So basically this morning was a shipping paradise for me.
Dick’s little downturned face when Mal is pissed at Aqualad: shipping Dick/Kaldur so hard.
Shipping Arsenal/Kaldur so hard.
Shipping Arsenal/Red Arrow so hard.
Shipping many inappropriate versions of Arsenal/Red Arrow/Ollie. Oops.
This year nobody remembered your birthday, Conner? (Besides M’gann, obviously) I bet Kaldur remembered! Kaldur/Superboy ftw.
Also, UNLIKE OTHER ANIMATED SHOWS (forever bitter), I’m glad that Jason did actually exist in this universe. Arsenal should go find him and Kori ASAP and have awesome threesomes.
Green Lantern: TAS is a different experience, rewatching it while knowing what happens later.
Dear Ray Palmer: I hope you meet Hank Pym soon. I think he needs to save your ass. You are doing a pretty bad job of saving yourself.
Yeah, M’gann/Artemis is a more interesting ship than Spitfire.
Aw, Conner. You are kind of adorable.
You’ve only been in charge a year, huh, Nightwing? Hmm. Whatever, I miss Kaldur.
HEY, REMEMBER ALL THOSE PEOPLE WHO BITCHED ON AND ON ABOUT HOW M’GANN WASN’T PROFESSIONAL ENOUGH AND LET HER FEELINGS FOR SUPERBOY INTERFER WITH THE MISSION? I HOPE THEY ARE BITCHING ABOUT LAGOON BOY.
Shut up, Lagoon Boy.
Hey, we are in the water. Can we have more Kaldur, please?
Christ, I hate this M’gann storyline. I hate it so fucking much. Nothing but hate.
Okay, “let’s endanger everyone because I am a jealous twit.” Awesome plan, Lagoon Boy.
So, M’gann is tampering with people’s minds and Artemis is “rusty.” NICE ,show. I can’t wait for Legend of Korra to wipe this shitty taste out of my mouth.
HI, KALDUR. Still sucks that you’re evil.
Kaldur, Kaldur, Kaldur.
Okay, Kaldur’s tricks with water are pretty epic, let’s be honest.
Of course, the mission succeeded, because THE VILLAINS ALWAYS WIN ON THIS FUCKING SHOW.
Show. Did you just.
Okay. Okay, I am pacified. KALDUR. KALDUR MY BABY. I KNEW YOU WEREN’T EVIL. And shipping Nightwing/Kaldur like whoa.
On to Korra.
I was just chilling and enjoying the canon ships without much thought on Young Justice, but this morning, Conner and M’gann were so adorable that they moved into the Perfect category.
I’d put Eli/Tommy in the cute category.
Green Lantern: I do like how Hal-like they let Hal be on this show. At heart a good guy, but … very impulsive, very certain he is right and very determined to do what he thinks is right. Good call, show.
I’m not so certain about the whole “Hal is secretly a ninja!” thing, but Abby is trying to convince me that’s it okay because of the Air Force.
Abby: SG-1 could take those aliens!
Me: I kind of want Jack/Hal, now.
Abby: … Probably the wrong Jack, there, bb.
I have mixed feelings on this ep. I really loved the stuff with M’gann - I loved her wanting to help so much, being conflicted over what are perfectly natural fears, and Beast Boy’s origin is so much better than “lol, bit by a green monkey.”
I loved her struggles. Loved them. And I loved Conner’s reactions.
(I am not reading the YJ tag for a while. I can only imagine the things fandom is calling M’gann after this ep. After going out of their way to hate on Artemis last week for stupid ass reasons, I can’t deal with their nonsense with M’gann this week.)
But … as inevitable as it is, I so don’t want Robin leading this team. And it’s not even only because Kaldur is my favorite (he is!) but because I genuinely think Kaldur is a better leader. WHen DIck is in charge, all of the extreme batty traits that make Dick Grayson a sometimes frustrating character to read (blah blah all about the mission blah blah) suddenly come out. In a way they don’t when he is just a team member.
Also, Kaldur is my favorite.
Oh, well. Clearly he was off getting lots and lots of orgasms with Garth and Tula.
Speaking of orgasms: I’m with Ollie: the beginning was hilarous. Sorry, Canary.
November 5, eh? LOL
Also, the Justice Leauge is lazy as hell. “LOL, why should superheroes use real muscle power when we can just cheat?”
Awww, Red Arrow disappeared too! Need to be writing Kaldur dealing, yes/yes?
"I know it’s hard, but try to stay whelmed." AWWWWWWW.
Okay, there ARE going to be Conner baby fic, right? LOTS AND LOTS AND LOTS.
Billy you are a dork.
"I am Aqualad. These are my friends, Robin and Kid Flash." AWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW.
I WILL NEVER, EVER GROW TIRED OF AQUALAD GIVING SPEECHES TO THE WORLD.
Writing Kaldur/Wally, yes/yes?
Oh, Zatanna/Robin: still adorable
Kaldur is rarely unsure of himself, but it does happen sometimes - especially when he has spent any prolonged time in Atlantis (Robin blames “the whole Black Manta thing,” and there might be something to that theory, but neither Kaldur nor his lovers discuss it.)
Conner would like very much to go to Atlantis (“I can’t drown!”) and punch everyone who might be responsible, until he finds the person who actually is.
But ultimately, Conner yields to M’gann’s wisdom, which means that the three of them spend the day curled up on the couch watching The Little Mermaid (until their own brands of Ursulas interrupt with their supervillain plots) and providing physical reminders of how wanted Kaldur is during the many musical numbers.
Awwwwww, poor Captain Marvel.
"You are so making this up to me later." LOL, show, I approve when you are completely inappropriate.
Ahaha, Mal’s Superboy costume. :) Conner’s reaction is pretty much the same as mine to the 90s outfit. So bad.
KALDUR, your FAITH IN YOUR TEAM IS PERFECT.
Also, I love that Roy gets invited to the adult (and Robin) secret meeting. I love more that Kaldur, Robin and Wally are OBVIOUSLy in the clear with Roy.
Hi, there, Secret!
AHAHA, Zatanna switching her shoes in the middle of her running sequence. Awesome.
"Harm doesn’t battle his demons. Harm embraces them." LOLOLOL, that’s a little too much cheese, show.
Harm is a little too much cheese, to be frank. The whole “referring to self in 3rd self” really only works for Doom.
I approve of M’gann, Conner and Wally’s prank. Sucks to be you, Marvin.
Okay, the “Secret” thing is annoying me now.
Ha, Artemis’ comeback. Saving that one up, were you, Artie?
To be honest, I didn’t like this one. Greta didn’t live up to the considerable awesome she was in the comics (where she was allowed to have actual dialogue, pft.) And the women on this show are fantastic, so Greta not being allowed to reach her full awesome (standing still is not a superpower, show) is especially disappointing, because this show could do better. Also, Harm sucked.
tl;dr: Eh, every show has at least one turkey.
