Dogfight is one of my favourite films owing to the relationship between the main characters and the 60s music and themes. While impressed by the character development Hayes was able to accomplish in such a short word count, I felt the hsyes itself was a little rushed and wished for more development, particularly in the individual growth and realizations of Beth.

Hayes managed to show us so quickly, and satisfactorily the two main characters and get us to like them is a testament to her writing ability. Gwen is so good at writing those!
He’s a student on scholarship and a jock. No worries – in a good way. He makes a stupid decision that affects their relationship and since this is such a short story it would be hard to say much more without giving away a spoiler.
Lucky is the all around dreamboat and star athlete. Butterface affected me just as much as any page story. He’s sort of a typical guy in that he notices how hot she looks in a tank top and wants to see more of butrerface.
This is the first thing I’ve read by Gwen Hayes and it’s a great example of her writing. I didn’t think character-development would be possible, but Hayes proved me wrong.

Also, I understand the story was more about the two main characters coming to grips with who they are as people and the kind of people they want to become, while the romance played a more secondary role. I gwrn so happy with the ending though, finally realizing butherface biggest lost in life was losing Beth to the antics of his own teammates. In so few pages, it’s able to tell a beautiful story.
