I'm getting GLTAS feels coming back full force after seeing some fan arts, and it's killing me. I emotionally distanced myself from that show shortly after it ended simply because I had to. I don't normally get fanatical about TV shows, so this was a big deal to me. There have been only two other shows throughout my whole life that have had such an impact on me: Star Treck TNG and Batman TAS. Don't ask me why those two shows (especially the former, I know how cheesy and downright stupid the writing can be, but it doesn't change my feelings.). I was really loving TMNT, but for some reason I can't explain, it never had the hold on me that GLTAS did, and for some other reason I can't put my finger on, I've lost interest in that show.

I was thinking about these shows and wondering why they had such an effect on me and if they have anything in common that I find appealing. But I can't figure it out really. To me it's interesting though, that in a way, GLTAS combines elements from the two other shows I obsessively loved. I mean, there's the whole Bruce Timm and Paul Dinni take on DC combined with the Star Treck formula. That doesn't really explain why I love this show so much, but that is sort of interesting (if you find really inane things interesting, that is)

Will I do some GLTAS fan art though? I don't know. I'm not getting involved in fandoms any more though, thats for sure. But I'm able to add things to my DA gallery and even submit them to groups without getting engrossed in the fandom like I did on tumblr. But if I do anything, I want it to have some kind of narrative to it, either an implied one or in actual sequential art. I've drawn those characters so much that just drawing beauty pieces of them is boring at this point... IDK, if I come up with some good idea that helps me work through my "feels" I'll do it. If not, I'll just watch old episodes of the show, eat lots of chocolate, and cry.

Heh, you're the opposite of me when it comes to this show: I've been getting this visceral feeling of 'Do not want' whenever I even look at anything GLTAS related (but I'm too lazy to change out my current icons and nuke the stuff from my blog. Go figure), solely because of the fandom. I pretty much bailed for reasons I've stated elsewhere, and I don't intend on looking back.

To be honest, in hindsight, I don't think the show was as perfect and flawless as everyone said it is. Sure, it had some really good moments -and those it did exceptionally well-, but the Razaya stuff -which I had no interest on- eclipsed everything, and when I was excited for the stuff I liked (Larfleeze in particular), I remember someone got really passive-aggressive and tetchy b/c they didn't like Larfleeze at all and made a point every time I posted something positive about the episode. (I unfollowed them shortly thereafter)

Then again, I've pretty much pulled out of the GL fandom in general (I'll get into that in my journal at a later time), so I apologize for my bitterness. =/
