Play Iolanthe with a Patrician
Vetenari-esque Fairy Queen. The whole story is all part of her longstanding plot to f*** up the human government. She knew Iolanthe was pregnant when she was banished, and has intentionally manipulated Strephon’s upbringing for twenty four years (hardly long at all to an immortal fairy) so that she can plant him in Parliament, getting her whole troupe access. I suspect she knew the mortals were kinda sexist and so female fairies weren’t allowed, so she sends a male half-fairy. (Heck she may have even orchestrated Strephon’s creation).
So then in Act 2, she brings a bunch of horny single ladies into a room of horny single men, and says “whatever you do, DON’T fall in love and get married,” knowing that of course they’ll do just that. Then she pretends she never thought of changing the law, making Chancellor happy and feeling like he’s oh-so-clever for thinking it up.
BUT THEN. She turns all the men into fairies! And flies them away! And they are super happy about flying off with their new wives, but guess what? Half of Parliament is gone! And now, FQ can do whatever she wants to gain control. Or just leave things to the House of Commons. Or wait for the Lords and Fairies to reproduce to create an army of half-fairies and take over the world!

Instead of studying, he spends a lot of his downtime drawing. He draws bugs, that’s why he finds them. He draws them HUGE, though, like kaiju stomping through cities. He draws brave human soldiers shooting them and throwing grenades at them. His pictures have tons of fire and explosions, badasses on motorcycles, machine guns, tanks, bombs, and ludicrous amounts of bug meat.
Penny would prefer that he studies, of course. Those books won’t read themselves, and he’s behind Jas in math even though she’s a bit younger. Still, she enjoys his drawings, and she’s a little envious that he can draw better than she can.
