* ForegoneConclusion: Both the title (Requiem, Mass for the dead) and the summary is telling us that Lincoln will die at the end. Whether he actually dies or not is not really the point of the story; the fanfic is centered in Lincoln having to face his own mortality and his family and friends trying to accept this terrible news. Since chapter nine, we know that another big theme of the story is the impact one person can have in everyone else's life, transcending their own.
* FriendlessBackground: Adrien, who spend his whole life traveling the world with his mother and thus never had a chance to make friends. Despite only meeting once in the hospital, he considers Lincoln to be his first true friend ever.
