* HeWhoFightsMonsters: The villains are ordinary yet utterly insane ponies who believe their gambit of destroying [[spoiler:"Nightmare Moon"]] is a righteous crusade. How else they could justify capturing Luna, covering her disappearance with a cadaver of somepony else (), and keeping her imprisoned in isolation and hunger just to eventually [[spoiler:sacrifice]] her? The one they believe they're up against wasn't shown sinking to such depths in canon.

* TheNeedsOfTheMany: Somewhat deconstructed. Celestia pulls everyone else's needs far ahead of TooDumbToLive: Frankly, Luna brought her own need plight upon herself by sneaking out all alone, thinking that "anything that would try to properly mourn, resulting in said DespairEventHorizon getting worse.harm her would be no match for her magic". Clearly, the possibility of being outnumbered or surprised never entered her mind until it was too late.

* AlternateUniverse: Even if it wasn't the case at first, it is now. The fic was published back in 2012, presumably after "Luna Eclipsed", as Luna's first Nightmare Night is mentioned in passing, but before "A Canterlot Wedding", considering that Cadance seems not to exist, and the official CO[[note]]Commanding Officer[[/note]] of the Royal Guard is named Navy Shield, and he's not a captain. [[ArsonMurderAndJayWalking Also, the story is set about one year after Luna's return, but Twilight is still a unicorn.]]
* AngerBornOfWorry: Played with. Celestia gives into this during her argument with Luna in chapter 1, then spends most of the story beating herself up over it. However, she doesn't seem to feel this towards the Mane 6 [[spoiler:nor towards Luna]] after her BigDamnHeroes moment, even though she had perfectly good reasons to be upset about her prized student secretly endangering herself and her friends for the sake of investigating a crazy-sounding hunch, as well as about [[spoiler:her little sister getting herself abducted and almost killed because of recklessness]].
* ApologizesALot: Fluttershy. Whether it's about showing her emotions after Luna's death, or about tripping and ultimately getting hurt by accident, she ''will'' say "I'm sorry". [[UpToEleven At one point she even apologizes for having just apologized.]] Frankly, it's almost her CatchPhrase in this story.



* BigDamnHeroes: Celestia becomes one for the Mane 6 ([[MyFriendsAndZoidberg and Spike]]), who in turn are those for [[spoiler:Princess Luna]].



* CassandraTruth: Not long after Luna's funeral, we hear about an incident with a pony bursting into the Royal Court and yelling things like "she's alive". After a while of unsuccessfully trying to get anything else out of him, Celestia eventually has him thrown out. [[spoiler:Of course, in the end, he turns out to have been right.]] [[WhatHappenedToTheMouse Too bad we never hear from him again, though.]]



* DeathFakedForYou: Luna's kidnappers fool everypony to think that she was killed by some forest creature by disguising a deceased mare's body as that of Luna with a concealment spell.

* AnAesop: In the last chapter, Twilight sends Celestia [[spoiler:and Luna]] one of her letters about what she's learned about friendship.
--> [[spoiler:''"I learned the value of never giving up, as well as the importance of pursing the truth. If your gut tells you that something's wrong with the way things are presented to you, then you should definitely do your best to investigate it. It's never a good idea to jump to conclusions, but you should always give your hunches a chance.\\
I also learned that sometimes your friends won't share your views or ideas. Sometimes they'll disagree with what you think and often aren't shy about voicing their opinion. However, I've learned that a true friend will give you the benefit of the doubt and help you seek out the answers you're looking for. After all she did to help me out, I know that if Applejack ever has a hunch and needs my help, I'll be there to do my best, even if I don't agree with what she's saying."'']]
