These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
Nightmare Fuel: What the Malwa do to their enemy is not a pretty sight.
Stoic Woobie: Subverted. That is how Belisarius is remembered in legend in the Real Life time line and what he would be in the "link wins" time line. The timeline where the plot takes place has a happier ending.
