Welcome to...
The COLDCOFFEE THREAD

Where we like our coffee cold.

~The Pairing~

ColdCoffeShipping is the name given to the pairing of Paul/Shinji and Barry/Jun. It's mostly one-sided, but at the very least, Paul seems to respect Barry! Oh, Barry is such a fanboy, he won't give up until he wins Paul's heart for sure!

The Name

The name given to this pairing, ColdCoffeShipping, refers to the fact that Paul is cold toward others, most of the time, while Barry is so hyper he appears to be high on coffee. Combined, these two are like cold coffee. And ta-da!



~My Reason~

Well first off, I think Barry's fanboying is adorable. He idolized Paul JUST because how well he did in the Hearthome Tournament! I've gotta imagine, maybe he was focusing on Paul's looks as well as his battle style. These two fit together nicely. I can just imaine Barry being all hyper and reckless, while Paul would be calmer while scolding him xP What got me hooked on this pairing was mainly fanart, and THEN I started to look at the hints in the anime. This pairing also has one of the best fitting names in the shipping world; ColdCoffee. I mean, really! It fits really well! <3


RULES:
1. All SPPf rules apply.
2. Don't bash other pairings unless EVERYONE is against them.
3. If you have porn, please post it, LINK it in a spoiler tag.
4. When posting fan art, please link back to the creator.
5. Don't bash other members.
6. If you link to a japanese site, PLEASE explain how to navigate around it.
7. Have fun!
8. PM me if you have any questions or content you cannot post, so that I may post it. Yes. Even porn is accepted.

How did you know? d:

Anyway, I've been a fan of Coldcoffeeshipping before Barry even appeared in the anime, ahah. I first got in to it thanks to this (http://www.fanfiction.net/s/4025381/7/turn_the_page) lil oneshot by Astromelia, which also happened to inspire my own (http://www.fanfiction.net/s/4663346/1/Of_Coffee_and_Romance) Coldcoffee/various other ships fic. The only other Barry/Paul thing I've written is a bit...nsfw, but you can easily find it at my ff.net account.

You wouldn't even believe my surprise and immense happiness when Barry appeared in the anime and made this ship one-sided canon. It was rather unexpected. Especially since at the time, it was in the running to win "Best NeverMet Pairing" back when the Shipping Face-Off was still active. It actually ended up winning, too! I miss the shipping face-off; someone should make another.

Yeah so basically this is a quality ship, and would probably be my OTP if EliteUnder hadn't stolen my heart first.

Welcome, TRO and MuffinPaula! I'm so happy you have joined. *hands out shipping cookies, t-shirt, and a cup of cold coffee* Your names have been added to the list!

Okay, here I have some nice fanart to show ya'll!

Fantasy (from Pixiv) (http://*******.com/view.php?pic=23u3pc&s=7) - This was the first pic of them I ever saw...spent 10 minutes choking from laughter.
Photo Time! (not sure where I got this) (http://*******.com/view.php?pic=206dg6d&s=7) - Wonder why Barry's so tall? o3o
Idolizer Lol (from Deviantart) (http://*******.com/view.php?pic=2hyxmwj&s=7) - This is just funny xP

I have a lot more, but I'm gonna leave them for later so I don't run out quickly~

Topic time!

Just how much do you love ColdCoffeeShipping and why?

I'll answer later, cuz I've gotta go and edit the first post!

Ok i'll be honest. I don't love it to much. I just highly like it :3. It's actually the only non straight ship I like. I like it because ever since I saw Barry going fangirl over Paul it made me like "OMG I wonder what would happen if they met" and when i saw tht I was laughing. It's just funny somehow, how Barry meets some one he loves and Paul doesn't even know him XD

Oh! I like this pairing! Not in a romantic way but in a quirky-cute-funny duo sort of way.

Just how much do you love ColdCoffeeShipping and why?
How much do I like the pairing? Well it's the only pairing I like from the D/P series. It's so funny how Barry fanboys over Paul while he's just, "Hmph" while not being mean to him. And the fact that Barry seems to be happy to see him no matter what, he sure is determined!

On a side note, I see my picture up there! XD (It's the Idolizer one)

Here's another pic I drew! http://sweet-candy-girl.deviantart.com/gallery/28529470#/d3fxcnj

Just been looking at some of the rules you have put and I am a little unsure with a few of them...


2. Don't bash other pairings unless EVERYONE is against them.No. Do not bash other pairings FULL STOP unless you are capable of a friendly debate that doesn't resort to flamewars. I am stupidly strict on this because it's POKEMON; fandom of 11,000 plus NAMED shippings and countless, COUNTLESS combinations. Everyone's tastes are naturally going to be different.


3. If you have porn, please post it, put it in a spoiler tag.It might be worth adding that it should only be linked too, not directly posted within said spoiler tag.


6. Please, please, PLEASE don't say ANYTHING regarding Paul/Dawn or Barry/Dawn. Please. Nothing will happen to you, but I simply greatly dislike those pairings...This could be taken the wrong way and may even get you trolled. Stating that this thread is for ColdCoffeeshipping only and that mentioning other Barry and Paul ships isn't allowed and is definitely off-topic will suffice.

Hehe, lolz, you'll see how in time, you'll start liking more yaoi xP So yeah, Barry's fanboying is totally adorable. I found it hilarious that he's all excited whern he meets Paul, but the latter doesn't even know him xD

Thanks for the links, I'll make sure to add the fics to our library. It's such a shame there isn't much literature on ColdCoffeeShipping! It has a lot of potential. I have a fanfic that is Coma vs Coldcoffee, but Coma is going to win, so I'm not sure if it would count as a ColdCoffeeShipping fic. It's called Sudeni Hito Made and it's here in the forums...meh.

I'm going away for the rest of the week, so I expect this thread to be kept alive during my absence. YA HEAR ME, DARLINGS?

EDIT:
StarGaze: Welcome! *hands out shipping merchandise* Can't wait to see you in action here at the thread. And nice pic! I just wish I could draw!

Vycksta: Thanks you for pointing those out WITHOUT closing this thread. I'll make the arrangements.

It might be worth adding that it should only be linked too, not directly posted within said spoiler tag.


That's sorta what I meant at first, I was just in such a rush while creating this thread. I'll go fix that.

You're right. My hatred for Ikari and Twinleaf shouldn't be made a rule...I realize that now. I'll go remove it xP I should've said "Do not mention Dawn" but that would also be wrong xD


I'm off!

Just how much do you love ColdCoffeeShipping and why?

Like I said before, it's almost my OTP. Just a ladder rung below OTP status. Even before Barry's fanboy-ism became a thing, I liked it. I guess I actually imagined them clashing (my headcanon involves Barry not being very keen on people who are arrogant jerks, or even stronger than him), but then eventually growing to realize they have similarities?
at least that's how it's playing out in my fic, derp

So I like both aspects... Barry like-idolizing him, and Barry like-hating him. And Paul... Well he tries to act like Barry annoys the ever-loving-whatever out him, but also gains tolerance...and perhaps respect.

Anyway now that some BS, I'm tired because it's 3am rant is over, have some fanart:

A gift, to me! (http://i14.photobucket.com/albums/a347/willywiluhps/coldcoffeevalentine.png)

This was my Secret Cupid gift from once-member willwiluhps (http://serebiiforums.com/member.php?u=118402) back in like 2009. Still have it saved though, because it was really exciting to receive ColdCoffeeshipping art.

Actually, that was explained in the first post but I don't mind repeating!

ColdCoffee is given to them because of their personalities. /Cold/ applies to Paul, as he is very cold toward people and pokemon. /Coffee/ applies to Barry, who is always hyper as if high on coffee. Combined, they are like cold coffee. Ta-da! The name fits the pairing perfectly!

Does that answer your question? :)

Haha, I realize it's been a long time since anyone was on this thread but I found it via Google and just wanted to say, I love this ship <3 It's actually my anime OTP. They're just a dynamic duo, and they fit well together in my opinion.

My contribution... well I did write a story (http://www.fanfiction.net/s/6693833/1/Let_The_Right_One_In) about them, and am in the middle of writing two more. :)
