Well, since most of my fanfics are based on the Pokemon anime, I figure I should give my stance on it.
I personally like the show for the most part (except for Ash) but whenever I catch an episode, or remember when I used to watch it regularly, I remember seeing so much wasted potential. That's the main reason why I am writing fanfics on this and not something I otherwise enjoy.
I do have opinions on certain shippings, however (by the way, I think that is a ridiculous term, but whatever)-
Pokeshipping-Misty is a bit too domineering and controlling, and that is the wrong kind of woman for Ash, but I go crazy for redheads, so I would probably pick her up myself :) UPDATE: Since visiting Pokemopolis, I'm starting to see this in a slightly more positive light. Still like Advancedshipping more though.
Pearshipping- First off, the age gap between the two (at least 5 years) puts me off, and secondly, I like the idea of Dawn being gay, and not in a pervy way (well maybe a little :) ) Still, I can see it a lot easier than Ash and Misty.
Abilityshipping-I somewhat like this one, except Anabel only appeared in I think two episodes, and I somehow doubt we'll see her again, so what was the point of her monologue?
Advancedshipping- Winner by default, but there are other reason why I like it. The student-teacher dynamic is intriguing, and it's understandable and even sympathetic as to why May would like Ash. When this was repeated with Dawn, it felt cheap, and May and Ash's age gap is much less severe (3 years at the most).
Contestshipping- Drew's an ass, and deserves to die alone, preferably of syphilis. I despise this one more than any other one (which is weird because I usually like narcissist. Example: The Sixth Doctor is nowhere near my least favorite one.)
Gymshipping- Brock and Misty have no chemistry together, and I think Brock would be better off without someone like Misty.
Palletshipping- I can't see either sides of this one as homosexuals.
Appealshipping- Zoey is definitely a lesbian, and nothing is set in stone about Dawn (that sock cap is a bit butch)
Ikarishipping- Paul's an ass, and deserves to die alone, preferably being gored by Ash's Tauros
Rocketshipping- I don't like Team Rocket that much, so I don't really care if they're doinking each other or not.

List of Doctors in Doctor Who (from favorite to least favorite)
(1) Seventh Doctor (Sylvester McCoy) -To me, this version highlighted everything about the Doctor as a character that I love. The mystery, the secrecy, the silliness, the eccentricity, the intelligence, and the sense of wonder that comes from traveling with him. Plus, it helps that he travels with my favorite companion, Ace, and stars in two of my favorite stories, Remembrance of the Daleks and The Curse of Fenric. Whenever I think of the Doctor, I don't think of a long scarf or a pinstripe suit or a bow tie, I think of that jacket, sweater, hat, and umbrella. If I ever get to write for Doctor Who, I'm giving my Doctor an umbrella. And a hat. Every good Doctor should have a hat.
(2) Second Doctor (Patrick Troughton) - It saddens me that this is my second favorite Doctor, because he's also the one with the least amount of surviving stories. If any more had survived, he might have ended up as my favorite, though I doubt it. Regardless, he's one of the two Doctors that's a bit of template for the others, a template used by McCoy. He's not as mysterious as Hartnell was, but he has that lovable oddness about him that makes him just as alien, but a bit more likable. Of course, that doesn't mean he couldn't get serious when he needed to be, but even when he got a bit dark, he never really shifted in personality, he just adapted it to a different situation. Remember this for later in the list.
(3) Fourth Doctor (Tom Baker) - This Doctor is obviously going to be on the list. No one who's ever seen a Fourth Doctor story has a bad thing to say about him. He's been Doctor for longer than any other one, and while it started to unravel a bit towards the end of his tenure, a lot of hit wasn't his fault. He's easily the most eccentric (you can see I'm a bit prejudice toward the odder Doctors), in both his appearance and his mannerisms, and a bit of it is mostly cosmetic, he has a childish quality to him, which is a great juxtaposition for when he gets serious. This goes back to what I said about template Doctors, as a lot of Tom Baker's performance seems to stem from Troughton's, except it focuses more on the eccentric part of him.
(4) Eleventh Doctor (Matt Smith) -What?! Matt Smith above The Great Tennant TM?! Yes, but I'll get to why when I talk about No. 10. In the new series, Matt Smith is the only Doctor whose performance I've more-or-less consistently liked in all of his episodes (Victory of the Daleks notwithstanding.) He's, again, a quirky Doctor, but unlike Tom Baker's Doctor, a lot of his quirks have substance. It's mostly in the way he talks. How he talks really fast, and runs his sentences together, and never really stops thinking, and has to speak every little thought that comes to him. I think the episode The Lodger is a good example of what I'm talking about. The story is pretty thin and boring, but he makes it watchable.
(5) Sixth Doctor (Colin Baker) - For the record, I've never listened to a single one of the audio plays. So why is Colin Baker ranked so highly based on his stories? First, I think I tend to be a bit more forgiving of his stories than most people, probably because he was the third Doctor I had ever watched, after Tennant and Smith. Yes, Timelash, The Two Doctors, and Terror of the Vervoids were crap, but Mindwarp was good, I really liked Vengeance on Varos, I kinda liked The Mysterious Planet, Revelation of the Daleks was okay-ish, and while I can't in good faith call The Twin Dilemma good, it is nowhere near the worst Doctor Who story of all time. Secondly, while he wasn't exactly nice, he wasn't nearly as evil or nasty as most people will describe him as. He was still a hero, and he didn't seem any meaner than Hartnell was. Plus, Colin Baker just throws himself into the roll with such fervor that I can't hate No. 6. Yes, he and Peri squabbled a lot, but I don't really like Peri all that much. I think she complained and messed up way too much. Heck, I don't even mind his coat.
(6) Fifth Doctor (Peter Davison) - I've seen 8 Davison stories, and for the life of me I cannot pin anything remarkable about him that I like or dislike. Davison's a fine actor, and he's in a lot of good stories, like Kinda and Enlightenment, but even at his best, he just seems to be a bit of a tag-along to the events of the stories. He goes in, he explores, he discovers, he's shocked, he solves. Most of the personality goes into the companions, and most of the companions are unlikable. As such, most of his personality comes from conversation (or should I say arguments) from companions, so at its worst written (Four to Doomsday, Black Orchid, The King's Demons, yeah, I don't really like Terrance Dudley. He's no Terrance Dicks) he seems to be a bit more like a guy vacationing with his dysfunctional family than a traveler showing off the wonders of the universe. At its best written, however, he does come off as genius, likable, polite, and sensitive, for what it's worth.
(7) Tenth Doctor (David Tennant) -
(8) Eighth Doctor-Paul McGann
(9) Third Doctor-Jon Pertwee
(10) First Doctor-William Hartnell
(11) Ninth Doctor-Christopher Eccleston

Star Trek Movies (I-X)
Star Trek: The Motion Picture- Well, the story is basically a really good episode of Star Trek stretched to 2 hours. It's a good story, but not good enough for a movie. Also, the special effect sequences are reeeeeeealy long and boring. I like 2001: A Space Odyssey, but Star Trek should know better than to copycat.
Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan- KHAAAAN! Enough has been said about this awesome movie, so I'll just say one thing: It's the movie that inspired me to read Moby-Dick (even though it turned out I didn't like it. It was too slow paced, and had too much whaling trivia in it. I just wanted it to get on with the story).
Star Trek III: The Search for Spock- While it kinda cheapens Spock's death by bringing him back at the end of the very next movie, most of the movie is still pretty great. The only real weak point is that Christopher Lloyd, between Taxi and Back to the Future (1.21 Jiggowats), doesn't make a convincing villain, although he tries his level best.
Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home- From "Double dumbass on you!" to "Nuclear Wessels", this is the most quotable and most wide-reaching of the Star Trek movies. The only complaint is that the anti-whale hunting message is a bit thick, but that is a very, very small complaint, and, be honest, its not exactly a bad message.
Star Trek V: The Final Frontier- Worst Star Trek movie ever. The moral of the story appears to be that James T. Kirk is AWESOME, but William Shatner can't do anything. One part that really stuck out was the teenage Klingon commander, who wanted to kill Kirk because OMG HE'S FRIGGIN CAPTAIN KIRK IF YOU SCRATCHED HIS CHEEK YOU COULD USE THE BLOOD DROPS TO PLEASURE FIVE MILLION WOMEN AT ONCE!!1!!!!11!!!1!!! And then his commanding officer makes him APOLOGIZE like a 4-year old who stole an Easter egg from his cousin.
Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country- Probably the most overlooked Star Trek movie, it's also one of the best. Seriously, I love it. It's probably my favorite movie with the original cast.
Star Trek: Generations- The scenes with Data were pretty funny, but the movie on a whole is pretty mediocre. This is not helped by Kirk's anti-climactic death.
Star Trek: First Contact- I love The Next Generation, and this movie is a perfect reason why. The Borg, while a clear rip-off of the Cybermen from Doctor Who (told you 'bout that copycattin, Star Trek), look fantastic, Picard's shell-shock/trauma-induced revenge, which ends with him trashing his briefing room, is really neat, and the scene in the holodeck is my favorite from any Star Trek movie, even though it contradicts his character from the series.
Star Trek: Insurrection- I couldn't even tell you the plot if I wanted to. Like The Motion Picture, it just an average episode of The Next Generation, only instead of the Stanley Kubrick special effects we get...tedious subplots. The only worthwhile scene is when Worf, Picard, and Data do a sing-along.
Star Trek: Nemesis- They try to play it off that it's a younger version of Picard, but facts are facts: the clone looks nothing like him. It's actually pretty insulting when you consider that Star Trek has been doing evil clone stuff since the Original Series back in the 60s. Also, everything's so damn green and black, it's like they stole all the scenery from Alien. Brent Spiner, who played Data, was the co-writer of this movie, and if you look close enough, his duel role and Wrath of Khan-style death suggest he was going through a Dustin Diamond-sized ego trip.
Fics up for adoption: These are fanfics that I don't feel like writing for various reasons. Anyone can pick these up and use them as their own, unless I decide to take it off of this list and write it myself. I also may write it myself anyway it I don't like how the person who picked it up is writing it. Also, let me know if you are going to adopt it so I can read it myself. :)
Pokemon/Scrubs crossover: Basically the situations that happen on Scrubs with the characters from Pokemon. It would take place at least 30 years after the show, to make up for the age discrepancies. The characters would correspond as such-
Elliot-O.C., probably a Nurse Joy
Jordan-May or Misty
Janitor-Either James (with Jesse as Lady), Paul, or an O.C.
Ben Sullivan (Jordan's brother with leukemia)-Max
And Misty and Brock would both probably replace Dr. Cox's sister in the episode where Jack gets baptized
Also, Ash should totally call Gary 'Gare-bear"
Kamen Rider Poke'-Pokemon/Kamen Rider Crossover: Basically Ash has disappeared for 2-10 years, taking with him only Pikachu and Heracross. From there, it could go two ways.
#1-The Team Rocket Trio, having given up hope of catching Pikachu, have decided to take Ash's other Pokemon instead. His friends, whoever you want them to be, fight valiantly to fend them off, but the bad guys actually manage to win, until a strange man on a stylish motorcycle shows up, revealed to be Ash. He does a quick speech, dons a odd looking belt, picks Heracross' pokeball, shouts "Henshin" and the top of his lungs, and attaches the ball to the belt. Then he gets covered in blue armor and fights off Team Rocket as Kamen Rider Poke'
#2-Pokemorphs, pokemon/human splices (an idea that has been kicked around fanfiction for a while, and would be perfect for kaijin) have appeared and start terrorizing Cerulean City (or whatever city you choose). May (or whoever you want the love interest to be) is attacked by one (The Spinerak or Ariados Pokemorph, to keep the tradition of fighting the spider kaijin first) at first, but is saved when Ash appears, again on a stylish motorcycle, and transforms to fight it off.
Couple of specifics I think you should include-
The belt should only work with Bug-type Pokemon (anyone who watches Kamen Rider will know why), and Ash should have a Heracross, Pinsir, and Scyther as his three forms that he will change between. The Pokemon's move set will play an integral part in Ash's finishing moves
Horn Attack- Rider Chop
Harden (which he can learn through breeding, so shut up)- Charge Up
Brick Break- Rider Punch
Megahorn- Rider Kick (a running kick, like in Kuuga, or maybe Blade)
Brick Break- Rider Punch
Vicegrip- Rider Chop
Focus Energy- Charge Up
Guillotine- Rider Kick (roundhouse kick, like Kabuto)
Scyther (he should have two swords)-
Air Slash- Rider Slash
Fury Cutter- Rider Cutting (y'know, like Gattack)
Swords Dance- Charge Up
X-Scissor- Rider Kick (bicycle kick, like Ouja in Ryuki)
Also, if you are going to have a second rider, make him use two Pokemon at once, like Ledian and Ariados.
Results for Who is your guess on who the Master will be in Pokemon: The New Doctor?
James: 2 votes
Paul: 2 votes
Giovanni: 1 vote
Drew: 0 votes
Ritchie: 0 votes
So it seems the winner is...INCONSEQUENTIAL!!!!! I had already chosen who the winner would be! None of your votes mattered! HAHAHAHAHAHAHA yes.
Seriously though, I was going to let my fans choose for themselves, but then I reasoned that that would ruin the surprise. One key component in classic Doctor Who was suspense, and letting readers choose for themselves kinda works against that. Sorry for wasting time.
