* RobinsonCrusoe and Friday. Crusoe describes the relationship between him and his native servant as akin to that of father and son. Friday is fiercely loyal to his master and even leaves the island with him voluntarily instead of waiting for his real father to return. He accompanies Crusoe on his travels [[spoiler: until he gets killed in the first half of the lesser-known sequel ''The Farther Adventures of Robinson Crusoe'']]. Of course, many modern readers see blazing HoYay.

** Ravenpaw and Barley, although pretty much every ''Warriors'' fan that doesn't hate slash (and even some who do) believes that Ravenpaw and Barley are more than HeterosexualLifePartners. It's also worth noting that [[WordOfGod the author herself said]] that she envisions them "[[HoYay like a married couple]]," and that they are ''perfectly happy with just each other'' and ''don't want any girls to boss them around''. This is made even more blatant in Ravenpaw's manga trilogy.

* Robert and Arvid in "''Literature/TheEmigrants''" novels. They get to know each other when they work as farmhands at the same farm, and even though Robert is much more intelligent than Arvid, they become very close to each other and go to America and search for gold together. [[Spoiler: They both die young though.]]

** Dean Thomas and Seamus Finnigan are rarely seen apart. In Deathly Hallows, it is mentioned that Dean rushed to see "his best friend" in the Room of Requirement.
** According to the Sorting Hat's song in ''The Order of the Phoenix'', Gryffindor and Slytherin, as well as Ravenclaw and Hufflepuff were this before their inevitable split.

* HoratioHornblower, predecessor to both the above and inspiration for ''Literature/HonorHarrington''. Bush starts out as Hornblower's superior officer, but they earn each other's respect and when Hornblower gets promoted past him, he requests Bush as his second, and Bush happily accepts. They're joined at the hip for the next few ''decades'', through Hornblower's two marriages. In ''A Ship of the Line'', Hornblower has a minor HeroicBSOD when [[spoiler: his ship is destroyed...and Bush loses his leg]]. In ''Commodore Hornblower'', Hornblower thinks to himself that having Bush around is ''better than having a wife'' (he's been married twice at this point). Horatio has a much bigger HeroicBSOD in ''Lord Hornblower'', when Bush makes [[spoiler: a HeroicSacrifice]]. In the films, Hornblower's HLP is Archie Kennedy, and it's possible that ExecutiveMeddling [[spoiler: killed Archie off]] in part because he was interfering with the development of the Hornblower-Bush relationship.

* Creator/HPLovecraft did this a few times. In "The Hound", the two main characters retreat from the world to wallow in (chaste) decadence together. Poppy Z. Brite wrote a tribute to this in which the [[{{Expy}} equivalent characters]] ''were'' gay.
* Another Lovecraft example: in ''Herbert West - Reanimator'', West and the narrator live and work together for many years; if memory serves, the narrator even joins the military to stay near West during UsefulNotes/WorldWarI. (And see under Film, above.)
