If you like Carmilla you might try...

So, as someone who wants to write webseries for a living, I’ve watched my fair share of shows. These are some of my favorites, in alphabetical order. Since webseries actors have a tendency to pop up in other productions, I’ll list notable people as well.


All for One - Produced by KindaTV

A literary series based off of the three musketeers, A4O follows the story of Dorothy Castlemoore as she attempts to rush the sorority Mu Sigma Theta, and the problems (and hilarity) that ensues. (PLUS, though it is non-canon the fandom has a theory that Inseperables members cookiemonster, canonicallyace and worstdanceever are Laura, Beth and Lizzie, respectively.) I give this show a 5/5 queer rating for gender swapped characters, canonically queer ladies and a bisexual character who says the word bi! 

Notable Actors - Alejandra Simmons, Angie Lopez


Couple-ish - Written by Kaitlyn Alexander and Sharon Belle

Couple-ish follows Dee and Rachel, as they attempt to trick the Canadian government into thinking they’re dating so Rachel can stay in the country. I give this show a 5/5 queer rating for sheer awesomeness.

Notable Actors - Kaitlyn Alexander, Sharon Belle


Haunted or Hoax

Follow best friends, Casey and Jac, as they attempt to determine whether Grantham House is haunted, or if it’s all a Hoax. I give this show a 5/5 queer rating for an all female love triangle.

Notable Actors - Natasha Negovanlis, Sydney Kondruss


High’rd Help - Written by the fandom’s own Olivia D'Agostino of Fool’s Gold renown

Ava is an awkward high schooler who gets some extra-ordinary help from Charlie, who is possibly the world’s WORST guardian angel. I give this show a 4/5 queer rating for canon bisexuality, and so many lady kisses.


Last Life - Produced by Puma Squad

In a world with good and evil witches, Sloane and Taylor are two soulmates with questionable pasts that must find each other in each life they live. I give this show a 3/5 queer rating for lady kisses.


Lizzie Bennet Diaries - Produced by Pemberley Digital

Emmy award wining and one of the first major literary series, LBD is a modern retelling of Pride and Prejudice where Lizzie is a grad student vlogging as part of her thesis. There are several companion series throughout so make sure to try and watch them all. I give this show a 0/5 queer rating, for straightness, but it’s still good.

Notable Actors - Ashley Clements, Mary-Kate Wiles, Maxwell Glick


March Family Letters - Produced by Pemberley Digital

A literary series based off of Little Women, MFL is about the March sisters as they send video letters to their mother. I give this show a 4/5 queer rating for a canonically ace character (Beth), and lady kisses.

Notable Actors - Alejandra Simmons, Natasha Negovanlis


Matchless - Written by Olivia D’Agostino

Alex would be a typical college student, if her dad wasn’t the devil. Follow her as she gains new powers, and tries to save the world. I give this show a 3/5 queer rating for lady kisses and bi characters. 


MsLabelled - Produced by KindaTV

All Ella wants to do is be a fashion blogger, but being an assistant for a fashion magazine will do for now. I give this show a 2/5 queer rating for a few queer characters. 

Notable Actors - Sydney Kondruss


Muzzled: The Musical - Produced by Will Save Productions

In a world where singing grants you power, the Blackhearts are a faction of people who must wear a magical tattoo called a muzzle to keep them from singing. Malfalia, the daughter of the leader of the Blackhearts, just wants to sing. This star studded cast is really remarkable. I give this show a 0/5 queer rating, but again, it’s still very good.

Notable Actors - Ashley Clements, Mary-Kate Wiles, Maxwell Glick, Lauren Lopez (of Starkid), Joey Richter (of Starkid), Jeff Lewis (of The Guild), Ashly Burch (Voice actress most known for Chloe Price), Juliet Landau (Buffy’s Drusilla) and the series was created in part by Matthew Mercer (Voice actor most known for Chrom in Fire Emblem or McCree in Overwatch, DM for Critical Role) 


Squaresville 

Zelda and Esther are two high schoolers trying to find themselves in a boring suburban town. I give this show a 1/5 queer rating for eventual queerness.

Notable Actors - Mary-Kate Wiles


Till Lease Do Us Part - Produced by The Gay Women Channel

Each season follows a different lady-loving-lady couple as they are somehow stuck in a lease. I give this show a 4/5 queer rating for all-around queerness.

Notable Actors - Season 2, Angie Lopez, Winnie Clark (of Almost Adults)


This list is by no means the end-all-be-all of web-series, and the rating system is literally just my own opinion. but, like I said, these are some of my favorites. Stop by my inbox if you have suggestions for me to add or if any of the links are broken. Happy watching!

Hey friends, here is my brand-spanking new acting reel. I went back and forth about whether I should put it up on my youtube channel because it feels a little out of place there, but the truth is that I’m pretty darn proud of it, and I got permission from all the productions on here that haven’t released yet to share it as I wish. 

Major thanks to seanpersaud for editing it. Hire him for all your reel or non-reel editing needs.

Including scenes from The Sound and The Shadow, I Ship It, Squaresville, The Middle, Review, The Lizzie Bennet Diaries, Hello My Name is Frank, and Bridge and Tunnel.

Hope you enjoy.

“this town is wasted and alone”

We need stories. Stories are important. There is nothing silly or dumb about relating to them and feeling attached to them. They help us see ourselves and others in new ways. They help us feel our feelings. They make us laugh when we feel low. They help us realize dreams and conquer fears. They give us a fuller understanding of the world. - Ashley Clements (x)

thesheshe  asked:

Hey, I've just started and finished NMTD and LLL (literally I've binge watched them through twice since I found them like 4 days ago) and I'm about to start Zoos Job. But I was wondering if you had any recommendations for other web series, as these were my first, and I LOVED them.

Ooh yay! Web series recommendations! There are so so many out there but these are my faves:

The Lizzie Bennet Diaries was the first one I watched and still one of my absolute favourites. It’s a modern adaptation of Pride and Prejudice. 

Emma Approved is the next modern adaptation by Pemberley Digital after The Lizzie Bennet Diaries and it’s based on another Jane Austen book, Emma.

Carmilla is yet another modern adaptation (there’s really a common theme here) of Sheridan Le Fanu’s vampiric novella, Carmilla. 

The Guild is slightly different because it’s not an adaptation but an original comedy by Felicia Day. It’s about a group of online gamers and could quite possibly be my favourite web series I’ve ever watched.

Squaresville is also an original comedy and is about two best friends growing up. It’s only got two series and as far as I’ve heard there isn’t another one coming which is sad but definitely still worth the watch.

Kissing in the Rain is a really lovely short series by Yulin Kuang. It revisits the different kisses in the rain between pairs of actors and follows their stories. She makes a lot of short films as well and her work is definitely worth checking out. I especially love I Ship It, starring two actors from Kissing in the Rain.

There are definitely more that I just can’t think of at the moment but this should be enough to keep you going for the moment! Thanks so much for asking, I love talking about web series! 

P.S. I’m currently watching another modern adaptation, this time of Anne of Green Gables and it’s called Green Gables Fables. So far I love it so you should check that out too if you have the time!
