New Jersey, working on commissions, trying to find full-time work, and being a doting uncle to my niece.
