- I can use magic better/for longer than you can. It would be best if you don't find out the hard way how wrong you are here!
- You're not as powerful as you used to be. You used to frighten everybody. This is a great way to ensure you don't see your next hour yet alone your next birthday.
- This magic business is overrated. What you want is logic and common sense. Now if you had logic and common sense, you wouldn't say that to someone who has spent the whole of their life working and training in magic. Nobody likes their profession undervalued.
This post presumes you want to live! So on those grounds then never say any of the following to a magical being of any description. The weaker ones will use what powers they've got to zap you. They don't want you becoming a threat. The stronger ones will either just destroy you for being an irritant or ignore you but name you publicly. The point of that is their minions will come after you instead, saving them the bother.
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.
