* ChessMotifs: [[spoiler: The conversation that Second Timeline! Frank has with Faux-Hudson is a very clever one, with different animals of the IceAge as corresponding chess pieces: [[{{Foreshadowing}} mammoths for kings and queens, sabres for knights, humans for rooks, weasels for bishops, and an assortment of possums and sloths for pawns.]] Faux-Hudson employs the game to illustrate to Frank the gravity of the herd's importance to events, and [[ChekhovsGun many hints]] dropped in this will prove important later to the rest of the Series.]]

* CrypticBackGroundReference: [[spoiler: "The Troubles" when they first began to be alluded to in chapter sixteen "Partings" and the chapters after "Partings" such as seventeen, "All's Quiet on the Western Front", as neither the readers or the main IceAge cast knew anything about "The Troubles."]]

* GenreBusting: This story could be categorized as sci-fi - adventure - spiritual - action - mystery - fantasy - drama - suspense - hurt/comfort, but since the site only allows two categories, it is only classified as sci-fi/adventure, although it clearly is not just that. This story is in fact a '''major''' GenreBusting story for the IceAge fandom in and of itself. It has also had major influence in creating a subgenre of sci-fi stories taking place within the Ice Age in the fandom archive, but this story still remains the best out of all of them.

* [[spoiler: WorldWarIII:]] [[spoiler: As the story progresses, there is a harrowing scene in chapter twenty-four where Hudson and Terry, whilst on a scouting trip, discover a Dictaphone that provides a CrypticBackgroundReference to what occurred a hundred and thirty two years later ''after'' the failure of Frank and his expedition. All over the world there had been bombings and war in every country because of the rips in the time continuum. Eventually a remnant of humanity flees to the past, to the IceAge, only to bring the world war with them. And with that the Dictaphone is switched off.]]

* {{Sequel}}: To the popular ''Lost in Time: Origins''. How do you know this story is popular in the IceAge fandom? It's the only one with RecursiveFanfiction ''and'' Lost in Time: Origins has a record 224 reviews with more coming as fans finish reviewing the story before moving on to the {{sequel}}. It also has fanart and a fanmade animation set up for it. (For more details, see above at {{Fanart}}) You can bet like hell that this story is popular for its well-written characterisations and intricate plot hinged upon mature themes, and the sequel should soon gain the same story and popularity mass as the original did, since these stories have ''quality''.

* NonLinearCharacter: [[spoiler: Hudson the dire wolf, who has been sent back in time in ''Origins'' by Secretary-General Sam Daniels on an important assignment - make sure the herd is safe. He originally comes from the 21st Century, having been born in the year 2208, and as such his appearance in the first timeline wherein he meets the herd proves his position as a NonLinearCharacter - his true timeline isn't the one he first appears in and he is in fact [[{{Hyperion}} travelling backward in time]].]]

* {{Doorstopper}}: As of chapter 35, the fanfic is now the equivalent of a 500 page novel - and the story isn't even finished yet! Currently, the fic is 197,174 words long complete, definitely a short {{Doorstopper}} but still the longest story in the archive. WordOfGod intends for the sequel ''Lost in Time: Yesterday's Child'' to be shorter in length (though still long).
