Well, it’s Halloween and Team Xtreme’s very own Beastly Brawn, Brainy Beauty Watermelon Couple Butch and Blossom are celebrating this wonderful holiday with their children. As you can clearly see, they are all dressed to the nines in different elaborate costumes. On the left-hand side, we have the eldest daughter Azalea, twin sons Brendan and Blake, and younger son Bradley. On the center, we have main attraction, Butch and his gorgeous wife Blossom who are holding golden goblets filled with red wine, more specifically Pinot Noir. Finally, on the right-hand side, we have Bradley’s twin sister Belle, sororal twins Brenda and Belinda, and youngest daughter Abigail. Let’s talk about their costumes starting off with the parents. 26-year-old Butch Green is donning a costume which is the result of Kratos the Ghost of Sparta bearing a lovechild with a vampiress, as one can tell. Essentially, Butch is dressed as a cross between an ancient warlord and Count Dracula. Quite the fascinating combination. His 25-year-old wife Blossom Utonium-Green is donning a costume which is reminiscent of Blood Countess Carmilla from Vampire Hunter D meets Lady Oscar and Marie Antoinette from The Rose of Versailles. As opposed to Butch’s savage warlord, Blossom fits the bill as an aristocratic lady who is also a vampiress, though a lot more subtle about it. Let’s also not forget that since this gorgeous couple is in their twenties they are free to drink some of that fine Pinot Noir in golden goblets, just like how the nobles drink from these chalices in the olden times. The children’s costumes were a lot of fun to do. One should not neglect the fact that Blossom, who is really savvy in terms of science and health, is the one who ensures that their makeup and everything they put on their skin, in general, are hypoallergenic, fragrance-free, all-natural, and will not do damage to their skin whatsoever. All right, the kids get the floor. 5 going on 6-year-old eldest daughter Azalea Bernadette Green dons The Wicked Witch of the West’s costume. Seeing that she is a fan of both the 1939 film The Wizard of Oz and the musical Wicked, as Elphaba is her most favorite character, she saw it fit to put on the witch’s hat and makeup with glee. 3-year-old Brendan James Green is Quasimodo from Victor Hugo’s The Hunchback of Notre Dame. For someone who is currently a toddler, he really finds both the original Victor Hugo novel and the Disney film of the same name to be very intriguing. It also helps that he has a certain attachment to the Disney Quasimodo, as he considers him one of his role models, as opposed to the version from the original novel, who is still very complex in his eyes. Brendan’s fraternal twin brother Blake Francis Green is Banquo’s ghost from William Shakespeare’s Macbeth. It is no surprise that both boys love novels and plays that deal with dark and complex themes with courtesy of Butch and Blossom who have given the novels they have read to them while they were still babies. Blake’s austere and silent presence as Banquo’s ghost is definitely a fine contrast to Brendan’s more impassioned attitude as Quasimodo. 2-year-old Bradley Oliver Green is The Wolfman or in this case The Wolf Boy. Bradley is the type of boy who loves to show off his wild side and he has a lot of fun with it. Of course, he is also a huge animal lover, which is also why he dons this particular costume. His twin sister Belle Marguerite Green is Amneris from Giuseppe Verdi’s Aida. Here we have Belle embodying Aida’s rival for Radames’s love, the Egyptian princess who is well-known for her power and fierceness as well as being the Pharaoh’s most beloved daughter Amneris. Her glare will make you wish that you held your tongue. Butch and Blossom took their kids to watch Aida at the Townsville Opera House and it was at that moment that Belle was totally fixated with the mezzo-soprano who sang Amneris, especially in the judgment scene. 1-year-old Brenda Katelyn Green is The Queen of the Night from Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s The Magic Flute known in German as Die Zauberflöte. When Blossom had quality time with Brenda and Belinda, they would always listen to an album of a coloratura soprano singing operas in different languages. The ones that stood out to her darling youngest twin daughters were The Queen’s two arias “O Zittre Nicht Mein Lieber Sohn” and “Der Hölle Rache” and Lucia’s “Regnava Nel Silenzio” and The Mad Scene. Brenda really feels attached to the Queen of the Night, as this character wears a lot of gorgeous costumes depending on the production. Brenda’s twin sister Belinda Kiara Green is Lucia Ashton from Donizetti’s Lucia di Lammermoor. As opposed to Brenda, Belinda is completely fascinated with Donizetti’s doomed and tragic young heroine. Lucia’s Mad Scene is one moment in this famous Donizetti opera that stood out to her the most, as this heroine felt betrayed by the true love of her life, thus being in a marriage she did not want to be in, and goes insane because of these circumstances all because of a feud going on between her family and the family of her lover. 8-month-old Abigail Barbara Green is dressed…
“Oh, this is the night, it’s a beautiful night And we call it bella notte Look at the skies, they have stars in their eyes On this lovely bella notte Side by side with your loved one You’ll find enchantment here The night will weave its magic spell When the one you love is near For this is the night And the heavens are right On this lovely bella notte This is the night It’s a beautiful night And we call it bella notte Look at the skies They have stars in their eyes On this lovely bella notte Side by side with your loved one You’ll find enchantment here The night will weave its magic spell When the one you love is near For this is the night And the heavens are right On this lovely bella notte” – Bella Notte, Originally sung by George Givot as the voice of Tony the Chef, Bill Thompson as the voice of Joe the Assistant, and the Disney Chorus, Composed by Oliver Wallace, Lyrics by Peggy Lee and Sonny Burke, From the Disney animated film Lady and The Tramp released on June 22, 1955 This piece of Robike fanart, which is an art trade I have accomplished with my dear friend KatyGorl, is dedicated to the amazing Pongpang aka the-pongpang-art who celebrated her birthday a week ago and Ika-chan aka LoveEmerald, Cinnamon aka Cinnamon-Swirls, and Miluda aka blameshiori who are celebrating their birthdays today. So, Pongpang, Ika, Cinnamon, Miluda, I wish you lovely ladies joy, prosperity, beauty, strength, glory, and love in everything you do as artists and as people. Keep on making wonderful pieces of work and stay awesome, blessed, and full of abundance. This is also dedicated to all of the wonderful Mike x Robin or Robike shippers out there. So, I hope you all enjoy this lovely piece of Robike fanart. Here we have Mike Believe and his darling wife Robin Snyder-Believe having a lovely date in a cozy Italian restaurant where they are a dinner consisting of spaghetti topped with a giant meatball seasoned and cooked to perfection, loaded with marinara sauce, and sprinkled with basil leaf bits and bits of parmesan cheese that has already been melted. Plus, this adorable normie couple from Townsville even have a Lady and The Tramp moment where they are even re-enacting the classic spaghetti kiss scene, which in turn is my inspiration for this little date scenario between Mike and Robin. Speaking of Disney’s Lady and the Tramp, it should come off as no surprise that Bella Notte has been one of my most favorite songs ever since I was a toddler. So, when combining my favorite song from one of my favorite animated Disney movies from the 1950’s with one of my most beloved Powerpuff Girls OTPs of all time, I thought to myself this is absolute genius. This classic song, as well as the iconic scene between The Tramp and Lady which emits so much nostalgia, is the perfect match for the scenario Mike and Robin are in. Without further ado, I present you not just one, not just two, but four versions of Bella Notte. The first is the original version sung by George Givot, Bill Thompson, and the Disney Chorus, the second one is the 1955 Italian version, the third is the pop version with Carlos Ponce and Joy Enriquez, and the fourth one is the Glee version sung by Chord Overstreet as Sam Evans, Kevin McHale as Artie Abrams, Harry Shum Jr. as Mike Chang, and the late Mark Salling as Noah Puckerman. I hope you also enjoy listening to these four selections as you gaze into the loveliness that is Mike and Robin on a date, and tell me in the comments which version you prefer the most. The original version sung by George Givot, Bill Thompson, and the Disney Chorus The 1955 Italian version The 2001 pop version with Carlos Ponce and Joy Enriquez The 2011 Glee version with Chord Overstreet, Kevin McHale, Harry Shum Jr., and Mark Salling I hope you all enjoyed this piece of Robike goodness and I will see you all in the next submission.

One really has to give it up for Bunnitch or Mitch x Bunny just for being Townsville’s and Citysville’s interesting, fun, and really dynamic power couple. When one combines Mitch’s brand of roughness and toughness with Bunny’s lovability, amicability, and kindness, it is certainly a match made in Heaven.

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.
