I dont know about anyone else.. but I really like Harmonix. The design
looks really pretty, and I love the colour scheme. Yes, the
transformation is dangerous, but I always thought of it like, if a fairy
was doomed and had to lose their powers, at least their last
transformation is pretty af.
I’ve been considering an Alternate take
on Winx Club cannon lately, rewatching the show and working on some
alterations as a frame work for a alternative telling of the show,
not quite a full blown AU, but just some slight differences, like the
fandom approved ability for Fairies to access any transformation
they’ve acquired rather than being stuck using the latest one they
And Speaking of the Fairy
Transformations: lets talk about them in the Alternative Canon.
Please note the
Alternative Canon is more than just: they can swap between
transformations they already have whenever they want, some of the
requirements, properties and meanings are different and also require
I’ve also been thinking of
making a side blog just for my Winx stuff but I don’t know if it
would be worth it. All I’ve really got is the head cannons for the
AltCan Winx Club, and the Astr'ix AU that started off as a AltCan
Where was I? Oh right!
…How do I put things
'under the cut?’ cause this a long ass post and I’m so sorry for putting it all over your Dash.
Lets start with the
first fairy form:
The 4Kids dub referred to
it (and fairy magic as a whole) as Winx, Rai called it Charmix. In AC
universe there is no name for it, as the most basic for of fairy, all
fairies will achieve this form, so it is typically just referred to
as 'fairy transformation.’
In some circles it is
(jokingly) nicknamed Basix, these circles are typically
multi-formed fairies. E.g. the Winx Club by season seven.
The basic most form of a
fairy, the only requirement is to be a 'fairy’ and connect with your
power. The resulting costume is a combination of a fairy’s
personal style, and the manifestation of their magic.
The second (and typically
last) form fairies gain, Enchantix is achieved not through the act of
sacrifice, but that single instant of clarity when a fairy realises
how far she is prepared to go to protect or save others. Though this
does typically happen in a moment of actual risk, thus beginning the
rumour a fairy had to sacrifice herself for a person from their
Part of the manifestation
of this Will to Protect is Fairy Dust, the manifestation of a fairy’s
magic and their desire to help people, it enables a fairy to dispel
dark magic, and in some cases, heal people.
The Enchantix also grants
fairies the ability to miniaturise.
At Alfea, many fairies
gain their Charmix before their Enchantix, leading to some confusion
on the proper progression of transformations. The Charmix is earned
by facing yourself and recognising your own weaknesses, accepting
yourself and your preparation to change.
The Charmix boosts a
Fairies powers when in use and (passively) also allows a fairy to
'collect’ transformations and use them at will, rather than being
stuck using only the latest transformation a fairy has acquired.
(This ability has led to the transformation being called 'A Fairy’s
favourite type of Charm Bracelet.’)
These three are some of
the only fairy forms that require personal reflection, understanding
and/or growth, this is also why they have the most deviation in
appearance between fairies.
Most other forms are
created for specific purposes and tend to be both gifted and some
what uniform in appearance.
Another Alfea speciality,
the 'Three Wings of Clariel’ are gifts given to students of Alfea who
have earned both their Enchantix, their Charmix and proven themselves
to be potential Guardian Fairies. The Three Wings can, once obtained,
be used from any fairy form. They grant the fairy the power to fly
faster than any other known wings, to see recent events or past
moments of intense emotional impact, and to teleport. The exact range
of teleportation differs between fairies but the Zoomix allows
instantaneous transport between two worlds, only the more powerful
fairies can transport from one end of the known universe to the other
in one shot.
The Wings were crafted by
Clariel, one of the Founding Fairies of Alfea.
The wizards of the Black
Circle are Fairy Hunters, who rip the wings off of Fairies to steal
their powers for themselves. They managed to figure out how to
nullify the effects Fairy magic had against them, and so, managed to
terrorise the magical universe, until the Earth Fairies figured out
how to combat their nullification spell, by altering the fabric of
their own magic just enough to get around it. Realising the danger,
and unable to create a patch for the spell, the Black Circle waged
war on the Earth Fairies, culminating in both sides being imprisoned
in time dilation fields.)
Believix is the
manifestation of the Earth Fairy ability that allows them to over
come the Black Circles 'immunity’ to Fairy Magic, it is gained by
receiving the Blessing of an Earth Fairy. The Winx Club received
their Blessing by accident when Earth’s Fairy Princess Roxy placed
her trust in the Winx Club.
Roxy herself cannot obtain
a Believix form because the Believix power already exists with in
her, regardless of the transformation she wears. This is why Roxy’s
basic fairy form and the Winx Club’s Believix forms bear a
resemblance, in addition to the Believix form taking some of its
style cues from Roxy’s 'fairy style.’
The Lovix and the Sophix
are gifts from the Earth Fairies Aurora and Diana, and so contain a
trace of Believix, which is why the three outfits appear to be
variations of each other.
The Lovix protects the
user from freezing temperatures, natural or otherwise, and grants a
minor ability of ice while in use. (It should be noted all Fairy
Forms protect the Fairy from Cold and Low/Poor Atmosphere to a
certain extent, but the Cold Protection of the Lovix is Infinitely
Like wise the Sophix
protects against humidity and heat, as well a bugs, it gives the
wearer an improved connection with the Voice of Nature.
These two forms are two of
several Gifts of Magic that exist, several forms of the Lovix and
Sophix exist and merely require the Blessing of a Major Fairy of the
correct power type.
The Harmonix is an
underwater form which can be obtained by bonding with a selkie from
the fairy’s home world. Capable of transitioning between air, land
and water, the Harmonix allows fairies to operate at otherwise
impossible ocean depths.
When a fairy needs to
travel at great speeds, the long train of the skirt and leg ribbons,
instantaneously transform into a mermaid tail that can propel the
fairy and otherwise unobtainable underwater speeds. (it should also
be noted: as an underwater based Form, the Harmonix does not have
soled shoes, just pretty leg ribbons.)
A transformation that is
Exclusive to the Infinite ocean, it enables fairies to swim as fast
as their tailed Harmonix forms, and grants them a deeper connection
to the oceans of the universe. It requires the Harmonix form and
access to the Infinite Ocean to achieve.
A modern rendition of a
more Primal Fairy Form, the Bloomix is granted by receiving a small
spark of the Dragon Flame. This form has a higher attack power than
any other, but a fairy’s healing abilities can be lessened as a
result, it is the Warrior form of fairies. The users of this form
were, in Daphne’s prime, referred to as Nymphs.
The second 'world
exclusive’ form, It requires a Wand from the Legendarium world to
manifest, and can only be used within the world of the Legendarium.
It protects users from the Fugue of the Legendrium, a curse which
steals Fairy Magic if a Fairy remains in the Legendarium too long.
The Blessing of Wild
Magic, this form is acquired when a fairy manages to obtain a
compatible form of Wild Magic. (Compatible in this case meaning
freely given, not stolen for selfish purposes, fairies who have
received the Blessing of a Major fairy of Nature are more likely to
prove compatible with Wild Magic.)
'Pocket Dimension’ gear,
allows a fairy to access world inside pocket dimensions with out
suffering the effects of 'pocket distortion,’ a magical cousin of the
bends which occurs when moving to, from and around in Pocket
Dimensions during the initial 24 to 36 hours.
(Granted by a friend of
Daphne’s who lives in a tiny clam in lack Roccaluce and specialises
in dimensional magic. Technically one of the Gifts of Magic.)
Allows Fairies to enter
the Dream World, and fight in it. Originally gifted by Morpheus***
(early ssn2) as a one use transformation, recharged and earned ssn8.
must at this point admit I have not finished season seven, I had
trouble tracking down the episodes and I just…. oh my goodness….
this season… I have however watch WoW, and enjoyed it as a back to
basics, but some of the season was a bit… yeah… (they fairy
animal thing was really forced and weird okay, and none/very few of
the transformation terms are the same as cannon, why did they even
need to visit the mini worlds? I don’t know! I’m so confused… I
spent most of Nex’s screen time yelling 'Who. Are. You?’ at the
screen even though I know who he is…)

***(Morpheus was a
character in the comics in an alternate introduction to Aisha story,
he opened the door for the Winx to enter the world of Dreams to free
Aisha from Darkar’s nightmare curse thingy.) There are several
occasions where a Fairy may use a Transformation she has not yet
Earned, or should not be able to wield, by gaining Authorisation from
Higher Powers like Morpheus, or The First Fairy Arcadia and her
Powers like Fairy Dust and
Miniaturisation can be used in forms other than Enchantix but they’re
less potent/harder to use/require more magic
It should also be noted
that 'new’ does NOT mean 'more powerful,’ but it does mean 'more

Alternative Canon Original
temporary fairy transformation powered by the water stars (Bloom must
let go of the Dragon Fire completely for the duration of its use or
risk the destruction of the universe.)
'Water Stars’ the Winx collected from the alternate dimension weren’t
the Actual Water Stars, they’re amulets which allow the girls to
channel the power of The Water Stars, from their realm into the realm
of the Winx, like Bloom does for the Dragon Fire. (Which is why they
just so happen to be thematically linked to the six fairies)
Suiseix > Harmonix
transformation was authorised only once, but once the power of the
Water Stars was withdrawn from the amulets, the Winx were allowed to
keep a less powerful echo of the form: The Harmonix.
the Infinite Ocean requires a bonded Selkie to take you (the first
time). Serena, Daphne’s bonded Selkie was frozen by her gate on
Domino. In her ghost form, Daphne was unable to do anything to help
her, unsure if she was even still alive within the ice. Using their
sisterly bond to create an empathic link, and aided by the Harmonix
power of the Winx, they magically pull Serena into Lake Roccaluce
where they manage to thaw her using the Dragon Flame and Fairy Dust,
and she bonds with Bloom. (Selkie can form multiple bonds, especially
if their Bonded is the magical equivalent of a ghost.))
