- Her favourite spell book. This will be well battered and the spine is probably on its last legs so to speak but she would not dream of going on any mission without it.
- At least one spare wand, usually two to three. Accidents happen. So does sabotage. Your average fairy godmother likes to be prepared for anything.
- A selection of raw ingredients that she can bring to life with a spell and/or her wand. For example she'll have an instant pumpkin growing kit somewhere on her person. You never know when you might need a pumpkin and if all else fails she can always eat the finished product.
- A map. This isn't any old map. It will mark out where the different magical species live. While not afraid to go into witch territory, no fairy godmother deliberately seeks out conflict (it wastes far too much magical energy for one thing).
- A decent storage jar which usually has fairy dust in it. She doesn't need the dust itself, she can always conjure some up but sometimes it looks good to be able to sprinkle the stuff around and has been known to reassure clients. So it is best to have a decent amount ready to go so to speak.

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.
