'''Leo:''' Because eating is part of life. So is loving.\\
'''Vicky:''' Let's concentrate on eating, then.
* HappyEndingOverride: ''Troubling a Star'' brings back the fictional country of Vespugia from ''Literature/ASwiftlyTiltingPlanet'' and reveals that the events of the latter book only delayed the country's dictatorial government from coming to power by about 10 or 15 years, rather than averting it entirely.
* MamasBabyPapasMaybe: In ''The Love Letters''Letters'', Charlotte fled to Portugal because when she told her husband she was pregnant, he had asked her who the father was. (It was him.)
* {{Orgasmatron}}: ''The Young Unicorns'' has a young-adult-friendly version of the trope: a Micro-Ray that can directly stimulate the pleasure center of the brain. The experience is described as feeling like flying.

* [[NotChristianRock Not Christian Literature]], During the 60's and the 70's L'Engle's works were mainstays of Christian bookstores and church libraries, until her more unorthodox religious views (such as Christian Universalism) were publicized, whereupon her works were pretty much purged from Christian settings almost immediately. L'Engle repaid the favor--in a sense--by exploring some very out-field and Gnostic themes in her later books.
