YMMV: Fangs And Fins
  • Alternate Character Interpretation: Ben is either one of the best characters in the series, if not the best, or standing in the way of James/Rose. Regardless of shipping, some readers dislike him due to his past actions. See Base Breaker.
    • Some see Rose's behavior as a result of her mother's passing and that she should be pitied, while others refuse to handwave her behavior and see her as a bratty Attention Whore that is unnecessarily rude to Lily.
  • Base Breaker: Ben and Rose as individuals and as a pairing. Ben tends to get heat for not having properly atoned for the way he treated Rose in season 1, whereas Rose is seen by some as whiny, rude, hypocritically and bratty.
  • Crack Pairing: Lily/James has become a sort of car crash crackship, if only because they're disturbingly similar.
  • Designated Hero: Rose to some.
  • Ensemble Darkhorse: Lewis. He's one of the few characters in the series without any major issues and is a Nice Guy through and through.
  • Evil Is Sexy: Violet
  • Jerkass Woobie: Ben
  • Lawful Evil: The Vampire Hunters.
  • Les Yay: There's already canon lesbianism, but name two female characters, any two female characters, and you can probably make a pretty good argument for it, especially if Lily or Arianna are involved.
    • There's also a ton via flashback between the Nereids, some of which is blatant and some of which is only in subtext.
  • Magnificent Bitch: Violet
  • Ship Mates: Ben/Rose, James/Minerva, Lily/Arianna and Lewis/Laurel.
  • Too Cool to Live: Constance
  • The Scrappy: Jewel for most.
  • The Woobie: Arianna. Arianna. Arianna.
    • Lewis in season 1.
    • And Lily
    • Rose, depending on your sympathy.
    • Also Constance.
    • Elisabeth in regards to Violet
