Quite a question! Couple spring to mind from Jane Austen, Dickens, Tolkien, Arthurian legend - the whole of literature indeed!

In my teens I would probably have said 'Jane Eyre and Rochester,' but with adult hindsight it's all a bit intense and melodramatic.

Especially in the bits I haven't yet fleshed out in detail, would I fall through the page?(less)
