* The ''Film/StarTrek'' fic ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/9795158/1/Written-in-the-Stars Written in the Stars]]'' [[LoveTranscendsSpaceTime mostly averts this]], but the Spock and Fem!Kirk in [[ItMakesSenseInContext the alternate reality of the mirror universe]] play this straight in that unions between Vulcans and Humans were forbidden after the Romulan attack on the ''Kelvin''. The pair still fall in love and attempt to bring down the Terran Empire in order to be together.

* A more tragic recent example is the story of [[http://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-37987826 Katya Vlasova and Denis Muravyov]], two 15 year old teenage lovers in Russia that wanted to be a couple, but were blocked by their parents from getting back together. After running away from their parents and holing up inside an relative's abandonded house, they were surrounded by police and sporadic gunfire ensued for 3 days before police finally discovered their bodies after committing suicide.

* In the manhwa ''Manhwa/TheBrideOfTheWaterGod'', the couple Habaek and Nakbin who, according to Su Wang Mo were destined only as passing friends fell deeply in love with each other amidts the deceit and controversy which resulted to Nakbin's death just to protect Habaek. That after her death, both made drastic decisions in order to meet again. With Habaek requiring human girls as sacrifice, and Nakbin escaping the world of the dead by deceiving the god governing it. In the end, their efforts are futile as circumstances always lead to Nakbin choosing death instead of forsaking Habaek along with the fact that he is already connected by the red string to Soah. And even though Habaek admitted that he can never let go of his longing for his first bride, just like the leaves and the flowers of the Spider Lily, the two of them can only long for each other but will never be reunited. Though currently, Nakbin is reincarnated as a human without a memory as conditioned by Hoo-ye to Su Wang Mo.

* ''Anime/CodeGeass'' has two couples like this: Ougi and Viletta, then Lelouch and Shirley (at least in Shirley's mind). [[spoiler: The first ones subvert the trope and get their happy ending, even if YMMV on that.... the second couple plays it straight.]]

*** The Male Avatar can have this with [[spoiler: Scarlet]] in ''Revelation'', since [[spoiler: she only stays around for few chapters before being murdered. In such a reduced time span the player ''can'' have their Male Avatar romance her... only for her to be killed in an HeroicSacrifice and then forcibly revived, forcing the group to kill her again.]] In the ''Birthright'' path, however, she can marry the Male Avatar ''and'' live to the very end, averting the trope.

** And then there's also [[HoYay Prussia/Austria]] fanfics set during the Cold War where Prussia (now East Germany) is kept behind the Berlin Wall and Austria, who is not governed by the Soviet reach of Communism, is separated from him for years. There is also the interpretation that Prussia "dies" after his country is dissolved after WW2 and Austria is again separated from him in "death". Grouped with the aforementioned are[[YourCheatingHeart fics]] where Austria is married to Hungary (either in canon or AU) and carries on a heated affair/romance with [[DracoInLeatherPants Prussia]] - poor Hungary is often subject to RonTheDeathEater treatment in these. [[UpToEleven And finally,]] there are those fanfictions set during the second world war where Austria (Roderich) is Jewish and Prussia (Gilbert) is either a civilian or a Nazi who is [[BastardBoyfriend obsessed with him]]. Needless to say, [[FromBadToWorse things often don't end too well.]]
