Fantasy friendships

Friendship: When in sickness and in health, in D&D and in moving heavy furniture up and down stairs, in feasts and in cold pizza, in love and in heartbreak, we promise to stay by certain people and cheer them on.

Shared laughter, shared confidences, and shared experiences build the foundation of most friendships. Sometimes it feels like friendship takes second ship to romance in a lot of modern stories, but it's a theme that still shows up regularly. Where would Frodo be without Samwise, or Wilbur without Charlotte, or Cimorene without Kazul, or Kaylee without Inara? 

What are some of the best friendships in the science fiction and fantasy stories you've enjoyed?
