New Challenge: Unusual Relationships

A few months back we asked our members what sort of challenges and prompts they might like to see here on Raising Hell.

The following challenge was originally put forth by janes_membrane. We've tweaked it a tad, hope you don't mind, JM! Many thanks for the suggestion.

UNUSUAL RELATIONSHIPS

Write a story - something between episodes, behind the scenes, alternative takes, filler pieces, etc. - using an unusual character pairing. What constitutes an unusual pairing? As long as one of the two characters is a secondary or lesser-used canon character, everything's copacetic.

Note: We're aiming for uncommon groupings, so while Original Cindy is a secondary character and it would fit the guidelines of the challenge to pair her with a main character, try to be a bit creative and put her with someone other than Max, Logan, Alec or Sketchy. (For example: Asha, Gem, Mole...) :D

Stories can be any genre or rating that you choose, romantic angles optional.

Good luck creating and happy writing, people!

This is awesome and I'm bubbling with ideas!

But is Ames White a Major character? (being Season 2's bad guy and all...)

Thanks for the prompt guys!

You're very welcome - although it was janes_membrane's idea, of course.

Right from the top of my hat, I'd say White was a main character for exactly the reason you stated, OBC.

Shay, what do you say? *gloats over her evil plan to let Shay appear as the 'bad cop' if she says "no, he wasn't"* :-P

*laughs*

I think he's considered a main character for the very reasons you stated, OBC. I'm sorry I can't play unfair, even though I sorely want to. But you can always have Alec or Logan (hell, even OC or Sketchy) interact with White - tell a story between the lines or play out a hostage situation or something evil and fun all at once :) There's so much room for naughtiness...!

"There's so much room for naughtiness...!"
With White there is for sure, very much so. *rubs hands in anticipation*

...and thankful! Let's not forget thankful :) Hey JM, how you been?

Btw, Twinchy, you gave me this wild idea while we were chatting the other night and I sat down to write it (which I have since forgotten, mind you) and it might even have worked - with some minor tweaks - for this very challenge! But of course I left the document open and my computer just HAD to perform another "critical %$@!-ing update" and restart without saving. 

*sigh* Sometimes the beloved technology is an epic failure. Bastard.

O.M.G. Gah, I'm so sorry, babes! Is there any chance you may recover what was lost (the time factor not withstanding)? *crosses fingers*

And JM, naturally we are very thankful.

Sadly, no chance of recovery, Twinch. *sigh*

Who knows, though. I may yet surprise people with an addition to the story jar. *shrug* Stranger things have happened.

I'm holding up a mirror, Twinchy. Holding up a mirror...
