- Turning folk who cross her into frogs, toads or any other kind of amphibian. (Eileen likes to mix this up a bit as she appreciates variety in her work). She also places the victim in the middle of a heron colony... if you get out alive, you have done well. It is also very unlikely as Eileen knows only too well.
- Turning folk who cross her into statues. This is mainly used by Eileen to prove it isn't just her cousin, the Fairy Queen, who can do this. Privately, Eileen thinks this is a bit boring. She thinks statues are generally without interest. On Earth she has no time for the living statues and there have been times she has had to fight down the "trigger instinct" to turn these into porcelain.
- Turning those who cross her into dust. Simple, very effective and no chance of anyone coming back for a revenge attack.
- Boosting her spells' efficiency by speeding up "take up" time. Eileen, when casting spells, doesn't believe in hanging about. This is roughly the equivalent of speeding up your PC by removing temporary files, cookies etc.
- Using a specific spell to help her create wonderful meals for Derek and herself. Jenny considers this cheating. So does her mother. The difference? Eileen simply doesn't care.
Eileen has her favourite spells, as do all fairy godmothers, witches and wizards (evil or otherwise). Decide for yourself if you want to get in the way of any of the following:-
I'm Allison Symes and I write novels, short stories as well as some scripts and poems. I love setting my work in my magical world, the Fairy Kingdom, and my favourite character is Eileen, who believes hypocrisy is something that happens to other people without caring that statement is hypocritical in itself! Eileen is huge fun to write for and about.
