First Meeting fics involve characters meeting for the first time. This is a popular trope for characters who have yet to meet in their canon universe.
An AU variation on this trope is the Alternate First Meeting. This is a fanfic trope where two characters meet under different circumstances than their first canon meeting. Very often alternate first meetings are fics set in the canon universe of the source material and can be considered a sub-genre of canon-divergent works.
