Added DiffLines:

* NiceGirl: Definitely seems that way. It never did her a lot of good.

* SilentSnarker: When Harry [[AskAStupidQuestion asks silly questions]], such as [[IsTheAnswerToThisQuestionYes "Would you like some pizza before we set out?"]]

* DisproportionateRetribution: The Winter mantle's method of enforcing that to keep the balance of the roles,[[spoiler: the Maiden ''must remain a maiden'': it overrides the consciousness of the lady in question, and has her ferociously attack her would-be partner, doing mortal injury to him. Justified in that the fae do not as a rule ''get'' the idea of emotional attachment, and so that there is ''no'' temptation of any kind for the Winter Lady to try bending or breaking the rules. Ever. It is also effective and practical as self defense for anyone who would defile the Maiden without her consent]].

-->I couldn't really look away from the mirror this time. I tried to look at it objectively, as if she was someone else, and not the one who had killed the man she loved and who had then failed him again by being unable to prevent even his ghost from being destroyed in its determination to protect others. That bitch deserved to be run over by a train or something.

* SpareToTheThrone: Her training under Lea is part training her to survive, part making her ready to simply survive fighting dark monsters, and able to fill the need to replace Maeve or another Lady. In Mab's calculations, Molly is her Spare's Spare in case the first Space, Sarissa, cannot do it or isn't close enough.



* UnwittingPawn: Of Maeve.

to:

* UnexpectedSuccessor: No one anticipates a changeling not chosen by any Summer Queen to end up with the position of Summer Lady.
* UnwittingPawn: Of Maeve. She is lead to her death by Maeve's machinations.


Added DiffLines:

* SpareToTheThrone: Her helping Harry through his physical therapy is in part a chance for Mab to hone her into someone suitable to be the Winter Lady should the need to replace Maeve reach a climax.


Added DiffLines:

* UnexpectedSuccessor: Mab's machinations aimed for her to replace Maeve, not Lily. When Maeve kills Lily and Sarissa being so close, all the work Mab put into making Sarissa able to handle Maeve's job made her an ideal candidate for the new Summer Lady opening.
