ROTK-inspired Tribonds

I finished listening to the main part of The Return of the King. I just have a little bit of the appendices left. The last few chapters made me think of some more tribonds. I'm not entirely satisfied with the first one, as I think Rose/Nine is not quite as close a fit as the other two. The first two are so close I almost think this incident in HDM may have been a conscious imitation of the one in ROTK. HDM is full of references to Lewis, after all, so it's not too hard to believe there might be some references to Tolkien thrown in as well. Anyway...bonus points if you can both guess the connection AND come up with a better third example besides Rose/Nine.

1. Eowyn and Faramir...Will and Lyra...Rose and the Ninth Doctor

2. Sam Gamgee...Neville Longbottom...E.T.

After writing all that, it occurs to me that Kyo/Tohru might be a better third example for #1. But I'll leave it as is, and still leave open the invitation to provide other, possibly better, examples. I'm still not fully satisfied with that anyway, as I'd really prefer a third example that is also from a prose novel.

1. I said which Doctor! No, I didn't make a mistake. I mean Nine, Christopher Eccleston, the first Doctor after the reboot.

2. Oh, that does work, but I'm looking for something a little bit more peculiar to these characters. Think something more specific to Neville (since lots of wizards fly, after all).

1.) I plead tiredness, I was off last night & clearly was bleary eyed...

2.)they all had glowy type things, Samwise picked up the light of Earendil, Neville's remembrall & E.T.'s tummy...

I've been wracking my brain on this one and maybe finally have a glimmer: does it have to do in some way with horticulture?

Re: #2

No, it doesn't "have something to do with horticulture". That basically *is* the answer. ;) They all have green thumbs, so to speak.
