The Kingdom doesn’t understand why humans do this. They feel you should just live, that this kind of writing is egotistical. Eileen has written her version of events and these have been carefully secreted in one of the most inaccessible areas of the Palace Library. Eileen only wrote these down to prove she did have a reason for everything she did but it hasn’t helped her cause much. After all there is no denying that she is awkward…
Considered phenomenally important, all species go to school to learn the 3 Rs, magical history, how to write and read fairytales correctly, how to perform magic (how much depends on species, all groups have their own limitations and have inherited powers, which again vary) and the Kingdom’s constitution. Nobody can leave education until they pass exams in this and get a decent grade. Some species, notably the sprite, stay at school for years...
Good as concept
According to the Witch, good is defined as being what the Fairy Queen says it should be. And that lady will not accept the possibility that the Witch had ever been hard done by. Eileen does, which is why the Witch was reluctant to have to kill Eileen and tried to avoid the scenario where it would be necessary. Naturally the Queen said “good is good” and all right minded people would agree. Most would accept the monarch is generally right but if they’d known the full story behind the Witch’s attitude would also accept that the crone had a point which should have been dealt with honourably and wasn’t.
The Queen’s official image is carefully controlled, something she shares in common with Queen Elizabeth Tudor. Mind, some of the latter’s gowns, even the fairy monarch considers a tad OTT. And the magical ruler would never tolerate a ruff getting in the way or making her neck feel itchy. But portraits are carefully set up, as they were for Queen Elizabeth, and circulated widely.
Almost everyone in the Kingdom sticks to within species for friendships and then refines that to within their own village and/or nearest neighbouring village. Eileen is unusual in befriending all kinds of species though in fairness she makes enemies out of them too! Had Eileen been blessed with a modicum of tact, she would have made an excellent ambassador.
Much the same applies as above though Eileen is blessed with the gift of finding it phenomenally easy to make enemies. Indeed she’s been known to consider this a sign she’s carrying out her fairy godmother role properly. They’re bound to make enemies putting evil right.
