How about another topic?
What tropes best fit Advanceshipping, and why?
For those of you who don't know what tropes are, this is the explanation that they have on the TV Trope site:
"Tropes are devices and conventions that a writer can reasonably rely on as being present in the audience members' minds and expectations. On the whole, tropes are not clichés. The word clichéd means "stereotyped and trite." In other words, dull and uninteresting. We are not looking for dull and uninteresting entries. We are here to recognize tropes and play with them, not to make fun of them. The wiki is called "TV Tropes" because TV is where we started. Over the course of a few years, our scope has crept out to include other media. Tropes transcend television. They reflect life. Since a lot of art, especially the popular arts, do their best to reflect life, tropes are likely to show up everywhere."
So, for example, a common trope would be "The Power of Friendship." And, from that trope, you can see SO many examples from all kinds of media you come in contact with. Such as Harry Potter (power of friendship beats the Dark Lord), Pokémon itself (power of friendship can revive people, i.e. Ash in the first movie, and etc. etc), and every show you ever watched where the main character snaps out of a trance because their friends willed them to "remember who you are!" So, that's basically the gist. There are so many tropes, and they can get quite addicting to read haha. But anyway, I digress.
Here is the Pokémon's T.V. trope page: Anime/Pokémon - Television Tropes & Idioms
So, what trope fits Advanceshipping? I unfortunately cannot think of any off the top of my head, but it doesn't hurt to point out that May, Ash, and Drew could potentially fit in the "Love Triangle" trope. For obvious reasons. Our classic "Ribbon vs. Roses" argument.
(Anyway. I posed this topic in hopes that @DracoMan would have some good ideas, because if I remember correctly, he's a troper ^^)
Also, seeing as the last Advanceshipping "wedding" was quite well-received, I have devised another one!
The theme this time around is simply Princess and Her Knight In Shining Armor. AKA the royal palace wedding. It would take place in Cameran Palace, the place near the Tree of Beginning that Movie 8 took place in. The theme would be pink, gold, and white to represent the colors of the Terracotta ribbon, which is just that. As you can see, May's wedding dress is white, adored by pink flowers and gold jewelry. Ash, being his silly self, would want to wear a hat to his wedding (albeit pink, because Dawn would have had his head on a platter otherwise), and he would be wearing a slate gray tuxedo complete with a pink bowtie.
(He would also be carrying his half of the Terracotta ribbon in his pocket, for old times sake.)
The wedding would take place in one of the sparkling grand ballrooms in the castle (left bottom box) and there would be banquet halls filled with beautiful fancy food provided by Queen Ilene (middle bottom box). It is assumed that Mew, disguised as some sort of bird pokemon, would bless the marriage before retreating back to his home in the Tree of Beginning (middle middle box).
Hooray for weddings. Makes me want my own XD
