Fandom Mashups is a great 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: It’s Valentine’s Day! Who are your favorite Fandom Couples?
Oh wow, who doesn’t love a good fandom couple, canon or (most often in my case) fanon? I’ve tried to resist just overloading the list with all my favourite Harry Potter ships (all fanon and worthy of a post of their own!), so I’ve left HP off completely so it doesn’t take over! Also, despite my love of Game of Thrones you might notice there’s no mention of it here, again because my favourite ships deserve a post of their own (and unlike my HP ships, they’re a little less popular and a little more controversial!). So now that we’ve explained those obvious omissions, on to the list…
1. FitzSimmons (Agents of SHIELD)
Oh FitzSimmons <3 Admittedly, most of my fondness for this probably just comes from my love of Fitz and wanting him to be happy. He’s adorable but I should have known better than to get my heart set on a ship Joss Whedon has his hands on – my love for this ship frequently alternates between being heart-warming and heart-wrenching.
2. Spike & Buffy (Buffy)
My original favourite fandom couple! Spike is my favourite Buffy character by far and although the Buffy/Angel relationship grew on me with later rewatches, I’m very firmly a Spuffy fan instead.
3. Adam & Ronan (The Raven Boys)
I completely blame Micheline for this one (but I love her anyways). Ronan and Adam are one of my favourite recent ship discoveries, and if only one couple in the series got their happy ending I’d want it to be this one.
4. Emma Swan & Captain Hook (Once Upon a Time)
Honestly, we haven’t been enjoying Once Upon a Time as much recently, but I do love Emma & Hook together and they’re one of the main reasons I can’t stop watching the show.
5. Clara & The Eleventh Doctor (Doctor Who)
It’s not news to any of you that Eleven was my favourite doctor, and I also ADORE Clara – I think she’s great! I was a Clara/Eleven fan from pretty early on and by Matt Smith’s final appearance I was completely and utterly invested (though my other half is a Donna fan I think!).
