Kissing in the Rain: Rough Drafts

Hey.

Lily stares at the composed text, her thumb hovering over “send”. It’s been six weeks since she last saw James in person, and it’s been raining for the last two of them. There hasn’t been any reason for them to see each other, they don’t have any projects together in the foreseeable future. She’s heard rumors of James signing onto the next Marvel franchise, Lily’s manager has started pushing her more towards YA book-to-film adaptations. Lily doesn’t mind the change of pace, she’s more than just kissing in the rain and period dramas and romantic leads. She can do more, she’d like to do more, she just… sometimes she misses things.

Stupid things, things she won’t bother composing mental lists about because her life is not a 1990’s romantic comedy, and she’s never liked when the heroes of the story come to life-changing romantic epiphanies through addition. When Lily likes someone, she likes them past the point of mathematical explanation.

Made a graph of the worlds or levels of reality of something of the webseries-verse

Arrows are for something that’s canonically fictional in their world, the straight lines are if they’re canonically in the same world. 

Unless it’s a web series where you interpret it as if the source material still exists and the characters are just unaware of their similarities to it (or there’s a KITR Lily and James situation going on), in which case this isn’t necessarily true for all of them. 

This is just done from the information I have, like I haven’t seen Classic Alice and quite a few other web series, including some I didn’t put on the graph, but there probably are further expansions on this you could make with those. 

And some stuff get’s so complicated because in the LBD’s, Lizzie quotes Much Ado (“the fault is in John the Bastard”) but in NMTD Bea makes a references to “Darcy on a horse” , so they’re sort of just both fictional to each other? but I’d forgotten about the LBDs quote when I was making this. 

Also please mentally draw a sparkly line between a tell tale vlog and AOJE, because of Bertha ;) (although it isnt actually ATTV video but you know what I mean… I hope… maybe)

edit: sorry, yes I did mean Only Annie instead of Project Persuasion. But Project Persuasion is still a thing that’s happening so that’s cool! (it’s still fictional in KITR , like Only Annie, but AOJE isn’t necessarily fictional in it’s world)
