Two Hispanic operatic aces of the twenty-first century, one who is a young lyric coloratura soprano from Madrid, Spain and is on the cusp of international acclaim and the other who is a light lyric tenor from Hermosillo, Mexico and has been a well-established Bel Canto star for decades, tackle the iconic Scottish star-crossed lovers.

(It is dawn, as the sun rises.) Narrator: The City of Townsville, February 6, 2019. Team Xtreme Headquarters. It looks it’s a very special day for our favorite Dumb Muscle, Brainy Beauty couple, 26 going on 27-year-old Boomer Green and his beloved wife, 25 going on 26-year-old Blossom Utonium-Green. Looks like hubby is also up early in the morning. (Boomer is in a cobalt blue tank top and blue swimming shorts preparing breakfast consisting of fried eggs, two slices of pumpernickel bread, salmon fillet, and tall glass of grapefruit juice. He puts the food on the tray along with a letter and he carries it to their bedroom, where Blossom is still sleeping. Boomer gives her a kiss on her forehead and heads to the heated swimming pool taking off his tank top and does some laps in the pool.) (A few minutes later, Blossom wakes up from her slumber.) Blossom (yawning): Oh my, breakfast in bed for me. (Blossom gradually eats up her fried eggs, salmon fillet, and two slices pumpernickel bread. After that, she takes a sip of her glass of grapefruit juice when she notices the letter. She picks it up, as she reads it.) Blossom: To my beloved wife, Blossom. (Blossom turns the letter over from its backside and reads the contents.) Boomer (voiceover): Happy Anniversary, Bloss. It’s hard to believe it has been eight years since we were married and had Bloom, BJ, Beau, Brian, Becky, Belladonna, and, eventually, Basil and Bramley as our children. I just want to thank you so much for being in my life not only as my Team Xtreme teammate but also as my wife. You are the most wonderful woman in the whole world. Here’s to eight more excellent years. With much love, your darling husband, Boomer. (As Blossom reads the letter, tears of joy flow down from her eyes. She finishes her grapefruit juice, as she proceeds to look for Boomer.) (Blossom, still holding the letter, spots Boomer in the heated swimming pool. Boomer then gets out of the pool to dry himself.) Boomer: Good morning, my beloved, darling wife. (Blossom rushes to him and gives him a long hug.) Blossom: Oh, dearest Boomer. Thank you so much for the pleasant wedding anniversary gift. I cannot begin to tell you how blessed I am to have you in my life as my husband. Boomer: The feeling is mutual Blossom. I have always loved everything about you. And I’m not lying when I say that you are the most wonderful woman in the whole world. Blossom: I know that, Boomer. (Boomer and Blossom kiss passionately. Little do they know, Brick and Buttercup, Butch and Bubbles, Mitch and Bunny, and Mike and Robin enter the heated swimming pool area. While they kiss, Brick, Buttercup, Butch, Bubbles, Mitch, Bunny, Mike, and Robin proceed to cheer for them.) Brick, Buttercup, Butch, Bubbles, Mitch, Bunny, Mike, and Robin: HAPPY EIGHTH ANNIVERSARY, BOOMER AND BLOSSOM! WOOHOO!!! (They applaud, as Boomer and Blossom are taken aback with surprise.) Boomer and Blossom: Wow. You guys. Brick: Boom, bro, we have all gathered here today to tell you how proud we are of you to be Bloss’s lawfully-wedded hubby. Butch: You and Blossom are an excellent item and that’s coming from the heart. Mitch: We hope you two continue to rock in everything you do. Mike: We also hope that you two are full of abundant blessings. Buttercup: And Bloss, Leader Girl, we may have had our issues in the past, but I am always gonna support you and Boom Boom as a couple. Bubbles: Yeah, I even plan to throw you guys an afternoon party with all of our kids. Bunny: You know what, Blossom? You and Boomer really are meant to be together and I am proud to call myself little sister-in-law to Boom. Robin: Today is your day. What do you wanna do before noontime? (Boomer and Blossom look at each other.) Boomer: Well, honey, it’s your call. Blossom: I say we take a nice morning dip in the pool. Brick, Buttercup, Butch, Bubbles, Mitch, Bunny, Mike, and Robin: AWESOME! (Brick, Butch, Mitch, Mike, Buttercup, Bubbles, Bunny, and Robin remove their shirts and are in their swimsuits. Blossom follows suit.) (Brick and Buttercup, Butch and Bubbles, Boomer and Blossom, Mitch and Bunny, and Mike and Robin jump in the pool together as couples, as their morning is filled to the brim with laughter and joy.) Narrator: What a great day to start off the festivities of Boomer’s and Blossom’s eighth wedding anniversary. So, once again, the day is saved and the celebration is going to begin. Thanks to Team Xtreme and the Phenomenal Four. This piece of Blossoomer fan art, which is part of BrickercupMasterX3’s annual Blossoomer month, is dedicated QWERTYman1965 who is celebrating his birthday today. So, I wish you a most pleasant, wonderful, and grand birthday and so much prosperity, beauty, strength, and abundance in your life as an artist and as a person. This is also dedicated to all of the wonderful Blossoomer shippers out there. So, sit back, relax, and soak in that Blossoomer goodness. I know some of you are going to be sick and tired of me saying this, but I will say it anyway. If I did not have Blossutch as my endgame OTP ship for Blossom and Boomubbles as my endgame OTP ship for Boomer, Blossoomer would have taken that title of ultimate endgame OTP for both Boomer and Blossom. No hesitation. No holding back. No second thoughts. Those sentiments also apply to Butch and Bubbles as a couple, as Butchubbles would have also ended up as my ultimate endgame OTP for the both of them. Moreover, as you can tell, this is an alternate universe or AU retelling of my Team Xtreme headcanon, where Blossom is happily married to Boomer and Bubbles is happily married to Butch. Don’t worry Butchubbles shippers, their time will come when their AU scenario will be out in the limelight. Obviously,…
One of Australia’s most angelic coloratura sopranos, one of the United States of America’s most noble lyric baritones, one of Germany’s finest authoresses, and one of England’s skilled pianists band together to perform one exquisite Liederabend.

This piece of Blossoomer and Blossoomer fan children fan art, which is part of BrickercupMasterX3’s annual Blossoomer month, is dedicated to Zuzanna aka niziolek and Alex aka SportyArtist who are celebrating their birthdays today. So, I wish you a lot of love, joy, happiness, fortune, beauty, strength, abundance, and prosperity on your very special day as well as in your lives as artists and as people. This is also dedicated to all of the Blossoomer shippers and, as you can tell, this is in honor of the Chinese New Year, more specifically with 2019 being the Year of the Pig. So, Happy Chinese New Year or Kung Hei Fat Choi to you all, sit back, relax, and soak in that Blossoomer goodness. Here we have 26 going on 27-year-old Boomer, his 25 going on 26-year-old life partner Blossom, and their beloved 7 going on 8-year-old sextuplets Bloom, Brittney Jane aka BJ, Beau, Brian, Becky, and Bella Donna aka Belladonna celebrating their Chinese New Year in style. Boomer is dressed as a traditional Chinese martial artist, as he gets to expose his glorious upper body for his beloved Blossom and his children to see. Blossom is dressed as a beautiful Chinese noblewoman and, therefore, looks as elegant as ever. Bloom and BJ are also dressed as Chinese noblewomen. Beau and Brian are dressed akin to Chinese noblemen of the court. Finally, Becky and Belladonna are dressed as Shaolin Kung Fu fighter girls. This should come off as no surprise that Blossom’s affiliation with the Chinese language, more specifically Cantonese, has been ingrained with her since childhood and, therefore, loves exploring Eastern culture and tradition. Hence, every Chinese New Year, she and Boomer would be dressed to the nines in their attires with their children following suit. It also helps that Bloom, BJ, Beau, Brian, Becky, and Belladonna are very diligent when it comes to studying both Cantonese and Mandarin as well as Chinese culture, history, lifestyle, and tradition in general. I hope you all enjoyed this piece of Blossoomer fan art and from me, my family, and my friends to yours, have a most prosperous, awesome, and blessed Chinese New Year. Take care, everybody.

‘Tis a classic tale of a gentleman in cobalt blue and a lady in hot pink Boomer is dashing, strong, loyal, noble, and kind Blossom is articulate, intelligent, and would rather swim than sink He has lightning powers which can leave mortal eyes blind She has glacial powers which can guarantee a great chill He is the most innocent of his brotherly bond of three She is the leader of her trio of sisters Together he and she bear no ill Their hearts are joyful, blissful, and free And their love is like a glorious array of fragrant, rose-scented twisters. The love and beauty between Boomer and Blossom is pervasive and true Neither tempests nor violators nor fate herself can destroy their bond They are there for each other in times of joy so bright and sadness so blue Their faith can go from the deepest ocean to the shallowest pond Lightning and ice dance in this entrancing waltz Cobalt blue and hot pink envelop each other in such endless ecstasy Strength, sympathy, diplomacy, and beauty are entwined as one chain ‘Tis a lovely relationship without any faults They can cherish each other beyond one’s fantasy At the end of the day, only sincerity and kindness shall, in their purest hearts, remain. Boomer can protect Blossom from too much strife Blossom can aid Boomer with his self-esteem Through rain and sun, snow and spring, they give each other life For together they will always be a most fabulous team Should Blossom’s ego consume her, thus, Boomer will bring her down to earth Should Boomer feel alone and toil even with his prodigious strength, Blossom will comfort him In this mortal world and the next, their synergy will prevail Because this fleet athlete and this commander and leader can see each others’ worth Truly appreciating each other from head to heart to limb And neither one of them will fail. For it is what we, the fine shippers, call this gorgeous pair Blossoomer We award this couple with art, stories, and creative dedication Some might say Boomer and Blossom as a couple could cure one from any tumor And one might proclaim this with such exaltation We give thanks to Blossoomer for showing us all That true love is there between a simple, strong cavalier and a savvy, smart maiden This couple is purity, love, grace, empathy, and compassion in the flesh Our hearts, minds, souls, and beings enthrall At the sincerity of this couple whose hearts are with grace and beauty thoroughly laden And, for that, they will stay strong and fight for each other with positivity that is ever fresh. – An Ode to Blossoomer, a lyric poem written by me (Antoni Matteo Garcia), February 5, 2019 That, my dear friends, was my attempt at making a well-structured ode to one of my most favorite RRB/PPG pairings of all time, Boomer x Blossom or Blossoomer, which this piece of work along with the Blossoomer fan art accompanying this text is part of BrickercupMasterX3’s Blossoomer month. I would also love to dedicate this to Josh Strider aka Phantomstrider who celebrated his birthday two days ago and Miss Lazy aka Aria-Pari who celebrated her birthday yesterday. So, I hope you guys had awesome birthdays, I wish you so much love and joy in your lives as artists and people, and I also hope you enjoyed my piece of pro-Boomer x Blossom poetry as well as the fan art accompanying it. This also goes for the other Blossoomer shippers. I hope you guys also enjoyed this in its entirety and I hope this managed to make you feel inspired as I was to produce something like this. All of my observation of rhyming, rhythm, and the technical poetry facets aside, I can never get enough of Blossoomer whatsoever. The love, passion, and dedication I have to this particular color-clash RuffPuff couple is not only strong but also something that makes me even more driven to support this pairing as my OTP alongside the other RuffPuff OTPs I have namely Brickercup, Blossutch, Butchubbles, and Boomubbles. More importantly, I could not have done this particular ode if it were not for you, dear Blossoomer shippers and fans. You all know who you are and I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for giving me so much inspiration, courage, and passion to produce not only this piece of fan art but also this particular ode. I may not be an expert poet, but at least the thought of showing my utmost appreciation for Blossoomer counts so much. I hope you all enjoyed this piece of work and see you all in the next submission. Take care. Boomer and Blossom from The Powerpuff Girls belong to Craig McCracken and Cartoon Network.
