Not sure what’s gonna happen since the magic she use to levitate the fork is basically electromagnetism, add a 220V current, wouldn’t that throw the fork in one direction or cause it to spin like a drill in the prong or melt? ( if the breakers doesn’t just cut)  
I need to find out for Friday.

Now that would be interesting. All of Equestria’s inhabitants might have to be super-evolved tardigrades to survive! Oh gawd, don’t tell Badumsquish. LoL
 
‘Ionization’ just means giving an atom enough energy to knock an electron off its orbit, thus making the atom an ion with a net charge. And you’re absolutely right: ionizing radioactivity is one means of achieving this. Another, less-harmful-to-organic-life way is to create an electric charge between two electrodes with high voltage, turning the gas between them into a conductive plasma. The gap between spark plug electrodes is an everyday example of this, as are fluorescent tubes.
 
The particular ‘type’ I had in mind regarding Unicorns & Magic is referred to as Townsend ionization, btw. I deal with this all the time in thyratrons (some of which do have thoriated tungsten filaments). :)

The only counterargument I can think of is that if magic emits ionizing radiation, then magic is radioactive, and all the unicorns would have died of leukemia or radiation poisoning years ago.

Word Bug
@BigBuggyBastage  
If she only shorts active to neutral, there won’t be an earth leakage at all (the fork is electrically isolated from ground, after all).
 
Basically, power will flow with a very low resistance load until the fuses/overcurent breakers give out.
