* BigSisterBully: To Lydia to an extent, without realizing it. Lizzie's constant criticism of Lydia, making clear how much she prefers Jane and occassional SlutShaming get to her younger sister much more than she realizes. Then again, Lydia fullfills her side of GloriousWarOfSisterlyRivalry just as passionately and frequently mocks Lizzie's eternal singledom and supposed nerdiness.

* BowtiesAreCool: Worn by Lizzie & Co when playing him. It fits as he is a curious mix of {{Hipster}}, GentlemanSnarker and SociallyAwkwardHero. We have been told that he wears scarves, indoors. In episode 61 he wears a bowtie onscreen, and Lizzie mentions that he did wear a newsboy hat once, making his costume relatively accurate.

Added DiffLines:

* PetTheDog: He gets multiple moments of sincerity and kindness that serve to show that, while he's annoying and pompous, he's not a bad person. He tries to help Lizzie out when it comes to meeting Catherine, listens to Charlotte's advice re: the company, shows genuine interest in Lizzie's vlogging style, and speaks fondly of Maria Lu.


Added DiffLines:

* RelatedInTheAdaptation: Inverted again. In the book, Mr. Collins is a distant cousin to the Bennets, set to inherit Longbourn after Mr. Bennet dies. Here, he's a childhood friend that grew up to be kind of a dick.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Adorkable}}: Socially awkward, bowtie-wearing, intelligent, and slightly pompous, mixed with absolutely ''terrible'' attempts at flirting with Lizzie. Highlights include attempting to impress her with his speaker-setting-up-skills, and fake-texting when he sees her coming towards him.

* BeleagueredAssistant: She becomes this to Mr. Collins after accepting his job offer. Mr. Collins is... demanding, to say the least. However, Charlotte takes this in stride, and is mostly quite happy with her situation.



* VitriolicBestBuds: A mild type 2 with Elizabeth. They can argue and disagree, but it's all too clear that they love each other. Lizzie called her my almost-sister in one of her video description.

* {{Adorkable}}: Lizzie cannot stand him, but his pompousness antics come off as rather funny and cute, since he has good intentions and is quite entusiastic about Lizzie's work.

* BenevolentBoss: For the most part. While he does sometimes make life difficult for Charlotte, and can be overly-demanding, it's never out of malice, and overall he treats her quite well.



* DitzyGenius: To call him clueless would be generous, and he's not ''nearly'' as smart as he thinks he is. However, he is ''not'' dumb; as Charlotte points out, he's very successful in his field, and isn't always wrong.



* EnforcedMethodOfActing: In-universe, when he gets into the costume theatre with Lydia and is performing Darcy agains't Lydia's Lizzie. It contains of Lydia's being hateful at Ricky and Ricky being confused why and trying to make peace to no avail - which seems to be an accurate portrayal of Lizzie's and Darcy's relationship at this point.

* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: He's self-centered, rude, a KnowNothingKnowItAll, and he's prone to insensitive remarks. Despite this, he's not ''really'' a bad guy -- he does hold both Lizzie and Charlotte in genuine regard, his respect for his boss is entirely sincere, and he honestly doesn't seem to realize how rude he can be, and can even be kind of nice at times. Lizzie outright admits in the novelization that, while he's definitely still obnoxious, he's not so bad, deep down.

Added DiffLines:

* MarriedToTheJob: By his own admission.


Added DiffLines:

* {{Workaholic}}: His work is more or less the only thing going on in his life, next to his fiance, who may or may not exist. However, Ricky seems perfectly happy this way.

Added DiffLines:

* OhCrap: When she realizes she accidentally admitted to watching Lizzie's videos when she said she hadn't seen them.


Added DiffLines:

* SayingTooMuch:
-->'''Lizzie:''' ...You ''have'' been watching my videos.\\
'''Caroline:''' No, I haven't. That's why I need you to catch me up!\\
'''Lizzie:''' You have been watching my videos, and now you wanna know what's in Darcy's letter.\\
'''Caroline:''' ''(too quickly)'' No, I don't.\\
'''Lizzie:''' ...I believe an appropriate response would've been, "What letter?" ''(smug grin)''

* CompositeCharacter: With Mary and Kitty being reinvented as a cousin and a cat respectively, Lydia's character takes a bit after both of their book selves:
** She is given the general "foolish, but good natured" aspect of Kitty, and her ending follows book's Kitty's route (she gets closer with her sisters and learns to be more sensible) than book Lydia's (marries Wickham, remains obnoxious).
** Although their personalities couldn's have been more different, she takes book's Mary's role as TheUnfavourite of her immediate family, who has no best friend-sister (which Lydia was with Kitty in the books) and doesn't get much interest from her parents (Lydia was her mother favourite in the books).
* CuteButCacophonic: Lydia is adorable, but LOUD.



* TheUnfavorite: Especially in the novelization, it's clear that she's her father's least favorite daughter, though he loves her. By the end, though, he's begun taking steps to fix that, since her feeling so isolated in her own family is what caused so much of the trouble.

** The adaptation takes away Lydia being Mrs. Bennet's favourite, and also changes Kitty to a cat, leaving Lydia without the sister she was closest with. With Jane and Lizzie being closest to each other, father getting along with Lizzie best and the mother mostly concerned about "the oldest unwed daughter of the house" (or just the one being currently the closest to catch a man), poor Lydia really seems to place as the last in everyone's concern chain.
