What Happened to Winx Club by chocolatesmoothie
Hi everyone. Thank you for your comments and for your kind and helpful words.

The issue has more or less been resolved. The account was taken down not too long ago.

Honestly, I don’t feel good about what happened. I feel as though I was very harsh and overly protective of my work.

I normally try to give people the benefit of the doubt. The account after blocking me for three days, unblocked me to tell me she didn’t know it was my comic and claims they didn’t steal anything... I felt that I still had to report this account. I was angry. I may not have taken the high road here...
But I wanted to get my point across. Despite how harsh it was. I wanted this to be taken seriously. 

I’ll leave it at that. Won’t drag this on, because it wasn’t pleasant going through the negativity.

I’ll say this: i won’t stop people from using my work- so long as they know how to credit, and give disclaimers. That’s it.

In other news, I found a Spanish fandub of parts of the webcomic.

THIS is the type of use that I find acceptable. There’s an actual disclaimer/ credit and it helps that the soundtrack and editing is pretty great. I was smiling while watching. Even if I don’t speak Spanish.  It’s the soap opera feel. Very noice.

There’s like a subtlety to the use of the soundtrack and the transitions of panels. It’s really soothing.

Gracias to the people who blessed me with this dub.

Conclusion to Art Theft by chocolatesmoothie
Hi everyone. I guess I should have made this post sometime ago, or I could be overreacting...

But anyhow. An account on Instagram going as “almost.magical.star” and other related accounts (almost.magical.xana / almost.magical.ran / anything that starts with “almost.magical.”) has been using my content without my permission and without crediting me.

UPDATE: account is currently named “princess.staar._” ) 

(Please spread the word.)

I was told by my friend to do something about it. But- I wanted to give  the person/s creating the accounts the benefit of the doubt, knowing that this was made for their enjoyment. I also had a good laugh at the edits. It’s obviously- not my work. But I’ll get to my point.

It was when someone asked me on Tumblr  if I had changed the title of Star’s magic that I began to worry about my comic’s integrity and the spread of false information(?). I know my comic is just fanfiction, guys. But I don’t want people spreading false stories. 

So I approached the biggest account (almost.magical.star) in Instagram and tried to talk to her about placing credit.
I sent her a lengthy and strict message. But after waiting less than an hour or so, I couldn’t comment anymore. And then the user was no longer found. Evidently, it seemed I was blocked. :V Girl, I was shooketh.  My friend said she also deleted my comment there.

Maybe my long words  had her shooketh, but I wanted her to know I meant business. The right thing to do was to credit me. I had no intention of taking her down. But she blocked me right away. Which is.... ouch.

Regardless,I am NOT encouraging you to attack these accounts- but to be vigilant of whatever stories and false information people are spreading.

It’s a sad day when an artist worked so hard on her project and it’s taken, and then you’re BLOCKED for speaking up. 

I know, I’m on hiatus guys, and I’m sorry. :(The circumstances surrounding my comic make it hard for me to come out on top of this situation. Fanfiction vs fanfiction. I don’t find it fair to tear down fan accounts when  Almost Magical is essentially just that. My current situation is... complicated.. :/

Thank you guys for your comments.  :heart: I know I don’t reply to all of them but I love you all.:heart:

UPDATE: after reading your comments as well as discussing with a friend who has proof that artists like BrokenAmylee and DragonShinyFlame have had there works used in the same manner as mine, I’ve decided to file a report. (If they see fit, I encourage these artists to do the same)This is not cool and I should have done something sooner for those in the same situation. Getting blocked was a red flag. OOF. 

I am attaching an image of the account after I was blocked.

Make Your Move
Ayyy. Hope you're all doing well.

I know I haven't been posting anything in months:'( And Winx canon stuff no less. So have some HeliaxFloraxAnagan(?) fan art XD I wrote this YEARS ago :'v and came up with it when i found out Anagan had a crush on Flora in canon. 

I realized I never posted this. T_T This is a collaboration I did with Star-Reacher about two years ago? This for you, Jas :'V 

I win this years award for Wort Procrastinator and Friend- again. I did the lineart and dialogue while she colored this beautifully :heart:  

Jas and I have known each other for years and we actually got to meet last July! She flew all the way from Europe to South East Asia for a post-graduate summer program and came to see me after. :'D After 7 years of friendship, biiiish. You're amazing and I miss you hahah :')

Hello.

Just a fresh interior designer who dreams too much and loves fashion design, cartooning and animation. I live and breathe for art and beauty.


So I've been working on a Winxclub Next Gen fanfiction webcomic for the past six years. (Sounds loco, I know. Like, 6 years? You'd think this girl had a life or something. It's been a struggle finding the balance. Oh well) Despite how crazy working on it seems, it is a very personal project and I can honestly say, it improved my craft, and my writing skillz. I hope you find the time to check it out. ^^

Hi! I just came across you and your comic today and let me just tell you
HOLY HECK ITS SO GOOD Fangirl - Lucy Fairy Tail 
I love all the characters and how you designed them both visually and personally
I usually think "next gen" fan made things are ok but I can see yours being canon it's that well done, everything flows well and makes sense and I'm so hooked on it
I've been a fan of winx since the day it released (seen all episodes and movies, I guess you can say I'm a bit obsessed lol) but you do it justice and I can't wait to see more from you!!!!!
Keep up the amazing work!

Hello. I totally love the way you designed Palladium. He looks even more handsome now ^^' I don't know if you see this as a question for spoilers so I will just ask. If you think you might spoiler with answering this question it is totally fine if you don't answer my question. So here it is: Professor Palladium had quite a "big role" in the 1st and 2nd season of the original Winx.After that he didn't seemed to be on the screen that much anymore wich dissapointed a lot of fans including me. Will Palladium appear more in your comic ,,Almost Magical" or might he just "dissapear" like in the original Winx? With dissapear I mean less "screentime" than before. Thank you very much for reading all of this. Have a good day.
