* CanonDefilement: The Fade arc takes a lot of liberties with Dragon Age canon. Chiefly, the idea that the pilgrimage to the Black City would be able to purify souls when in [[Franchise/DragonAge the actual games]] this is the place that initiated the darkspawn taint.

* DesignatedHero: Art can come off as this. For one, he was condescending, aggressive, and sanctimonious to a lot of people. He mouthed off a number of characters, often for petty reasons. He also ''assaulted'' Kaidan, a commanding officer, over Shepard's relationship when he met him on the Citadel after Horizon. It was surprising no one called him out on his behavior. The only form of reprisal was Tali calling him out on his crap in MV2. As for trying to change the course of canon for the better, he hasn't done much in the grand scheme of things. The only form of change he did was playing ShipperOnDeck between Shepard and Kaiden in the first entry and her and Thane in the second.

* SeasonalRot: Some fans accuse the fanfic of having this in the later fanfics, citing the overusage of other characters from other universes and the entire [[VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins Fade]] storyline.

** It goes ''even further.'' It sounds like FanFic/SpellbindingRadiance uses the same method of getting the hero to the canon universe in question, aka, [[spoiler: The person dying and entering the Fade in the right area so that they're reshuffled dimensionally. It's outright stated that Art's teacher and Ashley Williams did the same thing, so it's not a unique thing. If this is the case, than ''how many other Self-Insert fan fictions are the result of the death of the author?'']]

* JumpingTheShark: Chapter 39. The story went from primarily science-fiction with some mystical elements hinted at to weaving supernatural and spiritual elements right into the plot. [[spoiler: The Fade, a shared dreamspace/afterlife, is seen and visited, and Orange explains that there is a lot more going on than it looks.]]

* AngstWhatAngst: The tendency of this trope to show up in self-insert fiction where the author avatar just teleports into their world is heavily deconstructed. Almost as soon as he realizes he's in the Mass Effect universe, Art begins wondering what's become of every person he's ever come to really care about, and about what they must be thinking in turn. At first, Art brushes off the angst under the pretense that [[PlotlineDeath he can head home via Virmire]]. However, by the time he gets to Virmire he's truly gotten to know the Mass Effect cast, and so he begins greatly second-guessing himself on his desire to go home, torn between losing one group of people that he cares about to gain another. When he finally decides to attempt to go back to his home dimension, [[spoiler:it ends up not happening thanks to Shepard saving him at Virmire]]. After that, the angst comes for him with a major vengeance when he realizes that he'll never see the family and friends that he knew for basically his entire life. Even worse is that thanks to the cover story he made to avoid suspicion, he basically can't tell anyone about why he's really angsting and has to hold the real reason for his angst in. As if that wasn't enough, [[spoiler:Ashley Williams, the woman who taught him everything about how to use military-grade weaponry, a reasonably good friend of his, and '''''one of the people he was trying to save from her probable in-game fate on Virmire''''' was the one who died. Art blames her death on himself for not being able to convince Shepard to save her instead of him.]] After the obligatory OneWomanWail, he spends an entire chapter locked in his room while moaning about his predicament. He gets better [[AFriendInNeed thanks to Tali]].
** It gets worse. [[spoiler: In Mass Vexations 2, he finds out that fate would not let him die on Virmire, so he basically spent all that effort for nothing.]] However, [[spoiler: Ashley didn't die, she went space-travelling the way he did, so it's not that bad... technically.]]
