->''"The fountain of youth is real, and it's in the blood of dozens of girls across the world. Their secret is known by few, yet desired by all. They are pawns in the most dangerous of games. We are the Resistance. Our mission is to find these girls, and protect them from those who want to use them and destroy them, and we document what happens to them, so that their stories live on. This is the story of one of those girls. We are the Resistance. We will not be stopped."''

''[=LG15: the resistance=]'' is a WebOriginal VlogSeries and a FromTheAshes SpinOff of ''WebVideo/{{Lonelygirl15}}''. It features the efforts of the mysterious Hymn of None as they attempt to fight against the sinister [=LifesBlood Labs=].

Stylistically, it is quite different from ''lonelygirl15'', both in the way it is presented - each "Chapter" is posted in the form of a weekly mini-episode, similar to a regular TV show - and in the overall tone of the program, which is somewhat darker and more action-based.

''the resistance'' may be watched on its official website, beginning with [[http://www.lg15.com/episodes/view/14 Chapter 1]]. A list of blogs in the series with links, including some not available on the official website, may be found [[http://www.lg15.com/lgpedia/index.php?title=List_of_LG15:_The_Resistance_videos here]].

The series proper began on September 20th, 2008, but prior to that the series existed in the form of various prologue videos and an AlternateRealityGame. The series concluded on December 12th, 2008. Due to the economy, the second season has been suspended until further notice. To compensate, EQAL launched a contest to integrate a fan series into canon, which produced ''WebVideo/LG15TheLast''.

!!This series provides examples of:

* ApologeticAttacker: In Chapter 5, Maggie apologizes to a [=LifesBlood=] Labs security guard, who thinks she is saying sorry for running away, before kicking him to the floor.
* CatsAreMean: In "Feline Feariousness", Reed rants about how cats are evil, manipulative, and steal souls, and finishes by urging viewers to "Get rid of your cat, before your cat gets rid of you!"
* CardCarryingVillain: [[spoiler: Sarah Genatiempo]] is revealed to have been this [[TheMole all along]] in the finale. "[[Film/BackToTheFuture Hello? McFly?]] ''I'm evil!'' Completely and utterly evil."
* CorruptCorporateExecutive: Dr. Leonard J Alderman, who doesn't hesitate to steal, kidnap, or torture providing it furthers the company's aims. He claims to be doing the world a service, but it's pretty clear he's really only interested in making a profit.
* DeadpanSnarker: Sarah.
* DumbBlonde Subverted with Sarah. While she can be pretty ditzy (e.g., holding maps the wrong way up), she also repeatedly shows herself to be competent, manipulative, and prone to being a Deadpan Snarker. She also frequently plays up the "dumb blonde" stereotype to her advantage.
* EvilGloating: The finale features a memorable instance of this: "[[Film/BackToTheFuture Hello? McFly?]] I'm EVIL!"
* EvilerThanThou: [=LifesBlood=] Labs along with the good old Order of Denderah, the AncientConspiracy from ''lonelygirl15'' who don't take kindly to their new rivals. LBL don't exactly do anything to endear themselves to the Order either, as Sarah notes:
-->'''Sarah:''' They're so bad that they're stealing from the bad guys! That's like taking candy from a baby. Who is totally evil!
* {{Fanservice}}
* FlashBack: This makes frequent use of these to show Maggie's past.
* GratuitousSpanish: Played straight with "Fun Things to Do in Hiding - Volume Dos!"
* IJustWantToBeNormal: Jonas in the beginning, due to everything that's happened to him in he previous series.
* ImmortalitySeeker: In the season finale, [[spoiler:Sarah]] reveals this to be her goal.
* ImperialStormtrooperMarksmanshipAcademy: [=LifesBlood=] Labs, especially in chapter 12.
* ImprovisedWeapon: Chapter 3, "Trust Fall" includes a scene in which Jonas and Sarah fight off security guards using the camera and the Samsaran Doctrine.
* LiveEpisode: "Signal Lost" was originally recorded live. It appears in an edited form as a scene in Chapter 6.
* MadScientistLaboratory: [=LifesBlood=] Labs, and specifically Maggie's "magical place filled with wonders"
* TheMole: The finale revealed that [[spoiler:Sarah Genatiempo]] was in the Order all along. Some fans considered this a CrowningMomentOfAwesome, others a mistake of gargantuan proportions.
* {{Nerd}}: "Bad Decision?", Chapter 2 features "the sexy nineteen-year-old fact finder also known as... Research Nerd!" (actually Sarah with Nerd Glasses, a collared shirt and tie and her hair tied back).
* NoFourthWall: Part of the premise of ''WebVideo/{{lonelygirl15}}'' and this show, as stated by Word Of God, is that there is no fourth wall. The characters are always aware that there is an audience, and often address them directly. However, the characters do not know that they are fictional, so perhaps it would be more accurate to say that the fourth wall exists it's just transparent.
* ObfuscatingStupidity: A favourite trick of Sarah, carried over from ''WebVideo/{{lonelygirl15}}''. Chapter 3 of the resistance is a good example. Furthermore, while she appears to be The Ditz a lot of the time, she's arguably the smartest member of the TAAG.
* OpeningMonologue: "The fountain of youth is real, and it's in the blood of dozens of girls across the world..." This is shown over a montage of all the natural trait positive characters to appear in ''WebVideo/{{lonelygirl15}}'' and ''WebVideo/KateModern''.
* PeaceAndLoveIncorporated: [=LifesBlood=] Labs. They're not nearly so friendly when the cameras are off.
* ThePowerOfBlood: Infusions of Trait Positive blood can extend the human lifespan considerably, but [[spoiler:Maggie]]'s blood grants total immortality.
* {{Retcon}}: The finale applied a couple of these to ''WebVideo/{{lonelygirl15}}'', such as the revelation that Sarah [[spoiler:was evil all along]] or that Jonas [[spoiler:is a trait positive male]].
* RefusalOfTheCall: This is how Jonas Wharton reacts when the Hymn of None attempts to persuade him to lead the Resistance in the first chapter, "A Call To Arms". In the end, the FBI turn up investigating claims that Jonas has committed acts of terrorism and murder, which forces him into action.
%%* ScrapbookStory
* ShirtlessScene: Jonas. He didn't manage to go four episodes without taking his shirt off.
* ShoutOut:
** Sarah mentions ''[[Franchise/StarWars The Return of the Jedi]]'' and ''[[Film/TheLordOfTheRings The Return of the King]]'' in "Fun Things to Do in Hiding -- Volume Three!"
** The first two chapters contain several allusions to ''Film/TheMatrix'', both direct and indirect.
** In Chapter 12, Jonas whistles part of the theme from ''Film/TheGreatEscape'' before rescuing Reed.
* SlipknotPonytail: Sarah does this in "Bad Decision?", when she takes her hair out of her "Research Nerd" bun.
* SplitScreenPhoneCall: "A Call To Arms" plays with this effect a lot (including a bit at the end where the two cameras meet).
* StrappedToAnOperatingTable: Maggie is shown to have spent a lot of time strapped to an operating table in Flashbacks.
* SyntheticVoiceActor: The Hymn of None, [[spoiler: who later revealed to be the girl in the flashbacks, Maggie]].
* TheTeaser: "A Call To Arms" used the original prologue trailer video as a cold opening, before fading to the OpeningMonologue.
* ThanksForTheMammary: Reed does this to Sarah by [[AccidentalPervert accident]] when he runs to greet her in a dark room in chapter 12.
* TheGuardsMustBeCrazy: The [=LifesBlood Labs=] goons are pretty incompetent. The "Mace in Yo Face!" and "Done Dirt Cheap" incidents are particularly shameful. Although the "Mace in Yo Face" incident is justified because [[spoiler:those weren't real LBL henchmen]].
