* SettingUpdate: P&P in modern America, as a vlog. The Bennet sisters are now university students who are probably going need a man in possession of a good fortune to dig them out of the debts their family has. Mr Bingley is now a medical student with huge family money and Darcy is a media mogul's son and a hipster. Many plot points focus on women's career rather than on their love life and marriage prospects.

* Whenever Darcy is introduced (back) into the story line, he'll either spend the first few minutes mostly out of shot with his head cut of the frame, or off screen altogether.

Added DiffLines:

* INeverSaidItWasPoison: Lizzie realizes Caroline is full of shit, and has, in fact, been watching her videos and keeping up with all the drama, despite her attempts at playing innocent. She accuses Caroline of just wanting to know what's in Darcy's letter. Caroline quickly denies that she cares about the letter--but Lizzie immediately points out, if Caroline ''really'' hadn't seen the videos, her response would've been, "What letter?" [[OhCrap Caroline quickly excuses herself]].

Added DiffLines:

* NoNameGiven: Despite the modern setting, Mr and Mrs Bennet are called Mr and Mrs Bennet. The girls refer to them as "Mom and Dad", the other characters as "your mother and your father" and they call themselves pet names in the costume theater sequences. The book reveals Mrs Bennet is called Marilyn.

It has started a trend of Setting Updates diaries appearing on Youtube, both professional and fan made. ''WebVideo/TheAutobiographyOfJaneEyre'' referenced the [=LBDs=] in its first episode and its authors cite it as their inspiration. Meanwhile, it's been followed by its own {{Spinoff}}s: ''WebVideo/WelcomeToSanditon'' follows Gigi Darcy in her adventure to a beach resort Sanditon, beta-testing the "Domino" application, which records, auto-edits and auto-uploads video monologues and dialogues, and covering Austen's unfinished last novel ''Sandition''. Another spinoff, ''WebVideo/EmmaApproved'', launched in October 2013, chronicling through Domino the adventures of Professional ShipperOnDeck [[Literature/{{Emma}} Emma Woodhouse]]. And they have branched out of the world of Austen with ''WebVideo/FrankensteinMD'', following the career of the bioethically-challenged [[GenderFlip Victoria]] [[Literature/{{Frankenstein}} Frankenstein]]; and with ''WebVideo/TheMarchFamilyLetters'' concerning the daily shenanigans of the [[Literature/LittleWomen March Sisters]].
