After watching the Dreamy episode again, I don’t get a threatening feeling from Nova and Bossy’s meeting with Dreamy on his way to meet Nova. I think Bossy is just being . . . Bossy – and is just telling Dreamy the only thing he knows about being a dwarf. But I get the impression that the Blue Fairy is somehow able to see the future. She makes a comment about how he and Nova will bring happiness to many people if they don’t runaway together. I don’t think Dreamy was threatened into not going with Nova, I think he made the choice himself based upon what the Blue Fairy told him. She also said that Nova would lose her wings. I didn’t get the feeling she was threatening to take Nova’s wings away, it felt more like she was telling Dreamy that’s what happens if a fairy chooses to leave – she looses her wings and can’t get them back. Remember that Nova had told him that more than anything she wanted to be a Fairy Godmother, so I think he decided that he didn’t want Nova to loose her wings and miss her chance at becoming a Fairy Godmother.
I do think that under normal circumstances it’s probably true that dwarves aren’t supposed to be able to love and are probably just created to work. But Dreamy had the whole fairy dust thing happen so he is different. What I don’t understand was what they were trying to do with the interaction with the Blue Fairy and Nova in the very beginning of the episode. So far the Blue Fairy has always been portrayed as very kind so it was a bit odd to see her as sarcastic and, honestly, kind of mean and rude toward Nova. So I didn’t know if they were trying to set up right away that Nova was an airhead fairy – which kind of made sense since they tried to make her be kind of an airhead nun. That part just seemed odd.
Anyway, I just got the impression that the Blue Fairy was hinting that Dreamy and Nova are going to be part of something important that will make many people very happy – which made me wonder if they would somehow be part of breaking the curse.
