Ultimate Fighting Team (collab)

       Rigby64: Blue

                      Today, Lyndsey and I will be answering the ultimate question. A questions that every person has asked themselves, (or will ask after reading this blog post). Lyndsey and I will be answering:
"If you could have an ultimate fighting team conducted of two fictional characters (and yourself) who would be your team mates? And why."
These teams are created by each of us, conducting only ourselves, and two fictional characters from any film/ book/ or any other geek source. I will start off, and then we shall switch off, reviewing one character from our team at a time.

My mind could easily blow up if I over think this too much. Having an ultimate fighting team made up of literally any two characters (and yourself) is a huge and difficult decision. Through much deliberation, I have come to the conclusion of these two characters. First, is Legolas from the Lord of The Rings trilogy and Hobbit films.

With his accuracy in archery and his quick wit with defense, he would make an awesome team mate in combat. As an elf, his height would be handy for reaching things (cause I am short), and, his patience with others would be beneficial because with me, he'll need patience. His diverse language would be awesome to learn, and I think Legolas could play as a sort of leader to me; teaching me the Elvish language, archery, and basically all the necessities of being an elf. (And bonus points, he's beautiful). So overall, I think Legolas would definitely be my right hand man during combat, making him my first of two fictional characters for my ultimate fighting team.


Though I do adore Legolas, without doubt my first choice would be Vin. As the main protagonist in the epic Trilogy, Mistborn, by Brandon Sanderson, Vin is a force to be reckoned with. I think it's safe to say that with her at my side, the world would collapse before us. Aside from her capabilities as a Mistborn, Vin possesses a steely strength that is essential in any fight. She is human; yet with the abilities one might attach to a god. Vin is both vulnerable, and yet without weakness. Her only real foe is herself. 
Though I'm due for another re-read of Misborn, the most important thing from my recollection of Vin, is that she is powerful not just in body, but in heart. Her passion, wit, intellect, and consuming desire to protect those she cares for, pretty much make her the most epic heroine ever. I can't emphasize her positive attributes enough!

 Now I knew for this final choice, my last member of my team had to be smart.
With Legolas having the skills as a true archer and a big piece of the fighting part of my team, I had to pick someone who was either rich, smart, or quick witted. This was difficult and I leaned toward many heroes such as, Batman, Severus Snape, and Indiana Jones. But, I came to the conclusion of the mastermind himself, Loki Laufeyson.

I felt sort of bad picking him since he's one of my constant go-to characters, but the more I thought about him and all his positive factors he contains, the more I wanted him for my team. Looking back at his previous Avenger encounters, he was able to manipulate and trick all of them. Not only that, but he was able to live through Captain America's shield blast, Iron Man's shots, Hulk's beating, and literally every fall and explosion. He also is a master of illusions, he's the son of a frost giant, raised by Asguardians, and he's the god of mischief. Though his fighting skills are not as quick and as powerful as Legolas's, I knew Loki could uphold the brains of my team.

For my final choice, I've decided upon Vlad, from Dracula untold. Not only is he drop dead beautiful, but he doesn't score too bad in the 'I can crush whole villages in my sleep' area either. From the moment I saw the movie I knew Vlad would go down in my mental book as one of my favorite characters. It's for this reason, as well as many others, that he is my immediate go to for this challenge. Being a vampire, he is on a level akin to Vin. He is one of the few people I feel would actually compliment her skills, rather than be intimidated by them.  Also, his desire to do what is right so great that he is willing to compromise his own comforts in order to fulfill it.

We hope you have enjoyed this collaboration, and look forward to seeing you in our next post!

May the Fourth be with you..

       A long time ago in a city not so far away, came a man with a money making, movie charting, history making, fan raging, idea. George Lucas, both the genius and the man who allowed Jar Jar Binks, brought to us..

                   For so many of us, Star Wars has defined our childhood, and the start of our love for all things Sci-Fi. And some genius out there has invented a day where we can all celebrate these great stories and films together! But what does one do on May the Fourth? Re-watch all the films? Dress up and go to some Star Wars convention? Today, I will be helping my fellow Star Wars fans on how to celebrate Star Wars Day!

                      One of the easiest ways to celebrate anything is through food. Making fun eatables can really get a celebration going, and when you've got a theme, the ideas are endless. So, for you I've collected many different and easy recipes to get your party started!
*Blue Milk*
Inspired by the blue milk as shown in Luke Skywalker’s Uncle Owen and Aunt Beru home in Tatooine, I have found the easiest and sweetest recipe for making it.
Now the texture of it in the film makes it look as though it is thick, or at least thicker than normal milk. So I decided to turn drink into a milkshake rather than just milk.
Easy Ingredients:

  • 4 cups quality vanilla ice cream
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 8 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 cups milk, less for thicker milkshakes
  •  A few drops of blue food coloring
    (If you are wanting more recipes, click here!) 
    Now that you have snacks, your celebration is going to be amazing, but,
    there are still a lot more little things you can do to really make your get-together amazing.
    I'm hoping that whoever you invite is a huge fan like you,  and if so, you'll need the proper music to celebrate. I have found several playlists on Youtube. Such as this one:


    Now if you are not much of a party person, do not worry! For their is much you can
    do to celebrate today!
    One example is heading online and buying something completely amazing and Star Wars related.
    Thus, furthering your collection and dedication to the Star Wars Universe.

    Now if you are not rich (like myself) that may be hard to go smothering yourself
    with Star Wars treasures. So, to substitute this, grab a bean bag chair, sit on down and let the films begin. Nothing beats the simpleness of simply watching or rewatching these films, though if you have watched them before, I give you permission to skip those unnecessary parts (*cough* Jar Jar *cough*)
    Another fun thing you/ and your friends can do is play the online Star Wars games.
    One of my favorites being The Old Republic. And if online gaming isn't for you, there are several games of Star Wars to choose from! From the Nintendo Systems to the Xbox. From Lego to the old fashion arcade versions. The options are endless!
    As for me this year, I'm pretty basic. Movies, snacks, and this year I will be making Star Wars themed items for a prom I will be attending. My friend will be receiving a Millennium Falcon corsage that I have made for her (we promised we'd take each other to prom since 1st grade) and as for myself, I will have an R2D2 pearl necklace.

    (The theme was under the stars.... and I took advantage of it.)
    So I hope this helps you out. I know it was a bit blunt, but I couldn't help but write about
    this super fun day! I hope you all enjoy it, and mark your calanders for these dates:
    *September 4th / the day the new Star Wars: The Force Awakens lego sets come out*
    *December 18 / the day the new Star Wars film comes out*
