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.
