series: lizzie bennet diaries


‘Screw writing “strong” women.  Write interesting women.  Write well-rounded women.  Write complicated women.  Write a woman who kicks ass, write a woman who cowers in a corner.  Write a woman who’s desperate for a husband.  Write a woman who doesn’t need a man.  Write women who cry, women who rant, women who are shy, women who don’t take no shit, women who need validation and women who don’t care what anybody thinks.  THEY ARE ALL OKAY, and all those things could exist in THE SAME WOMAN.  Women shouldn’t be valued because we are strong, or kick-ass, but because we are people.  So don’t focus on writing characters who are strong.  Write characters who are people.’ - madlori

Inspired by (x) (x) and (x). Original idea and first eight GIFs made by Tanzila. Last eight GIFs made by yours truly. These awesome people helped to decide which characters would go where: Erin, Rachel, Bethany, Rowen.

We got Lizzie Bennet Diaries stars Laura Spencer, Ashley Clements, and Mary Kate Wiles – a.k.a. Jane, Lizzie, and Lydia Bennet, respectively – to dish about filming their favorite videos, their final days on set, and what it was like realizing just how many viewers their series reached.


Instead of working on a piece for an actual real life art show, I went ahead and inked (with a Windsor Newton paint brush and Dr. Ph. Martin India Ink) and colored (in Photoshop) this thing. Erica, I’m not trying to kill you; I swear.

I decided to go ahead and see what Darcy looked liked in glasses (referenced from Ames by Warby Parker).

I can’t decide which is better. What do y'all think?
