Since the last discussion thread was eons ago (and closed down), I figured I'd give starting another a shot. Not that we're a rowdy group anyway, but all usual forum rules apply, with the additional reminder that Eldershippers are generally a multishipping lot.
For those of you not in the know, Eldershipping is Professor Oak/ Delia Ketchum (Ash's mom). We were pretty hardcore back in the day as far as fic went. I did not like the whole debate thing, preferring excuses for porn rather than reasons for war, so I'm the first to say I'm not up on all the hints. (Come on, though, didn't he go to the beach in Chronicles or something and have to bring her back a present? This one I'm misremembering)
I guess our beginning discussion question is the following, so I get to know you guys a bit:
If you ship this, what do you like about it?
Are you one of those who believe that Oak is Ash's father? Has there just got to be a reason she's always up at the lab, and shipping is as good an excuse as any? Is it just that darn cute? Tell me what you think.
Or discuss whatever you'd like, share your favorite fanart, or [insert other activity that the other shipping threads do]. I'm not picky.
