“Vivo per lei da quando sai La prima volta l’ho incontrata Non mi ricordo come, ma Mi entrata dentro e c’è restata Vivo per lei perché mi fa Vibrare forte l’anima Vivo per lei e non è un peso Vivo per lei anch’io lo sai E tu non esserne geloso Lei è di tutti quelli che Hanno un bisogno sempre acceso Come uno stereo in camera Di chi è da solo e adesso sa Che anche per lui, per questo Io vivo per lei È una musa che ci invita A sfiorarla con le dita Attraverso un pianoforte La morte lontana Io vivo per lei Vivo per lei che spesso sa Essere dolce e sensuale A volte picchia in testa, ma È un pugno che non fa mai male Vivo per lei, lo so mi fa Girare di città in città Soffrire un po’, ma almeno io vivo È un dolore quando parte Vivo per lei dentro gli hotels Con piacere estremo cresce Vivo per lei nel vortice Attraverso la mia voce Si espande e amore produce Vivo per lei nient’altro ho E quanti altri incontrerò Che come me hanno scritto in viso Io vivo per lei Io vivo per lei Sopra un palco o contro un muro Vivo per lei al limite Anche in un domani duro Vivo per lei al margine Ogni giorno una conquista La protagonista Sarà sempre lei Vivo per lei perché oramai Io non ho altra via d’uscita Perché la musica, lo sai Davvero non l’ho mai tradita Vivo per lei perché mi dà Pause e note in libertà Ci fosse un’altra vita la vivo La vivo per lei Vivo per lei la musica Io vivo per lei Vivo per lei, è unica Io vivo per lei Io vivo per lei Io vivo per lei Io vivo per lei” – Vivo Per Lei, Sung by Andrea Bocelli and Giorgia Todrani, Written by Gatto Panceri and Valerio Zelli, Released in 1995 English Translation: “I live for her, you know, since the first time I met her. I do not remember how, but she entered within me and stayed there. I live for her because she makes my soul vibrate so strongly. I live for her and it is not a burden. I live for her too, you know, and don’t be jealous: she belongs to all those who have a need that is always switched on like a stereo in the bedroom, to someone who is alone and now knows that she is also for him; for this reason I live for her. She is a muse who invites us to brush her with the fingers. Through a piano death remains far away, I live for her. I live for her who often knows how to be sweet and sensual: sometimes she stuns you but it is a blow that never hurts. I live for her. I know she makes me travel from town to town and suffer a little, but at least I live. It is painful when she leaves. I live in hotels for her. It grows with supreme pleasure. I live for her in the vortex. Through my voice it expands and produces love. I live for her. I know nothing else, and how many others I shall meet who, like me have written on their faces I live for her. I live for her on a dais or against a wall I live for her to the limit. also in a harsh tomorrow. I live for her to the very edge. Every day a conquest; the protagonist will always be her. I live for her because now I have no other way out, because, you know music is something I have truly never betrayed. I live for her because she gives me rests and notes with freedom. If there were another life I’d live it, I’d live it for her. I live for her, music. I live for her. I live for her, she is unique. I live for her. I live for her. I live For her.” This piece of Brickercup, Butchubbles, Blossoomer, Bunnitch, and Robike fan art, which is part of BrickercupMasterX3’s Brickercup Month last December, is dedicated to tultsi93, Ronald Kuang aka SeerLight, PhantomLatte, Puni Puni aka Noire-Ighaan, Seyari Minamoto aka Seyari, gcar1a-unic0rn, Yahga, Kristen aka TromKehra, Abbie Lawson aka xXDittoXx, adRianne aka CulaRi-ann192, William Matthew Karner III aka DarthWill3, Jean aka Mayeru, RandMmanga, L.P. aka fashionbella, and Nicc aka e-hima who celebrated their birthdays a few weeks ago.

I have grown up with the song “Vivo Per Lei” ever since I was a 9-year-old boy, but I watched the Spanish version, which was a part of a music video Andrea Bocelli did with Marta Sánchez as part of his “A Night in Tuscany” performance. Ever since then, this song has become so addicting to listen to….

Townsville High. 18-year-old Brick, 17-year-old Buttercup, 18-year-old Butch, 16-year-old Bubbles, 18-year-old Boomer, and 17-year-old Blossom were in their senior year in High School or to put it more simply in the twelfth grade. This marked Team Xtreme’s final High School Winter Ball before heading off to college in the form of Townsville University in September 2011 and as you can tell the theme for this Winter Ball is The 1970’s. We see Brick and Buttercup in leather vests, long pants, long-sleeved shirts, and boots to show their brand of classiness and toughness as a couple, Butch and Bubbles showing some skin and looking rather sexy as a couple, having a bit of bling on their bracelets, spiked boots for Butch, platform shoes for Bubbles, and, as a lovely bonus the Joy and the Laughter, a diamond-shaped pale sapphire navel ring, and Boomer and Blossom in large T-shirts, golden lockets, headbands, swanky long pants, and suede shoes. Let us also not forget that Boomer and Blossom have the whole Love and Peace philosophy going in their attire, what with Boomer’s endearing, adorable nature making him a fitting candidate for love and Blossom’s brand of diplomacy and savviness making her totally ideal for peace. As one can expect from these lovely couples, their evening before the Christmas break was, in a way, really groovy. I hope you all enjoyed this and may 2019 be an epic year for all of you.

December 18, 2009. The City of Townsville. Townsville High. We have our beloved members of Team Xtreme, who were eleventh graders at the time, in the annual Townsville High Winter Ball, which is held a day before the Christmas break starts. The theme for this particular winter ball is Fairy Tale Prince and Fairy Tale Princess, as our heroes are dressed to the nines in royal garb, especially considering that seventeen-year-olds Brick, Butch, and Boomer are dressed in elegant, princely attire, and their respective dates sixteen-year-olds Buttercup and Blossom and fifteen-year-old Bubbles are in absolutely gorgeous gowns. One can interpret this as a night to remember. Well, I hope you all enjoyed this and may your 2019 be spectacular.

So, I hope you all enjoy and soak in this Brickercup goodness. The Brickercup family has struck again and this time it’s bigger, more exciting, and more fun. We have 26-year-old Brick being the tough, buff, big Kahuna daddy that he is with his darling 25-year-old wife Buttercup being the tough, strong mom. At the front are the 7-year-old eldest sextuplets Brad, Bruce, Bailee, Bea, Brett, and Bridget and 6-year-old second eldest daughter Brina. On the right are 4-year-old Blaze, 3-year-old Brent, and 2-year-old sororal twins Brooke and Brianna. Finally, on the left are 1-year-old twins Bane and Bethany and on Brick’s shoulder is 8-month-old Bona. This is truly quite the clan of rambunctious, rough-and-tumble, determined, fiery, athletic, and tough fighters. We got to know about Blaze, Brent, and Brook, so let us to get to know the other Brickercup kids, shall we? Bradford Tyrone “Brad” Green, Bruce Warren Green, Bailee Christina “BC Jr.” Green, Beatrice Elizabeth “Bea” Green, Brett Rupert Green, and Bridget Melissa Green were born on June 3, 2011. It was said that the sextuplets were loud, wild, and rambunctious when they emerged from their mother’s womb with Bridget being the loudest. Because Brick, Buttercup and the rest of their respective siblings were entering college, Mr. Green, Professor Utonium, Mrs. Bellum-Green, and Mrs. Keane-Utonium were very much in charge of raising their grandchildren with the six superheroes coming to visit every weekend to check up on their progeny. As the sextuplets were in their toddler years, they went out of their ways to have their playtime in the form of sparring matches whether it is against each other or using their favorite stuffed animals as punching bags, thus exhibiting their toughness as fighters. Bradford Tyrone Green, or Brad as he prefers to be called, sees himself as the overall eldest of the sextuplets and the other children of Brick and Buttercup. He takes after his father’s loud, imposing, hot-headed nature that the phrase “the apple does not fall too far from the tree” does not even begin to describe Brad to the point where he is such a daddy’s boy. Even though he always prefers to be called Brad, his parents would always call him by his complete name whenever he is in deep trouble. Being a daddy’s boy, he loves to have sparring matches with Brick every weekend along with his brother/best friend Bruce. Brad always loves to know that he is in charge, though there are times his siblings and cousins can be rather irritated by his overconfidence. Regardless, he means well to all of his siblings and he will always have their backs every single time. Brad’s hobbies include weightlifting, basketball, American football, soccer, judo, mixed martial arts, wrestling, karate, boxing, listening to heavy metal music, reading graphic novels, and Greek history. His special power is the usage of his flame-enhanced laser beams, which can easily obliterate any foe who crosses his path. Just one blast of those flame-enhanced laser beams and that foe is surely a goner. Brad aspires to become a professional mixed martial artist with his entrance music being “Indestructible” sung by Disturbed. Bruce Warren Green is fiercely loyal to his brother Brad to the point where they are best friends forever. As much as Bruce is so close to his father, he absolutely looks up to his mother as his role model. Bruce is just as loud, imposing, and hot-headed as his father and Brad, but he is also a rambunctious and determined soul like his mother. Brad and Bruce have a super strong bond as brothers almost akin to Castor and Pollux, as they are inseparable. He and Brad always love to show that they are in charge and even though this trait can be a nuisance to their siblings and cousins, they mean well. Bruce does compliment Brad in a way that he is slightly softer than his commanding brother. Bruce’s hobbies are kickboxing, wrestling, boxing, mixed martial arts, karate, judo, weightlifting, basketball, American football, soccer, listening to death metal music and rock ‘n roll, reading science fiction novels like the ones by H.G. Wells and Jules Verne, and Greek, Roman, and Egyptian mythology. His special power is his signature Raging Dragon Blast, in which he forms a blazing comet with his hands akin to Goku’s Kamehameha Wave. When Bruce unleashes this, a flaming comet will emerge and will completely incinerate his opponents to smithereens. Bruce aspires to be a professional wrestler/mixed martial artist who is going to win all the tournaments alongside his favorite brother Brad. Bailee Christina “BC Jr.” Green really lives up to her nick-namesake, as she is a marvelous combination of Brick’s hot-headedness, roughness, and pride and Buttercup’s toughness, feistiness, and free-spirited nature. She is close to both her father and her mother, as she equally loves them both. BC Jr. loves physical competition to a fault in everything she does whether they be sports, video games or general butt-kicking. Being the tomboy she is, she always loves to get her hands dirty and enjoys wearing…
This piece of Brickercup vs Boomercup fanart, which is part of my dearest BrickercupMasterX3’s Boomercup month, is dedicated to Tayler D. aka Taydrewa7x who celebrated her birthday three days ago, Lea Moncada aka zeetrip and Kazu aka KazunaPikachu who celebrated their birthdays two days ago, and WILDO aka Webfriends246 who celebrated her birthday yesterday. So, Tayler, Lea, Kazu, Wildo, I hope you lovely ladies had such awesome, wonderful, charming, dazzling, and grand birthday celebrations. I wish you a lot of love, joy, abundance, and happiness in your lives as artists and as people. This is also dedicated to all of the Brickercup and Boomercup shippers out there. So, do enjoy and soak up that Brickercup and Boomercup goodness. What happens when you have a seventeen-year-old basketball star who was dubbed as one of the most popular and well-rounded boys in school and his seventeen-year-old brother who is younger than him by a month, is a soccer star, and was deemed as one of the most lovable and talented boys to grace Townsville High, eyeing for a sixteen-year-old volleyball star who had such a fiery and tough reputation when she was a schoolgirl? Why you would get a sport pun-filled high school love triangle, as Brick, Boomer, and Buttercup were Townsville High’s MVPs of the basketball, soccer, and volleyball teams back in 2009 when they were eleventh graders. Sure, Brick and Boomer are rather possessive of Buttercup, but as you can obviously tell, she is not enjoying this. Sometimes she even wonders why these two gentlemen would ever fall in love with her in the first place and she is no damsel in distress by any stretch of the imagination. Well, I hope you all enjoyed this. If you to ask me which Buttercup-centered pairing I prefer to have as my OTP and which one I prefer to have as my cute, innocent pairing, the answer should be clear as night and day. However, I would love to know from you guys if you prefer Brickercup or Boomercup via comments, as I am sure I will get some pretty interesting answers. So, dear viewers, until the next submission. Brick, Buttercup, and Boomer from The Powerpuff Girls belong to Craig McCracken and Cartoon Network.

As you can tell, she is not only lucky and blessed to have someone as large-and-in-charge and handsomely jacked as Brick in her life, but she also approves. Brick and Buttercup from The Powerpuff Girls belong to Craig McCracken and Cartoon Network.
This piece of RRB/PPG fanart is dedicated to Carrie aka Carriedreamer who celebrated her birthday a week ago and whose fanfic “As Time Goes By” is so worth reading and is freaking awesome, Miss-Beastly and RyanSilberman who celebrated their birthdays yesterday, and alin aka abby-sanban and alexus aka GalaticX-Studios18 who are celebrating their birthdays today. So, Carrie, Miss-Beastly, Ryan, Alin, Alexus, I wish you a lot of love, joy, happiness, beauty, strength, and abundance in your lives as artists and as people. Como se dice en español, os deseo mucho amor, alegría, felicidad, belleza, fuerza y abundancia en vuestras vidas como artistas y personas. I would also love to dedicate this to everyone who loves teaming up the Rowdyruff Boys and the Powerpuff Girls into one awesome superhero team. I hope you all enjoy this. Move over, Justice League. Step aside, Teen Titans. Take a hike, Avengers. Because Townsville’s bravest, finest, and most awesome superheroes are in the house. Ever since they were children they have been bringing security, honor, and strength to not only Townsville, thus becoming one of America’s finest superhero teams of all time akin to the Justice League and the Teen Titans, but also the world. Is there anything else one needs to say about this six-person superhero team? It is rather self-explanatory but let us who they are. From left to right, and from eldest to youngest, we have Brick, Butch, Boomer, Blossom, Buttercup, and Bubbles. 26-year-old Brick “The Bludgeoner” Green is the eldest member of Team Xtreme, as well as the leader, thus functioning as the Team Dad. It also helps that he is the eldest son of Mr. Green and Mrs. Bellum-Green, as he and his brothers were taken to be adopted by them, more specifically Mrs. Bellum-Green, and, therefore, make both HIM and Mojo Jojo lose custody of the Rowdyruff Boys. His combination of strength, street-smarts, and book smarts certainly make him a fearless leader. He is commanding and tough towards his foes and loving, loyal, and willing to sacrifice his life for the sake of his teammates. He can be impulsive whenever things go awry and there are times his confidence can tread towards hubris, but he still means well to them and they, in turn, help him in whatever circumstance he is going through. His special power is pyrokinesis and many of his main attacks are fire-based. His hobbies and interests include martial arts, mechanics, weightlifting, basketball, soccer, physics, wrestling, automobiles, specializing in different forms of cuisine, and history. He is happily married to Buttercup and they have ten children named Bea, Blaze, Brent, Brooke, Brianna, Bane, Bethany, Brina, Bona, and Brett. 26-year-old Butch “The Baron of Berserk” Green is the second eldest member of Team Xtreme and is the muscle of the group. Whenever there is a heavy duty task that needs to be done, he accomplishes it in flying colors. While Brick acts as the main big brother of the group, Butch functions as the second big brother, thus making them close not only as brothers, but also as comrades seeing that they are also two days apart. He is always battle-ready, as he uses a combination of brute strength, pure brawn, and raw animal instinct to help him carry through. His teammates always rely on him and Buttercup to kick criminal butt and protect them from all forms of harm. He is extremely aggressive towards his enemies to the point of overdoing his attacks, mostly to dish out what harm they would cause to his teammates. However, with his teammates he can be surprisingly sympathetic especially to Blossom and Bubbles, fun-loving yet extremely competitive to Buttercup, loyal to Brick, and competitive to Boomer all while maintaining his savage side. Aside from creating forcefields, which have become extremely applicable whenever it comes to protecting his teammates from energy-related attacks, he bears the main element of wind, as his deadly Tornado Punch comes in handy when beating up criminals. Butch’s hobbies and interests include weightlifting, bodybuilding, wrestling, martial arts, American football, basketball, soccer, mechanics, physics, monster trucks, riding his motorcycle, and automobiles in general. He is happily married to Blossom with eight children named Azalea, Brendan, Blake, Bradley, Belle, Brenda, Belinda, and Abigail. He even has three children with Bubbles, his life partner, named Brandon, Brea, and Betty. 26-year-old Boomer “The Fleet Athlete” Green is the optimistic athlete of this superhero group. Being a superbly holy matrimony of brute strength, massive endurance, and lightning speed, he is really reliable not only in battle but in many everyday situations. Personality-wise he is an optimist, the occasional funny man, and he is pretty much the sympathetic dumb muscle of the group. Through moments of joy and sorrow, he is always there to comfort his teammates and give them abundant moral support. He is the type of guy whose heart is always in the right place, thus having he and Bubbles gelling the group in its entirety with flying colors. He has a competitive yet tight relationship with Brick and Butch, as evidenced with all of the wrestling, martial arts, weightlifting, and occasional bodybuilding these three brothers do. A lot of his powers are clearly linked to lightning and raw energy, as his special power is creating objects out of raw energy like a baseball bat, shuriken, and a lasso. Boomer’s hobbies and interests include music, American football, hockey, soccer, filmmaking, anime, video games, martial arts, weightlifting, swimming, languages, sculpting, and theater. He is happily married to Bubbles with eight children named Bailey, Barley, Ben, Brittany, Bonnie, Birdie, Belina, and Bali. Boomer even has five children from his life partner Blossom named Bloom, Brittney, Beau, Becky, and Bella. 25-year-old Blossom “The Commander and the Leader” Utonium-Green is the brains, tactician, and Team Mom of Team Xtreme. What makes Blossom lethal in the battlefield is her accuracy, especially when it comes to acknowledging her opponents strong and weak points. She even uses her smarts when solving various problems, as well as her profession…
This piece of Brickercup fanart, which is part of the amazing Paula’s aka BrickercupMasterX3’s Claim a PPG Pairing Month, is dedicated to Miki Fubiki aka Mikireikai, Stefanie Quah aka li-jean, and Yona aka Yona-Hime who celebrated their birthdays last week.

I am going to sing my OTP’s praises until my dying day and that’s a fact. So, here are Brick and Buttercup being the strong, well-built, tough fighters that they are and you better believe me, when I say that these two are ready to kick some serious butt. I hope you all enjoyed this and I will see you in the next submission. Brick and Buttercup from The Powerpuff Girls belong to Craig McCracken and Cartoon Network.
DALILA Mon coeur s’ouvre à ta voix comme s’ouvrent les fleurs Aux baisers de l’aurore! Mais, ô mon bien-aimé, pour mieux sécher mes pleurs, Que ta voix parle encore! Dis-moi qu’à Dalila tu reviens pour jamais! Redis à ma tendresse Les serments d’autrefois, ces serments que j’aimais! Ah! réponds à ma tendresse, Verse-moi, verse-moi l’ivresse! Réponds à ma tendresse. Ah! verse-moi, verse-moi l’ivresse! SAMSON Dalila! Dalila! je t’aime! DALILA Ainsi qu’on voit des blés les épis onduler Sous la brise légère, Ainsi frémit mon cour, prêt à se consoler, A ta voix qui m’est chère! La flèche est moins rapide à porter le trépas Que ne l’est ton amante à voler dans tes bras! Ah! réponds à ma tendresse! Verse-moi, verse-moi l’ivresse! SAMSON Par mes baisers je veux sécher tes larmes, Et de ton coeur éloigner les alarmes! Dalila! Dalila! je t’aime!” -Mon Coeur S’Ouvre A Ta Voix from Camille Sain Säens’ Samson et Dalila, Libretto by Ferdinand Lemaire, First performance on December 2, 1877 at the Ducal Theater, Weimar, Germany. English Translation: “DELILAH My heart opens to your voice Like the flowers open To the kisses of the dawn! But, oh my beloved, To better dry my tears, Let your voice speak again! Tell me that you are returning To Delilah forever! Repeat to my tenderness The promises of old times, Those promises that I loved! Ah! respond to my tenderness! Fill me with ecstasy! SAMSON Dalila! Dalila! I love you! DELILAH Like one sees the blades Of wheat that wave In the light wind, So trembles my heart, Ready to be consoled, By your voice that is so dear to me! The arrow is less rapid In bringing death, Than your love is By flying into your arms! Ah! respond to my tenderness! Fill me with ecstasy! SAMSON By my kisses, I want to dry your tears And your heart away alarms. Dalila! Dalila! I love you!” This piece of Brickercup fanart is dedicated to my most beloved friend, my soul sister in shipping Brick and Buttercup as a hot, spicy, and sexy couple, and a wonderful DeviantArtist the one and only Miss Paula aka BrickercupMasterX3, who celebrated her birthday yesterday. So, Paula, I wish you a most pleasant, wonderful, exceptional, elegant, and magnificent birthday and I also wish you prosperity, love, and joy in everything you do as an artist and as a person. Comme on dit en francais, je te souhaite une anniversaire plaisante, merveilleuse, exceptionelle, elegante et magnifique et je te souhaite aussi prosperité, amour et joie dans tous tu fais comme une artiste et une personne. Moreover, I would also love to dedicate this to all of the magnificent Brickercup shippers. Prenez plaisir mes amis. Here we have 26-year-old Brick and his 25-year-old wife Buttercup as the legendary biblical couple Samson and Delilah. I personally think they fit their roles really well, as Samson was the leader of the Nazarites famous for his prodigious strength and Delilah was a Philistine woman known for her beauty, cunning, and seductiveness. Brick indubitably is a nice fit for Samson, what with his long hair and superhuman strength, and Buttercup dons Delilah’s attitude rather well with her overall beauty though in real life she is far from being über feminine. Still, these two look exceptionally gorgeous together and I was totally and utterly inspired by the Metropolitan Opera House’s promo picture of Elina Garanca as Dalila and Roberto Alagna as Samson, as Saint Säens’ “Samson et Dalila” will be part of the Met Live in HD’s broadcast lineup this coming October 20 and I am very excited to watch it. So, here’s the picture of my inspiration to try to get this down to a T. Dalila’s signature aria “Mon Coeur S’Ouvre a ta Voix” always had a special place in my heart, as my first exposure to this was listening to Christa Ludwig’s and James King’s voices as Dalila and Samson and I immediately fell in love with this aria. The sinuous melody along with any skilled mezzo and tenor who can pull this off certainly makes any listening experience exciting. Moreover, I watched a taped performance live from the San Francisco Opera House with my late maternal grandmother starring Placido Domingo and Shirley Verrett as Samson and Delilah. So, Paula and to all of my dear viewers, I present to you five renditions of this aria from five of my favorite Delilahs Rise Stevens, Christa Ludwig, Shirley Verrett, Olga Borodina, and Elina Garanca and five of my favorite Samsons Mario del Monaco, James King, Placido Domingo, José Cura, and Roberto Alagna. So, I hope you enjoy listening to these five selections as much as you enjoy soaking up that Brickercup goodness. I also kind of imagine Buttercup’s singing voice being that of a mezzo-soprano to Brick’s dramatic tenor so I am pretty sure you can imagine these two singing this aria. Rise Stevens and Mario del Monaco Christa Ludwig and James King Shirley Verrett and Placido Domingo Olga Borodina and José Cura Elina Garanca and Roberto Alagna So, Paula and my dearest friends, I hope you all enjoyed this piece of Brickercup fanart as well as the five renditions of “Mon Coeur S’Ouvre a ta Voix” from Saint Säens’ Samson et Dalila. A tout a l’heure mes amis. Buttercup and Brick from The Powerpuff Girls belong to Craig McCracken and Cartoon Network.
This piece of Brickercup and Blossutch fanart, which in turn is a part of BrickercupMasterX3’s Blossutch Month, is dedicated to Yoko Anime aka YokoAnimeProductions who celebrated her birthday two days ago. So, Yoko, I hope you had an amazing, lovely, awesome, and grand birthday. I wish you well in everything you are accomplishing as an artist and as a person. Lots of love and joy to you. Moreover, I would love to dedicate to all of the wonderful Brickercup and Blossutch shippers out there. Sit back, relax, enjoy and soak in that Brickercup and Blossutch sexiness and goodness. Here we have Team Xtreme’s red-clad Commanders and Leaders being the protective spouses that they are to the green-clad Toughest Fighters, who are acting like such sweet cinnamon rolls to them, what with Buttercup being subtle with her admiration for Brick and with Butch being not so subtle and acting like the lovable, fluffy pitbull that he is thanking the gods of love to have someone like Blossom in his life. One false move directed to Buttercup, Butch or both toughies and Brick, Blossom or both leaders would give the perpetrator a massive whooping. Brick the Bludgeoner cannot bear it when any pervert, psycho, mugger, murderer or sleazeball gets his grubby hands on his darling Buttercup. Anyone who dares touch her will automatically face the wrath of Brick through his masterful usage of pyrokinesis, thus giving the perpetrator a one-way ticket to the hospital or even worse…to Hell. Blossom the Commander and the Leader just cannot stand it when any hussy or douchebag get her or his way with her most beloved Butch the Baron of Berserk. Anyone who wants to have her or his way with him will have to come face to face with Blossom and her mad ice powers. Ergo, touch her husband and she will give you an attack in the form of a blizzard that one can never escape from. Where my headcanon is concerned for the Greens Butch and Buttercup, I decided to have a little fun with this. There is no doubt that Butch and Buttercup are Team Xtreme’s muscles and toughest fighters, thus constantly exposing their rough sides to any foe. However, when they are respectively in the company of Blossom and Brick, they act like the most obedient of dogs and sweetest of cinnamon rolls, thus showing their unconditional love, tenderness, and respect to them. Let’s also not forget that they very much outgrew their stubborn attitudes, but they are still rambunctious in their own ways, which in turn is passed down to their children. Brick and Blossom, being the Reds, wear the pants in their respective relationships, thus exuding dominance to their green-clad spouses and tenderness where they need it the most. Brick would always be the one to go out of his way to be the elegant, roguish charmer that he is to soothe Buttercup from her moodiness and temper tantrums. On the flipside, Blossom uses her smarts and unparalleled feminity to give Butch the taming, loving, and admiration he needs, thus making him very grateful to have a goddess of a wife like her in his crazy life. So, there you have it. When you have these red-clad, protective, and kind of possessive commanders and leaders being the dominant life partners to the green-clad, rough and hard on the outside sweet and fluffy on the inside, toughest fighters, you get relationships like Brickercup and Blossutch which are really fun, flexible, and interesting. Buttercup, Brick, Blossom, and Butch from The Powerpuff Girls belong to Craig McCracken and Cartoon Network.
