The fanfic can be read on and Archive of Our Own.

This fanfic provides examples of:

  • Big Brother Instinct: Having a younger sister himself, Casey has zero tolerance for ass-grabbing, having beaten up Johnny Smith (also known as "Johnny the Perv") every time he catches him trying it (especially on April).

  • Cassandra Truth: When Chloe accidentally kisses Casey Jone’s cheek thinking he was Adrien, Nino was holding Donatello’s camera, capturing all of it. He tells her that the footage has already uploaded to his computer and he was already emailing it to her entire class. When she demands to know where he lives to that she can sue him properly, Casey Jones tells her where Donatello lives knowing that she won’t believe him.
  • Celebrity Paradox: April once briefly refers to Hun as "wannabe Bruce Lee." Curious, considering he was meant to be a Bruce Lee Clone by design.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: Chat Noir do this on Rahzar, Xever and Rocksteady with ease, after he find out the Ninja Turtles Enemies are Mutants and not akumatized Villains (Thus are not innocent people Brainwashed and Crazy) by April.
  • Demoted to Dragon: At an earlier point in time, Shredder found and strong-armed Hawk Moth into his services.

  • Empowered Badass Normal: With Hawk Moth’s powers, Shredder’s burns have now fully healed and is bestowed lighting powers.
  • Enemy Mine: Donatello and Casey momentarily put their animosity aside when they see April talking with Adrien.
    "That boy that April is talking to is Adrien Agreste. He's a top fashion model in Paris who's father also creates one of the top fashion lines in the world." There was a slight pause while Casey registered what Donnie had just said. To Donatello, it seemed to take forever so he decided to stream line it for the boy. "Our April is talking to a famous rich fashion model from the city of Love."
  • Everyone Can See It: Alya has known April, Casey and Donatello (through a speaker and camera) for only a few hours and she quickly recognized a Love Triangle going on.
  • Flirtatious Smack on the Ass: Johnny Smith (also known as "Johnny the Perv") is a student at April and Casey’s school infamous for doing this. He has done it before with April (getting his tooth kicked out by her for his troubles), has been beaten up by Casey for doing it due to his Big Brother Instinct and got a severe Death Glare from Adrien when he tried something with Marinette.

  • French Jerk: Chloe's first appearance has her referring to April and Casey as "nasty dumb Americans."
  • Gossipy Hens: Most of the conversations between Alya, Marinette and April usually pertain to boys and love-triangles.
  • Insult Backfire: Casey's biggest trick when arguing with Chloe is when he sarcastically responds to her insults as though they were compliments.
    In the middle of a rant about how Casey probably got his clothes from a dumpster which he replied to, "Yes, but it was from a fairly upscale neighborhood"...
  • Mad Science Fair: The Krang Science Expo is a convention displaying technology left behind by the Krang after their failed invasion of New York.
  • O.O.C. Is Serious Business: When he finds out that Shredder has involved himself with miraculouses, Splinter states that stealth is a secondary concern to protecting the ladybug and cat miraculouses. This is important because he has always made it a point to say that stealth is a ninja’s first priority above all else.
  • The Shut-In: Justified. Since he is, you know, a humanoid turtle mutant, Donatello has to attend the Science Expo through the use of a live-broadcasting camera with the explanation that he is a home-schooled shut-in with an overly-controlling parent.
  • Suddenly Bilingual:
    • Casey Jones is able to speak fluent French because his Great-Grandmother Jones was French. Donatello learned to speak fluent French three days prior, but this is Donatello we are talking about.
    • The Miraculous Ladybug cast are able to speak English due to intensive studying required for their trip to New York. Adrien even admits that he is fluent in not just French, English and Chinese, but also Japanese, Swedish and German.
  • Willfully Weak: When April clarifies that the American foes are mutants and not akumatized villains (thus are not innocent people Brainwashed and Crazy), Chat Noir revealed that he was holding back and utterly curb-stomps Rahzar, Xever and Rocksteady shortly after.
  • Would Hurt a Child: When Hun and the Purple Dragons encounter April with Adrien, Alya and Marinette...
    Hun: Take them and make sure to hurt Ms. O’Neil in as many different ways you can think of.
