My Top Seven Favorite Fictional Friendships

A month or so ago, Jane did a post like this, and I have borrowed it. 🙂 Thanks, Jane! (Check out her blog – it’s great!)

We all have fictional characters we love even months or years after reading their story, and these are seven of them. Friendships in fiction are fun to write, but probably even more fun to read. Does anyone agree?

(1) Kyrin and Kaden in Ilyon Chronicles

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000040_00020]

Kyrin and Kaden are twins, and their relationship is so heartwarming, especially in the first book (that’s book two up there). The series wouldn’t have been the same without them.

(2) Parvin and Willow in the Out of Time Series


Parvin and Willow’s friendship was so sweet. And then their character development (*cringes over book three*) deepened their friendship. Seriously, people, if you haven’t read these books, read them. That’s an order. 😉

(3) Thomas and Emma in Fawkes


Did you seriously think you’d get through this list without seeing the masterpiece that is Fawkes? Anyway, Emma and Thomas were awesome, and there were so many dimensions to Emma’s character that came out along the way. They were perfect for each other. 🙂

(4) Merry and Pippin in Lord of the Rings



Merry and Pippin had such a critical role in Lord of the Rings, and they might as well have been brothers.

(5) Sam and Frodo in Lord of the Rings

Need I say more? Frodo never would have succeeded without Sam, so . . .

(6) Michael and Ostin in the Michael Vey Series


In the beginning of the first book, Ostin was Michael’s only friend. And from brink of death to brink of death, Ostin never abandoned him. Awesome.

(7) Leith and Renna in the Blades of Acktar


Let’s face it, Leith and Renna were perfect for each other. And if you have no idea what I’m talking about because you haven’t read the series, read it. 🙂 Anyway, their relationship developed gradually, and I’m really glad it did. It made the whole series even more enjoyable.

So, what are your favorite fictional friendships? Can you attest to any of these? Let’s chat in the comments!



Hannah Gaudette is a home-school teen living in the hills of New England. When she’s not writing stories or training dogs, it’s a safe bet you can find her with some other animal, like cats. She’s a life-enthusiast who loves the ocean and The Piano Guys. Enough said.

  1. Frodo and Sam’s relationship is SO great(at least in the movie)!
    My favorite fictional friendship is probably Alcatraz and Bastille from Alcatraz vs the Evil Librarians by Brandon Sanderson. Look, don’t let the title keep you away! (I was unsure when I first heard the title too, but I tell you THIS BOOK is awesome! So much humor and sarcasm, so much good story, seriously check it out!)
