Gotta love a good cave-in, but it’s late where I am and I’m having trouble coming up with good examples. But anything that puts two (or more) characters in a dire situation and makes them deal with the fact that they might die together — or maybe have feelings for each other — or both — that is my JAM, y’all!

Can’t wait to see what this sparks for your favorite fandoms.
Just a few rules:
No more than five prompts in a row.
No more than three prompts in the same fandom.
Use the character's full names and fandom's full name for ease adding to the Lonely Prompts spreadsheet.
No spoilers in prompts for a month after airing, or use the spoiler cut option found here.
If your fill contains spoilers, warn and leave plenty of space, or use the above mentioned spoiler cut.
Prompts should be formatted as follows: [Use the character's full names and fandom's full name]
Fandom, Character +/ Character, Prompt

+ The West Wing, Josh Lyman/Sam Seaborn,a bomb threat or severe weather or something has them stuck together in a room for an indeterminate amount of time, forcing them to face up the feelings they’ve been trying to squash since the campaign trail…
