I MADE A GIF! (Now watch the Lizzie Bennet Diaries)

12 Jan

Look! It’s (the fifth variation of) my first gif!


Yaaaaay! I still have no idea how people make super intense fancy gifs, but hey, gotta start somewhere.

In case you are wondering, this gif is from a wonderful web series called The Lizzie Bennet Diaries, which, if you are not watching already, you need to go watch IMMEDIATELY. Pride and Prejudice is my favorite book, but when something can induce this much fangirling over a 200 year old novel, you know it’s good. And it’s SO GOOD. Basically in this version Lizzie is a grad student, Jane (in the gif pretending to be Darcy..there’s lots of roleplaying in this) is in fashion, Lydia is in college and is a party girl, Mary is their cousin, and Kitty is a cat (sorry Kitty). Charlotte Lucas is Charlotte Lu, Charles and Caroline Bingley are Bing and Caroline Lee, etc. etc. etc. Lizzie is filming the videos for a grad school project, and there are lots of other fun modern updates of the storyline. There have been almost 80 episodes (plus Lydia’s spinoff videos), but they’re only 3-6ish minutes long each, so not that hard to get through! Unless you are my sister, in which case you will act like it is an impossible feat. BUT ANYWAY. Watch them! You won’t regret it! And if you do, well, I’m not sure we can be friends.
