Actually the reason the cat that jumps from a higher floor survives is because the Air Force pushing against it equals its wieght so it's not accelerating, just moving at a constant velocity. The cat that jumps from a lower floor doesn't have enough distance to fall so that the air pushing in it doesn't equal its weight so it has an unbalanced force and is accelerating towards the earth :) (im a physics nerd sry)

Since you are really good at this you could involve season 2 in a sequel.

OH MY GOSH. THIS STORY IS AMAZING. I LOVE IT. Words cannot describe how in love I am with this fanfic. It's just, just...(screams in frustration and delight). Pure awesomeness. You keep in character and that's great! Amazing! I was gonna do one review per chapter but then I forgot and kept on reading because I was too impatient. Whoops.
Anyways, your writing style is amazing, and how you weave extra plot stuff into the stories to explain certain things is flawless. Seriously. You could be an amazing writer with all the depth you put into this. Your grammar is on point, and the story flows really well, with is a major plus for me. God knows how many stories that have a good plot, but the grammar is so horrible I can't stand it (I grew up with a teacher who was strict on grammar. She was called the Grammar Queen. We all loved her though because she was funny and amazing).
I see that you have a finished sequel and another so I'll be going to read them now! So blessed to have found this story.

I love love love loved this fic... It was really amazing to see the boys displayed in the spotlight. I noticed you got another two sequels. I am ecstatic. I was wondering when/if you are going to finish the 3rd one? I really would like to finish both stories! Thank you for writing the fic :-) Don't stop writing... Especially Winx Club stories.

My god I love your story. It's I trees ting to see the boys point of view. I was dying at the ending of this chapter reading about Rivens hallucination.

Line thingys are henceforth going to be called "indention"s.
Typo number 1: I blame spell check.
V1: Not only would it save Riven to emotion drama

Located at: sixth paragraph below the second to last indention
So the 4Kids version actually goes into people's background instead of saying "Ha ha, go read the comics, Wikipedia or anything else for background information, and would you also like this toy?" That's a point for 4Kids.
I'm glad that you also mentioned that Riven isn't completely unromantic, after all, he may be a jerk at times, but he still defends Musa once they get together.
I agree completely on the Romeo&Juliet standpoint. The fact that it's "The TRAGEDY of Romeo and Juliet" is completely lost now a days. She should have been screaming "Police! Police!" or "Nurse! Nurse!" when he showed up at her balcony.
You're doing a great job with the fanfiction, and if my reviews get off topic and start to criticize something that might be offensive, I ask that you please tell me so that I won't do anything offensive.
Thing I'm slightly ticked at the original creators for:
Having this magical musician-street performer/body dancer come in for plot and then never referencing her again. Seriously? Make it be Aisha/Layla and have it be a hint of what the second season has in store with this new character instead of just shoehorning Aisha/Layla in.
| Cookieninja16 chapter 14 . 4/6/2015

Riven and Musa. The overly corn-ified version of a complex relation with trust issues. The one thing that I'm one hundred and ten percent certain that RAI did better. I'm very curious to Riven's origins, that is something that 4Kids made more interesting from the samples of the script I've read through your work.
RANT TIME! *You have no obligation to read this*
UGH! How I wish that they'd done more character development with the world's rules and minor character instead of giving the show to a new add-on cast! Is Riven the progeny of a witch and a regular man? What is Riven's Timmy's last names? What is the dynamic between all of the Teachers and Headmasters? Is there a reason why Bloom never figured out she had powers on Earth for over 15 years? If Magix is a center of magical laylines that gives people a boost, then does Earth have the same or less amount of power? Is the whole magic thing an inherited trait or random? Can children like Flora's little sister use magic? If kids can see pixies because they haven't settled yet as shown in season two then is it possible to introduce them to magic in order to give them the ability to manipulate magic? How does Tecna's powers work anyways? How was Merdia able to become a fairy when she was a witch without any sort of wings? If losing your wings means you can't transform then how does a witch become a fairy? Are they accessing two completely different magical sources for their powers? If so how does that work?
Tecna's entire world doesn't even get a flashback like Musa's does. Pushing Kiko out of the way to make room for a bunch of pixies makes no sense! Completely decimating Lady as a whole is weird. Not going further into detail Daphne and Bloom's relationship with just one scene with Daphne as a kid picking up Bloom then putting her back in the cradle after her parent's told her it was time for bed was weak. Overemphasizing the fact that Bloom knows nothing about her birth parents was a terrible choice if she loves her real parents, the ones that raised her. Ignoring the glaring fact that Flora's mother and father weren't even mentioned when they visited her planet alludes to the idea that "it takes a village to raise an orphan" by just showing her little sister.
RANT HAS ENDED.
Shit hits the fan on mothers day. So very happy to really appreciate the warmth and love our mothers give.

V1 Your version or version 1.
CV Corrected Version
Typo Number 1: Grammatical error.
V1: and standing by his bed with a foolish grin on her face was Lady.
CV: and standing by his bed, with a foolish grin on her face was Lady.
Found at: Second paragraph after chapter announcement.
Typo Number 2: Missing s
V1: You are fully aware that nobody believe that.
CV: You are fully aware that nobody believes that.
Found at: The Tecna area. I wish they had done more with her character.
Typo Number 3: Missing an apostrophe.
V1: That guys a creep.
CV: That guy's a creep.
Found at: the part after the line thingy.
Is it part of their speech pattern to leave the "s" off of certain words? Secondly, from the flash back that Musa had about her home planet, I'm going to say that it isn't the best place to hang out. Maybe that's why she's the street princess, the concrete angel, I can't think of any more references.
To be honest with the whole "Riven and Darcy" thing in the first season is still better than what they did to the Trix in the latter seasons, essentially turning them into a harem for whatever bad guy comes their way. That's just messed up on too many levels.
Who the heck invents a nasal delivery for erectile dysfunction?! In their world/ area I get it, technology meets magic, but here on Earth?! That is weird.

Getting back into this. Maybe this will help me start writing for the Winx Fic I've got hidden away in my Doc Manager.
Now for the corrections.
"Typo #: type of typo
what the typo is
Typo Number 1:
"the schools cheif." change to "the school's chef."
Found At: The first Paragraph after End Dream.
Typo Number 2: Not sure if this is intentional.
"Looks at them!"
Found at: the first paragraph after the line thingymagig.
Typo Number 3: Repeated mistake.
Freshman is both the plural and singular form. Freshman's indicate ownership of something.
Found at: After the line thing.
Typo Number 4: Simple typo
"and that you'd better lift you game if you going to change that."
Way to fix #1: "and that you'd better lift your game if you're going to change that."
Way to fix #2: "and that you'd better lift your game if you are going to change that."
Found at: The end of the paragraph with Javelin. Nice name by the way. What's lifting your game? Is that an Australian expression?
Typo Number 5: Wrong variation of the word. Could be debatable on starting a sentence with But.
But it didn't easy Sky's mind. Corrected version: "But it didn't ease Sky's mind."
Found At: a little ways above the second line thingy
Typo Number 6: I'm curious to see how this would be defended.
to put together just one dragon bride.
Most likely version: to put together just one dragon bridle.
Found at: a little ways below the second line thingy. Would it be possible to make a dragon bride as some sort of bait for catching them?
Typo Number 7: changing sentence structure mid thought? The script was weird to begin with?
"I'd love to take one that date I missed last night." "I'd love to take you on that date I missed last night."
Found at: the fifth paragraph before the third line thing.
Were you in the military in Australia? How does that work over? Did you have to serve for x amount of years or something?
