Fandom Mashup: Fellowship of the Ring, Do-Over Edition

Fandom Mashups is a meme created and hosted by Micheline at Lunar Rainbows Reviews. Each week, she proposes a unique fictional scenario and invites bloggers to build their own personal dream team of five fictional characters from five different fandoms to complete the task. This week’s scenario was too good to pass up:

You’ve stumbled onto THE ONE RING (WHAT THE HELL FRODO?! You had ONE job!) and now you need to take it to Mount Doom to destroy it. Who do you chose as your own Fellowship of the Ring?

Tom Bombadil

Tom is my favorite character in Middle-Earth. I don’t think a more cheerful character exists! He manages to keep at bay the darkness of the undead who live right on his doorstep. Such a joyful fellow would be really important to have along to counteract the heavy, evil burden of the Ring. Gandalf himself said that the Ring has no power over Tom, so he’d be the perfect companion on such a quest! But I’m sure he’d take quite a bit of convincing to leave the boundaries of his land.


Prunella Gentleman

Prunella is a very powerful and very silly and light-hearted sorceress from Sorcerer to the Crown by Zen Cho. She’d help to keep everyone cheery and could be counted on to save the day through absurd heroics like summoning a cloud to whisk away confused orcs that made the mistake of getting in our way.

Hermione Granger

We’d need a loremaster to get us through the Door of Durin to the Mines of Moria. Prunella is a powerful sorceress but she is fairly illiterate and lacks both wisdom and book smarts. Hermione’s knowledge would be indispensable on this quest!



I’d definitely bring along faithful Lydia from Skyrim — because every epic journey needs a pack mule.


Major John Ogden

Ogden is an anti-hero from the graphic novel-cum-adventure story A Passage to Shambhala by John Baird, Kevin Costner, and Rick Ross. He leads a globe-spanning expedition to solve the mystery of the legendary city of Shambhala and that of his missing brother Arthur, who had disappeared after seeing bright lights in the Arctic while on his own Shambhala quest. Major Ogden leads a band of ne’er-do-wells, the violent and murderous Fifth Dragoons, who are unquestionably loyal to Ogden, and Ogden doesn’t seem to ever harbor a doubt that he can locate both Arthur and Shambhala. If anyone could engineer a way to kill a Nazgul, it would be Ogden!


I think they would make a pretty effective Fellowship! What do you think? Who would you choose to accompany you to Mount Doom?

  1. Awesome choices^^ I LOVE Tom Bombadill! He’s such a fascinating character and it’s brilliant that the ring has no power over him! And Hermione of course would be an asset to any team/quest/adventure because she’s brilliant ♥ Oh I still need to read Sorcerer to the Crown but I really want to meet Prunella 😀


    • Thank you! I love Bombadil, too! I always get the warm-and-fuzzies when I read his chapter in LOTR. And yeah, I definitely think Hermione could easily see everyone through alive on that adventure.

      Sorcerer to the Crown is such a fun read; I highly recommend it! Prunella is such an awesome and fearless protagonist. She’s one of those characters I wish were real. 🙂


  2. I love Tom bombadil, what a great character. And I love that picture of him and Goldberry and his house. Very nice! I agree he would be a great companion! And Skyrim looks so awesome- I’ve never played it but i want t one of these days. I’m really curious about A Passage to Shambhala too, I remember seeing some buzz when it came out and I think I read an interview w/ Costner and the other authors. Looks like such an imaginative story.

    • Skyrim and A Passage to Shambhala are both fantastic! I’ve lost so many hours in Skyrim but am nowhere near completing all the content, between all the side quests and choices available to you, all the directions you can take your character and the world. It’s wild! And Passage to Shambhala is really unique because it feels like an old-school adventure story but it combines all kinds of little details to create the story, from traditional storytelling to characters’ journals to handwritten letters to graphic novel strips. I’m really excited for the rest of the Explorers Guild series to get released!
