* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: It's clear that SV is an UnreliableNarrator, but how unreliable ''is'' he?
* MoralEventHorizon: [[spoiler:SV murdering TY.]]
** An earlier version of ''10%+'' had very strong coarse language; this was changed to make it more approachable to a wider audience. Now, this in itself isn't bad. However, one of Polarizing's lines changed from "smashed against the ''[[PrecisionFStrike fucking]]'' wall" to... "smashed against the ''far-flung'' wall". Really?
** One page of ''Secretary'' has a facture which looks like it's named ''"pee"''. (It's actually "spee".)
* WhatAnIdiot: Polarizing spends an awful lot of time talking and boasting about the things he can do to Quintet, instead of actually doing most of them. Arguably justified somewhat in that he probably doesn't want to actually kill her, [[spoiler: going so far as to use a facture to open a hole in the previously closed off cavern and urge her to leave.]]
