(The sun shines on The City of Townsville.) Narrator: The City of Townsville. February 11, 2019. Team Xtreme Headquarters. It’s a brand new day for our beloved Baron of Berserk who is known for his brute strength, animalistic fierceness, and his interesting brand of being a pretty cool dude. The one and the only 26 going on 27-year-old Butch Green. For this guy, there is nothing more worthwhile than starting the day by keeping his well-shaped muscles toned and sculpted that could rival any Greek god or bodybuilder. (Butch is doing bench presses while wearing green shorts and is topless.) Butch: 991…992…993…994…995…996…997…998…999…1000! All right! (Butch puts the barbell down and he sits erect.) Butch: Yeah, that’s the stuff. (Butch flexes his biceps and grins.) Butch: GRRRRR…..Butch, you are totally in great shape this morning. (High-pitched giggling is heard from the hallway and Butch puts down his mighty arms.) Butch: Could that be my darling wife, Bubbles. (Bubbles enters and she is hiding something behind her back.) Bubbles: You guessed right, my dearest Butchie. (Bubbles leans towards Butch and gives him a kiss with her lipstick mark being imprinted on his cheek.) Bubbles: I have a surprise for you, my great stud of a husband. Butch: What could it be, my sweet wifey-poo. (Bubbles reveals the surprise, as it is a big heart-shaped letter.) Bubbles: Tada! Happy Eight Years of being happily married, Butchie. The kids and I made this especially for you. (Bubbles gives the letter to Butch and he reads it.) Bubbles (voiceover): Happy Eighth Anniversary, Butchie! Much love, your darling wife, Bubbles. Brandon, Buddy, Brea, Betty, Blithe, Bibi, Blaine, and Blair (voiceover): And your awesome kids. Brandon (voiceover): Brandon… Buddy (voiceover): Buddy… Brea (voiceover): Brea… Betty (voiceover): Betty… Blithe (voiceover): Blithe… Bibi (voiceover): Bibi… Blaine (voiceover): Blaine… Blair (voiceover): And Blair. (Butch finishes reading the letter.) Butch: Bubs, baby girl, this is definitely the best wedding anniversary gift ever. Bubbles: I’m so happy you loved it, Butchie. For our anniversary, I prepared breakfast for us and the kids. So, let’s get going to the dining hall. Butch: All right, Bubs. I’ll put on my best shirt then we’ll eat. Bubbles: All right, Butchie. (Bubbles embraces Butch and they had to the dining hall.) Narrator: Awww…This is certainly quite a lovely start to an equally lovely day. So once again, the day is saved. Thanks to Butch and Bubbles. And their offspring Brandon, Buddy, Brea, Betty, Blithe, Bibi, Blaine, and Blair. This piece of Butchubbles fan art is dedicated to Kairah aka Raikaaa, Graceann aka AngelePuquiz, FEN-OSHI, wtfisabluecornmoon, PourSomeSugarOnMeee, Ariel aka PurfectPrincessGirl, DontbeModest, nax aka propimol, and Key aka xKeyToMyHeartx who celebrated their birthdays some days ago. So, I hope you guys had awesome birthdays and equally lovely Valentine’s Days. I wish you a lot of love, joy, happiness, prosperity, abundance, and strength in your lives as artists and as people. This is also dedicated to all of the Butchubbles shippers out there. So, sit back, relax, and soak in that Butchubbles goodness. I know I said this in my final Blossoomer month submission, but I will reiterate anyway. If I did not have Blossutch as my endgame OTP pairing for Butch and Boomubbles as my endgame OTP for Bubbles, Butchubbles would have taken that title with Blossoomer following suit and vice versa. As you can tell, this is a Team Xtreme AU where Butch and Bubbles are a happily married couple and they ended up having not only the sextuplets in the forms of Brandon, Buddy, Brea, Betty, Blithe, and Bibi aka KatyGorl’s and Misse-the-cat’s fan kids but younger twin sons in the forms of Blaine and Blair much like the number of kids Boomer and Blossom have. Butchubbles has always and continues to fascinate me to this very day. I compare this couple to other opposites attract couples like Seiji and Midori from Midori Days and Arashi and Miwako from Paradise Kiss with the classic case of Butch being the strong bad boy with the foul mouth and Bubbles being the sweet ingenue with an edge who has a thing for said bad boy. Sure, it is a trope as old as time, but I cannot help but find this particular pairing so charming and rather fun. In Butch’s and Bubbles’ case, it could start off as playful infatuation on Bubbles’ side and hiding his emotions on Butch’s side and it would eventually grow into feeling really comfortable with each other to the point where Butch can see Bubbles for the outgoing, forgiving, compassionate person that she is and Bubbles could see that side of Butch that is so protective, determined, and unorthodoxly sympathetic, in spite of being really rough around the edges. Truly a yin and yang couple incarnate. To conclude, if there is anyone I would love to thank for making ship Butchubbles more and more, it has to all of you wonderful shippers. You guys know who you are and I am completely grateful for all of you who managed to make me love Butchubbles as an OTP that stands right beside the likes of Brickercup, Blossutch, Blossoomer, Boomubbles, Bunnitch, and Robike. I cannot get enough of the flexibility and the interesting dynamics Butch and Bubbles have with his roughness, toughness, ferocity, and muscle thus being an awesome compliment to her flexibility, lovability, willingness to be open, and sense of being a placid, loving young lady. Therefore, it would be a great pleasure to see Butch and Bubbles live life to the fullest together given how well they could play off of each other that makes them all the more charming and adorable. Well, that is all for now. I hope you all enjoyed this piece of Butchubbles work and I will see you all in the next submission. Take care, everybody.

(It is dawn, as the sun rises.) Narrator: The City of Townsville, February 6, 2019. Team Xtreme Headquarters. It looks it’s a very special day for our favorite Dumb Muscle, Brainy Beauty couple, 26 going on 27-year-old Boomer Green and his beloved wife, 25 going on 26-year-old Blossom Utonium-Green. Looks like hubby is also up early in the morning. (Boomer is in a cobalt blue tank top and blue swimming shorts preparing breakfast consisting of fried eggs, two slices of pumpernickel bread, salmon fillet, and tall glass of grapefruit juice. He puts the food on the tray along with a letter and he carries it to their bedroom, where Blossom is still sleeping. Boomer gives her a kiss on her forehead and heads to the heated swimming pool taking off his tank top and does some laps in the pool.) (A few minutes later, Blossom wakes up from her slumber.) Blossom (yawning): Oh my, breakfast in bed for me. (Blossom gradually eats up her fried eggs, salmon fillet, and two slices pumpernickel bread. After that, she takes a sip of her glass of grapefruit juice when she notices the letter. She picks it up, as she reads it.) Blossom: To my beloved wife, Blossom. (Blossom turns the letter over from its backside and reads the contents.) Boomer (voiceover): Happy Anniversary, Bloss. It’s hard to believe it has been eight years since we were married and had Bloom, BJ, Beau, Brian, Becky, Belladonna, and, eventually, Basil and Bramley as our children. I just want to thank you so much for being in my life not only as my Team Xtreme teammate but also as my wife. You are the most wonderful woman in the whole world. Here’s to eight more excellent years. With much love, your darling husband, Boomer. (As Blossom reads the letter, tears of joy flow down from her eyes. She finishes her grapefruit juice, as she proceeds to look for Boomer.) (Blossom, still holding the letter, spots Boomer in the heated swimming pool. Boomer then gets out of the pool to dry himself.) Boomer: Good morning, my beloved, darling wife. (Blossom rushes to him and gives him a long hug.) Blossom: Oh, dearest Boomer. Thank you so much for the pleasant wedding anniversary gift. I cannot begin to tell you how blessed I am to have you in my life as my husband. Boomer: The feeling is mutual Blossom. I have always loved everything about you. And I’m not lying when I say that you are the most wonderful woman in the whole world. Blossom: I know that, Boomer. (Boomer and Blossom kiss passionately. Little do they know, Brick and Buttercup, Butch and Bubbles, Mitch and Bunny, and Mike and Robin enter the heated swimming pool area. While they kiss, Brick, Buttercup, Butch, Bubbles, Mitch, Bunny, Mike, and Robin proceed to cheer for them.) Brick, Buttercup, Butch, Bubbles, Mitch, Bunny, Mike, and Robin: HAPPY EIGHTH ANNIVERSARY, BOOMER AND BLOSSOM! WOOHOO!!! (They applaud, as Boomer and Blossom are taken aback with surprise.) Boomer and Blossom: Wow. You guys. Brick: Boom, bro, we have all gathered here today to tell you how proud we are of you to be Bloss’s lawfully-wedded hubby. Butch: You and Blossom are an excellent item and that’s coming from the heart. Mitch: We hope you two continue to rock in everything you do. Mike: We also hope that you two are full of abundant blessings. Buttercup: And Bloss, Leader Girl, we may have had our issues in the past, but I am always gonna support you and Boom Boom as a couple. Bubbles: Yeah, I even plan to throw you guys an afternoon party with all of our kids. Bunny: You know what, Blossom? You and Boomer really are meant to be together and I am proud to call myself little sister-in-law to Boom. Robin: Today is your day. What do you wanna do before noontime? (Boomer and Blossom look at each other.) Boomer: Well, honey, it’s your call. Blossom: I say we take a nice morning dip in the pool. Brick, Buttercup, Butch, Bubbles, Mitch, Bunny, Mike, and Robin: AWESOME! (Brick, Butch, Mitch, Mike, Buttercup, Bubbles, Bunny, and Robin remove their shirts and are in their swimsuits. Blossom follows suit.) (Brick and Buttercup, Butch and Bubbles, Boomer and Blossom, Mitch and Bunny, and Mike and Robin jump in the pool together as couples, as their morning is filled to the brim with laughter and joy.) Narrator: What a great day to start off the festivities of Boomer’s and Blossom’s eighth wedding anniversary. So, once again, the day is saved and the celebration is going to begin. Thanks to Team Xtreme and the Phenomenal Four. This piece of Blossoomer fan art, which is part of BrickercupMasterX3’s annual Blossoomer month, is dedicated QWERTYman1965 who is celebrating his birthday today. So, I wish you a most pleasant, wonderful, and grand birthday and so much prosperity, beauty, strength, and abundance in your life as an artist and as a person. This is also dedicated to all of the wonderful Blossoomer shippers out there. So, sit back, relax, and soak in that Blossoomer goodness. I know some of you are going to be sick and tired of me saying this, but I will say it anyway. If I did not have Blossutch as my endgame OTP ship for Blossom and Boomubbles as my endgame OTP ship for Boomer, Blossoomer would have taken that title of ultimate endgame OTP for both Boomer and Blossom. No hesitation. No holding back. No second thoughts. Those sentiments also apply to Butch and Bubbles as a couple, as Butchubbles would have also ended up as my ultimate endgame OTP for the both of them. Moreover, as you can tell, this is an alternate universe or AU retelling of my Team Xtreme headcanon, where Blossom is happily married to Boomer and Bubbles is happily married to Butch. Don’t worry Butchubbles shippers, their time will come when their AU scenario will be out in the limelight. Obviously,…
This piece of Blossoomer and Blossoomer fan children fan art, which is part of BrickercupMasterX3’s annual Blossoomer month, is dedicated to Zuzanna aka niziolek and Alex aka SportyArtist who are celebrating their birthdays today. So, I wish you a lot of love, joy, happiness, fortune, beauty, strength, abundance, and prosperity on your very special day as well as in your lives as artists and as people. This is also dedicated to all of the Blossoomer shippers and, as you can tell, this is in honor of the Chinese New Year, more specifically with 2019 being the Year of the Pig. So, Happy Chinese New Year or Kung Hei Fat Choi to you all, sit back, relax, and soak in that Blossoomer goodness. Here we have 26 going on 27-year-old Boomer, his 25 going on 26-year-old life partner Blossom, and their beloved 7 going on 8-year-old sextuplets Bloom, Brittney Jane aka BJ, Beau, Brian, Becky, and Bella Donna aka Belladonna celebrating their Chinese New Year in style. Boomer is dressed as a traditional Chinese martial artist, as he gets to expose his glorious upper body for his beloved Blossom and his children to see. Blossom is dressed as a beautiful Chinese noblewoman and, therefore, looks as elegant as ever. Bloom and BJ are also dressed as Chinese noblewomen. Beau and Brian are dressed akin to Chinese noblemen of the court. Finally, Becky and Belladonna are dressed as Shaolin Kung Fu fighter girls. This should come off as no surprise that Blossom’s affiliation with the Chinese language, more specifically Cantonese, has been ingrained with her since childhood and, therefore, loves exploring Eastern culture and tradition. Hence, every Chinese New Year, she and Boomer would be dressed to the nines in their attires with their children following suit. It also helps that Bloom, BJ, Beau, Brian, Becky, and Belladonna are very diligent when it comes to studying both Cantonese and Mandarin as well as Chinese culture, history, lifestyle, and tradition in general. I hope you all enjoyed this piece of Blossoomer fan art and from me, my family, and my friends to yours, have a most prosperous, awesome, and blessed Chinese New Year. Take care, everybody.

‘Tis a classic tale of a gentleman in cobalt blue and a lady in hot pink Boomer is dashing, strong, loyal, noble, and kind Blossom is articulate, intelligent, and would rather swim than sink He has lightning powers which can leave mortal eyes blind She has glacial powers which can guarantee a great chill He is the most innocent of his brotherly bond of three She is the leader of her trio of sisters Together he and she bear no ill Their hearts are joyful, blissful, and free And their love is like a glorious array of fragrant, rose-scented twisters. The love and beauty between Boomer and Blossom is pervasive and true Neither tempests nor violators nor fate herself can destroy their bond They are there for each other in times of joy so bright and sadness so blue Their faith can go from the deepest ocean to the shallowest pond Lightning and ice dance in this entrancing waltz Cobalt blue and hot pink envelop each other in such endless ecstasy Strength, sympathy, diplomacy, and beauty are entwined as one chain ‘Tis a lovely relationship without any faults They can cherish each other beyond one’s fantasy At the end of the day, only sincerity and kindness shall, in their purest hearts, remain. Boomer can protect Blossom from too much strife Blossom can aid Boomer with his self-esteem Through rain and sun, snow and spring, they give each other life For together they will always be a most fabulous team Should Blossom’s ego consume her, thus, Boomer will bring her down to earth Should Boomer feel alone and toil even with his prodigious strength, Blossom will comfort him In this mortal world and the next, their synergy will prevail Because this fleet athlete and this commander and leader can see each others’ worth Truly appreciating each other from head to heart to limb And neither one of them will fail. For it is what we, the fine shippers, call this gorgeous pair Blossoomer We award this couple with art, stories, and creative dedication Some might say Boomer and Blossom as a couple could cure one from any tumor And one might proclaim this with such exaltation We give thanks to Blossoomer for showing us all That true love is there between a simple, strong cavalier and a savvy, smart maiden This couple is purity, love, grace, empathy, and compassion in the flesh Our hearts, minds, souls, and beings enthrall At the sincerity of this couple whose hearts are with grace and beauty thoroughly laden And, for that, they will stay strong and fight for each other with positivity that is ever fresh. – An Ode to Blossoomer, a lyric poem written by me (Antoni Matteo Garcia), February 5, 2019 That, my dear friends, was my attempt at making a well-structured ode to one of my most favorite RRB/PPG pairings of all time, Boomer x Blossom or Blossoomer, which this piece of work along with the Blossoomer fan art accompanying this text is part of BrickercupMasterX3’s Blossoomer month. I would also love to dedicate this to Josh Strider aka Phantomstrider who celebrated his birthday two days ago and Miss Lazy aka Aria-Pari who celebrated her birthday yesterday. So, I hope you guys had awesome birthdays, I wish you so much love and joy in your lives as artists and people, and I also hope you enjoyed my piece of pro-Boomer x Blossom poetry as well as the fan art accompanying it. This also goes for the other Blossoomer shippers. I hope you guys also enjoyed this in its entirety and I hope this managed to make you feel inspired as I was to produce something like this. All of my observation of rhyming, rhythm, and the technical poetry facets aside, I can never get enough of Blossoomer whatsoever. The love, passion, and dedication I have to this particular color-clash RuffPuff couple is not only strong but also something that makes me even more driven to support this pairing as my OTP alongside the other RuffPuff OTPs I have namely Brickercup, Blossutch, Butchubbles, and Boomubbles. More importantly, I could not have done this particular ode if it were not for you, dear Blossoomer shippers and fans. You all know who you are and I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for giving me so much inspiration, courage, and passion to produce not only this piece of fan art but also this particular ode. I may not be an expert poet, but at least the thought of showing my utmost appreciation for Blossoomer counts so much. I hope you all enjoyed this piece of work and see you all in the next submission. Take care. Boomer and Blossom from The Powerpuff Girls belong to Craig McCracken and Cartoon Network.
DANILO Lippen schweigen, ‘s flüstern Geigen: hab mich lieb! All die Schritte sagen:Bitte, hab mich lieb! Jeder Druck der Hände deutlich mir’s beschrieb. Er sagt klar, ‘s ist wahr, ‘s ist wahr, du hast mich lieb! HANNA Bei jedem Walzerschritt tanzt auch die Seele mit, da hüpft das Herzchen klein, es klopft und pocht: Sei mein! Sei mein! Und der Mund, er spricht kein Wort, doch tönt es fort und immerfort: Ich hab’ dich ja so lieb, ich hab’ dich lieb! HANNA und DANILO Jeder Druck der Hände deutlich mir’s beschrieb. Er sagt klar, ‘s ist wahr, ‘s ist wahr, du hast mich lieb! – Lippen Schweigen from Franz Léhar’s Die Lustige Witwe, Libretto by Viktor Léon and Leo Stein, Based on Henri Meilhac’s L’attaché d’ambassade, First Performance on December 30, 1905 in Vienna, Austria. English Translation: DANILO Lips are silent, violins whisper: Love me! Every step says: please love me! Every hand-clasp shows it clearly. Now I know, it’s so, it’s so, you love me! HANNA At each step of the waltz, my soul joins in the dance, my eager heart leaps, knocks, and pounds: be mine, be mine! And my lips say no word, yet still it echoes on and on: I love you, oh, so much, I love you! HANNA AND DANILO Every hand-clasp shows it clearly, now I know it’s so, it’s so, you love me! This piece of Blossoomer fan art, which is part of BrickercupMasterX3’s annual Blossoomer month, is dedicated to Annie Pham aka Zero-Kiba and craycrayevie who celebrated their birthdays three days ago, Eva aka Shanks-kun who celebrated her birthday two days ago, dopperugengaa whose birthday was celebrated yesterday, and PockyBloo whose birthday is being celebrated today. So, I hope you guys have such magnificent, grand, and awesome celebrations and I wish you so much love, joy, happiness, positive vibes, and greatness in your lives as artists and as people. I would also love to dedicate this to all of the Blossoomer fans and shippers out there. So, sit back, relax, and soak in the Blossoomer goodness. Here we have 25-year-old Blossom as the merry widow herself, Hanna Glawari, and her darling 26-year-old life partner Boomer as Count Danilo Danilowitsch from one of Franz Léhar’s most well-known operettas of all time, “Die Lustige Witwe” known in English as, of course, “The Merry Widow”, which, in turn, is one of my most favorite German operettas ever. Blossom certainly embodies Hanna’s brand of grace, nobility, beauty, and stature to a T, while Boomer embodies Danilo’s genteel, noble, and gentlemanly grace so effectively that their overall chemistry is glorious. Moreover, I do not have to explain to you any further why I love Blossoomer so much. Sufficed to say, Blossoomer is gorgeousness and loveliness incarnate. Lippen Schweigen from Léhar’s “Die Lustige Witwe” is a duet I grew up with ever since I was a sixteen-year-old boy in my second year of high school, even though I practiced this song as a solo number. I love the sweeping melody, the graceful tones, and the blending of voices for any tenor or baritone who sings Danilo and any soprano who sings Hanna. Hence, for your listening pleasure, I present to you my three favorite renditions of this lovely duet sung by these following pairs: Rudolf Schock and Melitta Muszely, Agostino Lazzari and Virginia Zeani (in Italian), Nicolai Gedda and Anneliese Rothenberger, Francisco Araiza and Regina Klepper, and Jonas Kaufmann and Diana Damrau. I hope you enjoy these selections, as you gaze into this fine piece of Blossoomer fan art.

CHRISTINE: I should have known that you’d be here I should have known it all along This whole arrangement bears your stamp You’re in each measure of that song. How dare you try and claim me now? How dare you come invade my life? PHANTOM: Oh, Christine. My Christine. In that time when the world thought me dead My Christine, on that night just before you were wed Ah, Christine. You came and found where I hid Don’t you deny that you did, that long ago night CHRISTINE: That night… PHANTOM: Once there was a night, beneath a moonless sky Too dark to see a thing, too dark to even try CHRISTINE: I stole to your side to tell you I must go I couldn’t see your face, but sensed you even so And I touched you, PHANTOM: And I felt you BOTH: And I heard those ravishing refrains CHRISTINE: The music of the past PHANTOM: The singing in your veins CHRISTINE: And I held you PHANTOM: And I touched you CHRISTINE: And embraced you PHANTOM: And I felt you BOTH: And with every breath and every sigh CHRISTINE: I felt no longer scared PHANTOM: I felt no longer shy BOTH: At last our feelings bared beneath a moonless sky CHRISTINE: And blind in the dark, as soul gazed into soul I looked into your heart and saw you pure and whole PHANTOM: Cloaked under the night with nothing to suppress A woman and a man No more, and yet no less And I kissed you CHRISTINE: And caressed you BOTH: And the world around us fell away We said things in the dark we never dared to say PHANTOM: And I caught you CHRISTINE: And I kissed you PHANTOM: And I took you CHRISTINE: And caressed you BOTH: With a need to urgent to deny And nothing mattered then Except for you and I Again and then again beneath a moonless sky PHANTOM: And when it was done Before the sun could rise Ashamed of what I was, afraid to see your eyes I stood while you slept and whispered a goodbye And slipped into the dark beneath a moonless sky CHRISTINE: And I loved you, yes I loved you I’d have followed anywhere you led I woke to swear my love and found you gone instead PHANTOM: And I loved you and I left you CHRISTINE: How I loved you! PHANTOM: And I had to, both of us knew why CHRISTINE: We both knew why BOTH: And yet I won’t regret from now until I die The night I can’t forget Beneath a moonless sky… PHANTOM: And now… CHRISTINE: How can you talk of now? For us, there is no now – Beneath a Moonless Sky from Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Love Never Dies, Text by Andrew Lloyd Webber, Ben Elton, Frederick Forsyth, and Glenn Slater, Lyrics by Glenn Slater, Based on Frederick Forsyth’s “The Phantom of Manhattan”, Gaston Leroux’s “The Phantom of the Opera”, and Andrew Lloyd Webber’s, Richard Stilgoe’s, and Charles Hart’s “The Phantom of the Opera”, First Performance on March 9, 2010 at the Adelphi Theatre in London’s West End, England, Great Britain This piece of Butchubbles fan art, which is my final submission for BrickercupMasterX3’s Butchubbles Month last January, is dedicated to Maggie Mason aka mason382, Emma aka KokoroWorlds, Martina Koljensic aka MartinaHermioneGrang, JordanDatTurtle13, Eva aka AmazonPrincess5000, Pinkycandypie, Danni Lynn McDonald aka evangeline40003, Starry aka Pastel—Star, and Victoria aka ViciViv who celebrated their birthdays a couple of days ago. So, I hope you all had such magnificent, grand, fabulous and phenomenal birthdays. I wish you a lot of love, joy, happiness, beauty, prosperity, strength, perseverance, and abundance in your lives as artists and as people. This is also dedicated to all of the wonderful Butchubbles shippers out there. So, sit back, relax, and soak in that Butchubbles goodness. Well, this was inevitable. This is the final time we get to see Butch as our beloved Phantom aka Erik and Bubbles as the lovely Countess Christine Daaé de Chagny and this is the song and scene that we are going out on. I know some people find the duet between The Phantom and Christine, “Beneath a Moonless Sky”, unintentionally hilarious because of the lyrics unsubtly alluding to the Phantom and Christine making love to each other, but if one puts this duet in the right hands of the singers, this can actually be quite an emotional thrill ride. Yes, it is melodramatic. Yes, it does skewer with the canon. However, the melody is still haunting and quite palpable to be reckoned with. For your listening enjoyment, I present to you three interpretations of this duet from three of my favorite Phantoms, Ben Lewis, Ramin Karimloo, and Drew Sarich, and three of my favorite Christines, Anna O’Byrne, Sierra Boggess, and Milica Jovanovic. I hope you enjoy listening to these selections, as you gaze upon this piece of Butchubbles fan art.

This InuAya Family Tree fan art is dedicated to Sage aka deerteeeth and Britta aka BlueShiranui who celebrated their birthdays two days ago, Varvara aka gricort who celebrated her birthday about two weeks ago, and Phanly Jewel aka Endyran who is celebrating her birthday yesterday. So, I hope you all had such magnificent birthday celebrations and I wish you all a lot of love, joy, happiness, beauty, strength, hope, triumph, prosperity, and abundance in your lives as artists and as people. Wie wir auf deutsch sagen, ich hoffe ihr habt wunderbare Geburtstagfeier und ich wünsche euch allen viel Liebe, Freude, Glück, Schönheit, Hoffnung, Triumph, Wohlstand und Reichtum in euren Leben als Künstler und als Menshen. This is also dedicated to all of the InuAya or Inuyasha x Ayame shippers out there. So, sit back, relax, and soak in that InuAya loveliness, awesomeness, and goodness. I will say this once and I will say this again. No matter anyone says, I will never give up my most beloved Inuyasha OTP of all time Inuyasha x Ayame or InuAya, as my love and unquenchable passion for this couple knows no bounds whatsoever. Inuyasha and Ayame even have their progeny to prove how strong of a family they really are, what with Inuyasha being the muscular, handsome, strong, courageous, tough patriarch and Ayame being the brave, gorgeous, determined, awesome matriarch of this wonderful family. As much as I would have loved to put in their basic data for each InuAya family member, I decided to write it here in the description. Keep in mind that I am jotting their ages as of this year, if they ended up celebrating their respective birthdays, instead of going the over-accurate route of saying that he is 35 going on 36 and she is 32 going on 33. With that said, let’s get cracking, ladies and gentlemen. Inuyasha the Strong, Sturdy Patriarch with Muscles of Steel and Ayame the Courageous, Determined, Brave Matriarch with Flawless Combat Prowess Inuyasha: A Strong Father and Ayame’s Loyal, Handsome Husband Name: Inuyasha Age: 36 Birthday: April 1 Ayame: A Brave Mother and Inuyasha’s Faithful, Beautiful Wife Name: Ayame Age: 33 Birthday: February 18 Inuyasha and Ayame have been blissfully married for eighteen years and their relationship as husband and wife continues to flourish ever so beautifully. Moreover, Inuyasha’s muscles, toughness, and super strength are an amazing complement with Ayame’s agility, speed, and grace, thus making them a rather sexy couple all the way through. Not only do they continue to look as amazing as they are together, but they also stay be each others’ side through thick and thin showing abundant amounts of unconditional love, passion, and loyalty. Their combat prowess has even been passed down to their children and everything they do as parents to them is nothing short of a blessing. As parents, Inuyasha always loves to make sure that their children stay active, strong, and physically fit as possible and as a father, he has his own brand of disciplining, especially when he uses his skills as a fighter and his muscles to set his children straight. Ayame makes sure that their children stay as humble, gracious, and upright as they are in triumph and in loss and as a mother, she can be strict, especially when one of her children does something wrong, and nonetheless, she gives really great advice to make them grow not only as warriors but also as individuals. Inuyasha’s and Ayame’s Strong, Tough, and Awesome Offspring Masataka and Masaya: The First Eldest Muscle Twin Sons Names: Masataka and Masaya Ages: 18 Birthday: February 24 Masataka and Masaya bear their father’s super strength, usage of muscles, and overall fighting spirit, thus making them the first set of muscle twins. With that said power comes a great responsibility they must uphold as the eldest brothers, as their younger siblings look up to them so much. Masataka may be cool, calm, and collected and Masaya may be gentle, responsible, and altruistic, but if one were to be so brazen as to upset them, they will unleash absolute Hell on the perpetrator with their super strength, iron claws, and unrelenting fighting spirit with them turning into full yokai. Masataka and Masaya have an extremely close bond as twin brothers and they always know how to solve their problems in a rather civil manner. At times, they even love to compete with each other, as they love to lift weights, wrestle, and practice various martial arts. When all is said and done, Masataka’s and Masaya’s loyalty to each other, their siblings, and their parents cannot be questioned. Kenta and Keita: The Second Eldest Muscle Twin Sons Names: Kenta and Keita Ages: 17 Birthday: March 10 Kenta and Keita are the second muscle twins of Inuyasha’s and Ayame’s fine family. As opposed to Masataka and Masaya who are calmer in demeanor, Kenta is the rowdier one who exudes some macho pride while Keita is rowdy but a little bit more level-headed. Kenta and Keita have an amazingly close brotherly bond with Masataka and Masaya to the point where all four of them are best friends who stick with each other through thick and thin. This even gets to the point where Inuyasha proudly states that Masataka, Masaya, Kenta, and Keita are his most favorite sons, especially considering all of the posedowns, wrestling matches complete with full nelsons, sleeper holds, bearhugs, and Boston crabs, weightlifting to ensure that their muscles are in great shape, roaring matches, martial arts matches, boxing matches, and general competitiveness father and sons constantly engage in. Kenta and Keita not only love to compete with each other, but they also love to compete with Masataka and Masaya in a lot of physical activities. Moreover, Masataka’s, Masaya’s, Kenta’s, and Keita’s strong fraternal bond can give the likes of Castor and Pollux a run for their money because they work with each other so effectively, thus combing muscles, combat prowess, and a certain wild animal grace to the…
This piece of Inuyasha x Ayame or InuAya and fan kids fan art is dedicated to Mi-Na-Tsuki, DankMemeBirb360, and Managodess who celebrated their birthdays two days ago. So, I hope you guys had amazing, awesome, wonderful, and grand birthday celebrations. I wish you a lot of love, joy, abundance, and prosperity in your lives as artists and as people. Wie wir auf deutsch sagen, ich hoffe ihr habt tolle, hervorragende, wunderbare und grandiose Geburtstagsfeier. Ich wünsche euch viel Liebe, Glück, Reichtum und Wohlstand in euren Leben als Künstler und als Menschen. This also dedicated to all of the InuAya shippers out there. So, sit back, relax, and soak in that Inuyasha x Ayame goodness. Here we have, from left to right, 35 going on 36-year-old Inuyasha, 32 going on 33-year-old Ayame, and their two pairs of eldest twin sons. The first eldest twin sons are 17 going on 18-year-olds Masataka and Masaya. The second eldest twins are, of course, our beloved 16 going on 17-year-olds Kenta and Keita. Sure, I would have loved to add in the other younger siblings namely Kaito, Momoko, and Maya, thus making Inuyasha and Ayame have a grand total of seven children, but there was not a lot of space, so I will definitely add them, as I make the InuAya family tree in another submission. We already got to know Kenta and Keita, the second eldest muscle twins, so, let us be acquainted with Inuyasha’s and Ayame’s first eldest muscle twin sons, Masataka and Masaya. Inuyasha and Ayame always knew they were meant for each other, even before they ended up married when he was eighteen and she was fifteen. As they consummated their feelings for each other one night, Ayame discovered that she was pregnant with their pups. Her grandfather saw that Inuyasha was a lot more fit to be Ayame’s husband than Kouga or any other warrior, especially when he saved the Northern Yoro Tribe from a vicious, hulking horned demon by using his brute strength and claws. So, she and Inuyasha ended up being married complete with a great feast and nine months later, Masataka and Masaya were born. Masataka and Masaya were born with a mixture of their parents’ eye colors and with purple jagged stripes on their cheeks much like their father when he turns into a full yokai. Masataka and Masaya are the split images of their father with a few hints of their mother’s determined, focused nature. Much like their younger brothers Kenta and Keita, they have a responsibility to uphold as heirs to the Northern Yoro Tribe. Masataka and Masaya have inherited their father’s brute strength, relentlessly fierce fighting prowess, toughness, and willingness to be stronger warriors ever. Masataka, Masaya, Kenta, and Keita would always train their bodies, minds, and spirits in order for them to fight alongside their father, mother, and younger siblings. Every sunrise, Inuyasha would enter Masataka’s and Masaya’s room and greet them with a bellowing roar while beating his chests. As the eldest twins wake up, Inuyasha would flex his muscles, thus having them being greeted by his strong, battle-hardened glory. Masataka and Masaya would approach their father and flex their muscles back at him. A posedown and, eventually, a wrestling match would ensue with the eldest twins giving Inuyasha a great bear hug and vice versa. After that, Inuyasha, Masataka, and Masaya would go to Kenta’s and Keita’s room and greet them with the usual ritual of flexing their gloriously well-toned muscles, having a wrestling/boxing match before and after breakfast, and the culmination of them having a laugh. In terms of distinguishing their personalities, Masataka is the calm, cool, collected brother while Masaya is a bit on the rowdy side but still has enough gentility and sense of responsibility to make him all the more valiant. However, one must be careful never to push their buttons, as Masataka and Masaya can get easily angry, thus turning them into full-fledged yokai with flashing, fierce red eyes, using their brute, musclebound strength, steel-like claws, and mighty fists to crush their enemies, and wrapping everything up with a victory roar that could give any lion or tiger a run for his money. Masataka and Masaya love to go swimming, take quiet walks in the forests, and train by weightlifting, wrestling, boxing, and doing a lot of martial arts that involve punching, kicking, and using their claws. In terms of individual activities, Masataka always loves to gather berries and edible flowers while Masaya loves to hunt for deer and boar. Masataka, Masaya, Kenta, and Keita always look up to Inuyasha as their role model and Inuyasha considers all four of them to be his most favorite sons. Moreover, Masataka’s and Masaya’s brotherly relationship with Kenta and Keita is really akin to all four of them being the best of friends because of their wonderfully strong bond as brothers. Due to their strong personalities, they do tend to argue and have the usual competitions of muscles and strength. One has to leave it to Inuyasha who enters with a huge roar gives Masataka, Masaya, Kenta, and Keita bear hugs, full nelsons, and/or sleeper holds and Ayame who elicits a stern, commanding presence while cracking her knuckles and snarling for them to stop fighting. At least with Masataka and Masaya, they are the calmer and more rational of these set of twins, as they know how to help Kenta and Keita out in sticky situations. Kaito, Momoko, and Maya are even attached to their older brothers with Kaito enjoying the company of Masataka and Masaya and looking up to them as his role models, as they are not only protective of him but also gracious and playful with him, and Momoko and Maya having a lot of fun with Kenta and Keita in terms of their dashing, charming, funny personalities with the occasional showing off of their muscles and strength to amuse them. Overall, Masataka, Masaya, Kenta, and Keita really do care for each other, their younger siblings,…
This piece of InuAya fan art is dedicated to Edward aka AsmodisArt who celebrated his birthday last week. So, Edward, I hope you had a wonderful and blessed birthday celebration. I wish you a lot of love, joy, beauty, strength, hope, prosperity, and abundance in everything you do as an artist and as a person. Wie wir auf deutsch sagen, ich hoffe du hast einen wunderbaren und gesegneten Geburtstag. Ich wünsche dir viel Liebe, Freude, Schönheit, Kraft, Hoffnung, Wohlstand, und Reichtum in allen, dass du als Künstler und Mensch tust. This is also dedicated to all of the InuAya shippers out there. So, sit back, relax, and soak in that Inuyasha x Ayame goodness and sexiness. I cannot begin to tell you how long it has been since I last drew my most beloved Inuyasha OTP of all time. I swear it felt like forever. However, after so many months of not having any Inuyasha x Ayame action in my gallery, here they are in their fiercest, toughest, and strongest glory like the warriors that they are. One can tell that they certainly look fabulous in their mid-30’s, what with Inuyasha being 35 going on 36 years old and Ayame being 32 going on 33 years old. I hope you all enjoyed this piece of Inuyasha x Ayame fan art and I will see you in the next submission. Inuyasha and Ayame from Inuyasha belong to Rumiko Takahashi and Sunrise.
DON JUAN (PHANTOM) You have come here in pursuit of your deepest urge, in pursuit of that wish, which till now has been silent, silent . . . I have brought you, that our passions may fuse and merge – in your mind you’ve already succumbed to me dropped all defenses completely succumbed to me – now you are here with me: no second thoughts, you’ve decided, decided . . . Past the point of no return – no backward glances: our games of make-believe are at an end . . . Past all thought of “if” or “when” – no use resisting: abandon thought, and let the dream descend . . . What raging fire shall flood the soul? What rich desire unlocks its door? What sweet seduction lies before us . . .? Past the point of no return, the final threshold – what warm, unspoken secrets will we learn? Beyond the point of no return . . . AMINTA (CHRISTINE) You have brought me to that moment where words run dry, to that moment where speech disappears into silence, silence . . . I have come here, hardly knowing the reason why . . . In my mind, I’ve already imagined our bodies entwining defenseless and silent – and now I am here with you: no second thoughts, I’ve decided, decided . . . Past the point of no return – no going back now: our passion-play has now, at last, begun . . . Past all thought of right or wrong – one final question: how long should we two wait, before we’re one . . .? When will the blood begin to race the sleeping bud burst into bloom? When will the flames, at last, consume us . . .? BOTH Past the point of no return the final threshold – the bridge is crossed, so stand and watch it burn . . . We’ve passed the point of no return . . . – The Point of No Return of “Don Juan Triumphant” from Andrew Lloyd Webber’s The Phantom of the Opera, Text by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Richard Stilgoe, Lyrics by Charles Hart and Richard Stilgoe, Based on Gaston Leroux’s “The Phantom of the Opera”, First performance on October 9, 1986 at Her Majesty’s Theatre, London, England, Great Britain This piece of Butchubbles fan art, which is part of BrickercupMasterX3’s Butchubbles Month, is dedicated to VishKeks, Cherin Bishop-Thorpe aka Rinnii, ujikintoki aka ujikin, Jonathan Edward Dolnier aka Pokejedservo, and Andre Partridge aka nakuuro who celebrated their birthdays a few days ago and KingofTheDragons1 and CyrizScarlet who are celebrating their birthdays today. So, I wish you so much love, prosperity, abundance, beauty, strength, and greatness in your lives as artists and as people and may you have such marvelous birthday celebrations. This is also dedicated to all of the Butchubbles shippers out there, so, do sit back, relax, and soak in that lovely Butchubbles goodness. Butch as The Phantom of the Opera and Bubbles as Christine Daaé have struck again. This time they are in one of my other favorite musical numbers of all time “The Point of No Return”. Sure, for some people, it is rather problematic, since Christine does not easily recognize that the gentleman who is playing Don Juan is not Ubaldo Piangi but the Phantom himself. Regardless, it is a steamy life-or-death duet that knows how to raise the stakes and it is glorious in its execution when done right. With Bubbles as Christine playing Aminta, I took a lot of inspiration from the original costume design for the stage but I also added that red flower Emmy Rossum’s Christine in the film version had for good measure. I am fully aware that the Phantom should have been fully cloaked, but I decided to go with giving Butch’s Phantom a fancy hat, making the mouth cloaked with a piece of black cloth, and make him be fully donned in black. Overall, I am rather pleased with the results. Since I love this duet so much, I decided to compile five of my favorite Phantoms Michael Crawford, Colm Wilkinson, Alexander Goebel, Saulo Vasconcelos, and Ramin Karimloo and five of my favorite Christines Sarah Brightman, Rebecca Caine, Luiza Nistler, Irasema Terrazas, and Sierra Boggess. Sit back and enjoy these renditions as well, as you gaze into this sensual Butchubbles moment.
