Giovanni Shipping

Oooo, no I have no read it.

XD I dont think Silver would suspect his father of lusting after him.
Well, not suspect he is lusted after per se, I just think he'd be able to tell something's not precisely "fatherly" about the way he is being protected from Gold and, hell, perhaps even all his other friends too :XD2: (Blue is a close candidate, maybe)

...anyways, you should read that story. It's nice ;-)

Hit me up with a link and I'll check it out.


Manga!Silver has never really had a father before though. He'd have a hard time telling what is and isn't "normal".
Which also plays into why Giovanni is rather confused about how HE feels. He's never really had his son around before. He may not know how much of what he's feeling is fatherly and how much is....more.

Here it is, Admitting by Aero-Dragon's-Sky.

Yeah, I guess you have a point there. Gosh, stop giving out ideas that poke my mind into submission! Anyways, I think Giovanni would be able to tell how he feels; I think he had to fall in love in the past to even have a kid, you know? I say he'd be more on the guilty side, like "I shouldn't... but I do... why?"

Thanks. I check it out.


Man, poor Giovanni. I don't really think a whole lot of "love" was involved in Silver's conception, but I'm sure Giovanni would be able to understand that SOMETHING was off about how he felt.
But ya know, maybe it's just residual feelings of guilt, or he misses Silver's mother to some degree...or he's imagining it.
Or he just really, honestly, has fallen in love with him. Which is likely the most terrifying thing for him.

Why no love, huh? :-| *wondering*

And all of your explanations are so... well, sad :-( (the "imagining it" one, though... I didn't understand it at all)

I have a hard time seeing Giovanni falling in love and admitting it to himself, which is probably why my LostandFound ends up sad.

He has so much responsibility and all this darkness and guilt and ambitions that love seems rather...trivial to him.

But he can't deny how he feels about Silver.

Well, we see him that way now, after all he's been through with both Team Rocket and having lost his son, but maybe he was different when younger... which makes the simple sadness a full-blown tragedy. Gosh, I should learn to shut up.

Also, I was thinking: game!Giovanni has it harder if we see it from LAFS, don't you think? :-( At least manga!Silver ends up caring...

I think Game!Silver cares about his father. He's just angry and bitter at being left behind.

But LAFS works a lot better in the Manga for me.

Well, yes, he does, but the last thing he says to the guy before he possibly killed himself (anybody has any idea on what happened during the Celebi event?) is just not so nice... Poor Gio died with the thought that not only did 10/11 year olds kept beating him and his team, but that his kid kinda didn't love him anymore as a father and stuff. That's just cruel...

Gosh, no! :XD2: *pokes you* Anyways, if you go by the HGSS Manga Speculation Thread, you can keep up to date with what's been happening on the Gio and Silver front in the manga... unless you also go to Serebii, in which case you already know :sweat: There's a particularly cruel recent bit; I nearly cried...

Oh god, no. I have no idea whats been happening. I need to go check.
 
It also takes a lot to squick me, but it was just a series of events that played for the worst... I really should learn to read Japanese, you know?

Hee hee hee, I remember when I was reading the shipping list at the Neverending Romance site, and I found LostAndFound there. I got this face of :-|, then of :XD2:; I was mostly neutral toward it, and I could see how it could play as either unrequited or as reciprocated... and then Pixiv happened! :sweat:

Anyways, say LAFS and PMS play as you just said, would it be a sad unrequited or an "I want my beloved to be happy" unrequited? I was just wondering...


LostandFoundshipping is very interesting to me, and I'd definitely like to see more of it. If you had any links to fics or the stuff on Pixiv (i can't read japanese x_x) then I'd be very grateful :)

You should use Google Chrome. It'll instantly translate the Japanese for you.
 
I ship AbsoluteControlShipping (Gio/Cyrus) :sweatlol:
And maybe a little bit of Gio/Jupiter, though I don't know if that has a name.
 
...Giovanni x Mewtwo. 8D *shot forever*

But not as a "love pairing", if you know what I mean. D: D:

EDIT: Oh, but Giovanni x Leaf or Red wouldn't be bad to me (understatement) either.
 
Hmmm maybe Giovanni x Red from Gen 1 9because Giovanni's sprite back then was smexy along with FR/LG sprite)

I know what you mean, and I support it. xD

And yes, AscendancyShipping is awesome. (GioxRed). Don't know what GioxLeaf is called though. Sadly though there's hardly any fics for either.

Sorry for the late reply. At Pixiv, just type in サカキ (Sakaki, Giovanni's Jap. name), and browsing through the pages will eventually get you several LAFS pics and comics and stuff...



Anyways, people, has anyone noticed yet that, for following their rather silly pseudo-scientific beliefs, the manga creators have made it almost impossible for Giovanni to be Silver's father?! :XD2: Gosh, I was laughing so hard when I connected two and two...!

The deal is with the blood types: O and AB... :sweat: Anyways, if we go ahead with believing the blood types, Red has more possibilities of being Gio's son than Silver, what with being O-type too (not to mention Sabrina's comments)

This may validate LAFS in some people's eyes, so it's kinda relevant to the topic. But I still don't like that pairing, yet I seriously thought it was kind of important to share this in case someone cares or something...

That certainly does support the "Silver is adopted" theory anyway.
 
Giovanni/Red~!
I also liked Giovanni/Silver until it was confirmed they were blood-related. I still like the cute kinda "Gio patting Silver on the head" art, but the more, eh, intimate fanart of the paring I avoid.
