So, I was reading this fanfic where character 1 plays a prank on character 2 trying to get him to lighten up. Character 2 gets angry, but after a series of events, character 2 realizes that it was Actually Pretty Funny and plays the same prank on character one in the end. The dialogue in both scenes is completely different, so is it still an ironic echo? Is there such thing as a situational ironic echo?
