* ForeShadowing: Greek mythology really helps out with picking up hints and foreshadowing in ''Dumped on the Rooster'' (a story that seems to be canon but may or may not be). Like the mention of [[spoiler:gold apples, which could either be related to Eris and the Apple of Chaos or the Hesperides and Hera. Or the river Lethe, which was the river of oblivion that dead people drank or bathed in when they died to forget their entire lives. And was I the only one that was a little curious about the [[Myth/ClassicalMythology middle-aged woman]] [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hecate standing at a crossroads, holding a snake?]]]] *** And now, a love for puzzles and lyric reading helps out too. [[spoiler:The lyrics of the lullaby the... who knows, the mist sings, taken away from the story attached to it about the Highland clearances, sounds like it's about people being shipped off to be slaves, which matches the implication that, somewhere along the line, V and many other elves were forced into slavery. Taken with the story, it's about people being violently displaced, which also matches the description of V's [[WorldWarOne World War-esque flashback.]] ''Then'' [[EveryoneIsJesusInPurgatory there's the mention of dreams]], which the Oneiroi were the gods of, so the mist person might be part of the Oneiroi, and the crazy women chasing them might be part of it too.]]]]

Haven't read it. Never will. If it's wrong, feel free to remove it. Just going by the fact that Aphrodite was mentioned below.
Added DiffLines:
* AdaptationInducedPlotHole: Aphrodite's very existence, despite it having been previously established that her and her entire pantheon were {{Deader Than Dead}}ed by the Snarl long before the present world even existed.

Dead Little Sister has been renamed to Cynicism Catalyst. It's not about dead siblings. Misuse and Zero Context Examples will be deleted.
* DeadLittleSister: Terentius and Octavius ''thought'' they had one. [[spoiler:It turns out badly when they find Deirdre and she uses Terentius's feelings against him.]]

You cannot avert things hard.

* NotIfTheyEnjoyedItRationalization: [[spoiler:Deirdre]] points to this rationale as the reason for raping [[spoiler:Redcloak]]. [[spoiler:She]] manipulates the situation so the victim can't help but get physical pleasure from the rape, [[MoralEventHorizon maximizing the trauma sustained.]] [[spoiler:She probably also planned it so that his own body betrayed him to the point where he can't help but blame himself.]] But on it's own, the trope is averted hard.
