I have received a lot of emails from people who cannot seem to let 'A Piece of My Heart' die. I don't want to spoil it by doing a sequel (which is why I call 'Fate?' its sequel), so I'm going to just clear up a few things here.
Jesse: died. I'm sorry about it too; I love Musashi and am an avid Rocketshipper. But I was totally into death whilst writing the end of APOMH. Sorry.
James: lived. He only got knocked unconscious for God's sake! That is just one huge misconception that I killed him off too. He got knocked unconscious, woke up and LIVED. Probably left Team R, married someone but spent all his married life missing Jesse yadda yadda yadda [insert own ending here]
Meowth: told them where Misty was before they hurt him, so he's fine too.
Rudi: got arrested. Ha ha ha ha! The police found his thumb print on Misty's locket, and was able to track him down. Team Rocket was abolished and all were put in jail (apart from James who had already left with Meowth).
Brock: married Duplica, had a H U G E family and spent his life blissfully cooking and cleaning.
Tracey: married May Oak, then decided he was gay and dated Gary. Then he decided he was bisexual and…well, I think I'll leave that to your imaginations.
Ash and Misty: lived happily ever after (but Misty always had a thing about cooking meat properly).
