Videos with Sarah

Sarah is a main character in the lonelygirl15 series and also the sister of Taylor. Taylor first mentions and talks about her in the video Practice Sucked :(. She was also referenced several times on Taylor's MySpace. They both are from Zavalla, Texas. Sarah has, since her first appearance in the series, become a major character in lonelygirl15 and is one of the main characters, traveling with Jonas and Daniel.

Background

Bree, Daniel, and Jonas met Sarah at a park in Crazy Emo Chick, which marked Sarah's first appearance on video. Sarah's behavior in this encounter was clearly more mischievous than Taylor had earlier implied.

As far as anyone can tell from the video, the original plan was for Bree, Daniel, and Jonas to meet Taylor a local park. The plan soon changed, however, as Sarah showed up instead, scaring the trio by saying she had a gun on Daniel's back, and demanding the camera be shut off.

During the "blackout," Sarah apparently explained herself, and revealed that the "gun" on Daniel was in reality a tube of lipstick. Sarah also had another chance to surprise Daniel and subsequently "pantsed" him. Needless to say, Daniel's first impression of Taylor's sister wasn't friendly.

While Sarah's been willing to help, she was never very concerned with knowing the full story, having said (on the in-character chat), "to be perfectly honest I sort of zoned after "and then they made me perform a fake ceremony to fool Daniel." Nevertheless, she was disappointed to see Daniel and Jonas leave Texas.

As graduation came closer, Sarah decided to go to a party with her friends. She blogged about it on her MySpace and later posted pictures, which Taylor considered offensive. She was so offended that she titled her next video blog, My Sister = Slut.

After Taylor apologized for being insulting, Sarah had a talk with their mother, which according to Taylor sounded like, she was trying to convince mom to let her go somewhere. The following morning, Sarah left, only to reappear days later alongside Daniel and Jonas in California.

Adventures with BDJ

Sarah overtly and aggressively pursued Daniel in a romantic and/or sexual context. Although Daniel was initially hostile toward her, he soon warmed up to Sarah and began to responding to her overtures toward him. However, Sarah soon became annoyed that Daniel was taking things too seriously and had become clingy. This small rift between the two began to grow when Sarah dropped Issac Gilman's files in the water. While Sarah claimed it was an accident, Daniel soon believed her actions were deliberate.

With the help of Spencer, Isaac Gilman's son, the teens began focusing on the rescue of Bree. Although Taylor and Sarah both protested that they did not want to go, they went anyway. While trying to get to Bree by 11 am TAAG ran into a Watcher who chased them, ramming into their car and forcing them to crash and run for their lives. Sarah became separated from the rest of the group, but Nikki Bower came to the rescue just in time. After their rescue, Daniel went and received information that the Ceremony was in the middle of nowhere. They also realized that their serum was broken in the crash and Sarah left to find the other vial. Finally, Sarah made it back to them with the serum in hand and with the remaining five members of TAAG together, they pressed forward, finally finding Bree, but only in time to see her die.

When Sarah witnessed Daniel's grief caused by Bree's death, she shouted to Bree that "Daniel was always yours . . .", and that she couldn't "compete with a ghost."

After Bree

Soon after Bree's death, Sarah & Taylor returned to Zavalla, Texas where Sarah returned to her old promiscuous ways, as noted by Taylor in Sluttiness Prevails. Sarah seemed to no longer care who she dated, though Taylor argued that she still harbored feelings for Daniel. She had also returned to showing her distaste of video blogging.

Although at first, Sarah lied saying she had lost the serum which Daniel and Jonas requested for Emma, Sarah returned to help TAAG when she saw that the they truly needed her help. She began to develop a relationship with Emma and helped her when she wanted to make her own decisions about becoming trait negative.

Sarah making her classic "annoyed face"
Helping Emma escape back to her parents, Sarah moved into a rented house with Daniel and Jonas, making it obvious that she was bothered by Daniel's new girlfriend, Mallory's constant presence in their new home. That may also be the reason why she took the opportunity to leave the house by going on a stakeout with Jonas. Although she made very clear she considered it stupid to go to LaRezisto with Emma, there was nothing she could do from home, so she helped Daniel with his Student Film instead, playing the role of Rebecca. She also vowed to be more honest in the future, but when she tried to tell Mallory the truth about Daniel (probably willfully accepting the possibility she might break up with him afterwards), she learned that Daniel had already come forward to her, making for an awkward moment, and leading to even more hostility towards Mallory. When her suspicions about LaRezisto were confirmed, and Emma was gone, she was reasonably angry, and even went as far as questioning Jonas's honesty as a whole.

Having been left at home once more, Sarah, out of necessity, spent some more time with Mallory, helping her with the contest to re-cut Daniel's film and carving pumpkins with her. After the guys returned, however, she and her opinion were, once again, disrespected. After Daniel screamed at her and he, Jonas, and Sonia didn't even ask her to come along to save the Ceremony baby, Sarah openly voiced her opinion that the guys were sexist. This, however, only brought her mockery from Jonas and Daniel, which she called unfair.

Showing her own deceptive side, and, once again, seeding trouble in paradise, Sarah later talked Mallory into having direct contact (as close as butt-touching and kissing) with Chris, in order to get information about Emma out of him. This failed, however, as the seemingly important information they got only led them to a joint venture presentation, where they barely escaped Lucy and some Wyman security personnel.

Sarah had another chance to show her deception/acting/damsel in distress skills when she was, once again, used to distract a guard at Pleasant Manor (impressing both Daniel and Jonas, who didn't think she could pull it off), and it was her who found a way inside. While they did leave the manor unharmed, the experience inside the manor, coupled with Daniel's seemingly indestructible relationship with Mallory, seemed to have broken her will to continue, to the point where she was openly asking herself "What the hell am I doing here?". She soon found the answer was continuing to investigate and fight the Order, although she expressed her feelings that the Lullaby Project, a collaboration of the HoO, the Wyman Foundation, and Verdus Pharmaceuticals, may be a good thing. She went with Daniel and Jonas on a stakeout, following a truck from the Lullaby Project, the Order's newest guise. After following the truck to a nearby truck stop, Sarah and Jonas disappeared, leading Daniel to believe they had been abducted. Days later, the two had not turned up and Daniel posted another video in which Taylor appeared and had also not seen her sister, increasing Daniel's worry. The next day, though, Jonas managed to find an internet connection with WiFi and post a video, showing Daniel that they had been stuck in the truck for four days. Sarah bugged Jonas boredly during this time, and then started to break down, yelling that she needed to get out. The next day, Carl, Chris, and Claudia rescued them from the truck, which Sarah was, at first, reluctant to accept.

Helping at the Lullaby Project

Sarah and her new friend Jennie at the "Global Lullaby Village"

The two were taken to a Lullaby Project Prenatal Care Center in the middle of the desert, where they were toured around the encampment and given food and shelter. After spending a few days with these people, Jonas and Sarah decided to bike back home. When Jonas became irritated with Sarah, he left her stranded in the middle of the desert, and when he came back for her, she was gone, leaving her bike behind. Later that day, Taylor posted a message saying that she would be coming back to L.A. via the bus. Several days later, however, Sarah made a video explaining that the Lullaby Project employees picked her up in a truck after Jonas left her and she had decided to stay at the Prenatal Care Center where she was helping out with a new friend named Jennie. Sarah once again reiterated that the Lullaby Project seemed to be genuinely there to help people, and that she hadn't .."felt that good about doing something in...ever." Days later, Jennie was introduced on camera where she and Sarah explained a little about the "Global Lullaby Village", which is what Claudia calls the Lullaby Project encampment which is constantly relocating.

Sarah later recounted an experience she had in the Song Circle at the Lullaby Project where she heard something that she thought to be her "eternal song". She remained skeptical about the religion but believed that the song she heard was real. Since then, Jennie began posting videos some which further fueled worry about Sarah. Nearly two weeks went by before Sarah posted another video, explaining that she really felt her eternal song and that she felt closer to those within the HoO than she did with her biological family. After Jennie realized the questionable methods used by the Lullaby Project, she decided to ask Jonas, Daniel, and Emma for help in saving Sarah, and after a very disturbing chat with Sarah, the gang headed to Mexico where they witnessed a brainwashed-looking Sarah being "welcomed" to the family by Carl, they then took Sarah back by force as she protested telling them she belonged there.

Back in California

While Sarah was initially angry about having been taken from the Lullaby Project (losing some sleep over it as well), she quickly returned to normal, and soon began a number of illegal projects with Daniel, including breaking into Verdus Pharmaceuticals's offices, helping the community break into Ted McKinley's match.com account, and breaking into Ted McKinley's apartment. After the boys had handed over the memo stolen in that mission to the community and bugged Lucy's car, it was her who saved Daniel and Jonas from an armed Watcher by knocking him out. She then went with the others to William Porter's house block, trying to save Emma a second time, after Lucy had escaped with her the first time.

After Daniel and Jonas rescued both Emma and Gina, the six of them went to a rented cabin near Big Bear Lake. Since then, Sarah seemingly resumed her relationship with Daniel. Although, tension began to run high as a result of Sarah assuming that Jennie was interested in Daniel, they were able to put it behind them and Sarah was said to have been playing beer pong with Gina while Jennie and Jonas got close. Sarah later gave forum members the challenge of figuring out what Gina had drawn. As a result, Sarah suffered another outburst from Daniel, who told her that she had violated Gina's privacy. The whole gang had to once again relocate when they spotted the Shadow of William Porter following them. Back at the rented house, Sarah shared her room with Gina who stole her sketch paper. After much arguing over Gina's wish to find Bree's adoptive mother, Sarah and Daniel decided to stay behind while Jennie and Jonas decided to take Gina to try to find Bree's mom. The next day, Sarah went to the store, and while there, she was approached by a store clerk who told her a "muscled-out psycho" had been asking about her and her friends. When Sarah got back to the rented house, Daniel yelled at her, saying all she did was put the team at risk.

While Jonas tried to wake up Jennie, TAAG learned that the Shadow found their home and tried to attack Jennie, but the Shadow chased Jennie out of the rented house and was killed. The next day, the group blew off steam at the beach.

Recently, Sarah revealed that she had slept with Carl while in Mexico, and he wrote her a cheesy love note in Spanish in the book he gave her. It called her his "Sacred Spirit."

Attitude

Sarah's attitude has changed a lot during her presence in the series; originally a dark emo/gothic type of character with an extremely slutty side (which, according to Taylor, was "totally an act"), she has lately been seen to be a lot more optimistic, reflecting in a more colorful set of clothes.

Notes

  • As Sarah currently has no YouTube account, she uses Taylor's account, soccerstar4ever, to post videos.
  • According to Taylor, Sarah has a pet ferret who, according to a blog on her MySpace, is named Colossus, after a book. The book in question is most likely a collection of poetry by Sylvia Plath.
  • Her age is unknown, but from her MySpace blogs, she appears to be a high school student. Taylor mentions in the video I Know What Boys Like that in freshman year Sarah was a cheerleader, and in her blog, she says talks about the prom and graduation, implying that she just completed her senior year.
  • Many of Sarah's gestures carry sexual connotations; initial opening of her shirt, showing her leg flexibility, rolling her tongue, and tying a cherry stem into a knot with her tongue. This trend of sexual openness is prevalent throughout the series.
  • In her blog she talks frequently about her relationship with a boy named Jay. This is believed to be a reference to former LGPedia admin JayHenry, also known as JayHank.
  • She has an affinity for doughnuts. "I like doughnuts" is a phrase she uses often. In her blog she also mentions she is sad because there is no doughnut store by the new cabin after they rescue Bree.
  • The character of Sarah was created by Glenn Rubenstein. [1] He based her name off of the pseudonym girls often use when calling into the show "Loveline." [2]

Etymology

Sarah means "lady" or "princess" in Hebrew. It was the name of Abraham's wife in the Old Testament. She became the mother of Isaac at the age of 90. Her name was once שָׂרָי (Saray), but God changed it (Genesis 17:15). [3].
