** ''Black, White and Shades of Mediochre'' is a pun on 'ochre' and a reference to the MoralityKitchenSink ([[BlackAndWhiteMorality Black, White]] and [[GreyAndGreyMorality Shades of Grey]]). Hopefully not a reference to any other [[FiftyShadesOfGrey shades of grey]].

YMMV and Trivia
* NamesTheSame: "Not that Queen" and "Different Merlin."

* NamesTheSame: "Not that Queen" and "Different Merlin."FetusTerrible: The necromancer [[spoiler:possessed his current body when it was an embryo.]]

* FoetusTerrible: [[spoiler: The necromancer possessed his current body when it was an embryo.]]

* NamesTheSame: Causes some confusion, since Jacqueline Sable is given the media nickname 'Creator/JackBlack'.

* TrappedByMountainLions: Joseph and Dhampinella get temporarily removed from the main action due to being stuck outside normal space in Fervour's building. However, they do put their time isolated to good use in deducing the true identity of Carnelian.

* HalfBreedDiscrimination: The Chlodoveches like the half-human Dhampinella even less that they like her father.

In addition, it has become customary for the author to write a "[[ChristmasEpisode Christmas Special]]" short story every December - seemingly working his way through the main party of characters and focusing one story on each. Thus far, these include: * ''[[https://www.facebook.com/notes/the-mediochre-q-seth-series/born-to-raise-the-sons-of-earth-mediochreverse-christmas-special-1/719324878097490 Born to Raise the Sons of Earth]]'' - featuring [[TheLancer Joseph Carrion]]. * ''[[https://www.facebook.com/notes/732361073460537/ Please to Put a Penny in the Old Man's Hat]]'' - featuring [[TheHero Mediochre himself]]. ** ''[[https://www.facebook.com/notes/the-mediochre-q-seth-series/a-visit-from-the-yule-goat-a-mediochreverse-poem-of-ambiguous-canonicity/732372716792706 A Visit From the Yule Goat]]'' - a "poem of [[LooseCanon ambiguous canonicity]]" released alongside ''Please to Put a Penny in the Old Man's Hat''. * ''[[https://www.facebook.com/notes/the-mediochre-q-seth-series/to-you-and-your-kin-christmas-special-3/961178923912083 To You and Your Kin]]'' - featuring [[TheBigGuy Dhampinella]].

Added DiffLines:
[[folder: To You And Your Kin (Short Story)]] * BigGuyLittleGuy: Orcus and Vitus, respectively. * ChristmasEpisode: The third official Mediochreverse "Christmas special". * CoolCar: Kind-of subverted. Demetrius owns a classic 1952 Rolls-Royce Silver Wraith - but it's almost certainly just for the name. * CreepyChild: Dhampinella, aged ten. * DumbMuscle: Orcus. According to Melinoe, he's "dumb as a sack of concrete". * EmotionlessGirl: Dhampinella, even moreso than usual. * EvilVersusEvil: Demetrius vs the Chlodoveches. * ExpositoryHairstyleChange: As a child, Dhampinella has long hair and a demure EmotionlessGirl personality, in contrast to her adult self's BoyishShortHair and stoic {{Badass}} personality. * FlashbackToCatchphrase: The story ends with Dhampinella and Melinoe referring to each other as 'outcast' and 'link' for the first time. * LastNameBasis: Demtrius prefers to use his last name (which is all the main book series ever calls him). Turns out, he does have a first name, and it's Albin. * MeaningfulName: Melinoe's Viscountess mother is named Erzsébet - also the real name of the historical [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elizabeth_B%C3%A1thory Countess Elizabeth Bathory]], a notoriously blood-obsessed serial killer. * NouveauRiche: Demetrius, in contrast to the more traditional but less smarmy OldMoney Chlodovech family. * OlderThanTheyLook: Dhampinella was ten years old in 1983, making her somewhat older than Joseph. In fairness, she's not human. * OldMoney: The Chlodovech family. * OppositesAttract[=/=]OddFriendship: Melinoe and Dhampinella, due to being raised by an OldMoney crime family and a NouveauRiche "modern" gangster, respectively. * ParentalNeglect: Dhampinella and Melinoe bond over their shared experiences of crappy parenting. * TheQuietOne: Dhampinella was this anyway, but it turns out she was worse as a child. She has exactly one spoken line in the entire story. Oddly, Melinoe is apparently good enough at reading whatever signals Dhampinella does give off to continue the conversation, leading to something like a NewhartPhonecall between two people who are both in the same room. * SpiritedYoungLady[=/=]RebelliousPrincess: Melinoe may enjoy being a Vampire, but what she enjoys more is breaking tradition to annoy her mother. * SunglassesAtNight: Demetrius keeps his sunglasses on inside. [[spoiler: It's because he intends to set off a light charm if things don't go his way]]. * TeleportSpam: Vitus is so twitchy he can't ''help'' doing this. He uses it to his advantage when he fights. * TitledAfterTheSong: Named for a line in 'We Wish You a Merry Christmas'. The full phrase is "Good tidings we bring[=/=]To you and your kin", making this an ironic CompleteTheQuoteTitle, since the tidings brought between the two families are ''far'' from good. * ThoseTwoBadGuys: The Viscountess uses her brother Vitus and her broodchild Orcus as henchmen. * WomanScorned: The Viscountess ''really'' does not like her ex-husband.
