What If Wednesday
107

Today’s “What If Wednesday” question: “What if the schools in the Magic Dimension let in more students from Earth?”

The Winx brought magic back to Earth three years ago. That means new fairies, witches, wizards, Specialists, Paladins, and more are waiting to be discovered. Someone has to train them — or else their skills will never grow, and magic won’t spread on Earth.

Queen Nebula knew that. That’s why she turned Tir Na N’Og palace into a fairy school. Maybe more magic schools will pop up on Earth one day. But Alfea, Cloud Tower, and Redfountain are the most famous schools in the Magic Dimension. They should open their doors to these students, too.

Of course, admitting Earth students wouldn’t be easy. First of all, how would they get to the Magic Dimension? Portals? Magic keys like in Regal Academy?

Second, could the students adjust to living in a realm where magic is everywhere? Bloom and Roxy have done well, but not everyone would have a fairy club to support them. Also, they wouldn’t understand what magic really is and what it’s for. Even Bloom had the wrong idea at first, thanks to fantasy books and fairy tales. Maybe the schools should create a curriculum to teach Earth students about magic life.

Finally, how would the students from the Magic Dimension treat the Earth students? Would they accept them or give them a hard time? The professors might have to teach them to be patient and helpful.

The novelty of “Winx on Earth” is fading. If the girls start helping people from Earth adjust to life as magic beings, that might make this gimmick interesting again.

That’s it for today!

No, I’m not done talking about World of Winx. I’m just taking a break from it.

I’ve had this idea for a Winx Club/Regal Academy crossover for months. It practically writes itself since these shows are so alike. Rose’s story even starts out like Bloom’s: a teenage girl from Earth learns she’s from a magic family and enrolls in a magic school in a magic realm. (What do they teach? Magic! What else? 😛 )

Winx Club already has a framework to bring these shows together: season six. Here’s how it could work.

The Magic Dimension and the Fairy Tale Land exist side by side, unaware of each other. When Acheron made the Legendarium, he unknowingly built a door to the Fairy Tale Land (which he called “The Legendarium World”). You know how the doors Rose and Travis use to get to school look like books? It’s the same idea. Their keys work the same way as the Legendarium Key — the Winx could unlock the Legendarium if they wanted to — and the Legendarium Gate is like the portal at Regal Academy.

Even the Mythix wands fit into this. Everyone at Regal Academy has a wand, right? If fairies came from the Legendarium World (a.k.a. The Fairy Tale Land), it makes sense they’d have wands, too (even if the school didn’t exist yet). The magic inside them is known in the Magic Dimension as “Mythix energy.”

That’s everything we need. Now the Winx just have to meet Rose somehow. Some fans have said her hometown looks like Gardenia, so why not just say it is? Everything magical happens there, anyway. 😛 Even if it’s not, the Winx go to Earth so often, it wouldn’t be too cheesy for them to bump into her one day.

I think this would be a fun crossover. 🙂 Rainbow could use the CG Winx models from Mystery of the Abyss, or they could make 2D versions of the Regal Academy characters. Or they could do both like in seasons five and six. (Please, no. Not again. 😕 )

Either way, I’d love to see how these casts of characters interact with each other. Rose would probably get along best with Bloom and Stella — Bloom because of their back stories, and Stella because they could talk shoes and fashion together. Astoria would probably latch onto Tecna, since they’re the brains of the groups.

Joy? I don’t know. I’m thinking Flora. And the boys could take some lessons from the Specialists and Paladins.

What do you think of a Winx Club/Regal Academy crossover? Would you watch it?

By the way, Zap2It and TV Guide say the next episode of Regal Academy, “The Legendary IronFan” (1X14), premieres tomorrow at 7 a.m. EST on Nick. Don’t miss it! 😉
