You can tell by the comic sans that this is legit business.

That’s right ladies and gentlefolks, it’s time for the second official Melbourne Tumblr meetup!

The first meetup back in December ‘12 was a total success, with no less than thirty people turning up, and resulting in multiple meetups over the last few months.

Well, it’s about time for another official meetup, wouldn’t you say?

If you live in Melbourne, Australia, and have a blog, no matter what you post, you are welcome to come down and have a fun day of scavenger hunting and general fun with people who won’t judge you for screaming over Benedict Cumberbatch’s face - In fact, they’ll probably join in!

What: A scavenger hunt! After we meet up, everyone will be separated into teams. The scavenger hunt should take about two hours, before we meet back at Melbourne Central for lunch!

When: 12pm onward (finishing around 4pm or 5pm), Saturday June 29th 2013

Where: Meet under the clocks at Flinders Street Station, walking around Melbourne CBD, then lunch at Melbourne Central

Bring:

  • Money for lunch (optional, if buying)
  • A MYKI (optional, but preferred just in case)
  • The best tumblr-related clothing you can find!
  • Laptops, drawing tablets, phones, iPads, and otherwise are all welcome at this event! Just note that you will be responsible for them

RSVP: It would be awesome if everyone could RSVP, that way I know how many people to expect. The Facebook event doesn’t work for some people, so if it isn’t letting you join that, please use Padlet.

Thank You, Lizzie Bennet Diaries: A Poem

Oh, Lizzie Bennet Diaries, how I love thee,

I love you more than Jane loves tea,

More than Lizzie loves costume theatre,

More than Darcy loved Lizzie in November,

The way you make me laugh and smile,

The way you make me hateful and vile,

The way you make me cry and bawl,

The way none of your characters have taken a fall, [unlike Sherlock Holmes]

The way you brought the characters more to life,

Has had people screaming “Darcy, I’ll be your wife!”,

The way you make weekdays oh so much greater,

(And the occasional weekend, although for me they come later),

And how you’ve adapted the story to fit,

I like your story arcs more than a bit,

With Lizzie, oh Lizzie, our leading girl,

With her remarks about Darcy making her want to hurl,

And Lydia my baby, the audience’s little sister,

How she proved to herself that she doesn’t need a mister,

Jane, the eldest, so kind and so sweet,

Her style and beauty is quite hard to beat,

Crazy Mrs Bennet, most insane of them all,

Searching for husbands with her pretty pink shawl,

Bing Lee is adorbs! Cares oh so for Jane,

Though when he didn’t beg for her it was quite a shame,

Wickham the beauty, or should I say beast,

He’s the one that most people seem to like the least,

Caroline is beautiful though her hair outshines her,

For ages her evil side wasn’t discovered,

Darcy the lobster, the newsie, the robot,

Lizzie thinks he’s a snob but we all know he’s mostly not,

I love how Charlotte is portrayed in this show,

The way you’ve allowed her character to grow,

Though how can I not mention Gigi the great,

We’re going to get married – you know it’s our fate,

I know I’m not mentioning everyone here,

But when I say that I love you all I am most sincere,

The characters are fantastic, the actors so good,

Find such beautiful people? I didn’t think you could,

Your crew hasn’t been mentioned up until now,

Which is ridiculous really since you make me go “wow.”,

With your talent and work I cannot begin to thank you for,

I appreciate it so and can’t wait to see more,

I’ve met so many brilliant people because of the series,

Discussing ships, characters, plots, and wild theories,

LBD, you’ve brought together a good bunch of friends,

We’ll be sticking together way past the end,

The talent that fans have is absolutely insane,

Knitting things, editing pics, GIFing sets of Bing and Jane,

I’m so lucky and appreciative to have met you all,

As happy to know you as Darcy is tall,

From talking to MK and Ashley and Chris,

To dancing and laughing, I’m going to miss this,

I’m going to miss the twitter updates and pics,

All the plot twists that you’ve thrown in the mix,

I’m going to miss the way Lydia says “Whaaaat!”,

The way Lizzie portrayed her mother as so nuts,

All the little smiles Darcy threw at Lizzie,

Did you think we wouldn’t notice? Please, you must be dizzie,

I’m going to miss the fantastic writing,

When I rewatch episodes I sit there reciting,

I’m going to miss all the plot twist reactions,

I’m going to miss the fan interaction,

But of all the things I’ve said, there’s one thing that stands out,

The one thing I think that your show is about,

So thank you to everyone, and as it comes to an end,

Thank you, Lizzie Bennet, for being my friend.

[This is my entry for Ali’s (havelogicwilltravel) signed novel contest, but also something I’ve been wanting to write anyway. This just gave me the excuse to do it. This is going to be, as far as I know, my one and only LBD thank you post. I am not fabulous at putting words together just yet (which sucks seeing as what I want to do for a living is write), but I can rhyme things and put them to a kind of beat, so writing this in poem form works better for me than a long, beautifully worded text post. Besides, I like doing things differently. Here you go, Ali. You asked for eloquent words, I gave you a poem that was mostly written on the train and to a soundtrack of Kimbra and Macklemore.]

I JUST WANTED YOU ALL TO KNOW THAT I LOVE EVERY SINGLE ONE OF YOU OKAY

I LOVE YOU, FAN WHO ONLY WATCHES LIZZIE VIDEOS AND HAS NO IDEA ABOUT LYDIA AT ALL

I LOVE YOU, PERSON WHO WORKS ON THE LBD, WHETHER IT BE WRITING OR MAKING STUFF OR FILMING THINGS

I LOVE YOU, OBSESSIVE CRAZED FAN WHO HAS THE CHARACTER’S TWEETS ON NOTIFICATION AND STAYS UP ALL  NIGHT TO WATCH THE NEW EPISODES

I LOVE YOU, ACTOR/ACTRESS WHO SAYS THINGS IN FRONT OF THE CAMERA AND MAKES FACES AND MAKES US FEEL SO MANY THINGS

I LOVE YOU, PERSON WHO ONLY JUST STARTED WATCHING THE LBD AND IS UP TO EPISODE ONE OR ELEVEN OR TWENTY TWO

I LOVE THIS FANDOM SO MUCH AND MY LIFE WOULD NOT BE COMPLETE WITHOUT EVERY SINGLE ONE OF YOU

YOU GUYS MAKE MY LIFE NOT INCREDIBLY LAME
