This fanfic provides examples of:

  • Bizarre Alien Biology: While changelings have many biological similarities to humans, their is a noticeably difference. Changelings are sterile by nature, their semen a noticeable violet color. Strickler explains to Barbara as a harmless genetic condition brought on by a manganese based reaction.
  • Broken Angel: It turns out that Strickler once had wings. Because Gunmar foresaw Strickler potentially betraying him, he had them ripped off.
  • Everyone Can See It: Vendel could tell that Strickler’s feelings for Barbara are genuine by smelling the pheromones he emits.
  • Evil Is Sterile: It is mentioned that changelings - by design as hybrid creatures not unlike mules - are sterile. Because of this, Strickler comes to see his students like his own children.
  • Involuntary Shapeshifter: In Cold Skin, Strickler accidentally shifted into his true form while he was having sex with Barbara.

  • Reality Ensues: Strickler visits Angor Rot in the sewers, naturally the smell would cling to him afterward.
  • Romance Arc: The Strawberry Shortcake Chronicles is all about exploring the relationship between Strickler and Barbara.
  • Unusual Euphemism:
    A shadow caught her eyes, and she hesitated. "It's been a while," she frowned up at him. "You know..since I've made strawberry shortcake."
    "That's alright," he smiled, leaning forward to her ear. "You're not alone. I'll be gentle," he whispered. He placed a kiss upon her cheek, then another, and another, and another before the door clicked behind them.
  • You Did Everything You Could: In Cold Skin, Barbara tells Strickler that she lost a patient; an abuse victim who’s husband stabbed her vital organs with a broken spoon. While she acknowledges that as a doctor this will happen, she can’t help but empathize with the patient’s twelve-year-old daughter and picturing her son in the same situation.
