It's Kikurukina writing. For those of you who don't know, the four Nick specials that were aired over the summer are not the original "productions." They are the condensed versions of 52 episodes worth of story. That's two seasons! The series first originally aired in 2004.
While the specials are true to their source material, they did leave a lot of information out. I am writing this post today to point out some of the minor but probably important things about series. In this post, I want to address Musa's basic back story: her family and her wealth.
Recently, I received a fanfiction review that made me cringe. My story is about Musa talking to Helia and at some point, she muses about her lack of wealth and low social standing when compared to Helia's fan-made enormous family wealth and fan-made noble family history. (Read it here if you wish.) Basically, I outline that Musa is fairly poor and wishes that she had the wealth that Helia had. This is the review I received:
"Why did you have the need to write musa's social standing? For all we know she could be as rich as stella."
For those of you who don't know, Musa is poor. She is likely the poorest of all the Winx Club members. She is not rich as Stella. She is far from it. This was vaguely hinted at in season one and season two goes into further depth about her history.
Her father is Hoboe and her mother is Matlin (Wa-Nin?). Her mother was a classical singer and Hoboe fell in love with her after seeing one of her shows. If I remember correctly, Matlin gave up a life of success and fame for Hoboe. They both fell in love, got married and then had Musa. They both pursued music passionately despite being a little financially in trouble. One day, Matlin became terminally ill but the family could not scrape enough money to buy the medicine to keep her alive.
Matlin eventually died and Hoboe swore off music. He destroyed
So now you know why Musa is poor and why she has family problems.
Overall, I am sure that this will not be my last post. If you want more details about the episode, I suggest that you watch it rather than have me try to sum it up. (Older fans, feel free to correct me. I'm sure that I am mixing up some of my Cinelume canon with 4kids.)
