Tales of the Drunken Unicorn banner

More Talking Animals than you can shake a stick at! Magic everywhere.

The last thing Samantha had expected when she went to Delta Sigma Phi’s Halloween Party was that she’d end up the proud owner of a magical companion animal. But one drunken Ouija board adventure later, she’s got an annoyed unicorn following her around and a binding contract with no escape clause. It’s not that she minds saving the world, it’s just she’d got better things to do… like passing midterms, or finding better blackmail on her RA (Dry dorm? What dry dorm?).

About the ‘Verse

If you haven’t noticed yet I have lots of love for Magical Companion Animals that tell the status quo to [bleep] off. This is basically my slightly sarcastic love letter to the ‘superhero teens fight evil while in high school’ genre (re: Buffy, Teen Wolf, etc.)

Right now this verse is a collection of flash fiction, drabbles, and short stories. I don’t plan on any novel-length works at the moment, it’s more of a TV show than a movie, but we’ll see! 🙂
