''[[http://wintersinlavelle.com/ Winters in Lavelle]]'' is a modern fantasy webcomic written by [[http://keshii.deviantart.com/ Kasey]]. The story revolves around two young siblings, Kari and Aiden, who discover that the crystal sphere above their fireplace can transport them into a magical world. After much meddling, the family heirloom leaves them stranded in a forest. As they search for a way home, they gain strange powers, meet new people and find out more about themselves and their family. Wiki [[http://lavelle.wikia.com here.]]

When listing an example, please limit entries to things that have appeared in the comic itself.

See the [[Characters/WintersInLavelle character sheet]] for more information about the cast.


* AllThereInTheManual: See BilingualBonus entry below.
* AliensSpeakingEnglish: All the humans Kari and Aiden have met so far speak English. Since Lavelle is a mostly European-influenced world, this is not too surprising. Averted however with the [[{{PettingZooPeople}} gard]], unfortunately for Aiden.
* AmuletOfConcentratedAwesome:
** Kari and Aiden seem to have gotten these in the form of [[{{ClingyMacGuffin}} Amber Gems]]
** The pearls are like this too. Prince Edric has one on a ring.
* AristocratsAreEvil:
** The King and the Princes are not well-liked. Unfortunately for Ashton, he looks an awful lot like one...
** Prince Edric is proving that the Princes live up to their reputation
* [[{{BandageBabe}} Bandage Boy]]:
** Ashton's covered in them. Comes in handy for several of the other characters.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: After Ashton spends most of the story mumbling and stuttering while looking like a whipped puppy, he shows off his skills against a random Gard and then Xan.
** And then [[IncrediblyLamePun royally]] kicks Edric's draconic rear.
* {{Bifauxnen}}: The Tempest/Laksha, as revealed in a voter incentive.
* BigBrotherInstinct: They may fight all the time, but when push comes to shove Aiden can be very protective of his little sister.
* BilingualBonus: The printed books of the first issue contain a cipher for the gard language. [[{{ShownTheirWork}} Any reader who decides to put it to good use will be able to translate all of the dialogue written in gard in the book.]]
* CrapsackWorld: Lavelle is shaping up to be this, with the Princes using the land of Lavelle as the playground for their family feud.
* DoubleAgent: [[spoiler:Silas]] is one, according to Ashton.
* ElementalPowers: Aiden's amber allows him to generate [[{{PlayingWithFire}} fire]], while Kari's Lightning powers give her HealingHands
* FieryRedhead: Subverted. Aiden's got the personality and the elemental powers, but is blonde. Rio is the redhead of the group but is calm and mature.
* FingerlessGloves: Xan wears an interesting pair. Only the thumb, pinky, and ring fingers on each hand are cut off; presumably for when he uses his bow.
* GlasgowGrin: Silas as half of one.
* HalfHumanHybrid: All of the so-called Princes are bastard sons of the Dragon King. Unusually for this trope, they are disfigured and rather freaky looking. There does not appear to be (yet anyway) any health problems beyond this, however.
* HealingHands: Kari's power. Although it will leave you with a nasty scar.
* HeterosexualLifePartners: Rio and Xan are pretty much attached at the hip. Many fangirls doubt the 'heterosexual' part - which was confirmed, in Xan's case, by [[WordOfGod the artist's Twitter.]]
* IcyBlueEyes: Of the icy and piercing variety. A definitive trait of the Princes. And Ashton. [[spoiler:Who is a Prince, though you probably already guessed that.]]
* LaResistance: Wisteria.
* LittleBitBeastly: Some of the gard look more like this, having only deer-like ears and antlers.
* MagicalLand: Lavelle.
* TheMedic: Xan is pretty handy in the first-aid department. Kari's powers also lend her to this role.
* MissingMom: Their mother passed away a year before the story. Their dad seems to have become more of a metaphorical MissingMom because of her death.
* OurDragonsAreDifferent: Dragons in Lavelle can [[{{VoluntaryShapeshifting}} take human form]], though only certain kinds. Interestingly enough, Blue Dragons aren't one of those - which makes it a huge mystery as to how the Blue King managed it.
* PersonalityPowers: Aiden's [[{{AstonishinglyAppropriateAppearance}} hotheaded and implusive]] with [[{{ImprobableHairstyle}} spikey blonde hair]]. [[{{PlayingWithFire}} Guess what his power is?]]
* PettingZooPeople: The gard, a race of Deer-men.
* RefusalOfTheCall: Kari's initial reaction to being transported to a magical world? [++TAKE US BACK!!++]
* SiblingYinYang:
** [[{{RedOniBlueOni}} Kari]] is responsible and cautious while [[{{RedOniBlueOni}} Aiden]] is quick-tempered and impulsive.
** Except Xan has noted that Kari may be more like her brother then anyone seems to think.
* ShrinkingViolet: Ashton literally looks like it causes him physical pain anytime he has to speak to someone. [--Even his text is written smaller--]
* TheRedBaron: The Tempest, apparently the best swordsman (...er, woman) in Lavelle.
* TrappedInAnotherWorld: [[{{TheresNoPlaceLikeHome}} They just want to get back home]]
* WorldTree: At least two of 'em.
* YouDidntAsk: When Kari and Ashton first meet Rio.
-->Kari: You haven't even told us your '''name!'''
-->Rio: You haven't '''asked.''' And you haven't told me yours, either.
