* [[Literature/TheDresdenFiles Harry Dresden]] has a quite justifiable bout of angrish after learning in ''Cold Days'' that, on top of everything else he has to deal with ''already'', [[spoiler: the island Demonreach is getting ready to explode and take out a fair chunk of the Midwest.]]
--> '''Harry:''' Of course it is. I ''swear'', this ''stupid'' town. [[LampshadeHanging Why does every hideous supernatural thing that happens happen]] ''here''? I'm gone for a few months and ''augh''. Be right back. Grrssll frrrsl rassle mrrrfl.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''[[Literature/SixteenThirtyTwo 1634: The Baltic War]]'', history teacher Melissa Mailey learns that [[spoiler:Harry Lefferts and his gang set fire to the Globe Theatre to cover their escape from the Tower of London. Which they also blew up. Oh, and they blew up London Bridge, too... or part of it, anyway]].
