Chapter 19 – Mixed Together
The blazing sun bore down strongly on the sandy beach, like a Cynadquil heating the ground with its flamethrower, as a group of Wingull screeched out their names while flying high in the sky. Ash stirred and slowly opened his eyes to find that he was laying flat against the baking sand and the tide brushed against his ankles. He closed his eyes again to try and wake himself, but his muscles were barely responding to him. He groaned as he pushed himself up into a sitting position and rubbed the back of his aching head. He looked around him to try and work out his bearings, but all he could see was a long path stretching along a wide cliff and disappearing around a bend. Beside him, he saw May sprawled out along side Max and neither were moving. He lightly shook them both and they moaned in agony as they slowly responded by sitting up.
“Where are we?” May asked and looked around.
Max took the PokeNav out of his bag (luckily it was waterproof) and tried to find their location. When the device beeped its response, Max gasped and shouted out his disbelief.
“No way! We can’t be there!” Max shouted.
“What? Where are we?” May asked him urgently.
“We’re on the other side of Ever Grande City!” Max replied, his eyes wide and still staring at the small screen.
“Woah? What do you mean we’re on the other side?” Ash asked in surprise.
“Well, the main entrance to Ever Grande City is here,” Max indicated on the tiny digital map as May and Ash looked over his shoulder. “And we are here, on the other side which has the edge of the huge mountain and the narrow path walking around it to the other side!”
“So if we follow this path then it should lead us to the main entrance and towards a Pokemon Centre?” May questioned.
“Let’s see, yeah it should do, and that’s also where the registration point is.”
“But what about Brock and Misty?” Ash asked in a panicky tone.
“Are there any possible islands that they could have been washed up on instead of here?”
Max consulted the map once again.
“No, that island that we stayed at yesterday wasn’t marked on the map, so it’s possible that they are on an unmarked island if they are on another one. But the closest place they could have landed is an island called Peach Isle.”
“How far away is it from here?”
“Seventy-three miles?!?!” Ash shouted out in disbelief.
May’s eyes narrowed as she looked over her brother’s shoulder.
“Max, it says 13, miles.” She stated sarcastically.
“Oh yeah, urr… sorry about that.”
“And you call yourself a technology fanatic.” May said while sighing and burying her face in her hand.
“Hey! I’m a Pokenatic who just happens to be mad about Pokemon and also a future gym leader!” Her brother retaliated in anger.
“Pika.” Pikachu sighed as they argued but also in relief that the island wouldn’t be as far away as they had expected.
“Guys, stop it.” Ash tried to reason calmly. “We need to find Brock and Misty, they could be in trouble.”
Both of the siblings stopped arguing when Ash said this and looked down at the sand below them. They apologised and looked blankly behind Ash to see all of Misty’s water Pokemon coming out of the water and looking a bit dazed. They walked up the beach towards them and collapsed in exhaustion as the friends moved towards them to check if they were going to be OK. Corsola came out of the water last and was squealing weakly and pointing at an object that was floating on the surface of the water. Ash’s eyes widened as he saw something red bobbing on the surface and started to sink as he ran into the water quickly to stop it from falling any further. His heart sank when he realised it was Misty’s bag. Then his heart raced when he had an idea. He picked the bag out of the ocean as the excess water trickled back into the sea and he walked back up the beach to where May and Max were sitting.
“Is that…?” May questioned but couldn’t finish her sentence in case it led to complications and a fearful answer.
“Yeah, it’s Misty’s.” Ash finished in a low tone, his eyes hidden behind the brim of his cap. “But what I was thinking is that maybe… because her bag washed up on the shore she might be fairly close by.”
Ash didn’t change his tone or fill it with any hope. His voice remained low and toneless to hide his emotions at the possibility of losing both his best friends – the two friends who he had started his journey with and would have hoped to end it with them too. So far since Misty had returned, he had almost lost her for good and he couldn’t bare to think what life would be like without her spunky, friendly, calm attitude and just being full of life and energy. He seemed to feel more confident in himself when she was around and she had always looked out for him when he was down or in trouble and she had always offered him her friendship. But now…
“Yeah, Ash, you could be right! Maybe we should follow the path up and over to the other side where the Pokemon Centre is to see if Nurse Joy has seen Brock or Misty.” Max said, now excited that they could be on a lead and the fact that they could soon be reunited with their friends.
He grabbed his backpack and ran towards the stone steps.
“Come on!” He shouted and urged them to follow.
Ash recalled Misty’s Pokemon to their balls and replaced them back into her backpack, which he swung over his shoulder.
“Ash, are you OK?” May asked unsurely as Ash had his back to her and wouldn’t allow her to see his face.
“Yeah, I’m fine. Let’s go.”
And with that, he determinedly set off behind Max up the steps to hopefully find his friends, trying to outrun and dislodge the discomforting thoughts of what might have happened to them.
“Hey, come on, rise and shine sleepy head.” A soft voice cooed to his friend as he gently shook her to try and get a response.
Brock had wrapped a blanket around Misty and had managed to dislodge the water that had filled her lungs, which she had just coughed up. She was sitting up right and spluttering as he handed her a bottle of water that she took gratefully to calm her throat. When she finished, she focused on his kind face smiling at her and she groaned and held her head.
“Where are we?” she asked and rubbed the aching pain that resided inside her head.
“I dunno. On some island I guess. How are you feeling?”
Brock chuckled at her remark and busied himself with the fire and stew that he was preparing for them.
“Who are you cooking all that for?” Misty asked as her stomach rumbled after catching the delicious smell.
“Well, I thought that if Ash, May and Max are around, they might follow their noses and find us.” He replied calmly as he stirred the contents of the pot.
“That’s a great idea, Brock.” Misty said happily but then her face fell instantly. “Wait a minute, you mean they’re not here?”
Brock frowned at her.
“No, we all got separated in the storm when we tried to find you.”
“Where are they?!” Misty said, her voice more panicky than before.
She attempted to stand up but her head felt dizzy and a haze clouded over her eyes until she could see no more. Brock reached out for her and she held on to him for support as he gently lowered her back to the ground.
“Misty, you really need to rest.” Brock said soothingly.
“But, Brock! We have to find them! They could be in trouble or lost or-”
“Misty calm down! If we go out looking for them and their looking for us then we could end up travelling for days until we finally find them. It will be easier for us to stay here until we find out where we are, and then we’ll try and find them. But first you need to get some of your strength back.”
Misty didn’t resist when he pushed her back down and pulled the blanket back over her. She watched the flames as her eyelids slowly closed, thinking about Ash and how much she missed him. She hoped that he and the others were OK and not hurt.
“Why do I feel so weak at the moment?”
“I think it’s because you still haven’t fully recovered from your accident. Just remember that it’s only been a couple of days since you came round, and I guess all that swimming you did to find everybody must have really drained you. I think if you get some rest though, you should be fine.”
She smiled to the back of his head before slowly drifting off into a quiet slumber, occasionally hearing the clunk of Brock’s spoon against the pot.
“HOW MUCH FURTHER!?!” May screamed at her brother who had been navigating and had not done a good job of it.
For a journey that they had predicted would take no longer than an hour, they had already walked for three and were still no closer to the Pokemon Centre and civilisation.
“I’m convinced that we have past that tree, five times already.” Ash said annoyed, starting at a tree, which was awkwardly shaped like a “W”.
“I think we’ve been walking around in circles.” May said in a huff and folded her arms.
“Hey! Is that a signpost up there?” Max said and pointed to an old wooden post leaning slightly to the left, attempting to distract his sister and friend from their moaning.
They walked up to it and read the signs that they hoped would lead them in the right direction.
“Let’s see, Hyliansage Walk is to the right, Kuthu Track is to the left, and the path we’ve just walked along is called Amzerat Road. Oh, and going along Kuthu Track will lead us to Kaiviti Creek. Max? Where do we go from here?”
“Err… I think we’ve got to go along Hyliansage Walk, that should take us to higher ground and out of these woods anyway.”
“Is there any particular roads that we should look for?” May questioned her brother.
“Yeah, we wanna look out for Gladdecease Walk coz that will take us right to the Pokemon Centre.”
“I have to say Roo, I simply adore travelling around these woods before the tournaments start.” A voice said behind them.
The three friends turned around to see an elderly couple walking behind them, arm in arm and cooing lovingly to each other. They looked at the group who were staring at them in surprise at seeing other life forms.
“Oh, hello my dears, are you lost?” The old woman asked kindly.
She was quite short compared to who they presumed was her husband but they both beamed down at them warmly.
“Urr… yeah. Do you know where we are and where the Pokemon Centre is?” Ash asked them unsurely.
“The Day-Care Centre?” The woman tried to repeat as she held her ear out to listen. “I’m sorry young man but I’m afraid that that is near Rustbourgh, you’ll have to cross the ocean to get to there.”
“Huh? Oh no, I said the Pokemon Centre!” Ash said slightly louder as he emphasised the last three words of his sentence.
“Oh, I’m sorry. If you follow Kuthu Road then I believe it will lead you there. Is that right Roo?”
“Roo?” May asked unsurely.
“Oh my husband silly! It’s short for Ronald but we never liked the name Ron much.”
The woman eyed Ash and May suspiciously.
“You two haven’t seen a LuvDisc around these parts have you?” she asked them sinisterly.
May and Ash looked at her wide-eyed and stared back nervously as she examined them.
“Excuse me?” May asked. “No we haven’t. Only our friend’s one who we happen to be looking for.”
The woman smiled at them fondly.
“Oh, that’s good then. I was going to say that she’s too young for you sonny, you’ll want someone your own age. I’d have thought you’d be walking around the Romantic Gardens with a young lass about your age.”
“Huh? What do you mean?” Ash said, totally perplexed.
“Oh no, don’t worry he already has a girlfriend and it’s not me!” May said, shaking her hands about to try and establish the fact that she was not with Ash.
“What do you mean the Romantic Gardens, miss?” Max piped up.
“Oh, the Romantic Gardens are what you are walking around now.” Roo cut in fondly before his wife could answer. “They are located at the back of Ever Grande City, and couples often walk around them to admire the serene and pleasant views that calm the mind and inflict romance upon all couples who pass by. Everyone who walks around them hope to see a LuvDisc as they are the symbol of love and affection and are known for appearing before loving couples or people it knows that are in love but won’t admit it. My wife and I have already seen three as we’ve passed through the gardens.”
“My favourite legend in these gardens is of the Shiny Lapras that appears in the opaque lagoon with the cascading waterfall. No one has ever seen it apart from couples who are truly in love and would sacrifice themselves for their love. It’s like a dream to see it but as we are old now, our love has probably reached its limit and we are not worthy enough for the Lapras to appear. It is now known as a humble water spirit that calms the tides of love and brings happiness secretly as it travels through the waters of the world. It’s very romantic.”
“That’s so sweet.” May said passionately. “We should really see if it would work for Ash and Misty.”
When she realised what she had said, she covered her hand over her mouth as Ash looked at her with a confused expression.
“What did you say?” Ash asked blankly, not hearing the whole of what she had said.
“Oh, nothing, nothing, I said nothing, just talking to myself you know!” she laughed nervously and sweatdropped.
“That the first sign of madness.” Max muttered under his breath.
“Anyway, if you want to get to the Pokemon Centre, I suggest you take Hyliansage Walk.” The woman finished.
“But a minute ago you said we should take Kuthu Road.” Max stated informatively. “Which one should we take then?”
“Oh dear, now you really have confused me.” The woman said while scratching her head.
“Take Hyliansage.” The man whispered to Max. “Alright my dear, let’s be going then.”
He escorted his wife away from the group and waved to them before they set off down Hyliansage Walk, with Ash’s mind on whether Brock and Misty would be alright.
Misty slowly opened her eyes and once again focused on the back of Brock’s head, which was hovering over another pot of stew.
“Have you seen them yet?” She asked sleepily as she pushed herself up into a sitting position and rubbed her eyes.
“Feeling better?” Brock asked her.
“Yep, and ready to find the others!”
“Uh-uh, you’re not going anywhere Misty.”
“Coz you’ve got company! And it’s rude to disappear when you have company around!” A female voice shouted and looked down at Misty while holding a purple mug with steaming contents.
The girl had dark purple hair which separated down her face into equal lengths on either side, and she wore an Electabuzz baseball cap with a matching outfit – the unmisable bright yellow, white and black striped logo and she was holding a mini baseball bat in her other hand.
“Casey?” Misty asked in surprise.
“Hiya, Misty! Great to see ya again!”
“What are you doing here?”
“Oh, me and Shawn decided that we wanted to look around the Romantic Gardens together, we’ve seen two LuvDisc already!”
“Shawn? What do you mean you’ve seen two LuvDisc?”
A young boy with dark hazel hair peered out from behind his girlfriend. His cheeks were tinted a slight pink as he looked at Misty, and he turned even redder as he bowed his head.
“Hi Misty.” He murmured quietly.
“He’s such the cutest little sweet pea I’ve ever known!” Casey cooed as she squeezed the life out of Shawn.
Misty smiled at them.
“It’s seems that you two are getting on really well then.” She said kindly.
“Casey said that we are at Ever Grande City.” Brock said informatively to Misty as he poured out his stew into separate bowls. “She said we’re not really that far from the Pokemon Centre, so when you’re ready, we could go there and see if anyone has seen Ash, May or Max.”
“How did you find us?” Misty asked Casey.
“Followed our noses.” She replied and winked at her. “When we could smell Brock’s delicious cooking, we thought it might be a buffet parlour and then we found out it was you and Brock.”
Misty laughed at her and accepted Brock’s bowl gratefully. Her food was extremely rich and creamy, but her mind instantly turned to Ash as she thought of her food. She hoped he was safe and not hurt but most of all, she wanted to be re-united with him soon.
“So yeah, the legend goes that if a LuvDisc pops out in front of you when you are part of a couple then you are really in love and it will bring you happiness.” Casey explained to Brock and interrupted Misty’s thoughts.
“Have you seen any girls about?” he asked Casey anxiously.
“Err… yeah, they are plenty about looking for Mr.Right. Why?”
“Because maybe one’s Miss Right for me!” he said in a dreamy tone as his eyes filled with hearts.
Misty sighed as she placed her bowl down on the floor.
“Which way is it to the Pokemon Centre, Casey?” Misty asked.
“Oh, Shawn and I will take you there, we were going to head back anyway to get a bite to eat but we’re going to see an Electabuzz game that they are showing in one of the Stadiums today.” She replied.
They packed away the camp equipment and followed Casey and Shawn out through the beach and into the woods. Casey pulled out a small map from her pocket and observed it quickly.
“So how is your Meganium, Casey?” Misty asked to start another conversation as they walked.
“Oh it’s doing great! Shawn’s got a Bayleef too and they really seem to like each other. They’re 100% in love just like us! And when we were lost in the dark a while ago, Shawn caught a Larvitar and he thinks it’s going to evolve into a Tyranitar really soon!”
“That’s great. And how are you doing, Shawn?” Misty said and smiled down at Shawn who blushed and averted his gaze.
“Err… well I battled this boy a while ago who trained Eevees. He said he wanted to be an Elite Eevee Master. He had all the different forms and he was really powerful.”
“And did you beat him?”
“Yeah! But for some reason, he had this Gardevoir who could use a really powerfully metal coat. He said that it was his starter Pokemon before he decided to train Eevee’s but he put up a good fight.”
Misty sighed and went into a daydream.
“As a Water Trainer, I would love a Vaporeon.” She said dreamily. “The strongest Girl trainer from Cerulean City and the future World’s Greatest Water Pokemon Master vows to one day capture a Vaporeon!” she shouted passionately and made a fist in front of her.
“That was a random.” Casey said as she looked at Misty and then smirked. “I want to be the Queen of Yellow Pokemon!”
“Well, I want to be the player of all players, a Pokeplayer who rules the battles of Pokemon as a game, winning every match I play and becoming on of the Elite Pokemon Trainers in the World!” Shawn said, now joining in their word play on their dreams.
“Yep, and I want to be the Best Pokemon Breeder.” Brock finished simply as they reached a fork in the road. “OK, Casey, Pantalaimonne Road, or Polaris Creek, your choice.”
“Pantalaimonne Road!” she shouted happily. “This one connects up with Hyliansage Walk and that goes straight to the Pokemon Centre.”
“Oh man, we’ve been walking along this road for hours.” Ash said weakly as he moved slowly along the road with his back arched and a fallen face.
“How much further?” May moaned to her brother.
“It shouldn’t be too far, we’ll be passing Pantalaimonne Road in a minute and it’s the next one after that.” Max replied after switching the PokeNav off.
They heard laughter coming from the road up ahead and listened carefully.
“That sounds like…” May stated, trying to identify the voice.
“Misty!” Ash shouted and ran up the road to the bend with renewed strength.
“Brock!” He heard Max shouted behind him.
“Ash?” a female voice responded.
“Misty!” He shouted and turned the bend so sharply that he almost fell over but the excitement of seeing his friend again filled his heart with joy.
“Ash!” she said and ran towards him.
She surprised him by jumping into his arms and sending him flying backwards with a hug. She let go of him with her cheeks tinted a pink colour as Shawn looked on in surprise and something clicked in his mind.
Is there someone else you like?
Yeah, is there?
Well… that is…. Urrr….
There is isn’t there!?!
He smiled at them as Misty, Ash and Brock stared at each other and took in the fact that they had found each other safe and sound. Once exchanges of how grateful they were to find each other once again finished, Misty introduced Ash, May and Max to Casey and Shawn.
They agreed that as soon as they reached the Pokemon Centre they would all sit down together and discuss each other stories and catch up on old times with Casey. They didn’t realise that they had already reached the down as they walked along the path and past a large wooden sign that read: Grande Old Downs.
End Chapter 19
Water Spirit (that’s me! Lol sorry, I couldn’t resist!)
Queen of Pokemon!
OK there you have it. Just for the record, it's over 10 pages so that would explain the time it took to write! (didn't realise this at first)
Please let me know what you think of it!
Wow! This is a great fic, I hope it lasts for more than 3 chapters, anyway looking forward to the next chapter.
Yay! I found me!!
“So how is your Meganium, Casey?”
Anyway, WONDERFUL!! It was so cute with the hug and everything, and I really didn't expect Casey to show up, but great! She's one of my favorite minor characters. ^ ^
And I like her Meganium even more!! LOL, just kidding.
I couldn't find any mistakes at all, any, so that's good!!
I think I found everyone's names!
Gee, I wonder how I fit in this chapter...?Originally Posted by Water Spirit
Maybe I'm one of the streets...nah, couldn't be!
Gosh...I'd worry about Ash's sanity if he didn't realize what May was starting to talk about there...Originally Posted by Water Spirit
Yay for putting Casey in the story! She's a very energetic person...btw, did you invent Shawn's English name, or did you get it from some other source?Originally Posted by Water Spirit
Aww...you used the hoso scene! Yay! And now Shawn's figured it out too. Another comment...the 'Ash!' 'Misty!' stuff seemed familiar...as in Forest Grumps type of familliar...was it intentional?Originally Posted by Water Spirit
Roo and his wife were hillarious! Roo's wife was like a new sort of pokeshipper, wasn't she? 'Find some girl your own age' she says, hmm? How about Misty?
Very cool chapter! It gave me a lot to write: one of the longest reviews I've written in months! So just do what you like with this story; 's all good!
- Duck! Psy yai yai yai psy yai yai yai psy yai yai yai duck duck duck duck psyduck psyduck psyduck psyduck psy yai yai yai yai duck psy!
*sweatdrops* Psyduck liked the chapter a lot too. Keep up the fabulous work! Later!
Guess what? I started reading the new chapter, before you PM'd me. So there's a good chance I'm the first to respond. He he he!
Anyways, I'm glad to see Ash and Misty are reunited.
Also, nice move putting Casey in with her boyfriend. Very intresting that something is happening between them. That should get that kid off Misty, huh? If that doesn't work, Ash should do for the job.
I liked how you used my name, pretty much how I came up with the nick in the first place. However, my dream with Pokemon is to be the best at Double battles. Found I had a gift for it when I played Coloseum.
Anyways, keep up the good work.
Hope you have the next chapter up soon.
See ya then.
Yay!! Found my reference. "Blazing suns". That was really creative putting references to all of the reviewers WS.
It was really cute when Ash and Misty were reunited and Misty jumped into Ash's arms. Too bad they fell over coz they could have had a really romantic moment.
It was great to see Casey star with her boyfriend from the Hoso. It added a bit more to the chapter.
Well, now i am very excited for the next chapter. I can't wait to see what Ash and Misty do.
WOw, great chapter! I found my name :P kinda hard to miss there and it was great how they were told about that lapras..maybe they'll see it later in another chapter...
Wonderful chapter WS! And I found my name. ^^ I loved how you incorporated all of our names into the story. I also loved how you made Shawn and Casey show as characters, and how you added that part of the Hoso when Misty jumped into Ash hugging him. I think that was really romantic and sweet, and when they broke apart blushing. =) I also love how they are in the romantic gardens and how true couples encounter LuvDiscs, which already happened to Ash and Misty. Also, the part about the Shiny Lapras brought some foreshadowing into the story. I also loved the part about how the old lady said may was too young for Ash and May said he already has a girl friend. I thought that was really funny. All in all, awsome chapter and I can't wait for the next one! ^^

"Pantalaimonne Road" huh??
^_^ I like it! *hug*
I haven't much more to say... this chapter is so good as the others,
and like L100Meganium said, it's just impossible find any mistakes at all!
I could write many things more, but my English is not one of the bests...
*sit down and cries*(but is happy for reading the awsome fic that Water Spirt wrote)
Whoa! What a great chapter. Probobly one of the best in the whole story. I found "me" to.
Well, the story with a Romantic Garden and LuvDisc was soo sweet and when May almost breaked the secret I was wondering how Ash and Max would respond. Max "that the first sign of madness" line was great.
Caseys return was very good, she is one of my favorite characters beside the maingroupmembers.
The reunion (Ash and Mistys) was probobly one of the best parts in the whole story (the only part which might be better are the picture-part when Ash and Misty look and like the same picture in one of the earlier chapters).
What more can I say... the best chapter so far, keep writing. I can´t wait for the next chapter! But of course, don´t feel yourself under pressure, we will all wait patient for the next chapter. I give the chapter 9/10 points (I save the 10/10 to the final ). You´re the best WS!

What's poppin' Water Spirit! I really loved this chapter. It was really worth the wait. That scene with Misty jumping into Ash's arms was really cute. I loved every part of the chapter, especially the way you incorporated my name. 73 miles? I was dying laughing when i read that. thanks alot. Hope to see your next chapter really soon cuz the excitement is just building...lol.
This was one of the best chapters ever. I did like how you used my name. It was pretty funny seeing an old guy being called roo. Thnx for including my name in it. As always the flow was perfect. I felt it actually went smoother than usual. Can't wait for the new story and the new/final chapters you have in store for your dying fans.
AHHH! THAT WAS SOOO GOOD WATER SPIRIT!!! When I saw your PM..I ran to this thread to read it...even though i wasnt planning on staying long since i had lots of homework to do XD. I saw about the names thing and I skipped to the end to see if my name was there before reading it. I saw it right after your name and i was like YAY *throws hands into the air* ^^ ehehhe. THough I didnt know what you can do with my name. I mean what can you do with sweet pea? I thought it would have been the word "sweet" since it is part of my name. That was smart how you used it for Shawn. I would have never thought of that...though i didnt know Shawn would come in this chapter.
Speaking of Shawn...he isnt the guy from the hoso right? The one where he likes Misty but she didnt return the feelings. I would have never thought it was him until some of the others said that it was. I dont see him as Shawn though but oh well. While I was reading it...I thought he liked Misty cause he was always blushing when he saw her or when she smiled at him and he seem shocked when she hugged Ash. That was a REALLY cute scene by the way =]. Anyways, I didnt think Shawn was the hoso guy so I thought he just liked Misty when he saw how beautiful and nice she was. I thought he still like her till he saw her hug Ash and realize that she likes someone else. So is he really the guy from the hoso?
For stars lie hidden in your soul.
For every dream precedes the goal.
+:: Ralph Vaull Starr ::+
Yep, an Elite Eevee master, that's me
XD!“Hey! I’m a Pokenatic who just happens to be mad about Pokemon and also a future gym leader!”
Compared to Max, not what I was expecting. In fact, I can't stop laughing.... Ahem, anyway, what can I say about this fic: great, awesome, awesome, awesome, awesome *breaks record player*. OK, I think I should start running before rotten tomatoes are thrown at me for being completely dumb in this review, but before I do, I shall say this. I can't wait for the next chapter and your next fic, and... uh-oh * tomatoes begin to be thrown. Okay gotta run, awesome fic, can't think of much else to say bye! *runs from tomatoes*
EDIT: I wasn't making fun of Max there if you thought that, sorry.

I found mine! ^__^ "My favorite legend in these gardens is of the Shiny Lapras" That was an awesome idea to put everyone's names into the chapter. Very creative. Plus your chapter was excellant as always. I can picture Max getting lost and May getting mad at him. That was funny. Can't wait to see your next chapter!!!
Great Chapter! My names kinda hard to miss! nice touch,
WOW!!! 16 reviews already?!?! Thank guys!!!! I have a feeling that this response post is going to be pretty long. Thanks to everyone who has reviewed so far and I'm glad that you like it!
Elemental Charizam: Thank you! Yep, I think I'll have at least another three chapters out of it for sure, possibly more.
L100M: Yep! That's you! and I also put in 100% which connected to you too! Thanks for your review! ^_^
gladdecease: Thank you! Hmmm.... I wonder, did I put your name as a street name? Yeah, I made Shawn's name up for a particular reason that was based on the fun I had with putting everyone's name in *coughs* Shawn1036902 *coughs*, I was originally going to call him two unmentionable names *hums to self* and then I thought it would be cool to call him Shawn and it just stayed. *smiles* I love it when people look for the secret yet not obvious hints that I put in. Yeah, it was based a little bit on Forest Grumps and it really seemed to fit the scene along with a few touches of my own. And yeah, Roo's wife is an 'I know nothing about Misty but she is definately the right person for you even though I have never met her' Pokeshipper so yeah, she's an unintentional one and she was great to write about.
pokeplayer984: I think yours, along with GOD. and AnimeFanatic73, were probably the hardest to incorporate into the story! But I managed and it was great finding places to put everyone. ^_^ I'm glad that you liked it!
Blazing Charmander: Thank you! And the thing is, I'm excited to see the next chapter too! As soon as I get these nagging ideas out of my head and onto paper I will be extremely happy coz the next three chapters are going to be..... interesting.... What's the opposite to writer's block? Free flow! XD If I'm not carefully though, I'm going to forget them so I'll get them on paper asap! Actually, at the bottom of the Word document that I've typed the fic (now on page 135!) I have at least two pages that are labelled future ideas. Hehe.
Dark Tyranitar: Thanks for your review! Did you notice that I included both parts of your name? Lapras? Seeing it in future chapters? Maybe....
Thanks Bayleef! ^_^
Pantalaimonne: I'm glad you liked it! ^_^ Aww... I don't mind if your English isn't very good! What you wrote in your review is perfect... are you being modest? *hugs* Thanks for your review.
Amzerat: Thank you! Wow! You really think it's one of the best? Thank you! And I'm glad you liked it. It's OK, pressure works for me - I'm kinda getting used to it. I'm hoping to write most of Chapter 20 today coz I'm going to be busy all week-end with H/W (couldn't be bothered to do it today) and they decided to give us loads this week.
AnimeFanatic73: I'm glad that you liked it. Did you also notice that I managed to fit in fanatic? I wasn't sure how I was going to include Anime, but Fanatic73 seemed to fit in fine. ^_^ I'll try and get it up soon!
~roo~: I'm sorry! *hugs* I was originally going to put you as a handsome young man with a dashing young strawberry blonde XD but it seemed funnier with an older couple and I could make it more humorous. I'm sorry. But I'm glad that you liked the chapter and thanks for your review.
xspx: lol, your name was quite easy to put in coz I've used the expression 'sweet pea' a couple of times! And how was I supposed to forget you silly? You're always so eager to read all of my chapters, I'd be a bit of a stupid author (oooo, I like that title XD) if I didn't realise how much it meant to you, and how much your support means to me. So you can guarentee that I would put your name in! And thanks for always being there! Yeah, Shawn is the guy from the Hoso - it was a pun on Shawn1036902's name and I guess I should have made it a bit more clearer that it was him, but that quote at the end which has appeared a few times in the Pokeshipping thread, I thought would hopefully clarify that it was definately him. Sorry if this caused confusion for you.
Elite Eevee: You're welcome! ^_^
Pokenatic: No one in this thread is going to throw rotten tomatoes at you coz I won't allow it! Actually, I wasn't 100% sure how I was going to connect you to Max but then it just seemed to fit in that sentence and I didn't even reaslise it!
Shiny Lapras: Thank you! I'm glad that you liked it. Do you wanna know that your name is going to become relevant to what might happen later in the fic?
OK, like I said before, Chapter 20 is in progress and will hopefully make its debut on the weekend. I accidently found out today when my server was so slow that Fate and Destiny of Friends is the second highest fic to receive the highest amount of replies and reviews in the whole of the fanfiction area in Serebii.net! Can I just say a BIG THANK YOU to everyone who has made this happen, and I am so grateful to you. I never dreamed that this fic would do so well, considering it is my first, and I was only doing it for fun at first which then turned into a passion and an addiction to keep writing and put my ideas on here. THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
And if you haven't read or reviewed, please do! I would love to know what you think of it!
You deserve it WS! Hope ya new one will de just as popular! (and i'm sure it will be!)
A couple of words...
I thought that that was really creative, and *sniff* everyone else took the good comments... Meanies j/k
But the people just popped out.. that was kinda wierd...
Other than that eensy little thing, the chapter was really good. And I got the PM... when are creating your new stories thread?
Gewd job again again again again again!
MetalGardevoir-the amorphus, steel, phsycic type wonder!
extremely brilliant, i loved it well done, couldn't find me...

Thanks Cyndaquil! I wonder if we could have a party here? I'll ask.
MetalGardevoir: Thank you! I'm going to creat the thread once I've finished this fic. As soon as the last chapter is posted the Prologue of Sacrifice for a Dream is going up. ^_^ BTW, did anyone notice that I put Sacrifice For a Dream into Chapter 19? Sly aren't I? But if you find it let me know.
GOD.: Thanks. Can't find your name? Check that last three words of the chapter I know that coz I've just written your name in Chapter 20! So I know its there!
Thanks, and if anyone hasn't reviewed yet, please do! I always love to hear what you think of it! ^_^
Here it is! Quite easy to find (Once you know it's there)sacrifice themselves for their love. It’s like a dream
