YMMV: Last Exile Abridged
- Crowning Music of Awesome: "Through the Steam and Clouds", a parody of "Through The Fire And The Flames" on a fiddle and a doumbek (both played by Unwardil). 6:04 - 7:40.
- Ear Worm: "Chocobo On Rye", for a start.
- True Art Is Incomprehensible: Alex as a writer lives and breathes this trope. Most of the more symbolic things that happen late in the series are a result of Alex's strange vision.
- Alex's insane, incomprehensible art is actually part of the plot. Unwardil thought getting him to be the writer would make make his judgment more valued so he could resume saving the series. Too bad She Who Must Be Obeyed loved Alex's writing.
