[[AC:{{Anime}} and {{Manga}}]]
* Some ''{{Naruto}}'' fanfics with the [[KissingCousins Neji]]/[[IncestIsRelative Hinata]] couple have the two arranged to marry in order to keep the Byakugan bloodline trait within the family, thus precluding any other ships.
* Many ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' fanfics with the Shinji/Rei pairing will bring up various arguments and bits of fanon that make the pairing less problematic by [[IncestIsRelative reducing the degree of genetic connection]] between the two.

[[AC:{{Film}}]]
* In ''Film/TheForceAwakens'' fandom, the idea that Rey and Finn are both sexually and romantically inexperienced due to their unusual childhood is popular among fans who ship [[OneTrueThreesome Rey/Finn/Poe]]. This allows Poe to be introduced to an established Rey/Finn relationship in the process of [[PracticeKiss 'teaching' them how to kiss]] and so on. It also has some support through WordOfSaintPaul, with John Boyega[[note]]who plays Finn[[/note]] stating that he believes Finn is a virgin.

[[AC:{{Literature}}]]
* ''Literature/HarryPotter:'' The Head Boy and Head Girl [[{{lemon}} share quarters]]. Which seems particularly odd since [[FridgeLogic the Founders use magic to keep boys from even]] ''[[FridgeLogic visiting]]'' [[FridgeLogic the girls' dormitories]], but presumably the reasoning is that anyone who earns that title probably has enough sense to avoid unfortunate mishaps. Some of the saner examples downplay the trope a bit and give them separate sleeping quarters but a shared study/living room.
** There's a million of these, really. There are also "Marriage Law fics," where the Ministry passes a law forcing purebloods and Muggle-borns to marry against their will (usually for the sake of [[HotForStudent Snape/Hermione]] or [[DracoInLeatherPants Draco]]/[[FoeYay Hermione]]). This... worked better before the last couple of books came out (not that was particularly plausible then). Another plethora of stories has Hermione wind up really being a Pureblood so that she more easily hook up with [[DracoInLeatherPants Malfoy]] or [[EnsembleDarkhorse Zabini]]. Changing a character's heritage to pair her with an unrepentant PoliticallyIncorrectVillain? UnfortunateImplications be danged!

[[AC:{{Live-Action TV}}]]
* ''Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries'': Kirk [[SlashFic can empathically sense]] when Spock is going into [[HumpOrDie Pon Farr]].
** This actually crops up in one of the ''published'' TOS books, "Killing Time", which was famously recalled and edited after the publishers realised the author was a Kirk/Spock shipper.
** Also please note that GeneRoddenberry's [[WordOfGod novelisation]] of ''Film/StarTrekTheMotionPicture'' stated that it was ''Kirk's mind'' that called to Spock across the lightyears and ended his chances at the Kolinahr. Maybe not such a stretch after all...

* ''Series/{{iCarly}}'''s [[JerkAss Sam]]/[[HollywoodNerd Freddie]] [[DoubleStandardAbuseFemaleOnMale belligerent sexual tension]] shippers use a reply that WordOfGod left on his blog as their motor, it's along the lines of "their bickering is a game, and maybe they are afraid to stop playing".

* Like the ''Buffy'' example above, Cody on ''TotalDramaIsland'' is often made bisexual, because while it's ''very'' clear that [[CasanovaWannabe Cody likes girls]], most fans prefer a bit of HoYay between him and [[AmbiguouslyGay Noah]].
* ''WesternAnimation/InvaderZim'' fandom will often justify sex with Irkens by claiming that Irkens have sex ''at all.'' Canon seems to imply that they're all grown in a big factory, and naked Irkens have no apparent genitals. It's particularly common to assume that they lay eggs.

* [[Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer Faith]] is often portrayed in fanfic as bisexual, building on her on-screen AnythingThatMoves nature. This is, of course, useful for pairing her with Buffy, Willow, or any other female character. This attitude of making a character bisexual can also extend itself to Buffy herself when pairing her up with [[IfItsYouItsOkay Willow]] in earlier seasons or Faith or Tara in later seasons.

** There's a million of these, really. There are also "Marriage Law fics," where the Ministry passes a law forcing purebloods and Muggle-borns to marry against their will (usually for the sake of [[HotForStudent Snape/Hermione]] or [[DracoInLeatherPants Draco]]/[[FoeYay Hermione]]). This... worked better before the last couple of books came out (not that was particularly plausible then). Another plethora of stories has Hermione wind up really being a Pureblood so that she more easily hook up with [[DracoInLeatherPants Malfoy]] or [[EnsembleDarkhorse Zabini]]. Changing a character's heritage to pair her with an unrepentant PoliticallyInCorrectVillain? UnfortunateImplications be danged!
