- It is not unknown for magic to get out of hand and disaster to result so the Queen limits her wizards to producing fireworks, fairy godmothers the food and drink (they will make sure nobody but nobody does anything suspicious with the apples in the fruit bowl) and the minor magical creatures like the sprites are not to use magic at all on pain of a painful eviction from the party. These restrictions work, people have a good time, the Palace remains undamaged and the Queen won't be removing these rules any time soon.
- There used to be a tendency for the different magical groups to show off and while even the Queen can't stop this altogether, her restrictions do at least limit the damage. The wizards, for example, only show off with the quality of the fireworks they produce and given they are generally trying to impress her will not do anything that might cause her to inflict magical wrath on them.
- It is noisy!
- Food and drink flow for hours...
- Nobody sleeps before dawn...
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.
