Winx Fanfiction: “The Exchange” — Part I

The sun began to set over Magix City. Arms around each other, Princess Aisha and her boyfriend Nex strolled past the shops downtown. She laid her head on his shoulder and sighed. What a day it had been — sweating it out in her gym, surfing on Magix Beach, eating dinner at their favorite café. Too bad it had to end.⠀⠀⠀ ⠀

“It’s getting late, sweetie,” she said. “I better get back to Alfea.”

“Aw, not yet!” Nex threw his arms around her shoulders. His weight knocked her back, and she grabbed onto his jacket to keep from falling. They both laughed, then embraced each other, exchanging kisses — on her forehead, on his cheek.

Her ringtone broke the mood. Aisha slipped her phone out of her pocket and pressed the send button. Out of the screen popped a hologram of her mother, Queen Niobe, looking as frantic as the hero of a horror movie.

“Aisha, darling!”

A shudder tore through the fairy’s body. “Mom, what’s wrong? What happened?”

“Oh, sweetheart! Your father! They’ve taken him!”

“What? Who’s taken him?” She gripped her phone like a vice, her hands trembling.

“I don’t know! They’ve surrounded the palace! The guards — they’re all —”

“Don’t worry, Mom! I’m coming!” Her phone nearly fell as she shoved it back into her pocket. “Nex, I have to go home! Right now!”

He nodded emphatically. “I’m coming with you!”


Author’s Notes

Why is Part I so short? Because I started this story on Instagram, so I had to worry about character limits. I may finally finish the story, but I still keep each part short.

Is Nex gonna have to save Teredor to prove that he’s a worthy suitor, like La Prova di Nex but with higher stakes? Or will Nex accidentally do something to put her father in more danger, causing a fallng-out between the two, and then they eventually make up and team up to rescue Teredor at the end? There are lots of ways this could go, so I’m intrigued.

You could share the story on…or that wattpad website (although that one sucks). There was another site which had some Winx fanfics on them, just can’t remember the name.

“Archive of our own” was the name. It has some Winx and Regal Academy stories.

I just checked your story on there. 30 hits only ?. Maybe Archiveofourown isn’t as popular as wattpad/, so that could be another reason as to why it only has a few clicks.

But you’re also right. If the name “Nabu” appears, the readers get interested. Write “Nex” instead, and the -potential-readers tune out. It’s a shame he gets hated so much. I mean, he isn’t even a villain, yet he gets treated like one! Not even c-list villains like Chimera, Chimera’s mom or Diaspro got so much heat.

Here’s a thought: What would happen if he turned evil due to a spell, but was still together with Layla/Aisha, perhaps even turning her over to the bad side? Would he be more popular then because of the trope “evil is sexy”? Would the fans then accept them as a couple, even if they’re the “evil power couple”? There has to be a way to make Nex loved and respected. I don’t know what could work though.

It’s a shame so many people are too stubborn to let go of their favorite ship (Nabu x Layla/Aisha) and appreciate new pairings. Everything would be easier if we all were united in the community but instead we are divided.
