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.
Awesome Ego: Truman "sometimes I can't breathe when I think about how great my book is going to be" Capote.
Draco in Leather Pants: Perry to Truman in-universe and in Real Life. In In Cold Blood, the lengthy descriptions about his "beautiful" tattoos and chiseled appearance do not help the blatant Meta-Ho Yay.
Ho Yay: Truman and Perry,obviously. It's one of the central plots of the film, though it's left somewhat ambiguous as to whether or not anything could have come of it. Also a Meta example for the actual book, In Cold Blood, due to hisportrayal in said book.
Magnificent Bastard: Capote may be manipulative but he's so witty and stylish that you can't help but like him.
