YMMV: Dream of the Red Chamber
  • Die for Our Ship: Critics and common readers have painted the "interfering characters" in a bad light, for hundreds of years.
  • Ho Yay: My goodness, these novels are blatant.
    • Happens most frequently with Baochai's brother Xue Pan, although it's subverted once when he hits on an actor who's actually straight and gets beat up for his trouble.
    • Moreover, the relationship between Bao-yu's best friend Ching Chun is paricularly obvious. They are both attracted to the other's beauty, and it's strongly implied that Bao-yu blackmails Ching Chun into a tryst.
    • Who can forget the amorous antics of the boys at school?
