The [[AudienceReactions reaction from the audience]] that we suspect the author intended. We can't really know whether it was intended. It may have been, or it may have been that the author was aiming for something completely different and just missed. We can occasionally get a [[WordOfGod quote in an interview]] confirming, or at least claiming, that a specific audience reaction was intended, but usually this term is only useful for fans talking to fans.

To provide a concrete example, normally, the [[TheScrappy audience being annoyed by a character]] is unintended by the author. But sometimes, because writers want to achieve EmotionalTorque, they create a character who hits known markers for a hated character, in order to (pick one):

# Not hurt what [[AssholeVictim sympathy the audience may have with his killer,]]
# Make his [[HeelFaceTurn eventual redemption]] feel more complete,
# Make it more obvious to the audience why other characters dislike him,

As a general rule, only refer to something as an Intended Audience Reaction on a work's main page (as opposed to its YMMV page) if it is backed up by WordOfGod (preferably with a citation).
