This article or section needs expansion.

In fandom, Mick/Leonard is a popular pairing. As of October 2017, Mick Rory/Leonard Snart is the second most popular ship tag in Legends of Tomorrow works on Ao3 and the fourth most popular ship tag in The Flash works.

Many fic writers believe these two have an established relationship and there are many fics looking at the pre-canon evolution of their relationship, as well as domestic fics, and fics where the other Legends discover their relationship.

Threesome pairings are common. They are most commonly paired with Barry Allen, (Coldflashwave). Other pairings include Ray Palmer/Mick Rory/Leonard Snart and Sara Lance/Mick Rory/Leonard Snart.

In canon, these two characters often give others disparaging nicknames and that trait also appears in fanworks. In threesome pairings, nicknames are often portrayed as terms of endearment.
