Yes. And somehow, through unspecified circumstances, so was Connie? Although those two aren’t directly related. But yes.

The Lizzie Bennet Diaries are a modernization of Pride and Prejudice as well as the first major use of a multi-media platform for storytelling. The characters had tumblrs and twitters and instagrams on which they interacted with the audience as the characters.
The Lizzie Bennet Diaries also brought to light and popularized the efficacy of performing meta analysis of the text within the source material itself, especially through the form of hypermediation in which media is linked closely through indirect sources (for example, the way that Lydia’s video diaries explain the tension in Jane’s instagram posts).
Performative and metatextual media can function on multiple levels simultaneously, with the storyline casting light on itself and the canon text, but also the metatextual decisions made in the writer’s room, or the impact of the media in society at large.
Miraculous Ladybug has character instagrams, and many of the staff have twitters that they use to publicly discuss the series and its contents and details. Astruc is, himself, a character in the show.
There has been a movement with the popularization of social media that servers to deteriorate the wall between author and consumer. This has brought back to light the idea of God’s Word vs Death of the Author, and has blurred the lines between canon source material and externally derived content that is not valid by the premise of the text itself.
Miraculous Ladybug can no longer be consumed in its entirety simply by watching the traditional source content (i.e. the show). Character development and filler occurs in snapshots across multiple instagram posts and comments. Plot holes and details are explained and expounded on in staff-written twitter threads.
Furthermore, other writers and animators are engaging in this very publicly performed tug of war on the character storylines. For example, Chloe’s redemption has been publicly fought over. This is all performed for the viewer to see, and it informs their reading of her character, but also the reading of the artists, but they know they’re performing it.
Taken in the current atmosphere and revolutionary changes in storytelling, this creates an environment where the readings of the story and the staff are creating metatextual commentary on each other and behaving performatively, which requires audience participation with multiple levels and medias of storytelling whether it was intentional or not.
Miraculous Ladybug is performance art.
i also don’t understand it i’m fully butchering what it’s ~really about~ for the vibes and the prospect of charles’s complete lack of self-preservation instincts leading him to go on a five hour shrooms trip on his own in the desert while daniel just Vibes in some gold body paint and learns Lessons about letting his ego go a little
It’s a little surreal that I was able to celebrate my birthday how I was this year. Not just the no yelling and everything but the fact that it happened in September on my birthday weekend and on my birthday. I’m so used to November.
i have like +600 drafts someone kill me
A Jaskier-centric Eragon AU with Jaskier as the first dragon rider in centuries. Witcher still exist, and Geralt is just trying to get this stupid bard he met (and who someone hatched a dragon egg on fucking accident) to Kaer Morhen before King Stregobor finds out that there’s another Rider to challenge his reign.
So before finishing the Dani/Jorge flashback, I wanted to do something with a bit less of work. So here is a scheme of the sexual/romantic relationship in the motogp soap opera
I started watching Together with Me, and it’s not even a love-triangle, more like a love-heptagon?
