Added DiffLines:

* GreyAndGrayMorality: A work can try to be neutral in the conflict it presents, and acknowledge that BothSidesHaveAPoint. That won't stop fans from simplifying things and acting like one side is pure good while the other is pure evil.

Do not confuse this with an AlternativeCharacterInterpretation. A Misaimed Fandom fails to understand the author's intention for a character, no matter how {{Anvilicious}} it may have been; an AlternativeCharacterInterpretation understands the intended or default interpretation, but deliberately subverts it. Another related trope is RootingForTheEmpire, when you root for the villain without [[DracoInLeatherPants misinterpreting them as a good guy]].

Only... it [[GoneHorriblyWrong doesn't quite work like that]]. Instead of seeing a loathsome, hateful figure, the audience sees a [[TheWoobie Woobie]] who only is the way he is because of his [[WellDoneSonGuy daddy issues]], and feel sorry for him instead of hating him... or even [[DracoInLeatherPants find him cute]]. They take the author's painstaking [[PoesLaw satire at face value]]. The CrapsackWorld the writer has created is somewhere they think is pretty awesome. They have, in the writer's view, missed the point: ignoring the subtext that the writer had thought was obvious in favor of the ''text'' -- and they really like the text.
