It's okay you're not being pessimistic, her not going is an outcome we are all aware could happen, that doesn't spell the end of Amourshipping anyway though so don't worry about it. I would personally like to see them exchange the ribbon and the handkerchief too. However I think the best parting gift would be an exchanging of hats, Serena's original straw hat from the flashback or maybe her current one, considering how iconic Ashs hat is, it would be really nice to see him give it to Serena as a reminder that he will be back for her after Alola.
+ Serena in Ash's clothing was easily one of the best things about XY. Let's be real here, guys and girls: who didn't squeal in childish delight due to this scene?
I can't really imagine Ash wearing a straw hat though.
Double-posting is punishable by infraction and having the mods eat your second post like the former president of Uganda eats... Uh, nevermind.
A better example would be the warlords that controlled Liberia before and during the two civil wars that engulfed the nation. But seriously though, is there a rule against double posting different material in the same thread?
