* TheCameo: in ''Jinx High'', Tannim from the ''[=SERRAted=] Edge'' series shows up as a student at Jenks High School. He has the nerve to get Diana on the dance floor - and in ''Chrome Circle'' he refers to witnessing Diana and [[spoiler: Faye's]] knock-down magical fight in the school parking lot. It was the trigger for Tannim getting 'serious about magic... or else it was going to have me for lunch.'



* SexMagic: The villain of the book can (and does) use other forms of magic, but seems to prefer sex magic when it comes to controlling people.

Added DiffLines:

* ActuallyRealMagic: This trope is how Diana and Mark originally met (the scene is a flashback in ''Burning Water''). During their college days, one of Mark's buddies was studying anthropology, and organized a Halloween seance to see if there might be something to those old rituals. They were trying to summon Julius Caesar and got a demon instead. Diana had to put studying for her mid-terms aside to rescue Mark.

Added DiffLines:

* DemonicPossession: The BigBad of ''Jinx High'' tries crossing this trope with SoulJar -- the plan is to summon three demons and bind them into the electric guitars used by the band playing at Spring Prom. The demons are under orders to pump as much negative energy as possible into the music, triggering a riot (and giving said villain far more blood magic energies than were spent for the summoning). [[spoiler:Unfortunately, one of those guitars was ''already'' occupied by a spirit that wanted nothing to do with this, thank you. Diana and the "good" guitar manage to fry the other guitars and send the demons back to Hell.]]

Added DiffLines:

* GasStationOfDoom: The opening scene of ''Jinx High'' has a character walking to a closed gas station to use the pay phone (the book was written before everyone and his goldfish had a cell) and promptly becoming Eldrich Horror Chow.

* CrazyPrepared: Despite her increasing recklessness during ''Jinx High'', [[spoiler: Fay Harper]] the villian, is this. [[spoiler: continual GrandTheftMe or not, it's the only reason she's lived this long.]]



* GrandTheftMe: [[spoiler: Fay Harper]] has been pulling this since before the American Revolution.

* GrandTheftMe: [[spoiler: Fay Harper]] has been pulling this since before the American Revolution. [[spoiler: What makes it even more horrible is that she can only do it to ''her own child''. Fay's been an almost literal Black Widow for centuries; marrying for wealth and breeding stock, killing her husband, then effectively killing her children - or in the real Fay's case, keeping her locked up in an asylum, just in case.]]

** Jinx High was written in the early nineties. Maybe the law was different, then? Or maybe Fay was complaining about the social constraints rather than the legal ones - [[spoiler: she definitely didn't want anyone thinking of the rich, 'orphaned' homeschooled girl being so weird they came to check on her on a regular basis. Going to high school may be boring, but as long as she keeps up the facade it's probably by far the safest option (not to mention all the Power she could skim off the seething hormonal dramas of hundreds of teens penned up together for 30-odd hours every week)]]. ...Or maybe Lackey just ignored that fact because she needed Fay in high school in order to cross paths with Diana.
