Rare Pair Fest
Another event to keep the Hikago Month momentum!HOW IT WORKS:
Post anything to do with a rare pairing: Fic, art, podfic, vids, screen caps, inappropriate captions, plot bunnies, your deepest wish for the secret rare pair of your heart, five things, poems, gifs, manifestos, random squee, models out of clay, WHATEVER!
Love on what everyone else has shared.WHAT CLASSIFIES AS A RARE PAIRING:
So, my deepest hope is to inspire everyone to dig deep into their imagination and their pull out the pairings they've always wanted to write but never had the occasion or motivation to do so before, or to go crazy and create someone else's new favorite rare pair. The sky is the limit!
However, we also wanted to set down standards so that there was no confusion later. So, any pairing that has over 100 fics on AO3 is disqualified.
Which means that... Hikaru/Akira is the only pairing disqualified for this round.
I know, I know, but the second most used pairings in the fandom are Ko Yeong-ha/Yashiro and Isumi/Waya, tied at 44 fics each (to Hikaru/Akira's 399). Since no one else comes close, it's unfair to shut this fest out to otherwise under represented pairing, despite how we think of them. So, take this as inspiration to produce more content for your favorite ship and help grow their visibility on AO3!IF THERE AREN'T BATTLES TO THE DEATH, I'M NOT INTERESTED( Read more... )
Threesomes and moresomes are happily welcome, too!
