At the beginning of adolescence, there is a time when friendship is emphasized, usually junior high/middle school. These friendships can have very strong emotional bonds, and when two girls develop a close bond it will almost appear to be a romance. They [[HoldingHands hold hands]]. Getting together to do something is a "date." Fights are treated as a "break-up." They may not 'actually' be in a romantic relationship, but it is emphasized in such a way that if they were, you'd assume it'd look this way. They're also [[FinishingEachOthersSentences sometimes capable of]] [[SpeakInUnison speaking]] [[HiveMind and moving in]] [[MindlinkMates perfect]] {{Synchronization}}.

If the romance starts to become 'too' passionate, parents may try to intervene to separate the girls. This should never become physical ''that way''; it would 'corrupt' the IncorruptiblePurePureness. [[GrowingUpSucks Which is then traded in for marriage.]] If the girls do cross the line into sex (or even passionate kissing), they are no longer this trope, instead becoming SchoolgirlLesbians, and are treated differently.

* Also: ''Anime/SailorMoon''. Usagi and Rei show a somewhat low key version of this in those quiet, sweet moments they're not acting like VitriolicBestBuds, particularly the original and R seasons. True to cultural expectations, these moments are less common (but not ''completely'' inexistent) as Usagi's relationship with her boyfriend Mamoru matures... and they reappear [[spoiler: when Mamoru falls victim to BusCrash (unbeknownst to them)]].

* Kaorin and Chihiro in ''Manga/AzumangaDaioh'', though it's obvious that Kaorin's growing out of it... into a genuine [[SchoolgirlLesbians Schoolgirl Lesbian]] with a crush on Sakaki.
** It seems likely from various hints that Yukari and Nyamo were probably like this when they were young. It could easily explain some of the couple-ish mannerisms they still exhibit, and Yukari's taunting of Nyamo over an [[NoodleIncident unexplained love letter]] (implying that Nyamo may have gotten a bit too caught up in it, leading to the teasing).
*** Then again, writing each other love letters is not out of the ordinary for girls in a Romantic Two-Girl Friendship. It will likely forever be a mystery what happened and why those two are still friends. It may just be straight and simple LesYay, really. Not that the gender of the other side of the love letter is ever specified.
*** In one manga strip that didn't make it into the anime, the two teachers are wearing their old uniforms [for a costume race] 'from when this was an all-girls school'. How this affects things beyond giving a fanfic setting is up for debate.
*** If you were Nyamo would ''you'' want to admit that you [[NoAccountingForTaste fell in love with]] [[ManChild Yukari]]?
*** Yukari and Nyamo's relationship is heavily implied to be similar to that of Tomo and Yomi. They seem to repel each other in every way and one seems appalled by the other but, for some reason, they still manage to remain the best of friends.

* Kumiko and Reina from ''Literature/SoundEuphonium'' develop one over the course of the anime. They often spend time together, two scenes involve Reina intimately touching Kumiko's face, and they both make "love confessions" however, in the manga at least, nothing romantic comes of it.

* Ozma and Dorothy have this in Creator/LFrankBaum's [[Literature/LandOfOz Oz books]]. Completely innocent, it included good morning kisses. Betsy later gets included. Baum implied this relationship would last indefinitely because nobody in Oz ages if they don't want to. This is especially amusing when you realize that Ozma [[GenderBender spent the first 10 years of her life as a boy]].
** This passage from ''Tik-Tok of Oz,'' Betsy's introductory adventure, says it all. Context is the discussion of whether or not the orphaned Betsy should be invited to live in Oz. Dorothy's opinion was very positive.

** Also, Merlin himself, with Arthur.
* Serena and Blair on ''Series/GossipGirl'' are ''really'' close and oftentimes put each other above their respective male love interests in importance without a second thought. They call each other "sisters", but the vaguely [[LesYay lesbian]] nature of their relationship is even [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] in the series by Chuck. Of course, [[HoYay he's one to talk...]]
** It's also acknowledged by the actresses, who in the Season 3 gag reel jokingly pretend to make out in their [[LockedInARoom Trapped In An Elevator]] scene - which actually fits the tone of the episode quite well.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'', Daenerys and her handmaids, particularly Irri and Missandei. Missandei spends a lot of time with Dany, attends her baths, and sleeps in her bed, but there's no actual romantic implications between them since Missandei is 10-11 when Dany is 15-16. Irri, on the other hand, used to sleep in Dany's bed & attend her baths and still helps her get dressed in the mornings, and at one point actually pleased Dany sexually (although Dany was just lonely without Drogo and most likely didn't feel desire for Irri herself, it's possible that Irri had some feelings for Dany).
** There's also Cersei and Taena Merryweather. They were very close friends, and at some point began a sexual relationship with each other. While Lady Merryweather is implied to be genuinely attracted to Cersei, Cersei loves her more like a sister and just rolls with the sexual aspect of their relationship as a means of having more emotional control over Lady Merryweather.

Added DiffLines:

* [[GenkiGirl Clover]]] and [[ShrinkingViolet Mallow]] the main bunny characters from Manga/HappyHappyClover start developing a close bond with each other after they became friends in the first story. As the manga progresses, there are times where Clover thinks Mallow is no longer her friend when a female visitors is at her home when sick and runs away crying and both care constantly seen holding hands. One story even had Mallow defending Clover's mother and her teacher that it was her fault that she injured her foot since the adults scolded Clover for disobeying about climbing down a dangerous hill and riding down on a leaf. Mallow starts defending Clover when she see's her starting to cry of shame and says the whole situations was her fault and starts crying into her mother's chest in sorrow and is later seen crying quietly in her bed. Moments later, Clover visits her room and learns that Twirl just gave her a genuine present which Clover believes is a trick until she see's the real gift. The scene then shows an extreme close up on Clover telling Mallow that Twirl actually has a good heart despite being naughty and causing trouble around the two. In the anime adaptation of that story, it looks like they are falling in love.
