* TheTragicRose: Played with. Rose is a recurrent motif in both versions of her song, but each song presents it differently. "Stardust" presents the rose as a symbolism for Stella's mad passion and its fatal consequences--thus playing the trope straight--while "Nikushimi wo Hanataba ni Kaete" represents it as a symbol for her renewed affection and vivacity, subverting the trope instead.
