RARE PAIR CHALLENGE!!!

So I'm late, but... IT'S RARE PAIR MONTH!!!

*dance of joy* *dance of joy* *dance of joy*

I do love the idea of rare pairs. It's one of my fav things! The problem I find is that some pairs occur to be by the way the writers write them in canon or the way they snark. But a lot of others just don't occur to me. I'm just conditioned that when I think Inception I think Arthur/Eames and Yusuf/Mal never crosses my mind. It happens with every fandom I play in. I just can't see beyond my nose until someone adjusts my glasses.

So let's chat for a bit about fandoms and rare pairs. Leave a suggestion of a rare pair from a fandom or seven, leave a suggestion of a scenario, leave a prompt, leave an image.

Also - This year let's not define rare pairs as what is rare to fandom, but what is rare for you. If you've always shipped Stiles/Allison take a stab at something different for you!

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!

I blame my side-eye interest in Fred/Hermione because of the OMG of James, Oliver, and Emma, in that one scene of Goblet of Fire.

More if I think of any....

As I like to think of myself as somewhat of a rare pair aficionado, this challenge is great for me. Especially with that definition of rare pairs being something rare for me rather than fandom - I'll have to think of some more rare ships I haven't written yet.

I do have a question, though: can the 1000 words be spread across multiple works, or just one fic of 1000+ words? Thanks!

Multiple works that add up to 1000 words is fantastic!

YAY, my icon! I love that you love it! ;-)

I am working on a WIP that is a rare H50 pair (Steve/Adam) - not so rare for me as I've already written it once (although only ONCE), but I'm going to work on that, because I need to get more WIPs done. This is a sequel to the earlier fic, and there's more angst in store all around!

And good luck to everyone else! ;-)

I've done more Steve/Adam than you have? THAT IS UNBELIEVABLE!!!

Now go write me Danny/Charlie! :P DO IT!!

Rare pairs, yes! There are so many rare pairs that need more attention, and new pairs for me that I recently started to ship and haven't written anything for yet, so I am excited!

Arthur/Eames and Yusuf/Mal never crosses my mind.

Me too! But now thanks to fanfics, Arthur/Eames are one of my OTPs.

EEEEEE They are my OTP of OTPs! And with that fandom, nobody else occurs to me!

I can't wait to see what you do!!

So hmmm... if it's rare to ME then it still counts? That opens the possibilities, I think. I don't write in many fandoms so I'll have to think on this a bit.

Also, at the grocery store on Saturday, my 15-year-old was talking about the last episode of the most recent season of The Vampire Diaries and how they killed off someone. My husband, not an outward shipper, didn't understand her angst and then the kid says, "THEY WERE MY OTP!" and I stumbled and walked right into the dairy case. HAH.

All my pairs are rare pairs but since you've broadened the definition to mean rare to me, that will need more work!

Mmmm, rare pairs... I'm tempted to do a crossover rare pair for H50/SGA. Or some stargate Rodney/AnyoneWhoIsn'tAJerkToHimInCanon. It's good timing for me, since I'm feeling cynical towards both of my usual OTPs at the moment, but end up being dragged back into them just to have something with my boys in it to read.

Lorne/Rodney? Or Carson - I don't recall either of them being jerks to Rodney in canon

Will there be a round-up post at the end of the month or do we comment to this post if we finish any?

Do rare threesomes count? if they do, then I have one for you. Arthur/Eames/Adrianne

I think I'm going to try and get some love for my crossover rare pairs.

Rare threesomes should TOTALLY be a thing. And someone should write a slightly dubconish H50 Steve/Danny/Bullfrog(Nick Taylor) for me, uh, for REASONS. Or a dark Steve'sWholeSEALTeam/Danny eek, hide my kinks.
