79 - What if unicorns turned to rocks when they’re shy and a magical fairy came and didn’t make unicorns shy (and aliens controlled us like puppets)?
Emmatrice Widdle Pony Unistony has been shyly hiding as a stone in the woods until Fairien the Fairy Alien comes to take over the worl – ahem – make a new friend. Can Fairien be a good friend and respect Emma’s shyness, or will he forget the whole thing and conquer What If World?
Lessons include: safety is about learning the smartest way to try something new; fun can be big and loud or little and quiet, you should try a bit of both; make sure you always respect your friends’ boundaries
