Greetings, Rowdyruff Boys and Powerpuff Girls fans, it is your old pal Antoni here with another written entry. I know this one, in particular, might sound blasé to some of my more experienced readers but there are some thoughts about the color-coded, color-clash, and color-crack RuffPuff pairings that I would love to have the pleasure of expressing them in earnest. Sure, some of my thoughts remain the same, while others need further clarification. As one can tell, a lot of my thoughts are based on my own headcanons, my experience with reading fanfics focusing on all of the RRB x PPG pairings, looking through RRB x PPG fanart, reading through a lot of RRB x PPG memes and charts, and even my insurmountable immersion with other great superhero shows such as Teen Titans 2003 and Justice League. Moreover, even when Blossom, Bubbles, and Buttercup did not end up kissing Brick, Boomer, and Butch, therefore having Miss Bellum adopt the Rowdyruff Boys as her own sons, there would be countless possibilities and probabilities on how the boys and girls would end up working together not only as couples but as a six-person superhero team. However, I am getting way ahead of myself. Discussion and debate are always welcome in the comments section so long as they are civil and well thought-out. Furthermore, please keep in mind that these are my opinions and do not come whining to me if you disagree with any of them. With that said, let us begin. The Color-Coded RuffPuff Pairings (Boomer x Bubbles, Brick x Blossom, Butch x Buttercup) This set of RuffPuff pairings is the most popular throughout the RRB x PPG shipping fandom, mostly because of the ending where the Powerpuff Girls gave their kisses to their respective Rowdyruff Boys counterparts before the latter group exploded. Seriously, this is just as popular as Mickey Mouse x Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck x Daisy Duck, and the color-coded Chipmunks x Chipettes pairings (Alvin x Brittany, Simon x Jeanette, and Theodore x Eleanor). While I can understand the appeal of this set of pairings, I also find it to be extremely overrated and, at times, annoying, seeing that this set of RuffPuff pairings take up most of the RRB x PPG shipping fandom. I know this will get a lot of color-code RuffPuff shippers in a tizzy but please take the time to hear me out. The true story is that I used to be a color-code RuffPuff shipper ever since I was between my tweens and teens. Nowadays, I just cannot stand two out of the three color-coded RuffPuff pairings and chances are you already know what they are. Additionally, now as an adult, I basically find the color-coded RuffPuff pairings to be on the bland side at best and troublesome at worst. Even though I can enjoy the wonderful fan artists and fanfiction writers for producing such fine pieces of Boomubbles, Blossick, and Butchercup works, I have taken off those rose-colored glasses and have seen beyond this particularly overrated set of pairings. At least, one out of these three color-coded pairings managed to hold up exceptionally. Boomer x Bubbles (Boomubbles) This is the only color-coded pairing I can ever defend as my OTP and the best of this set of color-coded RuffPuff pairings from here to eternity. Sure, on the surface, if Boomubbles had an ice-cream flavor, it would be bubblegum blueberry swirl, which is pleasing to the palette so long as I am consuming it in moderation. However, looking beyond the sweet fluff, I can see a genuine, well-meaning, pleasing, and peaceful relationship between the blues, as they are the most normal out of their siblings. Considering that my upcoming Rowdyruff x Powerpuff OTP timeline fanart mainly focuses on how Boomer and Bubbles grew as a couple in my headcanon, I am really excited to have this accomplished. All of you Boomubbles shippers will have to wait for the final product because real life and educational priorities have been getting in the way, but here is the itty bitty CliffsNotes version to prepare you all for the real thing. Boomer and Bubbles start off as childhood sweethearts, affirm their relationship all the way up to teenhood, end up married in their young adult years, and start a happily euphoric family. Getting back to the matter at hand, I have been shipping Boomer and Bubbles as a couple ever since I was a teenager and, to this day, I am pleasantly surprised to see how well this particular color-coded pairing manages to hold up. I can imagine them to be unafraid of letting their emotions show and proclaim to the world of their undying love for each other. Moreover, both Boomer and Bubbles can find something positive within each other, thus sealing the deal in their ever-blossoming, ever-sweet relationship as boyfriend and girlfriend as teenagers and husband and wife as adults. Boomer would easily fall for Bubbles’ brand of forgiveness, kindness, physical flexibility, beauty, talent as a performing artist and visual artist, and warmth while Bubbles would be exceptionally fascinated with Boomer’s sympathy, physical and psychological strength, endurance, kindness, and protectiveness, thus making Boomubbles the best color-coded RuffPuff pairing in my eyes. Overall, I can still smile at how much Boomer and Bubbles have sweetness and lovability that few couples can ever compare. In spite of that sweet blueberry bubblegum cotton candy fluff, I can attest that Boomubbles is a treat that I would not mind having over and over again. Brick x Blossom (Blossick) I know that I used to like Blossick but, nowadays, I find this particular pairing really annoying! This is in due part to how overrated BlossSICK really is. Everywhere I go on the internet, whether looking at fanfiction or looking at fanart, Blossick seems to be the poster child for Rowdyruff x Powerpuff pairings. And the whole Blossick hullaballoo does not fricking stop! It makes me even happier that I abandoned the Blossick campaign in its entirety because of how annoying,…
This piece of Boomercup fanart, which is part of BrickercupMasterX3’s Boomercup month, is dedicated to Will Atkinson aka WillAforAwesome, Funactivefriend, and Skylar Michael Clearwater aka InsiderHorror who all celebrated their birthdays last week. So, I hope you guys had awesome, wonderful, brilliant, and dazzling birthdays and I wish you all a lot of love, joy, happiness, grandiosity, abundance, and charisma in your lives as artists and as people. This also goes to all of the Boomercup shippers as well, so, I hope you all enjoy this too. Looks like Buttercup got herself such a major, near-death pickle when she and Boomer were on patrol. Just when they split up, Buttercup encountered some convicted sex offenders who wanted to have a go at her. In spite of her constant refusal, being loyally married to Brick, the sex offenders decided to almost do her in by battering her, slicing her with their pocket knives, and nearly burning her inside an abandoned building. Boomer sensed something was wrong, as he heard noises in the distance. It was Buttercup being savagely ganged on by the felons inside the burning, abandoned building. He flew with the speed of light, got to the burning hideout, beat up the felons so savagely, and like the noble gentleman he is, he rescued his dear teammate Buttercup, so that she can be well-treated by her darling husband. Buttercup, in turn, is obviously more than grateful that Boomer came to her rescue and can truly see why Blossom admires him so much. Boomer is truly a selfless, strong, noble soul who deserves a lot of acclaim for his great heroism. Well, I hope you all enjoyed this piece of Boomercup fanart, which, in turn, is my final Boomercup submission for this year. See you all in the next submission. Boomer and Buttercup from The Powerpuff Girls belong to Craig McCracken and Cartoon Network.
This piece of Brickubbles and Boomercup fanart, which is part of BrickercupMasterX3’s Boomercup Month, is dedicated to A.J. Miller aka AJthePPGfan who is celebrating his birthday today. So, A.J. I wish you a lot of love, joy, happiness, beauty, strength, triumph, and abundance on your very special day as well as in your life as an artist and as a person. This is also dedicated to all of the hardcore and awesome Brickubbles and Boomercup shippers out there. So, I hope you all enjoy this. I’m sure you all had crushes no matter where you are in your life and you might have had butterflies in your stomachs, thus giving you that sensation of feeling so enticed when you see the apple of your eye. Well, the Blues can pretty much attest to that, especially when they were teenagers. Ah, Boomer and Bubbles aka The Blues. They wear their emotions on their sleeves. They are the nicest and most sympathetic people of Team Xtreme. They are also really creative. They seemed to be truly and indubitably made for each other. As much as I am a huge Boomubbles fan and OTP shipper, as I do believe that they are the best color-coded couple, I will admit this, I also like Brickubbles and Boomercup so much as cute, innocent pairings. However, as you can tell, I am also a major Brickercup, Butchubbles, and Blossoomer fan and OTP shipper. At least, I can say that, in my most humble opinion, Brickubbles and Boomercup are more desirable in my eyes that Blossick and Butchercup combined, though they do not approach the OTP levels of Brickercup, Butchubbles, Blossutch, Blossoomer, and Boomubbles combined. Boomer is seventeen years old while Bubbles is fifteen years old and they are both in the eleventh grade all back in the year 2009. Bubbles the cheerleader, the girls’ track star, the star artist, the aspiring actress, singer, and musician, and the most lovable girl in school is totally enamored with seventeen-year-old Brick the most popular young man in school, the MVP of the basketball team, and one of Townsville’s most well-rounded students. Sure, she has her favorite teddy-bear boyfriend Boomer by her side and she loves her darling strongman Butch, but Bubbles goes crazy over Brick’s signature swagger and his way of showing the ladies a good time, which should be no surprise, as Brick and Bubbles have been really good friends when they were Kindergarteners and when the Ruffs and the Puffs joined forces as one amazing superhero team. Plus, they have each others’ backs for great measure. Boomer the MVP of the soccer team, his school band’s lead singer, the aspiring actor, the boys’ track star, the Renaissance man, and one of the most handsome young men in school is head over heels in love with sixteen-year-old Buttercup the MVP of the volleyball team, the toughest and strongest girl in school, and the all-around athlete. As much as he loves his darling Bubbles and is so enamored with Blossom’s brand of awesomeness, Boomer just can’t get his eyes off of how strong, tough, and determined Buttercup really is. However, we all know, at the end of the day, these were just silly, adorable teen crushes they had back in the days. At least one can rest assured, that the cuteness factor for these pairings held up rather well. Well, I hope you all enjoyed this piece of Brickubbles and Boomercup fanart. See you all in the next submission. Brick, Bubbles, Boomer, and Buttercup from The Powerpuff Girls belong to Craig McCracken and Cartoon Network.
“I study nuclear science I love my classes I got a crazy teacher, he wears dark glasses Things are going great, and they’re only getting better I’m doing all right, getting good grades The future’s so bright, I gotta wear shades I gotta wear shades I’ve got a job waiting for my graduation Fifty thou a year, buys a lot of beer Things are going great, and they’re only getting better I’m doing all right, getting good grades The future’s so bright, I gotta wear shades I gotta wear shades Well I’m heavenly blessed and worldly wise I’m a peeping-tom techie with x-ray eyes Things are going great, and they’re only getting better I’m doing all right, getting good grades The future’s so bright, I gotta wear shades I gotta wear shades I study nuclear science I love my classes I got a crazy teacher, he wears dark glasses Things are going great, and they’re only getting better I’m doing all right, getting good grades The future’s so bright, I gotta wear shades I gotta wear shades I gotta wear shades I gotta wear shades” – “The Future’s So Bright, I Gotta Wear Shades”, originally sung by Timbuk3 from their debut album “Greetings from Timbuk3”, Released in 1986. This piece of Boomercup fanart, which is part of BrickercupMasterX3’s Boomercup Month, is dedicated to Marisa aka Absolhunter251, Lunaria aka Luna-rii, Sano aka Sano-BR, and Shannen Ngo aka SmoothCriminalGirl16 who are celebrating their birthdays today. So, Marisa, Lunaria, Sano, Shannen, I wish you a lot of love, joy, beauty, prosperity, happiness, and immense abundance in your lives as artists and as people and I wish you all such marvelous birthdays. Moreover, I dedicate this to all of the Boomercup shippers out there. With that said, I hope you enjoy this piece of Boomercup fanart and soak up its goodness. Here we have Boomer and Buttercup who are fresh out of their workout routine and they look absolutely stunning with their sleeveless shirts and short shorts, thus making them quite a formidable duo consisting of a lovable dumb muscle and a fiery brawler. While I have always kept Boomercup as my cute, innocent pairing for life, I want you to take a good, close look at the shirt colors and the sunglasses frames in terms of who I ship Boomer and Buttercup as my OTPs for life and those who ended up having such lovely children from their respective spouses. Don’t be shy, as I know this will be fun, especially when you type it down on the comments below. For this Boomercup submission, I have grown up on the classic song “The Future’s so Bright, I Gotta Wear Shades” when I caught this as the ending credits to Disney’s “An Extremely Goofy Movie” as an eight-year-old boy traveling to San Francisco alongside my mother and younger sister staying at a relative’s place. The version I caught was sung by Pat Benatar, but I was pleasantly surprised to know that the original version was sung by Timbuk3. I listened to both versions and I have to say that I found myself leaning towards the Pat Benatar version more mostly because of nostalgia and the overall feel of this particular rendition. So, I hope you also enjoy both of these versions, as you gaze into the loveliness that is Boomercup. The original Timbuk3 version from 1986 in music video form The Pat Benatar and Neil Giraldo version from 2000 Well, I hope you all enjoyed this and I will see you all in the next submission. Take care! Boomer and Buttercup from The Powerpuff Girls belong to Craig McCracken and Cartoon Network.
This piece of Brickercup vs Boomercup fanart, which is part of my dearest BrickercupMasterX3’s Boomercup month, is dedicated to Tayler D. aka Taydrewa7x who celebrated her birthday three days ago, Lea Moncada aka zeetrip and Kazu aka KazunaPikachu who celebrated their birthdays two days ago, and WILDO aka Webfriends246 who celebrated her birthday yesterday. So, Tayler, Lea, Kazu, Wildo, I hope you lovely ladies had such awesome, wonderful, charming, dazzling, and grand birthday celebrations. I wish you a lot of love, joy, abundance, and happiness in your lives as artists and as people. This is also dedicated to all of the Brickercup and Boomercup shippers out there. So, do enjoy and soak up that Brickercup and Boomercup goodness. What happens when you have a seventeen-year-old basketball star who was dubbed as one of the most popular and well-rounded boys in school and his seventeen-year-old brother who is younger than him by a month, is a soccer star, and was deemed as one of the most lovable and talented boys to grace Townsville High, eyeing for a sixteen-year-old volleyball star who had such a fiery and tough reputation when she was a schoolgirl? Why you would get a sport pun-filled high school love triangle, as Brick, Boomer, and Buttercup were Townsville High’s MVPs of the basketball, soccer, and volleyball teams back in 2009 when they were eleventh graders. Sure, Brick and Boomer are rather possessive of Buttercup, but as you can obviously tell, she is not enjoying this. Sometimes she even wonders why these two gentlemen would ever fall in love with her in the first place and she is no damsel in distress by any stretch of the imagination. Well, I hope you all enjoyed this. If you to ask me which Buttercup-centered pairing I prefer to have as my OTP and which one I prefer to have as my cute, innocent pairing, the answer should be clear as night and day. However, I would love to know from you guys if you prefer Brickercup or Boomercup via comments, as I am sure I will get some pretty interesting answers. So, dear viewers, until the next submission. Brick, Buttercup, and Boomer from The Powerpuff Girls belong to Craig McCracken and Cartoon Network.
“La notte qui non torna più, dal giorno che sei andata via. Ed il cielo ha smesso di giocare, con le stelle e con la luna. E le nuvole sono ferme qui, come lacrime che non cadono. Vedi come il tempo, perde anche il ricordi. Resta solo il canto, di un amore che non muore. Prendi la mia mano, danza con il vento. Apro le mie ali, posso solo amarti così. Vieni, vieni, via con me. Resta solo il canto, di un amore che non muore. Prendi la mia mano, danza con il vento. Apro le mie ali, posso solo amarti così. Vieni, vieni, via con me.” – Il Canto, Composed by Romano Musumarra and Luciano Pavarotti, originally sung by Luciano Pavarotti, released in 1999 English Translation Courtesy of Translate Lyrics: “The night here does not return anymore, since the day you left. And the sky has stopped playing, with the stars and with the moon. And the clouds are firm here, like tears that do not fall. See how time, it also loses memories. Only the song is left, of a love that does not die. Take my hand, dance with the wind. I open my wings, I can only love you so much. Come on, come on, go with me. Only the song is left, of a love that does not die. Take my hand, dance with the wind. I open my wings, I can only love you so much. Come on, come on, go with me.” This piece of Boomercup fanart, as part of KatyGorl’s Claim a PPG Pairing Month last September, is dedicated to Jonathan Maxwell Peterson aka KingofSupremeChaos, Fairy Star Guardian aka OperaticAnimeNimue, and Charles Morgenstern aka TetraModal who celebrated their birthdays several days ago. So, I hope you guys had wonderful, blissful, and exceptional birthdays and I wish you abundance and joy in everything you accomplish as artists and people. Ah, Boomercup or Boomer x Buttercup, a pairing I can easily classify as a very cute, innocent pairing between The Fleet Athlete and The Toughest Fighter. Like I said when one combines Boomer’s sympathetic, lovable, and endearing dumb muscle nature with Buttercup’s feistiness, fiery attitude, and independence one gets a pairing that is quite flexible. Sure, in my opinion, it does not approach the OTP level that Brickercup, Blossoomer, and Boomubbles ended up achieving but Boomercup still manages to leave a fuzzy feeling inside of me. I first heard “Il Canto” originally sung by Luciano Pavarotti ever since I was twelve years old and this song was part of my life growing up. Three years later, I listened to Katherine Jenkins’ version and I also loved it. Moreover, just last night, I watched Jonas Kaufmann’s version of this song and I thought he was great as always. I figured that Pavarotti’s and Musumarra’s Il Canto would be a nice fit to Boomer and Buttercup as a couple, as it manages to be a sweet, moving song. So, I hope you enjoy listening to Pavarotti’s, Jenkins’, and Kaufmann’s versions of this song, as you gaze at the sweetness that is Boomercup. Il Canto sung by Luciano Pavarotti https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6pqT2sGDgFw Il Canto sung by Katherine Jenkins https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N0ntVXzO_Lc Il Canto sung by Jonas Kaufmann https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HS6QvZXjSjs I hope you all enjoyed this and I will see you in the next submission.

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.
It’s Summertime! And for Boomer, Blossom, Buttercup, and Bubbles, aka The Fearlessly Fabulous Four, it’s the time where they have to look totally fly complete with shades, for the temperature has been rising in good, old Townsville, USA. I definitely enjoyed drawing this, as I was able to color their respective sunglasses and attire and the results were extremely pleasing. Boomer has definitely brought out his inner Muscles Glasses from Epic Meal Time. From the stoic expression to his awesome built he certainly makes the cut. Personality-wise, he’s more of a Tyler. Makes me wonder what Townsville’s version of Epic Meal Time looks like in terms of the cast. Obviously Brick fits Harley the most, Butch would be akin to Muscles Glasses, Boomer might be Tyler, and maybe other guys like Mitch Mitchelson and Mike Believe would be brought in to complete the roster. Let me know in the comments what your ideal Epic Meal Time Townsville Edition cast would look like. Blossom looks absolutely gorgeous. I am so happy I was able to get her stylishness down to a T and those rose-tinted glasses are a perfect fit. Buttercup admittedly acts more like Muscles Glasses in this picture given her equally stoic expression and the camouflage pants are a great fit for someone who is Team Xtreme’s toughest fighter. Finally, there’s Bubbles. I cannot tell you how much effort I had to put in order to get the peace sign down to T, but for what I accomplished I am rather proud of myself. So, there you have it. Four fabulous comrades consisting of Boomer the lovable, buff gentle giant, Blossom the genius bruiser, Buttercup the feisty bruiser, and Bubbles the kickass Genki girl all enjoying their summer. What are you waiting for? Grab your shades and bask in that summer glory. Boomer, Blossom, Buttercup, and Bubbles from The Powerpuff Girls belong to Craig McCracken.
This piece of fan art is dedicated to all of the shippers of Blossoomer, Boomercup, and Boomubbles. Let’s all unwind and take a nice stroll with another beloved OT4 from the Powerpuff Girls universe, Boomer, Blossom, Buttercup, and Bubbles, which is thus connected as Boomsomutterblesor, as I would like to call them, The Fearlessly Fabulous Four. We obviously see, from left to right, Boomer, Blossom, Buttercup, and Bubbles looking rather serene and placid in a forest with an orange tree, an apple tree, and a garland of flowers that serves as a bridge between the two. Much like my previous Bricksomutchercup fan art, Boomer is 23, Blossom and Buttercup are 22, and Bubbles is 21. While I do love Brick, Butch, Blossom, and Buttercup because of how tough, strong, and awesome they are together as an OT4, combining Boomer with all three Powerpuff Girls is not only fascinating but it also paves the way for a healthier, more civil, and more loving relationship with the four of them and the shipping plausibility that Boomer has with not only Bubbles but also with Blossom and Buttercup is rather intriguing, thus making interesting dynamics come to fruition. Moreover, I have always seen Boomer as the first Rowdyruff to drop the nasty act and become the Powerpuff Girls’ greatest friend, ally, and companion and I see Blossom, Buttercup, and Bubbles as the ones who are more positive influence in Boomer’s life and, therefore, aid him to be a much better, more loving, and an overall happier person. On a side note, this particular OT4 could very much have the scenario of any well-written harem anime akin to Ah! My Goddess and Saber Marionette J, where Boomer is the misunderstood, frustrated young man who is so sick and tired of being consistently picked on by his older brothers, Brick and Butch. By no means would he be a spineless male lead, Boomer is much better than those typical male protagonists in harem anime, as he would call off Brick and Butch for their bullying and condescending attitude and tell them to screw off. That is until he meets Blossom, Buttercup, and Bubbles does he not only secretly admire them but he also longs to have better companionship. Boomer, Blossom, Buttercup, and Bubbles would not understand each other at first, but Bubbles, being the optimist, decides to welcome him with open arms. Obviously, Bubbles is the cheery, loving, optimistic, fun-loving young lady who loves to see the best in everyone and certainly feels very close to Boomer. Buttercup is the stubborn, athletic, rambunctious, fiercely outspoken tomboy with a rather soft center that might be discovered by Boomer. Finally, Blossom is the book smart, eloquent, composed, virtuous, ladylike diplomat who sees beyond Boomer’s hard shell and realizes how much he’s hurting and how much he wants to be more loved. Thus, these three young ladies would give Boomer love in their own special ways, Blossom with her poise, compassion, empathy, and willingness to help him become a better person, Buttercup with her own brand of tough love, thus ensuring that he stands up for himself, and Bubbles with her overall purity, unwavering kindness, compassion, love, and light that she brings to Boomer, thus making his affections for her rather infectious. Essentially, Boomer does match Keiichi Morisato’s everyman nature and Otaru’s energetic personality. Blossom bears Belldandy’s and Cherry’s composure, elegance, and diplomacy while being a little more physical and outspoken. Buttercup has Urd’s feistiness and Bloodberry’s fierceness, athletic prowess, and toughness. Finally, Bubbles indubitably has Skuld’s cuteness, enthusiasm, and innocence as well as Lime’s endearingly energetic personality. Speaking of pairings, I know I made it really clear in my other two works involving Boomer, Blossom, Buttercup, and Bubbles as well as the RRB/PPG pairing chart, but here’s the keyword version of my thoughts on the Boomer-centered pairings. Boomer x Blossom (Blossoomer)- endearing, plausible, charming, sweet, healthy, lovely, bears an innocence in terms of having the inwardly gentle Boomer and the diplomatically eloquent Blossom being paired up, has the potential to be a beneficial romantic pairing, makes me empathize these two, as Boomer is my most favorite Rowdyruff of all time and Blossom is my most favorite Powerpuff of all time next to Buttercup. Speaking of Buttercup. Boomer x Buttercup (Boomercup)- hilarious, cute, charming in an offbeat way, interesting role reversal with Boomer being rather submissive to Buttercup who wears the pants in this relationship, makes a great source of entertainment, just as healthy, as they help build each others’ self-esteem through encouragement and breaking down each others’ walls, functions more as a platonic pairing though more power to anyone who enjoys pairing these two up. Boomer x Bubbles (Boomubbles)- the healthiest, most endearing, most plausible, the loveliest, and, in my opinion, the greatest of the color-coded RRB/PPG pairings, bears a fairy-tale-like element with Boomer doing everything he can to keep Bubbles safe from harm, star-crossed lovers akin to Romeo and Juliet and Tristan and Isolde, meant for each other despite all odds, shows the most stability in terms of their overall synergy, hence Boomubbles being my Number 1 OTP for life when it comes to RRB/PPG pairings. Well, I hope you enjoyed this piece of fan art as well as my post and until then, have a lovely summer!

The PPG/RRB Shipping Chart was originally created by QuietLullabies. Well, I am in the marvelous city of Madrid, Spain, where I will be celebrating my 26th birthday. Yes, I know, another year older, another year wiser. So, to celebrate my upcoming birthday here’s my take on the whole PPG/RRB shipping meme chart. I have been seeing fellow artists’ takes on these pairings. Some were interesting, some were a bit one-sided, and some were actually well-thought out and I enjoyed reading their opinions on the Rowdyruffs and Powerpuffs they like or not like to pair up with. So, without ado, here’s my take on the PPG/RRB shippings. OTPs: Boomer/Bubbles or Boomubbles- In my opinion, this has to be the most plausible and overall best of not only the color-coded RRB/PPG pairings but also RRB/PPG pairings in general. These two seem like they are destined to be for each other and are akin to the star-crossed lovers that I have seen in the media and literature, i.e. Romeo and Juliet. I am very sure that these two would start leaving behind any animosity if the Rowdyruff Boys became good guys, joined forces with the Powerpuff Girls and will be the first to show loads of forgiveness and compassion, while they are still young children. Eventually, Boomer and Bubbles would start becoming the closest of friends and comrades, thus building a healthy and genuine relationship between the two. Once they reach their tweens and teens, they would develop even deeper feelings for each other and will actually go on more dates, aside from the usual crime-fighting they have to do. Plus, in my headcanon, they would end up being the first to marry in their late teens to their early 20s and have children with Boomer being the loving, well-meaning father and Bubbles being the supportive, compassionate mother, in spite of the fact that they are the youngest of their respective sibling groups. It’s no surprise why I love the Blues when they are together. It’s because of not only their appeal of being adorable, sweet, and/or lovely but it also has this fairytale-like feel in their relationship, where after every trial, every challenge, and every hardship, Boomer and Bubbles still have each others’ backs and will seem to be the couple that will stay faithful to each other until the end of time. The Reds and the Greens were rather interesting to pair up because not only do I like Blossick and Butchercup, even though they can be a tad bit overrated, but I also enjoy Brickercup and Blossutch as much as the former. Moreover, the Reds and the Greens don’t really have that fairy tale, lovey-dovey, sentimental vibe that the Blues have, thus showing how tough being in a relationship is, yet at the same time it is reassuring, as principles of respect, responsibility, compassion, allegiance, and trust need to be put in to practice, not only with each other but also for the good of their team. So, here’s my take on these pairings, even though I made it kind of clear in my OT4 drawing of Bricksomutchercup. I still keep my word that Brick, Butch, Blossom, and Buttercup are the strongest OT4 in my opinion, hence that’s why I dub them to be my Four Favorite Bruisers of All Time because of their unwaveringly strong personalities and overall determination. Plus, I imagine the Reds and the Greens living together under one roof, with the Blues living in another house. So, here are my explanations, anyway. Brick/Blossom or Blossick- I put this as my first choice because they seem to be the ones who follow suit when it comes to Boomer and Bubbles being together. As they grow up and form a six-person superhero team, I can see them still obtaining responsibilities of being leaders as well as the eldest children with Brick and his large-and-in-charge warlord personality who ensures a fair fight, great combat skills from all of his teammates, and a grand victory for every mission they do and Blossom and her tendency to be the team mom who ensures strategy to be present in battle and the overall safety of not only her beloved but also her comrades. I can see their romance as not being that of a fairy tale but one that is really challenging, as walls need to be broken down, trust has to be formed, and respect and allegiance need to be put to practice. Sure, they would initially have difficulty trusting and respecting each other. However, as time goes by, they would start to see each other for who they are. Brick would see that Blossom is not always Little Miss Perfect and Blossom would see that Brick has some insecurities, which are more often than not hidden in this proud personality. Together, these two can take what primal doubts and insecurities they have and take them in stride, thus helping each other reach their full potential not only physically but psychologically as well. As young adults in their twenties, they and the Greens would even have a double wedding after their youngest siblings’ matrimony and as parents, I can imagine Blossom being the stern, well-meaning, and supportive mom and Brick being the strong, tough, and really loving dad. I really love this pairing because it does show how being in a relationship is not always easy but when two people have patience, trust, respect, allegiance, and understanding anything is possible. Butch/Buttercup or Butchercup- Ah, yes. One of the Takahashi couples to end all Takahashi couples because of their volcanically belligerent sexual tension. They would be the couple who would argue and shout one moment and be cuddly and make love to each other in the next. As I stated before, Ranma and Akane would end up paling in comparison to Butch’s and Buttercup’s brand of belligerent sexual tension. As the toughest and most volatile fighters, with Butch being the big muscle and Buttercup being the…
