Have you ever wondered what would happen if Buffy met Edward and the Cullens? What about Adam Hauptman would think of Jacob Black and his shifters? Would Bella and Elena have a lot to say to each other? What would Lt. Eve Dallas make of Sgt. Murphy? If so, then you are going to love today’s game – I call it Character Assignations. What characters from what series would you like to see interact? I am going to share my top five. Feel free to chime in with your ideas!
Werewolves on the Prowl
I think Elena Michaels (Kelley Armstrong’s Women of the Otherworld) and Anna Cornick (Patricia Briggs’ Alpha and Omega) would have a lot to say. Though they are different kinds of werewolves, but I would love to be a fly on the wall for any conversation those two were-women would have. After all, they were both changed against their will, but Anna’s experience as the brutalized woman in a pack is one Elena has fought against with the Mutts for years. They can also share notes on loving the two very strong men in their lives.
Angels and Wizards
Remy Chandler from Tom Sniegoski’s Dancing on the Head of a Pin would be a riot hooked up with Jim Butcher’s Harry Dresden. The angel is a detective just like Harry, but they are both outsiders among their own and have an uncanny ability to trip right into trouble. The snark alone would be fun in conversation. Who knows, maybe Remy could take up one of the Knight of the Cross swords that Harry seems to be collecting and wouldn’t it be hilarious to see what Mouse is really thinking? Remy can talk to animals!
Vampire Cat and Werewolf Kitty
What would happen if Jeanine Frost’s half-vampire Cat hooked up with Carrie Vaughn’s werewolf named Kitty? The characters have a lot in common, including their gift for landing right in the middle of a bad situation. Vaughn’s Kitty and the Midnight Hour blew me away a few years ago and the series continues to follow the ‘day to day’ life of this werewolf on the run turned reluctant alpha. Frost’s Night Huntress series is wildly similar in appeal.
Singh “ing” Supernatural
Supernatural already has their own version of Raphael (and Castiel made him his bitch in a recent episode), so I would love to see what Nalini Singh’s Raphael would make of the Winchester boys and their angelic guardian Castiel. Would it be war? Would it be allies? Would it be punctuated with more punch lines than a bar fight? I don’t know, but I’d pay to see it.
Rachel Morgan (Kim Harrison) and Casey Schwartz (Dakota Cassidy) have a demon or two that they could discuss. Particularly since Rachel’s ex used her to dial up demons and get more control and Schwartz’s boyfriend oopsed and turned Casey into a little bit more than human. Like an earlier pairing, it’s the snark I’m interested in seeing – not to mention how do you strike up a conversation about demon marks? “Smokin’ demon mark! Can I buy you a drink?”
