Any two guys (or, sometimes, any two girls) usually abbreviated as ATG, is a pejorative term used to refer to a slash story where the characterization is so weak that any character names could be swapped in without affecting the story in any way.

The Fanfiction Glossary defined it as "A poorly-written slash story which is so generic that if you changed the names and a few minor details, the main characters could be mistaken for any two men pulled off the street. Usually abbreviated to ATG ."[1]
