* 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.]]

* ''Literature/TheLineageOfTellus'' has this in spades between Finn and Tristane throughout the first book, where it begins with FoeYay. At least until the end, when [[spoiler:it's established as canon that the two are falling in love with one another, subverting the earlier LoveTriangle trope established with heroine, Ashei.]] Then, in books 4-5, Aedan and Niall are in denial about the nature of their feelings, while Sage and Aedan also have a strong FoeYay relationship [[spoiler:consummated in book 5.]] So you could say the whole thing is filled with Yay of all kinds.

* In the ''Literature/TheLegendOfDrizzt'' spin-off ''Literature/TheSellswords'' Jarlaxle's grooming of his new companion seems rather self serving: When Entreri shows up in a fine new dress shirt in a bar, it thoroughly diverts Jarlaxle's attention from a woman he intends to bed. She notices his staring and is not amused.

* Rose and Lissa in from ''Literature/VampireAcademy'', especially in the final chapter of ''Shadow Kissed'' and a lot of ''Blood Promise''. The part where Rose leaves the academy and heads to Russia is pretty much like a break-up scene, you don't even need to change the dialogue:



** Given that Rose is only going to Russia so she can MercyKill her ex-boyfriend (who has been turned against his will into an evil, soulless vampire) that whole conversation really comes off as Lissa being jealous of how important said boyfriend is to Rose. And then, when Rose ''does'' leave, Lissa falls into this dark, depressed state where she completely changes her personality [[spoiler: (admittedly, most of that was because she was being brainwashed into doing so, but still)]] and starts drinking again, becoming a vapid party girl. It doesn't help that Lissa's own boyfriend tries and fails to bring her out of this state, but when ''Rose'' calls...

** Also, you know the whole 'biting-gives-you-intense-pleasure' thing that most vampire fiction has? Yeah, this series uses it too, although with a fair side of deconstruction. And yes, there are scenes where Lissa bites Rose, and Rose's narration...doesn't really gloss over things like that.
** Interestingly, the bullies at the high school they go to do briefly shout insults about them being 'fags,' but Lissa and Rose just ignore them, and it's treated as a fairly common slur, with not much truth behind it. Later, the bullies switch to spreading more malicious rumors.

that. Hell, their first scene together is Rose, in her underwear having just woken up, inviting Lissa to bite her and then mentally monologuing about how, while she knows Lissa needs the sustenance, she feels a little guilty about it because she likes it so much.

The stigma behind it and Rose's reaction to the rumors is....unsubtle. The film gives us this gem:
