Maizie Albright may no longer be the teen actress star of Julia Pinkerton Teen Detective, nor a celebrity who spiraled her way into a scandal, but her acting skills still come in handy.

Regular readers may recognize Blue (aka Blueberry) and Raz (aka Raspberry) when they were featured in December 2022.
