Canalave city's gym leader, Byron/Tougan.
I played the game before really watching the anime.
When I opened up my gym badge case for the first time, I immediately had impressions of the gym leaders..
Natane/Gardenia had a greenhouse where she grew marijuana and looked like she secretly shared them with roark.
I imagined she would sometimes visit Oreburgh just to vine whip Roark's ass.
Roark looked like a 20 yr old happy go lucky, calm kind of guy with sweet eyes of kindness.
But then my eyes immediately caught the other gym leader with a firey hue of red hair, although more subdued...
..Byron of Canalave.
And I thought...
Roark was the cheery opposite of Byron's super srs mean face. Byron looked like he wasnt the type to talk much and the way his eyes are askewwww to the sideee...
That was the moment i instantly shipped them romantically.
I had no idea whatsoever that they were father and son.
I shit bricks, rocks, and fossils when i found out VIA the game that they were related.
And holy shit, i still ship them non platonically/ROMANTICALLY.
Fantina looked like a weird foreign chick/aka a rich bitch sporting class and elegance,
candice was the icy in your face i'm going to sex you up tom boy...who was secretly trying to get into Maylene's pants...
Gardenia looks like she'd join in, and Fantina looks like she'd join in just for feminine lulz.
Crasher wake looked like he was a pretty cool up beat pro wrestling turned sumo fighter kind of a guyyy who also at the same time scared the shit out of me a little.
And that lefttt Volkner.
My god, he's all the way to the edge of the case. That serious emo look on his face seemed to be foreboding of some kind of chronic depression problems.
Volkner also looked like he was some kind of closet pedophile for young boys. So when I played as Lucas/Kouki...
I automatically shipped them, lmao.
Yup, was cousin's birthday yesterday. Went out with two of my uncles, 2 of my cousins and my grandma.
I had my first margarita, courtesy of my uncle.
I shared with my grandma and accidentally got her tipsy.
I just got lightheaded.
I never knew my grandma was a great drinking buddy LMFAO.
I bonded with the other half of my family i rarely spend time with.
omg, when someone in my family says it's 1 am in the morning, they make it sound like it's a bad thing ROFL.
ohh yeahh, i drew this with pencil and colored over it.
so, no neater lineart.
i ship Dawn/Hikari with Cyrus or Cynthia...or that cute gothic lolita girl...or dark rai... >_>
Barry/Jun gets paired with his own daaaddddd, Kurotsugu of Battle tower (evades flying bricks)
Mars and Jupiter are lesbian lovers bc they're sexy.
Saturn gets paired with Archer/Apollo from Team rocket bc they both got ditched by their leaders LMFAO!!!! Plus they seem to have almost similar attitudes. And their hair are shades of blue. Seme Apollo, Uke saturn. This pairing just sprouted on my brain when I was in HGSS radio tower.
Roark gets paired with his daddy bc i played the game before knowing anythinggg.
Actually, one of the reasons I also Paired Jun with his dad was bc i didnt even really KNOW Palmer was his dad.
Volkner gets stoked on Lucas just bc Volkner looks like a lonely guy who needs more than just flint to ..LIGHT HIS FIRE LMFAO.
Flint and his little brother are cute..i ship them together...but platonically and not...BROMANTICALLy...at least not yet...
..i havent been persuaded.
oh gawd and other incest pairings happened too bc i DIDNT KNOWWWW...
Koga x Janine (i was younger and i didnt make the connection that she was his daughter...the puprle hair and ninja outfit and dur hur SAME GYM wasnt compelling evidence at the time.) ha ha
Norman X Ruby/brendan BC I DIDNT KNOWW NORMAN WAS HIS DAD! Has an interesting ship name too : childabuseshipping
pfttt *toots away*
honestly, even after i read somewhere that Palmer was barry's dad, i still wasn't really sure or convinced..so whenever i went to battle tower, i laughed to myself bc i thought it was some kind of epic trap on palmer's part to lure Jun up into his room/torture arena or something.
Doesnt help that he says it's his dream to have him face him in battle one day. Also, running around to find each other was cute. Yah...like the blonde hair wasn't enough evidence for familial relationship. Not mahh fault.
