* BecauseDestinySaysSo: Pentacles Practical Magic plays this straight. A Princess may spend a wisp and turn one of her Aspirations, Dreams or Vocation into a Destiny. She selects how she's going to fulfill it and she gains bonuses whenever she acts in favor of her Destiny. However, she also receives Penalties whenever she tries any other ways to fulfill it! For example, if the Princess wanted to "Arrest Al Capone for the murder of Luigi", she's shut herself off from all attempts to "arrest Al Capone for Tax Evasion".

* AllAccordingToPlan: Diamonds' current Practical Magic allows its Nobles to invoke this. By first spending an hour minimum researching and planning towards a broad goal (e.g. uncover proof of a CorruptCorporateExecutive's crimes) and spending a Wisp while in action, a Princess can declare this trope in response to developments, making the necessary rolls. For instance, upon noticing a laser tripwire she may declare that she disabled the system before showing up. She only expound upon developments, though: she cannot {{Retcon}} them (she cannot have disabled the alarm if it's already gone off, though she can have arranged to jam the alarm so it doesn't reach the police).

* UnspokenPlanGuarantee: Diamonds' current Practical Magic allows its Nobles to invoke this. After spending at least an hour researching and planning for a broad goal (e.g. "uncover proof of a CorruptCorporateExecutive's crimes"), a Princess can then in pursuit of that goal spend a Wisp to respond to new developments with a declaration of "ah, I planned for this". For example, upon finding a fingerprint lock in a mansion, she may that declare she has already acquired a copy of the necessary fingerprints, making rolls for the actions required where necessary. She cannot {{Retcon}} events that have already happened, though (if a burglar alarm goes off, she can't have disabled it); she can only expound upon them (she can have been sure to jam the alarm so that it wouldn't get a signal to the police).

Added DiffLines:

* WakeUpGoToSchoolSaveTheWorld: A problem for underage Princesses, but downplayed. First, fighting the Dark is usually much more important than going to school. Second, part of the job of the local Confraternity is to provide trustworthy adults who can vouch for why Daddy's little girl came home late on a school night with her face all messed up.

Added DiffLines:

* ClarkKenting: Transformation conceals a Princess' identity, and it's difficult (but not impossible) to put the two together.


Added DiffLines:

* TheMasquerade: Not enforced, but necessary. There isn't any rule against revealing the Light to individual {{Muggles}} (though magic, in the World of Darkness, is inherently terrifying to people not in the know, so being careless can hurt people's brains). But using magic in public means that the Darkness can track you more easily, which may end in a very nasty creature finding out your identity (or simply your mundane allies) and going after your loved ones.

* TheExtremistWasRight: One undeniable fact about Storms is that it ''will'' annihilate the Darkness (and Alhambrans, for that matter). It's ''hard'' to make things right after a Tainting, but just burning everything with green flame and acid ''will'' fix the Taint and it ''won't'' bring more Darkness to the world (at least not directly). The question is whether it's worth it to find a better way.

* BlessedWithSuck: Since this is the NewWorldOfDarkness, this par for the course. You are a MagicalGirl with the ability to smite the darkness with the PowerOfLove but now, the evil and corruption of the world is a source of literal ''pain and suffering'' for you. The forces of Darkness, are ''extremely'' dangerous adversaries who are not above targeting your friends of loved ones if they ever found about them. The inevitable double life that comes from being a Princess is exhausting, and makes any semblance of normalcy all but impossible. Last but not least, you are just as likely to be targeted by Tears and Storms as you are by the Darkness.
