** EpilepticTrees: Tons of theories are sprouting up throughout the internet about these, most notably the first four cities. In particular, there is one blog that seems to have narrowed them down to their ''exact locations and names''.

Nowhere in the Liberation of Night destiny does it indicate that the Liberation itself will lead to anyone's death. True Death, in the Echo Bazaar universe, is actually imposed by the Judgements, whom the Liberation will destroy. References to death during that destiny indicate people killed by other people or by the monsters of the Neath, after rule of law breaks down, but never that they have died permanently. Additionally, while in real life the Earth would freeze without the Sun's light, and the solar system would be messed up without gravity, and so on, in the Echo Bazaar Universe, the removal of the sun and other stars would invalidate the laws of physics themselves, meaning that none of these things would necessarily happen. In short: there's no canon evidence that the Liberation would destroy the world. If anything, it would make people HARDER to kill.
* BlackAndGreyMorality: There are very few legitimately good people in Fallen London. The Devils and Criminals speak for themselves, the Constables are dedicated to upholding the law, and yet are firmly in the Masters' pockets, causing them to turn blind eye to the Bazaar's more underhanded actions, the Church is ultra conservative and constantly tries to stifle the creativity of the Bohemians, who themselves often cause political chaos and unrest in their desire to express their art. The Revolutionaries just want London out of the Masters' hands, but are willing to resort to terrorism and murder to achieve this, [[spoiler:and recent developments suggest that at least their leaders are {{Omnicidal Maniac}}s]].

* AmbiguouslyBrown: People from the Elder Continent (ex: the Presbyterate Diplomat and Bishop of St. Fiacre's tend to be very dark-skinned, but the Elder Continent's lack of a clear real-life counterpart culture leaves the question of race open and the Bishop [[spoiler:not being human and wearing the face of another]] complicates matters even further. Additionally, an [[ArtEvolution art update]] noticeably darkened the skin of several prominent characters: the Comtessa went from very white-looking to tan-looking and the Artist's Model from pale-skinned to brown-skinned (though her portrait ''is'' [[OnlySixFaces the same]] as the Turkish Girl's, so it's possible she may never have been white to begin with).

* AlwaysChaoticEvil: "Devils can't help but do mischief." [[spoiler:Possibly [[SubvertedTrope subverted]] however. There is at least one devil, the Absconding Devil, in an early quest, who seems to genuinely be benign and have feelings for a woman. He is said, by another devil, to have "gone native." And, while it's more ambiguous, there's a piano-playing deviless you can meet who seems to have no interest in souls. So, it's possible not all devils are bad - just most of them.]]
