** About every town in Mars has something named after [[Literature/TheMartian Mark Watney]], who is a folk hero of sorts for the Martian people (including Jade's hometown of Watney's Crossing at the edge of Acidalia Planitia, and the Watney Trail leading from it to the Schiaparelli crater).

Added DiffLines:

* KillItWithFire: In prevision of her trip beyond the Wall, Jade gets over her aversion to wildfire and borrows a little from Thoros to make some incendiary grenades, which prove to be pretty efficient at burning wights and Others alike (along with a good chunk of forest).


* MagicByAnyOtherName: Known in the Federal Worlds under the label of "asynchronous quantum field effects" or more commonly "psionics". Individuals with PsychicPowers are rare but hardly unheard of, and as it runs in Jade's family, she's herself able to sense psi fields, which comes in handy in her quest for Builder artifacts. Upon her arrival in Westeros, she's quick to notice two oddities: 1°) the place is saturated with psionic power (with some entities, like the weirwoods, ''radiating'' it) and 2°) most people are blind to it, to the point it is considered common knowledge that "magic is gone from the world".

** Mace Tyrell, while bound to obey King Renly, still has some power as Lord Paramount of the Reach, and thus he can send food and supplies to the Wall. And should the Night's Watch have need for the horses and carts that carried them, then his men would also have to stay there to make sure they're put to good use...

* InexplicableCulturalTies: InUniverse, Sarella notices how the form of the Old Tongue spoken by the Others sounds suspiciously like High Valyrian. She and Jade later figure out from the inscription on Daenerys's Valyrian bracelet that the two languages both stem from the Builders'.

* BreakThemByTalking: Happens to Renly after Jade gives him a pointed speech on what it means to be king. While Jade's intent was only to take him down a peg, it seems to have been a little ''too'' effective, as he appears to lose his confidence and takes to avoid Jade for the remainder of her stay in Highgarden.

* UnwantedRescue: After Jade exfiltrates him and Sansa from King's Landing, Ned tells Jade she should've left him behind to prevent the war and keep Westeros united against the threat of the Others, instead of making herself Joffrey's enemy. While Sansa is completely dismayed that her father would say such things, Jade [[TranquilFury angrily]] points out that while he's technically right and [[ScrewTheRulesImDoingWhatsRight her intervention in blatant violation of the Prime Directive]] is about to land her in a world of trouble, [[CallingTheOldManOut he could at least try to be grateful about it]].

** Renly Baratheon is also reluctant to acknowledge Jade's warning, let alone do something about it, preferring to prioritize his claim to the throne over the rest, which leads Jade to switch tactics and treat directly with the Tyrells instead.


* CueTheFlyingPigs: [[spoiler:Daenerys begs Alleras to help her convince Jade to support her. Alleras very diplomatically tells her that Westeros is a powder keg waiting to go off and that Jade's extensive politicking is one of the few things keeping it stable, so it would take a hell of a lot to get her to change her position and support a returning Targaryen. Cue some rather impressive fireworks in the sky above.]]

** Questioned by Melisandre on her beliefs, Jade quotes Creator/PhilipKDick by mentioning that one of them is that "reality is what doesn't go away when I ''stop'' believing in it".
