* In Charles King's ''A Daughter of the Sioux'', a soldier considers his superior thus:
-->But, only mistily now, he saw bending over him the keen, soldierly features- the kind, winsome gray eyes, filled with such a world of concern and sympathy- and heard the deep, earnest tones of the voice he knew so well, calling again his name and mingling cordial praise and anxious inquiry, and all the rancor seemed to float away with the smoke of the last carbine shots. He could only faintly return the pressure of that firm, muscular hand, only feebly smile his thanks and reassurance, and then he, too, seemed floating away somewhere into space, and he could not manage to connect what Webb had been saying with the next words that fastened on his truant senses.



* Rather obscure, but the narrator Emil Sinclair in Herman Hesse's ''Demian'' waxes poetic about the title character. Became pretty bizarre, though, when Sinclair ended up falling for Demian's mother (who's said to look a lot like her son).

* ''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.

* From ''Literature/{{Wonderstruck}}''; the main characters are eleven-year-old boys and are just supposed to be friends, but it's not hard to read them as kids with a bit of a crush on each other.



* Tom and Carl from Literature/YoungWizards. They're two rather successful, thirty-something men who have lived together for years. Nothing has ever been mentioned about them going on dates or having love interests (and they probably never will, since they're not the main characters). Not to mention they're Wizarding partners, and the pattern in the books points to partners either being family or couples.
*** WordOfGod has [[WordOfGay confirmed this]].

* OlderThanDirt, and proof that some things never change: In ''Literature/TheEpicOfGilgamesh'', literally the Oldest One in the Book, there is considerable sexual tension between Gilgamesh and his [[WorthyOpponent best]] "[[DefeatMeansFriendship buddy]]" [[FoeYay Enkidu]] -- something which is clearly acknowledged by the scribe who wrote of the story, with clever word plays hinting at Enkidu's homoerotic charm. In a slightly less subtle moment, Gilgamesh dreams about having sex with Enkidu as an axe, which he "loves like a woman". Notably, both characters have a previously established heterosexual identity.

* Though it involves younger characters, William Golding's ''Literature/LordOfTheFlies'' centers in large part around the close, pseudo-jealous and possessive FoeYay relationship between Ralph and Jack. Evil Jack just loves his [[FreudWasRight hunting spears]].

* E.M. Forster. Being a real life StraightGay, his novels were full of homoerotic subtext: ''A Passage to India'' is certainly on a level with ''BridesheadRevisited''. And as for ''Literature/{{Maurice}}''...''Maurice'' is about the eponymous character's search for Mr. Right! Pretty damn groundbreaking, seeing as it was written maybe a decade or two after the turn of the century... or it would have been, if publication hadn't been postponed until after his death in the '70s. Forster was all about needling the stuffy types, but he wasn't ''suicidal''. Especially depressing because the overt gay content wasn't what made the book unpublishable, it was [[spoiler:the fact that the book has a happy ending, thus making it "incitement to crime" at the time. If Maurice had hung himself it might have been okay.]]
