* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: The scene at the end of Chapter 17, when the Spanish Inquisition appears for a paragraph. A shout out to ''Series/MontyPythonsFlyingCircus'', judging by all the other references to the same show. That whole sequence with Pip is also this.



* LesYay: Most of the original film's characters were bi, and the main character is clearly a lesbian. Reviewers really liked the ship Fay/Magenta (to the point they made hilarious nickname, see below), though [[spoiler:Fay marries another Original Character, Lady Flora, in the end.]]



* PortmanteauCoupleName: Reviewers shipping OriginalCharacter Fay and ''Film/TheRockyHorrorPictureShow'' character Magenta coined the bizarre nickname "Faygenta."


* ActorAllusion: Frank the Scientist (a character left over from the actual movie) as a ghost paraphrases the wizard Trymon from Film/TheColourOfMagic. Both were played by Creator/TimCurry.

Added DiffLines:

Though most of the fanfic follows the character Fay, a subplot involving two characters from the original film (Brad and Janet) was also featured. Fay was more popular with reviewers, though.
