* ''[[https://www.fimfiction.net/blog/394351/new-story-little-sun Little Sun]]'' has a rather dark scene where Princess Celestia tortures, and then launches a full-scale slaughter on, members of Nightmare Cult, a murderous group of ponies who pledge allegiance to Nightmare Moon, following an assassination attempt on her and her daughter Sunset Shimmer at the latter's birthday party. The cult is clearly a stand-in for terrorist groups like Al-Quaeda ISIS, and Celestia's moral crisis in dealing with them is not unlike the U.S. government's controversial decisions regarding terrorism.

** The Jewish Republic and the Emirate of Mecca [[UsefulNotes/ArabIsraeliConflict are ancient enemies and are constantly at each other's throats]] despite being technical political allies in the Angel Federation. The fact that both sides are blatently in the wrong just makes it even more {{Anvilicious}}.

** According to WordOfGod, the Jewish Republic is a far right wing society obsessed with Jewish racial purity and often exterminates worlds with toxic gas. [[SarcasmMode Gee]], I wonder what major world event that is an ironic [[ThoseWackyNazis reference]] [[FinalSolution to]].

** Despite essentially being an extended epilogue focused on the aftereffects of the manga, ''Beyond the Winding Road'''s can also be read as an exploration into how people with disorders affect those around them and how different approaches to dealing with disorders can affect the people who have them.

* ''Fanfic/BeyondTheWindingRoad'' has a moment early on where Lewis has to tell his family he's the reincarnation of a famous martyr, and he's afraid they won't believe him or treat who he is as real because his past identity and memory issues were diagnosed as Dissociative Identity Disorder (AKA Multiple Personality Disorder). But before we know much about this, Lewis explaining who he is to his parents can easily be read as [[ComingOutStory him coming out]]. In fact, that's exactly [[MistakenForGay what his mother thought it was.]]

* ''Fanfic/ChildOfTheStorm'' has a fair degree of the usual MCU themes shown in the post Avengers films, but Operation Overlord is ''very'' familiar. MI6 is destroyed, with thousands killed. The response is a stripping away of usual protocol to allow SHIELD and its allies to enact a NoHoldsBarredBeatdown of HYDRA, with every base but one being destroyed, but not quite getting to the leaders, who hole up in secret, right under the noses of the British government, and respond with an attack designed to devastate London. Stripped of its fantasy/superhero trappings, does this or does this not sound like 9/11, the invasion of Afghanistan and declaration of an international 'War On Terror', arguably doing more harm than good, partly leading to the London Bombings? ** It also touches on what Harry Dresden suffered at the hands of the Red Court, with him saying flatly, "They did things to me," which draws a horrified silence and a supportive squeezed hand from his companions, emphasising the gang rape connotations of what happened to him. ** Chapter 66 has Sean Cassidy bluntly compare what Riddle's diary did to Ginny to grooming by a pedophile over the internet, right down to the rape and murder (in terms of the draining of her lifeforce) afterwards.

* [[http://siye.co.uk/series.php?seriesid=54 The Meaning of One]] series by Sovran features a soul bond between Harry and Ginny. Let's see, they are different from either of their parents, they didn't choose their circumstances but are happy with them, they face initial hostility from some of Ginny's family, especially Molly, who (unjustly) suspects them of engaging in various perverted acts, and they have to keep their relationship a secret from all but their family, closest friends, McGonagall, and Dumbledore. Could this, perhaps, be an allusion to the experience of gays and lesbians?
