The Lizzie Bennet Diaries 5 Year Anniversary - My Name is Lizzie Bennet - Ep: 1 (April 9th 2012)

Who am I? I’m a 24 year old grad student with a mountain of student loans, living at home and preparing for a career.

what she says: i’m fine

what she really means: lydia bennet spent her entire life having her mother as her role model and her father never really cared about her. in fact, all she had from him was a constant affirmation of how stupid and naive she was. she grew up relying on mrs. bennet’s view of the world and at the age of 15 she reached the definition of glory in her life by finding a man who would actually propose something serious to her. the entire world judged a 15 year old girl who probably ended up suffering all kinds of domestic violence by the man whom she swore would take her to a higher social status instead of taking care of her.

Bennet`s family aesthetic :

They are still too young, and their eyes have not yet opened a merciless truth, which are the most attractive young people must have a livelihood in the same way as most mediocre.

  • [the Bennets are standing around the broken coffee maker]
  • Mr. Bennet: So. Who broke it? I'm not mad, I just wanna know.
  • Jane Bennet: ... I did. I broke it.
  • Mr. Bennet: No. No you didn't. Lydia?
  • Lydia Bennet: Don't look at me. Look at Kitty.
  • Catherine "Kitty" Bennet: What?! I didn't break it.
  • Lydia Bennet: Oh that's weird. How'd you even know it was broken?
  • Catherine "Kitty" Bennet: Because it's sitting right in front of us and it's broken.
  • Lydia Bennet: Suspicious.
  • Catherine "Kitty" Bennet: No it's not!
  • Lydia Bennet: If it matters, probably not, but Lizzie was the last one to use it.
  • Elizabeth Bennet: Liar! I don't even drink that crap!
  • Lydia Bennet: Oh really? Then what were you doing by the coffee cart earlier?
  • Elizabeth Bennet: I use the wooden stirrers to push back my cuticles. Everyone knows that Lydia!
  • Jane Bennet: Okay let's not fight. I broke it. Let me fix it Papa.
  • Mr. Bennet: No! Who broke it?!
  • Catherine "Kitty" Bennet: Papa... Mary's been awfully quiet.
  • Mary Bennet: REALLY?!
  • [everyone starts arguing]
  • Mr. Bennet: [to Mrs. Bennet] I broke it. I burned my hand so I punched it. I predict 10 minutes from now they'll be at each other's throats with warpaint on their faces and a pig head on a stick. Good. It was getting a little chummy around here.

the lizzie bennet diaries meme:

five characters; lydia bennet
“I can be loud, and obnoxious. I enjoy partying, occasionally too much, and I don’t always avoid trouble very well. I nag on my sisters, and my cousin, too, and sometimes I forget that the world doesn’t revolve around me. I think I’m getting better at that. Everything that I am is made up of both my failures and my successes. My attempts and my stumbles. I’ve learned that in order to rise up from failure, and move forward, you have to acknowledge when you’ve failed to begin with[…]Because another thing he has failed at doing is taking my identity, and taking my voice. Those are mine. And with them, I can always turn my failures into strengths. That’s kind of the point, isn’t it?“

The Lizzie Bennet Diaries 5 Year Anniversary -  Snobby Mr. Douchey - Ep: 6  (April 26th 2012)

Darcy’s boring, stuffy, unbelievably rude. He thinks he’s too good for us “common folk.” But he’s handsome! And rich! Even richer than Bing Lee!
