YMMV / October Daye

  • Foe Yay: According to Toby in book 1, she and Tybalt have never gotten along when she was growing up, with her being a mere changeling, although their current relationship hints at something else.
  • He's Just Hiding!: ...Or not. The fae sometimes confuse death with a long nap. But that's justified given these are the people who put Rip Van Winkle to sleep, along with the fact that the purebloods are immortal.
    • Elfshot, which puts purebloods to sleep for a hundred years if they're shot with it. Too bad it's usually fatal to anyone not a pureblood...which might be overlooked by some folks who shoot them.
    • There are also poisons which kill fae, and those are often mixed into elfshot so sleep of 100 years turns into forever...or until the Night Haunts come.
  • Informed Attribute: The Luidaeg doesn't really do anything that scary.
  • Nightmare Fuel: Lots, especially if you're not fond of blood.
    • In Ashes of Honor, Toby finds herself kidnapped, with her hands bound by twine. However, thanks to her new super-healing powers, she can be a bit more cavalier with her own physical well-being... so she scrapes her wrists against the walls until the twine breaks, scraping away a good portion of her actual wrists as well. Doubles as Nausea Fuel!
