[[caption-width-right:350:From left to right: Elisa (Maven, Makeover Fairy), Lindsay (Nostalgia Chick), and Nella ([[ShapedLikeItself Nella]]).]]

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 WebVideo/ObscurusLupa)[[/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]].

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