A woman wearing sunglasses looks over her shoulder into a mirror and the reflection shows her looking back but also looking over her shoulder into a mirror, her reflection endlessly repeated in a space that's delineated by blue light on one side and pink on the other.

june something day 2

Day 2: You've got your OTP, you have to throw a third into the mix (from the same fandom), creating an OT3. Who is the OTP, and in your opinion, why would they make a perfect third for them? Bonus question: What about adding a third to your OTP from a different fandom? Who and why?

The obvious one is my Smallville OTP, Clark/Lois, and the added person from the same fandom would be Oliver to form my OT3. I think they really balance each other out. Clark and Oliver have canonically had a hot and cold relationship, but they care about one another and they have mostly settled down by s10. Lois and Oliver really became good friends in the final seasons, and of course Clark and Lois are great together. Does Bruce Wayne count as a different fandom? Because otherwise, I got nothing. I'm kind of picky on ships. Someone on Tumblr made a great post comparing Steve Rogers and Clark so there is some potential there.

Another OTP I have is Rory/Jess and a third from their own fandom could be Paris. She is a lot and I still don't know if her and Jess would work but I think Rory in the middle would make it easier. I do have a fascination with Jess/Peyton from OTH so she might be an interesting third from another fandom, because I can kind of see her getting along with Rory and all three of them finding common ground.
