I think [livejournal.com profile] zeplum was the originator of Lorne/Novak; she's certainly written a lot of delightful stories featuring the pairing.

I'm never bothered when people decide to pair up secondary characters who haven't met on screen. I admit that Lorne/Parrish baffles me, mainly because there's *nothing* known about Parrish beyond the opening scene of Runner, and that doesn't give us much information about the man. By contrast, Novak appeared in at least one SG-1 episode and had a fairly prominant role. I could see extrapolating from what was known about her fairly easily, while Parrish is a complete blank slate.

So long as something is known about the minor characters in question, I don't think it's impossible to write a compelling story pairing them up. Even with major characters, it can be done - there are several great stories pairing up John Sheppard with Cameron Mitchell from SG-1. They've never met on screen (so far) but the stories worked for me.
