fan mix: Get Real (Skins - Mini/Rich)  
Fandom: Skins
Subject: Mini McGuinness/Rich Hardbeck
Title: Get Real
Warnings: None.
Notes: I made this a few months ago, back when I was thinking about the ship a little bit. I want to post it before series 6 comes round and changes everything - the characters, the plots and what we think of them.
This mix and the ship all kind of started in comment threads between me and aragorn:
(#1) youtoxic: Actually, I ship Rich/Mini for the same reason ... (hostility breeds sexual tension, that sort of thing) .... That one scene where she says "fuck off back to Valhalla, weirdo" sold it for me. I think they'd have amazing banter that could lead to something more?
youtoxic: I think of all the guys, he's the one most likely to see through the BS facade she puts up and make her act like a normal human being, which is why even a friendship between them would be interesting.
(#2) iamshunpike: I'd like to see them as the oil-and-water, black coffee-and-cream type of friendship, maybe eventually turning into more than that. ... They're both powerful, both have powerful personalities. There's no dom/sub, princess/hulk game there. They're both stubborn as bulls. I just LIKE it. I feel like it could go from being a power clash to being an on-the-same-side Power Couple.

So that is where this came from. I hope you like it. :B

1. blind pilot — go on, say it ()
If you had said it right, instead of painting words white
How I would keep you (uh-huh, uh-huh) just how I left you
Come on, say it right

2. johnny cash — understand your man ()
I ain't gonna repeat what I said anymore,
While I'm breathing air that ain't been breathed before
I'll be as gone as a wild goose in winter

3. kursed — perfect mean ()
I am the perfect mean, yeah, 'cause you don't ask me in
I am your alcohol, dressed down, at your door

4. lily allen — cheryl tweedy ()
I wish I had one good reason why I should stay
How'd I get myself into this place?
I wish I could fit myself in my pocket and tie myself to a rocket
And send myself to outer space
I wish I had a different face

5. lovegrenade — the struggle of fun against decay ()
We never surrender, we never surrender again
We never had a chance to get even
I never surrender, I never learned to give in
There's still teen anger inside of me
It's the struggle of fun against decay

bahaha. if you insist.

It was actually the two comment threads, but yeah, that is kind of surprising...IDK. I just wouldn't have shipped it (or even thought about what they'd be like together) otherwise. :B

Oh awesome! Thank you! <3

Interesting, I actually shipped Rich/Mini when the character profiles were first released last year.

Omg omg dead at this.It's a secret and I know they're never going to happen but fuck,like the conversation you have reported they surely are both stubborn and bitchy.I'd love to see more of that.

Nice mix :)
I hope we'll have more Mini/Rich bonding in S6. These two need to be friends.
