* AdaptationExpansionAdaptationExpansion: And how. Elizabeth's journey is greatly expanded, with her meeting the witch from Hansel and Gretel among others.



* BrokenAesop: The story's feminist aesop is undermined by the ending, which has Elizabeth leave with the dragon, effectively relying on a male character.



** Might cross into InterspeciesRomance depending on how much you read into the reprise of Elizabeth's IWantSong

* MagicSkirt: That paper bag has a ''really'' high hemline and Elizabeth presumably doesn't have any underwear. (You know, it would really make more sense for her to wear it the other way around with the opening at the top.)
