Re: MC fighting alongside lover

Looking for some action where the MC and his/her lover depend on each other and fight together. Also early romance.

I'm a bit tired of the nonsensical 1v1 duels, teamwork fights are the best. Some authors have the bad habit of having people spread out into 1v1 instead of helping each other, the focus is all on superman fighting and looking cool instead of a believable fight.

That's totally what I'm writing, but the characters are all boys with feminine appearances... so I'm not sure if you're into that.
On the off-chance that you're interested... basically in my story, Purger pairs are boys that have undergone brutal training since birth to kill monsters. The unique strengths and abilities of each duo usually complement each other.
Their relationships are quoted to be deeper than lovers, perhaps even too dependent on each other; if one dies, his partner will lose his will to live.

1v1 duels can be good if there is a reason for it. Just 'and the they fought and nobody did anything bcause it was cool' is annoying, but if one person has appealed or insulted the other person's pride or implied they can't handle such a solo fight and they are someone who is confident in themselves, then it can be fun. Or in symbolic fights that said partner feels she shouldn't but in because it would taint the accomplishment. 

Sort of relative, I have a novel but it's only one scene where they are together as a Battle Couple.

A revisionist, comedic, coming of age cultivation novel about teamwork, family and first love... And fighting and forming a sect!


Three young friends try to make their way together, through the dog-eat-dog cultivation world of the jianghu -- and even worse, their teens!.
They have chosen to take the path less travelled, by rising as a single entity -- of three entirely separate individual people -- The Thundering Tortoise Trio!
Along their merry, yet sometimes scary, way, Jian ChengFatty Li Feng and Fairy Fen Ling will forsake their own petty selfishness, their hateful overbearing sect, conventional cultivation wisdom and even the entire righteous path, for the family they have become... And for benefits of course!
After all, everyone loves benefits!
Join these three friends with benefits (*we're not changing the title though...), as they probably overcome every obstacle (* but no promises) to bravely forge their own future!

It's not on RRl but one of my favorite stories is Jack of All Trades. It's a japanese light novel that isn't a harem and the mc isn't completely spineless. Also though he is OP he's not as OP as a lot of other mc's which is a plus for me but maybe not for you. My only complaint is that there really isn't much of a plot and it can be a little slow at times.
