Ya I know, it’s Monday. But trying to keep up on these 5 Fandom Friday posts is clearly pointless, so the posts are just gonna kind of happen, randomly and magically, like most good things. Having fandom characters you love and worship is part of the geeky package, and the characters you want to spend time are so much fun to fantasize about. So it’s time to go to the movies, or out for some drinks, or to the movies while smuggling in drinks, with my besties. Here are my top 5 fictional BFF’s from fandoms.
1. Luna Lovegood
Luna Lovegood by leelakin
Luna Lovegood is the quirky and slightly kooky blonde Ravenclaw from the Harry Potter series. Yeah, she’s fruity as a bat, but I love her. Luna is brutally genuine, honest, and perceptive – qualities that would be perfect in a best friend. She can’t be anyone but herself, and she makes no effort to try to hide her personality or weirdness from anyone. She think it strange anyone would do that, strange as she is. She just is, and that’s the way to be. Surrounded by someone like her, I’d be unafraid to be my weird self as well. We’d spend our time talking about the interesting things we’d read in the Quibble, practicing for our Potions finals, or tagging along on fun adventures with Harry, of course.
2. Betty Cooper
Betty Cooper is a teen girl from Riverdale, and an amazingly sweet character from the Archie Comics universe. True blue, and an all-American nice girl, Betty would be loyal to the end. She’s got a “Captain America” style charm about her. She’s kind, thoughtful, caring, and super nice. Plus, she loves having fun and getting out there! I think lots of people in the Riverdale universe would make fun and entertaining friends, but Betty has some seriously great friend qualities that are impossible to ignore. She would be there through thick and thin, I could just tell! We’d spend our time gossiping at Pop Tates over chocolate shakes and studying for Miss Grundy’s math tests after school. Who knows, maybe we’d even have a friendly fight over who’d be going out with Archie that night >.>
Noodle is the 13 year old guitar player from the Gorillaz, oh, and a secret government experimental combat soldier. And thanks to Ocean Bacon (the verbal command which put Noodle’s fighting rampage into a state of amnesia), we can be the best of friends, and play loads of video games all the time!! Besides having a front row seat to any Gorillaz’s concert, we’d eat sushi in Japan, beat up on Murdoc, and play pool with 2D. Sounds like a blast to me! <3
4. Tank Girl
Tank Girl by BlitzCadet
Tank Girl is a fabulous comic book character who makes things go BOOM and then has a cold beer when it’s all over. Sometimes she’s a little gross, or vulgar, or horny, but hey, who isn’t? There wouldn’t be a boring day ever if she was around. We’d drink beers and smoke cigars with Booga, decorate tanks and other artillery vehicles with fun stickers and graffiti, and play with all of our talking stuffed animals of course, like Mr. Precocious and Camp Koala. I am SO ready to go hop on board the tank for some fun adventures!
5. Pinkie Pie
Pinkie Pie is the perky party princess of Ponyville, from the My Little Pony fandom. Clearly, a good friend must be entertaining, and Pinkie Pie would just go go go without stopping. She tells great jokes, she’s full of energy, and she loves to squeal. Qualities any good friend should have. Especially the squealing part. Toothless, her super cute pet alligator, and my dog Couscous would be fast friends. And I’d love to help the ponies on their missions to find the elements of harmony, or to help Twilight Sparkle learn a lesson about friendship, or even just in the planning of some incredible parties in Ponyville! PARTY TIME!
*BONUS* 6. Lurch
Lurch is the faithful household butler of the creepy and the kooky Addams Family. And something tells me, in my heart of hearts, that Lurch would be a fabulous BFF. Sure, he’s quiet, a little stoic, and kind of a servant in the Addams home, but he does the sweetest things for them, and I would imagine his friends. He is tolerant and puts up with a lot of silliness and nonsense – 2 qualities that are pretty essential for anyone who is going to be my friend. In our spare time, we could practice ballroom dancing, chase spiders, or play hide and seek in the marvelous Addams mansion. I know I wouldn’t mind hanging out with Wednesday or Pugsley for the day as well, providing they keep me out of that electric chair. -.-
