* Played with in ''Literature/TheDresdenFiles'' ic ''[[http://archiveofourown.org/works/5843668 Shifting Desires]]''. When Andi claims that Harry and Molly are "a thing", on the basis that she saw them snuggling together, Georgia is skeptical- not because she thinks the idea is ''unlikely'', but because they've always shared that level of physical intimacy.

* Developed throughout ''VideoGame/LegendOfHeroesTrailsInTheSky''. [[spoiler: Estelle at first regards Joshua as [[LikeBrotherAndSister nothing more than an (adopted) brother-figure,]] denying any romantic connection to the (numerous) [=NPCs=] who ask. However, as the game proceeds, her feelings start to evolve and she begins to realise that she loves him in a much more romantic sense than she had first realised (with copious amounts of CrushBlush applied whenever the subject comes up). By the end of the game, her feelings are pretty evident to everyone, with Anelace commenting that they make a cute couple and Scherazard offering to educate Estelle in matters of the heart.]]

* A unique version on ''Series/Galavant'' as Galavant and Richard are both madly in love with Madalena who was with Galavant but married Richard. However, everyone ''but'' the two of them realizes Madalena is a selfish sociopath who used both of them to become Queen, carries on affairs with others and plays the two off each other in order to gain more power for herself. By the end of the first season, both men seem to finally recognize it and end up joining together.

* Danny and Sam on ''WesternAnimation/DannyPhantom'', to the point where their best friend, nameless classmates, Danny's usually-thick-headed dad, and villains who are usually ''in another dimension'' and wouldn't see anything all pointed it out. A RunningGag line, repeated by several characters throughout the series during moments when it appears as if Danny and Sam are doing something intimate, is "I always knew you two losers would wind up together". Which immediately gets coupled with Danny ''and'' Sam retorting "[[SheIsNotMyGirlfriend S/He is not my girlfriend/boyfriend]]!"

* ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague Unlimited'': Between Batman and Wonder Woman.

correcting bad grammar.
One of the popular ways to do this is to bring in the RomanticFalseLead for an episode or a few, expressly in order to contrast this short-arc relationship with the long-arc relationship that's been developing. The RomanticFalseLead will be the character to comment on how perfect they are for each other. Will likely require SelectiveObliviousness on both parts. Sometimes one or both of the prospective couple can see it, but nothing ever happens because they CannotSpitItOut (to the great annoyance of all observers).

* In ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'', Alphonse Elric gets some mileage out of teasing Ed and Winry about their ''obvious'' feelings for each other. Riza also makes Ed have a rather spectacular SpitTake on poor Black Hayate (resulting in a CrowningMomentOfFunny) when she addresses his love for Winry. As a note to just ''how'' obvious Ed and Winry are, not only can Al and Riza see it, but [[PluckyComicRelief Hughes]] assumes they are in a relationship already. Heck, [[PresidentEvil Bradley]] and ''[[SociopathicSoldier Kimblee]]'' seem to have figured it out, which should tell you pretty much everything you need to know about these two. When [[spoiler:the literal personification of Wrath]] and the genocidal MadBomber have picked up on it, it's pretty obvious that yes, ''everyone'' can see it.
