The premise is simple. Lily Evans Potter is Death's one Day in the Life for the century of Harry's birth. And as all things that have to do with Harry Potter AU fanfiction, things then become are much, much different from what happened in the books.
This fanfiction provides examples of:
- Anthropomorphic Personification: Death of the Endless, as in the source material.
- Alternate Universe: The whole premise means its not JKR's Harry, with the convergence point being Death asking Lily for a favor.
- Noble Demon and Proud Warrior Race: Goblins. They aren't good, but they are honorable. They are also a cannibalistic, eat those you defeat type of people.
- Our Elves Are Different
- Our Vampires Are Different: Think of The World of Darkness with Clans and Bloodlines. There are also half vampire daywalkers similar to Blade and Dhampyr. The half bloods are rare as they are often killed by the vampire clans or do not survive to adulthood for other reasons.
- Screw the Rules, I Make Them!: Dumbledore
- Villain with Good Publicity: Dumbledore
