Day One & Introduction
••• Day One •••
Something that Gareth is fond of saying about the Witches is, "All we really know about the Witches comes from Faerie tales. After all, from whose viewpoint is the Winx Club written?" With that in mind, I thought that the best way to learn about the Witches then is to live among them for a week. So we packed our bags, hopped the tranportus to the Planet of Alfea and emerge at the gates of Cloud Tower. We expected resistance but were surprised when the Witches invited us graciously and eagerly in. We were not allowed to wander around on our own though. You can find yourself face-to-face with some pretty nasty things at Cloud Tower if you don't know your who's about's and where's about's so we were assigned two Cat-Witch Guards, the angora Matchka and the blue-point Siamese Mieze, to escort and guide us. During our seven-day stay we got up close and personal with many of the Witches and the exchange of information was an eye-opening experience for both sides. I did my best to be the objective observer and to record everything that went on as carefully and truthfully as possible. Here then, are the fruits of my observations presented to you as The Cloud Tower Travelogue.
