They say you fall in love with the most unexpected person at the most unexpected time. So you can be Ron and fall for Hermoine when she yells at you, or be Eleven and fall for Mike when he explains what a Snow Ball means.

But what if, Jack from Titanic falls in love with Twilight's Bella, or Kartik from Shubh Mangal Zyaada Savdhaan falls in love with Kota Factory's Jeetu Bhaiya?

It's Valentine month, the month of romance, so let's go creative with our imaginations and write an India Forums' What If...? series, that may not compete with Marvel's What If...? series, but can help Steve find someone who is not a superhero from the MCU.

Without making this more dramatic (and less dreamy) let us come to the point. 

We are in February, the month of love, and the year is 2021, the year of new beginnings (fingers crossed). And this is the "Play the Cupid" contest!

So, this contest gives you a chance to become Akshay Kumar from Ajnabee and switch partners (you can't kill someone though!)

Participants have to write a One-Shot about two characters from different movies/books/shows falling in love and hoping for new beginnings. But there is a catch, you will be paired with another dreamy-eyed writer, and the two of you will write the story as a team, in bits and pieces. Just that, you will not know who your partner is (a blind date gone wrong, if you may) For more details, scroll down!

- If you are interested in taking part in this contest, you need to sign up by posting here.

- It is compulsory to follow FFEditors account in new FF section.

- Participants will be paired to complete this contest. But that pairing will be a secret. You will not be informed who is your partner until the contest's end. 

-In Round 1, one member of the team will submit the first part of the OS, that will be forwarded to the other member, who will continue and submit the second part of the OS, for Round 2.

- The contest's theme is, obviously, romance. Sub-theme is "New Beginning".

- Total word count of the OS should to be 2000 (+/- 100 words); out of which the first member will write 1000 words and the rest shall be completed by the other team member.

- The story can be M/F, M/M, F/F, which means there is no restriction of gender in the pairing. Try to be creative and different. 

-It is compulsory to have a new pair. You cannot pair Grey with Ana or Jack with Rose. You cannot pair characters from the same universe.

- You cannot change the characterization of the characters listed below. They have to remain true to what they are. For example, Robin cannot be a vampire or Edward cannot be a human. Hermoine has to be a Wizard or Clark Kent has to be an alien.

- IF COC needs to be followed all times. Explicit content in the story is not acceptable.

- The story has to be your creation.

-The last date of sign up is 29th January 2020, 23.59 IST

- Send your entries to FFEditors. The last date of submission of the first part of the story will be 5 February 23:59 IST and the last date of the second submission would be 13 February 23:59 IST.

- The contest will be judged by Beta Readers of India Forums.

- There will be three sets of awards, Round one winner, Round two winner and Best Fiction. Not only that, the best fiction will be featured as IF Featured Fiction in the New FanFiction Section.

-For the character list, see the next post. Choose your characters from these iconic ones. We are providing a small character sketch for each character, but you can always contact us if you have any doubts.

Wonderful concept and the thread is so well written smiley9.

I've a doubt. Only these 10 characters can be mix and matched or they can paired with others too? That is, having one character from the list and other from outside?
