Brickercup

Townsville’s Finest Power Couples drawn by me

This RRB/PPG fan art is dedicated to a fellow DeviantArtist, JeanneWu, who celebrated her birthday three days ago. So, Jeanne, I hope you enjoy this piece of work I did and I hope you had a lot of fun on your special day. I wish you a lot of love, joy, prosperity, and peace on not only what was your birthday two days ago but also your endeavors as an artist and as a person. I also dedicate this to all of my fellow Brickercup, Blossutch, and Boomubbles shippers. With that said, sit back, relax, and enjoy. Here we have Townsville’s finest superhero troupe Team Xtreme having a lovely and cute moment after intense combat training and an equally intense workout, what with the gentlemen Brick, Butch, and Boomer being so romantic to their wives Buttercup, Blossom, and Bubbles. Basically, Townsville has an awesome set of OTPs in Team Xtreme in the forms of Brickercup (Brick x Buttercup), Blossutch (Butch x Blossom), and Boomubbles (Boomer x Boomubbles). Seriously, I totally dig these couples and for that, here are their stories on how they came to be. Brickercup (Brick x Buttercup) Brick, Butch, and Boomer may have been adopted by Miss Bellum and accepted her as their mother, but even then the Rowdyruff leader was as mouthy as ever. As kindergarteners, Brick and Buttercup used to get on each others’ nerves with their attitudes, what with him and his massive ego and her and her defiance and temper tantrums. These two were nothing compared to the angry shouting matches and beatdowns she and Butch would have and the constant ego-rubbing he and Blossom would usually engage in. Ergo, Brick was essentially Buttercup’s greatest frenemy totally on par with Butch. One moment they would be playing games like dodgeball and catch and the next moment it’s open house to see who can shout the loudest. This left poor Mrs. Keane-Utonium, who ended up being Blossom’s, Buttercup’s, Bubbles’, and Bunny’s mother, to drag Brick, Butch, and Buttercup to time out on a constant basis. Moreover, Brick and Butch had a terrible reputation for being the tyrants of the playground putting even Mitch Mitchelson to shame. Through their timeouts, Brick, Butch, and Buttercup used these opportunities to get to know each other more. Brick and Butch found it fascinating that Buttercup is just as great as spitter as Boomer is and it was actually she that taught Bubbles how to spit and Buttercup found it cool that she was able to have great sparring partners like Brick and Butch to hang out with even though they do annoy her, especially Butch. Sure, their respective parents scolded them for their not so civil behavior with each other, but the moments they had together were in a word priceless, as their bond grew tighter. From grade school to middle school, the very years when Team Xtreme came to fruition, Buttercup found herself much closer to Butch and Brick found himself much closer to Blossom, as the relationship between her and Brick was still on a platonic level. She and Brick enjoyed their sparring sessions with each other and they enjoyed working together as one team but somehow there was something in them that made them initially think that they were not meant to be together and just be comrades. Moreover, in terms of their powers, Brick’s pyrokinesis, fire breath, and other fire powers were put to great use thanks to having a father in the form of Mr. Green who monitored how his three sons were using their powers and made sure they were using them wisely and Buttercup discovered that she can control the earth that she stands in but she can also make plants grow at an accelerating rate, thus using plants as her weapon. There were still the obligatory shouting matches between Buttercup and Butch and the competitiveness that Brick and Blossom had, but Buttercup’s respect and admiration for Brick as the “team dad” grew and grew. The first two years of high school were the years where Team Xtreme’s powers matured both individually and as a group and they also had to continuously juggle with school, friends, and their jobs as superheroes. Through all four years of High School, Brick became one of the most popular, handsome, and well-rounded guys in school akin to a Renaissance man who was heavily involved in sports, the arts, the sciences, mathematics, political science, and debates, basically, the guy girls want to date and boys envy so much, and Buttercup became really well-loved in every activity involving sports. Moreover, the tenth grade was the year when Brick decided to date Blossom and Buttercup decided to date Butch. While Brick’s and Blossom’s relationship was relatively stable with the occasional arguments, Butch’s and Buttercup’s was volatile on an on-and-off basis, in spite of enjoying similar activities and having moments where they kissed and made up. On Brick’s and Blossom’s side, they were constantly competing for their spots on the honor roll, thus being the best students in the class, while Butch and Buttercup despite performing well in terms of academics found themselves in trouble due to their aggressive attitudes and constantly blaming each other for stupid and petty things. This came to a head one summer when Butch and Buttercup broke up while they were on a boating trip. They decided then and there that they would stay as friends and allies due to all the hostility they had towards each other and they knew that they could not last in a serious relationship with each other, which was a surprisingly reflective move from the Greens. On the Reds’ side, Brick grew rather tired of Blossom’s sleeplessness, obsession for perfection, and distance from him and Blossom grew fed up with Brick’s over-competitiveness, bloated ego, and tendency to be overprotective, the latter trait which was the problem they shared. Being the team “dad and mom” that they are, they decided to end their relationship on good terms and keep…

Four Blissful Powerpuffs and their Dear Husbands drawn by me

This Powerpuff Girls OTPs fan art is dedicated to a fellow DeviantArtist, WildGirl91 who celebrated her birthday yesterday. So, Silvia, I hope you had a most pleasant birthday and as you say in Italian, tanti auguri a te e tutto la mia felicitá e gioia per te. Spero ti piaccia il mio regalo. I also wanna dedicate this to all of the Brickercup, Blossutch, Bunnitch, and Boomubbles shippers out there, as I put in a lot of effort and time to not only make this birthday gift for one of my fellow DeviantArtists but also for you wonderful people. You all know who you are and I hope you enjoy this too.   My dear viewers, if you did not already get the hint, I am a major shipper and fan of Brickercup (Brick x Buttercup), Blossutch (Butch x Blossom), Bunnitch (Mitch x Bunny), and Boomubbles (Boomer x Bubbles). These four are my most beloved OTPs of all time and I am here to show my undying passion for these four lovely couples. By the way, the ages for these couples are as follows.   Brickercup (Brick x Buttercup) Brick Green, aged 26 Buttercup Utonium-Green, aged 25   Blossutch (Butch x Blossom) Butch Green, aged 26 Blossom Utonium-Green, aged 25   Bunnitch (Mitch x Bunny) Mitch Mitchelson, aged 26 Bunny Utonium-Mitchelson, aged 24   Boomubbles (Boomer x Bubbles) Boomer Green, aged 26 Bubbles Utonium-Green, aged 24   With that said, let’s proceed.   Brickercup (Brick x Buttercup) There is always something amazingly plausible and cool about this particular mixed-colored pairing. One is the fact that Brick’s large-and-in-charge personality can mesh really well with Buttercup’s feisty, mischievous, and snarky attitude, which is something I find really endearing about Brickercup. The other is how someone like Brick can be able to be the roguish charmer that he is and soothe Buttercup’s temper tantrums in his own way by being cool and not giving himself into shouting matches, even though they can occur between these two though it’s just their form of tough love.   As fighters, they would definitely complement each other. Brick can teach Buttercup new, intense, and interesting moves while Buttercup would be easily fascinated by Brick’s combat prowess, strength, and the command he has over his movements, thus making him a most admirable fighter in her eyes. Therefore, she would learn a lot from him.   Let’s also not forget that when Brick’s ego gets the best of him, Buttercup would always be the one to shrink it down to size by being the direct person that she is and calling him out on his crap.   Through everything they do as a couple, there will never, ever be a dull moment, as everything they do will be filled to the brim with excitement, figurative fireworks, and oodles of passion that these two have not only for combat but for looking out for each other with all of their beings. Speaking of combat, they would definitely form the tightest duo especially when it comes to fighting off criminals, thus making them such a great asset.   Outside of crime-fighting, they would be doing such fun activities like Dance Dance Revolution, doing sports, and many other physical activities, thus getting a kick out of each other with this electrifying synergy.   When it comes to having a family, Brick would be the strong, cool dad and Buttercup would be the tough mom who ensures that her kids are safe and well-disciplined.   Blossutch (Butch x Blossom) I cannot begin to describe how utterly fascinating this color crack pairing really is. On the surface, it’s the classic case of the strong bad boy pairing up with the smart bookworm of a good girl. Real life implications may show the consequences of such a relationship like this, but I can defend this pairing on what I find so plausible about it.   Butch is essentially this person with insurmountable strength, abundant fighting spirit, lots of determination, but also has the tendency to be easily ticked when one pushes his buttons and does not always have self-control where it is needed. On the other hand, Blossom is an articulate, intelligent, clever, diplomatic, and gorgeous seraph of a young woman who has enough patience and savviness to deal with someone as unpredictable and wild as Butch. What makes them complement each other is that Butch is strength and raw power incarnate while Blossom has strength, tact, and structure wrapped up in one gorgeous package.   Once they face each other, they would automatically acknowledge each others’ strengths and weaknesses and they would help each other become not only better fighters but also better overall people. Butch would indubitably fancy the pants off of Blossom’s combat prowess, strength, and impeccable reflexes but he would also call her out on using her head way too much when fighting is about instinct and having this primal urge to spot an opponent’s weakness. Blossom would absolutely acknowledge Butch’s raw animalistic instincts and brute strength thanks to being the muscle in this relationship, which would come in handy whenever she gets injured or ambushed, but she would also call him out on his lack of self-control.   This is where meditation is put to great use for both Butch and Blossom, as they would do this and yoga on a ritualistic basis, thus ensuring a healthy synergy and balance to occur in the body, in the mind, and in the soul. Through activities like meditation and yoga, Butch and Blossom would be able to not only gain a further awareness of their surroundings both external and internal, but they would also see another side to each other. Butch would be able to see a Blossom who is warm, sympathetic, nurturing, and kind and not just this uptight, highly-strung person. In turn, Blossom would see a Butch who is sympathetic, kind, protective, loyal, and strong in mind, body, and spirit and not just this bloodhound who is constantly itching for…

A Letter and a Photo from a New Friend drawn by me

This is my second Brickubbles month submission as spearheaded by my dear friend, BrickercupMasterX3. I know I was supposed to submit this on Friday, but I had other things to accomplish like be present in a film shoot, watch Gounod’s Faust at the Deutsche Oper Berlin starring Valentin Dytiuk as Faust, Nicole Car as Marguerite, and Almas Svilpa as Mephistopheles, and make a vlog-style review of that opera the following day thus releasing it onto YouTube. So, to Paula, I am really, really sorry for the delay, but life happens and priorities have to be taken into consideration. I hope you can forgive me for the super, super long delay. I can assure you that I was working and planning really hard on this piece of work. Don’t worry though I will definitely submit the next piece of Brickubbles fanart later today before I make my review of Ponchielli’s La Gioconda at the Deutsche Oper Berlin starring Daniela Barcellona as Laura Adorno and George Gagnidze as Barnaba. As my peace offering, I give you my YouTube channel, where you can find my vlog-style reviews of operas, concerts, albums, musicals, ballet, cartoons, anime, and movies. You can watch all the videos you want if you really like and enjoy them. You will not be disappointed. I have also put in a lot of effort on my reviews, so do enjoy. https://www.youtube.com/user/operaanimelover369 This piece of Brickubbles fanart takes place after the first submission. And lo and behold, we also have Brickercup present here, oh, pure, boundless joy. So, we have a triple whammy here, a lovely, sweet BroTP in the form of the awesomely macho big brother-in-law Brick and inwardly hardcore little sister-in-law Bubbles, a fine BroTP or in this case SisTP in the form of the toughest fighter of an older sister Buttercup and the joy and the laughter of the youngest sister Bubbles, and the most awesome and my most personal favorite mixed-colored pairing OTP for life in the form of the large-and-in-charge, strong, handsome Brick and his sassy, feisty, tough wife Buttercup. Let’s get on with the show. Narrator: The City of Townsville! Team Xtreme Headquarters! And after last night’s shocking moment, it’s high time for the awesome men and women of Team Xtreme to start this shiny, new day. (Boomer’s and Bubbles’ room. Bubbles is the first to wake up, as Boomer is still sleeping. She passes by the training room where Butch is bench pressing and Blossom is doing push-ups, their usual morning routine. After that, she passes by Brick who is wearing an apron with the inscription “Chef in da House” all in capital letters and who is also cooking breakfast for his teammates consisting of eggs, whole wheat toast, avocado slices, Canadian bacon, and roasted bell peppers and Buttercup who is setting the table while in her training outfit, as she used the training room before Butch and Blossom.) Brick: Good morning, darling kid sister-in-law. Did you sleep well? Bubbles: Uh-huh. Brick: Well, breakfast will be ready in about 15 minutes. So, do me a solid and call Butch, Blossom, and Boomer to the dining hall. Buttercup: By the way, Bubs. You got a letter from that girl you saved last night. Bubbles: Oh, you mean Jessica? Buttercup: Yeah, it’s on the counter. I placed it there for you before you woke up. (Bubbles goes to the counter and sees a fuschia envelope in which the back side says “To Bubbles Utonium-Green” and the front side says “From Jessica King”. She then opens the letter and reads it.) Jessica (voiceover): Dear Bubbles. Thanks for saving me from those bad guys. You are my hero and I wanna be like you when I grow up. Love, Jessica. (After reading the letter, Bubbles then sees a picture of Jessica, Mr. King, and Mrs. Smiling radiantly. Tears of joy are almost about to flow from Bubbles’ eyes. Brick and Buttercup approach her and comfort her.) Brick: Like I said, Bubs, I am really proud of you. You not only saved someone as nice and kind as Jessica from being attacked by those bastards but you also made a really great friend through her. Buttercup: As your sister, I always believed in you, Bubs. You really outdid yourself last night and I couldn’t be any happier for you. You risked your life to save another. And now that you made a great, new friend like Jess, I can’t wait to also meet her. She seems like a great kid. Bubbles: Yeah, she truly is. (Brick, Buttercup, and Bubbles group hug.) This was definitely in the making, as I wanted a bit of closure from the whole Jessica King case, and I was rather satisfied with the results. Like I said, it took time, heart, lots of thinking, effort, plausibility, and lots of love to continue this little story from where the first submission left off and I’m sure this will touch many hearts if it manages to do so. If it does, great and even if it does not, I’m sure it will get a reacting from someone. Well, Paula, you enjoyed this belated submission. I apologize from the bottom of my heart for the delay, but you know life happens and I hope you can forgive. I’m sure this submission and my YouTube channel will definitely suffice as my peace offering and take care and lots of love. By the way, the surname Green is meant for the Rowdyruff Boys as their permanent surname instead of Jojo, as Mr. Green and Mrs. Sara Bellum-Green are their adoptive parents after the whole Him and Mojo Jojo debacle in Custody Battle, at least where my headcanon is concerned. Long story short, the Rowdyruffs were officially adopted by Miss Bellum while they were still six years old, thus making the Powerpuffs specifically Blossom and Buttercup five years old and Bubbles four years old back then, after she found them in the streets. The surname Green came along when Mr. Green of…

Have a Flex-tacular Fourth of July drawn by me

The first panel on the upper left side (Brick x Buttercup or Brickercup) Brick: Yo! The name’s Brick. (He flexes his left bicep.) And I’m the muscle wall you can never bludgeon. The raven-haired cutie here is my queen, Buttercup, or as I would love to call her, BC or Butterbabe. Buttercup: Yup, that’s my Brickster. The most awesome and coolest hubby I have!   The second panel on the upper right side (Butch x Blossom or Blossutch) Butch: ‘Sup, peeps! The name’s Butch. And you wanna know why my biceps go berserk? (Butch flexes his biceps.) Grrrr…It’s because I got the greatest babe by my side, Blossom or Blossy. Blossom: Oh, Butch, you really are a charmer and an equally great husband. Truly the definition of the strongest and most elegant man I have in my life.   The third panel on the lower left side (Mitch x Bunny or Bunnitch) Mitch: Waddup! Name’s Mitch. (He flexes his right bicep.) And I’m hard as a rock. My wifey, Bunny Rabbit, can attest to that. Bunny (touching Mitch’s bicep): Why yes. You definitely know how to put those muscles of yours to work, Mitchie.   The fourth panel on the lower right side (Boomer x Bubbles or Boomubbles) Boomer: Hey! Name’s Boomer. (He flexes his pectoral muscles.) And my pecs go boom boom whenever I see milady, Bubbles, smile. Bubbles: Oh, my handsome Boomie! I’m the luckiest girl in the whole world to have someone like you.   Finale Brick: I’m Brick. Buttercup: I’m Buttercup. Butch: I’m Butch. Blossom: I’m Blossom. Mitch: I’m Mitch. Bunny: I’m Bunny. Boomer: I’m Boomer. Bubbles: And I’m Bubbles. Brick, Butch, Mitch, Boomer, Blossom, Buttercup, Bubbles, and Bunny: And we wanna wish you a HAPPY FOURTH OF JULY!!! WOOHOOHOO!!!   Here we have Townsville’s and in Mitch’s and Bunny’s case Citysville’s all-American heroes having a great time at the beach and enjoying the surf on the Fourth of July. There’s nothing more enjoyable than seeing my most beloved OTPs of all time, Brickercup, Blossutch, Bunnitch, and Boomubbles, looking phenomenal and being the power couples that they are.   My main source of inspiration to make this was Soraya7’s Fun in the Sun, which was a piece of work I totally love. I will admit that I am rather envious of how she was able to make Brick, Butch, and Boomer look so hunky and handsome and Blossom, Buttercup, and Bubbles look so gorgeous, and I wish I could make them all as attractive as she did. I really love her work to bits and you should go check it out. After taking a gander at that awesome piece of work, I decided to remix it by giving my piece of fan art not only a summer feel but also something that screams Fourth of July pride though not as blatantly obvious. So, I want to thank Soraya for her great RRB/PPG fanart, I hope she continues to do more of that in the future, and, Soraya, I wish you a most blessed Fourth of July.   I would also love to give my warmest Fourth of July greetings to all of the wonderful shippers and fanart specialists of Brickercup, Blossutch, Bunnitch, and Boomubbles. You all know who you are and I am wholly grateful for everything you have contributed so far. May your summer as well as your Fourth of July be splendid and may you celebrate this very special day with joy in your hearts.   Brick, Butch, Mitch, Boomer, Blossom, Buttercup, Bubbles, and Bunny from The Powerpuff Girls belong to Craig McCracken and Cartoon Network.

Eat You Alive! drawn by me

This piece of Rowdyruff/Powerpuff fan art is dedicated to a fellow DeviantArtist, talking2mazelf. I wish you a most pleasant, prosperous, and blessed birthday and keep up the great work you have with your Powerpuff Girls fan art. It appears that the awesome members of Team Xtreme have gotten themselves into another bloody monster battle and another piece of trouble seems to be looming over them. However, given their expressions here, thus bearing a certain Yandere vibe, one can say that perpetrators better run like bats out of Hell, lest they encounter themselves with death, destruction, and an ultimatum to end all ultimatums. Narrator: The City of Townsville…is under attack by three giant monsters! (Three hulking monsters, one aquamarine, one dark blue, and one violet, are crashing some buildings. Team Xtreme consisting of Brick, Butch, Boomer, Blossom, Buttercup, and Bubbles arrive flying swiftly in the scene.) Narrator: No need to fear for Team Xtreme is here. Brick: Butch, you and Buttercup handle the one in aquamarine. Bubbles, you and Boomer take care of the one in violet. And Bloss. Blossom: Yes, Brick. Brick: Let’s take care of Mr. Midnight Blue. Blossom: Affirmative! (Brick and Blossom fly to the dark blue monster and zap it with their laser eye beams in order to weaken it. However, the monster uses its claws to slash Brick’s and Blossom’s clothes. The reds don’t give up, as Brick uses his fire breath to roast the monster and Blossom uses her ice breath to immobilize it.) (Cut to Boomer and Bubbles.) Boomer: All right, Bubbles. You ready to give him the sonic shock ball. Bubbles: You bet, Boomie! (Boomer and Bubbles have electricity surging out of their hands, as they form an electric ball. They then throw it to the violet monster giving it the shock of its life.) (Cut to Butch and Buttercup.) Butch: Yo, BC! Let’s say we bust this big, ugly thing up. Buttercup: Heard ya loud and clear, Butcher! (Butch and Buttercup clap their hands sending strong shockwaves to the aquamarine monster. After that, all six members of Team Xtreme assemble.) Brick: All right, team! Butch: Let’s end this! (Brick, Butch, Boomer, Blossom, Buttercup, and Bubbles power up and a surge of energy flows within their bodies. They charge at the monsters with one explosive punch. Brick and Butch knock the aquamarine monster out cold. Boomer and Blossom punch the violet monster, thus being covered in blood and guts. Finally, Buttercup and Bubbles punch out the dark blue monster. After that, all six superheroes land on the ground as the monsters’ corpses rain down on them. Moreover, they are covered in blood.) Narrator: Wow! Now that’s teamwork right there. But what’s this? It looks like there has been a prison breakout and those prisoners are about to attack Team Xtreme! What are they to do now? (Brick, Butch, Boomer, Blossom, Buttercup, and Bubbles turn to the direction of the escaped convicts. Their glares are enough to make them stop dead in their tracks.) Prisoner 1: Well, if it ain’t Team Xtreme themselves. What’cha gonna do? Use your powers on us? (The escaped prisoners laugh. However, the six superheroes are unfazed by their puerile remark.) Prisoner 2: If you ain’t gonna attack us, we’re gonna attack you! (The escaped prisoners then band together and mercilessly beat up all the members of Team Xtreme, thus giving them bruises, black-eyes, lacerations, broken noses, broken teeth, and more blood coming out from their bodies.) Prisoner 1: Guess you ain’t so tough after all! Prisoner 3: Yeah! (Just as the escaped prisoners are about to leave, ominous chuckling is being heard and it’s coming from Brick, Butch, Boomer, Blossom, Buttercup, and Bubbles.) Narrator: Oh, no. I don’t like the sound of this. Something wicked this way comes and it can’t believe it’s from Team Xtreme. (The ominous chuckling gradually turns to maniacal laughter as Brick, Butch, Boomer, Blossom, Buttercup, and Bubbles turn to the direction of the escaped prisoners. Their faces bear a sadistic and twisted grin, as if though they are harbingers of doom, death, destruction, and despair.) Brick: You know what? You punks should never have done that. (Brick cracks his neck and rolls his shoulders.) Butch: Now that I think about it you’re all gonna die this very instant and it’s gonna be exciting. (Butch is twitching and lets out a low, animalistic growl.) Boomer: Man, talk about a bad time to escape. (Boomer cracks his knuckles.) Blossom: It seems that your idle hands are doing the devil’s work and you might as well abandon hope. (Blossom prepares her fists for punching.) Buttercup: Now you morons are gonna get it. (Buttercup puts her left fist in her right hand.) Bubbles: We’re gonna enjoy punishing you all. (Bubbles stretches her legs and emits a low, wicked cackle.) Brick: And you know what we’re gonna do to you? Butch: You know what we’re gonna do to you all? (Brick, Butch, Boomer, Blossom, Buttercup, and Bubbles lick the blood off of their gloves, off of their skin, and off of their mouths. After that, they swallow their own blood and emit a sigh of satisfaction.) Brick, Butch, Boomer, Blossom, Buttercup, and Bubbles (in an ominous, spine-chilling tone and twisted grins still on their faces): We’re gonna eat you alive. (The escaped prisoners are quivering with terror.) Prisoner 1: Please have mercy on us. Prisoner 2: We didn’t mean to attack you all. Prisoner 3: We just wanted to have some fun. Right? Other prisoners (nervously): Yeah, that’s right. (Brick and Butch cackle.) Brick: Oh, have fun? (Brick twitches and his red aura powers up.) Butch: After what you’ve done to us?! (Butch twitches and his forest green aura powers up.) Boomer (ominously): You pissed us off for the last time. (Boomer twitches and his cobalt blue aura powers up.) Blossom (in a cold tone): Now. Give us one good reason why we should not rip you all apart. (Blossom twitches and her pink aura powers up.) Buttercup (coldly):…

Welcome to the Lions’ Den drawn by me

This piece of RRB/PPG fanart, known in my headcanon as the superhero team Team Xtreme, is dedicated to a fellow DeviantArtist, Petia or jailbaitCAT, who is celebrating her birthday. So, jailbaitCAT, I hope you enjoy my gift to you. Your Rowdyruff Boys/Powerpuff Girls fanart is completely amazing and entertaining and they leave me with a huge smile on my face. I wish you a great birthday and lots of love to you. It is commonplace that lions stick and fight together as one pride. Well, for Team Xtreme they are proof positive. Moreover, it looks like our dear Team Xtreme members have gone feral, as in they are acting like lions roaring at the top of their lungs and protecting their pride against any trespasser. Their prey of choice would usually be vandals, arsonists, robbers, demons, monsters, and all types of villains who dare disturb their peace. They also hunt for the usual antelope, zebra, and buffalo much like every lion. Brick and Butch are the Alpha Males of this pride. Their fierceness, strength, and ferocity are legendary. If any invader dares to trespass or disturb the peace, these muscular warriors will not hesitate to sound the call by beating their chests complete with their earth-shattering roars and let their teammates come to arms. In terms of their relationship with each other, they enjoy testing their strength and engaging in close-contact battles with each other to prove who the stronger Alpha Male really is. They are also tough on their younger brother, Boomer, but tender to their mates, Blossom and Buttercup, and even playful to their youngest teammate, Bubbles. Boomer may not be that much of an Alpha Male like his older brothers but he is very reliable in terms of his incredible strength and speed. Brick and Butch love to show their dominance by flexing their muscles at Boomer. He would retaliate by flexing back at them and challenging them to a wrestling match. Back when he was a cub, he would always lose to Brick and Butch. However, now as a full-grown adult, he manages to show his older brother who they should never mess with. While he has a mate in Bubbles, he also likes to get it on with Blossom and Buttercup with his older brothers’ approval, as they know how close he is to all of the girls. Blossom and Buttercup function as the queens of their tribe. Their authority, courage, fierceness, and combat prowess are indubitably unrivaled. Blossom bears intuition, intellect, and agility which make her reliable in planning attacks. On the other hand, Buttercup bears a warrior’s pride, as she loves a good challenge. Seeing as they are Brick’s and Butch’s mates, though they also trade mates from time to time, Blossom and Buttercup ensure that they do not do anything rash, thus having their agility and speed be a perfect complement to Brick’s and Butch’s brawns. They are also tender to Boomer, as they see that underneath his brawny shell lies a kind soul who is willing to protect their pride. Bubbles may be the youngest and the sweetest on the outside, but anger her and she will unleash her unbridled fury on those who oppose her. She’s playful and respectful to Brick and Butch, loving and tender towards Boomer, as he is her mate, and extremely close to her older sisters, Blossom and Buttercup. Moreover, she loves to ensure the peace within their pride. Well, I hope you enjoy this. Now, Brick, Butch, Boomer, Blossom, Buttercup, Bubbles, any last words for our viewers? Brick: Yeah. Butch: We got this to say. Boomer: And we hope you listen. Blossom: And look closely. Buttercup: Because if you don’t… Bubbles: Well, let’s just say something unpleasant might happen. (Brick and Butch raise their arms up in the air then stretch them sideways. After that, they flex their biceps.) Brick and Butch: Grrrrr…..ROOOOOARRR!!!!!! (Brick and Butch then take a deep breath and beat their chests complete with Tarzan’s signature ululation.) Brick and Butch: AAAAAAAAAAHHHHH!!!!!! (Boomer flexes his pecs while putting one knee on the ground.) Boomer: Grrrrr… (Boomer then flexes his bicep.) Boomer: ROOOOOAAAARRR!!!! (Blossom gets into a crouching position and raises her hand, as if though she were going to claw he prey.) Blossom (starts hissing, then…): ROAAAAAARRRR!!!! (Buttercup gets herself into her combat stance with claws unleashed.) Buttercup: ROAAAAAARRRRR!!!!!!!! (Bubbles prepares herself to lunge and unleashes her claws.) Bubbles: ROOOOAAAAARRRR!!!!!! Brick, Butch, Boomer, Blossom, Buttercup, and Bubbles: Grrrrr… Bubbles (cheerily): Oh, by the way. Brick, Butch, Boomer, Blossom, Buttercup, and Bubbles: Happy birthday, Petia aka jailbaitCAT! We hope you have an awesome birthday. Take care and lots of love from all of us. Well, I hope you enjoyed this. Now if you excuse me, I have to prepare for a Spanish exam tomorrow. As we say in Spanish, hasta la próxima y Buenas Noches. Brick, Butch, Boomer, Blossom, Buttercup, and Bubbles from The Powerpuff Girls belong to Craig McCracken and Cartoon Network.

Pumped Up and Prepared to Pummel drawn by me

I have a question for you all that I am confident you will know the answer to.   What happens when you combine two virile, brawny studs in the forms of Brick and Butch and two tough, sexy babes in the forms of Blossom and Buttercup?   You get one of the most badass and most epic quartets not only known to man but also, to some extent, superhero history and even all of Townsville. Ergo, two rough, brawny, studly hunks plus two kickass, tough, fierce ladies equal Townsville’s Strongest Brawling Bruiser Quartet! Here we have Brick and Butch being the absolutely shredded muscle beasts and pillars of unlimited fortitude that they are and showing off their vascular veins, and their babes for life, Blossom and Buttercup, cracking their knuckles with a look of ferocity, fierceness, and determination and preparing themselves to knock out any criminal who dares to cross their paths. Just their presence alone is enough to make anyone quake at the sight of not only Brick’s and Butch’s muscles but also Blossom’s and Buttercup’s toughness and unparalleled combat skills.   So, children and all those who are young at heart. Remember. Don’t do any form of crime. Or else these four brawling bruisers will make you do the time in a mega hardcore manner.   Brick, Butch, Blossom, and Buttercup from The Powerpuff Girls belong to Craig McCracken.

My RRB/PPG Ships

The PPG/RRB Shipping Chart was originally created by QuietLullabies.   Well, I am in the marvelous city of Madrid, Spain, where I will be celebrating my 26th birthday. Yes, I know, another year older, another year wiser. So, to celebrate my upcoming birthday here’s my take on the whole PPG/RRB shipping meme chart.   I have been seeing fellow artists’ takes on these pairings. Some were interesting, some were a bit one-sided, and some were actually well-thought out and I enjoyed reading their opinions on the Rowdyruffs and Powerpuffs they like or not like to pair up with. So, without ado, here’s my take on the PPG/RRB shippings.   OTPs: Boomer/Bubbles or Boomubbles- In my opinion, this has to be the most plausible and overall best of not only the color-coded RRB/PPG pairings but also RRB/PPG pairings in general. These two seem like they are destined to be for each other and are akin to the star-crossed lovers that I have seen in the media and literature, i.e. Romeo and Juliet. I am very sure that these two would start leaving behind any animosity if the Rowdyruff Boys became good guys, joined forces with the Powerpuff Girls and will be the first to show loads of forgiveness and compassion, while they are still young children. Eventually, Boomer and Bubbles would start becoming the closest of friends and comrades, thus building a healthy and genuine relationship between the two. Once they reach their tweens and teens, they would develop even deeper feelings for each other and will actually go on more dates, aside from the usual crime-fighting they have to do. Plus, in my headcanon, they would end up being the first to marry in their late teens to their early 20s and have children with Boomer being the loving, well-meaning father and Bubbles being the supportive, compassionate mother, in spite of the fact that they are the youngest of their respective sibling groups. It’s no surprise why I love the Blues when they are together. It’s because of not only their appeal of being adorable, sweet, and/or lovely but it also has this fairytale-like feel in their relationship, where after every trial, every challenge, and every hardship, Boomer and Bubbles still have each others’ backs and will seem to be the couple that will stay faithful to each other until the end of time.   The Reds and the Greens were rather interesting to pair up because not only do I like Blossick and Butchercup, even though they can be a tad bit overrated, but I also enjoy Brickercup and Blossutch as much as the former. Moreover, the Reds and the Greens don’t really have that fairy tale, lovey-dovey, sentimental vibe that the Blues have, thus showing how tough being in a relationship is, yet at the same time it is reassuring, as principles of respect, responsibility, compassion, allegiance, and trust need to be put in to practice, not only with each other but also for the good of their team. So, here’s my take on these pairings, even though I made it kind of clear in my OT4 drawing of Bricksomutchercup. I still keep my word that Brick, Butch, Blossom, and Buttercup are the strongest OT4 in my opinion, hence that’s why I dub them to be my Four Favorite Bruisers of All Time because of their unwaveringly strong personalities and overall determination. Plus, I imagine the Reds and the Greens living together under one roof, with the Blues living in another house. So, here are my explanations, anyway.   Brick/Blossom or Blossick- I put this as my first choice because they seem to be the ones who follow suit when it comes to Boomer and Bubbles being together. As they grow up and form a six-person superhero team, I can see them still obtaining responsibilities of being leaders as well as the eldest children with Brick and his large-and-in-charge warlord personality who ensures a fair fight, great combat skills from all of his teammates, and a grand victory for every mission they do and Blossom and her tendency to be the team mom who ensures strategy to be present in battle and the overall safety of not only her beloved but also her comrades. I can see their romance as not being that of a fairy tale but one that is really challenging, as walls need to be broken down, trust has to be formed, and respect and allegiance need to be put to practice. Sure, they would initially have difficulty trusting and respecting each other. However, as time goes by, they would start to see each other for who they are. Brick would see that Blossom is not always Little Miss Perfect and Blossom would see that Brick has some insecurities, which are more often than not hidden in this proud personality. Together, these two can take what primal doubts and insecurities they have and take them in stride, thus helping each other reach their full potential not only physically but psychologically as well. As young adults in their twenties, they and the Greens would even have a double wedding after their youngest siblings’ matrimony and as parents, I can imagine Blossom being the stern, well-meaning, and supportive mom and Brick being the strong, tough, and really loving dad. I really love this pairing because it does show how being in a relationship is not always easy but when two people have patience, trust, respect, allegiance, and understanding anything is possible.   Butch/Buttercup or Butchercup- Ah, yes. One of the Takahashi couples to end all Takahashi couples because of their volcanically belligerent sexual tension. They would be the couple who would argue and shout one moment and be cuddly and make love to each other in the next. As I stated before, Ranma and Akane would end up paling in comparison to Butch’s and Buttercup’s brand of belligerent sexual tension. As the toughest and most volatile fighters, with Butch being the big muscle and Buttercup being the…

Bricksomutchercup: OT4 for Life

Since this is spring, there’s nothing lovelier nor more gorgeous nor more calming than to see my most beloved bruisers, Brick, Blossom, Butch, and Buttercup, looking nice and having a serene, lovey-dovey moment with each other in the forest. This piece of fanart is dedicated to all the shippers of Blossick, Butchercup, Brickercup, and Blossutch. Moreover, the character ages in this pic are Brick, 23, Blossom, 22, Butch, 23, and Buttercup, 22. Having to draw my favorite OT4 of all time proved to be easier said than done. Nonetheless, I accepted the challenge I bestowed upon myself. Character positioning was one thing but the one I really had to perfect was all of the hand positionings. Heavens, talk about having to decipher who holds who and I thankfully found my way around it. As if it were not already obvious, Brick has arms around Blossom with his left hand extending to hold Buttercup’s hand. Blossom has her left hand on Brick’s left arm, as her right hand is touching Butch’s hand. Butch has his left arm around Blossom’s shoulder and his right arm around Buttercup’s waist. And finally, Buttercup has her right hand touching Brick’s left hand, which is covered by Blossom’s long hair and has her left hand on Butch’s left shoulder. So, there you have it, my OT4 for life. As much as I really like to ship Brick/Blossom or Blossick and Butch/Buttercup or Butchercup, I find both Brick/Buttercup or Brickercup and Butch/Blossom or Blossutch to be equally as compatible, plausible, lovely, endearing, entertaining, and just plain awesome as the main color-coded shipping of the Reds and the Greens. I am fully aware that Blossick is shipped to high heaven, but here’s my take on this pairing. In my opinion, it’s a relationship based on trust, respect, understanding, letting go of any prejudices, and breaking each others’ walls down. When one combines Brick’s street smarts with Blossom’s book smarts, it’s a team-up to be reckoned with. Sure, Blossom has to put up with Brick’s abrasive attitude and occasional anger issues, and he has to put up with her tendency to overanalyze and overthink things. However, they seem to find common ground and iron things out, hopefully for the best. Plus, Blossom is the paradigm of morality and perfection, while Brick is the paradigm of ensuring an authoritative nature without question and impulsivity. While they might seem like the undisputed commanders and leaders on the outside, they might have their own crippling flaws on the inside, thus showing they are not perfect. In spite of their imperfections, they very much have to take them in stride not only as the eldest children of their brood but also as leaders and role models and acknowledge each others’ flaws and insecurities so that they can help each other improve without the need to be condescending nor bear any animosity whatsoever. Thus showing a relationship that over time can flourish into something more. Even more so, while Brick tends to think with his fists with a good amount of tactics, Blossom thinks with her head when planning an attack. In terms of whatever ills they had with each other in the past, they would end up forgiving each other and starting anew letting go of all the anxieties of the old and striving towards a better future. I am also completely aware that Butchercup is shipped to shipped to high heaven and here’s my take on it. Move over, Ranma and Akane! Get lost, Inuyasha and Kagome! Take a hike, Ataru and Lum! Because there’s a new Takahashi couple in town that will wipe the floor with their brand of belligerent sexual tension and overall volatility and that is Butch and Buttercup. I kind of see them as one of the Takahashi couples to end all Takahashi couples because of the fact that they are stubborn, hard-headed, volatile, and seem to be the type of people that will shout at each other one moment and make out in the next moment. It’s not like I have anything against these type of couples, with the exception of Inuyasha and Kagome, as I cannot stand how much dominance she thinks she has over him with the Beads of Subjugation, hence my deep-seated hatred for this pairing, it’s just that at times the Takahashi couple do tend to be entertaining but when their relationship status drags the plot along, it can be rather tedious to see the two characters as a plausible or healthy couple. You may be asking, why do I not like Inuyasha and Kagome as a couple, but like Butch and Buttercup together? Well, it all chalks down to Butch and Buttercup being the toughest and strongest fighters of their groups and, boy, do they do a lot of the fighting. So, being emotional or lovey-dovey or syrupy is completely out of the question, as I am sure that they are the type of people who have zero tolerance for anything saccharine. However, when they combine their combat prowess, it is definitely a team-up to be reckoned with, and their ritual as a couple would be pummeling criminals by day and making steamy love to each other by night. Inuyasha and Kagome, on the other hand, I could never get into this pairing because there are times that Kagome, in spite of her growing archery skills and her position as the main female protagonist, is often given the role of being the damsel in distress, and it’s usually up to Inuyasha to save her. While the usage of the Beads of Subjugation was meant as protection in the first half of Inuyasha, there were times in later episodes that they were used for petty punishment against Inuyasha, even if he did not deserve it. Thus, making Inuyasha’s and Kagome’s relationship kind of toxic, as Kagome comes off as domineering towards Inuyasha as the lapdog. At least with Butch and Buttercup, sure, they can get into each others’ skins, but at least they…

PPG AU: The Four Holy Beasts drawn by me

Hello, once again. Antoni, here, and this is what happens when you are a fan of not only anime like Inuyasha and YuYu Hakusho and cartoons like The Powerpuff Girls but also of Asian folklore. Such as the case of the Four Holy Beasts, known in Japanese as Shishin, Shiju, Shishou or Shirei and in Chinese as Si Shou consisting of the dragon, the tiger, the turtle, and the phoenix. So, when I combined my fascination of the Four Holy Beasts and of Brick, Butch, Blossom, and Buttercup being turned into yokai, an idea for an AU or Alternate Universe retelling was born. From left to right we have Seiryu Brick, Byakko Butch, Genbu Blossom, and Suzaku Buttercup. Yes, I know the color coding is a lot more different for the Holy Beasts like Seiryu is blue, Byakko is white, Genbu is black, and Suzaku reddish-yellow but I decided to focus more on the traits which are appropriate for Brick, Butch, Blossom, and Buttercup, as I will explain when I talk about them individually.   It should be no surprise that I am completely fascinated by the supernatural, especially when legends like this are adapted into anime or other creative works. I have encountered the Four Holy Beasts in anime like Yu Yu Hakusho, Inuyasha, and Fushigi Yugi, and each of these adaptations has something special to give to the table. For that, my fascination grew to the point where I was completely invested in knowing more about them.   Going into my AU, I envision Brick, Butch, Blossom, and Buttercup in the Edo Period of Japan as the loyal and protective warrior guardians to their respective youngest siblings, who in turn are the Celestial Rulers, Prince Boomer on the guys’ side and Princess Bubbles on the girls’ side. Do not fret, for I will definitely take care of what Boomer-oujisama and Bubbles-himesama are going to look like. Even more so, they are all married, Brick is with Blossom, Butch is with Buttercup, and, obviously, Boomer is with Bubbles. Though, since the four main protagonists of this AU are yokai, they will end up switching partners from time to time like having Brick with Buttercup and Butch with Blossom, and on a more platonic tough love between siblings level Blossom with Buttercup and Brick with Butch. These four will go out of their to not only ensure their rulers’ safety but to also have each others’ backs when it comes to fighting demons or any other mortal who dares to be an intruder to the Celestial Realm. Brick, Butch, Blossom, and Buttercup work together as one team to combine their insurmountable powers for good and to maintain the natural balance of the world. With that said, let’s get on to the characters themselves.   Seiryu Brick, also known as the Crimson Dragon, is the undisputed and choleric leader of this quartet of yokai warriors. He rules this group with an iron fist and more often than not has the final say in decision-making. As the overall eldest yokai, appearing to be about 26 years old, he ensures that his teammates not only do what he says but he also makes sure that they are safe from harm. His unparalleled skills in hand-to-hand combat, as well as his expertise in war, have certainly made Brick an ideal leader, as he can pinpoint his opponents’ strengths and weaknesses, thus using those facets to his advantage. Despite being a strong leader to his group, he is extremely prone to anger and runs the risk of being too demanding, especially when failure comes knocking at their door or when someone hurts any of his comrades. He is also prone to having clashes with his teammates from his younger brother, Butch, to his wife, Blossom, to his sister-in-law, Buttercup, when it comes to a disagreement in a plan or when power struggles occur between the four. In spite of some moments of strife, Brick deeply cares for his three comrades and he always has their backs. Brick’s main abilities are pyrokinesis, superstrength, especially when it comes to his lethal Fire Fist which can disintegrate any opponent with the drop of a hat and using his claws, which are sharp enough to slice through steel.   Brick is definitely ideal for being a dragon yokai mostly because of his fiery temper, choleric nature, large-and-in-charge, and overall manly personality. I also figure that his personality and mannerisms are akin to a warlord or general who ensures order and will not take no for an answer. He also seems to be the guy who is harsh towards his enemies and rather tender to his friends, even though he does not always show it. In terms of his outfit, I let him have a dragon tattoo on the chest to the shoulder area and I also gave him something that is also akin to a big, strong warlord. His gauntlets and shoulder pads are made of dragon scales, which also serve as his armor. Even more so, his cape is a great addition, as it makes him a proud and noble warrior who leads with not only his fists but with loads of respect.   Byakko Butch, also known as the Virescent Tiger, is the muscle of the group. He is also the savage one, as nothing can seem to tame him, unless his older brother, Brick, gives him a knock on the head, his sister-in-law, Blossom, admonishes him or his wife, Buttercup, soothes him in her own special way. As the second oldest in this group, also appearing to be about 26 years old, he also has a duty to share with Brick in ensuring that his comrades stay out of trouble. While Brick is the more analytical one in battle, Butch is the type of guy who just goes head-on without a second thought. His brute strength is what makes him both famous and infamous. Famous because he uses it to save lives and do the general…
