This was a short film my colleagues, a couple of teachers, and I made during our school’s project day. The overall result came out so wonderfully thanks to our overall collaborative efforts. I could not have accomplished the editing without the help of my colleagues and teachers. Enjoy the film and as we say in German, viel Spaß beim Zuschauen.
Well, look what I got in the mail just a couple of days ago. My very dear friend, DeviantArt follower, and fan of my artwork, Daniel D. Roberts aka JekyllAndHydeChannel, has sent me another set of lovely gifts. I know these were intended to be open on Valentine’s Day, but because of my academic priorities and my insane schedule both on- and offline, I saw it fit to open them up and I was really blessed. Daniel gave me a really cute bronze shark with his initials and a Dash from Pixar’s “The Incredibles” tattoo, which was a wonderful gesture from his side. So, Daniel, thanks so much for not only these lovely presents but also for your undying support, unconditional kindness, and passion when it comes to your favorite cartoons. Continue to be as great as you are and I also thank you for being one of my 99 DeviantArt watchers. Don’t forget to also stay tuned tomorrow for my final Butchubbles fan art submission, which is part of my sister from another mother’s, BrickercupMasterX3’s, annual Butchubbles Month. Blessed be and I will see you on the flipside.

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.
CHRISTINE: Who knows when love begins Who knows what makes it start One day it’s simply there Alive inside your heart It slips into your thoughts It infiltrates your soul It takes you by surprise Then seizes full control Try to deny it And try to protest But love won’t let you go Once you’ve been possessed Love never dies Love never falters Once it has spoken Love is yours Love never fades Love never alters Hearts may get broken Love endures Hearts may get broken Love endures And soon as you submit Surrender flesh and bone That love takes on a life Much bigger than your own It uses you at whim And drives you to despair And forces you to feel More joy than you can bear Love gives you pleasure And love brings you pain And yet when both are gone Love will still remain Once it has spoken Love is yours Love never dies Love never alters Hearts may get broken Love endures Hearts may get broken Love never dies Love will continue Love keeps on beating When you’re gone Love never dies Once it is in you Love may be fleeting Love lives on – Love Never Dies 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 and Boomubbles fan art, which is part of BrickercupMasterX3’s Butchubbles Month, is dedicated to oOAquaDreamOo and Allyszarts who are celebrating their birthdays today. So, I wish you a most pleasant, awesome, beautiful, splendid, and grand birthday and I wish you a lot of love, joy, abundance, and prosperity in everything you do as people and as artists. Wie man auf deutsch sagt, ich wünsche euch einen fröhlichen, schönen, hervorragenden und grandiosen Geburtstag und ich wünsche euch viel Liebe, Freude, Reichtum und Wohlstand in allen, dass ihr als Künstler und Menschen tut. This is also dedicated to all of the hardcore Butchubbles and Boomubbles shippers out there. So, sit back, relax, and soak in the Butchubbles and Boomubbles goodness. I mentioned in my first Butchubbles Month submission that I would squeeze the 26-year-old Boomer in as Raoul de Chagny to make this epic love triangle between Butch’s Phantom, Bubbles’ Christine, and, of course, his Raoul come to fruition. For my money, Boomer definitely fits Raoul to a T. He could easily pass as the childhood friend and designated hero who has very strong feelings for the designated heroine. Moreover, as opposed to Butch as The Phantom, Boomer as Raoul is sympathetic, noble, genteel in his own special way, and loving coupled with the fact that Boomer bears a graceful, youthful, mellifluous, melodious light lyric tenor voice to contrast perfectly with Butch’s rough, wide-ranging dramatic tenor. In terms of the setting, the peacock setting where Christine sings her big solo “Love Never Dies” was quite the challenge, which is also the same thing I can say about her gown, as I had to get the vital details down to a T. For what I accomplished, I think it went well, even though it does not surpass the original. I even have to say that I love differing Butch’s and Boomer’s bow ties to show that Butch’s Phantom is the anti-villain and Boomer’s Raoul is the hero. I am going to go on a mini-diatribe about Andrew Lloyd Webber’s “Love Never Dies”. I am not a fan of the plot to this rather unnecessary sequel to “The Phantom of the Opera”. I do also comprehend that there were some minute elements which were based from Frederick Forsyth’s “The Phantom of Manhattan” and that I can never overlook. When cutting down to the bone, “Love Never Dies” basically feels like melodrama for the sake of melodrama just because the plot demands The Phantom and Christine to get back together through some form of contrivance, thus neglecting the fact that Raoul’s love for Christine is genuine, natural, and pure while the Phantom’s is based on obsession, lust, and an unhinging need to have Christine all to himself because nobody else understands him but her. In essence, “Love Never Dies” negates certain elements that make Raoul and Christine function as a couple and, therefore, mangles a lot of characters especially poor Meg Giry, who happens to have the shortest end of the stick. Diatribe aside, I do enjoy some of the songs and I have yet to watch the full musical live if only to hear some really great singing and overall performing. Now that my mini-diatribe is out of the way, I would also like to address that the titular song’s tune is actually “The Heart is Slow to Learn”, which was supposed to be added in to the intended sequel to the 1986 musical yet ended up being performed by Dame Kiri Te Kanawa during Mr. Lloyd Webber’s 50th birthday. The second time this tune was used was for the show tune Our Kind of Love from “The Beautiful Game” also composed by Andrew Lloyd Webber. “Love Never Dies” marks the third time this tune was used. Yes, it is rather lazy to rehash the same tune for different musicals, but I will give it the benefit of the doubt. Sure, anyway one slices it, the incarnations of these songs are rather emotionally manipulative. However, there is something that is sweeping and breathtaking about the melody that I cannot help but be hooked. So, for your listening pleasure, I present to you three of my favorite versions of this show tune sung by Anna O’Byrne, Sierra Boggess, and Rachel Anne Moore obviously all as Christine.

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.

CHRISTINE: In sleep, he sang to me In dreams, he came That voice which calls to me And speaks my name And do I dream again For now, I find The Phantom of the Opera is there Inside my mind PHANTOM: Sing once again with me Our strange duet My power over you Grows stronger yet And though you turn from me To glance behind The Phantom of the Opera is there Inside your mind CHRISTINE: Those who have seen your face draw back in fear I am the mask you wear PHANTOM: It’s me they hear BOTH: My/your spirit and your/my voice In one combined The Phantom of the Opera is there Inside your/my mind OFFSTAGE: He’s there the Phantom of the Opera! PHANTOM: In all your fantasies You always knew That man and mystery CHRISTINE: Were both in you BOTH: And in this labyrinth Where night is blind The Phantom of the Opera is there Inside your/my mind CHRISTINE: He’s there, the Phantom of the Opera! (Vocalizing) PHANTOM: Sing, my angel of music! CHRISTINE: (Vocalizing higher) PHANTOM: Sing for me! CHRISTINE: (Vocalizing higher) PHANTOM: Sing my angel of music! CHRISTINE: (Sings higher) PHANTOM: SING FOR ME! CHRISTINE: (Unleashes a high note.) – The Phantom of the Opera 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 twilaa, paster-demon, Maou aka meimeix, kanoii-chan, Were-Wolf-Hell, X-Luminescence, RainbowTashie, tsitra-tneced, HarukoxTaota, and my dearest friend and fellow color-clash shipper and fan, xahCHUx, who celebrated their birthdays some days ago. So, I hope you guys had an awesome, beautiful, great, prosperous, and grand birthday. I wish you so much abundance, strength, and greatness in everything you do 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. Here we have 24-year-old Bubbles as Christine Daaé and her darling life partner 26-year-old Butch as the titular Phantom, also known as Erik in the original Leroux novel. I swear that these two fit their characters so superbly it is frighteningly fascinating. Bubbles, given the fact that her powers are sound-based and can sing like a lark if her and her sisters’ performance of “Love Makes the World Go Round” from “Mime for a Change” is evidence enough, is a great fit for Christine’s brand of ingenue purity, youth, and greatly prodigious skill as a singer. One can imagine what her rendition of “Think of Me” and “Wishing You Were Somehow Here Again” would sound like at this age, especially that High E6 after “The Phantom of the Opera”, given that Bubbles has a coloratura soprano voice and technique in my Team Xtreme headcanon. On the other hand, Butch is an incredible fit for the Phantom’s dark charm and menace and one can imagine that he would have a knack at embodying all of these dark, brooding, ambiguously dangerous roles. Moreover, I could imagine Butch having a rough, wide-ranging, yet passionate dramatic tenor voice to combine wonderfully with Bubbles’ lyric coloratura soprano voice. Together Butch and Bubbles certainly have a lot of amazing chemistry as The Phantom and Christine. It should come off as no surprise that Andrew Lloyd Webber’s “The Phantom of the Opera” has a very special place in my heart. I remember enjoying Joel Schumacher’s 2004 film adaptation as a young teenager, but there were some elements of the film that have not held up too well, in spite of some decent performances from the likes of Patrick Wilson as Raoul and Emmy Rossum as Christine. Sure, Gerard Butler does imbue the Phantom with some dark charm, but I really would have loved to have Antonio Banderas’s versatility as a performer to have embodied the Phantom for everything that he is. I even saw this particular musical in New York with maternal grandmother back in 2008 and it was enjoyable. With that said, I present to you five renditions of this musical show tune from five of my favorite Phantoms Michael Crawford, Colm Wilkinson, Peter Hofmann, Ramin Karimloo, and Ben Forster and five of my favorite Christines Sarah Brightman, Rebecca Caine, Anna Maria Kaufmann, Sierra Boggess, and Emmi Christensson. I hope you also enjoy these renditions, as you gaze into this piece of Butchubbles or Butch x Bubbles fan art. Michael Crawford and Sarah Brightman Colm Wilkinson and Rebecca Caine Peter Hofmann and Anna Maria Kaufmann (Auf Deutsch) Ramin Karimloo and Sierra Boggess Ben Forster and Emmi Christensson I hope you all enjoyed this. Don’t forget to let me know in the comments below which version of “The Phantom of the Opera” you prefer and who would be your dream cast for this said musical aside from having Butch as the Phantom and Bubbles as Christine. I, personally, would love to have Boomer as Raoul, Princess Morbucks as Carlotta, Jack Spicer as Ubaldo Piangi, Sara Bellum as Madame Giry, Robin Snyder as Meg Giry, Clay Bailey as Joseph Buquet, Mitch Mitchelson as Monsieur Firmin, and Mike Believe as Monsieur Firmin.

“Vivo per lei da quando sai La prima volta l’ho incontrata Non mi ricordo come, ma Mi entrata dentro e c’è restata Vivo per lei perché mi fa Vibrare forte l’anima Vivo per lei e non è un peso Vivo per lei anch’io lo sai E tu non esserne geloso Lei è di tutti quelli che Hanno un bisogno sempre acceso Come uno stereo in camera Di chi è da solo e adesso sa Che anche per lui, per questo Io vivo per lei È una musa che ci invita A sfiorarla con le dita Attraverso un pianoforte La morte lontana Io vivo per lei Vivo per lei che spesso sa Essere dolce e sensuale A volte picchia in testa, ma È un pugno che non fa mai male Vivo per lei, lo so mi fa Girare di città in città Soffrire un po’, ma almeno io vivo È un dolore quando parte Vivo per lei dentro gli hotels Con piacere estremo cresce Vivo per lei nel vortice Attraverso la mia voce Si espande e amore produce Vivo per lei nient’altro ho E quanti altri incontrerò Che come me hanno scritto in viso Io vivo per lei Io vivo per lei Sopra un palco o contro un muro Vivo per lei al limite Anche in un domani duro Vivo per lei al margine Ogni giorno una conquista La protagonista Sarà sempre lei Vivo per lei perché oramai Io non ho altra via d’uscita Perché la musica, lo sai Davvero non l’ho mai tradita Vivo per lei perché mi dà Pause e note in libertà Ci fosse un’altra vita la vivo La vivo per lei Vivo per lei la musica Io vivo per lei Vivo per lei, è unica Io vivo per lei Io vivo per lei Io vivo per lei Io vivo per lei” – Vivo Per Lei, Sung by Andrea Bocelli and Giorgia Todrani, Written by Gatto Panceri and Valerio Zelli, Released in 1995 English Translation: “I live for her, you know, since the first time I met her. I do not remember how, but she entered within me and stayed there. I live for her because she makes my soul vibrate so strongly. I live for her and it is not a burden. I live for her too, you know, and don’t be jealous: she belongs to all those who have a need that is always switched on like a stereo in the bedroom, to someone who is alone and now knows that she is also for him; for this reason I live for her. She is a muse who invites us to brush her with the fingers. Through a piano death remains far away, I live for her. I live for her who often knows how to be sweet and sensual: sometimes she stuns you but it is a blow that never hurts. I live for her. I know she makes me travel from town to town and suffer a little, but at least I live. It is painful when she leaves. I live in hotels for her. It grows with supreme pleasure. I live for her in the vortex. Through my voice it expands and produces love. I live for her. I know nothing else, and how many others I shall meet who, like me have written on their faces I live for her. I live for her on a dais or against a wall I live for her to the limit. also in a harsh tomorrow. I live for her to the very edge. Every day a conquest; the protagonist will always be her. I live for her because now I have no other way out, because, you know music is something I have truly never betrayed. I live for her because she gives me rests and notes with freedom. If there were another life I’d live it, I’d live it for her. I live for her, music. I live for her. I live for her, she is unique. I live for her. I live for her.

When you have such charming, 26-year-old gentlemen like Brick, Butch, Boomer, Mitch, and Mike being the dashing beaus that they are to 25-year-old Buttercup, 24-year-old Bubbles, 25-year-old Blossom, 24-year-old Bunny, and 25-year-old Robin, you can certainly bet your bottom dollar that it is euphoria and true love incarnate.
