This fic provides examples of:

  • Adaptation Expansion: In canon the only things known about Pelter/Stefanie Lamana are her names and that she died during the Leviathan fight. Here she survives, becomes a recurring character, and joins Taylor and Rachelís team.
  • Adaptation Name Change: In this fic Taylor goes by Arachne instead of Skitter.
  • Adaptational Badass: In canon Charlotte and Greg Veder were normal humans here they are parahumans the former being a trump and the latter being a tinker.

  • Battle Couple:
    • Arachne and Bitch.
    • Parian and Flechette like canon.

  • Defecting for Love: Bitch leaves the Undersiders to be with Arachne.
  • Idealized Sex: Subverted; when Taylor and Rachel have sex for the first time it is described as having been awkward and strange. This is to be expected since Taylor was a virgin and Rachel only had sex once before.

  • The Immodest Orgasm: After Taylor and Rachel are done having sex for the first time Taylor mentions that they made a lot of noise.
  • Spared By Adaptation: In canon Pelter/Stefanie dies during the Endbringer fight, here she lives and becomes a recurring character.
  • Super Empowering: After triggering Charlotte/Amp can do this.
  • Their First Time: Taylor and Rachel in Bark 2.4.
  • Title Drop: Wolf Spider gets used in Rabid 4-A as a ship name for Arachne and Bitch when itís found out they're in a relationship.
