Awesome! Hopefully even more of us will join on. And don't worry about "only" fanfics, it's the same with me :P.Ok, I really like the idea of this Contest and I'm definitely interested on participating. It would definietly give me a reason to write that Pearlshipping one-shot I've been dying to write for like ages now.
But yeah, I'm definietly interesting in participating in this Contest, Pat. But the only thing I can do is write fanfics :/
Well, here's my fundamental point... Any time where Dawn comes back cannot happen during BW proper. By which I mean the Isshu journeys. It can only feasibly happen as a result of a re-journeying through a different region. That is far more likely if BW is rushed (since it's unlikely that the Gen VI game, which will mark the end of the totality of BW, will come out any time soon). That is because it gives Ash and Dawn a ton more time for closure. I just can't see Pearlshipping made canon over the course of 2-4 episodes unless they truly are pressed for time and the anime is about to be canceled...So my question is: Would this be beneficial for PS or not
-EDIT- The Champions League fits the bill perfectly. Of course, in such a scenario May, Misty, and Iris would all probably come along too.
As for a cameo, it can certainly be nice (and we might get some nice moments ), but it would likely preclude her coming back as a full-time cast member.
As for more similarities: It's interesting to note that in both Ash and Dawn's cases, the water starter saved them before they were actually their pokemon. I'm seeing some subtle hints here and there about that, but only time will tell if that becomes more important.
Yeah I'm wondering if the dub will have anything similar at all (doubtful, since they rarely base their songs off the Japanese, but it's entirely possible :P).anyway I will try and keep this thread active and I hope we will continue to have great discussions! I always get hopeful when i hear the opening of best wishes because when he sings the part of "that nostalgic voice" he sings it with alot of emotion to shoe how important it is to him.
While I'm not sure Ash ever will cry again... (the last time he got close was when Pikachu nearly died in Sinnoh, but even then it was just a drop) I certainly think that would be an awesome situation XD. I think they could do a lot with what seems to have been a brief time-jump between DP191 and BW001, but I doubt that any of that will be colored in. All I can say is that it seems that Delia Ketchum finally got to spend some quality time with her son. She essentially forced him into finding a new place to explore XP.I am sooo hoping hikari was the one who designed his clothes. Imagine if he gives him a new design for his next region?! that would be sweet! but i really think they HAVE to bring dawn back because they always do it as seen with the examples of misty and may. I really hope they hug when she debuts in best wishes...and that ash will be close to crying when she leaves cause that would really show how much he cares about her.
haha, thank you! I'm not sure I deserve the praise, but I definitely appreciate the kind wordsand thank you facescar and wind21! you both have very good points and it makes me excited all over again for pearlshipping! keep it up you guys!
Anyways, as for the contest: I'm reallllllly excited to get to work on my submission story (I'll start next week after finals :P), not to mention getting back to my other one. I hope more of you guys sign up to take part, because I think it'd be great for the thread
