Default Black Library Guest Apperances

So my question is, what group of characters would you like to see come together in one black library novel?

You see it all the time in Comics and popular TV shows under 1 creator. A super popular character of one story is teamed up with another very popular character from another story, best examples are the heroes from the DC/Marvel universes.

Me, I actually think it would be cool to see Uriel Ventris with Ibram Gaunt. It just so happens they are both from my 2 favorite series and my 2 favorite writers, but I think having the likes of Uriel and Gaunt together would be cool, since they both kind of fit into that role of rebel who does what he feels is best for his men.

Also I think Gaunt and Shrike from the Raven Guard would be tight. I just finished reading Hunt for Voldorious or however you spell it, and I think it be kind of cool to see the Ghosts suddenly collaborate with the best scouts the Imperium has to offer.

cain and black templars

For courage can sometimes make a virtue of inexperience. I myself have commanded Imperial Guard troops whose probitor units have achieved great things, because they were too inexperienced to realise that their goal was impossible.

Gaunt is from a different time period than Uriel or Shrike- Gaunt's Ghosts is set about 250 years prior to the current time line (and Eisenhorn/Ravenor is set about 200-250 years before Gaunt).

I'd love to see some inter-chapter collaberation, like in Helsreach but with characters we actually know- Space Wolves and Ultramarines would be pretty awesome, the ultimate rebels alongside the very definition of Astartes soldier.

Ciaphas Cain and the Black Templars in a team-up?

Brilliant! This literally needs to be written!

damn, totally destroyed my awesome vision there....Would Uriel and Rafen be an OK combination? Rafen was another character I have read that I enjoyed, even though I only read the first 3 Blood Angel books.
