Great story! Special props especially to the dialogue. I teach high school students for a living, and a lot of this dialogue felt pretty spot-on to the average teenager.

My one dialogue critique would be from the opening scene with Penny on page 2. When Penny says the whole spheal about how looking at Eli is like looking in a mirror, it didn't feel real. I understand it sets up the theme of the show, but I would find a way to deliver the mess...
