* In ''Fanfic/{{The Racket-Rotter Chronicles}}'', Sinbad proposes to Shark [[spoiler: on the head of a giant mutant fish. While using a teddy bear.]]
* The [[Fanfic/{{Cinderjuice}} Contractually Obligated Chaos]] series has two for the main pairing, the first of which is ''literally'' a contract ([[DontExplainTheJoke hence the name of the series]]). The second is slightly more traditional, in the sense that there's a ring, but there's no actual proposal; he just slips a ring onto her hand while she's not paying attention. As he points out, the contract makes asking her sort of redundant anyway.

* Wolf's proposal to Virginia in ''Series/TheTenthKingdom''. Not only does he preface the evening, when Virginia initially tries to weasel out of dinner, by saying he "spent a lot of time planning this spontaneous evening", he: has a song composed especially for her, played by a string quartet ''on the roof of their carriage'' (which is filled to overflowing with flowers); rents an entire restaurant just for the two of them, with a meal consisting of 13 main courses; and purchases the most expensive engagement ring he can find--a magical singing ring with a saccharinely cute cherub face and shimmering, bell-like voice which extols the virtues of their love to Virginia. She turns him down out of outrage when she learns he spent money they could have used to accomplish their goals on the proposal instead. At the end of the miniseries, he tries again, in a much more restrained manner, and she accepts. Even better is after the first disaster, Wolf throws the ring into a river and viewers see it eaten by a fish. At the end, while eating dinner, Virginia cuts open her fish and [[BrickJoke finds the ring]].

* Played with in the [[ComicBook/{{Beetlejuice}} comic book adaptation]] of the ''WesternAnaimation/{{Beetlejuice}}'' cartoon. Beetlejuice ends up engaged as the result of a very old and weird law in the Neitherworld, which states that if a man spits his chewing gum into a woman's face, even accidentally, he has to marry her. The fact that he and the lady in question are complete strangers doesn't mitigate the law.

* In the ''Series/TheBeverlyHillbillies'' story [[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10895548/1/The-Big-Shindig ''The Big Shindig'']] Elly May's proposal is interrupted when eavesdropping Granny and Cousin Pearl say "yes" on her behalf. Jethro's marriage proposal to Jane Hathaway happens as Jethro is in bed [[ItMakesSenseInContext recovering from a gunshot wound]] as well as a stern lecture from Jed Clampett (the [[RunningGag long-postponed]] "long talk" Jed intends to have with Jethro throughout the series).

* In the ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'' fanfic "[[FanFic/ElementalChessTrilogy Flowers of Antimony]]," one of these takes place at the wedding of the above-mentioned Ed and Winry. The newlyweds hatch a plan to push together the fandom's favorite MaybeEverAfter pairing, [[spoiler:Roy and Riza, by turning Winry's wedding bouquet into a sort of shot put. She aims the weaponized flowers at Roy's head, Riza instinctively pushes him out of the way before she realizes what she's catching, and HilarityEnsues]]. Dialogue later in the story does, at least, indicate that a real proposal was coming soon anyway.

* ''The Literature/VorkosiganSaga'' contains multiple examples:
** Cordelia's engineering of Kou's proposal to Drou in ''Barrayar''.
** Miles repeats Cordelia's performance with Baz and Elena in ''The Warrior's Apprentice.''
** Ekaterin proposes to Miles while he is being (falsely) accused of murder[[note]]of ''her first husband'', no less[[/note]]. His response: "Of course! Now?"
*** It got wackier. Directly behind her were Miles's [[AmazinglyEmbarrassingParents Parents]] who just can't wait to introduce themselves.
