    I'm sincerely *nervous* about catching up the Lydia vlogs because it's so obvious where this is going to go and it's going to be TRAGIC and it's going to massively crush her spririt (for all of 5 secs) and I can't stand to see Lydia crushed at all. When she and Lizzie had that fight at xmas, I had an actual knot in my stomach over it.

    Damn you, TLBD! I don't know why the characters in a web series set up like this seem more real than characters on tv. Weird.

    Thinking about going back through to rewatch Lizzie's vlog from the beginning, to imagine what Darcy might have actually thought when he got caught up on them. His twitter is only a tiny bit illuminating on the subject. I do love that he kept a little hat in his office on the off chance that he might be someday asked to play himself in Lizzie Bennet Costume Theater.

    And yes, I also realize that wondering what a fictional character thought about watching fictional videos by another fictional character is ten kinds of CRAY.



    Actually surprised me to find out that these were created and produced by two guys. I guess I always thought of Austen-y stuff as belonging to us gals rather exclusively.

      YOWZA.

      Lydia and Wickham have so much chemistry it should be criminal.

      And the amount of time they spend making out on camera just reminds me that we have yet to see Lizzie or Jane make out with anyone.

      ETA LYDIA!!! He is PLAYING you perfectly!!! Run!!!!!

      The actress who is Lydia is the best in the series, I think. She's doing such a good job with this particular part of the arc.

      Arrrrgh. Killing me, Lydia.

          Why is this episode even on air? Doesn't really make sense she'd post it. However, shoulder touching! I liked this one a lot.

            This series really feels more to me like theater than tv. It's storytelling with the most basic of props and no special effects AT ALL--it's COMPLETELY character driven. And with the characters addressing the audience so much you feel like you are part of the story. Genious!

            Why is this episode even on air? Doesn't really make sense she'd post it. However, shoulder touching! I liked this one a lot.
            We almost HAD to have this episode dada--without it there would really be no reason for Darcy to get pulled into the Lydia/Wickham drama. But hearing Lizzie voice her guilt over not exposing Wickham's true nature to Lydia forces him to feel the same and makes him part of the story in a way that wouldn't have resonated if he'd just watched it on her vlog. Now he will be compelled to ACT. Plus Lizzie has posted other episodes (the fight with Charlotte and with Lydia to name a few) that were deeply personal too so it does make sense that she'd post this one too.

            and yes, I also realize that wondering what a fictional character thought about watching fictional videos by another fictional character is ten kinds of CRAY.
            Dude! It's what we DO! Have you met us?

              But I do agree that Lizzie would most likely (IRL) *not* post a video that says there is a sex tape about her baby sister out there somewhere. The vid might have been filmed, but it would not have been posted.

              Looks like most of the folks involved have a theatre background.

                And then there was fanfiction: http://archiveofourown.org/works/657600


                And the amount of time they spend making out on camera just reminds me that we have yet to see Lizzie or Jane make out with anyone.
                True. With Jane and Bing we've mostly had *eye chatter* <--hee!



                Lizzie and Darcy have engaged in *hand porn*





                Both of these are so much more romantic than Lydia and Wickham making out on the couch

                    Hand porn is great and everything, but I'll be VERY disappointed if we don't get at least one making out session between the two couples.

                    Have you seen this? http://www.lizziebennet.com/domino-e...demonstration/

                    It's before the latest Lizzie video but very interesting. An app that uploads everything even if you don't want it! Ha! Maybe that's how we'll see Darcy dealing with Whickam!

                      Yeah, I thought that was clever twist. And it's also how we got to know that Darcy was planning on asking Lizzie to go out to the theatre.

                        Great article with the main actresses: http://www.leakynews.com/catching-up...ennet-diaries/

                        They seem genuinely sweet and happy to be doing this. And it's clear that they have thought a lot about the characters.

                        AC: No, I think that my Lizzie is true to the heart of Lizzie Bennet but I think one of the main ways she’s different is that she vlogs. I mean, that was actually the hardest part about the character for me to get a hold of at the beginning, because it takes a certain kind of personality to want to put yourself out there like that and expose that much of your life and that much of the lives of people around you. In the books she tells everyone about what Darcy did to George, but once she learns her lesson she never tells things the other way. Here there is a very large amount of sharing. She’s like, “Here’s all the details about my sister’s love life, and here’s what I think of my little sister!” She doesn’t really have secrets very much, and that, I think, is very different from the book.
                        This also lead me to Jane's pinterest board, and all of her sad pins after Bing left: http://pinterest.com/LooksByJane/miss-it/

                            Ha!

                            Hadn't thought of it quite like that. Still not watching The Carrie Diaries, though.

                            I'm also laughing at dada spoiler tagging something that is basically from a 200 yr old book. If anyone doesn't know what happens next in P&P by now . . .
