When did name smooshing pairing names start? I read somewhere that it started in Buffy fandom with Xanya, but the different fandoms listed on this page suggest that it started independently in multiple fannish spaces.--æþel (talk) 02:08, 31 July 2013 (UTC) FYI, twitter discussion.--æþel (talk) 04:13, 31 July 2013 (UTC)

Well, FK fandom created the Nanettes sometime probably in late 1995, if that helps. I don't know if that's the first; but "smooshing" is certainly pre-Buffy. --Greer Watson (talk) 07:11, 28 May 2015 (UTC)
