Fandom Mashups #1

Fandom Mashups
Fandom Mashups is a new original feature here at Lunar Rainbows Reviews and it's basically my way of creating dream teams of all my fandoms and having some fun with them.  The idea is that every week, I propose a unique fictional scenario and then build my personal dream team of five fictional characters from five different fandoms to complete the task!  Anyone is welcome to join in on the fandom fun and whip up a post - all I ask is that you link back to me somewhere in your post :)


Hi everyone!  Full disclosure: I've been contemplating starting this kind of post for a long time now. At one point or another, I was browsing fandom stuff on Pinterest, and I thought: wouldn't it be cool if I could make up my own fictional dream team? Take my favorite characters from books, television and film and have them team-up for some general epicness. Yes, that sounds awesome! (Or maybe that's just me) Anyway, the idea just wouldn't leave me alone and soon I was thinking about all the different scenarios I could imagine and which characters from my fandoms I could pick to make the best team-ups. Naturally, I wanted to incorporate this into the blog because this is where I fangirl the most. So, without further ado, let's get started with this week's topic and Dream Team: 

You're stranded on a deserted island. Who do you want there with you?

I decided to go with a simple topic this week, to get the ball rolling.  So, if I'm in a fictional world and I'm stranded on a deserted island, this is who I'd want with me:

Captain Jack Sparrow

This guy Captain seems to have a knack for getting himself out of a tight spot. And he certainly has had some success in escaping deserted islands in the past - even if it was by sea turtles mate - so I think he'd be the one to get stuck with.

Hermione Granger

If anyone could come up with a plan to get anyone out of ANY kind of tight spot, it'd be Hermione. And at the very least, she'd surely have some good reading material in that bag of hers to pass the time...not to mention all the quality bff time we'd get to spend together. What?

Merry and/or Pippin

If we're going to be stuck for awhile, these guys seem to have the best sort of attitude for it.  Bonus: they're quite good at finding food and drink, even if it is hidden in the most unlikely places^^ I put them both in for a few reasons. 1. they come off as a total package deal to me. And 2. I couldn't find a gif of just one of them >.<


Katniss Everdeen

Katniss' survival skills would definitely come in handy on a deserted island and what's more is that if we're ever in danger, we can be sure she'll kick some ass or go down fighting.  I'm also pretty sure she'd be helpful in the execution stages of our escape plan. And again, I want some quality bff time with the girl. I think me, her and Hermione would have a blast together XD

John Watson

Pretty sure Watson's soldier past would come in handy in a tight spot and since Hermione already has the brains/cleverness area covered, my money's on John to help us survive. AND he doubles as Bilbo Baggins which would be all kinds of awesome.  Plus, he's adorable. So there's that.


Those are my picks for this week's deserted island topic! I'd love to know what you guys think of this feature. Is it a keeper? Remember, anyone's welcome to join in - I've added a linky below in case anyone does want to link up and if not well - let me know who you'd want on a deserted island with you in the comments :)

  1. YAY!!!! I'm so excited to see this post go up! All of your choices are so perfect- I never would have thought of Jack Sparrow; I hope there's some rum around on the island somewhere, LOL. I will definitely write up a post and join in on the fun! :D

    1. Awww thank you Lee ♥ I recently rewatched all the Pirates of the Caribbean movies, so I couldn't help but remember his 'escapes' when I did up this post. At any rate, if the rum supplies are low on the island, he'll be even more motivated to get us out of there LOL

  2. This is a great idea, it's definitely a keeper! I might just have to join in ;) (although the linky doesn't seem to have popped up yet).

    You picked some great people for your Desert Island Team, Hermione and Katniss are my favourites though - I might have to adopt them for my own team ;) My only worry with Captain Jack Sparrow is that he might get rum withdrawal after a while, and that'd make him very difficult to live with....

    1. Oops! Thanks for the reminder Faith, I just added the linky o_O

      hahahah yeah, those ladies could make almost ANY team ♥ But the way I see it with Jack is that without rum, he'll be all the more inclined to help us escape XD

  3. That is one dream team, I agree ! They're all pretty serious, though, except Jack Sparrow and Merry/Pipin - fortunately, those three would bring some comic relief... or catastrophe to break the monotony !

    1. ''those three would bring some comic relief... or catastrophe to break the monotony !'' hahahaha^^ You are so right, either way it should be entertaining :D

  4. Great picks! Although I think Hermione would annoy me a bit because she can be bossy. However I can always hang out with Merry and Pippin!

    1. LOL she could definitely be frustrating in the long run, but I think we'd manage to escape fairly quick (or, I hope)!

  5. I think Hermione will go crazy from Captain Jack Sparrow's sass and attitude. Not to mention there's also Merry&Pippin. That would be a total riot. :) Love this new feature, Micheline! :)

  7. Oo this is such a fun feature! I'd say with that team you will be off that island pretty darn fast though and won't get to hang out with them all! ;-)

  8. I applaud you for making such a fun feature. I just wrote up my post and had the most fun writing it and deciding who would be on my team =D.
    Jack Sparrow is perfect! although there's always the chance that he would find a way off the island and leave without the rest of you, but Katniss would keep in line though.

    1. Thank you Kimberly^^ I'm heading over to your post straight away, thanks so much for joining it :D I'm hoping that Captain Jack would grow fond enough of me (or us) to bring us along on his swashbuckling adventures. Yo-Ho! And if not, you're right: I think Katniss could keep him in line ;)

  9. These are great picks! I like this feature very much. What's next week's topic? :)
    Merry and Pippin do come as a package, don't they? :D Such cool hobbits.
    Hmm, I'd maybe add Luna Lovegood to the mix, she'd be hilarious and would definitely provide some fresh insight into the flora & fauna of the desert island!

    1. Thank you Kaja^^ I actually added a list of upcoming topics in the Fandom Tab at the top of the page. The next topic is: You have to study for a HUGE test. Who do you want on your study team?

      LOVE Merry and Pippin, they're SO fun and sweet ♥ Luna is an excellent one, she would totally be entertaining. I could listen to her stories all day :D

  10. Jeez you have a whole super team stranded with you. Merri and pippin for sure, cause we definitely need good food

    1. LOL yup XD Yeah, I have a feeling they would find the best stuff, probably mushrooms but luckily, I like those too haha!

  11. This is a fun idea! I would definitely have Captain Jack and Katniss, guaranteed. I'd give money to see how all these guys and gals get together and interact with each other. I feel like Jack would drive most of them insane xD

    1. SAME HERE^^ Just watching them all interact would be GOLD! I think you're right about Jack but it'd be hilarious to watch all the same XD Thank you Alise!

  12. Ahh, I love this new feature, Micheline! I might do it myself in the future. :) And if I were stranded on a deserted island, I'd definitely need Hermione's books. ;) Or maybe Annabeth Chase from the Percy Jackson series! And Katniss, too! I would probably die without anyone who has any sort of survival skill. xD

    1. Eeeep, I hope you will join up Aimee :D Thank you^^ Hermione and Katniss were a must for me, even though I have a feeling that they'll be choices I go to again and again regardless of the theme! Annabeth is a good one too, she'd definitely come in handy in keeping you alive LOL XD

  13. omg brilliant feature!! Every once in a while I do pose such What if? questions to myself and integrate all my favourite worlds and characters into one... That's why this is perfection. That, and you chose the perfect Dream Team for being stranded on an island with!

    1. Thanks lady!! I'd had the idea rolling around in my head for months, I always tended to dream up the best team-ups and thought that maybe other people would have fun with that sort of thing too XD
