* When you by plant care supplies in Tending to the Needs of a Singular Plant, you're told you fail to pot it because "the roots run deep below your lodgings." Even if you live in a second-floor apartment over a book store. Is the tap root running through the book shop below hidden somehow, or is it an UnusuallyUninterestingSight?

* You may occasionally encounter the [[ArcWords North]]bound Parliamentarian, who seems jovial, if a bit odd; you will have the chance to help her pass a bill, or ask her questions about other places such as the Tomb Colonies. She's also a [[ThingsManWasNotMeanToKnow Seeker Of The Name]]. Given [[PressXToDie how much]] that quest costs seekers personally, and the harsh attitude of the Masters towards them and [[spoiler: Mr. Eaten]], how on earth did someone like that get elected? And if she started seeking ''after'' she was elected, what has she done with the power of her position, and what has she done to ''keep'' it? She's hardly subtle about her intentions.

** Though this doesn't explain why only monogamous marriage is allowed then. Neither it explains why [[spoiler: Master's plan with creating more love stories with Jack-of-Smiles didn't work]].

* The text for the Order of the Wistful Rose, Second Class reads as such: "Whoso watereth seeds with their tears: salt shall be returned unto them. Whoso watereth seeds with another's blood: salt shall be returned unto them." Sounds like the typical pseudo-biblical prose from the other Order flavor texts, right? Well, in competitive gaming, it's common to call a SoreLoser "salty." Getting to Wistful Rose Second-Class requires a winning streak of at least 3 Knife-and-Candle victories. You've probably [[StealthPun induced a bit of "salt" in your opponents]], to get that far.

* If you are unlucky, it is possible for you to receive so much suspicion from eating spore-toffee at the Carnival to the point that you can get thrown in prison. You might first think that this is completely ridiculous. After all, it is entirely possible that you received your wounds from working with and helping out the constables! And how can eating sweets be considered a crime? Well, you DID escape from Newgate Prison at the very beginning of your story, and since it is the favored snack of the criminal classes, other people might decide to find out who you are after seeing you with a bag of them, thereby uncovering that you are in fact an escaped prisoner.

* There's a ''very'' good reason why Fallen London is [[PoliticallyCorrectHistory much more lenient about sexual preferences than the historical one]]: [[spoiler: The Bazaar feeds on love, and it's not a picky eater, so the Masters may have had a hand in legalizing non-heterosexual relationships in order to feed it more love]].
