Added DiffLines:

!! Tropes in this timeline:
* AbsurdlySharpBlade: just about any enchanted bladed weapon.
* AlternateHistory: The world of Hogwarts Exposed is DEFINITELY different from the world we know and love.
** [[spoiler: An earlier [[TheWarOnTerror War On Terror]]]]
*** [[spoiler: Complete with an invasion of Afghanistan]]
*** With magic
* AlternateHistoryWank: by merit of mostly using Franchise/HarryPotter rules for magic, or rather, lack thereof.
* AlienSpaceBats: Of course we all know that there is no such thing as magic, right?
* AttendingYourOwnFuneral: [[spoiler: Hermione in Update 500]]
* BeethovenWasAnAlienSpy: Many historical/religious figures are/were wizards.
* BackFromTheDead: Voldemort with his many Horcruxes. [[spoiler: And Hermione in Update 500.]]
** Then again, there are also ghosts that somewhat show this trope.
*** Rebecca Nurse, Salem Witch Trial victim
*** Prophet Samuel of the Old Testament
* BigEater: Merpeople in cold water, due to BizarreAlienBiology.
* DisneyDeath: [[spoiler: Hermione dies in the last battle. [[NotQuiteDead Or did she?]]]]
* {{Doorstopper}}: The author has written two hundred chapters and is expecting more. Mind you, each update is a thousand words long on average. In fact, he expects to finish the work in three years, assuming he writes one update every day-and-a-half.
* EasilyForgiven: Nobody makes a fuss of how wizards had been constantly ''messing with peoples minds'' or any other abuse about Free will, assaulting, bartering or terrorist enterprise (hacking and liberatin malicious Virus into National Internet, sensure mail, bugging Telephones lines around the country, attack in military bases etc...). And in fact wizards are put as the victims of the story.
** It's not like everyone forgave them so easily. That's one of the reasons X for Humans groups gathered such a following, and actually managed to force the wizards to police themselves by rather extreme means.
* EvilSorcerer: Voldemort. Some of his underlings are more...[[FromBadToWorse up to date]].
* {{Expy}}: Reverend Pitmoss is actually described as a more violent Fred Phelps. Which is ironic, considering that Fred Phelps actually exists in-universe.
* FlyingCar: Proudly brought to you by Arthur Weasley and the Bentley company.
* ForWantOfANail: Harry and his entourage, while en route to the Ministry Of Magic safehouse on broomsticks, get caught on tape by a Muggle recording device called a "video camera"
* FromBadToWorse: [[spoiler: Death Eaters + Al Qaeda. Or, in other words, magic + terrorism.]]
* HiddenElfVillage: about a dozen very large islands, not to mention the canon hidden places in Muggle countries like Hogwarts.
* [[spoiler: HumanityEnsues: a frequently used Trapanandan spell]]
* LaserGuidedAmnesia: To absolute ridiculous levels. One Obliviator managed to obliviate ''95% of the entire Superbowl stadium'' (70,401). Besides the time it would take to do this even with aparition and how to do it in secret, Strong bear ''should'' have died by Magic depletion by the 1% of the population... if he was an extremely strong Wizard.
* MagicAIsMagicA: It's discovered that [[spoiler: magic is powered by dark energy, and being a wizard is a genetic thing.]]
* {{Magitek}} - It's present in the original Literature/HarryPotter series, but taken {{Up To Eleven}} here. Various projects attempt to combine the best aspects of magic and technology. Flying cars, that run on magic instead on oil? Already there. Space travel? They are working on it.
** Military applications, on the other hand, are largely unprecedented.
* NuclearOption: [[spoiler: After New York City and Miami are [[NukeEm hit by nuclear devices]], President Clinton orders the [[CoolBoat USS Alabama (SSBN-731)]] to launch Trident missiles on [[AcceptablePoliticalTargets Pyongyang,]] [[PeoplesRepublicOfTyranny North Korea]]]].
* OurLichesAreDifferent: Horcruxes. 'nuff said.
** It's worth saying that the [[RussianMythology mythical]] UrExample of lichdom, Koschei the Deathless is [[spoiler: preparing his return...]]
* PowerLimiter: [[TheWheelOfTime Unbreakable Oaths]] are forced on the wizards. Though theoretically Muggles could also take those, but so far no-one demanded that.
* SecretIntelligenceService: [[spoiler: Sirius Black]] is a part of this.
* TakeOverTheWorld: Voldermort wants to rule the world too.
* TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt: [[spoiler: very, VERY narrowly avoided.]]
** So far.
* TheMole: [[spoiler: Draco Malfoy]]
* TheUnmasquedWorld: The very premise.
* NoSuchThingAsWizardJesus: played with. Some biblical characters associated with miracles turn out to be wizards, but not Jesus so far.
* NukeEm: [[spoiler: What Death Eater-sponsored Al Qaeda does to London]]
* RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething: The Hapsburg and Romanov families were at least partially wizards.
* StarfishLanguage: Mermish. [[spoiler: Dolphish.]]
* SelectiveObliviousness: Wizards don't know what a television or the Superbowl is, but had a magical computer virus on hand.
** It depends on the wizard. Tech-savvy wizards whose job it is to stay aware of the Muggle world have knowledge of all of these things. The common wizard doesn't.
* SemperFi: The 24th Marine Expeditionary Unit participates in the Battle of Buyan Island. Also, United States Marines stand watch over [[spoiler: Hermione's [[AttendingYourOwnFuneral casket]]]]. Hermione befriends a female Marine helicopter pilot before the Final Battle.
* UsefulNotes/UnitedNations: International Confederation Of Wizards
** It's based in [[spoiler: Atlantis]]
** It is very, VERY powerful.
* WesternTerrorists: Britain For Humans and America For Humans. Basically any anti-wizard group based in the West.
* WeAllLiveInAmerica: Obviously by the Tropes above, the '''entire''' story is written with the United States in mind and most changes, social transformations and advances are done in here (The Maskarade break was done by the President Clinton). Going to ridiculous levels with the Magic World (We All Live in Britannia) since all the spells, weapons, institutions and abilities are ''exactly'' the same regardless of Nation or Culture.
