* Literary example: Amaranta Buendía goes through this ''twice'' in ''Literature/OneHundredYearsOfSolitude''. The first time, she was a teenager [[TheGloriousWarOfSisterlyRivalry caught in a vicious rivalry with her stepsister Rebeca]]. She prays for something horrible to happen and keep her from killing the other girl; soon after, their sister-in-law Remedios has a [[DeathByChildbirth fatal miscarriage]]. The second time, Amaranta was an adult, and her DoggedNiceGuy Gerineldo Márquez was in jail. She made a flippy remark about his possibly being in line for execution when Amaranta's mother tells her to marry the guy. Some days later, Colonel Márquez ''is'' marked for death ''via'' firing squad, and only Amaranta's older brother (Colonel Aureliano)'s threats save him from execution.

** Possibly a subversion, considering that Nancy's sister was also skipping meals in order to lose weight, and may have fallen because she wasn't eating enough.
*** It should be mentioned that this second interpretation is what most of the characters in the book believe, including those who know about Nancy's powers.
