“Penso che un sogno così non ritorni mai più, mi dipingevo le mani e la faccia di blu, poi d’improvviso venivo dal vento rapito, e incominciavo a volare nel cielo infinito Volare oh oh cantare oh oh oh, nel blu dipinto di blu, felice di stare lassù, e volavo volavo felice più in alto del sole ed ancora più sù, mentre il mondo pian piano spariva laggiù una musica dolce suonava soltanto per me. Volare oh oh cantare oh oh oh nel blu dipinto di blu felice di stare lassù. Volare oh oh” -Volare, Composed, Written, and Sung by Domenico Modugno, Co-Written by Franco Migliacci, Released by February 1, 1958 English Translation courtesy of LyricsTranslate: “I think that a dream like this won’t come back anymore. I was painting my hands and my face blue. Then suddenly I was being enraptured by the wind. And I was beginning to fly in the endless sky. To fly, oh, oh! To sing, oh, oh, oh, oh! In the blueness, painted in blue. Happy, to be up there. And I was flying, was flying happily, higher than the sun and still higher, while the world slowly, slowly was disappearing far away down there, a sweet music was playing just for me. To fly, oh, oh! To sing, oh, oh, oh, oh! In the blueness, painted in blue. Happy, to be up there. To fly oh oh” This piece of SnakBrat fanart, which is part of KatyGorl’s Claim a PPG Pairing Month back in September, is dedicated to Blueelephant7 and Larisa aka glittermuffins who celebrated their birthdays a couple of days ago. So, I hope you guys had an amazing, awesome, thrilling, and splendid birthday. I wish you a lot of love, joy, and prosperity in everything you do as artists and as people. Ah, Snake x Brat or SnakBrat. This is a pairing I came up with seeing that I am not really a fan of pairing Sanford D. “Snake” Ingleberry up with Bubbles and prefer for him to end up with Brat of The Powerpunk Girls, but that is just my personal tastes. I just think these two are really adorable together and I can see it being the classic love-hate relationship which will eventually mellow out when these two drop their defenses and start being cuddly and comfortable with each other. My love song for these two, which is, in turn, one of my favorite Italian pop songs, “Volare” composed and originally sung by Domenico Modugno is certainly a nice tune for these lovebirds. I grew up with this song when I was an eleven-year-old boy and I first heard Russell Watson singing this and I enjoyed his rendition. So, I hope you also enjoy listening to Mr. Watson’s rendition of this song. I hope you all enjoyed taking a gander at this piece of SnakBrat picture and I will see you in the next submission.

“In Napoli where love is king When boy meets girl here’s what they say When the moon hits your eye like a big pizza pie That’s amore When the world seems to shine like you’ve had too much wine That’s amore Bells will ring ting-a-ling-a-ling, ting-a-ling-a-ling And you’ll sing “Vita bella” Hearts will play tippy-tippy-tay, tippy-tippy-tay Like a gay tarantella When the stars make you drool just like a pasta e fasule That’s amore When you dance down the street with a cloud at your feet You’re in love When you walk in a dream but you know you’re not dreaming, signore Scusa mi, but you see, back in old Napoli That’s amore When the moon hits your eye like a big pizza pie That’s amore When the world seems to shine like you’ve had too much wine That’s amore Bells will ring ting-a-ling-a-ling, ting-a-ling-a-ling And you’ll sing “Vita bella” Hearts will play tippy-tippy-tay, tippy-tippy-tay Like a gay tarantella When the stars make you drool just like a pasta e fasule That’s amore When you dance down the street with a cloud at your feet You’re in love When you walk in a dream but you know you’re not dreaming, signore Scusa mi, but you see, back in old Napoli That’s amore That’s amore” -That’s Amore, Dean Martin (1917-1995), Composed by Harry Warren (1893-1981), Lyrics by Jack Brooks (1912-1971), Recorded on August 13, 1953, at Capitol Studios, Hollywood, USA, and released on November 7, 1953. This piece of Aceserk fanart, which is a part of my dear friend’s Kaitlyn’s aka KatyGorl’s Claim a PPG Pairing Month, is dedicated to Patrick aka toongrowner who celebrated his birthday three days ago. So, Patrick, I hope you had a very blessed, awesome, grand, exciting, and happy birthday. I wish you well in everything you do as an artist and may your life be full of prosperity and abundance. Wie wir auf deutsch sagen, ich hoffe du hattest einen sehr gesegneten, tollen, grandiosen, aufgeregten und herzlichen Geburtstag. Ich wünsche dir alles Gute in allem, dass du als Künstler tust, und ich hoffe, dass dein Leben viel Wohlstand und Fülle hat. Alles Liebe, Freude und Schönheit. Come se dice in italiano, tutto il mio amore, felicitá e beltá nel tua vita come artista ed uomo molto talentuoso. Ace x Berserk, in my opinion, is a pairing I think could work. Think about it. Both of them are leaders of their respective gangs and there could be something about them that makes them all the more intriguing as a couple. When one combines Ace of The Gangreen Gang’s suave, devil-may-care nature to Berserk of The Powerpunk Girl’s hot-headed personality, then you have a pairing that can develop from being a love-hate relationship to something that is really exciting. Moreover, I think not a lot of people ship this and let’s not forget that in my Team Xtreme headcanon, Ace and Berserk are married. By the way, I also did a bit of research on Italian-American slang, so in case you didn’t know what the terms “Maronna mia!” and “Colghioni” mean, the respectively mean, “My God!” and “part of the male anatomy”. Here’s the link to slang. https://americanitalian.net/ Since I am fully aware of Ace’s Italian American heritage, I figure that the Dean Martin classic “That’s Amore” would be a nice fit for this sweet and spicy couple. I invite you all to listen to the two versions of this song that I love, the first one being the original Dean Martin version and the second one being the Russell Watson version. Let me know which one of these versions you love and I hope you enjoy, as you gaze at the cuteness that is Aceserk. Dean Martin “That’s Amore” Russell Watson “That’s Amore” I hope you all enjoyed this and I will see you in the next submission. Ace D.
