One comment:

  1. Anne Shirley & Diana Barry from the Anne of Green Gables series:
    Like anything from the romanticized, simplified world of Green Gables, this is the friendship I wish I had had as a kid.

    Stannis Baratheon & Ser Davos Seaworth from the Song of Ice & Fire series

    Boris & Theo from “The Goldfinch”

    Sasha & Rob from “A Visit From the Goon Squad”:
    So heartbreaking because as much as she wanted to, she couldn’t be his redemption. But they got the darkness in each other in a way that was so visceral.
