I have a secret. I don’t really watch the Olympics. I might watch some of it, but I don’t keep track of which country has the most medals or anything I can’t go to Google for. Please don’t hate me. I’m just not a sports person no matter what the sport is.
But in honor of the Olympics, I decided to create my own fantasy fantasy Olympics team featuring characters from fantasy literature, film, and TV. The events wouldn’t be swimming or kayaking; they’d be more like Wizard’s Duel, Quidditch, vampire slaying, zombie survival, time travel, lightsaber competition…you get the idea.
I picked Harry Potter and Lord Voldemort to be coaches because although they both fought each other in an epic-showdown in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, you have to admit they are great motivators and know how to rally people around them.
I picked The Doctor from Doctor Who because he’s a Time Lord so he’s been all over the universe and has knowledge about the different species that inhabit it. Not only has the Doctor been all over the universe, he’s even restarted the universe to save it from not existing all together.
Rupert Giles because in Buffy he’s the go-to person for anything research related, and he’s been part of every epic battle Buffy ever faced. Plus he made hanging out in the school library cool again.
Yoda…come on, he’s Yoda. How could you not want Yoda as a coach?
Fitzpatrick “Trick” McCorrigan
Anita Blake is one of the most powerful characters in fantasy literature. I think the question is, what can’t she do? Not only is she herself bad-a** powerful, but those around her aka her boyfriends, are not to be messed with either.
Buffy Summers has fought monsters from different dimensions, saved the world on a weekly basis, and knows how to dress. She’s the Chosen One for a reason.
Fitzpatrick “Trick” McCorrigan from Lost Girl is the Blood King who wrote Fae laws. His blood has the power to make whatever he writes happen. In addition, he knows more about the Fae than anyone else.
