A common tendency in Familiar of Zero fanfic is for Louise to summon someone else. ''A Green Sun Illuminates the Void'' by [=EarthScorpion=] takes the rather more unusual path of having her comprehensively fail to summon anything. And such a failure, so epic, so catastrophic, which ruins her destiny and the entire path of the narrative...

* ImportantHaircut: Louise cuts off most of her own hair in order to hide among the rebel horses, primarily because the women there all have short hair, but also because having [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair unusually-colored hair]] is a sure sign of being a mage and noble.
** She also has to use Derflinger to do it, because of the MadeOfIron status she gets from her Exaltation.

noble. She also has to use Derflinger to do it, because of the MadeOfIron status she gets from her Exaltation.



* LightningBruiser: Mages are stuck within human physical limits, although some seem to be able to enhance themselves. Exalts like Louise and [[spoiler: Scarron]] are decidedly not.
** Irukuwu also qualifies. In human form, she's quite fast, and can kill power armored soldiers with thrown food jars, even before she starts partial shapeshifting. In dragon form, well, she's a Rhyme Dragon. Those are [[TheDreaded scary as all malfeas, even for other dragons.]]

* NewPowersAsThePlotDemands: This happens to Louise, because she has a long list of powers, and the plot demands their first uses.
** It's also a more general side-effect of being an Exalt; if you've got the XP saved up and you ''need'' a new ability to succeed at whatever you're doing you can generally buy one that is thematically appropriate on the spot.
* NobodyPoops: Louise has learned that one of the perks of becoming a Green Sun Prince is that one no longer sweats, uses a chamberpot, or has [[NoPeriodsPeriod their monthly visitor]]; the trope otherwise appears to be played straight.
** To be more specific, this is the one of the effects of the Ceceylne Charm Transcendent Desert Creature (which Louise had straight out of Exaltation), not a default part of the Infernal Exaltation package.

* UnreliableNarrator: In a manner of speaking; Louise has so far not yet visited the realm of Malfeas in person and so her knowledge of the Yozis is limited solely to what Marisalon tells her (who is certainly an example of this trope, being a neomah), but due to the effects of her Infernal Exaltation, she's developed a schoolgirl crush on Malfeas himself, to possible unfortunate consequences later on.

* PlayingWithFire: So far, most of Louise's Charms seem to be taken from Malfeas (appropriate, given that she's a Slayer) and a good number of them relate to Malfeas' signature green fire. Most of it's for show or related to the Green Sun Prince's anima banner, but she's displayed apt use of Green Sun Nimbus Flare several times. It also appears to be dealing some forms of radiation sickness to certain people, as per canon.

%% Natter and ExampleIndentation problems ** PoisonousFriend: She genuinely has her host's well-being at heart, however, and most of her suggestions seem to be her attempting to advise Louise on a course of action that would make her happy. It just so happens she's saying this from the [[BlueAndOrangeMorality hyper-cynical and self-centered viewpoint of a demon]].

Oh, and separate from the [[FluffyTheTerrible potentially apocalyptic terror in the form of a cute pink-haired girl]], ''A Green Sun Illuminates the Void'' also rebuilds large amounts of the setting using historical research on 1600s Europe, and a cynical viewpoint on the nature of power and its use, recreating the contrast between gritty fantasy and horrific power that {{TabletopGame/Exalted}} is famous for.

* SuperpowerLottery: Louise and Tabitha won the jackpot. Louise got a [[{{Exalted}} Infernal Exaltation]], while Slyphid/Irukuwu is vastly more powerful and intelligent than any other familiar.
