Booking Through Thursday

Monica suggested this one:

Got this idea from Literary Feline during her recent contest:

“Name a favorite literary couple and tell me why they are a favorite. If you cannot choose just one, that is okay too. Name as many as you like–sometimes narrowing down a list can be extremely difficult and painful. Or maybe that’s just me.”

I also have lots of trouble having just one favorite of anything: a movie, a book, a book series, a color, a food… and luckily I don’t have to!

Friendship sort of couples:

Vlad and his familiar Loiosh from Steve Brust’s books. They make quite an formidable pair.
Cutter and his “brother in all but blood” friend Skywise from the Elfquest comic book.
Storm and Kitty Pryde used to be great friends during Claremont’s long run on the X-Men comic.
I’ve also enjoyed the respect and friendship Captain Picard had with his first officer Will Riker. (There has been so many books written about the various Star Trek incarnations that I feel the need to include them here.)
Data and Geordi LaForge have also a great friendship.

Romantic couples:
Miles Vorkosigan and Elli Quinn from the Vorkosigan series.
Cutter and Leetah from the Elfquest comic.
Skot, Krim, and Pike; a three-mating of elves as they are called in Elfquest
Redlance and Nightfall; an Elfquest couple where the woman is the fierce hunter and the man is the gentle nurturer.
Phédre No Delany and Josclin from Jacqueline Carey’s Kushiel series.
