->'''Osaka:''' Kaorin, are you gay?\\
'''Kaorin:''' The correct term is LESBIAN! Uh, not that I'm a lesbian! It's just, you know, a teenage thing. That's all. (…) Just to prove it, I wouldn't mind if she was a guy!\\
'''Osaka:''' …Huh?
-->-- ''Manga/AzumangaDaioh''

What is it about those schoolgirls? They have such a strong emotional bond with each other that you'd almost think they're dating. Oh… they are?

Perhaps it's driven by WishFulfillment since GirlOnGirlIsHot, but there are a lot of stories about schoolgirls developing romantic feelings for each other. The fact that girls also often form [[RomanticTwoGirlFriendship intimate friendships]] certainly helps fuel the trope. In any case, there are a lot of lesbian schoolgirls running around in fiction land. If an AllGirlSchool setting is involved, the girls in the story may actually identify as straight, as many girls at old-fashioned [[CatholicSchoolGirlsRule all-girls']] schools would enter adolescence [[SituationalSexuality without any male outlets]] [[SuddenlySexuality for their budding sexuality]].

Stories with this trope can focus on romance, the exploration of sexuality and how hot it is that these two young girls are into each other. Society's reactions are also explored, as are parental and societal disapproval. If the writers think that these relationships are improper, expect a PsychoLesbian to appear.

In Japan, this trope is a bit more complicated because [[RomanticTwoGirlFriendship girls having crushes on other girls]] is nothing that raises eyebrows in the Japanese school system. The Japanese refer to this as a Class S Relationship, which supposedly teaches the young ladies about "real" relationships. Class S is not supposed to become physical, and is meant to be outgrown eventually. Retaining a Class S Relationship as one grows older is, according to some Japanese people, a sign of immaturity (e.g. immature {{Clingy Jealous Girl}}s whose "lesbian" crush has suddenly noticed boys). Thus, it is not uncommon to find teenage girl-girl relationships in Japanese media--unless they explicitly describe themselves as lesbians, or engage in physical intimacy (at least kissing), it's not this trope but a RomanticTwoGirlFriendship instead.

Some works just [[BaitAndSwitchLesbians pretend the girls are together]] and get out of it later by [[{{Jossed}} revealing they're not]]. Other times writers like to [[HideYourLesbians hide behind subtext]] in a form of GettingCrapPastTheRadar.

Also see YuriGenre, for Japanese works that focus on female-female romances, whether schoolgirls or not. See also ExperimentedInCollege. If you're looking for Schoolgirl ''Thespians'', you'll find them over in DramaClub.



[[folder:Anime & Manga]]
* Kirika and Mireille from ''Anime/{{Noir}}'' are not shown being physically intimate, but they share a bed and by the end of the series are emotionally dependent on each other. Also, Chloe exhibits a rather warped (and mostly frustrated) desire for Kirika.
* ''Anime/SteelAngelKurumi'' features Saki, a female android who because of the circumstances of her activation has a romantic fixation on the title character, another female android. The sequel series ''Anime/SteelAngelKurumi2'', tops that with what is either an oversized LoveTriangle or a small LoveDodecahedron: Kurumi Mk. II is fixated upon young cellist Nako, who activated her. Nako's friend Uruka also has a crush on her, and out of jealousy activates Saki Mk. II in order to battle Kurumi; Saki, however, ends up pining for both Kurumi and Uruka. Eventually, Nako comes to return Kurumi's feelings.
* Chanohata Tamami in ''Manga/{{Mahoraba}}'' admits to Shiratori Ryuushi that she is in love with Aoba Kozue (who is completely oblivious), explaining her mean-spirited attitude.
* ''Anime/{{Simoun}}'' [[SitchSexuality cheats]] [[DiscountLesbians a little]] by setting the story on a world where everyone under 17 is female, making all of the main characters Schoolgirl Lesbians by default. And they use the power of GirlsLove to make their fighter planes fly.
* In ''Manga/AzumangaDaioh'', Kaorin has an immediately obvious crush on Sakaki that seems one-sided; however, considering Sakaki's addiction to cute things, it's possible that it would be reciprocated (or at least not minded) if she wasn't entirely oblivious. According to the newest manga, Kaorin is either in denial or in denial and in the [[TransparentCloset closet]]. As if we didn't get [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YV1zPWQaHYQ&feature=related#t=0m26s the hints]].
* ''Anime/MaiHime'' features Shizuru and her obsessive love for one of the main characters, Natsuki. Fandom has rewarded this with a series of doujinshi, the tamest of which explore Shizuru's more publishable fantasies. The more extreme, well... let's just say that Shizuru is a very ''imaginative'' individual. One of the [[AllThereInTheManual artbooks]] states that they "find happiness" at Natsuki's graduation. Shizuru's popularity in this series [[AscendedFanon likely led to]] her ''Anime/MaiOtome'' incarnation [[OfficialCouple actually hooking up]] with that universe's Natsuki.
* Speaking of ''Anime/MaiOtome'', there appear to be quite a few of them there, too, since most of the story takes place in the all-girls' Garderobe Academy. Chie, in particular, appears to have out-Chizuru'd ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'''s Chizuru in the "openly flirty" department. Worst than that: the SchizoTech that gives the girls their super powers is destroyed by sperm, and neither condoms nor vasectomies exist.
* ''Anime/RevolutionaryGirlUtena'': Juri's secret obsession with Shiori consumes her entire life. Possibly Anthy and Utena in the series, though it's canon in the movie. Tons of girls also fawn over Utena and in one episode (and only one episode), Anthy.
* ''LightNovel/MariaSamaGaMiteru'' has only one explicit case of a lesbian love affair. The rest of the relationships often ''seem'' to go in that direction, but generally stop at the RomanticTwoGirlFriendship level, which raises suspicions of BaitAndSwitchLesbians among part of the fandom.
* ''Manga/BlueDrop'' contains older lesbians as well. Most of the plot of the anime revolves around the relationship between Mari and Hagino, the latter being the female commander of an alien battleship who hides at Mari's all-girl high-school.
** Played for ''horror'' in the ''Tenshi no Bokura'' manga, part of the Blue Drop series which focuses on the impact of the aliens in question, the Arume, on human society. The Arume have all-girls schools filled with girls who are raised to be lesbian nymphos (with males as a wholly foreign concept) so they'll have hot human women to screw when the little girls grow up. Naturally, they pass through a "schoolgirl lesbian" stage at some point between puberty and graduation, although not all of the teachers are willing to wait that long....
* Kitagawa from ''Manga/DokiDokiSchoolHours'' has a thing for petite women, which just happens to apply to her teacher - and she is not at all shy about showing her affections.
* ''Is My Hobby Weird?'' is a SliceOfLife mini-series about a girl named Maiko Fujiyama, who spends each morning secretly staring at other girls' butts, on her way to school. Which is how she meets Risa Tsuzuki, who turns out to be her ideal match[[note]]Maiko is attracted to athletic girls with firm, round backsides, which makes Risa her type. Plus, Risa gets aroused when other girls stare up her skirt, which makes Maiko her ideal match as well[[/note]]. The series follows their blossoming relationship using a combination of comedy and mild drama, and ultimately ends with them [[spoiler: forming [[ThreewaySex a threeway]] relationship with Ui]].
* Hazumu and Tomari from ''Manga/KashimashiGirlMeetsGirl'', along with the third girl in the triangle, Yasuna. The other characters {{dismiss|edGender}} [[HideYourLesbians Hazumu's sexuality]] since she [[GenderBender used to be a guy]]; still, Hazumu remains a girl permanently. Tomari, on the other hand, plays the trope completely straight, and Yasuna is [[spoiler: physically (possibly from a genetic mutation, according to "alien-san") incapable of seeing faces of men.]]
* Sakura from ''Manga/PenguinMusume Heart'' often shows extreme interest in intimate interactions with some of her female classmates. Sure, she ''is'' absolutely bonkers, but it happens a bit too often to be coincidental. Not to mention that she tries to force Kujira into marrying her in an alternate time line.
* Nina Einstein from ''Anime/CodeGeass'' fits this trope pretty well. After Princess Euphemia stands up for her in a hostage situation, Nina has a huge obsession with her, and even goes as far as to [[spoiler: masturbate against a table with a picture of Euphemia.]] Later, when [[spoiler: Euphemia dies]], Nina goes insane and threatens to [[spoiler: set off a bomb killing herself, Zero, and many innocent bystanders.]] This is promptly used by [[spoiler: Schneizel, Euphemia's half-brother, who takes the still insane Nina in so she builds an even bigger bomb for him...]]
* Nene, the ClassRepresentative from ''Manga/{{Hyakko}}'', claims to be bisexual--but she is mostly shown drooling over ''girls''.
* Sakuya from ''Anime/CandyBoy'' has a major crush on Kanade and has no qualms about letting everybody know about it. Alas, she has [[OfficialCouple lost by definition]] to [[{{Twincest}} Kanade's twin sister, Yukino]].
* ''LightNovel/ACertainMagicalIndex'': Kuroko, who gets concerned at how much [[FoeYay fun]] [[{{Tsundere}} Mikoto]] seems to be having in her [[UnknownRival rivalry]] with Touma. ClingyJealousGirl, too. She's [[LovableSexManiac even]] [[TooKinkyToTorture worse]] in ''Manga/ACertainScientificRailgun''.
* Makina in ''Manga/CorpsePrincess'' once found herself being stalked by a [[{{Gainaxing}} large-breasted]] lesbian schoolgirl who was attracted to death.
* In ''Manga/MakenKi'', Uruchi and Takaki are canonically lesbian, with implications that Yuuka may be, as well:
** Uruchi is so in love with Haruko, that she openly [[{{fangirl}} fan]][[http://www.mangatown.com/manga/maken_ki/c042/18.html gasms]] over her and became [[http://www.mangatown.com/manga/maken_ki/c044/5.html enraged with jealousy]] when Gouken ripped Haruko's clothes, during their battle.
** There's ample [[HomoeroticSubtext subtext]] which suggests Takaki and Yuuka may [[SecretRelationship secretly be an item]], or that they're {{friends with benefits}}. Such as the flashback in chapter 48, where Yuuka referred to Takaki as, [[http://www.mangatown.com/manga/maken_ki/c048/17.html "her important person".]] Whereas the preface page of chapter 45 plainly shows them engaged in foreplay, while spooning together in lingerie.
* Kanako from ''Manga/MariaHolic'' is the pinnacle of this trope. To start off, she decided to attend an all-girls school in the hopes of find a romantic female partner. She is intensely perverted, and fantasizes about pretty much every girl she comes across. She has a habit of getting {{nosebleed}}s as the result of her fantasies, though she keeps her sexuality a secret from others. Or tries to, anyway.
* ''VisualNovel/YamiToBoushiToHonNoTabibito'' is about one of these searching time and space for her best friend/adoptive older sister Hatsumi [[spoiler:who turns out to be Eve... yes, that Eve]]. Who [[spoiler:returns her feelings,]] but [[spoiler:can only exist in a given world for 16 years at a time]]. Hatsumi herself is at least bisexual, as [[spoiler:a series of very direct love letters shows.]]
* In ''Manga/KannazukiNoMiko'' the two main characters are a pair of [[ReincarnationRomance eternally reincarnating]] Schoolgirl Lesbians.
* Eto Hachibe and Arata Tagoto in ''Manga/IonoTheFanatics''. [[CastFullOfGay Everyone else is just a lesbian]].
* In a similar vein to the above, there is ''Manga/SasamekiKoto''. The focus is on the tall and awkward Sumika's crush on her lesbian but oblivious friend, Kazama, who herself is constantly on the lookout for cute girls to crush on. There are also their classmates Miyako and Tomoe, who are in a relationship. Lastly, YuriFan Aoi Azusa appears to have a crush on Sumika.
* ''Manga/HanjukuJoshi'' is an erotic manga about the relationship between Chitose and Yae, two students at an all-girls school.
%% ''Shoujo Sect'' was cut per the content policy. Do not restore the pothole.
* ''Shoujo Sect'' is set at an AllGirlSchool whose [[CastFullOfGay entire cast is lesbian]], and tells a series of short stories[[note]]some interconnected, while others aren't[[/note]] about different pairings at the school. [[TheProtagonist Momoko]] even has [[TeacherStudentRomance a brief affair with her homeroom teacher]], [[IllGirl Ms. Hayato]], though the crux of the series lies with [[{{deuteragonist}} Shinobu]] trying to express her feelings for Momoko.
* Margot Knight and Malga Naruze in ''LightNovel/HorizonInTheMiddleOfNowhere''. Their official character profiles even list them as 'Lovers'.
* Suruga Kanbaru from ''LightNovel/{{Bakemonogatari}}'' is this for Senjougahara. But she also works as TheTease [[BiTheWay for Koyomi]] and generally acting as a full-blown LovableSexManiac.
* ''LightNovel/BodaciousSpacePirates'' gives us Jenny Dolittle and Lynn Lambretta, who keep it on the down-low while Jenny is President of the school's Yacht Club, but are hardly shy about expressing it after Jenny blasts her way out of an ArrangedMarriage and rendezvous with the Bentenmaru.
* Haruka Tenoh & Michiru Kaioh[=/=]Sailor Uranus & Sailor Neptune in ''Franchise/SailorMoon'' are both pupils of the prestigious Infinity Acadamy though Haruka [[{{Bifauxnen}} prefers the male uniform]]. In the [[Anime/SailorMoon original anime]] The fall for each other about a year before their introduction to the show which is shown in a flashback episode. They are an early example from the '90s so were never shown kissing or doing anything beyond holding hands, but they many several comments that implied they did indeed do the deed offscreen.
* Mari [[spoiler:and later, Akko]] from ''Manga/GirlFriends''. The series is particularly loved and praised outside of Japan for how realistically it portrays a schoolgirl who slowly comes to the realization that she's a lesbian and is in love with her [[spoiler:seemingly]] straight best friend, with all the self-denial, fear, mental anguish, and general {{Gayngst}} that comes with it. It also delves into how the RomanticTwoGirlFriendship culture of Japan affects actual lesbians, contributing to the initial confusion of Mari on what her feelings are [[spoiler:and later obscuring Akko's attempts to communicate her reciprocal feelings. However, it also allows the two to hide their relationship in plain sight, since it leads to no one batting an eyelash at two girls being all cuddly in public]].
* It's implied that Midori from ''Anime/TamakoMarket'' has a crush on Tamako, considering the "Everybody loves somebody/anybody can love anybody" were said while cutting from Midori to Tamako.
* ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica'':
** The main show keeps it to [[HoYay subtext]], but its spinoffs are a little more blatant. Among others, Oriko and Kirika from ''Manga/PuellaMagiOrikoMagica'' are outright stated to be in love, and ''Manga/PuellaMagiKazumiMagica''[='s=] Yuuri's wish was to become another girl and her witch form is a giant heart.
** The end of ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagicaTheMovieRebellion'' features [[spoiler:Homura admitting her feelings for Madoka are romantic in nature, and strong enough to ''rewrite the entire universe'' in order to make her beloved happy forever -- which unfortunately involves [[BroughtDownToNormal sealing away her divine powers]].]]
* ''Manga/SakuraTrick'' is built around this trope. The main characters Yuu and Haruka make out with each other OnceAnEpisode and didn't even mind ''same-sex marriages'', and all other schoolgirls from that show also seem to have more or less lesbian tendencies, with the probably exception of Yuzu.
* ''Manga/PrunusGirl'' has three girls who are lesbians, two of which are in a relationship, who both [[ThreesomeSubtext like to flirt with and tease the third]], and a pair of adult teachers who started their relationship while in school.
* In ''Manga/{{Citrus}}'', Yuzu averted this at first as heterosexual and expected to get a boyfriend, which never happened. As her relationship with her [[NotBloodSiblings step-sister]] Mei deepens, she embraces this trope. Himeko on the other hand plays this trope straight (no pun intended) albeit played for laughs after briefly discussing it.
* ''Manga/KaseSan'' is a sweet, fluffy manga about the burgeoning friendship and then relationship between an ordinary, insecure girl and her popular sports-star crush.
* ''Manga/SgtFrog'' has Koyuki Azumaya. She's a full-on lesbian in the manga, making little effort to hide her feelings for Natsumi Hinata. This was changed in the anime to a RomanticTwoGirlFriendship, likely for censorship reasons, as the anime version was aimed at kids, while the manga is more teen-oriented. The Natsumi/Koyuki pairing still remains popular, nevertheless.
* Shinobu from ''Manga/NininGaShinobuden'' is pretty much [[http://imgur.com/k8LuYeS head over heels]] for her friend Kaede, who is (mostly) oblivious to her feelings.
* In episode 4 of Anime/LadiesVersusButlers while searching for kidnapped Akiharu, Tomomi and Kaoru come across two girls having a make-out session in one of the school's equipment storage rooms.
-->'''Karou:''' It's not them.
-->'''Tomomi:''' But this isn't too bad.
* ''Manga/CastleTownDandelion'' has Karen, Akane's {{Childhood Friend|s}}, who gets a {{nosebleed}} when the latter unwittingly flashed in front of her.
* ''VisualNovel/AoNoKanataFourRhythm'''s Arisaka feels quite strongly about Tobisawa, but makes herself useful by getting her out of bed, dressing her, and towing her off to school. When Tobisawa joins the school's [[FictionalSport Flying Circus]] team, Arisaka immediately joins as well.
* Konoka and Setsuna from ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima'' are [[EveryoneCanSeeIt blatantly]] in love with each other, no matter how much Setsuna might try to deny it.
* ''Manga/InsideMari'':
** Yori is in love with the titular Mari. She is a bullied loner while Mari is the SchoolIdol, but when a man named Isao [[GrandTheftMe bodyswaps]] with Mari she notices and is the only person he turns to for help.
** [[spoiler:Mari]] has [[AmbiguouslyGay heavy implications]] of being lesbian but heavily closeted. She reads porn aimed at men, has turned down every boy who has asked her out, and had an awfully intimate moment with [[spoiler:Yori]] once. As the manga goes on it's suggested that [[spoiler:Mari has a SplitPersonality]] and [[spoiler:that no bodyswap occured]]. If so, [[spoiler:Mari]] is definitely in love with [[spoiler:Yori]] as [[spoiler:"Isao"]] is.
%%* In the {{Hentai}} ''Gintai Saimin'', we have [[{{Seme}} Natsuko]] and [[{{Uke}} Hitomi]].
* ''Manga/MissKobayashisDragonMaid'' has Kanna and Saikawa. Although, they're a bit [[PuppyLove younger]] than the norm. Saikawa admitted that she wanted to marry Kanna in chapter 29 and Kanna tried to... uh... skip straight to the honeymoon.
* ''Manga/UchiNoMusumeNiTeODasuNa''
** [[{{Deuteragonist}} Clara]] finds herself steadily becoming attracted to her best friend, Mei, who harbors a crush on her as well. They even get their own three chapter sidestory titled, ''"Honey, Hold Me Tight!"''[[note]]The title is a pun, referencing Mei's alter ego, [[{{dominatrix}} "Honey, the Hugger"]][[/note]], which concludes with them finally confessing their feelings for each other. They consumate their relationship, wherein, Clara gives Mei her virginity.
** A pair of unnamed girls are seen making love to each other in their dorm room, during chapter 2 of the same story. But they get caught in the act by the school's [[HeroicWannabe student council president.]] The next panel shows she's bound them on their knees, stark naked, and put them on display in the middle of the campus, with signs around their necks [[SlutShaming shaming them for being lesbians.]]
* ''LightNovel/{{Kampfer}}'': When asked what the word "lesbian" means, another character explicitly defines it as girls who are attracted to girls ''during puberty''. The term is used in reference to a Sakura, who is in love with the main character while [[GenderBender he's transformed into a girl]]. [[spoiler:It's later revealed that Sakura's split persona has an entire ''harem'' of girls whom she's brainwashed into being her {{Sex Slave}}s and intends to do the same to the protagonist.]]

[[folder:Comic Books]]
* ''ComicBook/{{Runaways}}'':
** Karolina Dean ([[DiscountLesbians an alien]]) is in love with her best friend Nico, who unfortunately [[IncompatibleOrientation does not return her affections]]. Fortunately for Karolina, she finds new love in a shape-shifting alien named Xavin, [[GenderBender who changes "his" form into that of a woman to please her.]] This new relationship leads to problems throughout the series, primarily revolving around the fact that their two home planets have been locked in a deadly war for years, but also seems to inspire ''jealousy'' in Nico, [[LesYay with some pretty overt subtext that she is beginning to fall for Karolina after all]]. This has led to some [[OneTruePairing disagreement]] and [[OneTrueThreesome arguments]] [[InternetBackdraft amongst the fandom]].
** Molly and Klara are a somewhat more straightforward example, particularly in the last arc, where there is much hand-holding and lap-pillowing as Molly frets over an injured Klara.
* ''ComicBook/YTheLastMan'': In a {{flashback}} about Dr. Allison Mann's college days, she's part of a [[ShockValueRelationship shock and aww couple]] until her girlfriend "grows up" and "ungays". Mann didn't take this well.
* ''[[ComicBook/{{Adjectiveless XMen}} X-Men]]'': Bling (the mutant daughter of 2 hip-hop stars with diamond skin) has a crush on fellow mutant Mercury; she left a love letter on Mercury's door, which led to a fight between the two. Later on, towards the end of the Muertas arc, Mercury told her that next time, "just ask me out." The two then made plans to go out later that week.
* In the ''Comicbook/{{Runaways|2015}}'' series from ''Comicbook/{{Secret Wars|2015}}'', it's mentioned that Comicbook/{{Jubilee}} used to date Pixie (who is bisexual in this continuity). At the end of the series, she hooks up with Frostbite, another one of her female teammates.

[[folder:Films -- Live-Action]]
* ''[[Film/HammerHorror Lust for a Vampire]]'' (1971 film). This exploitation movie seems to assume that in a finishing school for girls, all the young female students are naturally attracted to, and intimate with, each other. The female vampire who becomes a student there doesn't need to hypnotize her classmates to entice them into topless back rubs, going for nude midnight swims, sharing kisses by moonlight, etc.
* ''Film/VForVendetta'': Valerie's first girlfriend. Valerie turns out to be the real deal.
-->'''Valerie:''' I passed my eleven plus, and went to a girl's grammar. It was at school that I met my first girlfriend. Her name was Sarah. It was her wrists -- they were beautiful. I thought we would love each other forever.\\
I remember our teacher telling us that it was an adolescent phase that people outgrew.\\
Sarah did.\\
I didn't.
%%* Played for tragic drama in ''Film/LostAndDelirious''.
* In ''Film/HeavenlyCreatures'', Pauline and Juliet are devoted friends who are assumed to be (and possibly are) this.
* ''Film/ThereseAndIsabelle'' is [[TheFilmOfTheBook based on]] Violette Leduc's semi-autobiographical novel set in a Catholic [[OneGenderSchool school for girls]] in pre-WWII France.
* ''Film/MadchenInUniform'' is a classic film about girls in an [[OneGenderSchool one gender school]]. Many of the girls are in love with [[HotForTeacher one of the teachers]], including the main lead.
* Agnes and Elin, the protagonists in ''[[Film/ShowMeLove Fucking Åmål]]''.

[[folder:Fan Works]]
* Without getting too icky or explicit, some fanfic in the ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'' deals with the question of growing-up friendships among pupils at the Assassins' Guild school. Jocasta Wiggs, a minor character in the canon, is depicted as having a very close friendship with her roomie Emilia Mountjoy-Standish in ''[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/5055274/13/The-Graduation-Class The Graduation Class]]''. The same fic also deals sympathetically [[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/5055274/17/The-Graduation-Class with gay relationships among the boys]]. These things happen at boarding schools...
* The same author also abandoned an attempt at slash-fic in which he tried to write the sex more explicitly. Couldn't do it. Not without [[WordOfGod slipping into tired cliches and a tendency to burst out laughing]]. See ''[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/4990805/1/The-SecondGreatest-Thrill The Second Greatest Thrill]]'' for tired cliches and unintended humour.
* More like MilitaryAcademy Lesbians in "Fanfic/RemembranceOfTheFallen". Tiana Lanstar and Kojami Sobaru aren't a couple yet in the [[FramingDevice framed narrative]] (they were dating by second year and eventually married), but they're close enough friends that there's a rumor going around campus that they're a couple. Commander Thrass warns Kanril Eleya about this when he assigns her to tutor Tia and Sobaru, though he's pretty sure the rumor is false.
* Sayaka and Kyoko[[note]]WordOfGod states that they're the same characters as in ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica'', just in a world where {{Magical Girl}}s don't exist.[[/note]] in ''Fanfic/AdviceAndTrust'' were originally this and started dating Kensuke [[TheBeard so they'd have plausible deniability for their own relationship]], but [[BiTheWay they both came to love him]] and are now in a genuine three-way relationship.
* [[ShrinkingViolet Rina Kirishima]] from ''Blog/ThePredespairKids,'' although she's actually a schoolgirl panromantic asexual. Still, she ends up falling for [[VisualNovel/SuperDanganronpa2 Peko]] after she asks her to teach her how to use a sword and the two end up becoming good friends.

* In Colette's classic ''Literature/ClaudineAtSchool'', various girls are interested in one another. Claudine first falls in love with the pretty teaching assistant Aimee, then switches her affections to Aimee's sister when she goes off with the Headmistress. Considering this is set in France in the 1890s, no one seems to bat an eyelid at these goings on between girls. The affair between Aimee and the Headmistress is another story.
* In ''Literature/TheWheelOfTime'', teenage novices in the White Tower often become "Pillow Friends," which can range from being close friends, to being in full-blown lesbian relationships. These relationships usually end when the novices become Aes Sedai, though some interactions later on indicate that they do sometimes continue; it seems to be a matter of personal taste. One woman haughtily dismisses the relationship as one for novices and not to be upheld by someone of higher achievement, whereas another thinks nothing of what she perceives as a sign that two women have been together for many years.
* ''Literature/AnnieOnMyMind'' by Nancy Garden is about two schoolgirl lesbians, Annie and Liza, and is one of the first Western books to present lesbianism in a positive light. Needless to say, the MoralGuardians are on the phone.
* Even with all the LesYay and RomanticTwoGirlFriendship floating around in the ''Literature/GemmaDoyle'' Trilogy, there's a canonical and very deep romantic love between [[spoiler:Felicity]] and [[spoiler:Pippa]].
* [[spoiler: Brie]] and Lara from ''Literature/{{Commencement}}'' by J. Courtney Sullivan are a slightly older version of the trope, occurring during their time at Smith College. The former claims that the relationship is just a college experiment and she'll go back to guys when she graduates. [[spoiler: She doesn't, although she does question her relationship multiple times in the years after she leaves Smith.]]
* ''Literature/{{Lolita}}''. Lo tells Humbert of her first sexual experience with a female tentmate at summer camp; she tries her first boy the following year. Humbert uses this evidence of [[FilleFatale precocious sexuality]] to justify his own predatory actions.
* Violette Leduc's ''Literature/ThereseAndIsabelle'' tells the semi-autobiographical story of two students at a Catholic [[OneGenderSchool boarding school for girls]] in pre-WWII France.
* Amelia, one of the main characters of ''Literature/ReconstructingAmelia'', finds her first love in [[spoiler:Dylan, a slightly older girl in a school club they're both part of]]. [[LoveHurts It]] [[ForegoneConclusion doesn't]] [[{{Gayngst}} end]] [[FriendVersusLover well]], [[spoiler:especially once Dylan's {{Yandere}} of a best friend Zadie finds out]].
* ''[[Literature/ThreeHundredRains 300 Rains]]'': The main character's wife is reminded by her mother reminds her daughter that she used to date women in college when there were no available men, something she'd forgotten about herself.

[[folder:Live-Action TV]]
* Sophie Webster and Sian Powers from ''Series/CoronationStreet'' also paired up near the end of their standard schooling. Sian may be bisexual, or [[SingleTargetSexuality Sophie-sexual]] as they are, thus far, too focused on each other to even acknowledge other people exist. The last few months of 2010 saw the couple, now at college but still both under 18, making their relationship public before sleeping together in the New Year's Eve episode.
* Paige and Alex from ''Series/{{Degrassi}}'', starting off as enemies, becoming acquaintances, friends, then finally lovers. And with such a touching storyline, they end up having a very rocky relationship that ends with a terrible and humiliating breakup.
* Santana and Brittany in ''Series/{{Glee}}''. Particularly the following lines from "Sectionals":
-->'''Santana:''' Sex isn't dating.\\
'''Brittany''': If it were, Santana and I would be dating.
* Emma and Jenny from the German show ''Series/HandAufsHerz'' have been headed towards this for a while. A [[SlapSlapKiss slap slap almost-kiss]] relationship led to an actual first kiss, then more kisses, then catastrophic misunderstandings and broken hearts. Recently, they both managed to get over it and as of episode 147 are a couple, albeit secretly.
* Naomi Campbell ([[NamesTheSame not that one]]) and Emily Fitch from ''Series/{{Skins}}''.

* The Russian band [[Music/{{Tatu}} t.A.T.u.]] was a rather crass attempt by producer Ivan Shapovalov to cash in on this trope. It takes a turn for the sordid when you consider that both girls were 13 years old when the band was formed. Outright NightmareFuel is achieved when you learn that before forming the band Shapovalov was a child psychologist.
* It's heavily implied in the music video for Music/{{Aerosmith}}'s "Crazy" that the video's two main characters (played by Liv Tyler and Alicia Silverstone, her 3rd appearance in an Aerosmith vid) are this.
* The Music/{{Vocaloid}} song [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=crhiFWrVbTk "Doki Doki Yuri Gakuen"]] is all about this trope.
* The Music/PrettyBalanced song "The Skin" is about this. They also have Schoolboy Gays with "Floating" in a TearJerker example.

[[folder:Video Games]]
* In the ''VideoGame/HarvestMoon'' spinoff series ''VideoGame/RuneFactory'', this happens. In ''VideoGame/RuneFactory2'', two twin girls can be ''courted'' and fake proposed to and [[ChildhoodMarriagePromise "married"]]. However, the priest says something about how girls can't get married. This, oddly enough, was left in the English version of the game. However, it had some... [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jat7pav9y5s unusual]] changes.
* ''VideoGame/BlackCloset'' is set at a OneGenderSchool, where the boundaries between this and RomanticTwoGirlFriendship can get fuzzy. As the player character, you can pursue relationships with various other girls and explicitly declare whether you're looking for friendship or romance.
* Arnice and Lilysse's relationship in ''VideoGame/NightsOfAzure'' began like this as narrated in the Reminiscence backstories of the game, with Arnice infiltrating Lilysse's school as a student with orders to protect her, only to fall in LoveAtFirstSight with Lilysse when she saw the girl sleeping in the garden. The two's feelings for each other further developed during their time together at school, so that by the start of the game proper when they're working as [[KnightAndLady Knight and Priestess]], the two were already in a relationship.

* [[spoiler:Misha]] from ''VisualNovel/KatawaShoujo'' is a lesbian and in love with her straight best friend, who can be wooed by Hisao. In the alpha version of the game, it was revealed that homophobic bullying was a good reason for why she transferred to the school [[spoiler:when she has no major disabilities. The "I wanna be a sign language teacher" deal only appeared after meeting Shizune.]]
* ''VisualNovel/AoiShiro'' is a GirlsLove visual novel with a lot of yuri couples, but surprisingly, only two involve two high school girls, and only one really plays it up - that is Shouko and Yasumi, where Shouko is the cool kendo team captain [[SempaiKouhai sempai]] and Yasumi her delicate but hard-working kouhai.
* ''VisualNovel/KindredSpiritsOnTheRoof'' has the main character playing matchmaker for several couples at her [[OneGenderSchool all girls school]] so schoolgirl lesbians by definition take up a large percentage of the cast.

[[folder:Web Comics]]
* Jessica from ''Webcomic/{{Loserz}}'', forming a pair with bisexual Jodie, beginning in [[http://the-qlc.com/loserz/go/494 this strip]].
* [[spoiler:Fuuko's]] from ''Webcomic/RedString'' unrequited crush on an upperclassman sports star [[spoiler: Maaya]] causes a big scandal at their school. Fortunately for her she later moves to Tokyo where she meets someone [[spoiler:Hanae Niijima]] who does return her feelings.
* Being that ''WebComic/MagickChicks'' is set an AllGirlSchool, it was to be expected that there'd be a few girl-on-girl relationships, though it's mostly low-key.
** The splash page for chapter 5 [[http://www.magickchicks.com/strips-mc/dating_games_-_chapter_5 showed several lesbian couples]] meeting at their lockers, which lead [[EvilRedhead Cerise]] to pretend to pair up [[http://www.magickchicks.com/strips-mc/a_good_second_banana with Callista]], [[SocialClimber in order to gain popularity.]]
** Faith, however, is the comic's main source lesbianism, as [[ReallyGetsAround she has a reputation]] [[ThePornomancer for having slept with much of the student body at Artemis]], for which [[TheHedonist she makes no apology.]]
* [[ManicPixieDreamGirl Missi Fuller]] from ''Webcomic/{{Misfile}}'' dived headlong into dating Ash after being aproached by [[OurAngelsAreDifferent Rumi]]. The problem is, Ash [[GenderBender isn't exactly a girl]] and is stuck in a perpetual identity crisis, so Missi got dumped almost immediately. Missi has refused to give up though, is currently somewhere in StalkerWithACrush territory, and getting more public with her affections [[http://www.misfile.com/index.php?page=1687 lately]]. One arc [[http://www.misfile.com/index.php?page=1795 explores her feelings]] [[SingleTargetSexuality toward Ash]] in more depth.
* ''Webcomic/{{Heliothaumic}}'' has Cassandra and Lydia, who first paired up in High School as Lydia rebelled against her [[AncientEgypt ancient Egyptian-themed religion]], broke up later on, and have recently gotten back together.
* ''Webcomic/YuMeDream'' is, at first, a Schoolgirl Lesbians-themed story, with the slight twist that they're at a Catholic school (and it's also hinted that one of the girls' parents is homophobic). But, after the DramaBomb of issue 9, it turns out to be more than that...
* Rachel Einhorn in ''Webcomic/KevinAndKell''. It's a bit of a surprise to her when her target turns out to actually be a guy. The fact she's lesbian is only highlighted here; no-one really cares otherwise (although the male target of her misdirected affections starts going for more masculine attire). Later, she got a steady girlfriend, [[spoiler:Joan Hoof, and [[http://www.kevinandkell.com/2014/kk0218.html they're getting married]]]].
* A running subplot in the first half of ''Webcomic/{{Avalon}}'' is whether Phoebe was one, and whether Ceilidh was interested. [[spoiler:In the synopsis ending they both turn out to be.]]
* In ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive'', Ellen and Nanase and apparently [[spoiler:[[http://www.egscomics.com/?date=2012-08-06 Catalina and Rhoda]]]].
* ''Webcomic/KarinDou4koma'': For a comic where the characters are largely [[LoveableSexManiac loveable]] [[AllWomenAreLustful lustful]] [[EveryoneIsGay lesbians]], you might expect a large amount of this, but nope. It's just Ran and one other girl.
* In ''Webcomic/GunnerkriggCourt'', after some initial denial, [[http://www.gunnerkrigg.com/?p=1202 Kat and Paz]] get together.
* Sun Jing from ''Webcomic/TheirStory'' is head over heels for a girl at a nearby high school named Qiu Tong. She [[ClosetKey didn't realize]] she likes girls until she met Qiu Tong. Currently it's vague if Qiu Tong likes Sun Jing yet or not, [[spoiler:and in fact she was ObliviousToLove]], though it's a ForegoneConclusion they will date.
* Maria Strongwell in ''{{Webcomic/Rain}}'' was originally a closeted example. When her brother Rudy came out to their parents, it didn't go well and the two of them were sent to a Catholic school, Rudy to "fix" him and Maria to dissuade her from following his example. She ended up hiding it for so long, even [[TheBeard pretending to date Gavin to keep up appearances,]] although she did develop a crush on Rain. Later, after [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome coming out in front of the entire school]], she became a more traditional example after she started dating fellow classmate Chanel Montoya, who is a Homoromantic Asexual.
* Part of the story in Webcomic/TheSecretsOfTheAfterlife happens in an all-girls school where most of the students are lesbians. [[http://thesecretsoftheafterlife.webcomic.ws/comics/47]]
* Ada and Teresa from ''Webcomic/ScalieSchoolie'' are this, with Ada even forging school records so the dim-witted Teresa would be admitted. Charlie also has an obvious crush on Violet.

[[folder:Web Original]]
* ''Literature/WhateleyUniverse'': Given that the main characters live in a special dormitory for gay students, this was [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin inevitable]].
* ''WebVideo/TheVeronicaExclusive'': This being an adaptation of ''{{Theatre/Heathers}}'', Veronica and J.D. are still the OfficialCouple here. It just so happens that J.D. is a young woman in this version.
* Sookie and [=SoulOwl=] from ''WebVideo/YandereHighSchool'' are revealed to be in a relationship.
