5 Fandom Friday: My Ideal Apocalypse Dream Team

I’m back with another 5 Fandom Friday! Let’s see if I can actually keep up and do each and every single prompt for October. Today’s theme is to share 5 people I’d love to have by my side during the apocalypse. I thought this was going to be a tricky list to come up with, but it was actually quite easy!

The Doctor from Doctor Who

I’d want the Doctor by my side because he always manages to get out of sticky situations, so the apocalypse should be no big deal to him. And he can always relocate me and the rest of our team elsewhere in time and space via the TARDIS. Hooray for loopholes!

Ron Swanson from Parks & Recreation

Ron Swanson knows how to survive out in the wilderness, so when we land on another planet or different time to get away from the end of the world he’ll be able to hunt for food and figure out how to create a shelter in case when the Doctor leaves us (because the Doctor is unpredictable and will come and go at the drop of a hat).

Captain America

Let’s be honest, Mama needs some eye candy! And I would also want someone with a sunnier disposition than the Doctor and Ron Swanson that can also hold their own.

✿ Hermione Granger from the Harry Potter series

Hermione is the brightest witch around, and you know Harry and Ron would totes be dead if she wasn’t there to help them out. In the event of an apocalypse, I’m more than sure Hermione would know what to do and be completely prepared for anything.

Buffy Summers from Buffy the Vampire Slayer

I mean… she’s the mother flippin’ vampire slayer. She can do anything, including saving all of our asses from an apocalypse. I would be incredibly stupid to not want her by my side!

Who would you want by your side if the end of the world was nigh? Let me know in the comments!

  • Awesome list! Ron Swanson would be GREAT to have on your team. Plus, chances are he’s already got some sort of a bomb shelter on his property, so you’re totally sorted.

  • B

    Ron Swanson is perfect!

  • Ashlee @ Oh Sweet Samsara

    I didn’t think of Ron Swanson or Hermione, but they’re perfect choices!

  • I thought about choosing The Doctor too! Also, I would want Ron Swanson just so I could hang out with him because he’s awesome. I’m sure Buffy could handle it all on her own!

  • Rom Swanson ohmygod. That’s an amazing choice!

  • Danielle @ From Girlie to Nerdy

    Buffy made my list as well. Ron Swanson would totally be a great apocalypse team member – he’s quite honestly the best 🙂

  • YES Cap, he’s always on all my lists lol xoxo

  • Hermione & Rob Swanson, yes!!

  • RON SWANSON, YES! Great pick, I don’t know how I didn’t think of him! Cap almost made my list too, I really should have given him a bonus slot. Great picks!

  • Haha, Ron Swanson is a great pick, he’s so resourceful. Hermoine is perfect too – having magic on your side can only be a bonus!

  • Dee

    Cap. Was on my list and a major reason was for the eye candy.

  • gamerwife

    Ron. Fucking. Swanson.

  • Holy crud! You have totally nailed it with this list. I think that’s the perfect apocalypse-busting team right there.

  • I would love Ron to be on my team as well. Always ready for wilderness adventures.

  • Can I join your team? It sounds like it’d be the absolute best. And Ron xD

  • Awwww Captain America, Hermione and Buffy. I wonder what would happen if we had Cap and Stark 3:) (I knooooow, bad girl here) 😉

  • Two of mine included Sebastian Michaelis (#1) and Captain Jack (Sparrow). Jen has MacGyver and Daryl Dixon, and of course we listed more. ♥ I SO thought of including the Doctor, but he can’t really fight, and I thought if we could just pile into the TARDIS and leave, that’d be a bit too easy. XD

  • Okay I love everyone on your list. Kudos to the eye candy of the Capt’
