* AcceptableTargets: Justin Bieber and Twilight are the commonly accepted ones, although each author has their own batch of targets to sling TakeThats at.
* Development Hell: A lesser example then other products. It's very rare that any of the main fanfics are updated either frequently or will set update schedules be kept to. As a way to pass time between updates, the main writers put up Spin Offs to pass time between updates (PACK for Soulless Warlock, Red Vs Glee PSAs for Cola Flavoured Sherbet and Gone Rampant, and the works of the Different-Verse for Zero Ben. Frequently lampshaded by the authors when they do update.
* DudeNotFunny: A possible reaction to Daniel's [[SarcasticConfession confession in Throwdown that he's a suicide bomber that]] [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything "Rides my bicycle into buildings with big explosions while yelling stuff in Arabic"]].
* Fan Nickname: The actual title should be the Different-Verse because it was Zero Ben's kindness that allowed for Jack (and other characters) to continue on in different stories by other writers, but this title is what stuck for a few writers. This was actually a second attempt after a failed one by Soulless Warlock and two other writers and it has proven more successful.
* HilariousInHindsight: Gone Rampant initially had Daniel played by Music/AdamLambert. Fast forward to 2013, and Lambert will have a guest roll in the fifth season.
* HarsherInHindsight: In ''Acafellas'' Daniel uses Oscar Pistorious as an example of people who are different still being able to do amazing things. Since Pistorious was convicted of whether or not he killed his girlfriend, this is since a bit more harsh.
** Any jokes made at Finn's expense after Cory Monteith's death in July 2013.
* HoYay: Happens a bit.
** There's Jack goal to kiss everyone in the glee club regardless of gender.

** Cola-Flavoured-Sherbert once said that if "Jack and Jesse swung that way, they would be perfect for each other."
** Daniel finds Finn to be [[{{Adorkable}} adorkable]] and tends to act camp in his thought train.
** Dylan called Mike the "Donald O'Connor" to his "Gene Kelly".
** Brittany called Jenn "hot"
** Dylan's overprotective nature of Kurt
*** [[JustifiedTrope Justified]] when you learn about Dylan's brother.
* MoralEventHorizon: As mentioned, the end of Throwdown.
** And Daniel crossed it again in Wheels.
** Gone Rampant has said that there was an alternate ending to the Ballad chapter, where Daniel mocks Quinn for being kicked out of her home, but got rid of it because he thought that [[EvenEvilHasStandards even Daniel wouldn't go there.]]
** Jack averts it in Wheels by choosing not to make the call to Burt.
* The Other Darrin: Daniel was originally played by AdamLambert, but is now played by JohnGallagherJr. Michele was played by AvrilLavigne, but was then replaced by LindsayPierce...even though Lindsay actually plays Harmony in Glee's 3rd season...She's now played by VanessaHudgens.
* SeasonalRot: Gone Rampant has stated that he believes this to happen to Glee after Season 1, and noted that if/when he gets to it, he'd probably spend most of the time screaming in rage.
** He later retired from the Glee fandom less than halfway through Season 1, but will stay and read other stories in The 'Verse.
