* GenreSavvy: After [[StopHelpingMe that debacle]], Jeremiah decides to line up the security guards outside of sensitive areas, reinforcing the perimeter. It allowed for wider spaces and plays to the marksmanship of the guards.


** Auerbach provides an interesting subversion. He wears the same armor as [[http://images1.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20091107202326/codegeass/images/8/88/Knight_of_the_Rounds_-_Nightmare_of_Nunnally.jpeg the Knights of the Rounds]] in CodeGeassNightmareOfNunnally, but he's not an actual member.

''[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/8778152/1/Zero-s-Requiem Zero's Requiem]]'' is an ongoing ''Anime/CodeGeass'' FanFiction by Serocco. It bills itself as a ForWantOfANail story that changes the outcome of the Euphinator incident, and thus, the majority of the plot from then onwards.

Unlike what one would expect, however, the story surprisingly starts off with ''Marianne'' during her time as the Knight of Two (a canon rank she attained in the series proper), in what seems to be a prologue. We'll see how it develops.

!!Tropes:

* AdaptationExpansion: It enjoys exploring and expanding the canon depictions of the characters' backstories and personalities. On the other hand, you'll notice how certain details from canon were changed here and there. For example, Charles [[spoiler:has his own code]], when he never did in the actual show. The Sword of Akasha lacks the DysonSphere, and it has the blade shown in Nightmare of Nunnally.
* AscendedExtra: Expect at least some of these to pop up sooner or later.
* AssholeVictim: Alahn Mercer and Ronald Thursley.
* BadBoss: Ronald Thursley was the captain of the security guards in front of the throne room. Killed ''four'' of his guys before he was gunned down.
* BaitAndSwitch: Henrietta straddles Cedric's waist, leans close to his face... and headbutts him.
* BareYourMidriff: C.C.'s wearing a tube top in her debut, but there hasn't been much attention given to it yet.
* BigBrotherIsWatching: [[spoiler: Auerbach can "hear" the thoughts of whomsoever happens upon the vicinity of a Thought Elevator]].
* BiggerBad: Apparently, [[spoiler:Auerbach]], but he's only ever spoken to Marianne thus far.
* BoomHeadshot: Mercer killed Liggins this way.
** C.C. did the same to Mercer, appropriately enough.
* TheChessmaster: Marianne
* ColorCodedCharacters: The Britannian military commanders all have a color motif. Andreas Darlton is violet/purple, Bouris Upson is green, Carvys Thrincher is blue, Avery Carrack is red, Bledrie Senthrum is white and Ciarran Osprey is orange.
* DangerouslyShortSkirt: C.C. fights a pack of palace guards with a short green skirt.
* DarkSkinnedRedhead: Alastrine Niddique.
* DawnOfAnEra
* DeadpanSnarker: C.C., of course.
** Auerbach as well. His ''first line'' is "Are you rehearsing a script?" when Marianne talks to herself about the contents of the Thought Elevator.
* DeathByIrony: Ronald Thursley, the palace guard who killed his comrades via friendly fire, gets killed ''by'' his comrades via friendly fire.
* DealWithTheDevil: Charles and V.V. [[spoiler:received their codes from Auerbach]], according to Marianne.
* TheDreaded: Auerbach, for sure. His mere presence is enough to discomfort the normally-serene Marianne Lamperouge.
* DoomedByCanon: We all know [[PlotTriggeringDeath what happens to Marianne]] in canon. There's little to doubt the same will occur here.
* {{Eagleland}}: The United States doesn't exist, but Americans still do, evidently.
* EndOfAnAge: Britannians fear that Zero will cause one.
* EpicFail: "Is Spanish just English, but in another language?"
* EvilSoundsDeep: Auerbach shares the same demonic voice tone as the Videogame/TheDarkness, according to WordOfGod. That should explain everything you need to know about him.
* EvilOverlord: Rhydderch
* {{Expy}}: Henrietta mar Britannia has the same appearance as [[LightNovel/TheFamiliarOfZero Princess Henrietta of Tristain]].
* {{Foreshadowing}}: The title of the second chapter, ''persona non grata'' is Latin for "an unwanted person". [[TheDreaded Auerbach]] makes his debut in that exact chapter.
* GeneralRipper
* GenreSavvy: After [[StopHelpingMe that debacle]], Jeremiah decides to line up the security guards outside of sensitive areas, reinforcing the perimeter. It allowed for wider spaces and plays to the marksmanship of the guards.
* [[spoiler:GodOfEvil: Implied. "Your ideas, their work," Marianne once said to Auerbach, in reference to the Thought Elevator. Given his usual demeanor, he sure has the "evil" part nailed. ]]
* HeKnowsTooMuch: Mercer shoots Liggins in the head for hearing something about Geass.
* HumanoidAbomination: [[spoiler:Auerbach describes himself as the "source" of the Thought Elevator, whatever that means. It's also implied that he ''is'' the Sword of Akasha, but we're not sure if it's true]].
* HumanShield: C.C. hid behind Thursley just as Coughlin and Nuttridge opened fire. Given Thursley's track record, as well as the fact that they only fired once C.C. was out of the way, it seems that Coughlin and Nuttridge killed Thursley ''intentionally''.
* KnowledgeBroker: Wizard, just like his canon counterpart. He's even called one in the story.
* LackOfEmpathy: There's a distinctly low amount of concern coming from Thursley over his accidental murders of ''four'' of his comrades.
* LovableSexManiac: Alastrine was rather... [[LesYay interested]] in [[ThreeWaySex sharing a guy]] with Marianne.
* MeanBoss: Olivia Zevon, as far as Cedric is concerned.
* MegaCorp
* MrFanservice: Hunky, muscular call boy Cedric Lahirr is introduced [[ShirtlessScene without his shirt]]. Thanks!
** His brother, Ciarran, is not slouch either. He's leaner, introduced in his boxers, seems to be TheCharmer...
* MsFanservice: Henrietta and Alastrine both shamelessly sport some delicious lingerie.
* OCStandIn:
** Auerbach provides an interesting subversion. He wears the same armor as [[http://images1.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20091107202326/codegeass/images/8/88/Knight_of_the_Rounds_-_Nightmare_of_Nunnally.jpeg the Knights of the Rounds]] in CodeGeassNightmareOfNunnally, but he's not an actual member.
** Michael Loughner, the colonel that talked to Bartley in chapter three? He's one of the [[http://images4.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20120222195424/codegeass/images/9/90/Bartley_and_Code-R_Research_Team.jpg Code R researchers]] that Bartley keeps ordering around in canon.
** Francis Eardley is one of those [[http://images3.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20091128044137/codegeass/images/0/0f/Britannian_Palace_Guard_Rifle_Spears.png palace guards]], minus the banana peals on his helmet. A lot of the [=OCs=] in Chapter Nine happen to be palace guards, as well.
** Saiduhr wears the same uniform as [[http://images1.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20100612002342/codegeass/images/d/dd/LelouchRoyalGuard.jpg Lelouch's Royal Guard]], despite not being a member.
** You see [[http://images2.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20091118220728/codegeass/images/1/17/Charles_and_Geass_Order_in_C%27s_World.png those guys surrounding Charles?]] That's what Roger Murdoch looks like.
** Denecour, Decorous, Kiriakou, Demetrios, Berenice, Nearchus, Iadarola, Andriscus are all names and personalities given to the background extras who appear to be members of the Britannian Imperial Family.
* OhCrap: Marianne gets a very brief one [[spoiler:after Auerbach reveals that he can hear her thoughts (and thus, her intentions).]]
* OOCIsSeriousBusiness: The normally serene Marianne completely drops her smile once Auerbach shows up.
* PrecisionFStrike: "She took my fuckin' ship."
* QuirkyMiniBossSquad: Pluton.
* RankUp: Loughner's briefly mentioned to be a major before Bartley promotes him to colonel.
** Jeremiah Gottwald goes from a security captain into a margrave.
* RealityWarper: ''Maybe''. [[spoiler:Auerbach]] screws with the scenery to intimidate Marianne in chapter two, but it stops as soon as she blinks, so we're not sure if it was an illusion.
* SilentAntagonist: Thursley never speaks, but he's ''quite'' a pain regardless.
* SlasherSmile: Auerbach sports a ''permanent'' grin on his "face". Since it's the same as the Knights link above, we imagine it's rather freaky.
* StopHelpingMe:
** Ronald Thursley, who killed ''four'' of his comrades while trying to fight C.C. One has to question if he was ever really "helping" to begin with.
** His compatriot, Rodney Coughlin (one of the two who killed Thursley, mind you), accidentally stabbed Owen Nuttridge's head while trying to attack C.C.
* TheTease: Henrietta had a moment where she looked like she was about to kiss Cedric, before headbutting him. Said he needed to bring another guy first.
-->'''Cedric''': You ''evil'' woman!
* ThreeWaySex: Implied, between Cedric, Alastrine and Henrietta, though ''he's'' the call boy.
* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: Alastrine and Henrietta, respectively.
* WalkingShirtlessScene: Three of the male members of Pluton wear skimpy bolero jackets. Deconstructed once C.C. burrows a couple of bullets into their chests. Tabram and Eddowes, the two who get shot, die of their wounds due to the lack of protection.
* WhamLine: "What did you do to my code?!"
* YaoiFangirl: Henrietta, at least, wants Cedric to get a second guy to participate if he wants some action with her.
* YouAreInCommandNow: Marianne promotes Jeremiah into a margrave after recognizing that a two-bit security captain isn't gonna convince other two-bit security captains to follow his lead.
* ZettaiRyouki
