* Spot of Tea: Jane is Canadian, not British, but her love for tea is one of the creators’ ways of paying homage to the story’s English roots (much as in ''WebVideo/TheLizzieBennetDiaries''). In her first video, Jane says she drinks immense amounts of tea, and says she's probably made entirely of Earl Grey, chamomile and mint. Her tea habit comes up in dozens of episodes – in one, she tries a new chocolate mint flavor and jokes about how she’s "going wild". She is seen using it as a coping mechanism both when she is sick and when she is feeling especially emotional. In episode 82, when she’s upset about the funding being cut to the daycare where she works, Jane {{lampshades}} her affection for this trope:

** In "A New Age of Aluminium", Warren reminds one party guesst her memorable impression of "duck" from their previous party (episode "Charades"), though during the game he insisted that the word must be "goose". It was a cuckoo anyway. We find out the woman's name is Luisa "Lulu" Eshton.

** In episode "Charades", one of the clue was a film or book, six words, there is flying, something with eggs and birds and nests, none of the words is goose... They couldn't figure it out, but Jane says in the vid description that she's pretty sure it was ''Literature/OneFlewOverTheCuckoosNest''.

** Mr Rochester is thirty-sh and his actor looks very young. The age difference between Jane and Mr Rochester was rather important, but the gap is still noticeable.

* AllWorkVsAllPlay / FoolishSiblingResponsibleSibling: The Rivers sisters share a downplayed version of these dynamics. Diana is the motherly straight-A grad student with all her priorities in order; Mary is free-spirited, whimsical, and impulsive. However, this trope is only used to contrast the personalities of the two sisters; one is not portrayed as being better than the other. Nicely epitomized in a snippet of episode 75, when Jane gives them each $100,000 – Diana wants to use the money to pay off her student loans; Mary wants to dedicate a room of her house to tights.

Jane Eyre is a young lonely woman who received her bachelor's in nursing, and decided to begin a second degree in childhood development. She has complicated family relationships and she feels trapped in her routine. She realized that there is much more to ask from life than what she had, and she decided for a clear and radical cut: new career, new home, perhaps even new Jane?

* GenreSavvy: Jane is savvy from the start. She seems to know that adventure awaits her and that she is in a dangerous situation, and she goes along because she doesn't quite realize the extent. She keeps uploading what happened to her on her vlog as a safety net.



* LovableCoward: Though dignified and generally very nice, Jane is easily scared. However, given the tone of the story and the orientation her suspicion has taken, she is probably a combination of GenreSavvy and ProperlyParanoid.

Added DiffLines:

* LanguageFluencyDenial: Suzanna-Maria Ramirez Gonzalez pulls this tactic off successfully. She speaks only Spanish in front of Jane or Grace Poole. Grace genuinely believes she doesn't understand English and this way, she bothers her way less. Suzanna eventually reveals to Jane that she actually speaks perfect English.

** In episode 75, Diana (sarcastically) suggests Simon should join the Order of St. John, thus referencing his character's original name in the book.

* KidsAreCruel[=/=]TeensAreMonsters: The kids at Private School treated Jane and Helen horribly, even though Jane doesn't complain about anyone in particular. She just hints that when Helen went through chemo, her classmates ridiculed her for losing hair, but the memory is too painful and Jane can't even finish the sentence.

** Grace Poole is ''significantly'' younger than both her composites: Grace Poole was about forty and Mrs Fairfax was in her late fifties or sixties. A clearly case of Pragmatic Adaptation as the cast and crew appear to consist of several friends from school.
