Hooray it’s Friday! My husband was gone for most of this week on work travel, so I’m glad we’ll all be together for the weekend. I’m anticipating a pretty low key Saturday and Sunday which I’m looking forward to.
So it’s 5 Fandom Friday time – and while I’m pretty sure I wouldn’t make it very long during an apocalypse, these are the 5 people I’d want on my side.
Oh, Daryl. You’re so not my usual type, and yet, I love you. There’s just something about him and that crossbow. Regardless of our (obvious) romantical chemistry, he’s absolutely someone I’d want on my side. He knows his way out in the wild and can handle weaponry. Hey (sexy apocalypse husband) – what’s for dinner? Squirrel. Raw.
Again, with the bow and arrow and bad-assery in nature. She’s resourceful, knows how to team up with the right people, and doesn’t throw out any unnecessary BS. Not to mention she seems like she’d stick with you until the end and remains loyal to those who are respectful and loyal to her.
I’d prefer Serenity River to Firefly River as she was Just. So. Moody. However, she’s an amazing fighter both in hand-to-hand combat and with a gun. Not to mention she can kill you with her brain. You can also tell she has a kind soul and would probably be willing to share some food during hard times.
He shoots first, is easy on the eyes, and if he can survive an intergalactic war or two, he can survive the apocalypse. I feel like every team needs a Han.
At this point, she’s like an apocalypse pro, not to mention she’s a great fighter, witty, and she’s fun and pretty down to Earth. I think she would end up being my apocalypse BFF (assuming I didn’t have my IRL apocalypse-ready BFF – see below). I would need someone that I could relax around and be myself with at the end of the day, not to mention someone to chat with, and I think she fits the mark.
Honorable, real-life person mention goes to my BFF, Katrina. She can handle weaponry, could (probably) fight off wild animals, and she pretty much has apocalypse life all planned out in her head. We even did a solo hike in the snow on a mountain once and she had laid out our plan if a bear or giant cat was to attack because she knows my woodsy skills are lacking. Not to mention having someone that really knows you makes the apocalypse a little bit better (relatively).
Who would you want on your apocalypse team?
