Need my characters to meet somehow...


K, so I have two characters that need to meet. Somewhere. Anywhere. They're both about 15. I thought about having them meet at school, I just don't know /how/ to get them to talk to each other. Any ideas?

Put them in a chemistry, or biology, or some class like them. And make them LAB PARTNERS!

EDIT: Or, (if this applies for you) Have one characters friend try hooking the two of them up. (Either as bf/gf, or just as friends)

They could just randomly bump into each other in the hall...

If you want them to meet at school, you could put their lockers next to each other or have them sitting next to each other for something. Outside of school they could meet at sports, at a store, any other activity they have in common and then realize they go to the same school (if they do go to the same school). To start talking they could either be the only two people of their age in a place, start arguing over something and then start talking, be competing over something and then become friends, or maybe one of them runs into the other one, apologizes, and then they start talking.

With the whole school theme, you could have them have a common friend and meet at lunch. Or one totally bowls over the other in the hall and helps pick up stuff.

Anywhere and everywhere are options!

I met a guy from college while on the train yesterday. We both live quite far away and were studying for the same subject (but from different textbooks) and so I just assumed he went to one closer to home. Didn't realise until I walked into the exam room (where everyone in the first half of the alphabet from the two M.S. classes were) that we went to the same college. From the look on his face I figured he didn't realise either! :P

Those have all been done before (Tina exempt, that's a different scenario).

You could have one be the other's tutor in a class as how they meet. You could also have them completely coincidentally live across the street from each other and never notice until now.

EDIT:
I thought I might add this. My math teacher said when she was first dating the man she's married to now, they completely coincidentally had PO Boxes one above the other. One day a letter was mistakenly put in his mailbox that had her name on it and it got really awkward until they learned what was going on.

Well, one idea would be to stick them together in a project. Have teacher say "I'm picking the partners:" and then the other two.

Outside of school you could do next to anything. Have them meet at a party, maybe.

One of them could be a writer for the yearbook/newspaper, and they write a feature on the other person, so they need to interview them.

Don't go for the overused scenarios, they usually don't have much creativity juice in them. ;) Actually, I liked juliajreams' idea a lot. XD

If they're driving, one of them could hit the other and they have to exchange information.
