The fanbase is obsessed with Winx Club‘s past, but like I said last November, I don’t wanna keep reminiscing. I wanna look toward the future. I don’t care what happened or could have happened — I wanna focus on what could happen. That’s what “What If Wednesday” is about.
In this new feature, I’ll look at the potential in the show as it is now. I’ll talk about ideas that haven’t been explored; think of ways Rainbow could develop certain characters, concepts, etc.; and try to come up new interpretations of old topics. Like with Thursday Your Say, you can suggest things for me to talk about, if you want to.
What will I not talk about? Any of the dead horses the fanbase loves to beat. You know what I mean:
- What if [insert super-popular character] comes back?
- What if the Winx have to fight [insert super-popular villain(s)] again?
- What if the Winx revert to [insert the most popular transformation]?
Those topics may sound like they’re about the future, but they’re really part of the fanbase’s pining for the past. I don’t treat any time in Winx Club‘s history as ideal or the status quo. The show doesn’t need to regress. Rainbow just needs to use what’s in it now as well as possible. My posts will have ideas for how they could do that.
The first post will be about my favorite Specialist: Helia. He’s Flora’s boyfriend, he’s handsome and romantic — and he could become more powerful than anyone realizes. Stay tuned!
