Are you a ContestShipper? Me too. :3
My shipping list:
- Ash x Misty OTP
- Ash's Pikachu x Misty's Togepi/Togetic
- Drew x May
- Brock x Lucy
- Tracey x Daisy
- Zoey x Dawn
- Cilan x Iris
Things in shipping I don't do:
- I don't multiship, because if I really like a pairing, I don't want others to get in the way, and I don't genuinely like rival shippings of the pairings I support, so there's no reason to multiship.
- I don't crack ship, I want at least some good hints and/or interactions.
- I don't keep-away ship, that's just lame. If I don't genuinely like a shipping for a character, I won't ship him/her. I feel that my OTP is treathened by Serena, so the easiest thing would be keep-away shipping her with another character, but I won't do that, because there's no Serena shipping I genuinely support. Yeah, Clemont x Serena seemed cool to me because of an artwork, but I don't consider myself a supporter of that. I might take a liking to it if those two get some good interactions, but so far, I don't support it.
Despite being a hardcore and fanatic PokeShipper, I don't want any shipping to be canon, also not PokeShipping. I think it would be best if no shipping becomes canon. That way, no shippers get a stab in the heart because of a wrecked OTP. If PokeShipping would die, I know how hurt I'll be, no shipper deserves that pain. I'll remain a PokeShipper forever, even if AmourShipping becomes canon on Ash's side (I'm afraid that will happen), but it wouldn't be the same anymore. If AmourShipping is canon on Ash's side, PokeShipipng can be kept alive by the fans, but will be on life support and will never recover. But if AmourShipping doesn't become canon on Ash's side, PokeShipping truly stays alive. Do you understand my metaphore?
