16th November 2016: This might seem a bit random after such a long time, but I've just been through my old YGO Shipping Challenge journals and cleared out all the broken links. This means that a fair few pairings that weren't available before (either through being reserved by a deleted account or filled by a submission that's now no longer there) are available again.

There's still no separate lists for ZeXal or Arc-V, because I'm afraid I don't keep up with those series to know the shipping names, but please do feel free to submit fanwork for them as well if you want to and I'll gladly add lists for them as needed.

Also, I took out the rule about "no submitting older works" because, let's be honest, the challenge has been inactive for a long time now, so if if ever hopes to be completed at all then allowing older works might be the way to go. So feel free to go back through your older YGO fanwork and submit any ships for the challenge that still need filled. In fact, please do! It'd be nice to see this lonely challenge get some love again, haha.

This account is not spoiler-free. Please be cautious if you're looking through fanwork for any of the series I post here.

Sadly, because I work pretty unpredictable shifts in my current job I'm not around very much to reply to messages any more. So I apologise if it takes me a while to get back to you. I appreciate feedback and do always try to get back to everyone as soon as I can though. <3

I am happy for my work to be featured in most groups that ask. However I do NOT want my work to be featured in anti groups (i.e. groups against a certain character, series or pairing) or groups that have anti-homosexuality rules. So if your group has a "NO YAOI/YURI" notice in regards to all posting of queer ships, then I probably won't let my work be featured there. Thank you for understanding.

Please ask before taking any of my work to post on other websites. This includes for use on Tumblr. I have my own account there and would prefer to post my work myself. If there's anything here that you particularly want me to post on Tumblr then let me know and I will, since most of my older stuff isn't posted there.

You said you own Pokemon Moon, right?

Around some point for when I obtain Sun, would it be possible if we could do a trade, please?
SamCyberCat Featured By Owner 5 days ago
Sure, that'd be fine!

Though since I'm not often around, if we can't manage to trade soon then what I've found is that it's quite easy to get Pokemon you need from the GTS trading system in the game. I've already obtained all of the starters and a few of the Sun-exclusives from using it.
SafeGaming89 Featured By Owner 5 days ago  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Ah, that's good because all I need is a Petilil as those are only exclusive in Moon. D: Maybe a Gengar too depending on what team I'll be assembling.

Thanks for your comment on Flowshipping and Conquestshipping 6! :iconasdfghplz:

I haven't answered your other replies yet but I haven't forgotten about them. I wish I had more time on my hands. But I still wanted to thank you for your detailed feedback. It's rather rare to get comments with more than one sentence/words so it is much appreciated. :hug:

Ishizu needs more fanart because she deserves it. I see people mostly draw Mai and Anzu although there are so many amazing women in the show. There are still some ships with Ishizu I want to draw at least once like Sororshipping and Exoticshipping~ ♥

I do not use layers for the motive. After watching some youtube videos I have learned quite a few techniques that will hopefully help me to improve my works even if I only use a program like paint. It's free program but if you get used to it there are many things you can do. It's also really easy to understand~ <3

Indeed, the links you gave me were really helpful. I didn't really know how to draw Varon and Mai so those fanfictions gave mew new inspiration and many ideas. Thanks again for sharing them. <33

Thanks again! :iconbunnyloveplz:
SamCyberCat Featured By Owner Nov 15, 2016
You're very welcome! Thank you again for making fan art of all these nice ships.

And it's no worries at all. I also struggle to find a lot of free time, so I never expect people to make replies to every comment that I make. I can tell from reading your thoughts here that you appreciate them and that's what matters. :)

And yes, poor Ishizu is often overlooked by the fandom, despite being an amazingly strong and smart character. It's such a shame... It'd definitely be nice to see more art of ships involving her, like Sororshipping. It's been years since I've drawn that one myself. ^^; Mystshipping and Visionshipping are also two that I like a lot as well. Honestly I don't have one main Ishizu shipping that I like more than any others (despite my love for Priestess Aishizu/Priest Mahaado in the AE world, but that's different to modern Ishizu), but there are a lot of ships involving her that I enjoy a lot.

It's super impressive that you can do such detailed digital colouring without layers at all. Honestly, I never would have guessed you'd made them in Paint unless you said in the description, so it's definitely a feather in your cap that you can colour that well. :)

Once again, I'm glad those fanfics gave you more inspiration for fanworks about that great ship. The author has also written fics about a lot of other YGO ships that are very well-done if you ever feel like reading through those as well, but her Varon/Mai work was probably my favourite out of everything.

See you later~! :wave:
EngelchenYugi Featured By Owner Nov 20, 2016
I'm just happy I have people around me who also enjoy rare ships~ ♥

I'm glad you have understanding for that. Reading your profile description I assume we are both in a similar situation. And now it's November. The next weeks will be extremely busy and stressful for me considering that Christmas is almost around the corner. Can't believe we already have so many customers asking for Christmas decorations... xD

It's cool to see people who share the same opinion about this. Aishizu and Mahaado would surely be an interesting couple. It's one of my faves, too. Although I can't really decide between Reach- and Plaeshipping since both ships would be interesting and have lots of drama considering their positions as priests. It's not really common for priests to devote themselves to someone else than their Pharaoh so I see lots of problems and doubts between them which would make a story worth reading. <3

It's all practice. Anyone can work with MS Paint. It's a good program if you take the time to actually work with it. I still have a long way to go until I can say that I'm satisfied with my works.

I always felt really frustrated that I couldn't find stories about Jonouchi/Yuugi so I eventually stopped reading fanfictions entirely. Those Varon/Mai stories were a true blessing and I might consider reading fanfictions again. Could you recommend some Ryuuji/Rebecca, Seto/Yuugi or Ryuuji/Ryou fanfictions? It's really hard to find anything these days because people abuse the tag system and make wrong descriptions and information on purpose. :/

I once started reading a Seto/Anzu story which was actually about Seto raping his little brother which made me almost puke... so yeah, I have really bad experiences with fanfictions. x3x)/

Best regards EngelchenYugi

Haha, the Christmas rush seems to get earlier and earlier every year, doesn't it? This year our store got sent Christmas stock before even our Halloween stock got here. ^^; So I definitely understand what it's like to be super busy at this time. Though now that you've mentioned my profile description, I should probably update that, since it still has an old notice from when someone was harassing me to send notes to people who'd blocked them ages ago. D:

Yessss, that's one of the reasons I like both Reach- and Pleashipping! They're both just so interesting and complex. It's a shame really, considering that the series did put down hints for both of those ships, it's very rare to find fans who actually support them. Honestly, outside of Priest Set, the priests in general are criminally underrated. You'd think at least Mahaado would get more attention, but even he doesn't. :(

I don't blame you - that's the same reason I'm so picky with fanfiction. There's too many terrible ones out there and I've got some horror-stories about coming across awful fanfiction in the past, especially when I was new to the fandom and didn't know how rampant Anzu-bashing was... Unfortunately I can't help you with any of those ships, though I hope to one day find good Ryuuji/Ryou fanfics as well. Most of what I read for Yu-Gi-Oh was that one author who wrote the Varon/Mai stories. Though I did also enjoy some older Yu-Gi-Oh fics from this user (who wrote a lot of female/female ships):… and I've been forever meaning to read through Nenya85's Prideshipping fics, which many people have recommended to me in the past. Hope there's some in those accounts that might take your liking. :)

...Oh gosh, that's awful! I think that takes the cake for finding bad fanfiction mislabelled as something else... D: Honestly, it's disgusting that people glorify rape at all, but even more so when it's putting Seto with his underage brother... Reading something like that would make me lose faith in fanfiction too. X__x

Anyway, take care and speak to you later! :highfive:

You're very welcome! And so far all of this series looks beautiful! :D

Thanks for your comment on my latest Prideshipping fanwork! Llama Emoji 27 (Awesome) [V2] 

I must say that I am surprised and I feel very happy that you have spent your limited time to write me such a detailed and encouraging feedback. It's like the first time in those eight years I have been here that someone actually looked at the art and refered to it in their comment. Llama Emoji-10 (Shy) [V1]

Great to know that there are others outthere who are not fond of the clichéd seme/uke thing. It's just unrealistic especially when people refer these terms to their personalities.  :/

Thank you! ♥
