Web Video: LG15: the resistance
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 Web Original Vlog Series
and a From the Ashes Spin-Off
. 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 Chapter 1
. A list of blogs in the series with links, including some not available on the official website, may be found 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 Alternate Reality Game
. 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 LG 15 The Last
This series provides examples of:
- Shirtless Scene: Jonas. He didn't manage to go four episodes without taking his shirt off.
- Slipknot Ponytail: Sarah does this in "Bad Decision?", when she takes her hair out of her "Research Nerd" bun.
- Split-Screen Phone Call: "A Call To Arms" plays with this effect a lot (including a bit at the end where the two cameras meet).
- Strapped to an Operating Table: Maggie is shown to have spent a lot of time strapped to an operating table in Flashbacks.
- Synthetic Voice Actor: The Hymn of None, who later revealed to be the girl in the flashbacks, Maggie.
- The Teaser: "A Call To Arms" used the original prologue trailer video as a cold opening, before fading to the Opening Narration.
- Thanks for the Mammary: Reed does this to Sarah by accident when he runs to greet her in a dark room in chapter 12.
- The Guards Must Be Crazy: 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 those weren't real LBL henchmen.
