* ArcFatigue: "Fairy Tale" takes ''five chapters'' to tell how [[spoiler:Spooky ended up in the Fey Realm]]. Even the author was getting frustrated with how long it was taking.
* MoralEventHorizon: Astorian nobility considers any without magic to be no more than slaves. They purposely cause ships and planes to crash into their island, so that they can enslave their passengers. They also kidnapped and enslaved the entirety of the first British embassy and plenty more from the second and third.
* LesYay: Agent Doodle and Lady Gadel.
