->''A real witch can ride a broomstick, cast spells and make a proper shamble out of nothing. Eleven-year-old Tiffany Aching can't. A real witch never casually steps out of her body, leaving it empty. Tiffany does. And there's something just waiting for a handy body to take over. Something ancient and horrible, which can't die. Now she's got to fight back and learn to be a real witch really quickly, with the help of arch-witch Mistress Weatherwax and the truly amazing Miss Level... "Crivens! And us!" Oh, yes. And the Nac Mac Feegle the rowdiest, toughest, smelliest bunch of fairies ever to be thrown out of Fairyland for being drunk at two in the afternoon. They'll fight anything. And even they might not be enough...''

* SinInvitesPossession: Tiffany makes an error based on inexperience and a certain vanity. Untutored as to the pitfalls, she treats astral travel and going out of body as unremarkable and neglects to take safety precautions to prevent anything else from getting in while the back door is open and unlocked. she pops out of her body to check herself out, as if she is looking at herself in a full-length mirror; whilst checking her appearance, the Hiver takes occupation of her body.

** Played for laughs; this is how humans (or "bigjobs") treat the Feegles when they are disguised in human clothes so they can rescue Tiffany.

* ConservationOfNinjutsu: Or of Witchcraft, oddly. At the Witch Trials there's scores of witches present, and when something bad happens they all shout, rush about and don't do anything useful at all.

* WaxingLyrical: Rob Anybody's complaint when the Feegles are pretending to be a human -- "I talk to my knees but they dinna listen to me." -- is almost but not quite the first line of a famous song from ''Theatre/PaintYourWagon''. The fact that the song is completely inappropriate to the context just makes it funnier.
