Hopefully I'm not late but: Happy NegaiShipping Day!
What do you like about Negaishipping?
I just love their interactions and how Iris isn't afraid to speak her mind and call Ash a kid. Ash never seems really mad at it and it sometimes feels like their flirting. xD
How long have you liked the pairing? Was it from the beginning or did it sort of grow on you over time?
It definitely had to grow on me since at first I was getting tired of seeing more Ash pairings. But I now find this shipping to be really cute, fun, entertaining, and wild.
What is your favorite moment between the two so far?
So many to choose from! Eitgher Iris saving Ash during the Sandile episode, their "date" in Nimbasa City, or when Ash said Iris' name with sadness during their World Cup battle. Especially since he said when tears started forming in her eyes. <3
If they had a day to do whatever they wanted together what would they do?
Maybe do some training together, have a vine swing race, eat apples, and at the end of the day they could gaze at the stars in the sky atop a tree. :3
Is there a word or phrase that makes you think of NegaiShipping?
The oh so infamous: Kodomo ne! Whenever I hear someone call others a child, the first thing that pops into my head is NS. ^^
What makes this pairing different from any others?
How they're both at equal strengths when it comes to battling and how they don't have that teacher/student dynamic seen so often. Iris herself is a unique characte! She's able to bring out Ash's "wild" side. xD
What things would you say these two have or could learn from each other?
Maybe Ash could teach Iris about all the different Pokemon living in other regions. They could both learn from each other's mistakes. Iris could teach Ash how to vine swing better and how to land safely if he falls. xD
What do you see or wish to see happen in the future?
I want their friendship to grow stronger. I also want to see that one special moment between them where it's just the two of them and no one interrupts.
Happy NegaiShipping day everyone!
