** The Austrian production of ''Theatre/RomeoEtJulietteDeLaHaineALamour'' ran with Shakespeare's FoeYay and has Tybalt straddling, kissing, then killing Mercutio. [[note]]While Mercutio is technically the Prince's kinsman, who is Switzerland in the feud, he is allied with the Montagues via his close friendship with Romeo and Benvolio.[[/note]]

* ''Literature/ShardsOfHonor'' starts out with the Betans and the Barrayarans on opposing sides of a conflict (technically, it's Barrayar vs. Escobar, with the Betans supporting Escobar), and Betan Expeditionary Captain [[WarriorTherapist Cordelia Naismith]] being taken prisoner by Barrayaran Captain Lord [[AnOfficerAndAGentleman Aral]] [[CombatPragmatist Vorkosigan]]. Four days, a lot of terrain, and some heart-to-hearts later, they're engaged. And as subsequent books tell us, they end up a pair of HappilyMarried [[RetiredBadass Retired Badasses]].

* In ''[[Literature/SixteenThirtyTwo 1634: The Baltic War]]'', 20-year old Eddie (from the US, year 2000, now in the USE in 1633) is captured during a conflict with Denmark in 1633. He falls in love with 15 year old Anne Cathrine (a Denmark princess -- [[InsistentTerminology fine]], ''"King's Daughter"'') while in captivity. Despite her genuine fondness for him, he believes it is hopeless since Denmark and the USE are enemies. Eventually, [[spoiler:Denmark officially joins the USE, and he proposes marriage to Anna - a development desired by the King of Denmark, his sons and Anna herself.]]
* In ''Literature/FirebirdTrilogy'', the titular Firebird Angelo, SpareToTheThrone of Netia, is captured by Federate Brennen Caldwell. Brennen's PsychicPowers mean that he instantly knows Firebird is his SoulMate, and he spends most of the rest of the first book carefully romancing her. She ends up falling for him in return.
* In the eleventh ''Literature/TheWheelOfTime'' book, Berelain and Galad fall in LoveAtFirstSight, even though he's trying to execute one of Berelain's allies. It doesn't stop either from carrying out their separate agendas, but once the above snag is resolved they get married...[[InsistentTerminology for purely political reasons]], of course. It helps that Berelain is a fervent believer in realpolitik.

two people on opposing sides pursue a relationship. If the conflict gets in the way of the shipping, it can lead to StarCrossedLovers.



* In ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'' fandom, a number of shippers support a pairing between enemies Ned Stark and Cersei Lannister. Note that while Ned is a dedicated family man, Cersei herself proposed an affair between them as a way of settling their political differences, although it's doubtful whether she was actually at all attracted to him, as opposed to just wanting to seduce him for purely instrumental reasons.

The nations of Alicetonia and Boblivia have been at war for many years now. Our Invisible Protagonist watches as Boblivia's forces are pushed back by Alicetonia's [[LadyOfWar Ladies Of War]], trying to figure out how to [[TakeAThirdOption save them both.]]

People like romance. People like conflict. So naturally, [[BreadEggsBreadedEggs people like romance in the middle of a conflict]]. This is what happens when that comes to the front. It doesn't have to be a war, but basically any sort of conflict between two (or more) groups. It is guaranteed that the shippers will begin favoring a pairing of two characters on opposite sides... [[ShipsThatPassInTheNight even if those specific characters don't even say two words to each other.]]

* This serves as a bit of a plot point in the WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender fic, ''Fanfic/HowIBecameYours''. Katara ends up with Zuko, while Sokka ends up with ''Azula of all people''. This is quite possibly deconstructed early on, when Mai intercepts Zuko's mail to prevent him from learning of his love child with Katara, and also poisons Katara, causing her to miscarry, believing that the Fire Nation Senate will not allow the union ([[StrawmanHasAPoint But Mai, despite however reasonable she might come off as, is not meant to be believed]]).
