If you haven’t heard/watched The Lizzie Bennet Diaries, go here.
Otherwise find yourself a cup of tea (because everyone deserves tea) and join me in reminiscing.
When I started watch LBD back in April last year I really wasn’t expecting to get quite as enamoured with the series as I have. For the first couple of months I’d forget the odd week and play catch-up but inevitably I got pulled in and by the time William Darcy made his first appearance I was watching them on the day they went live.
There is so much about The Lizzie Bennet Diaries to love that I could bore you for hours. I won’t. Not this time at least but I want to thank Hank Green, Bernie Su and EVERYONE who made this series.
It wasn’t just Lizzie’s vlogs, or the tie-in videos from Lydia and Gigi – let’s be honest that would have been awesome enough – but all the work that went into this. Tweets, Facebook, the week that Lydia’s world came crashing down and you could follow her mood by the songs she ‘liked’ on YouTube. The amount of effort and care is so impressive.
Thank you to you all.
You made me very happy (and sometimes very emotional) and if I could, I’d put The Lizzie Bennet Diaries on my favourite bookcase so I could pick them up whenever I wanted.*
Of course there was no way to do this post without talking about some of my favourite bits. I have tried to restrict myself and none of these is in order – just random things I think of when remembering The Lizzie Bennet Diaries.
Mary Kate Wiles you are amazing / Seriously can I crawl into the internet and hug Lydia? / When I have a boyfriend I’m buying him a tie. Maybe two / Fitz is many kinds of awesome! / Costume-Theatre!!! / re The Lizzie Trap: Go Gigi! / What’s a Snickerdoodle? / Kiss! (Jane & Bing) / KISS!!! (Lizzie & Darcy) / Pretty / He’s carrying her! *flail* / OMG Lizzie’s face *lol* / The Charlotte costume is kinda perfect if you think about it / New Jane is brilliant / Everyone deserves tea / DARCYBOT / Was it an audition requirement for everyone to be insanely gorgeous? / Dun dun dah! #cliffhanger / Darcy as Fitz vs Fitz as Darcy / SWOON!
*I will be doing something similar when the DVDs arrive.
Thank you @LoriTweets – Love the video!
