I was just there for Thanksgiving. I didn't get to see Mama but hopefully I will get to during Winter Break. I stayed at my cousin's during that weekend and they have their own dog named Fifi and she's been around for literally as long as I can remember, as in when my cousin was a toddler, and she's three years younger than me. But for the time I was at my mom's place (My parents have been divorced for a while now though I still see/talk to my dad a lot.) it was... weird not having her being all excited and hyper to see me :/
We gave some of the fish to my cousin and they became healthy and HUGE, even the odd goldfish. Though they're long gone too at this point, her family's had much better luck with pets than we had. Mama, meanwhile, was given away to another family since my mom didn't want her to be left alone all day since she's barely at home anymore, and my sister and I are away at college... Though we CAN visit her whenever we come down. So we technically don't have a pet atm :/
No but there was another dog when we were kids and a parrot along with a fish tank a lot later down the line (though before Mama). The dog was named Lucky and he was a hyperactive pup, so much so in fact that we kept him outside pretty much all the time. One day he just up and vanished with my dad telling me he took him to a farm. The parrot also disappeared one day but I have no recollection of what happened. As for the fish... well, it gradually became a fish graveyard. :/
[ I'd love to ride an Altaria with my girlfriend! <3
Why say sorry? No need to apologise. I just like the idea of them being a couple, with Togepi/Togetic being naughty and Pikachu being a "good boy", Pikachu being sick of it occasionally, but loving Togetic so much that he won't dump her.
Well, "casual dates" sounds like she's trying different guys and doesn't want committment. Then why does she call them boyfriends if it's not about serious relationships at all? But yeah, I think Dawn would be someone who might "do it" without a relationship, while Misty would NEVER do that. I'm not saying that because Misty is my favourite character, Misty just seems more romantic to me, and would only want "it" in a serious relationship. Dawn seems more like "I do it if I feel like it", while Misty isn't even interested in anyone aside from Ash. But anyways, using Dawn for this was right, she didn't have an obvious love interest. Doing this to Dawn is much more fitting than using Misty or May for it, who would NEVER do that, and who have clear love interests.
Yeah, some girls can indeed be complicated, they don't know what they want. But it's also a matter of personality. I think I'm quite romantic, I often say nice things to my girlfriend and she does the same to me, but she and I have a similar major interest in Pokemon, so that helps her and me to talk about our main interest in life, while she and I can also can do something sweet together. For example, my drawings with her and me are about Pokemon and are romantic, and talking about them to her is often cute and romantic too. And my girlfriend is a tomboy and has no interest in overly girly stuff, so that gives me a very easy time when it comes to her interests.
Ash and growing up? Physically, yes. Mentally, only a little bit. I'd say enough to realize his feelings for Misty, but not enough to become romantic.
Dawn? Numerous boyfriends? Does she have them at the same time in a sl*tty way, or did she just start and break up relationships often like that person I told you about in our PMs?
Ash's denseness is really clear in this fic, he's trapped in his own little world of Pokemon battling and friendships. This oneshot shows it perfectly and it's clearly good. I can't say much more, sorry... When a fic is really crappy, I can be nitpicky and give tons of criticism, but that's harder for a good oneshot like this. ]
