So I really enjoyed today's episode of GLTAS. I don't know that I have any ideas for fan art for it though. But maybe when the kids are in bed and I have a moment to hear myself think I can come up with something. Haha

But the show was just plain FUN. It didn't move the overall story along but I didn't mind that because it really was so much fun. As always I loved the designs and I loved the whole feel of the steam punk world. I also really liked how the show focused on the idea of heroism through, Hal, the Steam Lantern, and Nigel. Of course Hal is just the most shining example of heroism, with his extravagant self sacrificing actions for the good of others. And there's Gil who really wants to be a hero but doesn't measure up to the image but manages to be a hero anyway through protecting others. And I love that we see that Nigel had heroic intentions but failed as his people's savior because he chose the wrong way to achieve his heroic goals.

And really that last part is, I think, a very good thing to show kids. Because they need to understand that the evil that they usually will have to confront in life is often perpetrated by people with mixed or even good intentions. A hard lesson to process, but I think it's important for kids to learn that things aren't always as black and white as they seem. Otherwise they might grow up to be adults that for example vilify people and groups for having different opinions than they have... And then annoy me by posting dumbass things about this on tumblr. Lol;) And also there is the lesson your intentions aren't enough and that the end never justifies the means.

But, yeah, I haven't mentioned it much, but I do like the subtle lessons for kids in this show.

And on an unrelated note, I figured out how to use different icons for journal entries! Yay! lol
