* AnachronismStew: Wynn claims to lived in the Hever Castle in the 1100s during one of her past lives. Hever Castle wasn't built until 1270.



* TheGloriousWarOfSisterlyRivalry: Wynne and Oonagh, with Wynne as the pretty one and Oonagh as the smart one. (Judging from Wynne's track record with men and Oonagh's predicament as a Corrigan, this probably would have gone into CainAndAbel territory if the story was finished.)

** In one of her past lives, Wynne was a noblewoman named Isabeau de Hever who had a nasty older sister, Margaret, who was horribly jealous of her beauty and true love.


* HistoricalHeroUpgrade: Quite a few. For example, Kathryn Howard, a past life of the heroine, was actually a tragic young noblewoman who committed adultery because her heart could not choose between her two lovers. Also, [[Creator/Lord Byron]] apparently was a tragic, romantic hero.

* AwesomeMcCoolname -- A bit justified since the main characters are fairies. (Wynne is pronounced "Win" and the "gh" is silent in Oonagh, and "beansidhe" is the Gaelic way of spelling "banshee".)

* OurFairiesAreDifferent: The seven sisters all are different types of faeries from all over the western world. Some are portrayed rather close to their mythological counterparts, like Oonagh, the corrigan, others, like Wynne, the leanan sidhe... [[CuteMonsterGirl not so much]]. They're also all a SuperiorSpecies.

The plot revolves around the 7 members of the titular band, all of whom are half fairy/half river god/half sisters, and their adventures as they attempt to weaken the barrier separating the human "Waking World" and the supernatural realms of the Faerie and their lives as famous musicians/actresses/models. Unfortunately, since the story didn't have a chance to get going, the story as it is written focuses on the girls' trip to a [[TheRenaissance Renaissance]]-themed restaurant after a concert and Wynne recalling her numerous (and often tragic) past lives.

* MyNaymeIs -- Wynne was Catherine Howard in one of her past lives. However, she insists that it's actually spelled "Kathryn".



* PsmithPsyndrome -- See MyNaymeIs above; Wynne apparently communicates the spelling by speech alone, and Psmith is mentioned in the sporking linked below.



** Cannot be emphasized enough: ''she thinks the tilde is the super-cute version of the hyphen.''

The story, [[SoBadItsGood sadly]], is incomplete, and will probably stay that way due to it and its author's [[SmallNameBigEgo reputation]] being well known among MarySue [[CausticCritic sporkers]].



** FridgeBrilliance: Since Catherine Howard was nigh-illiterate, this could be a case of an [[InheritedIlliteracyTitle Inherited Illiteracy Name]].
