* Alya and Nino from ''WesternAnimation/MiraculousLadybug''. They get together relatively quickly, and are not tangled up in the SecretIdentity-induced [[TwoPersonLoveTriangle relationship]] [[LovesMyAlterEgo drama]] that ensnares [[TheHero Marinette]] and [[TheLancer Adrien]].

Added DiffLines:

* The primary romance of ''Literature/TheHeartsWeSold'' is Dee/James. Dee and James love each other dearly, but are held back by various circumstances, mainly Dee being a mess of emotional issues. Gremma and Riley, on the other hand, hook up late in the story, but it's nothing but smooth sailing for them.

* In ''The Sanctuary Telepath'' the POV character, Janine's relationship with James serves as the beta for her brother's tragic love story with Helen. They're not officially together and the nature of the dynamic is somehow a mystery even to them, but despite this (or maybe because of this) they have undoubtedly less problems and are very close. Janine even [[LampshadeHanging lampshades]] this in one of her more GenreSavvy moments.

Added DiffLines:

** Ann and Mark was possibly an attempt at one of these that led to Mark written off. Mark's only notable traits[[note]][[ShipTease Ship Tease]] with Leslie and some womanizing behavior[[/note]] had to be dropped for his character to fit into this trope. He subsequently became too bland for the writers to bother with. Ben and Chris were introduced around the time he was written off.

** Subverted with Ann and Chris, whose relationship is not in focus as much as Leslie and Ben's, but is shown to be far more complicated than Leslie and Ben's healthy relationship.
