* WhatDoesSheSeeInHim: A rather dark example concerning Katherine's attraction to Thomas Culpepper. [[JerkAss Aside from being a conceited, arrogant prick,]] he's also a rapist who committed murder when the woman's husband tried to stop him. The Duke of Norfolk and Jane Boleyn ponder this, and conclude that Katherine is a HormoneAddledTeenager who will screw AnythingThatMoves provided [[AllGirlsWantBadBoys he's hot enough]].

Added DiffLines:

* MadLibThrillerTitle: While not a thriller, the title fits the pattern, and the numerous [[TitleDrop title drops]] make the phrase just as ominous as it would be in a real thriller.


Added DiffLines:

* SwitchingPOV: The story is narrated by 3 characters: Jane Boleyn, Anne of Cleves and Katherine Howard.

* BrutalHonesty:
** The Duke of Norfolk delivers one to Jane after Katherine is arrested and [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness he no longer has use for her]]. He tells her how evil she is and that nobody would take her as a wife.
** Also The Duke of Norfolk to Katherine when she is about to be taken to the Tower. The reason here is that she doesn't seem to realize that she will be executed for real.



* CatchPhrase: For Katherine: "Now let me see, what do I have now?" Becomes a MadnessMantra as the story progresses.

** Katherine also likes to say ''voila''.


Added DiffLines:

* InsaneTrollLogic: The king's reasoning behind the accusation of several people once he decides to get rid of Anne. At once she conspires with the papists, then next time with the reformers. He can't keep a consistent story, but apparently he doesn't need to, as he can simply execute anyone for treason who disagrees with him in anything.
* InsanityDefense: Jane tries this to save her from the execution. It doesn't work because the king just changed the law so anyone can be executed even if they are mad.


Added DiffLines:

* NoblewomansLaugh: Katherine uses this at one point to show that she is really fit to be at court.
* ObfuscatingStupidity: After her divorce, Anne decides to pretend that she doesn't understand/care about the king's politics so that she can be clear of any accusations of treason.
* OneSteveLimit: Averted. At one point a [[LampshadeHanging a lampshade is hung]] on it when Anne comes to court.
--> "She introduces my maids by name and I smile at the unending line of Katherines and Marys and Elizabeths and Annes and Bessies and Madges."


Added DiffLines:

* TitleDrop: Done several times in different contexts.


Added DiffLines:

* YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness: The Duke of Norfolk used Jane to be close to the Queen (either one) and help him in his plan. When things start to go wrong, he completely abandons her and leaves all blame on her. He even tells her that the promise of a French Count as a husband was just a lie to keep her working for him.
