** Lydia, of all characters. As far as the original novel go, she has no fans whatsoever. In the webseries, she was adored. She's such a fanbase darling, then after she becomes TheWoobie in the later episodes, the rewatching fans will point out and criticize every instance od Lizzie verbally sniping at Lydia (Lydia's sniping at Lizzie gets nowhere near of that attention).


Added DiffLines:

* EvenTheGirlsWantHer: Under every video Caroline appears in, there will be voices of straight females wondering if they're really straight, as well as many comments boiling down to: "Ah, I know she's evil, but I cannot get over how pretty she is!".


Added DiffLines:

* EvilIsSexy: Caroline and Wickham are the characters the most frequently seen as sexy in the comments, even in rewatch when people are aware of their true nature. Although Wickham proves to be so evil that it's a turn off to many people, and the genuine NiceGuy Bing rivals him in attracting interest. Then again, Bing [[FemaleGaze doesn't]] [[ShirtlessScene strip on-screen]]...

* {{Fanon}}: Many commenters [[WildMassGuessing speculate that]] Lydia slept with Hank to get to Vid Con. (Specifically, she [[LeaningOnTheFourthWall winked at the camera]] after saying she "had friends in high places.") Later she got her own video blog, which makes you wonder...

** It's also commonly speculated that Darcy [[spoiler:killed Wickham after buying out the company that owned the sex tape with him and Lydia]]. Of course, this is mostly just joking, mixed with a bit of wishful thinking. (Especially given what an infuriating KarmaHoudini [[spoiler:Wickham]] is.)

** There are some who say you could make a case for Ricky being gay and closeted. Whether they think his GirlfriendInCanada is just a cover or if she's real but just, you know, not a she, depends on the viewer.

** In a lot of the later Lydia Bennet videos and during the [[spoiler: sex tape]] arc a lot of the commenters said that they ship George Wickham/a pool of hungry sharks or George Wickham's face/William Darcy's fist
* DoubleStandard: Releasing [[spoiler:the sex tape]] is gonna ruin Lydia's reputation and even eventual career, not Wickham's. Probably TruthInTelevision. The website doesn't even have George's name on it.

** Lydia/Literally-Anyone-But-Wickham is universally beloved.

Added DiffLines:

* HateSink: George Wickham is meant to be as detestable and slimy as ever here, and is designed to make the viewer hate him as much as possible. If YouTube comments are anything to go off of, this was a resounding success.

* ActorShipping: The imagination of avid fans ran wild in pairing Ashley Clements (Lizzie) and Daniel Vincent Gordh (William Darcy), even though the two told them mildly that they didn't wish it. As if that ever stopped crazed fangirls and fanboys.

* FridgeLogic: Isn't there any legal way for Lydia and her family to prevent Wickham from [[spoiler:publishing the sex tape]]? It's not like she's given him a written permission to distribute it, or something. Of course, money is probably an issue (so they can't take it to the court) and that's what [[spoiler:Darcy]] might be for. But the thing is, in the book they were really at Wickham's mercy and had to bribe him into marrying Lydia, and here the law is on their side. Why didn't they just involve police? They could find Wickham just fine.

** Caroline Lee: A [[AristocratsAreEvil mean and haughty girl]] who Charlotte and Lizzie criticized realistically for joining William Darcy in his crusade against the world... or a [[SpoiledSweet naive and brutally honest spoiled girl]] who at least is not a {{Hypocrite}} about how she likes money, becomes the pawn of two manipulative vloggers and has a crush on a childhood friend which people find annoying because she sees right through his behavior?

** Lizzie : [[ManipulativeBastard a manipulative vlogger]] who retorts to SlutShaming against her little sister, publishes [[FalseFriend everyone's private life]] on the internet and [[AggressiveCategorism judges everyone]] harshly or a StepfordSnarker who needs to snark on the internet to bear the fact that her mother is a misogynist, that most of her neighbors are snobs or materialists and that her financal situation and future are uncertain, and who [[AngerBornOfWorry snaps out of anger]] that her sisters's lives are going completely out of control, because they are preparing themselves to live as someone's trophy wife instead of trying to be individuals like she is?

* FlameWar: Episode 41's first fits of comments went very much near this. It desserves a special mention, as the fandom is usually polite and understanding, and the top comments in other videos often contain compromises, and, once, two people apologizing for getting too far in an argument and someone congratulating them.

*** This got less popular after her appearances on ''Emma Approved'', where she's needlessly cruel to Harriet at every turn.

** The entire "Lydia and Wickham" arc fits as many fans were not happy at how the arc played out, the wider UnfortunateImplications behind Lizzie's remarks to Lydia, or even using idea of using the sex tape in lieu of Lydia eloping with Wickham.

* UnfortunateImplications: A few watchers were uncomfortable with Lizzie supposedly "SlutShaming" Lydia. Lizzie responded to this in a Questions and Answers video (her response essentially being that she doesn't mind women who [[EthicalSlut have a lot of sex but are responsible about it]], but that's not what Lydia is).
** AlternateCharacterInterpretation: Her roughness is due to fear for her little sister. This makes her more sympathetic and much closer to the Elizabeth Bennet from the book PrideAndPrejudice. [[spoiler: It is confirmed by a passing remark in epidode 17, and expanded upon in the ''Secret Diaries'' books where she writes in her diaries how worried she is about Lydia.]]
** [[spoiler: It has royally come to bite Lizzie in the ass by Episode 87]]
