Talk to me...

About writing non-canon pairings? I've never done it before, and I'm struggling a bit with it. In the pairing I'm playing with, I'd say that a situational shift that occurred *in canon* makes it a possibility, but it obviously didn't develop the way I'm going to take it.

Words of advice about staying true to character when it's clear the pairing won't/didn't really happen? General words of advice on unconventional ships? Pointers to good articles or examples of UC het fic? Doesn't have to be smut, btw. Emotionally-driven pieces are probably preferable.

Help?
