And that picture is basically what I imagine when I try to fathom how most fans think of a love triangle involving FerrisWheelshipping.

The Joltik is just to help make some sense of it.

Black and Cheren, even Ingo sometimes, all fall under the same trap. The Jacob Blacks of the usual FerrisWheelshipper's mind. Simply added into the mix to add "drama".  Rarely added in order to give the participants of the triangle developement and growth, which should be the only valid reason to have a love triangle in the first place. But hey, this are all shallow twits, to them the concept of depth and detail is like the concept of advanced mathematics to the everyday Joe. Something they try to avoid.

Well, it isn't.

Yet  the idea of involving a love triangle with this pairing is most likely the recipe for fail (atleast basing it on the Twilight portrayal of the participants).

First of, there's Mr. Gropius.

Let's take a look at this fellow for a second. As I've said many times before. He is someone who can't really grasp the concept of romance. In order for a relationship in which he'd be involved in to work, it'd take far more effort on his partner's part. So if Hilda wishes for whatever there is between her and the man to grow, she'd have to help him understand and learn. She'd have to dedicate alot of effort for him.
That would already show that she is only interested in him.

And the fandom already has horrible trouble getting this little aspect right.
When you throw in the third player, it get's worse.

As I mentioned, a third player, a triangle, would only work if it's to develope the characters.

One way this can work wonderfully is by having the third player deeply care about her and think that the effort she's putting into being with N is not worthwhile considering how naive the fellow is, or something along those lines.

But rarely are reasons why anyone cares about anyone ever touched upon.

Now going into more specifics on the "Jacobs" of Pokemon Black & White. The only one that can really be spoken about is Cheren. Because Hilbert has no defined personality in-game and there isn't much to base Ingo on.

I HATE, DESPISE, how Cheren is usually portrayed. The guy does seem kind of like a jerk at times, but he's a well meaning kid. I haven't even come across ONE portrayal of him in a FerrisWheelshipping love triangle that doesn't make him look bad. NOT ONCE. He ALWAYS he loses to N. Is ALWAYS jealous. And always loses to the Edward Cullen knock-off interpretation of N, which makes it worse.

If Cheren where to lose it'd be because he realized that she isn't for him and would get over it, maybe the getting over process could take a while, but he would accept his loss. That's how Cheren is, he wouldn't hold anything against anybody. He may seem like a jerk, but he is a good natured kid, honorable too. This is basically what happens in-game with him accepting his views on strength.

So basing on how Cheren is, and his friendship with Hilbert in the various canons, I can only assume Hilbert himself wouldn't be far off on how he'd fit into the scenerio. Pretty much the same outcome too. So when I see him villanized it ticks me of aswell.

Ingo, the man seems like a decent guy, gloomy and/or serious, but mature. That's why I like about Expressshipping (Ingo/Hilda), it just seems like both are level headed and mature people. So if she doesn't love him, he'll accept it and move on, once again, as hard as it may be.

Soooo, why butcher realism and characterization for the sake of drama? Is our society really that dimwitted? That's what the success of Twilight makes me think. And when that mentality is carried over to Pokemon, I further think people have real problems on how they think the world works.
While I'm not fond of Checkmateshipping (nor Rebelshipping), I find it's fanbase is pretty respectable and nice, so this is in no way bashing or implying negativity on CherenXHilda.

Almost everyone knows I like Chessshipping, so I don't give a damn what you think I mean here on it. =P

Hell if there's anything you feel should be added feel free to share.

Also..Emmet is Emmet in that poster. xD

Pokemon is (c) of Ninendo and God aka Arceus the Almighty.

Twlight is (c) of Stephanie Meyer aka Satan himself.

EDIT: If anyone important on DA or something is like "WTF, why is this one the front page?". I'm asking the same thing.


I don't want any trouble. -_-;

EDIT: You know what. FUCK IT. I'm removing the damn picture. What was supposed to be an in-fandom thing became a circus attaction.

I agree completely with what you said about Cheren; I don't think I've ever read a FerrisWheelShipping fanfic in which he didn't get a really unflattering portrayal. :X It also irks me since I'm a CheckmateShipper.

I think love triangles are a lot of fun to write, which when used correctly can go beyond being plot devices to become great tools for developing characters. For instance, I was writing the very end of a CrystalShipping fanfic when I thought "What would happen if Silver saw what happened and how would he react?", which led to me bringing him into the story (it also helps that I'm an avid SoulSilverShipper). The same exact thing happened with Gold (it also helps that I'm a HeartSoulShipper). The love rectangle that came about because of this caused the story to expand from its original seven pages, led to me adding two parts that went from Gold's and Silver's perspectives and greatly developed all four characters involved. Now I really love writing for this "foursome" (not that kind of foursome, mind you). 8-)

I whole heartedly agree with everything said in this. Ive seen far too many artworks/fanfics where both White and N are completely OOC.. Its sad to see Fettishwheelshipping giving Ferrishwheelshipping a bad name.
dat pic.. It will never be unseen!

Okay, anyone here want to destroy Twilight?
If so, I've got some flamethrowers, a tank, five Lighsabers, Joltik, Charizard, Hydreigon, Flygon, Salamence, Groudon, Kyugre, Windigoes, The Elements of Harmony, Peanut butter, Trebuchets, Sparkle Remover, Gimli's axe, and the Death Star.
There's an infinite number of all but the Legendary Pokemon and the Death Star.
Pick your weapon.

I personally will be using my Shiny Stoutland, ordinary Samaurott, a Lightsaber, and three tanks. Anyone want to help me?

I do see what your saying though they really shouldnt just add a person in the love triangle and give them no story. It's like they're just there to look pretty.

Is it really rong to have a love triangle?

Plus that picture is just for humor.

I always thought of Black and White as siblings (that might however be because me and my brother play B&W) and Ingo? Well meh... I however always pictured N as the derpy 'forever alone' guy (:rofl:) I like cheren and White better, it makes plain sense i my option. I also like Black and Bianca, why? Idk. But why the heck do people always give something a twilight ref? Actually for the hunger games I understand. But why make White like Bella? WHITE ACTUALLY CAN KICK ASS!

Agreement. Characters have there personalities ('cept the protagonists, i mean Hilda and Hilbert. xD) and they should stay.=) Though I hate it when somebody compares things to Twilight. (Don't get me wrong, it really fits here, but many people just compare EVERYTHING to Twilight. xD)

I dont think of Ferriswheel shipping as Twilight at all... To me it is more of a Romeo and Juliet or some other beautiful love. Maybe even Rapanzel (of course N in a way is Rapanzel)

I'd be careful with using the term "Romeo and Juliet love". Most people think of cliche sappy romance when that's mentioned. >.< But I get where you're coming from, putting duty over feelings. Which is what this pairing is. They'll sacrifice their own desires for the better good of those around them.

Once again took the words outta my mouth.
The only time I think they can be a tiny,tiny,tiny bit out of character (only in the slightest,barely recognisable) is when you are basing it on a story. So that way people know who the character you're crossing over is and so that the story still makes sense.
But that EXCLUDES twilight.It doesn't deserve to have cross-overs.
I mean look what twilight has done, we are being over-populated by brainless fangirls.
