*** Justified arguably by the fact that in the story Antimony only tells her father that she tore up the card and is never seen actually doing it - hence why her family wouldn't think to look for the ID when Antimony was on the run.

* DealWithTheDevil: Played with. As a crossroads ghost, Aunt Mary has rules she can bend, and rules she can't.

* TheNicknamer: the Aeslin mice refer to the members of the Price-Healy family as gods and priestesses, and each member has a special title. Verity is the Arboreal Priestess, Antimony is the Precise Priestess, Fran is the Priestess of Unexpected Violence, Alex is the God of Scales and Silence, etc. These can gain retroactive tearjerker status when a posthumous divinity is applied (The God of Early Arrivals and Earlier Departures, The Violent Priestess, Who Never Learned to be Careful).

** Played with in ''Magic for Nothin''. One of the fire dancers believed herself human until her cryptid form manifested in her teen years. With none of her own kind around to teach her alternatives or discretion, and human food not sufficiently nourishing her, she turned in desperation to an alternate food source [[spoiler:[[HorrorHunger webbing up people until they liquefy and sucking up the resulting gunk]]]]. By the time Timpani meets her, she's no longer entirely without malice.

** Novella: "The Recitation of the Harrowing Pilgrimage of Mindy and Also Mork": immediate sequelette to ''Magic for Nothing'' starring the Aeslin Mice named in the title, plus Sam, Aunt Mary, Emery and some members of the Spencer Carnival. Published ''only'' on the author's Patreon.(Henceforth referred to as 'The Pilgrimage' rather than the Aeslin's liturgical name as used for the sake of Tropers' poor typing fingers.)

* AuthorAppeal: Both of the Price girls' signature athletic activities (Ballroom Dance for Verity and UsefulNotes/RollerDerby and Acrobatics/Trapeze for Antimony) are described in lavish detail by their author. By contrast, Alex's SCA is left largely in the background... [[JustifiedTrope justified]] because Alex's pastime cannot be parlayed as easily into a viable combat skill.
