Sorry for being so little, this week, but I've been busy
Page 13, Melody (from Pokemon 2000), more rose-related posts and a bit more fanart Page 14, fanfics, some hint-related stuff and more rose-related posts Page 15, short hint list, even more fanart, our friend Kanta-chan went in there and said she liked CS, I'm getting tired form so many rose talk Page 16, a bit of fanart and rose talk. (I swear, If i ever read the word "rose" in that thread, I will kill myself)
^ Yes, Stormburst, it would certainly help to ask Scott85; he's one of the more competent contestshippers we know.
Jo-Jo would know some strong points too.
So like, I'm not very educated on these shipping guru's. From some old posts, it did seem like Scott85/Cybercubed and Jo-Jo had frequent wars on the Bulbagarden forums and some on SPPf I think, and though I never read them carefully, they seemed to be Advanceshipping/Contestshipping related.
But now I'm not sure what side Scott85/Cybercubed is on, since he wrote "Two of a Kind," which led me to believe he was an Advanceshipper. That, and he seemed to have shown support for Advanceshipping before. I'm pretty sure Jo-Jo is and has always been a full out Contestshipper.
So my main question is, is Scott85/Cybercubed an Advanceshipper turned Contestshipper? From a few posts I searched up on SPPf, that seems to be the case as he wrote this line in one of his posts.
Sadly Advanceshipping was never meant to be, and Contestshipping won't be an active ship next saga unless we get specials to see it.
Pity to see an ex-Advanceshipper with such a great fic turn over. But I guess I do agree that Contestshipping is a very valid ship, even if I only read the few hints on Bulbapedia.
That's is one of the reasons why your story is good, because you were able to use contestshipping to set up a conflict for your story and use it to propel Advanceshipping forward. It shows Drew's true personality when he cheated on May.
Well hey, he Cybercubed/Scott85 used to be an Advanceshipper, though I dunno how involved he was. I guess he was involved enough to write a whole 50 chapter fanfic about it, with rather long chapters too by the way (One I checked was over 7k words).
Scott was a full fleged Advanceshipper. He just turned to Contestshipping cause he felt that it was a more valid ship to him I'm guessing after the A/G saga.
He has his own views on things. I don't realy care, if he thinks Advanceshipping has no hope anymore... meh. There are many other Contestshippers that would wish to burn us at the stake.
But Is there anything about Contestshipping apart from the Roses. Honestly, if they get married will Drew continue to give her Roses, just a bit off to me.

What exactly are we supposed to counter? The fact that May kept the letter coz she thought it was from Drew, or the fact that she blushed and stuttered when Brianna asked her about her feelings for Drew?
Maybe it's just me being in an all-around pessimistic mood, but I can't think of anything to counter it with.
Its not just you Miranda, I'm not sure how to counter that one either. It might have been more of an exaggerated response because of how Brianna openly feels for Drew, but thats about all I can think of.
