* In ''FanFic/OriginStory'', at one point Alex sings the first line of a MajorGeneralSong she heard in a YouTube video: "I am the very model of a [[MostCommonSuperpower busty superheroine]]..." It irritates her because, first, she can't get the tune out of her head, and second, the video, and thus the song, is about Alex herself.
