* AscendToAHigherPlaneOfExistence: Qui-Gon and maybe [[spoiler:Padmé]].
* AffablyEvil: [[spoiler:Renust Nju]]
* Creator/AlanRickman: The author has said that he would play this character, complete with accent, if he was in the films.
* AlternateUniverseFic: and this turns into an AlternateContinuity
* AlwaysSaveTheGirl: Anakin, to the point of tricking Obi-Wan into thinking they were going somewhere else in order to save Padmé.
* AnguishedDeclarationOfLove: And it's much better than in the film.
-->'''Anakin:''' I never knew how much I loved you before, how much I cared, and how much it would hurt if I lost you.
* ArtificialLimbs: Padmé gets one of these.
* AtTheOperaTonight
* BodyDouble Sanné is this for Nalanda.
* CassandraTruth [[spoiler:Renust Nju]] knows his betrayal is this and this is why he lets her live, as [[YouWouldntBelieveMeIfIToldYou they wouldn't believe her if she told them]].

* DiedHappilyEverAfter [[spoiler:Padmé]]
* DiedInYourArmsTonight [[spoiler:Padmé]]

* EveryoneCanSeeIt Everyone can see the attraction between Anakin and Padmé (even '''Yoda''') but also knows about the problems with such a relationship.

* ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice When [[spoiler: Renust Nju]] is contained in a cage of lightsabers held together by Yoda, he [[CyanidePill kills himself with his own lightsaber]] and is '''carved up by the blades of the cage'''.

-->They were hanging on to the back of the speeder as it took a nosedive through the lines of air traffic. Anakin had his free arm around her and for once she didn't mind.
-->"I disconnected the engines," Anakin replied, though it was almost impossible to hear him.
-->"You WHAT?" She looked at him incredulously as the ground started to come into view.

* WigDressAccent Padmé in her disguise as one of Nalanda's handmaidens in the first two fan fics.
