  • Fan-Preferred Couple: In the earlier chapters, a number of readers suggested the possibility of Oliver/Kara or Tommy/Kara, despite Oliver already being slated to be either with Laurel or Nyssa, while Kara remained single. The author permanently sunk former by reiterating that none of the three leads (Oliver, Barry, and Kara) would be paired with each other, and sunk the latter by informing readers that, like Kara, Tommy wasn't getting paired with anyone for plot reasons. They later went back on their word by pairing Tommy with Isabel, though they did clarify it was for the sake of the plot than any genuine pleasure in the pairing itself.

  • Boring Invincible Hero: Kara has shades of this—her Combo Platter Powers would make her one of the most dangerous characters in the cast as it is, but her Boxing Lessons for Superman and Kryptonite-Proof Suit make her practically unbeatable. The only antagonists to give her serious trouble are Grodd and Astra, and the latter only because Kara decided to not use her Kryptonite sword as a mark of respect for her Worthy Opponent.
  • Take That, Scrappy!:
    • The author does not like Felicity Smoak, and even admits as much in the first part of the prologue.
      • In the unaltered timeline from where Eobard comes from, Felicity was a Green Arrow stalker that had convinced herself that Oliver was her soulmate and outed his secret identity to the public right before she was jailed after he rejected her.
      • In the current timeline, she's in jail for creating the hacktivist supervirus that her college boyfriend took the blame for in canon. Said boyfriend is also in jail for using it to clear out his student loans.

    • Andy Diggle and the Darhks (sans Nora) are both killed in Part IV of the prologue. Andy's death isn't even mentioned, just inferred by readers.
