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

You know how… the year starts and everything is shiny and new and you are invincible? You can do everything. You’re going to make your health a priority, you’re going to save all the money, you’re going to make all the words and graphics. In January possibilities become a glittery supremacy. You’ve got your cape and your pencil. Look out world!

NaNoWriMo and Mini_WriMo checkin

Some of us are just wrapping up Day 1 while others are already solidly into Day 2. So sound off on how the first day(s) are going. Any surprises? Victories/setbacks? It's still early so don't let things get you down.

Our kitchen sink sprang a leak about 45 minutes before I was to start word wars. We need a new the faucet apparently. Maintenance had to turn off water to the kitchen sink but it was a good excuse to order a pizza :D Managed to pull it together in time for word wars and 6 of us participated in one or more rounds.
