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!

  1. I imagine it would work exactly like how programmes for exchange or international students work.

    The schools could create an “initiation” course during which the Earth students would be taught several crucial things about the Magic Dimension, starting with basic geography (or astronomy rather?) and history, all the way to subjects such as the civilizations from other planets and just how to get around and understand how everything works in a universe where magic is a way of life.

    It would help them better adapt to such a place and understand its origins as well. Maybe it could even lead to some of those students deciding that, after finishing their studies, they want to move to Magix or another certain planet permanently, pretty much how some international students choose to permanently settle in the country they did their studies.

  2. I think that it’s something that eventually will happen.

    Getting to the Magic Dimension wouldn’t be a problem. Bloom has travelled a lot of times from Earth to Magix (and vice versa) and so on the other Winx. Also, Selina made her way to Cloud Tower without any problems (As far as we know).

    Getting used to magic might be the hardest point, but if you are studying in a school in Magix, it’s supposed that you have magic powers or items.

    About how would the Magic Dimension students treat Earth students, I think that they would treat them as a normal person. Bloom hasn’t had any problem, nor Roxy. And, being honest, there’s no difference between a student from Domino, Solaria or Linphea. They treat each other with complete normality.

    As can be seen in the series, Alfea has students from a lot of different planets, and I bet that their students would have to adapt to the “Magic Everywhere” concept.

    (It’s my first time posting there, hello everyone!)

  3. Nice. I really think that adjusting to life with magic would be the best route, also unless everyone’s a Trix they wouldn’t have too much trouble being accepted. No one questioned Mirta at alfea…but then again that might have been because she was “With Flora”

  4. They already have a school up for future earth fairies and everyone on earth knows about magic after season 4, (well they knew about it midway throw the season but sematics)

    • Also you ever notice that Roxy should have had enchantix three times throughout season 4. Once when saving Artu, the second when the Earth Fairies where set free and the third when she saved her mother… Funny how that works.

          • Debatable.

            I don’t know exactly if Rainbow ever released an official statement regarding what form she has. The fact that Roxy is a Believix fairy in the doll line does not mean anything – there are also “silver Believix” and “gold Believix” dolls and special lines that never existed in the series.

            If Believix is acquired when someone who did not believe in magic begins believing in it, then Roxy should have gained hers together with the Winx. She already had powers that manifested, so reasoning that she had not yet unlocked her powers automatically falls short.

            Then how did she gain her Believix? She willed herself into it or just unlocked it when one of the wizards angered her. Does that sound familiar? Bloom unlocked her Winx when the Trix mocked her and nearly killed her, she also willed herself into her Enchantix/unlocked it by focusing all of her strength and anger into one point.

            Roxy did not believe in herself when she got her transformation. If we follow the Bloom Enchantix case, she could be in an incomplete Winx or yes, maybe even Believix. Only then it could make sense why she never got her Enchantix (other than neglicence on the side of the writers, of course). In WOW she almost transformed, but of course the writers had to somehow deflect that and not show us what form she has.

            Now really steering from the subject, I hope the writers have big plans with her for season 8 or season 3 of WOW and just wanted to keep her new form a surprise.

          • I honestly think she’s just a Believix fairy in marketing and a Charmix/”Magic Winx” fairy in universe. Rainbow gave her a Believix-style form so that she’d fit in visually with the Winx.

            Something we keep ignoring is there are two versions of her wings. The wings with the paw print pattern on them are her Believix wings, and they were frequently used in the comics, on the website, and in merchandise.

            But in the show, she doesn’t have a pattern on her wings. I think that’s the difference. Granted, we’ve seen her called a Believix fairy with these wings, too, but not in the show.

            It’s confusing, but that’s how I look at it.

          • @OP
            I completely agree with you.

            In marketing, it does not matter how she acquired this transformation, what powers she does not have access to, whether or not the Believix song plays during her transformation etc.; all that matters is what she looks like and she looks like a Believix fairy.

            In the show however, there are tons of things that confirm that she is in her Winx/Charmix. Nothing at all suggests that she is in her Believix. Pretty much the only thing that does not match it is her wings (not even her outfit, as it is very simplistic compared to Believix outfits).

            However, I don’t think the two versions of wings matter, since the version with the paw prints is just official art; all of the Winx have different wings in the series than their official art. For example, Bloom has very different hearts on her wings in the official art and in the animated series.

    • Just because a school exists on Earth, doesn’t mean that’s where they should go, After all Roxy’s not the only fairy in alfea to have a normal sounding name Evie, Carol and Laurie…minor fairies from season 6 might be other Earth fairies who like Roxy (and in a symbolic way, Bloom) went to Alfea. I think school choice is actually dependent on what the fairy in question wants. Some might want to be close to home (why Miele’s not at alfea probably) and others might want to explore the universe (those like Bloom and Roxy, even if Faragonda practically forced Roxy into coming to Alfea.)

  5. I second Beatrice’s thoughts, of it being essentially an “exchange student program” situation. As for them adjusting to “Everyone around me has lived with magic all their life, what do I do?!”, since the students live in clusters of six, three or five people (Alfea, Cloud Tower and Red Fountain respectively), I’d assume they would put at least two people from Earth in each cluster so that the other roomates can help them adjust to magic, and have the other Earth person to chat and “let out” all their thoughts and feelings about experiencing magic since they’ll have some common ground.

  6. What I’m wondering is how they find the people with magic powers that are from Earth (people who don’t know they have powers). We saw in season 4 that magic beings (or fairies, at least) can sense the presence of other magic beings, so maybe Nebula just sends her workers throughout the planet to find them and take them to Tir Nan Og? And from there they are told “Hey you have magic”and all that?

    For the most part, I think the students from Earth would be treated okay. Some people might get irritated at them for “slowing down the class” or whatever, but most of the students and teachers seem like they would be pretty chill with it. (I could see Cloudtower especially having problems with this; they seem to have a bit of a fast moving curriculum where if you don’t understand this right away, you’d better get your butt on it NOW. But even then, I don’t think Griffin and the witches are completely evil, and I think they’d be willing to help a new Earth student – just in a bit of a ‘tough love’ kind of way.)

  7. are you talking non-magical or magical? maybe macy can go there and become a fairy and mitzi can go to cloud tower to become a witch

        • But Mitzi’s such an obvious one and she’s Bloom’s high school rival. Bloom’s learned to move past the petty rivalry after moving to Alfea, finding out that she’s a powerful fairy, etc. Maybe if Rainbow gave her more of a personality outside of making her as unlikeable as possible then I’d probably be on board to see more of her.
          As for Diaspro, Rainbow just needs to have her move on. The comics would’ve done a better job of this had they went through with Diaspro’s resolve in “The Return of Princess Diaspro” instead of resetting the status quo. She’s much less malicious in the comics but she’s still there to cause Bloom and Sky unnecessary problems.

  8. It’s already been said, but I can see this as being more like an international exchange student program. Well… an interdimensional exchange student program. Maybe every school in the Magic Dimension with an interest in training/teaching newer magical beings from Earth can train scouts so that finding said students would be easier? ‘Cause, as Faragonda puts it all the way back in S1, she wasn’t even aware that magical beings, let alone fairies like Bloom, were still on Earth. It’d probably be easier to seek out people with budding magical powers now that Earth has its magic and fairies back but I’m pretty sure the Earth Fairies have their own problems to deal with and can’t really scout out potential fairies as much as they’d like.
    Plus, if different kinds of schools sent out their own scouts then these people just now realizing their powers would have much more of a choice in what they want to be. For example, if they just left it to Nebula, someone who’s only accustomed to fairies and fairy magic (even its darker aspects), how would she handle the situation if she found a girl, boy or group of youths that want to become witches or wizards that use dark magic? Would Nebula still be okay with teaching a wizard after what she’s been through? She could mainly avoid all these factors if other schools sent out faculty members or trained graduates as their own personal scouts.
    There’s also the Tree of Life that they could use as a natural detector and focus in on its Earth branch and the leaves that bud from it.

    • I don’t think Nebula could train a wizard. She’s a fairy. It’s a different type of magic (from what we can tell).

      I forgot about the Tree of Life! That means the Pixies could even be involved in helping find these new magic beings. It would give them something to do besides causing trouble. 😂

      Ooh, what if someone else tried to interfere with the search? Someone trying to corrupt magic on Earth by making these magic beings into witches or even dark fairies? Now, I wanna see a whole season about this (in Winx Club, not World of Winx)!

      • Heck, if this could make the Pixies relevant again (without being forcefully shoehorned in), I’d be all for it. It’d also give Ninfea and the former Codex Pixies something to do. Like maybe Saladin could task Athena with finding any leaves on the Earth branch that represent new wizards? Or Griffin with Discordia for new witches?

        That could be an interesting idea but how would they go about it? If they wanted to act under the radar, I’d imagine that it’d be very difficult to do so, even with the Winx back in Magix, because of the Major Fairies and Morgana.

    • Not interdimensional. Earth is apart of the same dimension as Magix. The actual Dimensions in story are the Infinite Ocean, Golden Kingdom, Obsidian (its been destroyed), Oblivion, The Dimension of Legends, and the Mini Worlds.

      Intergalactic more like it.

        • They kinda are. See they are too “big” to be microscopic worlds. Big in this sense that they are too detail of a worlds to be small enough to fit into such things like a water drop. Furthermore their discrition as wholes “Close by and far away, or near and far” means they are pocket dimensions housed within a object.

          • They’re not worlds in the same sense as the planets in the Magic Dimension, but they’re not other dimensions. After all, they’re inside objects that exist in the Magic Dimension: leaves, drops of water, diamonds, etc.

          • @OP

            That actually makes them pocket Dimensions given that like the other objects or magic we seen points to it. For instant The Golden Kingdom has a point one can enter from the magical dimension yet its another dimension as is obsidian which looks like a huge asteriod in space.

            Furthermore the way they are talked about lines up with how pocket dimensions work. They are small places that are separte from out world yet connected to it lining up with the pocket dimension having a separte dimension that’s connect to the bigger one. It also explainswhy everything is as big as it is and why the winx are breathing air within whats microscopic worlds likely within things like a statues and a water drop. Because serious at the size they are… the Winx shouldn’t be able to breath (never mind some of those worlds would never get any air like the diamond world).

          • Well the water world would still have sirenix magic in play, the tynix wings as Aisha noted worked similar to the sirenix ones in that world. Especially since we were told in season 1 that “losing powers” doesn’t actually happen, it’s just a mind trick for teaching lessons according to Daphne. That’s a hiccup with the legendarium absorbing the sirenix power, but I think Bloomix fixed that detail since the Dragon Flame is basically power regeneration up to that point before new powers were added. The diamond world does lack air but I personally think that having the dragon flame essentially removes almost any limitations…it’s just aside from Bloom…Flora’s the only one who’s showed any real competence in using it whether it was her own enhanced raw power, healing magic or using related magics (using all parts of nature to help her instead of just shooting vines or petals/leaves everywhere like whenever bloom summons a dragon) Stella tried the healing magic but nothing else. That is to say Bloom did Flora a major favor in Bloomix…the dragon flame boosted her already growing confidence up a notch. Now if Stella and the others would have tried more dragon flame explorations it probably would have been unnecessary for the other levels after Bloomix because…Dragon Flame…nothing should be impervious to it but the water stars. That’s a major plot hole.

          • @Will N

            One of the other reasons them being a pocket dimension msakes sense is that… some of the mini worlds aren’t excatly in a stable place. A drop of water will evaporate or worse so what happens to the inhabitants? Actually how are they even there? That drop likely not that old given that coastal religions are usually warm (especially around Califorina where paradise bay is suppose to be) so those creatures their diiesn’t make much sense.

            The pyros world is within a volcano… one erupts and its likely to be gone. Also the digmole statue world. How is a ancient power within a likely man made object?

            See them being pocket dimension can easily explain it all as with pocket dimensions their is no fear of external forces destroying the dimension, only the gateway to it.

          • Of course we’ll never get a explaination on how any of this works because Rainbow drops anything after it serves its propose. I honestly don’t know if they themselves remember the Winx can minturize, make people believe in magic breath underwater, or whatever anymore with each no transformation… or care that the first time travel escapade nulllifies the whole opening plot because the saved the digmoles which should have created a paradox… and I’ll stop because thinking about this just maakes me angry or annoyed

          • I wish people would stop saying, “They forgot…” They’re not goldfish. The abilities of each transformations don’t accumulate. We know that already. The only exception was Enchantix to Believix. For whatever reason, the Winx could still use fairy dust and miniature, but they only did it once.

            The other transformations are for special situations.

  9. Somehow I feel like the realm colleges are either pre or post Alfea schools, because Alfea is supposed to be the best place to learn magic with the others being more specifically on a certain type of magic. Especially when the winx talk about Alfea like it’s the IT place. Maybe have something explained about it later.

    • Even before season six, Alfea, Cloud Tower, and Redfountain weren’t the only schools in the series. Avalon taught at a place called Malacoy Academy before he came to Alfea. Of course, Chimera came from Beta Academy, another fairy school that’s supposedly top notch. There were also other schools mentioned in the comics, but the only one I remember right now is a wizard school the Winx visited.

      All that to say, the realm schools could have existed, too, but like you said, they’re not as good as Alfea. The psionic school may be an exception, since that’s a different type of magic. (I wanna know more about it, to be honest.) The only two we know came later are Hagan’s forgers school and the Tir Na N’Og school.

      • Actually was their ever a reason the Trix attacked them? The schools and what not. Actually how many of them exist are they all divided into different magical teachings like CT and Alfea, one gendered or is a few have co-ed?

        I’m kinda bumped they where just one offed things in season 6 so much possiblities.

        • I think Linphea’s co-ed. Some of the boys had wings. They look like specialists a bit but their wings were similar to those of the winged Domino boys in the movie, just instead of green wings, they had grey ones. That means male fairies do exisit, but they never touch on it. I think they should though especially since Bloom and Flora’s realms have them that we know of. Maybe season 8 could explore that concept in a b-plot. The A-plot will have to still be “random upgrade of the season for x reason”

          • Yeah that’s a big criticism I have. Instead of worldbuilding like tthe first ffew seasons they are focusing more on the transformations… why? I get iits to sell toys or whatever but come on you stilll havve older fans at least try to build the word.

            Regardless yes male fairies where/is kinda a thing but hey they are a rarity or Rainbow keeps forgetting they exist… or don’t care.

          • @OP

            Ok yeah they are but your right not in ways we’ll like. I admit I’m one of them so your right to call me out on it.

          • Which is why my fanfic does actually give a reason for why we don’t see “sprites” as much. They can’t get directly involved, if they do…the universe will be wrecked even moreso than episode 624 wrecked it- does that episode have a warning lable for plot holes yet?

          • @Will N

            Ok that doesn’t sound right. Actually they sound OP and no one likes the whole “OP characters” unless of course its played as a total joke (though even then not even that much). Though the male fairies did get invald in the Linphea collage fight. The most common answer I get is something along the lines “Dragon was a girl”

            Also no that’s the most ever any villain ever did nearly rewriting the universe.

          • @ Dragon, they’re not overpowered, it’s just that they’re more dangerous than the girls because they have more obscure powers like Lazuli and are more creative with their magic. Actually the one i’m focusing on is still learning because he just found out. It’s the fact that sprites are more creative than fairies that makes them dangerous- the exact thing that used to make Bloom actually a dangerous enemy for some villian. Too bad they did away with that in season 5.

          • @Will N

            Don’y you mean how alll fairies used to roll before season 5? Cause before that every fairy used their power in creative ways

  10. as for the earth fairies where did they first come from? nebula is only queen/headmistress until roxy becomes either a full fledged fairy or of age i’m not sure how that works

      • I wonder if Roxy’s family is the direct ancestral Earth family. Roxy really should have gotten that pink mythix wand, not Eldora. If Roxy is in the direct ancestral family of Earth, that would explain starting as Believix. We know that the Winx are the descendants of the 7 ancestral fairies…and it would be logical for Roxy to be there (of course multiple wishful thinkings there, but I see minor hints towards membership…mainly the fact that the Winx can’t do jack didly squat without her to keep them in line and make them think about what the transformations are about…after all she is the battery for Believix.)

        • Actually no… see in season 5 the Winx come another world in the magical dimension in order to start the Sirenix quest. It was the world of the first fairies so that calls the whole “Ancestral fairies” thing into question.

          The first Fairy Aracida another being is now a being that exists outside of time and the Actual first Fairies are Etheral and where born Before Time, likely as the Great Dragon’s first creations.

      • Yet in season 5 the Winx visit a world which the first fairies came from as well. So that calls that into question. Also Witches are the same species as Fairies and the first three of them came from another dimension or the like.

        • I forgot about that place. I guess that can be connected by saying that’s where the Ancestral Fairies landed, and eventually they spread to other worlds. After all, Nebula said the Ancestral Fairies crossed over to the real world, but she didn’t say where in the real world.

          • I don’t think so. The Legendrium was made as a way to connect the two realms so it seems that isn’t the case. Furthermore Arcadia existence calls into question that as she’s a native of the Magical Dimension and is the first fairy outside the Etheral ones.

            Furthermore Nebula is likely talking about them the Earth fairies in regards that they are descended because this seriously calls into question the relationship of the Dragon Flame, the Ancestral Witches, Witchcraft and even Sirenix and nymphs. Furthermore the Ancestral Wands are keep by the Earth fairies instead pf Graynor or any other realm in the Magical Universe which would make far more sense.

          • If the fairies had the Mythix wands, they would have been able to leave the Legendarium World on their own. After all, the Winx didn’t use the Legendarium to travel back and forth. Also, Nebula said the fairies spread throughout the Magic Dimension including the Earth. So she wasn’t just talking about the Earth Fairies.

            I admit I’m not sure how the rest would fit in. Maybe the Earth Ancestor took the wands because they need to be kept somewhere people would be least likely to look for it.

          • See most of the artifacts on Earth are either native to it (White Circle, Black Circle) or are brought their by someone else (The Legandirium). The Ancestral Wands seem to be the former as the Later calls into question why anyone would bring them to earth if the Wands are artifacts of the the first fairies. Such a important Cultural Artifact would be kept in Magic Muesum like the Amulate of the Ancestors and even the object that was used to seal away the Water Stars.

          • Also this is now making me call into question the other magical beings and whythings like Pixies and the Tree of Life is connected to fairies. Arethey all native from the Legendiruim? How can they all use magic if Magic is created by the Dragon Flame. Why arenn’t they like the fairies from actual mythss and tales which steal chuldren… why are fairies human? Also why are they so common in the universe in the first place!

            … and this is why Winx Club needs a backstory book or something cause from the bits we get the universe has two condictory histories.

          • Why does she get to decide where the wands end up? See this is why I question if Nebula is even telling the truth about this or if it’s been infused with myth and legend (makes sense given how the legendiruim operates)

            Avalon pointed out this with the first fairy. Which everyone says it’s someone else when really it’s Arcadia.

            This brings into question what part of the whole wands thing is fact and what part is myth. Personally this means we can dismiss the whole Ancestral Fairies thing as with the legendiruim that’s where things break down.

          • Cause a few things Selina summons from the book… have disappeared from the “real world” or have been extinct or dead for a long time. They exist in the Dimension of Legends however due to the stories told about them.

            This is where the whole thing seems to mmake the most sense. The Ancestral Fairies from the Legendirium world are most likely based on the Legends of the first fairies from Graynor as rumor and myth in the real world gave themm form. Because the two are basically the same what was historic and myth blurred over time.

    • Graynor is the Ancestral home of all fairies. Does this count earth fairies? Likely? Are the descended from the Ancestrals fairies, also likely
