Fandom Mashup #67

Fandom Mashups
Fandom Mashups is an original feature here at Lunar Rainbows Reviews.  Every week, I propose a unique fictional scenario and then we build our own personal dream team of five fictional characters from five different fandoms to complete the task!  Anyone is welcome to join up - all I ask is that you link back to me somewhere in your post :)

Hello all and happy Sunday! It's a really nice late Summer day around here so I'm heading off to go river-tubing one last time today...although I might be delayed...:


You've stumbled onto THE ONE RING (WHAT THE HELL FRODO?! You had ONE job!) and now you need to take it to Mount Doom to destroy it. Who do you chose as your own Fellowship of the Ring?

Samwise

#1 pick, 100% without a doubt. 'Frodo wouldn't have made it far without Sam' and if Frodo fudged this job, I'm picking Sam as my travelling companion for sure! Samwise is easily the best best-friend of all time AND he gets the job DONE.

Kaladin Stormblessed

The epic high-fantasy world that Kaladin calls home makes me think that he'd feel right at home in Middle-Earth and on an epic quest no less. Kaladin is a BAMF so he'd make sure our task is a success! Plus Kaladin isn't looking for riches or personal gain so he can be trusted.

Aelin

I chose Aelin here solely based on her ability to keep our questers safe.  Aelin could fight off Orcs, Dark Wizards, Gollum and could likely take care of Sauron himself if given the chance. Likewise, Aelin isn't in it to gain riches or more power so the ring would be safe until we reach Mt Doom.

Harry Potter

Homeboy hunted down SEVEN Horcruxes so I feel confident he could handle ONE. He also never gave in to the dark side despite having a front row seat into Voldemort's mind. You can't say any better than that. Oh and if there's ANY character who is 100% not in it for personal gain, it's Harry Potter.

Batman

Batman's moral code would guarantee that he'd never fall for the ring's power. He's also brilliant so he'd map us out the best routes to take to get to Mount Doom in a flash. Travelling at night would be infinitely safer with him around  - and honestly: I just want to see him and Aelin kick ass.

  1. I absolutely LOVE the idea of Aelin and Batman kicking ass together! And perfectly said about Harry- finding the horcruxes was an incredibly daunting task, and he nailed it. I'd trust him with any quest! :D

    1. Hahaha ME TOO! Thank you^^ I feel like THE one ring is basically a Horcrux anyway so if Harry can hunt down 7, he can destroy ONE :D

  3. I'm a little late to the party but I had to do this prompt! Such a great idea!

    I love your choices! I can only imagine the conversations that would occur between Sam and Batman along the journey, haha.

  4. I adore this mashup! I think it's hilarious Frodo didn't make the cut; mostly because I agree with it. ^_^ Much as I love Frodo, he didn't get the job done in the end.

    1. LOL! He never was my favorite hobbit - I always loved Sam and Bilbo a lot more (not to mention Merry and Pippin) I do love Frodo too, but I get frustrated with him by the end...

  5. Such great picks! Samwise...he is just the best friend ever isn't he. Of course Harry could also get it done. He never let the darkness get control over him. I think I would have gone with Flash for sure due to getting it done quickly :D
