- The Kingdom has 22 different species and all have a Council representative. The Council also represent different areas in the realm so everybody has a “MP” they can take their problems to. The Queen, on her visits, will often hear what her Council have been doing to help the populace and has been known to grill the Council if she feels their help has been lacking or not given quickly enough.
The fact FNN exists tends to focus the Council’s collective minds on getting the help done and out of the way or they’ll be roasted by the broadcasters. The Council hate that. The Kingdom welcomes it. FNN have achieved something useful!
Forms of address can be tricky in Council meetings and the Queen has got around this by calling everybody by name making the meetings less formal. There is a Post Office like arrangement at the Palace as the Queen is inundated with mail and again if any problems her Council haven’t dealt with come up here said representative gets a roasting and is literally booted out of the Palace to tackle said problem forthwith.
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.
