* BerserkerTears: Stella cries in rage after [[spoiler:Poe dies]].



* BlackDudeDiesFirst: [[spoiler:Poe is Latino, and the only character to die.]]



* DisappearedDad: Will's father abandoned him when he was a baby, because [[{{Jerkass}} having a child with serious medical problems wasn't part of his plan]], according to Will.



* GayBestFriend: Poe is this to Stella.

to:

* GayBestFriend: Poe is this to Stella. He has a boyfriend, but [[ButNotTooGay they're never seen together]] (the guy [[TheGhost doesn't even appear]]), unlike Stella with Will. Basically his entire role is him being a funny gay guy (at least until [[spoiler:[[BuryYourGays he dies]]]]).



** UptightLovesWild: Though she's not impressed with his antics at first.



* SurvivorsGuilt: Stella expresses this over her sister's death, since she's the one with a serious disease which will probably kill her eventually. Her sister, though healthy, died in a cliff-diving accident. Stella very strictly abides by her treatments since, saying her parents can't lose another child (at least delaying it as long as is possible) and that she should have died rather than her sister.



* UltimateJobSecurity: {{Downplayed}} with Nurse Barb. While she's good at her job and does try her best to take care of Stella, there's still the fact that she [[spoiler: deliberately broke the rules causing the death of two other teens with CF a while back, as she admitted to Will later on in the movie. For some reason, she still obviously has her job to this day, and we don't find out if there were any lawsuits involved or if she got into major trouble from the incident.]]

* UptightLovesWild: Stella, who strictly abides by her prescribed medical treatments, feeling a duty to her family, eventually falls for Will (who often flouts them, in spite of his mom's worry), although after having him take better care of himself.

* ControlFreak: Stella. Justified, as she craves control over her life and being responsible helps keep her alive.
* CoveredWithScars: Both the leads are, from past surgeries.
* CryingWolf: Poe frequently presses his call button as a prank. [[spoiler:When he actually needs it, the nurse doesn't hurry to him, and he dies.]]
* DangerThinIce: [[spoiler:Stella falls through the ice while she and Will are arguing.]]
* DidNotGetTheGirl: [[spoiler:Though they affirm their love, Will leaves Stella in the end, and due to their illnesses they're not even able to physically share their love except for a brief KissOfLife.]]

* HopeSpot: [[spoiler:Right after Poe talks about getting back together with his ex and letting love into his life, he dies.]]
* IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy: [[spoiler:Will tells Stella in the end about the importance of letting go of what you love, and that he doesn't want to hurt her by making her watch him die or accidentally infecting her.]]
* KissOfLife: [[spoiler:Will administers this to Stella after she falls through ice, and it works.]] Subverted in that the action is less romantic than it is full of dire consequences with the risk of infection.
* MeaningfulEcho: Stella repeats Will's words about living life to the fullest to convince him to go see the lights with her.



* MoodWhiplash: Stella, Will and Poe have a great dinner together with all their friends after Stella sets up a game for Will. [[spoiler:Poe dies shortly after.]]

* OppositesAttract: Strait-laced rule-abiding Stella is attracted to the rebellious, risk-taking Will.
** UptightLovesWild: Though she's not impressed with his antics at first.
* RecycledINSPACE: It's been compared a lot to Film/TheFaultInOurStars, but with cystic fibrosis instead of cancer. [[spoiler:It's just as poignant, too.]]

* BittersweetEnding: [[spoiler: While the film does end with Will creating a notebook of his drawings for Stella and setting up a light display for her, and Stella sharing a heartwarming blog with the audience telling them to embrace their loved ones as much as they can, there's still the fact that Poe's dead, Will is going to die eventually, and the film leaves Stella's future ambiguous. In fact, the bitterness seems to outweigh the happiness, which is why it can still be seen as a DownerEnding, but it's still a rather heartwarming note to end on.]]
