If the Winx hadn’t earned Sirenix in one “lunar cycle,” they would have lost their powers forever! Good thing their Selkies were there to guide them!
Oh…and their Sirenix Guardians, too. Right?
Give me a break! They were helping the Sirenix Book sabotage the quest!
It was a simple set-up. The Book gave the girls a riddle, which led them to another riddle, which led them to a gem. Once they collected all three gems, they got another riddle (sigh) that led them to the Source of Sirenix in Lake Roccaluce.
Each riddle took the Winx about a day to solve, which means they could have finished the quest in a week. So why did it take them a month?
Because the Book only showed up when it felt like it. It wanted to waste their time and stress them out.
And when it did appear, it was always at inconvenient times — like during a certain lost kingdom’s renewal ceremony. But the Winx had no choice but to answer the call of duty. (Don’t worry, Book. Bloom didn’t wanna spend time with her birth parents anyway.)
They knew where the gems were. But every time the Winx asked them for help, their answers were riddles themselves. Or sometimes they just gave a sassy remark along the lines of, “Figure it out yourself.”
Thus, the Winx came hours away from being ordinary, magic-less girls. No wonder few fairies have gained Sirenix!
Okay, I hope you realize I’m joking. The Sirenix Quest was already too easy, but what if the Guardians had told them exactly where to look? How boring would that have been?
So, let’s be glad the quest was rigged. 😛
QUESTION: Let’s say you’re a writer for Rainbow (or Nick), and you got to help plan out the Sirenix Quest. What would the story have been like?
