** After the negative reception to the ''Diary'' series, fans were '''not''' happy that Neiderman was writing a sequel to ''Literature/MySweetAudrina''. It got worse when a preview chapter to that sequel revealed that the author had chosen to RetCon Sylvia's severe disability.

* BaseBreaker: Chris Dollanganger; some fans love him and see him as a romantic character, others find him to be a creep with an OedipusComplex and haven't forgotten him [[spoiler:raping his own sister]].

Added DiffLines:

* UnintentionallySympathetic: Betty, Richard, and Melanie Cutler. In "Twilight's Child," Betty marries into the Culter family when she becomes Philip's wife and she wins everyone over by her naturally docile personality. She noticed problems with Philip in their marriage but rather than accuse Dawn of anything, she blames herself for everything wrong. Having the twins doesn't make things much better since Philip still continues to ignore them in favor of Christie which leads Betty into spoiling the twins to make up for their father not being there and might contribute to her sudden personality change in "Midnight Whispers" where she's cast in an antagonistic light. Richard and Melanie are also easy to sympathize with since their cousins being there makes it all the more painfully obvious how little their father cares for them, especially Melanie. It doesn't help that Christie seems to regard them as nothing more than freaks for their close relationship with each other since they don't really have anyone else they can count on. They're also meant to be antagonists for how poorly they treat their orphaned cousins, especially Richard toward Jefferson, but it's hard to put all the blame on them with the way their parents have been.

** Is Mayfair Cummings a stifled genius desperate for justice against the teacher who took advantage of her? Or is she an EvilGenius dabbling into ManipulativeBastard to act out against her WickedStepmother?

* ContestedSequel: Different people are going to have breaking off points. Most recently though The Diaries series wanting to be a FanonDiscontinuity. Unless it in itself doesn't end up being AllJustADream.
** ''Secret Brother'' is a big example: Most readers hated it for not answering any questions and generally being pointless, but a few found that it was a decent-to-good story if taken as a stand alone novel and not some sort of GrandFinale it was advertised as.

** Some people would also diagnose the way to make the Diaries series better if the two POV characters are delusional as FanonDiscontinuity.

* TheWoobie: If you don't feel sorry for Carrie, you have no soul. Also Cory and Bart, for all his creepy tendencies.

** Bart in particular becomes much more sympathetic if you have experience with mental illness. Bart has very obvious shades of BPD or AVPD, blacks out fairly often and is often terrified by his own intensely violent urges. He uses an extremely misogynistic form of Christianity to justify lashing out at his mother's favoritism of his older brother, and could easily be separated from it if his parents gave a damn. Even though its probably one of the few fictional instances where a character being institutionalized would help rather than harm them, Bart's never helped beyond lukewarm therapy, and grows up with a skewed sense of love, family and intimacy as a result.
