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.
Broken Base: Due to the story's "bash fic" veneer, the author's fans originally were and appear to remain sharply divided over whether this story should have been written. Some were content to trust the author to do a tasteful job, and did not feel disappointed after reading it. Others regarded the very premise as unworthy, no matter how tastefully done, and refused to read it. This is part of the reason why the story has always lived in the shadow of the author's larger works.
