Added DiffLines:

* ForbiddenFruit: Used as part of an obfuscation by Paige's coven. They don't ''forbid'' the Menarche Rite, but they disapprove of it and make it clear that any witch who wants to do it for her daughter isn't getting any help from the coven. The second layer of defense, though, is that the Rite that the Coven witches know is a [[{{Nerf}} nerfed]] version of the full-power rite. The objective of this is to keep the local witches weak, and thus encourage everyone to keep their heads down.

Added DiffLines:

* SuicidalPacifism: The elders in Paige's coven are so frightened of the idea that a member of the coven might use magic to hurt someone, they outlaw any spells that would be useful for self defense, even non-violent ones like one that magically keeps a door locked under the grounds that it could be used to imprison someone. It's implied that the only reason they're still alive is because the rest of the supernatural community considers them such a joke that they're completely ignored.


* IJustWantToBeSpecial: In ''Stolen'', [[spoiler:Sondra Bauer injects herself with Elena's saliva to turn herself into a werewolf.]]

* IJustWantToBeSpecial: In ''Stolen'', [[spoiler:Sondra Bauer injects herself with Elena's saliva to turn herself into a werewolf. Unfortunately, she didn't listen to Elena's warnings ''at all'' and flies into an UnstoppableRage, during which she murders one of her friends. [[NeverMyFault Naturally, she blames it all on Elena]]. ]]

Added DiffLines:

* HybridPower: A witch or sorcerer who's got ancestry from some other supernatural entity tends to be a more powerful spellcaster than one who's got a human for their other parent, even if they can't access any other supernatural abilities from that side of their lineage.

Added DiffLines:

* ElderlyBlueHairedLady: It's a cliche of Paige's coven in ''Dime Store Magic''. Paige laments that there are far too many members of the coven that conform to said stereotype.

Added DiffLines:

** Savannah, half-witch, half-sorcerer.

Added DiffLines:

* FantasticRomance: Werewolves don't consciously choose who they take as a lifemate; the inner wolf does, and the werewolf just has to go along. On the other hand, the werewolf's non-wolf partner ''has'' a choice; at one point it's made clear that while Karl is driven to near-MateOrDie madness by being away from Hope, he'll go away if she tells him to.

* ArbitraryScepticism: In ''Personal Demon'' the main character, who is an empathic half-demon, whose mentor is a werewolf and is currently working for a sorceror doesn't believe in goblins. Note however that the race of the guy who she says looks and acts like a goblin would if they existed is never specified. He might be another type of half-demon of which there are many.

Added DiffLines:

** Played with. Clay has a genius-level IQ (and the doctorate in anthropology to prove it. . . at the bottom of his sock drawer) and certainly knows how to blend in with humans. He just genuinely doesn't see the point 90% of the time, and typically only does so for Elena's sake. As he puts it, he absolutely ''has'' social skills, he just ''chooses'' not to use them most of the time.


* AbsurdlyYouthfulMother: Paige adopts 13-year-old Savannah when she's 23 or so. This works out surprisingly well, as Paige is close enough in age to remember pulling exactly the same crap Savannah was pulling, and treats her with a light rein.
