“Vorrei ancora un attimo soltanto per il sogno mio d’amor, Ed io saprei rapirti con il canto dolcissimo del mio cuor. Ma tu non senti questo mio grido e forse non ricordi quando mi stringevi e fra i baci mi sussurravi: “Io no potrò dimenticarlo mai!” Amore mio, sapessi com’è amaro! Qui tutto mi parla ancora di te, Io piango e rido e grido e parlo e tremo, e spero, per non morir! Ma intanto brucia l’anima vibrante nello spasimo, vibrante nello spasimo, e tutto s’accende un sogno d’amor: carezze, baci, estasi che non rivivrò. O bocca amata, o mani che adorai, mai più potrò amar così! O voce cara, o cuor che a me si aprì, perchè, perchè l’amor fini? Amor, amor, amor!” -Sogno d’Amore, Andrea Bocelli after Franz Liszt’s Liebestraum No. 3, S. 541/3, From the album Sentimento recorded between September 30 and October 7, 2000, and released on November 5, 2002 English Translation Courtesy of LyricsTranslate: “I would like just one more moment in my dream of love and I would know how to captivate you with a song The sweetest one of my heart. But you don’t hear this scream of mine And maybe you don’t remember When you held me tight And whispered between kisses: “I will never be able to forget this!” My love, if I knew how bitter it would be! Everything here still speaks of you, I cry and scream and laugh and scream and talk and tremble and hope that I don’t die! But meanwhile my soul burns Vibrantly in spams Vibrantly in spams And everything kindles a dream of love: Caresses, kisses, ecstasy that I won’t relive. Oh beloved mouth, oh hands that once adored, Never again will I be able to love like that! Oh dear voice, oh heart that one opened itself to me Why, why did the love end? Love, love, love!” This piece of Prinack fanart is part of my dearest friend’s Kaitlyn’s aka KatyGorl’s Claim a PPG Pairing Month. Come se dice in italiano, vi piace amici miei. Here we have Jack Spicer and his darling wife Princess Morbucks-Spicer being the absolute lovebirds that they are. If you cannot tell what is transcribed on their shirts, well, Jack’s shirt is translated from its original Italian as “Princess is the queen of my dreams”, while Princess’s is “Jack is the king of my heart”. That is just how much these two tycoons fancy the pants off of each other and I am sure many a Prinack fan cannot have enough of this awesome goodness. Franz Liszt’s Liebestraum has been a childhood favorite of mine mostly because of the gorgeous melodies, tone, feel and how this particular piece of music manages to sweep me off my feet. When it put into to song, especially done by the ever fine Signore Andrea Bocelli, it is an experience that is so worthwhile. So, I give you all Signore Bocelli’s rendition of Sogno D’Amore from his 2002 album Sentimento. Vi piace con ascoltare. I hope you all enjoyed this song as you gaze into the loveliness that is Prinack. See you all in the next submission. Jack Spicer from Xiaolin Showdown belongs to Christy Hui and Kids’ WB.

“Und morgen wird die Sonne wieder scheinen und auf dem Wege, den ich gehen werde, wird uns, die Glücklichen sie wieder einen inmitten dieser sonnenatmenden Erde… und zu dem Strand, dem weiten, wogenblauen, werden wir still und langsam niedersteigen, stumm werden wir uns in die Augen schauen, und auf uns sinkt des Glückes stummes Schweigen…” – Morgen Opus 27 Number 4 composed by Richard Strauss, Lyrics and Poem by John Henry Mackay (1864-1933), composed on May 21, 1894. English Translation: “And tomorrow the sun will shine again And on the way which I shall follow She will again unite us lucky ones As all around us the earth breathes in the sun Slowly, silently, we will climb down To the wide beach and the blue waves In silence, we will look in each other’s eyes And the mute stillness of happiness will sink upon us.” This piece of Prinack fanart, which is part of BrickercupMasterX3’s Prinack month, is dedicated to Taylor Wyatt aka Whyboy who will be celebrating his birthday tomorrow. I know this was also supposed to be tomorrow’s submission, but I have so much to do both with my fanart drawing and with school considering that I am about to graduate and head off to university. So, Taylor, may your birthday be ecstatic, energetic, elegant, blessed, and phenomenal. I wish you a lot of joy, love, honor, fame, and prosperity in everything you do as an artist. Wie wir auf deutsch sagen, ich wünsche für deinen besonderen Tag morgen viel Glück, Liebe, Ehre, Ruhm, und Wohlstand in allen, dass du als Künstler tust. Boy, do I happen to make German Lieder fit quite well with two fabulous tycoons like Jack Spicer and his wife Princess Morbucks-Spicer. And I love it! The structure of the music, the nuances of the melodies, and the pristine technique one needs to pull said Lieder off are tasks that easier said than done, but once mastered, one can be on the way to do such musical poetry great justice. Sure, summer may be almost over, but that does not stop either Jack or Princess from enjoying a lovely moment on the beach soaking up that fresh ocean goodness. Plus, I thought Morgen would be a lovely song choice for these two in their most serene moments. That’s why I also gathered five of my most favorite interpreters of Richard Strauss’s Morgen Diana Damrau, Soile Isokoski, Jessye Norman, Fritz Wunderlich, and Jussi Björling. There is something wonderfully special in each of their voices. Whether it would be Diana Damrau’s clean and clear technique, Soile Isokoski’s luminous and glowing tone, Jessye Norman’s plushness and nobility, Fritz Wunderlich’s peerless style or Jussi Björling’s unparalleled musicianship, there’s always something unique in each of these singers that I enjoy tremendously. So, I hope you enjoy listening to these selections as much as you enjoy taking a look at this lovely Prinack fanart. Diana Damrau Soile Isokoski Jessye Norman Fritz Wunderlich Jussi Björling I hope you all enjoyed listening to these five selections as well as this piece of Prinack of fanart. If you have a definitive favorite from each of the five selections of interpreters who sang Richard Strauss’s Morgen, please let me know in the comments below. Until then, as we say in German, alles Liebe und bis bald. Jack Spicer from Xiaolin Showdown belongs to Christy Hui and Kids’ WB.

This piece of Prinack fanart, as part of my dear BrickercupMasterX3’s Prinack month, is dedicated to Eugenia Makiewicz aka Hagallaz who celebrated her birthday a few days ago. So, Eugenia, I hope you had a blessed, wonderful, blissful, and awesome birthday. I also wish you abundance, love, and joy in your life as both an artist and as a person. Furthermore, I dedicate this to all of the fine people who ship Jack Spicer with Princess Morbucks. I hope you all enjoy this picture with their offspring. What is seen before you, is an influential family consisting of a loving, well-meaning, and rather dashing patriarch in the form of Jack Spicer, his feisty, fiery wife Princess Morbucks-Spicer, and their children: eldest identical twin daughter Margaret and Melanie, who are four years old, middle identical twin sons Nicholas and Napoleon, who are three years old, and youngest daughter Samantha, who is a year old. Let us see how these children came to be. It was one calm evening in the Bahamas, where Jack and Princess were having their honeymoon. All of the sudden, the calmness subsided when Princess announced to her dear husband that she was pregnant, thus returning to Townsville with such glee. The ultrasound showed that she was going to give birth to twin girls. She was very excited about having daughters she and Jack can call their own and in the next months, Princess began to crave for all types berries, watermelon, and even sushi. It all came to a head on April 3, 2014, when Jack and Princess rushed to Townsville Hospital and gave birth to two lovely daughters named Margaret Elizabeth Venus Spicer and Melanie Mary Serena Spicer. When naming their daughters, Jack and Princess had heated discussions, as Jack wanted them to be named Elizabeth and Mary respectively because of the biblical significance found in the former being John the Baptist’s mother and the latter being Jesus’s mother as well as the historical significance in the two queens of Great Britain, Elizabeth I of England and Mary Stuart, Queen of Scots, in which both cases they were cousins. Princess wanted something a little bit more trendy, hence she suggested Venus and Serena, as she happened to be a major fan of the Williams sisters and also loves how they not only look but also play tennis like the professionals that they are. Eventually, a compromise was settled when both of them came to an agreement that Margaret and Melanie would be wonderful first names. Margaret’s second names ended up being Elizabeth and Venus while Melanie’s were Mary and Serena. Margaret, the girl with the yellow frock and fuschia ribbons, and Melanie, the girl with the fuschia frock and yellow ribbons, are very much the split images of their mother from her dark red hair to her freckles to her occasionally explosive attitude. Even though both Margaret and Melanie are alike, they have their differences. Margaret is lady-like, elegant, posh and quite eloquent for her age who loves warm colors from yellow to red to orange or any of their hues. Melanie, while as posh and eloquent as Margaret is, is more outspoken, sassy, mischievous, and a bit on the tomboyish side who prefers the cold colors from purple to blue to green and all of their hues. What fascinates Jack and Princess about their eldest twin daughters is just how savvy and smart they are when it comes to spending, unlike Princess when she was a little girl. At times, they can be demanding but it is only because they want to settle for exceptional quality and not anything that is half-assed. Be it clothes or books or accessories, these little ladies know how to strike a deal. On a physical level, they are even developing as gymnasts with all of the rolling and somersaulting they have been doing in the mansion’s grand playpen. Moreover, as much as they love fairy-tales like Sleeping Beauty, Snow White, Little Mermaid, Cinderella, Rapunzel, and The Princess and the Pea, both of them have such a knack for other types of literature. Margaret is into the works by Jane Austen, L. Frank Baum, Sir Walter Scott, and Charles Dickens with her favorites being Pride and Prejudice, The Wizard of Oz, Ivanhoe, The Bride of Lammermoor, Oliver Twist, and, of course, A Christmas Carol, thus making her a fan of romantic and slice-of-life novels. Melanie, on the other hand, is more of a science fiction and action adventure person, as she is more into Edgar Rice Burroughs’ Tarzan, H.G. Wells’s The Invisible Man and The Time Machine, Jules Verne’s Around the World in Eighty Days and 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, and Rudyard Kipling’s The Jungle Book. Aside from their book smarts, they even prove themselves to be people persons, as they are also good friends with Bailey, Barley, Blaze, Brendan, and Blake to the point where they have become their best and firmest of friends. On May 30, 2015, Princess then gave birth to another set of identical twins and this time they were boys. They were christened as Nicholas Laertes Mercutio Spicer and Napoleon Archimedes Coroebus Spicer. Much like how their older sisters are the split images of their mother, Nicholas and Napoleon take after their father in almost every single aspect. Even when they wear Jack’s old goggles, it does not take a genius to know that the apple does not fall too far from the tree. Speaking of genius, both Nick and Nap have a knack for inventing their own toys, which thankfully saves his parents loads of money. Every time, Jack and Princess found a teddy bear in the donation department, the boys would dissect the toy and add in the mechanical gadgets to make a toy like that be mobile and this was done when they were merely two years old. Essentially, Nick and Nap are inventors in the making, thanks to inheriting a lot of Jack’s genius ways and…
“Quiero envolverme en tus brazos Que no quede entre tú y yo un espacio Ser el sabor de tu boca Y llenarme toda con tu aroma Ser confidente Y saber por dentro quien eres tú Como un tatuaje vivo Impregnarme en tu ser, No borrarme de ti Yo no te pido la luna Tan sólo quiero amarte Quiero se esa locura que vibra muy dentro de ti Yo no te pido la luna Sólo te pido el momento De rescatar esta piel y robarme esa estrella Que vemos tú y yo al hacer el amor. Correr en contra del viento Conocer todos tus sentimientos Dos cuerpos entrelazados, Esperemos todos los inviernos Bésame, en mis labios hallaras calor Siénteme, frágil y de papel, como tiemblo por ti Yo no te pido la luna Tan sólo quiero amarte Quiero se esa locura que vibra muy dentro de ti Yo no te pido la luna Sólo te pido el momento De rescatar esta piel y robarme esa estrella Que vemos tú y yo al hacer el amor. Yo no te pido la luna-na Sólo quiero tenerte muy cerca de mi Yo no te pido la luna-na Sólo pido entregarme para siempre a ti Yo no te pido la luna Tan sólo quiero amarte Quiero se esa locura que vibra muy dentro de ti Yo no te pido la luna Sólo te pido el momento De rescatar esta piel y robarme esa estrella Que vemos tú y yo al hacer el amor.” – Yo No Te Pido La Luna, Daniela Romo, Luigi Albertelli, Enzo Malepasso, and Zucchero Fornaciari, 1984, original Italian version, “Non voglio mica la luna” English translation: “I want to wrap myself in your arms So that no space will exist between us I want to be the taste that lingers in your mouth And to have your fragrance all over me I want to be your confidant And to get to know who are you on the inside I want to be like a living tattoo to embed myself into your being Not to be removed from you I’m not asking you for the moon All I want is to love you I want to be that madness That vibrates deep inside you I’m not asking you for the moon I am just asking to have the moment To save this skin To steal that star That you and I see When we make love Running against the wind I want to know all of your feelings To have our bodies entwined And let’s wait for all the winters that will come Kiss me and you will find warmth in my lips Feel how I am fragile and almost like paper And how I shiver because of you I’m not asking you for the moon All I want is to have you really close to me I’m not asking you for the moon All I want is to surrender myself to you forever I’m not asking you for the moon All I want is to love you I want to be that madness That vibrates deep inside you I’m not asking you for the moon I am just asking to have the moment To save this skin To steal that star That you and I see When we make love” This piece of Prinack fanart, as part of BrickercupMasterX3’s Prinack month, is dedicated to a fellow DeviantArtist who celebrated her birthday two days ago, Samanta aka JACKSPICERCHASE. So, Sam, I hope you had a marvelous, magnificent, and fabulous birthday and I wish you a lot of beauty and blessings in your life as an artist. Wie wir auf deutsch sagen, ich hoffe, dass du einen herrlichen, grandiosen und fantastischen Geburtstag hattest, und ich wünsche dir viel Schönheit und Segen in deinem Leben als Künstler. Como decimos en español, espero que hayas tenido un cumpleaños maravilloso, magnífico y fabuloso y te deseo mucha belleza y bendiciones en tu vida como artista. It’s time for Jack and Princess to do some disco-dancing to this Mexican tune and it looks like they are really enjoying themselves, as they love to bust a move. Plus, don’t they look absolutely fabulous in their disco attire? The answer should be pretty obvious. As for the song choice, I found myself loving the absolute heck out of Daniela Romo’s Yo No te Pido La Luna and I hope you all enjoy listening to it, as much as you enjoy imagining them grooving to this song. Thanks so much for taking the time to enjoy this post in its entirety. I also apologize for the delay, but let’s just say that real life has its priorities. Thanks for your understanding.

“Siento una pena muy honda dentro del alma y quiero ahogarla con vino y caricias de amor mi vida no tiene remedio perdido ya estoy en este medio maldito de amargura y dolor. Amor de cabaret que no es sincero amor de cabaret que se paga con dinero amor de cabaret que poco a poco me mata sin embargo yo quiero amor de cabaret. Amor de cabaret que no es sincero amor de cabaret que se paga con dinero amor de cabaret que poco a poco me mata sin embargo yo quiero amor de cabaret.” – Amor de Cabaret, La Sonora Santanera English Translation: “I feel a deep pain in my soul and I want to drown it with wine and caresses of love my life does not have a remedy and I am lost in this accursed medium of bitterness and pain. Cabaret love which is not sincere cabaret love which one pays with money cabaret love which slowly kills me, however, I want cabaret love. Cabaret love which is not sincere cabaret love which one pays with money cabaret love which slowly kills me, however, I want cabaret love.” This marks my second Prinack submission, as heralded by my dear friend and fellow DeviantArtist, BrickercupMasterX3, as part of her annual Prinack month. Moreover, I dedicate this piece of Jack Spicer/Princess Morbucks fan art to a fellow DeviantArtist whose birthday was celebrated two days ago, RobotCatArt. So, I hope you had an amazing birthday. I wish you a lot of love, joy, and happiness in your life as an artist and as a person. I also dedicate this to all of the wonderful Prinack shippers out there. With that said, sit back, relax, and enjoy. Como se dice en español, siéntese, relájase y disfrute. Muchísimas gracias. It’s time for Jack Spicer and his lovely, feisty wife Princess Morbucks-Spicer to get swanky, get their moves and groove on to some tango music, and look fabulous doing so. As one can tell, they are definitely enjoying themselves. As for the song choice, I am an official fan of Amor de Cabaret composed and sung by the fine people of La Sonora Santanera. I first heard the Edith González version when she sang it in the telenovela Salomé and I was hooked. So, I also hope you enjoy the original version, as you imagine Jack and Princess doing their dance. Well, I hope you all enjoyed this and as we say in Spanish, hasta la próxima, os deseo un verano maravilloso y Dios los bendiga a todos ustedes.

This piece of Prinack art, which is part of my dearest friend BrickercupMasterX3’s Prinack month, is dedicated to a fellow reviewer on YouTube and fellow DeviantArtist, Rachel LS Charman aka EyeOfSol, who celebrated her birthday yesterday. She makes amazing animated series and movie reviews, so, please do yourselves a favor and check out her channel. She has great content to offer and she has been one of my biggest inspirations thus far. So, Rachel, I hope you had a most blessed, prosperous, wonderful, and grand birthday and here’s to many more awesome years of being the great reviewer and artist that you are. I would also love to dedicate this to all of the wonderful shippers of Prinack. I hope you all enjoy this. I came across Jack Spicer and Princess Morbucks as a couple thanks to all of the fanart done especially by the talented and absolutely phenomenal Miss PrincessCallyie. I will admit that the in-universe side of me thought that either Bud Smith/Princess Morbucks, Mitch Mitchelson/Princess Morbucks, or even Jack Spicer/Dyris were far more plausible couples. However, after doing some reflecting and some rethinking, I can safely come to the conclusion that since an über-wealthy young lady like Princess Morbucks has extremely high standards for her choice of boys, so Mitch and Bud are totally out of the question and Jack Spicer has terrible luck with women given his experiences with Kimiko, Katnappé, and Dyris. When all is said and done, these two extravagant tycoons might as well find love through each other. As you can tell from this picture, are almost like the Townsville version of Tekken’s Lee Chaolan and Anna Williams given their attire and given how much they would use their money to get themselves out of any sticky situation, in spite of the fact that they are also fighters themselves. For Jack’s outfit, I managed to maintain his signature goggles and, of course, his trademark style of wearing black. However, I also added in a few touches like giving his greyish-black shirt a silver skull to make a little bit more imposing, even though he is far from it, and silver boots with gold spikes. Princess Morbucks’s outfit was rather enjoyable to do, especially given my experience on watching my most favorite episode starring her, Stuck Up, Up and Away, which I loved when I was a seven-year-old and I still love it to this very day. I often compared Blossom’s and Princess’s epic battle to the heated sibling rivalry between Nina and Anna. Blossom almost reminded me of Nina Williams given her cool, calm, collected attitude in said battle, while Princess was almost like the split image of who Anna Williams was in terms of her fiery disposition. For that, I was rather inspired by Anna’s outfit to the point where I kept Princess’s signature colors of yellow, purple, and black. Speaking of colors, purple is considered to be a royal color and silver and gold are basically color representing wealth. So, I thought that these would go hand-in-hand with everything Jack and Princess represent both individually and as a couple. Now that that’s out of the way, let’s find out how the now 31-year-old Jack Spicer and the now 25-year-old Princess Morbucks came to be as an item and as wealthy owners of Townsville’s grandest fighting tournament organization. One can say it was fate that brought Jack and Princess together. One can say it was God, the Universe, or some higher power who beckoned these two worldly souls and told them that it was time to get their butts out of their mansions and go out into the world and find someone to make love to. Trials and tribulations were omnipresent, but despite all of the obstacles, they found each other. Jack Spicer was the type gentleman who inherited a lot of things that would make the common folk jealous ranging from abundant wealth to the ability to create and design robots for his robot army to his undying ambition to rule the world. In spite of all of these goals, dreams, ambitions and what have you, there was one thing he was a failure at and that was attracting the opposite sex all due to his cowardice, inability to be a strong fighter, and just an overall case of bad luck. Katnappé was just too spicy for him in terms of her overly mischievous attitude and he could not stand her being such a magnificent nuisance. Kimiko did not want anything to do with him, given how peeved she would be every time she saw him. Moreover, there was that one time Jack had a go with Dyris. Sure, their first encounter was akin to a fairy-tale, as if Jack were the prince and Dyris his princess and they hit it off well. However, Dyris had one dark goal and that was to take away Jack from land and have him all to herself. She did so by attempting to drown him. Luckily for Jack, Wuya and Chase Young ended up saving him, but also called him out for being stupid enough to fall for such a manipulative creature like Dyris. Eventually, Wuya made sure that Dyris either stayed as a mermaid or a human by giving her a potion that will eliminate the monstrous side of her and can only use her mermaid powers. The monster inside Dyris was eliminated and she then decided to settle for Clay Bailey, who was really forgiving after everything she did. Princess Morbucks was the girl who had everything so long as her father gives it to her. However, there was one thing that even money could not even buy and that was being a Powerpuff Girl like the Utonium sisters, Blossom, Buttercup, Bubbles, and Bunny. Her jealousy of the Utonium sisters heightened when the reformed Rowdyruff Boys ended up joining forces with the Powerpuff Girls becoming the superhero team, Team Xtreme. Every time,…
