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.
Unintentionally Sympathetic: So, Harry Beaton, you've been denied both the opportunity to go off and seek your fortune elsewhere and the affections of the woman you love and, as a result, you're totally miserable in Brigadoon? Well, that's just too damn bad, because the town has been subject to a "miracle" (which you never requested or agreed to) that requires that no villager ever leave or everyone will die. You must therefore be stopped from ever leaving this place that you despise, by physical force if necessary.
