Added DiffLines:

*YouDontLookLikeYou: Meta and Invoked. The author revealed she has redesigned [[spoiler: [[ComicBook/TheMultiversity The Gentry]]]] because she felt that their original designs were underwhelming for beings who are supposed to be [[spoiler:[[ArchetypalCharacter villain archetypes]] taken to their [[ExaggeratedTrope limits]]]].

Added DiffLines:

* PlaceBeyondTime: Fourth World experiences time differently than the rest of the multiverse. For example: Apokolips began its war with New Genesis during Ash’s training with Steppenwolf and said has war going on for thousands of years, despite her starting in the middle of her 4 years of training.


Added DiffLines:

* StrongAsTheyNeedToBe: In-universe. At one point Ash notes that her powers seem to gave diminished, with attacks that would instantly kill only severely maiming her targets, and realizes that this trope is in effect.


"You’ve probably heard this story before. The one, or maybe a few hundred, about someone getting transported to another world. Usually, they get some weird power, maybe a waifu or three, have a fun adventure, hopefully grow as a person, defeat the Demon King….

Oh! Or maybe it’s one where the dashing/beautiful protagonist arrives in a world of Heroes and Villains! Perhaps they get to meet their favorite characters from childhood nostalgia, strike down vile foes straight off the slightly worn pages of a well-read comic book… Save the day, get the girl, stand on the tall building looking out over the shining city, cape flapping majestically in the wind….
Heh. I suppose that one is the closest to my story. It’s got all the things one could ask for. Mighty kings, terrible tyrants, men of steel, dark knights, order facing off against chaos…Justice and Doom locked in an eternal struggle for dominance as will and hope beat back against the tide of entropy and ruin…

Of course… one thing you must always remember… is to be careful what you wish for. Because sometimes, you get what you want… just not how you ever could have imagined."

Except her mother is Suli, and her father is Darkseid. She has been reborn as Ash, firstborn sibling of Kalibak and child of the only woman Darkseid has ever loved. She is on Apokalips. In the time when Darkseid's mother, Heggra, rules. With days at best before Heggra will assassinate her mother.

* EvenEvilHasLovedOnes: As the name if the story implies, despite being the physical embodiment of tyranny itself Darkseid genuinely loved Suli and cares about his children. He’s understandably pissed when he learns Heggra killed Suli while she is in the process of trying to beat Ash to death.

* HateSink: Heggra. Taking a figure mostly restricted to the lore and backstory of Darkseid, and blending in elements of the canon Granny Goodness and [[Literature/HarryPotter Professor Umbridge]] creates an utterly hateable being, even by the standards of Apokalips. When your most prominent action in the story is to kill the one woman Darkseid loved as she was 'Making him soft' and then trying to beat his daughter to death, it becomes very easy to see her as the absolute worst character in the story.
* MediumAwareness: Played with. Ash’s divine New God senses combined with her meta-knowledge means that she’s aware that she’s in a comic, but not that she’s in a self insert fic.

* VillainProtagonist: Goes somewhat without saying. Even if she is a good person, Ash is still a New God of Apokalips.
* WeHaveBecomeComplacent: Much to his horror, Steppenwolf discovers that he has grown soft during Heggra’s rule, [[spoiler: which nearly gets him killed when he’s fighting her]].
