Added DiffLines:



* BedmateReveal: Brad, Luna and Rainbow Dash spend the night fighting nightmare monsters in the dream realm, but Brad gets struck by a monster and [[LaserGuidedAmnesia forgets what was going on all night]]. Cue him waking up and finding out--much to his horror--that he's in bed with two female ponies.



* DeliberateValuesDissonance: Invoked. The constant clashes of social values between Brad and Pony society are meant to examine human social behavior (since DGD views ponies as allegories meant to examine human behavior through hypothetical personifications of non humans).

* ShoutOut: Luna taking Brad to fight nightmare monsters in the Deeper Slumber has a lot of references to the Dreamlands of the ''Literature/CthulhuMythos'', and later to ''Literature/TheNightLand''.


* SharedUniverse: It's implied that ''Mating Customs of Species Equus Parvus'' takes place in the same continuity as this story, but later. [[spoiler:With further implications that Brad and Twilight broke up.]]

Added DiffLines:

* TakeThat: The author states in a blog that part of the motivation for him writing this story, was [[AuthorTract to highlight the absurdity]] of pony/human romance that is rampant among HIE fanfiction.

* AlternateUniverseFic: Being based off the incomplete information from the first trailer alone leads to this. For one, "Brad" is actually a FanNickname, as his canon name Flash Sentry was not known back then.
