Fandom Mashup #123

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 :)


Hey everyone!  I wish you all a good start to the last week in August! Whaaa?!  Where did the time go!  Well we might as well finish of August with a bang as as Slyther In to September...get it?! #lamejokeislame

"Slytherin will help you on your way to greatness" - Choose 5 characters from different fandoms that you think would do well in Slytherin. 

Celaena Sardothien

Celaena at the start of her story in ToG strikes me very much as a Slytherin.  She's cunning af and she's ambitious!  She also takes care of her loved ones as best she can which makes her an ideal candidate for the House.


Dean Winchester

Now it can be said that both Winchester brothers are brave and therefore Gryffindors but I've always pegged Dean as a Slytherin.  He's a crafty bastard and he would do anything, anything to protect his family -especially Sam.


Mycroft Holmes

Mycroft could easily be a Ravenclaw but I don't see him fitting in there as well as his younger brother Sherlock.  And speaking of his brother, Mycroft would move heaven and earth for Sherlock so he would fit in nicely in Slytherin. He's also as cunning as they come and definitely ambitious - consider his job!


The Master

Again, I could see the Master in Ravenclaw of course but he's a crafty Timelord (aren't they all?!) It's more than that though: he's scheming and devious and sly. And the ambition he has to show to go after the Doctor time and time again? To me that makes him a perfect fit for the Slytherin House.

Adam Parrish

Adam Parrish (who by the way looks nothing like this in my head^^) was sorted by author Maggie Stiefvater herself into Slytherin House.  He's certainly ambitious enough to fit the bill.  Also? As PYNCH he and Ronan make up a Slytherin/Gryffindor romance and that's just brilliant!

What characters from other fandoms would YOU sort into Slytherin?


PS: This is the last topic listed for my Fandom Mashup feature and with work, buying a house, moving, buying a car...etc. I haven't been blog-planning properly so I'm going to put the feature on hold for a bit. Honestly, I'm still in a reading slump but I'm hoping Fall will help me start reading again and get this blog back to what it used to be. Thank you for understanding ♥

Hi everyone and happy Potter Thursday!  I hope you're all well and ready to dive right into the Wizarding World with me?  Ok! Let's go  :

Would you have joined the Slug Club?


Hmmm, I guess that should read: Would you have been asked to join the Slug Club?  But anyway. I think the only way I would have been asked to join is if I had been the same geek at Hogwarts that I am in real life. And the answer to that is that I would be even more of a geek. Presumably, I'd be Muggle Born and being told I'm magic would have made me want to DEVOUR all the magical knowledge just like Hermione. So yeah, maybe I would have been clever enough at Hogwarts to warrant an invite from the old Slug himself!


As to if I would have joined...well Harry Potter joined, so I'm in!  Call me Colin Creevy because I would be following The Boy Who Lived like a shadow.  I picture the Slug Club as just another chance to bask in his glory LOL!

Do you think you would have been worthy of a Slug Club invitation?

Hi everyone and happy Monday -wait - is that an oxymoron for most of you? I'm off Mondays because I work Saturdays but anyway: I hope this Monday will be pain free for you all!  Anyone watching the Eclipse where you're at?  It's visible here but I don't have any viewing glasses...might see if I can craft some up lol.  Anyways, speaking of Intergalactic things:

Last week's Intergalactic Villains have finally reached us and the Earth needs DEFENDING. Which heroes are leading the pack to save Humanity?

The Doctor

These villains are coming FROM space to attack Earth...so naturally My Doctor makes the top of this list!  I feel safer just looking at that face. ♥.♥

Thor

THOR!  Look at him, all ready to go with a fierce sneer and his hammer aloft!  Those villains don't stand a chance!


Doctor Strange

Doctor Strange is no...stranger to dealing with other-worldly forces threatening Earth. I have complete faith in him to put our collection of bad guys in their place.


Wonder Woman

Two Marvel Heros from this DC-fan. I gotta represent! Cue Wonder Woman.  She's better suited for this particular task than my perennial favorite Batman and we all know she's up to the task.


Spock

Last but not least: Spock. His cool intellect should mesh perfectly with The Doctor and both of them are just as brave as the rest of the team here...we got this!

Which heroes would you team up to fight our Intergalactic Villains?

Happy...Saturday all! How is everyone's week going so far?  I've had a busy week in real life and work was exceptionally busy so I'm ready to step back into the Wizarding World (albeit a few days late), how about you?  I've got Founder Fever recently it seems:

Favorite Hogwarts Founder. Or whichever one fascinates you the most.



As I mentioned in last week's post, I'm fascinated by the Founders of Hogwarts. All of them.  I feel like history maybe exaggerated some of their character traits and I'd like to see the humans behind the Houses.  Or you know, maybe history didn't over-emphasize anything...either way, I'd love to find out all about each one of the Founders.  We have certainly learned more about Godric Gryffindor than any of the others. I'd follow that closely by Salazar Slytherin so if pressed, I'd say I want to learn more about the women Founders of Hogwarts because they have more mystery about them.  I think Rowena Ravenclaw seems brilliant of course but as a GryffinPuff, I think Helga Hufflepuff would be my top choice! I adore how inclusively she saw the Wizarding World, how she wanted all the Magical children to be welcome so long as they worked hard and wanted to learn ♥

Which one of the Hogwarts Founders are you more interested in?

Hi and happy Monday everyone.  It seems like at least for the Summer, it's easier for me to post my FM posts on Monday so we'll try it this way for a bit and see how it goes:

An evil Galactic Empire is seeking to rule all the Galaxies (sound familiar?) and has lined up our Galaxy - and Earth - as it's next target. Which villains are running this diabolical scheme?

Chancellor Palpatine

Obviously right? This topic just reeks of Chancellor Palpatine!  Odds are he's the mastermind behind this entire scheme!


The Master

Speaking of Mastermind...The Master would be all over this like a bad joke. Or a good joke cause you have to admit The Master is pretty funny XD


Moriarty

Moriarty would fit right in here too, he's all about schemes and plots so it'd be nothing for him to take his ideals on a Galactic level!

Lucifer

Lucifer teaming up with The Master in Moriarty would be EPIC for sure!  I just wonder how they'd all get along?

Saruman

Saruman would be all up in this too!  Of course he'd pretend he wouldn't be but if the past in any indication, he's lying his white beard off.

Who do you think would take part in an evil, Galactic takeover?

Happy Thursday all! I hope that you're all having a nice week so far?  I can't believe that it's already the 2nd week of August but that's another thing altogether. Soon we'll be packing up for our return to Hogwarts ;)  but in the meantime:

If you could go back in time through the series, at what point would you go to first?


Oh gosh! So many possibilities! Obviously, I want to track through Harry Potter's life from start to finish!  And see whatever happens to Dumbledore, Voldemort, The Marauders and Lily Evans and all of the people who shaped Harry in some way but I think that first of all, I'd track back to the Founders of Hogwarts. I'd love to get to know them and see how their personalities shaped their own Houses and the School as a whole!  So I'd definitely start there and work my way forwards in time.


To meet the 4 Founders of Hogwarts and watch them interact with each other and witness the creation of the best Wizarding School ever would be a dream come true!  

What point would you time-travel to in the Wizarding World's history?

Hi everyone!  It looks like Sunday posting isn't quite working for me at the moment.  I ended up going river-tubing again last Sunday and what with the long weekend here in Canada, well...you know the rest. I'm considering putting these posts up another day of the week but for the time being:

A night a magical fireworks is on the agenda tonight!  Which characters do you think would get a bigger kick out of tagging along?

Fred and George

We can't have 'magical fireworks' without Fred and George now can we? Their magical fireworks were quite memorable so I think they'd have fun plotting out more!

Sabriel

As the Abhorsen (a good Necromancer), Sabriel is all about nighttime activities but I think that a nice fireworks display would make for a nice change for her...you know, instead of chasing the undead.


The Doctor

The Doctor is all about whimsy and magical things so I'd love to see him enjoying a good fireworks show! I'm sure he's seen some otherworldly ones but with our team here, there should be an impressive display :)


Gandalf

Gandalf is a godfather of magical fireworks so obviously his name is written all over this topic! He'll make sure we get a light show to be remembered...so long as no mischievous hobbits interfere LOL!


Blue Sargent

And Blue just strikes me as someone who would really appreciate a good firework display. She'd just set herself up comfortably, chill and enjoy!  She's more than welcome to bring her Raven Boys with her of course ;)

Which character do you think would enjoy some fireworks?

Hi everyone!  Happy Thursday! Well July certainly flew by didn't it? I hope everyone who participated in Harry Potter Month enjoyed themselves! I was far from organized compared to previous years but I still had so much fun posting and commenting on everyone's posts :D  Next year should be back to normal on my end - I hope! So here's our topic this week:

If you could change one thing from book 6, what would it be?


Oh this is a tough one! Half Blood Prince is one of my favorite books in the series.  My first thought was to say THAT death at the end...but I understand why it needed to happen so I've made my peace with it. Kind of. More or less. Ok not really! Not at all.  Yes, it needed to happen but it doesn't mean I have to be ok with it, right?  Especially when you consider that this happened right before:

*Don't mind me, I'll just be in a corner, drowning in tears and feels*

So I guess I wouldn't truly change it if I could...but I still wish it didn't have to happen. Does that make sense?


What would you change it HBP?
