From Earth to date its borrowings are:-
- Television. They call it fairyvision. They never bothered with black and white, waiting for colour and stereo technology to come out before borrowing this. The main purpose was the fairy government of the day thought this would be a good way to spread news around the realm without wasting magical energy, which is fine, fairyvision does do that, but it also gave the Kingdom Roherum. Roherum could be called the thinking man's friendly idiot. Roherum considers himself the best journalist ever. It's funny how some ideas can never be reconciled.
- Earth cuisine. This has largely been unaltered and the recipes pinched wholescale. This is partly because the Queen is sick of Dodo Surprise and Griffin Stew (which pleases wildlife specialist, Fresdian, given dodos and griffins are becoming rarer in the magical world yet alone elsewhere). The Queen has taken well to Earth cuisine. L'Evallier has done so too, much to his surprise. He has particularly appreciated the wholescale "borrowing" of decent claret.
