Fandom Squee Day 1: DC TV

Hey everyone,
Happy November!

And welcome to one of this month's fabulous monthly challenges: Fandom Squee. For all of you who aren't taking on NaNoWriMo this month or if you want a little break from the hardcore speed writing then we are here to help :)

How this is going to work is me and flipflop_diva are going to be providing fandom based encouragement each day of this month. Weekdays will each have a specific fandom basis and weekends will be more general. Our challenge to you is to rave an acceptable amount about the fandoms you love and try to create something for each day. There will be a reward for anyone that participates on any day and a special reward for people who try something new and create something for each day!

First up is:
DC TV Shows

So anything from Arrow, Supergirl, Flash, Constantine or Legends of Tomorrow.
WARNING: There will no doubt be spoilers below for the new serieses (is that the right word?) of each of these shows (apart from Constantine *sobs*) so be careful and no blatent spoilers please.

Now these are all fandoms very close to my heart, I only started watching Arrow at the beginning of last season and now I am addicted. I love Oliver's character and Stephen Amell's protrayal is fabulous. So of course when I caught up on Arrow I had to watch all the others and have not regreted it yet.

Although I am slightly disappointed with the beginning of this season of Flash but that is probably just me. I hope once they get into it it will get better!

And finally from me, can we all talk about Constantine, because that show should have had way more than one season and I would have loved to see John turning up in all of the crossovers and making a nuisance of himself :D

So what do you guys think? Discuss ... and create :D

I'm still stanning for Constanine's return. The more Constantine the better! Finally got my hands on the blu ray so intend to do some screen caps once NaNo is over. Matt Ryan is the perfect Constantine and I was SO pissed with NBC for what they did to him.

Love Arrow too...but John Constantine has my heart. He's gonna have to return to my Daredevil fics soon I think...I miss writing him...and he's got a robbery to undertake as a 'favor' for someone who helped him out last time around lol.

Everything should have more Constantine! I was so happy with all the casting, sad that they cut Liv though but anyway. I just wanted CW to bring the series back to join the extended universe :(

I wouldn't mind him popping up on Supernatural either...hehe...

And I'm still waiting to see if the rumors about him popping up on Legends of Tomorrow pan out too...because I want him to play with Ray Palmer :P

I just want him to pop up anywhere! All of the Constantine!
Although him on Supernatural would be brilliantly funny!

Especially if he has to be snarky with Crowley, lol.

We'll just put Constantine in everything...have him walk across the screen in his trenchcoat, cigarette hanging from his mouth...that would work for me ;)

ooh - Arrow has such yummy eye candy too! I'm always behind on these shows as I only binge watch on Netflix but love both Arrow and the Flash. Haven't watched any of the others yet but maybe after NaNo, LOL.

I'm a little behind this season but there are so many shows to watch! Binge watching is so fab though cause no cliffhangers!

I haven't gotten hooked into Flash yet...not sure why it hasn't hooked me like Arrow and Legends did.

I blame John Barrowman for hooking me into Arrow though...

Blame John Barrowman for everything!

I started the DCverse solely because Arrow was adding Neal McDonough to the cast. True story.

The Flash is definitely my favorite (though I do heartily agree that this season has been BLEH, so far) ; and Legends, I am enjoying FAR more than I expected too. Arrow... it's a little dark for my taste, and I'm so over the flashbacks.. but I keep watching because I'm invested in the 'verse.

Aside from the Flash crossover episode, I only just mainlined Supergirl a few weeks ago, in preparation for it joining the team, and found that I'm enjoying the hell out of it. I still miss Smallville.

I've only seen Constantine on his Arrow episode, but enjoyed his snark quite a bit!

I'm really hoping for some actual backstory of Damien Darhk on LoT, because Arrow just didn't give me a real good reason to not like him. And it is REALLY hard for me to find a reason to not like a bad guy Neal plays because he plays bad SOOOOO good. But, yeah.. I wasn't impressed by Damien's "evil".

Also, I say this as a DCTV fan. I have zero interest in any of the films.

for the new serieses (is that the right word?)
It's just series. Like sheep. ;)

Arrow has to be my favourite but I like them all for different reasons. The flashbacks are a little wearing but I have also been waiting for Bratva Oliver for too long now.

I am also looking forward more Damien Darhk, it is explained so fast that he is like a rogue immortal assassin but then they gloss over it and it is assumed that you'll dislike him because he's the villian.

Constantine is the best, the series is so snarky but it is very dark, as you would expect from a series about an wise-cracking exorcist :D

I really liked Man of Steel (Henry Cavill <3) but all the others are kinda disappointing :(. Hoping for good things from Wonder Woman and Justice League

Thanks, words aren't working today!

I am -REALLY- hoping for some sort of Superman in-joke, assuming Kara and Ray meet.. but I've never actually seen his movie, either.

But I am all for inside jokes (like Oliver's comment about liking a hockey mask for a vigilante two weeks back)

I'm having a hard time taking the Bratva stuff seriously, but I blame that entirely on casting. *snuggles Zelenka* at least all my Stargate actors are staying employed, thanks to the CW

I really want Superman (Tyler) to meet Ray and be like "you look really familiar" :D
The inside jokes are the best jokes!

Yeah I just love like the Bratva workings and how it was the final straw in turning Oliver into the Arrow :)

I love Arrow so much, but I haven't had the chance to watch anything beyond the first season. Hopefully it's online somewhere so I can catch up because watching Oliver fire off those arrows in that gif is making my heart go pitter-patter. :D

Also, whaaaaaat? I had no idea there was a Constantine series! I must see it! Gosh, I am sucking at TV viewing this year, y'all.

Constantine was on NBC a few years back. They didn't give it much love, though...

Thankfully, CW was able to kinda-sorta pick it up and reclaim it.

Yeah it was really glossed over, I only watched it this year!

NBC really screwed over Constantine...and I'm still mad at them for that and for canceling Hannibal

Damn right *fans self*
I got the first three seasons on DVD for my birthday and just binged them all! It was so satisfying.

Question
There will be a reward for anyone that participates on any day and a special reward for people who try something new and create something for each day!

Can I enter in December and also get a banner? ._.

I've been watching Arrow from the start and I picked up on the Flash at the start too - unfortunately I've gotten behind on both this season, so I need to catch up! I managed an ep of Constantine, but need to mainline that too, and the few eps of SUpergirl that I watched, I loved as well. I just get sidetracked by so many other things, and as my family are not so into these shows, it becomes something I have to find time for alone... BUT! I can try and get some drabbles in somewhere this month, as I really need to up my word count, and these shows are perfect for little slices of life!

So many shows! Like I love that they are all on at the same time cause you can crossover but there is so much to watch at the moment!
Yay for words! I love writing for Arrow, I still need to finish my Heroine BB *sigh*

Constatine and Arrow have yet to grab me, but Legends hooked me until the end of Season One. I'm still not at all happy with what happened to a particular favorite of mine there and have mixed feelings about Season 2. I've been loving Gotham since the start, however, and am definitely enjoying Supergirl.

And I'll always love Smallville's CLex. :)
