- Anti-Climax Boss: Mao could be seen as one example, because he is shoot unceremoniously by Alexander after revealing his past.
- Crowning Moment of Heartwarming: Shirley and Alexander share one in the Christmas Episode. Also, Bismarck concern for him is touching.
- Deserving a mention, despite the heels of the tearjerker and wham episode it came off of, Cornelia and Alexander's comforting of one another is very much heartwarming, and serves to reestablish their previously strained relationship.
- Growing the Beard: The fic is already pretty good, easily of a professional leve, but Chapter 15 is when Soran, who is already a Hero of Another Story, but turns into The Protagonist from its own version of Code Geass.
- Ho Yay: Luluko and Alexander, especially after the "I Love You" speech, and Suzaku gets too much in character during the transformist festival.
- Les Yay: Nena and Carline.
- Narm: 'I didn't want you to be loyal! I wanted you to be my friend' Can come off like this considering it can remind people of a certain wrestling meme, Also it is Lelouch saying it in his usual melodrama way. This and a few other lines as well can come off as Narm if you have a sadistic sense of humour.
