5 Fandom Friday: 5 Apocalypse Buddies

Hey Epic Geeks,

I’m bringing back our beloved 5 Fandom Friday. The Nerdie Girlie and Super Space Chick have taken a break for a while. In the mean while, I wanted to keep it alive and have decided to revive it in my own blog. I invited other to do so as well by taking 2014 and 2015 prompts. Just take which ever prompt you prefer or haven’t done. They are below. You can find all previous (and future) prompts on the original 5 Fandom Friday post.

Alright, and now for my dream team, for the apocalypse that is.

First off, in honor of Once Upon A Time‘s newest seasons being on Netflix … Red.


I mean. Who doesn’t want someone who can track…and she worked at Granny’s so she has to know some of those delicious recipes. Right? I think she’d be a great ally in the time of an apocalypse.

Buffyverse is such a major portion of my life and Willow is a huge inspiration.


Willow is a witch so that is useful but she’s also a huge book nerd and knows her way with research so hello. But really, she knows how to keep everyone grounded and she’s a rock. And hell, her and my number five will get along great. 😉

I’m kind of cheating on this one considering she died in the first book … but my next choice is Rue from Hunger Games.


Rue knows what berries/plants are edible. She’s sweet, small, and quick. Even though she’s a child, she’s the fresh face that could easily keep everyone pushing forward, just like she kept Katniss pushing forward. She is the hope that everyone needs to survive.

My last pick is from the Supernatural fandom… but it’s not the Winchesters. I’m sorry boys… but I don’t need you killing my team. The obvious choice is Charlie, though.

She has such an amazing moral code as we’ve seen in her good vs. evil and then hacking skills, come on. She’s an asset and she’s Charlie. Everyone needs a Charlie.


My final pick I think is my most important. Jemma Simmons from Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.


First, she could easily help patch anyone up from the basic bruises to broken bones … and then … if any one can cure the disease or save mankind, it’s Jemma.

My intention wasn’t to make an all female team but it was definitely to make the best team possible with amazing characters with great assets that keeps us all alive. I think they would all play off of each other and make sure we do our best to stay safe. And hey, who doesn’t want to see what our two red headed lesbians think of each other, even if they were just the best nerdy buds ever?

Who is your ultimate zombie apocalypse team? Why? Make sure to tell me in the comments below.


Keep calm and stay epic,
