Added DiffLines:

* VillainSong: "Welcome to my Web" for the spider queen. Twisted with Patricia; while she has "A Noble's Heart" for herself, it's more about her inner turmoil (though she does conclude [[NeverMyFault that she did nothing wrong]]) and she's playing the villain much more in the songs she shares with the good guys.


Added DiffLines:

* WordOfGay: Vallia/Elanor is blatant in the text, but WordOfGod says Isabel is also a lesbian, possibly with a {{tsundere}} thing for Luka.
