Aw, that was so sweet and heroic just like a fairy tale! I love how much Drew complained and called May a sadist as he climbed, yet still went through with it for her. That was so romantic. It was an overall cute and funny story

Ugh, I love love /love/ your Contestshipping stories. This is adorable. I haven't checked the archives in a while but I am so incredibly glad I came across this story, because now I can reread all your other stories. Keep up the amazing writing.
Also, just a side note - I love Twisted.

Wow. I was actually gonna give up when I realized this was a total AU story but for some reason I kept on. (No offense, I was just looking for something...)
But that was actually kind of amazing! I loved it! Well, it was a bit wordy in places because I'm impatient and all, but still!
I loved...absolutely loved Drew's determination. Every time he got closer to his goal (while on the mountain) and came across an obstacle, he kept thinking he didn't get this far to die or fail in his endeavor. It was so admirable. The line that stuck out for me was, "He wasn't about to come all this way only to die because of one dragon." It impressed me so much, especially when you basically gave us a scale of how big his sword (and indirectly, him) was to the dragon. That made me conjure the image of him standing before a very large, ready to cook, turkey...
Actually, when you first mentioned dragon, I was thinking of Charizard. XD
I'm kind of glad you didn't get too into all the details of how he defeated the dragon (woah, fairytale flashback for a moment...).
I loved Drew calling May a sadist and cursing her throughout this whole journey, though in truth he's so much in love with her to go on the journey at all. Adorable.
I guess what made it better than the usual fairytale-esque story was the slightly irritated, slightly cynical, can't-believe-I'm-doing-this POV style. It wasn't bland, but it wasn't directly in Drew's first person perspective (which is sometimes too limiting and can get really boring so fast). You conveyed his feelings with sentences like "…and the dragon that was most likely waiting for him at the top…" and "…just his luck that this year happened to be the hundredth since the last bloom" and "But here he was, trying to get this blasted flower from this blasted mountain covered in nothing but large boulders and dirt…" and (what might be one of my favorites) "…was supposed to kill this large, fearsome dragon with his dinky sword." It made it feel so real. It made for some comic relief in this very grave situation, though obviously it's not amusing for anyone in the situation.
I was already thinking the ending might be predictable, that May had made her requirement in order to get rid of all suitors. But then that last line just makes you smile, as it's so unexpected. I mean, I remember the line earlier, about the legend involving the flower and true love but I didn't see that coming!
Very nicely done! I think I'll favorite this story, and maybe check out what else you've written. Thanks for the read!

I find it interesting that I like the supernaturalism twist in a story about fictional characters who regularly defy the laws of physics. That is, for such an outlandish plot, it was really, really good. I think it's cool that you basically only used the characters names and the shipping, and made up the rest.
The only thing that was mildly confusing was the fact that the flower bloomed at the end. I was under the impression that he had picked the flower in full bloom. But anyway, great job! Loved it.

Very cute. Although, Drew, The Drew, being beaten up by flowers? Soooooooooo funny...
| pokemon-finatic chapter 1 . 1/25/2012
That was great!
After all that, and she did t want him to do it in the first place...

Oh yay! You're baaaaaaack! So um, the story was fantabulous. Drew's soooooooo cuteee. :)) And don't let that annoying plagiarizer get to ya. :))

Dialogue is written as "Hello," he said or "Hello!" he said, never "Hello." He said or "Hello." he said or "Hello," He said or "Hello" he said. The only exception to this is if the next sentence doesn't contain a speech verb, in which case it's written as "Hello." He grinned, never "Hello," he grinned or "Hello," He grinned or "Hello." he grinned. Note that something isn't a speech verb just because it's a sound you make with your mouth, so generally stuff like laughed or giggled is in the second category. Furthermore, if you're breaking up two complete sentences it's "Hi," he said. "This is it." not "Hi," he said, "this is it." or "Hi," he said "this is it." And if you're breaking up a sentence in the middle, it's "Hi. This," he said, "is it." If there's no speech verb in the break, you use a dash, like "Hi. This - " He looked around. "- is it." And the same punctuation and capitalization applies to thoughts.
And this really seems to have nothing to do with pokemon or the characters. There's just a very tenuous connection with roses.

A mini adventure!

Yay, you're back! I stumbled on your story The Sunday List of Dreams, and I was hooked. And when I saw this oneshot come up, I just HAD to read it.
I definitely understand, I just hate it when nothing comes to me, and I can't write down a single word because of no inspiration and/or motivation. I'm glad to hear that your inspiration is coming back! :)
I definitely agree with you about the plagiarizer; I would be extremely angry if someone copied my stories and posted them up as their own. I hope that the issue will finally be solved (read: account gets deleted an we never see them again.)
Anyways, my point (sorry, I tend to ramble a lot :P): I loved this story, you are an AMAZING writer, and I can't wait for more stories from you. Keep up your incredible work!
