* FantasticRacism: Wizards don't like mind mages. No real detail is gone into about this. It mostly serves as a reason for Holly to not act on the information she's received.



* TakeOurWordForIt: A rather unfortunate side effect of the fic's tendency to skip over the details of a lot of scenes.

** In particular, at the end of the fourth book, Holly comments that they'll even need to get along with Ron and Hermione, stating that betrayal is hard to forgive. Ron and Hermione had hardly been in the book, much less betrayed Holly.

* FlatCharacter: While a lot of characters are introduced as a result of Holly befriending different people than Harry did, they get very little characterization beyond being Holly's friend, as well as the occasional InfoDump.

The result is [[MarySue Holly Potter]], who befriends Draco, Blaise, and Millicent, has powers that canon Harry does not possess (such as mind-reading, telepathy, and blocking spells without a wand), and figures most plot twists out in the original books from the get-go, even though she goes all through the same adventures as Harry anyway.

* MugglesDoItBetter: Heavily subverted. In spite of spending most of her life living in the Muggle world, Holly promptly discards all customs and traditions she observed in favor of the Old Ways.

* HatesBeingTouched: Allegedly a result of the abuse she received from the Dursleys, but only seems to apply to characters the author doesn't like.

Added DiffLines:

* InSpiteOfANail: Between Holly's powers and everyone fawning over her, she tends to get clues or even figure out the entire plot long before Harry did canonically. She always finds some excuse to not act on this information, so [[TheStationsOfTheCanon the plot won't change too much.]]

Added DiffLines:

** The Slytherins insist that they are unfairly prejudiced against, and are good people. They never demonstrate this, and after tormenting a muggle-born and a blood traitor (both first years) to the point where the muggle-born needs to be hospitalized, it's hard to fault the Gryffindors for assuming they're blood supremacists.

Added DiffLines:

** Blaise himself is a hypocrite here, since he is often telling Holly about how open-minded and non-judgemental people who follow the Old Ways are.

* JerkAssHasAPoint: Though Holly sees Ron and Neville's suspicion of herself and Malfoy as being involved with the releasing the Basilisk as a sign of them betraying her, the fact remains that Holly has been ignoring her alleged friends from Gryffindor and letting her Slytherin friends mock and attack anyone (including Colin Creevey and Ginny Weasley) that annoy her in the slightest.
