* BlackSpeech: Ogrese plays with this. The Prince's reaction to Ella's simple farewell in ogre language is, "It sounds pleasant, as sweet as honey and as smooth as oil, but is definitely evil: Ogres use these qualities to hunt by charming people into compliance. Hence, for those who have dealt with ogres:
-->'''Ella:''' [=AhthOOn SSyng!=] (''literally, "Much eating"'') That's farewell.\\
'''Charmont:''' It
sounds evil." Ella replies that it \\
'''Ella:''' It

* AndThenWhat: Mandy is fond of using this technique to educate Ella about the consequences of using big magic and thinking through her actions. When Ella uses an example of how Mandy could use her magic to stop it from raining, Mandy points out that such magic could cause a long-term drought, and then undoing the spell in turn could lead to overdoing the need for water and uncontrollable floods.



* ChekhovsGun:
** The order that Lucinda gives Ella after [[spoiler:she renounces big magic and thus can't undo Ella's curse]]: "If you need me, just summon me" (paraphrased). [[spoiler:When it rains on the masquerade ball's first night, Ella is compelled to call Lucinda, who gets her to the ball on time.]]
** Ella's WhatYouAreInTheDark moment (see below) gives her the strength and willpower to [[spoiler:say "No!" to Char's marriage proposal and break her curse.]]
** Hattie's vindictive jealousy of Ella and any girl who appears to do better than her ends up [[spoiler:causing her downfall: she unmasks Ella at the masquerade ball, tries to pass of Ella later on as a scullery maid, and openly orders GoToYourRoom and reveals her knowledge of the {{Geas}} to Char.]]



* HatesSmallTalk: Not exactly ''hate'', but all the Ayorthaians that Charmont stayed with for a year were like this. Not through snobbiness, either; it's just they're more contemplative, more appreciative of silence, and far too polite. Much to Charmont's displeasure.
** It's also implied that this behavior specifically applies to the Court, where Char was, but doesn't extend to the common Ayorthaians.
