FANDOM


Hello, and welcome to my page guide series! In this series, I'll be showing you how to create article pages for each of our primary categories. In this endeavor, I hope to make creation of article pages easier and more uniform.

Today I'll be teaching you how to make a pairing page. In the first section, I'll break down the pieces of the page and what to put in each one. At the end, I'll have a base code you can copy and paste for easier page creation, if you'd like.

---

Title

First things first: Name your page. Just take the common form (i.e. "Fitz" instead of "Fitzroy") of the characters' first names and string them together with an "and." Ex: "Sophie and Fitz."

If you're making a pairing page involving characters that are already involved in pairings (Ex. Sophie), you'll want to put the common form first. For example, "Sophie" is typically put first in pairings, so if you make a new pairing page for Sophie, you might put her name first.

If you're not sure, just go alphabetical. Don't sweat it.

Intro Section

Here we go! You're making your page. You're just going to establish the relationship and give a brief background of it here—before you make any "sections." Here's part of the Sophie and Fitz intro:

Sophitz/Fitzphie is the romantic pairing of Sophie Elizabeth Foster and Fitzroy Avery Vacker. They started dating in Flashback, but they broke up in Legacy. They still have very strong feelings for each other, but both decided they weren't ready to be in a romantic relationship yet.

Don't forget the infobox (right side)! It'll give some hard-and-fast facts on the ship for those that are looking for a summary or something specific.

Pairing Names

This section isn't necessary if the ship only has one or two common names. Some ships, though, like Keefe and Sophie, have many. Just put the name and where it comes from, like so:

  • Sokeefe (So/phie and Keefe)
  • Keephie (Kee/fe and Sophie)
  • Team Foster-Keefe (Sophie Foster and Keefe Sencen)

Moments

This is one of the most important parts of the page. This is where you document any interactions between the two characters. Some criteria:

  • A moment should not be one-sided. If it's just a character thinking about another character, it's probably not a moment. If it's one-sided but very important (like a character realizing they love the other character), put it in the intro section.
  • I would estimate that you should have only 30 moments per book, preferably even less than that (unless it's a primary ship like Fitzphie or Sokeefe).
  • You should have at least three solid "moments" for the ship to be considered viable enough to have its own page.
  • A moment can be romantic or friendship-based. It depends on the page focus and the characters' relationships.
  • Here are some examples:
    • Sophie tells Fitz that once she gets her parents back, she'll do the trust exercises with him... and not hold anything back (since she was hiding her crush on him.) Fitz smiles and it makes Sophie's insides flip, and then flip again when Fitz says that it might be better than she thinks.
    • Keefe holds Sophie to his chest and asks if she's okay after she returns from being in Greyfell's mind.
    • Dex writes on a notebook, "I never see you anymore," and Sophie writes back "I miss you too."

Now that we've got through that, here's how to format it:

Book 1: Keeper of the Lost Cities

  1. Moment description (page/chapter number, optional)
  2. Moment description (page/chapter number, optional)

Book 2: Exile

  1. Moment description (page/chapter number, optional)
  2. Moment description (page/chapter number, optional)

Similarities and Differences

Similarities

  • Here you can put anything the two characters have in common—especially something that might contribute to their friendship/romance. It might be "Sophie and Fitz are both Telepaths" or "Sophie and Keefe are both heavily involved in the rebellion."
  • Etc.

Differences

  • Similarly, you can put any major differences between the characters. What might cause a stumbling block in their relationship? How might they compliment each other? It might be "Fitz was raised in the Lost Cities, and Sophie was raised in the Forbidden Cities" or "Keefe is connected by his birth to the Neverseen, and Sophie is connected by her birth to the Black Swan."
  • Etc.

Quotes

  • Is there a quote about them that just melts your heart? Please, share it. For example:
  • "But he was also the boy who'd shown up on her class field trip and shown her where she really belonged. The one who'd let her cry on his shoulder when she had to leave her family, and who'd gone out searching for her in the middle of nowhere, just because he'd heard her voice in his head." -Exile
  • "There was no teasing glint to be found. Just pure determination when he told her, 'Because Team Foster-Keefe is going to win.'" -Nightfall

Trivia

  • Got any fun facts about their relationship? Spill! For example:
  • Keefe considers himself to be the "President of the Foster Fan Club."
  • Fitz's real name (Fitzroy) can be split into two parts, Fitz and Roy. A meaning of Fitz is, "Son of the king" and the meaning of Roy is, "king/seeker of wisdom." Sophie's name means "wisdom," which could mean that Fitz is seeking Sophie.

Footer

There's no need to make a separate section for this. Just, at the bottom of the page, place this template:

Coding Template

As promised, here's the base coding for a pairing page! Just copy and paste this into the "Source Editor," and then fill in the gaps in whichever editor you choose!

 {{Infobox Keepers Pairings}}'''X''' is the pairing of X and X. Insert description here.
