The team behind The Lizzie Bennet Diaries will be presenting a week long story campaign bringing Lizzie Bennet back online, almost one year to the day when she started dating Mr. William Darcy.
Dear God. It’s happening.
It was a big Friday for LBD fans, huh?
So after this last post about the PD map, now that we know thanks to nonmodernist that Darcy’s PD is within walking distance of an Apple store, I got curious and googled SF Apple stores. The map actually had three, but I cut the third one as it didn’t fit. We know from ep 78 that it is also within walking distance to the marina, and from episode 58 that Fitz has “a corner office in the city, overlooking the bay. I can see two bridges!” - which would place PD in the area of B. I think. Maybe someone who knows SF will be able to tell me how wrong I am.
(now, to stop procrastinating and actually do the jobs I’m supposed to be doing)
My guess is that PD’s main campus is by the Yerba Buena Gardens (you’ve read my fic, so you probably know that) but Fitz’s comment confused me. I eventually decided there are smaller offices for partner companies around the city.
guys, i’m so obsessed with maps :)
Darcy’s PD is within walking distance of the A Apple Store on that map, for the reason that Christine gives above, which basically comes from the photos for the old PD website. As for Fitz’s comment… I think he either has a magical office with a 200-degree view from his corner windows, or he’s being overly optimistic about what angle he’s at when looking at those two bridges. We know he works at the main PD campus at least some of the time, since he’s available to plan shenanigans with Gigi at the drop of a hat. Maybe he just means the bridge over the coy pond on the PD campus…..

I can show you on a map exactly where the Pemberley Digital offices are. I know because of reasons. (Hint: they are walking distance from the SF Apple Store).
(edit: C&C is actually in Hunsford, CA but it’s very close to Palo Alto.)

Kady Morrison’s debut novel, Juniper Lane, won’t be on store shelves for months, but already her fans number in the six figures. They’re familiar with her work from Archive of Our Own, a fanwork site where Morrison writes fanfic under the handle gyzym.
Her publisher, Big Bang Press, is well aware—in fact, it links to her Ao3 page directly from its website. For a conventional publisher to acknowledge, let alone link directly to, a writers’ fan fiction is unprecedented, but Big Bang specializes in original works by authors recruited from the fan-fiction community.
The overlap between the professional and fan literary communities is one of those uncomfortable secrets no one denies, but few discuss. Fan fiction is mostly published pseudonymously, and the stigma surrounding it often causes writers to keep their professional and fan identities carefully compartmentalized.
Literary publishing’s uneasy relationship with fan fiction has been complicated by the realization that fandom is a huge potential market—one stocked with both prolific authors and enthusiastic readers. But tapping that market is a dilemma few publishers seem quite prepared to engage.
That’s where Big Bang Press comes in.

The series continues to be successful because they are changing the way people watch and immerse themselves within their favorite works of art — which fans were already doing online with fan art, fan mixes, role-playing communities, etc. Even after a year, no other web series has come close to popularity of the LBD.
My sister Izzy is in town visiting and that got me thinking about family. The layers of history, the kind of intimacy that only comes from knowing someone since childhood mixed with the surprises of finding out who they’ve become as an adult. If you’re as lucky as me and are still close to your siblings, then you know what I mean when I say that this relationship is a work of art. A painting on a reused canvas. A tapestry. A photograph capturing a moment in time that is different every time you look at it because you’re different, changing and growing. So I had this in mind when getting dressed today and nothing was better for capturing my feelings than this slim fit, pink and blue confection of a dress. The pastel palette of colors keeps it light and airy, the cut is elegant and professional, but the design reminds me of a Monet water lily or a van Gogh starscape. It’s abstract and leaves a lot open to the imagination. Pair with light colored, complimentary heels and a sturdy, industrious satchel in delicious mint. Who knows what the day might hold and what it will mean!
