FAQ
1. I've heard about Ash and Misty being refered to Pokeshipping, ANML, and other terms. Could you explain?
Pokeshipping is a term that is basically sort of a compound word. Poke is short for Pokemon, while shipping comes from the word relationship. As for ANML, it stands for Ash and Misty Love. Sometimes you might see ANMNR at the end, which stands for Ash and Misty Romance Novel. Other terms for them are satokasu [sato is short for Ash's Japanese name Satoshi and kasu is short for Misty's Japanese name, Kasumi], Gakishipping [a less known version which translates to Bratshipping since Team Rocket refer to them as gakis in the Japanese version], Sakashipping [an even less popular name for Ash and Misty], Sushishipping [again, an unpopular name for Ash and Misty], Trainershipping [yet another unpopular name for Ash and Misty], Twerpshipping [another name], Andrewsshipping [another name (Seriously, where do people come up with these names?! xD)], and Bikeshipping [another name that is quite uncommon but not as rare].

2. It's rumored that Misty will return. Is it true?
It hasn't been comfirmed on my account, so no sadly. However, Misty does make cameos throughout the new seasons. The latest cameo we have of her is when Ash fishes with the mini Misty lure she sent him. I'll be glad to alert everyone if anything comes up.

3. What are some good Ash and Misty websites?
Miyabic Room is the heaven for any supporter of Ash and Misty. You will instantly love her fanart, they're beautiful and will make you drool for hours. Her website is in Japanese, which is a little confusing at first, but after time, it becomes a piece of cake to nagivate around.
Teppo Pepper is another wonderful artist who draws Ash and Misty as well as many other shippings, so you're bound to find something you like. Her website is also in Japanese. A little harder to navigate around, but it's definitely worth seeing her art.
Love Power is a developing site which focuses on Ash and Misty along with other shippings, too. Their style is very nice and creative! The site is pretty easy to nagivate around, which is always a plus for anyone who has little knowledge of Japanese.
Leafy has a portion of her website dedicated to Ash and Misty, too! It's a little hard to find, though. She draws them pretty differently than your usual artist, but I assure you that it is excellent. Also, if you love the pokemon in general, then you're in for a real treat.

4. May I advertise this community in my profile, and/or in another community?
In your profile, sure thing! Feel free! The more people who know As for another community, I wouldn't suggest it unless it's your own. xD

5. Are there any rules about extremely explicit art [hentai, porn]? Do doujinshi count?
Fow now, I would say that it is best not to show any of this at all for the sake of younger members. Sorry! As for doujinshi, I'm debating about that issue since many pairing communities do allow NC-17 doujinshi as long as there are warnings. But anyways, for now, no hentai or porn until further notice, please.

6. What about fanfiction consisting of deeply detailed sexual relations [lime/lemon]?
Yes, this genre of fanfiction is allowed. Please remember to put it under a LJ Cut! If you do not know what a lime is, it is a fanfic that does contain mature themes [heavy kissing, making out, etc.], but often skips the sex scene although it is inclined that the characters are going to have such relations. As for a lemon, just think of it as extremely explicit writing of sexual scenes, meaning that it does go through the sex scene unlike the lime. Just please remember put in a warning of your fanfic contains any of this, okay?

7. Do I have to tag a new entry I make? Why?
It would really help if you did, so yes, this is a must. It will help everyone be able to find a certain entry one is looking for. If your entry is not tagged, then it will not appear under any of the tags. All entries are to be tagged any of the following that relates to your entry: 
- affiliates *
