* UsefulNotes/AmericanAccents: Miss Tairee, the librarian, has a Southern accent. It's usually not noticeable - see below.


* LampshadeHanging: A lot of times, a character will be in a conversation with two people at once, talking about two entirely different things; something that [[CaptainObvious doesn't happen in real life]] but is completely common in the roleplay. This will often be justified by writing that the character turned to look at the other person before they change the subject. Legion takes notice of this.
