Top 5 Wednesday- Favorite M/M Couples

Top Five Wednesday is hosted by Sam from Thoughts on Tomes.  The Goodreads group with weekly prompts can be found here.

This week’s topic is:

Favorite M/M Couples Who are your favorite dudes loving other dudes? (Note: this isn’t specifically cis gay couples, but also applies to couples that include bi men, trans men, pan men, ace men, etc.)

Sadly, I did not have NEARLY enough examples to choose from!  I need to fix this.  So you KNOW I will be adding to my ever growing TBR from everyone else who has participated in this T5W tag.

***Obviously none of the pictures I include are mine.  They are Google Image results for fan art***

5. Rhy Maresh and Alucard Emery (Shades of Magic Series by V.E. Schwab)


I’m actually not a huge fan of Rhy, but I LOVE Alucard.  Oh I love him so much.  And he loves Rhy so much.  And I love love- the really real, through thick and thin kind of love. So, there’s that.

4. Jesper Fahey and Wylan Van Eck (Six of Crows Duology by Leigh Bardugo)


I just love the combination of flirty and shy with these two.  And I love how they both want to protect each other as best they can.

3. Sam Gamgee and Frodo Baggins (Lord of the Rings Trilogy by JRR Tolkien)


So this isn’t actually a thing, and it’s been a long while since I’ve read LOTR, but I remember crying my eyes out as Sam carries Frodo to fulfill his quest.  This is an example of pure love.  True love.  Sam sees Frodo at his very lowest and weakest… the worst possible version of him… and never loses faith in his friend.  They can be soulmates without having a romantic type love relationship, right?  I’m counting it.

2.Aristotle Mendoza and Dante Quintana (Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe by Benjamin Alire Saenz)


Oh these two.  I love these boys.  I cry with these boys… like, on the regular.  I have returned to them again and again because I love their story.  I love their friendship, I love their growth, I love their struggles, I love their families.  I LOVE THEM!

Ari and Dante were totally my #1 M/M couple…. until I remember this ship that never sailed:


Merlin and Arthur Pendragon (BBC Series Merlin)


I love this show.  So much.  But I’ve only ever watched the last episode once in the 3 times I’ve watched the series through.  I can’t handle it.  This was so much more than a bromance.  This was true love.  Just try and convince me otherwise.
