''[[https://dischan.co/downloads/#junipersknot Juniper's Knot]]'' is a short KineticNovel developed by dischan in UsefulNotes/RenPy.
UsefulNotes/RenPy, set around [[https://lemmasoft.renai.us/forums/viewtopic.php?p=193114#p193114 "20s/30s- "Jazz Age", but the fiend's stuck in a 15th and 16th C mindset and you never see any of the "modern" setting aside from the boy (and the UI, I suppose)"]]

The title, [[https://web.archive.org/web/20120504042728/http://dischan.org/forum/viewforum.php?c=1&f=11&t=1#jump8 as explained by the creator]]:

--> "Juniper" is representative of [[spoiler:"chastity", as well as the name of a saint known famously for their patience]]. That it is a "knot" of "Juniper" is to say that it is [[spoiler:a binding/predicament of patience/chastity- forced. It ties in to the fiend's situation, who is by no means chaste or patient but has been for ages due to her "curse"]]. Hence the stylization of the "O" of "knot" in title cards, and/or the presence of the large "O" on the main menu and elsewhere. It represents [[spoiler:the circle she is trapped inside of. Long story short]], "Juniper's Knot" is a way to tell the premise of the game without being direct. "Juniper" has other neat symbolic meanings; and so other interpretations can still be found.

Added DiffLines:

* FateWorseThanDeath: Being stuck in the circle for centuries without escape and only the pain of crossing it as her company, suffice to say being trapped was a horrid experience for the fiend.


Added DiffLines:

* WalkingWasteland: Fiends apparently drain the life out of the environment around them, leaving the soil beneath them dry and infertile.


* MagicallyBindingContract: There is a magical effect when the boy agrees to a '''deal''' with the Fiend that echoes off the walls of the room. [[spoiler:Interestingly, the only such deals are to stay awhile in exchange for her cooking chestnuts; his freeing her he does without any supernatural binding.]]

* AssholeVictim: [[spoiler:After they raped and killed her OnlyFriend (before The Boy), The Fiend reacted by turning ''a whole town'' into these.]]

Added DiffLines:

* EquivalentExchange: The rule of [[spoiler:the spell binding the fiend]] is of this type: [[spoiler:a life for a life.]]

Added DiffLines:

* PowerOfTrust: The boy invokes this when [[spoiler:planting the olive tree in the circle]], because even if he doesn't trust the fiend to [[spoiler:exchange lives with the tree instead of him]], ''checking'' would ruin her chances of being trustworthy.
