It’s time for another 5 Fandom Friday! This time around we’re having tea with some of our faves. I could easily list hundreds of characters I’d want to sip (or spill) the tea with but no one has time for that.
1. Harley Quinn
I’d love to ask her about fashion, fighting skills, how to take care of a hyena. I’d love to pick her brain about some of the other characters that live in Gotham. I’d wonder if she’d be open to reflecting on her relationship with Joker and if she regrets falling for him. Her life would be very different but our struggles and mistakes are part of who we are today. I have a feeling she’d enjoy a little vodka mixed in with her tea. Or maybe grabbing a Twisted Tea instead of your typical hot cup.
2. Clint Barton
There are numerous versions of this character but I think I’d focus on maybe the MCU version. While I hate the fact he was given a family (I think it was dumb and pointless), I’d ask how he met his wife. How did he keep his family safe and a secret for that long. Are the kids home schooled? How do they explain what he does and all the weirdness that happens in the world. Do they know that dad goes off to fight aliens? Laura and Natasha seem like friends now, but were the always that close? Basically, I’d pay a game of 20 Questions with him.
3. Owen Grady
I need to know how he was able to get Blue and the squad to accept him! Sure, we saw a little tiny but in Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom with the video footage of him training Blue. But what about all the time between when they were born and to where they are now? I find it hard to believe he never lost a finger! But it would be hilarious if we found out he lost a toe.
4. Sally from Nightmare Before Christmas
Honestly, I think she just needs a friend to listen to her sometimes. I want to be that friend. We all know Jack didn’t listen when she tried to warn him that everything was a bad idea. I think she just needs a Girl Day where we have some tea, maybe some little sandwiches and just relax. Plus I beat she has a ton of tea about Dr. Finkelstein. You know that dude was a freak!
5. Eddie from Hawaii 5-0
Yes, Eddie is a dog. But he’s a very well trained dog and I just want to take him for walks. And then to the dog park. Maybe play some fetch. Take him for a swim. Snuggle on the couch! Maybe a little pampering too, a nice bath! Maybe trim his nails a little bit.
I tried to really mix it up this time. I could have easily picked 5 characters from the same movies or films. That might be an interesting angle! What cast would you like to share a beer or drink with?
