Fly or Fall
is a Winx Club
based fanfic written by LoveLoveLovix.
Based after the events of season 4. When the Wizards of the Black Circle are defeated, magic begins to return to Earth and former ordinary Earth girls find themselves manifesting Winx powers. As a result, Roxy decides to delay her departure for Alfea in order to help find and help these new fairies. However, a new danger decides to reveal itself along the way in the form of The Apprentices of the Black Circle, looking to continue what their mentors were trying to do before they were defeated by the Winx Club: capture all Earth fairies and steal their powers...
