    Default Tú y Yo (Contestshipping)

    Si no soy el propietario de Pokémon(aka I do not own Pokémon :P)

    Rating: G

    This is a little Spanish/English one-shot I found sitting in my notebook when I went to look for drabbles for the drabble thread. Don't worry if you don't know anything about Spanish, it's in English too. Personally I just hope my Spanish grammar doesn't suck.

    Note: Drew's POV and brackets () mean English

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Random notes: Number one, the ending punctuation is supposed to come outside the quotation marks in Spanish.

    Number two, I know I didn't need to use all the pronouns, but I did for emphasis and it's not wrong to use the pronouns if even most people don't. And that was the point. I wrote every single sentence with "I" or "You" didn't I?

    Number three, I wrote this in Spanish first and then translated it into English instead of the other way around, so that means I threw in some neat parts that were lost in translation.

    Like Drew, through out the fic he tended to use "usted" the more formal version of you when talking to May, like you would a stranger. But when he thought of her always used the more personal version of "tú" to refer to her. Except for his last line, where he said "Tú eres la chica en rojo, żno"? ("You are the girl in red, right?") he let it slip out. The formal tone would have been "Usted es la nińa (or chica) in rojo, żno"?, but he didn't say that. Because hey, I think a more personal tone was in order.

    Erm anyway. Drew was vague on "Buy red" on purpose, he was playing around with her. But I kinda liked the idea. He is a little prat after all, and why I like him.

    May however used personal pronouns the whole time. Even when she was screaming at him. Because, I don't she her as the type to use the formal tone, and it also can show respect. Maybe it's her way of saying "You're no better than me, muchacho." :P What ever you want to think.

    Number four, I haven't seen the Latin American version so I don't know how they speak in the anime. So don't flog me if I got it wrong. :P Okay?

    Number five, Spanish is not my native language so if you know it, and can offer me advice it would be much appreciated.

    I know some Spanish, but it's fading as the years go on. XD
    This was a very cute poem. I understand the emphasis in using the pronouns...it made me stop and think on every line, which I suppose acted like speed bumps. Very well-played. I'm glad I read your notes because I didn't catch the switch between the Spanish "you"'s.
    As for the interaction, it was adorable...certainly the classic Contestshipping the ship spawned from. Great work. Overall, a very nice piece. ^^

    Oh, wow this is an honor. I'm glad that you liked it and said it was classic Contestshipping as it wasn't easy using another language. Thank you for reviewing.

    Glad I could help , Spanish could be a very tricky language.. specially if your translating from english... a few words or sentences in english could mean 2 or 3 different things in spanish.

    Aaaaaw, this was very cute poem, Yoshi. This poem somehow symbolicly showed May and Drew's interaction their entire time in the series....XD wish you made some more

    Thank you. I'm happy it came across that way. It's kind of funny, I was looking at a Spanish book one day, and I saw some of the phrases and thought wow that would work for May and Drew. So I wrote some down, and forgot about it. Till now. Could I write some more? Hopefully if I got some inspiration.
