don't call us sidekicks

Speak out against the cancellation of Young Justice & Green Lantern

Two months ago, watchcommunity initiated a fan project that was as striking as it was brilliant. They implored the fans of the show to come together and star in a montage of themselves telling the world why their show mattered. 

We’re going to do the same thing. This cycle of episodes has come to a close, but that is no reason for us to go quietly. So.

We want you to star in a collective fan-showcase of reasons why YJ and GLTAS should be renewed. It’s simple.

  • Record yourself saying, in six words or less OR in five seconds or lesswhy Cartoon Network should renew Young Justice and/or Green Lantern: The Animated Series. Any entrees exceeding this time or word limit will not be accepted.
  • You do not necessarily have to speak the words; you can write them out or make signs or art!
  • Those six words or less cannot contain profanity
  • Upload your video to mediafire or sendspaceE-mail the link to renewyjandgltas@gmail.com
  • AND ALSO, PLEASE, send the file in an e-mail attachment to renewyjandgltas@gmail.com WITH THAT LINK
  • Keep it short, sweet, and concise. Don’t be afraid to be creative. Or emotional. But please refrain from having any extraneous sound in your video that may render your words inaudible.
  • For ideas, take a look at watchcommunity’s video.
  • If you have any questions, ask. Or browse questions that have already been answered.

We will need a minimum of 16 people to make this video a decent length, but I know you guys can do better than that. These shows have impacted your life as much as they have mine; I know they have. So let’s do this. When the video is completed, it will be uploaded to Youtube for you to share to your heart’s content – and your heart’s content had better be enormous; I am just saying. 

The deadline to submit your contribution is April 6. The completed project will, as said, be uploaded to Youtube, and burned to a DVD that will be sent to CN’s headquarters, as well as, hopefully, WB’s and DC Comics’.

WE NEED YOU.

SPREAD THIS AROUND.

EDIT 3/19: You can watch a preview of the video here.

Hope Burns Bright: A Young Justice/Green Lantern Fan Showcase

WHY SHOULD CARTOON NETWORK RENEW YOUNG JUSTICE AND GREEN LANTERN: THE ANIMATED SERIES?

FANS HAVE A FEW ANSWERS.

.

Fans of Young Justice and Green Lantern: The Animated Series were asked to say, in six seconds or less, why they believe that these two shows should be renewed. This project is intended to show Cartoon Network, Warner Bros., and DC Comics the faces of the people their decisions have affected, to have them look us in the eye and hear what we have to say in montage form – because an avalanche of small messages conveys magnitude, and the time limit requires sincerity. 

And each one of these is sincere, and personal. 130 fans came together with signs and short messages to make this into a montage of great magnitude. Within it are the many, many real people who care fiercely about both of these shows and have been campaigning for months and months to have their voices be heard by Cartoon Network, DC Comics, and Warner Bros. Animation. 

This is only a fraction of the viewers of these shows. But it’s a memorable and driven fraction indeed.

A huge, enormous thank you and congratulations to everyone who contributed to this video – you are all so awesome, and this would be nothing without you!

“I know I did what I had to. But I hated it. When I first joined this team, I was desperate to be in charge. But not anymore. […] I always wanted – expected – to grow up and become Batman. And the hero bit? I’m still all in! But that thing inside of him? That thing that drives him to sacrifice everything for the sake of a mission… that’s not me.”

REMEMBER HOW I MADE THIS POST AND I DIDN’T THINK ANYONE WOULD DO IT?

JOYFULLDREAMS DID IT. THIS PERFECT, BEAUTIFUL, ADORABLE SALVE OF HEALING AND EXUBERANCE IS ALL HER. She let me put it together to the song, which is from the season 3 premiere of NBC's Community (which you can watch for comparison here). Here is her post of the individual stills!

WATCH IT, YJ FANDOM. As of now, this is how season 3 starts. Let it heal your heart hole
