* EvenBetterSequel: ''Ciem 2'' wanted to be this to the original ''Ciem''.
* MoralEventHorizon: Gunner and Skellig. But the trophy goes to Kelsea Linney. After her initial effort to blow up the Levens' house meets with an unexpected Musaran encounter, she [[spoiler: decides to activate the bomb from within her car and simply ram the house, killing herself ''and'' her small child in the process.]]
** [[spoiler: '''Note:''' She brought A SMALL BOY to help her BOMB SOMEONE'S HOUSE! Why? Because she hated him, she stole his debit card, he tried to get it back, and she tried to get revenge by calling him a stalker. But when her allegations and the facts didn't add up, she had to take matters into her own hands...]]
* TheWoobie: Candi, in some ways, though her {{Wangst}} may get a little annoying to some readers. At least at first, [[{{TheChewToy}} the universe just seems to hate her guts]].
