caught up with dclot and was gonna complain about Nate leaving/them not showing og Zari one last time- to find out its cancelled 😒😢
man... i loooooved this show. one of my favorite things in media is when they do historical plot-based stuff. like taking events that happened irl and screwing around with it. i dont know what to call it but just exactly what this show was.
even after all the cast changes, i still had fun every season. i thought i wouldn’t care about it anymore after ray left but that didn’t happen. every new character eventually grew on me and i got new favorites. but now... nevermind i guess?
i dont know if they’re going to continue something with the legends in the f*lash (which.... is just boring to me now. kinda stopped watching after the mirror stuff 😬 but i think a lot of ppl feel the same way) i guess we’ll see. either way im so going to miss this show. ironically in my head, as i watched season 7, i hoped it would continue for a few more years 💔
#dclot spoilers #dc legends of tomorrow #nate was like bye guys ✌ #just in time for them to pull the plug
so, i know dclot isn't a super popular fandom, and not a lot of people care about it being cancelled. but i LOVE this show, and the fact that it's been cancelled is hurting me right now. i mean, i have a whole pinterest board with sections dedicated to shifting there. i love the characters. i love the aesthetics. i love the diversity. i even love the stupid plotholes. this show is my comfort show. its my #1. my ride or die. its so easy to follow despite all the twists and turns and aliens and timetravel misshaps and new characters ( and dead ones ) and the 50 different villains every season. it corny, campy, and amazing all at the same time. and it being cancelled was obviously not the highlight of the end of my school year.
on april 29th, a ton of articles were posted, talking about how dclot was cancelled, and would not be renewed for an 8th season.
( from top left, to top right, to bottom left, to bottom right )
this show has been some of the only queer rep ive seen on tv, especially dealing with superheros. characters like sara and ava and supergirls' alex are the only queer role models ive had, well, ever. i grew up in a straight, white, jehovahs witness household. i never came out as trans or anything at all because i didnt know what i was at first. but when i started watching shows like dclot and supergirl, i realized i could be so much, and that i didnt need labels. i didnt even have to come out. no one had to know. as long as i was content with myself, truly, thats all that mattered. thats what the legends taught me.
now, im young, and i might now always be the way i am now, but i know, now, at this moment, i am who i am meant to be. everything i do from now on will be because of who i am and the choices i make. and i wont regret them. this is what is meant to happen.
ava and sara are like moms to me, being that ive been on my own for a while without my own mother. theyve taught me so much. and that its okay to be who i want to be.
zari ( + z 2.0 ) taught me that not everything is always going to be the way it was before. everything changes eventually.
behrad taught me that sometimes its okay to hide away and not talk about your feelings. things can get hard and being public about how you are feeling isnt always an easy choice. there are always alternatives.
but john constantine taught me that you need to open up eventually. you cant hide out forever. youll always have people there for you, even if you dont think you do.
nate taught me that you can love who you want. it doesnt matter what other people say, even if your s/o is from a different timeline 🤪
astra taught me not to hide your flaws, but to flaunt them. no one's better than you are, and you should be proud of that.
ray taught me that there is something to be optimistic in every situation. theres always a smile to bring and a joke to crack.
amaya taught me to always stay true to your roots and trust your family over everyone.
charlie taught me to be rash and not give a f🖕🏻 what anyone else thinks. be yourself and love yourself.
mick and leonard taught me to never betray your friends and to always look out for them.
nora taught me that its okay to be different and to not follow in the footsteps of those before you. your not a perfect replica of your mom or dad, and thats more than okay.
jax and stein taught me that its safe to let go and start anew. its healthy. encouraged, actually.
spooner taught me that nothing is as it seems. but just because everything has secrets, doesnt mean that everything is problematic.
gideon, gary, and mona taught me that being weird and non-conforming with societies stereotypes is OK.
and finally, rip taught me that risking things is a part of life. you have to make sacrifices, no matter how big they may seem.
all i wanted was a season 8 to clear things up. what happens to the legends in time prison? whats gonna happen with booster gold? where did these time police spawn from because i do NOT remember there being police that gaurd time and space.
this entire show is so absolutely chaotic and crazy, but thats what makes it so good.
sara just found out shes prego with AVAS BABY. nate goes to live with zari in the totem. booster gold's "mike" fakes out the legends to take their ship before returning it to get the legends sent to time prison for doing time crimes. gwynn rescues alun from dying at his fixed point, which is insane.
i went through like 15 stages of grief on that last episode.
and now, what else?
the cancellation was my 26th reason.
im alone now. theres no hope for another season.
im going to miss the legends with my whole heart, and there will always be the show on netflix and illegal websites. i can always go back and watch my favourite episodes and seasons. idc how bad the cgi is, i will always watch those episodes on gorilla grodd and beebo.
What we all feared has become true; It's the end for our chaotic little queer superhero show.
#legends of tomorrow #dclot s7#dclot #dclot s8 cancelled #lot #im feeling numb... #can't really wrap my brain around it #this still feels like we're on a long hiatus waiting to comeback #only we wont... #i have lots of thoughts #just no words yet
I was just really hope Dominic Purcell/Mick would appear in this last episode. I thought he had some kind of handshake deal with Klemmer to appear sometimes. Maybe next season?
Originally, I thought so too. I haven't really been keeping track of the cast or anyone from the production side of things though, aside from following Adam Tsekhman and Shayan Sobhian on Instagram, so I don't really know if anything's been going on behind the scenes.
#dclot rel. #i like to keep my instafeed short #lol i'm surprised i still follow my own mother
dclot summary gifset update: it’s pretty hard to concentrate on making jokes when there’s war on the continent, but i think i’m far enough along at this point that i’ll most likely have the gifset finished by tonight
i hate having to put up disclaimers before every other new dclot episode, but i’ve got quite a lot on my schedule tomorrow. however, i’ll truly be doing everything i possibly can to get that gifset done before the end of thursday, so i can wake up on friday and start my birthday doing one of my favorite things, which is reading all y’all’s tags and comments ♥
lot summary gifset update: i could be jinxing myself by saying this, but things have gone surprisingly smooth so far. just gotta sharpen a few frames, adjust a few color settings, tweak a few punchlines, and i’m done! so y’all can pretty confidently go ahead and expect it tonight at the usual hour
#dclot rel. #felt like the jokes haven't come this easily to me in years #lol not sure if that's a good thing or a bad thing though
