* GenreShift: Subverted. It would ''seem'' that going from magical BoardingSchool books aimed primarily at younger readers to CrimeFiction novels for adults is a big leap. However, considering Rowling's escalating DarkerAndEdgier tone and her love of [[RedHerring Red Herrings]], TheSummation, and all things [[ThisIndexWillBeImportantLater Chekhov]], it was a very organic, almost inevitable transition. ''Literature/TheCasualVacancy'', with its [[SequelDifficultyDrop much lower stakes]] and RotatingProtagonist, is a much straighter example, and is something of an [[OddballInTheSeries Oddball]] in her oeuvre.

* DearNegativeReader: While Rowling has largely embraced the fandom of Harry Potter, she has gone on record of disliking the [[invoked]]MisaimedFandom that [[DracoInLeatherPants Draco Malfoy]] had developed, and is uncomfortable with the more lewd fanfictions.

* {{Deuteragonist}}: All of her work since ''Literature/HarryPotterAndTheDeathlyHallows'' has focused on more than one central character (even her [[Theatre/HarryPotterAndTheCursedChild expansions to]] [[Film/FantasticBeastsAndWhereToFindThem the Potter universe]]).

* {{Homage}}: Writing under her post-Potter synonym as "Robert Galbraith", she revealed in a Creator/{{BBC}} interview in November 2015 that she is a fan of the Music/BlueOysterCult. "Robert Galbraith"'s novel ''Career Of Evil" is heavily inspired by a BOC song of the same title and she admitted to loading the book with a lot of ShoutOuts to other lyrics and songs of this band.
