FURTHER FAIRY KINGDOM SURVIVAL TIPS
Don’t cross the Fairy Queen, don’t cross the wizards, don’t cross the witches, don’t cross the fairies
– that way you can at least avoid being cursed in various imaginative ways!
The only cursing to do is your own!
Treat the elderly with respect – you never know who they’ll turn out to be.
Treat stepdaughters well – if things work out for them later, they may well remember you.
See it as the Buttons Principle!
Always look behind you! Always look in front of you – and don’t forget to look to right and left and up and down
as well as enemies in the magical world can and will attack you from all directions.
If you’re prepared for strange creatures to “have a go” you’re less likely to be attacked by them.
Nobody likes a surprise ruined.
Don’t meddle with forces that are beyond you. This particularly applies to lazy apprentices who want to take
a short cut with the cleaning. If you come across strange objects (sword in stone, crystal ball apparently abandoned
and so on), leave well alone. These things are the source of much trouble.
Do you really want that?
Unless you want an early death or are Eileen, do not poke your wand or other magical implement into anywhere
it is likely such interference might lead to a break out of war. If you are Eileen, the usual rules don’t apply.
If the former applies, you need help fast! Incidentally many a magical death has occurred because wizards in particular
suspect anyone poking their nose in of trying to steal their powers.
The only way to convince them otherwise is not to meddle.
