* EvilIsNotAToy: More than a few of the dark happenings in Wellesley are self-inflicted. Special mention goes to the coven who are clearly in over their hards when it comes to magic.

* VengefulGhost: Her name is Claire, and she has her own book.

* WitchWithACapitalB: A whole coven full of them. Hillary, Jill and Vanessa.

Added DiffLines:

* LovecraftCountry: Massachusetts is weird. New Hampshire seems worse.

Added DiffLines:

* OuijaBoard: It is never a good idea to use one, but if you must, for the love of God close the session.

Added DiffLines:

* CrapsackWorld: Crapsack Town. Wellesley seems like a nice Boston suburb filled with type A personalities, but you can't swing a wine bottle without hitting someone with supernatural troubles.
* CreepyChild: Lilith. Also several ghosts (or entities pretending to just be ghosts).


Added DiffLines:

* DemonicPossession: Crops up from time-to-time, especially when Liz tags along with Biddy for interviews.
* DontGoInTheWoods: The woods around Wellesley have their fair share of creepers, but you REALLY don't want to go into the woods near Lake Winnipesaukee.


Added DiffLines:

* HollywoodExorcism: Averted so far. We haven't actually seen an exorcism, but the steps needed before the Catholic Church will even consider such extreme measures have been discussed.


Added DiffLines:

* MirrorMonster: The one and only Bloody Mary pops up in episode 34: Third Times a Charm.


Added DiffLines:

* SpookySeance: One or two. Most notably The Dark Thing.


* Poltergeist: One pops up in Episode 5: The Family Home. They are clearly the result of repressed emotions. Jenn developed one after nearly being killed by a home invader. There are hints that it might be something darker.

* Defictionalization: You can visit Liz's blog via the link above.

Added DiffLines:

* AdultFear: Not only are ghosts and other supernatural beings real, but they are only too happy to target children.


Added DiffLines:

* CowardlyLion: Liz wants to hear stories about ghosts, not interact with them herself. This doesn't stop her from getting more involved later.


Added DiffLines:

* HorrifyingTheHorror: Inevitable given the amount of weirdness that inhabits Wellesley. [[spoiler:The half-ass demon the coven sends after Liz ends up being more scared of her than she's scared of it.]]


Added DiffLines:

* LovableCoward: Liz's husband Chris is terrified of ghosts, but they clearly love one another and he never demands she stop her blog.


Added DiffLines:

* ThingsThatGoBumpInTheNight: Usually shows up as an early sign of hauntings.


* Supernatural-ProofFather: Men are often slower on the uptake than women. Probably because many of the people Liz interviews are housewives who spend more time at home. Liz's own husband Chris probably wishes he was this, since he is terrified of ghost stories. Fortunately he doesn't turn into this trope when their own home gets invaded.
