Fandom Mashup #83

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 :)

Hi hi!  Happy Sunday!  I hope everyone is having a fabulous weekend so far? I'm excited today because we have a topic I've been looking forward to tackling for a long time now - I don't know why really, I just like that it combines fandoms on another level from what we usually do for Fandom Mashups - and that it allowed me to pick a total of 10 characters instead of 5 LOL (You know me!):

Fandom Duos - team up 5 duos from different fandoms who you think would work well together if their worlds collided. 

Harry Potter - Sabriel the Abhorsen

After I'd read The Old Kingdom books it struck me how Harry and Sabriel would make an fantastic team! Both are duty bound and forced to grow up much quicker than they ought to.  Similarly, both take their burden in stride and never hesitate to do the right thing. Harry and Sabriel are both brave beyond measure ♥ and two of my absolutely favorite heroes.

Aelin Galathynius - Kaladin Stormblessed

Aelin and Kaladin both come from a world very different than our own, with rich magic, social structures and plenty of scary beasts. They've both been made slaves and they've both suffered a great deal but they've overcome ALL of the obstacles and come out stronger on the other side.  You can't hold either of them down and that's why I love them both fiercely.

John Smith/The Doctor - Bruce Wayne/Batman

Something about The Doctor and Bruce Wayne/Batman working together really makes sense to me. I don't know if it's because they've both lost so much and are both inherently lonely with their fair share of darkness and demons. I have a feeling they'd understand each other and have a deep respect for one another's cause and moral code.

Sherlock Holmes - Bilbo Baggins

This combination just makes my geek heart want to explode.  Obviously since Bilbo and John Watson are played by the same actor this just fits, nevermind the fact that Sherlock was the voice of Smaug! I just want to see these two worlds collide like so many fans on Pinterest do. The results would be memorable, to say the least...

Katniss Everdeen - The Winchesters

Sam and Dean could definitely do with meeting a woman that resists being killed so well, it'd be something new for them for sure *cough*  Beyond that though, I genuinely think that both Sam and Dean would like Katniss because she always keeps fighting, just like them. Katniss for her part would appreciate Sam's struggle and Dean' humor - doesn't everyone?

Which characters from different fandoms would you like to see team up?
And what do you think about my duos?


  1. Ooh this is a good one. I should have done this one! I mighta picked Cap and Winter Soldier, or Winter Soldier and Black Widow (wouldn't that be a killr combo??). anyway I like yours- Batman and the Doctor? Nice. And Aelin and Kaladin- they just LOOK badass!

    Nice list!

  3. This is my first week doing Fandom Mashup and it was fun!

    We share some of the same characters in our lists (Katniss, the Winchester brothers and Sherlock), but I paired them up with other people. If you want to see with who, I linked my post in the linky thing :)

    Looking forward to next week!


  4. omg I would for sure pay to have some of these mashups brought to life in some artistic medium. Preferably with a good experienced writer involved, of course. I'm sure fan fiction abounds... Fun idea :D


I LOVE comments & do my best to return every one a.s.a.p. ♥
