    I'm guessing they call it Kansas because they both look like they can have grown up on a farm, and they seem to give of that Valley Girl feel.
    I think Vycksta mentioned earlier on the thread that she named the pairing, and that there's a reason "unsuitable for young members" or something. Or is my memory getting messed up?

    Nope, your memory is perfectly intact!

    FullMetalAlchemist, if you want the reason behind Kansasshipping's name, then drop me a PM. As already mentioned by Flame Mistress, it's not out-and-out terrible, just not exactly PG-13.

    Well, I can help on the last one. The name is another word for Juxtapose, which means tow things that stand out and contrast another, like Burgh's and Elesa's personalities, clothing style, and so forth.

    this is a bit of an educated guess, but:

    skyla is a pilot, obviously, and mistralton city & striaton city are basically on opposite sides of unova. so if she were to fly to striaton to visit cress she might experience jetlag because of different timezones. this is assuming of course that unova is large enough to have different timezones, but since it's based on the USA i think that's a definite possibility. (:

    Ah, I thought it was something like that, but I didn't think Unova had different timezones. Thank you! :3

    It's okay. At least it makes a little more sense for me now. Thank you!

    Why is Trip x Bianca ModelShipping? Is it because Trip likes taking pictures and Bianca therefore would seem like a model?
    The same goes for Trip x Dawn (PortraitShipping)?

    in greek mythology, daphne was a nymph who was pursued by the god apollo (archer's japanese name). she turned herself into a tree rather than give in to his advances ;o
    & lyra would probably be a bit conflicted/opposed to a romantic relationship with an enemy, so it makes sense IMO.

    Added bonus, intentional or not, is that Apollo created and played the lyre. Daphne was also turned into a laurel tree, which branches of were used to crown champions.

    well theres a surfing wax called seaweed Also surfers have to pay attention to how much seaweed there in an area where you surf.Also seaweed is a euphamism.

    Less on the "sea" and more on the "weed", if I know the submitter well enough, but that's a reasoning that can go ignored if necessary, given everything else about how seaweed related to both of their hobbies.

    Is there any reason Colress and Professor Juniper is called 'PoisonedBerryshipping?' I haven't played the new games yet, so I might be missing an obvious reason, but it's been driving me crazy lately and I want to understand it.

    Let me try to explain here, if I get this correctly. Aurea's (Since we canonly know both of the Juniper's names, I'm going on first name basis) last name is a type of plant called the Juniper bush. This bush creates berries that are edible, called Juniper berries, and they taste great with meats... Well, since Colress is scientist focused on studying power and potential (Seriously, why doesn't he work at Smogon?), and his team is unnatural, I'm guessing the poisoned part if from pollution that his views and Pokemon may cause. I hope that explains it.

    Oh, I see. I was trying to figure it out before I got White 2, so I would understand the naming if I decided to ship it. Thank you for clearing it up for me.
