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
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.
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' 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
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 :)
