* ClingyJealousGirl: Hermione, not just towards her boyfriend but towards all her guy friends. Lampshaded by various characters as they accuse her of not letting any girl (even Ginny, her friend) get close to 'her boys'.

* AbusiveParents - Lucius Malfoy, possibly the TropeMaker for Lucius being abusive, which is now considered a cliché in ''Harry Potter'' fanfiction

to:

* AuthorAppeal - The female characters are always excited whenever they get to wear old-fashioned {{Pimped Out Dress}}es which are [[CostumePorn thoroughly described]] -- sometimes enough to temporarily overshadow in their minds the life-threatening circumstances they are in. The girls also tend to think a lot about how the boys in their lives smell differently. Apparently this is important in weighing their relative attractiveness -- and no, none of them seem to actually smell bad.
* BeAWhoreToGetYourMan - When Harry and Hermione's relationship hits a rut in ''Draco Veritas'', Ginny suggests Hermione try this to get Harry's attention. Subverted in that Hermione tries it, but Harry hardly notices as he's naturally so busy angsting.
* BittersweetEnding: [[spoiler: Voldemort's defeated, Narcissa and Sirius are married, Harry and Draco are off to travel the world - but the two {{Official Couple}}s are (temporarily, at least) broken up]].

to:

* CatchAFallingStar - – The Weasleys rescue Harry in this manner at the end of ''Draco Dormiens''



* ComicallyMissingThePoint - In the third book, Lavender is asking Ginny which boys she prefers over others. She doesn't understand why asking her if she prefers Harry or [[BrotherSisterIncest Ron]] is "just sick" at first, but then remembers that Ginny used to have a crush on Harry.

* DancesAndBalls - Seem to happen a lot, including the the [[FandomSpecificPlot usual and inexplicable restaging of the Yule Ball]], although this series may be the TropeMaker there (well, aside fom ''[[Literature/HarryPotterAndTheGobletOfFire Goblet of Fire]]'', obviously). The weirdest instance of this: a formal ball is thrown for Harry's seventeenth birthday party in ''Draco Sinister''. Because Harry would have enjoyed that ''[[SarcasmMode way]]'' more than the low-key seventeenth birthday party he later had with the Weasleys in ''[[Literature/HarryPotterAndTheDeathlyHallows Deathly Hallows]]''. And whose idea was this? Sirius's! Because it's so in character for Sirius Black to throw a Creator/JaneAusten ball to usher his godson into wizarding adulthood.
* DeadpanSnarker - Initially Draco, but most of the main cast has this to some extent.
* DoorStopper - In terms of word count, the full trilogy is longer than the first six ''Harry Potter'' books. That's nearly twice the length of the original Russian version of ''Literature/WarAndPeace''. ''Literature/AtlasShrugged'' is less than two-thirds the length of ''The Draco Trilogy''.

* FandomSpecificPlot - As noted above, the Yule Ball plot. In the Cassie Verse, the Yule Ball is basically a high school prom, while the novel had it as part of the Triwizard Tournament and not an annual event. In ''[[Literature/HarryPotterAndTheGobletOfFire Goblet of Fire]]'', the Yule Ball is important enough to be attended by Ministry officials and have the most popular wizarding band provide the music. In the Draco Trilogy, it's [[PartySchedulingGambit trumped]] by something called the Seventh Year Pub Crawl, causing seventh years to actually regard the Yule Ball as beneath them. In ''Goblet'', the ball takes place on Christmas Day with Harry specially being amazed how many people were staying over break so they could attend. In the Draco Trilogy, it takes place ''weeks'' before Christmas break.

* HeelFaceTurn - Draco's character arc in the first story. Yes, present-day Draco fanfic writers, Cassie actually ''bothers to explain why Draco is on the good side''. At least she doesn't just take it for granted that we'll buy Draco hanging out with the Golden Trio.

* IHaveYouNowMyPretty - Salazar Slytherin's rather {{squick}}-inducing efforts to drug Hermione with love potion.
* InformedAbility - We're told that Draco can keep his emotions in check at all times, but he rarely does.
* {{Jerkass}} - Godric Gryffindor, despite being (supposedly) a good person. When you're smugly happy that a sixteen-year-old is dead, you're kind of a bastard.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold - Snape and Draco.
* KissingCousins - The romance between [[spoiler: Sirius and Narcissa]], who were later shown to be cousins in the books but were not related in the Draco Trilogy. To be fair, though, virtually all the main characters end up being related.

* KryptoniteFactor - Something called "adamantine" is basically kryptonite for wizards. Mainly it's there to stop Harry and Draco from resolving every plot in two seconds after they become [[UselessSuperpowers uber-powerful mega-wizards who don't need wimpy wands]]. Of course, even when adamantine isn't there, it's {{Lampshaded}} how thoroughly bad Harry and Draco are at being Magids, since they know very few spells and mostly have their wands anyway. In fact, Harry can barely do anything at all unless he's very, very angry.
* LostInImitation - A kind of fanfic version with the character of Draco Malfoy. Not portraying Draco as a two-dimensional bully was [[SeinfeldIsUnfunny actually a rather novel idea at the time]] and even after Cassie made him turn good, she didn't stray too far (most of the time) from what a hypothetical redeemed version of the character might be like. Of course, only the positive aspects of her version of Draco were picked up on and years later fanfic!Draco had decayed from snarky anti-hero to misunderstood [[TheWoobie Woobie]] who wouldn't hurt a fly.

* LoveMakesYouEvil - Pansy.
* LoveTriangle - several. Namely: Harry/Hermione/Draco, Ron/Hermione/Harry, Draco/Ginny/Seamus, Ginny/Draco/Blaise.....
* MalevolentArchitecture - It's practically impossible to enter Cassie's version of Malfoy Manor without getting killed at least three times.
* MissingEpisode - Cassie tried to [[InvokedTrope invoke]] this trope with regards to the whole fic, but the Internet has proved a WorthyOpponent.

* NotListeningToMeAreYou - Sirius tells Harry he's changed his mind and decided to marry Remus instead of Narcissa. Harry, predictably, is too busy with his own problems to notice.
* OnlyAFleshWound - Cassie is a big offender for giving characters wounds which could cause them to bleed to death in real life and having them completely shake it off.

* {{Plagiarism}} - Many dialogues and even full scenes were copied word-by-word from several published works, without credit.
* PowerPerversionPotential - Features a Polyjuice brothel!
* SealedEvilInACan - Salazar Slytherin.
* SheIsAllGrownUp - Ginny.
* ShoutOut - ''Draco Dormiens'' places Malfoy Manor near Chipping Sodbury, the birthplace of {{Creator/JK Rowling}}. The {{canon}} later placed it in Wiltshire.

* TakeThat - an unintentional one, given that it was written before the series finished, but happened when Hermione described how she believed she and Ron would end up together, and Harry and Ginny would too, and they'd spend ever Christmas together. Draco's response? "[[TastesLikeDiabetes How revolting]]."

There was also a good deal of controversy in fandom when the author was blacklisted from FanfictionDotNet for [[{{Plagiarism}} plagiarizing]] lengthy passages from a Creator/PamelaDean series without attribution (and, apparently, lying about having permission to use the passages in her fanfiction, although she did sort of get permission after she was caught). This is often confused with the series using a large amount of quotes and scenes from TV series (including ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'' and ''Series/{{Blackadder}}'') and several published works, which were credited at the end of each chapter. Avocado, the person who first discovered and reported the Pamela Dean plagiarism, wrote [[http://www.journalfen.net/community/bad_penny/8985.html#cutid1 here]] a recount of the plagiarism debacle.
