Tell us your favorite relationships that don’t involve the protagonist!
We’ll start with the obvious and the one that is probably about to be on everyone’s list.
Ron and Hermione
For the record, I’m so glad J.K. Rowling didn’t have Hermione end up with Harry. Hermione and Ron compliment each other so well, his sense of humor to her practicality, her brains to his… well. We can’t all be geniuses, can we Ronald?
Prim and Buttercup
Prim and her cat had a better love story than Katniss and Peeta. Buttercup is a mangy, old thing, with distrust of everyone around him except for Prim. When Prim dies, he even goes looking for her. My dog probably wouldn’t have even noticed that I had left.
Will Herondale and Jem Carstairs
The ultimate bromance, or… you know… parabatai pairing. Will and Jem are the perfect duo, fighting demons, cracking jokes, and having each other’s back. Jem is the voice of reason to Will’s destructive nature, holding him back from the edge every single time.
Jamie Fraser and Murtagh
I couldn’t decide if this relationship was more of a bromance or a father-son like relationship, but I definitely like their dynamic. I think they compliment each other well, more or less like Will and Jem, balancing each other out and adding strength to the other’s flaws.
Jon Snow and Ygritte
I know Jon’s one of the main character’s on Game of Thrones, but we have so many POV characters that it’s hard to tell who’s a main character and who is not. I really liked Jon Snow and Ygritte together. Again, she balanced Jon’s cautious and practical nature out with her fiery and bold personality. Even though it took Jon a while to warm up to her, I think she was good for him and taught him a lot while they were together.
