I then thought about how this form of government affects the Fairy Kingdom's subjects. It made sense to me to have the Council made up of one representative of all the differing magical species living in the Kingdom with one exception. Orcs and trolls are on the Council but sprites (pixies and imps) are not because of their general larking about, tendency to fight and cause general havoc. Eileen feels the sprites should have someone on the Council on the grounds it might make them take things a bit more seriously but she is out on a limb with this one. The sprites have been too busy fighting each other to even think about protesting/campaigning for representation (which is one reason given by almost everyone other than Eileen why they should continue to be excluded). No other magical group would stand for exclusion and would assert their rights.
I then looked at how the Kingdom's peoples could contact their Council representative and looked at how each one had a different constituency, as with Britain's parliamentary system. Within each constituency live different magical species, so the representative for the elves, to give one example, is expected to represent their people well (their people including dwarves, witches, wizards etc who come within their jurisdiction). I then thought of how towns and villages are organized and with all of this could see in my mind's eye my Fairy Kingdom taking shape and coming to life in front of me. It is a good feeling when that happens. I know I can write convincingly about it now. Without going through this process, I could not achieve that.
