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: You’ve been approached to travel into space in search of new worlds and civilizations and you get to pick a team to take with you: who do you take?
1. Rocket & Groot
I know this is sort of cheating, but having just one would be wrong. Rocket would undoubtedly cause chaos, but he’d also just be huge fun so he’s definitely on my team!
2. Mark Watney
Mark’s genuinely funny, and resourceful. If something went wrong, I’d want him there!
3. The Eleventh Doctor
Going in to space without The Doctor seems foolish, and although I like Ten, Eleven is definitely my favourite.
4. Luna Lovegood
I feel like having a witch could only be a good thing – cramped in a small space, I imagine a silencing charm or two would be very appreciated, plus she could make light work of repairs. I picked Luna because I think she’d be the easiest to live with (who knows how long we’ll be in space for), and because she doesn’t look threatening – being attacked on sight isn’t really the aim.
I think he’s sort of a must! Mark’s smart, but he’s not ideal to lead, and I’d definitely rather give Spock control. Plus, when the Doctor had too much energy he could use it on trying to get a rise out of Spock which would save everyone else some grief…
I’m reasonably happy with my team, though I’d have liked to squeeze a [medical] doctor in too. I’m just going to believe that Luna’s training would involve lots of healing so she can be our first aid person 😉
