Top Ten Tuesday: Dynamic Duos

This week’s Top Ten Tuesday prompt is Dynamic Duos. I love duo team ups, but this was definitely a challenge to narrow down favorites. I didn’t want to use anything from comic books because it’s way too easy to find great pairings, though there are so many I love from comics and movies/TV shows that I could have included.

Ed and Alphonse from Fullmetal Alchemist by Hiromu Arakawa: I know I said no comic books, but I don’t consider manga quite the same so I’m including these two knuckleheads on my list. I adore their brother relationship and how they do everything for each other. Ugh, my heart.

Locke and Jean from The Lies of Locke Lamora by Scott Lynch: If you’ve read the book, you’ll know what I’m talking about but there’s a scene near the end with these two that just blew my freaking mind and basically confirmed how great these two are together.

Percy and Grover from Percy Jackson and the Olympians series by Rick Riordan: I can’t have a dynamic duo list without these two! Even though I think they work even better as a trio with Annabeth, I love their initial friendship and dynamics.

Sean and Puck from The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater: Ugh, my heart. These two working together kills me every time I read this book.

Jackaby and Abigail from Jackaby series by William Ritter: I love a good male-female duo where they don’t fall in love and are more like siblings or father-daughter or whatever. These two make it work!

Ramona and Howie from Ramona books by Beverly Cleary: These two get themselves into all types of trouble, but it’s so fun.

Handa and Naru from Barakamon by Satsuki Yoshino: These two together are ridiculously fun, and I love a good age gap in a friendship as long as it doesn’t come across weird.

Jo and Laurie from Little Women by Louisa May Alcott: I will fight anybody who says these two should have been romantic partners instead because I adore their friendship and that Jo was honest about her feelings and that after it all they could eventually be friends again. I will fight you!

Anne and Diana from Anne of Green Gables by L.M. Montgomery: I can’t forget the best bosom friends ever!

Literally everybody in Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit by J.R.R Tolkien: There are so many great dynamic duos in Tolkien’s work: Sam and Frodo, Merry and Pippin, Gimli and Legolas, Bilbo and Thorin, Kili and Fili, I could go on and on!
