YMMV: Rose of the Prophet
- Draco in Leather Pants: Yeah, but it's still important to remember that Auda is never a good person.
- Ho Yay: Mathew is Khardan's wife, and admits to being in love with him even if there's an Asexual element involved. Auda hits on Mathew throughout, even after discovering "Blossom" isn't a girl, and is very affectionate with his "brother" Khardan as well, in between propositioning Zohra. Mathew was involved with another boy who was killed by Auda's slave traders and apparently homosexuality is a total non-issue in his homeland based on his confusion about why this would upset anyone.
- Too Cool to Live: Auda Ibn-Jad.
