* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: There used to be a radar around Volume 1 before David went into business for himself. As of Volume 2, the radar just gave up. (In Volume 3, it ran away screaming.)
** "I'm invited to one of Dad and Tinsel's pool parties?!!" "Err...no. Not ever."
** Counselor Tinsel is able to push through any initiative she wants.
** The Indigos are the best distraction one could possibly want, for a variety of reasons.
--> "Dude! ''Hot chicks'' want '''''beads!'''''"
** The fantasies of Woods and Miss Muliebral in Prelude's garden story arc. Robust companionship indeed!
--> "Surely there must be some way I can repay you!" "Yeah hold on, I've got a list".
** Volume 3 features a strip joint as a setting. Though that might be taking [[RefugeInAudacity a different approach to things.]]
*** Also, the members of the Neon Knives gang, particularly Vox, are prone to incredibly bad language.

Added DiffLines:

* ElectiveMonarchy: In Andurana the position of Viscount is popularly elected rather than hereditary or appointed like in real life. The history also notes a period in the city-state's history where it was ruled by a king whose title was passed among the "High Houses" prior to the democratic revolution.
