- You can improve your magical skills by zapping inanimate objects to your heart's content. This can be fun!
- Improving your magical skills is a good way to work out the frustrations of the day.
- Thinking up ideas to prove your skills is a good test of your imagination.
- If you deal with monsters, dragons etc, you can expect to be well rewarded by the Queen and/or her government.
- If you want to get into the record books, annoy Eileen and she'll set a new world record for the quickest time taken to turn someone into a frog.
- Magical transport - everything from flying carpets to fairy wings - is efficient, green, quick and reliable. This cannot always be said for transport systems elsewhere.
- Risk of death by being blasted away by a wicked witch or wizard is quite high. (There is no such thing as a life insurance policy in the Fairy Kingdom. The insurance companies would go bankrupt).
- Magical food or food that is enhanced by magic simply does not taste as good as food that is freshly prepared and/or cooked. It is thought magic gets into the food and corrupts it.
- Things are not always what they appear to be in the magical world. Many have been caught out by this given anything can be enchanted to become a kind of magical booby trap if you have the know-how.
- When magical war does break out, it is vicious and spares nothing and nobody.
There are advantages and disadvantages to living anywhere though I've listed some for the Fairy kingdom here. Nobody will argue with the list which is amazing given there is very little common ground between the varying magical species.
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.
