YMMV / The Hearth Series

  • Crowning Moment of Awesome: The end of All's Fine that Ends Okay, when Elizabeta realizes that Ethan is dangerous and suspicious of her, so she calmly knocks him out with a frying pan. When she's nearly attacked by Jennifer, the perpetually-drunk Erin unexpectedly comes to the rescue.
  • Ensemble Darkhorse: Maddox seems to be this, given how many fan requests there are for one-shots of him.
  • One True Threesome: Played with for Elizabeta, Roderich, and Gilbert. They do resolve the UST between them via a threesome, but Roderich says it's the only one he'll participate in, because he is quite certain he's straight.
  • Nightmare Fuel: The descriptions of Sadiq's brain disease. He shows up in the third fic becoming increasingly forgetful and disoriented, while losing control of his fine motor skills like talking clearly. He is cured, but is only able to do this by having Eduard crack his head open and touch his brain (It Makes Sense in Context).
  • Jerkass Woobie: Sadiq. He is antisocial, gruff, and insults Hercules at every opportunity. In the last fic, we learn that he is Hercules's father, that he won't tell anyone because Hercules's mother didn't want him to be the father of her child, and that he's dying from brain disease. Ouch.
