Can we celebrate November 20th as the airdate anniversary of the greatest webseries episode ever (or at least ONE OF the greatest ever, even if you don’t love AoJE)? Personally, if I ever had to pick a “Webseries Appreciation Day”, it would be then. Not because there weren’t more significant dates prior and not because it’s the most dramatic and not because nothing since has had any significance. But because I legitimately believe that “Kidnapped” marked the new ways in which webseries could go. They could go outside. They could go “off plot”. They could realistic without sacrificing interest. They could introduce music in a way that was significant to the story and significant to the viewer. They could show off a specific landscape/cityscape (not simply through transmedia).
Basically, “Kidnapped” was and remains revolutionary in the field and I just want to remember it always.
So, there’s this girl I go to school with. Let’s call her B. B is the kind of person who talks loudly and does questionable things in public places (twerking, screaming, cussing, being disrespectful in general) then makes fun of people who she doesn’t like. And she will use ANY reason to dislikes someone. She hates me only because I told her to stop making fun of someone’s shoes. And she’s honestly a b*tch.
So, I had to go to the locker rooms to get something for the gym teacher, and I happened to spot her phone. I know its hers, because she constantly has it out and films random people. I also noticed her brand-new earbuds that she had been bragging about. They were neatly wrapped around the phone. Earlier, she had been making fun of someone’s body shape. I got to work.
In about thirty seconds, the earbuds were tied, tangled, and knotted into a ball shape. It would take forever to untangle it. I left it where I’d found it, grabbed what the teacher needed, and left.
I could tell she’d found it when I heard a scream coming from that general direction. She was freaking out and yelling, and pitching the greatest hissy fit ever. She must’ve decided one of her ‘friends’ did it, because she started cussing some girl out right in front of the teacher. And then she attacked her. She’s suspended for two months.
In the Wizarding World, they have a spell for periods. And muggleborn girls find out about this and freak out because it’s the greatest thing ever. When they go home for summer, they have to go back to pads. Until one muggleborn girl gets so angry on her period that she just uses the damn spell. She’s terrified that Ministry officials will show up to give her a warning. They never do. Unbeknownst to her, the ministry official responsible for giving her the warning was tackled to the floor by Amelia Bones. Days later, a bill was passed, allowing underage magic for feminine hygiene.
