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]].

Warning, '''spoilers below'''. This game is best experienced without prior knowledge of its plotline.


Added DiffLines:

* MeaningfulBackgroundEvent: When Jennifer wakes up in "The Funeral"'s opening cutscene, the floor around her is clearly empty save for a blanket. When the cutscene ends, [[spoiler:Brown]] has inexplicably appeared on the blanket. This is a big hint as to his [[DeadAllAlong true nature]].
