Fandom Mashup #109

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 :)

Happy Sun-day everyone!  I hope you're enjoying the weekend, or long weekend for my fellow Canadians :)  I'm always off Mondays though so it doesn't change much for me LOL!  I'm still going to make the most of the sunshine though!  But before I do, we're talking introverts today:

Introvert Pride!  Who are your 5 favorite fictional introverts? 

Harry Potter

I think Harry is a classic introvert.  He could have had an entourage at Hogwarts but instead he selected a few select people to hang out with.  He always tries to do things alone, though that may be because solitude was thrust upon him at an early age...


Sherlock Holmes

Sherlock said so himself: he doesn't have any friends. Just one. He prefers to be (mostly) alone because he thinks everyone else is stupid.  Personally it seems like a lot of introverts can relate to that - and why Sherlock is such a lasting literary figure.


Castiel

My precious Castiel. He's so awkward, I just love him to bits!  Castiel's people skills have never been anything but rusty. And I hope he never changes because seeing him struggle through it makes me seem like an extrovert LOL!


Batman

Batman chose to be mostly friendless to protect the people he cares about...but I suppose being a billionaire orphan didn't make things easy for him. Nevertheless his 'lone wolf' persona is what drew me to him in my youth and through adulthood.


Feyre Archeron

Feyre lived a life of solitude before ACOTAR kicked off and even once things kicked off for her, she's kept her circle relatively small. Something that has persisted throughout the series thus far. It's one of the many reasons I like her. Well, that and Rhys.

Bonus:

Lisa Simpson

The most classic introvert I could think of - when it comes to my life anyway. Lisa might sometimes long for friends but more often than not, she's comfortable in her solitude and among her books. A girl after my own heart!


Squidward Tentacles

Squidward is my spirit animal when I'm feeling my most anti-social.  He just cracks me up because he says what most introverts are feeling. And the poor guy has to live next to and work with THE most extroverted sponge of all time XD



The Raven Boys + Blue

I know the Raven Crew has five members, but with the exception of Gansey maybe, none of them are particularly welcoming of other people. That's why it's so precious how Blue fits in with the boys so seamlessly. And why most of us wish we could be welcomed into the group too!

Sabriel and Lirael

Lirael might be the most classic introvert of the two leading ladies but Sabriel sets off on her journey totally alone so I think they both fit the bill. They're both fiercely independent and their circles are limited to a select few - with animals taking up nearly half the group LOL!

Thoughts? Who are your favorite fictional introverts?

  2. Ha- I am an introvert and I don't even know who I would pick. I am not completely aware of these things. Maybe Karou (I think she's an introvert), and Cress. But really, I think that's it.

    Great post,

  3. I love your list!

    Some of the characters you chose I had to leave out of my list, unfortunately. There're too many good introverted characters!

  4. I want to hang out with ALL of these fellow introverts! :D Lisa is most definitely my spirit Simpson, lol. I'd give ANYTHING to be part of the Raven Cycle crew, even listen to the Murder Squash song on endless repeat! XD
