Here are the tropes that I listed on the TV Tropes article page for Raven Child's The Smurfette Village fanfiction series.

Action Dress Rip: Toughette does this to Valvette's borrowed blue dress when she and a few other female Smurfs escape from the trolls that captured them.

Afraid of Needles: Toughette has a fear of needles.

Almost Kiss: Hefty and Toughette in the second story were almost ready to share a kiss when they were interrupted by the sound of Brainy heaving.

And This Is for...: Hefty and Toughette trash Gargamel's hovel after the Smurfs were hit with "The Blue Plague", saying "This is for all the Smurf and Smurfette lives you destroyed." Toughette also torches Azrael's bed, saying "This goes for you too, Azrael."

Bigger Bad: Asmodey plays a bigger role than Gargamel does in the third story as he goes after the remaining Smurfs.

Child Mage: Like Baby Smurf in the cartoon show, Babette is also born with magical powers, and eventually grows up to become Sorcerette.

Cosmic Retcon: The events of the fourth story retcon The Smurfs' ninth season (the time-traveling episodes) out of existence, setting up the stage for the events in the story series proper.

Crystal Prison: Hefty and Toughette are trapped in one during the events of the third story.

Distaff Counterpart
The Smurfettes, several of whom are distinct counterparts of several male Smurfs.
Mama Smurf —> Papa Smurf
Toughette —> Hefty
Brainette —> Brainy
Klutzette —> Clumsy
Gingerette —> Greedy
Prankette —> Jokey
Melody —> Harmony
Valvette —> Vanity
Grumpette —> Grouchy
Cowgirl —> Farmer, with elements of Wooly
Sewette —> Tailor
Tattlerette —> Reporter
Nursette —> Doctor
Babette —> Baby
Gargamel and Azrael have one in the evil witch Gloria and her cat Phoebe before their Heel-Face Turn.

Doomed Hometown: First the Smurfette Village, then later the Smurf Village.

Get Out: Handy to his fellow Smurfs when he sees them cleaning up Hefty's house during the time that they thought Hefty was gone for good.

Happy Ending Override: The Smurfettes in "Return To The Smurfette Village" escape the destruction of their village only to move in with the Smurfs in their village, and everyone seems to be headed for a Happily Ever After ending. Come "How Things Smurf", though, only ten Smurfs manage to escape the destruction of the Smurf Village, and that's just at the start of the flashback to How They Got There.

Heel-Face Turn: Gloria and Phoebe.

How We Got Here: The third story uses the Smurfs meeting together in the present day as a Framing Device for how they got from the Smurf Forest to where they are now.

Lady Land: The Smurfette Village is populated mainly by female Smurfs, but otherwise treat their male Smurf counterparts with respect and kindness, particularly their first visitor Hefty.

Motor Mouth: Gossipette.

One-Gender Race: Averted in this series, as it explains how male and female Smurfs were first created in the beginning.

Separated by the Wall: The Smurfs outside the magic force field erected by Papa Smurf in the third story talk to the few Smurfs inside who are barely alive to find out what had happened.

Some Kind of Force Field: A magical invisible force field is cast over the entire village after The Plague first struck and killed the Smurfs and Smurfettes in it, keeping out Hefty, Toughette, Brainy, Brainette, Baby, Babette, and the Smurflings so that they would not be infected.

Synthetic Plague: A plague known as "The Blucrotidus Disease" (or "The Blue Plague") was manufactured by either Gargamel or the new villain Asmodeus to wipe out all the Smurfs and Smurfettes at once, although because Papa Smurf had put up a magical force field to keep the plague from spreading, several Smurfs were spared this fate and would go on to build a whole new Smurf Village elsewhere.

Throw the Book at Them: Brainette does this to Brainy in the second story when she becomes rather irritated with his attitude towards her.

Sudden Sequel Death Syndrome: "How Things Smurf" has the majority of Smurfs and Smurfettes killed off right from the point where the flashback sequence starts.
