People don't like to see one-liners in topics. It portrays the posters as being very incompetent that they can't think posts through and provide at least two lines of merit. D:There are these kind of rules here? Wow, its so different compared to bulbagarden...
Do you think the picture of Ash and May almost kissing is real? And if you do, what would the fans say (Every shipper out there)?
I used to think that it was real, and I laughed at the thought of it, because I thought it fake in the first place. I found out it was fake, and I laughed even harder. I rolled when I heard that people believed that a Christmas episode with this pic existed, and that it was pulled in fear of other shippers' retaliation.
It was a very lulzy experience for me.
What role do you think Ash has played in May's growth as both a trainer and a person?
He's played a significant role in her growth - after all, he was her first traveling partner, and the one she sought the most advice with. I haven't seen much of AG, but from what I have seen, she had continuously turned to Ash for support when she felt down and had no answer to what was in front of her. And also, he taught her that raising Pokemon was fun and enjoyable.
And how do you think this has affected their relationship?
Ash has now established himself as one of May's "go-to" people whenever she has a dilemma. She can always turn to him for advice and expect to get some positive reinforcement back. And the same scenario happens in reverse too. It's what separates this ship from the others; there's little possibility that the engagement will result in bickering and teasing. They trust each other enough to be honest and mature with whatever advice they give.
