A New Challenger Approaches!

Hello, my name is Sean or, as I have come to be known, Red Fountain Senior.

Let me start off by answering the question in the back of everyone's mind that I am ALWAYS asked about: YES, I am a guy and I like Winx Club. I have enjoyed the series since its “altered,” yet still pretty good, American release on 4Kids TV (which was still the FoxBox at the time).

To give a little bit about myself, I am a freshman in college where I am currently studying mechanical engineering with a focus in physics, which will jumpstart my doctorate program in quantum mechanics. I enjoy video games that include Mario and the Elder Scrolls. In addition, I enjoy designing my own mods to such video games. I’m sure many of you have heard of the game Super Smash Bros. Brawl. I assisted in the creation of the quite famous fan-mod to change Toon Link into the old, famous Nintendo character, Geno.

Now that I’ve nerded you out with my personal background, let’s focus on the Winx. I encountered Winx-Fairies when I was in high school. I was the co-president of the Winx Club fan club (a break off of our anime club). We enjoyed Phoebe’s website and used it as our main source of information due to much Winx-related content still being in Italian. That is how she and I met. I have assisted her behind-the-scenes as an information-gatherer a few times for the website. I also used to be pretty good friends with the person known as BanjoGate, so I was able to get a hold of and post all of the season 4 episodes in the episodes section.

Although I will miss Phoebe, I am still overjoyed that I have the honor to write alongside Emma, Tabby, and the legendary Kikurukina Bal Des’cagel.
