Ok, I don't know who else watches/watched Dawson's Creek but I find HUGE similarities to the Joey and Pacey's relationship(Jacey, JP) to Brucas (BL); and Joey and Dawson's realtionship (Doey, JD) to Leyton(LP). Ok... Doey and Leyton are 'platonic soulmates'. i.e. they share similar interests JD film, analyzing, academic fulfillment; LP music, abandonment, the arts (writing and drawing). LP and JD seem to be unable to function normally with or without the other. Both share traumatic experiences and are there for each other which undoubtedly gives them a close emotional bond.
