A blog dedicated to the web-series created by Pemberley Digital.

I also talk about various other web-series
as well as classic novels and their films.
(North & South is very likely!)

My email stopped working so I don’t know when/if my Lizzie Bennet DVD set is coming, does anyone know if I have to verify anything or should my DVD set just be delivered?

Nope you don’t have to verify anything. The email just says they’ve shipped, and if you’re in the US there’s a link to track. So it’s not really a big deal.

Y’all.

Y’all.

Look what I found in my mailbox today! And it was after the longest long-ass day ever, too (Wednesdays are always long, but when you’re a church musician/choir member, the Wednesday of Holy Week is just long-ass long).

You just have no idea how much I needed this, especially right now.  I’m in the process of moving my mother from her home of 35 years to live here in my town, which is, well, a bit traumatic for me. It’s the leaving the childhood home forever thing that’s getting to me, and it would’ve made me emotional anyway, but since my dad died unexpectedly in July of 2012, it’s just really hard. I feel like I’m leaving him behind. I know that’s not true, and I know it’s the right thing to do for my mom, But grief isn’t always logical, so…

So to get this, now? 

LBD is one of the things that helped me cope with my dad’s death. I remember the day he died, going home from the hospital in shock, going into my childhood bedroom, and having Lizzie be the one thing that grounded me when my entire world had been shattered. I watched episode 33 — “Nope, He Doesn’t Like Me” — which had aired that day, late that night, curled up, broken-hearted. I’m pretty sure it was the only thing that gave me reason to smile that day. I’m pretty sure LBD is the only thing that gave me reason to smile for the next few weeks. So there’s that.

And there’s Mary Kate Wiles and her portrayal of Lydia, and how that made me face my own “Wickham”  

LBD was a healing thing for me, in so many ways. And it continues to be a healing thing for me. I will always, always be grateful. It’s definitely part of why I love the characters so much, why I love the series so much.

For those who have received DVDs…

May I ask what the special features are?!

2014 Lizzie Bennet Diaries Calendar

I was originally designing this just for myself, but some people expressed interest in having one for themselves, so here you go! (I really do not think I’m any good at graphic design/photoshop, though, so lower your expectations accordingly.)

You can download the files here from my dropbox, or, if you’re lazy like me, you can order a printed version here. (I haven’t used this website before, but the reviews were good. I’ve ordered one for myself, and I’ll post pictures when it arrives if you want to wait and see how the quality is.)  Enjoy!

Classic Alice is a new web-series about a college student that decides to live her life according to classic literature, for better or worse. Her first book? Crime and Punishment. Well, I think we can all agree that allowing Raskolnikov to make your life decisions might not be the best of ideas! But it makes for a great show, and you can watch the first 6 episodes here:http://bit.ly/classicalice

Now, here is where Alice NEEDS YOUR HELP: In order to keep this amazing series going, the creators have launched a Kickstarter campaign! Every dollar helps so, if you can contribute with just U$1, DO IT. If you can spare U$5, U$10, U$25, that’s great. But if everyone subscribed to this page donates just one dollar to this amazing project, they’ll be able to go beyond their goal by thousands.

So every dollar makes a difference, help out: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/katehackett/classic-alice

Nessa’s note below made me think about what awesome AOJE team could adapt next. (Not wanting to push AOJE out of the way or anything but I’m feeling sad already and will want to have something to look forward to!)

I really like the gothic/spooky bits of AOJE and I think they should go in that direction. My vote would be for The Woman in White - spooky, intriguing, romantic and with the best heroine ever in Marion Halcombe. 

Northanger Abbey would be another fun one but I think that PD has got first dibs on Austen adaptations :)

What do you think?

what about North and South? (the Elizabeth Gaskell story, not the american civil war drama)
I love that story and like Jane Eyre it has a darker tone than Austen. And the whole plot about manufacturing ethics and poverty and everything is still revelvant.

*cries at the thought*

Yes!!

You should check out Jules and Monty on youtube! It's a vlog based on Romeo and Juliet. It just stated and could be pretty awesome! :)

I don’t think I will ever want for web series thanks to my Tumblr friends!! Thank you!! I’ll check it out :)

Whaaaaaaat..

Belatedly watching the new AoJE to find they asked my question! And they may even work it into the story which is just… mind-blowing.

Really glad to get an answer to that question though, I just really wanna see Jane play! 

And as suggestion in the YT comments, how amazing would it be if Jane submitted a clip for Harriet’s music club?! Fangirling material for those of us who live in AoJE/Pemberley world, and great cross-promotion for the AoJE team!
