* WorldWarII: Like all of the books in the series except ''Literature/DoomsdayBook'', the Blitz is apparently the nexus of all space and time.

''Blackout'' and ''All Clear'' is one book divided into two, written by Creator/ConnieWillis, and set in her "Fire Watch"-universe (along with ''Literature/DoomsdayBook'' and ''Literature/ToSayNothingOfTheDog''). The books were published only a few months apart, in 2010, and were given a HugoAward as a single work.

And then things start to go wrong. Events don't go as planned. Things [[ItGotWorse get worse]]. And suddenly, none of their drops to the future are opening. Nobody, it seems, is coming to get them...

move YMMV tropes to YMMV page
* FridgeBrilliance: Other than her very early books, Willis's novels are very firmly divided into the categories of comedy and tragedy. Except this one - which is it? It turns out [[spoiler:Sir Godfrey has been telling us all along in his stage instructions "This is a comedy, not a tragedy!" and ultimately asks this of Polly (knowing she knows the future) who tells him "It is a comedy."]]

* TearJerker: 50% of the books are tearjerkers. The rest are moments of [[HeartwarmingMoments heartwarming]] and [[MomentOfAwesome awesome]]. ** Of particular note is [[spoiler:Sir Godfrey]]'s goodbye ("[[spoiler:Is it a comedy or a tragedy?]]") and [[spoiler:Eileen]]'s experiences at VE Day.
