Tropes featured in her other works include:

  • All Trolls Are Different: In Goblin Moon and The Gnome's Engine.
  • Advertisement:
  • Alternative Calendar: The nations of Euterpe in Goblin Moon use a calendar of nine forty-day "seasons", rather than months. The actual solar year is a bit longer than that, so celebratory "intercalary days" round it out every three seasons.
  • Because Destiny Says So: Some of the characters in The Queen's Necklace think so.
  • Brotherhood of Funny Hats: In Goblin Moon, the Glassblowers guild has an offshoot of scholars and wearers of goofy ceremonial robes, paralleling what the Real Life Freemasons are like.
  • Duel to the Death: In The Queen's Necklace, Wil is readying himself for a duel when the novel opens.
  • Fairy Godmother: Played with in Goblin Moon, in which the Duchess (a three-quarter fairy Uneven Hybrid) was supposed to become Elsie's godmother, but arrived so late to the christening ceremony that a substitute was chosen. Outraged at this perceived insult, she plotted revenge for years by pretending to consider Elsie her "goddaughter" nevertheless, but scheming in secret to lead her to a terrible fate.

  • Fantasy Counterpart Culture: Goblin Moon and The Gnome's Engine are set in 'Euterpe', which is a close fit to 18th century Europe, and incorporates such parallel nationalities as 'Spagnards', 'Imbrians', and 'Nordics'.
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners: Blaise Trefallon and Wilrowan Blackheart of The Queen's Necklace.
  • Latex Perfection: In a non-facial example, Lord Vodni from Goblin Moon has a grotesque bird-like claw for a hand, which he conceals with some kind of artificial-skin glove. Until he peels it bare in a rage, Sera notices nothing unusual about his hands, even though it has talons long and sharp enough for combat.
  • Our Gnomes Are Weirder: In Goblin Moon and The Gnome's Engine.
  • Phantasy Spelling: Played with in Goblin Moon, where "fairy" is the name of the race, while "Fee" and "Farisee" are apparently two different nationalities within that race.
