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.
Ship-to-Ship Combat: Subverted, in the 'list wars' held on the two oldest fan lists, http://www.forkni-l.listserve.edu, and its sister list http://www.fkfic-l.listserve.edu, which pit ships against each other in round robin style stories. The fans go to Toronto, find their way around it and interact with canon characters as each faction, as they are called, comes up with storylines moderated by the War Mistress. These contests are still occasionally held even now.
