The Good Fairy Heather

Once upon a time there was a good fairy with a magical fairy coat. She loved her beautiful coat and wore it as she did good deeds all across the land. She wore it while she directed other fairies in doing good deeds and she believed that the coat was the key to her success.

Throughout her fairy home she wore her coat as she spread peace and kindness, rising to the high position of designated hugger of fairyland.

At school she used the magical powers of the coat to protect the helpless and downtrodden by taking calculated risks in a great battle with the wicked Magician Peterson. She sustained wounds in this fierce exchange and was unsuccessful at confining the Magician to the dungeon, yet her magical coat protected her from serious injury and she continued onward spreading goodness throughout the land.

Then one day while she was visiting the house of worship and contemplating additional good deeds to do a terrible thing happened. A wicked troll seeking greater magical powers absconded with the good fairy’s precious fairy coat.

The good fairy was thunderstruck. How could her coat be gone, and with it all of her magical powers including the powers to legally operate fairy vehicles and to purchase things in fairyland (though it should be noted that this power was minuscule even before the theft).

The good fairy realizing that wicked trolls lurked nearby moved to Loganland where it was much colder. Luckily the fairy’s mother provided her a new coat, albeit an unmagical one. With her unmagical coat the good fairy was unsure of her abilities to navigate this new land; luckily one of her sister fairies lived in this new land and was able to show her the realm. Soon the good fairy was traveling across Loganland doing good deeds and meeting the many different creatures that lived there. She met princesses, trolls, gnomes and trollusks, but she did not find any of the creatures as interesting as the geeky gremlin Math-thew. Math-thew was trapped in the computer kingdom and was only able to occasionally visit the rest of Loganland.

Without her magical powers the good fairy was unable to completely rescue the gremlin from his geeky fate, however she has helped him to emerge from it at least one full day a week and some evenings.

The good fairy and the gremlin Math-thew continue to reside in Loganland and the good fairy continues to do good deeds including teaching little fairies to say fairy words and helping them to share their toys with other little fairies.
The End

Perfect! Sorry to have left Heather out--it was unintentional, as the Driving by Food poem started out as hers, and when I started I wasn't planning to do a story for each member of the family, but since it turned out that way, Heather certainly needs her own story. Thanks Crystal.
