What makes a great literary web series kiss? What makes us get lightheaded, warms us up, and causes our knees to vicariously buckle?
We love how Lizzie Bennet, Emma Woodhouse, Vic Frankenstein and Alice Rackham all initiated their kisses. Kyle Walters, doing double duty as Peter Pan and Sanditon’s Ed Denham, gets bonus points for technique. After all they had fought through, Carmilla and Laura’s kiss was a triumphant declaration that love conquers all. And after 95 episodes of waiting, could anything top Dizzie Day?
Here at Webheads, we had a lot of trouble picking our choice for Best Kiss. And judging by how the vote is spread out, you did, too! As we went live, Lizzie and Darcy were in the lead, with Algy and Cecily running a very close second. But whichever kiss is your favorite, we Webheads are the winners, because we get to watch them all.
ALL GOOD THINGS
Just as we find out that Jack and Algy are brothers, In Earnest says goodbye. At least we get to see Algy star in “Guys and Dolls.” Watch the heartwarming finale, or watch the series from the beginning. Then, go read The Importance of Being Earnest by Oscar Wilde, and see for yourself why it is widely considered the most perfect comedy in the English language.
