Who told you I tried to kill Eileen? I've done nothing of the sort. I've gone out of my way to avoid confrontation with Eileen because I do have some respect for her and that is about as far as any of my ilk would be prepared to go. You forget that fairies have treated us witches badly over centuries. Not all of us try to shove kids in an oven or lure them to their doom by having a gingerbread house (I've always thought that impractical - on a really hot day the house would go soft, yuk)
What in the Kingdom's name possessed you to enter into an alliance with Brankaresh? Most beings recognized his greed for power (the one exception unfortunately seeming to be the Queen). Were you taken in by his renowned charm?
Ha! What charm? The idea was to use him for his powers and then dump/kill him at the earliest opportunity. I appreciate now that he almost certainly had that idea in mind for me. It really was one of those ideas which seemed okay at the time. The one good thing was we managed to give the Queen a good fright. That arrogant madam had that coming (and even Eileen wouldn't entirely disagree with that).
Do you regret not being on better terms with your fellow witches? You seem to rule them with fear. Eileen got on well with her fellow fairy godmothers by earning their respect. You don't seem to have bothered with that.
Different strokes for different folks and all that. I would point out I've had not problems with rebellious witches wanting to defect to another planet to wed a totally inferior species - the fairies can't claim that. And respect is strengthened if behind it is fear or at the very least concern about what the magical being in question is likely to do if upset. Eileen has used that to her advantage more than once.
