5 Fandom Friday: November 21st, 2014
It's 5 Fandom Friday time!
This week's theme is: Characters I would invite to my Thanksgiving Feast!
I'm really struggling to come up with a list of five characters I would want to invite over to my house. I would want a somewhat-balanced group of men and women, who would provide stimulating conversation, be up for drinks and board games after dinner, and would get along pretty well. No one who is too far into the lawful-good range that they would be a judgey goody-goody killjoy all night. No one who is so chaotic evil that they would just make the evening unpleasant for everyone else.
Anyway, here's the list. It's pretty obvious which of my favorite books/movies/tv shows they come from, and they are all fan favorites, so I don't think I need to go into much detail about why I love these characters.
1. Indiana Jones
2. Han Solo
3. Princess Leia
4. The Tenth Doctor
5. Captain Marvel
All of these characters would have great stories to swap, and have similar enough personalities that I think they could get along for an evening, but are diverse enough that the conversation would stay interesting. And who knows, maybe we'd abandon dinner in favor of having an adventure together.
I'm not going to visit family for the holiday. While I would love to see my Grandma, it's a 12-hour round trip in the car and I had my fill of my extended family back during my sister's wedding. I think The Boyfriend and I are just going to chill and play video games all weekend.
However you're spending it, I want to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving!
Safe travels, enjoy your family or whoever you're going to spend the holiday with, and good luck if you're braving the crowds for Black Friday!
