%%* BadDreams: Sasha, after she kills a man. Leads to [[DrowningMySorrows drowning her sorrows]].

Added DiffLines:

* VillainDecay: Thoroughly averted. While a lot of fanfiction tends to have Drakken as a rather [[HarmlessVillain harmless villain]], this story has him very much in his first season, pre-decay mold. Before the start of the story, he [[KillItWithFire hits Ron with a flamethrower]].





* AlternateUniverse: With an AlternateHistory to match.

* AdaptationalHeroism: Some of the doubles of villains from the show are positively nice people in this universe.

* DeadpanSnarker: The ''narration,'' as befits a story told by any incarnation of Shego.
* DidYouJustHaveSex: Both Sasha and Reneca pick up each other's "happy walk".
* DomesticAbuse: Bobby Johnson, boyfriend of the alternative universe Kim.
* TheEmpire: A few, including UsefulNotes/TheBritishEmpire and many other European great powers.

* GreyAndGrayMorality: In the tradition of noir fiction. Even Kim and Ron end up sort of [[ALighterShadeOfGray off-white]].
* HairTriggerTemper: While she's got a better handle on it than Shego, Sasha still has her moments.

* InSpiteOfANail: Pretty much every ''WesternAnimation/KimPossible'' character has a double, though their lives (and world history) are often radically different.
* IntimatePsychotherapy: [[IncrediblyLamePun coupled]] with GladToBeAliveSex, in an unusually well-done way.
* JacobMarleyWarning: Sasha is called in on a child-neglect case: the mother died and the father [[DespairEventHorizon fell completely to pieces]] and started [[DrowningMySorrows drinking heavily]]. Afterwards, she becomes more cautious in her investigation and makes Steve promise to hold himself together if anything does happen to her.
* KnowledgeBroker: Sasha's brother Mike (alt-Mego) has a finger is every pie and knows the dirt on everyone in Go City.
* LawOfInverseFertility: Sasha and Steve, in the {{backstory}}.
* LighterAndSofter: Not [[DarkerAndEdgier the story]], but some of the doubles of villains from the show are positively nice people in this universe.

Details like this are casually thrown out now and then, sometimes because [[{{Foreshadowing}} they will be significant later]], but mostly to [[WorldBuilding create a world]] that's living and working beyond the story.
