Notes Edit

  • Each chapter title mirror's the first few words of the first chapter 25 the chapter title "Iris made Fitz come..."
  • The Blue Angel's chapters contains instances of metafiction. The chapters which seem to take place within the Obverse reference fictional events as fiction and ask questions about the link between "reality" and "fiction" within its own fictional universe.
  • There are also questions (and/or jokes) about Iris Wildthyme's status as a metafictional character.
  • The Blue Angel has been adapted into a script (The Blue Angel Adapted by Piers Britton) for use in a university course.
