Rape Is a Special Kind of Evil: This doesn't actually apply here. The reason Kvothe said he could not rape Fela is because he simply cannot perceive her as a potential sexual partner. Fela realises this and that is why she's upset.

I disagree: He has to ask Sim why it would be a bad idea to give her everything in his purse to strip for him after he (Kvothe) had been 'bobbed. He repeatedly mentions how attractive she looks.

  • Hot Amazon: Kvothe finds two Adem mercenaries quite attractive, and bones both of them.

Hot Amazon was transplanted to Amazon Chaser. There is not enough context here to tell if this is misuse, or a good example. If this character is attracted to her because of her Amazon-ness, please return it to the main work page under the correct trope name.

I'm confused by this entry:

Everybody Has Lots of Sex: Subverted by the Adem—they have so much sex they honestly don't believe that men have anything to do with pregnancy.

While the Adem view on pregnancy is unusual, how does it in any way subvert the trope? If I understand correctly, Everybody Has Lots of Sex is simply about relationships leading quickly to sex. This is the case for the Adem (and Kvothe himself), so I'd say the trope is played fairly straight.

I was thinking the same thing. I don't know what trope the pregnancy ideas would be but I think the above trope is played pretty straight.

Isn't it exaggerated by the Adem thinking? Frankly its over the top imo, but hey that's another discussion.
