fever series  
Dreamcast/Recast challenge at landofart, had a blast doing this. I had previously cast the books a few years ago, but I decided to recast a few characters. Mac and Alina are the same, and while I do not share the view the rest of the 'fandom' has on character choice, I believe mine is the right one. Because it is.

I'm sure you know the drill of the internet:

+ credit
+ not bases
+ feedback is awesome

There are spoilers for the books. A synopsis of them is at the end.

MacKayla Lane | played by Kristen Bell

Jericho Barrons | played by Michael Fassbender

Dreamy Eyed Boy / Unseelie King | played by Colin Morgan

Dani O'Malley | played by Lily Cole

Christian MacKeltar | played by Ben Barnes

Alina Lane | played by Katee Sackhoff

Inspector Jayne | played by Jeffery Dean Morgan

MacKayla Lane was just a child when she and her sister, Alina were given up for adoption and banished from Ireland forever.

Twenty years later, Alina is dead and Mac has returned to the country that expelled them to hunt her sister's murderer. But after discovering that she descends from a bloodline both gifted and cursed, Mac is plunged into a secret history: an ancient conflict between humans and immortals that have lived concealed among us for thousands of years.

What follows is a shocking chain of events with devastating consequences, and now Mac struggles to cope with grief, while continuing her mission to acquire and control the Sinsar Dubh--a book of dark, forbidden magic scribed by the mythical Unseelie King that contains the power to create and destroy worlds.

Just finished reading the last book last night. XD I saw this when you posted it, but was like...OKAY SELF...YOU HAVE TO WAIT UNTIL YOU FINISH READING BEFORE LOOKING.

I was thinking of doing this for my recast when I saw the challenge, but I agree with a good chunk of yours. I'd love to see who you cast for some of the ~other~ characters.

I like your take on Jericho, because I could NOT think of anything short of an animation to capture him EXACTLY like I see him in my head. Fassy definitely could pull off all his character aspects though for sure.

This reminds me that I need to look into seeing if there is any mention other than the bio of her really working on another series in the Fever universe.

Thank you! Barron's was the hardest to picture but I think Fassy's stuck in my head now. I didn't even want to attempt V'lane.

I was on her website when I was making this and it says that next october she's coming out with the first book in a Dani centric trilogy.

YES. I was hoping it would be Dani (and of course show little bits of Dani & Mac, hopefully).

I keep trying to think of V'lane (and then of course a second casting for Cruce), but no one quite...measures up just yet. haha.

I was definitely thinking the same as you for DEG, but I was going to add in a couple other people for the other bits and pieces. haha. Mainly Morgan Freeman. ;)

Ben Barnes was the first who came to mind for Christian. I want Gaspard Ulliel to be either Malluce (with hair change) or one of Barrons' crew. He just kept popping into my head asking to be cast.
