Time for one of everyone's favourite tropes! Maybe you're strangers, or rivals, or even bitter enemies. It doesn't matter. Circumstances have forced you to work together, and if you want to get through this you'll just have to deal with it.
- Under Orders: You've been teamed up by some higher power, be that a teacher, boss, or superior officer. You don't get a say in it.
- Stranded: You're stuck in the middle of nowhere together. Better work together if you want to get back to civilisation.
- Trapped: Opposite of the above - you're trapped in some dangerous confined location, and have to find a way out.
- The Only One: One or both of you has some unique skill or knowledge that means there's no-one else you can work with.
- Crisis! You've been thrown together in the midst of some natural or man-made disaster. What are petty personal differences when you're fighting for survival?
- They said we were crazy... Something's going on, and you're the only ones who seem to see it. Maybe you wouldn't have chosen to team up, but if no-one else is going to listen...
- Wildcard: None of the above, all of the above, canon-specific scenarios...go nuts.
