Characters (In Order of Appearance)

There is without a doubt that these characters have changed in the past year. Appearance, personality, importance... they've all developed in some way under a webcam.

0016-Bree-icon.jpg A home-schooled member of a secret religion chosen to participate in a Ceremony.

After being rejected by Bree, he began to bury his feelings through alcoholism as well as find new love interests (which also failed). He is now on the run with Jonas and Bree. After the fiasco with Alex, he seems to have moved on and is now developing a relationship with Sarah. There is contention as to whether he is over Bree or not. Went into hiding following the events of The Ascension. He was tracked down at the end of the Day of Atonement.

One of the biggest aspects of lonelygirl15 was Bree's room. After all, her room is the home of the infamous Grillz, Cookie Contest and Proving Science Wrong Series videos. Perhaps that is why the most significant of changes this past year occured in the video Life's Not Fair - the last video to feature Bree v-blogging from inside her room. Since November 2nd, 2006, Bree and Daniel have been on the run from the Order for a total of 27 weeks, more than half a year.

There is no doubt that Bree's religion has been a topic of discussion since the series began. With clues such as a shrine to Aleister Crowley as well as Bree's announcment that she was chosen to participate in a mysterious Ceremony, fans of the show knew that the people behind her religion were up to no good.

With a year under the show's belt, its now more clear than ever that Bree's religion is a religious cult known as the Hymn of One, a brainwashing cult apparently practiced by small communities around the world. Worse still, is the knowledge that Bree's religion appears to be a recruiting arm for a secret organization commonly called the Order of Denderah, that includes other organizations as well, such as OpAphid - its former enforcement branch.

As for what is to take place at the Ceremony and why Bree must partake in it is still a mystery, though recent videos show that one reason why the Order wants Bree is that she is considered "trait positive."

The Friends of LG15

Last and certainly not least, there are those that witness the many (sometimes illegal) exploits of BDJ. Last summer, these viewers of lonelygirl15 had the humble honor to witness for the first time Bree journey through life. As one year has come to passed, these witnesses have become something much more. They've become friends to Bree, Daniel, and Jonas and are now even a crucial aid to them: a community offering their insight and providing that crucial-but-ever-important task: being willing to say, we're here for you.
