This de-motivational poster is dedicated to all of my Butchubbles-shipping friends, fellow artists, fans, and brethren. Ergo, soak in that Butchubbles lovability, sweetness, preciousness, and loveliness. I expressed my most earnest thoughts on Brickercup and Blossoomer. Now, it is time for Butchubbles to take the stand, thus completing my little de-motivational series, as to why I really love all of the color clash couples. With Butchubbles’ case, this couple has positively surprised me in more ways than one considering how effectively their opposite personalities can click. Butch is super strong, fierce, tough, rough around the edges, wild, and animalistic, thus making him the brutish muscle of Team Xtreme, while Bubbles is generous, kind, gentle, appreciative, sweet, and lovable, thus making her Team Xtreme’s pacifist. When these two are together, they would end up appreciating each other for their positive qualities and pleasantly surprise each other. For example, Butch not only likes Bubbles for her generosity, attentiveness, kindness, and lovability but also for the fact that when she goes into her hardcore mode, she can stand on her own two feet as a fierce combatant. Meanwhile, Bubbles would not only love Butch for his strength, toughness, fierceness, and ruggedness but also the many times he would go out of his way to protect Bubbles from all forms of harm using his super strength and peerless combat prowess and how surprisingly loyal, attentive, and supportive he is towards her. Ergo, Butch and Bubbles can always find the best in each other. I will reiterate that Butchubbles is a wonderful example of soulmates finding the best qualities in each other, thus learning about each others’ strengths, weaknesses, and the surprises that come along the way in relationships such as this. Just because Butch would always go out of his way to protect Bubbles from all harm, much like how a lot of good rugged heroes would do when they rescue the girl, does not mean that Bubbles will always find herself as the designated damsel in distress. Bubbles can use her grace, agility, and physical flexibility to take down anyone who dares to defile her. In turn, Butch would not only be impressed with how Bubbles can handle herself but he can see a lot more substance in her because she is not just another cute, pretty, dainty face. She is a rose who can expose her thorns when necessary and that would make Butch root for her even more. Meanwhile, Bubbles can feel more at home with Butch’s brand of loyalty, kindness, and attentiveness considering how much he covers his mushy, gooey side with a hard, impenetrable shell of toughness and ruggedness. When they are together, Butch would definitely feel at peace with Bubbles because he will be intrepid enough to show his sensitive, nurturing side not just in the many times used for protection but also for the intimacy between them. Ergo, no amount of animosity or violence can disrupt this healthy bond. It is not solely their personalities that make them root for each other but also the activities they would end up doing together. Sure, Butch loves weightlifting, boxing, kickboxing, Muay Thai, mixed martial arts, soccer, football, basketball, water polo, and wrestling while Bubbles loves gymnastics, capoeira, interpretive dancing, cheerleading, tai chi, track-and-field, and volleyball but what they have in common is their love for animals, visiting the animal shelters and the zoos, fine art, horror movies, visiting sports events, walks to the park, anime and manga, especially since Butch loves seinen and shonen such as Dragonball Z, Berserk, and YuYu Hakusho while Bubbles is a huge shoujo fan with titles such as Sailor Moon, Cardcaptor Sakura, and Magic Knight Rayearth, and languages especially where their love for Spanish, Japanese, Korean, French, German, and Italian come into play. Everything they do together is done with so much charm and lovability that it does not feel like a job but more like a game, they like to play every time. As combatants, they are an amazing marriage of super strength, animalistic ferocity, graceful agility, and peerless flexibility. Combining Butch’s muscles, strength, and fierceness with Bubbles’ agility, grace, and flexibility put both of them at a great advantage against their foes, thus making them a rather unstoppable force. My feelings for Butchubbles have grown stronger as the years rolled by because of how surprising, different, and fun this couple really is. This also came to effect when I was involved in a couple of art trades with, of course, KatyGorl, where I brought in her Butchubbles children to my Team Xtreme universe and it eventually inspired me to create my four more Butchubbles sons. I was also immersed by other fan artists and friends who ship Butchubbles so much so that I opened my mind and heart to accept this couple as one of my OTPs. Thus, sealing the deal that the color clash RuffPuff couples are the best set of pairings ever. Overall, I am so thankful that Butchubbles managed to find its way into my mind, heart, and soul as one of my most precious OTPs of all time. The dynamics Butch and Bubbles have as a couple is wonderful to witness to the point of understanding how effectively their opposite personalities can mesh with each other. I hope you all enjoyed this and I will see you in the next submission. Take care, everybody.

This edited screenshot de-motivational is dedicated to all of my Blossoomer-shipping friends, fellow artists, fans, and brethren. Ergo, soak in that Blossoomer purity, nobility, loveliness, and beauty. To say that my heart bleeds for Boomer x Blossom or Blossoomer is a mere understatement. My heart swells, pines, thirsts, and worships the ground Boomer x Blossom walks on for just how pure, genuine, well-meaning, and great their relationship is. In fact, Blossoomer is toe-has probably overtaken Brickercup as my most favorite color-clash couple of all time, though both of them teeter on being tied for that coveted title. This comes into play when it comes to how well their personalities and skills mesh with each other. Boomer is lovable, good-humored, enthusiastic, goofy, fun-loving, and loyal, thus making him the lovable dumb muscle who is a perfect combination of a warm character, super strength, and peerless athleticism. Blossom is diplomatic, intelligent, eloquent, savvy, classy, and poised, thus making her the brainy beauty and Team Xtreme’s only sane woman. Put them both together and Boomer would admire Blossom for her diplomacy, courage, compassion, kindness, mercy, intelligence, and encouragement, while Blossom would admire Boomer for his optimism, lovability, generosity, attentiveness, sense of empathy, and good humor. Ergo, they are soulmates on a very deep level. As mentioned before, Blossoomer is a clear-cut example of soulmates on a deep, emotional, and psychological level in terms of the boundless moral support Boomer and Blossom exhibit for each other in thick and thin. Every obstacle both Boomer and Blossom face would be met with a clear mind, loads of focus, resilience, and the ability to look at the bigger picture of the world around them. Therefore, their relationship would reach their full potential, especially when they help each other combat their inner demons. On top of that, Boomer and Blossom would also be a clear example of a couple who will end up growing old together because of the copious amounts of positivity, moral support, and great direction both of them bear and animosity will have no room whatsoever. For instance, if ever Boomer suffers from being bullied or has so many anxieties pulling him down, Blossom would be diplomatic enough to help him back on his two feet. If ever Blossom’s ego gets bloated or if she gets overwhelmed by her duties as a role model, Boomer would go out of his way to remind her that there will always be more important people in her life and that she does not have to feel alone every single time. In fact, they will even tell each other that they do not have to be alone, for they will have each other until the end of time. Aside from their interpersonal traits, their hobbies and their passions would definitely reflect everything Boomer and Blossom represent. Sure, Boomer is into hockey, weightlifting, soccer, swimming, basketball, baseball, track-and-field, karate, wrestling, judo, and Tae Kwon Do while Blossom is into Kung Fu, karate, battoujutsu, swimming, diving, track-and-field, gymnastics, physics, chemistry, biology, and political science but what they have in common is their love for music especially the French chansons, opera, jazz, soul, classical music, and many other art songs from different countries, culture, architecture, fine art, world literature, traveling, and languages especially where French, German, Italian, Spanish, Japanese, Cantonese, and Mandarin are concerned. It is not just solace and passion that they would find in these activities, but also a sense of belonging and finding deeper meaning in everything they do together. They can even be quite formidable as combatants with Boomer’s mega brawn, super speed, unparalleled athleticism, and lightning powers being put to great use alongside Blossom’s tactfulness, lethal accuracy, resilience, and cognizance of her opponents’ strengths and weaknesses. Therefore, Boomer and Blossom are an unstoppable force to be reckoned with and they do look amazing when they show their combat skills. During my time here on DeviantArt, I have been so blessed to have been surrounded by fellow Blossoomer shippers including my most beloved sisters from different mothers xahCHUx, BrickercupMasterX3, KatyGorl, YokoAnimeProductions, Pastel—Star, PowerpuffObsessed, and xmysticaldreamsx. Out of all my most beloved sisters, it is xahCHUx, BrickercupMasterX3, and KatyGorl I have to thank for making me find more reasons to appreciate this couple more often, especially ever since I got myself heavily immersed in that fan-animated music video of “My Immortal” by Evanescence thanks to xahCHUx and a couple of art trades with KatyGorl as well as finding myself participating in the Blossoomer next-gen month last December. This even got to the point where I not only added KatyGorl’s Blossoomer children to my universe but also added my own four Blossoomer sons to the mix. Ergo, I am absolutely grateful to call myself a hardcore Blossoomer shipper. Overall, I am never going to let Blossoomer go even if I were to be hanged upside-down on a tree. This couple is far too precious, far too genuine, and for too amazing to let go because I can see so much good in the cotton-candy couple. As a couple, Blossoomer represents the good and the genuineness that can be emitted from a healthy relationship and it is so unlikely that Boomer and Blossom will ever separate because they are steeped with relationship goals that they would love to keep creating. I hope you all enjoyed this and I will see you all in the next submission. Take care, everybody.

This screenshot de-motivational poster is dedicated to all of my Brickercup-shipping friends, fellow artists, fans, and brethren. Ergo, soak in that Pro-Brickercup awesomeness, epicness, and greatness. I am fully aware that a lot of you who are fans of the Rowdyruff Boys and the Powerpuff Girls know that I love, worship, and grovel at the ground Brick x Buttercup or Brickercup walks on because of how effective this particular couple is when one puts their personalities together. Brick’s brand of being large-and-in-charge, determined, focused, street smart, cool, and confident meshes beautifully with Buttercup’s toughness, independence, outspokenness, endurance, directness, and feistiness. Ergo, these two are a rambunctious pair of fighters who show lots of guts, endurance, and courage. Moreover, these two tough fighters define the old phrase “When the going gets tough, the tough get going” in spades and more. What makes them click so effectively are not just their strong, tough, rough personalities coming together in one hot and spicy harmony and synergy, but they are also a clear-cut example of knowing that being in a relationship does not mean immediate perfection and there will always be bumps and stumbles along the way that might hinder them to reach their full potential together such as Brick’s ego and pride and Buttercup’s recklessness and fiery temper. However, with their resilient attitudes, they can be more than capable of overcoming anything and everything not only bettering themselves as individuals but as a couple. Sure, Brick and Buttercup may have their arguments, but they will easily end up bouncing back in the thick of things so long as they do not end up killing each other. Their relationship comes into play when respect and acknowledgement are present, especially where Brick’s experience as a fighter and Buttercup’s passion for combat are concerned. Brick would always be that life partner who can show Buttercup how to properly, effectively use her attacks and focus her energy on the target every single time, thus shaping her combat prowess to its full potential. In turn, Buttercup would learn to not only respect him as a leader but also admire him for being so street smart, well-rounded, and determined and for being so different from his brothers. Together, Brick and Buttercup are inseparable. This also leads me to state that I can see neither Brick nor Buttercup with anyone else because of how loyal they are to each other and how much their skills as fighters can easily complement each other in ways they cannot imagine. Moreover, as you can tell in my Team Xtreme headcanon, they are the ones who are consistent not only in their relationship but also the number of children that they have. This has also come into effect with the art trades I did with fellow Brickercup shipper Katy-Gorl where I also added her Brickercup children to my Team Xtreme universe as well as being in the process of adding more Brickercup children. Therefore, the number of children Brickercup ended up having is twenty children, since I have yet to create a couple more Brickercup children. The first ten are between the ages of 8 and 7, which are the same ages as the ten Blossoomer and ten Butchubbles children, and the younger ten are between the ages of 6 and 1 the same ages as the ten Blossutch and the ten Boomubbles children. Oh, do not fret, I will have positive de-motivationals dedicated to Blossoomer, Butchubbles, Blossutch, and Boomubbles for their time will come. Overall, if you think I am going to ever give up my love for Brickercup any time soon, you have another thing coming. Brickercup is way too precious to separate in my eyes because of everything they represent as a couple. They show resilience, determination, and courage in the face of adversity all while being physically and mentally strong enough to take any obstacle down with their bare hands. I hope you all enjoyed this and I will see you all in the next submission. Take care, everybody.
