Old Uniform vs New Uniform

 New: [pretend Sky and Nabu are not there : ) ]
- Lost of cape
- Snazzy studier-looking armour
- No more colour-coded badges on their chest
- They look like elite soldiers

- Awesome cape
- Spandex-like material
- Badges
- They looked like superheroes

Which uniform do you prefer?

Does anyone think that the new uniforms will appear in season five?

Possible Season Five Images?

The following are images found on the internet. There is no proof that these images are official screens from season five. For all we know, they could be a leaked technology preview, screenshots from some obscure video game in Russia or fanart. At the bottom of all the images is an address to the Russian blog MagiaDelWinx, for all of those who were curious. The images were found on the blog Winx Club Blog by Olgawinx.

Believix Costumes from Russia

The picture of Tecna in background is actually fanart.
By the way, isn't that stock art of Layla also fanart?
These are some really nice costumes compared to ones we can buy for Halloween. They must be pretty expensive.

And The Winner Is... (Story Included!)

Winx Club: Topaz and the Phoenix's StoneChapter 1: Topaz of Diamente
By Kikurukina Bal Des'cagel and Phoebe
Monday, September 6, 2010

Kikurukina and I... Are finally finished! We really didn't expect this to take so long, so we're very sorry for that! Don't worry, the next chapter isn't going to take half as long. So, as you probably guessed, we have our winner! Dun dun dun... AMY, the artist who created TOPAZ!!!!! Congratz, girl!

Leave a review for the story on Fanfiction here!

Enjoy the story!

"The Phoenix is an immortal magical bird made from the breath of the Great Dragon. Every millennia, the Phoenix bursts into fire and ash and from those ashes, a new egg is found. The egg is incubated in the hot ashes and a chick hatches. That's how it is reborn. Of all the creatures, the Phoenix is symbolically opposite to the Dragon. The Phoenix is a symbol of femininity as the Dragon is masculinity. I'll leave the rest of the details up to your fellow classmates for next week's class presentation. Now, questions on today's topics?"
A few hands in the classroom went up.
Professor Avalon snapped his fingers and then the class was bathed with light. He answered the questions promptly as the windows' curtains parted to let in sunlight and the professor's magical slideshow on the chalkboard disappeared. The professor continued: "I want to have your groups and your chosen subject in before you leave."
Bloom glanced in her periphery to Flora, silently asking if she could join her group. Flora smiled. Bloom had nothing against her best friend, the blond princess Stella, as a teammate, but she often ended up doing more talking about their boyfriends than actually getting any work done.
Their Bestiary class was ending and Professor Avalon had just finished a two hour lecture on about a dozen of the most socioculturally important magical creatures on their side of the galaxy. Alfea School for Fairies was in its third week of the first semester and about everyone was settled into the weekly routine.
Flora turned and faced Bloom, pulling out the list of creatures that had been discussed.
"What do you want to do?" Flora asked.
"Um…" Bloom was about to say, "Dragon," when she realized that it would be too easy of a topic for her. She was the fairy of the Dragon Fire, after all.
"I don't really want to do Griffins after the Mirror of Truth thing…" Flora said uneasily.
"Yeah..." Bloom agreed. "No dragons, no griffins."
"I want to do Phoenixes."
Bloom readily agreed, liking the idea of researching a beautiful and fantastic bird.
The two fairies stood up and gathered their things to join the queue in front of the professor's desk. They were the last group to write down their name and subject.
There was a knock on the door and Miss Griselda entered, toting her usual clipboard and frown.
"Professor, I'd like to introduce you to your new student." Miss Griselda disregarded Bloom and Flora's presence as they filled out the signup sheet. "This is Topaz, she's a latecomer to the college. This is her first year here, but she being placed in your third year classes."
Topaz was a girl of about medium height wearing an orange dress and her long wavy brown hair was tied in a ponytail. She had sapphire blue eyes with a smile subtly pulling at her cheeks. She held a small stack of books in her arms and she smiled awkwardly at everyone, including Bloom and Flora.
"Hi." Topaz's voice was fairly soft, almost inaudible because of the first-day nervousness that struck every student.
Miss Griselda nodded to Topaz. "I think that you can find your way now, Topaz. I'll leave you to your own devices. Classes start tomorrow at eight and breakfast starts at six-thirty. If you have questions, you can always ask them." Miss Griselda pointed to Flora and Bloom. Sure that her fledgling was in good hands, the disciplinarian left.
"Hello, Topaz," Professor Avalon greeted warmly. "You'll have quite a bit of catching up to do in my class. All of my class handouts and presentations can be found online and there's also some required reading to do. Right now, we have a bestiary presentation due next week. That counts for your final mark so I'm afraid that I'll have to place you in a group." The professor turned to Bloom and Flora: "Girls, would you mind having Topaz in your group?"
"Sure," Flora said. Bloom nodded.
"Good." Professor Avalon wrote down Topaz's name with Bloom and Flora's on the signup sheet. "You'll be doing a presentation on the Phoenix, Topaz."
"Thanks," Topaz said to Bloom and Flora, watching them from under her thick eyelashes. The three fairies walked out of the classroom.
"So where are you from?" Bloom questioned eagerly as soon as the door was behind them. She was always excited to find out where people came from and what their powers were; the diversity was so fascinating! After being raised on Earth, she thirsted for every drop of information about magic.
"I was born on Diamente, but I was raised on Melody. I heard that Princess Galatea is at this school, is it true?"
"Oh, yes," Flora said. "Our friend Musa is also from Melody. She's friends with her. If you don't mind me asking, how come you're starting so late in the year?"
"My mom and I are kind of in the middle of moving and I had to help her, since it's only just us two."
"And your dad?" Bloom pried.
"Why is this any of your business?" Topaz said parsimoniously.
"I'm sorry; pretend I never asked," Bloom said quickly. The fairy felt a pang of sympathy and did not wish to bring up anything painful on Topaz's first day of school. She also felt a little stung from Topaz's reaction as she had not expected the defiance.
"I… never mind," Topaz sighed as she straightened her shoulders and walked ahead of the other girls to their dormitories. Flora and Bloom left it at that.
They arrived at their dorms and that is where they had parted. They agreed to meet together in the library after dinner to start the bestiary project.

~ ~ ~
"The Phoenix is a symbol of fortune and can be considered the harbinger of good and bad luck. It is unknown how many Phoenixes there are, one that travels across the universe or an entire race of firebirds as diverse as fairies. The Phoenix is universally recognized in most cultures, in one form or another. Sometimes, they can be mistaken for dragons." Topaz closed the encyclopedia and pushed it away from herself.
Across from her, Bloom was finding the same facts in another encyclopedia.
Bloom dropped her pencil. "Our presentation is going to suck, there's nothing on these guys!" The fairy sighed and looked at Topaz intensely. "I don't know if it's right to ask like this, but what are your powers?"
Topaz smiled as pushed a lock of hair behind her ear. "I have powers over gemstones. You know Princess Diaspro, that really crazy one? Kinda like her."
"Oh." Bloom glanced away, refusing to show how affected she was by the name Diaspro. Topaz did not need to know that story.
"Um, are you the Princess Bloom of…?"
"Yes, I am," Bloom answered hurriedly.
Flora summoned a stack of books pertaining to bestiaries and magical birds with a wave of her hand and was disappointed by the small pile before her. Most of them were small and held very little information, or had the same information in different words.
Flora pouted. "If there's nothing here, there's surely something at Red Fountain. They're the ones who specialized in these kinds of things. And then there's also the municipal library in Magix. Maybe we can go on Friday afternoon? All of our classes end early. I can also take a detour in the RF library when I go to visit Helia tomorrow." A slight blush burnt on her cheeks when she said Helia's name.
They all agreed and arranged to meet after class on Friday to grab the shuttle to Magix.

~ ~ ~
Flora's foray into the Red Fountain library proved much more successful than the one into the Alfea library; however the topic of the Phoenix was limited to ornithological reports, a compiled list of possible sightings and boundless crackpot theories. Bloom, Flora and Topaz were joined by Musa, Layla, Stella and Tecna. Musa and Layla were doing a presentation on Dragons and Stella and Tecna on the Cockatrice.
Normally, one would think that pairing Stella and Tecna together for a project would result in Tecna doing all the work. Tecna, however, was not the pushover who would let that happen. Stella respected that in the technology fairy, as well as Stella could respect anyone. It allowed her to actually concentrate and do the work.
The three groups sat apart in the Magix Municipal Library hunched over old volumes. Topaz wrote down the number of a book that had interested her and that she had found on the digital catalogue. She walked out of the Science section and to Literature section but she did not realize it.
Her fingers danced across the book spines to the end of the shelf. Unexpectedly her hand crossed another that pulled out a book.
"I'm sorry. I need this," the other person said rather rudely as he walked away.
Topaz brushed off the occurrence until she realized that the person had walked away with the book she was looking for. She quickened her pace, trying to catch up to him.
"Hey!" She called out, before realized how loud she was. He had his back to her, and seemed not to even notice, still walking. "Um, hey? Can I check that book for a minute?"
The stranger stopped abruptly, and Topaz almost ran into him. He turned to scrutinize her.
"Strange," he observed. "Do I know you?"
The dark-haired blue-eyed stranger was aboutthe same age as Topaz, or possibly a little older. He was quite a bit taller than her, and Topaz recognized his clothes as very, very expensive brand names: dark jeans, suit jacket and a silk shirt. He seemed out of place in the dusty library.
"Uh, I don't think so. I'm new around here. Look, I'm sorry to bother you, but can I borrow that book?" Topaz pleaded softly, both of her hands clasped together.
The man gave her a blank stare and then turned, replying coldly, "I have somewhere to be. You can have it when I return it."
Topaz glared at his distancing back, mumbling something nasty under her breath. Crestfallen, she sighed and turned back to join the others.

~ ~ ~

Slowly, Topaz adapted to her new life in Alfea. She knew she had to if she wanted to keep up her good grades.
After a particularly strenuous day, Topaz fell into bed. It was late. Jade, her magical pet mouse, was asleep in her basket that was hung from the ceiling like a bird's cage. She could hear the mouse's little breaths. Moonlight spilt into Topaz's room through the window, illuminating her room in that eerie way that only moonlight could.
The brunette fairy piled some pillows under her chest and crossed her arms. She looked out her window into the courtyard. She could see the opposite school wing from the gap in the curtains. Melancholy fell upon her as she looked at her unfamiliar surroundings. She knew her way around the school, but it didn't mean it was her home yet.
Across the courtyard on the balcony opposite to hers, Topaz saw someone, a woman, step outside onto the balcony and then hop over the railing to make her way down to the courtyard.
Feeling that she was witnessing something that was completely none of her business, Topaz felt compelled to watch the fairy make her escape. She followed with her eyes the escapee who made her way to the school gate. There, a man met her and both of them made their way into the night.
A date most likely, Topaz thought. The brunette pulled the curtains together and curled under her blanket to sleep away the night. She had other things to worry about, like her workshop in the forest to collect plant samples for Potions class.

Final Fight and Conclusion

Does Sky's father die?! Is this a real on-screen death?! (cough*Nabu*cough)

Looks like Erendor does not die.
Video: Winxlorelai

Debunking Winx Club Rumors

Rumors. The official definition is "a story or statement in general circulation without confirmation or certainty as to facts" (source) and they are quite common to anything that exists - movies, common folks, TV shows, politicians, etc. and Winx Club is not immune to it in any way. Below I listed some relevant rumors and debunked them to the best of my ability. If you object to one of my debunks, leave a comment, but try not to start a fight.

"The Season 5 transformation is '____'"

On the mermaid transformation ("Mermaidix"): The transformation does exist, but only in the Italian book called Sirene, set during Season 3. Scans can be found here. It is not likely that it will be used in the show.

On the fanart pictures by TaTa: See here. They're just fanart. Nothing more, nothing less.

On Gemix: See here.

On every other fan name: Rainbow has yet to confirm anything about Season 5, and that includes the transformation. Don't believe anything until you hear it from Rainbow and/or Nickelodeon.

Tecna's last name is Chandler, etc.

As of Season 4, no character has revealed a last name with the exception of Mike and Vanessa in a book by 4Kids entitled "Secret Powers", where it is revealed to be "Peters". The book is not canon to any dub aside from 4Kids, and even then it may not be valid.

Phoebe's note: I was the one who made up the last name Chandler for a fanfiction I was writing. The surnames Brandt, Sinclair, Valdez, Contee, Chandler, and Kimura are all Phoebe-made. 

Roxy is a Winx and there's proof of it.

I would very much like to see that proof. As far as I have seen, there is none.The "Roxy is a Winx" rumors is nothing more than baseless hope.

Roxy will play a part in the second movie.

It has been confirmed that she isn't even mentioned, let alone seen.

Tecna is the princess of Zenith.

Only in the comics. The comics are not canon to the TV show, unless you want to debate that Stella is from Domino and Bloom earned her Winx in Episode 2.

Musa is the princess of Melody.

Never in the original dub is she called a princess. "Melody" strictly refers to the original dub. In the 4kids dub, she is royalty only by blood. As her royal father left the throne, she is not truly a princess and will never run a realm (unless she marries a prince, of course).

The Season 5 villain will be Devilrus.

See here.

The Winx girls will become pregnant yadda yadda yadda...

Winx Club is aimed at a fairly young audience. It is very unlikely that pregnancy will ever be mentioned.

Tecna will die because Rainbow thinks she isn't popular enough.

Rainbow is not dumb enough to kill off a main character. Now, before someone brings up Nabu, he was never a main character and we cannot truly prove that he is dead (see here). The target audience for the show is meant to identify with the main characters and it is highly unlikely that any of them will ever be killed off.

While not a rumor, I would like to clarify that the winner of the contest has been chosen, but that Phoebe and Kiku would like to finish their collaboration story based on the winner's character before announcing the winner of the contest. As Phoebe has been busy lately, her portion of the story took longer to complete. You can probably expect the announcement soon, by the end of the year at the latest.

True Love

Sky and Bloom do, in the course of the movie, break up because of a deep-seated betrayal between the families.

Approximately after Bloom and Sky break up, Bloom starts to look at new suitors, most likely at the behest of her parents, Oritel and Mariam. Bloom sees many suitors, none of which she likes until one comes along...

So she is capable of loving again? Or is it only to appease her parents? And who is this mysterious suitor?

It is none other than Sky, judging by his clothes. They are wearing similar clothing in the second and third pictures. I guess true love will always triumph.

Nabu is in Magica Avventura

Hello, Nabu!

Since the movie has been released, we can absolutely confirm here at Winx-Fairies that Nabu is "alive," or rather awake, in the movie. The proof is undeniable. How is he is awake we are unable to answer. It is also unknown as to what Nabu's role in the movie will be.

What had originally happened in season four what that Nabu had fallen into a deep slumber, as said by Morgana in the fateful episode twenty-four, Il Giorno Della Giustizia/The Day of Justice. English Wikipedia says that he had died, however watching the episode in both English and Italian, Morgana says he is sleeping. Why the scene had played out like funeral, we at Winx-Fairies have no idea.

As for the movie, since the Trix break the balance magic in the Tree of Life in the favour of dark magic, does Nabu also lose his magic? What kind of magic does he have anyways?

Is Miriam a Fairy?

It has been a while since the revelation of Bloom's birth parents being magical beings from another world. However, one question that has never been asked before (as far as I know) is bothering me: Is Miriam, Bloom's mother, a fairy? Some might think yes, because naturally since Bloom is a fairy, Miriam must also be a fairy. Some might think no, because there is no real evidence to say that she is fairy.

What do you think?

Check the Date!

This is just a little itty-bitty pet peeve of mine: People correcting old news posts. At the time some of the stuff on here was posted, that was all that anyone knew on the topic. Like in the post about Aurora, which was made before she was introduced. Remember, there was a time when everything about season 4 was new! 

Just look at the date before you assume the information is wrong or outdated, please and thank you! :D

Yep, that's all. Thanks for cooperating, guys!!

Bye, Bye Gardenia Park!

My favorite part of the official Winx Club site, Gardenia Park, is going to be removed by the end of October. (WAAH! MY OUTFITS!!) I guess I haven't been able to play it lately, but I'll still miss it. It was so much fun! And I have all the outfits, haha! Even if you spent loads of cash on your clothes though, you're getting a refund, don't worry!

This is the official message on the site:

"Gardenia Park is closing down soon, at the end of October.

We have prepared Winx Adventure, a new online game, which aims to give all of you a much better experience and fun factor. In Winx Adventure you can decorate your personal room, teleport to everywhere on the map, and at the same time, make many friends and chat with them."

Spend all the time you can in it while it's still there!

Official Wallpaper: Tecna & Timmy II

Finally! The last of the Couples of Season 4 wallpaper set! I don't like this one as much as the others in the set, especially not compared to the last Tecna one (it doesn't even look like they're a couple!) but I do love seeing both of them together. They don't even look like the nerdy couple any more! :D

Banjogate: Videos Removed?

We all know BanjoGate, the Winx Club universe's Youtube king. He has over a million hits on his Youtube page from Winx fans all over the world who've watched his season 4 and PopPixie episodes. But Red Fountain Senior tells me that most of his Winx and PopPixie episodes were taken down because of copyright! 

Don't worry, you can still watch his subbed episodes! Either way, we'll miss your dedication, Banjogate.
