januar: from The Legend of Korra: Jinora reading ([korra] jinora)
There's something fun and exciting about fusing two fandoms together. It's even more interesting when within one of the fandoms there are classes that different people fall into. It forces you to think, 'well, if characters X, Y, and Z were in World B, what would they be?' Sometimes it's really hard, because a character could have aspects of all the different classes. Which is okay! That just means they're a well rounded character. You also have to be careful, because most of the time these classes have colors associated with them. Just because this character has fiery red hair doesn't mean they're automatically a Gryffindor or a Firebender. Yes, he wears green, no, that doesn't automatically qualify as an Earthbender. Also, you don't have to break them up. It seems to be an automatic thing that if you take a group of four from one fandom, and put them in another fandom that has four classes, you -have- to put one in each. You really don't. I understand wanting to (and honestly, that's what I tend to end up doing, splitting them evenly, or at least trying to), because then you have a group of all four Hogwarts houses or all four Nations. But if it doesn't feel in character for the characters, then don't.

Harry Potter and Avatar the Last Airbender are two of those worlds with classes that people seem to like to stick other characters into. Homestuck is probably another popular one, since you're given more options with Classes and Aspects. I've also done some poking with the ElfQuest world (are they Wolfriders? Go Backs? Wave Dancers?)

Then there's taking a character each from four different fandoms and making them a group. Like Rise of the Brave Tangled Dragons, which is my new favorite crack fandom crossover. (I totally blame seeing this post on tumblr.) Which is really what sparked me writing this entry in the first place. Eventually, maybe, I'll make a post with my own sortings and why. As I said, it's fun to think about these things.
