On a quest to find, help produce, or even make great Pokemon fan fiction and fan art

First of all, a brief intro: I've been a fan of Pokemon since I was 5, and still enjoy it to this day. Some of my fondest memories are of getting up before school to watch episodes of the anime and playing Pokemon Silver (as well as the Gen 4 remake), Colosseum, Snap, and Mystery Dungeon Red Rescue, to name just a few examples.
But after finding the ever-growing list of ships for the Pokemon franchise, I found that there were many that caught my attention, but each for different reasons. A few were ships that have always had a soft spot in my heart, others I could see happening or could see why people supported them but just wasn't that crazy about myself, some I felt a sense of neutrality towards, several I thought had the potential to be the subject for interesting and perhaps really well crafted fan art and/or fanfiction, and many, and I mean MANY, that were just so fascinating in their concept, too much so to be ignored or forgotten.
But with a few exceptions, it is been insanely difficult to track down existing fan art and/or fiction for far too many of these ships. I've decided to set out on a quest of my own to find existing fan art and fan fiction of specific Pokemon ships, and maybe even play a role in the creation of some along the way. And I have no shortage of ideas for prompts, some of which I'm willing to try my own hand at.
Sadly, time and resources are not on my side these days, and this is probably not a job I can do entirely by myself. I'll eventually start making threads addressing specific ships where I can post ideas for fan art and fan fiction as well as ask if anyone knows where to find examples of either for said ship, but for now, I've just made some gallery folders where I can post examples of fan art for ships that I've come across while surfing the internet. In other words, unless I say otherwise, I DO NOT own any of the fan art in the shipping galleries I put together, and will remove them if asked to, either by administrators or the original owners.
I might name specific ships and ideas in later posts, but I think that this is enough for now. So until next time, wish me the best of luck in my ongoing journey!
