Vivian [=McMillan=] is a 16-year-old lesbian from New York City. Unfortunately, her dad was a firefighter who got a respiratory infection due to 9/11, which means both of them have to move out into the suburbs with her maternal aunt, away from Vivian's girlfriend Aster. The move also drives Vivian back into the closet, with only new friend Archibald, a young African-American artist interested in comic books, aware that she is gay, and that only because he guessed. This causes tension with both her Aster and her childhood friend Sophie, who doesn't like it that Viv's been hiding things from her...

This web series was co-created by playwrights Tina Cesa Ward and Susan Miller from Ward's original work. There are three seasons. The first episode aired in 2008 and the series finale aired in 2012.
!!This show provides examples of:
* {{Aesop}}: ''"You never know what's going on with anyone else"''. Even the people you love and who love you.
* AbortedArc: [[spoiler:Several throughout the series are dropped by the end or just disappear. Archie and his homophobic Dad, Sophie potentially being gay of bi, the guy who's into Vivian even though he knows she's gay, never fully developed and apparently forgotten. The only things really settled are Vivian and her immediate family (her Mom and Aster).]]
