On Valentine’s Day, everyone has romance on the brain. But for those of us who aren’t in a relationship/don’t really want to, I decided to list eight notable friendships, with two from each of these forms of fiction: books, TV, movies, and Webtoons.
Harry Potter, Ron Weasley, and Hermione Granger, The Harry Potter series
I can’t talk about friendships without the golden trio! Harry, Ron and Hermione have their differences and arguments, but they are completley loyal to each other, and are willing to undergo many things for each other, including risking their lives time and time again.
Will Herondale and Jem Carstairs, The Infernal Devices series
These two have a Parabatai bond, and may be my favorite relationship within TID. Will is rude and foul to everyone but Jem, who is one of the few people he can truly be himself with. And Jem is patient and honest, and Will is one of the few people who truly helps him with his illness.
Sherlock Holmes and John Watson, Sherlock:
Do I need to explain this one? Sherlock starts off as a cold hearted genius with very little understanding of human nature. And John is a bit of an adrenaline addict, but is also kinder and understands people. They help each other; Sherlock begins to become more human, and John finds a true best friend.
The Tenth Doctor and Donna Noble, Doctor Who:
Dear goodness, I think they had the best Doctor and companion chemistry! They clearly cared for each other underneath all their bickering, and I’m still not quite over Journey’s End…😢
Newt Scamander and Jacon Kowalski, Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them
Hehe. These two were fun. I like how they reacted to the others’ situations, and how Jacob loved Newt’s creatures a lot, despite a few of them being loose in New York.
Hiccup and Toothless, How to Train Your Dragon
They have an ideal and adorable owner and pet relationship. And I like that their disabilities mirror each other; it strengthens their bond.
