    Holy s*** on a s*** sandwich! Hunter's back? And alive??
    What song or songs do you think describe AdvanceShipping the best?
    How about "Can't Fight This Feeling" by REO Speedwagon?

    Find the lyrics, you'll be pleasantly surprised.

    Be it the first time I log in for months and the one thing that caught my attention is Hunter showing up. Had me at hello. (heehee) Thought I was the one that vanished without a trace. I feel nostalgic now.

    What do you think Delia's impression of May as a potential daughter-in-law is? Conversely, what do you think Norman and Caroline's impressions of Ash as a son-in-law would be? Would they approve of Ash and May as an item?

    Ash's mother will take anybody she likes, especially May. It'd be cool if she does think of May as a potential daughter-in-law. I know I would a little more than the rest, but that's just a little more. May's parents are possibly most familiar with Ash more so than other people in May's life. There goes the seal of approval. On a personal note; Ash Ketchum, why do you have to be such a chick magnet? If I was just like you, I score all the hotties I could find and...I don't know...yeah...

    What song or songs do you think describe AdvanceShipping the best?

    Dreams by Van Halen. Listen to it so you'll know how amazing this song is.
    Widower by The Dillinger Escape Plan. One of their newer songs, I am not sure what it's about, but hearing it, it does not translate to a Dillinger Escape Plan song, but I like it a lot.
    There should be a theme song for May just so they could play it in certain parts of the anime.

    Am I still cool?

    To answer my own topic:

    What song or songs do you think describe AdvanceShipping the best?

    I would say that "You Are The Music In Me" from High School Musical 2 describes our favorite pairing the best. Take a look at the lyrics:


    Na na na na
    Na na na na yeah
    You are the music in me
    You know the words
    "Once Upon A Time"
    Make you listen?
    There's a reason.
    When you dream there's a chance you'll find
    A little laughter
    or happy ever after
    your harmony to the melody
    It's echoing inside my head
    A single voice (Single voice)
    Above the noise
    And like a common thread
    Hmm, you're pulling me
    When I hear my favorite song
    I know that we belong
    Oh, you are the music in me
    Yeah it's living in all of us
    And it's brought us here because
    Because you are the music in me
    Na na na na (Ohh)
    Na na na na na
    Yeah yeah yeah
    (Na na na na)
    You are the music in me
    It's like I knew you before we met (Before we met)
    Can't explain it (Ohh ohh)
    There's no name for it (No name for it)
    I'm saying words I never said
    And it was easy (So easy)
    Because you see the real me (I see)
    As I am You understand
    And that's more than I've ever known
    To hear your voice (Hear your voice)
    Above the noise (Ohh ohh)
    And no, I'm not alone
    Oh you're singing to me (Ohh yeah)
    When I hear my favorite song
    I know that we belong (Yeah ohh)
    You are the music in me
    It's living in all of us
    And it's brought us here because
    You are the music in me
    Together we're gonna sing (Yeah)
    We got the power to sing what we feel (What we feel)
    Connected and real
    Can't keep it all inside (Ohh)
    Na na na na (Ohh yeah)
    Na na na na na (Ohh yeah)
    Yeah yeah yeah (Na na na na)
    You are the music in me (In me)
    Na na na na (Ohh yeah)
    Na na na na na (Ohh yeah)
    Na na na na
    You are the music in me
    When I hear my favorite song (Favorite song)
    I know that we belong (We belong)
    You are the music in me
    Yeah it's living in all of us
    It's brought us here because (Here because)
    You are the music in me
    Na na na na (Ohh yeah)
    Na na na na (Ohh yeah)
    Na na na na
    You are the music in me (Yeah)

    This song really suits Ash and May, do you agree?

    Wow it's been a while since I last posted and the thread has filled up fast!

    To start off, great Advanceshipping AMV Satoshi<3, really well done for your first. I should do one sometime I have an idea but not the time at the moment as well as not having all the episodes on my laptop to take clips from, must clear room on my hard drive.

    @ Hunter_RuLe, Great fanart you've found I've seen it before and it is still great having the Vineshipping in there as well.

    Now for the current topics;

    How do you think Ash reacted when May announced that she was going to the Jhoto region by herself?

    I think that he kept most of his feelings hidden deep inside himself, so he didn't seem overly sad at May leaving because he doesn't want to stop her from doing what she wants to do. So he didn't want to hold her back from achieving her dream just like he wouldn't want to be held back. His deep down emotions were probably along the lines of worrying for her safety and lonelyness that a close friend of his was leaving and he won't be able to see her for a while. I think that I've explained my thoughts clearly.

    What advanceshipping dreams/daydreams have you had.

    Loads but most I forget I did manage to wake myself up once and write it down and then turned it into a one-shot which has been posted on serebii, called 'Our Hearts Will Go On'. The other slightly Advanceshipping oriented dreams I've had are just involving Drew being killed in various ways, Yes my hatered of him even invades my dreams.

    Will you absolutely stay an Advanceshipper in the 5th gen if the new female trainer joins the crew, or will whoever it is affect your stance on the subject?

    I will always be an Advanceshipper as I subconciously became one and was not looking to pair up the characters in the anime. By the time Ash visits the next region there will be such a big age gap between him and a starting trainer that it would be like Brock hitting on May which is just wrong, so just having a new female companion won't make me ship them. On a plus side it makes Pearlshipping less likely as Dawn will only have travelled with Ash where as May has been with him through Hoenn and Kanto.

    What song or songs do you think describe AdvanceShipping the best?

    Firstly there are the ending songs from the 8th movie as well as the both the English and Japaneese 9th move endings, also I think that the 10th movie's ending 'I Will Be With You' has some Advanceshipping vibes. For a non-Pokemon song that fits Advanceshipping I would chose 'Remember Me' by Leslie Parrish, if you want the lyrics I posted it in the Shipping Song thread on page 8.

    What do you think Delia's impression of May as a potential daughter-in-law is? Conversely, what do you think Norman and Caroline's impressions of Ash as a son-in-law would be? Would they approve of Ash and May as an item?

    I haven't watched the start of the Battle Frountier Saga in a while but from what I remember May and Delia got on alright so I think that she would be supportive of them as a couple. As for Norman and Caroline, I think that they know that Ash can be trusted to look out for May especially if May told them about how many times Ash risked his life to save her, and as Ash is the only major person in May's life that they have met they will be more supportive of them as a couple than if May was with someone else.(I definately don't remember Norman meeting Drew, but if Caroline did meet Drew I don't think that she found out much about him to make her prefer him over Ash as Ash has met May's parents a few times and also when they went back to Petalburg for Ash's gym match I think they stayed around for at least a day which is pleanty of time for them to get to know Ash better.)

    Now I shall reply to the Max question;

    Originally Posted by Antiyonder

    Now first off, a big irony of the anime is that girl crazy guy like Brock tends to fail to attract the interest of a girl, whereas a clueless, oblivious Ash tends to have several admirers.

    That said, I wonder if Max would actually try to play cupid for Ash and his sister in contrasting with his tendency to drag Brock away (heck, I hear that in the original version of "Home is Where the Start is" that Max even says that it's a lot of fun when Ash and May are together). On that note, are there any fanfics that utilizes said idea? Bear in mind that this is merely a hypothetical question based on the possibility that May and Max where still in the main cast.
    I don't think Max would try an force them to become a couple, but I don't think he will be against it. Firstly he would want his sister to be happy and if that means that she and Ash become a couple he will back them up, secondly Max could see Ash as an older brother (and wish that he was), so if Ash and May were a couple Ash would be essentially his brother. There is one thing he might have against it and that is if he sees Ash as his best friend, and then he could find it awkward that he and May are going out. But no matter what he thinks, if Ash and May became a couple he wouldn't hesitate to annoy May about it.

    Thats all from me for now.

    See Ya Around!

    To be clear on the Max question, of course I don't mean that he will randomly decide to pair them up. I just meant that should he have a reason to, he might feel the need to do something to help them out (like telling Ash some particular likes that May has).

    Before I give my three cents on the bold question, I have to wonder why most Advanceshipping writers don't include Norman & Caroline in the stories for the most part. I mean Pokeshiping fics will show how Misty's sisters take to Ash as their sister's girlfriend, just as Pearlshipping fics will show Johanna's reaction to Ash and Dawn.

    What do you think Delia's impression of May as a potential daughter-in-law is?

    I don't see any reason for her to object, and well it would likely reassure her to know that someone will look over Ash. She might even find it cute to see their similiar appetites.

    Conversely, what do you think Norman and Caroline's impressions of Ash as a son-in-law would be? Would they approve of Ash and May as an item?

    Caroline's contestshipping feeling would likely fade if she saw more of Ash and May's interaction. Going with the couple comparisons from an earlier portion of the thread, she and Norman would probably see a bit of themselves in them and would definitely support them.

    Alright, guess I'd better answer a few of these questions...
    What AdvanceShipping dreams/daydreams have you had.
    Not really, to be honest. I guess the closest I've come was something about them running into one another in Johto and finding love there, but it's not too realistic.

    Will you absolutely stay an AdvanceShipper in the 5th gen if the new female trainer joins the crew, or will whoever it is affect your stance on the subject?

    Definitely. I can't see any reason not to, even if a new girl joins up with the gang (plus, Ash has to be, what, fifteen now?)

    What do you think Delia's impression of May as a potential daughter-in-law is? Conversely, what do you think Norman and Caroline's impressions of Ash as a son-in-law would be? Would they approve of Ash and May as an item?
    Having only seen snippets of Delia's interactions with May, I can't really comment, but I'm leaning towards a positive. However, I think Norman and Caroline approve of the way Ash looked out for May and Max during the Advance Generation, so I suppose they would approve.

    And in response to the Max question: I think Max would approve of Ash going out with his sister, not so much that he's thrilled about it but that he'd have more opportunity to give May a hard time.

    Alright, that's it, I guess. SJShark23 going on station.

    Wow, everyone's coming back after the announcement of Black and White. This is great news ^^ Hopefully we'll get more discussion going on here now.

    Well, I can't really comment on the Pearlshipping fics since I've never read any (they're a very rare breed on these forums, at least), but as for Misty's sisters, I think that's because writers tend to prefer sibling interactions rather than parental ones. Maybe it's because most shipping authors tend to be kids so they're not really confident with the dynamics of a parent's thought process, or perhaps it's just because parents tend to get "in the way" of the writing process when it comes to hooking two characters up, so their interactions with Ash or May tend to get shoved to the sidelines in an epilogue of some sort after the relationship has already been forged.

    My Advanceshipping fic takes place in Sinnoh, so Norman, Caroline, and Delia aren't anywhere nearby to "meddle", so to speak. I did have them appear in a couple of one-shots I wrote, but their role was primarily as being in the background. I did have May help Delia with the cooking, though, and Norman and Ash talked about Norman's Gym. I guess writing the parents' input on the relationship is either out of scope for a one-shot, or in a chapter-fic it isn't really relevant unless Ash and May are talking about marriage or something like that - most chapter-fics don't delve that far into the relationship (although I sometimes wish they would).

    Delia actually does make a good number of appearances in pertaining to shipper fics. Regardless, they don't necessarily have to appear in person, but through the occasional phone call. Though given that they have occasionally traveled outside their region, I'd think that for Delia and Caroline, having them show up for

    Same here. For one, it adds to the warm fuzzy feelings and because they can certainly provide somecontribute to the awkward embarassing moments.

    Incidently, could you tell me which oneshots you wrote in particular?

    Well, yeah, I guess they could call on the phone, but it would be kind of disruptive to the story unless it served some critical plotpoint or it was simply a "slice-of-life" fic, in my opinion.

    Uh, did you mean to leave this sentence like this? ^^; I'm interested in what you were trying to say.

    Sure! They're right here:

    Completing a Wish (Advanceshipping)
    Pumpkins and Spice (Masumishipping)

    I've noticed that a lot of people are already supporting the idea of Ash and the Fifth Gen Girl getting together. I think the people who still support Advanceshipping even so long after May's last appearance are really dedicated to their love of the couple.

    Speaking of the fifth generation, since it is now on the horizon, what do you all think will happen in the anime during the transition period from Diamond/Pearl to Black/White? My bet is Ash'll head back to Kanto and all of his old friends will make appearances. Do you think we'll get to see the ribbon again?

    Meant to finish it up by saying "show up for the story or a bit of it".

    I'll admit I'm guilty of pearlshipping, but not because it's the current thing. I just enjoy the chemistry is all. But Advanceshipping is still something I enjoy.

    Since we did get to see Misty's Lure on an episode of Diamond and Pearl, no reason we shouldn't get to see the ribbon.

    The ribbon has been shown in Diamond and Pearl before. Not only did they show it, they brought back May for a couple episodes. Almost all of us here, if not everybody, were so excited to see her back, this thread was swarming with posts. It was a nostalgic feeling. I know you'll be reading this, Gaz, you were there when it happened. You can enlighten us.

    Just you wait. As soon as they show the new girl, there will be a new shipping thread up in this forum. If there is already one right now, it will be revised as more details are revealed and what not. I still support Advanceshipping and Pearlshipping, but only once have I ever contributed to the new Pearlshipping thread. Why? I don't know. I guess it's just not the same.

    What will happen after Diamond and Pearl? Here's how I imagine it. Ash and Brock says good-bye to Dawn. (good riddance. teehee.) Ash and Brock went back to Kanto. Brock says bye and goes to Pewter City. (this must be some sort of formula.) Ash comes to Pallet Town, again. Ash goes to his house, goes in and finds out no one is home. Mom is possibly out shopping. Even Mimie is out. Oh well, there is at least Prof. Oak's Lab to visit, why the hell not? Ash goes to front door, opens it, and what he sees shocks him to oblivion. (dundundun) It's May!!!

    Yes, I know, it's wishful thinking. This what happens when you're a shipper.

    Hunter, welcome back. i wonder, so you still remember me? i also got back here recently.

    Will you absolutely stay an Advanceshipper in the 5th gen if the new female trainer joins the crew, or will whoever it is affect your stance on the subject?

    Yup, ive stayed a Pokeshipper and Advanceshipper since DP came out, i don't think when the 5 gen will change any of that.

    On the topic of including Ash and May's parents in a fic there are a few around;

    On serebii there is Lunarshadow's fic 'The Aura is With Me', in which the last 2 chapters have been May talking to Caroline on the phone about what has happend and why she is distraught. Another one was Earthborn's fic, in which it was brought up 'off screen' and might be brought up later.

    On fanfiction there are a few, some aren't to well written but the is one called 'The More Things Change' by XyKPfan which is about them sorting out their lives before they get married and involves a lot of interaction between them both and Norman and Caroline.

    As for when the end of D/P happens it is always the same the female companion leaves first and then Brock before Ash goes to Pallet Town. Then his mom throws a party and Ash's near by friends get invited. There is a good chance that May will turn up as Jhoto border's Kanto and if the Jhoto GF happens at the place the silver conference took place then that is in East Jhoto and Pallet town is in West Kanto so it isn't too far away. However, it is quite certain that Misty will show up but hopefully as a friend and no more.

    I would like to see Ash look at and hold onto the ribbon during the Sinnoh league as a good luck charm, so shippy.

    See Ya!

    Hmm, I don't think so.
    I've stayed a hardcore Advanceshipper all through DP.
    I don't really think if a new girl comes along, it would change my love for Advanceshipping.
    But hey, that's just me for you.

    Hi there, it's been almost two years since I last logged on. Man it's been a while.

    Will you absolutely stay an Advanceshipper in the 5th gen if the new female trainer joins the crew, or will whoever it is affect your stance on the subject?

    There were times in D/P that I really slipped away from Advanceshipping and supported Pearlshipping, but most recently, I've realized that no matter what, I feel that Ash and May belong with each other, no matter what happens. I can't guarantee that I won't fall away again, but hopefully I won't.

    What do you think Delia's impression of May as a potential daughter-in-law is?

    I don't think it would matter which girl it is to be honest. Delia would be very happy no matter which girl it is. And May certainly left a pretty good impression when they met in person.

    Conversely, what do you think Norman and Caroline's impressions of Ash as a son-in-law would be? Would they approve of Ash and May as an item?

    They would totally approve of that, and why wouldn't they? They've gotten to know Ash very well during his time in Hoenn. I love the idea of Norman being Ash's father-in-law. That just seems so fitting to me for some reason.

    As for what happens in the transition period after D/P ends, I think Ash and May will definitely get in touch somehow to at least give an update on how she did at the Johto Grand Festival, hopefully May will show up at Pallet Town when Ash returns. Misty will most likely show up, as she did after Ash came back from Hoenn. She hasn't had a cameo in an episode debut in almost 5 years now.

    Here's another unbolded question that I'm worried about(and perhaps not very related to the shipping). What would happen to May if contests get written out of the show?
    It seems that based on the preliminary information on the Sinnoh Grand Festival episodes that Dawn will at the very least make it to the finals against Zoey, and there is some speculation that if the writers give Dawn the win, contests will get the boot(I also think this would involve May winning the Johto Grand Festival as well). Thoughts and comments?

    I think she wouldn't mind May that much. i mean if May makes him happy then there wouldn't be much of a promblem.

    Conversely, what do you think Norman and Caroline's impressions of Ash as a son-in-law would be? Would they approve of Ash and May as an item?

    Caroline is a little similar to Delia so my answer for Caroline is the same for Delia's and Norman? i think he would be a little mean and say stuff like don't hurt my daughter and make her happy and don't make her cry etc.

    What do you think Delia's impression of May as a potential daughter-in-law is?

    I think she'd love to have May as her daughter-in-law. They've met before, so it's not like she just pops up out of the blue. Delia also knows that May is a very caring person, and she'd be able to rest easy that Ash was with someone who would always be there for him when he needed it.

    Conversely, what do you think Norman and Caroline's impressions of Ash as a son-in-law would be? Would they approve of Ash and May as an item?

    Caroline would probably react similarly to Delia. Norman? He'd be stern to Ash at first, but then he'd just tell him to relax and probably make a bad joke. Max would be the one to freak out, not Norman. Which brings me to the new topic:

    How do you think Max would react if Ash and May were to be an item?

    Personally, I think he'd completely lose it. Max doesn't like things to mess with his family or lifestyle, like when Ash beat Norman, Max stole the badge and hid in the greenhouse. Or when May decided to go to Jhoto, and the group went their seperate ways, Ash had to calm him down. Max thinks of Ash as an older brother and part of his family, so him dating May would throw his brain for a serious loop.

    And that certainly is a good assessment on why he might object to Ash and May getting together in a romantic fashion. But several things would point to the contrary:

    1. As you said, he sees Ash as an older brother. If anything, Ash and May's relationship would in a way make it more official.

    2. According to Bulbapedia, one of Max's line in the Japanese Version of "Home is Where the Start is?" has him saying (When Ash is going to cheer him up) "Why is Onee-chan so happy? It's really fun when Satoshi and Onee-chan are together..." Seems like Max is an Advanceshipper to me if that is what he really said.

    I agree with what Eon Master had said. thats a good way to write about Max's reaction is Ash and May became a couple.

    And i remember when Max said "Why is Onee-chan so happy? It's really fun when Satoshi and Onee-chan are together..." it was so cute ans sweet. I was so sad when that episode was dubbed, that part was cut off. but at least we had a last minute hint though. ^^

    Not much activity here... Oh well.



    What do you think Delia's impression of May as a potential daughter-in-law is?
    Does Delia even have a personality? Assuming said event should occur I suppose she would go over-protective mother but nothing more.

    Conversely, what do you think Norman and Caroline's impressions of Ash as a son-in-law would be? Would they approve of Ash and May as an item?

    I had a vision. Ash and May became an "item"; However May was worried about her parent's reaction to the subject. This resulted In May and Ash creating a Romeo and Juliet story. Parents finding out. Secret relationship etc. Ending In a Norman giving his "blessings" to Ash and May as a couple. Accepting Ash.


    Extremely Un-Pokemon like but still...

    How do you think Max would react if Ash and May were to be an item?
    He would initially have a typical Max reaction/breakdown, Probe them, over-react etc.

    How do you guys think May would react if she learned Dawn and Ash tied in a contest and split the ribbon the same way Ash split a ribbon with her? (I really hope this dosn't actually happen for real but it's a intresting what if)

    Before I start, I'll just say that I really doubt something like that would happen. I just can't imagine the writers would even think about it, and if they do, then I would say they're running out of ideas.

    Anyways, if it somehow happens, I think May would be about as shocked as Dawn was when she saw Ash and May pull out their halves of the Terracotta Ribbon. I would think she might feel a bit hurt deep down because the ribbon she split with Ash wouldn't seem as special anymore.

    Hey everyone. I made an AdvancedShipping AMV to celebrate the beginning of summer.

    But yeah. Advanced shipping is SO cute. It's probably my favorite of the 3 main girl ships.

    If dawn and ash split a ribbon?
    I think it would be MESSED UP!!!! I would be screaming "why the heck would they do that!?"
    I don't even see that happening to be honest, but it would be surprising if they did....
    May would probably be upset, reguardless of whether she likes him or not (and being an advanceshipper, OF COURSE SHE DOES!!) since it won't be as special as it was to her. I could even definitely see her crying and-if they're at ashs house-deila could maybe even comfort her (and possibly give ash(or dawn :P) a slap but of course thad be mean)
    I'm not dead.... Just unavailable :'(

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

    Hey Advanceshippers! ^^

    Sorry about my inactivity everyone. I've been busy with school, homework, and such and I never got the chance to get on. But now the school year is coming to close, I've more time to myself!

    Well, yeah, that's not going to happen. The split ribbon was May and Ash's thing.
    I can't imagine the writers doing that and if they did, it woul be just plain stupid. It would be like they're trying to copy May. It would be really stupid.
    Besides, the high fives are Ash and Dawn's thing so to have Ash high five someone else would make every pearlshipper angry (sorry, I'm a Pearlshipper as well as an Advanceshipper)
    So, yeah, that's definietly NOT going to happen.

    What do you think Delia's impression of May as a potential daughter-in-law is?

    Well, Delia really seems to like May a lot.
    I personally think she'd be happy to see Ash getting married and I'm she'd be happy about it being someone he actually knows and is good frinds with.

    Conversely, what do you think Norman and Caroline's impressions of Ash as a son-in-law would be? Would they approve of Ash and May as an item?

    Same thing with the last question.
    Both Norman and Caroline really liked Ash too so I'm sure they'd be more then happy to accept as a son-in-law and they would definietly approve of Ash and May as a couple.

    How do you think Max would react if Ash and May were to be an item?

    Max would be a totally different story.
    I agree with Eon Master on this one. I think Max would lose it at first. Remember the Ash vs Norman gym battle episode? Max totally snapped after Ash beat, stole the badge, and hid in the green house.
    Max really does think of Ash as an older brother so for him to find out about them dating, I personally think it would affect him a lot.
    but hey, that's just me
