Fake Geek Girl Tansy Rayner Roberts , 2015 single work short story
— Appears in: Review of Australian Fiction , vol. 14 no. 4 2015;

'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...'

'Viola Vale, Jules Nightshade & Ferdinand Chauvelin had everything: wealth, family legacy, powerful magic and high status at Belladonna University's College of the Real. But when Chauv lost his magic in an accident at school, he slipped away from their life, finding new friends on the other side of campus.

'Viola thinks Jules is crazy: one night partying with Chauv's geeky, tragically insignificant friends (who calls a band Fake Geek Girl? What does that even mean?) is not going to make a difference to their lives.

'Viola has never been more wrong.'

'Hebe Hallow’s job is to manage her sister’s rock band Fake Geek Girl over three days of road tripping, irresponsible drinking and romantic hijinks at a magical music festival.

'Obsessive fans, inconvenient boyfriends, sinister spells and an extreme lack of wi-fi conspire to make this the most memorable, terrible catastrophe of all time.

'Too much friendship.

'Too much magic.

'One weekend.

'Things are gonna get messy.'
