Ok, I never like the idea of shipping unless it’s for a fanfic story. This part of me wanted to debate the idea of SpecialJewel vs. Mangaquest. Let’s drive in.
What I say about this? The characters are a big factor in here. We all know the characters: Gold, Crystal, and Silver.
Of course there are going to be various so called hints which I found it lame. Let’s start with possibilities of which will happen: Based on sciencific sources of romantic couple will last long, I think Mangaquest has a best chance.
The reason why look at the background past to the characters. Gold and Crystal are similarly raised by Pokemon and have single moms while Silver’s life was messed up. I know there are SpecialJewelshippers will have their reasons is they hate Gold and Silver and Crystal are meant to together.
I see this shipping like the cliche couple of a misunderstand bad boy and the girl who can change him. I don’t see it and science proved they won’t last long. Yea, similarities is good in personalities but not for main mood mode.
Gold is always outlook, but has his serious moments if need and secretly a nerd that I would imagine watching too much samurai films, anime, and Sci-fi. Crystal in the other hand is serious, but she has her plucky moments and probably a girl gamer along with Gold’s same interests as well her only secret. Silver is different, he tends to be himself and not to be afraid what he does.
Also I don’t get why people want to ship silver and crystal. I see it as a boring couple and not interesting as well. The hints shippers claimed are nothing but to a reality standpoint it’s so obvious.
For the last time, a blush could be anything like embarrassment. Also I found it weird that Crystal reacts strong to Gold than Silver. Gold may be a flirt guy, but he never flirt towards Crystal except with a nickname would assume this makes Crystal exceptional to Gold.
Also there is a greater chance they will hook up because Gold and Crystal are more closely best friends. Often there are marriages lasted so long due of the fact that married couples stayed married forever are best friends. I would say the least to say this.
If Silver and Crystal were to wed, then Gold has to support the shipping. If it was Gold and Crystal to be wed, Silver has to support the shipping. That depends on the point of view.
I mean this sounds stupid which it is that I am a….Mangaquestshipping person. (Booing) it’s true. But gameverse shipping is much different like I am a heartsoulshipping person.
Everyone has their own shipping and better not to argue with it. But in HGSS manga chapter, I noticed a strange things in there like Crystal is overreacting of thinking Gold will laugh at her. Ok, she could ignore Gold if she was very independent person.
I mean what is wrong with her, it felt she was out of character that he will make fun of her knowing she already knew Gold will do. Also Gold was surprising mature in the chapter unlike his normal self. He didn’t laugh or even make a rude comment on her look, he just thinks it suits her which she cut him off with her Pokemon attack and a two kicks.
I would assumed they are very close and what I mean very very close best friends. Yea, there are SpecialJewelshippers assumed Gold and Crystal won’t last that long. I might agreed on that, but I ask this: How long for Silver and Crystal to be in a relationship?
That is a another pointer to state the answer to both shippings is both same answers. The whole idea of Johtoshipping is *(&^ing stupid and ridiculously. I mean what gave the idea of three of them having a relationship. I mean how’s even its possible.
Yea, there are threesome relationship except it’s a love triangle from a reality standpoint. Hell, even reality doesn’t make it any sense. There is one area I don’t touch: Preciousmetalshipping.
Ew, I don’t’ touch that. The reason is that Gold is not gay or not even that gay because he likes female gender which it's canon!. If Silver was gay, I wouldn’t care.
It could be cool to have a gay Pokemon character. But the whole idea of both them in a relationship is out of place and unless there are fanfic authors made a brokeback mountain thing on them. It’s like Frodo and Sam debate from Nostalgia’s Critc’s 11 dumbest lord of the rings moment.
The whole idea that Pokemon Special is not a romance story like Naruto, One Piece, and Dragon Ball Z, it’s a power of friendship. There’s a major difference about it. Being in love is someone you have an attract you want to be with and the love of friendship that you got that friend’s back.
I mean there is alot of that in media even Lord of the Rings on best friends. Tolkien intentions was the power of relationship unless there are Yaoi fans out there want them so which the same for yuri fans too.
Enough of that, what about the idea of debate was about?
The whole issue is that I favored to Mangaquestshipping more because Gold and Crystal are not so different. I respected the SpecialJewelshippers because yea I can see Silver and Crystal can work out, but I don’t see it because it’s so damn cliche of independent girl falls for a bad boy thing. Why I favored more on Mangaquestshipping?
Hear me out. It’s not the interaction, the background, their way of outlook in life, or personality. My answer is: They were meant to be together no matter what.
Yea I know Gold is a perv and a goofball but he is very mature person only at the right time. Crystal is a serious person and very smart, but she can be plucky and happy go around if she has a nice time with Gold. Why I disagreed the idea of SpecialJewelshipping?
The answer is that I don’t see it. My interpretation that Silver is not interested in a relationship or Crystal sees Silver as a brother rather a love interest. What are the counterarguement is that Crystal will see Gold as a brother too, but she treat him as a brother then why she didn’t scorn Silver?
Think about it, if they were brothers to her then they get equal scorning.
That part by evidence that Crystal only got mad at Gold in HGSS rather than Silver. This proves that the person you like is the one you will get mad at.
It sounds like many couples today. Couples who tend to argue (not the ones have relationship abuse) have a better chance to have a successful relationship. I like Mangaquestshipping stories except the breakups and angst.
But if it was the same thing with SpecialJewelshipping, I won’t read it which applies to breakups and angst.
If I was hypocritical of my saying, go ahead and say it because I won’t care about it. I wanted to give my point of view of this shipping has gone out of here.
So, I am done for now. You can say whatever you want to say flame comments on this journal, but I know my civil liberties. I have the right to speak out my opinions.
I'm not here to start a shipping war, I am merely expressing what I have to say. I respected the creator's decisions on the story. I'm heading to do real life stuff now!
