I think we all go through shipping fazes, and as a multishipper I can say that it's true but it taught me to remain tolerate and respectful towards other ships. Advance is one of the ships I care about the most and I think things like this thread and talking to advanceshippers keep the shipping spirit alive. Every time I read an advanceshipping fic I get overloaded with nostalgia. I got a lot on my kindle. The weird thing for me now is that even though I'm a multishipper, I've gotten so used to advanceshipping is that any pokemon fic I write feels empty and incomplete to me without advanceshipping.
