What If Wednesday
197


Today’s “What If Wednesday” question: “What if Tecna becomes an ambassador for Zenith?”

No, don’t leave! Let me explain.

Remember how King Cryos didn’t wanna join the Sovereigns’ Alliance? He kept saying Zenith was better off protecting itself. After all, they have the most advanced technology in the Magic Dimension. Zenith sounds like an isolated realm — open to tourists but closed to foreign relations.

After the Winx saved him from his techno-drones in “Listen to Your Heart” (5X22), he changed his mind. Tecna then wished for everyone in Zenith to feel connected to the rest of the Magic Dimension. Does that mean the realm’s attitude changed? Maybe, but she can help keep it that way.

She’s been all over the universe, so she knows how to deal with different types of people. Plus, she’s a Winx, a well-known hero. Who wouldn’t listen to her?

Most of all, she doesn’t follow Zenith’s “logic over feelings” ideal anymore. That’s why “Listen to Your Heart” was a good title for that episode. It wasn’t just about Cryos. Thanks to the Winx (and Timmy), Tecna has learned to trust her heart more, too. She can help Zenith open up to other cultures and appreciate emotions.

I know this sounds far-fetched, but what’s the alternative? We don’t know what her dreams and goals are. All we know is she’s great at inventing things and loves to tinker with technology. Why not use her knowledge to help her realm?

Plus, three of her friends will be queens one day. I’m sure they’d welcome her into their realms. She could even help modernize them.

That’s it for today. Like I said last time, I have a list of “What If” topics already — yes, this was one of them — but if you have an idea, feel free to send it to me.

So, about that season seven premiere…

Yeah, I’m annoyed, too. The waiting game’s getting unbearable. I hope Nick Jr. fixes those so-called “technical issues” soon. Wouldn’t it be sad if World of Winx premiered in the U.S. first? (Great. I bet I jinxed it. 🙄 )

At least this give me time to wrap up my season six reviews. Sorry for the lack of posts these last few months. I just finished floundering through another semester of college. Now I’m working on a custom template for the blog, and I hope to have it ready it by early January.

I could use a break from coding and color scheming, so let’s talk about the best and worst episodes of season six. For me, the worst were easier to choose. I enjoyed many of the episodes, but none of them stood out to me. In the end, I picked two I liked a lot and the one I felt was obviously #1. (You can probably guess it already.)

Let’s start with the three worst episodes, so we can end on a positive note. Read the rest of this post

Now this is a surprise! Rainbow made a video of ALL the Winx’s transformations from seasons 1-7! That includes Charmix from seasons one, two, and the Nick specials; the 3D Enchantix, Believix, and Sirenix from the movies; and Roxy and Daphne’s transformations. (Roxy’s grouped with Believix, while Daphne’s grouped with Bloomix even though she’s a Sirenix fairy.)

With eleven years worth of footage to go through, something was bound to get left out. They forgot Aisha’s Charmix/Magic Winx transformations — both from the original and the Nick specials. That’s a shame. Her Charmix is my favorite. 🙁

Still, the video’s worth watching for nostalgia. Bon appétit, Winx fans!

Surprise! (Not really. 😛 ) Rainbow made a compilation video for the English channel, too — the 15 most “viral” videos of the year. Here they are:

15. Fashion! (0:00)
14. App Winx Fairy School – Official Launch Trailer (0:44)
13. Winx Club Fairy Artist App! (2:04)
12. Pixies (3:07)
11. Best Of – Episode 4 Season 6 (4:08)
10. Winx Fashion Show! (9:12)
9. Mythix Musa (10:20)
8. Thank you all, fairies! (10:39)
7. Who is Selina? (12:03)
6. April Fool’s Day! The gift video for your… perfect magical tricks! (12:49)

3. Fairy Channel (15:52)
2. Trailer and magic of the sixth season of Winx Club! (16:38)
1. Best Of – Episode 1 Season 6 (18:40)

If you compare the two lists, what could you say about Italian and English-speaking fans?

  • We like Musa’s Mythix sequence (my favorite 🙂 )
  • We like episode 6X01 for some reason (I bet it’s because of “Way of Sirenix” — pretty catchy song)
  • English-speaking fans need more shows and events (seriously, all the fun stuff happens in Italy) 🙁

Fun fact: even though #1 and #2 were both trailers for Mystery of the Abyss, #1 had almost three times more views (134,603 vs. 347,619)! Maybe it’s because it’s shorter. You know what they say about our attention spans. 😛
