Disaster arrives in a pumpkin coach… The story of the century is wearing glass slippers… and Castle Charming will never be the same again.

Flying Sheep Show NotesNew episode of Sheep Might Fly!

You can listen now to Episode 10 on iTunes (or your own favourite podcast app, I hope), and also stream, download & follow Sheep Might Fly here on the Podbean site.

“Fake Geek Girl,” was originally published in Review of Australian Fiction Volume 14, Issue 4. You can buy the issue containing the story (along with a fantastic piece from Stephanie Lai) directly from their website.

Meet Fake Geek Girl, the band that plays nerdy songs at the university bar every Friday night, to a mixture of magical and non-magical students: lead singer Holly writes songs based on her twin sister Hebe’s love of geek culture though she doesn’t really understand it; drummer Sage is an explosive sorcerous genius obsessing over whether Holly’s about to quit the band to go mainstream; shy Juniper only just worked up the nerve to sing her own song in public and keeps a Jane Austen themed diary chronicling the lives and loves of her friends. When the mysterious, privileged Ferd joins their share house, everything starts to unravel…

In Part 10: Hebe and the Library Resource Cupboard of Doom, the sisters are forced to talk about their feelings, Sage is forced to witness the results and admit a few truth bombs of his own, and Holly defends her status as Fake Geek Girl with benefit. (also, she writes a song about it)

This is the last part, the story is now COMPLETE! Thanks so much for listening and tune in next week for a brand new serial, original to the podcast – Glass Slipper Scandal, which is about newspaper hacks, trashy pretty princes, gold-diggers and long-suffering bodyguards in a fairy tale kingdom.
