* You would have expected ''Literature/{{Overenskommelser}}'' by Creator/SimonaAhrnstedt to play DeceasedParentsAreTheBest straight, considering how Beatrice is treated by her uncle. But while she misses her parents, Beatrice can still admit that they had flaws.
* Gerridon and Jamethiel of ''Literature\ChroniclesOfTheKencyrath'' were twins, and consorts--as well as the most infamous people in their people's history. Sounds like VillainousIncest, right? Well, no: twincest was culturally sanctioned in their time, and very traditional. And the ''heroes'' are shaping up to be twincestuous too!

To put this another way, a trope of the form "X are often Y" is not subverted by every X you can think of that isn't Y. If someone is murdered and there's a butler around, but he didn't do it, that's not automatically a subversion of TheButlerDidIt. But if the writer makes it ''look'' like a typical example of TheButlerDidIt, then reveals he didn't, ''that's'' a subversion.
