- Author's Saving Throw: One stands out for most NSL Deconstruction Fics is that in those stories, the Louds took their superstition too far. But the Louds here except Lynn actually knew Lincoln was lying all along and his punishment outweighs his crime.
- Foil: The Sister Fight Protocol in the another extremely popular Loud House fanfic Syngenesophobia. In both Stories the protocol failed to take Lincoln into account because they wanted to keep him out of conflicts that he wouldn't normally be a part of. In Syngenesophobia the protocol is flawed because it was something recently developed and had only ever been implemented one time. In this fanfiction, the protocol is flawed because it's outdated and only took for the five eldest Loud children into account.
- It's the Same, So It Sucks: A common criticism towards NSL Deconstruction Fics in general, specifically with the Louds yet again feeling awful for their actions, and Lincoln forgiving his family in the end
- "Seinfeld" Is Unfunny: It received flak for being another "No Such Luck" fanfic as soon as the first chapter was posted. Thankfully, people began to warm up to it after seeing that it was different from most NSL fics (In that the Louds in this story except Lynn are aware of Lincoln's lies and are punishing him for it).
YMMV / No Such Luck, No Such Love
