Ha! Guilty as charged! I'm on the final book, Inheritance, it's really good. I'm amazed that you got that!
You have no idea what you're dealing with. I eat, breathe, and sleep Winx Club. I won't just name the episode; I'll also say who said it!
1) Icy, joined by Stormy, Season 1 Episode 8 "Day of the Rose" 4kids dub
2) Tecna, Season 4 Episode 1 "The Fairy Hunters" Rai English/Cinelume
3) Bloom, Season 3 Episode 22 "The Crystal Labrynth" I totally agree, Tecna is seriously under appreciated; heck, she had to almost DIE before she got some attention!
A Winx Club 4kids fan! I'm not alone in the world! Sadly, 4kids fans are slowly becoming something of an endanger species. Some Rai English fans really need to chill; 4kids isn't THAT different! I also am not a big fan of the Nick dub, but if I want to watch season 5, I guess I'll have to grit my teeth and get used to it.
Bloom: Unstoppable by Kat Deluna (Meh, the refrain fits, that's close enough.)
Here's the finale of Forgotten Destiny! Hope you like it!
"Let's get started, shall we?" suggested Bloom. "Fire Arrow!" A jet of lava-hot fire sped toward the superhero. Taking her time, she dived below the attack at the last moment then she raced like a bullet at Bloom's head. She didn't want to hurt her, but Bloom was planning to stick a sword in her, so that didn't allow much room for mercy.
"Flaming Armor!" A heart-shaped shield materialized, protecting Bloom and ricocheting WordGirl into the force field. She quickly recovered and proceeded to preform a complicated routine of spirals, confusing the fairy. Then, she zoomed behind her and pushed her to the ground. Irritated, Bloom got up again and prepared for her next attack.
"Dragon Fury!" This time, the beam went twice as fast, but WordGirl already had a plan. Swiftly dodging to the side, Bloom's attack was reflected off the force field and struck its originator instead. Bloom was forcefully blasted off her feet and was slumped in the corner, her eyes closed.
WordGirl cautiously approached her to make sure she was all right. By now, the other fairies had woken up and were banging on the force field, trying to enter and help their leader.
"Heart of the Dragon!" shouted Bloom as she sprang to her feet, revealing that she only pretended to be injured. The spell sent WordGirl flying to the other side of the room where she lay weak and defeated. Knowing her victory was near, Bloom mustered up all her remaining magical power.
"Dragon of Eternal Fire!" A mighty black dragon formed entirely of burning embers rose up at the fairy's command, ready to kill Lexicon's princess. This was the full power of Believix. However, the strength of her spell also shattered the force field. Without the wall to hold them back, the Winx Club surged forward, ready to help Bloom.
"Stay back!" Bloom commanded. "This is my battle! I'm supposed to defeat her myself." Still, they didn't listen. Layla was the first to reach Bloom, but in her haste, part of her hand brushed against the black dragon. Layla screamed in terror as the dragon reared up and charged for her with a might roar. However, at the last moment, it changed course and hit Nabu.
"Nabu!" Layla screamed, running to her fiancé. He collapsed to the floor and was breathing laboriously, about to exit this life. Layla knelt down and held him close to her chest, letting her salty tears pour on his face.
"No!" cried Bloom, turning away from the battle. "It was supposed to be me! I was supposed to lose Sky! I was supposed to bear the curse of Believix!"
"Lay… Layla," whispered Nabu weakly. Hand trembling, he reached up to caress her tear-streaked face. "These eyes, Layla, mustn't cry. Please, don't forget me, my love. I'll never leave you. Anytime, in any world, I'll always be with you. I love you with all my heart." And then he breathed his last.
The Winx Club started sobbing uncontrollably, torn apart by grief. They all embraced Layla, trying to console her in spite of the unthinkable that just occurred. Even Violet was crying her eyes out, which WordGirl thought strange since she barely knew him. But then she realized the fairies were sharing thoughts and emotions, which meant everyone was wallowing in Layla's grief as if it were their own.
Simultaneously, they turned to face WordGirl. "This is your fault!" they screamed. The black in the their pupils spread out like oil, eradicating the whites of their eyes.
With a bone-chilling scream of rage and pain, Bloom stood to face WordGirl with Nabu's corpse lying in between. From her chest, there emerged a mighty dragon of fire, even more powerful than the black one. This was the pure incarnation of Bloom's ancient power.
Just then, the clock tolled twelve times, heralding midnight.
WordGirl could feel a strange power roaring to life inside her. It ran wildly through her veins like a second heartbeat, desiring to be released. It flooded out of her, power radiating from her like ocean waves, bathing her in light. She glowed with light, her body turning clear and sparkling like a million tiny diamonds were encrusted into her skin. WordGirl was shinning more brilliantly than the sun, yet it wasn't harsh or blinding; rather, her beauty captivated everyone in the room, and no one could bear to look away. This young girl had been transformed into a goddess, the embodiment of perfection and goodness.
Then from Nabu, the wizard of life and death, there rose a beautiful, perfect purple orb, his spiritual and magical essence. It floated from the body to hover in between Bloom and WordGirl, its power spreading to both of them.
Now, WordGirl's power, the Light of Hope, had pooled together into one, pure ball of light residing in her heart. Yet something was amiss: there was something foreign inside it, something that didn't belong. A million voices, thoughts, and feelings streamed from it, overwhelming WordGirl's mind and pushing her to the edge of insanity. Like metal attracted to a magnet, this strange substance was straining to leave WordGirl's body, gravitating toward Bloom's power. Guided by Nabu's essence, the dragon coiled itself around the superhero like a snake, drawing it out as if it was a leech.
By now, the light was reaching a fevered point, reacting strangely to the power of Sparx and rattling around dangerously inside. WordGirl's cheeks were flushed, she was gasping for breath, her brain was going to explode from the overload of information, every nerve in her body was in overdrive, her heart rate was much faster than normal. Her power was going crazy, she couldn't hang on, she was losing control of her energy.
But maybe that was exactly what she needed to do.
With a loud cry, WordGirl lost control of the Light of Hope, letting its full power break free with the force of a bomb. Everyone was forced back, awed by its radiance. WordGirl felt the strange substance leak out of her and enter the dragon, causing it to glow even more. Then, the mythical creature absorbed the power of Nabu's essence, and it exploded. The superhero's light then slowly dimmed as she reigned in her power, and her skin gradually turned its normal tone.
"I… I can feel it!" shouted Bloom incredulously, her face glowing with joy. "I can feel my kingdom's energy! They've come back to life on Planet Sparx!" All the fairies started crying with happiness.
"It was Nabu's essence," said Tecna, wiping tears from her eyes. "Bloom's Dragon Flame pulled the essence of the people of Sparx from the Light of Hope. Then Nabu's energy brought them back to life!"
Just then, Nabu began to stir in Layla's arms, and he opened his eyes.
"Nabu!" cried Layla, holding him tightly. "You're alive too!" Everyone cheered happily, even WordGirl. Bloom turned to the young superhero.
"You were right, WordGirl," she admitted shame-faced. "There was another way to get my kingdom back. I wanted to take the easy way, but you never gave up. You're very special, you know? This city is very lucky to have you. Oh, and by the way, I'm really sorry about kidnapping you, tying you down with poisonous rocks, and almost killing you."
"That's okay, I guess. Well, I'm not dead, so no harm was done. I understand that you were just trying to save your kingdom. Anyone in your shoes would've done the same thing. You're going to be a great princess, Bloom, I know it. Just remember that whenever you're in a situation like this, there is always a way to do the right thing without taking someone's life."
Bloom smiled. "Protect life at all costs. That will now be the number one rule of the Winx Club."
"Um, this is nice and all, but can you please let us out?" asked Scoops, who was still trapped in the force field with the other two guys. Bloom snapped her fingers and it instantly vanished as if it never had existed.
"Bloom, what the hell do you think you're doing?" asked Diemos angrily.
"The girl is Lexiconian, she deserves to die! It's her fault your kingdom collapsed and you were sent to live a squalid life on this pathetic planet!"
"Diemos!" remarked Bloom, affronted. "How dare you address me in such a manner? Have you forgotten your place? My planet is restored; that is all I strived for. The girl shall live."
Diemos growled in fury, glaring at WordGirl. It just tore her to pieces to see her former best friend look at her like that. Could it all have been a lie? No one was that good of a liar. There had to be some truth to it, some small reality to their friendship, there just had to!
"I hope you die, Alexandria!" he shouted, shattering her last remnant of hope. WordGirl collapsed in anguish, his words cutting her heart like a knife. With a twirl of his cape, he vanished into thin air. Bloom was disgusted, and she was already making plans in her mind for his execution.
Scoops, Tobey, and Andrew ran over to WordGirl. "Alexandria, are you okay?" asked Andrew concernedly. WordGirl nodded, glancing at her wrists and ankles to discover there was no blood or scars, probably healed from the Light of Hope.
"Andrew, if you're Lexiconian, what are you doing on Earth?" she questioned apprehensively.
"My sincerest apologies, princess. Allow me to introduce myself. My real name is Icarus Solon, but if it pleases you, you may continue to call me Andrew. I am a member of Iustitia, an organization fighting for peace on our home planet. There is a global crisis on Lexicon, and we desperately require your help."
WordGirl stared in astonishment, her chocolate-brown eyes sparkling with excitement. Then, Icarus said the words she had been dying to hear for 11 years.
"Pack your bags, Alexandria. You're going home."
This ending was so cheesy, I'm sure Two-Brains is munching on his laptop. Sorry if that was a let-down, people. I can do cliffhangers, romance, battles, and angst, but when it comes to a happy ending? Pass the painkillers.
WordGirl lives after all! I know Nabu's not the wizard of life and death, but he needed to be. I just warped his last words from the "Day of Justice" episode, which I cried so hard in! Does anyone know if there's an official statement by Rainbow S.p.A. on whether he really died or is just in a coma? I personally think he died, but that's just me talking. Either way, I'm sure he'll come back, it's a kids show after all.
Turns out the curse of Believix was actually a good thing, because without Nabu dying, Sparx couldn't come back to life.
See, the Winx aren't that bad after all, just a bit misguided.
