* ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'':
** Big Walder is smaller than Little Walder. They got their names for their place in the Frey line of succession.
** In Essos, Jorah Mormont is nicknamed Jorah the Andal. He's from the North, which makes him descended from the First Men rather than the Andals.



** A similar example occurs in ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'' with Big Walder and Little Walder.
** In Essos Jorah Mormont is nicknamed Jorah the Andal. But Jorah is from the North, which makes him descended from the First Men not the Andals.

** A no-ship ''is'' very positively a ship. Same goes for a no-chamber.
*** The idea is that they exist in "no-space," where the Guild can't see them with their powers. So, it's circuitous, but it does make sense.

Added DiffLines:

* In the ''Literature/WarriorCats'' series, ''Cloudstar's Journey'' isn't actually about a journey. The emotions he experiences in it could be called one, but that's a bit of a stretch, and considering that we knew from other books that the character does eventually lead his Clan on a literal journey, fans were expecting that to be what the novella was about.

* The EldritchAbomination Cthulhu only appears in one of the Creator/HPLovecraft stories that make up the original CthulhuMythos, and only a small handful of the stories even acknowledge him. Though Cthulhu is definitely [[EnsembleDarkhorse the most iconic character in the mythos]], the vast majority of the stories in it don't feature him at all. Technically, "The Great Old Ones Mythos" would be a more accurate title.
