* PrematureEmpowerment: Common practice in UrbanFantasy stories, most notably those dealing with [[WolfMan werewolves]], [[VampireTropes vampires]], or other [[ViralTransformation infectious paranormal]]. These books feature a number of characters to whom this happened, for example.

Added DiffLines:

* ArbitrarySkepticism: Werewolves have recently gone public; the fae have been officially out for a decade or so, but the protagonist has to spend some time explaining to people that vampires are also real, her ability to see ghosts is frequently disbelieved, and by the sixth book, someone who has relatives who shapeshift doesn't believe that Mercy can do so too. There is much LampshadeHanging.


Added DiffLines:

* OurVampiresAreDifferent: Vampires become weak if they don't drink blood every once in a while. Most vampires keep a "flock" of humans at their house to feed on. They can avoid killing if they want to, but only Stefan really makes an effort to do so. Being a vampire's "sheep" has fringe benefits -- it extends your natural lifespan, and gives you resistance to blood-borne diseases like HIV or leukemia. Vampires are dead during the day (but they don't need to return to their original coffin -- at one point, Stefan spends the day in Mercy's closet), but come back to unlife at night. They can be killed by the standard methods, but the best one is fire. Beyond that, the circumstances under which any particular vampire is created can sometimes provide them with unique abilities shared by few, if any, of their own kind.

* ShamelessFanserviceGirl: As a long-time shape-shifter, Mercy doesn't mind being seen nude by those who are familiar with shapechangers, but makes a conscious effort to keep herself covered in front of those who might misinterpret her casual nudity as casual sexuality. (Except for [[ContemptibleCover those covers]]. Seriously, standing around in a lacy black bra holding a wrench? What the hell?)

'''Mercy:''' I jerked down my jeans and underwear so I was naked on the dark sidewalk. Anyone looking out their window or driving by would get a show. I didn't care. Being a shapeshifter had gotten me over modesty by the time I was old enough to know what the word meant. That didn't mean I was comfortable running
around naked in front of everyone I knew. Once upon a lacy black bra holding time, Stefan had kind of had a wrench? What thing for me. I usually avoided being naked in front of him just like you don't hold out a slab of meat in front of a lion while planning on keeping the hell?)food to yourself.

* MsFanservice: While the covers may exaggerate her a bit, Mercy herself fits this. The number of times she's been seen naked or the times she had to strip off her clothes are endless. There have also been times Mercy is seen wearing only her underwear.

\n* MrFanservice: Adam fits this. Mercy loves to remind the reader of his good looks. Thanks to being a company owner, he's been seen many times wearing nice and fancy suits. Thanks to being a werewolf, he's been seen naked as well.

There have also been times Mercy is seen wearing only her underwear. Sometimes she will wear nice dresses, usually on dates with Adam. Though she constantly denies that she's beautiful, it's somewhat implied the other characters think the opposite. She was even considered eye candy by a television crew trying to film her and the pack in Silver Bourne.
