[[folder:General tropes for the series as a whole]]
* IdiosyncraticEpisodeNaming: A lot.
** OneWordTitle for the title of each story.
** The chapter titles, for those that have multiple chapters.
*** ''Inscape'': The chapters are all named after playground and parlor games.
*** ''Avocation'': Most of the titles are {{Job Title}}s, named after the job that Penumbra had before that chapter, ''[[https://www.fimfiction.net/story/68226/3 Assistant Pastry Chef]]'', ''[[https://www.fimfiction.net/story/68226/4 Preening Technician]]''.
*** ''Pi'': All named after properties of circles. ''[[https://www.fimfiction.net/story/87692/1/-/chapter-1-circumference Circumference]]'', ''[[https://www.fimfiction.net/story/87692/2 Diameter]]'', ''[[https://www.fimfiction.net/story/87692/3 Ratio]]''
*** ''Pandelirium'': Every chapter shares its title with a song by the Legendary Shack Shakers, and the whole story is named after one of their albums.
*** ''Transdementia'': Each chapter is named after a song by School of Seven Bells.
* OneWordTitle: Multiple:
** ''Avocation'': A few, ''[[https://www.fimfiction.net/story/68226/1 Correspondence]]'' is the first chapter, and ''[[https://www.fimfiction.net/story/68226/9 Avocation]]'' is the last.
** Also a form of IdiosyncraticEpisodeNaming, in some cases:
*** Every story in this series has such a title.
*** Disregarding the chapter numbering, ''Avocation'''s titles are all single words.

* WrongGenreSavvy: Princess Luna incorrectly guesses Pinkie's train of thought concerning the Nightmare near the end:
-->'''Princess Luna''': You needn't draw this out with an extended interrogation; I can see where this train of thought leads. You are about to inform me that the Nightmare was [[spoiler:my imaginary friend, likely forgotten for the same reason that Twilight Sparkle forgot about you when you manifested]], are you not?
