Here’s part II of the anonymous fan’s theory. This post is about the Trix. (Read part I here.) Again, if you’d like to send your own guest post, email it to [email protected]. (Or use the contact form in the sidebar.)
Were The Trix Going to Be the Ancient Witches?
~ by an anonymous fan ~
I remember Stormy saying, after they failed to get the Dragon’s Flame from Stella’s ring, “We shall be as we once were. There was no explosion” in the RaiEng dub of S1, and in the French and Italian dubs, it’s more like, “We will be like in the ancient times. In those times, there was no explosion.”
In another episode, Icy says, “The Flame will restore the magnificence of our distant past” (RaiEng), and “The Flame! The Flame will give us back our splendor from the ancient times.”
And for them as well, the memory of the Ancestral Witches seems to have been forgotten in the beginning of S1. It’s only in the second half that we hear of them as if people really remember them.
There’s a lot of hints at the beginning of season one that it’s the Trix who have been looking for the Dragon’s Flame for centuries.
And the rivalry between the headteachers doesn’t really fit with the fact that they once worked together to defeat the greatest threat the Magic Dimension ever faces. Their rivalry is beyond bitter (especially with Griffin trying to sabotage events at Alfea). The attitudes of the headteachers at the beginning of season one is the complete opposite of the one they’re said to have had when they fought together against the witches. IMO, in the very first story, they weren’t meant to have fought together against the witches.
I think in the original story, it might have been the other nymphs who helped defeat the witches. And that after the rule of the nine nymphs over the whole Magic Dimension ended, the different kingdoms like Solaria, Eraklyon, etc formed. You know, like how small kingdoms have often risen from the ruins of fallen empires.
I don’t know what you guys will think of my theory, as many have already told me that it seemed ridiculously improbable, and that it’s more of a delusion. Some of you might have the same opinion, but this is the conclusion that I’ve come to after quite some in-depth analysis of the story, and comparison with some other fantasy genres, and other similar & different stories. By the way, it’s the only such theory that I’ve got. I haven’t more crazy theories similar to this one in store. 🙂
