(blinking once or thrice, then chuckling and clearing throat) To think that after that special overarching scenario of mine, I would come across this resurgence. I can recall my own reasons for allying with you all these years, and if anything, my perception of the romantic partnership between these two kids may very well have reached a conclusive point. I’m recalling an attempt on my part to formulate an English version of “High Touch” about two months ago, and judging from that aforementioned scenario – which, for all intents and purposes, ended this franchise in Unova – I’d say that the harmony that Ash and Dawn share will safely remain in my memory. If I may ponder Adelaide1994’s question, then the following reflections could work quite well.:
What is your definition of the “Pearlshipping spirit” that has been talked about by some members in the past?
I would start here with a focus on Ash and Dawn’s most positive trait(s), strength through innocence and recognition. They are and have been capable of sensing each other’s thoughts and reacting to cheer each other up, whether either of them just won a particularly important battle or both of them have some deeper thoughts in mind. They see as expressions of their powerful friendship what others might see as activities more inclined toward romance. I envisioned these two trainers as people likely to join forces to actively take down any ruthless threats to Sinnoh after what I saw of them against Team Galactic and J on separate occasions. I would therefore define the “Pearlshipping spirit” as a special instinct celebrating this intuitive approach between Ash and Dawn, sharing confidence between their best attributes rather than any uncertainty about efforts to outdo each other, in a manner of speaking. Whether it’s Dawn leading a specialized cheer for Ash, Ash training with Dawn before any Pokémon Contests, or both of them enjoying each other’s company, they can think ahead of others around them, strengthening their bond along the way, ensuring a brighter future that either of them could imagine alone.
Babylon 5, Codename: Kids Next Door, 24, and now, My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. I am many things at once, and many people might have different opinions about little, old me. If freedom is my main idea, then harmony, individuality, and modernization are the three attributes I now sense and track. Those three attributes and that idea combined to make the United States of America a great global superpower and Pearlshipping and Wishfulshipping great Pokémon couples, and now, they've combined to make those four shows truly great television programs to me. I will enjoy enthusiastically supporting the Equestrian ponies' adventures for peace, for humankind, for the future.
