Geez, Tecna! Why so rude?
I’m talking about her copping an attitude with Evie, Laurie, and Carol in “The Lost Library.” “Are you kidding me?” is right, Stormy! What if those had been the right girls instead of the Trix? They were thrilled to get to travel abroad with the Winx, but they’d have felt like dirt after this moment. Not a good way to start a long trip!
Has anyone else noticed the Winx act like snobs toward anyone who’s not in their group? Or they leave them out of their plans and conversations. Just look at how they treat Roxy and Daphne. These two have come closer than anyone to joining the club, but something always keeps them on the outside.
Roxy spent almost a whole season with the Winx and (supposedly) became their best friend. Yet, they left her behind on missions (even ones she could handle), didn’t include her in their fun (like the Winx band), and gave her weird looks sometimes when she tried to bond with them. It’s like they didn’t know what to do with her.
Now, they ignore her even if she’s standing three feet away. Episode 6X07 was the first time we’d seen them talk to her in more than twenty episodes!
Daphne’s fared a little better but not much. She’s gotten a few new outfits from Stella Couture (though none have coordinated with the Winx’s yet), fought alongside the girls several times, and scored a mandatory boyfriend. (Rainbow, they don’t all have to have one.) But she barely talks to anyone but her sis, and the others treat her more like an encyclopedia than a friend.
I bet Rainbow’s afraid to show the Winx with “outsiders” for fear we’ll think they’re future members. The funny thing is that’s exactly what happens. As soon as a new fairy character starts hanging out with them, we think, “You know, she might make a good Winx!”
Even dropping names is dangerous. Before season five premiered, some fans thought Krystal or “Keisha” would become a Winx since they were mentioned in the press releases.
I don’t want every fairy in Magix to join the club. I just want the Winx to have friends outside their clique, just like we all do. Remember Dunbar’s Number?” Each of us has about 35 people we touch bases with every month or so. Where are they in the Winx’s lives?
One more thing. I know what some of you are thinking: why can’t Roxy be just an outside friend? She is — at least for now. If that’s Rainbow’s new role for her, there’s nothing I can do about it.
I just hope they change their minds.
