Fandom Mashups is a great new feature hosted by Micheline. Every week, a unique fictional scenario is proposed, and everyone then builds their personal dream team of five fictional characters from five different fandoms to complete the task! Anyone is welcome to join in, just make sure to link back to Lunar Rainbows.
This week: The most evil dark lord/lady of all time has come into power with plots for world-domination. Who do you take with you into battle?
1. Tywin Lannister (A Song of Ice and Fire)
If I’m going into battle, I want a strategist on my side, and I feel like Tywin Lannister would be brilliant. He’s two steps ahead, ruthless and calculating – those are features I want in my team!
2. Manon Blackbeak [& Abraxos] (Throne of Glass)
Manon is absolutely kick-ass, so I definitely want her on my side. Her & Abraxos could scout ahead, get a different point of view on things and generally intimidate people. They could attack from the air, which would give them a definite advantage.
Let’s be honest, what army wouldn’t be improved by the presence of Thor?! He can fight both up close and also at a distance thanks to his hammer, and with such a small team, I need versatility!
4. Belgarath (The Belgariad)
There is not enough magic in my army, and if we want any hope of sneaking up on the dark lord/lady, or of fighting off magic, we’re going to need some. Belgarath can turn into a wolf (or pretty much anything else), use magic on our enemies, and he’s got a quick mind and a head for strategy. Again with the versatility!
5. Katsa (Graceling)
I really couldn’t decide between Katsa (can kick-ass, kill enemies and survive until the bitter end) or Fire (can manipulate minds) but I eventually went for Katsa because I assume this dark lord/lady has magic of their own and might therefore be able to resist Fire’s abilities.
