Added DiffLines:

* MagicallyBindingContract: A Royal Promise, as in canon. But there are ways around that.

* WhoWantsToLiveForever: While not a particularly prevalent theme in-story, as Marceline's attitude seems to lean more towards LivingForeverIsAwesome, a rather nasty moment from her is revealed to be the result of her father trying to convince her [[MayflyDecemberRomance that trying to romance Finn is a bad idea], alluding to his own time with her mother. She and Finn make up, but she implies a fair bit that her inevitable outliving of Finn and their friends is a source of a lot of grief for her.

* BirdsOfAFeather: Finn and Marceline's many similarities lead them into a synergistic relationship that quickly incorporates a lot of [[WAFF]] that eventually goes from the TrueCompanions they are in canon to a RelationshipUpgrade.

* CuteMonsterGirl: Marceline, from Finn's point of view.



* FriendlyNeighborhoodVampire: In spite of her borderline ChaoticNeutral attitude, Marceline is revealed to be this. Billy mentions that there are other vampires extant through Ooo that feeds on the blood of random things to make up for being unable to feed on humans. When Finn and Jake mention [[VegetarianVampire Marceline and her ability to drain the color red instead]], Billy remarks how unusual that is and suggests that [[JerkassFacade she's much more moral and humane that she lets on.]]



* RelationshipUpgrade: Specifically, Finn and Marceline upgrade from TrueCompanions to lovers, and the plot revolves around the circumstances of it.



* ShipSinking: Finn X Princess Bubblegum right at the beginning of the story; she gets married to the Ice Prince, a newcomer to Ooo who's spent some time abroad, and the earlier parts of the story deal with Finn suffering a broken heart from this before growing closer to Marceline. Marceline being who she is, she throws a party to celebrate him getting over her.

Marceline being who she is, she throws a party to celebrate him getting over her.



* TheLadette: Marceline, as noted by Finn. And it appears to be a good point for him.
** Finn: I don't see her wearing an apron and and being all wifey, you know?



* VegetarianVampire: While in canon it's assumed that vampires CAN be like this, it's established here that vampires normally go around killing for sustenance. Marceline's fairly unique for feeding on color instead of killing to survive, and this revelation fuels Finn's insistence that she's a better person than she lets on.



** On a more serious front, [[spoiler: Marceline claims that this is the reason that she never told Finn about her ex-husband Nick. Finn's reaction to this isn't pretty.]]

Added DiffLines:

* [[SheIsAllGrownup He Is All Grown Up:]] Marceline has this reaction to Finn earlier on when she realizes he's a little taller than her now, and more profoundly when ever they've started to express romantic interest; she takes off his hat and is shocked at his handsomeness.

* AfterTheEnd: To an even greater extent than the original series. Marceline eventually directly tells Finn how the Mushroom War led to the creation of Ooo, as in this continuity she lived through the Mushroom War herself. Apparently the bombs blew open the dimensional barriers, bringing back the magic, and that caused the mutation of the remaining life-forms into the bizarre mutants we know and love.
