At the most basic level, siblings are another version of you, with slightly different genetic make-up and a couple of years variation in experience. You’re stuck with them for life, through family dramas, deaths, arguments, and those horrendous Sunday morning gatherings when you’re really really hungover, they’re there. You know each other inside out, which makes you best friends and worst enemies. You love them to pieces, no matter what. So here’s my celebration of the best of sibling love (and rivalry) in the world of TV and film:

Elsa and Anna, Frozen

The most obvious opener for this list, earlier this year Elsa and Anna proved the only true love you need is your sister.

Katniss and Primrose Everdeen, The Hunger Games

Katniss was always strong for her little sister, especially when they lost their father, and volunteered so Prim wouldn’t have to face the horrors of the Hunger Games.

Nathan and Lucas Scott, One Tree Hill

Throughout nine seasons they went from sworn enemies to best friends, and were arguably the best thing that ever happened to the other.

Thor and Loki, Thor/Thor: The Dark World/The Avengers

They may have their problems, a lot of them, but these adopted brothers grew up together and love each other, deep deep down.

Monica and Ross Geller, Friends

The banter, comedy, and emotional connection between these two feels so genuine I would believe they were siblings in real life. Also, they have a dance.

Damon and Stefan Salvatore, The Vampire Diaries

These brothers have been fighting over girls for centuries, but they are would still do anything for the other, to keep them alive and well.

The Mikaelsons, The Originals/The Vampire Diaries

If there’s ever a family that has issues it’s the Mikaelsons, but through death, daggers, witches and vampire hunters, they have stuck together “always and forever”.

Violet, Klaus and Sunny Baudelaire, A Series of Unfortunate Events

They’ve been through a series of unfortunate events, more unfortunate events than anyone should have to go through, but together they make it through anything life throws at them with a smile on their faces.

Phineas Flynn and Ferb Fletcher, Phineas and Ferb

Look up ‘teamwork’ in the dictionary and you find these two. Ferb doesn’t even need to talk, because Phineas has his back.

Anna and Kate Fitzgerald, My Sister’s Keeper

Anna was born to save Kate’s life, but all wanted to do Kate was to repay the favour and give her younger sister her life back.

Iris and Graham Simpkins, The Holiday

We may not see them together for most of the film, but when we do they dance, and he stays on her sofa when he’s had too much to drink. That’s sibling love, ok?

Charlie and Raymond, Rainman

Throughout this touching film Charlie grows to accept his brother and make him his priority.

The Kardashians, Keeping Up With The Kardashians

Say what you want about the Kardashians, but they stand by their siblings through thick and thin, and obviously love each other unconditionally.
