----
!! Fanfic/NoHoper provides examples of:
* AdaptationDyeJob: TheVirus turns Light's hair a bright (Kira) red.
* AdultFear
* AllGhoulsSchool: The House of Night.
* AllJustADream
* AlternateUniverse
* AndIMustScream
* AnimalsHateHim: Light, well horses do-which proves to be a problem during his equestrian class.
* AppealToObscurity: The fact that the whole fic was based on a tiny detail in the first book of the HON series.
* [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking Arson, Murder, And Jaywalking]]: From Light.
-->'''Light''': "It wasn't 'just' anything! I've barely been here 24 hours, and already I can see what the next four years are going to consist of: ''Sick'' minds, ''mind-numbing'' conversation, and disgusting, degenerative, disorganised ''HELL!''"
** Considering he's SuperOCD, that last one is probably justified.
* AscendedExtra: Considering that the author practically owns this trope, it is no surprise that [[WhatHappenedToTheMouse Kayla]] was brought in as a proper character again. Also Yamamoto (Light's friend from school who appears in a few pages of the manga and doesn't appear in the anime) is one of the few other characters that makes a showing from ''Manga/DeathNote'' canon. As for from the House of Night canon, Drew Partain - who'd only gotten a couple of mentions as Stevie Rae's [[ShipTease maybe boyfriend]] in the books - and 'Amanda', who only ever had one mention in the first book.
* BadassBookworm: Light
* TheBaroness: Neferet
* BerserkButton: Light has one or two... Also, never complain to Dragon Lankford about your safety gear.
* BitchInSheepsClothing: Neferet
* {{Blackmail}}: Light blackmails a ''teacher'' as part of his [[TheChessMaster schemes]].
* BrokenAce: Light of course.
* BrokenBird: Light- putting up an unbreakable mask for the world is his way of coping with tragedy.
* BullyingADragon: {{Lampshaded}}, when the other students begin to shun Light, he takes to reading [[{{Creator/StephenKing}} Stephen King]]'s ''{{Carrie}}''. [[{{Foreshadowing}} You can imagine how things are going to go.]]
** Lampshaded by literature professor Penthesilea
--> '''Prof. Penthesilea''':"...''{{Carrie}}'' as you'll soon find out, warns us of the danger of underestimation, of messing with the wrong person and not treating everyone with the respect they fully deserve. While this may be tempting for some, it will be an insult to the one you abuse, and may [[ComicallyMissingThePoint end in your untimely death]]."
* ByronicHero: Light. Passionate, brooding, vengeful, mad, bad, and dangerous to know.
* CampGay: Jack Twist
* CatsAreMean: Or rather are arrogant, spoiled, and expect to be worshipped like a Goddess [[spoiler: Cleo, Light's {{Familiar}}]].
* CatsAreSnarkers: Cleo
-->'''Light:''' You know what? I'm going to name you.
-->'''Cleo:''' 'Name me'? What do I need a name for? I am the best, how can anyone not know who I am? And you, what do you need a name for? You are so recognisable, you are unforgettable!
-->'''Light:''' And what's that supposed to mean?
-->'''Cleo:''' Nothing. I just think names are stupid. [[CrowningMomentOfFunny All you need to know is that you are a can-opener,]] and I am [[AGodAmI the Great-I-Am!]]
-->'''Light:''' Well, you deserve a name, you know, [[HypocriticalHumor one that doesn't invoke cries of 'blasphemy']].
* TheChessmaster: As soon as Light arrives in the House of Night he immediately sets to work with figuring out how it all works and aquiring allies [[spoiler: so he can properly plan his vengeance.]]
* ConditionedToAcceptHorror: [[spoiler: Light. His mother was killed right in front of him and then this is reinforced at the testing facility with the staff's casual attitude when most of the test subjects die.]]
* ContinuityNod: The picture in the Fledgeling Handbook of Queen Cleopatra is said to be on page 52 - guess where it is in the [[AllThereInTheManual real life version of the book]].
* CoolTeacher: Professor Lankford a.k.a. "Dragon" the fencing instructor and Professor [[spoiler: Erik Night]] the Drama professor.
* CosmicPlaything: Light
* CouchGag: Every chapter begins with a humorous slight at the original authors of the HON series.
* {{Crossover}}: An amazingly obscure one from the mind that brought you [[Fanfic/TheArtOfSubconsciousIllusion Death Note AND House M.D]].
* CulturalPosturing: Between the humans and the vampyres and arguing who is morally superior.
* CurbStompBattle: Damien is completely unprepared when Light gets serious during their fencing lesson.
* CursedWithAwesome: Light [[spoiler: since his transformation he's gained enhanced physical prowess and [[PlayingWithFire power over the element of fire]] (as well as others)]]
* DarkAndTroubledPast: Light. [[spoiler: Let's just say he has a very good reason to hate vampyres.]]
* DarkerAndEdgier: This brings the HON series into a much harsher light - it's not all about Goddess Worship.
* DarkIsNotEvil: the vampyres [[spoiler: though there are exceptions.]]
* DeconstructionFic: what's bound to happen when you throw [[KnightTemplar Light Yagami]] in with a cast of FriendlyNeighborhoodVampires...
* DepravedHomosexual / DepravedBisexual: (There is still some debate as to which is the case).
* DiscriminateAndSwitch: [[spoiler: [[AscendedExtra Amanda]] thinks that Light hates now-dead fledgling Diana because she turned her nose up at him during lunch that day. It's actually just because he's a [[TheSociopath sociopath]], probably. In any case, she ''was'' a fledgling vampyre. Also when Light goes berserk and nearly kills Damien during their fencing lesson, Damien wonders if he's a homophobe or something but then Light doesn't seem to have a problem with [[CampGay Jack.]] Light doesn't have a problem with him being gay-he has a problem with him being a vampyre.]]
* TheDitz: Kayla
-->'''Light:''' I like… science.
-->'''Kayla:''' Oh? Really?

* EvenTheGuysWantHim: Light wtih Jack and Damein.
* EvilOverlordList: #29 "[[ColorCodedForYourConvenience I will dress in bright and cheery colors, and so throw my enemies into confusion.]]" While visiting a human town Light dresses all in white [[CrazyPrepared presumably so his vampyre pallor will not be so noticeable.]]
* {{Familiar}}: Cleo
* FantasticRacism: Light is the most guilty of this.
* FatalFlaw: Light's {{Pride}} and desire for justice (thirst for vengeance) gets him into a lot of trouble.
* FixFic: According to WordOfGod, this is the author's attept at showing what The House of Night series would look like in the hands of a 'proper writer'.
* FlashbackNightmare
* FreakOut: [[spoiler: Light, when Drew gives him the newcomer Hazing of Extreme Gore.]]
* FreudianExcuse
* FriendlyNeighborhoodVampires: Many of the students and teachers at the House of Night seem like perfectly nice people. Subverted with [[spoiler: Neferet]] who is FauxAffablyEvil.
* FunWithAcronyms: The Scientists refer to the development of the anti-vampyre drug [[IncrediblyLamePun Denyxinil]] as the 'A.D.O.N project' (the Aversion or Destruction Of Night-children).
* FusionFic: Light's BackStory is changed to fit into The HON universe and instead of becoming Kira he's becoming a vampyre [[spoiler: and HunterOfHisOwnKind]].

* GratuitousJapanese: It helps that the author knows the language well enough.

* HolierThanThou
* HotScientist: Dr G. Primrose, the leader of the A.D.O.N, as noted (most often) [[EvenTheGuysWantHim by Light]]. Also [[BadassBookworm Light himself]].
* HumansAreMorons: Cleo seems to think that the majority of the two-legs are only good for opening cans.
* HumansAreTheRealMonsters: [[spoiler: [[CulturalPosturing Nerferet argues this and how humans oppress them for no reason.]] [[BerserkButton In response]] Light [[ShutUpHannibal begins listing the dates and details of all known vampyre attacks.]]]]
* [[spoiler: HunterOfHisOwnKind]]: [[spoiler: Light sets out to be this but then the vampyres he meets at the House of Night are just kids. [[BlackAndWhiteInsanity Light's inability to reconcile this with his belief that all vampyres are blood-thirsty monsters]] leads to several KickTheDog moments]].
* IdenticalLookingAsians: Lampshaded and exploited when Kayla approaches "the Japanese guy" at the coffee shop she expects a "cute little tourist reading the ''TaleOfGenji''", not Light Yagami.
* [[IHateYouVampireDad I Hate You, Vampyre Dad]]: [[spoiler: Light hates vampyres because he survived an attack as a child (and so was marked). An attack that killed his mother.]]
* InnerMonologue: Light does this often - justified in that, as the MasterActor he is (and incredibly biased), he will say one thing to someone but be thinking something else completely.
* InnerMonologueConversation: Cleo and Light. It doesn't help that she is yet to learn proper thought-etiquette.

* MasterActor: Light. His drama teacher is the only one that catches on to the fact that Light is acting ''ALL THE TIME''.
* MeaningfulName: Light's 'new name' as a fledgling vampyre, Asahi, means 'Morning Sun' in Japanese. The wholly more appropriate Yagami ('Night-God') is discarded.
* MissingMom
* MythologyGag: In this fic Light is very skilled at fencing and [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything swordplay]]. In ''[[AllThereInTheManual How To Read 13]]'' Ohba and Obata state that they were originally going to have Light and L be fencing masters and do a fencing duel before they ultimately [[WhatCouldHaveBeen settled for tennis instead.]]

* ProfessorGuineaPig: Light was originally one of the scientists working on the cure for vampyrism but seeing how he was one of the few members of the population who could be used in the study he agreed to become a test subject.

* ReligionIsMagic
* RightHandCat: Invoked. Cleo wants a schemer to be her bondmate.
* RoaringRampageOfRevenge: [[spoiler: Light's goal.]]
* [[SatireParodyPastiche Satire/Parody/Pastiche]]: Much of what happens to Light is a sort of parody (if a little less affectionate than most) of what happens to Zoey, but with a more [[DarkerAndEdgier serious]] edge. A little bit satire, with the issues that crop up in it.
* ScienceDestroysMagic
* ScienceHero: Light
* [[ScrewYouElves Screw You, Vampyres!]]: Light is happy to be the one to tell the Vampyres where to stick it when he gets sick of their CulturalPosturing.
* ShipTease: Light with Zoey, the twins, Damien, Neferet, and Kayla.
* ShoutOut: Light reads ''{{Carrie}}'' and ''TheRing'', and ''{{Hamlet}}'' in drama class. Also in drama class he and Zoey act out a scene from ''RomeoAndJuliet''.
** Also to ''{{Franchise/Spider-Man}}''. And ''Series/RedDwarf.''
** There is a doctor named [[Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer Dr Summers]] on the anti-vampyre [[FunWithAcronyms A.D.O.N]] team. Also, Dr Primrose, whose name came from a very long Whedon-provided list of former Watchers.
* [[SmallNameBigEgo Small Name, Big Ego]]: From the author, no less, and usually in [[CouchGag Couch Gags]].
-->''"Do what you like, just don't tell the Cast duo (Kristen may be fired and have to deal with the shame of having me replace her)."''
-->''"Ruin Takada, culling the evils of literature since 2011 - or at least giving them the ''joie de vivre''."''

* ShutUpHannibal: Light delivers an ''epic'' one to Neferet.
* SlidingScaleOfVampireFriendliness
* SnarkyNonHumanSideKick: Cleo.
* TheSociopath: {{Lampshaded}} [[spoiler: when one of the students dies in front of Light and he shows no emotion over her death. The other students whine and scream at him and call him a sociopath. Light only agrees and tells them that they're probably right.]]
* TheSoulless: [[spoiler: during the House of Night ritual the Goddess finds Light to be "empty." Light is ''very disturbed'' by this.]]
* StagesOfMonsterGrief
* SwitchingPOV
* TakeThat: The whole fic is this to the House of Night series, in fairness.
* TalkingAnimal: Cleo. [[JustifiedTrope Justified]] in that having a Feline Affinity is pretty common for vampyres in HON-verse (an affinity that would allow for such communication), and subverted in that it's Light's affinity and thus only he seems to understand her wittering. Of course, WordOfGod proclaims this development as simply for the RuleOfFunny.
* TeacherStudentRomance: [[spoiler: To Light's discomfort Neferet tries to jump him when she thinks that he's has been possessed by her lover [[BigBad Kalona]].]]
* TechnoBabble: According to WordOfGod, 'No-Hoper' comes from the medical slang for the drug dopamine.

Light has no clue what's going on but for the sake of self-preservation plays along with it.

* TitleDrop
* TransplantedCharacterFic: Light in the HON-universe.
* UnwantedHarem: Light seems to attract fangirls wherever he goes: Zoey, Neferet, the Twins, Kayla, [[EvenTheGuysWantHim Damien]]...
* UnreliableNarrator: Light is incredibly biased at times, due in part to being prejudiced and highly-strung in general.
* VanHelsingHateCrimes
* WeHaveReserves: at the start of the story the scientists seem resigned to the fact taht most if not all of their test subjects are dead, dying, or going to die.
* WhatTheHellHero: [[spoiler: [[EvenEvilHasStandards Neferet]] calls out the human scientists looking for the vampyre cure for experimenting on and killing children.]]
* WhatMeasureIsANonhuman
* WholePlotReference: The No Hopers aren’t expected to live long, hence the name, so the doctors give them simple black journals to record their thoughts and feelings during the process... called "Death Notes."
