So, for those of you who just can’t keep track of the amount of cross-media that helps telling the story of The Lizzie Bennet Diaries (I know I can’t), this post is for you. And! For those of you who don’t know what TLBD is, PLEASE GET UP ON THIS RIGHT NOW. This information is mostly on their website, but this will hopefully just make the whole thing easier. And if something is missing then I’m sorry and nope, Google + is not one of those things. I mean, it’s g+, who even uses that thing? Lizzie is with me on that.
First of all [for those of you that are new here]: What is TLBD?
The Lizzie Bennet Diaries is an adaptation of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice, and is told by Lizzie Bennet using video blogs (vlogs) that go up every Monday and Thursday on youtube. Other websites like twitter and tumblr help telling the story, and most of the characters can be found on these websites (and others, as listed below). So basically Lizzie tells a story, other characters show up on her videos and there’s costume theater and the whole life-ruining experience goes from there.
So here we go.

- Tumblr Posts [a list of posts from the character’s tumblrs that are relevant to the story-telling].
