** As fans quickly realized, Lincoln's personality and place in the family leave him ripe of this trope, leading to several stories playing it out. In [[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12288661/1/A-Dark-House-Inadequate A Dark House Inadequate]], he starts [[SelfHarm Self Harming]] and is ultimately DrivenToSuicide (mercifully [[InterruptedSuicide interrupted]] but the trauma is still very real) and in [[http://archiveofourown.org/works/7312138 Blood & Sweat]], he pushes himself to the point of injury through physical training to try to impress Lynn; when she and Luna figure out exactly how hard their brother is pushing himself (which includes failing to eat properly, to the point of rib exposure), they're terrified and Lynn [[ItsAllMyFault tearfully starts blaming herself]]. Both stories also feature Lincoln feeling worthless compared to his sisters and the girls having to come to terms with how things meant in innocence caused their brother deep emotional damage.

* In one ''Harry Potter/Silent Hill'' crossover I forgot the name, Draco Malfoy and Sybil Bennett find themselves stranded inside the hellish dimension of Silent Hill, in which they meet the Brethren. Now for the kicker: Silent Hill was founded by Squibs determined to eradicate magic amongst them, and the Brethren decided to burn a little girl alive because she developed magic in spite of their safety measures. Draco is a wizard, and Sybil knows it. Meaning that she's the only person able to protect a twenty-something kid from being murdered by a bunch of fanatics for something he was born with.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Fanfic/TheDragonKingsTemple'' almost overflows with mundane horror:
** Two kids are stranded in an unknown location with no way to communicate with theirs surroundings and no way back home.
** A predator is lurking in the base, hiding itself so well the protagonists have to use bait and even so, they almost died to neutralize it.
** Aang's reaction when he discovers two of his friends didn't came back from their trip, and all the clues point towards an abduction.
** Zuko and Toph's past as former [[ChildSoldier child soldiers]] coming to light horrifies the SG-1. [[OutlivingOnesOffspring Jack]] especially is hitten hard.
** Sanura's DarkAndTroubledPast. All her family ominously killed because her so-called gods [[MoralEventHorizon wanted to make a movie]].
** Zuko grows sicker and sicker the more time he's deprived from the sunlight. Even worse, [[AdultsAreUseless the SG-1 are aggravating the issue by refusing to let him go outside]], fearing he will catch some Terran illness or the NID swooping on him - and despite Top ''specifically stating'' "Let us see sunlight", Daniel doesn't understand she's using ExactWords and thinks the "high-spirited little girl" is just going stir-crazy.

* In [[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12049888/1/The-True-Villain The True Villain]], the story starts off like any other episode of MiraculousLadybug, Hawkmoth (here stated to be Gabriel Agreste) finds someone to turn into an akuma: a man distraught that his "product" has been stolen. He offers to help said man replace his merchandise in exchange for retrieving Ladybug and Chat's miraculous. Later, the akuma shows up outside of the school that the titular characters' civilian identities attend and abducts Marinette. A horrified Hawkmoth informs him that this wasn't part of the agreement but is told that he agreed to replace the man's products. Then the akuma spies Adrien and marks him as his next target before breaking off the partnership. Hawkmoth is [[EvenEvilHasStandards thoroughly shaken because he believes]] SlaveryIsASpecialKindOfEvil (not to mention the akuma is planning on kidnapping and selling [[PapaWolf his son]]) and he ends up pulling an EnemyMine with Chat that evolves into a HeelFaceTurn.

* [[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/8475832/1/Tainted-Dreams Tainted Dreams ]] has the protagonist being stuck in a coma with Freddy Krueger. So, basically she is stuck with a murderer, being tortured so he can feed off her fear... But what seems worse is how she accepts that there is no one waiting for her to wake up, no one is coming to visit her or wish that she would wake up and there is nothing she can do to escape. She is completely alone. This easily relates to people who are abducted and eventually believe that they won't ever be found or saved. It is both heart breaking and disturbing of how Helyse just accepts her fate, making one wonder what has she been through.

* In ''Fanfic/MarieDSuesseAndTheMysteryNewPirateAge'', toward the end, [[spoiler:it is revealed that the tragic events that occurred for the last 20 years in the OnePiece world can be undone, but if Madelyn never ate her Devil Fruit, she would never have made the mistake of causing Luffy's execution, fled to the "real world," changed her name to Blake, met Garreth and had Marie. Not only are Garreth and Madelyn/Blake aware that they'll never see each other or their daughter again, but Marie realizes that she'll be erased from existence entirely, and feels as though her existence was a mistake]].
