    one being I my little pony but that's for a different site.
    Great show. That being said, yes fanfiction is hard. And yes bronies will get far more reviews than advanceshippers, because their fandom is exploding right now. I just hope you're not comparing the worth of stories by their reviews.

    And I could go into great detail about why it's easier to write pony fanfiction (there are a whole ton of main characters in a show aimed at a younger audience so the characters have to be very simple, defined and polarized for kids to keep them straight) but I won't because that's not what this thread is about. Hit me up with a PM sometime or find a MLP-themed thread if you want to talk about this more.

    Also I will be voting quite soon but I saw many good advanceshipping fics so good job to all of you! * runs off to celebrate *
    ^That's me. I'll vote, I just need to read the entrees first. I need some coffee and a free night and I'll get that done.

    It's great that we've got the most! Way to go you guys. I might have to go find my old shipping award to use as a banner while the voting's going on. :3

    Excellent news. We still have quite a bit of talent and motivation among us. Speaking of that, I have unfinished stories that I'm supposed to be working on... Thank you for sharing!
    Yeah, that's more like what I was trying to say. Well done, everyponybody.

    @coolcj14 Well, whatever floats your boat.
    But having a lot of reviews doesn't make it a good story off the bat.
    My Little Pony fandom is expanding quite fast. But so did Advanceshipping at one point.
    I think there are lots of good Advanceshipping stories, new or old, doesn't matter.
    I don't look for if the story has a lot of reviews, or if it's new/old.
    I looks for good plot, good story telling, etc.
    But anyway's, it's your opinion. I think personally, the new writers are doing a great job so far!~

    Also for your 'in-character' statement. I personally don't mind if the character is a bit off character.xD
    But for me, there has to be a reason. Example, the story is different, something happened, different setting/life, crossover, etc.
    I mean, imagine if all fics had the same perspective?xD It'd be boring after a while. Mind you, yes some stories are not the best and make Ash/May realllllly out of character. But that's art.~ Everything is unique and different, that's what makes it beautiful.;3 Even if it's fanbase art.~

    Okay sorry, tend to rant on forever.xD

    Hmmm I still have to finish reading a lot of fics, but I have to complete my drawings first. Noooooooooo.; 0 ;
    Anyway, I wish everyone luck!!:3 <33

    It's even harder when you see a potentially good plot but the writing puts you off. It's even harder when your their inspiration. XD

    We had...banners? lol. How long are we talking about? XDDD

    And I have some advanceshipping fanart to show you all! It's been awhile since i posted anything fanart related. XD





    Both images found on pixiv (that japanese site,) don't know who the artist is.

    And this one, i commissioned my good friend Ruby (Endless-Summer181) to do it for me. It's based off my story, "Ringer"

    here's my one-and-a-half award banners:

    http://i39.photobucket.com/albums/e1...t-Improved.png

    http://i39.photobucket.com/albums/e1...Determined.png

    yeah, they're old.

    Anyways, that middle fanart looks more like Misty due to the hair color and the clothes. I like the other two though! I'm interested to read Ringer now, I want to know what scene that is.

    The top one is cute too. That's an intense moment they're sharing there.

    Sorry guys, I didn't mean to sound like I was saying a story is good based on the number of reviews it gets. I was just saying that it became very popular among a few different sites in a very short time. This story is like May's Crush to advanceshippers; everyone knows it and loves it. And as for the "in character" thing I was just stating my opinion, hence the reason why this thread was even made, I didn't mean to offend anyone and I'm sorry if I did. On that note, are there any new ideas going out right now that I could join in?

    I really do like the last fanart you posted though, Endless-Summer181 has always been good from what I remember.

    Maybe its Ash's teen son and the dauighter of Misty/May's twin brother (not Max)? It just reminds me of that for some reason.

    You know what they say, men marry women who remind them of their mothers. May is so much like Delia in terms of personality. If 4Kids were still dubbing the show, and they did some kind of epilogue episode where we see Ash marry May it would be a funny tongue-in-cheek joke if Ash said to May you remind me so much of my mother ;p XD.

    Question Help!!!

    I come to this thread, so I can ask all of you AdvanceShippers....I really hope you can help me.
    Once I found a fanfic which I forgot it's name.The problem is that I can't find it again. I turned the whole Google world upside down and I just can't find it.
    Ok,someone,somewhere,posted a short story in which Ash had earned his last Battle Frontier symbol and everyone should go on their way.I remember May crying on a cliff and talking to Pikachu...after a while Ash hears her,then he starts to walk away but she hears him and follows him. Then there is a romantic scene where they show their feelings to eachother, they both cry, they accept the fact that they need to follow their dreams, then comes the sad moment where Ash gives May a letter.........I remember the first words of it:
    "Dear May,(she was Dear to him and only that mattered to her)" or something like that.
    I just NEED to find it and read it again.

    Well, Ive followed this thread since 2 years ago and I finally decided to join

    Hi there, AdvanceShipping is my 2nd fav Ash pairing after PearlShipping(OTP). Its a pairing that intrigues me. I became a fan of this coupling after seeing Suzu's fanarts and reading through the first thread. I had a question that I wanted to ask regarding AdvanceShipping. Was there really a kiss episode between Ash and May? Ive been hearing these rumors since 2 years ago and even one of my friends admits to haven seen it.

    Great fan art there. Man, this ship brings good memories. I still believe I'm most popular on FF.net for my advanceshipping fics. Two of them still need finishing, but I don't have the ideas for them.

    Anyway @Satoshi<3, love the video. One of the best AMV's I've seen in a while. So creative.

    @Adelaide1994 No. It was just rumour that started after somebody made a really good photoshopped pic onto the internet. It's an old rumour that just doesn't want to die.

    Man, it's been a while everyone. I haven't logged into Serebii for ages! With the rumors of RSE remakes getting stronger, my passion for Pokemon has been renewed! I played BW and DPP but I could never capture the same feelings I had while playing RSE. While it was saving Prof. Birch, beating the twins, or catching Rayquaza, I have yet to experience that feeling of really "being in the game", and I hope the remakes will help there.

    Anyways, along with that comes a passion to write fanfiction. I truly believe that this is the truest, most believable ship ever - Misty seems like more of a big sister, Dawn seems like a little sister, and Iris seems like.. a mentor? Out of all the interactions Ash has had with a female heroine, the ones with May have been the purest, most intimate ones. From basking under the awe of the Millenium Comet, when Ash heroically risked his life to save Manaphy, and the Water Temple and May was clutching her heart, praying in the escape pod, or the many, many times people had called them a couple, they were probably the strongest team of all. We must carry on the legacy of advanceshipping, and make sure that it never dies out.

    "A good friend left me and, I miss her, every day... but I... I know we'll always be friends forever!"

    We can safetly say this about a few things - The Advanced Generation Anime, May as a main character, Hoenn, Brock, but most importantly the golden age of this ship. Let's work to bring that age back to life.

    Your fellow advanceshipper,

    I agree. I believe Hoenn was one of the best pokemon games ever. It just has this different feeling compared to BW and DP. I'm not saying they were bad games but there is just something with Hoenn that the creators have done and haven't done in the others. I hope they keep that same feeling with the remakes.

    Most likely we will have news on the Hoenn remakes after BW2, tbh, i never expected a sequel to BW. I wonder if N will come back? *is super excited.*

    That means your going to finish Aura senses? I love that fic.

    I see Iris as a good friend, she isn't a mentor like Misty is. Her and Ash are pretty much on the same page. Yes, i agree. Ash acted so different with May, he was mature yet funny. In Sinnoh, he was mature, in BW is funny. I love pokemon because there was a mixture of Ash's maturity and his funny lines and actions. I miss that Ash so much.

    Amen.

    That's from movie six? the dubbed version right? silly dubbers, they only added that. It was never mentioned like that in the jap version.

    Haha, this tread always die time to time. Or maybe the AS fanbase here isn't as big like on bulbagarden.
    What makes you say so?

    Well Wuster and midnightjewelz, its understandable that this thread has died down a bit. Sadly, since Haruka's departure into the unknown, lots of AdvanceShippers around here really cant look for a new topic to discuss. Its been nearly 6 years since Haruka left, so its up to the shippers to prolong this thread. I like this thread better than the first one though. There have been really good discussions and I explored the first thread and found the first 350 pages to be a spambox(no offense). Stay strong and continue the activity on here guys . Its up to you shippers to keep this pairing alive. The Pearl thread's activity has gone down a tad since 2010, and even we are hoping to break the shackles. On the other hand, I was thinking about creating a topic for you guys to discuss.

    What episodes in the Advance Generation saga do you think made AdvanceShipping or SatoHaru first blatant in your eyes?

    For me, It would have to be "The Bicker The Better". I have not seen the RAW version of this episode, but I can say that this episode was the first one that instilled the thought of Ash and May together into the heads of viewers. Ash and May fought like a cute couple throughout and I found it weird when Ash actually knew what was going on when Oscar and Andi actually called them a happy couple. It almost made me believe that he wasnt all that dense.

    Yes that is true but that doesn't give anyone the reason to lose hope and die. And May didn't really leave for the unknown, she is still in Johto in the grand festival. If she won or not is the question so while May is still out there going to furfill her dream means there will be a chance for Ash and May to cross paths one day; when it will happen is anyone's guess. Misty has been gone for nearly 9 and the pokeshippers are still strong so we shouldn't find any excuse to give up. I mean (no offence to CS) but advanceshipping is a little more alive since there haven't been any new hints for CS since '06. Also BW1 showed May's wooden figurine she gave to Ash so even if she might not make a BW apperence the writers haven't forgotten her, and they have done that with the use of the gift she gave to Ash and Ash sees its importance in it.

    I'll shut up now. XD

    What episodes in the Advance Generation saga do you think made AdvanceShipping or SatoHaru first blatant in your eyes?

    The episodes where Andi and Oscar (i think) else called May and Ash a couple. They even said when two people work really well together they will eventually fall in love with one another. It was a advanceshippers dream episodes because it lasted for the whole half hour. I think i couldn't stop smileing. And a few episodes after that, the Donphan episodes and Bulbasaur epi (with all the other grass types) just made me so happy. Oh, why can't it happen again?!

    I agree, when i heard Ash (and May) yelled "We are not a couple!" I was like 'Ash knows what a couple means?' I think it was the first time i was shocked to see that Ash knew what a couple meant and was slightly convinced he wasn't as dense as he is in BW. (and its annoying me that he is like his old Kanto self all over again.)

    Hey you all, certainly been a while since I've came here ^^;;

    I think I started losing faith in this shipping after DP. I was seriously thinking that Ash would be at home and that all the previous characters (including Dawn) would arrive a Ash's house and visit and THEN he leaves for Unova. But I was mistaken and that was probably the first time I thought "May isn't gonna come back".
    At least he had the Teddiursa figurine on his most prized valuables. Shows how much May means to Ash. Not only that, but it shows how the writers haven't COMPLETELY forgotten about May. And for a bonus, Ash didn't place his ribbon next to his things so we can ASSUME that Ash still has his half ribbon with him ^ O ^
    On the whole dying out of the forums, sadly whenever I see this place now it's just become so....dead. Heck, at one point I even thought about completely abandoning this forum (not the shipping, just this forum) and just let it die out eventually. True, sadly, and I'm completely ashamed for having such thoughts.
    But as I see people still not giving up and that make me think how strong they are :3
    So the people who remained strong and dedicated to this forum, I thank you super duper much.
    And @Adelaide1994 thanks for hearing that little part on the status of Pearlshipping's forum. It helped me realize that we are not the only ship struggling. Heck, I can't even imagine what the Contestshippers are going through, seeing as both characters don't necessarily have a status. May showed up back in '08, but not much hinting at Contestshipping (unless you count that Drew was watching the Wallace Cup o.O).

    Okay enough of the sad mumbo jumbo!! Topic time!!

    What episodes in the Advance Generation saga do you think made AdvanceShipping or SatoHaru first blatant in your eyes?

    Well seeing as I didn't start watching AG until the very end, I'd probably say I guess Date Expecttions. When I saw Ash become so serious and dedicated to having May follow her dream, and that he would even take over her responsibilities, I thought that something was up. I've never seen Ash so mature in my life and seeing that he was willing to risk his life (when the Donphan attacked) for this girl, who I barely knew at the time, made me question their relationship status. I was thinking "I don't think he would have done that for Misty (I seriously can't see that happening), so this girl must be very special to him". :33
    Although if I started watching AG from the very beginning, I'd definitely have to agree with The Bicker the Better. Plus, with the next two episodes being Advanceshippy you can't really argue with that ;PP
    For me, It would have to be "The Bicker The Better". I have not seen the RAW version of this episode, but I can say that this episode was the first one that instilled the thought of Ash and May together into the heads of viewers. Ash and May fought like a cute couple throughout and I found it weird when Ash actually knew what was going on when Oscar and Andi actually called them a happy couple. It almost made me believe that he wasnt all that dense.
    Wow I thought the same!! I was thinking, "Okay Ash is gonna be all 'whats a couple' and everyone's gonna facepalm or faceplant xD" but no, he ACTUALLY knew it!?! :O
    Quite honestly, I felt he was probably the most mature/least dense during AG/BF(maybe to swoon a little girl in red ;DD)

    Guess while we're on the topic of hints, which I guess this question could be the same answer ^3^

    What was your favorite Advanceshipping moment?

    *is prepared that everyone's brains will explode ;P*
    I'm not dead.... Just unavailable :'(

    Special Thanks to Ampy for making the wonderful banner. ^^

    Uhm, hello? Anyone here? Hi! It's me, remember? I originally wanted to reserve my username here, but decided to join in on the discussion anyway.

    What episodes in the Advance Generation saga do you think made AdvanceShipping or SatoHaru first blatant in your eyes?
    Definitely those vague and unidentifiable episodes of AG that I saw when I was like 3… no doubt XD. Once I actually gained a consciousness in the Pokémon fandom, I'd have to say it was the early episodes a lot for me, and The Bicker The Better only doubled it for me. Unlike some, Movie 9 didn't do much for me, possibly because I was too deeply wedged into the fandom (to the point where I am now) when I first fully absorbed it for its worth. Before I watched it in the past months, I had only seen it on TV once. It really kind of knocked my imagination for their voices aside when I watched it, and I think Jack could've been a lot nicer, and a lot less arrogant – acting like he's someone else ;).
    So do I remind you of
    Someone you've never met,
    A lonely silhouette;
    And do I remind you of
    Some place you wanna be,
    So far out of reach;

    Hi fellow Advanceshippers! How is everyone?

    I haven't been here in a long time, but schools been taking its toll on me.

    However, all this talk about Advanceshipping being dead really saddened me. So, I thought to come by and try to help the cause and bring it to life and maybe have the discussion pick up some!

    Haha, I remember when I was a kid, I immediately thought they were good together when I first watched the AG series (first episode, haha). Well, in all seriousness, I have to say that I agree with many who have said "The Bicker the Better" is the episode that made it first seem quite obvious. However, I'd like to point out that it was the second season in the AG series that first gave a LOT of the more blatant moments (or in my opinion, the best ones).


    What was your favorite Advanceshipping moment?

    I think my head really will explode, since I don't have a favorite, haha. I pretty love every moment. xD Anything with Advanceshipping is my favorite.
