When it comes to making lists, I’ve either got more ideas than I know how to organize and put together. Or I’m in this struggle phase that goes bust and doesn’t work. However, at the last minute, I’m rushing to put together something curated because I have this odd personality quirk that is hard to let something go if it feels like a “to-do” task. Thus today there’s a list of dynamic character duos from books, or at least they originated in books.DYNAMIC DUOS! SEVEN FUN AND FAVORITE CHARACTER DUOS #TOPTENTUESDAY #BOOKS #BOOKCHARACTERS #ELIZBETHBENNET #HAWKEYE #BLACKWIDOW PEGGYCARTER #AGENTCARTER Click To Tweet
You see, the reason I’m saying they “originate” in books is because most of these characters are not people I’ve met in books. Instead they are characters I only know from TV or film because while I do make it a rule, more recently, to try and read a book before seeing the film, once upon a time I never did that. So, this is where we’re at; in a place where I know and love some dynamic duos from literature but haven’t actually met them on the pages. Still, there good characters so let’s move on.
DYNAMIC CHARACTER DUOS FROM BOOKS

1: ELIZABETH & JANE BENNET
2: PEGGY CARTER & JARVIS
Technically these two aren’t from a book per se, but they are comic book characters, so I’m making these two from Agent Carter (former ABC show) work. Plus, is there any crime-fighting duo cooler than these two? Find the show digitally on Amazon
3: GIL GRISSOM & SARA SIDLE
Love these two from CSI. (And yes, I realize they have no connection to a book.) Sadly, we don’t see them together too often on screen in a personal sense, but I love them as teammates and as teammates. Of course their story isn’t over, it’s just that I’m still “in progress” watching this. Find show digitally on Amazon
4: SHERLOCK HOLMES & JOHN WATSON
Never read the books, but I’ve seen the BBC series and of course, do enjoy the RDJ feature adaptations, too. They’re great characters and despite Sherlock’s brash manner, we still like him. Find the BBC series digitally on Amazon | Add book on Goodreads
5: NATASHA ROMANAFF & CLINT BARTON
These two aren’t a team in the sense that they make up the whole of the Avengers, but they are paired off a lot, where their friendship in the Avengers world grows, and I love how easy-going their friendship is. Find film digitally on Amazon
6: ANNE SHIRLEY AND DIANA BERRY
We love a good bestie duo, and Anne and Diana are among the very best. I’d also add Anne and Gilbert, too! Those two are dynamic and we love ‘em so much. Find film (DVD) on Amazon | Add book on Goodreads
7: OLIVER QUEEN AND FELICITY SMOAK
Not many die hard Olicity shippers around anymore, but I’m not one of them. Last I saw them (which was in the third season or so), I still adore these two both as members of Team Arrow, fighting-for-the-good against villains, and as a couple. If there is a fault line in their coupling, this lies directly on the doorstep of the writers. I would also point to Oliver and Diggle as a great duo, too! I love their friendship even their tougher times. Find show digitally on Amazon
What about you? Who are your favorite dynamic duos in fiction? Do you know them from the books or do you, like me, rarely read the books they’re from? Do you root for any of these? Which ones make your lists? Comment all the comments below. Let’s chat.
