Is Nightmare Fuel in hindsight a thing? On the first read it\'s not so bad but upon the reread it\'s terrifying? The example I\'m thinking of is from chapter five of Weight of the World, specifically Ozpin\'s musings about how it would be a shame if the twins did not survive to meet their full potential. On the first read, it seems unintentionally ominous, but on the reread, it may be foreshadowing for Ozpin\'s true nature. In other words, knowledge the reader gets later makes this scene terrifying. Does that count as Nightmare Fuel for that chapter?

I think it would go on the Fridge Horror page, at least for now. If Ozpin is confirmed to be evil (or at least extreme) and gains undeniably malicious intentions towards the twins, then we can reconsider putting that scene in Nightmare Fuel. Considering his view on the value of individual lives, we should wait and see if he does anything.

In hindsight it is too speculative even for Fridge Horror. I am going to leave it off until something happens (if it ever does).

Type the word in the image. This goes away if you get known.

The next one might be easier to see.

How well does it match the trope?
