Day 22 – Favorite non-sexual relationship
You know, I think I have to say Polgara and Belgarath here. Annoying as their banter gets, it’s still really quite funny and entertaining. And who wouldn’t get thoroughly pissed off with their father over 5000 or so years? Especially if you started off angry. Plus, I’ve just re-read the Belgariad, and it’s still fresh in my mind. The one thing that bugged me was the assumption that basically Polgara always gets her way. I think this is tempered in her eponymous book, where you get to see the sacrifices she made along the way and more clearly her relationship with all of her family.
Other favourites include Jane and Lizzie, Silk and Barak, Leaf and Arthur… and lots more that I can’t remember.
