This is Fool and Fitz from Robin Hobb’s books.
I see them as the most heartbreaking and beautiful couple from all fantasy books ever.
I love Robin Hobb for creating them, making them so real. And I hate her (metaphorically speaking, of course) for separating them in the end.
In my head canon they are together. And Burrich is alive, with Molly.
I’ve tried my best to make the Fool look androgynous, they way you can’t tell either he’s a boy or a girl. In my head canon, it’s Fitz only, who knows the truth, and it doesn’t matter anything to him.
Because he loves this beautiful creature of unearthly wisdom and beauty, in all possible ways.
