* InvisibleToNormals: Some magical things cannot be seen without an ability like TrueSight. These include spirits and blindsprings. [[spoiler:Curiously enough, Harris can see a spirit even when the rest of the Spiritualist can't until Rajani makes Indra visible.]]

* MagicAIsMagicA: Turns out that, unlike what Academists believed, Orphic magic has rules and restrictions, making Orphics NotSoInvincibleAfterAll. [[spoiler:As seen in WhamLine apparently there is only ''one'' magic in this world but two approaches: One relies on innate talents and communication with spirits (Orphics), the other on knowledge and practice (Acadeics), you do know however ''need'' the talent to excel at any of them.]]

* MysticalPlague: After [[FisherKing the ascend of the Academists and the overthrown of the royal family]], Aberwelle has being hit by a plague. It's implied it's because of the weak and/or imprisioned spirits, as they're connected to nature. [[spoiler:It's also causing magic to slowly dissapear from Aberwelle, and Rajani implied it's the cause of Layla's illness.]]

** Harris, to some extent. According to [[WordofGod Word of God]], because Harris spent so much time in the Wickwold Forest blindsprings as a child while playing with Tammy, the time-altering magic began to affect him, to the point where it ended up stunting his growth, so he appeared fairly small for his age for a good portion of his youth. However, once he left for Kirkhall and was away from it for long enough, he began ageing normally again and was able to grow to look like a fairly normal adult.

* StarCrossedLovers: [[ZigZaggingTrope Zig Zagged]] in the weirdest way. First of all, Tamaura got into a MagicallyBindingContract with [[NatureSpirit Nature Spirits]] because [[spoiler: she wants to keep her older sister alive]] because of something [[MagicalSociety Academic Mages]] did. [[DoomedHometown We don't]] [[YouKilledMyFather know]] [[DeathByOriginStory what exactly happened]] to any or all of the members of the Llyn family to make Tammy hate Academists so much, [[NoodleIncident but we know it was bad.]] [[spoiler: [[TimeSkip 300 years later,]]]] Tammy meets Harris, who lives in a world where he has the means to become an Academic Mage, but is at first doubtful about it. Then, after knowing Tammy for a few years, he ends up [[DareToBeBadass wanting to become an Academist]] [[TookALevelInBadass to become enough of a Badass]] to save Tammy from the spirits. This makes Tammy upset and they leave on bad terms. [[TimeSkip Ten years later,]] [[HesBack Harris comes back]] a full-fledged Academist [[NiceJobBreakingItHero and “saves”]] [[DeliberatelyDistressedDamsel Tammy, who’s pissed off again.]] She now [[DiscussedTrope discusses]] the current [[WillTheyOrWontThey (and confusing)]] status of their relationship [[http://blindsprings.com/comic/blindsprings-page-thirty-three here.]] [[spoiler: Thus, the trope is [[ZigZaggingTrope Zig Zagged]] and [[DeconstructedTrope Deconstructed]] simultaneously, being that Tamaura can’t be in love with Harris not only because [[FaceHeelTurn he went to her sworn enemy’s side,]] but also because [[LoveMakesYouEvil he did so completely willingly for her sake]] and [[WeUsedToBeFriends she hates him/feels guilty for it.]]]] See also the MyGodWhatHaveIDone entry.

* TitleDrop: A "Blindsprings" is an alternative reality, invisible to those lacking the Sight, that it's connected to one or more spirits and are filled with great magic power. The Wayfarers, while unaware of their true nature, use Blindsprings as hideaways and because of the Academists' using Sigils all over the city and lack of "maintaince", Blindsprings all over the city (and possible, the country) are either dead or near-dead.

Added DiffLines:

* HumanoidAbomination: Gravers are this to Tammy. She can feel how their magic have been alterated, commenting that their magic is similar to hers but "it feels off". And that's nothing in comparation on [[TrueSight how she]] [[http://www.blindsprings.com/comic/blindsprings-page-two-hundred-and-eighty-seven sees them]].

** Ewan' past involves a bombing attack, Tammy's accidental earthquake was enough to {{Trigger}} him so badly he forgot about the protective magic built into his wheelchair.

** Subverted when he decides to [[spoiler: TakeaThirdOption by making himself a tourniquet and bandage up his arm with pieces torn from his sleeve.]]
* DivineRightOfKings: The Orphics, a WitchSpecies, claimed that they needed to be in charge to satisfy the spirits and keep both the land and the magic alive. All this is true. Unfortunately, only Orphics can see spirits, so the common people assumed that they were just lying to justify their rule. It certainly didn't help that the ruling family was caring less and less for their kingdom as time went on, instead amusing themselves with trinkets made by the new academic magic. The first academist eventually used these trinkets to overthrow and execute all of them except one, who escaped with the spirits.
