* OddShapedPanel

to:

* OddShapedPanelOddShapedPanel: used primarily for action sequences



* ProtagonistCenteredMorality: a genuine occupational hazard for people who suffer from both Primary Protagonist Syndrome and MGSD. Flibbage appears to have invested a lot in converting Beansproat's protagonist centered morality to a relatively mild case of ItsAllAboutMe, if only for the good of the realm. Keti appears to have avoided this so far, having spent days crying over the price her friends (and Iordan in particular) paid to rescue her from her own insanity.

* GenreSavvy: Most of the fae are GenreSavvy and have a basic understanding of the TheoryOfNarrativeCausality. They teach it, but it only sticks well with fae.

* GenreSavvy: Most of the fae are GenreSavvy and have a basic understanding of the TheoryOfNarrativeCausality. They teach it, but it only sticks well with fae. Humans and eveh half humans like Keti and Beansprout can only comprehend the subject with great difficulty and have difficulty retaining the information.



**Dan interrupts Keti's attempt at an apology by hugging her while telling her to "Shut the hell uyp."



* IJustWantToBeNormal: Keti, after her ordeal: "I used to think my life was boring. Now I wish it was."



* SuperpoweredEvilSide

to:

* SuperpoweredEvilSideSuperpoweredEvilSide: Keti under the influence of the Sword, though her "superpowers" are really her protagonist, nymph, and werewolf powers unfettered by any inhibitions.



**Princess Flibbage deliberately tries to steer the narrative towards comedy for Keti's sake, and is very apologetic to Beansprout when her first attempt fails.



* ThickerThanWater

to:

* ThickerThanWaterThickerThanWater: Jin and Dan, Keti and her mother (surprisingly) averted with An and Kitty: An loves Kitty, but Kitty is too much of a sociopath to have true loyalty to her sister in return.

* AlwaysSaveTheGirl: Played with: the kids completely forget about rescuing Sparkle during their quest to retreive the sword and don't even realize they'd forgotten about her until she shows up weeks later to complain about it. Sorta-kinda played straight with Keti, though the other kids were as much interested in saving the whole world from her insanity as the were in saving Keti herself at that point.

**the story seems to have pegged Keti as the designated CoolLoser due to her PrimaryProtagonistSyndrome and [[FunnySchizophrenia Multiple Generic-induced Sanity Dysfunction]].



* HonoraryUncle

to:

* HonoraryUncleHeroicSacrifice: Iordan allows Keti to run him through in the hope that it will bring her back to her senses. He succeeds but the grief nearly breaks her.

* AsideGlance

to:

* AsideGlanceAsideGlance: A given, due to the variable opacity of the fourth wall to Fey.
