Perhaps, after all, romance did not come into one’s life with pomp and blare, like a gay knight riding down; perhaps it crept to one’s side like an old friend through quiet ways; perhaps it revealed itself in seeming prose, until some sudden shaft of illumination flung athwart its pages betrayed the rhythm and the music, perhaps…perhaps…love unfolded naturally out of a beautiful friendship, as a golden-hearted rose slipping from its green sheath.
This happened when I decided to count up the numberof webseries I’ve watched which has turned out to be a LOT. Some of them I’ve liked more than others but every one is unique in its own way. Many use transmedia as a secondary way to tell a story and others have used the vlog-style formatto show their interpretation of a classic novel whilst some have created a
television quality series. Every one of them is worth watching! There are so many I haven’t had the chance to see yet but here’s my list of every
webseries I’ve watched so far:

Tanner had the amazing love confession ensemble with **dress shoes** picked out before he came to Canada. What a dude.
Mandy and Tanner practiced individually for this scene, but never together, so the very first time Gilbert confessed his love to Anne was what you saw in today’s episode. Harsh, real, awkward, painful - for Anne and Gilbert, for Mandy and Tanner, for all of us sitting in that room.
Before we filmed, Tanner was pacing everywhere and wouldn’t sit down, and Mandy was re-reading the script on her phone and asking about line changes. It was tense and stressful. Lucy started playing the ukulele and we sang “5 Years Time” (Noah and the Whale), which was spontaneous and strange - it’s not like we usually sang before filming - but it was a good pre-filming ritual and felt like a promise to Anne and Gilbert.
And then we filmed. This is after Solange called “cut” and Tanner came back inside:
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)
Her name is Blake and she’s studying Theology and Physics, I think, which I didn’t even know was a thing that people actually studied until today, unless they wanted to become a pastor or something. The Theology thing, not the Physics thing, obviously.
Sometimes I remember that when I first got the part as Gilbert Marie described him as an athletic, flirtatious, smooth talking, intelligent alpha male complete with a lumberjack- esque wardrobe but I’ve turned him into a lurpy sweater wearing goon with a Star Wars obsession and the flirting ability of a water chestnut
