* InHarmonyWithNature: [[FanFic/TravelsThroughAzerothAndOutland Travels through Azeroth and Outland]] examines this trope a bit. While the night elves claim to be in harmony with nature, their attitude towards it is presented as paternalistic. Also, because of their special relationship with the natural world (like the wisps harvesting wood without damaging trees), one can argue that the night elves actually live apart from true nature, even though these benefits are given with natureís consent. The tauren are closer to the actual ideal, and the mokínathal closer still.

* {{Expy}}: The blind scholar Belgrano is an obvious expy of Argentine writer Creator/JorgeLuisBorges. Goblin science-fiction writer Artz Cyklurk in Area 52 is clearly meant to be Arthur C. Clarke, while Fil Kaydik (referred to but never actually encountered) is obviously Philip K. Dick. The crazy troll, Dan'jo, is a reference to Emperor Joshua Norton. Niharalath is presumably an expy of Nyarlathotep.

* StepfordSmiler: The author's take on the draenei is reminiscent of [[GreenSkyTrilogy Zilpha Keatley Snyder's Kindar]].

** But Destron arguably has a point, considering that Thrall was succeeded by Garrosh Hellscream, who took a much more tyrannical and powermongering approach to leading the Horde. He also proved horrendously inept at working with non-orcs, and eventually this led to most of the Horde openly rebelling and teaming up with the Alliance to depose Garrosh.

* YouCantGoHomeAgain: [[spoiler:Daj'yah killed an orc in Orgrimmar in self defense. Hellscream's Horde is notoriously racist however, and after fleeing the city she joins Destron on his travels through the post-Cataclysm Azeroth.]]

** Several human ethnic groups are introduced to flesh out the setting. Kirovi have a distinct Slavic/Russian flavor, particularly in their naming conventions. The Ralmanni are Romany (Gypsy) in origin. There are also the Dromascoi, who were conquered by Lordaeron, and are loosely based off of Romania. However, very little information is given about the Dromascoi.

* {{Jossed}}: Given the nature of the story, this was probably inevitable.



* OldShame: The writer has expressed regret at writing a section involving pseudo-beatnik night elves in Stormwind City. That said, he doesn't consider it bad enough to warrant a retcon.

In this WorldOfWarcraft FanFiction epic, begun in March of 2006 and completed in April of 2011 (and resumed in August 2012), Destron (a [[TheUndead Forsaken]] mage who can still pass for a living human) sets out to explore. As he does so, he keeps a journal, offering wryly insightful commentary on each region and culture that he happens upon. The author attempts to stick with the setting's established lore as much as possible, while at the same time expanding and embellishing upon it.
