Which spell was your favourite?
I was always a dab hand at turning errant beings into amphibians at considerable speed. A basic spell but one which no fairy should be without.
Do you miss living in the magical world?
Generally no but I miss Hanastrew and Melanbury who were great to train and work with. Both girls will serve the Fairy Kingdom well. Certain things about the magical world had advantages – I rarely had to queue for anything given most things can be summoned or created magically. I don’t miss the power abuses and always having to kill dragons!
Do you see yourself as an ambassador for magical beings generally?
Definitely not! I know I have a mouth on me as wide as Scotland’s Moray Firth!
Is your relationship with Jennifer as it should be? Has she forgiven you yet? How do you cope?
These questions border on the impertinent but knowing my daughter she’d answer it so I’d better! Our relationship is better than it has been but things are not fullly rectified. Jennifer does still resent me for my past. I cope with it because I have to, Jennifer’s attitude is understandable and by being conciliatory I hope it will speed up the process of her coming around to the idea she’s half magical. Now that she’s a mum, I think as Edward grows she’ll understand better the dilemmas I faced and why I acted the way I did.
