* ''Spindle's End", the retelling of ''Literature/SleepingBeauty'' by Creator/RobinMcKinley, has its RomanticTwoGirlFriendship between Rosie and Peony. They're described repeatedly with "two halves of one soul" imagery, at one point Rosie outright says "I love you" to Peony, and [[spoiler: it's ultimately Rosie who takes on the role that corresponds to [[Disney/SleepingBeauty Disney's]] Prince Philip, fighting and killing the evil fairy to rescue the sleeping Peony, then waking her with the all-important kiss. On the lips.]] Their romances with their male love interests feel almost like an afterthought by comparison.

* Cindy Pon's ''Serpentine'' duology revolves largely around the friendship of two girls, [[SnakePeople Skybright]] and Zhen Ni, the latter of whom is explicitly a lesbian. While their relationship is mainly [[LikeBrotherAndSister sister-like]] and both have separate love interests, they do a TestKiss early in the first book, and Skybright's hurt, anger and sense of abandonment when she first discovers Zhen Ni's relationship with her female lover Lan (i.e. "Now that she has her, she won't need me as a friend") has a distinct WomanScorned vibe to it.

* ''Literature/Wicked'': In their scene time together, Glinda and Elphaba seem reasonably platonic. Their parting has a rather different tone, and after their parting Glinda looks back on events in a more romantic light.

* Alex Cross and his best friend Sampson in Creator/JamesPatterson[='s=] ''Cross'' novels could be just BFF... if it weren't for the free embracing and kissing the two engage in as a greeting. Sampson is always referring to Cross as "lover" and "dear".

* In ''AnimalFarm'', there are homoerotic vibes from the relationship between Boxer and Benjamin. Ben is described as being "fond" of Boxer, the two live in the same stable, and the only time Ben actually does something is [[spoiler: when Boxer was sent to the slaughterhouse]]. Also, after [[spoiler: Boxer dies]], Ben becomes depressed. Because YOU wouldn't if your best friend [[spoiler: was shipped off to be turned into glue by a totalitarian regime?]]
