This series provides examples of:
* AwLookTheyReallyDoLoveEachOther: The HoYay between the heroes isn't as blatant as other BoysLove series, but that just makes the sweet moments all the sweeter. [[spoiler:Like Florian (and Ray, but it's not quite as poignant when he does it) willing to give his life for Ray. And Ray increasing Florian's debt so that he can never leave him.]]

* TheWoobie: Eleonora is pretty batshit. But you would be too if, as a child, [[spoiler:your mother was killed by your father, then your maternal uncle showed up and killed your father in front of you - and oh yeah, your maternal uncle is your real father. Uncle/father then molests you, and keeps you locked up with your dead mother.]] Whew.

Added DiffLines:

* MisplacedSorrow: Played with. Every time Ray is concerned for Florian's safety, no matter how serious he gets, he turns it into a joke along the lines of "Look at how much you owe me, I'd never get that back if you died..." It becomes obvious that it is a cover-up for his feelings, and he never brings up the debt when he's alone when he's worried about Florian.
