These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
Darkness-Induced Audience Apathy: Averted. The authors were so anxious about this happening that they put a paragraph or so of narration into nearly every book clarifying that yes, there are things worth fighting for, and that "for all the madness, there is also wonder."
Ensemble Darkhorse: The entire game line is something of this to the New World of Darkness in general. The game was originally supposed to consist of a limited run of six core books (and even that was only because the publisher was convinced to expand from the intended five). The line became so popular that they released three more print books, a PDF-only tie-in, and several pre-published adventures for Storytellers to use.
Genius Bonus: When describing Treasured, who were objets d'art, the painting they reference is "The Roses of Heliogabalus". Read the description. Sounds exactly like something a True Fae would do.
Mary Sue: The realm of Arcadia could very well be named The Realm of Mary Suedom. The entire point of True Fae existence is that they are all as amazing and supreme and perfect as they dream themselves to be... but they require conflict against each other to give themselves meaning, and the winners get to be even more perfect than perfect, while the losers fade further and further away.
Narm: A line in the Rites of Spring sourcebook: 'But anywhere the juice ran, the wound tightened, puckered up like a nervous butthole...'
Paranoia Fuel: Anyone could be a fetch. You could be a fetch. There's no way of knowing until the Changeling comes back...Or you get hurt with cold iron, which is EXCEEDINGLY rare in the modern age.
Any opening, archway, doorway or reflective surface can be a portal to the hedge. So making sure every door is locked won't do you any good, since they can come out from under your bed, your bathroom mirror or even from the TVscreen!!
Iron Woobie: But even the weakest changeling was able to muster up enough courage and independent thought to escape their abusers. The True Fae are as gods to normal humans, but for all their power, changelings can escape to freedom- and thousands have done so.
