the aoje

Things I miss from webseries: Characters clearly moving through time. Jane’s hair clearly grew in length between her first episode and her last in AoJE. She was growing, advancing. The show took place over more than a year, and it was clearly visible in Jane’s physical appearance. The same was true of GGF season 1, or parts of PGG (which is so far probably the longest running webseries??? Already passed two years!). Even LBD showed Lizzie genuinely passing through time. FMWL. They all showed the character changing in a way that made the shows feel… more in-tune with the actual shifts and stumbles of the world. 

Don’t get me wrong: I love the cohesion of how shows like NMTD or other tightly filmed shows look. I love that these shows are able to get made under the assumption that they’re filmed over a limited window. I get it. But there’s something beautiful in watching a characters hair grow, or get cut, or change color, or watching their face change with the years, their make-up style develop, the room around them shift slightly… I kind of miss the way almost all of the older shows weren’t static, that they struggled with cast changes or prop issues along the way. And while the newer shows are probably technically better, breaking boundaries in terms of filming and creativity and more interesting framing… I kind of miss feeling like a vlog is really a vlog, and that the person I’m becoming attached to is growing and changing just like I am.

All the Web Series

Hey everyone!

So my lovely sister suggested that I make a masterpost of all my favourite web series, so I started off by listing all the web series I’ve ever watched………and there are a lot. So many that I think I might have an eensy bit of a problem. But moving swiftly along, here’s my own not so little list of all the webseries I’ve watched all-the-way-through and want to ramble about in alphabetical order. As always, these are my own thoughts and opinions, and you are perfectly entitled to have different ones. Because this list is so long, I’m putting it under a read-more (cause otherwise this would seriously fill your entire dash) but above the read-more I’m gonna put a list of the web series I talk about so you can see if there’s something you want to check out :)

The Literary-Inspired Baking Video

This trope doesn’t really need explaining at this point, because it’s in literally EVERYTHING now, but why is that? Why has such a random thing become the most iconic aspect of the literary-inspired webseries genre?

The first LIW to include a baking video was Welcome to Sanditon, but the first one to follow the format that would later become more characteristic – in which baking happens but the focus is on the characters (or occasionally the plot) – was The Autobiography of Jane Eyre. This completely fabricated baking episode contained important character development for Johanna and was also extremely entertaining. The recipe was in the description, but the recipe wasn’t followed in the actual video, and unlike Clara’s Welcome to Sanditon episodes, it wasn’t meant to teach anyone how to bake anything.

The next LIW baking episode was in Green Gables Fables and is (I think) unique on this list in that it was adapting an actual plot point from the source material. So, while it counts as an LIW baking episode, it’s not quite as much of one as some of the others.

Next, of course, was the baking episode of Nothing Much To Do. As with most of NMTD, it wasn’t really revolutionary at all, but it cemented the mechanism for how these sorts of videos are done. In it, Beatrice and Hero actually do bake while also bantering around quite a bit and preparing us for Hero’s birthday, an important plot point coming up next. It’s a completely unnecessary video. It doesn’t teach us anything new about the characters. It has nothing to do with the source material. And yet what would we have done without it? It’s one of Beatrice’s and Hero’s most delightful vlogs (and the last one before everything becomes horrible), and therefore completely necessary.

The next LIW baking episode is also the most famous one: George Squared’s “A Baking Video” from Call Me Katie. If you’ve seen it, there’s no need for me to explain how amazing and iconic this episode is, and it was the first time an LIW used a baking video as a framework for a bit of actual plot (that was either original or had nothing to do with baking in the source material). 

After this best of all baking episodes, everyone in the community has regarded the baking episode as a mandatory part of every LIW. Almost all of them are very emotional. Some actually manage to create a baked good. Others are actually plot. A few do both. 

After going through all of this, I have decided that there are two main types of LIW baking episodes:

1) The video where something actually gets baked and nothing much else happens, but it’s ridiculously adorable and/or angsty the entire time.

2) The video where baking may or may not get accomplished but the video is actually part of the plot.

The first type is more common, but the second type is becoming increasingly popular in a lot of series (including the two most recent baking episodes, in The Emma Agenda and Middlemarch: The Series). The George Squared video also fits into the second category. 

So what is it about baking videos that this community loves so much? Is it that they help contribute to the realism of these fictional characters’ YouTube channels? Is it that it’s just immensely satisfying to watch people bake? I mean, I care hugely about realism, as you can probably tell from my reviews. I also love watching videos of people cooking/baking things that I am never going to actually make, so…

Honestly, I think it’s a bit of both. Whatever form they take, LIW baking videos bring us closer to the characters. They make us feel good. They’re sweet, quite literally. And isn’t baking an emotional experience for all of us?

The absolutely lovely @greatestvoyagehistoryofplastic made a playlist of all the LIW baking episodes, and you can watch that here:

You laughed as he wrapped an arm around you and pulled you to his side. Getting lost in his gaze for a moment, you pecked a kiss to his lips and then flicked your eyes to the side to see someone approaching.

“You ready for this?” you asked Bucky, seeing the tight line of his lips.

Taking a deep breath, he grasped your hand and nodded. “Time to face the music.”


Stepping forward a few feet with you beside him, Bucky stopped in front of the goateed, dark-haired Captain. He looked vastly different than how you had seen him previously in his office and in court, which was always in a finely tailored suit. Instead, he was currently dressed in jeans and a black band t-shirt with an unzipped hooded sweatshirt over it. It was a jarring sight, like seeing your teacher outside of school or something. Bizarre.

“Captain Stark,” Bucky greeted him, extending his hand.

“Barnes,” the Captain replied, shaking the man’s hand roughly before releasing it and turning toward you. “Ms. (Y/L/N), it’s good to see you in one piece. Mostly,” he taunted, nodding slightly to the wound on your side.

“I’ve had a few days to check up on you, Ms. Y/N (Y/L/N).” You shuddered to hear your name tumble from his mouth. “God bless the internet. You’re quite the altruist…doing good deeds and helping people. That’s what you want to do, right? To help people?” he asked you, gesturing in your direction with the tip of the knife, causing you to flinch.


“Good. Cause you’re gonna help me out. You’re gonna walk out of here with me. Willingly. Or I kill everyone in this whole damn place.”


Terrified as you had felt since stepping into the office, your blood ran even colder now upon hearing this threat. Time slowed to a crawl. It felt like hours had passed when in reality, only minutes.

“What?” you gawked in fear. “You want me to…come with you?”

“That’s right. You wanna save your friends? Come quietly and I’ll spare them,” he spoke matter-of-factly.

Heart hammering in your chest, you placed your hands on the back of the office chair, steadying yourself. Mind finally beginning to function in survival mode, you considered your options. Screaming for help would have people rushing in, but he was probably faster. He could strike you down and then take even more lives in a desperate attempt at escape. On the other hand, refusing to come with him would prolong the ordeal and agitate him, possibly leading to a similarly bloody scenario.
