Creator / Amoridere

Amoridere is a rather shy but otherwise candid writer and artist who had her start on deviantArt (where she is otherwise known as AkaiChounokoe). She mostly does fanfictions, the which can be found on Fanfiction Dot Net and Archive of Our Own. She also does original fictions and poems.


Works by Amoridere (Alphabetically):


Tropes in Amoridere's works:

  • Abusive Parents: She writes a lot of these, an example would be Kaeda, who was like this to Jinx, Spin, and Toki, however, the last of the three got it the worse, as Toki was not only beaten but could have very well died of, not only her injuries, but of the leukemia from the severe neglect.
    • Toki is a played with case, as she was abusive to Jaynine but with other children, she's the opposite.
  • Adoptive Peer Parent: Played With in that the children she cares for are her cousins and little sister but Bunny is in early to mid twenties, though, she hasn't given birth to any children to speak of but she is considerably a bit young for motherhood. It is stated here that she didn't even finish college when Madgie came to live with her and is studying online so she can do so as to better provide for her youngest cousins.
  • Adult Fear: The poem Broken Leg has this in subtle form where an intrusive thought (or a vision) has her breaking a leg and being alone with no one to help.
    • In Lost, Found, The Kiryuuins' daughter, Ryuuko is kidnapped as a toddler and, like many other children, was taken to the "orphanage", where they are put through experiments.
    • In Feel, Satsuki is mentioned to have lost her sight as baby to an accident.
    • Come find me, Again, Ryuuko disappears while playing outside and they don't find out what happened to her until years later. Also, Satsuki's Sanity Slippage.
  • Aerith and Bob: Some of the names Amo uses are typically fictional, uncommon, and or actual names with alternate spellings (i.e Brownie being named after a desert and Britanni being an actual name but the alternate spelling of "Britney").
    • Of her pikachu group, Jinx and Spinner being names that wouldn't pass for normal, while Jackie and Jaynine (spelling aside) can. Sunflower's is an unclear case (people do name their kids after plants).
  • All Abusers Are Male: Averted Trope, as Toki is a female character who likes to dole out hits for whatever reason (mostly because she can) and doesn't tend to discriminate.
  • The Alcoholic: According to a few stories, Spinner is this and its such a problem that he had got into a fight with Toki (the which left the latter injured).
  • The All-Concealing "I": Through Thick and Thin is narrated from the first-person perspective, but we have some cues revealing who is narrating by what the other characters are saying (i.e, Uzu called Ryuuko by her last name of "Matoi" when he asks about her).
  • All Men Are Perverts: Well, not all of them but Jinx is, considering he does like to peek on women (Toki and or Doki isn't an exception) and look at porn, along with one story having him (with Spin) go on a panty raid [1]. This was lessened after he got a girlfriend.
  • All There in the Manual: Amoridere often adds Word of God comments to her tumblr or deviantArt pages, adding information about her stories or characters.
  • All Women Are Prudes: Downplayed. Toki's had a boyfriend but, for some reason or another, hasn't gone "beyond a kiss", keeping the relationship mainly platonic. According to one story, she wasn't sure if she wanted lose her virginity or not and that, besides dates, she's never been in a relationship.
  • Amazing Technicolor Wildlife: As Amo noted a couple of times with pic descriptions, Holly and Beryl are oddly colored foxes. Subverted with others, as they are naturally colored (i.e, Crocsmia is colored more so like fox would be).
  • Ambiguous Disorder: Toki has had a few conditions diagnosed and they are known, however, she has the symptoms of several others undiagnosed, the symptoms being some obsessive compulsive tendencies (as implied in the poem Lipstick), mood swings, fears of being abandoned, impulse control problems, and fits of rage and violence.
    • Satsuki in ''The Mysterious Lady Kiryuuin" is painfully shy, has agoraphobic traits, and has social anxiety. She's been like that ever since she was a child.
  • An Arm and a Leg:
    • Toki, Jinx, and Spin had lost limbs in a landmine accident during the events of Landmines are Not Toys.
    • In A Cut for You, severing a limb occurs as part of Serial Escalation
    • Someone severing a limb occurs in a trio of pictures titled Mutilation.
    • In the artworks "Security Blanket", "Best Friend", and "Garden", severed limbs are present but they don't belong to the little girls who have them.
    • The pic "Replacement" has a girl holding a severed arm, along with having one arm severed.
  • Animal Motifs:
    • Rei, in Kiryuuin Chronicles, has a bird motif.
    • In "Hyena", she compares someone she knows (but clearly isn't fond of) to the titular animal.
    • In A Good Day, this is used to show how different Ryuuko thinks she and her sister, Satsuki, are. The latter, appearance wise, as she put it, can be a compared to be crane, an animal that is associated with beauty and grace, while the former compares herself to a bulldog, which, apparently, corresponds with her appearance of being "short, stumpy, frumpy, fat, and rolly".
    • It's subtle but several of her poems alludes to rats, which, besides being an allusion to the Eastern Zodiac, are known to survive hard times, however, they are small, weak, looked down, hated, and easily preyed upon.
  • Artistic License – Biology: Toki should have died shortly after being borderline submersed in that "vat of radioactive crap" (as Amo put it) due to the radiation destroying her insides, along with chemotherapy being used to treat her leukemia (when it was terminal). Likewise, she should also be be infertile due to the aforementioned. However, Toki is neither, 1), dead and, 2),infertile.
  • Art Evolution: Her art style changes from time to time.
  • Author Appeal:
    • Amoridere likes to incorporate winters and flowers in her stories.
    • She also paints a good amount of pictures of cats.
    • First-Person Perspective seems to be her favorite style of writing.
  • Berserk Button: According to a few stories, don't interrupt Doki's naps, play pranks on her, or peek on her. In short, don't do anything that might be "nonsense".
    • Toki has far too many to actually list, along with them changing so often.
    • For Bunny, it's anything Madgie related.
  • The Baby of the Bunch: Sunflower, apparently, is the youngest out of all of her pikachu, as Jinx is the oldest. How this works is anyone's guess.
  • Barrier Maiden: Toki considers herself to be the guardian of the "border between this world and the next".
    • Broken Gate's Nezumi is the guardian of the titular gate and, towards the end, she is sacrificing her strength to delay it reopening.
  • Bedlam House: Her poem Cure is implied to take place in an asylum befitting this trope.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: Doki is one of the nicest people one could meet, until someone gets her angry.
  • Beehive Hairdo: Some of the Toki pics presents the beehive hairdo.
  • Beige Prose: Her first Touhou fic, Goodbye Chen, lacked poetic details.
  • Big Sister Instinct:
    • In A Good Day, Satsuki finds out her sister was being bullied for her appearance, she makes note to take a list of said bullies and setting out to deliver punishment.
    • Toki, in several stories, can be quite protective of her sister, Doki (Toki's the older twin).
  • Blind Without 'Em: Doki is legally blind and wears high-prescription glasses to compensate. She also carries a white cane, at least according to one story, when she is sans her glasses.
  • Blood from the Mouth:
    • Played for silliness in the poem Blood Running from the Mouth, where said character is angry and not injured.
    • Used as a metaphor in Visceral Needs, as the rat most likely feels like she's bleeding.
    • In Beishang, bleeding from the mouth means whatever illness she had has gotten worse, leading to titular's Death by Despair.
    • Her angry (or upset) art usually has blood dripping from the character's mouths.
  • Bloody Murder: Toki's blood is apparently toxic, because when it enters the bloodstream of anyone other than her sister (or baby), it will turn you into crystal. (Link) Oddly, it also affects flowers, as demonstrated in one Madgie story.
  • Blue and Orange Morality: Toki does what she wants to, when she feels like doing it, consequences be damned.
  • Bob Haircut: Doki, in a more recent pic [2], however the description dubs it a "baby cut".
  • Body to Jewel: Toki's blood can transform what it touches to crystal, which can be read in Shattered Glass [3] or Madgie, what did you do? X: Bloody Snow Angel [4]. Bunny theorized this is probably because Toki's blood has extreme amounts of cysteine. note 
  • Both Sides Have a Point: Played with in Just Doki, as pregnancy hormones have made the titular a little irritable, however, Jinx, Sunflower, and Spinner see her as being bitchy and thinks that she is acting out of proportion. However, it is pointed out that Doki does have reasons to complain, as Jinx peeks on her, Spin is a drunk who does whatever the former tells him to, Sunflower is a brat, and Beryl has played pranks, the which could her get her hurt.
  • Bowdlerise: She changed up some of her stories in the Gensokyo 20XX series when she posted them on Archive of Our Own and posted said bolderdised versions FF.net when she got the chance.
  • Breakout Character: Sunnie the pikachu, The Baby of the Bunch of her pikachu group, has her own blog [6].
  • Break the Cutie: Amo seems to favor this trope, as this trope is typically present.
  • Burlesque: Bunny in a couple of pics [7] is dressed in much the way a burlesque performer might be.
  • Butterfly of Death and Rebirth: Several stories and poems.
  • The Caretaker: Doki is something of a variant in the sense that she's the conservator for her mentally ill twin sister, Toki.
  • Childhood Brain Damage: In her fic, Train Tracks, Satsuki "Minjonet" Kiryuuin (generally known as "Min") has epilepsy; her parents had a fight and she took a beer bottle to head.
    • Why Doki has cerebral palsy. At birth, she was deprived of oxygen, leading to said brain damage. The same would apply to Vielle, who also has cerebral palsy (her sister, Angeline, from what's implied, doesn't)
  • Children Are Innocent:
    • In the story, Landmines are Not Toys!, as Toki didn't know landmines could be dangerous, in which case, her innocence may border on Too Dumb to Live.
    • Played with in Lost, Found with Ryuuko and Nui, who have very little understanding as to why they were being experimented on and can only speculate, along with knowing the consequences. While they do have some understanding of how wrong their treatment was, they could do very little to affect it. In a later chapter, Nui, when telling of her (and Ryuuko's) experiences at the "orphanage", she describes a vivisection before asking what it was, however, she seems to have a clue as to what "euthanasia" was, as she mentioned, “I got to stay because they were low on kids.”
  • Cloud Cuckoolander: If her main tumblr blog and her deviantArt is a clue
  • Color-Coded for Your Convenience: Broken Gate on taskey.me has the dialogue of the characters highlighted in different colors. In other cases, typically to tell them apart, Toki is purple and Doki is in pink (in conjunction with wearing glasses).
  • Color Motifs: In the pic titled "Commentary", the lady is wearing a bright red nightgown, the color red drawing attention.
    • Toki is generally seen wearing purple, black, or both. The latter being color representing secrecy and sorrow (alluding to her tragic past and some of her actions) and the former color being associated with materialism (she's wealthy) or, in some scenarios, madness (she's also mentally ill).
    • Besides the Pink Means Feminine trope, Doki is generally seen in pink to probably accentuate her sweetness.
  • Conjoined Twins: Yoki and their bodies are not completely separated but neither are they completely fused. These twins have two arms (one for each), four breasts, four legs, along with two heads. They are treated as though they are one entity (the fact that they share a name), even though, technically, they aren't.
  • Could Have Avoided This Plot: As noted in Broken Gate, Nezumi would have lifted her curse, had Ryuuji, her older brother, accepted his chance for forgiveness or had not have opted to abuse her in the first place (a reason as to why she put a curse on him).
  • Cute Little Fangs:
    • Brownie is usually drawn with tiny fangs in her mouth (or peering out of it).
    • In her most recent bit of work, Ori also has rather small fangs.
  • Cute Monster Girl: Ori, who Amoridere notes, "came out more cute than creepy".
    • If anyone remembers what scylla are and what they tend to do from Greek Mythology, "Cephie" is rather adorable and tame by comparison. [8]
  • Creator Provincialism: As said below, usually, when she writes, her works take place in America, unless stated otherwise.
    Amoridere: I've never gone to another country, so, besides research, I know little about another country or their customs, thus its easier to set a story in America, unless, relevant to the story's plot, in which case the story might take place elsewhere."
  • Creepy Child: Her artwork and poems tend to have creepy children in them. Apparently, kids can be weird.
  • Dark and Troubled Past:
    • Toki was abused and then neglected causing her to almost die of leukemia, during the events of Flashbacks I. When she returned to that place to get hold of the inheritance money during the events of Insanity and Resentment, she went insane and has had issues ever since.
    • Bunny and Madgie's parents died in an accident when Bunny was twenty and Madgie was nine.
    • Doki was separated from her twin sister Toki when both were almost thirteen (at the time, they were cryogenically frozen).
  • Dead All Along:
    • In Paper Cranes, Ryuuko was writing to a passed on Satsuki.
    • It's implied that the subjects of Watching and The Corridor are dead. However, the former is a bit more obvious, as she isn't dressed for mourning, she's not getting wet from the rain, and no one notices her standing there.
  • Death by Despair: Satsuki's death in Sunshine. Said story is tagged as such on AO3.
  • Deliberately Monochrome: Some of Amoridere's artwork is either a limited pallet or a splash of color.
  • Department of Child Disservices: While social services may as well had been nonexistent for Toki, they were not for Jaynine and Sunflower, as they let her become their foster guardian, nevermind the fact that she has mental illness, a criminal record, and a long history of violence (said things would normally keep one from being guardian).
    • One story plays with this, as Nine had been though so many foster homes that placing her with Toki came as something of a last resort.
    • In a story that came before the aforementioned, they play this trope straight as Beryl's prior foster family ran a methlab.
    • According to several stories with Toki in them, there tends to be orphaned children roaming the streets and Toki does take them in (and has, on a few occasions, enrolled them into school), social services not intervening then, in which case, this might be a case of Social Services Does Not Exist.
  • Disabled Means Helpless: People generally have this opinion about a blind Satsuki in Feel, however, she is anything but (aside from needing some help crossing the streets at times), as she's demonstrated. Along that line, like the Marlee Matlin on the trope page, people also assumed she was deaf because she doesn't speak (we do hear her thoughts and ruminations on some matters being expressed internally). As to be expected, she has expressed annoyance at this concept.
    • A particular case in point about this occurs in chapter four, as Ragyou notes that Satsuki is prone to wandering off, leaving her to be criticized and being called irresponsible by other parents when the latter does, as they believe she is helpless and shouldn't be left without supervision. Like her daughter, Ragyou has expressed annoyance particularly at this trope and, not just this trope, the hypocrisy of the other parents related to this.
    • In her original works with Doki (and, a lesser extent, Toki) this is averted as, while she has cerebral palsy, she's not wheelchair-bound and neither is she helpless, considering that she works as a nurse and did beat up Bunny, who, initially, assumed she couldn't fight.
  • The Disease That Shall Not Be Named: Amo generally averts this, as said conditions in the trope tend to be talked about.
  • Disproportionate Retribution: Toki had abused Frailine, but her response was to raise an army of the dead to kill her.
    • According to one story, Bunny had bitten a then two year old Madgie in response to be being punched between the eyes, said bite being bad enough as to where Madgie needed stitches to close it, along with that it destroyed hair follicles in that spot.
    • As discussed and noted in "Batteries", Ryuuko ran away from home and didn't contact Satsuki for about two and a half years since then over an incident with Satsuki hiding the batteries.
  • A Dog Named "Dog":
    • In Broken Gate, we have the following Japanese names for characters; Nezumi (rat or mouse) a rat youkai, Ryuuji (two dragons) a dragon, and Tora (tiger) being a tiger.
    • Bunny's actual name is "Ethelinda Berniece", leaving "Bunny" a nickname.
    • Being a scylla, "Cephie" refers her to cephalopod traits.
    • Being a zodiac Beanie Baby, the rat is called "Shǔ" being the Chinese word for "rat".
  • Don't Fear the Reaper: During works like Sometimes, I Wait for Someone and "Holding Death's Hand". In the former, Death is talked about as though it was personified and, in the latter, Death (personified as female) interacts with a dying character.
  • Downer Ending: Broken Gate ends shortly after resealing the gate, when Nezumi dies, feeling her emotions for the first time in over 200-years, and her death is the last time her siblings, Tora and Miyako, see her again.
  • The Dragon: Brownie does almost whatever Toki tells her without question, while Toki often fills an antagonist role. One could basically define the two as master and dog, as Brownie is an anthropomorphic dog and acts as dogs do.
  • Dream Weaver: Her poem series Lucid Dreams is a bit of a darker take on this and a Your Mind Makes It Real, as the titular lucid dreamer kills anyone she brings into her dreams (its not mentioned why she does, however) and is also capable of reincarnating.
  • Dressed to Heal: Doki's uniform, in a series of pics, was a traditional nurses outfit, up until the most recent one, in which case, her uniform are scrubs and scrub cap. Apparently, she traded in her original uniform for those because its "more practical".
  • Drives Like Crazy:
    • According to Brownie's Profile, she is known for driving while under the influence of caffeine, which is the equivalent of either driving drunk and/or under the influence of PCP, thus, she usually gets her licence taken away. Apparently, she also has a habit of running her friend Toki over and tends to drive on the curve, as well as crash into buildings. Amoridere states that, somehow, she drives on top of buildings and was once observed driving on electrical and telephone wires.
    • In that vein, according to Amoridere and, at least, one story, Toki is just as bad, doing U-turns, doughnuts, and driving in reverse, all mostly occurring on a freeway and/or in heavy traffic, along with driving on top of other cars, doubly so when she wants to go somewhere fast. She also drives while doing something else, like changing diapers, for example. Unlike the aforementioned Brownie, she doesn't seem to get any sort of punishment for that.
  • Driven to Suicide: A mentally ill Toki (outside of the Madgie series), Rei in Cellar Secrets and Frozen, and many others.
  • Dying as Yourself: An elderly Shiro, in As the Wind Blows, dying shortly after he starts to remember.
  • Dysfunction Junction: Her casts of characters always include a few psychological issues.
  • Eastern Zodiac:
    • Her story Broken Gate has several youkai that reference the Zodiac; rat, tiger, dragon, and horse.
    • Her poem Visceral Needs and Beishang alluded to this, particularly the former with the zodiac standing in for her and her relatives (it seems).
  • Ecchi: Amoridere defines some of her artwork to be NSFW (however mildly).
  • Empathy Doll Shot: One untitled pic, which has a bloodied rabbit doll. Amoridere states that she hasn't a clue as to what prompted her draw that, however.
  • Emotionless Girl:
    • Nezumi really seemed to have mastered suppressing her emotions, and when she does start to feel again, her reaction is to "destroy" that feeling. Her reasoning is that if she cannot express her emotions, then there isn't a purpose in feeling them. She does finally feel emotions, at the end of Broken Gate. She cries again, just before she dies.
    • Being emotionless is also the subject of at least one poem, titled, I Can't Feel Anymore.
  • Enfant Terrible: As Amo put it, "Kids can be monsters, really destructive little monsters."
  • Environmental Symbolism: The titular rain and the weather in general seem to reflect Satsuki's overall mood and depression in the aftermath of her sister's death in the fanfic Raindrops. Naturally, the raindrops are also compared to falling tears at the end, at the same time, she notes how it never seems to be sunny. In the sequel, Sunshine, the sunny weather serves a juxtaposition between weather that seems cheerful and somber days, as Satsuki announces she is terminally ill and later on dies both on sunny days.
  • Epic Fail: Let this be known, Madgie cannot make Kool-Aid [9]. To elaborate on the ingredients that she used, they were diesel, kerosene, butane, propane, Red Bull, and turpentine and, as to probably be expected, Bunny was hospitalized and being paralyzed down her left side for a week. The kicker? Madgie made said Kool-Aid as a way of being nice.
  • Epistolary Novel:
    • Kaguya's diary of the Gensokyo Diaries tie-in and her fic Paper Cranes, both doubling as diaries
    • Some parts of As the Wind Blows are from Shiro's end, as he's writing letters to a passed-on Satsuki.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: While she's not exactly evil, nevertheless playing antagonistic roles in a few of her appearances, Amo states Toki, despite running the Yakuza, The Mafia, The Mafiya, and numerous other organizations, being mentally ill, running Blue And Orange Morality, along with being a Troubled Abuser, and Manipulative Bitch has some standards, as she seems to prefer intimidation over killing, doesn't allow the Yakuza to recruit prostitutes (breaking that rule is a colossal no-no apparently), and, despite being a Rich Bitch, she really cannot stand Giselle (then again no one can).
  • Explosive Breeder: Erins(pronounced EE-rihns), Toki's species can be this, as females can reproduce at will and the species has two ways of reproduction (for females anyway).
  • Extra Eyes: Ori and Yon, with one having six and the other four. This is justified as the former is a spider, which do have more than two eyes (usually they have eight), while the latter is a youkai, said extra pair cluing one in to her inhuman nature.
  • Family of Choice: Apparently, according to a few stories, Toki regards her friends as this.
  • Family Theme Naming: With her real name "Ethelinda", Bunny's parents are named Errikson and Esmeynelda.
  • Fat Girl:
    • Madgie, after becoming a glutton, and is actually so fat, that she shattered a bed, broken a chair, along with crumpling one made of steel, and had to wear maternity clothes. Eventually, according to the description for "Madgie in Red Shoes" (or is it "Red Shoes"?), Toki's had to tailor her a new dress (one without a pattern).
    • Bunny seemed to have put on some weight, however, she is more of a Big Beautiful Woman than a fat girl, as said weight gain has rounded her out rather nicely.
  • Fat and Skinny: A Good Day downplays this, as Ryuuko is chubby but, in by no means, fat, while Satsuki is slimmer.
  • The Fatalist: Several of her characters, along with fatalism being a present theme.
  • Feral Child: Ryuuko in Lost, Found, albeit somewhat, regardless, she is described as one, considering that she was averse to being held (tolerating a hug when wrapped in a blanket), the fact that she doesn't talk and mostly grunted or squealed (earlier, she was mentioned as to be speaking, but Amo changed it), and that she killed a mountain lion with her teeth.
  • Floral Motifs:
    • Toki is generally associated with roses, referencing a tragic rose, said flowers being typically associated with beauty and tragedy or, otherwise, it alludes to her being beautiful, yet harmful (most species of rose have thorns).
    • Broken Gate's Nezumi is associated with lycoris flowers, which lends more to her rather bleak situation considering that she dies in the end, the foreshadowing of said situation by the mentions that she had them growing around her home, her minion bringing her siblings a lycoris flower and their resulting grief, and, not too long before her demise, she gathers up a large group of them and replants them around the titular gate.
  • Floral Theme Naming: Brownie's triplet younger sisters being named after perennial flowers (Patrinia, Delphinum, and Meadow Rue).
    • Sunflower, obviously, equally fitting is that her blog is mostly cheerful.
  • Foreshadowing: Nui's dream predictions in Lost, Found.
  • Forgiveness: Somewhat a theme in Broken Gate, considering that Nezumi did offer it to her brother Ryuuji despite having been abused.
  • The Four Loves:
    • Agape /Storge: As shown in multiple stories, Doki still loves and cares for her sister, Toki, regardless if mentally ill and or involved in illegal doings.
    • Eros: Toki's romantic but platonic love to her ex-boyfriend.
    • Philia: Toki and her friends.
  • Friends Are Chosen, Family Aren't: Toki and Doki would be something of a downplayed case, considering that they don't mind each other too much, however, there are some things that Doki doesn't like but, nevertheless, she accepts little she can do about it. Likewise, the same would occur for Madgie and Bunny, however, in their case, they can't stand each other.
  • Friend to All Children: Toki is a played with case. Frailine was one she cared not for, while she's shown to be pretty loving and caring to orphans, the which she takes in. Her sister, Doki, is a more straighter example.
  • Furries Are Easier to Draw: She mostly does anthro artwork.
  • Furry Reminder: In a couple of stories, it was mentioned that Madgie was practicing her hopping, something that is apparently expected of rabbits. There is also the fact that Bunny eats carrots (as treat food) Note or about how big a family the Rabbitwrights are.
  • Girls Love Stuffed Animals: Amoridere does and stuffed animals are usually shown as her photo subjects.
  • Girlish Pigtails: A good chunk of when she draws girls, they tend to have these.
  • Gray and Grey Morality: How she might write her stories, where the characters' actions are not entirely justified but not entirely condemned, sometimes instances of Both Sides Have a Point.
  • Gratuitous Foreign Language: Sometimes in her writing, particularly with her fanfics
  • Ghostly Goals: In The Girl in the Pink Dress, the titular girl, named Nui Harime. Her goals seem to be more or less type A, as she just simply wants to go outside, which is to say be free from her room, where she had passed away of illness, and neither is she inherently malicious, nor was she trying to be. When her goal is met, she thanks the family she's haunted before reincarnating.
  • Good Girls Avoid Abortion: Played with. In a couple of earlier works, Options and Considering and Toki's Baby , it's discussed and one of the characters talks about it negatively, whereas the others did bring up that, with principles against the procedure, one doesn't have too many options, making the opinion, in those senses neutral.
  • Goofy Print Underwear: Brownie's red panties with hearts in a pic titled "Tramp Stamp"
  • Hair Decorations: She uses these with her characters, usually in the form of bows or hairclips
  • Happily Adopted: Doki by her foster parents, to which she does recount rather happy memories of them.
  • Hard-Drinking Party Girl: Bunny likes her alcohol, however, besides the occasional drinking, she isn't mentioned to have partied.
    • Toki, according to Amo, liked to party, however, the booze consumption is replaced with energy drinks
  • Hikikomori: Satsuki in The Mysterious Lady Kiryuuin is painfully shy. Chapter five indicates she is afraid of going outside and the story implies some kind of disorder. Regardless, if she doesn't leave her house, she seems to be a capable guardian and functional person overall.
  • Hollywood Genetics: Amoridere tends to avert this, however, there is a case of this is unclear with Brownie and Britani's younger sisters, Patrinia, Delphinia, and Meadow Rue and the twins themselves, as they are mentioned to be twins/triplets, yet, they have differences with eye and hair color, something that generally doesn't occur with multiples unless from different embryos. Then again, if one thinks "multiples" in an anthro world means "litter", this might make more sense (littermates tend to have some differences between them).
  • Hospital Hottie: Doki, apparently, according to Amo, some of her patients injure themselves just so they could see her, which is something that she isn't too cognizant of (she's confused as to why).
  • Humanoid Female Animal: When she draws her anthros, they tend to look more like humans than Petting Zoo People.
    • Averted in the pic "Computer Rat", where said rat is drawn as a rat would look like, aside from having glasses, eye circles, and a flower behind an ear.
  • Humanoid Abomination: The titular lucid dreamer in the "Lucid Dreams" poem series who entraps people in her dreams
  • Idle Rich: Toki, as would be implied by at least a few stories, considering that we don't have many mentions of her having a job, despite her being so wealthy. Averted in Doki's case, as she's mentioned to be working as a nurse.
  • Ill Girl: Toki, due to having a "wiped immune system" gets sick and often critically.
    • Ryuuko in Odds and Probabilities and Through Thick and Thin. Also Satsuki in Piano Notes.
    • According to one story, Patrinia, apparently, has "Brittle Bone Disease".
  • I'm a Humanitarian: Cannibalism was a subject of two poems; I'm Hungry and Sleeping Forever.
  • Implausible Hair Color: If not for the fact that they're not human, Toki and Doki's red hair. As noted on the trope page, redheads in Japan do exist, it's just rare to find them. Likewise, when one does find a red-head in Japan, it's most likely going be closer to auburn than the shade that Toki and twin sister has.
  • Improbable Hairstyle: Toki's is something of an odd case. Her elaborate hairstyles can be rather probable in the sense her extremely long hair can make it so, however, one would have to wonder as to how she can maintain them or, for that matter, take her street-length hair and compress it to a bun or few.
    • Her twin sister, Doki, is an averted case, as she has shorter hair and it wouldn't require much maintenance.
  • Infant Immortality: She plays with this.
  • Irrational Hatred: Toki's hatred of Frailine (then called "Jaynine"), as, while she was a brat, the latter was only a baby when Toki was suffering abuse and neglect. Similarly, we get Madgie and Bunny's hatred and their feelings towards one another are mutual (in later stories).
  • It's Not Porn, It's Art: Amo did comment somewhat on this in the description of one pic, "Nudity doesn’t have to be sexual."
  • It's Pronounced Tro-PAY: Barcelona's mother's name, Neesha, is pronounced "Nih-shah" and her sister's name is pronounced "Best-een".
    • In one story, we get a character by the name of "Nine" which is pronounced "Neen".
  • Jade-Colored Glasses: Her characters usually see the world like this, though it usually doesn't come without reason.
  • Japanese Christian: Doki, as per this image where she can be mistaken as a nun (but isn't, that's just what she's wearing.) and it been noted that she does pray to God there is a crisis as in this story. Likewise, she's heard reciting Bible verses in the 56th and 57th Madgie, what did you do? stories, double the case in the former, as she's performing what she thinks are funeral rites, Psalm 21 being a common verse being said at funerals.
  • Jerkass: Her characters can be assholes, suffice enough way of putting it.
  • Jerkass Has a Point: Nonon in "Batteries". While she is openly hostile towards Ryuuko and slut-shames her, she is right when she brings up how much Ryuuko's running away and subsequent absence hurt Satsuki, along with suggesting that Ryuuko was in no position to care for another baby, as the one she already had wasn't in her care.
  • Karmic Death: Ryuuji's in Broken Gate. With him being something of a Jerkass and being Too Dumb to Live, he had that a long time coming.
  • Karma Houdini: Some stories tend to have Toki getting away with a lot of things that would normally put someone in jail.
  • Laser-Guided Karma: Giselle when Toki sues and leaves her homeless. Fitting, considering how unlikable she is.
  • The Lad-ette: Bunny has some shades of this and is a more downplayed example. It is mentioned on her profile that she enjoys beer and guns and the first story she appears in has her swearing, generally being unladylike, mostly justified in that she is in her twenties. She phases out of it later on, though, but she still likes beer and guns.
  • Lethal Chef: Madgie cannot make Kool-Aid [10]. She included some rather unconventional ingredients, including diesel, kerosene, butane, propane, Red Bull, and turpentine. As you may expect, Bunny was hospitalized and was paralyzed down her left side for a week.
    Bunny: Accident my ass! When I was her age, at the time, I knew what to put in some damn Kool-Aid and what she used was NOT what you put in Kool-Aid.
  • Lie Back and Think of England: The titular courtesan of the poem Bored Courtesan is a subverted version of this, considering that she isn't thinking of anything besides doing the deed (she's interested and is wanting to do it) and neither is she fulfilling her "duties" while she thinks.
  • Little Bit Beastly: Aside from her ears, Nezumi could pass for her human.
  • Little Black Dress: Toki almost exclusively wears black dresses, however, they don't necessarily fit the "little" mold, considering that they're typically floor length.
  • Little Miss Badass /Pint-Sized Powerhouse: Chapter 5 of Lost, Found, has Ryuuko being one considering that she took down a mountain lion with teeth despite being severely injured. Chapter 17 is a bit more egregious as she goes up against a bear and wins, to the astonishment of Mako and her family.
  • Long-Lived: Toki's species can live for an awfully long time
  • Mad Oracle: Toki is something a of a downplayed case, considering that she takes medication to keep her coherent, regardless, she does have clairvoyant abilities.
  • May December Friendship: Toki and Doki, while they don't look it, are older than their friends.
    • Mayfly-December Friendship: The twins will most certainly outlive any friends or adopted children, as erins tend to live for at least two or three millenia, as is pointed out in one Madgie, what did you do? story. However, they will enjoy generations of descendants.
  • Meaningful Name: Beishang is a Chinese word, according to some translations, means "sorrow" and she is not a happy person.
    • Doki's name in, in some translations, means "ire", while, in a few others, it means "earthenware" (pottery). Besides being an example of Beware the Nice Ones, as a child, according to one story, she used to eat clay.
  • Medical Horror: Two of her stories, Shattered Glass and Blood Rabies, both of which is narrated by Doki (who's a nurse).
  • Meganekko: Doki, granted on the fact it has been established that she is nearsighted and needs them to see so almost all of her pictures have her wearing them. Also, according to some, it adds to her cuteness. As is her daughter, Vielle, and, Bunny's cousin, Seraphina, both are just as Moe as Doki is.
  • The Mermaid Problem: In this pic, she addressed by having the mermaid lay eggs (much like a fish does). Likewise, the same would occur for a naga [11] Note .
  • Mind Screw: The fanfic Second Story Window.
  • The Mirror Shows Your True Self: In chapter eight of Broken Gate, this is inverted, as the mirror doesn't really show Nezumi's true self, actually, as Nezumi's reflection is the opposite of what she is, right down to being more emotive. The reason for this because said reflection is a manifestation of her madness, the which she talks to.
  • Modesty Shorts: According to one picture [12], Doki wears something like these under her clothes (they're pantishorts).
  • Moral Dilemma: Jinx in Resentment and Insanity when he contemplates whether or not it would have been better for him to let Toki's suicide attempt succeed. He saves her, anyway.
  • My God, What Have I Done?: Toki, in thinking of her treatment towards Frailine, especially since the latter is currently staying in a residential facility, leaving the former no room to really atone.
  • Nice Girl: More often than not, in her stories, we have Doki, who can be the sweetest person one could meet, unless, you get her angry that is. Likewise, she's pretty forgiving towards anyone who does her harm.
  • Nightmare Fetishist: Apparently, if some of her artwork, stories, and poems are a clue, Amoridere doesn't mind creepy things.
  • Nightmare Fuel Coloring Book: Some of her artwork teeters on this, particularly if she draws/paints out of upset or is going through a "phase". However, she might call this trope downplayed.
  • Nipple and Dimed:
    • Averted in a piece of art she did, titled "Commentary", where the woman pictured has a bare breast lopped out of her dress and said breast has an uncensored nipple. According to the description, the reason as to why this trope is averted is because its her commentary towards the subject of censoring female body parts (more specifically breasts and nipples), regardless, however, because of dA's rules, it has a mature filter on it (it can be seen on her art and photo tumblr, though).
    • Usually, a nude Toki's "naughty parts" are censored with her long hair or something, but one image entitled "Bra" exposed Toki's nipple, because she's missing the bra. Likewise, also averted in the pic titled "A Rose by Any Other Name" where both of her breasts are exposed.
    • Ori is rather ambiguous, her arms are crossed over her breasts, so she'd either be hiding her nipples (if she is topless) or hiding some sort of top (if she isn't).
    • Averted in the pic with the scylla, as one of her breasts are exposed.
  • Noodle Incident:
    • According to Brownie's profile, one of the reasons to why she hates Madgie is surmised as "between her, Madgie, Toki, and the stairs".
    • The pic titled "Told you not to do that" [13] has a rather dark one, the which aftermath isn't pretty to look at. What lead to said aftermath isn't clear, although if you look closely, the girl has stitches in her neck.
    • How Toki let Giselle move into her home. According to a few stories, she cannot remember why she let Giselle live there, just that she wished she didn't let her live there.
    • Batteries is odd because the incident referring to the titular batteries isn't referred to in specifics in the story, however, we do know Satsuki and Ryuuko had a fight over them. According to the summary, what led to said fight was Satsuki hiding the batteries.
    • In Feel, the accident that a then baby Satsuki lost her sight to isn't referred to in specifics besides that it was raining and that she and her mother couldn't get out of the way.
  • No One Should Survive That: Toki, for a number of accounts, however, the most noticeable, as mentioned above, has survived being submerged in "radioactive crap" , thus, as a result, she should have died of radiation sickness roughly hours, if not two days later, and, when she recovered from leukemia, the which was at its terminal stages. Likewise,there's also the fact that she lost practically her entire right leg to a landmine.
  • No Periods, Period: Implied to be averted with the Bitchiness Poem.
  • Nothing Is Scarier: In the fic, Lost,Found, we have this in chapters 9 and 10, laced with Fridge Horror, as some time ago, there was the first test subject and, according to Nui, as a result of whatever experiments there were, the girl, "Child 00-000-000-0001", was left as something "not human", saying "animal" could be the closest thing they could call her, which begs the question as to what the experimentation did to her and what it could have done to Ryuuko and Nui. What doesn't help that is that a good many of the children experimented on had died.
  • Not What It Looks Like: In chapter 11 of this story [14], in a dispute over payment when it came to buying liquor, Neesha had her husband, Soem, threaten Toki into giving it to them for free, which led to him grabbing her and her pulling away, tearing her dress in the process. Of course, when she calls the police and they come, they seem him standing over her, while her dress is torn, and, well, it doesn't take any guesses as to what happens next.
    Spin: "Did he try to take advantage of you?"
    Toki: "No, but the police saw otherwise."
  • Ohio: Where she lives, according to her photos and what she says. Apparently, she lives somewhere near Cincinnati.
  • O.O.C. Is Serious Business: Generally used to mark a change or a highlight a situation in the story.
    • In Through Thick and Thin, chapter 4, when Ryuuko ties a red a ribbon instead of the usual blue one, Satsuki immediately thinks that the former's illness (subtly implied to be cancer) has begun to hit terminal.
    • In the sequel, Piano Notes, what gets Ryuuko to visit a critically ill Satsuki in the hospital is that she heard the latter's voice call her "Ryuuko", instead of "Imouto", like she normally would. Earlier in the fic, Ryuuko comes home to find her not at the piano for their lessons but, instead, resting in bed, having grown tired and weaker from her illness
    • In "Odds and Probabilities" (the prequel to Through Thick and Thin), Mako mentions that Ryuuko normally wouldn't admit she was scared and would say "Hell no!" or "No way!" and laugh it off, so when the latter doesn't do that, it tells her how sick Ryuuko is.
    • In non-fanfiction related works, Doki is generally the "nice one", however, when she's irritable and grouchy, odds are, she's either pregnant and or sleep deprived.
  • Odd Name Out: Meadow Rue's name to Delphinia and Patrinia's rhyming names.
  • Older Than They Look: If Doki's Chronicles is reliable, then Toki and Doki are really somewhere in their eighties or nineties, as back in the time when these two were born cerebral palsy and selective-mutism were not explainable and were beyond their birth-parents comprehension, except for by a horrible disease (Doki's case) and being a "good child", as seen and not heard (Toki's case). To further point this out, they should not be able to have babies but did. However, they were cryogenically frozen when they were 12 and a half years old, drastically slowing down their aging process and only recently released.
  • Only Known by Their Nickname: Many of her characters, here's a few:
    • Bunny's real name, according to a few stories, is Ethelinda Berniece.
    • Jinx and Spin, Amoridere states their real names are "Jinxers"and "Spinner" .
    • Toki-Doki Rose is mostly called "Rose", even by her mother. However, that could be because the "Toki-Doki" part isn't really part of her name any more than it probably is a title or an "optional extension", which is something that, apparently, doesn't have to be apart of her name.
    • Sunflower is generally called "Sunnie".
  • Only Sane Man: In many stories, Doki usually plays this role when antics get out of hand.
  • Overly Long Name: According to Amoridere, she finds names like these fun to write, as could be seen with Holly, Crocosmia, and Giselle.
  • Parental Abandonment: Amo's stories usually have dead or otherwise absent parents.
  • Pink Means Feminine: Doki, generally, is seen in pink.
  • Poem Fic: Some of her fanfics are written as poems, an example of which would be She Still Cried, which is a poem about then infants Satsuki and Ryuuko.
  • Polar Opposite Twins:
    • Doki is much different than her twin sister Toki. Both dress somewhat alike but wear different colors: black or purple for Toki, reflecting her enigmatic, yet domineering but secretly kindhearted personality, and pink and white for Doki, reflecting her kind, gentle, and angelic personality. It isn't just that, according to Amoridere, Doki is more morally grounded than Toki is (as in, she wouldn't stoop to schemes or anything illegal to meet her demands, whereas the latter probably and more often than not would), along with being more levelheaded, and, Toki, well, she is described as being one who does what she wants, whenever she so wants to do it, consequences be damned. It was also noted that, when the two were children, Doki was always the shy one, while Toki was more assertive.
    • Brownie is very much different than her sister, Brittani, in that Brittani is described as being prim and proper, while Brownie is described as tomboyish. Apparently, them looking different than one another is supposed to reflect that (to go further, Brownie is a blonde with blue eyes, while Brittani is brunette with magenta/pink eyes).
  • Promotion to Parent:
    • Bunny has been a parent to her siblings and cousins Sweetheart, Speckles, Eglantine, and, of course, Madgie. She was initially unwilling to take on these responsibilities but, with her younger cousins, she seems not to mind as much.
    • According to Doki's Chronicles, Toki, the older twin, took something of a caregiving role to Doki when their parents died.
    • According to a description of a photograph with Sunflower and Mako (the latter is a rowlet) and several photos prior, Jackie seems to have promoted to parent (weirdly, she's one the younger of the pikachu, Jinx is the oldest).
    • Satsuki in "Batteries" was this to Ryuuko up until she ran away and, later on, Ryuuko's baby, Hoshi.
  • Purple Prose: While Amoridere doesn't often use flowery language (or use much of it), she is descriptive, especially when said story is told through a 1st-person narration (usually with how someone looks).
  • The Quiet One: Satsuki in the fic titled Feel and she's only spoken once, when she was a toddler, generally being described a someone who "speaks when she wants to", thus communicating nonverbally, however, we hear her thoughts and ruminations on some matters. Naturally, coupled with the fact that she is blind, people tend to assume she's deaf. When she does finally speak in chapter nine, she really does have a lot to say.
  • Rage Against the Reflection:
    • Nezumi, in Broken Gate, doesn't feel emotions as she shatters the mirror, however, as the narration cites, if she had felt any emotions, her actions could be described to be done out of "an annoyed rage".
    • Toki smashes the mirror in the poem Fragmented Rose, out of self-hate.
  • Rapunzel Hair: Toki's hair is extremely long and, in one story, the kids braid it by using it as a jumprope.
  • "Rashomon"-Style: Her Based on a Dream fic Second Story Window with Satsuki and Ragyo's perspective as how the two girls exited second story window and the events leading up to it. Satsuki's point of view claimed Ragyo was psychotic and would be prone to lashing out violently and the fact that her little sister jumped, whereas Ragyo's POV states that Satsuki was psychotic, although not violent and, actually, dropped her little sister out of the window before jumping herself. The traits that remains true to both point of views is that secretary committed suicide, the house they moved in, a missing little sister, the children being left in the care of a new family, and someone being mentally ill. Whether or not one of the point of views is correct is left up in the air for the reader to decide.
  • Reality Ensues: How she'd write some of her stories, especially her fanfics.
  • Rebellious Princess: Kamilah in The Story of a Disfigured Princess as something a downplayed version of this, as, initially, she was obedient to her loving but very overprotective and, subtly, overbearing family, regardless of their restrictions. However, because of her family's wants and expectations and the fact their relationship with her seemed to be one-sided, she decides, after an argument, to mutilate her face, grab as much of stuff and wealth as she can, change her name to "Barabel", and flee to another village. Her mourning family sends people to look for her but, because of her scars, they don't recognize her, leaving her to live quietly but happy with the villagers, said villagers loving her as much she does they.
  • Red Light District: "Batteries" mentions prostitution, as Ryuuko did strip and sleep around for money and, later, Satsuki was mentioned as to have worked in a red light district, however, we don't know specifically what she did (we do know she didn't sleep around or strip). Presumably, Ryuuko is living in an area akin to a red light district, as she's mentioned to be staying in a "shitass part of Tokyo".
  • Right Behind Me: In Just Doki, Doki had actually stood behind him, while Jinx ranted about her to Bunny, to which the latter of the three, said, “You know, I wouldn’t be saying that with her standing right behind you.”
  • Ripped from the Headlines: "The news can be interesting source of inspiration."
  • Resentful Guardian:
    • Toki was this to Jaynine and Sunflower, which is weird, considering that she volunteered to take them after they managed to track her down (they were in a children's home, prior). Apparently, why she took them in boiled down to, "her conscience wouldn't let hear the end of it".
    • Bunny is this to Madgie, however, there is the fact that the latter is a wanted fugitive and has been so since she was six, so it's a given.
  • Rich Bitch: Toki can be bitchy, wealthiness aside, however, Giselle is apparently this trope far worse, considering everyone couldn't stand her and being a Rich Bitch is a reason why Giselle was evicted.
  • Rouge Angles of Satin: She is prone to misspelling things when she writes, however, this mostly comes from the fact her word program doesn't have a spellcheck, regardless, she is quick to correct whatever errors she made once she notices or if pointed out.
  • Rose-Haired Sweetie: While her hair is red, instead of the usual pink and nor is she romantic, Doki is noted to be a sweetheart, at least, mostly in comparison to her twin sister, Toki.
  • Rule of Symbolism: Usually in her poems and artwork.
  • Sadist: Toki, in the sense, she would find amusement in causing someone else harm because she knows she can.
  • Seashell Bra: Clamshelle is the only one so far wearing a seashell bra, the other ones usually wear flowers or something akin to a bathing suit top, like Sing or Oyster.
  • Secretly Dying:
    • The subject of Raindrops and Sunshine, however, in the case of the former, we can't really tell if Ryuuko knew she was dying or, rather, if she was in denial, regardless living out the remainder of her life with Satsuki.
    • Also the same with the fic Paper Cranes but played with, Satsuki is sick but Ryuuko is quite aware that she's hiding something and doesn't know what, regardless, knows that Satsuki seemed to be in denial about dying. In the end, we (and Ryuuko) find out why Satsuki kept the extent and diagnosis of her illness a secret, the reason being because she was dying of heart failure and the doctors offered to place her on a list to receive a heart transplant, even if there were no donors available, to which she declined, knowing she'd die before a donor is found and not wanting Ryuuko to kill herself, so the latter's heart could be used in a transplant.
  • Security Blanket: A concept darkly (but humorously) explored with a pic titled "Security Blanket", where a little girl is holding a severed leg.
  • Self-Harm: A subject of at least a few poems and stories.
  • Serial Escalation: The poem A Cut for You has a rather gory case of this as its about two friends (presumably female, according to one of the lines and the description) playing a game where the goal seems to be who can cause themselves the most injury. The game ends when one of them hacks off a limb and they declare it a tie.
  • Shout-Out:
    • According to the description of "Big Beautiful Bunny Dance", it was inspired by Marilyne's dance
    • Broken Gate character Mirai's line "For once, in centuries, I shall rest." is a subtle shoutout to Sleeping Beauty
    • Some of her artwork (symbolism wise) was influenced by Frida Kahlo.
  • Shown Their Work: She does like to research and would like to portray things as accurately as she can, however, she might "wing it".
  • Silk Hiding Steel: Toki and Doki but the trope is more apparent with the latter, as Doki is does tend to behave "ladylike" and tends to be willing to handle things with fairness and by being nice, however, she will fight if need be (while the former tends to fight whenever).
  • Skunk Stripe: Toki seems to have acquired one, with a lone streak of gray in her red hair.
    • The girl in the "Best Friend" pic.
    • In the Mysterious Lady Kiryuuin, Satsuki mentioned to have developed a pale gray (almost white) streak in her otherwise raven black hair.
    • Invoked with Brownie, who streak-dyes various colors in her blonde hair.
  • Sliding Scale of Anthropomorphism: Amoridere's anthros are between A Little Bit Beastly and Petting Zoo People. However, non-anthro animals do exist in the same universe as anthros do.
  • Sliding Scale of Gender Inequality: Her stories tend to have mostly females in them, the reason being, according to her, "It's easier to write from." At times, she does have males but females tend to outnumber them. Regardless, she tends to portray them as being rather equal.
  • Sliding Scale of Idealism vs. Cynicism: She writes more on the cynical end.
  • Snow Means Death: A good chunk of her stories take place in the winter and are usually bleak
  • The Speechless: Cyanne and, according to one story, something is wrong with her vocal cords. She does, somehow or another, forces herself to speak, however, she can't talk past a certain volume.
  • Social Services Does Not Exist: While they did exist, social services didn't do anything for Toki throughout the time she was abused in Flashbacks I, until she was taken to the hospital for leukemia and even then Kaeda got off free for her crimes, as she was only charged in neglect. To make it worse, shortly after, she was sent back to live with her, despite almost dying or her injuries prior.
  • Song Fic: Asuka and Frozen, however, the former is different than most in the sense that the lyrics come after the story, while in the former (said fic also being a poem fic) has the lyrics interlinking as the song plays in the background.
  • Spell My Name with an "S":
    • Sunflower's nickname is either spelled "Sunnie" or "Sunni".
    • Is Brittani's name spelled "Brittanie", "Brittani", "Britni", or "Britani"? So far the most constant spelling seems to be "Brittani".
  • Species Surname: Bunny's last name is "Rabbitwright", referring to her Leporidae family.
  • Stepford Smiler: The depressed and unstable types were referenced in the poem Smiles Can Hide Secrets.
  • Sunny Sunflower Disposition: Apparently, her pikachu Sunflower has this disposition, if her blog entries are a clue, as alluded to in her name.
  • Surprise Pregnancy: Ryuuko's first pregnancy in "Batteries" with Hoshi (or, as she intended to name her, "Esther"), as she didn't know until she had given birth to her.
    • Toki and Doki's pregnancies were these. However, Toki didn't know she was pregnant and she wasn't conscious when she gave birth, while Doki found out while she was in labor. This is justified, as neither of the two had babies prior and there's the fact that erin pregnancies aren't overt (along with that they reproduced through parthenogenesis)
  • Tertiary Sexual Characteristics: The titular "Computer Rat", as we know the rat is a girl because of her eyelashes and a flower behind an ear.
  • Tangled Family Tree: It's hard to explain Bunny and Madgie's family tree but it is clear it is this trope, seeing that the two have so many relatives, it is hard to tell who is related to which, as well as the fact that they are so numerous they are scattered throughout the world, coupled with the fact that some of them are all younger than Madgie. The fact that they are anthro rabbits also has something to do with it.
  • Textile Work Is Feminine: Toki and Doki have similar hobbies, usually involving knitting and sewing.
  • Theme Twin Naming:
    • Toki and Doki are named as a play on Japanese word for "sometimes" (tokidoki) as well as being alliterative.
    • Brownie and Brittani are alliterative twin names.
    • While they are not twins and are instead triplets, Patrinia, Delphinia, and Meadow Rue follow a theme of being named after flowers.
  • Too Dumb to Live:
    • As we learn in one story, antagonizing Toki or failing to pay rent (when you live in her house, no less) will not end well for you, as Giselle didn't pay mind to consideration. To elaborate, she was cursed for not heeding the advice.
    • Despite warnings not to, Toki buys a possessed doll and it's quite obvious as to what happens next. To her credit, however, her sense of danger was suppressed by the medication she was on (Toki, sans medication, would probably be paranoid).
    • In the case of Broken Gate, Ryuuji, a total bastard, as per flashback, decided to antagonist his sister, Nezumi further, despite her offering forgiveness, nevermind the fact that she placed a curse on him for treating her so poorly, which wasn't a very good idea to start with, as she is an omnyouji and a powerful one at that, along with the fact that he's the reason that she had opened the gate in a fit of retaliation. Later in the story, he decides to antagonize her again and, unsurprisingly, while she's dying, she breaks the seal, opening the gate, and whatever was sealed behind had swallowed him, ending his life once and for all.
  • Took a Level in Jerkass: Madgie in later stories.
  • The Topic of Cancer:
    • Toki being ill with leukemia. This is more straighter and somewhat verging on Littlest Cancer Patient, as she, during her time in the hospital, would like to enjoy what little she had left
    • Ryuuko having Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma in Through Thick and Thin and, its prequel, Odds and Probabilities. Her case is a little downplayed, as Ryuuko takes the news rather well and has a rather realistic outlook on the subject, all while, looking to spend time with her sister.
    • Satsuki in Sunshine has Leukemia and she's rather matter of fact towards the diagnosis, along with already feeling like she has little to lose (with her sister dying some time before).
  • Toplessness from the Back: Brownie in the picture titled "Tramp Stamp" and Bunny in "Big Beautiful Bunny Dance VII". Also, Toki in "Bathing", then again, she is fully nude (her buttocks hidden from view).
  • Toxic Friend Influence:
    • In Toki, Jinx, and Spin in the Bronx, a lesson Toki had taken from her new friends, Barcelona (known as "Pup") and Holly is that bad behavior and criminal acts are tolerated and okay, considering that she somehow destroyed the front of a store with a brick and the latter two encouraging it.
    • Toki's effect on her friends is similar, as Brownie will do almost anything the former tells her to, often going along with whatever the former's schemes are.
  • Troubled Abuser: Toki starts out troubled by her past and abuses her friends and then Frailine (real name: Jaynine). Her reasons for any of this: She's mentally ill and cannot always discern right from wrong, and another is that she was abused and almost died of leukemia as a result of her caregiver's neglect (something she can't let go and that drove her insane, thus making her ticking time bomb all through high school, in which she was borderline insane) and now wanted to be the one in control and the one to hurt. Her reasons for abusing Frailine is because its more like revenge and a slap to the face to her deceased adopted (technically foster) mother for abusing her after Frailine was born. Sad thing about that, she wasn't always like this and was once very sweet, making her sort of a Jerkass Woobie and her past a Break the Cutie.
  • Unfinished Business: From The Girl in the Pink Dress, we have Nui and the reason she haunts the Kiryuuins is because she just simply wants to go outside, something that, due to illness which caused her death eighty-years prior (assuming the story takes place in 2015), she couldn't do, leaving her ghost trapped in the house long after her death. When she is freed, she thanks the Kiryuuins before leaving and, later on, reincarnating.
  • Used to Be a Sweet Kid: Toki, when we were introduced to her backstory, however, the effects of abuse, negative reinforcement (i.e bad behavior was encouraged), and, later on, mental illness turned her into what she is now.
  • Vague Age:
    • Toki and her twin sister Doki are older than they appear but how old they are is never stated, though, going by Doki's Chronicles, they should be about either in their late eighties to early nineties, as the setting of one of the stories was in the nineteen twenties to thirties and their clothing from that point in time seems to suggest about that.
    • There is also Eglantine and presumably she is a toddler, as she is still in diapers and young enough to attend nursery school, though, if the passage of time is to go by, she should be four if not five and what is known is that she still a young child. Justified, in this case as no one has no clue as to how old Eglantine is because they don't know her birthday, thus they wouldn't know the year in which she was born in.
    • Brownie is stated to be "likely to be in early to mid twenties" though she was about twelve or thirteen when she met Toki, making that a tad more appropriate.
    • Magnolia is stated to be about 2-4.
  • Virtual Soundtrack: Kind of a recent user to this trope. If read on AO3, there may be a link to the particular song playing in the background, otherwise,on Fanfiction Dot Net, its just mentioned. Apparently, she also does something of a meta-version of this, as, to pick a song for the scene, she listens to it.
  • The Voiceless: Sunflower's blog implies that she is, considering that the photo captions are italicized and minus quotation marks.
  • Will Not Tell a Lie: Apparently, according to one story, Doki will not lie, even if she was "staring into the face of death". However, in parenthesis, this would depend on the circumstance in which she would have to.
    Narration: Everyone knew Doki would never tell a lie, even if she was staring into the face of death (though, it would depend on the circumstances in which she would have to lie), and surely no one, not even, she herself, can convince her to lie.
  • Would Hurt a Child:
    • The workers at the "orphanage" mentioned in Lost, Found have no apparent qualms with child abuse, let alone experimenting on children.
    • Toki plays with this, as she seems inclined to harm Jaynine, but she is very caring to other children that depend on her.
  • What If?: How she came up with the ideas for Kiryuuin Chronicles and Kill la Kill AU
  • Where the Hell Is Springfield?: Generally, the locations of her stories are rather vague but, most of the time, she does portray them in an American setting (her home country), unless stated otherwise (i.e her fanfic Concerning a Drifter takes place in Japan). Likewise, while they take place in America, we don't know exactly where, unless also stated (i.e Jinx, Spin, and Toki, according to a few stories, stayed in the Bronx, New York).
  • Wrench Wench: Brownie, mostly, and usually being mentioned to be tinkering with something mechanical. Her profile to mentions her having a fondness for making guns
  • Writers Cannot Do Math: As she's stated, she's not very good at math and calculations in regards to someone's age in story, at times, are incorrect.
