Fandom Mashups

As an avid fangirl, my blog is the perfect place to talk fandoms, since most of my fandoms are book-centric.  That being said, I am a fangirl of many other things, such as television shows and movies.  In an attempt to bring all my fandoms together, I've come up with a unique feature here at Lunar Rainbows ReviewsFandom Mashup Posts.

The idea here is that every week, I propose a unique fictional scenario and then build a personal dream team of 5 fictional characters from 5 different fandoms to help tackle each scenario!  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 :)

Since I've been asked, here is a list of previous and upcoming topics so that those who want to participate can get their posts done in advance:
