Prior to the release of the pilot and after the release of the The Flash's trailer, the fanon pairing of Caitlin/Barry took off in a big way. After the release of the pilot, the pairing is still quite popular although there are few fans that are interested in seeing Caitlin/Cisco and Caitlin/Harrison. The canon pairing Caitlin/Ronnie took off after the release of photos of Caitlin and Ronnie together for episode 3. Since Felicity Smoak appeared on Flash and her scenes with Caitlin, the gen pairing of Caitlin & Felicity started appearing mainly appearing on Tumblr in forms of gifs and picspams but also some fanfiction.

Season 2 introduced the pairing Caitlin/Jay Garrick. Much to the excitement of MANY fans, Season 2 also introduced Killer Frost (well, Earth-2 version). Season 3 officially introduced Earth-1's version of Killer Frost and introduced the pairing of Caitlin/Julian.

As of 2018, Caitlin/Barry and Caitlin/Cisco remain popular. There are also many works pairing Caitlin/Joe, but the popularity of that ship has waned as the series has progressed. Caitlin/Ronnie and Caitlin/Mick are still been written and remain popular pairings for her character.

Other rarepairs include: Caitlin/Iris, Caitlin/Harry, Caitlin/Lisa, Caitlin/Leonard,
