Odd Couplings, Book Version

This post at Bookriot is one of the best things I’ve read in a while. It’s a listing of the Top Ten Made-Up Literary Couples, with explanations of why the two belong together. With pairings like Jane Eyre/Rhett Butler, Katniss Everdeen/Aragorn, and Bella Swan/Lestat, how can you miss?

Reading a post like this makes you think of the possibilities. How about these?
Guy Montag and Belle (Beauty and the Beast) – Okay, cheating a little since she’s a movie character, but she’s drawn to tortured, guilty souls and could totally feed his awakened hunger for books!
Laura Ingalls and Hawkeye (Last of the Mohicans) – These two share a “westering” spirit of travel and a love of adventure.
Other ideas?
