** One explanation is the fact that Twilight being an intelligent being, something unicorns are not in the Harry Potter universe, makes people sometimes forget she is an unicorn.

Added DiffLines:

* OOCIsSeriousBusiness: Fred and George, after they [[spoiler:reveal that Scabbers is not really a rat]]. When Percy suggests that it's one of their pranks, George snaps, "Shut up, Perce, we wouldn't joke like this."


** As a result of Twilight's friendship with Neville, she saves him from being injured in the first flying class, and the Rememberall incident that led to Harry's recruitment to the Gryffindor Quidditch team never takes place. [[spoiler:This leads to Harry being absent from the start of the Halloween feast (because it's the anniversary of his parents' death), coming downstairs later only to be cornered by the troll, and being saved by Twilight.]]

[[spoiler:This leads to Harry being absent from the start of the Halloween feast (because it's the anniversary of his parents' death), coming downstairs later only to be cornered by the troll, and being saved by Twilight.]]]] In addition, due to Draco never challenging Harry to a duel, they never met Fluffy.



** Twilight and Spike's presence leads to the Gryffindors opening their Christmas presents in the common room instead of Harry and Ron's room as in the book. This leads to [[spoiler:Fred and George noticing Peter Pettigrew's name on the Marauder's Map alone in Harry's room and realising that he's not a familiar after all. As a result, Scabbers/Pettigrew is exposed as an animagus two books early and captured.]]



** Also due to Draco never challenging Harry to a duel they never met Fluffy.



* PetTheDog : Compared to the books, [[ButtMonkey Neville Longbottom]] doesn't fare nearly as badly, especially since he's one of the first friends Twilight and Spike make in the Wizarding World. {{Lampshaded}} by Twilight in-story when she notes to herself that with over a year of experience at being one of Fluttershy's best friends, 'how to coax Neville out of his shell without spooking him' is a problem she's overqualified to deal with.

Added DiffLines:

* WorldBuilding: The story spends a significant amount of time on the discussion of how Potterverse and MLP magic systems work.


** Clearly a ChekhovsGun: there's an entire sequence in chapter 2 where Twilight explains [[AsYouKnowBob to Spike]] that she's got so much magical power that she has to throttle every spell she casts down to almost nothing in order to avoid ExplosiveOverclocking. Capped off with Twilight reflecting that during her early days at Celestia's School for Gifted Unicorns she had such a problem with PowerIncontinence that she once ''melted a frying pan with a food-warming charm'', to the point where for months afterward the teachers were putting on safety goggles before asking her to attempt any spellcasting.

* KillerRabbit: Twilight Sparkle. Between her cheerful and modest demeanor, her tendency to be underestimated by British wizards because she's a sentient magical creature (see FantasticRacism above), her being in Hogwarts as a first-year student (i.e., in the same class as the 11-year-old kids), and the part where she's a small cute-looking purple unicorn, pretty much everybody Twilight meets treats her as a precocious but mostly harmless child. Nobody (except Spike, of course) has yet managed to grasp that Twilight is actually a full adult by the standards of her home culture, an experienced combat veteran who has helped defeat multiple eldritch horrors, and quite likely one of the five most magically powerful beings extant on her home planet -- with the four ahead of her being three alicorns and Discord. This is probably going to become a plot point later.

Added DiffLines:

* CurbStompBattle: Twilight vs. the troll. The troll briefly but ''very'' painfully discovers that while it might be large and fearsome to British wizards, to the most powerful non-alicorn wizard in Equestria (and someone who is more than used to battling Equestrian monsters) a Potterverse mountain troll barely qualifies as opposition.
