Aisha/Nex Story: Expanding to a Series

Note: I’m talking about my non-Winx story formerly called “The Thread” (more on that in a moment).

My story will span about three years. I don’t wanna cram them into one “book”, so I’ve decided to write a three-part series. Aisha and Nex’s relationship will develop gradually throughout it.

This will give me a chance to:

  • Flesh out Aisha and Nex: For the most part, they’ll have the same personalities and backstories they have in Winx Club, but more complex. (Nex will actually have a backstory.) But their character arcs will be different, and I’ll explore some implications and plot possibilities Rainbow ignored.
  • Develop the couple’s relationship better: Two problems with the Winx Club couples are 1) they’re too basic, and 2) most of their relationships move too quickly. Rainbow doesn’t let the partners get to know each other before they fall in love. Instead, they rush to the good stuff — the romance — and use clichés and coincidences to substitute the partners growing attached to each other. I want Aisha and Nex to actually build their relationship, not just have one right away without much effort.
  • Develop the story better: The Inktober drabbles have been an interesting challenge. But with more time and more words allowed, I know I can do better.

Cutting “The Thread”

Yep, I’m ditching that name now. Sorry if you guys liked it, but I came up with something better.

“Book” #1, which will focus mainly on Aisha, will be called The River and the Sea. That name comes from the poem “On Death” by Khalil Gibran:

For life and death are one, even as the river and the sea are one.

I haven’t named the second “book” yet, but it’ll focus mainly on Nex. As for the third “book”, you’ll find out the name later. ? But obviously, the story will be about the couple together, and the overall plot will be resolved.

I’m excited about this! Right now, I’m waist-deep in worldbuilding, plotting, and character development. It’s a lot of work, but it’s a lot of fun.

Aisha and Nex inspire me more than any characters have, and I hope I can tell the kind of story they deserve.

“Cutting ‘The Thread'”
I see what you did there. 😉

I can’t wait to see how your story goes. I bet it’ll be awesome. 🙂 More Inktober drawings will be coming soon.

I have no doubt that you’ll be successful and I personally can’t wait to read your book.

Let these two wonderful characters inspire you to do great things.

Sorry if this is totally irrelevant, but it’s very important,
because it’s about my blog. I had to move to another host, WordPress.
As you guys know, my blog originally was on Webklik,
then i moved to 000webhostapp. I already had alot of complications with the host,
but now my worst nightmare happenend: They blocked my site.
And i recevied an e-mail, that they put my blog on sleepmode,
because i validated their rules, or something. Don’t ask me what
i did, because i don’t know what i did wrong to deserve this.
Releasing my website was alot of trouble. I had to send in alot of information about myself (even my ID). And i read that when ’i validate again’‚ my blog will be deleted forever.
Ofcourse as you can understand, i do not have time and care for that.
The only option now was to move fully to wordpress. And yes,
that means another url. That’s why i send this message (to what i hope
as many followers as possible). To let you know about the matter
and what the new url is. The new url is:
As you can see, there’s no – in de middle of it, because that was not possible for some reason.
Luckily, my best friend who helps me with my blog, had made back-ups of all
the things, so nothing’s really lost. I still am sad, that they putted my website
to block for a reason i am not aware of. I can’t think of something i must’ve done.
The website might be still a little choatic and messy, because we just started moving today.
Thanks for reading this. Have good day.

The reason is: Achieved daily website hits (requests) resource limit.
I’ve checked the e-mail once again,
and now i see it.

Me neither. Maybe because of the spambots, but how is that ever my fault? :/

spambots are something beyond your control so you’ve not done anything wrong but did you ask them what violation it was that caused this?

Isn’t it disgusting and
horrible how soms Winx-fans/Nex-haters don’t even know the name
of the character to begin with.
I’ve seen this alot in the fandom.
Some even thought his name was “Max” for some odd reason ?
I don’t get it. Is his name that difficult?

Ehh, not.
