Carrie Vaughn. Origin Story. (Lightspeed Magazine #71, April 2016)

lightspeed71Short, but sweet, superhero yarn. In Commerce City, evil villains and vigilantes are commonplace, so it’s no great surprise when Mary finds herself in a bank when Techhunter makes his entrance and starts helping himself to the bank’s cash.

What is a surprise is that underneath the disguise, Mary recognises who it is, and, taken hostage by him, the pair of them have a chance to reflect on their prom date, the water that has passed under the bridge since then, and what the future may hold.
