More Fairy Godmothers, Inc. History: Our Glorious Founding
Moments in Fairy Godmothers, Inc. HistoryOur Glorious Founding
The founder of Fairy Godmothers, Inc., Gloria Grimm, did indeed happen to be both a fairy and a godmother. At the time, there was nothing particularly significant about either of those things, though she became a godmother largely because her friend’s first choice had gotten turned into stone several years before. (There had been a misunderstanding about a pair of enchanted shoes.) Gloria, who had made several failed runs at city office, mostly restricted her involvement to a card every year on the girl’s birthday.
Several years and a few bad business deals later, Gloria ended up owing her friend a great deal of money. She still had her old connections, however, and paid her friend back by securing the girl’s invitation to a ball being put on in honor of some duke’s son who’s name she couldn’t remember. Gloria, never one to waste either an opportunity or a face far more young and attractive than hers, decided that the girl needed to make a proper entrance.The duke’s son and her goddaughter only ended up dating for six months, but word of her entrance had already spread. Gloria had finally found her calling.
