- That she will be given a downtrodden, repressed, ill treated client to assist. Pumpkins and glass slippers may come into the assistance she is required to give.
- That she will be on standby at all times to give magical assistance to those who need it, though her own spells will almost always expire at midnight on any given day.
- She should be an older lady, looking a little grey perhaps, and should look like someone's favourite aunt/grandmother. Age and experience count for a great deal here.
- She does not do the work of the Tooth Fairy. Some of those girls can be a bit rough with the pliers especially if the human client is a spoilt brat. Fairy godmothers are far more dignified and above that kind of thing.
- She is always ready to appear at the last minute to modify a wicked fairy/witch's spell, even if she can't cancel it out altogether.
- She will turn up at a point in the client's life when things really couldn't get much worse. This is conventional and is not the fairy godmother's fault so there is no point in the client whining about this.
- She will be treated with respect at all times. After all you should see what she can do to pumpkins, rats etc. Presumably she has got something more powerful for dealing with those who do offend her.
- If there is a royal wedding as a result of her work, she will get one of the best seats in the house to watch it.
- If she ever needs a favour, spell ingredients or what have you and her now successful and happy client is able to assist, said happy client will do so. This is partly to be nice and partly as an insurance policy. It really does not pay to upset a fairy godmother. They can reverse spells after all.
- She will be considered the most important magical being in the fairytale world. She would point out that it can't be the witch because they almost always come to a horrible ending (usually of their own making).
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.
