Crossing universes... by BritishMindslave Crossing universes... by BritishMindslave
So I see a lot of crossover and, as I do enjoy crossing universes myself, I am getting very, very irritated. For example, I see Pinkie Pie from MLP with Orichimaru from Naruto.

Now, I know I sound terrible because I did it myself with Kingdom Hearts and Silent Hill, but look at it this way: I gave reasons why it's possible. Kingdom Hearts is about traveling worlds. Seeing Sora hanging out with ponies would be a normal occurrence if it happened. However, there is no reason for the ponies to enter the Naruto universe (or Bleach or other serious anime like that).

Unless it's a parody, there really is no reason.It makes no sense in my mind. Call me bigoted, but it's not just ponies. I see people put YuGiOh characters in Fallout. It doesn't make sense and it never will unless they can turn their card games into guns. It just doesn't happen.

So, there's my point. Belief or disbelief rests with you, as the Garo once said, so you don't have to agree with me. I just felt like making a stamp about this.

My approach in doing crossovers is to depict them as an alternate reality/timeline that branched off of the main franchise's timeline, and thus the main timeline remains untouched:

If enough work and forthought is put into a crossover, anything can cross over and make sense.

Yes and no?
I mean, yes, if you can find real ways to make it happen, I'm sure! However, there is a sense of "does it make sense to put these two things together?"

Well, I'm actually going to try and tie MLP with FNaF which will also be a reimaginging of the old Cupcakes fic.

That's a crossover I've seen a lot, tbh.
Because of Cupcakes, there's been a lot of grimdark added to MLP.

Well, I'm actually attempting to make a sly cross over. Unless you know of FNaF 2, it would be impossible to tell. Cross overs are usually out front, I want to make one more in the background. I'm even changing the appearence and the title is not a cross over title. I would say the cross over part could be considered more as a cameo I suppose.

SuperWhoLock doesn't work because it's crossing over horror, science fantasy and crime drama. Also, the Doctor and Sherlock rarely leave the UK and there's no way Sam and Dean are gonna leave the States because Dean is afraid of flying

Yeah, that doesn't make sense at all. uu Crossing over genres isn't that much of an issue so much as the context itself. Aren't most of them from different time periods, anyway? Well, at least I know the Doctor is a Time Lord, but you know.

Supernatural, Doctor Who and Sherlock take place in different universes and the TARDIS ends up being depowered when she travels through universes so the Doctor's gonna have to get the TARDIS to recharge twice. By that time, the companions'll have got bored and wandered off. Besides, the Doctor wouldn't get on with Sam, Dean, Sherlock or John because they all use guns and the Doctor doesn't approve of them

I see the Doctor is involved in universe hopping. While the crossover is unlikely, I do see a minor detail out of place. Allow me to add my nugget of knowledge.
:iconsmartyplz:
The Doctor has, in fact, gone to the USA before in his Tardis. The first few seasons they do show mostly sticking to the UK, he does go outside of that zone. While I admit I don't know all the episodes off the top of my head, there is the one time that is a pretty big deal. I believe the episode is "The Impossible Astronaut". There are also the trips to Venice and Pompeii. Along with other such trips like that it wouldn't be too hard to believe the Doctor would/could tumble his way over to the US again.
As for the dealing with people who use guns. He does that often. He tries to convince them to not use them all the time. Sherlock, although he can, doesn't really use them often, that would be Watson. Even then, he's not exactly trigger happy himself. I think the most the Doctor would have trouble with with them would be Sherlock's all but detached view on the lives of others.
I don't watch Supernatural, but from what I'd seen it would be the most impossible for there to be a flawless crossover. More likely would be a Sherlock/Doctor type thing. Though don't get me wrong, you'd still have to work on it. All the shit going down in Doctor Who, Sherlock would be all over those mysteries. Come on, he's a bored genius. What could be more entertaining then investigating things that involve the Doctor?
Anyway, this got WAY longer then I intended. But my points are valid.
Doctor-Lock -- Plausible with some work.
Super-Doctor -- You'd need a lot of work and an open mind.
Super-Lock -- Nope, not gunna happen.
Super-Who-Lock -- Bawhahahahaha :iconmonkeylaughplz:

:icondignitylaughplz:
Enjoy my annoying logic.

That makes even more sense LOL
My friend DancingTwinBlades knows more about Doctor Who than I do, so what I know is from her.

Thanks for the explanation though! That's definitely true, it wouldn't make sense, at least not in a serious, plot-driven story.

Sora(Kingdom Hearts hero)/Jim Hawkins(the boy from Treasure Planet)? Though the only reason I got into this was because I saw a Youtube AMV called Sora/Jim(Never actually saw it)

I dunno how much sense that is

That's a little odd, but at least with Kingdom Hearts some crossovers are entirely possible because of world-hopping.
Pairing is still weird, but it's a preference. xD

Didn't check your profile to see if you like it

Me too I love that film

I also want to see Goof Troop since I loved that toon

And not for romance reason for both, Treasure Planet for all the adventurous potentials and Goof Troop since I loved the world representing Steamboat Willie in KH2 for humour and I really want to see Max Goof again it's years since Max appeared

I don't really have anything for it in my profile. I watched the movie when I was a kid, and have seen it on TV a few times. uvu I absolutely love Disney Movies. <3

That was a fantastic cartoon, too! I used to watch that too xD

It would be really awesome if they put Max in KH, and Jim. I think they would make fantastic worlds in the game, if Max isn't a partner or anything. There's a lot more KH to come, and new bad guys, so I'd love to see what they put. ouo/

I'd love to see more Disney movies especially those on the early 2000s by this point since most are not well known other than Lilo and Stitch and I don't want them to poof out into existence like they look like they are going to be compared to most of the 90s film

I was so thrilled to see Hunchback of Notre Dame on Dream Drop Distance whee Paris and bell towers I was scared that film is vanishing into obscurity and I was so happy to see otherwise

I hate it when a crossover is well written until all of sudden the author decides to make it go kamikaze and it just becomes 100% cheesy cliché.

I agree. It's really not something I enjoy reading, unless it's well thought-out. If they just divebomb into something that I've read a thousand times before, I can't even deal. xD
I never understood those fics with, like, a million animes in one because you can't make a plot for that.

You wouldn't happen to be familiar with Fallout, BioShock, and Assassins Creed, would you?

Understandable. uvu
Well, I know very little to nothing about Fallout, but I know Assassins Creed and Bioshock a little bit. I believe BioShock (especially Infinite) takes place at specific time periods as does AC. I don't have much to go by, I'm afraid, because I've only watched someone play the original Bioshock for a bit.

I'm trying to do a Final Fantasy VII and Tales of Symphonia cross over as an attempt at a murder mystery (when I got the idea I was on a bit of CSI and NCIS kick).

I'm actually in the process of rewriting this because once I nine and half chapters in I thought: Wait...NONE OF THIS MAKES ANY FLIPPING SENSE! BACK TO THE DRAWING BOARD!

I ran the idea past a few people and they have said that FFVII and ToS crossover seems plausible and liked the idea of having chapter devoted to Cloud and Kratos duking it out and my OCs placing bets on who would win.

BritishMindslave Featured By Owner Apr 24, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
FFVII happens to be one of my favorite series. xDD
I think it would work out. They have the same general genre and setup, so I really don't see how that would be implausible.

I applaud you for going back halfway through to rewrite. xD I look at my old fics and cry, because I wanted to rewrite mine, but holy Jesus FUCK they're difficult to read for me. I end up laughing at my younger self. xD

And not to mention I also have a plausible way of getting my OC to Aselia. falling into the Lifestream. Becasue once you fall in there is no telling what will happen.

though that also means severe Mako poisoning too...

does it make sense for Fullmetal Alchemist characters to be in the Legend of Korra universe? I would think so because both series are steampunk oriented. And Ed and Al could take out the Equalists with alchemy.
Reply
:iconbritishmindslave:
BritishMindslave Featured By Owner Mar 23, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Alchemy doesn't exist in Legend of Korra, so it would cause a lot of alarm. xD Also, basing the crossover on whether or not they're both steampunk doesn't give a lot of basis. LOK harbors on a lot of spiritual elements, where FA, from what I've seen of it, has more science to it.
If someone could make it work, power to them, but I don't see a huge potential in it other than "hey let's mash my favorite series together!"

Hm, I honestly can't understand why people hate crossovers so much. Maybe it's because I am from Russia and in our part of the Internet crossovers were always treated like a normal thing. It's all for fun anyway
Not to mention, just because something doesn't make sense to you it doesn't mean it doesn't make a sense at all. Sense is a vague thing

I don't have crossovers. I do them a lot, actually. I mean, as long as it makes a bit of sense. You know, if you can explain it beyond "oh I was bored" or "I just like these two characters and wanted them to be in love", then it's fine.
Crack pairings are odd in that sense. I have a few myself, but it's the matter of taking the character out of their own personality to make something fit that peeves me.

EEHHHHHH I don't think it always has to make sense. Sometimes people just feel like drawing two things together with no explanation.

Like oh I dunno, let's just pull something out of the blue here, Hatsune Miku as a My Little Pony.

Maybe someone has drawn this and has offered no explanation for it.

And maybe that person is me.

But just maybe.

I think ponifying things is alright, but say if Miku entered the MLP universe, it wouldn't make sense? Unless they made her a counterpart in the MLP universe, but I haven't seen them use computers.

But I have no problem with ponifying things. It's just crossing them over as stories/comics/etc and trying to give it a story that doesn't make sense that irks me.

xD That's mostly what the stamp is about, making stories. Crossing universes in some silly artwork is okay, and even in serious artwork, but when you try to make some epic about the characters from, say, Yu-Gi-Oh! meeting up with characters from Team Fortress, it gets ridiculous.

Miku ponies are fine! u v u I love Miku ponies. They are the shit. <3 It's fun to see people's designs, definitely.
