LUCIA Verranno a te sull’aura I miei sospiri ardenti, Udrai nel mar che mormora L’eco de’ miei lamenti… Pensando ch’io di gemiti Mi pasco, e di dolor. Spargi un’amara lagrima Su questo pegno allor. EDGARDO Verranno a te sull’aura I miei sospiri ardenti, Udrai nel mar che mormora L’eco de’ miei lamenti… Pensando ch’io di gemiti Mi pasco, e di dolor. Spargi un’amara lagrima Su questo pegno allor. LUCIA Il tuo scritto sempre viva la memoria in me terrà. EDGARDO Cara! Sì, sì, Lucia. LUCIA, EDGARDO Verranno a te sull’aura I miei sospiri ardenti, Udrai nel mar che mormora L’eco de’ miei lamenti… Pensando ch’io di gemiti Mi pasco, e di dolor. Spargi un’amara lagrima Su questo pegno allor. EDGARDO Io parto… LUCIA Addio… EDGARDO Rammentati! Ne stringe il cielo!… EDGARDO, LUCIA Addio… – Verranno a te sull’aure from Gaetano Donizetti’s Lucia di Lammermoor, Libretto by Salvatore Cammarano, First performance on September 26, 1835 at the Teatro di San Carlo, Naples, Italy English Translation: LUCIA On the breeze will come to you my ardent sighs, you will hear in the murmuring sea the echo of my laments. When you think of me living on tears and grief, then shed a bitter tear on this ring. EDGARDO On the breeze will come to you my ardent sighs, you will hear in the murmuring sea the echo of my laments. When you think of me living on tears and grief, then shed a bitter tear on this ring. LUCIA Your letter will forever live on in my memory. EDGARDO Dearest! Yes, yes, Lucia. LUCIA, EDGARDO On the breeze will come to you my ardent sighs, you will hear in the murmuring sea the echo of my laments. When you think of me living on tears and grief, then shed a bitter tear on this ring. EDGARDO I shall leave. LUCIA Farewell. EDGARDO Remember, Heaven has joined us! EDGARDO, LUCIA Farewell! This piece of Prinack fan art is dedicated to Brzonan, Chess Albaneze aka squonkhunter, Caroline aka angry-toon-link, DShadou, The-Daffodil, and Caroline aka Ghalise who celebrated their birthdays several days ago, Selena aka PrincessCallyie who celebrated her birthday three days ago, Wesley aka TheDutchAnon who celebrated his birthday yesterday, and PokeySmokey who is celebrating his birthday today. So, I wish you so much love, prosperity, joy, happiness, abundance, greatness, and beauty on your very special days and in your lives as artists and as people. Moreover, I would love to dedicate this piece of Prinack fan art to my father who is celebrating his birthday today. So, Dad, happy birthday to you and thank you for being such a loving, compassionate father to me and my younger siblings. Finally, I would love to dedicate this to all of the Prinack shippers. So, sit back, relax, and soak in that Prinack goodness. Here we have 31-year-old Jack Spicer as Edgardo Ravenswood and 25 going on 26-year-old Princess Morbucks as Lucia Ashton the tragic star-crossed lovers from one of my most favorite Bel Canto operas of all time Gaetano Donizetti’s “Lucia di Lammermoor”, which was based on the historical novel “The Bride of Lammermoor” written by Sir Walter Scott. What makes these two fit their respective roles to a T is that they are of extremely affluent families who own a heck load of property and they are young souls in love, even though they are far from being teenagers. Sure, Jack is far from being the most heroic gentleman out there and Princess is not one to constantly go cuckoo, but Jack is sufficiently dashing with a high-flying light lyric tenor voice and Princess is fresh and lovely as a daisy in an external manner and I imagine her belting out high notes like what any lyric coloratura soprano would do. Being someone who loves Donizetti’s Lucia di Lammermoor with a passion, I figured that the love duet “Verranno a te” would suit both Jack and Princess’s lovey-dovey nature so well. This duet is even more exciting when the high notes are also put to great use. Whether it is Lucia hitting the high E-flat and Edgardo hitting the high C or Lucia hitting the high C and Edgardo hitting the high E-flat or both Edgardo and Lucia hitting the high E-flat, there is always something so exhilarating when these two do it. For that, I will gladly display my six favorite Edgardos and Lucias singing this duet with the high notes and those are Carlo Bergonzi and Beverly Sills, Alfredo Kraus and Mariella Devia, Marcelo Alvarez and Stefania Bonfadelli, Paolo Fanale and Desiree Rancatore, Carlos Barcenas and Jessica Pratt, and Francesco Demuro and Nadine Sierra. Bergonzi, Kraus, Alvarez, and Fanale hit the High C. Barcenas and Demuro hit the High E-Flat. All of the aforementioned sopranos from Sills to Sierra hit the High E-Flat. So, do enjoy these selections, as you gaze into this piece of Prinack fan art.

“There’s a wind that blows It’s calling your name And it speaks to me again and again Telling me, go to her Don’t let her go Hold her close to you Then you will know The meaning of love Exactly what is all about The feeling that I get when I can’t forget Everything that makes me want to That’s how deep it goes All I really know is that I love you so And if it’s the only thing I ever do Then I know it’s true That I should love someone like you Someone who believes in me Makes my voice to sing with a heart so free As sure as I can be For me, if one dream can come true Then I will love someone like you In your eyes I see A life that could mean so much more With you next to me And if time is cruel Well I won’t try to hide I could walk through fire With you by my side Cause after all if we want forever There’s a hand to hold through the sad and cold When nobody wants to know you So never let it go And you’ll never be alone Knowing that I love you so And if it’s the only thing I ever do Then I know it’s true That I should love someone like you Someone who believes in me Makes my voice to sing with a heart so free As sure as I can be For me, if one dream can come true Then I will love someone like you So never let it go And you’ll never be alone Knowing that I love you so And if it’s the only thing, the only thing I ever do Then I know it’s true That I should love someone like you Someone who believes in me Makes my voice to sing with a heart so free As sure as I can be For me, if one dream can come true Then I will love someone like you Then I should love someone like you” -Someone Like You, Andrea Bocelli, From the album Cieli di Toscana released on October 16, 2001 This piece of JulOmi fanart, which is part of Kaitlyn’s aka KatyGorl’s Claim a PPG Pairing Month, is dedicated to HaleysComett and Joshua Orro aka JoshuaOrro who celebrated their birthdays a few days ago. So, Haley, Josh, I hope you guys had amazing, awesome, thrilling, and terrific birthdays. I wish you prosperity, love, and joy in everything you do as artists. Since Prinack or Jack Spicer x Princess Morbucks has become such an item thanks to the ever-fabulous Selena aka PrincessCallyie, I figured why not pair up Omi from Xiaolin Showdown with Julie Smith from The Powerpuff Girls? In my mind, I always thought they would make such an adorable couple, what with Omi’s impulsiveness and simple way of life meshing up so well with Julie’s outer cuteness and occasional inner cattiness. I have the results are more than satisfactory and JulOmi is definitely a crossover OTP that is much a keeper as Prinack. So, here we have the 25-year-old Omi being so cuddly with the 24-year-old Julie Smith. And yes, in my headcanon, these two are happily married. I did mention that while Princess and Julie were in China, Princess fell for Jack while Julie Smith had a major crush on Omi. This crush eventually blossomed into a full-fledged romance between the Xiaolin monk of water with the doll-like, adorable youngest Smith daughter. And voila, a very cute couple for the ages. I figured that to heighten the cuddliness and love present between Omi and Julie, I thought that the Andrea Bocelli-composed song “Someone Like You” would be a most ideal fit for this couple. I hope you enjoy listening to this love song as much as you enjoy gazing at the sweetness and cuteness that is Omi x Julie Smith. I hope you all enjoyed this and I will see you all in the next submission. Omi from Xiaolin Showdown belongs to Christy Hui and Kids’ WB.

“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.

“Wenn du es wüßtest, Was träumen heißt von brennenden Küssen, Von wandern und ruhen mit der Geliebten, Aug in Auge, Und kosend und plaudernd, Wenn du es wüßtest, Du neigtest dein Herz! Wenn du es wüßtest, Was bangen heißt in einsamen Nächten, Umschauert vom Sturm, da niemand tröstet Milden Mundes die kampfmüde Seele, Wenn du es wüßtest, Du kämest zu mir. Wenn du es wüßtest, Was leben heißt, umhaucht von der Gottheit weltschaffendem Atem, Zu schweben empor, lichtgetragen, Zu seligen Höhn, Wenn du es wüßtest, wenn du es wüßtest, Du lebtest mit mir.” – Cäcilie Opus 27 Number 2 composed by Richard Strauss (1864-1949), Lyrics and Poem by Heinrich Hart (1855-1906), Composed on September 9, 1894. English Translation: “If you but knew, sweet, what ‘tis to dream of fond, burning kisses, of wand’ring and resting with the beloved one; gazing fondly caressing and chatting, could I but tell you, your heart would assent. If you but knew, sweet, the anguish of waking thro’ nights long and lonely and rocked by the storm when no-one is near to soothe and comfort the strife-weary spirit. Could I but tell you, you’d come, sweet, to me. If you but knew, sweet, what living is, in the creative breath of God, Lord, and Maker to hover, upborne on dove-like pinions to regions of light, if you but knew it, could I but tell you, you’d dwell, sweet, with me.” This Prinack submission, as part of BrickercupMasterX3’s Prinack month, is dedicated to Bluebear aka ITBluebeadTI who celebrated her birthday yesterday. So, Bluebear, you had an amazing and blessed birthday and I wish you abundance and prosperity in your life as an artist. Wie wir auf deutsch sagen, ich hoffe, dass du einen tollen und gesegneten Geburtstag hattest, und ich wünsche dir Vielfalt und Wohlstand in deinem Leben als Künstlerin. I also want to dedicate this to all of the wonderful Prinack shippers out there. So, I hope you all enjoy. Here we have Jack and Princess having a tender, sweet, and blissful moment with each other. As you can tell, there are also some German words placed in this drawing which goes hand in hand with the chosen Richard Strauss Lied I have for them. On Jack’s side, these two words are translated as My Princess and My Mistress. On Princess’s side, the words are translated as My Lord, My Comfort, and My Beloved. When listening to different interpretations of this sweeping Richard Strauss Lied, I have to say that five stood out to me the most Diana Damrau, Jessye Norman, Christa Ludwig, Fritz Wunderlich, and Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau. So, I hope you also enjoy listening to these selections, as you imagine Jack and Princess having their moment of romance, sweetness, and love for each other. Diana Damrau Jessye Norman Christa Ludwig Fritz Wunderlich Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau I would also love to know which of these five singers do you enjoy the most when it comes to Richard Strauss’s Cäcilie. It would be a great pleasure to hear which singer catches your fancy. So until then, as we say in German, bis bald und alles Liebe.

“Cet air qui m’obsède jour et nuit Cet air n’est pas né d’aujourd’hui Il vient d’aussi loin que je viens Traîné par cent mille musiciens Un jour cet air me rendra folle Cent fois j’ai voulu dire pourquoi Mais il m’a coupé la parole Il parle toujours avant moi Et sa voix couvre ma voix Padam, padam, padam Il arrive en courant derrière moi Padam, padam, padam Il me fait le coup du souviens-toi Padam, padam, padam C’est un air qui me montre du doigt Et je traîne après moi comme une drôle d’erreur Cet air qui sait tout par cœur Il dit: “Rappelle-toi tes amours Rappelle-toi puisque c’est ton tour ‘Y a pas d’raison pour qu’tu n’pleures pas Avec tes souvenirs sur les bras” Et moi je revois ceux qui restent Mes vingt ans font battre tambour Je vois s’entrebattre des gestes Toute la comédie des amours Sur cet air qui va toujours Padam, padam, padam Des “je t’aime” de quatorze-juillet Padam, padam, padam Des “toujours” qu’on achète au rabais Padam, padam, padam Des “veux-tu” en voilà par paquets Et tout ça pour tomber juste au coin d’la rue Sur l’air qui m’a reconnue Écoutez le chahut qu’il me fait Comme si tout mon passé défilait Faut garder du chagrin pour après J’en ai tout un solfège sur cet air qui bat Qui bat comme un cœur de bois” -Édith Piaf, composed by Norbert Glanzberg, lyrics by Henri Contet, and released in 1951 English Translation: “This tune that haunts me day and night This tune isn’t born of today It comes from as far back as I do Dragged by a hundred thousand musicians One day this tune will drive me mad A hundred times I’ve wanted to say why But it interrupted me It doesn’t let me speak And its voice overwhelms mine Padam… Padam… Padam… It follows, running behind me Padam… Padam… Padam… It tricks me into remembering you Padam… Padam… Padam… It’s a tune, which like an accusing finger Haunts me like a weird mistake This tune that knows all by heart It says: “Remember your loves Remember since it’s your turn There’s no reason for you not to cry With your memories held close… “ And me, I look back at those that remain My twenty years of tapping that beat I see between the beats The whole comedy of those loves Accompanied by this tune that always goes… Padam… Padam… Padam… An “I love you’s” on the fourteenth of July Padam… Padam… Padam… The “forevers” bought at a discount Padam… Padam… Padam… The “Do you want to’s” here by the bundle And all this to bump into the tune That remembers me at the street corner Listen to the uproar that it causes in me As if all my past were on parade One must save some sorrow for later I have a solfege for this tune that beats… Beats like my wooden heart” This piece of Prinack fanart, as part of my beloved friend’s BrickercupMasterX3’s Prinack month, is dedicated to Ciara aka LadyMarigold who celebrated her birthday four days ago, Jim Kilpatrick aka Koku-chan who celebrated his birthday yesterday, and SheilaMBrinson and Kay aka transformers3roxCB who are celebrating their birthdays today. So, Ciara, Jim, Sheila, Kay, I wish you a lot of abundance, love, joy, and happiness in everything you do as artists. Comme se dit en francais, je souhaite a vous beaucoup d’abondance, d’amour, de joie et de bonheur dans tout vous faites comme artistes. Jack and Princess have hit the dance floor once again. This time they are in a ballroom waltzing with such precision to the amazing Édith Piaf’s chanson Padam, Padam, which is about a young woman who has a music-related memory about a lover she had when she was twenty years old. Obviously, these two are rather entranced with the music. So, for your listening pleasure, here is La Grande Madame Édith Piaf singing the passionate and electrifying Padam, Padam. I hope you all enjoyed this and as we say in French, vous prenez plaisir. Merci beaucoup et a tout a l’heure. Jack Spicer from Xiaolin Showdown belongs to Christy Hui and Kids’ WB.

“Sometime’s I’m right Sometime’s I’m wrong But he doesn’t care He’ll String along He loves me so That funny honey of mine Sometime’s I’m down Sometime’s I’m up But he follows ’round Like some droopy-eyed pup He loves me so That sunny honey of mine He ain’t no sheik That’s no great physique Lord knows, he ain’t got the smarts Oh, but look at that soul I tell you, the whole Is a whole lot greater than The sum of his parts And if you knew him like me I know you’d agree What if the world Slandered my name? Why he’d be right there Taking the blame He loves me so And it all suits me fine That funny, sunny, honey Hubby of mine He loves me so That funny honey of mine” – Roxie Hart from Chicago, Composed by John Kander, Lyrics by Fred Ebb, Book by Fred Ebb and Bob Fosse, First Performance on June 3, 1975, at New York’s 46th Street Theater This piece of Prinack fanart, as part of BrickercupMasterX3’s Prinack month, is dedicated to Eka Ju Wong aka LollyKittyPaws, kou aka kouriiko, Jon aka fanfics4ever, my very good Manic Expression comrade t-kun aka AwkardOddOne, Sam Flemming aka SouthJerseySam, and Nina aka Wickfield who celebrated their birthdays from a few days ago to yesterday. So, I hope you wonderful, splendid, phenomenal, and fantastic artists had a grand birthday. Keep on being as brilliant, innovative, and down-to-earth as you all are. I bless you all and more power to you and to everything you do. I would also love to dedicate this to all of the fine Prinack shippers out there. With that said, sit back, relax, enjoy, and soak in that Prinack goodness. Here, we have our anti-villainous/anti-heroic couple Jack Spicer and his darling wife Princess Morbucks-Spicer having a serene, sweet, and sentimental moment with each other. It also helps that the song choice, “Funny Honey” from the Broadway musical Chicago, is a wonderful fit for someone like Princess to dedicate to her significant other Jack. And who better than to perform this ballad than the fine Renée Zellweger, the Roxie Hart I grew up with ever since I was between my tween and teen years and somehow ended up becoming a hardcore Chicago fan when I was all but fourteen years old. So, let’s dig into this song. Maybe you can even imagine Princess singing this to Jack in such a sexy, sensual manner akin to what Madame Zellweger accomplished. I hope you all enjoyed this and I will see you in the next submission. Jack Spicer from Xiaolin Showdown belongs to Christy Hui and Kids’ WB.

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.
