Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish and is now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. Today, the topic is Top Ten Dynamic Duos.

I chose to list two persons who work very well together. A few are lovers, most are best friends.

1, Batman and Robin

The obvious one, of course. 🙂

2, Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson

One of the most iconic crimefighters in literature.

3, Robin Hood and Little John

Another famous duo who works very well together.

4, Cordelia and Aral Vorkosigan by Lois McMaster Bujold

Both Aral and Cordelia are some of my favorite characters ever.

5, Irene Winters and Kai by Genevive Cogman

Our intrepid Librarian/spy and her apprentice aren’t on the best of terms in the first book, but grow to a very effective team during the series.

6, Vlad Taltos and Loiosh

Vlad is a witch, an assassin, and a thief. Loiosh is his familiar. They get out of many scrapes together and I love their sarcastic banter.

7, Temeraire and captain William Laurence

Temeraire is an exceptional dragon and is best friends with his captain Laurence. Of course, if a dragon can’t trust his or her captain, it’s very hard to work as a team.

8, Amelia Peabody-Emerson and Radcliff Emerson

The best archeologists and amateur detectives in the literary world.

9, Modesty Blaise and Willie Garvin by Peter O’Donnell

The iconic best friends from the Modesty Blaise comics and books.

10, Granny Weatherwax and Nanny Ogg by Terry Pratchett

Pratchett wrote such wonderful characters that it’s hard to choose just two. But I adore the witches. Granny and Nanny are old witches who are very set in their ways and opinions. They’re best friends who bicker quite a lot.
