Sheep Might Fly: Unmagical Boy Story 1

Flying Sheep Show NotesHere we are, starting a brand new Sheep Might Fly serial!

“Unmagical Boy Story” is a sequel to “Fake Geek Girl,” and is original to this podcast.

Viola Vale has a paper to write for an important academic conference – the last thing she should do is go to the pub with her ex-best friend and his new girlfriend, to listen to an indie band she hates. But this is Belladonna University, where a good night out means magical explosions, literal trolls, hexed cocktails and sparkle pixie hair product. This particular night out will change Viola’s life, friendships and future forever…
