Hi Hi Hi. What is this spreadsheet thing you tagged me in? What are we doing? Just summarising episodes of webseries? I’M SO CONFUSED PLEASE CLARIFY (illuminate?) THIS FOR ME.

Once upon a time there was a webseries called the Lizzie Bennet Diaries. It was new and wonderful and I wanted to play in the ball pit for many extra hours. So I summarized every episode in a Google docs spreadsheet. I may have gone a little overboard.

Then came the end of LBD, and lo, it was sad.

But then came Sanditon, and I was inspired to continue to spreadsheet. And then AoJE (which I realize is not, or at least until now has not, been your thing). And after a bit of that came the Time of Great Flakiness, and I stopped adding data to my spreadsheet. And in that time a loud wailing went up from every person who cared deeply about my ongoing obsessive maintenance of a spreadsheet listing every episode of every webseries I ever watched ever. That is to say, from no one.

But now a lovely user named robinvenetia has dared to disturb the universe by creating a spreadsheet of NMTD episodes! Yay! Let the rejoicing commence anew!

The idea, I guess, is that for a sufficiently obsessed fan, a spreadsheet of episodes is a pretty nice thing to have around. You can direct people to the episode in which so-and-so did such-and-such, thereby seeming super smart or ridiculously good at memorizing obscure details. You can answer questions and settle arguments and do all the things that the net, generally, has made possible, such that only old people even remember the days when you had to sit around with your friends like dumbasses trying to remember the name of that movie that Keanu Reeves was in that one time.

So I tagged some people that have exhibited obsessive love of webseries in the past, on the theory that one or more of them might be fooled into agreeing to contribute to the creation of spreadsheets listing episodes of beloved webseries.

One of those obsessives was you.

And they all lived happily ever after.
