This fanfic contains examples of:

  • Alternate Continuity/Universe Fic: Considering that it takes place after Freedom Planet but before Freedom Planet 2 and creates events that prevent Freedom Planet 2 from properly happening, it falls into this category.
  • Bloodier and Gorier: Though the original Freedom Planet game wasn't entirely family-friendly itself, this story takes it a step up at the end of its first chapter with Lilac's bloody injury.
  • Cry into Chest: At the end of Chapter 3, Milla sobs into Carol's in the aftermath of an argument between the two.
  • Darker and Edgier: In comparison to the source material, the story takes a more realistic and depressing approach. It deals with topics like brain damage, loss of identity, motor function failure and the effects this can have on the victim and those around them.

  • Exactly What It Says on the Tin: The story is about Lilac, bringer of Freedom, losing her memories. Go figure.

  • "I Can't Look!": Carol chooses to turn Lilac back over after bearing witness to her injury for the first time.
