“Writing’s on the Wall”

When I drew up this piece of art:

I mentioned that I had no idea what the circumstances behind it were. After thinking about it for a bit, I came up with some.

The title comes from the song from Spectre. I originally planned to do another songfic, a la “I’m Not That Girl,” but since the lyrics only relate to the plot in the broadest sense possible, and since this ended up having a much lighter tone to it than the music, it didn’t really work.

Big thanks to @taillow-suift for sharing a headcanon about Sir Aaron and a mermaid that informed a main pillar of the plot.

To get the timeline straight: everything from the anime happened except that they age, one year per region, Battle Frontier counts as a region, and Ash never goes to Alola. This being set ten months after the end of XY/Z, that makes Ash and Misty 18 going on 19, Brock 23, May 15, and Dawn 13 (if we assume the latter two are ten when introduced.)

Pokeshipping Week: day 7 - how they changed the other’s world

Misty has a crush on Ash

As a big fan of Ash Ketchum who ships him with pretty much every character in the show I’d just like to make a short PSA concerning Pokéshipping and the fact it exists.

I’m not gonna say you have to ship it or anything but I’ve been having a problem for the past few weeks where I run into people claiming Misty’s crush didn’t exist, was just speculation, or was dub only, and all three claims are just…really wrong…

Really…

Really…

Wrong.

Again, this doesn’t mean you HAVE to ship Pokéshipping. Ash has cute interactions with a lot of characters but while questions like “Does Dawn like Ash?” or “Does Clemont like Ash?” are left up to interpretation “Does Misty like Ash?” just isn’t. “Misty likes Ash.” is no less canon than “Serena likes Ash.” or “Pikachu enjoys ketchup.” It’s just a fact of the show.

This crush is established and referenced over and over again in the series. I don’t have time to talk about all of the references, but there was this one episode that focused on it almost exclusively…

where Misty meets this guy who falls in love with her.

His name is Rudy. He sweeps Misty off her feet after she saves his little sister from drowning, and the entire episode focuses on the fact he is very romantic, very wealthy, a skilled water Pokémon trainer, a skilled dancer, and constantly promises Misty the moon. To top all of it off Misty is very obviously charmed by him over and over again, so we know he’s not bothering her…

And near the end of the episode, he asks Misty to stay at his gym with him (in the original Japanese dub, he asks Misty to marry him). Let’s review the scoreboard. This guy is a handsome, wealthy, romantic that is interested in Misty. We know she’s interested in him too. He trains water Pokémon for a living (which Misty loves). He lives on a tropical island (which Misty loves). And he has a little sister (Misty has always been the youngest in her family and even mentions she wishes she had a little sister to look after). This is Misty’s happy ending. It doesn’t get any better than that. So why isn’t she with Rudy right now?

She turned him down for Ash. That’s it. That is the canonical reason given. Misty finds a guy who has everything she could possibly want. He asks her to stay with him. He dedicates his battle against Ash to her. She thinks about it, decides to cheer for Ash instead, motivates Ash to win the fight, and tells Rudy “Thanks, but no thanks.”

And this doesn’t mean Pokéshipping is better than any other shipping. I just wanted to take some time to say that as far as canon is concerned, Misty definitely has a crush on (and is probably in love with) Ash Ketchum.

This is even one of the few ships that managed to get some canonical blushes and jealousy from Ash! But that’s probably more than I should go into right now.

Just remember if you’re going to write a story with these two in it, unless it’s an AU or set far in the future or something, Misty definitely likes Ash. It doesn’t mean they have to end up together or you have to like the ship, but this crush canonically exists. Thank you!
