Retooling The Yin-Yang Couple Blog
Posted On May 1, 2021
A month and a half. That’s about how long I spent writing, editing, watching old Winx episodes, and gathering screenshots to craft a solid counterargument for my YouTube comment response series. And the commenter’s only takeaway was, “Wow, she’s so articulate!”
I’m not kidding. They said Aisha and Nex have no meaning, and my analysis of Winx Club, especially the characters, is just overthinking things. But I sure can write well! ?
Why did I bother if this person would dismiss everything I said and judge my posts like an essay on an English test? ? I’ve been out of school for years. I don’t write for grades anymore.
Anyway, the reality is most people are driven by emotion more than logic-based arguments. We’re sentimental creatures. Anything that makes us smile, ticks us off, or tugs at our heartstrings holds our attention.
So here’s my idea: I will become the go-to girl for Aisha and Nex fanfiction and fan art. After all, what is Winx Club? Fiction and art. If it got this couple into this mess, it can get them out of it.
Don’t worry. I’ll still write analysis posts because I love speculating and digging up details we may have missed. Unlike real life, stories are planned. An artist designed each character, hence why they look and dress the way they do, and the writers scripted their actions and dialogue.
Analyzing these things is about getting into the minds of the creators and asking, “Why?” It helps us become better creators ourselves. Plus, I’ve always been a curious person. “Why” is my favorite word.
But first, the question is, “What?” What will happen next in these fanfics I haven’t finished? ? I know how they end; I just haven’t sat down to write them. Focusing on fanfiction will give me a chance. I’ll also have non-Winx AU fanfiction on my other site: AishaAndNex.com.
I hope you’ll enjoy it!
