Lindsay Ellis, aka [[ArtifactTitle The Dudette]], is the Nostalgia Chick. She was one of three winners of a contest on Website/ThatGuyWithTheGlasses to recruit a DistaffCounterpart for WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic, along with That Chick With The Goggles and WebVideo/MarzGurl. Like [=MarzGurl=] her concept has drifted into other waters (though she hasn't given up on 'girly' movies completely); her videos nowadays talk about the themes surrounding the movie more than the movie itself, which stems from Lindsay's Master's degree in film criticism. There have been a few {{story arc}}s too, which can be summed up in three tropes: FoeYay [[note]]The Chick breaks out of the GirlShowGhetto to review whatever she likes, leading to a power struggle with WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic[[/note]], TheDogBitesBack [[note]]Much-abused sidekick Nella is taken over by a SuperpoweredEvilSide and wreaks vengeance in a form of the ''{{WesternAnimation/X-Men}}'' "Dark Phoenix Saga" (This is also where the character of the Nostalgia Chick really consolidates)[[/note]] and StalkerWithACrush[[note]]RealitySubtext leads to the Chick developing an obsessive crush on WebVideo/ToddInTheShadows and going to great lengths to try and make him love her (while he remains fixated on [[Creator/AllisonPregler Lupa]])[[/note]].

Her website, Website/ChezApocalypse, can be found [[http://chezapocalypse.com/ here]]. Her blog is [[http://wegotclass.wordpress.com/ here]], her official {{Website/Facebook}} is [[http://www.facebook.com/pages/The-Nostalgia-Chick/167999883240474 here]], her {{Website/Tumblr}} is [[http://lindsayetumbls.tumblr.com here]], and her {{Website/Twitter}} is [[http://twitter.com/thelindsayellis here]]. A list of reviewed works, which also includes the shows by Lindsay's friends Elisa Hansen (also host of ''WebVideo/VampireReviews'') and Antonella "Nella" Inserra, is [[TeamNostalgiaChickList here]].

Lindsay, Nella, and Elisa also wrote ''[[Literature/ViridianSaga Awoken]]'', a parody of [[YoungAdultLiterature teen-oriented]] {{paranormal romance}}s, originally known by the working titles ''Fifty Shades of Green'' or ''Sexy Alien Book''. The plot can be summed up as "''Literature/{{Twilight}}'' [[XMeetsY meets]] the Franchise/CthulhuMythos", with the Bella-analogue Andromeda "Andi" Slate (known during writing as "Lego Brick") [[CrackFic falling for one of]] [[DidYouJustRomanceCthulhu the Old Ones]], who has taken the form of a handsome, brooding teenage boy named Riley Bay. The book is being written by an eight-person team composed of Lindsay, Nella, Elisa, and five ghostwriters picked from the community, under the {{Portmanteau}} pseudonym of "JustForFun/SerraElinsen" (derived from their last names); they had previously fielded ideas for it on [[https://twitter.com/SexyAlienBook this Twitter page]]. Their videos on the writing process can be seen [[http://thatguywiththeglasses.com/videolinks/team-nchick/50-shades-of-green here]].

On 10 January 2015, Lindsay announced that the time had come for her and Creator/ChannelAwesome to part ways. Though Ellis would keep doing videos, the "Nostalgia Chick" name would be retired and she would separate to pursue her own projects. See the announcement for it [[http://namebrandlindsay.com/2015/01/10/farewell-channel-awesome-and-a-pre-emptive-faq/ here]]. The show morphed into ''Loose Canon'', in which she reviews various fictional characters' different incarnations, a format she had introduced in the last ''Nostalgia Chick'' episode made before announcing her departure.

Oh, and the show also [[TropeNamer named]] BigLippedAlligatorMoment, which the Chick is [[{{In-universe}} quite proud of]].
