* DramaticIrony: When Erique Claudin tries to have his work published, one of the publishers tells him that he never received it. Little did either of them know, was that the company was showing Erique's work to renowned music critic FranzLiszt to get his testimonial for its publication. When Erique hears his music being played to Liszt in the other room, he assumes that the company stole his music and [[FreakOut strangles the publisher to death]]. The publisher's wife then grabs a tray of etching acid and... well, you know the rest.
