Fictional Friends

There's a quote floating around that about sums up how I feel about friendship, which goes something like this: "A good friend will bail you out of jail, but a true friend will be sitting beside you saying, 'Wow, that was fun.'"

Friends are both rescuers and accomplices, or at least the best ones are. How could Novalee Nation have survived, homeless and with a new baby, without Sister Husband and Lexie Coop in Where the Heart Is? And would Dru have been able to summon the strength to go on after her father's death, without Graves' help in Strange Angels?

Of course, the bonds of friendship often turn to something more, as with Dru and Graves, and Clary and Simon in the Mortal Instruments series. However, I think the most famous example to date of attraction overtaking a friendship would have to be the strangely-fated relationship of Jacob Black and Bella Swan.

And then there are the threesomes, the Musketeers, like Buffy, Willow and Xander from Buffy the Vampire Slayer (yes, I'm aware it's a television show and not a book, but I do occasionally catch glimpses of alternate media). If you know me at all, though, you'll know my favorite triangulated amigos, though; Harry, Ron and Hermione, from the Harry Potter series. Need I say more?

Who are your favorite fictional friends?
