Added DiffLines:

* AmbiguouslyGay: Tom and Carl happen to live side by side in a single house and have dogs and koi fish but its unclear on what the nature of their relationship with each other is.
* HeterosexualLifePartners: One valid interpretation of their relationship can be seen as this as they do not give off much warning signs on their sexuality and the recent FlipFlopOfGod from the author has left their relationship open to interpretation.
* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: WordOfGod from the author has stated that Tom and Carl are inspirations of two close heterosexual friends of the author.

* ExtraEyes: The little red "berries" all over his branches.
* FishOutOfWater: As a sentient plant visiting a world run by humans, the culture shock hits him pretty hard. Especially when he learns about vegetarians.
* KlingonsLoveShakespeare: During his time on earth, he develops a fascination with human clothes. He can't wear them conventionally, for obvious reasons, but likes to hang them from his branches.



* StarfishAliens: He's a tree.

* IJustWantToBeSpecial: She was ''so'' eager to Jump At The Call that she didn't bother thinking through the implications before she took the Oath. (If she'd been able to read her sister's biography before that, she would have had a far better idea about what she was getting herself into) A big part of her character development in book 3 is acknowledging the flaws that let her take the Oath without really meaning it - she was all about the 'big power' without getting the 'big responsibility' part. Dairine's habit of action first, think about the consequences later pops up again in book 5. [[spoiler: when she's told about her mother's cancer, she immediately tries a more or less improvised spell to cure her. It backfires spectacularly - she's still wizard-grounded over it in book 7, and she has to sit back and only watch while Nita undergoes specialist training to try and help Betty.]]

It plays a major part of her initial problems with Roshaun, too - they have a similar entitled attitude. For Roshaun, it's his royal heritage [[spoiler: with accompanying noblesse oblige]], for Dairine, it's because she's usually far and away the smartest person in the room.
* LateArrivalSpoiler: Dairine does end up becoming a wizard in the third book.

Harry's sister and, to his surprise in ''A Wizard Abroad'', a wizard. (The wizardry apparently comes from his side of the family). She's an American currently living in Ireland, running a horse farm in County Wickalow.

* AuthorAvatar: Annie bears the most superficial resemblences to Diane Duane - an American with red hair who's immigrated to Ireland and lives in the country of County Wickalow near Dublin (though in meta-works like the 30-Day OTP challenge, Duane appears as herself). In ''Lifeboats'', she's seen briefly with a man that suspiciously resembles Duane's RealLife husband, Creator/PeterMorewood.
