Everyone having this combo should hand in the same script... all of you will probably win your heat... food for thought.

Hello, fellow mystery/plagiarite!
 
Mystery/plagiarism really puzzled me at first.  It took me four hours to get to the point where I could even see a storyline.
 
And people complain about THEIR assignments!  Plagiarism is way narrower than anything else I have seen thus far.
 
You're right - there are about five different options, depending on how far you are willing to stretch both genre and subject.  I hope mine is unique enough (and well-written enough) to win the heat.

That is twisted and brilliant.  I love it.

I'm in your heat. And I agree. It's way too narrow a subject.
 
I think I found a somewhat unique take (hopefully not one of your 5!).

The real mystery will be ... who wrote this damn thing for all 18 entrants?!

Alright. I'm game. My script is really short on mystery and really long on plagiarism. And I don't mean me stealing from others. Okay, maybe I do.
