Creator/LindsayEllis was ''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; 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/XMen}}'' "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]].

She created the site Website/ChezApocalypse to host hers and her friends's videos which lasted until Blip's closure in 2015.

Lindsay, Nella, and Elisa also wrote ''Literature/ViridianSaga'', 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}}'' [[JustForFun/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). Their videos on the writing process can be seen [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6UWCbCRVpVo 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 analyzes and compares various fictional characters' different adaptation incarnations throughout time and mediums, a format she had introduced in (what would end up being) the final episode released under the ''Nostalgia Chick'' banner.

Oh, and the show also [[TropeNamer named]] BigLippedAlligatorMoment.

Despite the title, the Nostalgia Chick is no more, and she should just be referred to as Lindsay.
