tiyire: (Fanlore adding fandoms)
Are you watching The Lizzie Bennet Diaries? Why not? I love it so much, and yet it´s difficult to talk about it because all I want to do is excitedly flap my hands at people. Lizzie! And Jane! And Charlotte! And Lydia, oh my god Lydia. And Mary, and Maria, and Bing Lee who is so cute!
...this doesn´t explain very well why you should watch it. So. The above link goes to the main homepage, because the actual story is spread across youtube, twitter, tumblr, and various other sites - I´ve never seen something that took advantage of the internet´s myriad of storytelling possibilities in this way before, and I love it. And yet it´s not difficult to follow and you can choose how much of it you want to track. Maybe one of the best words to describe it is "fresh" - it feels real, current, modern, lifelike, not at all like something written a long time ago. This is both testament to the writers´ and actors´ skills and to the wonderful story Jane Austen wrote.
LBD is the first thing that makes me seriously consider getting a youtube and/or a tumblr account, just because that´s where this fandom is mainly happening and I want in. I guess it´s only a matter of time. Every new episode, of the main storyline or one of the others, surpasses my expectations and makes me happy every time. :)

So of course I made a Fanlore page about it! Very stubby because I´m not really in the fandom yet. Please add anything if you know more? The Lizzie Bennet Diaries
(And if you have a Tumblr account, feel free to spread the word ;) )
