Added DiffLines:

''The Princess 99'' is an independently published book that started out online.

The story starts off normal enough: Axel, a farm girl, goes into the city so she can attend Edgewood Academy, a school for wizards (or Crafters as they're called in the book). Then she meet Skye, an alien girl, and things go from weird to nightmarish and crazy from that point on.

In all honesty, it's best described as "What if Harry Potter took place during 1920s New Orleans and aliens were involved?"

The updated print version with reworked spelling and grammar can be purchased for print or download [[http://www.lulu.com/content/paperback-book/the-princess-99/7156834 here]] or the first draft can be read [[http://www.fictionpress.com/s/2630765/1/The_Princess_99_Bird_of_Prey here]] for free.

The first book in the series is ''Bird of Prey''.

!!Tropes used:

* ActionGirl: Skye, Maree-Celee, the Moimettes
* AdaptationExpansion: The print version contains chapters that weren't in the online one, and some extra scenes between other characters as well.
* AdultsAreUseless: Subverted somewhat. Prof. Wilde helps Axel while Prof. Marius ''doesn't''.
* AwesomeAnachronisticApparel: Justified with the Moimettes. Inverted from time to time with Skye.
* {{Animesque}} : The illustrations in the book seem to range from art nouveau to anime-like to nightmare fuel
* LittleMissBadass: Maree-Celee, Brig
* BerserkButton: Actually mentioned and part of the series. Becomes important after [[spoiler: Axel's breakdown]]
* BewareTheNiceOnes: [[spoiler: Flow]]
* BittersweetEnding: It may ''seem'' happy but you have to consider [[spoiler: Axel's lost innocence]]
* BlackEyesOfEvil
* BlessedWithSuck: Pai is kind and sensitive towards other due to his empathy [[spoiler: but his sensitivity also gives him nightmarish seizures]]
* BlondesAreEvil: [[spoiler: Professeur Wilde]]
* BreakTheCutie [[spoiler: Poor, poor Axel...]]

* CharacterTitle
* ChildrenAreInnocent (Hahaha.......''no'')
* CloudCuckooLander : Eulalie. Just...Eulalie.
* CrowningMomentOfAwesome: Flow opens a can of badass in a skirt toward the end and let's not forget [[spoiler: Professeur Colette, the doormat and the shyest character]] beating the stuffing out of Professeur Wilde.

* TheFairFolk: ''The Jealous Dead'' chapter.
* {{Foreshadowing}}: [[spoiler: Axel's dreams and Pai's seizures]]
* GenreDeconstruction: The story is full of stock characters for the genre. A ChoosenOne? Check. DeadpanSnarker for a teacher whose kind of an asshole? Check. A GodModeSue? Check. They go to a WizardingSchool and have {{Mons}}. However, the DeadpanSnarker is only in that condition because [[spoiler: his wife and child died horribly, leaving him an empty shell of a man]]. Skye's nearly-omnipotent powers don't successfully make life easier or make her happier. Not only that, but the ghosts in the school are not...pleasant like in some other works.

* MeaningfulName: All of the member of Birds of Prey are named after, well, birds of prey except for [[spoiler: Axel's codename, ''The Cuckoo'', named after a bird that lays its eggs in the nests of other birds and takes advantage of the unknowing parents. This fits since Axel is an unknowing killer. Though, Flow does admit that this is "unique" at best.]]
* MouthyKid: Brig, Ambrose, Maree, Jacq, Skye, and a good chunk of the students
* NightmareFuel: Where to begin? Let's start with Brig's familiar...[[spoiler: It's a rat. A big rat. ''With a human face'']]
** How about the demon that's [[spoiler: literally pulled out of Axel's body, which is an EldritchAbomination]]
* NoNameGiven Maree's mother and [[spoiler: the identity of Axel's actual parents]], but this may be up for debate in future installments.

* OurTimeTravelIsDifferent: Skye, an alien from a far-off future, is said to be stuck in the 1920s-like past.

* PapaWolf: Docteur Haypenny and his daughter.
** And inverted with Ambrose and his dad.
* ParentalAbandonment (Mentioned by Flow at the very beginning)
* TheReveal [[spoiler: Princess Aurore and the serial killer]]
* ScholarshipStudent
* ShipTease: Skye and Ambrose, though it's debatable if Skye even realizes how he feels.

* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: Skye and Axel. Maree-Celee and Pumpkin.
* TortureTechnician [[spoiler: Flow]]
* TragicMonster
* TwistEnding
* WizardingSchool: Edgewood Academy, Brightwood University, Blackthorne College. The entire book also makes fun of this genre as well.
* MakeMeWannaShout: Axel and any Crafter of Song, really
* WellIntentionedExtremist : Everyone in the Birds of Prey organization has very good intentions, since they only want civil rights for Muggles, ''er'' Nons. Though they try to achieve this in a [[spoiler: {{Tykebomb}} horrifying manner]]
