dc.description.abstractIntuition is a proud blend of speculative fiction and police procedural. It follows the story of Danielle Thompson, a detective in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania in the year 2087. In this future, humans evolved to have mental or physical abilities, called Extras. These abilities, or Extras, can vary from the ability to fly—like the main character—to the ability to influence the emotions of anyone around you. This evolution created a divide as society adapted. Supers, those with Extras, and Non-Supers, those without. Intuition is set fifty years after Supers were initially discovered, leaving our characters in a seemingly assimilated and accepting society. Dani Thompson is a 28-year-old Super who works for the Pittsburgh police department and is only just beginning to understand and accept her Extras. She works closely with her partner, Dave Umbrage, and her boss, Elise Renault, in the Super Crime Unit to solve crimes specifically related to and involving Supers in the greater Pittsburgh area. Intuition begins as Dani struggles to control her second Extra, Intuition. And she discovers that a string of seemingly unrelated cases may have a larger, more dangerous, connection. Intuition works to examine the complexity and intrinsic nature of oppression through the lens of speculative fiction. Using this genre, I hope to craft an exploration of discrimination while maintaining a compelling narrative.en_US
