‘’But did you see the flares in the sky? Were you blinded by the light? Did you feel the smoke in your eyes? Did you, did you? Did you see the sparks filled with hope? You are not alone ‘Cause someone’s out there, sending out flares …’’
How can you not want a musical episode from Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl, and Legends of Tomorrow. Like, you have Grant Gustin and Melissa Benoist from Glee (and Blake Jenner now, too), and then you have Jeremy Jordan, Jesse L. Martin, Laura Benanti, Ciara Renee, Arthur Darvill, Victor Garber, Colin Donnell, and John Barrowman who are theatre/Broadway people (Colin and John played the same fucking role in Anything Goes, btw, like father like son), Colton Haynes who can sing, Caity Lotz and Keiynan Lonsdale who are dancers and singers, Carlos Valdes whose a singer and musican, AND Andy Mientus is a theatre/Broadway person who was ALSO on Smash with Jeremy.
Just imagine a musical episode from each show and then think about a giant crossover.
I mostly picture Barry doing a huge tap number, there being a flashback/hallucination/dream where Tommy sings about being Oliver’s best friend, and Hartley having a dramatic ass soliloquy about anything (probably some angsty stuff with Wells).
Okay. I have been wanting to say this for a while. We as a fandom need to stop hating on Laurel Lance. We do.
Laurel has been the female lead since season one, this isn’t news. She is strong and beautiful and brilliant and can push through anything she is faced with. She was dealt a shit hand last season, but she made it through! She is probably the most relatable character in the show! She has dealt with betrayal, death, addiction, losing her job, her sister coming back to life, not mention being kidnapped numerous times. SHE IS SO STRONG. If you look at her as a person and the beautiful and inspirational character she is there is no reason to hate her.
The main reason that people are hating on her is because they think that she is going to get in the way of Olicity, which is just fucking stupid. Because I think people forget that Felicity wasn’t meant to be in more than one episode. She was not supposed to be a reoccurring character, but do you know who was? Laurel. She was the love interest from the beginning. You guys need to realize that. So Lauriver was the original ship of the show. So hating on her for getting in the way of a relationship that originally was not planned is of dumb.
Now despite the fact that I ship Olicity, I do not want Laurel to get back with Oliver. It just won’t work out. He is not good for her, and vise versa. So you see, I don’t ship them together but I don’t hate her just because she is a love interest. It’s ridiculous. No one reacted this way to McKenna or Helena, we didn’t see this much hate even after Oliver slept with Isobel. I mean COME ON.
THE MOST RIDICULOUS THING IS THAT THE LAUREL HATE IS NOW EFFECTING KATIE CASSIDY. People are sending her hate mail and shit, when it is not her fault! She is the actress. It makes me so angry I don’t even have words to express my disappointment for this fandom.
OK. So. I love the idea of Laurel becoming Black Canary. It’s amazing and exciting because she needs some real TLC after season 2. I am ready for her to kiss some serious ass. But there is one thing I want to say to the writers. YOU CAN MAKE LAUREL BLACK CANARY WITHOUT KILLING SARA. We finally have an amazing female relationship and I love Sara. Just don’t hurt my baby.
So hopefully. Now some of you guys will think about this before you post. Don’t hate Laurel. She’s beautiful. We need to pull together as a fandom, isn’t that the whole point? How can we do that when there is so much hate?
“Soulmates? I think they exist. Just not always romantically. I think there are certain people you will meet in your life who you just connect with more than anyone else, and you just know it isn’t a typical thing, and you understand each other perfectly. And this person won’t always be your ‘significant other.’ I mean, it could be your friend or sibling or parent or teacher or the person you’re dating or whoever. It could be just about anyone you’ve ever interacted with.”
