“The Dash A.E” short story by Mark Villarosa is a rewrite of “The Flash -Duet” season 3 episode 17. The short story is about the superheroes Dash and Dupergirl who ended up in another universe, nothing alike their own. In this universe their superpowers aren’t working like they supposed to and in consequence when they tried to stop a gang fight they got shot in the chest and ended up in the hospital. During this time at the hospital and in this alternate universe they started to bond progressively. Thereafter when they finally got rescued by Mon-el, Dupergirls ex-boyfriend and Sarah, Dash’s ex-fiancé, everything was still the same as it was before they left.

Effects of distance on culture and heritage is more visible in “A family supper” than in “The Dash A.E” (due to the writer Kazuo Ishiguro spent more time on the story than Mark did on his and he is a professional). Kazuo Ishiguro is a Japanese writer and he reflects his own culture in his short story. For instance he mentions ‘kimono’ and ‘importance of honour’. It is well known fact that
