** The shed with the open padlock and the dog whining inside.
** The chalk drawings of "Stray Dog".
** The children with the bags on their head hitting something in a sack.
** The boarding pass for a flying fish.

* BookEnds: [[spoiler: The first location you find in the game is a "Rickety Shed" with a padlock, a small spot for an animal and the sound of a dog whining. The game ends with Jennifer locking Brown in the shed with him whining for her, the narration clarifying that she locks him in there now to keep him safe.]]

Added DiffLines:

* BlueBlood: Invoked -- the Red Crayon Aristocrats use titles to reflect their status, which correspond directly to the female rankings in the actual British peerage. Oddly, the girls decline to use ''Marchioness'', a senior rank which sits between Duchess and Countess, and ''Viscountess'', which ranks below Countess. In descending order:
** Wendy -- ''Princess''
** Diana -- ''Duchess''
** (not used) -- ''Marchioness''
** Eleanor -- ''Countess''
** (not used) -- ''Viscountess''
** Meg -- ''Baroness''
** Amanda -- has no title, and represents the "poor" or working-classes.

''Rule of Rose'' is an [[AdventureGame adventure]]/[[SurvivalHorror survival horror]] game for the PS2 set in an [[OrphanageOfFear orphanage]]/[[GlobalAirship airship]] in [[WorldWarOne post-war]] England... '''or is it?''' It should be noted before going any further that the entire game is difficult to summarize for all sorts of reasons: the elaborate use of FairytaleMotifs, the [[UnreliableNarrator narration]], the [[TrappedInAnotherWorld setting]] (and [[AllJustADream the setting]]... and [[DeadAllAlong the setting]]), the surrealist horror aesthetic, and the purposely uneven story-telling. All this is used to weave a [[{{Grimmification}} broken fairytale]] about [[HumansAreBastards thoughtless cruelty]], [[LoveHurts wrecked love]], and [[SillyRabbitIdealismIsForKids childlike longing for an idealized adult reality]], culminating into an unusually thoughtful and heartbreaking story of [[ComingOfAgeStory self-actualization and growing up]].
