General Information
Shipped Characters: Patricia Williamson and Joy Mercer
Length of Relationship: N/A
Status: Best Friends
Rivals: Jabian
Other Pairing Names: Jatricia

Joytricia (Joy and Pa/tricia) is the friendship pairing of Patricia Williamson and Joy Mercer in House of Anubis. The two were best friends before Joy disappeared mysteriously in Season 1, and Season 1's plot is heavily based on Patricia's unwavering determination to find her best friend and make sure that she's safe. They would sit next to each other in class, often content to disregard the teacher's lecture and mess around instead. On the night of Joy's disappearance, the two had an all-nighter of romcoms planned; Patricia expresses her distress over this, saying that Joy would never ditch their plans without telling her first, but is dismissed as being paranoid. Patricia and Joy were roommates up until Joy disappeared, at which point American Nina Martin becomes her new roommate, much to the irritation of Patricia. They again become roommates in Season 2 when Joy returns, as well as sharing with Mara.

In a deleted scene from the Finale of Season One (unlocked by completing "The Secrets Within"), the two are seen talking to each other during Prom. Patricia catches Joy eyeing Fabian as he's waiting for Nina, and asks if she still likes him with a slightly exasperated tone. Joy nods, adding that "that Nina girl had better watch out." Patricia rolls her eyes, clearly accustomed to Joy's slightly melodramatic tendencies.

Patricia is Joy's voice of reason, chiding her after she kisses Fabian, etc. The two began to grow apart in Season Two despite their strong friendship in episodes prior, mainly due to Joy's constant attempts to get Fabian to see her in a romantic light; this coupled with the fact that Patricia was spending a lot of time with Sibuna left little time for the two to work things out between them. After a massive fallout in Season Two, things are tense between the two, but Patricia is quick to forgive her friend when Joy apologizes and joins Sibuna. Patricia and Joy clearly know a lot about each other, them being best friends, etc. Patricia knowing how to calm Joy down when Amber says something that upsets her, and Joy being able to comfort/help Patricia through her guy troubles. In Season 3 they don't hang out as much as they used to in the previous seasons. Mostly because Patricia was dealing with Sibuna and Joy was helping Mara and Willow get back at Jerome, her current boyfriend. However, they seemed to be more closer in The Touchstone of Ra as Joy acted more like Patricia and spent more time with her and they were both annoyed with the "newbies".
