RARE PAIRS!!! DAY 1

March 2017-rare pairs banner.jpg

Oh yeah! We're at it again! H and I are hitting you up for more words and graphics in new and different ways! This month is RARE PAIRS! It's going to be exciting. (we are still looking for prompts here go and leave a few. PLEASE!)

We are going to hit you with prompts and thoughts and such every day. I'll leave a thread here for you to put up rare pair and scenarios in specific fandoms you might like to see or ask about.

Rules:
1) Rare Pair means that the pairing is new to you. Even if it's a canon pairing in a fandom you dabble in all the time, if you haven't done the pair yet it qualifies. Cross-overs will count. Edit: If your pairing is something you've done before but is rare in fanfic/fangraphics double the counts to qualify.
2) Rare Pair does not have to be romantic pairing. New Buddy pairing works too.
3) 1,000 total words or 3 banners/10 icons (in any combination of multiple or single contributions) will get you a participation reward (We don't know what yet, you know H and I aren't that organized).
4) Creations should be posted before March ends for rewards.


Today's prompt: I did that too as a kid!


Let the wording begin!

sort of a crossover bunny...
because I haven't seen anything of the sort yet (though maybe its out there)...any sort of interaction between Cassian Andor (Rogue One) and either Han Solo or Luke Skywalker)...I mean...Cassian gets around...Han gets around...no reason the CAN'T have crossed paths...
And I'm good with any rating...anything at all...lol.

and another because its been tickling my brain and I haven't figured out what to do with it yet...

John Constantine and Jesse Custer (Preacher)...I imagine they'd be interesting drinking buddies and all around troublemakers ;)

Prompt 1: Sparks fly when members of an NCIS team (can be original, Los Angeles, or New Orleans) clash with Hawaii Five-0 while investigating a series of murders at Pearl Harbor.

Rare Pairing: Any member from NCIS/Any member from Hawaii Five-0

Pairing does not have to be romantic - or even amicable (can be rivals etc)

Just to clarify a point - rare pairs are absolutely my thing, and there are quite a few pairs I write where I'm the only one who appears to be writing them. As set out above, the rules mean that I can't use any of the rare pairs I've already written? And will this be the same for the whole month?

That is what it means, but I'll tell you what - You do a rare to the fandom that you've dabbled in before but double the counts above and well call you participated! Deal?

double checking - if I write one I've already done, I double the word count? That's fair, thank you! (I'm watching a lot of the WB shows and since I'm *ahem* an older demographic, the characters that I'm most interested in are usually the parents, and that can make it very slim pickings for pairings!)

I feel a little creepy sometimes myself when I think about how young the pretty young actors are.

AWESOME! GO FORTH AND WORD!

Title: Mary Jane
Fandom: Warehouse 13
Rare Pair: Claudia Donovan and Dr. Vanessa Calder
Rating: G
Warnings: drug mention
Word Count: 250
A/N: I loved this prompt, so am really happy that buddy pairings are allowed here, as I don't write romance. So, yeah, this is not meant in a romantic way, just in a friendship way. I really like these two, especially since I just rewatched Love Sick. They have far too little screentime.
Summary: Claudia and Vanessa talk about their mutual experience with Mary Jane. Set during Love Sick.

Here on AO3

Just checking as my brain is screwed on backwards tonight 1000 words minimum, 1000 words maximum or 1000 exactly?

There is never a maximum!

A minimum of 1000 words will get you a participation reward! If you do 100,000 I'll put some Swedish fish in the mail to you! ;)

Enjoy!

Title: Two Halves
Fandom: NCIS
Rare Pair: Anthony DiNozzo/Brad Pitt
Rating: G
Word Count: 1022
Summary: Plato talks of two halves of one being split into two separate entities, Tony meets his perfect match.

Hi there, would it be possible to rename the challenge to "New Pairs" or some such next time? :D The terminology is confusing, as rare pair usually denotes a pairing that is rare in a fandom (Fanlore article ). I just got excited over this challenge until I read the description xD

Hello!

I have put in an edit that you are welcome to participate with a pair that isn't rare to you, but is to fandom!

Enjoy!

A little late (this will be my other theme of the month, I feel!) but 606 words of The Flash Joe/Caitlin.

http://archiveofourown.org/works/10080683

Also, a question. If we write a pairing that is new to us, that is not related to the prompt of the day (say for the Porn Battle Prompt Stack. Speaking in purely hypothetical terms) I know we can count it for totals, but can we post a link to it in the most recent prompt post for that day? Even if it's unrelated? Again, speaking hypothetically...,

You are not late, rare pair goes the whole month.

And you do not need to use the prompt. Go with what inspires you.

YAY YOU!!!!! YAY WORDS!!
