WINGHAVEN: THE WINGSTERS’ WORLD

WINGHAVEN IS A TINY PLANET ORBITING EARTH. IT IS ALSO THE HEADQUARTERS AND HOME OF OUR CELESTIAL COURIER COMPANY, ‘LITTLE WINGSTERS’.

Winghaven is a planet, floating through space, singing and reflecting earthly sounds of daily life and laughter in its ‘music’. At the core of the little blue-green planet dwells the mighty Moya.

Moya sends the four angels out on ‘projects’ all over the world, helping children in distress. Moya, apart from being MotherMind, is ‘Dispatch’ and appears as a dense cluster of tiny bright lights which form and reform into various shapes, like an electric flock of starlings, entertaining and comforting the little emissaries whenever they return for a debriefing. Sometimes the cloud of lights forms loving hands enfolding the four of them after debriefings, or wings, spirals, flickering flames or crashing waves of gold., a playful presence composed of a swarm of tiny lights who listens via the planet’s earphones to the requests and yearnings of children everywhere. When the angels go out to help, each brings their own special ability to match the kids’ needs.

When Dispatch isn’t dishing out tasks to the four couriers, she composes the sounds emanating from Earth, sometimes with a full orchestral accompaniment, depending on her mood.

She has a broad sense of what comprises music, so the sounds become a beautiful mashup of conversations, sounds from nature and everyday civilisation from all over the world. 

The Slynaps tree grows straight through Winghaven, its trunk forming part of the decor of Moya’s office at the centre. Its crown catches passing star-seeds in its feathers, forming cocoons from which hatch new baby angels.

The pilot begins with Coco hatching, and meeting her fellow couriers. The other three Wingsters help Coco out of her cocoon and introduce her to grumpy Ignatius, ( winged sheep and the planet’s ‘manager’) and The Keep, where they sleep. They explain that she’ll invent her own ‘apartment’ in there, as they have done.

Coco meets Moya who explains how the roots of the Slynaps Tree absorb every thought children send into the ether. The information then passes through the earphones and the speakers into Moya’s Central Dispatch. Coco is intrigued by the singing planet.

At the beginning of each episode, Moya summons the angels via an announcement from the red postbox.

Usually, there’s a short video of the child in the situation on the screen. The angels then locate the child by thought and are there instantaneously. The children of only one family feature in the TV series, along with one or two of their friends.

In each episode, one or two of our chubby heroes will be assigned to a specific child in its situation. They communicate among themselves by thought too, so they all grasp a situation instantly.

This can and does lead to chaos, and then Moya must rescue the rescuers with coincidences and odd occurrences and a sparkle here and there. But they try never to disappoint her.

THE VERY GRUMPY 
GARDENER

Sometimes, Winghaven’s pet/gardener, Ignatius, eats the printouts on his way to ‘take them to the angels’. Apparently this is due to absentmindedness.

Usually he feeds off the blue green grass of the planet. If he misses out on fresh messages, he also likes fallen Slynaps feathers. In his (many) unsociable moments, he curls up for a nap or a sulk on top of the ever-patient Slynaps Tree.

AT THE CENTRE OF IT ALL, LITERALLY, IS MOYA, WHO SENDS THE FOUR ANGELS OUT ON ‘PROJECTS’ ALL OVER THE WORLD, HELPING CHILDREN IN DISTRESS.

Winghaven is a planet, floating through space, singing and reflecting earthly sounds of daily life and laughter in its ‘music’, made by the mighty Moya, who runs everything from the core of the Little Wingsters’ blue-green planet.

Moya, apart from being MotherMind, is ‘Dispatch’ and appears as a dense cluster of tiny bright lights which form and reform into various shapes, like an electric flock of starlings, entertaining and comforting the little emissaries whenever they return for a debriefing.

Sometimes the cloud of lights forms loving hands enfolding the four of them after debriefings, or wings, spirals, flickering flames or crashing waves of gold.

The Slynaps tree grows straight through Winghaven, its trunk forming part of the decor of Moya’s office at the centre. Its crown catches passing star-seeds in its feathers, forming cocoons from which hatch new baby angels.

At the beginning of each episode, Moya summons the angels via an announcement from the red postbox, often with images from the child’s mind on the screen. The angels then put on their satchels and wings and are there instantaneously. The focus is on only one family, along with their friends.

The Postbox

The Postbox

Accompanied by a classic ice-cream van tinkle, printed instructions issue from the slot above the screen on this postbox which Punki found on a street somewhere far, far away. (Nobody seemed to be using it.) Videos of the children and their situations appear too, sent by Moya from her control room at the core of the planet. The Wingsters arrive into Moya's office at the core of the planet through a door at the back of this postbox.
The receivers at the end of the Slynaps roots

The receivers at the end of the Slynaps roots

These receivers wave about in space, picking up the laughter, happy thoughts, hopes and fears of children all over the world.
The Keep

The Keep

The Wingsters’ apartments are located in the Keep. Each one is a magical space. Punki’s apartment has an alien cityscape outside; Inga has a Viking castle; Coco has a snug circular room (straight out of Timbuktu) with views to infinity; and a Greek temple is what Xuki has dreamed up. So the entrances to this dovecote are portals to other realities, and furnished according to each angel’s tastes.
Coco's Cocoon

Coco's Cocoon

Coco leaves this cocoon rather reluctantly at the beginning of the story, beginning her first day as a Little Wingster.
