Just how close were you to the Witch? Did this affect your judgement? You were far kinder to her than you would have been for anyone else doing what she did.
The Witch and I were 3 years apart in age and met regularly as she carried out her duties in keeping fairies such as myself on our toes and I carried out mine, thwarting the likes of her! Our relationship was a professional rivalry and over time, as with other rivalries of this type, you develop respect for your opponent, get talking to them and so on. I was always aware of what she was capable of and if it was in her interests to kill me she would so my judgement wasn’t affected. There was a window of opportunity where we could have negotiated a settlement with the Witch which the Queen blew with her arrogant attitude. The Witch does have some genuine grievances against fairy royal treatment, hence my sympathy.
You have got your own way on issues where others would not – your marriage and actions regarding the Witch to name two. Are you abusing royal privilege here? What have you contributed to the Fairy Kingdom monarchy?
Definitely not and is it me or is this interview becoming hostile? I fell in love. Is that such a crime? I still feel the Witch could have been reasoned with as long as the powers that be negotiated early enough. I made it clear to the Queen I would be happy to lead the negotiations but she was having none of it. I have saved the monarchy on more than one occasion, not just by getting rid of monsters threatening the realm, but trying to bring Roxannadrell to her senses. I put it to you it was not entirely my fault I failed.
Now Derek knows what you are, how are you compensating him? After all your news/heritage was bound to shock him.
I never set out to shock anyone and resent any attempt to make me the villain. I was trying to shield Derek from the horrors of the magical world. And it can be horrific. I’ve faced more creatures with fangs than you’ve had hot dinners. I’m not prepared to comment on my relationship with Derek but will say I have sworn to use my magical skills to defend him, our family and home. He is happy with that. After all he now knows the magical world exists and that would have been the case regardless of my status. He has the advantage of being married to someone who can fight magic with magic.
If you could interview anyone in history who would it be?
Jesus, if it were allowed, as I’d like to ask what made Him choose to do miracles for some people but not for others. If it weren’t allowed, I’d interview Lazarus. I strongly suspect his attitude to death changed completely after Jesus brought him back. If there was ever anyone not to fear death, it is Lazarus.
What do you hate most about living on Earth?
War and pollution. Humans are the worst species for both these things. I also loathe the way prices keep going up. I’d rather they just picked a price and stuck to it for a while.
Have you ever misused magic?
Define misuse! I have always tried to use the right spell, and its ingredients, for whatever occasion . Yes I’ve bent the rules more times than I care to recount but every decent magical being has done that. I’ve not transformed anyone not willing to undergo that change (and there are loads of fairy godmothers who can’t claim that).
What are your hobbies on Earth (and do you use magic to help you with them)?
Gardening, reading, keeping a general eye on Jenny and her toddler son, trying to prevent the Queen from getting through with an army of magical beings to drag me back”.
Were you too harsh on Wes and Stan? Wes became a hero
To begin with, no as the pair of them were rogues. They fought like wildcats and caused mayhem wherever they went. They needed to be reined in and that’s one of my jobs as fairy godmother. I am very glad both went on to become finer characters and I particularly wish Wes well as he tries to pursue his relationship with the Lady Isabel.
