Fantasy Heroine series

I don’t know how I stumbled onto Jill Bearup’s work on Youtube, but she’s amazing. She’s an actress who does stage combat and loves to make fancy dresses with pockets compatible with hiding secret weapons. She also reviews combat sequences in films.

Most recently, she started posting a story told through a sequence of Shorts that became so fun and popular that it just kept going. Check it out!

“The Fantasy Heroine vs. The Writer” by Jill Bearup, Season 1:

The story becomes more elaborate in Season 2, with more daring escapades and a masquerade ball.

By Season 3, I was hooked. I don’t think I missed an episode as she posted her daily Shorts.

Season 4 brings us to The End (For Now), she says, as she’s writing the book into, well, an actual book. You will notice after episode 3 that more begins to happen off-stage, which she’s included written up and posted on her (highly affordable) Patreon. Links below.

“Legal Reasons” takes place between episodes 3 and 4 in this Season 4, off-stage between Robin and Leo. “The Writening” takes place just after episode 9. And “There’s just something I need to do…”, after episode 11.

It’s the time of year in the Northern Hemisphere to cozy up in front of a fire and watch/read lovely things, so I hope you enjoy the series!
