- Most Fanfic Writers Are Girls: Contrary to what many at first believed, the writer is a pegasister.
- He Also Did: Other notable works are the Inside Out fanfic Intercom and another MLP fanfic, Solipsism.
- Old Shame: The author admitted that the fic is this for her and years later decided to do a Continuity Reboot of it, stating she'll consider said reboot to be the canon for the sequel. The original version was simply meant as a personal test to see how gory she could write.
- Real Life Writes the Plot:
- The entire fic got started because of a YouTube comment. The entirety of the comment, however, has not yet been revealed, as it contains an implication that could be considered a spoiler, but it's clear that the whole thing got started with the idea of Twilight turning her friends into books.
- The opposing, Split Personality-like aspect of Twilight and her conscience was inspired by a scene in the MLP episode Lesson Zero.
- Disturbingly, a majority of the torture methods (especially done to Fluttershy) actually exist in Real Life (see above Wayback link).
- As is revealed later, Twilight's plan to eradicate disharmony by murdering all disharmonious life is based off of the Nazi's and the Holocaust.
- What Could Have Been: The entire fanfic was originally going to be a short one-shot, basically going with the whole thing of "Twilight turning her friends into books". Of course, it obviously expanded far, far beyond that.
