RARE PAIRS - January challenge!

It's RARE PAIRS month here!

*insert scrolling dance of joy here*

One of the things that I think worked so well last year for this challenge was people chiming in with suggestions/prompts. I think we are conditioned to think in our preset fav pairing in a fandom. It's possible that the pairing you love is rare, but personally, I'm a bandwagon kinda gal, until someone says something to me like Bucky/(Kate Bishop)Hawkeye I'm not going to be able to see the beauty that it could be.

So, anything goes. Leave a suggestion of a rare pair from a fandom or seven, leave a suggestion of a scenario, leave a prompt, leave an image.

The challenges can be met with written words (min of 1,000) or graphic words (min 5 icons). OR in the spirit of rare pairs, you could work together with someone you've never worked with and give us something twice as nice!

As always, hit us with any questions!

Do Rare pairs include threesomes?

If two shows/movies are in the same universe, but never appear on screen together (say Xander from BTVS and Lorne from Angel) would they be a rare pair or a crossover?

Sorry, my brain works in mysterious way.

Yes, I'm gonna say that thresomes fit in just fine here.

That specific example, I'd say good on. While it would technically qualify for both, I'm making the judgement call that same universe will fit the challenge.

If this doesn't make sense, blame it in the nyquil.

Oooh, I love this! I'm going to assume that Oliver/Roy in Arrow and Joe/Harrison, plus Barry/Eddie in The Flash might be considered rare pairs, since from what little I can see, Oliver/Felicity and Barry/Iris seem like the more common ones, followed possibly by Oliver/Tommy and Oliver/Slade in Arrow and I don't even know for The Flash.

I'm thinking of writing these rarer pairings though after certain recent scenes I saw in each show, but anyone else can feel free to use them too, if they want!

Steve/Bucky is much more popular since TWS came out in April... 8544 works on AO3 with that tag... compared to 10,468 on the Steve/Tony tag (which I consider to be super popular and terribly ubiquitous). What do you think, K? (I'm kind of thinking I need to find a new pairing :/ )

MCU Rairpairs: Tony/Sif, Tony/Nebula, Steve/Nubula, Loki/Nebula, Darcy/Gamora, Darcy/Drax

Being currently addicted to Constantine...I know the tendency is to ship John with anyone...but I love the idea of Chas and Zed for some reason...teaming up (in more ways than one) as John's support system

I'm not up to date with Constantine (and probably won't be able to write anything with him), but are you familiar with/would you read something in the Injustice comics-verse?
Jan. 17th, 2015 09:47 pm (UTC)
I'm not familiar with the comic world in general actually...bad me, I know. I should...for Hellblazer, XMen, and Avengers...but I haven't yet. Doesn't mean I won't read it though :D

Dearest K, I have written 4874 words for the pairing Harry/Ron (from Harry Potter). I am hoping to write more over the course of the month, but wanted to let you know that this challenge rocks and I had fun!

Fandom: Inception
Pairing: Eames/Ariadne
Prompt: forgery lessons

Stargate (SG1/SGA), O'Neill/McKay. I've seen a few good Slave!fics with Shepard getting ownership of McKay, and something along the same lines with Jack would be cool. Or Rodney sticks around the SGC after the events of 48 Hours to fix Carter's bad protocols, and Jack slowly and unwillingly gets to like him. (Or you know, doesn't and there's some darkfic after Daniel dies and Jack gets tortured by Ba'al.)

So, can we just write rare pairs and drop them here? In that case, I've written 2.4k of Mycroft/Sherlock/Irene for Sherlock BBC.
Jan. 19th, 2015 08:19 pm (UTC)
You absolutely can!!! WOOHOO!!!
Jan. 16th, 2015 10:01 pm (UTC)
Fandom: Arrow
Pairings: Malcolm/Moira, Sin/Sara, Sin/Thea(/Roy), Deadshot/Harley Quinn, Slade/Shado

Fandom: Injustice: Gods Amongs Us (games and comics)
Pairings: Harley Quinn/Oliver Queen, Harley Quinn/Dinah Lance, or all the three of them together :D

Fandom: Batman (Arkham games, Nolan movies, Injustice...)
Pairings: Harley Quinn/Scarecrow, Barbara Gordon/Anarky, Riddler/Ivy

Fandom: Sons of Anarchy
Pairings: Tully/Juice, or heck, anyone/Juice

I'm also willing to try my hand on any of these characters (also in other pairings), if anyone wants to throw me prompts or scenarios. No promises, though, sorry. My muses are very fickle. :D

For comment fic, possibly the first honest to God Joe West/Caitlin Snow fic on the internet? How do I ship these things? Why do i ship these things?

came out in front when I was hiding -- The Flash, Joe West/Caitlin Snow, 848 words
Jan. 22nd, 2015 06:50 pm (UTC)
Excellent pairing!!!!!
Jan. 22nd, 2015 08:36 pm (UTC)
Thank you!

I'm blaming it purely on Jesse L Martin and the lack of fic about his character.

Of course, that is because the fan girls all writing for the Flash are probably young enough to be his daughter and I am not, but whatever....
