This piece of RRB/PPG fanart, known in my headcanon as the superhero team Team Xtreme, is dedicated to a fellow DeviantArtist, Petia or jailbaitCAT, who is celebrating her birthday. So, jailbaitCAT, I hope you enjoy my gift to you. Your Rowdyruff Boys/Powerpuff Girls fanart is completely amazing and entertaining and they leave me with a huge smile on my face. I wish you a great birthday and lots of love to you. It is commonplace that lions stick and fight together as one pride. Well, for Team Xtreme they are proof positive. Moreover, it looks like our dear Team Xtreme members have gone feral, as in they are acting like lions roaring at the top of their lungs and protecting their pride against any trespasser. Their prey of choice would usually be vandals, arsonists, robbers, demons, monsters, and all types of villains who dare disturb their peace. They also hunt for the usual antelope, zebra, and buffalo much like every lion. Brick and Butch are the Alpha Males of this pride. Their fierceness, strength, and ferocity are legendary. If any invader dares to trespass or disturb the peace, these muscular warriors will not hesitate to sound the call by beating their chests complete with their earth-shattering roars and let their teammates come to arms. In terms of their relationship with each other, they enjoy testing their strength and engaging in close-contact battles with each other to prove who the stronger Alpha Male really is. They are also tough on their younger brother, Boomer, but tender to their mates, Blossom and Buttercup, and even playful to their youngest teammate, Bubbles. Boomer may not be that much of an Alpha Male like his older brothers but he is very reliable in terms of his incredible strength and speed. Brick and Butch love to show their dominance by flexing their muscles at Boomer. He would retaliate by flexing back at them and challenging them to a wrestling match. Back when he was a cub, he would always lose to Brick and Butch. However, now as a full-grown adult, he manages to show his older brother who they should never mess with. While he has a mate in Bubbles, he also likes to get it on with Blossom and Buttercup with his older brothers’ approval, as they know how close he is to all of the girls. Blossom and Buttercup function as the queens of their tribe. Their authority, courage, fierceness, and combat prowess are indubitably unrivaled. Blossom bears intuition, intellect, and agility which make her reliable in planning attacks. On the other hand, Buttercup bears a warrior’s pride, as she loves a good challenge. Seeing as they are Brick’s and Butch’s mates, though they also trade mates from time to time, Blossom and Buttercup ensure that they do not do anything rash, thus having their agility and speed be a perfect complement to Brick’s and Butch’s brawns. They are also tender to Boomer, as they see that underneath his brawny shell lies a kind soul who is willing to protect their pride. Bubbles may be the youngest and the sweetest on the outside, but anger her and she will unleash her unbridled fury on those who oppose her. She’s playful and respectful to Brick and Butch, loving and tender towards Boomer, as he is her mate, and extremely close to her older sisters, Blossom and Buttercup. Moreover, she loves to ensure the peace within their pride. Well, I hope you enjoy this. Now, Brick, Butch, Boomer, Blossom, Buttercup, Bubbles, any last words for our viewers? Brick: Yeah. Butch: We got this to say. Boomer: And we hope you listen. Blossom: And look closely. Buttercup: Because if you don’t… Bubbles: Well, let’s just say something unpleasant might happen. (Brick and Butch raise their arms up in the air then stretch them sideways. After that, they flex their biceps.) Brick and Butch: Grrrrr…..ROOOOOARRR!!!!!! (Brick and Butch then take a deep breath and beat their chests complete with Tarzan’s signature ululation.) Brick and Butch: AAAAAAAAAAHHHHH!!!!!! (Boomer flexes his pecs while putting one knee on the ground.) Boomer: Grrrrr… (Boomer then flexes his bicep.) Boomer: ROOOOOAAAARRR!!!! (Blossom gets into a crouching position and raises her hand, as if though she were going to claw he prey.) Blossom (starts hissing, then…): ROAAAAAARRRR!!!! (Buttercup gets herself into her combat stance with claws unleashed.) Buttercup: ROAAAAAARRRRR!!!!!!!! (Bubbles prepares herself to lunge and unleashes her claws.) Bubbles: ROOOOAAAAARRRR!!!!!! Brick, Butch, Boomer, Blossom, Buttercup, and Bubbles: Grrrrr… Bubbles (cheerily): Oh, by the way. Brick, Butch, Boomer, Blossom, Buttercup, and Bubbles: Happy birthday, Petia aka jailbaitCAT! We hope you have an awesome birthday. Take care and lots of love from all of us. Well, I hope you enjoyed this. Now if you excuse me, I have to prepare for a Spanish exam tomorrow. As we say in Spanish, hasta la próxima y Buenas Noches. Brick, Butch, Boomer, Blossom, Buttercup, and Bubbles from The Powerpuff Girls belong to Craig McCracken and Cartoon Network.
(Inuyasha, Ayame, Kenta, and Keita spot in the distance of their caves a huge, hulking boar demon causing terror and pandemonium.) Inuyasha: Kaito, Momoko, Maya, you three stay and guard the cave. Kaito: But can’t we come with you? Momoko: What will happen if you don’t come back? Maya: Perhaps, we shouldn’t worry too much. Dad, Mom, Kenta, and Keita are gonna kick that demon’s butt. Ayame: Maya’s right. You don’t have to worry too much about us. We can handle it. Inuyasha: So, darling, what shall we do about that boar demon? Ayame: I say we give him a well-deserved ass-kicking. Don’t you agree, honey? Boys? Inuyasha: Got it. Kenta and Keita: Affirmative, mom. (Inuyasha, Ayame, Kenta, and Keita assemble and jet off. Inuyasha and Kenta transform into their full youkai forms, while Keita starts to grow purple stripes on his cheeks. Then they land near the spot where the boar demon is.) Kenta: Yo, dad. Inuyasha: Yeah, Kenta? Kenta: Show me your muscles before showing those to Mr. Big, Mean, and Ugly. (Inuyasha flexes his pecs and deltoids to Kenta.) Inuyasha: My muscles are always ready, my boy. Now, show me your muscles. (Kenta flexes his biceps and Inuyasha touches them.) Inuyasha: Hmmm…Nice. Very nice. Looks like yours and Keita’s training with me and mom has paid off, huh? Kenta: Yeah. (Inuyasha and Kenta nod and growl in agreement with grins on their faces.) Keita: Hey, mom. Ayame: Yes, Keita? Keita: Show me how tough and strong you are. Ayame: All right. Just lend me your palms and don’t flinch. (Keita shows his palms to Ayame and she starts punching them.) Keita: Awesome punches, mom. Ayame: Thank you, son. Now, show me those biceps of yours. (Keita flexes his biceps. Ayame touches them and nods with approval.) Ayame: You are surely ready. Keita: Mom, I’m always ready to kick butt. Ayame: Hehehe. That’s my boy. Inuyasha: Looks like we’re all ready because Mr. Big, Mean, and Ugly is approaching. Ayame: For sure and we’re gonna have lots of boar tonight and the next few weeks. (The huge, hulking boar demon comes in stomping, stops, and lets out a bellowing, earth-shattering roar to Inuyasha, Ayame, Kenta, and Keita.) Inuyasha: Now it’s our turn. (Inuyasha slowly raises his arms and stretches them. He then flexes his well-shaped biceps complete with a growl and a roar.) Inuyasha: Grrr…ROOOAAAR!!!! (Ayame cracks her knuckles, stretches her legs, rolls her head and shoulders and flexes. She also growls and roars.) Ayame: Grrr…RAAAHH!!! (Kenta and Keita stretch their legs, raise their arms, flex their biceps, and roar.) Kenta and Keita: ROAAAARR!!!! (The boar demon grunts in response.) Inuyasha: In case you didn’t know what that meant. Ayame: That means you’re going down. Kenta: We’ll make sure of it. Keita: And you’re gonna be our dinner tonight. Inuyasha: Babe, boys, let’s go kick Mr. Big, Ugly, and Mean’s ass! Ayame: Affirmative, honey. Kenta and Keita: Yes, sir! (Inuyasha, Ayame, Kenta, and Keita charge at the boar demon.) Inuyasha, Ayame, Kenta, and Keita: ROOOOOOAAAARRR!!!! I bet you already know what happens after this. It’s certainly a pleasure seeing Inuyasha being the Big Kahuna that he is flexing his biceps in his full youkai form to make all of his enemies quake and tremble, Ayame showing her toughness, strength, and sexiness as a force to not be messed with, and Inuyasha’s favorite sons and eldest twin children of their family, Kenta and Keita, displaying that they are their father’s and mother’s sons by also flexing their muscles. And for them to look exceptionally amazing for their ages, what with Inuyasha being 35, Ayame being 32, and Kenta and Keita being 16, it is certainly saying something. Moreover, these jungle/forest warriors don’t need any spears, knives, bows or arrows. They got their fists, claws, muscles, super strength, heightened senses and super speed to do the job for them. It just goes to show you, the family that fights and slays together, stays together. Inuyasha and Ayame from Inuyasha belong to Rumiko Takahashi and Sunrise. Kenta and Keita belong to me.
“I put a spell on you ‘Cause you’re mine You better stop the things you do I ain’t lyin’ No, I ain’t lyin’” – Nina Simone, June 1965, original 1956 version by Screamin’ Jay Hawkins This is my art trade with a very great friend and fellow DeviantArtist, BrickercupMasterX3, who requested me to draw Poison Ivy and Harley Quinn represented here as a gorgeous, sexy couple. So, Paula aka BrickercupMasterX3, I hope you enjoy this piece of fanart I did, I’m very happy to be considered your good friend, I am so happy that we can conversations about our favorite couples and everything animation-related and keep on making awesome pieces of work. My opinion on Poison Ivy x Harley Quinn is basically this. I like it. I never thought about pairing them up as a lesbian couple, mostly because I haven’t frequented the DC superhero franchise as much as I should have. However, I will say that Harley surely deserves someone better than the ever-abusive Joker. If I were in her position, I would just get away from him immediately, run to Poison Ivy, and start something with her. Having Poison Ivy as a life partner would certainly be a much healthier choice. Well, thanks so much for taking a gander at this piece of fanart and have a lovely summer. Poison Ivy and Harley Quinn from Batman belong to DC Comics, Bruce Timm, Eric Radomski and Warner Bros. Animation.
Do you want a lovely yet underrated Inuyasha couple that needs more love? Do you want a couple that’s new and refreshing? Well, you need Ginta x Shunran or GinShun. The pairing that combines a hilarious, charming, fun hunk of a gentleman and a mischievous, cute, gorgeous darling of a lady who is remarkably famous for her cherry blossom mirages. Plus, these two can kick all types of butt. Ginta and Shunran from Inuyasha belong to Rumiko Takahashi and Sunrise.
My love for Inuyasha x Ayame or InuAya will always stay unwavering every single time. There’s so much to love about having these two sexy, powerful, awesome warriors together as an unbreakable and healthy couple. Inuyasha and Ayame from Inuyasha belong to Rumiko Takahashi and Sunrise.
Let’s step into the bullfighters’ arena for this new production of Bizet’s Carmen at the Deutsche Oper Berlin starring Mademoiselle Clémentine Margaine as Carmen and Monsieur Charles Castronovo as Don José. Enjoy the review and let me know your opinions as well.
Ah, La Grande Madama Diana Damrau. Fresh from her role debut as Maria Stuarda in Zürich, she brought this iconic queen to Berlin accompanied by some equally wonderful singing actors. I know I should have mentioned this in the review, but I’ll say it anyway. I am anticipating the day she adds Anna Bolena and especially the Roberto Devereux Elisabetta I, as she will definitely knock these roles right out of the park. Enjoy the review and let me know your opinions as well.
