Who's your favourite Friendship in fantasy?
« on: February 23, 2020, 07:23:07 PM »
I think it’s time for a list  :)

The best friends who do anything for each other. Let’s add some  m/f   and f/f friendships too without all the lovey dovey stuff getting in the way.

Fitz & Nighteyes

Sam & Frodo

Tas & Flint

Royce & Hadrian

Locke & Jean

The Vagrant & Goat 🐐

Robert and Eddard's friendship is very compelling.  And Tasselhof and Flint's friendship is worthy of at least an honorable mention imo.  But if I had to pick just one I'd probably go with Drizzt and Belwar.

Fiddler and Hedge

Kallor shrugged. 'I've walked this land when the T'lan Imass were but children. I've commanded armies a hundred thousand strong. I've spread the fire of my wrath across entire continents, and sat alone upon tall thrones. Do you grasp the meaning of this?'

'Yes' said Caladan Brood. 'You never learn'

Locke and Jean are up there, as are Harry Dresden and Karrin Murphy and Peter Grant and Thomas Nightingale. Bronn and Tyrion are also quite fun.

I've always loved loved loved friendship in fantasy. The most recent one I'm reading is probably The Ketty Jay crew, the Gentlemen Bastards, and I put much of duos friendship in my short stories/ novel as well.
