Seriously, write the premise for an intense and dynamic friendship between two men/guys. They ought to complement each other, as in, they should be very different but in a way that makes things work. I don't know, look up "complement" in a dictionary. Or wait, I will!


1 a : something that fills up, completes, or makes perfect



Something which completes, something which combines with something else to make up a complete whole; loosely, something perceived to be a harmonious or desirable partner or addition. [from 19th c.]

, The Guardian, 13 Dec 09: London's Kings Place, now one year old, established itself as a venue for imaginative programming, a complement to the evergreen Wigmore Hall.


Examples of felicitous bromances:

Captain James T Kirk and Mr. Spock from Star Trek
Dr. Gregory House and Dr. James Wilson from House MD
Turk and J.D. from Scrubs
Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson
Bertie Wooster and his inimitable valet Jeeves

...many others.
