Already excited to read everyone's stories!

By some miracle I managed to actually get this written and submitted with exactly 1 minute to spare - hopefully my heart rate slows down eventually.

I'm group 68: historical fiction / an observatory / a cigarette holder.


In the Space Between Stars
Astronomical discoveries of the 20th Century are revealing an expanding universe and capturing the imaginations of astronomers across the world. But for Alice - a computer at Mount Wilson Observatory - the world is shrinking, fast.

(Obligatory clarification: she's one of the people who worked as a 'computer' before we had the tech-y versions).

Horror/oil tanker/guardrail

I didn't score in Round 1, so I took a lot of risks in this one that I might not have if I was in a more competitive position--including with the synopsis. 

I kinda love the way it turned out; fairly certain the judges will hate it.
