* StealthPun: Roman calling a [[LittleBitBeastly Faunus man]] with donkey ears a jackass.


* BreatherEpisode: After ''Fanfic/TheBlackHearts'' and the other stories having some {{Dark and Troubled Past}}s, the fact that this has more humor and less tragedy [[spoiler: and the only definitive victory for a protagonist]] makes it a refreshing change of pace.

Added DiffLines:

* PetTheDog: Roman offers Dwight 150 million Lien when the latter decides to quit since he has stuck by him all those years. Considering how [[LackOfEmpathy apathetic]] he has been to anyone who isnít Neo and his [[ItsAllAboutMe self-centered tendencies]] otherwise, this is quite the grand gesture. [[spoiler:Dwight, however, does not see it the same way. He sees it more as a pity hand-out since Dwight helped Roman build ''his'' criminal empire.]]


Added DiffLines:

** Romanís wife on the other hand (maiden name [[VideoGame/LifeIsStrange Chloe Price]]) [[AvertedTrope was not a shout-out]]. The [[NamesTheSame identical name]] was accidental on the writerís part.

There are more moments of humor and wit in this fic and even at its most serious, there will still be something you can genuinely enjoy. [[spoiler: And this story features [[BittersweetEnding the closest thing to a happy ending]] for any of the solo stories.]]


* GenderMisdirection: In the first chapter, Kincaid isnít revealed to be a woman until the very last paragraph. Roman finally uses a pronoun that confirms her gender. Up to that point, youíd be forgiven for thinking that Kincaid was male. Even after that, her gender is obscured until she is formally introduced. Itís CommonKnowledge InUniverse, but it takes a while for the readers to get in on this tidbit of information.
