** Towards the end we learn that [[spoiler: Voldemort's unlimited-uses variant of the killing curse is the evil counterpart of the Patronus 2.0. The Patronus 2.0 requires you to want everyone to overcome death (because it allows the caster to confront death as a concept head-on instead of hiding from it), while the advanced killing curse requires complete indifference on whether the target lives or dies (because indifference is as damaging as hate but flows without limit).]]

** Early on, when Harry is being shown around Diagon Alley by Professor McGonogall, she repeatedly answers his direct questions on how the things he sees can possibly happen with a simple, "Magic". Later on, after Harry has pulled off something seemingly impossbile and McGonogall asks how he did it, his reply is, "Magic", to which she immediately responds, "That is no sort of answer!". Harry, realizing this trope had just come into play, [[LampshadeHanging only smiles at her.]]

* DanBrowned: The author has a tendency to grossly simplify points that are actually under debate, and to simply state his preferred interpretation as unquestioned scientific truth. The most blatant is that his specific interpretation of Bayes' Theorum is not only treated as the only one, but as ''the same thing as the scientific method''.

It can also sneak up on you just how much the setting has been altered; Harry overcomes an astonishing number of magical limitations that don't exist in the books and deconstructs ideas from the original based on details invented for this fanfic. The most glaring is that his genetic explanation of magic is based on there being two distinct levels of muggledom.
